We are pleased to find

Nature's suggestions of 

Hidden unities.. 

A unity thus found might 

Disclose our Self  

Enclosing and making

Of our Self that which

Seems different and Other..

Gifting us to behold  the

Dreaming.. (with Meher Baba)


Excerpt from a meeting with Meher Baba:

Consciousness playing “Hide and Seek”

“I definitely know from my living experience that God [consciousness] is the one and only reality, and that all else is illusion. All that you see and hear at this moment—in this hall, our being in each other's presence, these explanations which I give and you hear, and even my incarnation - all this is a dream. Every night you go to sleep and have different kinds of dreams, yet every morning you wake up to experience anew the same old dream that you have been dreaming since your birth into your present life in illusion. You will say, “Baba, we are wide awake; we actually see you sitting before us; we can and do follow what you are explaining to us.” But you will admit that you would say the same thing to me if, in a dream, you found that you were near me and heard me telling you that all you felt, saw and heard was a dream. As long as you do not wake up from a dream, you are dream-bound to feel it to be stark reality. A dream becomes a dream  only when you wake up; only then do you tell others that the life you lived in the dream was just a dream. Good or bad, happy or unhappy, in reality the dream is then recognized as having been absolutely nothing. Therefore I repeat that, although you are now sitting before me and hearing me, you are not really awake. You are actually sleeping and dreaming. I say this because I am simultaneously awake in the real sense and yet dreaming—with one and all—the dreams which all dream. “All your pleasures and difficulties, your feelings of happiness and misery, your presence here and your listening to these explanations, are all nothing but a vacant dream on your part and mine. There is this one difference: I also consciously know the dream to be a dream, while you feel that you are awake….”

Ultimate religion..


The ultimate religion is Self-realization—it is an unbroken and fearless state of being.


Freedom and Sleeping...



-John McIntosh

Since the fall of Conscious Awareness into the belief in separation and the dream universe(s) that manifested from that illusion, there have always been beacons of Light [the SELF in dream bodies] radiating Truth ‘into’ the dream … usually in obscurity. Some few have come forward visibly to ‘point’ to the illusion of ‘who you are NOT’ and from this, countless belief systems unfolded, diluted by their follower’s remaining conditioning … nevertheless, shining a little Truth into the darkness of the Grand Dream.

In this moment there are many who are approaching the threshold of Freedom and all of humanity benefits from the ‘knowing’ that emanates naturally from their emptiness. Those few who are completely ‘without’ conditioning and who remain in a physical dream body, ‘influence’ the Awareness of the slumbering God-SELF of humanity more than the entire affect of 7.5 billion well meaning sleeping beings.

Such is the limitless Love the SELF extends ‘to’ IT SELF.




There are these

We know..and they present

Opportunities for separation

To assert once

Claim our self..

Yet..on second glance..

These might Lighten our

Attention toward That 

In which they swim..

Springing gratitude

For a discovery again

Of infinite worth...

Stillness shaping..


Stillness shaping..

The energy of life

Shaping the Stillness

Which we are..

The appeal of shaping

Standing out from Stillness

Is  apparent life..

Not recognizing our departure

From Stillness demands our

Shape to start searching

Zigzaging..until a new

Discovery of our point of

Departure..or not..

All the above..All of it..

Is Stillness shaping...

It is knowing and acceptance 

Of a small dose of what seemed a trigger to realize

All that seems external is

Temporary cloaking with

A Cloak made of raw Self...

This is the duality..the 

Separation..which serves

To occupy those searching

For what seems..

We search and stumble and

Search more to fill that

Interminable gap..

A lifetime of searching..?

Apparently the Truth eludes..

Until a calm or stormy day

Arrives..and Nothing

Wholeness Happening..


Wholeness Happening..

When the shift..which

Is not a shift..(comes)

It is our simple recognition:

Wholeness is what has

Always been happening..

This is a (shift) from a

Herd immunity..made of

Varieties and boundaries

Which have fixed our days...

The Trio... (responding to a FB friend..)


(Responding to a Facebook friend..)

First there were two of us

Then there was a third

When we asked a few

Questions..such as

Where did we come from?

(Not yet:  Who am I..) there are three

You and me and the 

One out there..a trio..

Separation still reigns..

And we wait forever..


