Emptiness Is All You Need, To Know

When the mind is free of bias,
the view is clear.
In emptiness, my likes, my dislikes, my carelessness
are clearly recognised.

We can also recognise when others’ are imposing
their likes, dislikes and carelessness onto us.

Ultimately, We Become Apostates

In the moment of pure consciousness,
we abandon all claims and beliefs.

Apostate: Middle English from ecclesiastical Latin apostata, from Greek apostatēs – apostate, runaway slave. Abandonment of a claim, right, possession, a cause, bad habit, or way of life. Renouncing religious or political beliefs or principle.

Ultimately, we become non-conformist renunciants.
Jesus was. Buddha was. Socrates was.
Anyone who transcends this mortal coil is.

Concepts and beliefs are a dangerous business. We are led to believe that an apostate is someone who no longer believes and is, at the least, shunned. No longer believing could be seen as equivalent to blasphemy, the act of insulting a deity, or showing a lack of reverence toward something considered sacred. The scary thing is that, in some social circles, one can be arrested or even put to death for not believing.

Some religions consider blasphemy to be a religious crime, so if we do not go along with religious beliefs, this could be thought of as a hate crime. Nowadays, this ‘thought crime’ extends to matters such as gender reorientation; we are told to believe what another believes.

Being shunned by fellow students is part of the fixated mindset. There are spiritual students who will not talk to others because they do not believe in the same way. Nothing changes: in the middle ages, if a man healed people with herbs and medicines he was thought of as an apothecary, whereas if a woman did the same, she would have been condemned as a witch. Simply put, we are supposed to know our place.

Religion means ‘to bind’.
It seems we have to believe what we are told,
rather than realising that we are actually free in the moment of seeing.
In pure consciousness, there in nothing to hold onto.

We should all be mindful of what we do, think or say.

Levels Of Consciousness

As we train our mind, we raise the level of consciousness. By remembering and valuing pure consciousness, the frequency of forgetting shortens, and so we stay in pure consciousness longer.

Distractions cause us to wander off, and we forget what we are (distractions are mental obscurations to which we cling, and fixate about). Remembering cuts through all mental obscurations, and we are free in the moment of seeing. But how often do we remember?

The diagram below is not literal: there may be ten levels or billions of levels – or perhaps we group. They do say birds of a feather flock together… We can be the judge of this as we know how often we remember, don’t we? However we are, we can change in an instant!

Intellectually, we can see how most people live their lives, in various levels of distraction; this could be termed ‘various levels of ignorance’. Most of us live in the past or future. Conversations are either lost in history (what we’ve done) or geography (where we’ve been) … distractions, distractions, distractions… How often do people live in the moment now?

But there is something constant that goes unnoticed. The dotted line represents our endless, pure nature of conscious awareness, our Buddha nature or enlightened nature. The wavy lines indicates how often we wander off, indicating how often we return to sanity.

We all have a principle that makes our life worthwhile. In Buddhism, this principle is pure, compassionate awareness. The more we remember, the more we return and rest there.

The dotted line is our ruler, our guide: we may wander off but, in remembering, we return again and again. The trick is not to wander off! This is about the clarity of cognisance. Enlightenment occurs when we never wander off, day or night.

This Person Isn’t Me

Person: from Old French persone, from Latin persona;
‘actor’s mask, character in a play’
Later- human being.

So what am I?
We are not exactly that which is aware of this persona, this mask: that is ordinary consciousness. On a subtler level, we are aware of this. On an extremely subtle level, pure consciousness is beyond any self identification.

Don’t believe me!

The Two Aspects of Our Being

The pure, empty spirit of cognisant consciousness, and reflections of thoughts and images.

Our absolute being is like an clear mirror that reflects everything without comment. When this pure consciousness (absolute truth) attaches itself to thoughts and images, we called that relative truth, because we are relating to phenomena.

This relating is in the nature of memories and judgements, and that is why we just react, going into our usual act or programme. If we are subject to reacting to these memories and judgements, then we can be manipulated. How do we get memories and judgements? Education and the media. Oh, you thought you were original?! 😀

These images in the mind have no actual reality, but because we relate to or believe in them, they seem very real. The words and images on this computer screen are only seen in the mind via the brain mechanism and senses. We may think that thoughts are just seen, so why should we bother about whether they’re inside or outside? Well, it takes time for that seeing to be processed in order for us to make decisions. The problem is that we do not see clearly because, a milli-moment later, we relate to memories and then judgements, and that clouds our reality. We stop seeing and start relating, and we have moved from being mode to having mode.

To realise our true nature – which is Buddha nature or enlightened nature – we use six instructions that are the path to true realisation. Five relate to relative truth (our everyday experiences) and the sixth is the enlightened realisation.

These six instructions are our path to enlightenment: generosity, patience, morality/conscience, discipline/perseverance, meditation/concentration and wisdom. Wisdom (or transcendent knowledge) is the goal; that is pure consciousness.

Now, there are two paths we can take. We can either start with the five relative instructions for daily life and gradually realise the sixth, or we can start with the sixth, and use the five to support our conduct in daily life.

By the way, pure consciousness is being original!

Dealing With An Agitated Mind

Simply be aware of that which is aware of the agitation,
and rest that clarity.
The same goes for all emotions.

Knowing that the Sanskrit word for ‘suffering’ is ‘duhkha’
doesn’t help, does it?

There is no magic in Pali, Sanskrit, or Tibetan languages: it is the meaning that comes from silent realisation of pure experience that is important. The formulation of vowels and consonants are metered to chant nicely in those languages, and that’s all. Their only power is in our imagination – it’s psychological.

Simply adopting foreign words (where there is an equivalent in your own language) is pompous, and an unnecessary cultivation. If we cultivate, we create a cult attitude, and are blind to the greater picture. To walk into a cafe and ask for a fried yumurta anywhere other than Azerbijan would just cause confusion … 😀

It is the realisation of experience that brings forth true confidence. We deal with confusion by simply being aware of that which is aware of the confusion, and rest that clarity. We don’t need to make life more complicated.

