Forgetting and Remembering

Forgetting and Remembering

Two sides of a coin really..
Yet..with our birth
separation shows up
and seemingly at least
a curtain is drawn
concealing our Freedom..
The separation adventure
extracts a high price..
something seems missing:
the Freedom we knew..
Separation starts searching
for the lost Freedom
intuited as close
but perceived as far..
For how long..?
Searching in wrong places
until Remembering appears
and our discovery:
Remembering is Freedom
dissolving our Forgetting..
Remember that coin...?


All -
        Well..... here's a new one (the universe is conscious) and a very interesting one at that.  Does this make sense??  Maybe.  Quantum realities may offer some validation.
CP  (a friend!)

SUBJECT:  Panpsychism

CP...I find it instructive in reading articles, such as this, to find what 
exists first, Consciousness/Mind or Matter.  Panpsychism bases tits 
theories and research on the assumption that Matter comes first, and 
that Consciousness emerges from Matter.  This is the so-called 
"hard problem" in physics or science.  The Consciousness-first 
paradigm avoids all the complexities, expressedin this article, and 
it agrees with our actual experience.  John Wheeler seems to come 
closer, compared to the other scientists cited, to a Consciousness-first 


While Matloff looks out to the stars to verify panpsychism, Christof Koch looks at humans. In his view, the existence of widespread, ubiquitous consciousness is strongly tied to scientists’ current understanding of the neurological origins of the mind.

“The only dominant theory we have of consciousness says that it is associated with complexity — with a system’s ability to act upon its own state and determine its own fate,” Koch says. “Theory states that it could go down to very simple systems. In principle, some purely physical systems that are not biological or organic may also be conscious.” (from the link above)

"The late physicist John Wheeler concluded that the apparent oddity of quantum mechanics was built on an even grander and odder truth: that the universe as a whole festers in a state of uncertainty and snaps into clear, actual being when observed by a conscious being — that is, us.

“We are participators in bringing into being not only the near and here but the far away and long ago,” Wheeler said in 2006. He calls his interpretation the “participatory anthropic principle.” If he is correct, the universe is conscious, but in almost the opposite of the way that Matloff pictures it: Only through the acts of conscious minds does it truly exist at all."  (from the link below)

Robin and Earthworm

Robin and Earthworm

Haven't seen this
in quite some time..
The pulling and then
swallowing it whole..
We forget that we
are a slower version..
We don't see the worm
the killing and packaging..
And the flesh is consumed
in the candle light..
But can we remember:
forgetting is suffering..
Forgetting the oneness:

Between the experiencer and the experienced there is experiencing. You are that experiencing alone.
You are neither the experiencer nor the object of experience.
~ Papaji



The outward story
is of a son leaving home
plunging into the multiplicity
and diversity of living
with its joys and suffering
and finally turning to father 
and home..

The father rises one morning
forgetting his radiance
seeming to become another
a separate son..
Then the remembering
after much searching
for his Home..
this prodigal life
as we are...

Dancing Moth

Dancing Moth

As a moth
approaching the flame
my mind goes searching
to find That
which it cannot find..
That seems as nothing
to the searching moth
a frightful prospect
of losing itself..
Yet withdrawal is 
not pleasing
approach I must..
The sacrifice our gift:
we are not something
we are not nothing...

F. L.Y...?


FLY may be true or false..!
False if the self to love is the ego self..
True if the Self to love is Truth
the real Self...

Love is your Self.
It is your real name and the name of every living being.
But, you will not truly know and be this Self-love until you are willing to exchange your identity for Truth.

Self Cycles

Self Cycles

Beginning in Self
separation seems to separate
 seeming two and many..
Self as body
experiences the world
with joy and suffering
and attendant questions..
Separation is revealed
as root of dis-ease and
unity seems to unify..
Self seems relieved
of body's constraints
and seems now boundless..
But..there is more:
a return is recognized
to what seemed as
separation's separation:
Self seems renewed 
with color and shape
recognizing the dream...

Planet "B"

Planet "B"

Stephen H has allowed that
which looms in thought
and projects as fear
to a search for relief from
a seeming dark dilemma..
The future is imagined
with calculating vigor
and doleful projection..
A materialist map
sounds with clarity
to the fearful and seeking:
a bold escape from Planet A..
A seeking of happiness
a search among objects 
which has occupied our thought
for centuries on end..
But Grace speaks softly
with astonishing news:
There is no Planet B
and..stand ready for this:
there is also no Planet "A"...!

"Back in May, renowned physicist Stephen Hawking made yet another doomsday prediction. He said that humanity has 100 years left on Earth, which knocked 900 years off the prediction he made in November 2016, which had given humanity 1,000 years left. With his new estimate, Hawking suggested the only way to prolong humanity's existence is for us to find a new home, on another planet (alternative source). Speaking at the Starmus Festival in Trondheim, Norway on Tuesday, Hawking reiterated his point: "If humanity is to continue for another million years, our future lies in boldly going where no one else has gone before," he explained, according to the BBC. Specifically, Hawking said that we should aim for another Moon landing by 2020, and work to build a lunar base in the next 30 years -- projects that could help prepare us to send human beings to Mars by 2025. "We are running out of space and the only places to go to are other worlds. It is time to explore other solar systems. Spreading out may be the only thing that saves us from ourselves. I am convinced that humans need to leave Earth," Hawking added.

This is the reality
we actually know..
Appearance in and of
The objective world
is nothing more..
a hidden secret...

This day of celebration
is soon to arrive..
We celebrate independence from 
 the strictures of George III..
With geographic favor
we advantaged our
acknowledged independence..
Yet in that declaration
seizing separation from King
there was mention of
something named equality..
Our president in wartime
reminds us now as then
of that declaration..
fourscore and seven years ago:
the smooth linkage of
independence and freedom..
We are asked to discover
that freedom is common
it is the same stuff
out of which each is made..
A new identity this
a new birth as freedom..
Realization surprisingly
is our real

Bondage is belief
belief in thought
belief in perception
as the truly real..
Freedom is experience
experience of thought
experience of perception
as the colors
of what I am...

Exponential Growth

Exponential Growth (Peter Diamandis)

Overview of the 6 D’s:
  1. Digitalization: Once you digitize a product or service (photography, finance, manufacturing, biology, etc...) into ones and zeros, that product or service becomes an information-based technology and it hops on an exponential growth curve. Something digitized can be replicated and transmitted for a near-zero marginal cost.
  2. Deceptive Growth: During the early days of exponential growth, the doubling of small numbers seem deceptively flat. Take for example the first Kodak Digital Camera that produced 0.01 Megapixel images. As it grew from 0.01, to 0.02, 0.04, 0.08... they all seem like zero.
  3. Disruptive Growth: What follows early deceptive growth is disruption. 30 doublings later something has grown 1 billion-fold. That first 0.01 megapixel Kodak camera is now generating a 10 megapixel image. The result of which is the complete dematerialization and demonetization of film photography.
  4. Dematerialization: Products and services are becoming bits. I no longer have a clunky GPS on the dashboard of my car, today its an APP on my phone. Think about all the 1980s or '90s technology that now comes free on your cellphone: GPS, two-way video conferencing, HD video, HD photography, radio, books, records, maps, weather and much more. In Abundance I did a quick calculation to show that today’s smart phone comes with over a million dollars’ worth of technologies from the 1980s.
  5. Demonetization: Once a product/service has become dematerialized into bits, its cost of replication and transmission is near zero and ultimately leads to their eventual demonetization. As an example, digital photography has totally demonetized the field.
  6. Democratization: As products and services dematerialize and demonetize they become available to billions of users across the planet. Today there are 3 billion people connected on planet Earth. By 2025 that will increase to 8 billion connected individuals. Create a digital banking or insurance product and you have the opportunity to market it across the globe.
We live in incredible times.
We are alive during an incredible time where exponential technologies are demonetizing and democratizing the products and services which can uplift humanity.
Energy, Transportation, Banking, Insurance, Education, Health Care, Communication, Entertainment, and Knowledge are being demonetized and available to billions on Earth. 
We will soon have the potential to meet the basic needs of every man, women and child on this planet.

See YouTube video:


I find that somehow, by shifting the focus of attention,

I become the very thing I look at,

and experience the kind of consciousness it has;

I become the inner witness of the thing.

I call this capacity of entering other focal points of consciousness, love;

you may give it any name you like.

Love says “I am everything”. Wisdom says “I am nothing”.

Between the two, my life flows.

