Life is a gift, but we forget this and end up not being grateful. Observing life via the ego, we feel unhappy, hurt, and confused because we aren’t getting what we want. However, when we drop the ego, we are no longer in conflict with life, which allows the infinite whole to flow through us […]
Everyone wants to be healthy, yet so many of us are repeatedly sick and some of us seemingly cannot get well. We experience illness as something extremely personal––in some ways, one of the most deeply felt personal experiences we ever have. Similarly we tend to think of our health as highly personal, perhaps one of […]
Worldwide today, there is a broad eruption of deeper consciousness emerging across our entire species. It is trying to meet a global challenge facing humanity. Will we be able to achieve a healthy global civilization, transcending all the cultural “boxes” of the past, or will we not meet this “anthropological threshold” and, like all the […]
The English word, anxiety, a state of uneasiness, apprehension and uncertainty, comes from a Latin word meaning narrowing down. When you narrow down your consciousness you get the mind. When you narrow down the infinite you get the body. You are infinite becoming finite with your birth in this reality. Narrowing down your infiniteness you […]
Each moment of now, one has to be at ease with oneself. You cannot learn to be at ease; you can only be at ease. Do not try to improve; do not cultivate anything. Do whatsoever you are doing, but be at ease, be meditative, calm, and centred. Include yourself in everything you do. Include every experience in your consciousness. Include everything in your being. That is the meditation. That is the compassion. In compassionate state of being you have a feeling that there is no centre of you. And if there is no centre, there is no self, no ego, no mind, only consciousness conscious of itself.
The mind is only the surface of existence; it is not your centre and not your being. The mind is a tool to create, designate, and communicate when needed by the consciousness. And when not needed, it simply doesn’t exist. The whole problem is that the tool, at the circumference of your being, becomes the truth. It becomes who you are at the moment. The mind has to think twenty-four hours a day; it has to suppress the consciousness to project its own ego’s existence. That tool, that machine on the circumference of your being, has become too strong and persuasive, like a hard crust—it has become your attachment, your identification, your prison.
Seven Dream Bodies Let me remind you again. Maya means everything is dream. It is there because you wanted it to be there. The mind is a dream. All that belongs to the mind is a dream. All that the mind is doing is a dream. Positive or negative, good or bad, whatsoever—the mind is […]

The ancient Greeks believed that the breath is a giver of life, and when the body dies with the last breath, the soul leaves the body. The word ‘psychosis’ contains the root psyche, (soul, mind, or spirit) and it’s associated with the essence of life (or ‘giver of life’), so psychosis has come to mean […]
TETHOS – ORIGIN: from Middle French methode, from Latin methodus, “way of teaching or going,” from Greek methodus, “scientific inquiry, method of inquiry,” originally “pursuit, following after,” from meta- “after,” “a traveling, way.” Meditation requires a method to go into a spaceless whole. Love doesn’t require any method because it involves total surrender to the […]
I was having a conversation with some Buddhist monk who got offended by the title of one of my Sacred Geometry Yantras called ‘Suffering is NOT.’ He said, “How can you mislead people stating that there is no suffering in life? Buddha said, ‘Life is suffering’, that is his first noble truth.” “How do you […]
Question What does the “Finger Pointing to the Moon” Zen analogy mean? Zen doesn’t say things in syllogisms, but in poetry. Zen is not what it says. Zen is what it shows. Listen and look. Don’t say anything. What do you see? Nothing! That is Zen. Buddha said, ‘Be a light unto yourself’. Buddha’s message […]
Question Is there any shortcut to enlightenment? Yes there is. This is the simple formula to get enlightened instantly, right now. Are you ready? I don’t know who I am, but I know that I am. I don’t know how I know, but I know that I know. In this process of knowing, ‘I’ am […]
Self-remembering is a methodless method that leads toward unity with the whole. When all your unconscious activities become the conscious act of now, and all your doing has been replaced with non-doing, you remember One-Self and have attained awareness. In awareness, you aren’t aware of your awareness. To be aware of your awareness, distance is […]