Pure consciousness is not Buddhism. Buddhism offers a way to realise pure consciousness here and now, but we don’t have to be Buddhist to realise our true nature … the Buddha wasn’t. The same goes for God consciousness; we don’t have to be Christian – Christ wasn’t.

If we walk around with a badge saying “I’m Buddhist” or “I’m Christian” (or anything else for that matter), we will remain in a duality. Having a badge doesn’t mean the door will open. When we drop the badge, we realise that we are already through the door.

Waking Up To Waking Up To Waking Up

First, we wake up to lies and deception. Then we wake up from the pandemonium* of the pontificators** on podiums*** giving us antidotes that only make the lies and deception seem more real. Finally, we walk off into the sunset leaving it all behind, thankful that it was seeing the lies and deception that actually woke us up! 😀

* place of demons.** dogma laid down  as undeniably true*** place above an audience

We realise that life is unsatisfactory. We seek answers in philosophies or spiritual traditions that conjure up a set of ideas and rituals to counter this feeling of dissatisfaction, but all they do is create temporary antidotes. The antidotes make us feel that the dissatisfaction is real – so the dissatisfaction returns … and antidotes become a business.

Finally, we decide on what actually works for us – the realisation that lies, deception and antidotes are a way of life – and we live happily ever after, knowing that the world iscrazy, and so now it all makes sense! 😀

Realising the dream is a sign post to waking up.

Adaptability is the Definition of Intelligence

If we are not adaptable, then we are fixated.

Whatever appears in a fixated mind is a threat.
Whatever appears in an open mind is wisdom.

Ultimately, an open mind is pure consciousness,
empty of contamination.

Anything that appears within that emptiness
is our spiritual path to enlightenment.

All appearances are empty of inherent existence,
and therefore a reminder
that appearances are emptiness within emptiness.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama said,
“If science proves Buddhism wrong, then Buddhism has to change.”
Have confidence in seeing rather than in beliefs.

The outcome is not taking anything too seriously!

Meditation: Order Out Of Chaos

Mental chaos occurs when pure consciousness (our true reality) becomes obscured by our fixations. That loss of pure, spontaneous clarity creates chaos, confusion and suffering. We become divided when we miss the oscillation between pure consciousness and contaminated consciousness. Contaminated consciousness is based on memories and judgements rather than immediate investigation before memories and judgements kick in.

Order means returning to our natural balance of pure consciousness, which is experienced and realised through meditation. Meditation is sitting quietly, seeing whatever is going on in our mind, and realising that we are, in fact, free in that moment of seeing. The purity sees the impurity; it’s that simple. When we become divided in consciousness, we experience doubt, confusion and frustration.

The resulting suffering comes about through the belief in and projection of an obsessive self image. When life becomes unsatisfactory, we look for someone to blame rather than taking personal responsibility. Seeing the entire picture is, unfortunately, rare; not seeing the wood for the trees, we become so involved in the details of things that we do not understand or pay attention to the most important parts of it.

We’ve all heard about the ‘Illuminati’, the committee of 300, Skull and Bones, the Trilateral Commission, reptilians etc that are said to want to control the population of the world. They create disorder to promote chaos, and then present us with an alternative order in their favour (“Order Out Of Chaos” is even on the US dollar bill).

This is all a smoke screen, an exaggeration, an exploitation of power. It’s all an act. Blaming others, we become divided, as this seems to be an easier option than realising that we can be free. We allow all this nonsense while not realising that, in the meantime, our inner chaos is being exploited through our addiction to ideas.

Yes, there are captains of chaos. Yes, they create havoc and confusion in the world. Yes, they make money-making laws, guns, films, games, media, pills, religions … but we don’t have to be drawn into their fantasy playground.

All these groups are just like us, controlled by desires and aversions and ignorant our true nature of pure, compassionate consciousness. It’s suggested that there is an evil behind these groups that wants to reduce the human population so that they can gain more power – but this is just another layer of mental confusion. Of course, the wealthy want to hang on to their wealth and live long and prosper, while lacking empathy for others and feeling entitled to do whatever they want. On a conventional level, such selfish principles will never end.

The only way out of this chaos is to accept that humans are governed by an idea of self importance and a sense of entitlement. We do not, however, have to follow in those footsteps. Meditation helps us both to see clearly, and to know when enough is enough.

Everything comes about by causes and conditions so things – although impermanent – never end; energy just changes form. We cannot stop the world and get off, but we can stop being caught up in others’ fantasies. Life is too short to worry about everything. Know thy self, and that which knows this knowing. Pure consciousness cannot be altered or modified, but only distracted.

The chaos is ultimately an illusion. If we back away from this illusion, it magnifies in our imagination. When we walk up to it and investigate, it is merely a puff of smoke.

Spiritually Empty?

Well, you can’t get better than that!
Em Ah Ho!
(how wonderful)

…what were you expecting?!

If Transmigration Is A Reality

If transmigration is a reality,
then everything we say, do and think will have an effect on our future.
Whatever we say, do and think now writes that future plan.

If transmigration is no ta reality,
then everything we say, do and think will have an effect on our future.
Whatever we say, do and think nowwrites that future plan.

Either way, being mindful of whatever we say, do and think enriches our lives.
The opposite of being mindful is being oblivious to the future effects
of whatever we say, do or think now.

An enriched life is one that has the fruitful potential of enlightenment.
Being enlightened is the realisation of our true nature,
having no script to follow, only nowness.

Nowness tells us what to say, do and think – and then we drop it.
The future is the next moment … fresh!

Either way, be happy with whatever occurs, because it is showing us something.
We may not like what we are being shown,
and that, in itself, is showing us something.

Is There a Universal Creator?

How did it all begin?

We have a distortion in our perception that creates an illusion.
Realising this illusion is the path to enlightened wisdom.

Most of us don’t bother with the question, “Is there a creator?”: we just continue in the illusion that we are making our own choices, unaware that we are governed by desires, judgements and indifference (‘indifference’ is another word for ignorance; we ignore our true nature of pure consciousness that doesn’t need, judge or ignore).