You created god/non- duality to fill the graveyard of your life

........ what a fucking sham......what are you going to do about that?

break it down

No mercy shown 

Watch her cry 

Same old story

Watching forever

Waiting forever


Watching love grow

Forever watching love grow

Wheels turning

Break it down 


Watching love grow 

Towards this time

Watching forever.

It's got to be this time

Forever watching love grow

Love grow

Happenings of the Whole....(Joan Tollifson)


"...I would describe the self as a kind of mental image, an idea, a mirage, or an intermittent thought that claims ownership and authorship before or after the fact: I was thinking, I went shopping, I made a decision, It happened to me. The actuality is an ownerless, authorless happening of the whole. In truth, we are no-thing and everything. And yet, we can’t deny that we are also appearing as a particular, unique individual with a personality, preferences, opinions, interests, aversions, likes and dislikes. But we can come to see that ALL of this is a choiceless happening, a movement of the totality, and that even what seems most personal is really not personal at all.

We can still use personal pronouns and tell our life story, but it is all held much more lightly."

The Chooser..


The Chooser..

It may seem fundamental

That we have choices..

Limited perhaps by the

Choices of others..and

Many external things..

But when we recognize

The above as spoken by

The separate self (ego?)

Separation seems rampant

In the limitations and


Back Away we must to

Discover the limited mind

Only seems to choose after

The choice is Made...

Fall in love with the void. (Francis Lucille)


Fall in love with the void. 

The emptiness of the now which makes everything possible, which has room for everything possible, which has room for everything. Fall in love with the infinite mirror, with the I AM. Everything else, feelings, perceptions, and thoughts, are the packaging, the box. The emptiness is the diamond inside, transparent, luminous, rare, priceless, but ever present.

Francis Lucille

Nothing Being Everything..

Nothing Being Everything..

This key formulation

Which is not a formulation

Brings our finite minds

To the edge of Recognition

Of the extant of Oneness

The very Vastness of 

Being..and invites our


Not as a person..but as the

Freedom and Joy of

Nothing Being Everything...!

As in Artificial Intelligence..

Replicates the so-called

Separate self..

Machine autonomy

Approximates..closer and 

Closer..our own body/mind..

Making and driving our cars

Delivers precision and safety..

But is there this hesitation:

The attraction of AI

(Making exile more comfortable)

Delays discovery o

Who we are...?

The Owl..


The Owl..

The poet speaks

Of unspeakable horror 

A rabbit's scream in

The owl's clutches..

What to say..?..let's say

There is No-thing exterior..

Yet we suffer the rabbit

As we do..our perceptions

Of war..division..plague..

Yet..All is within and

No-thing exterior...

When the owl is less than exquisitely swift and perfect, the scream of the rabbit is terrible. But the scream of the owl, which is not of pain and hopelessness and the fear of being plucked out of the world, but of the sheer rollicking glory of the death-bringer, is more terrible still. When I hear it resounding through the woods, and then the five black pellets of its song dropping like stones into the air, I know I am standing at the edge of the mystery, in which terror is naturally and abundantly part of life, part of even the most becalmed, intelligent, sunny life — as, for example, my own. The world where the owl is endlessly hungry and endlessly on the hunt is the world in which I live too. There is only one world.

To dissolve in the

Silence as Refuge... (with Gangaji)


“When there is a storm of challenging circumstances raging around you, do you know where to take refuge?” 

At this time many people across the globe are being challenged, whether by the specter of Covid-19, by racial tension, by political turmoil, or by natural disaster. These are challenging times and they are complicated times. Yet the message that I offer, and the message that my teacher offered to me and his teacher offered before him, is simple: There is a precious space of refuge within every living being, no matter the times we are living in or our individual circumstances. Regardless of all that may be swirling like a storm, externally or internally, there is a wellspring of pristine silence within you that remains unmoving and unaffected whatever the events.

Pure, conscious silence is peace. Pure silence is love. Silence is who you are. Silence is awareness, aware of itself as awareness. This silent awareness is what your body has appeared in, what the events of your life have appeared in, what everything around you is appearing in. Throughout it all, this silence remains at peace, filled with love and conscious of itself, whether you are consciously aware of it or not.

This silence is not a lack of anything. It is not a silence that denies events in the present or past. It is not a silence that represses the truth that must be spoken. It is a silence filled with so much of itself that there is nothing else, and nothing separate from it. I celebrate this silence in each of you, and I recommend it as the point of discovery, a point of inquiry. No matter what is occurring in your life, in your mind, in your emotions, your body, or your environment, you are free to inquire, has this pure silence really gone anywhere?

Rather than questioning where current events are headed, how bad is it going to get, and how it will affect you, you can instead—at least in this moment—give your attention to the silent core of your being.  Give your questions to this silence. That silent core remains unmoving and unaffected by it all. Silence is your refuge—your refuge from the storm.

Energy Shift


The Energy Shift

As we are Aware of our Self

Living in but not of the world..

We apparently retain splashes of

Our separation conditioning..

A renewal arrives with

Remembering..our original

Energy shift..allowing a

Fiery cleansing..restoring our

Concealed Joy...

Labor Day


Labor Day

A day recalling

Past doing and achieving..

And demanding of decency..

Working and supporting

Abundance speaking..

Ideal colorings bringing

Nostalgic happiness..

Enter the pandemic

With stirrings and fear..

Yet..perhaps pointing to

Our unknown Livelihood:

Abundance unbounded...

Fear of death

The lenses we use

Delineate and separate..

Let us imagine:

Our lenses

As vital for our vision

Without which..blurring 

And uncertainty 

Become our world..

Losing our lenses would 

Likely bring fears untold..

Yet..might the blurring

Turn our attention to know 

Who we Are..and the 

Fleeting nature of all

Which seems outside...?




Appears as a

Bedrock of restraint

In our religions..

Cages of beliefs

Freezing the mind

Shading the Source..

A new era.. (with Tony Parsons)


A New Era..

A sudden Recognition

Experiencing of Permanence

Seems occurring 

In these days of chaos

Anxiety and pain..

The externals we carried

Conditioning our lives are

Absent or do not satisfy..

Some have questioned

Others have surrendered

Heralding a new Peace..


A New Era...

"As the apparent story of human life on earth seems to move into a new era, it is interesting that a unique and surprising perception of the human condition has also simultaneously arisen.

When human beings appeared on earth they were like any other animal but with the addition of a more complex and sophisticated brain. This brain developed in such a way that part of it assumed that the world it inhabited was a separate subject object reality which it saw as possibly threatening its own survival. Consequently it constructed a centre, a self conscious identity, as a further investment in its survival and a possible influence in manipulating what it presumed to be a dualistic reality. This is apparently contracted energy arising in boundless energy.

Hence the sense of I, the self, the me, was born, together with the belief that it was real as was everything else that was happening. Out of this experience of separation arose a need to understand and to know the meaning and purpose of life.

Inevitably, this demand for guidance or meaning attracted a multitude of responses in the form of religions, philosophies, teachings and disciplines which could feed this personal, insatiable hunger.

Within all of this dualistic communication there was also an attempt to investigate the possibility of an impersonal explanation for existence which could be seen from a singular or so-called “non-dual” perspective. This kind of communication seems to have originated in the East with Advaita Vedanta, Lao Tzu, Long Chempa, Huong Po, Zen Buddhism and in the West, Christian mysticism.

However, all of these communications, without fail, directed their message towards personal choice and supported them with personal advice and teachings or processes intended to lead the follower along a path towards transformation. It was as though so-called non-duality was still seen as a state or a “something” that could be acquired and personally experienced.

More recently there have arisen some contemporary communications based on scientific and psychological evidence, logic and reason. They are abundant with complex and convoluted explanations, often accompanied by a set of contemporary commandments. All of this is directed to the self and confined to the limitations of a dualistic perspective, just like everything that went before.

However, it seems that a unique and radical communication has appeared very recently. Because it recognizes the concept of self as illusory and the idea of seeking as futile, it offers nothing of any use or value to the apparent seeking energy. All of the dualistic story of the person which is believed to be real and to have meaning and purpose, is only the appearance of nothing. There is no-one and nothing left but the singular immediacy of nothing apparently happening.

This seems to be the only revelation of unconditional love which engenders a resonance whilst also being unknowable."

Tony Parsons

I Am..


I Am..

What is the simple experience..?

Shared Perennially

With all traditions..

We jump to the words

Which qualify the two above..

Until we realize these two

Are the gateway to discover our 

True Identity:
