LOVE I AM COMPLETELY YOURS
Love I Am. You know that I Love You. In other words, I Am You unconditionally.
When ‘It’ Is all Causeless-ness, what is the effect?
The seeming ‘cause’ has a seeming ‘effect’. Causeless-ness just Is. What more can it Be? The ‘dreaming’ is not the ‘dreamt’. The ‘character’ is an extremely limited player in the dream which itself is extremely limited. It Is the ‘Dreaming’ that is most real and that is the play of life in both the awake state and dreamt state of the play. ‘What’ is dreamt is insignificant relative to the ‘Dreaming’. The ‘dreamt’ has absolutely no effect on the causeless ‘Dreaming’.
Love Is the source of everything and nothing. Love is insistent on loving everything because it is everything. Love Loves Love. This ‘Love’ is causeless and un-conditioned. Because this Love Is everything, then everything Is always unmistakably Love.
This ‘Love’ Is completely, top to bottom, Us, relative and absolute. There is nothing outside of ‘this’ Love. Love infuses Itself into everything, micro to macro, with absolutely nothing left out. ‘It’ Is completely Us as ‘It’ Is completely Us. There Is no ‘other’.
There is ‘nothing’ about being ‘something’. ‘That’ is an ignoring of ‘What Is’ in ‘Seeing’, when we get stuck in some seemingly vogue status of being ‘someone’. Being someone is akin to getting lost in the character in a Netflix movie.
Looking for ‘Love’ while Being ‘Love’ is ignoring the most obvious. ‘This’ view is a view from conditioned love. Starting from what we aren’t and searching from this faux status can never result in actualization of Self. Self does not need to be actuated, as It Is causeless and endless Love and integration without a gap (to especially include Now).
The ‘You’ needs no definition as It Is all. Characteristics and definition, likes and dislikes, desires and needs, all are limitations of Self. Everything that defines us limits us as ‘Everything’ is then limited to some ‘things’. This separation is not Love. There is no ‘this’ or ‘that’ in Love. Love just Is.
“Thinking imagines that I, Awareness, share the limits and the destiny of the mind and body. With this belief a limited, temporary self comes into apparent existence on whose behalf most subsequent thoughts, feelings, activities and relationships are undertaken.” -Rupert Spira
Meet it all with Love. Stay effortlessly in the heart where the sublime unconditioned Self is always found. See from the everything first and then acknowledge, if needed, the character in this flic called life. Our feet are always imbedded in the deepest part of Ourselves eternally. Staying in this effortlessness is home sweet home. Welcome home Love. I Am completely Yours.

IDENTIFYING AS NOTHING
Nothing has no predilection and really no location. It has nowhere to go and yet is everywhere to be found. The utility of nothing is that it Is something that is empty as far as concepts can take it. There is no materialism left in nothing. It is less than ash.
Nothing rules over nothing and that is an advantage for everyone. Nothing never interferes. Being nothing allows everything to prosper. Nothing doesn’t even step back because nothing is never in the way. It is the ultimate convenience. And yet, it never gets any real respect or recognition despite its success rate of 100%.
If ‘nothing’ defines you, then the ‘you’ is essentially ‘nothing’, yes? If the ‘tornado of me’ comes in and demands attention and obeisance, then what happens? We lose nothing-ness. When we were completely identified with ‘nothing’ then nothing mattered. Now that we think we are ‘something’ then everything seems to matter.
The question that arises is, what changed and how significant was the change? What seemingly happened was that we gave up ‘nothing’ for ‘something’. And the significance of ‘that’ was everything. When we deal with nothing-ness we deal with everything.
There is freedom with ’nothing’ while there is imprisonment with the act of trading down to ‘something-ness. Where does our identity lie? In ‘something-ness’ or in ‘nothing-ness’?
In the state of ‘something-ness’, we erroneously maintain this ‘something-ness’ while continuing to possibly ’be’ this goal of ‘nothing-ness’. In actuality, Being ‘nothing’ means we See that we are everything without the interpretation and identification with any one body, thing, or character. ’Nothing’ by It’s nature, is the virtual space for everything, so there is nothing to have or be, as ‘having’ and be-ing is redundant. The presumed ‘you’ is subsumed in the ‘everything-ness’ of ‘nothing-ness’. ‘Nothing-ness’ Is permanently the space for every thing, all the time (changelessly) anyway.