Many believe in God the creator to make sense of life, while being unaware that their minds are also governed by desires, judgements and indifference.

The minds of those who say that there is no creator are still governed by the same desires, judgements and indifference.

To prove what governs us, just walk into a room full of people and note to whom you are attracted, whom you avoid and whom you do not notice. These principles govern us – and the infinite universe – at every moment.

What does Buddhism say to this question of a creator?
Buddhists do not believe in God the creator … but there is a creator.

That creator is an ‘I’; a self image. If something is created, then it stands to reason that there would first have to be a desire to create. We desire, and so we create. In order to create, there has to be a plan. We are the creators of that plan which was produced from our desires, judgements and indifference: these three are thus the creators of the universe.

“How can we be the creator, and have a plan? I didn’t form a plan! I didn’t draw up any proposal!”

Plan: a detailed proposal for doing or achieving something.

Actually we all have a plan.
Desires, judgements and indifference are the creators of the universe: these three are attraction, repulsion and inertia. These principles arose when we created a self, forgetting that our absolute reality is above and beyond desires, judgements and indifference. Before these principles are activated, there has to be pure consciousness present.

Our desires created a plan, and for our plan to manifest, the natural principles of the universe bring about the necessary conditions through attraction, repulsion and inertia.

The plan was created by our desires (attraction) and, as we’re picky, the plan acquired judgements (repulsion). Because we are unaware of what we are doing, indifference arises and we ignore the effects of the plan (inertia). In other words, karma! Our karma wrote our plan.

So how does it all work?
As this is an alternative view between God the creatorandnatural selection, it is just something to consider. There are infinite beings (beings are anything that has a mind) in an infinite universe that transmigrate from form to form due to an individual, karmic plan.

The principle of the universe creates solar systems and planets whose suns run down, causing ‘big bangs’; the energy from those implosions brings energy for a new system. It’s infinite. At a certain time and place, a planet evolves with conditions for single cell life: from this, more complex forms evolve and attract ‘LIFE’. Transmigrating beings enter these cells and, gradually, intelligent life develops and appears as us. We have come a long way.

We can easily see that the life we lead is our creation, born of adapting to the collective. We, as a type, are attracted to certain areas on earth – like attracts like. Governed by desires, judgements and indifference, we suffer in chaos and confusion, constantly going up and down in this vicious cycle of existence.

We – and the universe – are one huge cycle of existence … until we decide to get off. We do this by we realising that the illusion never existed, and enlightenment is our reality.

It’s important to remember there is a difference between absolute reality and conventional, relative reality. We have to know the difference between the relative and absolute reality of the three principles: desire, judgement and indifference are relative terms, whereas, in absolute terms, these same principles are empty essence, cognisant nature and compassionate activity.

When an enlightened mind recognises the three negative principles, it remembers its true nature spontaneously. It is said, therefore, that the relative and absolute truths are, in fact, inseparable.

Is There a Universal Creator?
Funnily enough, there is.

Nobody Is Innocent, And Everyone Is Pure

Anyone could realise this, and Somebody did!

We all cause harm in some way.
Harm happens when consciousness adopts an ‘i’ to project.
We are here to reverse the harm this ‘i’ has caused,
or we can, of course, continue to project our ‘i’
and attract more of the same; harm.

“What harm have ‘i’ done?”
By this ‘i’ obsession,
we not only harm our own inner peace,
we harm the inner peace of others as well.

How do we switch off this projection?
By realising what we are doing,
we no longer harm others,
and bring to light both inner and outer peace.

How do we do that?
When we meditate,
we see the effect of our actions and,
in that moment of seeing,
we are free.

Being free is our natural state of pure, empty, unbiased awareness.

The way we see life
is the way life projects back to us.

When we project an ‘i’,
‘i’s are projected back to us.
When no ‘i’ is projected,
there is inner and outer peace.

Practice Is More Important Than Knowledge

Through practice, we realise the wisdom-knowledge within. Outer knowledge is theory. Inner realisation born of wisdom manifests as genuine empathetic compassion. That is the spiritual litmus test.

When stillness walks into a room, we know it.

The Name Of This Blog

I wanted to call the blog, “Buddhas In The Mud”, in the sense that we are all Buddhas dwelling in the mud of concepts.

But when spoken, that could sound like, “Buddha’s In The Mud”, meaning that the Buddha is in the mud, which he obviously isn’t 🙂

It’s the imagined apostrophe that’s the problem 😀

We are all potential Buddhas In The Mud.
As my Mum used to say,
“Now go and wash it off!”

There Is Nothing Spiritual About Belief

Belief is something we accept without proof, whereas spirituality is actual experience: it is realisation of the spirit of pure consciousness.

We can do this now. Look and see, and then drop all internal comments or feelings. For thousands of years, we have given our power away to something ‘up there’, or ‘down there’: the deception is obvious when pointed out.

Heaven is knowing our true nature of pure consciousness.
Hell is not knowing our true nature of pure consciousness.

In between is doubt.

We look and see that we are conscious. In that experience, we drop the looking and just see. We realise that, in just seeing, there is only the natural spontaneous presence of pure awareness or consciousness. When there is doubt, then we have to rely on belief which has to be maintained. It’s easier to purely know, as that’s maintenance-free. When we know, we can never not know.

Why Do We Refer To God As Him’?

This is not meant to be funny, politically correct, sexist or anti God. Not at all!
Why was man created in God’s image? Did God have dangly bits?

We have been fed illusion after illusion, obscuring reality for millennia.
God has to be pure consciousness. What else can God be?
We are pure consciousness. What else can we be?

Pure consciousness has neither gender nor agenda.
If God had a purpose, what is it? When we look at the world, whatever plan was envisaged hasn’t worked. Or has it?
Peace on Earth and good will to all ‘men’ ??!

People have claimed to have heard the word of God, declaring that God spoke to them. Why do we believe them? Have they actually said anything that clarifies reality, or do they just add to the story line?

Is that inner voice our inspiration?
Or self-aggrandisement?

We can all claim that God speaks to us, but words are part reasoning and part inspiration. When we realise that a Theistic God or Buddhist Rigpa is nothing other than our reality of pure consciousness, then we are free from intercessors who claim to be the holy ones, and tell us what we should be doing – and how much it costs :D.

Humanity has been bombarded with ideas for a very very long time and so, of course, it will be difficult to release ourselves from this programming.

Why do we have an ‘image’ of God as a him, when the commandments say: “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image”?

A subtle deception binds us. To know God or Rigpa – or whatever we want to call it – we merely look within and realise that we are what we seek.

Dangly bits and Gardens of Eden maintain life on Earth.
No dangly bits and Gardens of Eden, no enlightenment!

Do We Feel We’re Not Making Spiritual Progress?

This is a psychological dilemma rather than a spiritual one. Spirit is nothing more than pure consciousness; it’s what we are, right now. It is that which sees these words without comment or judgement. Our spiritual essence isn’t something ‘airy fairy’ that drifts around, a soul in the ether: that concept of an ethereal soul is a psychological idea that has led us astray and separated us from our reality (wandering around in the ether is what we are said to do after death!).

Spiritual progress is to do with levels of confidence in clarity without bias, having compassion for all. This doesn’t mean that slanted views go unnoticed.

Anecdotes of others’ spiritual lives may skew our insight – that was theirlife, and our life is ours. Some have paths of bliss and wonder, and some have paths of sticks and stones to climb over. We are not here to conform to a type: this conformity is seen all too often in ‘spiritual’ centres. The way we manifest is down to our pattern of karma, which is the raw material that shows us our path. We’re not here to put on an act, but to deal with raw experience.

Spiritual progress is being content with our ‘shit’, warts and all. Only then can we empathise and understand how others may feel, having compassion and listening. Maybe spiritual progress is just about being able to listen, hear and drop judgements.

Actually, this is precisely the direct pointing out instruction on the nature of mind of Dzogchen – look, see, drop – which is illustrated by a gesture from the teacher: hands up, palms facing out (look), palms turned in to face us (see), hands dropped onto the lap (drop all judgement).

So, spiritual progress is the ability to just drop whatever we are holding onto.

Absurdly simple.

Finding What You Are Looking For

There are around 2,360 entries on this blog … probably too many 😀

In ‘Search’ (right at the bottom of the page), try typing a word that comes to mind, and see what pops up. I do this all the time: you’d be surprised at the connections that seem to come out of the blue. I find I have an abstract idea floating around in my mind, and I pick up a random text – and wow! The dots join up, as if like attracts like. Dictionaries are great for this as they expose a deeper meaning of a word.

An example:A common phrase such as, “The truth is in plain sight” may come to mind: I wondered what ‘plain’ meant.
Plain:not decorated or elaborate; simple or basic in character. Having no pretensions; not remarkable or special. Easy to perceive or understand; clear. Hidden in plain sight. 

‘Plain sight’ is nothing other than pure consciousness. There is nothing remarkable or special in this as it is Buddha nature, and we are all Buddha nature. That conclusion is so satisfying.

I find it difficult to believe in the supernatural,
but there is always something in the atmosphere!
😀 😀 😀

The purpose of this blog is to find want is needed, apply it and see if it works. There are some strange ideas being fed into society that divide us from our common sense. When we use words in a limited way, it limits us: this is one reason why different generations may find it difficult to communicate. More and more youngsters are feeling depressed, isolated and pointless. Religions do not seem to be the answer as they just formalise and generalise a set path.

Doublespeak is the complete opposite of plain and simple truth, distorting words and phrases in order to bury a truth. Euphemisms attempt to make certain situations more palatable, deliberately muddying the water. Doublespeak is a deliberately euphemistic, ambiguous, or obscure language that infects the minds of the masses: thoughts and ideas mould us and we become complaint with others’ views.

This blog is just about being aware, and then being aware of awareness; consciousness. Pure consciousness. That is the first and foremost truth. In the Tibetan Nyingma tradition, this is called Dzogchen. You are Dzogchen! That is what you are looking for.

All religions have a element of truth in them, but we tend to become stuck in the decoration and elaboration, and lose the simplicity of pure consciousness. The confusion surrounding elaborations keeps us running back. Realising the essence, we are free.

Robot To Preach At Buddhist Temple

“Kannon” is designed to attract young people to a Kyoto temple.

The question is, “Why?”

Is the path of believing a machine
the path to believing any machine?

And who writes the data?
And at what level?

The Three Causes Of The Known Universe

We all know them:

Positive, negative and neutral.
Attraction, repulsion and inertia.
Desire, aversion and indifference.

The three poisons obscuring spiritual realisation.

The Three Causes of the Knowing Universe

Emptiness, cognisance, compassion.
The three wisdoms to spiritual realisation.

The correlation

Desire = Emptiness
Aversion = Awareness
Ignorance = Compassion

When we forget emptiness, desire fills emptiness with concepts.
When we forget awareness, aversion arises as we start judging.
When we forget compassion, ignorance becomes indifferent to others.


It’s so simple … but a lot to take in.

There Are No Interpretations Of The Truth

There are, however, different levels of the realisation of that truth.

So what is the truth?
Truth is that which is aware.
Truth is that which recognises.
Truth is therefore already known.

The natural awareness of all beings is the one truth
that has no interpretations.

Unfortunately, we interpret and discuss and pontificate and doubt and die.
All the while, pure awareness sat and watched, while we were busy.

Transcending Traumas, Obscurations and Scars

Traumas are what happen to us. Obscurations are our holding on to those traumas. Traumas are troubling incidences that happened in the past, but they also pertain to a moment ago. Interestingly, it’s the bad things that stick with us, rather than the good things. These are life wounds, the karmic results we constantly pick at, keeping old wounds open.

