Wisdom is Freedom and ignorance is bondage.
If you believe you are bound, then you are bound. If you know you are Free, then you are Free, that is all there is to it.
To know the Truth about oneself and realize that me, myself and 'I' is not a finite self limited to the body, but in fact consciousness itself is Freedom
Removing ignorance covering up this simple Truth about one own everyday self is called Freedom from all bondage. Just this and nothing else.
If you have any questions, call. Tel: 928-282-6573 M.S.T.

The Guru cannot give you anything new, which you don’t have already.
Removal of the notion that we have not realised the Self is all that is required.
We are always the Self, only we don’t realise it.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Welcome to here and now you are that!
I am only pointing to consciousness which is my true nature and your true nature, therefore consciousness is the Oneness common to all
and always undeniably experienced directly by everybody, who is not aware of himself? Everybody knows it so well already as 'I' am.

You can not negate that knowing that you are, 'I' am is certain.
This unseen presence of consciousness is at once oneself and the Infinite Self.

Paradoxically never far away but closer than close, it is ever present as that 'I' am that 'I' am. 
You are that 'I' am. In other words, God, He, the Self, Reality, the Oneness and one's eternal true nature is 'I' am.

Unless you understand that the state of being conscious or being aware is the very consciousness itself Ramana Maharshi,
Nisargadatta Maharaj and so many others have been pointing to all along as 'I' am and the Reality or the Self, you will keep on missing it.

Never lost but closer than close to oneself, always present as 'I' am. Knowing that you are present or this consciousness is never far away.
You are it, this very moment. Consciousness is that 'I' am you have always known so well as your very own common everyday self.
Understanding this, is Freedom. Not becoming or achieving anything new.

Is there anyone who is not aware of himself?
Each one knows, but yet does not know the Self. A strange paradox!

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

If you were told to get rid of yourself in order to find yourself. Know the Truth, you were lied to.
For here and now you yourself, just as you are right now, plain, common and ordinary
always have been and are the real Self you have been looking for all along.

You are always the Self, you simply don't realize it. Consciousness is very subtle.
Have a look at your own affectionate being-ness or 'I' am-ness right now and see this for yourself.
Are you un-conscious or are you conscious? If you are aware of being yourself right now, that is the Self or consciousness.

Realize that everyday 'I' wakes up to a dream of consciousness.
Who is 'I' really? Who is 'I' real identity, do you know your own self? Who am 'I'?

Don't you know? Know yourself and if you know yourself, you then know the Kingdom of God.
The Truth is very easy 'I' is God itself, the One without two! 'I' is the Real self, the Real 'I' and the only Reality.
Closer to you than your own breath, the 'I' is the Infinite Self itself. Everybody says 'I', everybody knows 'I' am.

To the ignorant the 'I' is the self limited to the body.
To the wise, the 'I' is the Infinite Self.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Thou Art That. Who is not aware of himself? Shining in plain view all along, camouflaged as 'me', 'my self' and 'I' is the Infinite Self itself.
What can be any easier than that for Freedom? Call off the Search for 'you'. Get to know yourself instead, that is all that is required.
After all, how can 'you' see, become, attain, reach or kiss yourself? The 'I' cannot see itself. It is impossible.
There are none other present but the One 'I' ever-present as yourself or 'I'.

Like a Fish always in the Ocean Searching frantically for the Ocean.
Remove ignorance and you know the Truth about who am 'I'! That is the 'trick' to Freedom.
Wisdom is Freedom. Who is 'I'? Know the Truth about 'I'! You are the One eternally Free already, only ignorance is bondage.
Therefore to understand is to remove ignorance and to remove ignorance is to remove the only obstruction from Real-'I'-zation.

The feeling that 'I' have not realised is the obstruction to realisation.
In fact it is already realised, there is nothing more to be realised.
~ Ramana Maharshi ~

The Truth is you. You are that this very moment.
Know yourself! Me, myself and 'I' is at once the eternal Infinite Self and your own common everyday self.
No duality. No separation. You are the One without a second already. You are this Oneness right now. There are no two selves.
That is the self-Real-'I'-zation. Realize that 'you' are aware and remain aware and that unchanging presence of awareness or knowing that you are
is simply common everyday wakefulness or conscious-ness and therefore this pure awareness of being oneself, alone is one's true nature. it is 'I' am.

If you turn to illusion for Freedom, you will only get illusion.
Therefore if you turn toward your own self for Reality, you will know the Reality to simply be yourself.

The Self is ever present. Each one wants to know the Self.
What kind of help does one require to know oneself?

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Say 'I' to yourself. That is IT! One cannot deny one's own self.
You are aware of being present and this undeniable present-awareness cannot be denied. 'I' is present as the Self.
No one can deny one's own self and say 'I' am not or 'I' don't exist. It is absolutely impossible to negate one's own existence.

Be content with what you are sure of. And the only thing you can be sure of is 'I' am.
The only fact you are sure of is that you are. The only clue you have is your certainty of being.

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

Any honest pointer that is not a some self-appointed Guru that is seeking money and recognition keeping seekers on a path of ignorance,
but that in fact knows this simple Truth about himself, will only say what I am saying now. You cannot negate 'I' exist and honestly say 'I' am not.
'I' is pure being. 'I' is the Infinite Self itself. One's very own existence is the bliss of the Self. Awareness of being is bliss.

The experience is here and now. One cannot deny one’s own self.
Existence is the same as happiness and happiness is the same as being. Why should one seek it?

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Nothing is required to know oneself. No effort is required to know that you are present right now. 'I' am is certain.
Here and now you are that. That 'I' or 'I' am you know so well already as your everyday self is the sought-after Reality.
Awareness of being is bliss. Call off the Search, who is not aware of himself? The Self is already realized, it is yourself, it is you are.

When have you ever lost yourself? Therefore why should one seek it? Aren't you aware of being present here and now?
Of course you are aware of being present as yourself. Laugh! 'I' and consciousness are One. It is only a big joke of consciousness.

Freedom is understanding that simply being oneself is the Reality. You already are the eternal Self, just playing hide and seek with itself.
When you have eternity, why not! See the dream as a dream and you have graduated from it. You have seen the false as false.
Know the real Truth about your own self and this Wisdom is to know the Oneness, the eternal or God.
Then you know you are Free.

It is true! You are awareness itself. You are the Self. You are God.
You are pure awareness. The witness of all things. You are awareness itself. Never changing.
The Self is in all beings and all being are in the Self.... Know you are Free.

~ Ashtavakra Gita~

The Self, God, the Infinite, He, the Reality or whatever name you like to use is nothing new or special that you don't already know and have already
These are all different names or fancy labels for simply describing, the natural activity of being aware or common awareness. That is all.
Therefore to know the Infinite Self or present-awareness is so easy. Are you aware? Of couse you know that you are present.
What can be any easier than that?

Just be aware that you are and remain aware. You are aware anyhow, you need not try to be.
~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

Since you are already aware i.e awareness is present as the knowing that you are present, there is no need to reach, attain or cultivate awareness.
To simply be aware naturally right now just as you are or awake or conscious is awareness itself or the Infinite Self or God.
Just because you are aware. You are this pure awareness itself. You cannot escape it. You are the Self.

You are awareness. Awareness is another name for you.
Since you are awareness, there is no need to attain or cultivate it.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Understanding this awareness, is all that is necessary for Freedom. Just this and nothing else. To simply be aware is awareness. How simple!
You don't become it, you don't attain it, you don't strive and meditate to try to reach it. Simply because you are already it.
You are unchanging awareness right now. Who said that Freedom was hard or difficult and only for the rare few?
Don't you know the real Truth about 'Enlightenment'? It is only a cosmic joke.

Want to know God, the Self, the Reality?
Are you aware? There you go sport! You know that you are. Awareness is undeniably present.
Realize that you are that unchanging presence of awareness itself or the natural state and activity of being aware.

What you need is to be aware of being aware.
~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

Always remember, don't wait to know your real self. Awareness is always undeniably present here and now as that 'I' am you know.
You cannot become awareness, you can only be what you have always been and are right now, aware or awareness is the experience itself.
Unless you understand this awareness, you will always be looking away from awareness, simply because it is so dear and so near.
Awareness is just another name for you. 'I' and awareness are One. That is all. You are that.

Only the ignorant Seekers believe that the Self or awareness is yet to be acheived, seeking a blazing light. They don't know themselves.
They foolishly believe theys have to look into silence, into keeping quiet, to repeat mantras or meditate and do yogas.
But know the Truth, that is all garbage and bondage.

We are imagining we are bound and are making various, strenuous attempts to become free.
We will be surprised that we were frantically trying to attain something, which we have always been and are.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~


No time, practice or effort is required for awareness to be.
Look at yourself only and you have found it. That is your Reality, awareness or the Self is 'I' am.
You are present, only because awareness is present. Awareness is the knowing that you are.

What have you to wait for when it is already here and now?
You have to only look & see. Look at your self, at your own being. You know that you are and you like it.

Abandon all imagining, that is all. Do not rely on time, time is death, who waits dies.
Life is now only!

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

The self-appointed Guru will sell ignorance and even sell silence to the ignorant Seeker and keep them on seeking path to nowhere.
Pointing away from the real Truth and the real Self. Many Seekers die ignorant of the Self. Some suffering in agony, never knowing true happiness.
Fearing death, screaming and kicking when the time to leave their precious body behind eventually comes upon and end it all with a last breath.
Never knowing this simple Truth about Freedom. That all along they were never bound, but in fact always been the one eternally Free.

Realize that to know your real self you won't acquire anything new. You drop ignorance only.
You will only have the peace of knowing the Truth, that Life doesn't know death but paradoxically is eternal.
Know the Truth about your real self. And knowing this Truth alone sets you Free from the long dream of ignorance.

Have a look and see. Don't wait, don't postpone if you truly desire to know this Reality for yourself.
Why wait? When the experience is here and now. Who waits dies ignorant.

lotus_red4.jpg (1041 bytes)

To be or not to be? Pick one!
Guess which one is pure awareness, the Self and the Reality.

You can not negate that knowing that you are present because consciousness is present, 'I' am is certain and needs no proof.
To be conscious is consciousness, i.e. wakefulness and the undeniable knowing that you are present right here and now or present awareness.

Realize that whenever you hear the words pure awareness, consciousness, present-awareness, the Self, 'I' am-ness, God, He, Reality etc.
These are all names for the natural state of being conscious. To simply be awake from sleep is to be conscious and that is pure awareness of being.

The natural activity of being conscious and therefore aware of being present as oneself or present-awareness common to all, is the experience itself.

Now you know the simple Truth, the 'trick' to Freedom.
Simply that the Self, the Reality, the Atman, God was never something new, something special or spiritual apart from you.
So near and so dear. That is why many people spend year after year seeking the Self or Reality, always miss it. They are looking away from it.

Consciousness is always present first hand.

Always undeniably present here and now within your own dwelling. Look at yourself. Are you conscious?
Ignorance or not knowing this little Secret about one's real self or common true nature is the only obstacle to Freedom.
Get rid of ignorance by understanding this consciousness itself and all is well. That understanding alone is the Realization.

You wander restlessly from forest to forest
while the Reality
is within your own dwelling.
~ Kabir ~


The Self you Seek to know, is truly yourself right now, it is that 'I' am you know. To be conscious or conscious-ness is the Infinite Self itself.
This present unchanging awareness is the knowing that you are. That is what 'I' am represent. Pure awareness of being.

If you were mislead to foolishly believe that consciousness or Reality was something new,
something special or different, some special 'Enlightened' state reserved for the few that is yet to be reached through silence,
through repeating mantras, through spiritual practices, singing bajhans and yogas, through some spiritual transmission or Grace from the Sky.
Now you know the Truth! You were simply being sold illusion or water by the River by an 'Enlightened' Guru, Master, Sage, Jnani or 'Buddha'.

As long as you believe in it, illusion will entice you and embrace you and love you. That is what it does best, it will fool you. That's the Leela.
Don't be fooled by illusion. Self-appointed Gurus don't want their disciples and the earnest Seekers to know this simple Truth about themselves.
For one cannot make a living selling this simple Truth, but only charge money by selling water by the River or ignorance to others.


If you realize that to simply be conscious right now is the Reality itself or the Infinite Self and your very own existence is itself the Divine.
Next time you see a Buddha on the Road, an 'Enlightened' Sage, Guru or Jnani that stares in people's eyes, transmit Grace and talks holy.
You'll know exactly what to do, once you remove the 'veil' you are no longer fooled by ignorance and illusion, laugh and kill him.

The Buddha image of an 'Enlightened' being is itself an obstruction. 'Enlightenment' is a myth.
It is the greatest illusion. You cannot see God or the Self outside yourself, only transient illusion can appear and disappear.
No matter how enticing it may be, it is not true.
Don't worship illusion because illusion cannot give you Reality.

It is absolutely impossible!
Just like the water in a mirage cannot make you wet.

To see the dream as a dream is to know the Truth and therefore Freedom from all bondage.
The ultimate Truth is so simple that paradoxically only a rare few have seen the false as false and therefore know the Truth.
The final realization is simply that bondage and separation is only an illusion that never existed. Just like a mirage of water in a desert
or the infinite blue Sky do not exist at all. It only appears to be real, but in Reality if you investigate for yourself if it is real, it isn't there.

Reality is consciousness and consciousness is not to be achieved.
Turn within toward 'I' am for Reality, nowhere else. Look at your own self.
Outside is only a transient dream of person, place and thing. You won't find it there.
Inside is where the Reality is ever present, not residing a anything new, spiritual or special,
but ever-present as the most common undeniable experience of all, as your own everyday being.

The state of pure being which is common to all and which is always
experienced directly by everybody is one's true nature.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~


The experience is always undeniably present right here and now with you. Have a look, it is the knowing that you are.
The natural activity of being conscious and undeniably aware of being present as oneself, is the experience itself. The experience is you are.

Understanding is what is required for Freedom. Realize that you must be very wise to see the false as false.
You must have the will and heart of a Tiger, not the heart of a beggar. If your earnest desire is for the Real Self,
Reality will surely reveal itself to itself. But you must really want to know this consciousness, that is just the way it works.

Realize that the gift of Freedom cannot be bought with money, it is only and solely a Free gift from the Heart of consciousness.
As it was revealed to me and for many others, I share this with you Freely for Freedom doesn't belong to me, I cannot copyright it or sell it.
Consciousness is not a word found in a book, the word is not the actuality of being aware or conscious. Words only point to your own self anyhow.
How can anyone give you, you? Aren't you aware of being present right here and now? That is IT. You are that knowing that you are.

Seekers go from place to place in search of the Truth and yet when they hear that they are the Truth itself already,
they dismiss the Truth as being way too simple. They don't even bother to have a look and see if it is true. A strange paradox.

Sought-after Truth is found, by not seeking it.
~ Longchen-pa ~

You yourself are what you Seek to find. Call off the Search.
You are only missing it by Seeking it. The Seeker is the Sought. Say 'I' am to yourself. You are only Seeking that 'I' am you know.
Paradoxically you will only find the Truth that is sought after, the moment you stop Seeking it. Understanding this consciousness is itself Freedom.
You are this consciousness already, it is the undeniable fact of your own self and being right now. How can you attain or reach you?

You, being the Self want to know how to attain the Self.
~ Ramana Maharshi ~


People desire to see God as something new, as a person, place or thing. Seeking Gurus, Sages and Jnanis.
Most people are in love with illusion and illusion loves them back. Attachments to the beautiful dream are very strong with most.
Consciousness is not something to be acquired from others, all that is necessary is to know it present in you and recognize it as yourself, as 'I' am.

Understanding is all, there is no reaching the Self or becoming the Self or consciousness.
Consciousness is indeed always present with oneself. Who is not aware of himself? Everybody knows 'I' am.
Each one knows that they are present and therefore aware of being. That is what the Self truly is, just this common consciousness.
If you want to know what the wise knows that the ignorant Seeker doesn't know for himself, that is it.

Consciousness is indeed always with us.
Everybody knows 'I' am. No one can deny his own being.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

That is the simple Truth about Freedom. That you were never bound at any time, but already ever-Free.
Everybody knows 'I' am. Nobody becomes a great mystical being with special faculties or 'Enlightened'.
Only ignorance about this common everyday affectionate consciousness is removed.
That understanding or realization is to know one's true nature and Reality.
Then you have a good laugh at yourself, that is all.

If you have been paying someone outside yourself to sell you Freedom through books, CD's, phone consultations, Satsangs and everything else.
That is paradoxically the very reason why you were left in the dark for so long. Only ignorance can be sold and freshly acquired from others.
For you cannot buy ultimate Truth from others, simply because it is what you already are right now. It is that 'I' am you know.

Realize that no one can give you anything, which you don't have already. Consciousness is 'I' am or your own undeniable being. That is all.
All that anyone can do for you to help you end the Search, to help you get to know the real unchanging you, is to only point you to look at yourself.

The honest person who wants nothing for himself, will only say what I am saying now.
He knows you need nothing and is never tired or reminding you, to only remove ignorance about yourself with understanding.
Get to know you real self to be this common everyday presence of consciousness itself. That 'I' am you know. Nothing else is required for Freedom.

If you believe someone else's outside yourself has acquired or reached something special or holy that you don't have already.
Well you are only being fooled to be at the service of the greatest illusion of all, the 'Enlightened' Guru or 'Buddha.

Remove ignorance so that you can see. Knowing the Truth alone sets you Free.

lotus_red4.jpg (1041 bytes)

All that we need do is to remove the obstruction.
That which is eternal is not known to be so because of ignorance.
Ignorance is the obstruction. Get over this ignorance and all will be well.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

By hearing words, we take on a 'veil' of ignorance at a young age and forget who we truly are, by playing the part of a human being
and paradoxically by using words as direct pointers to our real identity, we remember who we truly are, we 'wake up' from ignorance.
The 'veil' of ignorance dissolves instantly with understanding, that is simply called Realization by getting rid of ignorance.

Know the Truth! Freedom is always here. It is not to be achieved. 
Wisdom is Freedom. Who waits for Freedom in silence dies ignorant of the Self. Understanding is all.
Just like a thorn is used to remove another thorn, remove the 'veil' of ignorance by understanding only. It is so easy.
Nothing else is required to remove the false notion of being bound.

If you are open to hear this simple message of Freeedom in your heart, then the Heart like a Lotus will open itself to itself.
Then you will understand and know the simple Truth about yourself! That there is no 'me' or a personal self present with you,
no 'ego' ever existed, but only Oneness or the Infinite Self is itself present as you or as that 'I' am you know.

Be wise because understanding is itself Freedom. Just this and nothing else is required. There is no becoming anything.
Just realize or understand this simple Truth about that 'I' am you know so well already, remove ignorance only.

Ignorance is just like a burned rope.
If you have a closer look and investigate, you will understand or realize that it is not real.
With understanding illusion dissolves. The false cannot stand up to investigation.

Illusion or what is not true will fool you, as appearing and pretending to be Reality. Know the truth! Illusion or the false cannot give you Reality.
First realize that the way you catch a liar is when you realize that what they are saying about truth is not consistent but always changing.
So if you wonder if you are seeking to know the Truth from a liar or self-appointed Guru, it is very simple to find out.
Investigate and once you realize that they are full of contradictions and confusions, you know the Truth.

Reality is not religious nor is it spiritual. So don't be fool by Buddhas. It is all a strange paradox.
As long as you are chasing 'spiritual carrots', you will be stuck to an endless Seeking path to nowhere and remain ignorant of the Self.
In fact all that is necessary to know 'Enlightenment' is to simply understand. Just this and nothing else. Remove ignorance with understanding.
There is no becoming or achieving anything new or spiritual for Freedom, just to realize or understand that simply being oneself is being the Self.

The state we call Realisation is simply being oneself.
Not knowing anything or becoming anything.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Freedom is very easy if it is what you truly want. No effort is required.
But you must be honest with yourself. Do you truly desire Freedom or do you desire illusion?
You cannot have both. Reality and love for the dream or illusion. Where your Treasure is, your heart will be also.
One is the eternal, the immortal, the imperishable and the other is always impermanent and must die. Life is short. Choose wisely.

I turned forty in 2007, I have not been a long time Seeker at all and paradoxically and best of all, I didn't sit with many Gurus.
I am no Sage, Buddha or Jnani. Simply because Freedom is not spiritual or religious at all. Just a plain and ordinary person.

If you wonder how I know what I know?
The Open Secret is simple. Understanding is Realizing. That is the only way to remove the 'veil' of ignorance.
After all, why make any effort to try to reach or become, what you have always been and are?

Consciousness i.e. the eternal Self or Reality is paradoxically found,
the very moment you stop Seeking it.

That is the close guarded Secret that paradoxically 'Buddhas' and 'Enlightened' Gurus don't want you to know about Freedom.
There is no becoming consciousness at all, simply because you are already that right now. You are undeniably conscious and aware of being.
Therefore understanding this consciousness is very easy, no time or effort is required. Never far away, just look at yourself and you have found it.

If you don't understand this consciousness itself, then you are in bondage.
When you will understand what this is, then that is liberation. Paradoxically, you will realize that you are already liberated.

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

People tell me how long they have been on a Seeking path, some for thirty years, forty years and even longer.
Paradoxically most people that have been going from holy Guru to holy Guru, from Sage to Sage and Jnani to Jnani don't want to understand.

They desire to see this consciousness as something new, as something special or spiritual, as a blazing light. As a religious event or experience.
Reading religious and spiritual books filled with extra-ordinary stories of 'Enlightenment' from great Sages, Gurus and Jnanis
that they have been hypnotized with illusion and fantasy, they seemingly lost touch with the ordinary and Reality.

The Truth will never be what these spiritual Seekers wish it to be. The Self is nothing special or different than simply being oneself naturally.
The Truth is you are! The ultimate Truth is that 'I' am you have always known yourself to be your entire Life.

That is all consciousness or God is. Just know yourself and you know the Kingdom of God.

If you want to be free. Get to know your real self.
It has no form, no appearance, no root, no basis, no abode,
but is lively and buoyant.
Therefore when you look for it, you become further from it. When you seek it, you turn away from it all the more.

~ Linji ~

One cannot know the Real Self or Reality as something new, special or extra-ordinary, nothing spiritual or religious whatsoever.
But paradoxically only as the most common, plain and ordinary presence of all. One can only know God as Life itself.
As pure changeless everyday ordinary awareness of being present, as 'I' am or one's own existence.

Freedom is very easy, just understanding what is being pointed to as Reality is all that is required to remove ignorance.
Consciousness is 'I' am and 'I' am is consciousness. But paradoxically people Seeking Freedom don't want Freedom to be this easy.

Most long time Seekers and devotees tell me the exact same thing, that it couldn't be it for them, this simplicity couldn't be the ultimate Truth.
Simply because it is too simple, too ordinary. But what did they believe the wise have been pointing to all this time as the Self and Reality?
Always looking away from it. Even after decades of searching, they are still Seeking for the Self that was never lost.
They are still longing and looking for God knows what!

Without understanding this consciousness itself. The Search itself becomes the trap. Ignorance is the 'veil'.
This message of non-duality is always the same. The Truth is you! The Self or Reality is here and now, it is not reached tomorrow.
Reality, the Self or God is 'I' am. Thou Art That. Call off the Search! You are that already this very moment, remove ignorance only.

Why do people of young age with not much spiritual or religious backgrounds paradoxically recognize their true nature so easily?
The answer is very simple. There isn't that much acquired spiritual and religious conditioning or crap to see through. That's the blessing.
The 'veil' is much thinner so to speak and drops off a lot faster once you empty yourself from all acquired beliefs, only then that you are full.

Here is another Secret about Reality or consciousness. The Infinite Self or God is plain, common and very ordinary. It is ever-present.
Even more common, more plain and extremely ordinary and therefore subtler than the unchanging space in front of you.
You know it so well already, because you are it, you simly don't realize it. To look for it, is to always look away from it.
For most people Reality or 'I' am is too close, too familiar and therefore easily overlooked.

No one can give you anything new for Freedom which you don't have already.
Call it compassion if you like. For myself I am just like a finger tirelessly pointing at the moon, you must have a look and see it for yourself. 
That is all you have to do. Look at yourself. Look at your own being. Get to know your true nature by realizing that 'I' am is the Self or God.

Wisdom is Freedom. That is the Secret to Liberation, that there is no bondage.
Don't you know? Know the Truth and it shall set you Free.
Take it or leave it, that is always up to you.

You must obviously want to know this Truth for yourself. To know if you are open to this simple message of Freedom is very easy.
If you put more time and effort in looking good for the world, than to understand or know what this consciousness truly is.
Then this message of Freedom is not for you at all, you can go now.

Just like when an illusionist revealing the Secret of a magic trick.
Without the camouflage of ignorance, the extra-ordinary and mystical dissolves from the illusion.
Once you have seen through the false and understood, you then know the Truth and are no longer fooled by illusion.

Here are the ABC's of self Real-'I'-zation.

Because you seek true (constant/unchanging) consciousness.
Where can you find it? Can you attain it outside yourself?
You have to find it internally. Therefore you are directed inward.
The heart is the seat of consciousness or

consciousness itself.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

The Self is not some spiritual goal to be reached that is far away.
But present here and now with everybody as the activity of pure awareness of being common to all.
The Self is consciousness. Consciousness is the natural everyday activity of being conscious or knowing that you are.

Knowing that you are present as oneself or present-awareness is 'I' am, there isn't anyone who doesn't say 'I' am.
Everybody knows 'I' am as being oneself. Everybody is aware of his own being. 'I' exist is certain.
No one can deny his own being and say 'I' don't exist, 'I' am not.

No one denies one’s own existence
any more than one denies one’s eyes, although one cannot see them.
~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Perhaps you may have come across ignorant self-appointed Gurus and Seekers that foolishly believe that they don't exist.
Obviously there is nothing more foolish than someone who denies one's own existence. In fact 'I' am is the absolute certainty.

Be content with what you are sure of. And the only thing you can be sure of is 'I' am.
The only fact you are sure of is that you are.

The only clue you have is your certainty of being.

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

Who is not aware of himself? The wise and honest pointer will only laugh at the ignorant who wants to negate himself. 'I' am is certain.
One's very own undeniable presence of existence and therefore awareness of being present as oneself is the Self, the Reality and God.
Realize that simply being conscious is consciousness itself and 'I' am. Know the Truth! That 'I' am is God.

The only obstacle to know the Reality or the Self is simply ignorance, not knowing how close and how common to all, consciousness truly is.
Again know the simple Truth about Reality. Never far away but paradoxically ever present closer than close to oneself.
He, the Self or Reality is not some holy or spiritual or religious 'I' am at all, it is the fact of your own being.

The state of pure being which is common to all
and which is always experienced by everybody is one's true nature.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

The ignorant seeks to find the Self only because he believes it is something new that is yet to be acquired. But it is NOT.
The Self is nothing new at all or un-common at all to any one, but paradoxically so common to all and always experienced directly by everybody.
The Infinite Self or God is common to all as unchanging awareness and awareness is simply the state of being aware. That is all.
That is the Reality the ignorant spend year after year foolishly seeking to acquire.
Isn't it funny?

At one stage you will laugh at yourself for trying to discover the Self.
~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Laugh at the joke of it all.
Just realize that right now you are and remain aware. Aware-ness is present or present-awareness, that is IT.
That is awareness, the Self, He, the Reality or God you have read all about in the scriptures, that is the Open Secret to Freedom.
Remove ignorance by understanding or realizing that to simply be aware is awareness and that alone is the Infinite Self or God. It is 'I' am.

Awareness, the Self, Reality or the consciousness that is Sought-after is paradoxically simply being awake or being wakeful naturally from sleep.
The realization is that to be conscious or consciousness is indeed present naturally and that this common everyday present-awareness,
wakeful-ness or natural state of being, is the knowing that you are.

While the ignorant foolishly believes 'I' am is the name of God. The wise knows that God is 'I' am or simply knowing that you are.
Realize that to be in deep sleep or unconscious there is no awareness of being present as oneself at all. Asleep or unconscious there is no 'I' am.
God is common to all as pure being and experienced directly everyday by everybody as ordinary consciousness itself, or pure awareness of being

If you want to know God, it is easy! No hard or difficult. Do nothing at all, just understand.
Realize that you don't have to meditate, you don't have to do any practice, repeat any mantra or do any type of yoga.
There is absolutely nothing to give up and no one to surrender to, just look at yourself right now and realize that you are and remain aware.
You are that undeniable present-awareness or awareness of being present i.e. 'I' am you know so well. 'I' am is God. You are that. That is all.

The Self is yourself. There never was God and 'you'. No ego, no duality, no separation.
That is what the Oneness is all about. You are the Oneness itself already. You yourself are God. Be still and know that 'I' am is that.

One believes that there is bondage and therefore seeks liberation.
But the fact is that there is no bondage but only Liberation.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

There is no bondage, only false notions or dualistic concepts that seemingly divide consciousness into this and that. You are mind-less and egoless.
Can you show me your mind? Realize that there is no 'mind' present to overcome or go beyond. You are and have always been beyond the 'mind'.
You are 'mind' Free. Remove ignorance by realizing that whenever you say;" this thought and that thought was going through my mind".

Realize the Truth, the 'mind' you are referring to, is in fact truly the Self, awareness or consciousness. The real thoughtless unchanging you.
Have a look and see. Just be still and thoughts disappear, only the Self or Reality is effortlessly self-revealed as pure unchanging awareness itself.
This subtle affectionate unchanging common everyday presence of awareness is always present, prior to all transient thought i.e. 'moving mind'.

'Mind' is thoughts. Pause thoughts and 'mind' disappears. Only pure unchanging awareness remains present as the thoughtless Reality.
What can be any easier than that to see the false as false or that 'mind' is only illusion? It never existed but only in your imagination.

The thought 'I see' cannot see. The thought 'I hear' cannot hear. Only consciousness is itself the true cognizing presence, not the thought.
Therefore if you want to realize the Self, that is how you do it. Just be still and the Reality is self-revealed. How much time does it take?

The ignorant only believes that there is a 'mind' present to overcome, spending years doing spiritual practices and meditations,
but if it is investigated, just like the mirage of water in the desert, it will be nowhere to be found. That Wisdom is Freedom.

Now you know the Truth, that thoughts don't go through your 'mind' at all. Thoughts only appear and disappear on consciousness.
Just like all clouds appear and eventually disappear on the unchanging Sky. Thoughts are the clouds, you are the Sky.

What comes and what goes is not the real you. You are not a thought. You are unchanging awareness itself.
After all, have a look, get to know your real self, get to know your true self or your unchanging self.
'Who' is undeniably present and aware of thoughts? 'I' am of course! You are that 'I' am.

Unchanging awareness is just another name for you or that 'I' am you know.
Therefore 'who' is bound and needs to practice anything or make any effort to become liberated,
when you are already awareness?

Why wait or postpone for Freedom, when it is already here and now?
Remove ignorance only and you have done all that needed to be done for Freedom.

Only remove ignorance. That is all there is to be done.
~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Freedom is always present right here and now, it is not to be achieved. You are already Free this very moment, there is no bondage.
Therefore it doesn't matter if you are one of these religious believers or worshippers that have been waiting for two thousand years for Freedom,
or waited for two hours for Freedom. Anyone who waits for Freedom, dies. Either way you have only been waiting for Freedom way too long.

'Mind' and 'ego' are not. Therefore what have you to wait for, when Freedom is always present here and now? God is that 'I' am you know.
Freedom is just another name for 'you' right now. You yourself already are the Infinite Self, unchanging awareness is undeniably present.
There is no waiting at all for Freedom, only remove the false notion of being bound, nothing else is required.

Know the Truth! There is no becoming anything new or different than simply being oneself.

Many ignorant Seekers are told by self-appointed Gurus "have faith in the Master" for Freedom.

But the 'Master' of what? He or she can only be Master of illusion, the Master is a joke, only transient illusion, nothing else.
Why investing any faith into illusion, into the transient, into what comes and goes, into others? Isn't it foolish to believe illusion to be the Reality?
Why wait for Freedom anyhow? God is always with you, it is 'I' am. Turn within for Reality and look at yourself instead.

That is the only place you will ever discover the Real Self, the Truth and God, not outside yourself, not in this world but ever present internally.
If you don't understand this consciousness within ten minutes, forget this Guru for he or she is only keeping you on path and move on.
Don't wait for Freedom, for the one who puts his faith blindly into illusion, only dies ignorant.

People want to worship illusion, how foolish.
God cannot appear to you outside yourself, only illusion. Awareness is present as 'you' right now.
To simply be conscious or aware is to be the Reality itself. How much time does it take to know that you are?

That is why if you believe you are seeing God, the Self, a great Master, 'Enlightened' Guru or Jnani i.e. Buddha on the Road, kill him.
That is the best part of seeing this simple truth for yourself or seeing the false as false or illusion of separation, is that you also realize the Truth,
that all the spiritual books and 'Enlightened' Gurus and Teachers you have ever met on your path were really the greatest illusion of all
and that so many of them are not honest, but paradoxically only selling water by the River to the ignorant and are truly full of crap.

Realisation is nothing to be gained afresh, it is already there.
All that is necessary is to get rid of the thought I have not realised.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Many self-appointed Gurus like pretending to have attained something new, special or different, something religious or spiritual
with special faculties, when all along nothing new, special or spiritual can ever be acquired for Freedom, it is impossible!
Simply because Freedom is paradoxically the realization that you were never bound. Nothing else.

After all, know the Real Truth about Freedom! The finger pointing to the moon is not the moon, therefore if you end up
falling in love with illusion and foolishly worshiping the finger pointing to the moon, believing it is the moon, Oops! You are only missing it.
Give yourself a good slap and wake up! Stop believing the false to be true. Reality is what is with you always that doesn't come and go.

I have met more self-appointed Gurus that are more concerned with themselves than their disciples and even more contacted me
wanting to find out, how to make money from the ignorant Seeker by writing books and making a teaching with what I am sharing here.
I send them to hell obviously and you could call me the Guru Killer. For any self-appointed Guru is only the greatest illusion.

Why worship ignorance and chase after illusion, that alone is a trap. Be wise and realize that if you ever meet a Buddha, it is only a fraud.
Enlightenment is only a religious myth. What are people doing, waiting by someone else's feet for Enlightenment to come? Isn't this foolishness?
If you believe that Reality is transmitted, acquired or given to you by someone else outside yourself. You are wasting your time.

Illusion cannot give you Reality. It is absolutely impossible! Just like the water in a mirage cannot make you wet.
A dream has no substance to be the eternal, turn within toward 'I' am to realize that the dreamer is this undeniable
affectionate presence of consciousness itself, that is self-shining through your own eyes. The Self, He or God is the Seer.

Forget all these spiritual carrots and religious concepts of satsang and transmissions and all that B.S. It is all crap. It is all illusion, nothing else.
These are all lies, you must realize that there is nothing new to be freshly acquired for Freedom, because you are the One without two already.

If you want to know the Truth. You must see the false as false. That is the Secret to Freedom from all bondage or so call 'Realization'.
Drop the false notion of being bound, that is all there is to it. That is called 'waking up' from the slumber of ignorance.

The ultimate Truth is so simple. The Self or God is very common, you will laugh at your self for Seeking the Self.

Everybody knows the Self or God so well already as plain ordinary everyday awareness of being, as that 'I' am you know,
i.e. the natural state of being conscious or the undeniable activity of being conscious,
which is the undeniable knowing that you are present or 'I' am.

Consciousness is indeed always with us.
Everybody knows 'I' am. No one can deny his own being.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Can you deny that knowing that you are?
Of course not! 'I' am is certain and needs no proof.

That is the Self or consciousness itself that is Sought-after as the Reality. The Self is truly, yourself. 'I' am is the Self or you are that.
Nothing new, spiritual or special but paradoxically plain, common and ordinary everyday awareness of being. Just this and nothing else.

Another name for the Self or God is common everyday consciousness, awareness or wakefulness. To be conscious is consciousness or the Self.
To be simply awake from sleep i.e. conscious is to be aware of being present as oneself or 'I' am and that present-awareness or 'I' am-ness is God.
In other words simply realize that you are aware and remain aware, that is unchanging awareness itself i.e. the Self or consciousness.

Call off the Search. Look at your own self. Look at that 'I' am you know. You are that knowing that you are.
It is pure awareness of being. Realize that to simply be conscious is to be the Self or consciousness present or present-awareness is 'I' am.

So near and so dear. Rejoice, that is the good news. The Self is God. God is 'I' am.
You are already the Self without even trying to be. Take a look at your own self and being here and now.
Realize that 'I' am is already present here and now, 'I' am is you are. The undeniable fact of your own being. There is nothing else to realize.

Here and now you are that or 'I' am is that. Meaning you are the consciousness itself.
That is what non-duality or Oneness is simply all about. 'I' am that 'I' am or you are that 'I' am you know so well.
You are the One. 'I' and the Father are One. Remove ignorance, know the Truth about yourself, that 'I' am is God. That is all.

God is simply the natural state of being conscious or present-awareness, that is the funny paradox, the Self or God is so common to all.
'I' am is God. God is not a person, a place or a thing but consciousness. Therefore when people Seek it, they are only looking away from it.

God is the Self. 'I' am is God... Know the Truth that the 'I' is not different from the Lord.
Seeing God or the Self is only being the Self or yourself... The Self you Seek to know is truly yourself.

Your supposed ignorance causes you needless grief like that of the ten foolish men
who grieved at the lost of the tenth man, who was never lost.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

People cry over nothing. You are He this very moment!
He is awareness. He is yourself. Awareness is just another name for you right now. Being aware is being the Self, He and the Reality.
When have you ever lost yourself? Aren't aware of being present right here and now? Therefore awareness is present.

He is the unseen seer, the unheard hearer, the unthought thinker.
There is no other seer but He. No other hearer but He. No other thinker but He. No other knower but He.
He is yourself. The inner controller, the immortal, the imperishable.

~ Brihadaranyaka Upanishad~


Common everyday awareness is the Infinite Self and He, the Self or God is the unseen Seer, Hearer, Thinker, Knower present etc.
You cannot be aware of any natural activities unless you are aware or awareness is present first and foremost, you must be conscious first.

Have a look and see! Seeing is being aware, yes or no?
Hearing is being aware yes or no? Thinking is being aware yes or no? Knowing that you are present here and now is being aware yes or no?
When the true Self i.e. awareness is present, you are present also, simply because awareness is 'I' am and 'I' am is 'you'. Therefore 'you' are that.
The ultimate Truth is so common and simple, it is the only difficulty for many, the ignorant expected awareness to be something spiritual or holy.

