Hello and welcome to this website about the philosophy of nonduality.  In 2011, all psychological suffering and fear suddenly evaporated when objective reality was seen as a misperception. At awakening, I saw directly, deeply, and clearly what I am – what you are, and everything is…a perfectly spontaneous appearance of an unknowable, unspeakable, primal, edgeless, infinite, nothingness…which many seekers and philosophers attempt to make relative and relatable by naming and claiming this as God, Source, Eternity, Cosmos, etc…

The concept of a relative God keeps many stuck in unexamined beliefs about the world and what God is and isn’t, and what they hope God to provide upon the death of the body.  Many assume there is a heaven and a hell at death. A belief in time perpetuates an unfolding universe across a continuum of past, now, and future.  In truth, linear time is a mental concept, a consensus belief.  A belief in horizontal or linear time allows God, Source, Reality, or Life to appear relative and relational to a personal self also living a horizontal or linear timeline.  At awakening, there was a complete understanding that there is only vertical time, only NOW.

Since 2011, I’ve been writing about and pointing towards the ancient, nondual philosophy of living. There is seeing, but no one is seeing. In fact, these words will likely seem crazy and upside down to almost everyone reading these words except those few who are quite weary, those quickly approaching death, or those finally realizing their utter frailty and lack of substance.

I encourage you to deeply explore WHAT you are.  It appears we live in a culture driven by beliefs and concepts of fear and conformity. Nearly all humans swallow the traditions, facts, rules, and concepts they have learned or been instructed to learn yet very few have ever deeply explored and asked penetrating questions about the impact of these unexamined beliefs.

It’s so hard and counter-intuitive NOT to believe our teachers, parents, professors, friends, spiritual leaders, and all those we esteem in higher education, religion, science, and philosophy when they tell us over and over that we are separate and distinct human beings…and yet most of these folks have never inquired about what they truly are.

It’s challenging to fly against the prevailing winds and beliefs of society but I encourage you to be brave because you are precious and unique just as you are, a reflection of the light and mystery of the unknowable. And you are lovely and loving beyond your wildest imaginings.