We may reach a point in our spiritual development or intellectual understanding where we see the effect of a trauma and decide to drop it; being no longer bothered by it, the obscuration doesn’t have a hold on us – or rather, doesn’t seemto have a hold on us. This is where the scar comes in.

Until enlightenment, traumas leave scars – a closed wound, or a residue of a disturbance. If we can recognise this, then we can leave the scar to self-heal. The compassion aspect of this is that we can now empathise with others who feelthat they are still suffering. We may believe that we are suffering, but this is merely a scar, a memory: we suffer because we hold on the trauma, and may even cherish our suffering, or fear forgetting the past.

If we don’t recognise this scarring, we scratch at it and open the wound up again, repeating scenarios. The feeling of blame or guilt won’t heal anything; we have all done or said things in the past that caused harm in some way.

We are one huge illusory scar that can self heal if we leave it alone. If we believe we are only the body and mind, we will suffer, as anything physical or mental is temporary.

Trust in seeing, and never be traumatised again!
Never have the wool pulled over your eyes again!
As Tulku Urgyen stated, “We are free in the moment of seeing.”

Scars: get used to them.
It’s a sign of a warrior.

Our Hidden Aspect

It is sometimes difficult to discuss ‘spirit’ or pure consciousness with others as this is something they have either not have considered, or have a vague idea about. Our spiritual aspect – pure consciousness – may seem hidden from us. It’s disturbing that most of us don’t bother to appreciate consciousness; we just walk around, doing ‘stuff’ when, in truth, our reality is consciousness itself.

On a street level, we don’t bother to notice consciousness.
On a conventional, conceptual level, we can all see that weare conscious and aware.
On a philosophical level, we can infer or theorise that consciousness has to be pure and uncontaminated in order to see clearly.
On a wisdom level, this pure clarity is realised directly as being what we are.
Until this moment, our essential nature is hidden or secret.

When consciousness is aware of consciousness,
we are no longer unconscious.

An Inconvenient Truth About Convenience

Convenience: the state of being able to proceed with something without difficulty.
From Latin ‘convenientia’: assembling, agreeing.

Convenience is the modern way of life; we are fed easy ways of doing things and these conveniences become a necessity on which we rely. The more we give in to convenience, the more we become part of the machinery (and in steps the RFID micro-chip!).

Insidious ideas creep into our lives over generations, and we lose sight of normality. This is how others’ ideas become ours.

What is normal, and how do we get back to it? ‘Normal’ derives from the Latin ‘normalis’, from norma: ‘a carpenter’s square’. Deviate from a right angle and it is no longer accurate.

Likewise, the normal nature of consciousness is pure and uncontaminated. Deviate from that and it becomes impure and contaminated. We are pure perception, pure consciousness, clear vision. When this pure consciousness is attracted to something, it loses sight of its normal state.

We are fed ideas so that our minds have become a convenience store, full of easy, pre-prepared concepts without substance.

We do not need others to run our life for their convenience: we have the natural ability to know what is beneficial and what is not, for our human and spiritual welfare.

The result of ignorance is confusion.
In essence, we have never been confused:
we just ignored our knowing.

Psychological Viruses

We are attacked daily by a virus of concepts and chemicals that controls our way of life, so we need antibodies to counter the harm, confusion and suffering caused by this.

Antibodies recognise alien bacteria, viruses and foreign substances – in this case, concepts. The antibody to concepts is recognition.

We have the natural ability to re-cognise, because we already know but have put this knowingness to one side. This knowingness is pure consciousness which was in charge of our minds until we relinquished our authority to others. All media in this samsaric world (samsara – the vicious cycle of existence) is like a virus that infects our mind – and therefore our immune system: we become stressed and run down. Unfortunately, it is we who spread these viruses to others, with our opinions gleaned from doubtful sources.

Our minds need a spring clean! That is the purpose of meditation. It unwinds all the ideas that cling to one another, forming the assemblage that we call ‘me’ and my view of life.

We are natural, pure clarity – the jewel in the mud of concepts. Realise that the mud has no effect on this jewel: the mud merely covers and disguises it. We need wash it off – and that is the purpose of meditation. Once it is clean, just let it shine!

We recognise by remembering. Reading or hearing beneficial words that we respect injects a clarity virus into our mind to sustain our perseverance. We then know why to meditate twice a day, on the doctor’s advice! Doctor: Latin docere ‘to teach’.

In meditation, we are immune to influences.
We are then ready for service.

Immune: protected, not affected or influenced by something.

Let’s hope this goes viral!

The ‘Very Advanced’ Practice Of One Taste

😀 😀 😀

I don’t know about you, but I was led to believe that “one taste” meant that a realised person had acquired supernatural powers and so, for them, there would be no difference between eating glass or cheese. I thought that meant that both could be easily digested because the practitioner realised the illusion of all things. A slight misunderstanding on my part … but one that was never demystified. For me, this misunderstanding was attached to everything Tibetan, and so it was all a mystery (and a bit of a carrot in front of the donkey!).

The ‘very advanced’ practice of one taste is simple.

In the very moment of tasting, seeing, smelling, touching, hearing, there is one pure experience of … just experiencing. There is no me (experiencer) and no memory or judgement (thing experienced). There is just experience. In that moment, one is not bothered whether something is hot or cold, sweet or sour: there is just taste before any personal preference, which comes a milli-moment later.

The very moment after pure experience, we then give a name to that experience – which is pragmatic, as we don’t need to swallow glass, and shouldn’t put cheese where a window should be.

Of course, if we see ever a miracle that has meaning, then we will know something special has happened. Until then, rely on common sense, insight and clarity. Life is too short to wait around for mysteries, beliefs and fantasies to appear.

And there we have it: all appearances are an illusion.

There Is Nothing Wrong With Having Thoughts

There is nothing wrong with having thoughts.
It is clinging to those thoughts that creates a fixed personality
that controls our behaviour – and our life.

Life then become one long repetition.
Being fresh within any situation bring new inspiration.
Letting go of fixations brings a clear view.

