Ernie,

 

Nice!  As one of my teachers shared – “Every thought is a limitation.   Thought, by its nature is a form, and all forms are limited”

Beloved,

 

By definition, techniques are time bound concepts--all thoughts are not true and imbued with error and are short lived.  Only that which does not change is true: only one and not two--the vast ocean of silence, awareness, being-ness, loving-ness.

 

 

John Wheeler: 

"Any teaching needs be examined critically and the results verified against one's experience. Keep in mind that what is being pointed to (your natural state) is not a “teaching” at all. So once you begin to consider a teaching as such, what you are dealing with is concepts, not the reality. This is true for any teaching, however lofty and sublime it may be regarded. This goes for non-dualistic Advaita Vedanta, Buddhism, etc., even in their highest presentations. The presentation is itself in concepts. But what is being pointed to is not a concept. Past a point, words and teachings tend to overcomplicate the direct and simple truth of things. Reality is not a teaching. It is what is, not a concept about what is."

 

John Wheeler is in Santa Cruz and holds meetings once a week on Thursdays.  His website above, Thenaturalstate.org/ for contact information.  John has gone home--his ego died a few years back.

It is my fervent prayer that "I" die soon.  May it happen to all of us.  But it is a pathless path and you must be guided by 'guru' within yourself.  Those, like John Wheeler, who are awake now, can only point the way--"The truth that can be spoken is not the truth." 

 

Love,

Ernie

Hi Brett and everyone,

I found this article very insightful, although he doesn't reference Buddhist thought explicitly but in an intellectual way comes full-circle to realize the importance of developing one's consciousness. Steve Pavlina's site is free and rich with wisdom.

The Yoga Nidra CD I spoke about on Monday's meditation is here:
