the moon in the NW quadrant is in good aspect to the sun in the NE.. they are both going from fire to earth signs ... this is why September is the official end of hot summer, although the weather stays hot and autumn equinox is not until the end of the month... because people are coming back down to earth, paying…Continue

I think this is a good topic so I am reposting it as an unrestricted blog here. I already joined the K network so I don't think I need to continue joining groups to discuss these issues. Here anyone can respond without joining a group, being censored in a controlled dialogue, with proselytizing, leaders and followers, groupies and all the rest. My take on this is that there is not one molecule or a particle of difference between the two statements. They are the same. In the first instance…Continue
There are two meanings of the term "awareness" commonly in use:
Dual-awareness has a subject (the awarer) and an object (the awared). The subject is the self. The object can be gross: "I am aware of the tree over there." Or it can be subtle: "I am aware that I am aware of the tree."
Nondual-awareness has no subject/object division. It* does not see individual objects (things, events, etc.), because there are no individual objects. It leaves no impression, no flavor, no trace.…Continue

This consciousness which is conditioning itself through it's own volitional activities - this 'I' process of ignorance, wants, fear, illusion - is the centre of action. This centre is continually reforming itself and creating anew its own limitation through its own volitional activities, and so there is always conflict, pain, sorrow. There must be a fundamental change in consciousness, in this very centre of action; mere discipline and the authority of ideals cannot bring about the cessation of…Continue

Why am I here?Do you ask this question? Nothing seems to be making sense? You aren't getting sensible responses? There doesn't seem to be much meaningful discussion.I might ask any question. It doesn't matter what place it is. Depending on the question there are answers, technical, informative, instructional, advisory, and even scientific, religious, and so on. These are straightforward questions of knowledge and there are all kinds of answers and guesses. Usually then, asking questions I…Continue

All these years of participating in dialogues pertaining to K seem to have accomplished absolutely nothing. Nothing has changed in my life. Thought still rules, and where thought rules, there is no observation. Broadly speaking, of course. In the margins one might argue otherwise, but that would merely be a waste of time.Is there something I'm doing wrong. Or is there something I'm failing to do? But when I look around, much the same picture appears everywhere. And of course K did…Continue

one of the ways in which we can read this life and the teachings; we can make them light up the many windows of the past; certainly the first talk at Saanen is all world war in the first 50 years of the 20th century we can watch the famous persons in their familiar habits and fancy sometimes that we are very close and can surprise their secrets, and sometimes we may pull out a piece de resistance that they have written and see how it reads differently in the presence of some authority on the…Continue

Why do we inquire?Is it because there is a basic sense that 'me and my reality' are somehow unsatisfactory as they are?If so, with what are we comparing? Why compare what is with what could, or 'should', be?Is there a desire for change? If so, this implies time. Are we imagining some future state and attempting to bring it into being? Does this process take place entirely within the realm of abstract thought?If there is desire, time and thought involved, is what we call 'inquiry' actually a…Continue

"We were talking about time: time as the past, if I may briefly repeat, time as the past, time as the future, time now, at this second. We were saying also that all time, the past, the present and the future is contained in the now. We went into it fairly thoroughly, that the future is the present, because what we are now, our behaviour, our vulgarity, our - what? - our cruelty, bestiality, terror, and all the rest of it, what we are now, violent, tomorrow will also be violent if there is no…Continue