Oneness Isn’t Twoness

Oneness is non-dual realisation.
Twoness is dual realisation.

When we relate,
that is duality.

When there is no relating,
that is non-duality.

When there is I,
there is you.

When there is no I,
there is only you.

Love is like that.

The word ‘oneness’ may confuse us: at the lower levels, negative emotions and wisdom are separate whereas, at the highest level, negative emotions and wisdom are one and the same. By virtue of one, the other is known, spontaneously.

Spiritual Teaching Should Be Free

Spiritual teachings are telling us what we already are.
Why do we have to pay to be told what we are?

The whole point of freedom is being unbound.

Is ‘Truth’ Just Another Idea?

Truth is not a mental construct as truth can never change.

All things and ideas are changeable because they are constructs, made from parts that come together by causes and conditions, and so they don’t have any inherent nature of their own.

So what is left?
Who asks the question?
It is our mind that asks questions, but who or what is aware of these questions?

Without consciousness, no question can be asked and no answer can be received.

So is consciousness the truth?
Consciousness is the faculty of perception, memory and judgement.
Its true nature, however, is empty receptivity because, before the faculty of perception, memory and judgement, there is pure awareness, empty of bias or contamination.
The ethereal clean slate!

We can only read words on paper by virtue of the clarity of the clean page on which they are written. If we merely write over a contaminated page, it will be difficult to see clearly.

Our pure state is the clarity of seeing.
That is the ultimate truth.
That unchanging spirit nature cannot be observed, but only realised in pure experience.

It is because of this that everything may be known.
It is knowingness, before anything is known.

It is home.
Home is a clear page.
Happy now.

The only way to know the truth is to suck it and see!

The Age Of Fast Spiritual Progress

“But the world is in such a mess!”

The Dzogchen teachings are for this period in human history because they are the direct instruction into the nature of mind, the nature of reality. At this time, suffering is obvious, chaos is obvious and manipulation is obvious. The odds are stacked against humanity because of the influence of the power-crazies. It’s so clear that it’s wonderful; our ‘enemy’ is our best teacher.

In the face of adversity, spiritual progress is not concerned with competitiveness. It’s to do with realising the nature of ourmind, the recognition of ourtrue reality – consciousness.

When existence becomes pleasant,
we won’t bother to transcend.

Religion is a double-edged sword because, in looking for inner peace,
we either sit in the duality of inner stillness,
or there is merely non-dual stillness.
We have to know the difference.

Realisation is the recognition of pure consciousness
and whatever obscures this.

It is not the time to mess around!

The Very Delicate Matter of Inspiration

Inspiration is connection: “Eureka! I found it!” We recognise. The moment we connect, we have arrived, and there is no longer a need to hold on to whatever or whoever inspired us. We are free.

If we hold on, we project and obsess, becoming attracted to the form that becomes a belief – and belief is a powerful prison. We are imposing an idea on our creation, and this binds us.

In deity practice – which is known as Guru Yoga, and regarded as the path of devotion – the visualisation practice is completed by dissolving everything.

If we are preoccupied by holding on to the deity visualisation or the lama/teacher, we can lose original insight. Devotion is deep appreciation: the moment we appreciate, the effect has taken place and the connection is made. The effect is empty cognisance, an clear conduit where everything passes through. If we hold on to the connection, the connection becomes sticky and attracts fluffblocking the conduit! 😀

When we are told to see the lama/teacher as a Buddha, it is we who are projecting this idea. This defers the realisation that we, too, are Buddha nature.

Let it be.
There’s another coming up behind!

Words Are Not The Truth

Words are not the truth.
Wordless, truth is the origin of all.
Words create all things.
Wordless is pure consciousness.
Words see manifestations.
Wordless realises emptiness.

“In the beginning was the word.”
The beginning of creation, yes.
Creation is not a manifestation of truth:
it is the manifestation of desire.

Don’t be spell bound by words:
realise their meaning.
Before words is consciousness.
The truth is not ancient wisdom.
The truth is now, as it was then.

We Go Through Hell To Get To Heaven

We go through hell to get to heaven,
while hell never truly existed.

We live in a manufactured reality
where karma deceives consciousness.

We have to pass through this hell,
which is full of fools and sages from whom we can learn.

“This hell isn’t my fault!”
We are all part of the karmic collective that misunderstands reality.

If a thing is real, it can never not be real.
Whatever is real has to be constant.
Hell isn’t.

Life, though seeming real, is an illusion:
the only reality is pure consciousness.

FOMO – Fear Of Missing Out

We all want to be ‘where it’s at’, don’t we? To be in the inner circle. The truth is – we are already where it’s at! We are the inner circle of no circumference; pure consciousness, without exclusions.

The desire to be in the know can haunt us, and rule our entire lives. Becoming obsessed about missing out could lead to depression or even suicidal feelings. C.S Lewis wrote about the inner circle, and came to a wonderful conclusion – that when we pay attention to whatever we are doing, we become the inner circle – and this has guided me my entire life because it reflects the Buddha’s words, “Do not take my word for it; test it for yourself”.

We can spend decades going to retreats and teachings in the fear of missing out, hoping “Maybe this time, they’ll tell us the secret”, but that never materialises so we keep going back, just in case.

Fearing missing out, we never get to trust what we actually experience. We become reliant, and then impose the teachings onto situations instead. The teachings may make us feel better, but we are vulnerable when we deal with outsiders because we’re limited to one particular tradition and haven’t realised the true essence of all sentient beings. We may shun others’ views and stay within our group, continuing to be caught up in the form.

Empathy is the ability to understand how another feels. When I meet a ‘spiritual’ person who can actually do that, I’ll let you know 😀 We live in a world of strife, so there are no expectations to get on with one another; we share a few moments, and move on.

Realising we are what we seek and we are where its at – the inner centre of pure consciousness – we no longer chase after others’ exclusive limitations. Inner circles do exist in organisations: they are not evil, but the desire to be in the inner circle can create problems with confidence and progress. We just have to leave others to get on with it.

