Blood is circulating; breath is going out and in. There is sound and there is silence. Whatever I presume or imagine myself to be; whatever I choose to identify with in any given moment, such as this one, seems to have either nothing or everything to do with it all...

Can you imagine nothing? No people, no earth, no universe, no consciousness, no anything; just eternal nothingness without witness?

So far for me there has always been something. Even in the deepest sleep, still, I am. I may not remember, but I have no evidence that I am non-existant in any moment that I look. Always, there I am, whatever it is that is me.

The universe is only appearances in my awareness. Space, time, trees, houses, people, these hands that are typing on this keyboard, the thoughts that are occurring as they do – these things are all external, secondary to the consciousness of them, secondary to me, whatever it is that I am. They are all in the category of observed things, and observed things come and go; none of them are me or mine; none of them can ever be presumed to be real apart from me.

072913k If it is possible for me not to exist, then it is possible for this entire universe not to exist too. In fact it is certain. When I cease to exist, the universe will cease to exist too. It’s obvious that there can be no universe without me because I am an essential part of it. In fact, I am prior to it.

Sitting here, trying to imagine what nothing would be like, the thoughts settle down and I find I turn inward on myself. To get to nothing, I have to go through me. Is it possible for me not to exist? What is it, actually, that I am?

032717a Identity: Identity is a lie. It is the basic lie we tell ourselves. It is simply not possible for the mind to comprehend who and what we are. The mind can only discern what we are not; and, what we are not encompasses everything we can possibly presume that we are.

All identity, separate from the Whole, is artificial, a mental construct. It doesn't exist in nature. Nature is One and wild and free. Identity is self-imposed slavery and imprisonment.

As identity is a lie, everything attached to it is and can only be artificially attached and thus is a double lie.

The ability and right to travel is natural, for example. Moving from one place to another place is not dependent upon identity in nature. Other than humans, all creatures on Earth move about without asserting and proving identity. Only contemporary evil and brainwashed humans make travel dependent upon forms of identity such as driver's licenses, passports and visas.

The ability and right to exchange goods & services is natural too. Money, as defined by anything that has intrinsic value and doesn't vary in quality, exists in nature not dependent upon identity. A silver coin doesn't have to have your image and name stamped into it in order for you to make use of it. No service you are able to perform for another is rendered better by having and having to have a license.

The framework of our surveillance police state society is contrived by artificially attaching identity to everything we do in life.

Freedom is natural. Our belief in and dependence upon identity has made our society a perversion and a prison.

There is only one Self.

030316l46 As you know, physics and enlightened ones tell us; and, indeed, our own deep self-inquiry reveals to us that:
We are not at all what we have all presumed or imagined ourselves to be.
Nothing we perceive or conceive can be who we are.
Nothing apparent, perceived or conceived is real.
We are not the body.
We are not the mind.
Consciousness is prior to and includes what we call matter and mind; not the other way around.
We are not in the world. The world is in us.
Time & space and birth & death are not aspects of reality. They are attributes of our perception (mind).
mdbfthg9L71rjdn Reality is always and only Here Now.
Every event is an effect and expression of the Whole.
Reality and the Self are the same thing.
There is only one Self.
It is the same Self in everything.
I Am That.
There is no other I.

No wonder it is a synchronicitous universe.
No wonder astrology works.
No wonder tarot and I ching work.
No wonder it feels so personal.
It’s personal and cosmic and present all at the same time, namely now.
This is the only time & space one can Be. Every time & place else is a dream.

111314p71 Our waking world is a dream.
Our sleeping world is a dream.
In deep sleep, we’re not there.
But, what is there even when we’re not?
I Am. The same One Who Is always spontaneously Here Now in between & behind thoughts.
I Am non-local. I Am nowhere & everywhere. Eternally, I Am all there is or ever could Be.

