There is only ‘this’. Nothing exists outside of ‘this’. ‘This’ Is everything. ‘Everything’ includes ’Nothingness’. Why? ’Nothingness’ Is ‘Everything’.

And ultimately there is no difference between them.

This Is the ‘Oneness’.

Everything that happens always happens in the Self sometimes called this ‘Oneness’. There is nothing else.

Perfection always persists. Particularly interesting, is that imperfection is often summarily dismissed as separate and undesirable from the ‘viewpoint of imperfection’. From the ‘viewpoint of perfection’, there is only perfection. It is a matter of viewing ‘everything’ from Nothingness where there are no real boundaries. And there is no real distance between the concepts except when making them more than an ephemeral concept. Every ‘thing’ is equal.

Beingness is not conceptual. If we insists on conceptualizing ‘It’, we then insists on an artificial and conditional existence. We then insist on redefining existence ‘imperfectly’ to suit our ‘ideas’ of self. We then fail to see the Self that connects all the dots. That ‘Self’ allows the play of Consciousness to abraid Itself into a ’seeming’ lesser vehicle.

How perfect! Where is the imperfection?! All must be perfection, else the ‘All’ Itself would be corrupted. The ‘only this’ of ‘Oneness’ would then have an ‘other’. If ‘boundlessness’ Is ‘boundlessness’, then having an ‘other’ would limit the limitless-ness of ‘boundlessness’.

Adding complexity to something so simple is an exercise in futility and misunderstanding. Allowing the perfection of imperfection is allowing perfection to Be perfection. The ‘imperfection’ is a seeming ‘imperfection’. It cannot rival the permanence of spaceless space. The ‘space’ (metaphorically) is never reduced. The temporal does not compete with Absoluteness in It’s absoluteness.

The temporal is a ‘seeming’ temporal. Absoluteness never loses It’s spunk. ‘It’ never is diminished. The ’seemingness’ Is the ‘perfection’.

When we make a full stop for imperfection (at the seeming expense of perfection) we over-entertain the conditional. That ’stop’ then appears to preclude the un-conditional with the ‘emptiness’ then seemingly lost to a lesser vehicle filled with conditional stuff.

Nothing is ever really lost as the bottom line of everything Is Nothing. Nothing never stops Being Nothing. Perfection Loves and Is Perfection.

Accepting all ‘that’ is accepting the brilliance of dimensionless emptiness playing as personal manifestation while being the impersonal un-manifest. The differences only ‘appear’ as differences when viewed out of a very narrow prism. 

There is no ‘place’ or ’state’ to get to by dumping the conditional. The conditional Is the perfection of imperfection. Saying ‘yes’ to the imperfection with full acceptance, Is Knowing We Are the expressing of Perfection Itself. Be ‘that’ effortlessly.



The highest attainment we can achieve is to lose everything.

Now doesn’t that sound exciting, especially when we have always run our life trying to achieve and get somewhere with all that proverbial ‘something’ we thought we needed and did not have. We thought, once we achieve this and/or get this, then our angst will completely disappear.

Subsequent disappointment inevitably shows up. We try again. And again, the long-term struggle follows with the same short-term gain, but our dream of fulfillment vaporized, and our neediness swinging right back to this familiar and delusional self.

So how can losing everything give us an abatement on our struggle with finding satiation with achievement? Why doesn’t achievement work to give us lasting peace and contentment? Can we be honest about the stories we keep telling ourselves? 

Are our stories and beliefs about ourselves the problem? Have we looked there? Have we seen others on the same path with the same repeatable results of inadequacy? The inadequacy is in finding a lasting peace that is not event and/or content-based. There is not enough content and/or events to gives us that imperturbable peace.

The real question is, who has the story and belief about how things should work? Have the stories and beliefs we hold as essential, really essential? What would happen to us if we dropped all stories and beliefs? Would our neediness even exist anymore if we stopped fueling temporary conditions as the basis of an enduring stability?

When there is nobody ‘looking’, then there is only ‘The Looking’. ’The Looking’ does not ‘look’ from a view or somebody. It Is just ‘Looking’ with nobody to ‘look’ through.

In order to ‘have’ a story/belief, there must be a ‘somebody’ to own that. That ‘somebody’ does not have to be real or have an independent existence. Stories and belief create a fictional character not unlike a movie persona. Subsequently we suspend our belief and give the character a so-called real life with goals and achievements. It is an illusion. 

