Awakening as What Simply Is

Awakening as What Simply Is

Awakening to the true nature of all appearances, of beingness, appeared in 2011, and the beliefs of existing as a personal self known as Anita dissolved.  At awakening, all the words and phrases of the English language were not adequate to speak of this timeless, edgeless, seamless beingness, this vastness of nothing appearing as everything. And here I am…attempting to describe and share this nondual philosophy, these teachings of infinite, edgeless, timeless emptiness appearing as Life.

The nondual philosophy, contemplative photography, and poetry on this site reflect the core truths woven through the imaginary world’s major religions and point to nothing appearing as everything, the non-existence of a world and personal self. The writings also reflect the Perennial Wisdom Teachings and A Course in Miracles. 

Day to day I seem to appear as a separate and flawed human being but this is only an appearance of nothing appearing as everything, including nothing as a me. There is an aliveness and stillness that is beyond human comprehension.

Only he who loses his life will find it.  – Jesus of Nazareth

Whoever discovers the true meaning of these sayings will never die: Let the seeker not stop seeking until he finds. And when he finds, he will be greatly troubled. And after he has been troubled, he will be astonished, and he will reign over the All. -Jesus of Nazareth (Gospel of Thomas)

Here is just emptiness. There is no getting my ego out of the way, and all that stuff. There is just seeing, shining in great brilliance and clarity.  –  Douglas Harding

The ultimate mystery of being is beyond all categories of thought. Joseph Campbell

The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me: my eye and God’s eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love.  – Meister Eckhart