I Am the Peace. I Am the Freedom. I Am Being, Consciousness & Bliss.
I am Heaven. I Am the Whole.
You are the Whole. Wake up!
Consciousness is the Revolution.; and You are a renegade come Here to bring Light to Your Self.

nisargadatta_maharaj Devote Yourself and Surrender to Me, your real Self.
Sing my praises!
Surrender your fears & concerns and fake sense of identity to Me.
Let the mind become quiet and subtle.
Let go and see that I am the Doer. Not ‘you’. And,that there Is a Divine Plan.
Be Here Now.
032914a Be Free. Be Blissful. Simply be effortlessly non-resistant and silently witness that It all happens by Itself, in Love.

How many thought per day does a gnani have?

0. No personal thoughts arise as there is no longer any person or ever was. It is all only God’s concern and God only spontaneously & naturally does or says what the moment is. This moment and God are not separate things.

Doesn’t a gnani who is writing something have to have thoughts while writing?

Gnanis live in fathomless Reality.

How many thought per day does an average human being have?

Who can count? Fear & desire keep the mind nearly continually dream occupied (other than the healing respite of deep sleep) whether awake or asleep.


022217q " If you’re talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain. Neo, sooner or later you’re going to realize, just as I did, that there’s a difference between knowing the path, and walking the path." ~ The Matrix

What we call life…is the combination of the Five Aggregates, a combination of physical and mental energies. These are constantly changing; they do not remain the same for two consecutive moments. Every moment they are born and they die. ‘When the Aggregates arise, decay and die, O bhikkhu, every moment you are born, decay, and die.’ This, even dow during this life time, every moment we are born and die, but we continue. If we can understand that in this life we can continue without a permanent, unchanging substance like Self or Soul, why can’t we understand that those forces themselves can continue without a Self or a Soul behind them after the non-functioning of the body?” ~ Walpola Rahula

"I" is maya.

How can Ammachi be for real; i.e. enlightened, being as she publically identifies with being the Divine Mother and projects that all of us are (only) her children? See immediately below.

AmmaBhagavan: Oneness University

No one who is enlightened would identify with anything. When there is Realization (not mere mental understanding) that the only thing that exists is the One Divine Self and that It Is All There Is, there is no use for identity at all, as there is only One, not two.

Therefore, no one who is enlightened is any more enlightened than any other enlightened being. Every (illusory, separate) entity has their own unique path to Reality, but the Reality is the same Reality that everyone who emerges out of the dream or the sleep or the maya awakens to.

There are all kinds of levels to the persons and the paths – levels of authenticity, levels of heart, levels of intelligence, levels of knowledge, levels of awareness, levels of talent, levels of acquired skills (including spiritual skills), etc., but there are no levels to the destination.

There are all kinds of systems and attributes and descriptions of mind. There are none in Reality. Reality Is Reality. Even time & space are not attributes of Reality. Time & space are attributes only of perception and mind. Reality is timelessly present always only Here & Now, where mind does not reach. Mind can ‘exist’ only in the past or the future, which are not aspects of Reality. One can call It being, consciousness, love and bliss, but no words can really describe It.

Though it is very rare, indeed, enlightenment is all of our birthright. It (alone) is (radically) real. Liberal New-Agers generally deny enlightenment or at least pooh pooh and are embarrassed and awkward to talk about it as anything more than metaphor. Most espouse that there is a higher self that may continually get even higher, somehow. The truth is: there is no self, higher or lower other than in illusion land; and, it is an error (the basic error) to presume otherwise. It is also a major mistake to deny that there exist those who have attained, for real, for natural law dictates that there always is.

There are no prerequisites to enlightenment other than intelligence, earnestness and guts; and these three things are really all one thing that may be called conscious integrity or fearless devotion to what is real. This can be inspired and motivated and clarified by another, by a projected ‘other’ or guru, but it cannot be transmitted by one to another, no matter the magnificence of the enlightened guru.

Fearless integrity cannot be handed to or zapped to the student or disciple. Fearless integrity can only be surrendered to by the ripe disciple, whether there is a physical guru or not.

