this which you see before you---Huang Po

"The TRUTH" can not be hidden at all.

"Where" could "Totality" be hidden,

and from "whom" ?

non-objective existence

There is no "one" Here,

And "Here" is not a location

For any "thing."

pointers, not things

Consciousness (capitalized)

is not the awareness of something;

Consciousness is pure existence.

Existence and Consciousness

are one and the same.

Losing oneself in what is Here

Is finding that "Here" is what one IS.

What IS...the eternal, intemporal moment

It matters not if your preferred Teacher/Teaching calls it Consciousness, Heart, Mind, Love, God, Intemporality, What IS, Tao, Source, Beloved, Noumenon or a thousand other names...all are pointers to this one immutable Truth that is ALL that exists and from which you could not possibly be separate.---Wayne Liquorman

just this

There's nothing to get,

And no one to get it.

no "us" to have or do any "thing"

"Enlightenment" does not exist phenomenally

at all,

and "we" cannot have it---

because it is what-we-are!

---Wei Wu Wei

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

Without the stories, what can actually separate us?

Can you find anything, in this moment,

That can separate us?

And it's ALWAYS this moment.

---Jeff Foster

"Enlightenment/What IS" is not ABOUT any thing.

It is as it is,

that's all one can say.

---Ramana Maharshi

"Enlightenment/What IS" is not ABOUT "me"

Why are you unhappy?

Because 99.9 per cent

Of everything you think,

And of everything you do,

Is for yourself---

And there isn't one.

---Wei Wu Wei

Everything is allowed (not by you) to arise because it IS arising!

True freedom is to be just whatever's happening in the moment;

e.g. "a busy mind".

---Jeff Foster on Never Not Here

leave out the word "entirely"

...the assumption of (separate) self-existence

is not entirely necessary

to the function

of operative consciousness.

---Robert Wolfe

Volition ?

Volition is as conditioned

as any other factor

in the performance

of an action.

---Wei Wu Wei

The Soft Answer

It takes two to quarrel...

And there is nobody here.

---Wei Wu Wei

extend-ING from a false reference point

I call it "self-ING" (a verb).

There never was "A" self !

---Paul Hedderman

every "thing" equally IS

EQUANIMITY is incompatible with an I-concept.

An I-concept reacts as "volition,"

Equanimity acts but does not re-act.

Equanimity---"mind that is equal"---is NEITHER positive NOR negative.

Reacting is re-action between positivity and negativity, between Yes and No.

If you reveal equanimity "you" cannot "have" it; you must be it.

Then Yes and No have no meaning.

---Wei Wu Wei


Objectifying what I am as a subjective entity is making a "self" of what I am.

As soon as this concept becomes a reflex-action I am in bondage to that concept.

Liberation requires the abolition of that reflex-action, and the absence of the positive or negative objectification of what-I-am.

When what-I-am ceases to be a concept no bondage can remain--- for then there is no longer a conceptual entity to be bound or to be free.

Such is the meaning of "I AM THAT I AM."

---Wei Wu Wei
