MESSAGE FROM WAYNE

Hello my loves!

All humans develop a sense of being independent entities at around the age of 2 years old. This sense (though demonstrably false) attaches to the recognition that we are separate from the objects around us. So we feel separate and independent! From there sprouts the seed of isolation and suffering.

But we are not disconnected. We have never been disconnected. We are all aspects of the same Source. It is the great Reality. It is the fundemental Truth that lies at the root of us. Religions often use the term "soul" to point to this eternal nature of our being. 

When we are able to pause and look into ourselves we may recognize that essential aspect of ourselves...our soul...that true and unmoving quality that was there before we were born and will be there after we die.

The quest of the seeker is to know his own soul. It is to recognize the fundamental nature of who they are. How this happens in each person is quite variable. But to some degree the quest to know oneself and to come to peace with who and what we are is the ultimate journey.

May it find you now!

With love,
Wayne

SPECIAL BOOK DISCOUNT!!

NUGGETS of WISDOM

by Ramesh S. Balsekar

It is everyone's experience that the basis of daily living is facing life from moment to moment, necessarily accepting whatever the moment brings - sometimes pain, sometimes pleasure. The interconnected opposites of pain and pleasure, along with the opposites of every conceivable kind, beginning with male and female, form the very basis of life and living; and, therefore, it is impossible to separate one from the other. What the human being wants is one and not the other - pleasure and not the pain. And this pursuit of one as against the other is the main cause of why religion flourishes, various god-men flourish, promising the impossible and leading to frustration.

A LIVING GEM FROM RAMESH (NEVER BEFORE BEEN PUBLISHED)
The point that is not easily comprehended is the fact that “pure” awareness, as subjectivity cannot be aware of itself.  What is to be understood is that pure awareness, non-objective awareness, is non-awareness; otherwise, if it implies self-awareness, it means awareness of an objective “self”.  What-I-am cannot be aware because if I am aware of what I am, then what I am becomes the object of a subject that is aware of an object, and so on ad infinitum in a perpetual regression.  This means, therefore, that it is quite impossible to be aware (or conscious) of what is being aware (or conscious), that there cannot be any objective “thing” that is aware (or conscious): being aware (or conscious) as such cannot have any objective existence, only a subjective functioning.

WORDS FROM THE HEART


This teaching is leaving me without handles.......

there is no longer a God to pray to, nor a hope to hold on to .... there is only what is it? And what is that?. I don't know who I am, I just know that I exist. But even those thoughts that tell me that I exist are not mine ... I thought I knew, but I don't know anything. I don't even know who is the one who thinks ... Even so, today life is beautiful, with her tragedies, dramas and joys....... I thought I knew, but I don't know anything.

I never thought something like this would happen to me........
I love you Wayne, I love you so much. Thank you so much

J
