MESSAGE FROM WAYNE

Hello My Loves,

To seek pleasure and avoid pain is the most natural of human desires. But when this desire is hijacked by the false sense of authorship (ego) suffering inevitably follows.

The suffering results from the sense that pain should not exist. Therefore if it does exist it is evidence of a failure on your part. Even if the pain is caused by the actions of another, the sense arises that you should have somehow prevented it from happening. 

All this leads to the fantasy that when enlightenment is attained all pain will cease. 

The intuitive recognition that pain is an integral part of life does not eliminate the pain but it does keep it from exploding into suffering. The Living Teaching of Advaita encourages looking into the essence of your self. It asks the question, are you an independent being? Sometimes the intuitive recognition comes and there is revealed a type of Peace that life's pains cannot alter.

May it find you now!

With much love,
Wayne

HELLO MY LOVES - 10 Years of writings to seekers of Truth

WAYNE LIQUORMAN

Love

Wisdom

Passion

In these letters written between 2004 and 2013 by Wayne Liquorman, we gain a rare glimpse into the heart and mind of a modern Advaita sage. They document his travels, his relationship with Ramesh Balsekar, his reactions to current events, and answers to questions from spiritual seekers. Together they form an affecting journal of births and deaths, of Wayne’s family and of the larger family of seekers that has gathered around him, as well as the development of his own unique Living Teaching of Advaita.

A LIVING GEM FROM RAMESH (NEVER BEFORE BEEN PUBLISHED)

All that any scriptures could mean to say, and all that any Guru can say, is that the listener as an individual entity does not exist.  If this is firmly accepted with utter conviction, then the understanding happens to be impersonal and noumenal without any individual comprehender.  Such understanding is indeed enlightenment.

WORDS FROM THE HEART


The fog is rolling in now
Out my window...beautiful
A magic pill is what I wish
To encapsulate this understanding 
Of what IS
Prior to the big experiences 
Love
Witnessing 
Unity
I am
Lies peace
Simple equanimity in pleasure and pain 
Amazing in its matter of factness
Extraordinary in it’s ordinariness 
With no control to hold it
After ten days
It may slip through my fingers 
In the next moment
like before 
Or it may be everlasting
Or perhaps even in its slipping it is everlasting
The fog is rolling out now 
Out my window
More ordinary 
Equally real
A complete circle In the time it takes 
To put these words down
J.