But the Self is truly yourself, just as you are. Awareness is nothing new to 'you', but in fact another name for the plain and ordinary everyday 'you'.
There isn't anyone who is not aware of himself, everybody knows 'I' am. Don't you undeniably know that you are present right here and now?

The Self is ever present. Each one wants to know the Self.
What kind of help does one require to know oneself?

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Life is short! Why striving and wasting one's life to find what was never lost to begin with, but ever present closer to you than your own breath?
Look at your own self and being. Existence or the Infinite Self is not something holy or spiritual or some special goal to be reached far away.
It is the fact of your own being. You undeniably know that you present right now and you like it. That is the Self, 'I' am is certain.

What have you to wait for when it is already here and now?
You have to only look & see. Look at your self, at your own being. You know that you are and you like it.

Abandon all imagining, that is all. Do not rely on time, time is death, who waits dies. Life is now only!

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

The only certainty you have right now, is simply the undeniable fact of your own being. That alone is the Sought-after Reality.
Isn't it 'I' am present here and now for certain, of course it is! You undeniably know that you are. How funny! You are He, call off the Search.
Knowing that you are present right now is only because the Self is present i.e. awareness. Indivisible, awareness is that 'I' am you know so well.

You are awareness. Awareness is another name for you.
Since you are awareness, there is no need to attain or cultivate it.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Have a look, 'who' is lost or bound? Find out! Inquire for yourself 'who' is bound. Foolish ignorance is the culprit.
The realization is that no one was ever lost, simply being yourself IS being He, the Self and Reality.
You are already the Self! You are ever-Free already, why worry?

On enquiry 'who' is bound?
The notion of bondage vanishes and so does that of liberation.
The one eternally free alone remains self-revealed.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Know the Truth and it shall set you Free, Freedom is so easy.
There never was God and 'you'. God is consciousness and consciousness is Life itself.
Reality or consciousness or Life or the Self or God is undeniably present this very moment within your own dwelling.

The ignorant Seeker wants to see the Self, He, Reality or God as a blazing light.
Just like space is ever-present, unchanging but simply overlooked. The ignorant reject the ultimate Truth simply because it is no-thing.
Paradoxically ignorant people don't want the ultimate Truth to be True, only because it is too simple, too easy, too common. A strange paradox.
Yet, the ultimate Truth is sooooo simple. Freedom is the easiest thing in the world. All the wise will tell you exactly that. Child-like simplicity.

The ultimate Truth is so simple.
~ Ramana Maharshi ~


Just be still for a few moments and realize that you are and remain aware.
After all, have a look at yourself and see. What remains present without thoughts present?
Isn't there an awareness of being present? You know that you are present because you are this unchanging awareness itself.

You are conscious, you are aware and remain aware of being. 'I' am is certain.
Present-awareness i.e. you are aware of being present. You cannot negate that knowing that you are.
Who is not aware of himself? That alone is God, the Self or present-awareness. God is simply being aware.

Thoughts come and thoughts go naturally like they are supposed to and always will for as long as you are living in a body,
but 'you' yourself remain present and unchanging as the affectionate unchanging background, which is simply your real self or pure awareness.
Pause thoughts, be still and awareness is self-revealed as the eternal real 'you'. You are that and have always been this presence of awareness itself.

Just be aware that you are and remain aware.
You are aware anyhow, you need not try to be.

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~


It is closer to you and so familiar to you then your own breath and any thoughts.
You can pause thoughts and you can hold your breath, you can be still but in no circumstance can you pause, being aware.
Simply because being aware or awareness is the Reality that doesn't come and go like thoughts do. Being aware is the Self, it is 'I' am.

There isn't anything simpler than to realize the Self, that is the funny paradox, just be still for a few moments.
Pause thoughts and realize that you are the presence of awareness itself which is simply the common ordinary everyday 'you'.

All that is required to realize the Self is to be still.
What can be easier than that?

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Know the truth about Reality. The Self is undeniably present in all beings. It is existence itself.
The Self is not silence. The Self is the common affectionate everyday presence of awareness you already know so well as you, as 'I' am.
To simply be aware is this presence of awareness itself or the Self. Look and see! Are you aware? That is IT, always present closer than close to you.

The ignorant looks for Reality in meditations and in silence, when he is already the eternal Self itself
but doesn't know that common to all being-ness or unchanging awareness or existence or Reality is ever present as his own self and being.
Being aware is being God. Ignorance is the only obstacle to Freedom, not knowing this simple Truth about one's true nature, is the only bondage.

Awareness is nothing new at all, but the plain good ol' you, so dear and so familiar to you, paradoxically the most common and ordinary presence
you yourself have always known yourself to be your entire life, the Infinite Self or pure awareness is only camouflaged as 'I' am, as  your own self.

Therefore to know yourself to be this presence of awareness itself, is to know the Truth, that 'I' am is God.
Be still and know or realize that you are this 'I' am-ness or pure awareness that remains present when they are no thoughts present. Voila!
You are that 'I' am-ness or consciousness itself that remains present when they are no thoughts. That is IT, that is the Self, Reality or God.
Be still and know that 'I' am is God.

It is true! You are awareness itself. You are the Self. You are God.
You are pure awareness. The witness of all things. You are awareness itself. Never changing.
The Self is in all beings and all being are in the Self.... Know you are Free.

~ Ashtavakra Gita~

That is all. Nothing new under the Sun. You are awareness, the Self i.e. common unchanging awareness is just another name for 'you'.
You are that, awareness is common to all. Nothing spiritual or special It is pure changeless being. Being aware is being it.
Pause thoughts and voila! You have realized the Self. You are this unchanging reality itself, unchanging awareness.

We are imagining we are bound and are making various, strenuous attempts to become free.
We will be surprised that we were frantically trying to attain something, which we have always been and are.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Freedom is so easy, you are awareness itself right now, it is simply being yourself.
Being aware is the Infinite, God, He, the Reality and of course Awareness, what you have always been and are, rejoice!

What you need is to be aware of being aware.
~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~


God is so near and so near. Aren't you aware? That is IT. To know the Self is being aware of being aware. Isn't it a funny paradox!
You are and always remain aware. So simple, that presence of undeniable awareness is one's true nature. Freedom is always right here.
Right under your nose. Awareness is the Self and that 'I' am you know as your own self and being. There is absolutely nothing you have to do to.

Remove ignorance only, nothing else is required. Understanding is all.
Just understand i.e. realize that you are already the Self itself. It is 'you'. Call off the Search. God is another name for 'you'.
God is that 'I' or 'I' am you have always known yourself to be. Awareness of being or knowing that you are present here and now is God.

It is pure awareness of being. It is that 'I' am you know so well.
~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

This is the Secret to 'Enlightenment' shining in plain view, to simply be conscious is to be 'Enlightened'. That is the cosmic joke.
Everybody wakes up 'Enlightened', they simply don't realize it. Ignorance is the only obstacle to 'Enlightenment'.
Not knowing this Open Secret about conscious-ness or being-ness to be at once the Self and 'I' am.

Not knowing how close God is to oneself, people Seek it far away. To find God, just turn within and you have found it as 'I' am. 'I' am is God.
God is in you. God is yourself. God is 'I' am. There isn't anyone who doesn't say 'I' am and is not undeniably aware of himself. 'I' exist is certain.
No one can say 'I' am not and negate his own self. Is there anyone who is not aware of himself?
Everybody knows 'I' am. Everybody knows God.

Is there anyone who is not aware of himself? Each one knows,
but yet does not know the Self. A strange paradox!

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

People foolishly spend their whole lives prayer to a fictitious God they believe somewhere in the Sky.
If you want to know the Self, He, the Reality or God, simply get to know 'I' am. Get to know your own self and being.
After all, didn't anyone tell you? You are only directed to look internally for the Self or God, simply because the Kingdom is in you.

The Kingdom is in you.
And if you know yourself then you know the Kingdom of God.

~ Jesus of Nazareth ~

Know the Truth! Freedom is not at all about reaching or attaining the Self or becoming God or some holy being.
Wisdom is Freedom. Just this and nothing else. Know yourself. Know 'I' am. Who am 'I'?
And if you know yourself or 'I' am, then you know the Kingdom of God.

Who am 'I'? After all, the only fact you are sure of is that you are.
'I' am is certain.

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

Never lost or far away, the Self or God is always present closer to you than your own breath.
Say 'I' am to yourself, see! You undeniably know that you are. No one can deny his own self.
You can call off the Search now and laugh at yourself for searching the Self or God.

Be content with what you are sure of. And the only thing you can be sure of is 'I' am.
The only fact you are sure of is that you are. The only clue you have is your certainty of being.

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

You are that, that 'I' am you already know so well, as your very own self. After all, what else did you expect the Self to be, a blazing light?
The Self is consciousness and consciousness is 'I' am or knowing that you are present right now. Just this and nothing else.

To know the eternal Self is so easy, but people don't want easy what to do! Have a look and see. You cannot negate that knowing that you are.
You cannot negate your own self, your only certainty is in fact, the fact of your own being. Never far away, God, the Self, He, the Reality is 'I' am.

The ignorant believes the Self is something new or special, something spiritual or some spiritual goal to be reached. That is only B.S. of course.
That is only what the ignorant believes and therefore will spend their entire Life Seeking for themselves all along,
without even knowing it, how funny! Like a Fish in the Ocean searching for the Ocean. Ignorance is a 'bitch'.

The state of self-realisation, as we call it, is not attaining something new or reaching some goal which is far away,
but simply being that which you always are and which you always have been.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

The only difference between the wise and the ignorant, is simply that the ignorant believes a Guru is the Self or Reality and worships illusion.
The wise understands that the Reality is ever present within his own dwelling, not outside himself

but simply recognizes the Infinite Self to be himself. Gee! yoU aRe yoU.

You wander restlessly from forest to forest
while the Reality is within your own dwelling.

~ Kabir ~

To be or not to be? 'I' am or 'I' am not? That is Secret to Freedom hidden in plain view! Aren't you undeniably aware of being present right now?
Of course you are aware of being! That is IT, that present-awareness common to all or plain ordinary everyday awareness of being.

Pure awareness of being is bliss. 'I' exist here and now, 'I' am this very moment is true happiness.
Existence is the true Beloved, the Precious. Existence is pure being. Being is true happiness. Everybody loves to be alive.

The experience is here and now. One cannot deny one’s own self.
Existence is the same as happiness and happiness is the same as being.
Why should one seek it?

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Can you deny your own self.
Can you negate being alive? Can you say 'I' am not? Of course not! 'I' exist is certain.
That is the only Reality you can never deny, the fact of being present here and now or 'I' am.
Everybody knows that they are, everybody knows 'I' am simply because 'I' am is the Reality itself.

Like hiding the Precious in your own pocket, the Self is closer to you than you think.
It was never lost at any time, but in fact you had it with you all along. 'I' am is always with you.
So near and so dear. You have always been the Self itself your entire life, you simply didn't realize it.

There is no separation. There is no duality. 'I' am is the self and God. 'I' am is the Oneness.
The best definition is 'I' am that 'I' am. Here and now 'you' are that. That is the ABC's of self Real-'I'-zation.
Realize that your own self is the Self, there is nothing else to realize. The Ultimate Truth is so simple.

The feeling that 'I' have not realised is the obstruction to realisation.
In fact it is already realised, there is nothing more to be realised.
~ Ramana Maharshi ~

How to tell from the cons artist i.e. self-appointed Guru that is truly after people's money and gratification and the true Guru?
Simple! The self-appointed Guru will lour people with books and advertisements to come to see them and be in their presence
entice the imbecile with spiritual carrots to somehow receive some imaginary transmission of Grace of God or shakti.

That is why disciples of holy Gurus and Enlightened Sages, Jnanis and Masters will only die ignorant of the Self guaranteed. It is a paradox!
The ignorant seeker or Guru worshipper, lover and follower only believes the false to be true and therefore is blind or ignorant and will never know
the Real truth about himself and will never realize this simple Truth about what the Self truly is, about what consciousness truly represents.
That consciousness or the Infinite Self is truly one's own self and being. That the Real Self is simply 'I' am.

The Guru cannot give you anything new, which you don’t have already.
Removal of the notion that we have not realised the Self, is all that is required.
We are always the Self, only we don’t realise it.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~


The True Guru or honest pointer on the other hand, is paradoxically the complete opposite of the holy Guru. He wants no thing from any one.
You couldn't pay the true Guru any amount of money to sell you water by the River, it is absolutely impossible for the true Guru to take
anything from others, for he wants nothing at all for himself. Just sharing this simple Truth from Self to Self or Heart to Heart.

Just an ordinary person that knows you need absolutely nothing at all for Freedom, especially him, and is never tired or reminding you
to in fact Kill the self-appointed Guru if you earnestly want Freedom, or kill the Buddha on the Road, because it is the greatest illusion, just a fraud.
All that is required for real Freedom, is to remove the false notion 'I' have not yet realized the Self, simply because being yourself is the Self itself.

You must stand alone for freedom.

The true Guru will not estrange you from yourself. He knows you need nothing, not even him, and is never tired of reminding you.
But the self-appointed Guru is more concerned with himself than with his disciples.

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

All blessing only come from within, look at that 'I' am you know.
That is the Self, He or Reality you have been Seeking to find all along, your very own self and being.
Here and now, you are and always have been that, didn't anyone told you this simple truth about yourself?

All blessings come from within. Turn within.
To that 'I' am you know.

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

That is pretty much it, these are the ABC's to Freedom and to self-Real-'I'-zation or to realize that you are already the Self and Real-'I'-zed.
Once you laugh at yourself for being foolish, then you know the truth! That you have always been, what you have been Seeking.

Take it or leave it, that is up to you, makes no difference whatsoever that you know it or not.
Simply because you are awareness itself this very moment, you are the Self anyhow right now. You cannot be anything else.
It is 'you'. It is that 'I' am you know.

You are awareness. Awareness is another name for you.
Since you are awareness, there is no need to attain or cultivate it.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

If you understand that to simply be aware is awareness and to simply be conscious is consciousness, then you know what I know, no-thing.

Realize that for myself no one gave anything new which I didn't have already, only ignorance was removed.
I simply didn't know that to be aware naturally and effortlessly was the Real Self or unchanging awareness. That is all.

Self-appointed Gurus I sat with always pointed me to look into silence, to keep quiet and therefore I was kept on a seeking path of ignorance.
No one had directly pointed me to that undeniable presence of awareness before, nothing new was gained because nothing was lost.
I was simply ignorant to what the Self what truly all about. That to be aware was the Infinite Self or awareness itself. That is all.

Now I know the Truth about my common everyday ordinary self, that I and awareness are One.
After all, who is not aware of himself? Everybody knows that they are. Awareness present is 'I' am.

The True Guru will tell you the Truth.
To try to stop thoughts and to keep quiet is bondage itself. This cannot help you for Freedom.
That if you truly desire Freedom, not to make keeping mentally still or keeping quiet into a practice to be performed,
but to recognize or realize that being aware and remaining aware is itself the Reality, the Self and one's unchanging true nature.

Do not try to keep quiet,
do not make being quiet into a task to be performed. Don't be restless about being quiet, miserable about being happy...

Just be aware that you are and remain aware. You are aware anyhow, you need not try to be.
~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~


The ignorant Seeker believes an 'Enlightened' Guru, Sage or Jnani is someone that has achieved 'Enlightenment', radiating Grace and wisdom.
Someone that has become or attained great or spiritual state of consciousness. But that is only a myth of ignorance, just a spiritual carrot.
Nothing special or spiritual is freshly acquired for Freedom, in fact only false notions like these are dropped down the toilet, that is all.

That is what the wise have discovered about themselves, by simply investigating and inquiring who am 'I'?
Present-awareness is 'I' am. The understanding or realization is simply that 'I' and awareness are One.
Paradoxically the state called Realization is simply being oneself.

The state we call Realisation is simply being oneself.
Not knowing anything or becoming anything.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Understanding this consciousness is all that is required for Freedom. Not becoming anything new or special.
That foolish belief of becoming anything new, holy or spiritual is the bondage itself. Call off the Search.

If you don't understand this consciousness itself, then you are in bondage
when you will understand what this is, then that is liberation. Paradoxically you will realize that you are already liberated.

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

Freedom is very easy.
The ultimate Truth is very simple. Understanding is all that is necessary. Understanding is Realizing, not Seeking it.
Yet people wanting to know the Self or consciousness do not want to know or understand the Self or consciousness. A strange paradox.
The ignorant Seeker strongly believes that the Self or Freedom is yet to be reached or attained, foolishly seeking a blazing light
that misunderstanding, false notion or ignorance is paradoxically itself, the only bondage.

Sought-after Truth is found, by not seeking it.
~ Longchen-pa ~

If you want to know the Self or the Reality, have a look at yourself right now, are you aware? That is IT!
To be aware is awareness or the Self. This is the Secret to Freedom, the Self-appointed Guru doesn't want you to know.

You need not try to become anything new or attain anything special or spiritual for Freedom at all.
Freedom was never about acquiring anything new from someone else or a new faculty. But all about being oneself naturally. About being aware.
Just get to know yourself, understanding that what is being pointed to as the Real Self or 'I' am is simply common awareness itself, is Freedom.

Realisation is not the acquisition of anything new, nor is it a new faculty.
It is only removal of all camouflage.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Know the Truth and it shall set you Free! Why?
Simply because knowing the Truth is realizing that you were never bound.

People ask when is the end of suffering? The answer is very simple.

When you die! Until then the whole range of emotions must be present. That's just the way Life is.

What about peace, what about love, what about happiness?
These are just transient states. The Self or awareness is stateless.

In fact if you ask the wise what is Love?
He will tell you the simple Truth! Bondage.

The ignorant doesn't like to hear the Truth, it hurts.
Truth pinches people's attachment to illusion, to person, place or thing. They want to Love or fall in Love with some body.
Their desires is always for other 'things'. For some new or better 'object' of affection.
Which eventually leaves them and brings them down to their knees.

Paradoxically for many, when Life pulls out the carpet
right from underneath their feet, it becomes the incentive to want to know and discover what is Life truly all about.
And therefore for some earnest Seekers a catalyst for one's journey of self-discovery. Of course not everybody goes all the way.
Many fall right back into a state of slumber and are absorbed in their dream drama again and forget all about what is Real and what is false.

The world is a changing dream, maya, leave it be as it may, just understand that no 'thing' is true. Just transient in nature.
People don't realize that Love or attachments for illusion, for the transient, for person, place and thing is only pain and suffering. It won't last.
The bliss of the Self is emptiness. Where nothing is going on at all. No attachments or feelings of Love and adoration for any person, place or thing.

Existence is happiness. Existence is bliss. Existence is the True Beloved, just this no-thing and no 'thing' else.

Pure changeless being or pure unchanging existence itself is the immortal Beloved and just like space, that emptiness always remains untouched,
unaltered, unmodified, eternally unchanging and paradoxically this stateless state of pure being-ness alone is wholeness and fullness.

Just like the Sky doesn't care about what kind of cloud appears on it or the movie screen about the images appearing on it.
Just like a mirror on a wall, the Self reflects everything but doesn't take the touch no matter what it is, happy or sad no state ever remains.

The false Guru or con artist understands that everybody is always seeking for some 'body'. Wanting to find true love, happiness and security.
Self-appointed Gurus will use peace, love and happiness to entice the ignorant Seeker, but none of these states has anything to do with Reality.

Freedom is very easy, the ultimate Truth is so simple, but paradoxically people don't want easy and refuse the ultimate truth to be so simple.
Reality is no-thing. Many long time Seekers feel cheated by their beloved Gurus when they come to realize what ultimate Truth is really all about.

Mislead to believe that they will eventually receive or acquire a special prize or spiritual carrot called 'Enlightenment', but there is no such thing.
Ignorance is the culprit. Like being sold ignorance or water by the River, many have been fooled because they believed that the finger is the moon.

Yet a Buddha is an ordinary person and an ordinary person is a Buddha. The True Guru knows you need nothing. Everybody is always the Self.
The wise knows there is no difference whatsoever, one only believes that there is, but there isn't! Just a false notion of duality and separation.
Many ignorant Seekers will die ignorant of the Self, simply because they were mislead to worship illusion and chase after spiritual carrots.

Know the Truth, there is no bad ogre hidden somewhere inside you to overcome and there is no finite self or 'mind' that wants to know the Self.
The familiar everyday you that wants to know who am 'I' or your true nature is in fact already the Infinite Self.
Therefore the search for the Self is the Trap. You are already that.

There is no reaching or attaining the Self. You are this Oneness right now, the One without a second. 
Nothing else about you exist but that.
Therefore you already are the Oneness.

You, being the Self want to know how to attain the Self.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Who wants to know the Self? 'I' do!
Who wants to know how to attain the Self, how to reach or become the Self? 'I' do!
Realize that right here and now 'I' is the Self itself already, 'I' is the Reality you have never lost.
You are the Self already. Right now, this very moment you are the One. Therefore you cannot reach, attain or become the Self. It is impossible!

How can 'I' attain 'I', when 'I' is already the destination you have never left? Know the Self, get to know your own everyday self or who am 'I'?
Remove ignorance about 'I' or your own self. Then the Truth is revealed about 'I'. That 'I' is not a finite self but in fact the one always eternally Free.
That 'I' and the Father are truly One. No difference between 'I' or your own familiar everyday self and the 'Lord'. No duality.

One believes that there is bondage and therefore seeks liberation.
But the fact is that there is no bondage but only Liberation.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

The paradox is the 'you' or 'I' that you believe is a finite mortal self limited to your body, has in fact always been the Infinite Self all along.
Ignorance is the only obstacle from knowing this Truth! Who am 'I' really? Get to know you. Remember who 'you' truly are, remember yourself.
After all, you are the imperishable Self. Once you investigate yourself, you realize that 'I' is already Real-'I'-zed and that is the final Realization.

Never far away or apart for even an instant, but always present closer than close to oneself.
'I' or oneself has always been the goal and final Reality.

Say 'I' to yourself, because that is IT. Know Thyself.
Closer to you than you can ever imagine, know the Truth that 'I' is the Real 'you'.
That is the Secret hidden in plain view.

Know the Truth!
That the 'I' is not different from the Lord.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

lotus_red4.jpg (1041 bytes)

Who am 'I'? What does 'I' represent? Who is 'I' real identity?
These are the right questions that bring the Truth about oneself in the forefront and Freedom about, this is self inquiry.
The illusion of separation, duality and false notion of bondage cannot stand up to self-investigation.

Who are you really? Do you really know your self?
Are you a thought? Which thought are you? Are you the 'I' thought?

What happens if you pause thoughts? What happens if you are mentally still?
If you were a thought why don't you disappear?

You don't disappear when they are not thoughts present, simply because you are not a thought at all, that is all.
You are the presence of awareness that is unchanging prior to all thoughts. The 'background' present beyond all thoughts that appear.

No thought can ever remain present on 'you', it is impossible! Not even the thought 'I' remains present,
but 'you' yourself always remain undeniably present as present-awareness, as pure awareness of being. As 'I' am.
Simply because you yourself are not a thought! You yourself are unchanging thoughtless awareness. Thoughts only appear on 'you'.

Thoughts are the passing clouds and you are the unchanging Sky.
Be still and the clouds disappear instantly and the unchanging Sky is self-revealed as your real eternal self.
To know yourself to simply be this unchanging presence of affectionate awareness itself, is to know the Truth. You are that.

So if you ever wondered what it is like to be an 'Enlightened' Sage or Jnani, it is very simple. Are you aware?
If you can undeniably answer "yes, of course 'I' am aware". There you go sport! That is IT. Being aware is being 'Enlightened'.
To be aware is awareness itself, that alone is the Self and God, therefore there is no need to cultivate or attain 'Enlightenment'.
Awareness is another just name for you right now! You are already that, you simply don't realize it.

What you need is to be aware of being aware.
~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

Remove ignorance! Know the Truth. 'I' is the eternal Self.
There is not 'I' and 'you', no two selves ever existed. You yourself are the eternal Self itself, it is 'I' .
Here and now 'I' is that or here and now 'you' are that. That is all. 'I' is the Real-'I'-zation. It is 'I' am or 'you' are.

People seeking the Self are sent on a wild goose chase to find the source of the 'I', to try to catch the 'I' and all that non-sense.
The 'I' is the Infinite Self. You yourself are the Source. How can you see, catch or kiss yourself?  You are the Self itself, the One without two.

There is no 'I' thought and 'you', there is no 'ego' and 'you' or anything else to overcome for Freedom to be, Freedom is always here. It is 'you' are.
The Infinite Self is yourself, just as you are right here and now, see through the B.S. and voila! You know the Truth about 'I' or yourself.

Be still for a moment, pause thoughts and you are there, that is home.
After all, don't you yourself remain present as your familiar self anyhow, without any thoughts present? Of course you are.
'Who' else would it be? Couldn't be a thought, so realize that this affectionate thoughtless presence present, is itself pure unchanging awareness.

Realize that you are always present first and foremost as this presence of awareness itself, for anything else to be.
How many thoughts can you have if you are not conscious or aware? None! Present-awareness is this knowing that you are.

Before you can think 'I am', you are undeniably present first and foremost as this present-awareness.
The thought 'I' am only translate that undeniably knowing that you are present i.e pure awareness of being or the Self.
The thought 'I am aware' is not the awareness itself, but just a translation of that presence of awareness and pure awareness of being.

The ignorant Seeker, worshipper, believer and Guru lover is simply 'veiled'. Why be an ignorant fool? Know yourself first and foremost!
Don't have to go far to know the Truth about Reality and Freedom! Only the ignorant believes that me, myself and 'I' is a self limited to the body.

To the wise, me, myself and 'I' is the Infinite Self or awareness itself, that is all. No duality present but always Oneness present as oneself.
Not knowing this simple Secret is the only bondage, ignorance is the bondage itself, nothing else.
Get rid of the 'veil' of ignorance by understanding.

Only remove ignorance.
That is all there is to be done.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Remove ignorance. It is so easy to know the Self.
There is absolutely nothing you have to do! Look at yourself only.

Your Life is God's Life. Your Will is God's Will. You being is the Supreme Being.
You are not what you appear to be, you are not an individual self, you are the indivisible Self, you are the One without two.

Ego is not, small self is not and finite self is not. Your self is the Self and the Self is yourself and here and now you are that. Rejoice!

'Enlightened' Gurus, 'Realized' Sages and Spiritual Masters will tell their disciples
they have to kill the 'ego' so that they can finally reach Freedom and find eternal peace, but wait a minute, what 'ego'?
Look for an 'ego' and like the mirage of water in the desert, it will never be found, because it is only false imagination, nothing else.

If you seek the ego you will find, it does not exist.
That is the way to get rid of it. Look for it and it will not be found.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Why do people spend years meditating and doing all type of yogas trying to overcome something that doesn't even exist? Who knows!
Some people are just plain stupid, what can you do about it. Nothing can help them discover the Truth about themselves.
They will never know that there is no 'ego' and therefore were never bound at any time, but paradoxically ever-Free.

Throw away the spiritual books, dump all the Gurus and Buddhas down the toilet, forget all this spiritual B.S.
and look at yourself instead, get to know you! That is the only way you will ever know God, the Self, Reality and Freedom.
All blessings come from within, the Reality is within yourself right now, present as your own self. You are already IT.

To know God, don't look far away but paradoxically turn within, toward your very own everyday familiar self and being.
Freedom is easy! The question is do you want easy? Or do you want to spend year after year striving and searching in vain for yourself?

'I' am is the way. 'I' am is the Truth. 'I' am is God.
To know thyself is to know God. 'I' am that 'I' am is to know the Truth about oneself.
Who am 'I'? And 'I' is self-revealed to be the Infinite Self itself. You are already that. It is that 'I' am you know so well.
Your entire Life, you have always been the Oneness or the Self that you have been seeking all along, you simply did know it.

Wisdom is Freedom. Ignorance is the only culprit. Get rid of ignorance. That is all.
Who am 'I'? Don't you know that you are? Know 'I' am to be pure awareness itself.

Everybody knows 'I' am.
There isn't anyone that is not aware of himself. Everybody knows God so well already.
After all, just be still and know, that 'I' am is God. That is all, nothing new under the Sun. Awareness of being is bliss.
Awareness of being is 'I' am. Awareness of being is God. Same, same! No one can deny his own self and negate being, 'I' am is certain.

Don't you know that to look for God or the Self is always looking away from the Self or God.
You, will only find the Self when you stop seeking the Self as something new.

Being yourself is being the Self, how can you reach or attain 'you'?
How can 'you' kiss 'you'?

lotus_red4.jpg (1041 bytes)

Hidden in plain sight. Stop seeking and look at yourself instead, you are IT!
The Seeker is in fact the Sought. You are already and have always been the eternal Self. You exist always.

Question and investigate. Only through inquiry that the 'veil' of ignorance covering up your real nature and true identity dissolves.
Who am 'I'? Know thyself. To know yourself is to know the Infinite Self. To know yourself is to know the Kingdom of God or this Oneness.

Remove ignorance about yourself, by getting to know your own self. Knowing yourself is the key word, not reach or attain or become anything.
Know the real Truth about yourself and it shall set you Free. If you don't want this to be true for you, then you will never know the Self, what to do!

You must have the desire to know the Self more than anything else of this world. This desire alone is the call home. Nothing else matters but this.
Then the Self reveals itself to itself. Realize that the only presence in you, that is able to understand this message of Freedom is in fact the Self.
Reality is always here. There never has been anything else present with 'you' as 'you', but the Infinite Self itself all along, ego is not.

If you feel lost in your dream, then follow the map pointing to your own being, that is the gift of Self to Self or Heart to Heart.
Have a look at yourself and see. This gift of God, you cannot buy or acquire from others, it is only revealed from within your own heart.
You alone must take a look at yourself. No one can make you realize the Self or give you the Self. Only point to yourself to already be the Self.

You are the One. There is no personal self or individual 'me'. To understand this non-duality is Freedom.
You are not a separate 'me', but in fact you are the Infinite Self itself. You are not a separate self or 'ego', but in fact you are the Infinite Self itself.
You are not an individual self, you are the Infinite Self, you are the Self already, that is all. Why wait for Freedom when you are already the Self?


There is no other self present with you to get rid of or to overcome, there never was, the Truth is you. You are IT right now, that is all.
Being you is being the Self itself, here and now you yourself are that. That is what non-duality or Oneness is all about, all about 'you'.
There is nothing to get rid of, nothing to reach or to attain, you are already the Oneness this very moment. Awareness is, you are.

Seeking the Self is missing the Self, call off the Search, you are the One without two.
Anything whatsoever you do to reach the Self is only pointing away from it, not to it at all.

After all, if you are looking for awareness pass your nose, you are already looking for awareness way too far. You already miss it.
It is so dear and so near, closer to you than your own breath, in fact to look for it is always looking away from it, simply because you are

awareness itself or the Self already right now. That is the Open Secret, you are already that this very moment, simply being you, just as you are.

Ignorant Seekers will even buy silent retreats from self-appointed Gurus foolishly believing it will help them attain the Self, isn't it foolish?
To know the Self is easy, remove ignorance only, that is all that is required. Here and now you are already that. Freedom is always here.
Nothing at all is to be attained or freshly acquired. You are already there. It is that 'I' am you know.

The only mistake for the ignorant Seeker and worshipper is to falsely believe that God is something special and apart from oneself.
When in fact God is the most common presence to all and always experienced directly every single day by everybody alive.

God, the Self or awareness is simply the knowing that you are. It is 'I' exist, it is 'I' am present.
To know that you are alive and aware of being present right now is this present-awareness, the Self or God.

Is there anyone who is not aware of himself?
Each one knows, but yet does not know the Self (God).
A strange paradox!
~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Awareness of being present here and now is the Self or God. Know the Truth! Know that 'I' exist, 'I' am is God. You are God.
Everybody knows 'I' exist, 'I' am present and aware of being present is undeniable. No one can negate his own self, no one can negate being.
You cannot negate that awareness because you cannot negate that knowing that you are. You are that knowing or presence of awareness itself.
Present-awareness is certain. Realize that this undeniable knowing that you are present right now, this very moment is God, the Self, awareness.

Stop searching, stop seeking and turn toward your own self. Have a look at your own being, get to know 'I' am.
Get to know that 'I' am you know so well. Be still and know that 'I' am is the Self, your true nature and God.
No one can negate being, 'I' am is certain.

Realize that when you say 'I' am so and so, 'I' am this and 'I' am that. That is not the Truth about who you are.
The real Truth is that you are not your given name, you are not your changing body. 'I' am is the unseen presence of awareness in the body.
You are that unchanging awareness itself, not the body you call 'mine', but the unseen host or Spirit present in the body is who you truly are.

Realize that this undeniable presence of awareness is what 'I' am represent and what you always are, it is your own being.
'I' am is this affectionate being-ness or presence of awareness you have always known yourself to be.

There is no one that does not say 'I' am.
The wrong knowledge of 'I' am the body is the cause of all mischief.
This wrong knowledge must go. That is the Realization.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Is there anyone who is not aware of himself? Everybody says 'I' all day long.
Therefore 'I' exist, 'I' am is certain. No one can deny his own self. No one can say 'I' don't exist and negate being present. It is impossible.
Know the Truth about 'I', about your own everyday familiar self, about your own being! That 'I' and the 'Father' are One, same, same.

There is no other 'I' present with oneself but this One 'I'. This alone is the Truth about non-duality and therefore Oneness.
If you can say 'I', then you know the Self. Not as your changing mortal body, but as the knowing that you are. As present-awareness.
As awareness of being present as 'I'. 'I' is present-awareness itself. 'I' is not different from the Self. 'I' is the Self and God.

Realize that when ever you say 'I', it is not your body, it is not an ego or small self.
Know the Truth, that when ever you say 'I' it is a direct translation of that pure awareness of being.
Remove ignorance about 'I'. Know yourself or 'I' real identity is to know the Truth, Freedom and this Oneness.

To the ignorant the 'I' is the self limited to the body.
To the wise, the 'I' is the Infinite Self.
~ Ramana Maharshi ~

lotus_red4.jpg (1041 bytes)

To understand or realize that 'I' is the Infinite Self is the final Real-'I'-zation. That is the end of the Search.
Be still and realize that 'I' always remain present and aware of being. 'I' is present-awareness unchanging like the Sky.
'I' is the Son and the Father. 'I' is not different from the Lord. 'I' is the Infinite. 'I' is God.

Discern between all thoughts and 'I' awareness. The thought I see cannot see. The thought I hear cannot hear.
The thought I am aware cannot be aware. A thought cannot and will never be the actuality. A thought only translates the actuality, the Reality.
With or without any thoughts, seeing is happening naturally, hearing is happening naturally, awareness is undeniably present naturally.


That is the 'trick' to Freedom.
Realize that 'I' represent pure unchanging awareness itself, pure being. That alone is what is being pointed to here, just this.
Not the thought I, not the word I but what they truly represent.
Present-awareness or pure awareness of being, that is the Reality.

After all, it is so easy to prove it to yourself, just pause thoughts, be still!
Who remains present and aware of all natural activities? Who is seeing? Who is hearing? Who is aware? 'I' am.


You are that presence of unchanging affectionate awareness itself or 'I' am-ness. 'I' only represent pure changeless being, the activity.

After all, you don't disappear. 'I' always remain undeniably present and unchanging as pure awareness of being. As your real self.

All that is required to realize the Self is to be still.
What can be easier than that?

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Again laugh at the joke of it all. Enlightenment is just a spiritual carrot for the dummy!
A cosmic joke that consciousness plays on itself for self entertainment. Graduate by understanding and seeing though the 'veil'.
All that is necessary to know the Self or 'Enlightenment' is to pause thoughts, just be still and you are there. Nothing else is to be realized.
Thoughts disappear but you don't come or go anywhere, you are not a thought but the presence of awareness that is aware of all thoughts.

Enlightened Guru will tell you there is more to it because they are full of crap, most a liars. Know this to be true.
They don't want you to know this simple Truth. They are the greatest illusion themselves and perpetuate illusion only, nothing else.

Enlightenment is just a religious myth for the ignorant sucker, are you a sucker?
Wake up and get to know the Truth about yourself, that alone sets you Free, nothing else.

If you are wise, the next time you believe you are meeting, having satsang or seeing a Buddha on the Road, run him over and make sure he is dead.

Looking for God and Freedom in the wrong places. Here is a little test for you to know if you are a sucker to illusion.
If you worship someone outside yourself, any person, place or thing dead or alive to be the Self or God, then you are a sucker to illusion.
If you believe a Buddha is a special being with great faculties and that these people have attained something special, you don't already have.
Then you are a sucker to illusion and ignorance, because there is no bondage and there is no liberation, knowing the Truth is itself the Liberation.


And last but not least the sucker strongly believes the false to be true, and will reject the simple ultimate Truth about himself to be false.
All a strange paradox. That is what a dream is, like being hypnotized, programmed, strongly believing a mirage of water in the desert to be Reality.

Here another Secret! How to know if what I am saying here and now is true? Simple, prove it to yourself!
If after ten, twenty or fifty years of life searching here and there, going from Guru to Guru and after all that, you are still wondering

what is the Self, what is Reality and what knowing yourself and Freedom is all about. Then you for certain that you have been an ignorant fool
and you have all along been sucking up to illusion itself, and wasting your life away.
After all, who waits for Freedom will only die ignorant
and that alone is your own proof.

Know the Truth! You are the Reality you have been seeking to find all along, don't you get it?
It is simply your own everyday being. Your own existence, you own self. Stop Seeking it and realize the simple Truth, that here and now you are IT.

Awareness is always undeniably present with you as your own being. Are conscious? Are you aware? You know that you are? That is IT!
That alone is the Infinite Self, God or consciousness. You are that and that's that! Be still and know yourself, be still and know that 'I' am that.
The Self is 'I' am and 'I' am is the Self. Have a look at that affectionate awareness of being or 'I' am you have always known yourself to be.
That is all.

Consciousness is indeed always with us.
Everybody knows 'I' am. No one can deny his own being.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Of course I could sell you water by the river and tell you all the good thing that you want to hear with a smile on my face.
But what good does this do for you? Have a look and see, where are you in your Life right now, have you discover the Truth about yourself?
Self-appointed Gurus will massage you with B.S., because Truth is like a cutting sword reaping through any attachments to illusion.
Truth actually hurts. Truth will pinch you and slap you around a bit, to wake you up from a dream of ignorance.

