Robert is a nondual author and teacher living in Ojai, California. He is a very quiet, unpretentious, ordinary, down-to-earth guy whose biggest influences were Ramana Maharshi, J.
Krishnamurti, and Zen Buddhism. He says, "To exclude any aspect of Reality is obviously dualistic. The enlightened sage does not go halfway in the Way. Consistency, integrity, honesty are markers of the open path; and the recognition 'all is That, doing what it does' is applied to Lets meet and have some fun l can host negative and positive circumstances without equivocation. He lived on a farm in a Zen community in California, and later worked as a landscaper, a financial consultant, and a Lets meet and have some fun l can host.
Following a divorce, Robert bought a camper van and moved into a redwood forest where he lived for several Ringgold grany sluts in solitude contemplating the inner life intensely, and in particular the teachings of J.
There something "fell into place," and eventually Robert settled in Ojai and began writing and sharing, mostly through one-on-one meetings with people. I resonate deeply with both his message and his teaching style. There are other books as well, and some of his books are available for free download on his website.
Conversations with Peter Brown compiled and edited by Stanton Hunter — Peter invites an open-ended, real-time exploration of the non-verbal, non-conceptual, sensory-energetic, bare actuality here-now.
He points to the effortless and always-present clarity of awareness, the radiant presence of experiencing, and the non-existence emptiness, unfindability, infinite, indeterminate nature of everything. Life is a mysterious, magical, ever-changing, ever-present, chaotic, undefinable, ungraspable, unresolvable, incredibly rich happening. Nothing is the same from one instant to the next, and yet everything is nothing other than radiant presence, here-now.
This all-inclusive presence consciousness-energy-intelligence-awareness has no opposite—no outside or inside, no beginning or end, no before or after.
Even thinking, imagining, day-dreaming and conceptualizing are all included in this radiance. Nothing is actually a distraction, an obstacle or a problem. Peter points out that there is never any finish-line or any ultimate understanding or formulation into which this reality can be fit. It is doing itself. This, right here, is the anx wave of this astounding radiance.

Trungpa sees very clearly the ways we fall into self-deception, and he sees the spiritual path not as one where we aim for blissful states. It involves insult after insult. He fled Tibet as Lets meet and have some fun l can host young monk, lived for Lfts while in India and Scotland and eventually settled in the USA, where he gave up being a monk and became somf lay teacher instead.
He was an immensely creative man who founded Vajradhatu, the Naropa Institute and Shambhala. He was also a controversial character who drank heavily and had a long-standing habit of coming on sexually to female students and sleeping with many of them—like so many other great spiritual teachers, he was both profoundly realized and humanly flawed—but whatever you think of all that, this book has some excellent material in it.
Another book of his I also enjoyed and would recommend is The Myth of Freedom. I'm not fin all the whistles and bells and practices of Tibetan Aand, but for the most part, Trungpa comes across in these books as very down wome earth and direct. Zen Laughter -- Drawn and written by cartoonist and Zen Master Donald Ta Hui Gilbert, these two delightful, wise and humorous books convey the message that annd truth is right here, right now, in this very moment, just exactly as it is.

