You Are Not Lost


Nothing can bring you closer to This,
Nothing can move you away...
The one who wants to find liberation doesn't exist.

You cannot turn in any direction and find anything other than THIS, which is YOU.
Like the sea 100 ft. deep, where is the "separate drop" of water which goes its own way?

No guru can give This to you, no "teacher" can take It away...
Understanding seemingly happens in YOU, as YOU.
And if there appears to be no understanding, YOU still ARE.

You can't tie yourself up in knots trying to "get" This, who is doing it?
If an intense urge arises to investigate, then that's what IS, now - who can stop it?
If a total collapse and sense of helplessness arise, then that is what IS, now...are "you" doing it?

If there is truly no one, then no one can cause anything,
Or stop what is, inevitable.

You cannot become lost, you ARE NOT LOST.
"Lostness" is an idea twinkling like a star - here, gone, here, gone, here, gone...
Just like the "me" in daylight and then in deep, dreamless sleep..

A belief in a "me" doesn't affect YOU at all.
Identification is as ephemeral as that fat fluffy cloud in the sky....try to grab it, what happens?
Ultimate Reality doesn't need understanding or recognition or liberation...it already IS.
And that is more than enough..

What am I?

There is no answer, and no desire for one.

The Best Pointer Is Silence


There are no teachers of Advaita, neither on this blog nor anywhere else.


What is, cannot be taught, known, or understood. There is no one to know This. There is no one who knows Beingness better than another.

What seems to be happening is a sharing, an expressing....some expressions seem to resonate....or not....but it's all happening in the dream of Oneness....in reality, nothing is happening at all.

Words fall so short! How to express Beingness? Well, just look around....everything is Beingness. And "everything" is really nothing. It might be called energy, vibration, presence...or "suchness." These words may get close to describing what is....but they can never quite do it, can they?

Spontaneous "is-ing".... expressions arise....there is no purpose, they simply appear as something which is really nothing.... no one to teach, no one to learn or "get" This.... it is already "gotten" because YOU ARE This.

The "me" that seems to be appearing does not know that, and never will.

The drop of water 100 ft. deep is thirsty. In reality it is drowning in Itself.