Starting with ‘nothing-ness’ rather than starting with being something, is radically and powerfully optimal or dismal, contingent on this preliminary step. Said another way, drawing a line for an imaginary self begins the departure from wholeness. The line of self divides the ‘nothing-ness’ into this or that. This or that are ‘things’. ‘Things’ cannot ever be ‘nothing-ness’. However, ‘nothing-ness’ always make room for every ‘thing’.
’Nothing-ness’ cannot be bound. ‘Something-ness’ is binding to things. ’Nothing-ness has no limitations and cannot be defined. Personhood or ‘something-ness’ is bound by some type of definition. It has boundaries and limits. This separation is separation because of boundaries and limits. ’Nothing-ness’ is free to be everything everywhere unbounded.
Lastly, ask two questions? What is real? What is unreal? Using the measures of permanence and ubiquity, we tease out the answers. What is temporary, fleeting, and limited is ‘something-ness’? And what is permanent, stable, and unlimited is ‘nothing-ness’?
“The separate inside self always has a point of view. In fact, the separate inside self is a point of view. I, Awareness, however, have no point of view. I am the viewing.” -Rupert Spira
Be whom you Are now. Limitation is indigenous to things. Meet yourself in the ’Nothing-ness’ you already are now. Start with ‘nothing’ and Be ‘everything’.
I Awareness am Love in Love with Love. Daddy’O
LOVE COMES FIRST
Everything sources from the endless fountain called ‘Love’.
Experientially we ‘know’ that ‘Love’ is our starting point. When we feel ‘Love’ we ‘see’ that it is complete and fulfilling, before going to any ‘thing’ or idea. The ‘thing’ or idea, is always second. Love is prior to any ‘thing’.
If we love motorcycles or if we love knitting, it Is the Love that is abiding before, during, and after any ‘thing’. Is it not?
Love is timeless and ergo forever Present. It has never started or stopped. It Is available in all the linear time we seemingly have. The Love incarnate Is Us.
The expression of Love in the ephemeral does not make Love ephemeral. The ephemeral will arise and fall while Love Is witnessing it all, all the time.
The ‘Love’ is not conditional even when we make it conditional. Conditional love is not ‘Love’. ‘Love’ remains untouched despite the manipulation. The manipulation is ephemeral and therefore cannot Be ‘Love’. Adding manipulation to Love is separating ‘Love’ into conditions. ‘Conditions’ cannot rule Love.
Again, ‘Love’ is before all conditions and complete to the degree that It cannot be improved. The ‘Fullness of Love’ is never not full. It cannot be diminished by any temporal condition.
Given that we often take ‘Love’ with Us to journeys of self-gratification, the question must be asked, ”When does Love stop Being Love”?
The distinguishing, is in who is carrying the water, so to speak. When we add desire and the tornado of me to ‘Love’, then only ‘Love’ remains. ‘Love’ remains as ‘Love’. The downgrade remains as the downgrade. The separate self serving its illusory existence, cannot force ‘Love’ into this servitude. ‘Love’ Is only ‘Love’, yet again. ‘Love’ Is nothing carrying everything, even water, with no conditions. The downgrade is what is conditional/temporal.
“Love is the natural condition of all experience before thought has divided it into a multiplicity and diversity of objects, selves and others.” -Rupert Spira
Know ‘Love’ as the seamless-ness of everything. It Is the awakened stability that allows the conditional and transitory to temporarily abide without explicit interference. But not only not interfering, but also ’Love’ Is delightfully Present to ingratiate any open contact, to thrive with beautiful aliveness.
‘Love’ is first. And last.
You Are Love. Love Loves Love, Daddy’O
Appearances arise and fall as temporary objects. There is no permanance to objects to include concepts. More importantly, is the permanence of perception, that sees the arising and falling of the temporary. Perceiving just perceives with no objects or concepts to facilitate. Perceiving never stops. Perceiving has no location where it happens. Perceiving just perceives. There is nothing added.
Freedom is facilitated by perceiving the perceiving, by seeing the seeing, by noticing the noticing. There are no sticking points unless we insert objects into the freeness of perceiving.
Perceiving is sufficient to Itself. When we stop and perseverate for objects, we limit perceiving. Freedom is then limited. Allowing objects to come and go is the nature of freedom.