On our journey to realisation, we can rub shoulders for a while and then move on. We learn sequentially through genuine, everyday experiences and interactions. Nobody can do this for us, not even a Buddha. Our reactions to this life are our root teacher, as life is with us at every moment.

It’s quite simple: we merely have to pay attention to what weare doing. If we have a problem, welook more closely. If we are bored,welook more closely. In this way, confidence grows … and attracts! We no longer have to wonder where the inner circle is. 😀 We (consciousness) are in the zone!

When we stop running after others,
we will find inner peace
in the inner circle of inner consciousness.

It’s such a relief!




Excerpts from C. S. Lewis’s essay is entitled “The Inner Ring”. It describes our common desire to be accepted within the ‘inner ring’ of whatever group matters to us at the time.

To feel ‘excluded’ or ‘out of it’ is miserable. yet the desire to be ‘in’ can make you say things you would not otherwise say or not say things you should say. This desire to be on the inside of whatever group you aspire to join can affect your relationships at work, in the community, and in the church.

“I am not going to say that the existence of Inner Rings is an evil. It is certainly unavoidable. but the desire which draws us to Inner Rings is another matter. A thing may be morally neutral and yet the desire for that thing may be dangerous… “As long as you are governed by that desire, you will never get what you want. You are trying to peel an onion: if you succeed there will be nothing left. Until you conquer the fear of being an outsider, an outsider you will remain.”

“The quest of the Inner Ring will break your hearts unless you break it. But if you break it, a surprising result will follow. If in your working hours you make the work your end, you will presently find yourself all unawares inside the only circle in your profession that really matters. You will be one of the sound craftsmen, and the other sound craftsmen will know it. “

Realising Spirit

Our problem is not, not connecting to spirit.
Our problem is spirit attaching itself to mental activity.

Some call our essential nature ‘spirit’, higher self, pure consciousness or God. This not only implies that there is something to attain, but we have created a duality; there is a suggestion that we are not there yet.

This ‘spirit’ is what we already are: it is seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching via the senses, right now.

But this spirit is so attached to seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching – and the thoughts about seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching – that it has lost sight of its original, essential nature.

It’s quite simple.
We have merely confounded ourselves.

It Is Imperative That We Wake Up…
and recognise the illusions

The DNA of the mind; the genetic information and characteristics – physical or mental – that are passed from one generation to another.

How easily we conform to being manipulated, and then pass this behaviour on to others.

The Milgram experiment shows how people, against their better judgement, obey someone in a white coat who instructs them to inflict electrical shocks on another person. This was a staged experiment using actors; an unsuspecting participant was told to inflict pain on an unseen individual as a ‘punishment’ for an incorrect answer to a question. No pain was actually caused, but the person who pushed the switch did not know this – and despite believing that they were causing pain, people still complied with the commands they were given.

The video below shows how this procedure is applied today with the objective of creating compliance to those in uniform who use humiliation and intimidation. This compliance is passed on by us as we are led to believe and obey – often against our better judgement.

When we conform to be uniformed, we consent to losing our freedom under the guise of there being danger and evil lurking everywhere. It is us who give the authority to the ‘authorities’: this is obedience training, just like Pavlov’s dogs.


If we want to change the world for the better, then we have to start now. We must first look deep within our own mind to see what drives it, and then do what we can to be of benefit to the outer world.

When We Know, Then We Cannot Not Know

If we think that things just happen,
then we will remain deluded.

When we know that there is a cause for everything,
then we will recognise and be prepared.

When Simplicity Becomes Complexity

Ultimately, truth is incomprehensible
because it is non-dual experience.

Comprehension comes afterwards,
when truth is realised.

Words are then sought
to describe the inexpressible.

Ultimate truth is simplicity itself. To the uninitiated, this seems incomprehensible, and thus truth appears complex and mysterious.

We hear or read words, but they can become meaningless and so, more words are sought, while the ultimate truth remains incomprehensible because it is beyond understanding, being non-dual experience. As we are not convinced about our true reality, the ‘entertainment officers’ create more words and rituals for us to follow.

At the heart of all spiritual traditions is resting within the pure stillness of silent awareness which is totally empty, free of contrivances. We cannot get simpler than emptiness.

“That sounds boring!” And therein lies the problem: we are not convinced, and so we create complexity and philosophical discussion.

“Why are we so confused?” Because we were born on to a conveyor belt of programming, and our labour is needed in order to keep the conveyor belt moving. Instead of realising that we are enlightened beings, we engage in trivial pursuits.

“But I have to earn a living!” Yes, but be aware that we may be engaged in upgrading our own conveyor belt. Step off the conveyor belt today, and take a rest.

The Two Features of Thoughts

Most people identify with their thoughts to such an extent that they believe they are the accumulation of all their thoughts, and are proud of this. In reality, thoughts are merely mental programming that has been acquired since birth.

When we start to investigate the nature of thoughts and consciousness, we need to analyse and then rest though meditation: we focus on the breath (or a mantra) to cut through these thoughts and then come to stillness.

If we have been instructed and trained in recognising the nature of consciousness – which is the realisation of pure emptiness – then, when one of the negative emotions occurs, emptiness and wisdom arise simultaneously, and the emotional thoughts dissolve immediately.

It is said that the more emotions and thoughts, the more the emptiness: thoughts no longer hinder, as they have become an aid in the moment of recognition.

A problem arises when we become stuck in the beginners’ stage, continuing to think that thoughts are the problem and that we mustn’t have them. Thoughts are not the problem: holding on to thoughts is the problem. There comes a stage when we have to drop the method, or the method becomes a hinderance.

However, as Chogyam Trungpa said, “Never forget the beginner stage.” We have to be honest about what we are experiencing, rather than assuming that we have arrived. We need to go back to basics, constantly.

Unity Does Not Mean Uniformity

We can have unity in diversity.

We are all one common element
– and that is pure consciousness –
but we are unique in methods of realisation and expression.

There is oneness in realisation,
but our paths are not the same.
This is why we work in harmony, rather than in unison.