An illusion cannot find peace no matter how ‘good’ the illusion is.

There Is just ’The Looking’, empty of any concepts, goals, and/or beliefs. And the illusion of character in a movie cannot find ’The Looking’. The only hard reality Is ’The Looking’. End of story, end of movie and the end of all beliefs.

We are not bound by our thoughts and/or concepts unless we ‘think’ we are. ‘The Looking’ Is prior to any thought or concept. ‘The Looking’ cannot be found by an illusion in a movie. ‘The Looking’ is the backdrop to all movies and/or characters. 

There is no ‘finding’ here. There is no search. There Is only ‘The Looking’. Look no further than the resonance of existence without any form, history, projection, and/or story. This emptiness Is the Presence of Nothingness, which ultimately Is everything. 

Formlessness Is everything while landing in no ‘place’ to be found. It’s place is every place and no place. It’s view Is every view and no view.

To land a ‘place’ or a ‘view’ is to create a false foundation of a ‘me’ and the subsequent binding of the ‘me’ to thoughts, ideas, and stories.

Lose everything. Be nobody doing nothing. Life and ’The Looking’ Is then living You and the illusion ends.  


There is nowhere to go to get anything. Where would we go? There is no location for Presence. All locations are in Presence. Only concepts separate Presence into us/them and/or here/there. Presence cannot step outside of Itself.

Our Presence is Presence unless we profess a belief outside of our direct experience. We can unconsciously nullify experiential knowing of Self through tireless references to concepts. Concepts that result in only seemingly distancing Us from Us.

Truth cannot be conceptual. That would be a downgrade. Reaching for a concept to understand our Oneness is not the ticket that we ‘think’ it is. The default of always going to a concept to ‘get’ the understanding, is a clear redirection away from Being. Being Presence has no such requirement. Conceptual triggering is the best path ‘away’ from Being Present. It is reflexively going into mind and away from what Is Here. There is only Here with no ‘there’ to get to with any concept.

To create a false space outside of ‘Here’, is to suggest to ‘Oneness’ to step outside of Itself. There is no ‘twoness’ in Oneness. All locations and no location, are where we find Ourselves Present. Simply, there is no place to get to, to Be Present. Oneness cannot have anything missing to require going some place else for some fictional fulfillment.

It is the travel ‘away’ from Here that appears to prompt the false movement to search for some ‘thing’ or concept, that will give us that permanent satisfaction we appear to be looking for in our desperate lives. This would be a search for ‘stuff’ that does not have an independent existence from Being Presence Itself. There is no location to go to, to find false gold. The ‘finding’ is ‘no finding’ any ‘thing’, especially a very temporary creation.

It is the ‘idea’ of a separate incomplete self that has a built in neediness, that prompts pointless pursuits. The illusion that is searching, is the illusion. Illusions can never find a substance to get out of illusion. Illusions can graduate to a better illusion. Still Illusions are clearly dead ends.

Losing identity with an illusion is the problem and solution.

What Is left is substantive nothingness free from any entanglements. The emptiness may appear scary as far as voids are concerned. However, this is a meeting with pure freedom with nothing to get in the way. There is no identity Here to separate into. Fear would be an identity trying to stay separate. Oneness only Sees Oneness. Any false constructs have no business Here.

Leaving concepts is leaving a perseverating mind. What Is Here Is already Here. This Priorness Is Us concept-free. The emptiness is the substance of Presence. Mind clings and tries to know stuff. The ‘Knowing’ is prior to mind, thoughts and concepts. Letting go of this weighty ‘stuff’ on mind, frees up empty space for Being. Being a zero Is Being free from holding, trying, and doing a doer. Life Is living Us effortlessly in either case. We assume our true identity as Life Itself. Presence incarnate.

We Are this openness that has no stuff to hold, no concepts to separate into, and no quantifiable location to reside at. All appearances, nevertheless, are welcome Here. As these too have ultimate Presence as their ancestor. The Priorness, the Location-less, the Presence Is Us effortlessly changing forms with formless-ness as unchanging.

