The First Encounter

Now the reason that my life may be useful, although from most other standpoints it seems, even to me, quite trivial, is that I have led three lives. I have three chapters, each of which has led quite naturally in to the next although at the time it didn’t seem very natural. The first chapter.. read more →

Support & Surrender

The wild geese do not intend to cast their reflection and the water has no mind to receive their image. That was the first message I got from the first fortune cookie I opened when I returned from India. That seems like a fitting contract for these writings, and perhaps the full implications of that.. read more →

Navigating the Mind Fields

When I started to dive deeper into my being, I began to rest in a place where I simply became an environment for people to run through their projections without my buying into them. When I see people start to talk now it’s very much like the Dr. Strange comic books, where you see the.. read more →

The Paradox of the Body

  A funny thing about me is that I never get to talking about the body. I write beautiful notes on it, but I never talk about it because I don’t believe anything I say. I’ve said these things before but I’m going to keep saying them until I can hear them. Here’s my predicament:.. read more →

Ram Dass on Loving Awareness

When talking about awareness, most of us identify with our awareness through the ego, through the mind and senses. But the true self is in the middle of our chest, in our spiritual heart. So, to get from ego to the true self I said “I am loving awareness.” Loving awareness is the soul. I.. read more →

I Am Loving Awareness

My Guru, Neem Karoli Baba (Maharaji) has affected me by loving me, and therefore I love you. So this is a meditation. You attend with your mind to a point in the heart space in the middle of the chest and you will say “I am loving awareness. I am loving awareness.” You were “I.. read more →

Compassion & Tithing

So, an economic system is one of the systems of which you’re a part, and a system in which you’re looking at your greed, and your distribution of money, and your inheritance, and your tithing, how much you’re giving away, and how much you could give away. My best evidence is that excess inheritance is.. read more →

Chidakash: Merging Love & Consciousness

  Chidakash is the place where consciousness and love merge, where they become the same thing. It’s where the pure aspects of all qualities come together; a timeless and nameless space where everything is present, where you know everything, but you’re not attached to anything. There is no clinging, yet there is awareness of it.. read more →

Viewing Suffering as Grace

  The fact is, I can’t take away people’s death and suffering when I’m working with their death and suffering. But I can be a presence where they can shift their consciousness in a way so they don’t experience their death and suffering the same way. But I can’t take away all the suffering from.. read more →

The Medium of Politics

One of the systems we’re part of, of course, is the political system. We may wish we weren’t part of it often, but we are. And all of those people playing with the power of the medium of politics, and its effect on the media and its effect on collective human consciousness, and those people.. read more →