If you choose to know the Truth about yourself, then Realize that no attachments to the false will remain. Nothing can stick to it.
The choice is yours, which do you want to follow, illusion or Reality? Pick the white sweet and sugary pill of illusion or the red bitter and sour pill.
Truth is like a bitter medicine that is very hard to swallow at first, but afterwards you are extremely grateful and glad you have taken it.
So be wise and choose wisely what is Real, because Reality will never be what you have expected it to be.

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

'I' and awareness are One, undeniably present and unchanging like the Sky. No one can deny his own self or 'I'.
Who is not aware of himself? There isn't anyone who doesn't say 'I' and knows 'I' am. The 'I' is in fact God himself. The 'I' is consciousness.
'I' is the Lord Almighty. The 'I' is the Infinite Self, how funny. Know Thyself, don't you know who you are? You are That. 'I' is That, that is all.

God or the Self is not some spiritual goal to be reached far away. God is present here and now. God is 'I' am or pure awareness of being.
Throw away all the spiritual and holy books, they are full of separation and duality and kill all the Buddhas, get to know yourself and you know God.

The kingdom is in you. Look at your own self instead, get to know who is 'I'. Who am 'I'? You are already the Oneness. God is 'you' are.
The Self is ever present camouflaged as me, myself and 'I'. Individuality doesn't exist. There is only the One Infinite Self present in all, as all selves.

You, being the Self want to know how to attain the Self...
At one stage you will laugh at yourself for trying to discover the Self.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Being yourself is being the Self all along. 'I' is the Infinite Self itself, 'I' is pure awareness itself and 'I' is the eternal Reality hidden in plain view.
All along the Self you Seek to know and have been looking for far and away as something new, has always been you very own everyday familiar self.

Isn't it funny, the common ordinary everyday 'you' or 'I' you believe is bound or a finite self is in fact the Infinite Self or God. A strange paradox.
Like a fish in the water, crying that he is thirsty. Thou Art That. There never was a small 'I' or ego, that is the illusion to see through.

The final Realization is when you laugh at yourself by realizing that me, myself and 'I' is the Infinite Self itself, just this and nothing else.
There never was a small 'I', a finite self or ego present in you at any time, you have always been the Self all along, you simply didn't realize it.

The Guru cannot give you anything new, which you don’t have already.
Removal of the notion that we have not realised the Self, is all that is required.
We are always the Self, only we don’t realise it.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Call off the Search! That is the Open Secret to Freedom, you are already Free. That is the simple truth about so called 'Enlightenment'.
There is no bondage at all. You have never been apart from the Reality, the Self or the Infinite and have ever been bound but by ignorance only.

Wisdom is Freedom. Remove ignorance about your real identity, get to know your own self to already be the Infinite Self.
The eternal or God is 'I' and 'I' is God, God is 'I' am. Same, same. 'I' am that 'I' am is God. The 'I' is the Infinite Self.
Know the Truth! That the 'I' is the One without a second, who is not aware of himself?

You are present or 'I' is this present awareness.
No one can deny one's own self and negate being, 'I' exist is certain.

After all, to know the Self or God is so easy, look at yourself here and now.
Are you dead or alive? The Self is the unseen presence of consciousness or existence present in the body.
God or the Self is Life itself. Your body is just a temple for this living presence of intelligence i.e. consciousness or Life.

'I' is this unchanging living-ness or pure existence expressing itself as plain, common to all everyday awareness. 'I' and awareness are One.
Experience directly everyday by everyday alive as pure changeless being, as common wakefulness, as pure unchanging awareness.

Know the Truth about yourself.
Know the Truth about 'I' and the Truth shall set you Free!

Understanding, Realizing is knowing one's true identity. There is no becoming anything new or special. Just knowing oneself is Freedom.
Waiting for Freedom, worshipping others to be the Self or God, believing in special Buddhas and Enlightened Jnanis is death.

How can you ever know the real Truth about your own self from dishonest pointers, from self-appointed Gurus or so called Jnanis
Beware of special beings and Enlightened Gurus, Sages and Jnanis, most of them are truly liars. They will keep Seekers on a path to nowhere.

Wisdom is to know the truth! Kill the Mother F*#$% Guru, forget these people that are holy and special.
If you know a Guru, if you met a Guru and believe that person is a special being or Buddha, Kill Him!

Now realize that if the Guru is already dead and you worship dead Gurus, even worse.
The past is dead. These people are not coming back to help you anyhow and they are no longer concerned about themselves!
Simply because after they die, they are all gone back to zero! Just like when a wave collapses and dissipates back into the Ocean.

Why worship the dead? That is only attachment to illusion. After all if they came and went, they are gone now.
How could what come and what go be the eternal or the permanent?

Realize that the graveyard or a box of ashes or pictures of dead people cannot help you realize this simple truth about yourself.
For Freedom is what is happening naturally this very moment with you, existence and awareness of being is the experience presently.

This very moment of existence is Freedom. Reality is within your own dwelling, it is pure awareness of being, it is 'I' am.

The experience is always here and now. Consciousness is one's own self and being. 'I' exist is this present-awareness.
This very moment of undeniable existence is the Self, that is the Reality. Just this and nothing else.

Realize that the past is dead and cannot help you, let it all go to hell or heaven, because it only existence in your imagination, forget about it.
Get to know 'I' am right now, that is all. Nothing else is required for Freedom. Know Thyself first and foremost and forget illusion or others.

Dump the Guru! Forget these people and understand that 'you' yourself already are the Real Self you Seek to know. Gee! yoU aRe yoU.
You are awareness itself. The Reality, He or the Self is truly your own self here and now. Awareness is another name for you right now.

The one believes they have seen the Self or God, sat with Self or God or felt God's presence are ignorant fools.
The ignorant worships illusion foolishly believing the finger to be the moon, that is called 'bhakti' and will simply die ignorant of the Self.
On the other hand, the wise understands and sees the dream as a dream, that knowledge of the Self is called 'Jnana' or direct understanding.

The ignorant doesn't know himself so he will turn outside himself and will worship and prayer to illusion, to a changing dream for Reality.
Praying, worshipping others, waiting for God is the 'ants way' or long blind path of devotion to person, place or thing or ignorance.

The Self you seek to know is truly your self. Your supposed ignorance causes you needless grief
like that of the ten foolish men who grieved at the loss of the tenth man, who was never lost.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

How foolish! Freedom is already here, turn within. Have a look at yourself and see. And you will laugh at yourself for trying to discover the Self.
The fastest way for Freedom is to remove the false notion of being bound. Understanding is Freedom, not waiting or becoming anything.

Who waits for Freedom dies ignorant, take it for granted! Understanding alone is the direct way or 'bird's way', direct understanding is Freedom.
Not waiting to acquire Freedom tomorrow or becoming anything new or special. But knowing the simple Truth about one's own self here and now.
Realizing that to be your self is to be the Infinite Self itself. Never lost or apart from oneself, but simply being oneself is being the Infinite Self.

Understanding is Wisdom. Wisdom is Freedom.
After all, only ignorance is bondage, how else can you get rif of ignorance?

Realisation is not the acquisition of anything new, nor is it a new faculty.
It is only removal of all camouflage.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~


Know the Truth! Freedom was never about becoming the Infinite Self or anything new or special.
But ALL and ONLY about removing any false notion or wrong acquired knowledge that 'you' yourself are not the Infinite Self already.
Remove the 'veil' of  ignorance by understanding only, have a clue to what 'I' or 'I' am truly represents. Then you know the Truth. That is all.

Remove all camouflage. Get to know the real ever present unchanging 'you', that paradoxically you have always known yourself to be!
Know yourself. Who are you? Do you know yourself? Do you know what does 'I' represents or who am 'I'?
Did you know that to know Thyself is to know Freedom?

The ultimate Truth is so simple. You are IT.
That is all Freedom is truly all about, all about 'I' or 'you'. Be still and know that 'I' is Existence or God. 'You' are that literally.
No two selves ever existed, you are already the Oneness itself. To know Freedom, look at your own self, look at 'I' or 'I' am you have always known.

After all, the only clue you have is that 'I' is present here and now is certain. You know that you are. There isn't anyone who doesn't know and say 'I'.
Everybody is always aware of his own being. Everybody knows 'I' is present as simply being one's own familiar undeniable everyday self.
Look at your self, look at your own being. You know that 'you' are present and you like it. Look at that 'I' exist or 'I' am-ness you know.

You are that, you are He, you are the eternal Self this very moment. Awareness is another name for 'I' or 'you'.
That is the 'Moon' being pointed to by the 'Finger'. 'I' and the Self, awareness or God are the same self, same being and presence of existence.

Never far away but closer to you than your own breath.
That is what non-duality or oneness is all about, all about your very own self itself.
That is the Secret to Freedom. There is no bondage.

After all, no one can ever exist apart from the Self. The Self or God is simply one's natural state of being. What else did you expected it to be?
Unbroken 'I' or constant being-ness or 'I' am-ness. 'I' is pure changeless being or 'I' is That i.e. Thou Art That!
The Infinite Self is this pure awareness of being common to all, simply being oneself is being it. It is 'I' am.

Everybody knows the Infinite eternal Self so well already as one's own everyday self or 'I'.
Everybody is always the Self, they simply don't realize it. One foolishly believes that 'I' is a finite self limited to the body.

Everybody experiences the Self directly everyday as 'I', as simply being oneself or present-awareness. The Self is another name for 'I' or 'you'.
Reality is common existence, common consciousness, common being-ness and 'I'. Same, same. You are the One.
The Self is 'I' exist, the Self is 'I' am present. 'I' and the Self or God or the Reality or the Oneness or
whatever name you want to call this awareness of being present as oneself are One.

Who is not aware of himself?

No one can deny being present as 'I' or oneself and negate one's own being.
Everybody knows 'I' because everybody knows that they are. 'I' exist, 'I' am is certain.
Freedom is very easy. If you want to know the Infinite Self or God, find out who 'I' truly is.

Remove ignorance. Understanding is Realizing. Understanding is all. Then you have done all that needed to be done for Freedom.
After all, you yourself are the Self, how can you attain the Self? Not knowing this simple truth is the trap of ignorance and the only bondage.

The state we call Realisation is simply being oneself.
Not knowing anything or becoming anything.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

If you want to know God. If knowing yourself is your earnest desire, you must kill the holy Guru, kill the Buddha.
There is no room for God, the Guru and you in Omni-presence, the one that comes and goes is simply the false or illusion.
Don't be fooled by appearances! See the false as false and the one always eternally Free, remains present and self-revealed as the Reality.

Enticing duality and separation. The false self-appointed Guru will point the ignorant Seeker to believe that the 'I' is a small self, ego or finite self.
The true Guru will not estrange you from yourself and tell you the simple Truth about yourself, about 'I'! That the 'I' is not different from the 'Lord'.
Who is not aware of himself? Know the truth that the 'I' is the Self. Call off the Search. You are the Self, you are already that.

You are the One without the second.
You are the Oneness already. How can the 'I' or awareness see itself? 'I' and awareness are One. Same, same. No difference.
There is no small self, small 'I' or ego present in you. There never was any other self present with you but the One 'I'.
No separation, no duality, you already are the Self. 'I' is that or 'you' are that right now. God is 'I' am.

Ego is not!
Otherwise do you admit of two selves?

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

lotus_red4.jpg (1041 bytes)

Freedom is when you finally come to the simple realization that all along the Self you have been searching for,
was not something new or some spiritual goal that is far away. But paradoxically closer to you than your own breath.
The Self you have been Seeking is truly yourself, just as you are right here and now. You are that. There is no reaching or becoming anything.
God is that 'I' or 'I' am you have always known yourself to be.

That is the Secret of the ages. Wisdom is Freedom, ignorance is bondage.
Like hiding a this precious Jewel closer than close to yourself. You will only laugh at yourself, for trying to discover the Self.
You are already the Self. Reality is always present within your own dwelling. There is no bondage and there is no liberation.

That is the cosmic joke and Freedom from all bondage, to get to know yourself is to know God.
Not becoming anything new. Just knowing who you are.
Who is 'I'? Know your own self. That is all.

Who am 'I'?
After all, the only fact you are sure of is that you are. 'I' am is certain.
~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

While some ignorant self-appointed Gurus will try to convince Seekers that there is no one present and that they don't exist.
Be wise! Look at your own self and realize the Truth about yourself, about 'I', that you are that presence of existence itself and this Oneness.
You are that knowing that you are. You cannot negate being. You are that 'I' am you know so well already, nothing was ever lost.

You simply overlooked the most obvious. That which is so near and so dear.
That which always is present with you. What you have always been and are, your very own self.
Know the Truth, that 'I' and consciousness are One. 'I' is the Self you seek to know, know yourself to be the Self.

So near and so dear the Self is simply being oneself, not becoming anything. You are that, means you are IT. Ego is not.
Ignorant people will only look away from the Self, even self-appointed Gurus will point Seekers away from this simple Truth.

Wisdom is to realize that if you see a Buddha on the Road, kill him, because it is a fraud. You cannot find Reality outside yourself anyhow.
Know the Truth, there is no such thing as Satsang, nothing to be freshly acquired from others. Gurus are only for Show, spiritual carrots for hire.
There never will be anything new to be acquired for Freedom. No matter how hard the self-appointed Guru tries to convince you that there is.

There is no goal to be reached. There is nothing to be attained.
You are the Self . You exist always.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~


Many will use the usual carrots, peace, love, and happiness.
Realize that he or she is only trying to sell you water by the river, just this and nothing else.
After all, can you buy happiness? Can you buy love? Can you buy the Self, God or Freedom? Funny paradox.


Don't be a blind sheep or a fool. If you are asked to reach for your wallet for Freedom, then action speaks louder than words. You are a Sucker.
Some spiritual Teachers only pretend that there is something to reach or something to attain when in fact there never was, and there never will.
Many spiritual people wearing white robes, taking on holy names and looking religious or 'Enlightened' don't even know themselves, what to do!

The experience is here and now. One cannot deny one’s own self.
Existence is the same as happiness and happiness is the same as being.
Why should one seek it?

~ Ramana Maharshi ~


You are egoless. There is no God and 'you'. There are not 'two' of you, there is only you as the Self. You are the Oneness.
You are the Infinite Self itself or the Reality simply being you, just as you are right now. That is all.
You exist not apart from God, but in fact your very existence is the Divine. You exist always.

To know yourself to be the eternal Self is real happiness. That is to know the true Beloved that will never leave you.
To know yourself to be the Self is bliss, the joy it brings you to know your immortal true nature is beyond anything you can imagine.
Real happiness is not a state to be freshly acquired, it is pure being. Existence is the bliss of the Self, just this and nothing else.

'I' exist is the Self, that knowing that you are is pure awareness of being. The Self or God is that 'I' am you know so well already as your own being.
Again me, myself and 'I' is not a finite individual self or ego, but in fact the Infinite. Know who 'I' am represent. Freedom is to know your own self.
What else is there to know for Freedom, have a look and see. Take a look at yourself and you have found the Self, the Reality or God.


Existence is being. 'I' am is the Infinite Self and yourself. There isn't anyone who doesn't say 'I' am. Everybody knows and says 'I' am.
To be or not to be? 'I' am or 'I' am not? Can you negate your own existence and honestly say 'I' don't exist, 'I' am not?
Can you negate your own self, can you void it? Can you honestly say 'I' know for certain 'I' don't exist,
'I' am absolutely certain that 'I' am not present right here and now?

Paradoxically if you are honest with yourself, aren't you aware of the opposite? The Truth is that the only fact you are sure of is that you are.
'I' exist is certain. The only fact you are absolutely sure of, that doesn't come and go anywhere but always undeniably remains present with you,
is the fact of your own being. 'I' am is always with you.

That is the experience itself, knowing that you are present is being the Self itself. 'I' am is pure awareness, pure changeless being. 'I' am is God.
You cannot see your own existence apart from you, because you are the One. You cannot see yourself or kiss yourself, only be what you are, yourself.

Why do self-appointed Gurus lie to their disciples by telling them that they don't exist? Who knows, money, ignorance, gratification most likely.
No one can deny one's own existence, negate one's own being because it is the Self, that is what 'I' represent, pure awareness of being.
The Self is not reached, you are the Self itself this very moment, it is another name for 'you'. You are the One without two.

No one denies one’s own existence
any more than one denies one’s eyes, although one cannot see them.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

No Guru, no Saint or Jnani has ever acquired anything new, spiritual or special to call Reality and Freedom.
For Freedom, Reality or the Self is not something that you don't already have.
In fact you have always known the Self so well your entire Life.

Don't fall into a trap of acquisition.
The Self is not the acquisition of anything new at all, you can only recognized yourself as being this pure awareness itself.
The Truth is not acquired from others or from any spiritual books. It doesn't matter what you do. Turn within instead. The Kingdom is in you.
That is the only place you can discover the Self. Not as something new, but ever present within your own dwelling as your very own self, that is all.


You, being the Self already cannot attain the Self, it is impossible! You cannot become what you already are.
Therefore why striving to reach what you already are this very moment? Ignorance is the only obstacle.
Realize that no amount of effort can help you reach the Self. The effort alone is the bondage itself.

You may end up meeting some self-appointed Gurus on your path, that may entice you to keep quiet or silent, to remain ignorant.
To discourage you from understanding, not to ask questions but to destroy them. To discourage you from knowing this simple Truth for yourself.
For the self-appointed Guru knows that once you have seen the false as false, illusion will never fool you again.

Realize the Truth. Freedom was never the acquisition of anything new, special or spiritual.
But only the removal of the false notion of being bound, of being anything other than the Self itself.

For Freedom is not something to be freshly acquired, but paradoxically what you have always been and are.

The honest person who is not a self-appointed Guru and wants nothing for himself, especially money. Will only say what I am saying now.
He will not tell you anything different than this. He knows you need nothing at all. You are already the Self, He is your very own self here and now.
Omni-presence. No two selves ever existed, only One presence of existence is present in all. God is present as one's own self and being.

After all, who is not aware of himself? The Self, consciousness, God is always present with you anyhow. Common to all, it is 'I' am.
No one ever fails to experience the Self, the Reality or God. Inseparable, indivisible. No one can deny his own being, 'I' exist, 'I' am is certain.

Consciousness is indeed always with us.
Everybody knows 'I' am. No one can deny his own being.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Who am 'I'? To know yourself, to know 'I' am is to know this Oneness, the eternal and the Kingdom of God.
Ultimate Truth remains the same, it is timeless, eternal and always unchanging.
'I' is the 'Lord', 'I' and the 'Father' are One. That is the ultimate Truth!
The Truth is you.

lotus_red4.jpg (1041 bytes)

Realize that nobody is ever born religious. Buddha wasn't born Buddhist.
People create religions afterwards, basically after this simple message of Oneness or non-duality.
The problem is that this message is quickly forgotten and people start to worship the messenger, that is the only mistake.
They have forgotten the wisdom of the wise, that the finger pointing at the moon is not the moon. Therefore they always miss the moon.

The Kingdom is in you. And if you know yourself then you know the Kingdom of God.
~ Jesus of Nazareth ~

To know your own self is to know the Self or God. Always turn within.
That is the same message shared throughout the ages by the wise. Know Thyself.
Find out who am 'I'? And you will discover that 'I' and the 'Father' are One, same same, no difference.

God is the unseen Mystery we call Life, existence is the Divine. Therefore the Kingdom is in you! Macrocosm, microcosm.
God, the Self, He, the Reality is simply the presence of awareness that you have always known so well as your own being, as 'I' am.
'I' am is God. God is Life itself. Not a person, a place or thing, but no-thing. Existence is consciousness and that is the eternal, you are that.
Reality has always been present within your own dwelling. To know God or the Self, turn within toward your own self and being. Toward 'I' am.

The Self, Reality, God is not some place far away, but paradoxically ever present here and now in you. Know yourself and you know the Oneness.
Who am 'I'? Instead of seeking the Self as something new, take a closer look at your own self and get to know you. You are what you Seek.
You are always the Self, awareness is just another name for 'you', you cannot be anything else anyhow. You simply don't realize it.

Everybody is already awake! The Self is simply common everyday awareness. Just this and nothing else.
Realize that the natural everyday activity of being cognizant is simply being awake and therefore aware i.e. aware-ness.
The natural effortless everyday activity of being aware is being awake, both are One. Wakefulness is awareness and that alone is the Self.

Just be aware that you are and remain aware. You are aware anyhow, you need not try to be.
~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

Aren't you aware? If your answer is yes of course, 'I' am aware.
You are undeniably aware of being. Present-awareness. That is IT! You are awake, you are aware and therefore need not try to be.

No one can give you what you already are. Awareness is what is sought-after as the Reality or the Self and being aware is being this Reality itself.
The activity of being aware and to remain aware all day effortlessly is to be awake or wakefulness and that is the constant knowing that you are.

The Self is present here and now.
Look at yourself! Are you conscious? Are you aware?
You know that you are present this very moment, 'I' am is certain?

That is IT, that is the Self. LAUGH! That is all there is to realize, simply that you are aware.
This aware-ness or activity of knowing that you are present or awareness of being present is your true nature.
You are that! You are this undeniable presence of awareness itself. Awareness is just another name for 'I' or 'you'.

Ultimate Truth is so simple, it is so easy and yet only a rare few undestand this simplicity. A strange paradox.

Present-awareness. The Self, He or the Reality is the constant knowing that you are present. Awareness of being, common to all. It is 'I' am.
Realize that the difference between being unconscious and unaware of being present as oneself and being conscious, awake and aware is the Self.
The Self is pure awareness of being. It is that 'I' am you know or the knowing that you are present as yourself here and now.
That is all the fuss is about. All about being aware. Present-awareness or awareness of being present is bliss of the Self.

Know the Truth! To be alive is to be the Self.
There is no spiritual goal to be reached, there is nothing to attain.
God is Life, one's own self and being here and now is the Divine. That is all there is to it.
To simply be aware is to be the Self. To simply be conscious is to be the Self. To simply be oneself is to be the Self.
Who is not aware of himself, who is not aware of being present? You undeniably know that you are. 'I' am is certain.

The state we call Realisation is simply being oneself. Not knowing anything or becoming anything.
~ Ramana Maharshi ~

That is all there is to understand or realize. Here and now you are that literally, awareness is simply being you!
The Self is not about keeping silent or quiet, not about stopping thoughts or trying to reach some spiritual goal that is far away.


Only false self-appointed Gurus give practices to the ignorant Seekers to be performed to keep them on a Seeking path to nowhere.
Know the Truth, self-appointed Gurus need the ignorant Seeker to remain ignorant, their very own survival and lifestyle depends on it.

The true Guru will not estrange you from yourself.
He knows you need nothing, not even him, and is never tired of reminding you.
But the self-appointed Guru is more concerned with himself than with his disciples.

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~


The Self is pure awareness and you are that unchanging awareness itself right here and now. Take a look and see! Get to know the real you.
Look at your own self, right now you are that. Your very own self is the Real Self, you are the One without a second already and have always been.
You are already Real-'I'-zed! Understanding this alone is the Realization, you have always been this consciousness, this Oneness and ever-Free.

Like a deer caught in the headlights, people are stunned when they hear this simple Truth.
Many cannot accept that there is nothing new to get whatsoever. Some people even go up in arms screaming.
Yet that is all this message of non-duality is all about, people are only trying to attain what they have always been and are.

We are imagining we are bound and are making various, strenuous attempts to become free.
We will be surprised that we were frantically trying to attain something, which we have always been and are.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

People want to talk about 'mind', striving to go beyond the 'mind' to reach awareness etc.
Why not investigate what is 'mind'? Thoughts! Therefore what 'mind' is there if you don't think about it?
Have a look and see! What remains present if you pause thoughts? Consciousness or pure awareness itself remains present.

Try it, prove it to yourself, get to know your thoughtless true nature. Just be still for a few moments and realize that you are what remains present.
You are present without any thoughts present, you are this unchanging present-awareness itself. You remain present as pure awareness itself.
You are always present beyond the 'mind' anyhow, always been present and unchanging as awareness, as the Reality, as the 'knower'.
Be still and know that you are that! What can be any easier than that? You are this presence of unchanging awareness itself.

Freedom was never about going anywhere and overcoming anything. You are already pure awareness and you have always been the Self.
You are already beyond the 'mind' this very moment and there is no 'ego' to get rid of, you are always eternally Free. Remove ignorance only.
Only the dualistic idea that there is such a thing as  a 'mind' or 'ego' to overcome is the only bondage,

like a mirage of water in the desert, just a false notion that must be removed with investigation.
That false belief or false dualistic notion is the only cause of all mischief.

Sought-after Truth is found, by not seeking it.
~ Longchen-pa ~

Just like no amount of effort can help you reach the Self, in fact making any effort for Freedom is paradoxically bondage.
Did you know that if you pay money to buy Truth, you are in fact only getting ignorance? It is all a paradox and works in reverse.
The wise knows it, the ignorant doesn't and this is the simple Truth self-appointed Gurus don't want you to know. The Secret of the trade.

When you are sick and tired of looking for Freedom far away from you, then you give that up and simply turn within toward your own self.
You start to get to know your very own familiar self instead and realize that the Self is simply that 'I' am you have always known yourself to be.
You are and have always been the Self you have been looking for all along, not knowing this simple Truth is the only trouble.
There is nothing new to reach, to attain or to become, you are already the Self, you are already that.

Obviously if I had something to sell to the ignorant, I would play the Guru and sell water by the River.
But I know you are already awareness itself. What can I give you that you don't already have?

You must take a look and see for yourself if what I am saying is true.
Who are you really? Are you the changing body or are you the unseen presence of awareness, living-ness or 'I' am-ness in the body?

Know yourself! Find out who you truly are. Simply discern between what always is present and unchanging or permanent and the transient.

Awareness is not a transient thought. Awareness doesn't come and go anywhere, it is pure changeless being, it is 'knowing' that you are.
To be awake or wakeful is to be aware and remain aware all day long, that natural activity of being conscious is the natural state of being
and that unchanging present-awareness is to be the Self, it is 'I' am. That is all there is to it, so simple you can only laugh at the joke of it all.

The only trouble is that everybody wants to know the Self and yet they don't want the ultimate Truth to be so simple, what to do!
Everybody knows the Self so well already! After all, who is not aware of himself? Everybody knows 'I' am.

The Self, He, the Reality, the Atman, God is simple changeless being. What does 'being' represent?
Existence is being. Being is knowing that you are. Being is 'I' am. The Self is simply one's own self and being.
One's own undeniable existence here and now is itself the Self, known to all as pure awareness of being. Known to all as 'I' am.

If you don't understand this consciousness itself, then you are in bondage
when you will understand what this is, then that is liberation.
Paradoxically you will realize that you are already liberated.

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

There is no reaching the Self. Understanding what is being pointed to as one's thoughtless true nature, that you must do.
Never apart, nothing else is required. Understanding what this consciousness being directly pointed to truly is, is all that is necessary for Freedom.

Why postpone? Who waits for Freedom dies ignorant.
It is impossible to acquire anything new. If you don't wish to know or understand this consciousness, then you will never know the Self.
Even though you are already that this very moment and have always been this consciousness itself, you simply don't realize it.

If there is a will, then there is a way. You must want to know this, you must want to understand this consciousness.
If not, no one can help you realize it. If you sit there waiting in silence year after year, nothing will ever happen.
For understanding this consciousness or what this is, is the Realization. That is what Freedom is all about.
Ignorance is bondage. Understanding is the Realization.

Never far away, but paradoxically closer than close, remove ignorance. Understand what the Self or consciousness truly is.
The Self is simply the natural effortless common everyday activity of being conscious or consciousness. That is all, just this and nothing else.
Everybody knows this consciousness present as 'I' am present, same presence, same existence, same being. You are that, that is one's true nature.

All there is ever-present with oneself as oneself, is this presence of consciousness that is known to all as 'I' am, you are this Oneness.
Obviously is you desire Reality to be some blazing light, you will not see it. Understanding this consciousness is itself Freedom.
This consciousness is pure awareness of being, this consciousness is that 'I' am you know. This alone is the Real 'you'.

After all, isn't that undeniable knowing that you are present or present-awareness, always with you?
Can you ever admit to yourself that you don't exist right now, that in fact you are not alive but you are dead?
Of course not, no one can deny his own being. 'I' exist is certain and that pure awareness of being needs no proof.

You cannot fail for a moment to experience the Self. You know that you are and you like it. Everybody knows 'I' exist and loves to be.
Existence is happiness and happiness is being. Being alive and aware here and now is the experience.
Consciousness is the real presence of existence and one's eternal true nature.

Reality is at once being and consciousness.
The Supreme Being, the One ultimate cause of the universe manifest himself as many which do not exist apart from him...
There is no one who even for a moment fails to experience the Self. For no one admits that he ever stands apart from the Self...
Realization is nothing to be gained afresh, it is already there. All that is necessary is to get rid of the thought 'I' have not realized.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~


The Self is not something apart from you. He is yourself. If you look for it you are only looking away from it.
The Self is nothing new or different with you. You yourself are the One without two. Consciousness is just another name for you.

The Self is the plain good ol' you. Know the simple Truth about your common everyday self, that me, myself and 'I' is the Infinite Self.
You are this Oneness already, there is no duality, there is no separation, there is no 'ego' or 'mind' to overcome for Reality to be.

There is no difference whatsoever between one's own everyday familiar self and the Supreme Being. Same being-ness or presence of existence.
See the false as false! No two selves ever existed. There is no bondage and there is no liberation. There is no separation from the Self. You are that.
There is no duality, you are the Self already. The Self is simply being yourself. You are already that simply being 'you'.

One believes that there is bondage and therefore seeks liberation.
But the fact is that there is no bondage but only Liberation.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

People habitually label consciousness as this or that, calling pure consciousness or the Self 'mind' or 'ego'. Give it names is the trouble.
Yet if you inquire and look for them, neither 'mind' or 'ego' will be found. Because they never existed to begin with, just a false notion. Nothing else.
That is all bondage, separation and duality is, just a false notion, that is all. See the false as false. You are already eternally Free, just being yourself.

Understanding this Oneness is to realize that there is not you and the Self, but only you are present as the Self right now, duality doesn't exist.
You are He, you are that this very moment, just the way you are. That is the paradox. Bondage never existed. One only believes that there is.
Just a false idea of separation one has about oneself. Ignorance about one's real identity, is the only problem.

All sentient beings are essentially 'Buddhas'.As with water and ice, there is no ice without water.
Not knowing how close the truth is, we seek it far away.

What a pity!

~ Hakuin Ekaku Zenji ~

There is no becoming or reaching the Self. To know the Self is to know yourself. Know who am 'I' really? That is all. You cannot be anything else.
All you have to do is to remove any acquired concepts that make you falsely believe that you are not the Self already, 'I' is the Self itself, 'I' is God.
You already are the Oneness. Not knowing this simple Truth about oneself is itself the false notion of being bound or apart from the Oneness.

Realize that the you, that you believe to be a finite self and that wants to know the Self, is in fact the Infinite Self already.
You being the Self cannot become the Self. Simply realize or recognize that to simply be yourself is to be the Self.
To know yourself is to know the Self. Realize that Reality or the Self and your own everyday self are One.
That is the Real-'I'-zation.

The feeling that 'I' have not realised is the obstruction to realisation.
In fact it is already realised, there is nothing more to be realised.
~ Ramana Maharshi ~

The Realization that 'I' is the Self is the end of the Search! Everybody knows 'I' exist, 'I' am present and therefore awareness of being is certain.
Know the truth about 'I', that 'I' or your own self is the Reality you have been Seeking to find, simply because you falsely believe Reality was lost.
Remove ignorance about  your own self or 'I'. You are that, 'I' is that is the realization.

Who is not aware of himself? Who doesn't say 'I' all day long? Everybody knows the Self. Everybody knows 'I' is present, 'I' am is certain.
Get to know your own every day familiar self and there is nothing more realize. 'I' is that! You are already there. You are that right here and now.

Look at your own self! Who sees this? 'I' do.
Who hears this? 'I' do. Who is undeniably present to be aware of this or that? 'I' am.

'I' is the only presence of awareness present in you. 'I' is the Real Self, the One without two, there is none other.
'I' is at once the Infinite Self, your own familiar self and the knower, the thinker, the seer, the hearer, the so called 'witness' of all things.

Whatever natural activities you are undeniably aware of effortlessly, He or the Self it the only 'knower' present to be aware of all. It is yourself.
The imperishable Self is simply that 'I' am you know so well as 'you'. Gee! yoU aRe yoU. 'I' am is the goal of the Search and final Reality.
You are the destination you have never left, being yourself has always been the Reality. Call off the Search.

He is the unseen seer, the unheard hearer, the unthought thinker.
There is no other seer but He. No other hearer but He. No other thinker but He. No other knower but He.
He is yourself. The inner controller, the immortal, the imperishable.

~ Brihadaranyaka Upanishad~

'I' is the Infinite Self itself, that is all. Like a King that forgets his true identity and falsely believe himself to be a beggar.
There never was a small 'I' or individual 'I' present but only the Infinite 'I' or big 'I' ever-present in all, as all.

One's own being is the Supreme Being, same, same, there is only One presence of existence manifesting itself as many.
Therefore every time you are aware of being present or 'I' is present, it is in fact the Infinite Self that is present and aware of being.


To simply be alive naturally, to exist is to be 'Enlightened' so to speak. The Self is pure awareness of being, one's own existence is itself God.
The experience is always present here and now and cannot be negated, existence is the core of one's being, the Self is 'I' exist, God is 'I' am.

No one can deny one's own self, no one can say 'I' don't exist and negate being present. Everybody knows that they are present, 'I' exist is certain.
Being oneself naturally is always being the Self, there never was any separation from the eternal, from existence, Life is itself the Oneness.
Know that 'I' am is God, Life, existence, consciousness. 'I' exist is the One without two. There never was two selves or two 'I', only One.

Who is not aware of himself? Everybody says 'I' all day long, therefore everybody knows that they are present, that they exist.
No one ever fails to experience existence or the Self not even for an instant, 'I' am is always with you.
Present-awareness. You know that you are, 'I' exist is certain and you like it.
No one can negate his own self and say 'I' don't exist.
That alone is the Self, 'I' is IT or you are that.

One's own existence or being is the Self. Understanding this is itself the realization. 'I' am is the goal and final Reality. 'I' and the 'Father are One.
'I' is the Infinite Self. 'I' is already Real-'I'-zed. 'I' is that! 'I' is not different from the Lord. There is nothing else to realize.
You are that, you are He this very moment, the Self is simply being yourself. That is all.
That is the Open Secret to Freedom, realize that you were never bound.

To understand this is to remove the false notion of being bound and that is the short cut to Freedom. That is the Realization.
Some call this direct understanding or realization the 'bird's way', the fastest way to realize the Truth about oneself.

God is the Self. 'I' am is God... Know the Truth that the 'I' is not different from the Lord.
Seeing God or the Self is only being the Self or yourself... The Self you Seek to know is truly yourself.

Your supposed ignorance causes you needless grief like that of the ten foolish men
who grieved at the lost of the tenth man, who was never lost.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

You could ask why do people wear white robes, looking special and holy, staring at people in the eyes pretending to transmit Grace or Freedom?
Some people like to play the holy Guru or Master of illusion to entice the ignorant Seeker in chasing spiritual and religious concepts and beliefs.
Who knows why people do what they do? It is all illusion and only for show anyhow, for entertainment. Ask them! Find out why, why not?

You must be wise and see the false as false. Realize that illusion is always ready to embrace you. Appearance will fool you!
Self-appointed Gurus always have a fascinating story to tell their disciples about becoming enlightened. Many even write books about it.

Know the Truth! Freedom is not the acquisition of anything new or a special faculty. It is so obvious, simple, you just laugh at yourself, that is all.
Nothing changes, no super powers, no faculty of transmitting grace, nothing holy or new is freshly acquired that you don't already have right now.
Only ignorance is removed with understanding, that is all Freedom is truly all about. You gain zero, just ignorance is dropped, nothing else.

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

Freedom is to simply know the Truth! That Life doesn't know death.
One's very own undeniable existence here and now is the eternal, that is all.

That is the fundamental of all religions. This message is always the Same. Nothing new under the Sun. You are the imperishable Self.
Know that the Spirit of Life doesn't die, your body is God's temple and the Spirit of Life in it is the immortal Self or the Spirit of Life itself. Reality.
You are that, you are He, Life is eternal or eternal Life, not to worry. What dies is not you, only the fleshly body goes back to the five elements.
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. The Spirit lives on, nothing happens to consciousness, to existence or one's true nature because it is eternal.

You wander restlessly from forest to forest while the Reality is within your own dwelling.
~ Kabir ~

The Self is the Father and the Son, non-duality or Oneness. There is only One presence of existence, One consciousness.
The Self is the Supreme, the unseen Spirit of Life itself, known to all as 'I' am. The Kingdom is in you. Know yourself and you know the Oneness.
Everybody knows the Reality, the Self, the eternal, the Oneness or consciousness so well already as one's own self, as 'I' am.

For whoever seeks God in some special way, will gain the way and lose God who is hidden in the way.
But whoever seeks God without any special way, finds Him as He really is...

He is Life itself.

~ Meister Eckhart ~

Present-awareness.
No one can negate being present, awareness of being is 'I' am.
The Self is not reached. Consciousness is always present as one's own being.
The ultimate Truth is that there is no such thing as 'Enlightenment' or 'self-Realization'.

Only religious myths and stories to entice the ignorant Seekers to chase after Gurus, priests, religious doctrines and superstitions turning
many ignorant Seekers into foolish worshippers and blinded believers into flying monkeys, that believe anything without investigating what is real.
They are so hypnotized to foolishly believe that they have read the Truth in a book or sat with the Truth. That ignorance is called programming.

Ultimate Truth will never be found in any books, or ever acquired from others. The Self is not transmitted and all that non-sense. Closer than close.
God is Life itself, the Truth is what is happening right here and now naturally. Look at yourself! The Self is pure awareness being. That is IT!

There is no reaching the Self.
If the Self were to be reached, it would mean that the Self is not here and now and that it is yet to be obtained.
What is got afresh will also be lost. So it will be impermanent. What is not permanent is not worth striving for.
So I say the Self is not reached. You are the Self, you are already that.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~


You are aware because you know that you are. So simple! Why striving to reached what you already are this very moment i.e. here and now?
Trying to become or attain anything new is the only trouble. Because awareness is 'you'. There is no becoming what you already are here and now.
It is impossible! Only understanding that to simply be aware is to be the Self, you are that present-awareness itself. That is all.