Person and personality change constantly throughout our lives. Waking dream, sleeping dream, or formless deep sleep -all this shifting indicates our true nature. The unchanging aliveness of Presence streams through the various forms untouched and whole. ‘That’ nothing is everything. Be free and always spacious in all states. It Is our true nature Now in this moment and the location-less Here to receive everything and hold nothing.


You or ‘Us’, Is the Oneness. Everything starts from Here. The permanence of formless Being, being Here and everywhere Now, has always been the receiving Itself. This Oneness has no other experiencing other than receipt of It’s own Oneness.

The aspect of ‘receiving’ everything always and completely, is the permanent characteristic of being everything while ‘holding on’ to nothing. The ‘Receiving’ is a resting in receiving absolutely everything. There is no vetting of receiving only ‘that’ which passes a certain quality or standard. There is no vetting, as all phenomena is equal, as all phenomena rises and falls from the Oneness. To reject any phenomena is to reject the Oneness. All phenomena is ultimately the Oneness, as there Is only the Oneness. The resting, is the effortlessness of simply Being our True Nature.

The Oneness Is the same Oneness for everyone. When we acknowledge the Oneness, It Is the same Oneness that is acknowledged by all life everywhere, period. No one is experiencing anything different. That means no ‘other’. Again, everyone everywhere is only experiencing the exact same Oneness. The resonation of this truth is a felt sense in the spiritual heart. 

The Receiving of Oneness by Oneness never stops. How could It? It Is the imperturbable eternal Self Being Self. The Receiving Is You. This ‘Us’ has pure emptiness. This spaciousness welcomes everything yet holds nothing. Nothing, to include everything, ever sticks or stays here. Nothingness remains nothingness despite the everything that passes through this spaciousness. When that is seen, then emptiness is seen as the True Self.

There is no ‘doing’ Here. You don’t ‘start’ receiving. ‘We’ have always been Receiving. But this time you know it is You. And You do nothing, especially ‘doing’ Receiving. When You are truly Receiving, nothing is being ‘done’. You are ‘doing’ infinitely less than when you were ‘trying’ to do it. All ‘doing’ by anyone to include the idea of ‘someone’, stops.

It Is the nature of Receiving to ‘effortlessly’ receive. Ordinary experience by anyone and/or everyone, validates this effortlessness. After ‘seeing’ something you didn’t want to see, can you ‘un-see’ it? When you heard some words uttered to you that you didn’t find kind, can you un-hear it? When you felt some terrific pain in your body that passed through, can you un-feel it? Thoughts -when you think some idea that is hurtful to others can you un-think it?

There is nothing vetting anything here. It is all seen and it all passes through with no holding by The Receiving. Any holding is only done by the idea called ‘me’. The Receiving Is always Present. The ‘me’ is seemingly always attempting to steal presence. The Receiving even receives the illusion of the ‘me’ because ultimately even the idea of the ‘me’ is just another form of phenomena rising/falling.

The Receiving does not stop receiving despite the content because it is not about the content. To give the content importance is to upend Truth having no second. There is only The Receiving. 

‘I Am’ The Receiving not the receiver. There is no receiver. There is no ‘person’ doing receiving. Emptiness Is receiving while always remaining emptiness.

Being willing to receive anything and every thing as It Is Oneness Being Oneness. Nothing touches the Oneness while Oneness touches every thing. Emptiness Is the True Self only receiving Itself, ‘The Receiving’. ‘The Receiving’ is the receipt we are left with in life in order to receive life fully. Saying yes, yes, and yes again to every thing, is the ticket to ride.     



Silence is not nothing. Silence allows everything to arrive and depart to include irritating noises and/or pleasant sounds. Thoughts, beliefs, and perceptions are often found to disturb the Silence. A mind filled with perseveration and ceaseless activity seemingly occludes any enduring sense of quietness. When Silence seems to finally gain some ground, a sense of relief and relaxation accompanies the moment that was previously lost to senseless dross.

There is an effortless ease in allowing the space where it all happens, to be content (noise) free. To be content free and to thrive on the emptiness that is found Here, leaves Us with a resonance that is imperturbable. There is a non-cognitive understanding that this resonance never sees change despite the carnage of noise. 

The resonance can be said to be pure allowing without any structural interference. Silence can possibly be said to be a form of emptiness that cannot be filled or touched no matter how much sound or noise may appear. The resonance of Silence is prior to all appearances of any content. In the phenomenal world, content will arrive and abate as is the nature of anything temporary. Silence is a permanent platform secured by seminal existence Itself.