No one who is enlightened or realized or awake would cede to any authority other than their own divine, universal, impersonal (Real) Self, because that is all that’s real to one who has awakened to Reality. Certainly, an awakened being will have much affection (an understatement, for sure) for the Guru or gurus who assisted them on their personal way, but that or those gurus would no longer be looked up to as an authority by them in any way after they have actually awakened to the reality that all that can be presumed (by any mind) to be personal is bogus.

Only unenlightened people will fit themselves into the hierarchy of any so-called spiritual path. Only unenlightened people will care about certifications, whether on the giving or the receiving end. In other words, all spiritual certifiers and certifiees are deaf, dumb and blind to Reality; i.e., not awake as well as not enlightened, which can only be the same thing.

If any of the statements above can be shown to be in error, perhaps Oneness University is a valid path. Otherwise, how can Oneness University be other than just another con game of self deception and conscious delusion; a massive self importance/ appeasement society; a mile marker on obviously many paths - but not a sincere sanctuary to make one’s spiritual home?

bentinho-massaro Bentinho Massaro: Bentinho Massaro's message is an appealing and perhaps slick combination of Adyashanti (spiritual awakening) and Tony Robbins (motivation, self-help & personal power), which can only be a contrived, compromised mix, being as one side is about seeing the fallacy of and transcending ego while the other side is about celebrating, nurturing and supporting it (ego). He rationalizes the inherent contradictions very charmingly and digestibly for spiritual dabblers and young soul seekers.

He's a young sweet guy with a beautiful smile, a sincere heart and a lot of borrowed knowledge to supplement his undoubtedly genuine self-inquiry experience. He may actually believe he is enlightened as he publicly affirms, so it's not easy to dismiss him as merely another clever conman. His mental understanding is profound, at least compared to the average spiritual aspirant; and, he can deliver what can appear to be a gem of wisdom here and there; but, he relies too much on reasoned conclusions to be an authentic enlightened being.

'Personal' Report #5

Submitted from Tiruvannamalai, March 18, 2012

Obviously, as you know, Hell is just in the mind.
"I" is The Seductive Devil. No "I" is Heaven.
You don't have to physically die to have no "I".
You don't have to physically live to have one, as you're not even (merely) physically living right now.
In fact, if you die with an "I", you'll just dream up a new magnificent Hell.
Outside of fantasy, the only Reality is silence and peace and freedom and bliss and loving Heaven.
Easy to say. Easier than easy to be.
It is what you are. It is what everyone is; even the dolphins and the whales and the elephants and cockroaches and amoebas and rocks and the aliens. It is what God is.
And, only God exists.
It is obvious, isn't it?
Only imagination creates the savior Satan Claus in the sky. and imagination is definitively not real.
What is outside of fantasy? The witness of the fantasizer, which is just a hint of what's really going on.
There is no time. There is no space.
There is no train wreck that is about to happen. There is no train and there is no destination.
We are already here now. We have never been anywhere or anytime other than here now.
Here Now is not a time and/or a place.
It is the Reality.
It is the only God.
It is the only "I"; and, it doesn't have a name.
Empty of identity or boundary, It is FULL with whatever IS.
The entire fantasy universe comes after IT.
Obviously a Universe cannot even be perceived without a perceiver; and, even the particular perceiver is a fantasy. Take a look. It disappears as soon as you do.
What is there to cling to or resist; i.e. cause any suffering?
You don't make the blood course through the veins. You don't make the breath breathe. You don't bring the thoughts or emotions or sensations in front of the perception.
Take a look right Now. IT is delicious, isn't it?
Aum-Ammas-Cave What is underneath the doubt; what is underneath the All; what's indisputably REAL is only 'miraculous' DIVINITY, telling "me" to accept what is and know that God only Loves.
I am You; You are Me, just in another apparent incarnation.
You are released. "I" is released.
"I" REST my case.

Sorry. "I"'m not enlightened; "I"'m just babbling to my Self before Arunachala on this Glorious Sunday afternoon. Please Disregard Everything "I've" said.

"I" love you.
"I"'me sorry.
Please forgive me.
Thank you.
