Lessons in Evil

When the child was asked what she learned at school that day she said that 'someone was wicked and did bad things'. The parent said 'are you telling me what happened or what you learned?' The child said 'both, they were wicked and we all learned from that to be good'.


So the evil are as much gurus to pointing to the true self as are the good. Maybe they teach more directly.

No push over

A person just let the world spin and allowed the people around to do as they pleased.

A friend of his noticed that due to this kind and simple nature the man was being mistreated by his employer. The friend said;

“Hey don't let people push you around.”

The man replied “ok!” and sat just as he was before.

The friend said “Well, what are you doing?”

The man sat and said calmly “As you said, I'm not letting anyone push me around”.

A starving group are told by a messenger that there is food of great delight in two locations, both quite near. In fact both just as close; one 2 miles East and one 2 miles West.

Some of the group inquired as to what else was at these locations and the messenger said that one was famous for fine dresses and one for fine shoes.

To this day you can see a pile of human remains in this same location. A location where 50 starving people argued over shoes and dresses when all they needed was food.

I give to you yourself

By offering 'yourself' to one higher, you are offering something fake (your idea of separate self) to something equally fake, as it has its conceptual reality based on your initial false premise: that idea of a separate self which may be offered.

Yet, to give yourself up...

The person of Tao

The 'real' person, the person of Tao - truly a Tao master - Is someone you have met and had no idea of their views, wants, needs, likes or dislikes.

Religion never came up in conversation, they were good to you but never made out they were being good. They were calm and collected but never felt the need to tell you how easy going they were. They fitted in and blended with the crowd without any loss of individuality. They were good at all things that came their way, did their best and had no bashfulness over their poor performance or ego over their greater achievements. They shone with an inner brightness and radiated a deep seated warmth but wore no label, no jewels, no robe, no dog collar, no stripes on their arms, no marks of distinction.

Fitting in and getting along they were solid and dependable - you could miss them for a day or a year and be greeted the same on meeting again. Always fit for a good laugh and a joke, they could be told your inner woes and neither give you advice or break your trust. If you asked for advice on life they'd tell you something about death, if you asked for advice on colours they'd play you a song, if you wanted fine food they'd make you some tea. On every occasion meeting your needs in the most simplistic, unassuming yet well chosen responses.

They appeared in your life without you noticing them, and disappeared softly without a trace. They were your greatest masters and never asked for thanks. You probably owe them your heartfelt gratitude but their reward is that you treated them like a completely normal person.

Action towards happiness

Don't do that thing to make you happy. As what will happen after?

Do it when you are happy. Then you'll know if it really needs doing.

Certainly time to relax

You know for sure the sun will rise sometime after it sets.

If this did not happen nothing would matter anyway so you accept this so solidly that you never question it.

You know for sure that it will rain in the future. You are so certain that your shoe will fit that you thrust it on your foot and go about your day without measuring it first.

I will tell you for sure also that good will come. Can you accept that in the same way?

Accept with no concern that life will work out, dedicate your thoughts only to inner peace now.

How far do you take it?

He trained himself to go without food.

And on the day he had it perfected.

He died.

Did you lose your way?


Worry not. - This can be the only way!

Turn your attention

Layers and realms of the universe and heavens, levels of spiritual mastery or achievement, exist only as pointers to that which is in you.

The truth is never really 'out-there', to be reached for, or so on. All of that, and the truth itself, exist by one root. Being.

All such ideas are mere pointing to ways of uncovering the mystery who's clearest answer is in your own being.

Being receptive not forceful

What does it take for lady Yin to draw master Yang to her?

She just opens to this.


Tuesday, 16 February 2010

practice IS perfection

Whatever you did to get you to truth, you must now maintain that practice to keep it.

You, did nothing.

Knowing or Wisdom

Feeling like you don't know, you seek knowledge.

Knowledge from others is not complete and not your own.

So you feel even more like you don't know.

The wise at this point say “I can't know” and shift their attentions to perfecting this wisdom.

Gain Gain Gain

You want to be given wealth and material reward? Go to work.

You want to be fed by the infinite stream and have bliss in every moment? Give up doing.

Gaining EveryNothing

So now you have seen truth. You have achieved nothing!

Well done! As if you had something you could lose it.

So be safe in the absence and dwell in the bliss of it!

Solid Foundations

That something (call it a universe or any other name) has come about and produced forms, some of which feel separate and the various emotions, you can only feel a deep compassion. Most of all to yourself, as you too are as illusory conceived as the rest.

Any negative must be put aside as to attempt to form a better way whilst being a suffering part can neither benefit you or the whole.

Never make a choice whilst sad. All decisions must arise from happiness and so the future will be based on this.

Sad: Separate. Happy: True being whole.

Spiritual Journey

The hardest part of the journey is the beginning as it is a journey..

..the end is a shock as you realise it was not.

Cast Away

Don't hold onto bad memories, don't hold on to ideas.

The more you learn that then the less you need.

Perfectly at rest


The master does nothing, and the best advice is to do nothing.

Light in Shade

Sit in the shade,
take off your mask,

there is nothing here but infinite bliss.

Be at rest for Peace

Just stop and the world becomes natural and right.

This can be the only way.

Universe Verse


The only unrest in the universe is on the minds of some humans.

Stream of Wisdom

There has been a stream of wisdom passing down the ages and at every turn man has attempted to collect the water into a container so that he can wrap his mind around it.

Those containers don't flow, they stagnate, the flow continues in the stream.

Let go of your stagnation and let it back into the stream to flow.

Bliss Is


It is enough to accept that all is bliss and that anything else is a misinterpretation.

Meaning of life

You want the truth to the Universe?

You have it already in your own being.

Stop looking and you'll see.

"Oh I don't understand this"

"How can humans do that?"

"I just don't see why" ... ... ...


It is not your job to see why.

Is Is Is

This is the self expression of the ultimate - it is infinite, of course you don't understand.

But stand back and stop being that abstraction you call I. Take a minute to see that you are the infinite itself, expressing itself - and blow your mind.
