IMPORTANT CALENDAR UPDATE
 
Wayne is safely home and in self-quarantine after his overseas Talks, with the exception of Madrid, were canceled due to the coronavirus restrictions.  Starting this Saturday, March 21st, Wayne will be live-streaming his Talks on the advaita.org website see dates and times here.  No in-home visitors to Wayne's home can be accommodated at the moment. Hopefully, this will change soon.
 
To ask questions during the live webcast, please register here (it's free and you only need to do it once) so you can then log in.  You may still watch the live stream without logging in but you won't be able to join the conversation with your written questions.

 
 
MESSAGE FROM WAYNE

Hello my loves!
----
Your New Age
Is neither new
Nor will it last an age.

You ride a pendulum
On a clock wound
To run for eternity.

Your despair has
Today turned to hope.
Tomorrow it will
Turn back again.

The walls of oppression
You tear down here
Will be rebuilt
There.

The meek shall
Inherit the earth
Then the clever ones
Will take it back from them.

The torture chamber
Will empty
And refill.

A disease will
Be conquered
And a new one will
Appear to takes its place.

This strikes you
As a bleak vision
But Ram Tzu knows this…

It is your hope for a better future
That keeps you in chains today.

----

What Ram Tzu didn't say.... but I will...is that the fear of a worse future also keeps you in chains today.

Fear is an infectious disease that robs you of life. It shrinks your reality to a single focus. A horrific vision of a future that may or may not come into being. In its most virulent form it transfers rapidly from person to person, community to community and continent to continent. People begin eyeing each other with suspicion and the authorities take it as an opportunity to be even more authoritarian.

This Living Teaching of Advaita encourages you to take a deep breath and relax for a moment...if you can. Look around. A million things are happening this very instant  that have nothing to do with the thing you fear. Life is unfolding wherever you look. The birds, the clouds, the wind moving the trees, the barking dogs. Even the sirens and the worried looks on the faces of passersby are all part of this huge and spacious movement of living. In a moment of Grace you see the wonderful, ridiculous wholeness...the sublime perfection of it all.

May it infect you now!

With much love,
Wayne

A LIVING GEM FROM RAMESH (NEVER BEFORE BEEN PUBLISHED)
The notion of bondage depends on the essential condition of separation, the illusion of which is due to the apparent presence of objects whose cognizer is seen as their supposed subject.  The fact of the matter is that the supposed subject is itself an object whose cognizer is nothing other than sentience which is the nature of cognition.  In other words, cognizer and the cognized together form the inseparable process of subjective functioning.

WORDS FROM THE HEART


Thank you for the magic and the tragic

Thank you for the tall and the small

Thank you for the good and the food

Thank you for the bad and the mad

Thank you for everything and nothing