Be free. Be in no location and see the Seeing. It Is You, everywhere.
Love the Love, Daddy’O
Do we see a driver? There is no driver. The driver is just a thought. Perceiving only perceives perceiving.
To put a driver in the vehicle would take an illusion to enact the noun called ‘driver’. Even then, it, the driver, is only there in perception not reality. And what perception experientially concludes, is the perception or perceiving of the driver, which ultimately is the ‘knowing’.
However, there is no distance created, even when seemingly created, between the driver and the driving. Making a ‘noun’ out of the driver is the false separation of duality. Only when perception and experiencing are replaced by conceptual constraints, does the driver appear more real than validated perception. The driver then appears conceptually not experientially.
The concepts do not have the backing of Reality to assist in a proper conclusion. Our experiencing, without the need for conceptually framing something into a ‘thing’, is what we know deeply as truth. Truth cannot be funneled into a limited conceptual base. That base is too small for the enormity of formless-ness masquerading as form and back to formless-ness.
The prior-ness of existence needs existence Itself to discern Itself. Thoughts or concepts do not make the cut as they are severely truncated temporary limited objects. All there is is the knowing of thoughts, perceptions, and experience. Without the ‘knowing’, there would be no perception of things masquerading as things. The ‘knowing’ is most essential.
The ‘knowing’ precludes the ‘known’. The ‘known’ is artificial, a noun per se. There is no need for the ‘known’ as It all is just ‘knowing’. There is only the ‘knowing’ of seeing, tasting, touching, hearing and smelling. The experience is one with the ‘knowing’ as the seeming ‘two’ of ‘knowing’ and ‘experience’ are the same ‘knowing’.
Hence, there is no driver. Only the perceiving of perceiving. What perceives the so-called driver, is the perceiving and knowing of formless-ness in form. The formless-ness never departs. The forms manifest and un-manifest as do all phenomena. The driver is truly formless-ness as seen by the Seeing.
Seeing things clearly requires no belief system. Not seeing things clearly involves employing a belief system i.e. believing in separation when experientially all that is found is ‘knowing’ knowing ‘knowing’. Belief in separation results in a massive illusion engendering suffering and alienation.
Dependence on thought alone is wholly insufficient to ‘divine’ Reality. Knowing thoughts is knowing limitation and form. Knowing Self is knowing the unlimited and formless-ness.
“It is only an activity of thinking and feeling that makes it seem that we are something other than open, empty, unlimited Awareness but even this activity takes place in and is made out of Awareness alone.” -Rupert Spira
It Is all connected but the unity can be most clearly seen through the ‘knowing’ of every thing and nothing. Everything is everything first and last with no ‘not knowing’. And ‘nothing’ is a part of that ‘everything’.
Love Loves Love always, Daddy’O
‘Nobody’ is not a threat to ‘somebody’. ‘Somebody’ already has made a statement about being some ‘thing’ or idea. ‘Nobody’ has no investment in things, as ‘things’ are worthless from this viewpoint. The freedom of ‘nobody’ is unsurpassed.
‘Nobody’ doesn’t care while contemporaneously caring greatly. Being ‘nobody’ allows infinite expression and fullness to appear. There is no one to prefer this or that. ‘All’, is all in, all the time.
Having no preference, allows full freedom from personal conflicts and self-interest to not molest Love Itself. ‘Nobody’ Loves everyone equally as ‘nobody’, as Love is never divided up or parcelled out. ‘Nobody’ can ‘Be’ Love effortlessly as there are no distinctions. There is ‘no one’ to ‘nobody’.
‘Nobody’ understands ‘Existence’ . ‘Existence’ too, has no preferences. ‘Nobody’ and ‘Existence’ come first before any masquerading of identity and separation into phenomena. There are no limitations in ‘nobody’ and/or ‘Existence’, as they are all things before things were things.
We are always ‘nobody’ before/after a presumed ‘somebody’. ‘Existence’ too has ‘that’ prior-ness that has us all, first and last. ’Nobody’ and ‘Existence’ are essentially ’Oneness’ culled into the diversity of everyone and everything. Despite everyone and everything appearing, the ‘Oneness’ of ‘nobody’ and ‘Existence’ is unchanged, maintaining the singularity of ‘Oneness’, despite seeming duality.