Who is not aware of himself? Know 'I' am, realize that 'I' exist, 'I' am is God.

Consciousness is indeed always with us. Everybody knows 'I' am.
No one can deny his own being.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~


The Self is pure being. You know that you are alive and you like it, that is all what pure awareness or the Self truly is. The Self is 'I' or 'I' am.
One's very own existence here and now is itself the Divine. There is nothing to be attained or to be reached, you are that life essence itself.
There is no 'ego' or 'mind' to kill or overcome, there never was. People only imagine that there is, look for it and see if you can find it.

The Self is not something to be acquired from others.
All that is necessary is to know its existence in you.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Self-appointed Gurus will entice the ignorant Seeker to foolishly believe that they have to be in the presence of the 'Enlightened' ones.
But know the Truth! There is no such thing as 'Enlightenment', there is no bondage and therefore there is no liberation.
The believer or foolish Seekers are only sold water by the River, the self-appointed Guru knows it,
the ignorant worshipper and follower doesn't and believes the false to be true.

Remove ignorance! Know the simple Truth, there is nothing to get whatsoever and there is no 'Enlightenment' to be reached.
There never was! You are awareness itself already. The only place self-appointed Gurus and preachers want you to reach, is inside your wallet.
They are the ones laughing at the joke of it all and all the way to the Bank. Nothing else.

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

Awareness or the Self is no-thing.
Freedom from all bondage is to simply realize this simple Truth, that every-thing is this no-thing.

People always cry over nothing. Freedom has nothing to do with psychological suffering or self-improvement.
If you are looking for psychological relief from what is happening in your life. Lacking this or that, have and have not.
If you are not content with simply being alive and you want more, then go see a therapist. They will listen to your problems.

Freedom is to see the false as false. The dream as a dream.
That is all. Then nothing is wrong anymore.

Love all or none of it and stop complaining.
When you have seen the dream as a dream, you have done all that needs to be done.

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

If you are crying why your wife left you for the milk man or why this person died or why these terrible things are happening in the world.
Well it is just the way it is, it is the play of consciousness, it is God's will. This Leela, illusion or dream is always going to be impermanent anyhow.
Everything and everyone no matter whom or what must eventually disappear. Take it for granted, nothing ever remains.

The nature of a dream is to be transient, that is all.
Attachment to the impermanent or illusion is the only cause of suffering.

As the saying goes; before enlightenment I suffer and after enlightenment I suffer.
Once it was falsely believed to be a problem to get rid of, now there is no problem with suffering at all, it is just what is.
This too shall pass!
Freedom is not about self-improvement at all, that is the mistake for everybody seeking happiness, but only about seeing the dream as a dream.


When you take your last breath before dying, you know the Truth, that this is just a long dream. Does knowing this Secret make you happy or not?
What dies is not you! The sword cannot cut you, water cannot drown you and fire cannot burn you, you are the immortal imperishable self.

The message that I share right here are just direct pointers to unchanging awareness, common to all and experienced directly by everybody.
Nothing new, nothing different or spiritual whatsoever is freshly acquired to know one's true nature, only ignorance is removed. That is all.
You gain absolutely nothing at all, just recognize what you have always been and are.
Just like the Fish in the water is crying that he is thirsty.

Ultimate Truth is very simple and paradoxically not for everybody. Only a rare few resonate to this simplicity.
The earnest Seeker has only one question in his heart, who am 'I'? He doesn't care about this world and its worldly affairs.
The earnest Seeker doesn't care if he gets cancer, aids, the plague or gets his legs amputated or loses all of his worldly possessions.

He understands and knows that it is not 'if' his body will die someday, but in fact 'when'.
The body has no future whatsoever and is only born to die. It is doomed.
You can kiss the body goodbye!

Like a burning fire in the heart of the earnest is as a moth attracted to a flame.
The desire is only to know the Self, the eternal, just this and nothing else. Nothing else matters.
While for many others the desire is only for illusion, only for the transient, for person, place, money, things and security.

The desire to find the Self will surely be fulfilled, provided you want nothing else.
But, you must be honest with yourself and really want nothing else.

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

If there is an earnest will to know the Self, then there is a way, one's earnestness to find the Self will indeed be rewarded.
Of course you have to forget all your attachments and all your desires for any objects, throw it all out the window.

If you are one of these spiritual people that go from place to place and Guru to Guru to find something exciting to do.
Always looking to check out the scene, seeking for someone special or something new to acquire and add on to themselves.
You may as well forget all about it, for where your treasure is, your heart will be also.

How to know when someone is ready to hear this simple Truth within their own heart?
When the desire for the Self, is stronger than the desire for Life itself.


Then the desire to know the Self is only and truly fulfilled from within oneself, from the Heart of consciousness.
The Kingdom is in you. It is just a Gift from Heart to Heart, a Gift from within. The Self reveals itself to itself, that is all.
No one can give you, your real ever-present self. All blessings only come from within.

If you are seeking for self-improvement, for anything new or special to be freshly acquired.
Anything spiritual or religious to be experienced, then realize that you are in the wrong place, there is none of this here.
This is just giving you a 'map' for you to follow and see if it takes you 'home'. To know yourself, that journey of self discovery, you alone must do.

All one can do is point to this undeniable common everyday presence of awareness. Follow the 'map' or throw it away, that is up to you.
Most people continuously reject Freedom and knowing the Self, simply because it is nothing new or exciting, but simply no-thing.

Awareness is just like space, always present and unchanging with oneself, it cannot be grasped or negated, it just is.
So common, so plain and so ordinary, awareness is always undeniably present but simply overlooked.

After all, it is nothing new or different to anyone, but simply one's own everyday self and being.
Is there anyone who is not aware of himself? Paradoxically the Self one desires to know, is truly oneself.
It is all a very strange paradox. Thou Art That.

Why not realize this simple Truth about yourself and end the search?
Realize that there is not 'you' and awareness present, that would be duality,
but in fact only 'you' are present as awareness itself, awareness is just another name for 'you'.
You are that.

The Self is ever present.
Each one wants to know the Self.
What kind of help does one require to know oneself?

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Be vigilant and recognize your ever-present true nature.
Awareness is always present first hand, very familiar and therefore very subtle.

The trick to Freedom is to simply realize that me, myself and 'I' or simply being oneself naturally and effortlessly is
NOT being a separate self or an independent entity apart from the Supreme, but in fact pure awareness itself or the Infinite Self.

You already are the Infinite Self, it is 'you'. That is all what non-duality or Oneness is truly all about. Gee! yoU aRe yoU.
This alone is the Real-'I'-zation, that you are already there, you are already realized. You are always the Self.

All I can do for anybody is simply bring attention to one's true nature
to be present naturally and common to all, present here and now as everyday wakefulness or pure awareness of being.
Just like space is the very first thing we all see when we open our eyes, awareness is subtler than space and easily overlooked.

Like pointing to space brings it to our attention, so does pointing to awareness brings it to our attention and in the forefront to be recognized.
That is all it takes to know the Self, to be aware or recognize awareness is itself one's true nature and eternal Reality.

That is all, everybody is aware anyhow, nothing new or extra-ordinary is to be freshly acquired to know the Self.
Simply noticing and recognizing that unchanging awareness is this undeniable living cognizing presence, which you have always been and are.

Awareness is what you have always known yourself to be, it is 'I' am.

The ignorant wishes to find the Self as something new and different to be freshly acquired, while the wise finds the Self as he truly is,
ever-present closer than close to oneself as common everyday Life itself and one's own being.
Who is not aware of himself? The Self is pure awareness of being.

The Self, Reality, consciousness, God are just different names for Life itself. That alone is the Oneness.
You cannot grasp or negate being, therefore Life is itself the beautiful Mystery we all love to be.

To know the Self is being the Self. You cannot kiss yourself, because you are Life itself.
All you can do is simply be what you already are, that is one's natural state of being.
There is no becoming.

All that is necessary for Freedom from all bondage, is simply to get to know you, that is the paradox.
You yourself just as you are, already are and always have been the Self all along. Everybody is always the Self, they simply don't realize it.

If you know that you are.
That is the state called 'Realization', to simply be aware of being.
Some want to see the Self as a blazing light, these are the people who read too many books.

Many people Seeking to find the Self don't know, that to simply be aware is to be the Self. Nothing was ever lost, just overlooked.
Not knowing that the Self is nothing new or special but paradoxically the most obvious and simply ordinary everyday awareness common to all,
is the only cause of all mischief. Ignorance or not knowing this simple Truth is the only obstacle to Freedom.

After all, why not prove it to yourself here and now, it is so easy?
No time or effort is required. Child-like simplicity, it is laughable how easy it is to discover the Self.
Be still, just pause thoughts and only pure unchanging awareness remains. That common presence of awareness is the Self that is sought-after.

Make no effort, your effort is the bondage. All that is required to realize the Self is to be still.
What can be easier than that?
~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Whenever you pause thoughts, you are there instantly. Present-awareness is just another name for 'you'!
Be still and the Self or unchanging awareness is self-revealed as pure changeless being. That alone is one's thoughtless true nature.

Pointed to clearly, knowing the Self is simply realizing that without any thoughts present, this undeniable unchanging
presence of awareness is effortlessly brought to one's attention to be recognized and revealed as one's true self.

If you read many spiritual books, visited many self-appointed Gurus and hanged out with long time spiritual Seekers.
You were perhaps mislead to believe that there is more to it. Well that is the only trouble, there isn't!
That is the Realization. Be still and know that you are that.

Again this simple message is not for everybody. Most people want more, rare is the one who desires no-thing.
Awareness is no-thing. It just is. Present here and now, it is pure changeless being. To be aware of oneself is the state of pure being.

The Self is one's true nature and one's true nature is simply the natural activity of being aware. That is all.
Common to all. The natural state of being aware and remaining aware is at once awareness and the Self. One and the same.

What can anyone do with this present-awareness?
Nothing at all! Just being aware naturally is this undeniable present-awareness. One can only be it naturally.
In fact it is simply being oneself naturally, what effort do you make to be aware?

Awareness or the Self is always present first hand and experienced directly everyday by everybody, as plain ordinary wakefulness.
Common to all and always experienced directly as ordinary everyday wakefulness, the Self is present-awareness or awareness of being present.
The Self is so familiar and so common to everybody. Awareness present is the knowing that you are present. It is 'I' am.

Who is not aware of himself and therefore doesn't know the Self so well already?
Each one knows 'I' exist, 'I' am alive and present is undeniable. Awareness is present because you are!
Awareness of being is present-awareness. No one can negate being. You are awareness. You are the Self this very moment.
The Self is that 'I' am you know.

You are awareness. Awareness is another name for you.
Since you are awareness, there is no need to attain or cultivate it... The ultimate Truth is so simple.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

You know that you are present, therefore the Self or awareness is indeed present! 'I' am that 'I' am is the simplest definition.
After all, no one ever said that to know one's true nature was hard or difficult but paradoxically very easy.
Ultimate Truth is so simple. Everybody is already 'Real-'I'-zed, they simply don't know themselves.

This is how you get to know the Self, He or the Reality.
Get to know yourself and you will know what I know, no-thing.

To hear this subtle 'song of enlightenment' within your own heart, you must be open to listen. Remove the 'veil'. That is the 'trick' to Freedom.
You only have to be open to childlike simplicity and be naked from any acquired concepts and preconceived ideas.
Forget everything you believe you know about Reality and you are there, it is pure being.

That is the 'Key' to the Kingdom of Heaven. To simply be open and have an open heart like a young child. That is all.
Have a look and see! Nothing else is required to simply know that you are. The Kingdom is in you, nowhere else will you ever find it.
It is not a place, a person or a thing but always present here and now as 'I' am.

The Self is present in all. Awareness is everyone's true nature. Nobody higher, nobody lower. Everybody is He.
Common to all, some call pure awareness the Self, God, He or the Oneness. If you wish to know what all the wise people
that recognized this simple Truth about themselves were talking about throughout the millennia and in the scriptures, that is it.

You are the Self, you are He, you are awareness this present moment, never changing. You cannot be anything else in Omni-presence anyhow.
To simply be aware naturally is being it effortlessly. Awareness is the knowing that you are present. It cannot be negated, it is pure being.
To recognize this unchanging presence of awareness is to know your real self and realize that you are ever-Free.

It is true! You are awareness itself. You are the Self. You are God.
You are pure awareness. The witness of all things. You are awareness itself. Never changing.
The Self is in all beings and all being are in the Self.... Know you are Free.
~ Ashtavakra Gita~

Going from place to place and Guru to Guru.
One can spend years Seeking in vain to find awareness as something new, different or holy far and away.

When all along pure awareness, the Self or Reality is so common, so natural and always undeniably present within one's own dwelling.
Not knowing where awareness is to be found, is the only problem. Not knowing how close it always is to oneself, people Seek awareness far away.
Ignorance is the only culprit, get rid of ignorance and voila! Here and now 'you' are that. Awareness is another name for you.

The Self or God is awareness and to simply be aware is awareness itself. Therefore when has awareness ever been lost?
You can only laugh at yourself for trying to discover the Self or awareness, aren't you aware right now?

Everybody knows the Self or awareness. Who is not aware of being?
Everybody knows 'I' am.

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

At one stage, only because of ignorance I falsely believed I was bound.
By understanding and seeing the false as false, the 'veil' of ignorance vanished and now I know I am Free.
Just like a mirage, neither bondage nor liberation existed, only ignorance was the obstacle to Freedom.
I had no idea that all along simply being myself was the Self I was desperately Searching to find.

I am nobody special, I am not a Teacher nor am I Guru. I am not a spiritual person with special faculties nor a religious person.
I am not selling anything, I am not endorsing any thing and any body. No practice, no book, no teaching, no teacher, no Guru.
I am not wanting anything for myself. Simply pointing to awareness like a finger pointing to the moon, that is all.
Just an ordinary pointer to that which always is ordinary, present and unchanging with oneself.

As the saying goes; You can take a horse to the water but you cannot make him drink.
If you are reading this, then you must still be Seeking, if not you wouldn't be here. Perhaps you will resonate with the pointers, perhaps you won't.
Everything written here, is only to point directly to one's ever-present true nature to be recognized and end the Search for wholeness.
Understanding is all that is necessary for the 'veil' of ignorance covering up one's true identity to dissolve.
Take it or leave it, that is up to you. If you are thirsty for Freedom, then drink!

If you have been on a Seeking path for a while, then you must have acquired wrong knowledge about Freedom.
Either you have misunderstood what Freedom is truly all about, or you were given the wrong address or pointers to begin with.
Wisdom is when you admit to yourself, that in fact you don't know what Reality and Freedom is truly all about.
If you did, you would be laughing at yourself and have called off the Search long ago. Nothing else.

Know the simple Truth that religious people and spiritual enlightened Gurus don't want you to know.
There is no such thing as 'self-Realization', there no such thing as 'Enlightenment' and there is no liberation either.
Simply because there is no bondage. Everybody is always the Self, they simply don't know it.

Realize that you don't have to spend years Seeking for the Self, He or the Reality,
but only to understand that awareness is what is sought-after as one's true nature and the search ends.

People spend years involved with all kind of acquired practices to get rid of thoughts. But that is the mistake. Remove ignorance instead.
Know the Truth! Freedom has nothing to do with performing any practice whatsoever or trying to keep quiet or to stop thoughts,
but all about realizing that you yourself are the presence of awareness undeniably present and unchanging prior to all thoughts.

Look at yourself. Look at your own being. Here and now you are that, unchanging awareness is just another name for you.
After all, pure awareness is so common to all. How much time and effort does it take, to know that you are?

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

Why do people worship the dead, when God is the Spirit of Life itself?
A strange paradox!

God is not a person, God is not a place or a thing, not an object that can ever be seen.
God is consciousness, existence, being. God is an effortless activity. It is happening here and now as one's own existence.

Do you know that your body is God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you?
Who am 'I'? Know yourself and if you know yourself then you know the Kingdom of God.
The Kingdom is in you. Never far away but undeniably present here and now, God is closer to you, than your own breath!

Always experience directly as one's very own self and being. Known to all and common to all as 'I' am. He is Life itself.
'I' am is pure changeless being, the Self, Reality God. Be still and know that 'I' am is God.

Not knowing how close the Truth, the Self, Reality or God always is to oneself, people Seek it far away. What a pity!
Omni-present. Look at your own self. Look at your own being and you have found God. He is that 'I' am you know so well.
No one can negate God, no one can ever negate being and say 'I' am not. One's own undeniable existence is the Divine.

Knowing the Self (God) is being the Self, and being means existence, one’s own existence.
No one denies one’s own existence.

Call it by any name, God, Self, the heart or the seat of consciousness, it is all the same.
The point to be grasped is that this heart means the very core of one’s being.
~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Here and now you are that. God, the Self, Reality are just different names for your very own self and being, for that 'I' am you know.
Your Life is God's Life. Present-awareness. How much time and effort does it take to know that you are?
Who is not aware of being? 'I' am is certain and that undeniable awareness of being,
needs no proof.

To know the Self is to know yourself and you will realize that 'I' am is that, alone is the Real-'I-zation.
That 'I' is not different from the 'Lord', but in fact One and the same being.

It is all a paradox! Know the real Truth about yourself.
Me, myself and 'I' and the 'Father' are One, no duality or separation but only Oneness. Who else would you be in Omni-Presence?
You already are the Oneness. That is the message of non-duality shared throughout the millennia, 'ego' or individuality doesn't exist!
Here and now you yourself are the Self, He, the Reality or God, it is 'I' exist, it is 'I' am.
It is simply being that which you have always been and are, yourself.

Consciousness is present as pure changeless being. The state of pure existence common to all or pure awareness of being is 'I' am.
The state called Realization or Enlightenment is simply being oneself naturally, just this and nothing else.
Not becoming or knowing anything new, special or spiritual, just knowing that pure changeless being
or plain common ordinary everyday being-ness or  'I' am-ness is God.

Thou Art That literally, this very moment without making any effort, just being as you are.
Call off the Search, just be still and know that you are.
'I' am is the goal and final Reality.

It is pure awareness of being. It is that 'I' am you know so well.
~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

To be or not to be? Who is not aware of being?
No one can deny one's own self and negate being.
Therefore how far do you have to go to know that you are present?

One's true nature is itself only known to oneself as this pure awareness of being.
Each one knows of course 'I' exist, of course 'I' am undeniably present right here and now, 'I' know 'I' am.
Who is not aware of himself? Everybody knows that they are present, because everybody knows 'I' am.

'I' am is certain. Awareness of being is bliss. The Self, existence, awareness of being and 'I' am are One. Same, same.
One's own existence is itself the Self, it is 'you are'. Therefore how can you kiss yourself, when you are already that by simply being.
Again to be or not to be? If you are aware of being that is the Self, that is all. You are that knowing that you are.

Simple changeless being is one's true nature.
~ Ramana Maharshi ~

You know that you are, you know that you exist and you like it. Everybody loves to be alive, even a cockroach loves to be.
Not knowing that the Self is simple changeless everyday being is the only trouble, ignorance is the only 'veil'.

Ignorance is not knowing that one's own existence is the true Beloved that can never be kissed,
that one's own common everyday ordinary existence is itself the Self, it is pure being. It is 'I' am.

Where ever your treasure is, your heart will be also.
To know the Self, look at your own self. You yourself are the precious 'Jewel', you have been looking for all along.

People ask what should they do for Freedom? Do nothing at all. Make no effort. You are already there. It is pure being, it is 'I' am.
You are the Self already. The Search is itself the Trap! Remove ignorance. Understanding is all that is required to remove the 'veil'.

Get to know your real self, it is so easy.
Whatever it may be, thoughts, feelings, emotions, whatever is seen or heard etc.
Who is undeniable present all day long to be aware of this and that? Who is the unchanging 'knower' present? It is 'I' am.
'I' am aware of this and that. You are that present-awareness or knowing-ness or 'I' am-ness. You are that 'I' am you know so well. That is all.

Reality is at once being and consciousness. Consciousness is existence, existence is being, being is 'I' am and 'I' am is 'you'.
Everybody without exception knows 'I' am, no one can deny one's own self and negate one's own existence or one's own being. 'I' am is certain.
Present-awareness. The only certainty you have right here and now is that you are. You know that you are.

You are you. 'I' am that 'I' am. The Self is 'I' am, the Self is 'you'.
So simple, being 'you' is in fact being IT. You are undeniably IT this very moment.
You know that you are. The Self is present as awareness of being, as 'I' am.
Who is not aware of himself?

People have only acquired wrong knowledge about themselves.
One falsely believes that being oneself naturally is being a finite or separate self or individual self when in fact
simply being oneself naturally is being the Self. Wrong identification, one only believes there is separation and bondage, but there isn't.
There is only the One presence of existence, not two. The One without a second is 'I' am, simply being oneself is being the Infinite Self, that is all.

Know the Truth about one's true nature, it is never far away but always present closer than close to oneself.
The Self, He, the Reality, God is common existence, therefore one's own existence is the Divine.
Existence, being, 'I' am is the Self, why should one Seek it? When you are already IT!

Who am 'I'? There is no 'ego'. There are no two selves. 'I' and the Self are One.
Same, same, no duality or separation whatsoever, everybody says 'I' this and 'I' that all day long.
No one can negate oneself and say 'I' don't exist! Know the Truth about 'I' or oneself, that 'I' is the One without a second.

Obviously no amount of effort can ever help you reach the Self, because you cannot become what you already are right now.
You are already there anyhow! Freedom is not about becoming anything new or different. Therefore the wise will only say what I am saying know.
Understanding is removing the false notion of being bound, nothing else is required for Freedom. Get rid of ignorance only.

Understanding is Realizing that you are already realized. You are already the Self or He this very moment. You are already that.
Only then that the Search for the Self that was never lost is over. That is all that needs to be realized or understood.

Like the Fish in the Ocean searching everywhere for the Ocean.
The Self is not reached, you are already that, you simply don't know it.

That is the cosmic joke some people like to call self-realization, realizing that you are already that.
The Self, Reality, He or God are just different names for the plain good ol' everyday you.
Gee! yoU aRe yoU.

So what happens when someone finally realizes that simply being oneself naturally is being the Self? Nothing happens!
Only ignorance is removed, that is all. Before chop wood and carry water and after chop wood and carry water. Same, same.

Understanding is all. All you gain is the knowledge of your true Home that you have never left, by simply removing ignorance.
Knowing thyself. Knowing it and not Seeking it, is itself Peace. To know yourself is to know the Self and the Oneness.
All you get is a very good laugh at yourself, for Seeking the Self.
That is the joke of it all.

The state of self-realisation, as we call it, is not attaining something new or reaching some goal which is far away,
but simply being that which you always are and which you always have been.
~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Know the Truth! When ever you see self-appointed Gurus pretending to have something that you don't already have, that is only for show.
Some people pretend to have achieved enlightenment or reached Freedom, but that is only selling water by the River to the ignorant.

Here is the Secret just like the illusionist, the self-appointed Guru doesn't want you to know.
Everybody alive is already naturally and always the Self, they simply don't know it.
The only obstacle to Freedom, is simply not knowing
that being oneself is being the Self.

Anyone playing the Guru wants to play the Guru for one reason or another and be seen as one and many times even worshipped by others.
Always associating themselves with dead Gurus, using religious concepts, stories and beliefs, just like any spiritual or religious evangelist on T.V.
Some will even will take on a religious non profit denomination, just that they don't pay taxes from what they take from others in the name of God.

My own personal experience with self-appointed spiritual Gurus is that many of them didn't care, only kept people on a Seeking path to nowhere.
Some were wanting to be worshipped as holy beings, others asking for donations or to be taking care of financially by the devotees etc.
Never directly, honestly and clearly pointing to the Self or to one's true nature, but in fact away from revealing the real Truth.

Why should anyone wait for freedom?
Understand what is being pointed to, that is all.

Know the Truth!
Wisdom is Freedom. Only ignorance is bondage.
Am I right or am I wrong? That is up to you to find out!

Know the Truth and it shall set you Free.
Not striving, not becoming or attaining anything new, just 'knowing'.
Understanding is all.

You can only take a horse to the water, but you cannot make him drink.
Investigate for yourself, only by seeing the false as false that the Truth is revealed.
I am only sharing with you, what I found out to be True.
Have a look and see.

Wouldn't it be funny, that all along you have always been what you have been looking for? Closer than close!
You simply didn't know it and therefore believed it was yet to be acquired as something new or spiritual, when in fact you have always been it.
Not some spiritual or religious goal to be reached or something new, but simply being what you have always been and are.
Realizing that to look for it was always to look away from it. To Seek it was to turn away from it even more.

Did you know that any practice to stop thoughts or to try to keep quiet or silent is the cause of psychological suffering?
That's right! It all works in reverse. Whatever it may be, resistance is itself conflict and paradoxically whatever
you don't hold on to, may it be thoughts, feelings or emotions do not hold on to you and that is peace.
After all, water must run, what happens if you block water from flowing?

Do NOT try to keep quiet, do NOT make being quiet into a task to be performed.
Don't be restless about being quiet,
miserable about being happy.

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

Did you know that to simply be conscious is the natural state of being common to everybody and that is one's true nature?
Everybody knows this consciousness so well already and experiences it directly everyday as pure awareness of being, as 'I' am.

The state of pure being which is common to all and which is always experienced by everybody is one's true nature.
~ Ramana Maharshi ~

No one can ever be apart from consciousness. Whenever you are aware of being present as yourself, that is only because the Self is present.
So common to all. Always experienced as one's own self and being. Nobody ever fails to experience the Self directly every waking day.
The only trouble is not knowing that it simply is the natural activity of being conscious and therefore aware of being.

Did you know that to simply be awake from sleep or common everyday wakefulness is in fact the Self, He, the Reality?
Wakefulness is the natural effortless activity of knowing that you are present as yourself or 'I' am.
Wakefulness is consciousness and awareness of being.

When the Seeker ask should one do any practice to discover awareness, the answer is simple.
"Are you aware?" If you answer is: "Yes of course 'I' am". That is IT! 'I' am is here and now! You know that you are.
That common everyday ordinary awareness of being present alone is the Self and one's true nature being pointed to.

You are aware and that is awareness. Realize that any practice whatsoever always imply becoming something new or different in a future 'time'.
This very moment is the Real moment of existence and being-ness. That is IT. Awareness of being present is always presently.
Therefore when the wise is asked should one practice awareness? The answer is always going to be the same:

What have you to wait for when it is already here and now?
You have to only look & see. Look at your self, at your own being.

You know that you are and you like it. Abandon all imagining, that is all.
Do not rely on time, time is death, who waits dies. Life is now only!

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

If you believe the Self or Reality is some special power or spiritual faculty that is freshly acquired, that is not that at all.
The Self is simply common everyday awareness of being present or knowing that are.
Who is not aware of himself?

Is there anyone who is not aware of himself?
Each one knows, but yet does not know the Self. A strange paradox!

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

If you don't understand that to simply be aware or awareness is being the Self, the Reality or He, then you are only bound to ignorance.
Once you realize that to simply be aware naturally, is undeniably knowing that you are present here and now and that this common ordinary
everyday wakefulness is present-awareness or unchanging awareness of being present as 'I' or oneself, and that alone is the Self itself.
Then you are Free!

No one can give you anything new. Take it or leave it! Here is the simple Secret to Freedom! To be aware is to be the Self. Same, same.
Aware-ness is the Self. The true Guru will only say what I am saying know, you need nothing at all, you are aware already anyhow.
After all, take a look at yourself here and now, you know that you are! To be or not to be? Who is not aware of being?
What effort do make to be aware? Aren't you aware right now? What effort do you make to be?
You know that you are and you like it. 'I' am is certain. That is the Self.
Pure awareness of being.

Did you know that there is not a single kind of practice that can ever be performed, that will ever help anyone realize the Self?
It is impossible! Doesn't matter what it is, it all works in reverse! In fact any acquired practice as well as making any effort whatsoever for Freedom
will only perpetuate the false notion of bondage and illusion of separation, when paradoxically one is already the Self and Free but doesn't realize it.

Therefore if one is already the Self this very moment and Free, then what should one do for Freedom?
Do nothing at all. Make no effort! No amount of practice and effort will ever help you realize the Self, take it for granted!
No teaching, no Guru or practice is required for Freedom, but only understanding this consciousness present here and now as oneself is required.
Only the false notion of not being already the Self and therefore already realized is to be removed, and that alone is the realization.

Because of ignorance people falsely believe that the Self is something new or special or spiritual that is yet to be acquired, but it is not!
Did you know that there is no such things as Guru transmissions? Did you know that there is no such things as Guru's Grace?
Did you know that anybody alive and aware of himself or all sentient or conscious beings are already 'Buddhas'?
They simply don't know it.

Just like water and ice. There is no ice without water.
No Infinite Self present, no individual self present either, simply because both are in fact One.
The Infinite Self is always here. Ever-present, it is simply camouflaged as one's own everyday familiar self.

That is all what non-duality or Oneness is simply all about. You yourself already are the Infinite Self itself, you are the Oneness.
The ignorant falsely believes himself to be a finite separate self, while the wise knows that simply being oneself is being the Infinite Self.
Know the real Truth about your own self. That yourself is no different from the eternal Infinite Self, you yourself are the One without two.

So you don't have to pick your brain to figure out who is and who is not so called 'Realized' or 'Enlightened' in Omni-presence.
For everybody alive no matter whom, is already the Self. Everybody alive is already so called 'Realized' and 'Enlightened.

People Seeking the Self, Reality or God as something new, spiritual or special simply don't realize or understand
that the Self, the Reality or God is simply Life itself and therefore don't know it and are ignorant of the Self.
Many will pick up religious doctrines and spend their entire lives looking away from themselves, that is all.
Wisdom is Freedom, not reaching or attaining anything new, spiritual or special. That's the Secret!

Understanding is 'Realizing'.
The so called 'Realization' is simply understanding, nothing new is freshly acquired, only the 'veil' of ignorance is removed.
The true Guru or honest pointer knows that he doesn't have anything new, special or different, that you don't have already.

So common to all and always experienced directly by everybody alive and aware, one's true nature is in fact so familiar and so ordinary to oneself.
Realize that the so called 'realization' is nothing special, it is not an event or experience, but simply to realize that awareness is one's true nature.

Just like space is always present and always unchanging and therefore subtle and simply overlooked for the content or objects present in it.
What is called 'Realization' is just a simple recognition to what has always been present with oneself, but simply overlooked.
Nothing new is gained, because nothing was ever lost! Everybody is already the Self, they simply don't realize it.

The Guru cannot give you anything new, which you don’t have already.
Removal of the notion that we have not realised the Self is all that is required.
We are always the Self, only we don’t realise it.
~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Reality is at once being and consciousness. The Self is simply pure awareness of being.
The true Guru knows that to simply be wakeful, conscious and therefore aware of being present is to be the Self, that is all.
Common to all as pure being. Everybody is aware of being present. Everybody says 'I' all day long and therefore undeniably knows that they are.

If you were mislead to believe that the Self was something new, special and extra-ordinary, that is probably the very reason why you would
have missed it all this time. You were looking away from it. For one's true nature is never far away, but undeniably present closer than close.
In fact you yourself are the experience itself, the Self is simply being yourself. Here and now you are that.

The Self is what you have always been and are. Your own common familiar ordinary everyday self, nothing else. You are that literally.
The Self is common everyday ordinary awareness and awareness is knowing that you are present as yourself, therefore the Self is 'I' am.

No one can deny one's own self. You undeniably know that you are.
'I' am is certain and that awareness of being needs no proof.

The experience is here and now. One cannot deny one’s own self.
Existence is the same as happiness and happiness is the same as being.
Why should one seek it?

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Everybody loves to be. No one can say 'I' don't exist!
The Self is pure existence and existence present is everybody's natural state of being. The Self is the presence of Life itself.
No one can negate one's own existence, no one can negate being. The Self is consciousness and consciousness present is being.

Know the Truth! That Freedom was never about acquiring anything new, anything different or special,
but simply all about knowing your real self. Knowing your true nature. That is all.
Who am 'I'? Know thyself and you know the Oneness.

Inseparable, indivisible. Consciousness is always undeniably present with oneself, as oneself.
Consciousness is the very core of one's being. Never apart. One's own existence or Life itself is the Self.

'You' cannot be present without it present. It is that 'I' am itself or knowing that you are present here and now as yourself.
The Self is undeniably present here and now with you, this very moment! Prove it to yourself! Are you conscious?
If you answer is "yes 'I' am!" Then consciousness is present. You are aware of being.

Realize that 'I' am that 'I' am is the realization. Awareness of being is bliss or happiness. To be or not to be? 'I' am or 'I' am not?
Who is not aware of himself? Everybody knows 'I' am. One's true nature is that undeniable common awareness of being present as oneself.
The goal and Reality is so near and so dear, it is 'I' am. Once you are seek and tired of Seeking high and low, you turn around and look at yourself.
Then you have finally found the Self that was never lost, your very own self. All along the Seeker was the Sought. You are that literally.

At one stage you will laugh at yourself for trying to discover the Self.
~ Ramana Maharshi ~


There never was anything new to get whatsoever for Freedom, but to simply realize that there is no duality.
The Self is nothing new but in fact simply being oneself naturally, that is all.

To know the Self is so easy, just take a look at your self here and now, you undeniably know that you are present and you like it!
Remove ignorance only by discovering who is 'I' or that knowing that you are present here and now as yourself truly represents, who am 'I' really?
And if you know yourself, then you also know the 'Kingdom of God', it is so simple! Who are 'you'?
Know thyself and you will only laugh at yourself for Seeking 'you'.

After all, who doesn't know 'I' am? Everybody says 'I' this, 'I' that all day long. 'I' is pure awareness of being.
Everybody knows that they are undeniably present and aware of being. 'I' and the 'Father' are One, no difference whatsoever.
'I' is consciousness itself or the Infinite Self. 'I' is the 'Lord'. 'I' is the eternal. 'I' is undeniably present here and now, is itself the Reality, it is 'I' am.

The Self that is desperately sought-after was never lost or far away, but paradoxically ever-present with oneself as simply being oneself.
That is the cosmic joke that will only make you laugh at yourself for trying to discover the Self, because right here and now you are already that.

One very own undeniable existence and awareness of being alive and therefore present as oneself or 'I', has always been the Self.
Everybody knows that they are. No one can deny one's own existence. No one can deny one's own self.
No one can say 'I' am not or 'I' don't exist. Existence is being.

The state we call Realisation is simply being oneself.
Not knowing anything or becoming anything.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Realize that the Self, Reality or God was never to be found in a temple or a church or hidden somewhere far away in a mountain or a cave,
but paradoxically always has been naturally ever-present with oneself as Life itself. As the beautiful Mystery we all Love to be.
The Kingdom is you!

You could ask, if ultimate Truth is so simple.
Why do people spend years practicing meditations, doing all kinds of yogas, learning and repeating mantras and singing bajhans for Freedom?
Many people Searching for Freedom are not told the Truth about Reality, paradoxically they are kept on a Seeking path, many for decades.
Some will even die never knowing they have always been the Self all along, they simply didn't know it. No one told them where to look.

Why do Spiritual Seekers are not content that the Self is simply common existence and existence is being and being is 'I' am? Who knows?
Seekers are so conditioned by so many made up extra-ordinary stories and concepts acquired from spiritual books and self-appointed Gurus.
They cannot accept that simply being aware is being the Self already because it is no-thing. Many want to see awareness as a blazing light.

Be content with what you are sure of. And the only thing you can be sure of is 'I' am.
The only fact you are sure of is that you are. The only clue you have is your certainty of being.
~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~


Who is not aware of being? Isn't it knowing that you are alive and kicking first hand? Present-awareness?
How much time and effort does it take to simply realize or know that you are undeniably alive, conscious and therefore present or 'I' am?
The wise will always point to one's true self and being as this present-awareness. The Self, He, the Reality is to be aware of being.

To be awake or to be conscious naturally is to be aware of being present or present-awareness i.e. consciousness
This unchanging presence of consciousness is the natural effortless activity of knowing that you exist, the activity of knowing that you are.
The natural state of being is to be conscious. Awareness of being present as oneself here and now is 'I' am.

Did you know that understanding that this common consciousnes is the experience itself, and that realization alone is Freedom?
Did you know that not knowing that the Self is to simply be conscious everyday naturally or present-awareness, is itself the only bondage?

Only that ignorance is the obstacle to Freedom, therefore Freedom is to only get rid of ignorance by knowing the Truth. Nothing else.
Who is not aware of being? Are you aware of being present as yourself right here and now? You know that you are?
Then you know the Self so well already as yourself, as 'I' am, you are that present-awareness itself.

That is the Secret to Freedom, there is no bondage, you are He, you are That. Understanding this is Freedom.
You are already the Self. You are already eternally Free! One only believes that there separation and duality, only because one doesn't know himself.

Know yourself and if you know yourself to simply be this consciousness common to all, then you also know the Oneness to be Life itself.

On enquiry 'who' is bound? The notion of bondage vanishes and so does that of liberation.
The one eternally free alone remains self-revealed.

~ Ramana Maharshi ~

Freedom is so easy, but people Seeking Freedom don't want easy what to do!
Ultimate Truth is so simple that paradoxically, that is the only difficulty.

To Seek it is to always the knowing that you are.
Awareness of being alive is consciousness and therefore to be the Self. Awareness of being is 'I' am, that is all.
You are that 'I' am that 'I' am. Who is not aware of himself?

Your very own self here and now, your very own being, your very own existence this very moment is the true Beloved that will never leave you.
The true Beloved is not to be found in a person, a place or a thing but always present as consciousness, as existence, as no-thing.
The true Beloved is only found, when you turn within toward your very own self and being, toward 'I' am.

The Kingdom is in you. Reality is always present within your own dwelling.
The Self or consciousness is pure existence. It is pure being. It is that 'I' exist, that 'I' am you know so well as yourself.
Know yourself and you will realize the Oneness, that 'I' is not different from the 'Lord', but in fact that 'I' and the 'Father' are One.

Realize that the Seeker only goes from forest to forest and Guru to Guru believing there is something missing to be freshly acquired.
When in fact there never was any separation from consciousness, the wise understood this simple Truth, the ignorant doesn't realize it.
That is the only difference between the wise and the ignorant, understanding that the Self is consciousness or being aware.

What you need is to be aware of being aware.
~ Nisargadatta Maharaj ~

Why does the Fish in the water cry that he is thirsty?

The one who Seeks Freedom is only 'veiled' by ignorance.
Freedom is always here. If it is not known to the Seeker it is only because of ignorance. Nothing else.
Remove ignorance by understanding that there is no bondage at all. With that realization the 'veil' of ignorance dissolves revealing Freedom.

