Reality


Spirituality, like all words, is a concept.
We do not know exactly what it is but
have endowed it with all kinds of meaning.
And for every person it represent something else:

Higher states of consciousness.
Hours of meditation to reach enlightenment.
The assuming of an attitude of aloofness and holiness.
The belief in a deeper/higher reality than what we are able to perceive.
Devotion for deities, gods and gurus.

The list is long.

And yes, it is all in the realm of possibilities in the story of humankind.

What is talked about here is something different.
It is plain looking at what is real,
without concepts and beliefs.

Reality as defined in a dictionary:
something that exists independently of all other things
and from which all other things derive.

Simply looking what is.
Life perceiving Itself.
As it is.

Do you know?


Who are you right now?

Do you know?

Did you ever ask this question?

Are you your body?
No, I am more than the body, obviously..

Are you your thoughts?
Not really, thoughts are coming and going continuously..

Are you your feelings, and emotions then?
Well, they are felt to be closer somehow, but..
they also go again...

What about sensations and perceptions?
They are always changing...

Then who is it that notices these phenomena?

What is looking?

What is aware?

Can you name this?

Does it have any qualities?

Is it not this open spacious field
in which everything appears and disappears?



Awareness of awareness
is sat chit ananda.

Other ?


There is no other.
All perceptions take place in my self.
No where else will i be able to perceive
the sights and smells, the sounds and
sense perceptions except in the empty
space where it always occurs.
Right here and now
my very own self.

Thoughts about others and memories
are taking place in this placeless place.

The appearance of and thoughts about
the person i have come to believe is myself,
are also only taking place in this spaceless space.

Which sees and observes.
but can itself never be seen or observed.

When there is no thought
do you stop existing?
Is there not Something just noticing
and observing?

Did you notice?

Anyway


Do not believe anything written here.
Its all concepts.
All crap.
All second hand information.
No use to any body.

And while one is looking for something
Life is happening anyway.

Did you notice?

Seeing - Knowing


The knowing referred to here is
already operating in every one.
This knowing is immediate and effortless.
Its the direct perceptions through the senses.
Without it no body mind organism could function in this world.

This knowing is not an intellectual knowledge,
thinking things over, forming an opinion.
Its not an encyclopedia of facts which one can bring forth
at timely moments.
Its not the akashwa records which mysteriously drops down
and makes one spout utterances of past lives and future events.

This knowing is the immediate noticing of all that is present.
Which is ALWAYS operating already whether one notices this consciously
or not.
Its knowing without a doubt the sensations of hearing, tasting, seeing,
smelling, thinking, sensing at every moment.

The moment food comes in the mouth,
immediately one KNOWS
( without labeling it as such )
whether the food is hot or cold,
whether it is salty or sweet,
whether it is smooth and soft
or crisp and chunky.
Nobody needs to tell you that.

Its the immediate KNOWING
( without labeling it as such )
of a headache
or tickling sensations on the foot.
Whether a sense of well being is there
or a bout of depression
or some irritations.
Nobody needs to tell you that.

Its the immediate effortless knowing of all
that comes in through the senses.
Its as simple as that.
Appearing in the immediacy of presence
of what you are.

Just this.

Effortlessly


See what is happening right now.

This is it.
The experience of this moment
is all there ever is.

Always only this moment.
That is all there is to it.
There never will be anything else then this moment.
Now.
And again now, only now.

All stories that you are not there yet,
the idea of the seeker,
and something to find,
all ideas of salvation in the future
are only a continuation of the created identity
to perpetuate its own illusory existence.

Life is just life.
Simplicity itself.
Effortlessly perceived.

Life itself


Of all things the most amazing is
Life itself.
Which is no thing
Which is all there is
Which is you
You are all there is

There are no clear borders between what you
take yourself to be and feelings, thoughts, perceptions, the world.
Nothing is demarcated indicating:
Here is where you stop
and the perception of something else starts.

There is no separation, check it out.
Its all happening in the one space which is you.

There you are