’Nobody’ has a clear view of True Nature as there is no ‘somebody’ to pretend otherwise. ’Somebody’ often morphs into a limited character with complimentary limitations. There is no ‘somebody’ in ‘nobody’, which disallows believing in a separate existing True Self. Not being in separation automatically disallows believing in separation and separate identity.
True Self aka ‘nobody’ is never believing. It just Is.
Nobody’ is free. ‘Nobody’ needs to be liberated. ‘Somebody’ needs to be freed. ’Somebody’ needs to be liberated. Ergo, there is no ‘somebody’.
’Nobody’ is not even a seeming noun in this sentence. A noun would defy being ‘nobody’. ’Nobody’ is less than a noun. ’Nobody’ is more like ‘no-body-ing’, a verb.
Being, Knowing, experiencing with no stops finds ‘nobody’ Present. Just Presence abiding in Presence.
“Devotion is love directed towards an ‘other’. Divested of the ‘other’ our devotion finds nothing to turn towards, and, as a result, vacillates for a moment, flows back to its source, and stands revealed as pure love.We are the light of pure Knowing that runs through all experience. Stay with that, as that. Be and know only that.” -Rupert Spira
Being ‘nobody’ allows a maximum of ‘Openness’ to fill the emptiness available. Being ‘somebody’ limits the ‘unlimited’. ’Nobody’ cannot be imprisoned as It Is everywhere being found nowhere.
Love the Love, Daddy’O
THERE’S ‘NO ONE’ TO NOT HAVE AN EXPERIENCE
The “knowing” is not knowledge-based. The “knowing” of an experience is not the experience. The “knowing” never stops “knowing”. It Is. It Is behind everything.
There is no rest for “knowing” as It Is eternally ‘nothing’ and that ‘nothing’ needs nothing. Rest is not needed when in the “knowing”, in contrast to ‘outside’ the “knowing”, in the phenomenal, where rest may be needed.
What is outside the “knowing”? Seemingly, there is the appearance of illusion, appearing to be outside of the “knowing”. The constant iteration of a false self made up of a streaming affirmation of thoughts, appears to be separate. This is an unnatural field having ‘dis-unity’ as a principle for integration. There is never any real calm in this construct as it is blatantly artificial and unreal. The sheer quantity of affirmations of the conceptual self make the demand for a faux reality (for the conceptual self).
This is the ‘no one’. The ‘no one’ is handicapped in that it is missing significant pieces of Reality in its construction. The ‘Fullness’ cannot be accessed due to the obscuration constantly present 24/7 in this compromised state. The ‘no one’ is desperately seeking that mysterious ‘something’, which is a ‘thing’. ‘No one’ can ever find such a ‘thing’ because it does not exist as a ‘thing’. The seeking, however, continues, often until death, without much substantive success.
The ‘no one’ does not really exist. It exists only as a character. The character of ‘no one’ believes itself to be real. That is what characters generally do. They ‘do’ this without the essential element of ‘being’ or ‘feeling of existence’. The ‘feeling of existence’ is there, but is not accessed as an essential starting point for every Moment, by this character, generally called ‘no one’.
“Thoughts’ rule. Usually thoughts about ‘no one’ rule at the rate of about 70,000 per day. With that much energy devoted to ‘no one’, the ‘no one’ feels real. Conditioning and adaptation accommodate the fraud. Fraudulence can never get relief as it is based on a tornado of unreality.
Thoughts are useful when they are used as tools. When thoughts dominate our identity, then thoughts have become the monster we created -the ‘no one’ being some thing.
For the ‘no one’ to ‘have’ or not to ‘have’ an experience, what is essentially presented is a further affirmation of unreality. How could ‘no one’ have or not have any thing?! Can an illusion have an illusion?
We are dreaming the dream and the dream has an experience that ‘no one’ feels is real. Is the experience real? Is there anyone there to experience anything? The ‘Real’ Is the dreaming. There is no other. ‘No one’ cannot be found except as an illusion, in the dream. We can believe that ‘no one’ is real. But then that ‘belief’ does not test out.
When we applaud ourselves for ‘having’ a profound experience, we are basically applauding ‘no one’. And ‘no one’ is a certified illusion. Applauding here, is affirming the illusory idea of what we ‘think’ we are. Existence is before any thought or illusion to include ‘no one’. Losing the ‘knowing’ of existence is losing the clear starting point of whom we really Are.
