There is no one separate to know what "this" is.

"This" is not a what to be known by any one.

Tuesday, March 30, 2010


So long as there's the sense of being an entity, separate from the rest of totality, there will be the sense of undergoing experience as something that happens to or for that entity.

"what is, is"

The being of separate beings is non-separate being.---Chuang Tzu

"Undifferentiated Being"

"seeker": what's the difference between you and me?

"sage": you think there's a difference.

absence of an entity to conceive either

Ultimately, the non-difference of all pairs of opposites lies in the absence of an experiencer of them.---Wei Wu Wei

from The Education of Little Tree

She looked at me steady and said, "What happened---where?"
I tried to get it out. "Granpa's dying..."
I whispered, "rattlesnake...creek bank."
Granma dropped me flat on the floor.
She grabbed a sack and was gone. She could run!
She had not said anything, "Oh Lord!" or nothing.
She never hesitated nor looked around.

there IS no entity to suffer

Identification with that("entity") which is suffering experience(as something separate) is what constitutes bondage, whereas "being-this-experience," devoid of entity, cannot be bound.---Wei Wu Wei

no place BUT home !

"We" don't have to look

In order to "see" that "this"

Is wherever "we" happen to be.

no place to go

"We" cannot be apart from "What IS" so that "It" can be our "object."

a peek inside Ramana's "tool box" of pointers

In the beginning one has to be told that he is not the body, because he thinks that he is the body only. Whereas he is the body and all else. The body is only a part. Let him know it finally. He must first discern consciousness from insentience and be the consciousness only. Later let him realise that insentience is not apart from consciousness.---Ramana Maharshi

(and no one to come back)

You stand at the edge
Ready to throw yourself in.

What a shock to discover

There is nowhere to go
And no one to throw.

---Ram Tzu

"apperceiving-mind is not divided"

The "true Dharma" is

that there is no one to have a "Dharma"

--true or untrue--

nor any Dharma to have.---Wei Wu Wei

from Creativity and Taoism by Chang Chung-yuan

Lu's method may be called comprehending the fundamental, i.e. reducing one's knowledge, and having confidence in one's self.

"The ultimate truth is so simple."---Ramana Maharshi

Of "This-Presence-Now," there is no doubt.

"direct-non volitional-apperceiving"

You don't awaken; what has been eternally awake realizes itself. That which is eternally awake is what you are.---Adyashanti


The perfect understanding of that is perfect understanding itself. And that is because only non-objectivity itself can know it.---Wei Wu Wei

"voidness of apperceiving"

Every "THING" that "we" perceive and conceive

CAN be disputed.

"THIS-NO-THING-NOW" can not.

harsh words ?

Tibetan Dzogchen features a two-pronged approach, of which one prong is missing(or weak) in most contemporary non-dual pointing. Many people, these days, are pointing to what the Tibetans call "spontaneous presence" using terms like Awareness, Being, Oneness, etc. However, most give very short shrift to what the Tibetans call "cutting up solidity", which I would call "deconstructing duality." Without a thorough exposure of the invalidity of the perceptual/conceptual basis for the dualistic worldview, these "non-dual" pointers CAN largely serve as a new belief structure(necessarily dualistic) for the intact, "individual knower" or "experiencer" OF "Awareness", "Oneness", "Presence", etc.