Nothingness is un-breachable. Contrarily, the mind, given unrestricted access to analyze, evaluate, and make specious conclusions about itself, is seemingly spending Silence like there is no tomorrow. The only spatial silence, again seemingly, is between thoughts, ideas, and perceptions.

Because silence is not a ‘thing’ the mind overlooks It because it cannot find It.

Silence Is who we Are with no thing added. The resonance of Silence Is a felt-sense that references our true starting point i.e. Emptiness. This Is Existence that holds nothing but Existence. To hold any ‘thing’ else Is to not Be Existence. Silence Is alive Here.

A conversation, an ongoing conversation with the mind, is an actualization of a preference for mind activity over Silence. Having a preference is having a view. And ‘that’ finalizes separation from Silence.

Separation is a concept of the mind. Living the ‘not knowing’ allows true Knowing to arise past conceptual limitations indigenous to mind preservation.

The un-doing of the mind is allowing Silence to resonate loudly It’s no other-ness. Silence embraces all thoughts, ideas, beliefs, and/or perceptions. It Is the garland that graces any acts by not acting, by saying nothing, and not investing in separation.

There is nothing to surrender Here as it all comes from the Silence of Being. See ‘that’. Feel the actual resonance and vibratory signature of deep Silence. It Is our most essential nature sourcing existence Itself. It Is everything resonating with soundless nothingness. Know ‘this’ resonance that Is silent Presence needing no knower but Itself.    


Emptiness Is Presence with no-one Present. Emptiness could not be Emptiness ‘carrying content’. Emptiness Is formless and unbounded by any structures or objects. It Is so empty that to even define it would be too much structure for the structure-less.

At the same time there is an aliveness, awareness, and knowing that is undisturbable. Presence does not assert Itself. There is no need to assert what is always Present. Even the seeming content in Presence, Is ultimately Presence masquerading as appearance, with the ‘permanence’ of coming and going. In other words, the ‘temporary’ is the play of Consciousness Being Consciousness.

Consciousness of Consciousness Is Presence. The ‘Knowing’ is always Present even in appearances. Knowing the ‘Knowing’ consciously, Is the ‘Knowing’. Presence cannot be asserted by appearances of temporary forms, as these forms do not have an independent existence. Nor can they, as that would assert ‘another’ existence when there Is only the Oneness that Is Present as ‘existence’.

‘I Am’ that which is Present/Aware/Conscious. ‘I Am’ this ‘Emptiness’ before expression of form, during the manifesting of form and after the appearance of form. ‘I Am’ the changeless ‘Emptiness’ that Is always Present as Presence. Nothing can hide ‘Me’ as I Am everything everywhere.

‘I Am’ alive with the Knowing which Is my Presence. This cannot be understood by the mind, that is, the current thought and perception. ‘I’ exist before and after any thought and/or perception. Knowing ‘this’ ‘I’ am free to Be any manifestation and not be bound by it. This is aliveness and freedom of being life Itself. Could life be any ‘other’?

Meeting life as it is, is meeting ‘it’ with emptiness. Emptiness does not get less empty or less full. It just ‘Is’. This ‘Isness’ Is unbounded freedom to Be anything, anyone, and absolutely everything.

Given all ‘that’, what would throwing a ‘someone’ in all ‘that’ do to all ‘that’?

It does not make sense to upend the whole of Oneness by throwing in an ‘outlier’ concept like ‘someone’. Adding a ‘someone’ is a fictional effort supported wholly by systemic belief. It is on par with other conspiracy theories that always fall short of the mark of reality when confronted with obvious operational details. But as with your typical conspiracy theory, there is an appearance of a seemingly rational rejoiner, that is thrown in, to combat the most glaring reveal of inconsistency.

The inherent instability of installing ‘someone’, requires a constant adjustment of beliefs to sustain the fiction. There is no Presence here in this concept. Beliefs and ideas cannot sustain existence. Existence sustains Itself, as ‘that’ Is It’s nature.

Changing appearances in life changes nothing. What cannot change is the knowing of the Knowing. And this is not for the mind to know or understand. Presence is before, during, and after appearances. Presence is not situational nor a practice. It Is our true permanent unrelenting nature of Self.

