Everyone Thinks It’s ‘Me’

A primer on non-duality and meditation (Cross-posting summary article for submission, mostly familiar ground for regular readers) Within this celestial, fractal reality there is the illusion of separation – the duality that arises in the mind. We are born into the world as one and we have no idea of ‘me’, the separate self, for… Continue reading Everyone Thinks It’s ‘Me’

Stop Leaving and You Will Arrive

When the rejection of mental activities becomes continuous and automatic, you will begin to have the experience of the Self. – Annamalai Swami Tricky wording, but the capital “S” self referred to here means the one, enlightenment, “god”, just simply being as Rupert puts it. When the practice of meditation becomes crystallized, the mental activity… Continue reading Stop Leaving and You Will Arrive

What is Non-Duality?

The seeking creates the separation. The striving ensures the dissatisfaction. It splits the world apart, subject and object, me and that thing I want. Me and that thing I must avoid. The continual action of the mind makes the suffering and anxiety inevitable, it is a feature of the system. Side note: I’ll start recording… Continue reading What is Non-Duality?

The Mind in Motion

The full quote I mention in the video. Also, the “there there” quote is from Gertrude Stein, definitely not Donald Rumsfeld. Just a little bit off on that one haha..

Calm During the Storm

All quiet over here as we watch the geopolitical events unfold and continue the preparations for Neti Neti empire-building. In the macro sense things are progressing nicely, in their usual bizarre and convoluted fashion (as humans are wont to do). We are, and have been for some years, in the midst of World War 3.… Continue reading Calm During the Storm

Gary Weber

Gary Weber is the pioneer and only person I am aware of who has presented the neuroscience side of meditation as it relates to the default mode network for a larger, non-medical audience. Without his work I probably wouldn’t have written my book in the first place, as this discovery is critical to bringing the… Continue reading Gary Weber

The Ocean

As a wave, seething and foaming, is only the ocean So all creation, streaming out of the Self, is only the Self. -Ashtavakra Gita Not a whole lot you can add to that. The ‘Gita’ was written around 500 BC, and serves as a foundational text for Advaita Vedanta. Advaita translates to “non-secondness”. Today, this… Continue reading The Ocean

Walk on Water

I saw a man walking on the water Coming right at me from the other side Calling out my name, “Do not be afraid” Feet begin to run, a pounding in my brain I don’t wanna go, I don’t wanna go -Creedence Clearwater Revival As we draw near to this holiday season and celebration of… Continue reading Walk on Water

Not This, Not That

Bit slow here at the enlightenment factory as relocation and other obligations have restrained my creative output at the moment. Not to fear, the Neti Neti office is well on its way and I thought it fitting that the Osho YouTube channel released this video today. Neither this, nor that. I AM the great ocean… Continue reading Not This, Not That

Leave ‘me’ out of it

Heaven wheels above you, displaying to you her eternal glories, and still your eyes are on the ground. – Dante The only thing that is missing or imperfect or wrong with this moment is literally the finite mental and emotional process saying “there’s something wrong”, “there’s something missing”, etc. Removing this continual flow of mental… Continue reading Leave ‘me’ out of it
