MESSAGE FROM WAYNE
Hello my loves,

Thirty-five years ago today I rose out of a drunken stupor a changed man. The obsession to drink and use drugs to unhealthy excess was suddenly and inexplicably gone. It was an undesired and unwanted change and I was very much afraid. As the fog that I had been living in for 19 years lifted I was faced with the cold fact that the transformation I was experiencing was not of my doing. Try as I might to claim it, I could not deny that some force greater than my egoic self had done this to me without my permission. This crack in the veneer of my claim of self-will set me on a path to discover the nature of this force.

Guided by the wisdom of other recovering alcoholics I was introduced to the notion of personal powerlessness and the need for a recognition of power greater than myself. Thus began the journey that was to lead me after two years to the feet of my guru, Ramesh Balsekar. In Ramesh I found a perfect example of non-volitional living. He was a man very much of the world, at peace and living in total harmony with What Is. Our lives became woven together and I was blessed to be of service to him and the Teaching he was carrying forward.

Today I celebrate the miracles that abound around us, the richness of change and the infinite possibilities that make life so exciting and powerful. The Living Teaching of Advaita is but a shallow attempt to carry the message of this Grace.

May it find you now!

With much love,
Wayne

A LIVING GEM FROM RAMESH (NEVER BEFORE BEEN PUBLISHED)
Whatever is observed is appearance, its observer is the counterpart, both being objects as dual aspects of manifesting consciousness, but both are the noumenal subject when unmanifested.

Noumenon is consciousness, phenomenon an appearance in consciousness.  Manifested we are appearance, unmanifested we are noumenon.

Knowing that the observer and the observed have no existence, conceptual in any case, apart from each other, and knowing that all there is, is the subjective functioning of observing, divided mind is reunited in its wholeness and holiness.

WORDS FROM THE HEART


Hi Wayne, 

 I glimpsed it again last night. What makes me do what I do is life itself. And I am life. And it happens in me, and through me and as me. And you and everyone else are it too. And I suddenly thought of the name of the teaching “non duality”. And it made sense. And I was a little dumbfounded by all the distractions from that. And it was so beautiful, and loving and close and so there. And now, as I write to you, back under the divine hypnosis as dear Ramesh used to say, I feel so blessed that God gave me such a beautiful reassurance that I’m not separate from him. And I can’t believe how lucky I was to meet you at Ramesh’s. It hasn’t always felt lucky cause it’s been so confronting, but by the grace of God I saw my self centeredness in all its glory two days ago, in a way I had never seen it before.

Anyway I am rambling.
I love you and I miss you. 🙏

M.