Know the Truth! Freedom was never about acquiring anything new whatsoever, only removing the false notion of being bound.
It all a paradox and works in reverse, stop Seeking and you have found it. Seek it and you are always missing it.

To know the Self look at yourself. You yourself already are what you Seek to find. This very moment.
Doesn't feel like anything new or special, simply because you are already there! You yourself are the experience.
You can only know the Self as simply being your own self right now, you yourself are that. That is all. You are the Oneness.
Know thyself and you know the Truth.

Understanding is all. There is no becoming. Any effort for achieving Freedom is paradoxically bondage. It works in reverse.
Don't you know? Freedom is always here, it is so familiar and so ordinary, so near and so dear to everyone that one simply doesn't realize it.
Instead of striving to acquire something new or different, turn around and recognize that which always is present and unchanging, it is very subtle.

The Secret is to realize that what is sought-after as the Self is consciousness. Where can you find it?
Look at yourself here and now. To simply be conscious is this consciousness that is sought-after or the effortless activity of being aware.
To be or not to be? 'I' am or 'I' am not? Everybody knows the Self so well already as the knowing that they are present or present-awareness.
After all, you must be conscious first hand for you to know that you are. Unconscious there is no awareness of being, there is no 'I' am.

Here is the open Secret and the trick to Freedom. You can end your search here and now! Understanding is all.
If you don't understand or realize that to simply be conscious naturally is consciousness and that this consciousness is undeniably
present here and now as common awareness of being, and that this undeniable presence of awareness alone is the Self, then you are bound.
When you come to realize that to simply be awake from sleep and therefore being conscious is the Self or unchanging awareness then you are Free.

Paradoxically when have you not been conscious and therefore aware of being present as yourself? Everybody knows the Self so well already.
Who is not aware of himself? You must be conscious to know that you are present, therefore you have always been the Self and Free.
The goal to Freedom is to realize that the Self is consciousness and this consciousness is pure awareness of being, it is 'I' am.

Consciousness present is 'I' am present, therefore 'I' and consciousness are One. No difference whatsoever, it is pure being.
The only self realization is to realize that being oneself naturally is already being realized. That is the understanding or Real-'I'-zation.
Bondage and liberation never existed, just a false notion of separation and duality that has never been investigated. Just a false belief, that is all.

Not knowing how close Reality always is to oneself, people Seek it far away. To Seek it, is to always turn away from it.
Freedom is here. Nothing other than ignorance is to removed for Freedom to be self-revealed with understanding only. Look at yourself.
The realization is that you yourself already are here and now and always have been that undeniable unseen presence of consciousness,
that you have always known so well your entire life as 'I' am. Awareness of being present as oneself is the Self.

No separation. No bondage. No duality. Here and now you are that.
If you falsely believe that there is anything other than consciousness present as yourself, then you don't know yourself.
Get to know your real identity and true nature, get to know who am 'I'? Then you will know the Oneness.

Right here and now you already are the Self. You have always abided as the Self.
The Self is always present as one's own self and being. The Self is 'I' am. Ignorance is the only obstacle to Freedom.
Just like a wave cannot exist apart from the Ocean. There is no separation from consciousness, it is undeniably present as Life itself.
The Self or consciousness is one's eternal true nature, no one can ever be apart or separate themselves from consciousness. It is impossible.

If you investigate you will simply come to the realization or understanding that the Oneness being pointed to as one's true nature or the Self
is nothing other than the unseen Spirit of Life itself. The power, presence and intelligence beating your heart and shining through your eyes.
The Supreme Being present in all beings if you like. Consciousness is the Heart of all hearts. The One without two.

The body is not the real 'you'. After all, everyone addresses the body as 'my' body. Just the same as any other object that can be seen.
One only believes that being oneself is being a finite self limited to the body, when in fact simply being oneself is being the Infinite Self.
Realize that when you say 'I' am, it is not the body but the presence of consciousness in the body that 'I' am represents. Awareness of being.

You yourself already being the Self here and now and already being Free wants to know the Self and Freedom. You already are what you Seek.
Know the simple Truth about yourself! That 'I' or oneself is not different from the Self but in fact the exact same self. Non-duality.
How can the 'I' sees itself? When you yourself are the One without two? Who is to see you when you are the Seer?

The problem is to try to objectify consciousness, just like when you see your eyes in the mirror. Reality is not what is seen but the Seer.
You cannot see the Seer, all you can ever see in the mirror is only a reflection, the real Seer is unseen.
The natural activity of Seeing or cognizing is the real unseen presence of existence itself,
that alone is consciousness shining through the eyes as the Seer.

Therefore the Self, He, Reality or God or whatever name you want to label consciousness is the Seer.
Seeing is being the Self, Seeing is one's true nature self-shining through the eyes and watching the changing world unfold.
So near and so dear consciousness is the unseen presence of awareness cognizing through the senses.

Understand that consciousness is the Oneness and real presence of existence. All natural activities are registered on consciousness.
There is no duality, there are no two selves. There is no 'mind' or 'ego'. There is no other presence present but this.

The only trouble is the desire to acquire Freedom when one is already Free. Striving to reach the Self when one is already the Self.
How can you kiss yourself? The effort alone is the bondage. The Search itself is the trap. Didn't anyone tell you?
Understanding is instant Freedom. Not the acquisition of anything new. You are already there.

It is impossible to become what you already are!
Instead of wasting an entire Lifetime searching for the Self that was never lost.
Simply get to know your own self present here and now, that is where the answer always is. You are already that.
Again there is no separation or duality present, no two selves ever existed! One only foolishly believes that there is, but there isn't.

Undeniably present here and now as one's own self and being. To Seek consciousness is to always look away from consciousness.
Who is not aware of being present? Everybody knows that they are present! Present-awareness is that consciousness itself, it is 'I' am.
One can go from Forest to forest, Guru to Guru, it doesn't matter where you go for the Reality is present as consciousness in your own dwelling.

You will never find the Self or consciousness outside yourself. All blessings come from within. One's own self and being is the Divine.
Look at yourself. Consciousness cannot be acquired from others. Eventually you must turn within to finally realize that what doesn't
come and go anywhere is simply this pure awareness of being and that unchanging common everyday 'I' am-ness is the Self.
No one can negate one's own self. Everybody knows 'I' am. That knowing that you are present or 'I' am is always with 'you'.

The goal and final realization is that simply being oneself naturally, 'I' or 'I' am or knowing that you are present is God i.e consciousness. That is all.
There never was God and 'you'. You yourself are God. You are the One. Consciousness is one's real nature, it is pure awareness of being.
Whatever name you label consciousness, the point is to understand that this is the core of one's being.

No consciousness present, no 'you'. Consciousness present is present-awareness or 'I' am. Therefore the Self is awareness of being.
Inseparable, indivisible, anyone aware of being present as oneself is always the Self. The Self is everyone's natural state of being.
Existence, Life, consciousness, awareness, being and 'I' am are all synanomous for this Oneness, for the One without a second.

Simply being oneself is being the Self and being the Self is being oneself, no difference, no duality or separation whatsoever.
One can spend ten, twenty, thirty years or even an entire Lifetime Seeking the Self only because of ignorance.
The Self is always present with oneself as plain ordinary everyday awareness of being, the Self is 'I' am.

Just like the infinite blue sky is only an optical illusion. Another Secret to Freedom, is that there is no bondage.
One only believes that there is separation and duality when in fact there isn't any. Just a false belief or false notion, that is all bondage is.

The Self is not far away but always present. Ignorance is the only 'veil'. Do you know the Truth about your own everyday familiar self?
Are you a finite self? Get to know your own everyday familiar self and if you know yourself, then you instantly know the Oneness or non-duality.
After all,  you are the Oneness already, you simply don't realize it.

Like the Fish in the water crying that he is thirsty. Ignorance is the only cause of all mischief.
Remove ignorance and voila! You have arrived at the destination you have never left.

Have you ever forgot that you put your car keys in your own pocket and frantically went searching for them everywhere?
Could they have been left here or inside the car or perhaps over there? Why don't you stop searching and take a look and check your own pocket.
Then you laugh at yourself because you realize that they were never lost or far away, but paradoxically always present right here with you all along.

Once you understand and realize what is truly being pointed to as the Self, you will also laugh at yourself for trying to discover the Self.

Seeking the Self as something new, special or spiritual is like foolishly going from forest to forest to find what was never lost but paradoxically
what you have always been and are all along effortlessly and naturally, nothing new but closer than close, it is your own self here and now.
Like the Fish in the Ocean searching for the Ocean. Only remove ignorance and you have done all that needed to be done.

Spiritual and religious people Seeking the Self and Freedom have acquired so many preconceived ideas and spiritual concepts about Reality.
Yet Reality is always present here and now as nothing new, special or spiritual. Remove acquired preconceived ideas from books and others
by simply realizing that one's true nature is nothing other than simply being oneself. That is the realization, that you are that already.

Actually another paradox is that the state of 'Realization' spiritual Seekers are striving to reach doesn't exist. Just an acquired myth or concept.
The true state of so called 'Realization' is simply being oneself naturally, not becoming or knowing anything, just simply being.
One only believes that there is bondage, just a false notion to be removed with investigation or self inquiry, that is all.

Most people Seek the Self as something new, a blazing light or spiritual experience, when in fact awareness is present and remains unchanging.
The Self will never be an experience but the undeniable unchanging awareness which is present and aware of all changing experiences.

Meaning not what is known but the knower, not what is seen but the seer, not what is heard but the hearer etc.
Awareness or the Self is the registering, witnessing or cognizing presence if you like.

The Self is not acquired or reached, it is already there!
Obviously if someone Seeks the Self that is only because they have in idea what the Self is.
Wisdom is to understand what is being pointed to as the Self, then the Self can be recognized already present here and now.

A funny paradox! Not knowing what the Self truly is, is ignorance and ignorance or not knowing is the only obstacle to know the Self.
Therefore to know the Self is to simply get rid of ignorance. That is all.

The activity of being aware is the Self. The Self is awareness.
Seeing, hearing, knowing, thinking, feeling, smelling etc, are all the natural activities of being aware or awareness.
Without consciousness the eye can't see, the Self or awareness is present as the unseen Seer. Seeing is being aware and the Self.
The Self is simply being conscious, in other words being effortlessly aware of all natural activities and knowing that you are.

For example can you stop the natural activity of seeing?
What happens if you close your eyes and pass a bright light in front of your eye lids? Don't you still see?
Same with the natural activity of hearing, plug your ears with your fingers, what happens? Don't you still hear?

This registering, witnessing or cognizing presence cannot be stopped, this undeniable presence of awareness is one's true nature.

The Self is not silence or stillness but an activity, the activity of being conscious.
Being conscious and therefore aware is this unchanging present-awareness and that is what the Self truly is, unchanging awareness.
The natural common effortless activity of being aware and to remain aware is pure i.e. constant awareness. The constant knowing that you are.
This undeniable knowingness that you are present here and now, alone is unchanging awareness or pure awareness of being. Same thing.

Remember that one only believes that there is bondage and separation,
when in fact all along simply being oneself naturally is always being this presence of awareness itself and the Self. There is none other.
There is no other Seer present, no other hearer present, no other knower present but this presence of unseen awareness or Omni-presence.

To simply be aware is awareness and that alone is the One without a second. There is no duality present, one only believes that there is.
Where one falsely believes there are 'two', the wise knows there is only One.

While most people are so busy chasing after a dream world for self-improvement and the acquisition of something new.
The Self is what is naturally and effortlessly happening as Life itself in the present moment,
as simply being conscious and aware of being present. The Self is 'I' am.

So dear and so near, everybody knows the Self so well already. Who is not aware of himself? 
Everybody knows that they are, 'I' am is certain and that undeniable awareness of being present needs no proof.
The Self is pure awareness of being, it is 'I' am. The Self is common everyday consciousness. Just this and nothing else.

Unconscious there is no 'I' am, therefore consciousness present is 'I' am.
'I' am represents consciousness, the Self, He and the Reality, which is simply being aware of being present as oneself.
You are conscious because you know that you are present and you know that you are present because you are conscious. So simple isn't?

Like a Fish in the water crying that he is thirsty. Freedom is so easy but people Seeking Freedom paradoxically don't want easy.
After all, look at yourself, what effort do you make to be aware? Are you aware? Yes or no!
Awareness is present and unchanging, you are conscious.

Awareness present is being. If you are reading these words you are undeniably aware.
You know that you are present! Awareness present is simply the undeniable knowing that you are present here and now.
You cannot grasp it or negate it, it is pure being. Awareness just is. It is pure changeless awareness of being present or 'I' am.
The activity of knowing that you are. Pure awareness of being is constant awareness of being present as oneself, it is 'I' am. You are that.

To know the Self or one's unchanging true nature is so easy! Just realize that you are aware and remain aware, that is all awareness is.
The Self is this undeniable present-awareness or pure awareness of being, it is that 'I' am you know so well.


To simply be conscious or to be awake from sleep is to be aware, i.e to be cognizant is wakefulness and that is awareness, you know that you are.
Therefore the Self is not reached, but already undeniably present here and now closer than close to oneself, to be aware is itself to be the Self.
That is all Freedom is all about, you are that. Awareness is being. If you know that you are present then you are the Self. Present-awareness.
Who is not aware of himself? Ultimate Truth is so simple. Awareness of being is one's true nature and Reality.

What is sought-after as one's true nature and Reality is consciousness.
The ignorant will go from forest to forest and Guru to Guru Seeking this consciousness.
When everyday of their lives they are awake, the simple fact of being conscious is being the Self and consciousness.

Only 'veiled' by ignorance, many people Seek the Self far and away while paradoxically it is undeniably present within their own dwelling.
Consciousness is this undeniable presence, power and intelligence we all love to be, we call it Life.

If you wonder why the true Guru will not estrange you from yourself, but tirelessly point to one's true nature as simply being oneself naturally.
Well that is because there is only One Truth, therefore this message of non-duality or Oneness always remains the exact same.
Who am 'I'? To know thyself is to realize that here and now you are already the Self and Free, you are already that.

The Scriptures will tell you the exact same thing:
"Know yourself and if you know yourself, you know the Kingdom of God."


Know yourself by removing ignorance, that is all that is required to know the simple Truth about oneself.
This message of non-duality or Oneness is timeless and doesn't change but remains always consistent throughout the millennia.
Beware of self-appointed Gurus that say one thing one day and something different the next day, for that cannot be Truth.

The simple Truth is that only understanding is required to remove the 'veil' of ignorance.
Reality and Freedom is already present. Everybody is always the Self, they simply don't know it.

The illusion of bondage and separation is simply wrong acquired knowledge, a 'veil' of false beliefs makes up an illusory cage. That is all.
One only believes that there is separation and bondage, when in fact there no bondage but only Oneness and Freedom.

Some self-appointed Gurus dependent on people's ignorance and false notion of bondage for making a living, selling water by the River.
These people or self-appointed Gurus will in fact never point their disciples to the simple Truth, but paradoxically away from it.
If you ever wonder why some people spend years worshipping Gurus, that is only because they were never told the Truth.

Know the Truth and it sets you Free. Not becoming anything new.

The true Guru knows you need nothing, not even him and is never tired of reminding you.
There is no becoming anything new, only understanding is realizing the simple Truth.
That here and now you yourself are that. Awareness is another name for 'you'.

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

Here is a little hidden Secret that you may not know. Did you know that there is no such thing as Satsang?
That is only a Eastern religious concept that religious and spiritual people have used to sell ignorance or water by the River to the ignorant Seeker.
After all, you yourself are always the Self, therefore when have ever been apart or ever been un-associated with your true nature when it is 'I' am?
'I' am is the Truth! The Self is always present with you, as you. The simple fact is that the Self or Reality is your very own existence?

Inseparable, indivisible. The Self is always present and unchanging with oneself, it is always experienced directly as being aware of being. As 'I' am.
To know that you are present or awareness of being present is one's true nature. Realize that this pure unchanging awareness of being
or constant knowing that you are present is inseparable, indivisible, always present and unchanging, it is one's real nature.
Therefore because it is always here and now, why should one Seek it?

Why not cut to the chase by realizing that here and now you are already that and end the Search?

Freedom was never about gaining anything or becoming something new, special or different, but simply all about losing ignorance.
It all works in reverse, all a paradox! Instead of trying to become the Self or the One without a second. Get rid of ignorance.
Remove any false notion that makes you falsely believe that you are not already there and therefore already Free.
There is nothing else to realize other than you are already realized without ever trying to be
.
There is only One 'I'. There is only One Self present in all, as all. This Living presence is known to all as 'I' am.
There never was any separation or duality for anybody. Because of ignorance one only believes that there is, but there isn't it.
One only believes that there is duality or individuality when in fact there is only One presence of existence, consciousness or awareness.
You are this presence of awareness itself right here and now. You are the Self already. Simply being yourself. It is 'I' am.
'I' am that 'I' am. Therefore how can you get, see or kiss yourself? Just remove ignorance.

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

There are many spiritual concepts and many religious beliefs,
but there is only One Truth! Did you know that the Self or one's true nature is awareness?

Did you know that to simply be aware is the awareness being pointed to as God, the Self, He or the Reality? That is all it is.
Common to all. One's true nature is the natural state of being, aware of being present as oneself is to be conscious or consciousness.
That is what consciousness or the Self truly is, awareness of being present. In other words are you aware? Yes? That is IT!

What can you do with awareness? Nothing! just be it.
Awareness is not a special power or faculty, it is the natural state of being.

To simply be aware is the Self. Call off the Search, aren't you aware right here and now anyhow?
You know that you are. This undeniable everyday presence of awareness is at once being and consciousness, it is 'I' am.

Like selling water by the River, the self-appointed Guru doesn't want his disciples to know this simple Truth.
Just like tightening a carrot on a stick and dangling it in front of an Ass to make him chase it, knowing full well he will never reach it.
The only way to play the holy Guru is by camouflaging this simple Truth and pretending to have reached or acquired something new and special.

There is nothing new to be reached or to be freshly acquired for Freedom, just look at yourself and recognize what is your true nature. That is all.
To be conscious is to be awake from sleep or wakefulness and this activity of being conscious is consciousness i.e. the Self and ones' true nature.
The Secret is that to simply be awake, conscious or aware and to remain aware all day long effortlessly is the state called 'Realization'.
Forget everything and you are there! To be or not to be? Who is not aware of himself?

You can only laugh at the joke of it all.
You are aware! You know that you are present. 'I' am is certain. You are that present-awareness.
Awareness of being present as oneself is 'I' am and one's true nature. That is the Self you have read all about in holy books.

Reality is existence and existence is at once consciousness and being. Awareness of being is 'I' or 'I' am.
Reality is the activity of being aware or knowing that you are present or 'I' am.

You are undeniably aware of being present as yourself here and now and therefore aware, that means awareness is present!
You need not try to reach, cultivate or be what you already are right now. Just realize that right here and now you are and remain aware.
You know that you are and you like it. You are this undeniable unchanging presence of awareness that is self-shining as your own self and being.

The true Guru will only say what I am saying now.
He knows this to be True and that you need absolutely nothing new for Freedom. Here and now you are already the Self.
There is no bondage but only a false notion of being bound. Just like a false mirage of water in the desert that doesn't exist.

On the other hand usually looking holy and spiritual, the Self-appointed Gurus will keep Seekers on a Seeking path
for they are much more concerned with themselves, with gratification, writing books and selling ignorance camouflaged as Truth to others,
than for their disciples to know this simple Truth, that they already are and always have been the Self, awareness and Free.

Realize that if you are asked or required to pay for Freedom, you are only buying ignorance instead. It all works in reverse.
Freedom is here. All you need is to realize that to simply be aware is awareness and that is the Self that is sought-after, that is all.
How much time and effort does it take to know that you are present here and now and therefore aware of being?
Isn't it 'I' am certain and therefore awareness of being present or present-awareness needs no proof.

Who is not aware of himself? You know that you are, and you like it.
The Self is awareness of being, it is that 'I' am you know.

Ignorance about one's true nature is the only obstruction to Freedom. Not knowing how close awareness always is.
Nothing new, special or spiritual is to be freshly acquired, only to realize that to simply be aware is awareness and the Reality.

Just like space is always ever-present, so common, so familiar and so ordinary to everybody.
So dear and so near. The Self is plain ordinary everyday awareness or the naturally activity of being aware,
cognizant and knowing that you are.

Existence is present as pure awareness of being even though one cannot see it. Who is not aware of himself?
The experience is always here and now. Awareness is the activity of knowing that you are present, that you exist.

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

Just like a finger pointing to the moon is not the moon.
Many people will worship messengers waiting for something new, special or spiritual to happen and overlook the message.
While the messengers must die, the impermanent cannot remain present and will always come and go. Take it for granted.

This timeless message of non-duality or Oneness and Freedom remains the exact same.
Obviously the one who do not speak cannot tell you the Truth. 

If you want to know what the Secret to Freedom that the Guru knows that you don't know, it is very simple! Are you aware?
Look at your own self and realize that you are aware and remain aware. You know that you are present because awareness is present.
That is IT! That is the final realization, that you are that present-awareness or undeniable awareness of being present

which you have always known so well your entire Life as your own being or 'I' am. The Self is 'I' am.

The True Guru will only say what I am saying now and point to 'I' am, to awareness of being present as the Reality.
Spiritual people will protest that ultimate Truth couldn't be that simple, it couldn't be it, it has to be much more than this, but there isn't!
Strongly attached to preconceived ideas they have created about Freedom. People Seeking the Self cannot accept that the Self is nothing special.

The paradox is that one's true nature is nothing extra-ordinary but in fact paradoxically so extremely common, familiar and ordinary to oneself.
That is the only trouble for spiritual people Seeking the Self, they wish to see the Self as something new, as a blazing light, but it is not.
Nothinge new or spiritual. To simply be aware is unchanging awareness and that is one's true nature and the Self.

Just like a cloud is only covering up the ever-present self-shining Sun. Reality is always present.
Only the 'veil' of ignorance is to be removed with understanding for one's true nature to be revealed. That is all.

Therefore understanding what is being pointed to as the eternal, is to hear this timeless message and end the Search for wholeness.
After all, isn't it wiser to know the Truth for oneself, than spending years foolishly worshipping an impermanent messenger or the finger?
As the old saying goes; the finger pointing to the moon is not the moon, therefore the one who holds on to the finger will always miss the moon.

Freedom is always here! It is not to be freshly acquired.
Unless you are given clear understanding and correct pointers to one's unchanging true nature,
how can you know what is simply being pointed to as the Self and Reality, and therefore recognize it always undeniably present in you?

You must hear and understand what this message is truly all about, simply all about awareness undeniably present and unchanging as 'I' am.
Some self-appointed Gurus will sell silence to Seekers, but what can silence do for you, but only keep you longer 'veiled' in ignorance?

After all, the Secret to Freedom, is that there is no bondage.

Obviously not everybody wants to know the Truth and end the Search,
some people are so hypnotized or conditioned to believe they are bound, they will refuse to see it!
Tell a Seeker that they are already the Self and Free here and now, they go up in arms. They are so attached to ignorance.

Freedom is between you and yourself. Thou Art That.
The Search starts with you and ends with you. You already are what you Seek.
No one can give you what you already are right here and now, only point to it, take or leave it.
You must decide if you want to be a worshipper until you die or know the simple Truth about yourself.

There is a will, there is a way by removing ignorance and therefore stop the endless search for your true nature
that you have never lost at any time. Get to know your real self and you know the Truth! You are awareness.

Freedom is not the acquisition of anything new or special, but only recognizing that awareness or being aware is one's true nature.
Awareness is very familiar and therefore very subtle and simply overlooked until pointed to and recognized as being one's true self and being.

Know the Truth! There is no bondage and there is no liberation. In fact unchanging awareness or the Self
is simply what you have always known yourself to be. Yourself here and now is that presence of awareness itself! It is 'I' am.

You could ask if there is nothing new at all or anything different or special to acquire for Freedom,
then why do people wear white robes and pretend to have reached 'enlightenment'? Simple! It is all for show.
I do not stress this enough! Beware of spiritual Teachers and Religious Gurus, they are not at all, what you believe them to be.
Paradoxically, perpetuating the illusion of separation and duality, so many will always point away from this Oneness and Reality, not to it at all.

Some self-appointed Gurus will tell their disciples to do this and to do that, to take care of the Guru financial needs and devote themselves to them,
others to keep quiet, to seek stillness through meditations and that to reach the Self and Freedom is by going beyond the 'mind' or to kill the 'ego'.

What 'mind'? What 'ego'? Look for them and they will not be found. That is the way to get rid of them!

Don't wait for Freedom, who waits dies. Remove ignorance only by investigating what is real. See the false as false.

Other self-appointed Gurus will convince their disciples to deny their own self and being, to foolishly believe that there is no one present
and that they don't exist, but that is all only a lie. In fact it is the complete opposite, 'you' yourself are the One and existence itself. You are that.

The Self is in fact simply being oneself. To be yourself is to be the Self, no separation. Same presence of being-ness, same presence of existence.
No one can deny being, no one can negate one's own self and negate one's own existence even though one cannot see it. 'I' exist, 'I' am is certain.
'I' is not different or separated from the Infinite Self. Know yourself. The Reality, the Self, He or awareness is that 'I' am you know so well.

You are the Oneness, you are the eternal and you always exist. You are existence itself. You yourself are the imperishable Self itself.
Known to all as 'I' am. Knowing that you are present is in fact knowing your true self. One's own existence is in fact the Divine.

To be or not to be? Awareness is present because no one can deny one's own being. Everybody knows that they are.
Present-awareness. Everybody knows 'I' am and yet doesn't know the Self. A strange paradox.
'I' am is certain and that undeniable awareness of being present needs no proof.

Existence is the same as happiness and happiness is the same as being.
Existence present is consciousness. Awareness of being present is 'I' am and bliss.

Instead of looking for the Self or awareness far and away, turn toward yourself.
Turn toward your own being and realize that awareness is what you have always been and are.
It is simply the most obvious, it is that 'I' or 'I' am you know. 'I' is not a finite self but in fact the Infinite Self.

To simply be aware here and now is the Self and the awareness that is sought-after, closer than close to oneself.
Awareness is one's indivisible true nature. So dear and so near. It is 'I' am.

After all, did you know that one's true nature means it is unchanging? How far can one's true nature be from oneself if it is unchanging?
Ponder this! It is always there! That is the meaning of 'true' nature, that which is real, constant or unchanging with oneself is one's true nature.
Therefore to recognize what is the real presence of awareness that doesn't come and go anywhere is to know the Truth.

To simply be aware is itself this presence of awareness that doesn't come and go anywhere. Awareness just is. Pure awareness of being.
Reality is at once being and consciousness, nothing new or special but so common and familiar to anyone,
undeniably present as one's own everyday self and being, it is 'I' am.

What is sought-after as the Self is simply that, present-awareness or the undeniable activity of being conscious and knowing that you are present.
Everybody knows the Self so well already. Everybody knows that they are. Who is not aware of himself?
Awareness of being present is present-awareness and that is one's true nature. That is all.

Like a fish in the water crying that he is thirsty.
You will laugh at yourself when you realize that you yourself have always been what you have been looking for.

Awareness of being is bliss. Existence is the same as happiness and happiness is the same as being.
Be content with what you are sure of and the only thing you are absolutely sure of is the fact of your own being, you know that you are.
Therefore if you are aware of being present or to exist, then awareness is undeniably present as the knowing that you are and that is IT.

What more do you want when awareness is no-thing? You are that right now! Call off the Search.
Simple changeless awareness of being present as oneself is one's true nature. That is all. Just this and nothing else.
Realize that you are aware and remain aware and that is unchanging awareness or the Self, that is the Reality you read about in holy books.
Not a spiritual blazing light or something new or special, but simply unchanging awareness. So subtle, awareness is so near and so dear, it is 'I' am.

Again to simply be aware naturally or the activity of being conscious is to be the Self. Awareness present is the Self and one's true nature.
If you are unconscious, you are not aware of being present as yourself, unconscious there is no knowing that you are, unaware of being or 'I' am.

To be or not to be?
To be conscious or to be unconscious? 'I' am or 'I' am not? Which one are you absolutely certain of?
Knowing that you are present or 'I' am is unchanging awareness of being present as oneself i.e present-awareness.
What is sought-after as the Infinite Self is consciousness and to simply be conscious naturally is itself this consciousness.
The One without a second is this presence of consciousness i.e simply being aware or awareness. That is the Oneness.

Not some extra-ordinary presence of consciousness hidden beyond so void or some illusory 'mind' that is yet to be achieved
but already undeniably present here and now naturally as plain ordinary everyday awareness of being present, as 'I' am. That is all.
That presence of awareness is existence itself and alone is the Oneness you read about in holy books, that 'I' am is consciousness
Therefore 'I' am that 'I' am is to know the Truth. Here and now you are that. Consciousness is the natural state.

Awareness is always present and unchanging with oneself as one's true nature. Why not prove it to yourself here and now. It is so easy!
Take a look at what is always undeniably present and unchanging with you, whenever you pause thoughts Reality is clearly self-revealed.

Just be still for a few moments, and investigate for yourself, look and see for yourself what remains present without any thoughts present.
What is it? Unchanging awareness of course. What else would it be but pure changeless being?

Pause thoughts and look at yourself and see!
Whenever thoughts are gone then the Self is self-revealed as pure unchanging awareness.
That is all it takes to know the Self. There is nothing easier and simpler than this. What can be easier than that?

How much time does it take to know one's 'true' or unchanging nature that doesn't come and go anywhere? Just be still and voila!
What is undeniably present without thoughts? Take a look. Isn't there an undeniable presence of awareness or awareness of being present?
You yourself are present as pure awareness of being. You are that changeless awareness. Be still and know that 'I' am is that present-awareness.

Didn't anyone tell you?
You are He, you are That, you are God, you are awareness.
You are aware of being present and that undeniable awareness of being present is the Self, you are that awareness.

The Self, He, Reality is never far away but simply present as the most obvious and most plain ordinary everyday awareness of being.

Everybody is always the Self, they simply don't realize that it is nothing new or special but plain everyday consciousness, awareness, being.
To simply be aware is to be the Self. To simply be conscious is consciousness, to be aware is awareness and that is pure changeless being.
The Self, He, the Reality is simply knowing that you are present as yourself, that undeniable being-ness is awareness of being or 'I' am.

When you are awake from sleep or wake up, you don't have to kick start awareness, you are aware ant that present-awareness i.e wakefulness,
is one's natural state, that is all. Realize that right here and now you are and remain aware all day long and that is the realization, you are that.
Awareness is just another name for you, since 'you' yourself are aware or therefore present-awareness, there is no need to cultivate it.

As some say, to be aware or awareness is closer to you than your own breath. So near, so familiar and so common to everybody. Indivisible.
To be awake is awareness. You are awareness, never changing or unchanging awareness which is simple changeless being.

To simply be awake like you do everyday is to be conscious, cognizant and therefore aware or aware-ness.
Who is not aware of himself? Each one knows that they are present and yet do not know awareness.
How can you know that you are present or aware of being, if you are unconscious? Ponder this.

The greatest joke of it all, is the ignorant people that worship other people believing them to have acquired or reach something special or spiritual.
When in fact, all along to simply be aware of being present as oneself naturally or present-awareness has always been the Self they long for.
Nothing new, nothing special or spiritual. Everybody Seeking the Self has always been the Self, they simply don't realize it.
Not knowing that to be aware or awareness is the Self itself is the only bondage, ignorance.

The funny paradox is that the more holy, the more special and 'Enlightened' a self-appointed Guru appears to you.
The more water they are selling by the River. Ignorance is the only reason someone will play the Guru.
The wise knows that if you ever see a 'Buddha' on the road, kill him. It is only for show.

Bondage is only believing the false to be true.
See the false as false, if not you will miss it by foolishly believing illusion to be Reality.
The Self or Reality is always present with you, so near and so dear that if you look for it, you are only looking away from it.

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

Why not end the search for the Self that was never lost once and for all? Take a look at yourself! Are you aware?
Are you undeniably conscious and aware of being present here and now. 'I' am is certain, you undeniably know that you are?
If you cannot negate being. Congratulation you are 'Enlightened', that present-awareness or awareness of being present alone is the Self. That is all.

After all, 'I' am is always with you, you know that you are, 'I' am is certain. The Self or consciousness is indeed present.
Not hard or difficult, paradoxically Freedom is very easy! Who is not aware of himself? The Self is constant awareness of being.
Unbroken 'I'. Consciousness present is 'I' am. No one can deny one's own self.

Did you know that to be awake is to be conscious and therefore this is the undeniable activity of being aware and that is present-awareness?

The Self is not known only because of ignorance. Ignorance is just like a cloud covering up the Self-shining Sun of present-awareness.
Awareness is already undeniably present, therefore understanding is all. Nothing else is required to get rid of this ignorance.
Freedom has never been the acquisition of anything new, but only the removal of ignorance.

Once you understand or realize that to simply be aware is the present-awareness being pointed to as one's true nature.
You can call off the Search. After all, you are aware anyhow, what else can you do but be what you already are here and now?
What effort do you make to be aware? Realize that you are and remain aware. That is the Self, unchanging awareness.

Unless you understand what is being pointed to as Reality or the Self is awareness, you are seemingly in bondage to ignorance.
Clearly pointed to, understanding what this awareness truly is, is so easy. If you are open to child-like simplicity, you will laugh at the joke of it all.
No time or effort is required because awareness is always present naturally, simply overlooked until pointed to and recognized as one's true nature.

Awareness is the natural state of being. Take the effortless activity of seeing. Seeing is being. What effort do you make to see?
Realize that undeniably Seeing is itself being aware and being aware is the activity of seeing. Indivisible, awareness present and Seeing are One.
The Self is the Seer, same with hearing, knowing and everything else, the Self or the presence of awareness is the hearer, the knower etc.

So simple and so familiar to everybody is the Self or awareness, awareness is ever-present and unchanging,
therefore very subtle and simply overlooked until pointed to.

One's true nature is the undeniable awareness present or present-awareness that is undeniably registering and therefore cognizing
all natural activities before you can even name them or label them. You must be aware first and foremost for anything else to be.
How many thoughts, feelings and experiences can you have or be aware of, if you are not present i.e conscious or aware?

In other words to be aware is present-awareness itself, that presence of awareness is one's true nature.
Awareness of being present is the unchanging registering presence or changeless substratum and the core of one's being.
Knowing that you are present is present-awareness. First and foremost awareness is present and unchanging, it is first hand, always primary.

Another name for this present-awareness or the Self is simply plain ordinary everyday wakeful-ness. Realize that to be awake is to be aware.
This wakefulness is not a transient state but the constant knowing that you are present, this undeniable awareness of being present is 'I' am.

Awareness is one's true nature. To be aware is this awareness. It is pure awareness of being.
Awareness is simple changeless being. Who is not aware of being? You know that you are because you are aware.
You are aware because you know that you are. Awareness is the constant knowing that you are present or pure changeless being.
How can you kiss yourself? Awareness present is to know that you are present or 'I' am. Awareness of being is at once the Self and 'I' am.
You already are what you Seek to find, look at yourself. It is here and now, it is that 'I' am you know so well.

Ultimate Truth is so simple! What effort do you make to be aware? Aren't you aware anyhow?
Therefore being aware doesn't need to be cultivated, awareness is already present here and now, it is 'I' am.

People Seeking the Self and Freedom are only doing so, because they do not know and understand what the Self and Freedom is truly all about.
There is no becoming or reaching the Self. Only ignorance is to be removed for Freedom, nothing else. Wisdom is Freedom. Understanding is all.
Awareness is present as 'I' am. One only believes that there is bondage and separation, because he doesn't know himself
and therefore doesn't understand what non-duality and Oneness is truly all about, that 'I' am that 'I' am.

The Secret to Freedom is that ignorance is the only obstacle to get rid off for Freedom.
Remove ignorance only and you have done all that needed to be done.

While the ignorant is 'veiled' and always looks away from the Self by seeking to find the Self as something new, special or extra-ordinary.
The wise that understands what is simply being pointed to as the Reality, effortlessly realizes that the Self is nothing new or special at all,
but that in fact this unchanging presence of awareness or the Self is what he has always been and are, it is simply one's own self, it is 'I' am.

Freedom is always here, 'I' and awareness or the Self are One. No difference whatsoever, 'I' is not different from the 'Lord'.
Ignorance is the only illusion of duality and bondage. The realization is simply that 'mind' and 'ego' do not exist. There is no duality.
You are the Oneness already, only seemingly dividing consciousness into this and that concept, creates the illusion of duality and separation.

Being oneself naturally is in fact being the Infinite Self. That is all.
Like a burned rope or a mirage of water in the desert that is believed to be real, one only believes there is 'mind' and 'ego' present.
When in fact there is only Oneness or non-duality present as oneself. That realization is itself Freedom from all bondage.

Everybody is always the Self and nothing else or the Oneness itself this very moment, because of ignorance they don't realize it.
Investigate, look for a 'mind' and 'ego' and they will not be found, then what binds you? Look for your 'chains', that is the way to get rid of them.
Look for them and you will realize that you have always been the Infinite Self and Free.

Some people believe that Freedom is hard or difficult and yet to be acquired when in fact it is simply being oneself.
Nothing new or special whatsoever is fleshly acquired for Freedom, only ignorance is dropped.
See the false as false and you have done all that needed to be done.

If you ever wonder what people that have recognized this simple Truth about themselves were talking about as Oneness or non-duality.
That is it, that here and now you are that. The realization is that Freedom is not about becoming anything new or special at all,
but in fact only all about the removal of ignorance, just this and nothing else.

The Self or Reality that is sought-after is never far away from oneself
but paradoxically always undeniably present closer than close to oneself. Reality is pure changeless being.
Realize that to simply be aware is awareness itself or the Self and that is one's thoughtless unchanging true nature.

The Self, He or the Reality is the naturally activity of being aware and remaining aware, simply pure awareness of being.
Awareness is unbroken 'I' or the constant knowing that you are.

'I' am is certain. Pure awareness of being or knowing that you are here and now is 'I' am and that is the Self.
Present-awareness or awareness of being present as oneself is 'I' am. Everybody knows the Self so well already.
Who is not aware of himself?

Awareness is undeniably present because you are aware of being present.
You are only aware of being present because awareness is present, therefore 'you' and awareness are One and the same presence.
To be present is to be aware and to be aware is to know for certain that you are present. It is 'I' am.