Since at any point of time and space I can be both

the subject and the object of experience,

I express it by saying that I am

both, and neither, and beyond both.

Attention – ad tendere
Posted on April 6, 2014 by ramesam
The word “Attention” is derived from two Latin words, ad tendere, meaning “to stretch towards.”

Rupert Spira explains very clearly how attention turning towards itself is the ending of the mind.

1.  Attention Falling Back to its Source (From Rupert at Parmoor in Dec 2013) – 8:35 min:

2.  Attention and Awareness (From Rupert at Santa Sabina in Oct 2013) – 8:38 min:

3.  The Sinking of Attention into Itself (From Rupert at Santa Sabina in Feb 2014) – 13:07 min:

4.  Attention is Awareness Plus an Object (From Rupert at Mercy Center, CA in Apr 2013) – 14:53 min:

The message in these Videos is beautifully crystal clear and truly meditational, I submit.

Knowing oneself first

Knowing oneself first

This is the revolution underway:
We must know ourselves
before any-thing might
be truly known..

The strong belief in
mind and object has deluded
for days and centuries..
The belief has fostered
much confusion and suffering.. is our time:
many and increasing
are discovering that 
Knowing oneself first
clears clogged perceptions
and lubricates the way
for real knowledge of that
which appears out there...

Salutations to the sun

12 hrs
Without the light of the sun, nothing can be seen.
Light is the greatest sculptor.
It reveals the forms of all things.
Salutations to the sun.
Without the light of consciousness, neither the sun,
nor its light nor anything else can be seen.
Salutations to consciousness.
Without you, where is the world?
Without you, what would perceive the play of existence?
In satsang, you are introduced again and again
to consciousness, which is your own light.
You come to the recognition that consciousness itself
is the source of all manifestation
and that without it, nothing can be perceived to exist.
You are both consciousness and simultaneously
the perceiver of consciousness. Are you aware of this?
Without you, the perceiver of consciousness,
neither consciousness nor its content exist.
The universe is… because you are.


This is a good topic! "We need to talk the here and now."
You saved the best for last! The "here" is not a place, and the "now"
is not a time. These terms are what we are, not what we do and think.
If we would recognize this true Identity, the other issues and angers
might fall into place.. resulting in the Peace of which Jesus and other
spiritual leaders speak... ! Until then, "Sorry" seems to be the easiest

After a terrorist atrocity, I hate seeing Muslims at a news conference being forced to apologize for something they didn't do.

What you think you are..

Awakening to our true nature
is a process of birth..sometimes of the painful kind..
The stoning in scriptural stories seems external
but consider the story turned inside:
it is the struggle of the separate-self (ego)
to extend a belief in separation..
The pain is Grace extended and reminding:
You are not what you think you are...!

"Well, they'll stone you when you're trying to be so good
They'll stone you just like they said they would
They'll stone you when you're trying to go home
And they'll stone you when you're there all alone
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned." -Bob Dylan, 1966

Many assume this song is about smoking pot and getting high. Dylan insists otherwise. In 2012, Dylan told Rolling Stone: "These people aren't familiar with the Book of Acts." (for more see:  )

A world never imagined..

"Algebraic topology is like a telescope and microscope at the same time. It can zoom into networks to find hidden structures—the trees in the forest—and see the empty spaces—the clearings—all at the same time," study author Kathryn Hess said in a statement.

The Direct Path

The Direct Path

Eventually it seems
that is the only path..
Direct path to discovery
of Freedom and Peace..
Some are on paths
of hopeful discovery
searching for 
Freedom and Peace
but with indirect 
processes and goals..
Some do not search
but discover in a moment
that for which all paths
are searching..
Some it seems are those
have retired to lives
of quiet desperation...
Might we enter the
here and now
via the Direct path
knowing:  I am...?

No seems
a subjective realization
that the upper-case Self
and the lower-case self
operate together one..
We do not recognize
upper and lower
only the experience
of Truth and Beauty
and Love...


It seems that Eden (Garden)
witnessed a split
a fork in our road
confusing all of us
re: our identity..
Am I the bodyself
unhappiness in time..? I the unnamableSelf
Happiness out of time..?
self searching for Self
until at last self melts
as it shines in Self..
This mountainous discovery:
ending our search we locate
no..we become
no..we are
our only LIpurposeFE...!

Sailors and Sea...
