Mode of Being

The error in your approach is that the tool that you are using to understand the world cannot help you understand Understanding. Wrong means, wrong outcome.
The picture is the Light contacting the screen, Consciousness in contact with mind, appearance. When attention shifts from the screen to Consciousness, the spell of the world is broken.
Put these words into practice, not as a practice, but rather as a mode of being. It is what really matters and is what separates the earnest from those less so. As such, my words are only for the fittest ears.
For the rest, a constancy of conscious communion is best.

Death, Really?

Death is hearsay, something you’ve heard about but haven’t experienced.
In one sense, nothing dies. Energy is converted from one form to another.
At death, the body reverts to the inert condition it was in as an unfertilized ovum.
Yet, in another sense, everything dies because the waking state, upon which all is founded, itself dies.
Because I am, other objects can be. If I am not, nothing is. Is this not true for you also?

Another Myth of Enlightenment

Another myth of enlightenment is that memory and personality are gone.
However, memory isn’t wiped out; it persists. The outcome of memory, personality, is still there. The body is still there.
Was Ramana without memories, without personality or a form?
The organism has now fallen into a natural rhythm and it functions in the needful way, without self-referral.
There is no longer any dissatisfaction with the world. They can never do anything wrong because they have transcended the continuum of right and wrong.

Wu Hsin on Facebook

It’s been brought to my attention that there is a certain ongoing disruption going on as relates to my possible death and all the FB noise concerning Wu Hsin and myself.
Let’s try to clear all that up.
To anyone who has actually taken the time to read the Intro on the FB page, there should be no confusion.
I am the translator of the pre-A.D. documents that, in sum, would constitute the Lost Writings.
I have nothing to do with the ‘second’ Master Szuhsin Wu-Hsin (1044-1115).
Nor do I have anything to do with the recently passed third Wu Hsin, whose exceptional insights filled the FB page.
However, the entire matter misses the point. Whether or not the Krishna portrayed in the Gita actually lived as a historical personage in no way affects the message of the Gita. You can assume that he lived or you can take it to be a literary form intended to convey a non-conventional viewpoint.
The words need to stand and fall on their own merit. Fixation on the message, not the messenger, is what is key. If one is truly thirsty, the vessel that the water comes in is of little importance.
Suggestions that I’m only in it for the money are not even worthy of reply.
To be honest, I have known Lu Feng Xin for a time and have agreed to offer my support to her should a need arise.
I hope that this extinguishes the ‘fire’.