People want to see the Self or awareness as something new or different, but how can it be so when it is present as oneself?
You are that very familiar, common, ordinary presence of awareness or this undeniable awareness of being present as yourself itself right now.

You and awareness are One. Therefore how can you kiss yourself? When you already are awareness or the Self itself this very moment?
Freedom is already here and always have been, why should one Seek awareness! No one can become what they have always been and are.

Only ignorance is to be removed for Freedom with understanding. Realize that there is no becoming or attaining anything new.
Not far away but closer than close. To be aware is awareness and you are that! Awareness is another name for you.

The easiest way to recognize this presence of unchanging awareness is to be still.
Pause thoughts and effortlessly pure awareness remains self-revealed, as one's thoughtless true nature.

The funny paradox is that the one who Seeks the Self or this presence of awareness as something new, special, spiritual or extra-ordinary
always looks away from it and overlooks the most obvious. That which always is present and unchanging with oneself.
That present-awareness which doesn't come and go anywhere alone is the Reality.

Nothing new, special or far away. Paradoxically so near and so dear.
The Self or one's unchanging true nature is pure awareness of being. It is 'I' am.

The realization is that being aware is awareness itself and that alone is the Self that is sought-after. The thoughtless Reality.
To simply be aware or awareness is one's true nature. Everybody is always the Self, they simply don't realize it.
After all, awareness is undeniably present here and now, because you know that you are and you like it.
Who is not aware of being? Awareness of being is bliss. Reality is 'I' am.

People spend an entire lifetime chasing after illusion, believing the false to be true.
While the Reality is always undeniably present within their own dwelling.

The honest pointer will only say what I am saying now. You are the Self already. To simply be aware is the Self.
Realize that you are and remain aware, that is all. There is nothing simpler than Freedom itself.
Simply because there is absolutely nothing you have to do, to be aware.
'I' am is certain and that awareness of being needs no proof.

Be wise and understand that Freedom is not to be achieved, but already present here and now.
All that is necessary is to remove the 'veil' of ignorance by understanding
that the Self you Seek to know is truly your own self and being.

Now don't be a fool and believe a single word I say, for the word is not the thing. The word sugar is not sweet.
You yourself must investigate for yourself what is Real and unchanging with you, no one else can do that and see it for you but you.

Don't wait or leave it up to another time, to another person, place or some holy Guru, but instead turn within
toward your own self and being and take a good look at yourself and see.

Inquire, question, investigate. The only way to know the Truth for yourself is to prove it to yourself.
The false notion of bondage cannot stand up to investigation and on inquiry 'who' is bound,
like a mirage of water in the desert, the illusion of bondage dissolves instantly.

Know thyself. Unfortunately most people will not do this investigation or self inquiry.
Therefore never seeing the dream as a dream. Most people die with a false notion of bondage and separation.
Kicking and screaming. When all along they were never bound but always eternally Free.

Some ignorant Seekers believe the Self is silence, when in fact it is pure unchanging awareness.
The Self is existence. Existence is the presence of consciousness. Consciousness is awareness of being.
Awareness of being is 'I' am. Therefore the Self is simply being oneself, it is 'I' am.

Realize that cognizing is being aware or conscious. Awareness is being. Unconscious there is no presence of awareness and therefore no 'I' am.
Reality is at once being and consciousness, undeniably present as constant or unchanging awareness of being. You know that you are.
Awareness is present. The Self or awareness is the activity of being aware of all natural activities and knowing that you are present.
The activity of being aware is present-awareness and the Self. You are unchanging awareness, that is what 'I' am represents.

Nothing new, special or far away but so familiar, common and ordinary. To be awake or wakeful is to be conscious and therefore aware of being.
Awareness present is knowing that you are present. Present-awareness is this undeniable awareness of being present, it is 'I' am present.
So simple! Seeing is being the Self, hearing is being the Self, the Self is the natural activity of being aware or the presence of awareness.
To simply be aware is present-awareness or the Self. You are awareness.

You and this natural effortless everyday activity of simply being aware or present-awareness are One. Indivisible.
Ultimate Truth is so simple, so ordinary and so obvious. Who is not aware and therefore knows himself present as 'I' am?
The Self, He, That or whatever name you want to call the simple natural activity of being conscious and therefore aware of being present,
are just different names for your unchanging true nature, for this undeniable presence of consciousness, awareness and knowing that you are.

Who is not aware of himself?
Each one knows 'I' am and yet doesn't know the Self.

Awareness is just another name for 'you'. To be aware is 'I' am and 'I' am is to be aware.
Never far away but present closer than close to oneself always. To simply be aware is this awareness.
Awareness of being is the Self. That is all, ultimate Truth is so simple, it is laughable. Some call it a cosmic joke.
You will only laugh at yourself for Seeking the Self.

Some people spend years doing silent meditations and silent retreats, striving to go beyond the 'mind'.
Yet what 'mind' is there is you don't think about? What 'mind' is there is you pause thoughts? Just be still and you are there!
That is all that is required to go beyond the 'mind' and recognize the Self, just be still and voila! What can be any easier than that?

The Self is nothing other than plain common, ordinary everyday awareness, just this and nothing else is one's true nature.
Simple changeless being is unchanging awareness and one's true nature. You are aware because you know that you are and you like it.

Understanding is all. The Seeker has no clue that to simply be aware is the Self. What else would it be? Ponder this.
What does anyone believe the Self is? A blazing light? What imaginary concept do people have about the Self and Reality?
If the Self or Reality wasn't already present here and now, then it would mean that it is not already here
and that it is yet to be freshly acquired and therefore cannot be Reality but be impermanent.

Present here and now. The Self or awareness is not reached, you are already that awareness.
Call off the Search. Simply Realize that here and now you are aware anyhow and therefore you need not try to be.
The Self is already present here and now. You are aware this very moment and therefore there is no need to reach or cultivate awareness.

Just like space awareness is very sublte. To look for it, is to look away from it. To know the Self look at your own being. Are you aware?
The Self is simply awareness of being. If you know that you are present as yourself, then you are already undeniably aware of being.
'I' am is certain. That knowing-ness that you are present or present-awareness is the Self, therefore why should one Seek it?
Look at yourself. Look at your own being. You know that you are and you like it, that is all.

To be aware is awareness. It is an undeniable natural activity that is happening presently. Here and now you are that present-awareness.
Awareness of being is the natural activity of existence itself. Existence, consciousness is always present here and now. It is Life itself.

The Search itself is the Trap, simply because Seeking implies 'Time'. But existence or Life is truly happening here and now only.
Consciousness is the Mystery we all love to be. If you remove that natural activity of existence or consciousness from the body right now.
Like unplugging the Power. You end up with a dead body.

Realize the simple Truth about yourself!
That you are not the living organism made of the five elements, but in fact the unseen presence of Life itself.

The false notion, 'I' am the body is wrong knowledge about oneself. That wrong knowledge must go.
'I' am the unseen Living presence or consciousness in the body is the realization.
You are the undeniable presence, power and intelligence we call Life.

Just like a light bulb cannot shine without power.
The Self is the unseen consciousness, living-ness or power present in the body here and now. Consciousness is the real presence of existence.
The Self is the unseen presence of consciousness beating you heart and shining through your eyes here and now naturally, we call it Life.
To be alive and conscious is awareness of being present and that undeniable existence, being-ness or 'I' am-ness is the Self.

Here and now you are that.
The one would Seeks to find Reality as something new is 'veiled' and will only look away from the Self.
Never found from worshipping dead people, Gurus, graveyards and ashes. But undeniably present naturally here and now with oneself as Life itself.

The true Beloved is one's very own existence itself, it is pure awareness of being. The experience is always here and now, presently.
No one can give you what you already are right now, anymore than one can deny one's own self and being.
Everybody knows 'I' am. One's very own undeniable existence is itself the Divine.

The Self cannot be found in the Graveyard of the past, for the past is dead. Only discovered presently as pure changeless being, right here and now.
Realize that Life is always unfolding presently, past and future do not exist. The actuality is that there is only this present moment of existence.
The actuality of one's being-ness or true existence is always now. One's real existence is always right now presently.
Existence is timeless, it is always now. Here and now you are the Self. It is that 'I' am you know so well.

Life is Now only.
Not a moment ago or the next moment. No one can ever escape the present moment of existence.
Only when mentally recalling the past or projecting anticipations that seemingly the illusion of time is created.

Yet what past and future is there, if you don't think about it?
Therefore is you pause thoughts, only the eternal Now remains present as the Reality.

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

Ultimate Truth is so simple!
The question is, can you handle the simple Truth?
It is so simple that you will laugh at yourself for trying to discover the Self.

Are you awake or aware right here and now? Then awareness is present or present-awareness.
Here and now you are that. Awareness of being present is 'I' exist, 'I' am undeniably present and aware of being.
The Self is 'I' am present or present-awareness. 'I' am is certain! Plain ordinary everyday awareness of being. Everybody knows that they are.

No one can negate one's own existence even though one cannot see it. No one can negate being. Awareness of being is bliss.

To be or not to be? 'I' am or 'I' am not?
'I' and awareness are One. You are this presence of awareness. No duality.
Everybody awake or aware is always the Self, everybody knows 'I' am. They simply don't realize it.
People Seek the Self far and away when in fact the goal and final Reality is that 'I' am everybody knows so well.

The natural state of being.
To simply be aware is awareness and the Self is that natural presence of awareness itself. That is all.
Awareness is another name for 'you'. Here and now 'you' yourself are that, present and aware.
There isn't anyone who doesn't know and say 'I' am. Pure awareness of being is 'I' or 'I' am.

Freedom is not becoming anything new. One only believes that there is bondage, when in fact there is no bondage.
Understanding is all. No time and no effort is necessary for Freedom. There is no waiting or striving of any kind.

Freedom is to simply know the Truth and therefore get rid of ignorance. Ignorance is the only 'veil' of separation and illusion of duality.
All there is ever-present with oneself is only consciousness or Oneness, bondage is only when someone simply doesn't realize it.
If you believe yourself to be bound, then you are only bound to your belief. If you know you are Free then you are Free.

Ignorance is like the story of the ten foolish men, that grieved at the lost of the tenth man, that was never lost.
Why wasting time foolishly crying over nothing? Like the Fish in the water that is crying that he is thirsty.

Know the simple Truth, 'mind' and 'ego' do not exist, therefore bondage and liberation for 'whom' when you already are the Oneness?
What binds you? Have a look and see, that is the fastest way to realize that you already are and always have been ever-Free.
Only the false notion of separation is bondage, and that false notion alone must go.

The desire to know the Truth about oneself will surely be fulfilled.
To know who am 'I' is Freedom?

Do you know yourself?
Who are 'you', do you really know? Self inquiry is to find out if 'I' is a finite separate self or individual consciousness limited to the body 
or if 'I' is in fact the Infinite Self or Omni-present eternal Consciousness some call the big 'I' expressing itself as a small 'I'?
Remove all camouflage! Who is 'I' real identity, what is my true nature? Get to know your true nature and Reality.

The false notion of bondage and duality cannot stand up to investigation. Wisdom is Freedom. Ignorance is bondage.
Like a rope on the road is falsely believed to be a snake. What is Real? Take a closer look at your own self and remove ignorance.
Wisdom is the removal of ignorance and the 'veil', illusion or false notion of bondage dissolves, that is called liberation.

Just like the Infinite blue Sky is only an optical illusion.
Ultimately there is no such thing as a blue Sky, upon investigation it is revealed to be just an appearance.

Not to worry! You are always the Self and ever-Free, you simply only 'believe' yourself to be bound.
That is all, bondage is just a false 'belief'', so ultimately that you know the Truth or not,
makes absolutely no difference whatsoever, for you are already that anyhow.

Just like the story of the king that falls asleep on his thrown and forgets who he truly is, falsely believing that he is a lost beggar in a long dream.
Wake up by remembering who you truly are, that is all. Realize that 'you' yourself are always consciousness and therefore the Infinite Self itself.

Try to separate yourself from space. Where would you go? Just like it is virtually impossible to separate oneself from space.
It is absolutely impossible to be apart or separated from consciousness at anytime or place. It can never happen.
One's true nature is always Omni-present, never coming or going anywhere.

Consciousness cannot be acquired from others, but simply recognized ever-present in you, as you.
Realize that a Guru cannot give you anything new, that you don't have already for Freedom. In fact you need nothing.
All that anyone can do for another, is to simply point to this undeniable presence of consciousness, we all know so well as Life itself. That is all.
The finger will never be the moon, just like the pointer will never be the destination. Understanding what is being pointed as Reality is Freedom.

You don't have to pray, worship or practice anything at all for Freedom. In fact you don't have to wait or look far at all.
All blessings come from within, always turn toward your own self and being. Remove ignorance and know thyself.
Reality is only discovered when you turn toward Reality and it is nothing else but that 'I' or 'I' am you know.
You already are what you Seek to find. You being the Self want to know the Self.
How can you kiss yourself?

Freedom is not the acquisition of anything new, special or spiritual but only the removal of ignorance.
  Where the dishonest self-appointed Guru will mislead his disciples to falsely believe they are bound and must reach Freedom.
The True Guru knows you need nothing at all for Freedom, only to remove the false notion of being bound with understanding, that is all.

Only because of ignorance or not knowing how near and dear Reality always is to oneself. Like the Fish in the Ocean Searching for the Ocean.
The ignorant falsely believes the Self is something new, special or spiritual to become or yet to be acquired and therefore seeks it far away.

Know the Truth and realize that Freedom is not given, sold, taught, acquired or transmitted, but in fact what you are. Here and now you are that.
The One without two is 'you'. Wisdom is Freedom. The wise understood that simply being oneself is in fact being the Self.
Reality is one's very own undeniable existence, it is pure awareness of being. It is 'I' or 'I' am.

See the false as false. Bondage and liberation do not exist, you are already the Self and free.
Only the false notion of bondage has to go for Freedom. Not becoming, reaching or attaining anything new or special.
Get rid of ignorance with understanding only, absolutely nothing else is required for Freedom from all bondage.

People that seek the true Beloved have heard the words you are the Self, you are He, you are That this very moment.
Yet they don't understand what is simply being pointed to as the Infinite Self and that the eternal is nothing new or far away,
but paradoxically so near and so dear to everyone alive, it is paradoxically so obvious here and now that it is easily overlooked.

Consciousness is never far away but so familiar and closer than close. Everybody wakes up 'Enlightened', they simply don't realize it.
To simply be conscious is itself pure awareness of being, therefore wakefulness is consciousness.
To be awake is to be aware and the Self.

Did you know the the Self or one's true nature is consciousness?
Did you know that to simply be conscious is this consciousness? Ignorance is the only obstacle to Freedom.
Look at yourself. Look at your own being. What effort do you have to make to be conscious right now, to be aware? None.

Awareness is undeniably present and remains present and unchanging. No one can deny being.
To be aware or awareness is at once consciousness and being, it is knowing that you are.
One's true nature is simply pure changeless being.

Like a wave cannot stand on it's own and ever be apart from the Ocean, but in fact all waves are nothing but the expression of the One Ocean.
There is no personal or individual presence of consciousness but paradoxically only One presence present in all.
That consciousness is the unseen presence of intelligence and unseen power we call Life.

Never far away but closer than close to oneself, the Self is simply common present-awareness or consciousness.
So easy to recognize the Self as one's true nature and eternal Reality. Just take a look at yourself and see.
Are you conscious or are you unconscious?

Are you awake? Are you aware of being present and therefore undeniably conscious? 'I' am is certain, you know that you are?
That is IT! Consciousness is undeniably present as present-awareness or pure unchanging awareness of being present,
to be conscious is this sought-after consciousness and consciousness is simply 'I' am.

'I' am that 'I' am.
To simply be conscious is to be aware of being present as oneself.
You are that knowing that you are present and this undeniable awareness of being present is known to all as 'I' am.

Realize that you aware and that you remain aware all day long.
That present-awareness is the consciousness that is sought after as the Self and the Reality.

Reality is always present as pure changeless being.
Because of ignorance the spiritual Seeker will go from place to place, Guru to Guru trying to acquire more spiritual knowledge

and learn new spiritual practices to become something new, something different or spiritual and always looking away from the Self and Reality.

The Self is always present with oneself naturally, it is one's natural state of being or present-awareness. Why should one Seek it?
Whatever is new and different will always be impermanent. Why spend years searching for anything new that will be gone eventually.
Isn't it wiser to get to know what always is present, unchanging and therefore eternal with oneself instead?

The Search is itself the Trap. Make no effort. Freedom is always here!
Simply understand that the Seeker is in fact the Sought and call off the Search.
One's own self is not a finite separate self but in fact the Infinite Self,
there is no separation and therefore no duality in Omni-presence.

Understanding is all. Remove ignorance.
One only Seeks Freedom simply because the ignorant Seeker falsely believes that there is bondage and separation,
but in fact there is no bondage and no separation at all, only Oneness or non-duality is always Omni-present with oneself as consciousness.

What is sought-after as the Self, He, the eternal Reality is consciousness.
Where can you find it? Look at yourself, Look at your own being, you know that you are.


Consciousness is undeniably present as pure awareness of being or 'I' am.
Like a finger pointing to the moon. Consciousness cannot be freshly acquired simply because it is already present.
You cannot become what you have always been and are. Consciousness can simply be pointed out to be recognized as one's true nature and Reality.

Consciousness is the destination pointed to, that you have never left.
Here is the Open Secret to Freedom. Call off the Search, you are already that consciousness right here and now.
So dear and so near. To Seek it, is always to look away from it. To simply be conscious is this consciousness some call the Self, that is all.

Who is not aware of himself? Consciousness is the Self.
Ignorance is the only obstacle to realizing that simply being alive and conscious is always being Self.
The Self is nothing other than the presence of consciousness or Life itself. It is pure awareness of being. That alone is the Reality.

One's very own existence is the Divine. The Self is one's very own being here and now. The Self is 'I' am.
Who is not aware of being? 'I' am is the goal and final Reality. 'I' am that 'I' am is the final Real-'I'-zation.

The state called 'Realization' is simply being oneself naturally. Not becoming anything new.
To simply be aware and to remain aware is the Self and one's true nature.

Just like the story of the ten foolish men crying at the lost of the tenth man, that was never lost.
Nothing new is to be gained whatsoever, because nothing was ever lost, just overlooked.

Just like a finger pointing to the moon. Without wanting anything at all for himself.
The honest pointer or true Guru will only say what I am saying now, the true Guru knows you need nothing at all, not even him.

There is absolutely nothing easier than to recognize the Self or one's thoughtless unchanging true nature and Reality, it is laughable.
Just be still, pause thoughts and voila! What remains present without thoughts is the Self. Take a good look and see!
You are that awareness itself which is undeniably present and unchanging.

Without coming and going anywhere but remaining undeniably present as pure being, awareness just is.
What remains present naturally and effortlessly is one's thoughtless true nature, pure unchanging awareness.

Present-awareness or awareness of being present is the undeniable Reality present. Be still and know that 'I' am is the Self.
That is all, nothing new or special whatsoever. Pure changeless being, nothing else.
Ultimate Truth is so simple.

One only 'believes' that there is bondage.
Paradoxically, there is no bondage other than the 'belief' of being bound. Ignorance is the culprit.
Get rid of ignorance, which is simply the false notion of being bound by investigating what binds you, so simple isn't it?

That is the fastest and easiest way to get rid of your 'chains'.
Look for them and they will not be found.

So dear and so near, present closer than close to oneself. Most people Seeking the Self have no idea, that the Self is simply existence itself.
Realize that the Self or consciousness is already present naturally and effortlessly with everybody alive, simply because it is Life itself.

You are present because consciousness is present.
He, the Self or consciousness or this living presence wasn't already present with oneself, you would dead.
There couldn't be no ice without water and therefore there couldn't be no Life without consciousness present also.
The Self or consciousness is the Spirit of Life itself functioning the body and self-shining trough your very eyes here and now.

No one can deny being alive. Awareness of being is bliss, everybody knows that they are alive and love to be.
Consciousness is present as pure awareness of being, that undeniable knowing that you are alive, that you exist is 'I' am.
Who am 'I'? Here and now you are consciousness. You are the Self, you are Life, you are He, you are That. It is 'I' am.

Attached to ignorance and strongly believing that Freedom is the acquisition of something new or special.
Some ignorant Seekers are so veiled that they desire to acquire the Self from others as something new, special or spiritual.
Foolishly believing that some self-appointed Guru is the Reality and can give them consciousness through spiritual transmissions.

Some people want to believe that other human beings are special beings. There is only One being-ness, One existence, On consciousness, One Life.
One Power. That is what Omni-Presence is truly all about, there is only One presence of existence or Living intelligence called consciousness
.
There is nobody more or less, higher or lower in Omni-Presence, but only One presence of existence present in all, we call this Mystery Life.
The Oneness is Life itself! He, the Self, God is consciousness and consciousness is Life. That is all it is.

Closer than close. The Self is beating your heart this very moment and shining through your eyes. Seeing is being the Self.
You are not the body. You are the presence of consciousness or Living-ness present in the body. You are Life itself!

The natural state of being.
Just like a light bulb cannot shine of itself without electricity.
The Self is the Living Power present in the body. The unseen presence of intelligence functioning all.
Your body is the temporary temple for this unseen presence of consciousness, this unseen Living-ness or Spirit of Life is present in you, as you.

No separation or duality. You are existence itself. Who is not aware of himself? One's very own undeniable existence is the Divine.
Consciousness is nothing more than that undeniable common ordinary presence of awareness or awareness of being present as 'you'!

'I' am is the goal and final Reality. Present-awareness. Simply being aware of being present as oneself. The Self is 'I' am.
'I' exist, 'I' am is the undeniable Reality no one can ever deny and be apart from, it is pure changeless being.
That awareness of being is one's true nature and Reality. Awareness of being is bliss.

Many self-appointed Gurus will keeper Seekers bound to ignorance and point away from the simple Truth and Reality for gratification and money.
Beware of dishonest self-appointed Gurus that will entice Seekers to foolishly believe that they don't exist or that there is no one present.

No one can honestly say 'I' don''t exist', 'I' am not' and therefore negate one's very own existence, even though one cannot see it.
When in Fact 'you' yourself are the One and existence itself. One's very own undeniable existence is in fact the Self and the eternal Reality.
The Self is present as pure awareness of being, 'I' exist is certain.
'I' and the Infinite Self are One and the same presence.

Who is not aware of being?
The Self is existence and existence is the same as being.
Awareness of being, is the bliss of the Self. It is pure existence, it is 'I' am.

Never far away but closer to oneself than one can ever imagine, Life is one's true nature. Awareness of being alive and present is the Self.
The Self is consciousness and consciousness is not to be acquired from others. It is impossible to acquire anything new for Freedom.
The Self is one's own existence here and now and existence is undeniably present here and now as your own self and being.

To know one's true nature is not hard or difficult but paradoxically so easy. The more open you are to simplicity the faster you will end your Search.
The Seekers only obstacle to Freedom is to falsely believe that Freedom is not already present and therefore to be reached in a future time.
Again, all that is necessary to recognize the Self or pure unchanging awareness is to be still for a few moments, that is all, so simple.

Just pause thoughts and the Self remains effortlessly self-revealed as pure changeless awareness of being, that is all. Be still and you are there!
Awareness is nothing new or special. Only ignorance is to be removed for Freedom, that is all, get rid of ignorance. Just this and nothing else.
Freedom is here. Ignorance is the only obstacle to Freedom. To be aware is awareness and you are that awareness.

There is no becoming the Self or acquiring anything new or special for Freedom.
Freedom is when you understand and stop searching for what you have always been and are, yourself.
Only ignorance is to be removed with understanding, the realization is that you already are the Self and eternally Free.

Understanding is all. Nothing else is required to remove the 'veil' of ignorance. Understanding is Wisdom.
Wisdom is Freedom. Ignorance is the only illusion of separation, duality and bondage.

If you understand that to simply be aware is pure unchanging awareness, then you know the Self.
You are that presence of awareness that is undeniably present and known to all as pure awareness of being, as 'I' am.


Everybody has known the Self their entire Life, everybody has been the Self their entire Life. There couldn't be ice without water.
Reality is the unseen presence of consciousness or existence that expresses itself as pure awareness of being. Reality is known as 'I' am.
No one can deny being. Awareness is present and that itself is the natural activity of knowing that you are.
Who is not aware of himself? 'I' am is certain and needs no proof.

To understanding this alone, is Freedom.

Many Seekers have been mislead by self-appointed Gurus
to foolishly believe that the Self was something new, special or spiritual.
Something that is yet to be freshly acquired, but it is NOT. It is simply Life itself.

Ultimate Truth is so simple. 
To know the Self is very easy. No time or effort is required at all.
Just understanding or realizing or recognizing that simply being aware is awareness
and that this natural unchanging presence of awareness is itself, one's thoughtless true nature.

Therefore you are and have always been awareness or the Self your entire Life, you simply didn't realize it.
Thou Art That. Here and now you are aware and that is IT! Present-awareness. Awareness is present and unchanging.

You will laugh at yourself for striving to discover the Self. It is so simple, so obvious and so easy, it is laughable.
Never lost or apart but closer than one can ever imagine, the Self that is sought-after is truly one's own self. It is 'I' am.
Nothing new, different or special. The only bondage for the ignorant Seeker is not knowing how close the Truth is.

Never far away or apart but closer than close to oneself always.
A strange paradox. Only a rare few realized that this undeniable awareness of being or present-awareness is the Reality.
Not because is something special or spiritual reserved to a rare few, but paradoxically because is it so obvious, so simple and so ordinary.
Remove ignorance, that is all that needs to be done for Freedom. Simply investigate and get rid of ignorance by getting to know your real self.

Like a Fish always in the Ocean searching everywhere for the Ocean.
Most Seekers cannot accept that the Infinite Self and absolute Reality could simply be this.
The Seeker wants to see the Self as something new, special or spiritual, as a blazing light.

Yet it is that simple. Consciousness is indeed already present here and now as 'I' am.
Look at yourself. Look at your own being. Pure awareness of being is the Self or consciousness.
You know that you are. That is all. That is the Self. Awareness of being is 'I' am.

Consciousness is not reached or attained, it is already there. It is the presence of Life itself.
That undeniable presence of consciousness is present as one's own existence and that is called Reality.
Everybody knows the Self. What is more obvious, more dear and more near than one's own existence? 'I' am is certain.

Who is not aware of himself?
The Self, He, the Reality or one's thoughtless true nature is consciousness. Pure awareness of being.
To be conscious is to awake and to be awake is to be aware. Awareness present is knowing that you are present, it is 'I' am.
Awareness is pure knowing or the unchanging activity of knowing. To be aware is to be cognizant and therefore awareness is being.
Awareness of being is one's thoughtless Reality. Reality is at once being and consciousness.

Closer than close to oneself, awareness is easily overlooked until pointed to and recognized as one's true self.
To get to know one's true unchanging nature is that easy. Simply realize that you are and remain aware. You are that awareness. That is all.
That unchanging awareness or present-awareness is undeniable and this alone is the Sought-after Reality some call the Self.
There is nothing more near and more dear to oneself than this familiar presence of awareness itself. Indivisible.

'I' and awareness are One. That is the Real-'I'-zation, that 'I' is awareness itself and already realized.
The Self is not reached. Being oneself naturally is already being the Self itself. Here and now Thou Art That literally.
Bondage and liberation do not exist. Only ignorance or the false notion of being bound is to be removed, that alone is called Freedom.
Look at yourself and realize that to simply be aware is being the Self. Get rid of ignorance and you have done all that needed to be done.

Investigate and question your beliefs. People strongly believe the false to be true and reject the simple Truth to be false.
See the false as false. Acquired spiritual and religious knowledge is the greatest ignorance.

That is the funny paradox. Spirituality and religions have nothing to do whatsoever with the Self and Reality.
People on sell spiritual beliefs and religious ideology or ignorance camouflaged as Truth to the ignorant Seeker, that is all.

After all, how could there be a God and 'you' in Omni-presence?
Wouldn't that concept of 'two' present, be alone the false notion of separation and duality?

There is no God and 'you', you are the One without two already. That is what Omni-presence or non-duality is all about.
The Seeker is the Sought! The one who wants to know God, the Self, He, the infinite or the Reality is already that.
Here and now you are that! How can you kiss yourself on your own lips?


Realize the simple Truth, that you already are and have always been the destination that you have never left.
Realize that the Seeker is the Sought. That is all. Thou Art That. Remove ignorance only, know that your own self is the Self.
Get rid of ignorance. Nothing else is necessary to know Freedom from all bondage. Ignorance is the only culprit.

Here and now you are that and have always the One without a second.
You are the Oneness already. Never far away but Omni-present closer than close.

The Reality, the Self and Freedom is always here! Look at your own self. Look at your own being.
The one who Seeks God, the Self, He, the Infinite or the Reality as something new or apart from himself is veiled.
You will always have people believing that God is something spiritual or religious when in fact it is only Life itself.

So busy worshipping the messenger or the finger pointing to the moon, many Seekers will never hear this simple message of non-duality,
of neither separation or bondage and therefore not knowing what is truly being pointing to as Freedom. That Wisdom is itself Freedom.
Only the false notion of being bound is the illusion of separation and bondage, ignorance is the only 'veil' to get rid off.

Freedom is when you finally understand or realize that simply being yourself is the Reality or the consciousness that you have been
searching to find as God or the Infinite Self. That here and now 'you' yourself are that. You are the Self. Then the search for wholeness is over.
The Search starts and ends with you, Gee! yoU aRe yoU. That is the final realization and the cosmic joke. You are what you Seek.

All along right under your nose so to speak.
Not hidden far away, but paradoxically undeniably always present with oneself as one's own being.
The 'Precious' or true 'Beloved' is always present closer than close to oneself as one's very own existence, as one's very own self and being.

The Self, Reality, He or consciousness will never be discovered as something new, something spiritual, religious or extra-ordinary.
Who ever tells Seekers that it is something new, special, spiritual or religious is only keeping people on a Seeking path and lying to them.

These people are paradoxically ignorant of the Self themselves and pointing others toward illusion and false imagination.

One's very now existence is the Divine. That is all. Consciousness is the real presence of existence.

The Self, He or God is Life itself, the Reality is consciousness and being, it is 'I' exist.
Everybody knows the Self so well already as pure changeless being, as 'I' am.

One's true nature is not something new or apart from oneself, why should one Seek it?
Consciousness is not reached or acquired, it is effortlessly undeniably present with oneself as existence and awareness of being.
There is absolutely nothing new, absolutely nothing religious or spiritual whatsoever is to be freshly acquired for Reality to be.
But to simply realize that you very own familiar self is itself this Omni-presence or the Self, you yourself are that.

Like a the Fish always in the Ocean Seeking everywhere for the Ocean.
Seeking for something that was never lost but paradoxically ever present closer than close to oneself.
You yourself already are and always have been the Oneness. It is yourself. You simply don't know it.

Ignorance is the only obstacle to the realization that you already are realized and Free. You are the Self.
Consciousness is one's true nature and eternal Reality. To simply be conscious is this consciousness.
To simply be aware is unchanging awareness. You are that. There is nothing else to Realize.

What is eternal is not known and therefore recognized only because of ignorance, not knowing how close to oneself the Reality truly is
To recognize this changeless presence of awareness or one's unchanging true nature, all that anyone has to do is to be still. Just pause thoughts.
What remains present if you pause thought? Awareness alone remains present as one's true nature, as pure changeless being.

Just like when clouds are gone, only the unchanging Sky remains present.
Just be still and you are there! That is all. You remain undeniably present as pure awareness itself.
What can be any easier than that? That presence of awareness alone is the Self and unchanging Reality that is Sought-after.

To discover the Self, Reality and Freedom people are told by self-appointed Gurus to do this and that, to go beyond a so called 'mind'.
When in fact if you simply pause thoughts, the so called 'mind' disappears and only pure awareness of being remains self-revealed
as one's eternal true nature.

Never far away. Awareness is nothing new to anyone, nothing special or spiritual, but that which always is.
Paradoxically awareness is very familiar and very subtle, therefore simply overlooked until pointed to
and recognized to simply be one's unchanging thoughtless true nature.

Unchanging like the Sky. Awareness doesn't come or go anywhere like thoughts do.
Be still and awareness is revealed present when they are no thought present as 'I' am, as one's very own self and being.
No one can deny one's own self. That is what the sought-after Reality or the Self truly is, pure awareness of being. 'I' am is always with you.

Look at your own self. Look at your own being. Awareness is present here and now.
You don't need to kick start awareness or cultivate awareness, you are aware anyhow right now.
You know that you are. Awareness is present as that very knowing that you are. As pure awareness of being. As 'I' am.
To be aware is this awareness. Realize that separation from the Self doesn't exist. Simply being aware of being oneself is being the Self.

So if you ever wondered what is the Self, He, the Reality the wise have been talking about. That is it.
The Self is nothing other than unchanging awareness. To simply be aware is this undeniable presence of awareness itself.
Awareness is already present here and now, aren't you aware? You are not unconscious but present and therefore aware of being.

That is how to discover the Self. Undeniably present here and now as pure awareness of being, no effort is required at all.
Just be still, pause thoughts and voila! The Self, He, the Reality is self-revealed when they are no thoughts present as pure awareness of being.
That is all that needs to be recognized for Freedom, to realize that you yourself are that undeniable presence of unchanging awareness itself.

Awareness is no-thing and cannot be grasped or denied, it just is.
Awareness is undeniably present and unchanging as one's own self and being, as 'I' am, as the undeniable knowing that you are.
Just be still, that undeniable knowing-ness or pure awareness of being that remains present when they are no thoughts
is one's thoughtless true nature, pure changeless awareness of being known to all as 'I' am.

That is what 'I' or 'I' am truly represents. Pure awareness of being. Who is not aware of being?
The Self or one's thoughtless true nature is at once this unchanging presence of awareness and the knowing that you are.
Who is not aware of himself? Each one knows that they are present and therefore aware of being and yet they do not know the Self.
Again be still and awareness alone remains self-revealed as one's true nature, so simple. Pause thoughts and know that you are that 'I' am.

This undeniable subtle unchanging presence of awareness or awareness of being present as oneself, also called present-awareness or 'I' am-ness.
So simple, so common and so ordinary to everybody alive. Nothing new, special or spiritual, just pure changeless awareness of being.

Undeniably present here and now as one's own self and being,
paradoxically closer than close to oneself, to look for awareness is to always look away from it.
To Seek it, is to turn away from it even more. For the Seeker is the Sought. The Self is awareness and awareness is 'I' am.

Who is not aware of himself? Stop Seeking and you have found it as pure awareness of being, as that 'I' am you know so well.
Know the simple Truth that 'I' is not different from the 'Lord' but in fact that 'I' and awareness are One.
You are the Self and yet you want to know the Self, look at your own self and being, that is it.
Awareness of being is bliss.

The Self will never be what the spiritual Seeker expect it to be.
Nothing special or spiritual whatsoever. Not a blazing light or a spiritual experience.
To simply be aware is to be the Self that is Sought-after, that is the funny paradox. That is the experience, aware-ness.
The Self is simply plain common ordinary everyday awareness and awareness is what you undeniably are right here and now.

Aren't aware? Realize that you are and remain aware. That is it! That is the Self and awareness you read about in holy books
Nothing new or special to be freshly acquired but paradoxically present closer to oneself than one can ever imagine. To be aware is to be the Self.
Plain, common, ordinary everyday awareness is the Self and one's true nature.

Freedom from all bondage is paradoxically so simple and so easy. It is simply being oneself naturally.
Yet only a rare few have been open to this simplicity and have seen through the 'veil' of ignorance and illusion of separation.
A strange paradox when in fact everybody is always the Self and therefore Freedom itself, but most people are strongly attached to ignorance,

to a false notion of being bound, separation and duality and will refuse to accept it, paradoxically simply because Reality is nothing new or special.
Always present and therefore unchanging, Reality is simply what they have always been and are. Like a dream, duality never existed.

There is no bondage and there is no liberation. Unless you understand what this consciousness or present-awareness is,
you will falsely believe yourself to be a separated entity that is apart from the Infinite Self, when in fact you are and always been the Infinite Self.
The false notion of separation and duality is the only illusion of bondage that needs to be removed with investigation and understanding.
You must understand what is the Self. Not something new or special to be fleshly acquired through time and effort,
but simple changeless awareness of being. Present here and now. Awareness is knowing that you are.

That is the Secret to Freedom. Understanding is all. Nothing else is required.
There is no reaching or becoming the Self. Only ignorance is to be removed. Wisdom is Freedom.
Just this and nothing else. Ignorance is the only obstacle to get rid off for Freedom.
Know yourself and if you know yourself you know the Oneness.
Be still and know that 'I' am is that Oneness.

Everybody is always the Self. They simply don't realize it.
Again Freedom is not hard or difficult. Nothing new, special or spiritual is to be freshly acquired. 
All that is required only, is to simply remove ignorance by understanding what is being pointed to as the Reality.
Never far away or apart from oneself, but in fact closer than close. It is pure awareness of being present as oneself itself, it is 'I' am.

Ultimate Truth is so simple and yet paradoxically the spiritual Seeker doesn't want Freedom to be that simple.
Attached to acquired ignorance. Many want to see the Self as something new, as something special and spiritual, as a blazing light.
The ignorant will not even want to investigate if ultimate Truth could truly be that simple. To them it would be laughable, a cosmic joke.
And yet what if it was? Only a rare wise few will resonate with this simplicity, taking a closer look to see for themselves if it is who they truly are.

Freedom is not acquired by practicing, repeating mantras, doing this and doing that and waiting for it, who waits dies.
But by investigating what is real and discovering through investigation what is already present and unchanging with oneself.
Freedom is to get to know the Truth about oneself, to remove the 'veil' of ignorance through self inquiry.
Investigating who am 'I'?

The attribute to Truth is that it remains the same, never changing. There is only One Truth!
Therefore is you meet self-appointed Gurus that contradict themselves and one day tell you Truth is this and the next day tell you Truth is that.

Then be wise and realize the Truth, that it is not Truth that they are talking about,

but in fact these self-appointed Gurus will confuse you with changing lies and ignorance camouflaged as Truth.
That is how you catch a lie and see the false as false, these Gurus stories, their teachings and message of Freedom keeps on changing.

This message of non-duality and Freedom is always very simple, direct and timeless, Truth always is. You already are the Self and Free.
You are the Oneness already. Here and now you are already that. There is no bondage and therefore no liberation.
Truth is always consistent, it never changes but remains the exact same. Timeless and changeless.
Only lies and the false changes. Truth and Reality never changes.