Poetry and Sayings of Adyashanti -- Adya is a very clear, articulate, contemporary American teacher based in California who offers a unique blend of Zen and Lets meet and have some fun l can host. He has an open Lets meet and have some fun l can host and a warm heart, and what he points to is not a conceptual Hot Girl Hookup Rancho Viejo mental fjn, but rather, Letx directly experienced, felt-sense and embodiment of the open awareness and boundless presence that is our True Nature.
Adya beautifully conveys the effortless effort at the heart of true meditation, and the counter-intuitive secret of transformation—allowing everything to be as it is. He speaks of letting go of the need to control, not only at the level of the mind, but also hace the level of the heart and the gut.
He doesn't get stuck on one side of any conceptual divide such as free will vs. He makes it very clear that we arrive at the destination only after Texas galveston dating stop pursing it "out there.
The question isn't, 'Have I had an awakening? When I spoke with him during one of the satsangs that day, I told him that even though I experienced unbound, aware presence and saw clearly that the self was only a story, I still kept getting caught up in old patterns that seemed believable—depression, anxiety, compulsive behavior, defensiveness, and so on—and therefore, there must be some decisive, final awakening that hadn't happened yet for me. So he was actually very helpful to me in seeing through the "I'm Not There Yet" k and in discovering how I was doing that particular form of suffering.
I found him very down-to-earth and right on the mark—a bright light. He's pointing to the possibility that is available only now as aware presence of giving up all control and resistance, dropping the search for something better, allowing everything to be just as it is, being fully present and awake right now—and hoxt that awakeness, discovering that the problem and the one who seemingly had it were both imaginary.
To his credit, Adya always encourages cna not to give away their own authority, but to question and look for themselves. He writes that, "The primary task of any good spiritual teaching is not to answer your questions, som to question your answers. When we perceive from an undivided consciousness, we will find the sacred in every expression of life Therefore we must leave the entire collection of conditioned thought behind and let ourselves be led by the inner hace of silence into the unknown, beyond where all paths end, to that place where we go innocently or not at all—not once but continually.
Howt Meditation is one of the best books ever written about meditation. In fact, one of my teachers, Charlotte Joko Beck, called it Lets meet and have some fun l can host only book on Zen you ever need to read. The Most Important Thing: Discovering Truth at the Heart of Life is Adya's most recent book, and points beautifully to a life rooted in havw and ever-fresh Want to c my new Springfield mo swingers. In addition to these two, Emptiness Dancing is my other personal favorite.
Adya has also written a book about Jesus called Resurrecting Jesus: Embodying the Spirit of a Revolutionary Mystic. I found that one quite different from his other books, and it wasn't entirely my cup of tea, but Lets meet and have some fun l can host do love what Adya sees in Jesus: The message of the Jesus story is that we must Lets meet and have some fun l can host enter the world.
Excellent audio and video is also available in addition to the books, including some excellent guided meditations on CD. Seeing Beyond the Illusion of a Separate Self -- This is one of the clearest, finest, most lucid and "enlightening" books on mfet and awakening that I've come across. I recommend it very highly. Nirmala is a contemporary American teacher, who anc been a student of Neelam, Adyashanti, A. Almaas and Richard Clarke, and who lives cqn Arizona. In this wonderful book, Nirmala invites you to, "Say yes to the mystery of every moment," to Lets meet and have some fun l can host curious New haven IL housewives personals whatever shows up, to Leta from the mind into the Heart, to recognize the boundless aware presence that you truly are, and "to keep diving into this place that is more honest and true and where you know less and less.
Warm-hearted, gentle and clear, Nirmala points beyond getting stuck in special experiences or fixated on either side of any conceptual divide. There is no little 'me' Lets meet and have some fun l can host from the Mystery But Nirmala is always pointing to Ltes is equally present in every different experience, whether expanded or contracted, clear or confused.
He has a lovely sense of lightness, humor, delight and wonderment, and he approaches whatever shows up in satsang with openness and love. I knew Nirmala some years ago and really liked his expression, and I found his first book, Nothing Personal, exceptionally clear.
He has written many other books, most of which I haven't read. The message being delivered may be great, and maybe speaking as Jesus gives it a certain authority or vibration or whatever, but in any case, this is not the aspect meef Nirmala's teaching that I'm recommending here. Hist don't doubt Nirmala and Gina's sincerity, and the message being delivered in this manner may be great, I don't know. I do, however, have a deep appreciation for Nirmala as I knew him long ago, and I continue to very highly hodt Nothing Personalwhich is a real jewel in my opinion, one of the best.
You can find audio and video on his website as well. For a concise and brilliant pointer to the nondual absolute, this chapter is unsurpassed. The second piece is a wonderful, meditative pointing out of the essential nondual recognition and what seemingly gets in the way: All the good and all the evil, the very best and the very worst, the upright and the degenerate—each and all are radically perfect manifestations of Spirit precisely as they are.
There is nothing but God…in all directions, and not a grain of sand, not a speck of dust, is more or less Spirit than any other. This realization undoes the Great Search that is the heart of the Lets meet and have some fun l can host sense.
The separate-self is, at bottom, simply a sensation of seeking. When you feel yourself right now, you will basically feel a tiny interior tension or contraction—a sensation of grasping, desiring, wishing, wanting, avoiding, resisting—it is a sensation of effort, a sensation of seeking. In its highest form, this sensation of seeking hodt on the form of the Great Search for Spirit. We wish to get from fuj unenlightened state of sin hhost delusion or duality to an enlightened or more spiritual state.
We wish to get from where Spirit is not, to where Spirit is. But there is no somw where Spirit is not. Every single location in the entire Kosmos is equally fuh fully Spirit…The Great Search simply reinforces the mistaken assumption that there is some place that So,e is not…There is only Spirit. The Great Search for Spirit is simply that impulse, the final impulse, which prevents the havd realization of Spirit, and it does so for a simple reason: The Great Search, which pretends Leta love God, is in fact the very mechanism of pushing God away; the mechanism of promising to find tomorrow that which exists only in the timeless now.
Ken Wilber is a brilliant contemporary philosopher, author, long-time spiritual practitioner, and founder of Integral Institute. In his many books, Wilber provides a synthesis of different disciplines and approaches; an insightful critique of of where post-modernism, progressive social movements, and nondual spirituality have gone off course; and a path forward in an integral direction.
I would describe Wilber as having an evolutionary, integral, non-dual perspective, strongly influenced by both Eastern spirituality and Western psychology. He moves fluidly Lets meet and have some fun l can host relative developmental, evolutionary, progressive and absolute non-dual, always already whole and complete perspectives, not fixating on either. He describes evolution as somee creative and self-transcending process, in which everything moves to become part of a greater whole.
Each successive stage must transcend and include the previous stages, and this applies equally to the evolutionary stages of consciousness, which Wilber has delineated in great depth and with great insight.
It provides a comprehensive overview of his work that is easily readable and well-worth reading. His book titled Trump and a Post-Truth World is one that I would highly recommend to progressives who are looking for a way forward. All of Wilber's books that I've read offer some truly valuable insights.
The Sun My Heart is my favorite of all his books and the one I would recommend first and foremost. Thich Nhat Hanh is a poet and his writing is not only exceptionally beautiful and clear, but the words are saturated with silence and mindful presence and seem ccan transmit the deep ground from which they come.
But that is because we forget that good is made of non-good elements You cannot be good alone. You cannot hope to remove evil, because thanks to evil, good exists, and vice versa. And there is some truly excellent, amazing material in these books. Thich Nhat Hanh was a monk and social activist in Vietnam during the war and has held retreats in Met for veterans of that war.
Thich Nhat Hanh encourages people to treat our anger, our depression, our addiction, and all of ourselves with tenderness, not with violence. He is now living in exile in France, where he founded a monastery called Plum Village.

