Un-Poetic Truth ;-)

I am the formless one . . .

. . . yes, it's me again!

I see myself in the reflection of a life
I create.
But I am NOT there in that life I live,
I am here . . .

. . . Observing myself in the theater of life,
simultaneously on the stage
and yet
I find myself here in the audience.

How can this be, if there is only me?

I am in two places at once,

. . . seemingly . . .

'Who Am I?'

In my last Post we looked at the question:

'Who Am I? 

Let us continue with this theme.

If you've read my material before, then you'll know that it is my direct experience that what 'I', the reader of these words 'Am' . . is so Pure that it is easy to overlook it completely. I'm writing about your Awareness, your natural and original state of purity and innocence; Pure Awareness, which simply means awareness that is unadulterated by discursive thought*.

Together let us take a look at these four statements made in the language of the first person:

1. I, the reader, am Pure Awareness.
2. Only Pure Awareness is Real.
3. Pure Awareness is already Perfect.
4. Pure Awareness is the solution.

1. I, the reader, am Pure Awareness. 

It is 'I', Pure Awareness, who is Aware of the impurity, which is discursive thought. Take away discursive thought and what is left?

'Pure Awareness.'

2. Only Pure Awareness is real.

Awareness is of the moment, here and now. If I am unaware of thinking now, then I am lost in thought, not Aware!

Which am I?

3.Pure Awareness is already Perfect.

You can't add anything to it to make it more Pure!

Pure Awareness + Discursive Thought = Imperfection.

What is the state that is perfect?

Awareness - Discursive Thought = Pure or Perfect Awareness!

4. Pure Awareness is The Solution.

What Solution? The solution to what?

Your Pure Awareness is the natural and original state out of which The Solution to your life unfolds. And that means that this state, being perfect or pure is the miracle of life.

All you have to do is, 
quite literally,  
and your life will unfold  
Nothing more is required, 

do you see?

Realization**, or the direct experience, of this perfect or pure state is The Solution; and it means no more problematic living or psychological and emotional unhappiness, ever.

It sounds too good to be true of course, but the fact is that all problems have a source or root cause. If you dig out the roots of your problems, well, your life becomes perfect because the weeds will no longer be able to grow!

Let me explain:

You have gathered a past, it is your conditioning, it contains everything you've experienced in your life up to this moment since birth. That gathering of past experiences also includes all your impressions of life, and they have created a home within your psyche. That home has an identifiable name; the sub-conscious mind.

All those impressions including your discursive thoughts and emotions reside there in your sub-conscious to form your personality, the person you think you are. That is your mistaken identity; personality, your conditioned past; the person you presently think you are is simply your conditioned past, not your reality.

You are not the person you think you are.

That's right, you are not the personality, not the person you've always mistakenly identified with; you are not that conditioned mix of attitudes, beliefs, opinions, fears, doubts and worries. That is not You.

Who Am 'I' Then if I am NOT A Person? 

By now you should know the answer to that question, yes?

'I' Am Pure Awareness.


*Discursive thought can be described as thought with a will of its own, such as aimless and problematic thinking; circling thoughts, inner conversations, imaginings. It also includes all your emotional fears, doubts and worries etc.

** Realization is 'Direct Experience'. When you realized that water is wet it was because you experienced 'water is wet'. Real-i-zation is also the direct experience of the real 'I', which can be found within the word realization. Who you really are, the 'real I', is the experiencer.

An Autumnal Stroll . . .

It Was Just Another Day,
another normal day in my life and 

I was out on foot, doing a few errands, nothing special, just simple things like checking if my car was still 'safe', parked as it was, a little distance from home. It's best not to ask why; it was by the way, you know, safe, which I had expected, because:

'What you acknowledge is what you get!'

  Well, that's my experience anyway.

I also had a letter to pop through the door of a local resident, living in an adjacent road. Well the post man had obviously dropped the letter whilst on his rounds, and my partner Nicola had found it you see, so I had the simple task of delivering it . . .

. . . but then, on my way home I found myself taking a detour, walking along the river Stort, here in Hertfordshire, and I spontaneously made my way into the surrounding countryside. About thirty minutes into my walk I paused to rest on a fallen branch of a tree on the path that runs parallel with the river, where I watched some Mallards and Coots frolicking . . . whilst fish broke the surface of the water, sending ripples out towards the river bank.

As I sat there in the autumnal silence of the countryside,
my mind fell perfectly still.
I took in the fresh air, whilst observing the bright sunshine, blue skies
with occasional white clouds floating by,
listening to bird song;

. . . and then it happened . . .

I could feel the sensational life energy vibrating within me,
which isn't unusual,
I'm used to that
but that energy was now one with the fallen tree I was resting on.

My hands were facing palms down onto the hard wood . . . but all I could feel through my body and down into the tree was a vibration, an energy if you will, and it was getting stronger. I closed my eyes and focused on the sensation within my vibrational-body as it seemed to merge more and more with not only the tree, but the ground my feet were resting on.

I was one with the energy of that fallen tree
One with the earth I stood on.
It was a
Sensational Experience.

I opened my eyes, I could feel this state of  
running throughout my entire

And although I could see diversity all around me,
I mean diversity of
Physical Forms,
There was only
Within Me.

After a few minutes, my mind at peace and feeling refreshed, I strolled home.


I used the word sensational deliberately.
The experience was a sensation that reverberated right through my physical body.
It was not
an emotional feeling,
it was
a sensational feeling.
And this 
feels totally different to any
physical vibration,
emotional feeling
that one would
be able to relate to in
everyday life.

As a man of
I have to tell you that 
I am one with this sensation in my life,
I feel this
life energy

vibration of life
as the background to my whole life,
is what
I Am.

This sensational-vibrational life energy,
which reverberates within and through each of us,
is the
Presence of Being
The Eternal Now Moment.