When we feel we have ‘not’ had the experience we should have had, then we clearly indulge in more of the affirming of ‘no one’.
There is no loss or gain, ever. There Is only the ‘Fullness’ of whom We Are constantly beyond even time. The seeking establishes and re-establishes the ‘no one’ who thinks it is ‘someone’. Seeing the process of the creation and supplication to ‘no one’ is what liberates Us from ‘no one’.
Be ‘that’, effortlessly. Be only the experiencing not the experience. Experiencing is the verb that never stops. Experience is the noun that stops and ends. All ‘this’ Is effortless
“Pure Knowing, without a subject that knows or an object that is known, is what we are, not what we do. Thus, for our Self, to know is to be, and to be is to know.” -RUPERT SPIRA
Know the ‘knowing’. Be the ‘dreaming’. See the Seeing seeing. We Are the Seeing of everything.
Love Loves Love, Daddy’O
THERE IS NO FUTURE IN THE FUTURE
There is no Reality in unreality. Future never comes. And when it appears to arrive, it is never the same imagined future we thought it was.
‘Future’ is a concept necessary for linear time. It is functional only when it is not dysfunctional.
Functionality predisposes us to using the legitimate operating principles of planning and experiencing, while “in the Moment”. It is not that we stop using or denying the concept of ‘future’. It is more that we don’t allow the concept to use Us and thereby invite distortion of identity, confusion, illusion, and false premises.
Illustratively, dysfunction abides boldly in the open when we ‘seek’ the presumed ‘good’ in the future, as a presumed necessary step in our evolution. The mass illusion we participate in, is justifying living for an illusion (future) and not Being Present to what is always present i.e. what we are looking for in the future.
Looking to the future to ‘get’ what we are not getting in the Present is to overtly deny the problem we are having with the ‘present’. The ‘present’ is not a problem. The ‘present’ is ultimately the ’Now’ unbound by time.
The ‘present’ as ‘problem’ is very problematic. The resistance to the ‘present’ is the real problem. The ‘present’ is never a problem unless we distort it.
The resistance to the ‘present’, is what we are afraid of ’seeing’. Our resistance to “What Is” is based on some idea that “What Is” is not Us.
The duality of concepts and the preference for one pole versus another, is the checking in of constant separation (from the Whole). Literally grabbing on to this is ‘right’ and this is ‘wrong’, is the bipolar disorder of much of humanity. There is no freedom or openness in this ‘grabbing’ and ‘holding’ of imaginary lines.
‘Both/and’ is much closer to full acceptance and the freedom of movement away from the single line of ‘my idea/position’. Freedom draws no lines through the infinite circle of possible lines that can be drawn. Freedom/acceptance is all lines in the circle, drawing (holding) none.
Ergo, Being Present is drawing no lines ever. Future draws us in the illusion from the ‘present’. Conversely, Reality experienced is only Presence. The idea of ‘future’, owning ‘this’ or ‘that’, is the idea of future lying to us about its false promise. Integration can never be achieved in a distorted state e.g. future. Drawing lines is arguing with Presence.
The ‘pushing’ for the future is a vaunted characteristic of success. ‘Pushing’ always results in distortion as ‘pushing’ is never found in Awareness. ‘Pushing’ also throws us into the vagaries of thought/mind and the loss of clarity.
Being Present is full. There is no ’need’ to supplant ‘fullness’. ‘Fullness’ Is contentment. Contentment is inherently acceptance of the optimal balance of ‘Being’ without neediness of anything. It Is a self-fulfilling existence as ‘this’ existence is inherently always ‘full’ in Its Presence. Presence has no self-interest as a consequence of Its ‘fullness’.
Seeking or resistance to “What Is” is the formula for suffering. Waiting for the future is suffering in the present.
In the awakeness and clarity of Now, we are alive with ‘fullness’. There is no future to go to as it all Is as It Is. Is ‘pushing’ (aka resistance) more fun than effortlessness? More can get accomplished without ‘pushing’ or giving away our Presence to a mythical future. Timelessness never has the limitation of ‘future’.
“Thought has taken the ever-present reality that properly belongs to Me, Awareness, and superimposed it upon the mind, body and world. Give back to Me what properly belongs to Me, and everything will fall into place.” -Rupert Spira