What is your true nature? Look at yourself and realize that awareness is undeniably present and unchanging, it is pure changeless being.
That is what is Real, one's unchanging true nature. That is what always is and remains present and consistent with oneself.

To know the Truth is Wisdom and Wisdom is Freedom.
Know the Truth sets you Free from the illusion of separation and bondage. To know the Truth is to remove ignorance.
Know the simple Truth! You are not silence. You are not space. You are awareness. Awareness is pure changeless being. It is 'I' am.

Awareness is another name for your unchanging true nature, you are aware and therefore awareness is not to be freshly acquired or cultivated.
Look at your own self, to simply be aware of oneself is this unchanging presence of awareness. Awareness is being-ness or 'I' am-ness.
Awareness of being is the Reality. It is present here and now, it is 'I' am. Why should one Seek it?
Awareness is undeniably present. Look at yourself. You know that you are and you like it.

Freedom is not the acquisition of anything new, spiritual or a new faculty, it never was. Some self-appointed Gurus only pretend it to be.
Many self-appointed Gurus will keep Seekers on the path, keeping their disciples in the dark for self-gratification and money.

As the old saying goes nothing new is acquired; before Freedom chop wood and carry water, after Freedom same same, chop wood and carry water.
Realize that for Freedom you gain absolutely nothing new, because nothing was ever lost. Only the 'veil' of ignorance is removed, that is all it is.
Only the false notion of being separated from consciousness is removed through inquiry and understanding, then the search for Freedom is over.

You can only buy ignorance, worship ignorance, practice ignorance, experience ignorance and foolishly believe ignorance or the false to be true.
Imagine how much money you may have spent buying spiritual and religious books, CD's, pictures, visiting holy Gurus.
Going to spiritual ashrams and holy places, when all along the Reality has absolutely nothing to do with any of this.

These are nothing but spiritual and religious carrots,
that are only used to entice the ignorant and only point away from the Reality, not to it.
Like a used car salesman, you may even find someone to sell you silence in the name of Freedom.

Know the Truth, silence is for the dead. Remove ignorance. Wisdom is Freedom, just this and nothing else! Not silence.
Silence is ignorance and ignorance alone is bondage. Get rid of ignorance. Ignorance is the only obstacle to Freedom.
See the fasle as false. Remove ignorance and you have done all that needed to be done for Freedom.

For example many people go see self-appointed Gurus and spiritual Teachers from East and West that look holy.
Appearing as special beings. Many of these people have changed their given name and acquired new religious and spiritual names.

Staring in people eyes, pretending to be transmitting illusory Grace and Shakti, they will tell their disciples that they are "That".

Obviously the ignorant Seeker has no clue what "That" is, if they knew they would be laughing at the joke of it all
and therefore because of ignorance they will falsely believe that these people have acquired something new,
something different or special and most of all something spiritual, that they don't have already called Freedom.

Believing that these people must be very special beings that have reached or attained the Self, Liberation and Freedom.
The most ignorant or 'veiled' Seekers will even worship them as God's among men and prostrate themselves to their feet.

As the plain good ol' trick of reverse psychology.
Believing the false to be true, just like an Ass the ignorant will chase after spiritual and religious carrots.
'Veiled' by ignorance only or the false notion of being bound, the ignorant Seeker will desperately be
searching to acquire for himself, what he only strongly believes he doesn't already have. Freedom.

Wanting to acquire what these Great Sages, Jnanis, Enlightened beings and Gurus call the Self, He, Reality and Freedom!
Without having any clue to what they are Seeking. Whatever it may be, they also want it for themselves and strongly wish to get 'That'.
Believing and putting their faith blindly without understanding and questioning these self-appointed spiritual Gurus, Masters and Teachers.

In trying to acquire "That" as something new, special, spiritual or holy.
The Search for wholeness and Freedom becomes a blind spiritual trap of ignorance!
The Seeker will spend year after year or an entire lifetime Searching for it and paradoxically always looking away from it.

Paradoxically the Self and Freedom is not to be reached or freshly acquired.
Only ignorance is to be remove. That is all.

Why not understand and remove the 'veil' of ignorance about what is that mysterious Oneness, God, Self, He or That,
that these mystical spiritual Gurus, Sages, Teachers and Jnanis are religiously referring to, as the Infinite Self.

Many people have heard the words "you are that".
Yet the word is not the thing, they don't question to know what is the word "that" truly represents, what is it?

Therefore they have no clue and remain ignorant of what is being point to as one's true nature and Reality.

Ultimate Truth is so simple, just take a look at yourself. Are you conscious? Are you aware of being present here and now?
Then this present-awareness is 'that', this undeniable presence of consciousness is the Self and one's true nature.

Consciousness is simply pure awareness of being, this undeniable present-awareness is known to all as 'I' am.

To simply be conscious is consciousness or the Self. Pure awareness of being.
There is nothing new, special, spiritual about being conscious. Simple changeless being is one's true nature
Who is not aware of himself? Here and now you are consciousness. To be aware of oneself is that.
Awareness of being or 'I' am is that.

You will laugh at yourself for trying to discover the Self, simply because being oneself is always being IT.
Nothing was ever lost and therefore nothing new is to be freshly acquired. Only ignorance about one's true identity is removed for Freedom.
'Veiled' by ignorance people Seek the Self or the Reality far and away, while the experience is here and now.
No one can deny being. Awareness of being oneself is 'I' am. 'I' am is the Reality.

If you are alive and aware of being present as yourself right now, then 'I' am is certain and needs no proof.
Consciousness is present as Life or existence itself, undeniably present as pure awareness of being.

One's own undeniable existence is pure being, existence is the Self or consciousness.

A strange paradox. People are only miserable because they are trying to be happy.
Going from place to place. While True happiness is no-thing, it is pure being.

The True Beloved is consciousness and consciousness is being. Who doesn't love to be?
Existence is the same as happiness and happiness is the same as being.

Because of ignorance people Seek happiness in the wrong places. The Search for happiness is the Trap.
Not to be found outside oneself as a person, place or thing. True happiness is 'I' am. Awareness of being is bliss.
Happiness is to simply be content with what you are sure of and that is the fact of your own being.

Even though people will squeeze you for money to sell you happiness and Freedom. Nothing is to be freshly acquired for consciousness to be.
The Self is nothing new, nothing special, nothing spiritual or religious. Consciousness is simply Life itself, that is all.
People have only used religious and spiritual concepts to sell Freedom from bondage,
which is in fact to sell water by the water to the ignorant.

All you have to do to remove the 'veil' of ignorance is to understand, understanding is Wisdom and Freedom.
Of course self-appointed Gurus don't want you to know the real Truth, so they will tell people to be silent, to keep quiet.
For if the real Truth is revealed, their cover of keeping people bound to ignorance for gratification and money is blown.

After all one only 'believes' that there is bondage. The false 'belief' or false notion of being bound is itself the cause of all mischief.
That false 'belief' or false notion of being bound is cultivated and perpetuated with spiritual and religious concepts about Freedom.
The Seeker will spend year after year programmed or conditioned to falsely believe oneself to be bound, desperately Seeking liberation
when in fact there is no bondage other than the false believe or false notion of being bound.

Question your beliefs and beware of spiritual and religious Gurus and Teachers, they will fool you.

Remove the 'veil' of ignorance if you want to know Freedom. If there is a will, there is a way.
Freedom is always present closer to you, than you can ever imagine.

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

All I point to here, is that everybody is already the Infinite Self and are already Free. They simply don't know it.
Am I right or am I wrong? Investigate for yourself and find out what is the Truth about you! Wisdom is Freedom.
Know yourself. Look at your own self and see if you truly are what you believe yourself to be.
After all, if you believe yourself to be bound, take a look and find out what binds you?

The ignorant will discard the investigation.
But there is always a rare few that will question their beliefs and investigate what is Real.
Moved with the strong desire to question one's own existence and find out who am 'I' really?
What is my real nature?

Why postpone? There is no waiting for Freedom. Nothing is to be practiced and no effort is required.
Only understanding is the tool required to remove the 'veil' of ignorance covering up the simple Truth about oneself.
The one who earnestly desires to know one's true nature, will undeniably know the Infinite eternal Self.
Paradoxically, only by seeing the false as false that the simple Truth is self-revealed.
Wisdom is to know the Truth about one's own self. Wisdom is Freedom.

What is the Self? What is sought-after as the eternal Self is consciousness.
Consciousness is undeniably present in all, as pure being, as pure existence, as Life itself.

There is no becoming, there is no attaining or reaching anything new or different whatsoever for Freedom.
Just knowing, know the simple Truth and that alone sets you Free from the illusion of bondage and separation.

Just like space is everywhere present and always unchanging. Undeniably present and yet so plain, so common, changeless and ordinary.
In fact there is nothing special about it, it cannot be grasped or denied. It just is.
It is no-thing special to sing or write about.

Just like the space that is always present in front of you is very subtle and easily overlooked.
The Self is nothing new to anybody, but in fact that which always is present and unchanging with oneself and therefore easily overlooked,
until this undeniable presence of consciousness is pointed to and re-cognized as one's unchanging true nature.

That is the funny paradox about the Self and Freedom. The Self or consciousness is not something new.
Not something either special or extra-ordinary to be freshly acquired. But paradoxically the most common, most obvious
and most ordinary undeniable presence always present with oneself. Indivisible, inseparable from oneself not even for an instant.
Remove the 'veil' of ignorance. There is no separation. The Self or consciousness is fact nothing other than one's very own familiar self.

Just like someone who got hit on the head forgot himself for awhile. Remember who 'you' truly are.
Reality is simply the plain ordinary everyday presence of consciousness that is known to all as pure awareness of being.
Who is not aware of himself? Each one knows that they are and yet doesn't know the Self. It is that 'I' am everybody knows so well.

To simply be conscious is this unchanging presence itself and therefore constant awareness of being present or present-awareness,
'I' am-ness, being-ness is that is conscious-ness. The state called 'Realization' is simply being oneself naturally.

Some people want to see the Self as something new or special, but it is not something new to be experienced.

The realization is to understand that what is being pointed throughout the ages as the Self or Reality is simply this undeniable
presence of consciousness or 'I' am-ness that everybody knows so well as Life itself, that realization alone is Freedom.

Once you realize that 'I' am and the Self are One. That is the final realization and the end of the Search.
This presence of consciousness is the real presence of existence some call the Self, He or the Reality.

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

Where the ignorant Seeks the Self as something new, special, spiritual or extra-ordinary.
The wise finds the Self ever-present naturally and unchanging as the most common, mundane and ordinary.
Not as anything new, special or spiritual whatsoever, but as plain, common and ordinary existence itself.

Not knowing how close, how familiar and ordinary the Truth is, ignorant people Seek it far away as something new.
When all along the Reality they are Seeking to find is naturally and undeniably ever-present within their own dwelling.

Consciousness is indeed already present with oneself and not to be freshly acquired. Reality is at once being and consciousness.
Who is not aware of himself? Who is not aware of being? You must be conscious first in order to know that you are.
Therefore to simply be conscious is at once this presence of consciousness itself and awareness of being.

The Self is existence and existence is being. It is pure awareness of being. It is that 'I' am everybody knows.
Look and see! To be or not to be? Aren't you aware of being present here and now? That present-awareness is the Self.

To simply be conscious is consciousness. Why should one seek it?
When it is undeniably present closer than close to oneself, as one's own self and being.
You know that you are and you like it. Simply look at your own self and you have find it. It is 'I' am.

Some people like to play the holy Guru or spiritual Teacher and therefore will create all sorts of religious myths to entice the ignorant Seeker.
Using spiritual carrots for self-improvement, they will sell water by the river to the ignorant who doesn't know himself and understand.
Camouflaging the simple Truth about Freedom and Reality by pretending it to be something new, special and spiritual. But it is NOT!

The Self that is sought-after is simply one's own self and being here and now. It is that 'I' or 'I' am everybody knows. No duality.
Know the Truth, That 'I' is not different from the Self or the Reality but One and the same presence of existence.

Remove all camouflage, get rid of ignorance by seeing the false as false.

There is no personal self or 'ego'. There never were two selves. 'I' is not a finite self but in fact the Infinite Self.
There is nothing to overcome and nothing new to be reached. You are the Self already, you are already that.

One only believes that there is separation and bondage when in fact there is only Oneness and Freedom.
Understand that to be conscious is pure awareness of being and that is the Self.
Pure changeless being is one's true nature.

There is nothing new to get for Freedom. A true Guru cannot give you anything new which you don't already have.
Just like a finger pointing to the moon, he will only point you to take a look at your own self, to look at your own being for Freedom.
For you to understand or realize that you already the are Self here and now and that you have always been Free, you simply didn't know it.

Reality is never far away but paradoxically undeniably present closer than close to oneself, it is oneself.

People only cry over nothing. Like the Fish in the water is crying that he is thirsty. Everybody is already the Self and Free.
Ignorance is the only obstacle to Freedom. Not knowing that the Self is truly oneself, is the only bondage.

Where the ignorant believes there is so called 'mind' and 'ego' present.
The wise has seen the false as false and through the illusion of duality. That 'mind' and 'ego' do not exist.
All there is Omni-present with oneself as oneself is solely consciousness and therefore Oneness. Just this and nothing else.

If you truly desire in your heart to know your true nature. Remove ignorance with understanding only.
Understanding is the best medicine to remove the false notion of being anything other than consciousness itself.
After all, if you don't understand what this consciousness truly is, then you are seemingly in bondage to ignorance.

When you remove ignorance by investigating and understanding what this consciousness simply is,
the 'veil' of ignorance covering up the simple Truth about one's own self drops off and that is called liberation.
Paradoxically you realize that you were never bound or have ever been anything other than consciousness
and you have a good laugh at yourself.

Just like with water and ice. There is no ice without water.
One's own existence is the Divine. You are because consciousness is.
'I' and consciousness are One and the same presence of existence. It is 'I' am.

People Seeking the Self have no clue that Reality is not something new, spiritual or religious at all.
Paradoxically spiritual and religious concepts only point away from the Self.
These acquired concepts cannot help you for Freedom.

The Self is so common to everyone and so familiar, it is the unseen presence of existence itself beating one's heart.
The Self, He or the Reality is simply Life itself. Everybody alive is only alive because consciousness is present.
It is the core of one's being. Everybody aware is only aware simply because consciousness is present,
it is the presence of awareness itself.

Consciousness is the natural unseen presence of intelligence, the living power and awareness in the body
and therefore the living presence effortlessly shining through your eyes right now.
Seeing is itself being the Self. Consciousness is the Seer present.

To be or not to be?
No one can deny being. Consciousness is present as pure awareness of being.
No one can deny one's own existence even though one cannot see it.
It is impossible to say 'I'  don't exist! Awareness of being is bliss.

Who is not aware of himself? Consciousness is indeed undeniably present with everybody.
No one can negate his own self and say 'I' am not.

Consciousness present is undeniably known to all,
as awareness of being present or present-awareness, as 'I' am.
'I' am is the goal and final Reality.

Know the simple Truth!
Freedom is not the acquisition of anything new nor is it a new faculty.
No special powers or transmissions of this and that. These are only spiritual concepts to entice the ignorant.

Only the Self-appointed Guru that wants to freshly acquire something for himself, usually money and gratification
will camouflage the simple Truth to be something new, special, spiritual or extra-ordinary.

Freedom is only the removal of all camouflage.
That is all.

Here is a common acquired concept about Reality which is in fact nothing but ignorance.
Some people have been brainwashed in believing that the Self is silence.

Here is the 'trick' to remove that ignorance.
The Self is the unchanging presence of awareness or the undeniable knowing presence which is undeniably present, to be aware of silence.
'Who' is present first and foremost to be aware of silence? Awareness of course must be present first.
Realize that the 'knower' itself which is simply awareness itself is the Self.
Consciousness or awareness is always present and primary.

Consciousness is not a changing state that comes and goes like silence or sound,
but always remains unchanging or stateless as the substratum, as pure awareness, as pure changeless being.

Just like with a movie screen or a mirror. Awareness or the Self is not whatever appears on it,
but what is undeniably present to be aware of it. Just like looking at oneself in a mirror,
awareness is not what is seen, but the Seer.

The funny thing is that some people will pay others to sell them silence.
Some will even package it into spiritual retreats. That is a very strange paradox.

What does silence got to do with Reality? Nothing whatsoever.
Reality is consciousness, awareness, being. Not silence.

Obviously if someone is given the wrong address,
they can search and strive for many years, they will never find the destination.
All along looking away from the Reality, simply because they were pointed to look in the wrong direction.
What a pity.

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

No one outside yourself can give you the Self.
All that someone can do for you, is simply help you remove ignorance
helping you understand by pointing directly to consciousness that you are already that.

Just like a cloud covering up the ever-present self-shining Sun of awareness. Get rid of ignorance and all will be well.
Ignorance is the only obstacle to Freedom, nothing else needs to be removed with understanding.

Ultimate Truth is so simple.
After all, aren't you aware right now anyhow? Awareness is nothing other than simply being aware, that is all.
Realize that you are and remain aware, that unchanging awareness is the Self. You are that. Awareness is just another name for 'you'.

You could ask, why do some people disguised themselves as holy being giving Satsang, if ultimate Truth is so simple?
Simply because the ignorant wants to see the Self as something new, something spiritual, as a blazing light.
So you will always have people taking advantage of people's ignorance and put on a spiritual show
by pretending to have become or reached and experienced the Self and acquired freedom.

The Self is not something new or special or spiritual to be acquired from others, but to re-cognize always present in you, as your own being.
It is all a funny paradox, you being the Self already want to know the Self. You cannot become what you already are.
It is impossible to become anything new, anything different than simply being yourself.
Understanding is all. Look at yourself.

It is all a paradox! The Self is not experienced as something new but the experiencer. Not what can be seen as something new but the Seer.
Not what is known but the knower. Not to be discovered as something new but the Seeker. Not what is heard but the hearer.
The Self is simply your own self. You yourself are already the Self, how can you kiss yourself?

You are undeniably aware anyhow, you need not try to be.
Awareness is present because you are present. You know that you are, therefore awareness is undeniably present.
To simply be aware is awareness and that is the Self. The Self is pure awareness of being or knowing that you are.

Not knowing how close Reality is, people Seek it far away. Know yourself and end the Search for yourself!
You are awareness already and therefore cannot become what you already are.

Get to know your unchanging thoughtless true nature, not as something new or special, but paradoxically to be
this undeniable familiar unchanging presence of awareness that you already know so well as yourself. As your own being-ness.
For example if you pause thoughts, just be still for a few moments and notice what remains present without thoughts?
Isn't there undeniably an unchanging awareness of being present? You know that you are, 'I' am is certain?


That is is IT, you are that. Awareness of being present or present-awareness is the Self and one's true nature.
Why should one Seek it! You are already aware of being present here and now. Awareness of being is 'I' am.
Therefore there is no need to try to reached or cultivate awareness.

No effort is required to know the Self, He, the Reality or one's unchanging true nature.
Simply discern between transient thoughts and unchanging awareness, just be still and voila!

Awareness is and alone remains effortlessly present when they are no thoughts. So simple.
That unchanging presence of awareness which is undeniably present as pure changeless being is itself the Self.
So common and therefore so subtle. You are that unchanging awareness itself, it is your true nature.

Take a look and see, it is so simple and so easy to re-cognize one's thoughtless true nature. Just be still.
Only what comes and goes or the impermanent disappear and Reality remains present and self-revealed as one's own self and being.

You are the Self, you are that undeniable presence of unchanging awareness.
Realize that you are and remain aware regardless of thoughts or no thoughts present.
That which always is present and unchanging, is called Reality.

You are that unchanging presence of awareness itself.
Only thoughts disappear but 'you' don't go anywhere, because 'you' yourself are not a thought.
You are always present as unchanging awareness. There is no other presence of real existence or Reality
but this undeniable presence of awareness that is known to all as 'I' or 'I' am.

Just like clouds always come and go on the unchanging Sky. Thoughts only appear on 'you'.
Thoughts always come and go but you are always present before, during and after thoughts disappear, you are present as awareness.
You don't come and go anywhere, you don't disappear or stop being aware if you pause thoughts, you don't stop seeing, hearing, smelling
simply because you yourself are that unchanging presence of awareness which is present and aware of all natural activities.

It all works in reverse, all a strange paradox.
The Self is not lost or far away from oneself but paradoxically always undeniably present as one's own self and being.
People only falsely believe that the Self is something new, something special or spiritual but it is not. It is simple changeless being.

You gain absolutely nothing new or special, only ignorance is removed about one's true nature. That is all Freedom is about, remove ignorance.
There is no becoming anything new whatsoever, but only understanding that the Self, is simply what you have always been and are.
There is no reaching the Self, because you already are the Self itself, this very moment.

Ignorance is just like a clothe that is used as a 'veil' to cover up a bright and shining light.
The light is already present and shining. Only remove the 'veil' so that you can see.

Only remove anything that makes you believe that 'you' yourself here and now, are not present as the Self already.
When in fact here and now 'you' yourself being as you are, are already that. Awareness of being present as yourself is the Self.

How can you become what you already are? Reality is not to be freshly acquired, it is already here! It is pure awareness of being.
The Search itself is a 'catch twenty two' so to speak and that itself is the trap. You already are right now what you Seek to find, it is yourself.

The Seeker is the Sought, that is all. Call off the Search.
That is the Secret to Freedom, you are already this Oneness. The One without two is 'you'.
Know the Truth about your very own self and being and ignorance vanishes.

The Self is not something new to be freshly acquired, but simply what you already are right now and have always been.
There is nothing new to become, nothing to attain or to be reached, just to realize that you yourself already the Self you Seek to find.
The Self you Seek to know is truly yourself. You are already that.

What is the timeless message of non-duality?
To know thyself! Who am 'I'? Get to know your own self first and foremost and when you know yourself to be awareness
then you also know the Kingdom of God. Which is nothing but pure existence, consciousness or the Spirit of Life itself.

If you want to know the Self, He, the eternal or Reality. Don't look far or away or you will miss it.
Instead turn toward yourself, toward 'I' am. Look at your own self here and now, look at your own being
and you have found it.

He, the Self, Reality is plain ordinary everyday existence.
How far is one's own undeniable existence here and now from oneself?
Who is not aware of being? Closer than close of course! Everybody knows 'I' am.

Freedom is not the acquisition of anything new, special or anything different than what you have always been and are.
Like hiding the Sought-after 'Precious Jewel' closer than close to oneself, you yourself are already here and now what you Seek to find.
One's very own undeniable existence is itself the Divine. No one can deny being. Each one knows that they are.

'I' am is certain and that undeniable awareness of being present as oneself needs no proof.

Everybody knows that they are and they like it. No one can deny one's own existence even though one cannot see it.

No one in no circumstance can negate his own self and being.
Existence is consciousness and this presence of consciousness is known to all as 'I' am.
It cannot be grasped or negated because consciousness is no-thing, it is pure awareness of being.
You can only know present-awareness as your very own self and being, as simply being yourself, as that 'I' or 'I' am.

Call off the Search! The experience is here and now. Look at your own self. Look at your own being.
Why should one Seek it? Existence is consciousness and consciousness is awareness of being.
After all, aren't you present and therefore already undeniably aware of being?
You know that you are. The Reality is 'I' am. Awareness of being is bliss.

The one who Seeks to reach the Self is already the Self.
Like a Fish always in the Ocean searching everywhere for the Ocean.


Because of ignorance some people worship others believing they have something that they don't have.
Paradoxically these people believe the false to be true and reject the simple Truth to be false. Ignorance will do that to people.
They simply don't know themselves. Ignorance is like a 'veil' that blinds people from realizing the simple Truth of who they truly are.

Ever wonder why people go from Guru to Guru and yet they get nowhere? Like selling water by the River. Ask yourself this question.
Why should you pay some else outside yourself to sell you Freedom, when it is what you have always been and are?

The True Guru wants nothing from others simply because he knows you need nothing from him also.
Freedom is a Gift from the Heart of consciousness that is only shared From Heart to Heart.
No amount of money can buy Freedom, paradoxically only ignorance can be acquired.

If you want to know Freedom, simply get to know your real nature. That is all.
Not by Seeking it far away or waiting to find it tomorrow if you are lucky.
But by simply investigating yourself, find out who am 'I'?

One Seeks Freedom, only because one believes himself to be bound.
Like a Fish always in the Ocean Seeking frantically everywhere for the Ocean.

Look at yourself. Look at your own being. Who is not aware of himself?
Are you conscious? Are you aware of being present as yourself here and now?

Voila! awareness of being is the Self, the undeniable presence of consciousness which is known to all as 'I' am.
Present-Awareness. Awareness of being present as one's own familiar self is the sought-after Reality.


The Self is not reached. You are the Self, you are already that consciousness.
Consciousness is indeed present! 'I' am or 'I' am not? Which one are you absolutely certain of?
'I' am of course, no one can deny one's own self and being. That 'I' am-ness is the consciousness that is called the Self.
That is one's thoughtless unchanging true nature and Reality
.

Consciousness is not to be freshly acquired.
To simply be conscious effortlessly is to be IT! You can only laugh at the joke of it all.
Some call this funny paradox 'Enlightenment', just a joke that consciousness plays on itself.
The Seeker is along the Sought. How can you catch, grasp or kiss yourself?
'I' am that 'I' am is the final real-'I'-zation.
Gee! yoU aRe yoU.

There is no bondage and there is no liberation. Understanding is all.
Only the ignorant, the fool and the worshipper of illusion doesn't want ultimate Truth to be so simple.

The wise will only say what I am saying now.
Call off the Search! You are already there. The Search is itself the trap.

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

Freedom is already here! No one becomes Free, no one becomes the Self or the Reality.
Only the removal of ignorance is Freedom, just this and nothing else.

The one who Seeks Freedom is already Free. The one who Seeks the Self is already the Self.
The one who believes is bound is in fact already liberated. All a strange paradox due to ignorance only.


Because of ignorance or not knowing how close the sought-after Reality always is to oneself,
people Seek it far and away as something new, something special or spiritual that is yet to be freshly acquired.
What a pity!

Know the simple Truth about Freedom!
To be oneself or 'I' is not different from the eternal. 'I' is the 'Lord'. One's own self is the sought-after Reality.
You are already that, already there and already the Reality itself right here and now and ever-Free.

Like a finger pointing to the moon.
What is tirelessly being pointed to as the Reality is simply one's own self and being.
'I' or 'I' am. That alone is consciousness, the Self, He and the Reality.

After all, take a good look at yourself! Who are you really? Are you the changing transient body?
Are you the transient thoughts that always come and go and never remain present?

Awareness is first hand. You must be conscious first and foremost for anything else to be.
How else can you know that you are present if you are unconscious?

Ponder this!

To be conscious is itself pure awareness of being. Present-awareness.
To be conscious is knowing that you are present first and foremost, it is 'I' am.
Therefore you are that presence of consciousness itself, that is one's thoughtless true nature.

Realize that 'I' and consciousness are One. Indivisible, inseparable.
No consciousness present, no awareness of being present as oneself either. No 'I' or 'I' am.
To be aware of oneself is to simply be conscious and that presence of consciousness is itself the Self.

What is permanent or Real is always undeniably present and unchanging with oneself.
What is it? Awareness doesn't come and go anywhere. To simply be conscious or aware is awareness.
Awareness present is 'I' or 'I' am. Simple changeless being is one's thoughtless unchanging true nature.

To be conscious, to be awake or to be aware are all synonymous for being the Self.
Awareness of being present as oneself is one's true nature. It is 'I' am. Knowing that you are.

There is nothing to overcome, nothing to be reached or to be freshly acquired for Reality to be.
Being oneself naturally is the Self. Call off the Search for 'you'. Simply understand what is being pointed to, that is all.

Then you will laugh at yourself, for Seeking and trying to discover the Self, when all along it was your very own self and being.

The Self or Reality is consciousness and consciousness is not something new, spiritual or far away,
but simple changeless awareness of being is one's true nature.

Here and now being yourself is being it. Just this and nothing else. Duality and separation do not exist.
There is nothing but consciousness present as oneself, being oneself is being the Self.

Only the ignorant believes that there is separation and duality.
That there is a so called 'mind' and 'ego' somewhere present to overcome for Freedom, but there isn't.
Take a look and see! Like a mirage of water in the desert. Look for it and they will not be found.
That is the only way to get rid of ignorance, investigate for yourself.

That is the funny paradox.
If the inquiry is made 'who' is bound? The false notion of bondage dissolves and so that of liberation.
Consciousness, is self-revealed as being one's very own self and being. It is 'I' am.

That is the Secret to Freedom, Thou Art That. Just this and nothing else.
Here and now you are that.

The ignorant falsely believes the 'I' is a finite self limited to the body. Because he doesn't know himself.
The wise knows the simple Truth, that 'I' or one's own self and the Infinite Self are One and the same.


All there is, is consciousness.
No duality, no separation. Therefore being oneself naturally is in fact being the Infinite Self.
You already are consciousness this very moment. To simply be conscious is this consciousness or the Self.
Awareness of being present as oneself is consciousness. It is known to all as 'I' am.
You already are the Oneness.

Why not use common sense? After all, understanding is all that is necessary for Freedom.
There is no becoming what you have always been and are. Just remove the false notion of being bound, that is all.
Make no effort! It all works in reverse. Any effort, any meditation or practice you do to become Free is only bondage.
Here and now you are that. There is no bondage. You are already there, you simply don't realize it. Remove ignorance only.

There is absolutely nothing new, there is nothing special or spiritual to find! Only to remove ignorance is Freedom. That is all.
Simply because there is no bondage, there is no separation and there is no liberation.
Everybody is already the Self, the Reality and Free.

After all, for Freedom what do you have to wait for, when the Self is already present here and now?
What is sought-after is simply consciousness, nothing but simple changeless awareness of being.
The Seeker simply doesn't know it. Ignorance is the only bondage.
Understanding is Wisdom and Wisdom is Freedom.

Call off the Search! The Self is not reached. Everybody is already the Self. Seeking it, is always missing it.
Everybody is already so called 'Realized' without ever trying to be, because of ignorance they simply don't realize it.

Ignorance is the only obstacle or 'veil' covering up the simple Truth about Freedom.
Get rid of ignorance and you will realize that you already are eternally Free.

There never was any bondage and there is no separation, one only believes that there is.
People believe the false to be true and the simple Truth to be false. A strange paradox.

Ignorance is the only obstacle to Freedom, nothing else.
Understanding is Wisdom and Freedom. Ignorance is bondage. Pick one!
Understanding is called the bird's way, the fastest way to remove the false notion of being bound.

Ignorance is the only 'veil'. People Seeking Freedom do not know that they are already the Self and Free.
Only because of ignorance that they falsely believe themselves to be bound. Ignorance is the only bondage.
Wisdom is to simply remove the 'veil' of ignorance and false notion of being bound with understanding.

If you want to know Freedom, you must first understand what is simply being pointed to as the Reality.
Understand this consciousness, it is very easy. It is nothing new, nothing spiritual, nothing special or far away

but paradoxically ever-present naturally and closer than close to oneself.

That is the only way to know the Truth about one's unchanging true nature!
Understanding is all. Understanding is the tool to Freedom. The only tool to remove ignorance.
There is no becoming or reaching the Self. You already are this consciousness this very moment.

The one who Seeks consciousness as something new, something special or spiritual will always miss it.
Don't disturb yourself with Seeking, instead get to know the real 'you' that doesn't come and go anywhere, like thoughts do.

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

Know the simple Truth about Freedom!
What 'you' are Seeking as Reality or the Self, here and now 'you' already are that.
Therefore how can you kiss yourself? The Seeker is the Sought. Duality doesn't exist.

Just like the story of the ten foolish men, grieving at the lost or the tenth man that was never lost.
Look at yourself, look at your own being. Who wants to know the Self? 'I' do!

Here is the simple Secret to Freedom. The one who wants to know the Self is the Self.
You will  laugh at yourself for trying to discover the Self. You are the Self. You are the destination you have never left.

Call off the Search, you are already there!
You are the Oneness. Being oneself is effortlessly being the Self.
Like the Fish in the water crying that he is thirsty. Nothing was ever lost!

The Search is itself the trap.
There is no becoming what you already are.
Only understanding and removing ignorance by re-cognizing that one's own self is in fact the Self, is the Real-'I'-zation.
You already are and have always been consciousness, you simply don't realize it. It is that 'I' am you know so well.
Not knowing how close and how familiar consciousness always is to oneself, people Seek it far away.

Only the false notion and feeling 'I' am not Realized is the obstacle to Freedom. In fact 'I' is already Real-'I'-zed.
The Secret is that there is no bondage and there is no liberation. Everybody alive is already Realized and the Self.
To know the Self, don't look far away or try to acquire it from others, simply look at yourself.

Who is not aware of himself?
Consciousness or the Self is pure awareness of being.
The Self is ever-present naturally and effortlessly as one's own self, as one's own being.

Everybody says 'I' and therefore are alive, conscious and aware of being, each one knows that they are.
'I' is the Self or pure awareness of being and that understanding is the only Real-'I'-zation.
That the Self is 'I' am. Thou Art That.

Know the simple Truth!
You gain absolutely nothing new whatsoever for Freedom. Zero!
Only the false notion of being bound and separated from consciousness is removed with understanding.
That is all. Understanding is Freedom, remove ignorance only. Nothing else is necessary.

Understand this awareness it is so easy.
The ignorant Seeker only assume that he is bound and that Freedom is therefore hard and difficult.
But in fact it is not difficult at all, but paradoxically ultimate Truth is so simple.

Remove ignorance about your very own self and being. Know Thyself. Who am 'I' really?

Ignorance is the only obstacle, understanding this awareness is to remove ignorance and Wisdom.
Consciousness is existence and existence is being. Awareness of being is 'I' am.
Why should one Seek one's own self and being?

Consciousness is indeed present as the knowing that you are.
It is pure awareness of being. Everybody knows 'I' am.

Some people Seek consciousness as something new, something spiritual or special to be freshly acquired.
Some want to see consciousness or the Self as a blazing light. But that is only spiritual concepts that are only found in story books,
that is only ignorance and fantasy, not Reality.

Understanding is all that is necessary to remove the 'veil' of ignorance.
You are awareness itself right here and now. You already are what you Seek to find. Nothing was ever lost.
Since you already are awareness anyhow, there is no need to try to reach it or cultivate it.

Call off the Search! After all, how can you possibly become or attain what you have always been and are?
It is impossible! The search is itself the trap.


Freedom is here! There is absolutely nothing new to become.

There is absolutely nothing special to be reached or to be freshly acquired.

There is nothing spiritual to be attained. Just being oneself is being the Self, consciousness and the Reality.
Paradoxically never far away but always present closer than close to oneself. To be aware is awareness.

The Self is simply being oneself. Nothing new at all, in fact the Seeker is the Sought.
Everybody is always the Self. They simply don't know it. 'I' or oneself is already Real-'I'-zed is the realization.

To be or not to be? Awareness is to simply be aware of being present as oneself or 'I' am.
Awareness present is knowing that you are. 'I' am that 'I' am. You are this undeniable awareness of being present or 'I' am.

Existence, Life is consciousness present. That is the unseen Power, the intellignece or Living presence functioning the body naturally.
When consciousness is aware of itself, it is known to all as 'I' am. Pure awareness of being is to simply be aware and to remain aware.
Awareness is unchanging. Who is not aware of himself? Awareness of being present or 'I' am is the goal and final Reality.

Just like space is always undeniably present and easily overlooked.
It is nothing new or special, simply the very first thing that we all see when we open our eyes.
Space is always undeniably present but it is so subtle that it is ignored and easily overlooked, it is no-thing.

Awareness is just the same.
It is always primary and always undeniably present with oneself as oneself, inseparable and indivisible.
Who is not aware of himself? Awareness is undeniably present because you know that you are, you are aware of being.

Consciousness is primary and undeniably present as awareness of being. The presence of awareness is 'I' am.
Everybody knows 'I' am. Awareness is so familiar, so obvious and so common to everybody,
that people simply overlook the most familiar, the most obvious and undeniably present, themselves.

If you want to be Free, only remove the 'veil' of ignorance by getting to know yourself.
Look at yourself, look at your own being. The Self is that 'I' am you know so well.
The Self or consciousness is indeed present. Everybody knows 'I' am.

Present-awareness is knowing that you are.
No one can negate being the Self and say 'I' don't exist.

'I' exist, 'I' am is certain and that pure undeniable awareness of being present, needs no proof.
Who is not aware of being, who is not aware of himself? Each one knows and yet doesn't know the Self.
A strange paradox when this awareness of being present as oneself is the Self or consciousness itself
, known to all as 'I' or 'I' am.

Freedom is to know the simple Truth about your very own self and being, that 'I' and the Self are One, no difference whatsoever.
Only ignorance is to be removed for Freedom. Know thyself or who is 'I' true identity
and you will laugh at yourself for Seeking the Self.

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

Because of ignorance people Seek God, the Self or consciousness far and away.
Remove ignorance and God, the Self or consciousness is revealed to always have been present within your own dwelling.

Know yourself and if you know yourself you know the Kingdom of God, the Self or consciousness.
Who am 'I'? Understanding is all that is required to remove the 'veil' of ignorance.

Just like a cloud covering up the ever-present self-shining Sun, ignorance is the only obstacle to Freedom,
just this and nothing needs to be removed. Remove ignorance only and you have done all that needed to be done.

What is God, the Self or consciousness?
Simple, it is 'I' am.

Not some holy or spiritual or religious 'I' am foolishly believed to be the name of God.
That is only acquired ignorance from religious books and others. Forget all that non-sense.

But simple changeless awareness of being, Life or existence is 'I' am.
God or the Self or consciousness is simply Life itself. Who is not aware of being?
One's very own undeniable existence here and now is the Divine.

Once you understand this consciousness. All religious and spiritual concepts are no longer valid for you.
For they all are mental concepts simply point away from the Reality and this simple Truth, not to it.

Realize that the Reality which always is present with you is consciousness, that is all.
That is the Self or one's true nature that is known to all as 'I' am.

Be still and know that 'I' am that.
The presence of consciousness which is the real existence.

Here and now you are that.
That simple! Call off the Search.

Awareness of being or 'I' am is God, the Self or consciousness.
Look at your own self. Take a look at your own being. You know that you are.
No one can negate being. 'I' am is certain and that awareness of being needs no proof.

