from ch. 8 of "All Else Is Bondage"

To per-ceive means "thoroughly to take hold of", but metaphysically there is no one to take hold of anything and nothing to take hold of. Therefore perception is the first stage of the conceptualisation process, and the two elements--perception and conception--form one whole, and that one whole is the mechanism whereby we create SAMSARA.---Wei Wu Wei

"there's no room (or time) for anything else"

In the immediacy, what you're seeking, you already are.---Sailor Bob

identity is a concept

There is nothing in what I am to be bound. Bondage, and the consecutive suffering---which is all suffering---is entirely dependent on the idea of an objective I, that is a "me". But no such contradiction-in-terms has ever existed, exists, or ever could BE. Moreover, no object could exist as such either, so how could I exist as an object?---Wei Wu Wei

Ordinarily one thinks, "I am living my life." However, the "I" and "my life" are concepts. Only the "liv-ING" is actual.

"You're seeing things."

Perception(cognizing things) is a constructing in space and time. Without an extending from some reference point, there is no "space" or "time" and thus, no basis for "perception".

"knock, knock"

Wei Wu Wei tells us that no such "thing" as a "self" exists, or ever could exist.
Because it would require a second self to know the first!

"The Absolute"

It is often said that "the Absolute" is hidden, but nothing could be more untrue.
What we are as "I" is everywhere and always. "I" cannot hide: from whom could "I" be hidden? To play hide-and-seek with myself is a game that even small children do not play.---Wei Wu Wei

"spontaneous presence"

The Negative Way demonstrates that there is nothing to grasp, and no one to try.

Who wants to know?

"There's a difference between understanding this stuff...AND TRULY LETTING GO; and letting everything be. It's obvious."---Suzanne Foxton on Conscious TV


In direct-timeless-apperceivING, no central point of reference ("me") can become established---that takes "time", and there isn't any.

nothing to get... or lose

In Non-duality, there isn't anything.---Wayne Liquorman

from "Open Secret", chapter 70 (cont.)

There is no other apart from self,
No non-being apart from being,
No non-manifestation apart from manifestation,
Not because that is conceptually inevitable,
But because their mutual existence is Apperceiving.---Wei Wu Wei

There's no there there.

Where do you stand to assert that this is not real?---Wayne Liquorman