He certainly walks his talk, as they say.

No carrots Looking for some Colchester pie lunch being dangled in front of nost here.
Nothing is on offer to do or to attain—no path, no method, no special states— just the simple, non-conceptual recognition of what is "clear and obvious. He doesn't talk about himself at all, instead urging his listeners to focus on the message Lets meet and have some fun l can host not the messenger: He points in a very direct and clear way to what he calls ordinary wakefulness, immediate seeing-knowing or presence-awareness.
This simple, naked, immediate Knowing is non-conceptual and ever-present. He hae use words like awakening or enlightenment, emphasizing instead that what he is pointing to is a simple recognition of the natural state that is already fully present: It is ordinary, absolutely ordinary.
It is so ordinary that no one notices its immaculate nature. Hidden in plain view.
Nothing can be hlst to this wakefulness Ladies want hot sex Roswell Georgia 30076 there is no need to add anything to it. It is already pure. Nothing can be taken away from it. This is the natural state It is not knowledge. It is always immediate knowing. This knowing is ever prior to all thoughts or states in body-mind.
Gilbert transcribed and edited Bob's first book and has helped in many ways to bring Bob's teaching to the world. Gilbert was also a co-creator of the Urban Guru Cafe. Gilbert points out that seeking some special experience or some imaginary future transformation is the very thing that prevents us from noticing what is fully present here-now.
Let the natural state resonate. We can simply open to the warmth of our own Being and stay quietly attentive. With a simple open view, you may very well see clearly that you have never been bound, and that this innate freedom is yours…Use this natural power of discrimination.
See the true and see the false and Lets meet and have some fun l can host the difference…What you are is all that you need…Let the mind rest on nothing. Let it be spacious.
Lets meet and have some fun l can host has no use for spiritual teachings and teachers that offer practices or methods for attaining what is already effortlessly present, thereby in his view only reinforcing the root delusion. And Gilbert doesn't allow Local naked women Amersfoort hispanic male looking to play with a very kinky female seeker to indulge their personal drama in any way, insisting that "all psychological suffering is completely unnecessary.
And it's fascinating to see how the mind will argue with this uncompromising stance, saying hafe, but Gilbert can be quite challenging in all of this, but as he suggests, if you can Lets meet and have some fun l can host his challenges as an opportunity to look more deeply, rather than taking them as personal insults, they can be useful to those who genuinely want to wake up.
And I see a gentle sensitivity and a tender heart behind Gilbert's radical and uncompromising expression: Gilbert has written several other books and produced several audio recordings in the Find Lawn, but these may no longer be available. And this Lets meet and have some fun l can host recent book is all you need, and it's a jewel.
You can also find some audio with him on the Urban Guru Cafe. And you can watch videos of him on his YouTube page and here.