Loading a ‘someone’ into Presence is actually not possible. There Is only Presence.

Presence Is. Start there. End there. It Is Everything.



There is an overt tendency for us to to see the world through the lens of good and bad. This tendency, has inherent in it, an immediacy to make the jump from “What Is”, to evaluation and then to judgment/conclusion. All that can happen in a heartbeat.

The problem here is not only limited testing but also the manifesting of a conclusion based on a false need to make a decision ‘now’, in order to have some seeming security. Security in protecting our self from some ‘perceived’ potential harm. And security from our own criticism of not having an informed decision. We appear to need to ‘know’ what we ‘think’.

This ’need’ to ‘know’ what we ‘think’ is an unnecessary and very limited overlay. ‘It’ overlays and pretty much obscures our emptiness of Self. The emptiness has no dog in the race. The ‘Knowing’ ‘Here’ is bias free.

What we ‘think’, is a preoccupation with the idea of a self. The narrowness of this view is appallingly small. And the ‘thinking’ part is usually not tempered by the larger Reality. It is a formula for the production of fear and separation.

The ‘stamp of approval’ commonly given by a separate self, is a device that automatically locates self in self. It is usually an unseen pattern of behavior that keeps us fledging on the periphery of Self. Constantly making unnecessary judgments about everything and everyone, keeps us imprisoned in a little prison we have built for ourselves.

The key is, the ‘one’ that is stamping approval/disapproval, is non-existent. Every time ‘the stamp’ comes out, the little me appears wielding its imaginary powers. 

Identity with this ’stamper’, as a seemingly important self, allows the charade to continue unabated. Most of the 7 billion souls participating in this activity results in a faux normalcy we unconsciously support and create. All this ‘approving’ effort gives a false legitimacy for more contracted behavior.

We defend ourselves with our knowledge. We think we ‘know’ the Truth. Actually Being the Truth is the most truthful. Everything Is happening in the Truth. Nothing is happening to ‘you’ but in ‘You’. Truth Is You with no other. And there is no-one there to approve anything.

When emptiness is paramount as identity, we become nothingness. And then there is absolutely nothing to approve. Becoming what we already Are is always the answer to any seeming question. There is nothing else but ‘this’. And so, there is no approval needed Here.

Being Is content free. Being Being is always enough. Loving Being is Love.         



Perceiving cannot stop perceiving. Have we ever witnessed Perceiving not perceiving? Do we get the permanence of all that?

Try stopping the Perceiving. Is that even possible?! Our direct experience tells us unabashedly that stopping ‘The Knowing’ is tantamount to stopping everything. This clarity is compelling. It Is a real Truth. 

If all that is as real as real can get, then why do we perseverate on ideas on whom we think we are, rather than on the imperturbable Truth of Perceiving?

What can be perceived cannot be perceiving. The common problem that often plagues us is the perseveration on the perceived rather than staying with  the Perceiving. If we were dropping back to Perceiving at the same rate that we are usually moving towards the perceived, we would vastly change our perspective, let alone the quality of our energy.

A more complete immersion in the Perceiving would alter profoundly our connection with “What Is”. There would be no argument with any phenomena arising; as separateness from phenomena would no longer be seen as separateness. The unity in the diversity is the play of perceiving Perceiving. Perceiving is ‘receiving’ Perceiving, as everything is boiled down to knowing the Knowing. There is nothing outside of knowing the Knowing, or what is referred to here as the Perceiving.

So when we keep dropping back constantly to the Perceiving we begin to understand that we Are the Perceiving. The Perceiving, being permanent, gives Us immediate comfort because of this permanence. The stability of it all secures our devotion to this pathless path. ‘It’ has always been Here and certainly is Here Now.

There is nothing that can be added to the Perceiving as It Is whole. Attempting to add something to It results in separation from It. It needs nothing as It Is everything.

Additionally, we cannot put ‘It’ in a box and say it is this or that. That would be an attempt at objectification. ‘It’ Is not an object. ‘It’ Is aliveness that gives substance to everything, as ‘It’ ultimately Is everything. 

Our concerns cannot be added to ‘It’. The Perceiving is not a separate creation. It Is creation Itself creating Itself. The Perceiving Is what is happening in this happening. No after story is necessary to proclaim It.   

Perceiving Is just perceiving Itself effortlessly. Staying with the Perceiving is allowing life to happen as It happens. The Perceiving  does not have dog in the race. It Is just the Perceiving.

Know thy Self. ‘It’ Is everything always Now. See the ’Seeing’. 



The reflection called ‘me’ is but a reflection. The Fullness can be found everywhere and Its reflection reflects Fullness. The substance of pure existence is prior to all that is reflected. The ‘me’ is representative of physical reality. The ‘me’ runs on imperfection. It is a creation or reflection. 

What Is behind the creation (or reflection) is perfection. The substantive-ness of perfection is causeless. Causeless-ness Is the field of Nothingness. There is nothing to Nothingness. No ‘thing’ is there to ‘cause’ Nothingness. It Is prior to every ‘thing’.

The ‘me’ is not prior and can cause zero to happen in the happening called life. It is a ‘thing’ that is being used as a vehicle for Consciousness. The ‘me’ cannot contain Consciousness or have anything. 

The ‘me’ masquerades as someone needing something. The ‘me’ does not have Awareness. Awareness belongs to no one. Awareness has everything to include the idea of the ‘me’.

It has never been about the ‘me’ except when viewing life from the ‘me’. That narrow view is a severe contraction wholly based on a cultish belief of separateness. The basis of the ‘me’ then becomes this separateness. This ‘idea’ further establishes a seeming control that is out of control. The ‘me’ in Reality, has never been in control.

The ‘me’ can ‘try’ to supplant Nothingness. This would be like an out of control vehicle trying to control the expressway of life Itself. The narrowness of this view is ridiculous. It is imperfection trying to control perfection.

It will never be about the ‘me’. My ’67 Cougar will never have Awakeness/Awareness. There is nothing to get out of phenomena that does not have an independent existence. 

The ‘me’ is an idea. Whom We Are is not an idea. Whom We Are does not need a sense of ‘other’. There Is no ‘other’ unless we create a false ‘other’.

The adding of anything to It only seemingly subtracts from It. Even having a ‘view’ is too much.

There is no-one Here except the eternal-ness  being Being. Be awake to ’That’ in every moment.



There is only one ‘knowing’. ‘Our’ knowing is not distinguishable from ’The Knowing’ unless we declare it so. But that would be creating an illusion as there can only be one ‘Knowing’.

Knowing the ‘Knowing’ is knowing Ourselves. Ourselves being Oneness ‘Knowing’, as there can be no ‘other’, especially if Oneness is to abide as Oneness.

We often seemingly separate when we get lost in perceptions, thoughts, and feelings. Just the direction of ‘how we see’ where we are going, is problematic in that ‘that’ direction is away from Oneness. To get lost in the sauce of perception, thoughts, and feelings is to choose objects in defining whom we are, rather than ’see’ what is always before temporary fleeting objects is true unchanging permanence.

Going toward objects and believing they are ‘real’ reduces connection to the eternal frequency of Being, i.e. ’The Knowing’. Connection to fleeting objects is tenuous at best with no hope of stability and reliability in that pursuit. The frequency of temporary objects is inherently also temporary and unstable, telling us that there is a dead end here.  

When every ‘thing’ is made of consciousness there is no real ‘other place’ for even ‘things’ to go to. It Is consciousness ultimately Being consciousness. Everything arises in consciousness. This expression is affirmed when ‘We’ realize everything experienced arises in ‘Us’ (consciousness) versus getting lost in the pretense of stuff.

Getting lost in thoughts and other objects as ‘stuff that matters’, is an attempt to create a false reality that has illusion as its core. This is not sustainable due to illusions lacking permanence. Illusions cannot create a new substance to support illusions. Behind every seeming illusion, consciousness hides and also abides.

Nothing has ever left consciousness as It Is only consciousness. It is not possible to take a ‘seeming object’ out of consciousness. Everything arises in the same place. Ultimately all that is possible to experience is consciousness. The knowing of ‘The Knowing’ in all experience, Is Us.

The only thing real about experience is the ‘knowing’ of it.

Our ‘knowing’ Is ’The Knowing’. Relaxing into the knowing of everything being the ‘Knowing’ first, with thoughts, feelings and other objects contained within Us and not outside Us, carries Us into Us.
