no boundary


that nothing is yours

is Wholeness.

echoes of Ramana

Because 'I', or 'Whole-Mind' - IS "All-Pervading",

'I' does not move.

'I' has no where to go to.

no "where" to go

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.

---Wayne Liquorman (Ram Tzu)

objectivisation is the only obstacle

Phenomena are extended in 'space' and have duration in 'time',

without which they could not be perceived,

and without which there could be no perceiver:

both must 'last' in order that anything can be known at all.

Such is the essential characteristic of phenomenality,

whereas noumenality,


knows no such limitations.

genetic inheritance + subsequent conditioning = the "programming" of the body-mind apparatus

Can you find a place,

independent of the programming,

to operate from?

---Wayne Liquorman

there is no PHENOMENAL way out

There's no place to stand

to remove yourself

from this conceptual existence.

when in doubt

By knowing

that this self-arising

pristine awareness

is buddhahood itself,

you will free yourself,

when in doubt,

from the obstacle

of hoping to obtain something

in the future.

Awakeness is All there IS

Awakeness awakens to Itself!

Awakeness is ALL there IS!

Is this what you meant by perfect?

Ram Tzu knows this...

You are perfect.

Your every defect
Is perfectly defined.

Your every blemish
Is perfectly placed.

Your every absurd action
Is perfectly timed.

Only God could make
Something this ridiculous

Direct, unobstructed experiencing is all that really arises.

Look nakedly at whatever appears at the moment it appears!

By relaxing in that state,


in which there is no grasping at appearances as something,

arises non-dualistically---

intrinsically freed.

the essence of Dzogchen in six lines

The nature of phenomena is non-dual,

but each one, in its own state, is beyond the limits of the mind.

There is no concept that can define the condition of "what is"

but vision nevertheless manifests: complete as it is.

Everything already IS, and so, without the need for effort,

one finds oneself in the self-perfected state: this is contemplation.