Our path is our own conventional confusion,
but our destination is the same:
the ultimate realisation of pure consciousness.

A group may be of benefit for a while.
Then, we are alone … all one.

We All Need A Feeling Of Success

Life has become so diverse that we no longer have time to become an expert, or feel satisfied. We look at the world and it’s confused, and always seems to need an upgrade! We think that we have to start at the bottom and work our way up in order to be successful or to understand something. Not so; we can start at the top and know success in one instant.

In the Dzogchen tradition of spirituality, we are introduced to the ultimate truth, and life becomes fruitful and successful as we now know what it’s all about, and everything we do has a purpose. The ultimate truth isn’t something we have to work at because the ultimate truth is the reality of our very own nature.

Dzogchen is Tibetan for the direct realisation of ultimate reality of empty cognisance. This is not a practice: it’s what we are. It is consciousness that recognises that, in reality, there is nothing other than conscious awareness. That isthe reality. It doesn’t matter what happens in our life, this ultimate consciousness is always present.

The feeling of success is that we now know and see. We see what others do not: they may have money, power, intellect, and a lofty view of themselves, but their consciousness is lost in favour of their acquisitions. We see that their happiness is reliant on conditions, and for them, we have compassion: for those who are unhappy, we have empathy.

All the suffering we have ever experienced adds to our ability to be empathetic and compassionate because we know how it feels. Do you see how powerful you are? We no longer react in the same way as others, and all we have to do is remember our ultimate reality of empty cognisance.

With this understanding comes genuine confidence and self appreciation. This isn’t being proud of oneself: we merely appreciate our bundle of confusion and inadequacy … I just think, “Well, it’s not much to hold onto anyway!” 😀

The point of meditation is that we become more familiar with this natural emptiness. Thoughts and emotions seem to get worse, but the truth is that we are noticing more.

Thoughts and wisdom arise simultaneously:
we are therefore free in the moment of seeing.

That is the real success, and our life has become worthwhile.

What is Consciousness And What is Spirituality ?

The moment we became confused

If we do not recognise consciousness itself, but only whatever consciousness perceives, then we cannot realise that which is beyond consciousness.

Consciousness has two aspects; it is the facility to perceive, and it is the pure ability of perception itself. There doesn’t seem to be a word for the latter, unless we use the term ‘spirit’ – the non-physical and non-mental aspect of being. In Buddhism, this is called the Kayas. This spirit has three qualities of emptiness, cognisance and compassion = Dharmakaya, Sambhogakaya and Nirmanakaya.

The essential nature of pure perception is pure consciousness; empty, pure, uncontaminated space. That is our unchanging reality.

When people talk about ‘my spirit’ or ‘my higher self’, they are creating and maintaining a duality. We are pure consciousness or pure spirit … now!

Others’ Spiritual Ways

It’s a touchy subject, isn’t it?

Meeting others on spiritual paths can be – and often is – a catalyst for all our feelings and emotions. They make us a little crazy, because they seem a little crazy, right? In meeting ordinary people, the atmosphere is less charged, but ‘spiritual’ people often appear to act oddly. This is because we hold on to whatever we believe is precious, and fear our view being contaminated by the expression of others. One who is a genuine practician is naturally empathetic and generous.

If all we do is repeat the same words from the same books and agree on the same meaning, then all seems well – but the moment we see the meaning slightly differently, communication has to stop.

To be honest, I have to say to myself, “Leave them alone!” every day 😀 The words of the Buddha come to mind; “Do good, do no harm, tame the mind.” Damn! Can I at least punch a pillow? I chant OM MANI PEME HUM mentally, very quickly, to crowd out the frustration, and blot out my reactions. 😀

Our actual path to enlightenment is the recognition of our own confusion, bias and behaviour – this persona we in which we walk around – that clouds our clarity. The path is not about collecting a load of information that adds to our karma. It does not matter what we perceive in others as we all hold to a precious view of ourselves: it is the recognition of what is happening in our mind that cuts through the cloud of unknowing and separation.

If we have pride – which is a negative emotion because we feel superior to others – there is wisdom within this emotion. Whatever we feel that we know or realise, others will, at some time, reach that same realisation, and it is for that reason that wisdom-pride is known as the wisdom of equality.

The same applies to jealousy: whatever qualities we see in others which we feel we lack have to be already within us for us to be able to recognise them. For this reason, the wisdom aspect of jealousy is all-accomplishing wisdom.

Always be positive; life is too short to be otherwise!

Reincarnation; Is It Worth The Gamble?

If we see this life as the only reality, then it doesn’t matter what we do as there are no long term consequences, unless we belong to an organisation or belief system, where we play a part in its continuity. But for us, personally, it’s the end; we just played our part, a bit like ants.

If, however, rebirth is the reality, then our intentions change, as there is a reason for our inclinations.

This will blow your mind! 😀

In the reality of reincarnation, we have had infinite rebirths: every sentient being has been our mother, and we have suffered every possible disease, given birth to a baboon, been the opposite gender, murdered everyone, had our udders milked on a distant planet … the list is infinite. We have done and been everything, and now we are here – and we shouldn’t take for granted what our next incarnation will be.

It is said that, after death when we do not have a body, our karmic wind will take us where our inclinations direct, so whatever we do now creates conditions, not only for the next moment but also for the next incarnation. Mentally, we are not all the same; some people lack empathy and cannot love, thinking only of themselves or their ‘organisation’.

We have a precious opportunity to bring an end to these futile activities which only create suffering. We have the potential to realise our true nature. We can either pave the way to a higher rebirth that is more conducive to enlightenment, or we can delay this possibility.

It’s not difficult to realise the truth, and face in the right direction: we merely have to stop chasing phantoms. When we truly consider reincarnation, everything makes sense and our direction becomes clear. There is real purpose, and life is no longer a gamble.

In reality, there is no path.

For those who do not care, there is no path
as they believe in everything they see.

For those who are realised, there is no path
as the path was our confusion and, through seeing, our confusion never existed
