This book is about the source of life: You. It uses words, which cannot describe but only point, to encourage you to set aside preconceptions in favor of directly looking at WHAT IS to recognize that... More > you are both present and aware and that this presence-awareness seeing everything now is the fundamental reality and YOU ARE THAT. This book is not about answering your questions about life, but instead dissolving them so that you may see that the questions have no existence apart from the presence-awareness and only have meaning in relation to the idea of a separate person, which you may have taken yourself to be. But this separate person can only exist as an idea and is unreal. You are totally and perfectly free right now. The "you" that you think you are is perfectly described by the ways in which you believe that not to be true. Your true freedom is beyond belief and beyond description.< Less

What this book is pointing towards is the absolute nature of life beyond the “level” of appearances – duality, the world of opposites. When “one” seemingly opens to this... More > realization — which is a recognition (not a learning or attainment), the shell of separation dissolves. As long as one appears to be a separate individual within this world of appearances, there are concepts (assumptions), which underlie this belief in this appearance. These assumptions are like painted walls standing around the periphery of our experience of the “world,” which act as a backdrop which defines and limits our perception to this apparent scope of existence... Apart from the awareness which we all possess (although not as individuals as it is commonly believed), nothing at all exists — except as an appearance in this self-same awareness. Awareness is the ultimate backdrop to all existence and makes up the background, foreground, and every other “part”.< Less

This small companion book to Beyond Description: Notes on the Dissolution of a Seeker consists mostly of dialogs with readers of the first book along with a few short pieces similar in style to those...

What is being pointed to here is so simple that it may not be understood or may be overlooked by some. “Understanding” seems to be at least partly an intellectual process, however many claim to have an “intellectual understanding” yet feel that something is still being missed. The process of dialog is very helpful as it provides a tangible jumping off point between an intellectual understanding and a direct seeing of what these words are pointing towards. Intellectual understanding is only useful to a point – to the point which it is realized that “the understanding” is (and can only be) non-conceptual. Concepts are the apparent trap which create the sense of separation that fuels the search for wholeness.< Less

This book is the third volume of a trilogy began with "Beyond Description" and "Aren't You Just This?". It is aimed at the "spiritual seekers" who have realized that... More > presence awareness is what they are seeking, yet they still feel that they are something separate from that. It is pointed out here that the seeker, the separate person, is the apparent result of a chain of concepts arising out of this presence awareness but can never actually be anything apart from it. "Waking up" is simply a matter of seeing through the appearance of the concepts to their source: this presence awareness here that we all are. It is only the assumption that the apparent separate self is real which seems to make this a difficult or protracted process. By dropping all concepts and looking at our direct experience, we can see that this is effortless and there is no "one" here to have any problems.< Less
