Thought isn't what we think it is

Check it out. Look at a thought. It isn't a set of concrete words or pictures "in time". It's like a cloud that is one with the whole of being. A thought is amorphous. A thought doesn't exist independently, just as nothing exists independently. A thought is always changing in the expanse of mind as a cloud moves in the sky; part of the sky, but never a thing with any permanence whatsoever. Look deeply into a thought and it will prove to be undefinable; incomprehensible. Actually, a thought never really exists as we think it does. So where does that leave us? Thoughtless? Ha ha ha ha

Are We Just Brains?

Can a brain apprehend the wondrous intelligence of being?

You Are This Being

There may be infinite universes of energetic experience,
but only this one Being in and of which they appear and disappear.

You are this Being.

You are There in the Midst

Look into anything.

Look into any object, thought, sensation, feeling.

Look without conceptualizing and attempting to label or describe.

Look nakedly and see what you find.

If you look honestly and deeply all you will find is vast mystery.

And there you are in the midst of the seeing.

Thursday, September 10, 2009


In appearance you are born and then die.

In reality you are eternally present in the midst of the appearance.

Can you find a beginning to your self?

Can you see an ending?

Only in imagination.

Look Beneath Concepts

Look at reality with direct seeing.

Look beneath conceptualization.

Any conceptual interpretation of reality is illusion.

Beliefs, imagination, labeling, are unnecessary for being.

No Description

Nothing can completely describe or illustrate the source of all because everything that appears is merely a phantom expression of that mystery.

Expressions and descriptions occur nonetheless.

What you are cannot be pinned down.

Relax as you are and be.

Have a listen.

More Nisargadatta Quotes

"Once you realize that the world is your own projection, you are free of it. You need not free yourself of a world that does not exist, except in your own imagination! However is the picture, beautiful or ugly, you are painting it and you are not bound by it. Realize that there is nobody to force it on you, that it is due to the habit of taking the imaginary to be real. See the imaginary as imaginary and be free of fear."

"There is only imagination. It has absorbed you so completely that you just cannot grasp how far from reality you have wandered. No doubt imagination is richly creative. Universe upon universe are built on it. Yet they are all in space and time, past and future, which just don't exist."

"There can be no continuity in existence. Continuity implies identity in past, present and future. No such identity is possible, for the very means of identification fluctuate and change. Continuity, permanency, these are illusions created by memory, mere mental projections of a pattern where no pattern can be."

Whatever You Think

Whatever you think is going on is your imagination.

Nisargadatta Quotes

"Concern yourself with your mind, remove its distortions and impurities. Once you had the taste of your own self, you will find it everywhere and at all times. Therefore it is so important that you should come to it. Once you know it, you will never lose it."

"In reality there is only consciousness. All life is conscious, all consciousness -alive. Even the stones are conscious and alive."

- Nisargadatta

Spinning Thoughts

Focusing on thoughts spins an illusion of a 'me' in 'time'.

There is Awareness

Everywhere you 'look' there is awareness,

and in the midst of this awareness that is 'seeing'

is everything that appears within, in and as awareness.

It's not 'awareness' and 'things appearing'. That would be other than oneness.

Impermanence is awareness appearing as things.

Who is Suffering?

Suffering is the bliss of being.

Who can claim it?

There is no one to claim it.

Suffering, bliss, all of it is the experience that appears as being.

Bang! What a Boot!

The infinite appearance of divine intelligence is incredible!

What is light? What is a pencil? What is anything?

What is a boot?

What a fantastic appearance of divine intelligence a boot is.

How utterly incomprehensible it is that there is such a thing as a boot!

And the word that describes it, sorely limited as it is, what an astounding thing that word is.


And what is it to not care about the magical appearance of a boot?

"Ho hum, it's just a boot. Who cares?"

What another fantastic appearance of divine intelligence that is.

All is the expression of the mystery of divine intelligence.

This is It

The miracle unfolding right here, right now, is the absolute, divine intelligence, God, or whatever you like to call It.

There are no 'things' and 'God', no 'people' and 'God', no 'me' and 'you' and 'God'.

There is nothing but this absolute, divine intelligence, and there's no definitive way to place a description on it as it miraculously unfolds in, as and around us.

The divine approaches the divine within the unfolding miracle of the divine.

Right here, right now, is all that there is. Right here right now is ever impermanent.

Absolute divine intelligence is right here, right now in and as everything appearing and disappearing.

You can't put your finger on it. You can't put a label on it.

This is it.

End of Karma

You are not only what you appear to be,

a separate entity living amongst other separate entities.

You are the entire universe,

and even beyond that.

Your Life is the Gift

There is no state of security for the individual.

Look into this.

Memories fade. Change is constant. The body will die.

There is no stopping these.

Your life is the gift.

Inquire, investigate, look into whatever presents, whatever appears.

Nothing is passed up, all is looked into until the looking transforms into a new inquiry.

'See' whatever you look into is made of a fantastic eruption of consciousness energy from emptiness.

Objects, people, emotions, thoughts, sounds, sights, smells, sensations, tastes, likes and dislikes, everything, nothing, all of this is the self into which inquiry opens.

Look wholly with the entirety of what is available, of what you have access to.

Being inquires into Being.

See For Yourself

All the wonderful books, the words, the pointers, the talks, the teachers, the teachings, the blessings, the satsangs, all are immediately ripped up, set afire and dumped in the ash can of dreaming.

In fact any and all experience whether wonderful or horrible are already gone.

Where are they now?

They don't exist beyond thoughts.

You are the truth in which all experience occurs.