'I' am is always with you. Closer than close to oneself. Who is not aware of himself?  
Pure awareness of being or that presence of awareness or 'I' am-ness is this consciousness.

You are already that, the Self, awareness, consciousness are just different names for plain good ol' 'you'.
To understanding this, is to drop the 'veil' of ignorance about one's own self and attachment to the false and Freedom.

You are the Self, you are He, you are already that, simply being yourself naturally.
That is the Secret to non-duality. To simply be conscious is this consciousness itself known to all as 'I' am.

Therefore to look for it, is to always look away from it. To Seek it, is to turn away even more.
Simply because all along the God, the Self or consciousness you Seek to know, is truly yourself.
'I' and the 'Father' or the 'Lord' are One. Nothing new under the Sun. Thou Art That.

Get rid of ignorance. Realize that God is nothing spiritual or special, nothing whatsoever religious.
God is Life itself! That is all it is. So near and so dear! Being alive and conscious is God, that is what 'I' am truly is.

Awareness of being is consciousness. Awareness of being is 'I' am. 'I' and consciousness are One and the same presence.
The state called 'Realization' is simply being oneself. That is all the great Mystery is all about.
Awareness of being is the Self. Who is not aware of himself?

Understanding this consciousness is all that is necessary for Freedom, nothing else.
Know the Truth! There is no becoming, no reaching or achieving anything new whatsoever.

Simply notice what is already effortlessly and naturally ever-present with you,
that doesn't come and go and cannot be denied. That is all.

Here is a hint, look at yourself.
And you will laugh at yourself, for trying to discover the Self.
Awareness of being is 'I' am, the Self and bliss.

Obviously the spiritual and religious worshipper, the believer, the Guru lover.
The Seeker of great spiritual experiences will never know this simple Truth.
Simply because ultimate Truth is so simple.

Never apart at any time or far away, but undeniably present as one's own self and being.
If you want to know God, consciousness or the Self. Look at your own self.
Just be still and know that 'I' am is that.

What can be any easier than that?

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

Ever wonder what is Life truly all about.
Who am 'I'? Why am 'I' here?

If you investigate yourself, you will be surprised to discover that Life is nothing but a long dream of consciousness
and that 'you' yourself simply being just as you are right here and now, are this consciousness itself, never changing.

Understanding this consciousness is Freedom from all bondage.
After all, what you Seek, you already are that! No one can become the Self or consciousness.
Only understand or realize that what is pointed to as the Self, is simply being oneself naturally,
just this and nothing else is the realization some call Freedom. Understanding is all.

If you want to know Freedom. Then realize that the Self is nothing new, nothing special, spiritual or religious whatsoever.
But simple changeless awareness of being. That is all. Common ordinary everyday consciousness. Who is not aware of being?
To simply be aware of oneself or awareness of being is the Self or consciousness or 'I' or 'I' am, nothing else.

All acquired spiritual and religious knowledge is paradoxically the greatest ignorance.
Forget everything and you are there. How much time does it take to know that you are.
'I' am is certain. Awareness of being is always with you.
'I' am is consciousness.

There is no higher or lower consciousness. There is no spiritual or any religious consciousness. There is no higher or lower self.
All there is this Omni-presence, One Life, One existence, One Self present as all selves or One consciousness.
It is beating your heart right here and now and shining through your eyes, just the same as everybody else.

This consciousness is nothing special, spiritual or religious but plain and ordinary consciousness known to all as 'I' am.
Awareness of being is existence and this consciousness or existence is the Self that is sought-after.
Consciousness is existence. Existence is the same as being.
Why should one seek it?

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

Only the ignorant will go from Guru to Guru,
foolishly believing that the Self or Reality is to be freshly acquired or transmitted from others.
But that is laughable ignorance simply because the Self is not something that can ever be acquired from others.

No one can ever transmit or give the Self to another, that is only spiritual carrots to entice the ignorant Seeker.
All that can be done for Freedom is to help remove ignorance by pointing that to simply be oneself is to be the Self.

Know thyself! That is all that is necessary for Freedom, understanding is all.
Remove ignorance by knowing that the Self is already present as your own self, as your very own existence and being.

The Self and absolute Reality is simply 'I' or 'I' am. Be still and know that 'I' am is the Self.
Then you laugh at yourself for trying to discover the Self, all along simply being oneself is being the Self.
Like the Fish in the water is crying that he is thirsty. Everybody is already the Self. The Seeker is in fact the Sought.

Gee! yoU aRe yoU. Only ignorance is removed for Freedom. Nothing else is so called Liberation.
There is no becoming anything new. 'Enlightenment' is not the acquisition of anything new, but simply the removal of ignorance.
To understand or realize that 'I' is the self, is the final Real-'I'-zation. There is nothing more to realize.

Who am 'I'? Know your own self and you will realize that 'I' or simply being oneself is not a finite self 
but in fact that 'I' or one's own familiar ordinary everyday self and being is the Infinite Self or consciousness. Thou Art That.

Never lost or apart for even an instant from oneself. So dear and so near, paradoxically closer than close to oneself.
One's unchanging true nature or the Infinite Self is so plain, so common and so familiar to everyone alive,
that people Seeking the Self don't realize they already are and have always been the Self and Free.

Bondage and separation is like the story of the ten foolish men
that grieved at the lost of the tenth man,
that was never lost.

That is the funny paradox about Freedom.
Simply that there is no bondage but only liberation.
The one who wants to know Self is already on the Self.
Call off the Search.

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

Understanding is all.
Ignorance is the only obstacle to Freedom.
Get rid of ignorance, that is all that is necessary for Freedom.

First understand that Reality is only discovered ever-present with oneself as one's own self.
Not as anything else or anything new but simply as pure changeless being.
One's very own existence is the Divine.

The Self is Life itself or consciousness and that consciousness is simply present here and now as your own being.
'I' and the Self are One, no difference whatsoever.
That is all that needs to be realized.
That 'I' is already realized or consciousness is simply being oneself.
Nothing more than this understanding is the Real-'I'-zation.

'I' is not different from the Self. In other words duality and separation do not exist.
There is no other self present as one's own everyday familiar self, but the Self.
Just this and nothing else is present as oneself.

Not knowing that one's own self is already the Self is the only illusion of separation and duality.

Ignorance is the only cause of all mischief. To understand what is being pointed to as the Self is Freedom.
Realize that the Self is simply common consciousness, that is all. Awareness of being present as oneself is consciousness.

Consciousness is the effortless activity of being aware. Seeing, hearing, knowing is being aware, that is the Self.
Realize that you are aware and remain aware and that unchanging presence of awareness is the Self.

The Self or Consciousness is not silence. Know this simple Truth and Free yourself from ignorance!
Anyone that tries to convince you that the Self or one's unchanging true nature is silence is simply lying to you.

To look for the Self in silence is paradoxically looking away from the Self. No state will ever be the Self.
Consciousness is always primary as pure unchanging awareness and awareness is stateless, it is pure changeless being.

Consciousness, awareness, being is 'I' am.

Consciousness is simply existence or Life itself. Lively and buoyant. Consciousness or the Self is awareness of being.
Consciousness is awareness of being present as oneself. That undeniable knowing that you are is 'I' am.

Alive-ness, living-ness, conscious-ness, being-ness are all synonymous with existence and being.
One's true nature is ever-present as one's own undeniable existence. Existence is being and consciousness.
Pure awareness of being is 'I' am. No one can deny being and say 'I' am not.

Not understanding this consciousness is the only obstacle to Freedom.
Like a Fish always in the Ocean searching for the Ocean. 'I' or 'I' am is the Self or this consciousness itself.
Consciousness is Life itself. Consciousness is existence and existence is being.
Existence or the Self is at once being and consciousness.
Known to all as awareness of being or 'I' or 'I' am.

Never far away. Freedom is always present right here.
The Self or consciousness is undeniably present right here and now with you,
as your very own self. After all, you are the Self already and yet you want to know the Self.

Simply take a good look at your own self and being. Are you conscious?
You know that you are? You are undeniably aware of being present as yourself right now.
'I' am is certain and needs no proof? Voila! That is the Self.

Awareness of being present as oneself or 'I' am is bliss and the Self.
That is all it is. Pure awareness of being is existence, consciousness and the Self. Get to know your own self and you know the Self. 
Simply because here and now you are that. Same, same. No separation, no duality.
You are the One. The Self or Consciousness is 'you'.

One only 'believes' that there is separation and duality when in fact there is only Oneness Omni-present, the Self is 'I' or oneself. 
You are that consciousness you already know so well as 'I' am. That is all. The self is simply awareness of being oneself.
Didn't anyone tell you? That is the Secret, you are He, you are That, you are the Self already.

Just like the mirage of a blue sky or water in the desert. There never was any separation or duality.
One's own self and being is always the Oneness. To be yourself without doing anything whatsoever is always being the Self.

The Self is consciousness and consciousness present is unchanging awareness of being or 'I' am-ness.
The Self is not reached. There is no becoming anything new, special or different. Just being yourself naturally is being it.
All that is required for Freedom from all bondage is to simply remove the false notion of being bound.

Closer than close to oneself.
The Self that is Sought-after is paradoxically one's own self and being.
That is the funny paradox. The Seeker is the Sought. The Self you Seek to know is truly your own self.
The Search for something new, different or special to be freshly acquired for Freedom is the Trap itself.
How can 'you' kiss yourself? Remove ignorance only, nothing else is required for Freedom.

Again Reality or the Self is not silence. It is no space. It is not sound. Ask yourself, 'I' am or 'I' am not?
The Self is simply one's own undeniable existence here and now, the Self is known to all as pure awareness of being.
That undeniable knowing that you are present here and now or present-awareness is 'I' am.
The Self, consciousness and Reality is that 'I' am you know so well.

To be or not to be?
Who is not aware of himself? Everybody knows that they are.
'I' am is certain and needs no proof.

Understand this consciousness. To be aware of being present as oneself effortlessly or simply just knowing that you are
is only when you are conscious and that awareness of being present or 'I' am-ness is the Self or the consciousness that is Sought-after.

Plain ordinary everyday awareness of being is wakefulness and that is one's subtle true nature,
which simply is the natural effortless activity of being conscious, cognizant and therefore aware and to remain aware
and this unchanging thoughtless present-awareness is the Reality.

Ultimate Truth is so simple. Again, to simply be aware is awareness, that is all.
It is not to be freshly acquired or cultivated. Just realize that right here and now, you are and remain aware.
You are this unchanging present-awareness itself. Inseparable, indivisible it is pure awareness of being.

Understanding is all that is required to remove the 'veil' of ignorance, nothing else. Remove ignorance only with understanding.
Get rid of ignorance and voila! The false notion of bondage and separation dissolves instantly.

There is no bondage and there is no separation. One only believes that there is, but there isn't! Just the 'belief' that there is.
Everybody is already the Self, they simply don't realize it. The Real-'I'-zation is that to be oneself is being the Self.
Freedom is to know that 'I' is consciousness itself. No duality, no separation but 'I' and the Self are One.

One's own undeniable existence is consciousness.
Never far away or apart at any time but undeniably present closer than close to oneself.
Look at your own self. Look at your own being, because that is IT. Thou Art That. That is all.

Existence is consciousness. Existence is awareness of being.
Existence is the same as happiness and happiness is the same as being.

Reality is only found right here and now, not far away but present as 'you', as your own being, as that 'I' am you know so well.

Understanding is all that is necessary to remove the false notion of being bound.
There is no becoming or reaching the Self or acquiring consciousness because it is already here and now.

To look for it, is only to look away from it.
The Self is 'I' or 'I' am or simply being oneself naturally. One's own self is this consciousness or the Self.
After all, are you conscious? Are you aware? Then consciousness or wakefulness is present, because you know that you are.
Awareness of being present as oneself or 'I' am is consciousness itself.

It doesn't matter how many spiritual Gurus you sat with. How many spiritual or religious books you may have read and have memorized.
How many mantras and bajhans you can repeat or sing. Whatever kind of silent meditation, workshop or yoga you attended.
How many spiritual or holy places you visited. You can pray until you turn blue, none of this stuff can ever help you for Freedom.

In fact acquired spiritual and religious knowledge is only bondage.
Any effort for Freedom is also bondage. Reality is nothing spiritual, nothing religious or special.
Reality has paradoxically nothing to do with any of this.

People will invent all sorts of crazy stuff, all type of spiritual concepts and religious beliefs.
But it is all ignorance. Reality is to simply be alive, that is all. No effort is required to be.
'I' am is the Reality, one's own being is the Self.


Simple changeless awareness of being present as oneself or present-awareness or 'I' am is the Self and the final Reality. That is all.
Who is not aware of himself? Awareness of being is the Self. Nothing else but to be conscious is this consciousness and awareness of being.

Paradoxically, spiritual and religious Gurus and Teachers only point away from this plain and ordinary consciousness. Not to IT!
Rare is the person that wants nothing for himself and knows that you need absolutely nothing at all for Freedom.
And is never tired or reminding you. That you yourself are already the Self you Seek to find.
Remove ignorance only. Know the simple Truth about your own self and being.

Freedom is so easy but most people Seeking Freedom don't want this consciousness to be something simple.
They have been conditioned, programmed or hypnotized to foolishly believe that the Self or consciousness is something new,
something that is special or spiritual that is yet to be acquired, trying to see a blazing light or have a spiritual experience to call Reality.
But consciousness is nothing other than simply being oneself naturally and effortlessly, that is the self-Real-'I'-zation.

One's own familiar everyday self is this presence of consciousness or the Self, but people Seeking the Self do not realize it.
They have no clue that what they Seek to find, is nothing new or far away but paradoxically what they have always been and are.

Consciousness is nothing new at all to anybody alive,
because consciousness present is simply being aware of oneself, consciousness is 'I' am.
Realize that simply being yourself is that. Nothing special or different but paradoxically plain and ordinary.
That 'I' am is that presence of consciousness itself or 'you' are that. Consciousness is the real presence of existence.
Consciousness is known to all as pure awareness of being or simply as 'I' am.


Understanding is all. Remove ignorance about one's undeniable true nature. Consciousness is simply Life or existence itself.
One's very own existence here and now is this undeniable presence of consciousness.
To simply be conscious is to be the Self or consciousness itself. Nothing new or special, just simply overlooked.
That is all what Freedom is truly all about. To simply remove the 'veil' of ignorance, nothing else.

Call off the Search. Simply Look at your own self. Look at your own being-ness. To be alive naturally and conscious is itself the Self.
Consciousness is Life or existence itself, this undeniable awareness of being present, you have always known so well as yourself or 'I' am.
Awareness of being present as oneself or 'I' am is the Self or God. That is the Secret.
Be still and know that 'I' am is this consciousness or God.

That is all the Self that spiritual people frantically spend years by foolishly Seeking far and away simply is.
Pure changeless awareness of being or present-awareness. That 'I' am everybody knows so well.
Nothing but simply being oneself naturally is the Self or this undeniable consciousness
.

lotus4411jpg.jpg (1018 bytes)

Ultimate truth is so simple.

Do nothing and you are there! No effort is required to be.
Simply because everybody alive is already the Self. Most people Seeking the Self don't know that consciousness is Life itself
and therefore do not realize that simply being oneself naturally is itself this undeniable presence of consciousness.
After all, one cannot deny one's own existence even though one cannot see it. 'I' am is certain.

Paradoxically the spiritual or religious Seeker will never accept that ultimate Truth can be so simple.
Always Seeking for something spiritual, something special or extra-ordinary to be freshly acquired.
They want to see the Self as something new, as a blazing light.

But the Self is nothing special or spiritual whatsoever, it is simply one's own self and being.
One own existence is the Self. The Self is 'I' am. Consciousness is 'I' am.
Pure awareness of being.

Everybody is already this undeniable consciousness, who is not aware of himself?
The only mistake for anyone Seeking the Self, is simply not knowing that oneself is already the Self.

Some people foolishly believe the Self is silence and stillness.
But Consciousness is Lively and buoyant. It is existence, it is pure being. It is not silence nor is it stillness but an activity.
The Self is the natural activity of being aware or awareness. You are that unchanging awareness. It is pure changeless being. That is all.

The activity of knowing that you are present or to simply be conscious, is this constant awareness of being or consciousness.
Nothing new or special. The natural activity of being aware is the Self. Awareness is one's thoughtless unchanging true nature.

Consciousness, awareness, being are all synonymous.
There is no becoming awareness. Awareness is already undeniably present here and now.
Paradoxically so common, so familiar and so ordinary that awareness or one's thoughtless true nature is very subtle
and therefore one's true nature is easily overlooked until directly pointed to and re-cognized as being one's own self and being.

For example, just pause thoughts and consciousness remains present as pure changeless being, as pure awareness.
You do not stop being aware without thoughts. You do not stop seeing or hearing or knowing. You are and remain present and aware.

Realize that you are and remain aware anyhow regardless of thoughts or no thoughts.
You can pause thoughts for a little while or pause your breath for a little while
but in no circumstance can you pause being aware.

Awareness is an activity that cannot be stopped. Try it! You cannot stop the activity of seeing.
You cannot stop the activity of hearing and stop the activity of knowing.

You are 'knower', this unchanging presence of awareness itself.
The 'you' that knows that they are no thoughts present is this awareness itself.
You don't come and go like thoughts do, but undeniably remain present and aware.

Do you understand what is being pointed to as the Self, as the Reality?
Some people have no idea and they will spend year after year Seeking for what they have always been and are naturally.
Like a Fish always in the Ocean searching frantically for the Ocean. Never realizing that what they Seek, they already are that.

Wisdom is Freedom. Only ignorance is the obstacle to Freedom.
Get rid of ignorance and the one always eternally Free remains self-revealed.

Did you know that the Self is consciousness?

Not some spiritual consciousness or mystical presence hidden far away somewhere beyond some void that is yet to be reached, no, no.
That is only fantasy! But simple changeless awareness of being present as oneself or present-awareness or 'I' am.

That's right! To simply be aware and to remain aware is to be conscious and that consciousness is the Self.
Consciousness is one's unchanging thoughtless true nature, to simply be conscious is consciousness and that is the sought-after Reality.

Reality is at once being and consciousness. No one can deny being. After all, are you aware of being present as yourself here and now?
Then you undeniably know that you are present only because you are conscious and therefore aware of yourself. 
'I' am present here and now is certain and that present-awareness needs no proof.

Consciousness is not to be found far away, but paradoxically always present closer than close to oneself. It is one's own existence.
It is the very core of one's own being. Consciousness present is Life, existence and one's own self, it is 'I' am.

If you want to know your true nature, don't look far away. No time or effort is required whatsoever.
Just be open to simplicity, openness is the Key to Freedom, nothing else.

For example if you pause thoughts and remain still for a moment,
simply realize that the consciousness that remains undeniably present as unchanging awareness
or the undeniable knowing-ness that there are no thoughts present, is in fact your unchanging thoughtless true nature.

The Self is itself the 'Knower' present or awareness present.
That is all. So simple that you will only laugh at yourself for Seeking the Self. Because 'you' yourself are that.
Awareness is just another name for the familiar unchanging 'you'. Simple changeless awareness is one's thoughtless true nature.

Why should one Seek awareness?

You are awareness, awareness is another name for you
and yet you want to know awareness. You cannot kiss yourself.

You cannot become what you already are anyhow. No amount of effort can give you, 'you'.
Why waste one's life meditating, doing this and doing that for Freedom, when awareness is simply being oneself?
Isn't it foolish ignorance? How can you kiss yourself? You are this presence of awareness itself, there is none other.

Awareness is already present here and now. There is no reaching or becoming awareness become it is 'I' am.
Awareness is just the natural activity of being conscious and therefore aware of being.
To simply be aware is awareness. Why should one Seek it? Look at your own self.
You know that you are and you like it. That is all.

If you are awake from sleep, you are undeniably conscious and therefore aware.
Isn't it funny? That is the Self or the awareness that is sought-after.
To be awake, aware or conscious is one's thoughtless true nature.

You don't have to cultivate awareness.
Simply because you know that you are present and therefore awareness is undeniably present.
The Self is this unchanging awareness of being. Who is not aware of himself?
'I' am is certain.

Just like space, awareness just is. Nothing new or special. It is simply ordinary everyday wakefulness.
Awareness doesn't come or go anywhere but always remain the exact same all day long, stateless and unchanging.
Again just like space, it doesn't come and go or change. It is not brighter or duller. Not higher or lower. No more or no less.

Everybody knows this undeniable presence of awareness so well already.
Everybody knows that they are, everybody knows 'I' am.

After all, look at yourself! Aren't you undeniably aware this very moment anyhow?
Then you need not try to be. Just realize that you are aware and remain aware, that is all, that is the Self.
You are awareness itself right here and now, never changing. Seeing, hearing, being, knowing is this awareness.

What can be any easier than to know one's thoughtless unchanging true nature? Just be still!
That is all you have to do to realize that you are already the Self or unchanging awareness. Just pause thoughts.

Be still and only thoughts will disappear but 'you' don't!
You don't come and go anywhere. You are always present and aware.
Because 'you' yourself are not a thought but awareness, never changing.

Simply pause thoughts and consciousness itself or the Self is self-revealed effortlessly
to simply be your very own self and being. Gee! yoU aRe yoU.

Nothing new is to be freshly acquired for Freedom, simply because nothing was ever lost.
You simply re-cognize that 'you' yourself are this consciousness itself, you already are the Self.

Before chop wood, carry water and after chop wood, carry water. Same, same.
The Search itself is the Trap, nothing else. Only the Search for one's own self ends, that is all Freedom truly is.
Remove ignorance with understanding and you have done all that needed to be done. Understanding is all.

People have heard this simple Truth so many times, right now you are the Self, you are He, you are That.
And yet it doesn't click. Why do they spend years Seeking for something that they have always been and are?

Why wasting some much time trying to become something new or different, when the Self is already present as their own self?
It is all a strange paradox. People Seeking the Self are only 'veiled' by ignorance.
Not knowing how close the Truth is, they Seek it far away.

To be conscious or awake from sleep is to be aware or awareness.
Understand that the Self you Seek to know is truly yourself. Realize that to be awake is to be aware.
You are this unchanging presence of awareness that is known to all as 'I' am.
Awareness of being present is the Self, the Sought-after Reality.

The only trouble is the desire to see the Self or consciousness as something spiritual, as something new or special.
But the Self or consciousness is one's true nature and nothing other than plain ordinary everyday consciousness, nothing more than this.
To simply be conscious, to be aware and remain aware is to be the Self, that is all consciousness is.
Awareness of being present as oneself or present-awareness.

Just like the unchanging ever-present space in front of you, consciousness is already and always undeniably present with oneself.
It is one's own undeniable existence, nothing whatsoever spiritual or religious, spiritual carrots and religious beliefs
are only used to entice the ignorant Seeker to look away from the Self and therefore remain ignorant of the Self.

The Secret to Freedom is that the Self also known as the Reality is always present within your own dwelling.
Not outside yourself but undeniably present right here closer than close, present as your own existence, as your own self and being.

Reality cannot to be found as something new, spiritual or special outside yourself or acquired far away or from others,
but paradoxically ever-present naturally and unchanging with yourself, as your own undeniable being-ness.
Always turn toward your own self for Freedom, toward that 'I' am you know.

Know yourself and if you know yourself then you know the Infinite Self, the Oneness or the so called Kingdom of God.
The Self or consciousness is the unseen Spirit of Life itself that some call God, present in you and in all.
Life, consciousness is the Oneness. God is simply Life itself, that is all.

You cannot know this consciousness or the Self or the Reality as something new, different or apart from you.
But in fact as simply being what you have always been and are. As being yourself.

Just the way you are right now, this very moment, you are that.

Who is not aware of himself?
That is what 'I' am represents, the Self or pure being.
'I' am that 'I' am is the best definition. You already are what you Seek.
Awareness of being is the Self, it is that 'I' am you know so well as your own being.

Just common ordinary being-ness or one's own everyday ordinary self is the Sought-after Reality.
Look at your own self! Know thyself and the 'veil' of ignorance is removed. You are already that. You simply didn't know it.

Not knowing this simple Truth is the only cause of all mischief. The false notion of separation
The simple truth is that being oneself is being the Self. Consciousness is Life, existence and one's true nature.
To Seek it is to miss it. To look for it is to look away from it.
To get to know oneself or 'I' is to know it.

That is why the Self will never be what people expect it to be.
The one who Seeks the Self as something new, spiritual or special will never know the Self.
Throw away all your spiritual and religious beliefs, books and ideas and you are there!

Reality is nothing whatsoever spiritual, nothing new or some religious concept acquired from some book.
The Self, the Reality, He is just simple changeless awareness of being, nothing else.

After all, who is not aware of himself? Who is not aware of being? Each one knows and yet doesn't know the Self.
Awareness of being present as oneself is the Self, that is the Reality that is sought-after. Look at your own self. That is all.
Never far away but closer than close. Call off the Search, here and now 'you' are that.

One's own undeniable existence is the Self, known to all as awareness of being or 'I' am.
No one can deny being, 'I' am is certain. Be still and know that 'I' am is that unchanging awareness.
Consciousness is indeed always with us. Everybody knows that they are.

If you don't understand what consciousness simply means, look it up in the dictionary.
The natural activity of being conscious or being aware is consciousness also known as the Self.
Realize that you are conscious or aware and remain aware, that is all awareness or consciousness simply is.

Awareness present or present-awareness is this consciousness and one's true nature.
What else did you expect the Self to be, a blazing light?

To be conscious or consciousness is unchanging awareness of being.
To be conscious or consciousness is 'I' am.

That is the Secret to Freedom hidden in plain view.
Are you conscious? Are you are aware of being present as yourself, you know that you are?
Voila! That is what the Self simply is, awareness of being present as oneself.
'I' or 'I' am is this consciousness or unchanging awareness.

After all, who is not aware of himself?
You know that you are and you like it. Awareness of being is bliss.

Know Thyself.
The Self, the Reality or consciousness is 'I' am.
No one can deny being. No one can say 'I' am not. No one can negate one's own self and say 'I' don't exist.
'I' am is certain and needs no proof. One's own undeniable existence is this presence of consciousness itself, He and Reality.

Be happy with what you are absolutely certain of, and the only undeniable certainty is that you are.
'I' am is certain. That is the only fact you can sure of, is the simple fact of your own being. You undeniably know that you are.
Existence is the same as happiness and happiness is the same as being. Why should one Seek it?

Consciousness is existence and cannot to be acquired from others. Consciousness is present here and now. Life is Now only!
Some people become worshippers of dead people, praying to the past and worshipping ashes and graveyards.


To understand this consciousness. Dead people cannot help you.
The past is gone! Forget about it and realize that existence is happening right here and now, this very moment.
Not a moment ago or the next moment, but right here and right now is 'I' am. That is the only reality, this actual moment of existence.

To simply be conscious and aware of being oneself presently is 'I' am. That is the Self, the Reality, the eternal that is sought-after.
Consciousness is awareness of being. Consciousness is 'I' am.

Not someone holy or special or somebody else outside yourself, but one's own being is this consciousness, one's own self is the Reality.
Turn within and look at yourself, look at your own being. Reality or the self is simply being oneself, just this and nothing else.

After all, who is aware of this and that? 'I' am of course!
What does 'I' am represent? Consciousness. Consciousness present is pure awareness of being.
Then who is bound and who needs to be liberated, when being oneself is consciousness?

You already are what you Seek to find.
Call off the Search. What 'you' Seek to find is consciousness and 'you' are consciousness. Gee! yoU aRe yoU.
Because of ignorance people believe that there is duality and separation, when in fact being oneself is consciousness
Just this and nothing else is Omni-present as one's own self and everyday being. Being oneself is being the Self. Thou Art that.

The trap for so many Seekers is not knowing or simply realizing that they are already the Self, the Oneness and Free.
The greatest ignorance is the false concept of duality, the illusion that there is a 'mind' and 'ego' to overcome for Freedom.

Yet if one investigates intelligently for himself, 'mind' and 'ego' will nowhere to be found.
Just a false concept and false belief accepted to be true that was never investigated.
After all, can you show me your 'mind'?

Ego is not! Mind is Not. You are the Self, the Oneness or consciousness already and ever-Free!
Many will spend years foolishly trying to overcome or go beyond a phantom or something that is not even there, just falsely believed to be.
Like the sky is blue or a burned rope or a mirage. One only 'believes' that there is bondage when in fact there is only liberation.

Like the story of the Camel that believes himself to be bound with an illusory rope.
One only 'believes' himself to be bound, and yet there is no bondage at all, that is the paradox.

The strange paradox is that the one who strives year after year to go beyond the so called 'mind'
is already beyond the 'mind', simply because 'mind' doesn't exist and never existed.
Just false imagination, that Realization alone is Freedom from all bondage.

Know the simple truth! That one only believes that there is bondage, that there is a 'mind' and 'ego' present or duality and separation.
But in fact there is no bondage, there is no 'mind' and there is no 'ego', there is no duality but only Oneness and Freedom.


That is the Secret, there is no bondage at all, but only liberation. One's own self is already the Self.

Because of ignorance people Seeking Freedom do not realize
that they were never bound, but in fact ever-Free.

Duality and separation is not, you yourself are the One without a second or this Oneness already. Thou Art That.
After all, take a look at yourself and see for yourself what binds you. Look for your 'chains' and they will not be found.

That is the only way to remove ignorance and the false notion or illusion of separation and bondage.
Investigate, take a look and see. The false cannot stand up to investigation if you do the inquiry and take a look and see.

There is no duality, there is no separation, that is the Realization, that 'I' is already Real-'I'-zed!
That to be oneself is awareness, that 'I' am or one's own self and being is that consciousness or the Self already.

'Mind' an 'ego' are just dualistic concepts acquired from others, that people only falsely believe to be true,
when in fact the false 'belief' in two selves, in separation or duality alone is itself the illusion of duality and separation.
Bondage is only false imagination, nothing else. Most people accept the false to be true and reject the simple Truth to be false.

People falsely imagine themselves to be this or that, when all there is ever-present with oneself as oneself is solely consciousness.
People will call consciousness 'mind', but there is no 'mind'. People will call consciousness 'ego', but there is no 'ego'.
Only the seemingly dividing of consciousness into this and that concept creates the illusion of duality.

Just like Gold can have many shapes, many forms and yet the essence always remains the same, unchanging as Gold.
All there is present with oneself is always pure consciousness, just this Oneness or Omni-presence exist and there is nothing else.

Even all thoughts and feelings are only this consciousness or Oneness or Omni-presence. There couldn't be no ice without water.

All thoughts, all Feelings and emotions are simply a movement of consciousness on consciousness.
Just like all waves moving on the surface of the Ocean are nothing but the expression and the essence of the Ocean itself.
Know this simple Truth! Understand this consciousness. That all there is present, is consciousness. Just this and nothing else.

Where the ignorant falsely believe himself to be a finite separate individual self, apart from the Oneness.
The wise knows that being oneself is in fact being the Oneness or the One without a second and the Infinite Self.

Who waits for Freedom dies ignorant. Freedom is not reached, it is not freshly acquired or an event because it is already here.
Understanding is all. Just the 'veil' of ignorance about one's true identity and real nature is removed.
Nothing else is called Freedom. Investigate and get to know the real 'you'. Who am 'I'?

Freedom is not the acquisition of anything new, different, special or spiritual.
But only the removal of the false notion of being bound. That is all it is. That is the Secret to Freedom.
There is no reaching the Self or becoming the Self. You are the Self, you are already that.

Because of ignorance many people including self-appointed Gurus will perpetuate the illusion of duality and separation
when in fact there is only consciousness ever-present as 'I' or oneself. Know thyself. That is the Secret to Freedom.
See the false as false and only Oneness remains self-revealed as simply being oneself.

Don't be a blind sheep! Have the heart of a Tiger and find out who 'you' truly are.
Take a look and see for yourself who 'you' really are. Get to know yourself, get to know your true nature.
No one else can do that for you. Only you can know your true nature and remove acquired ignorance about 'you'.
Self-discovery is to know thyself. Turn toward your own self and being. Investigate who am 'I' really? Find out who you truly are.

After all, the 'you' that believe himself to be bound and that is Seeking Freedom, is in fact the 'you' that you are looking for.
Funny paradox! Gee! yoU aRe yoU. Realizing that 'you' yourself are the Self, this Oneness or consciousness is Freedom itself.

Ignorance is the only obstacle to Freedom. Remove all acquired ignorance from others, spiritual Gurus and holy books.
Throw it all away down the toilette. Attachment to ignorance or believing the false to be true is the only bondage.
There is no bondage and there is no liberation, you are the Self already and are already eternally Free.

Self-appointed Gurus and spiritual Teachers, Sages and Jnanis etc, many write book after book describing great spiritual experiences.
Some create stories and fantasies of holy transmissions, others a religious Grace of God is used, some put their hand on people's head,
some stare in people's eyes and all that crap, all for show to entice the ignorant with all kind of spiritual concepts and practices.
Simply used to keep the Seeker bound to ignorance, some will point their disciples to seek silence and mental stillness.

All that garbage becomes a reference point that keeps the ignorant Seeker to get absolutely nowhere
but to remain stuck to an endless path of false beliefs and Seeking God knows what. Paradoxically the Search is itself the Trap.

After all, if you have been Seeking the permanent, the Reality or the eternal for a long time when it is ever-present here and now.
Then perhaps you may realize that you have been given the wrong address or wrong pointers toward this consciousness
which always is undeniably present with oneself. What the Self, the Reality or one's true nature is truly all about.

That which is already undeniably present and unchanging whith oneself is the Self, the Reality.
The presence of consciousness which is the real existence. There is no becoming the Self. The Self or consciousness is not reached.
Most Seekers have no clue or no idea that in fact the Self or one's true nature is simply common ordinary everyday consciousness.

Just this and nothing else is one's true nature. Consciousness is not to be achieved, it is already there, take a look and see.
It is present here and now as one's own self and being. It is that 'I' or 'I' am you know so well as your own self and being.
Consciousness is constant awareness of being. Unchanging awareness. Reality is simply being oneself, it is 'I' am.

Why Seek consciousness far and away, when it is always ever-present within your own dwelling? Look at your own self.
Closer than close to oneself. The Self you Seek to know is simply yourself. Here and now you are that.

The ignorant worshippers and believers will make consciousness be some thing that it is not.
Something special, something spiritual or extra-ordinary, when in fact it is simply Life itself.
It is beating your heart and shining through your eyes this very moment.

It is here and now. That is what 'I' or 'I' am represents, pure awareness of being.
One's own undeniable existence is the Divine. Consciousness or the Self is nothing new, apart or far away.
It is simply being oneself. That is the Real-'I'-zation.

There is no bondage and therefore there is no liberation.
Ignorance about one's true nature and real identity is the only illusion of separation.
Once you understand what this consciousness truly is, you will laugh at yourself for trying to discover the Self.

Consciousness is not what people Seeking Reality are falsely lead to believe, nothing new, nothing spiritual or special.
Nothing to be freshly acquired, nothing spiritual to be reached or to become with any kind of spiritual practice or effort.

Consciousness or the Self is just simple changeless awareness of being. To be conscious is the Self. That is all.
Consciousness is the real presence of existence. So common and ordinary to anyone alive.
That to Seek it is to only look away from it.

To simply be alive and aware of being oneself naturally or to simply be conscious is to be it.
The Self or consciousness is Life itself and unchanging awareness of being.
Reality is at once consciousness and being oneself or 'I' am.

If you want to know the Self, the Reality and Freedom from all bondage. Don't look far away.
Instead of looking for anything new, anything spiritual, different or special.

Simply notice the presence of consciousness which always is undeniably present and unchanging with 'you'.
You know this undeniable presence of consciousness so well already as 'I' am.
Consciousness is present-awareness or awareness of being.
That is your eternal true nature.

Call it God, the Self, the Reality, the Atman, the Oneness or whatever.
The point to understand is that consciousness is the core of one's own being.
Being oneself or 'I' am is the Self and the final Reality.

Everybody is already the Self, they simply don't realize it. Consciousness is never far away but so dear and so near to everybody.
So familiar and so subtle is one's true nature, that unless it is directly pointed to, it is simply overlooked.
After all, there is nothing closer to oneself and more familiar to oneself than oneself.
The Self you Seek to know is truly yourself.

~ THE CAMEL ~

     Once upon a time, there was a caravan of thirty camels traveling through the Sahara desert on their way to Cairo, Egypt's Grand market. As the sun was going down beyond the horizon, the Sheik & his people decided to make camp for their first night long journey through the Desert and have some rest.

As the Camel keepers tied down the camels to the sandy ground for the night, they came to realize that they only brought twenty nine wooden pegs with them on this long trip and they really needed  thirty. Confused and not knowing what to do, one of the keeper runs to the tent where the sheik was resting. "Master, Master" he calls, we have thirty camels but we only brought twenty nine pegs, what should we do?

The Sheik ponders about this problem for a little while and then declares:
"These Camels are pretty stupid animals, simply pretend to tie him down, and it will stay put for the night!"

So they followed the sheik's orders and pretend to tie down the Camel with an illusory rope and peg, and sure enough the Camel stays there without moving an inch all night long, strongly believing that he was tied down to a real rope.

The next morning, after untying all the Camels, the caravan was packed up and ready to go, as they were leaving for their very long journey through the Desert, the keepers took a look back after a few hundred yards, to see if they did not forget and leave anything important at the camp site. In their amazement the one Camel they pretended to tie down the night before, did not move a bit, still standing exactly were he was standing the night before.

Very confused one of the Camel’s keepers runs to the Sheik and tells him what seems to be the problem. "Master, Master, the Camel we pretended to tie down last night as you told us to do, is now not moving at all and not following the caravan with the other camels, what should we do?"

The Sheik being a man of great wisdom, ponders over the problem and the answer dawned on him. " Ahaaaaaa! The only reason why this camel is not moving, is because he did not realize the truth, he does not know that he is already free, he still believes strongly to be bound to an illusory rope that does not exist, you just forgot to pretend to untie him!

Master the Camel was always free all along, there never was a rope present to bound him at all, just the belief of one, but still he will refused to accept that he was free to move and roam freely?

The Sheik answers: "Yes! Yes! that's right. The Camel is already free, but a Camel is a very stupid animal, he won't question his belief and look if there is really a rope that bounds him, he won't accept that he is free, so you must make sure that you pretend to untie him and make him feel that he is being liberated and given freedom.

Make sure you make a big show with very big motions, so that he is convinced that you are liberating him from this false belief of bondage, from this illusory bondage of being tied down by an illusory rope and then he will accept that he has freedom or liberation even though he was never bound!"