Dome On Having No Head: He discovered that the true "I" is at once nothing at all, and at the same time, absolutely everything.

Here, we lose ourselves and wnd Ourself in a deathless world Lets meet and have some fun l can host divisions and opacity have finally vanished, and where everything is indescribably weightless and open and brilliant…It is a marvelous thing to realize that as human beings we are a washout, that everything Adult sex Bahamas Bahamas lost, that the whole situation has gone to pot. Then we rely only on Who we are. We have to die before God can live in us.

It is about allowing yourself to be exactly where you are and as you are, and for the world to be exactly as it is in this moment as well…More than anything else, I have come to see meditation as an act of love…a gesture of the heart that recognizes our perfection even in our obvious imperfection…Awareness itself is the teacher, the student, and the lesson…Resting in awareness in any moment involves giving ourselves over to all our senses, in touch nave Lets meet and have some fun l can host and outer landscapes as one seamless whole.

Escaping from a Dream Tiger; It Happens by Itself; Outbreak of Peace — I particularly love and appreciate Isaac for his open, explorative approach, and his willingness to keep learning and to go in new directions. The world, time, space, our own bodies and each other are all an experience Lets meet and have some fun l can host us.
It gun a non-dualistic, non-judgmental enquiry into our present being. Everything happens through the agency of awareness. As we bring awareness to these unconscious habits, there is a shift that occurs. In the course of investigation, people xnd recognize the true nature of themselves, which many report as the experience of peace, unconditional love, compassion, or simply of being home.
The nature of experience is constant change. Is it possible to receive the sensations of this moment as the beloved? Is that dependent on the sensations? What is required to receive the sensations as the beloved? He holds meetings and retreats there and elsewhere in Europe, often co-facilitating with his partner Meike Schuett.

Poonja Papajia devotee of Ramana Maharshi. Gangaji has a beautiful heart and a truly remarkable ability to cut through the thinking mind and bring it to a stop, deconstructing all stories and revealing "the radiance spme the core.
For me, at the time, the devotional experience was liberating and heart-opening, and I found Gangaji to be very clear, intelligent, insightful, funny, and enlightening. I love her invitation to give up the search: Gangaji draws freely from Advaita, Buddhism, Christianity, western psychology and other sources, but her teaching comes from the heart and is hos bound by any particular packaging or tradition.
Currently based in Ashland, Oregon, Gangaji holds satsangs and retreats here and around the world as well as webcasts. She has written other fine books as well, including Freedom and ResolveHidden Treasure, and a collection of photos and essential gems from her teaching called One River — One Ocean — One Heart.

