There truly is nothing else, unless Consciousness identifying itself with a body: with its name and form as the Ego considers itself the doer of its actions.
That is the beginning of the mechanism of maya — the original sin. The Basic Problems of the Spiritual Seeker In the simplest, barest terms, the real problem of the spiritual seeker is that, as a seeker, his very existence is nothing but an apparent existence as sentience — nothing more. Start your free 30 days. There is only pure experience only NOW. It does not accept or reject the teachings of spiritual path or process but it will expose, without compromise, the singular and fundamental misconception that drives the belief that there is something called a seeker that needs to find something else called enlightenment.
The Open Secret does not compromise with the needs and expectations of the seeker. Neither does it attempt to attract or please with promises of an easy and pleasant experience of liberation. Who could promise that, and who would experience it? Because the idea of individual free will and choice is seen as an illusory dream, there is no agenda or intention to help or change individuality.
As far as the apparent individual is concerned, there is nothing for sale here. A fascinating character who was known by some as an anti-guru and a spiritual terrorist. He insisted that the body and its actions are already perfect, and he considered attempts to change or mould the body or its actions as pure and simple violence. The psyche or self or mind, an entity which he denied as having any being, is composed of nothing but the 'demand' to bring about change in the world, in itself, or in both.

The gradual and at times, painful process of recognising that the lack of self, which she experienced from a very young age, is her true state and not something anomalous that needed to be fixed. Recognising Who You Are, is the end of overlooking that which has never been anywhere but right here. The end of pretending to know or trying to know. This is absolute Not-Knowing. Forever falling in absolute insecurity.
This is what I am. I am what You are. Life itself. Unmani points to the end of the spiritual search. Actually finding what you have been looking for.
Finding that it has never been anywhere but right here. Realising the paradox of Life. In April the process of seeking ended when enlightenment happened through the body-mind mechanism called Wayne.

Art says: "Art Ticknor was never alive, something broke the identification with the observer, there was no regret in seeing the sense of separate self go. I would have gladly stayed in that blackness, but instead I was brought back into a world I could no longer view in the same way. After 20 years he hit a wall as a seeker and then met the teacher Richard Rose whom he studied with for 5 years.
It was after a weekend with Douglas Harding that a breakthrough finally happened. Spiritual Human Evolution is the term coined by Bernie Prior to describe evolution. It is the ongoing work of humanity, individually and collectively; the ongoing work of the universe; the ongoing work to live on the edge, to make life spiritually, consciously, abundantly manifest.
Por Ramesh S. Balsekar
The next stage in human evolution is the crossover from egoic individuation, expressing as separation, to the direct experience of pure Being and its conscious manifestation as pure Becoming. This is the truth that we are all the co-creators of universal form. We are actually responsible for the universe appearing as all human life. Globally, we have not wanted to take responsibility for that. Now that time has come. He says: "I was taken beyond myself into the place of no concern.
The years of wondering, of alternating between pleasure and misery came to an end along with the searching and longing it generated. I saw that in all that time I had never really moved; rather I simply woke up. Byron Katie is the creator of 'The Work'.

She disconnected from all her belief structures and attachments till she awakened one day, and realized that she had always been in Heaven.

In , while in the middle of a Church Service in his monastery in Montreal, Francis suddenly experienced what he has come to call, "a radical perceptual shift in consciousness", in which he discovered the ever present presence of spacious, pure awareness. He came to see that this awareness is actually the unchanging essence of who he really is and always has been; the Supreme Self. He also came to see simultaneously, that this vast, infinite sense of presence at the center of his being and at the center of the being of everyone else on the planet is actually not at all separate from the presence of God, which he had been looking for during his many years as a monk and spiritual seeker.
