MESSAGE FROM WAYNE
Hello my loves,

What amazingly interesting times we find ourselves in! All our carefully laid plans gone down the drain! Damn! 

If you are cloistered in a monastery somewhere or are living in a remote cave life probably isn't revealing itself to be the unpredictable mystery it is and always has been. The lulling sense of complacency that comes with regular repetitions of a pattern will remain in place for you. But for the rest of the world things have been shaken up.

Most humans do not like their world turned upside down. It breeds fear and insecurity. The panicked buying of essential(?) goods and the overwhelming wave of negatively speculative news is clear evidence of this. But we are at root multi-dimensional creatures and so out of the chaos emerge heart-stopping displays of generosity and kindness. Out of enforced physical isolation come creative strategies for connection. Out of solitude comes the opportunity for a new way of looking at ourselves and our world.

For the Living Teaching of Advaita the current circumstances have bred a new way for us to come together and explore. I am very excited by this new way for us to be connected. The resonance in the Talks we have been doing four days a week through the advaita.org website and ZOOM is incredibly strong. There is a vitality and unity that transcends our physical separation. All that has been lacking is a way for those people who do not speak English to connect to the Teaching. To remedy this we are going to try conducting one of the Talks each week with Russian translation, one with French translation and one with Spanish translation. We will see how it goes. 

Life is uncertain. It always has been and by it's very nature, always will be. In recognizing the essential Truth of What IS there is peace and harmony regardless of circumstance.

May it find you now.

With much love,
Wayne

A LIVING GEM FROM RAMESH (NEVER BEFORE BEEN PUBLISHED)
Bondage" is in fact nothing more than attachment to an imaginary "will" (or volition) which is the exercise of independent choice by a supposed entity with which what-we-are is identified, which is called by a certain name and which it regards as "me".  But the "me" is merely an objectivization which cannot by itself do anything at all just as a piece of mechanism cannot act by itself autonomously.  This absurd notion has been made possible by the assumption of an untraceable "entity" which takes charge of this mechanism.  The result is conflict - experienced as suffering - based entirely on the mistaken need to act independently, volitionally.  The in-seeing of this rather obvious position is awakening to enlightenment.

WORDS FROM THE HEART


I just wanted to express a little bit of appreciation for for this time that we're all having with you on Zoom. It's so unique. When you came back from Europe, and started the first one of these online meetings on March 21, a lot of us have been in every one. The world has basically stopped or slowed incredibly down during this time, and the regularity of this time with you is like a retreat. It's given an opportunity for the pointers to really take root and deepen. This has been like a monastery situation for me and it's been absolutely amazing. I just want to thank you and everybody else who's been participating online for contributing to the richness of this time.

B.