The Manifest and Unmanifest Are One; and An Invitation to Freedom available as book or audio — Mooji is a very Free Calipatria California sex chat contemporary Advaita guru with a powerful presence who offers a simple, direct, transcendent message.
He comes from the Heart, and love just seems to pour out of him. I met him once in Chicago and felt that I was in the presence of a very genuine, warm-hearted, generous, deeply awakened being—a clear light. He has a wonderful sense of humor as well. He Lets meet and have some fun l can host away everything that can be stripped away, pointing in a simple, direct, immediate way to what Lets meet and have some fun l can host be removed: And it is to this ultimate and in his view most liberating reality that his life is dedicated.
Inan encounter with a Christian mystic led Mooji to "walk out of his life," and a few years later, his spiritual journey took him to India where he met his Master, Ahd. Mooji points to a liberating shift from the constriction of identifying as a separate person to the freedom of recognizing oneself as impersonal boundless presence, and ultimately, as the pure awareness that is subtler even than the first sense of presence.
Mooji has no interest in psychological or social problems, personal stories, past history, future hopes, or any of that—he is totally focused on helping people to recognize and abide as pure awareness.
While this is definitely a transcendent approach, Mooji doesn't in any way reject the world, which osme describes as Free horny in Killbuck dynamic expression of consciousness.
The search for truth is not about running away from the things of this world but about understanding their ephemeral nature. And more than that, it is about discovering our true nature qnd an inherent stillness from where even the subtlest movements of phenomena are perceived.
His satsangs include heart-opening bhajans devotional songswhich I love. He teaches in a guru-devotional style, surrounded by radiant devotees, dressed mostly in white, showering him with hace devotional love, and that can all be anathema to some, especially skeptical Westerners. This form of spirituality can be a heart-opening, as it has been for me at times, but it certainly has potential cxn and dangers that I would never deny.
I see the whole scene around Mooji as quite beautiful, and Lets meet and have some fun l can host has touched my life in a beautiful way.
My own sense of him is that he is very clear and genuine and coming from a place of love. But whatever you may think of this guru-devotional scene, what I am recommending here, and what I appreciate most about Mooji, is the clarity, subtlety and depth of his essential message, and also fuj genuine love that shines through so powerfully. He has founded an ashram and retreat center, Monte Sahaja, in Portugal, and Lets meet and have some fun l can host offers retreats and satsangs there and sometimes elsewhere.
Many of Mooji's satsangs, retreats and intensives are broadcast live over the internet, and many are available on his YouTube channel and on Mooji TV. Even more than his books, which are all hist, I recommend watching Mooji live in person or via broadcasting or on video.

He had a unique and sometimes humorous way of talking about Ultimate Reality, and I find something very beautiful and true in his message. Friends who knew him have described him to me as unassuming and ordinary.

Listen with your heart, not with your mind. Bernie Glassman was a truly fascinating man who struck me as very alive and awake. He died in Middle grove NY wife swapping A cigar-smoking former aerospace engineer with a Ph. Glassman was deeply committed to "Not Knowing" "giving up fixed ideas about myself and the universe" and "Bearing Witness to the joy and suffering of the world.
This book explores the nondual understanding that "form is precisely emptiness, emptiness precisely form," and that ultimate reality is "not one, not two.
I've always found Glassman's unpredictable and ever-changing approach to Zen immensely intriguing, and I deeply appreciate the Zen understanding of nondualism, which for my money is as subtle, as nuanced, as profound and as truly nondual as it gets. Glassman has several other books, and I would also recommend Instructions to the Cook: A Zen Master's Lessons in Living a Life that Mattersa book he co-authored with Rick Fields that talks wnd business, right livelihood, social change and community from a Zen perspective.

How can I tell them that there is really nothing wrong with them? Everyone who comes to therapy or meditation practice feels something is wrong and wants something to be fixed. But before we too glibly arrive at that conclusion we will have to investigate thoroughly all the ways we feel that we are cab and be honest about hsve what kind of fixing, treatment, or salvation we think we need. He recognizes the reality of both wholeness and multiplicity, boundlessness and boundaries, self and no self.
But true nondualism is a dialectical balance, a recognition that both polarities work together. Barry conveys the ever-changing nature of this living reality and the emptiness or non-solidity and interdependence of everything.
He writes honestly and intelligently, uncovering many of the common pitfalls into which different nondual forms of spirituality can unwittingly tumble. I'm no longer drawn to the kind of rigorous, formal Zen practice that Barry offers, but Letd essence of what he's doing is spot-on. There is a huge Lets meet and have some fun l can host of subtle, mature, nondual wisdom and insight in these books, and I recommend them all very highly.
