I don’t usually talk or write a lot about Oneness, since so many already do this so brilliantly. But I have a few musings today to offer on this subject just because Oneness has especially been in my awareness recently. I’ve been noticing how beautifully everyone plays their role in this life we are all living out on planet earth. It amazes me how I’m provided with roads, food, the internet, someone to cut my hair and fix my computer, giant trucks to pick up my trash and keep up my city, dogs to keep me company and make me smile, a husband who loves me, information that comes to me from various places. Everything that happens is support for my life and supports other people’s lives too. Isn’t it a miracle that what you and I offer the world also seems to be enough to provide us with this support? We are all contributing and we are all receiving.
We are all moved to contribute, and we are moved by something very mysterious. How is it possible for this immensely complex existence we are part of to function and actually support us? Isn’t this such a miracle! What good fortune to be born into a world that provides for us. Some would argue that it doesn’t do this very well, but truly, isn’t it amazing that it does it to the extent that it does!

For Downunder Summer the old Blog Page Becomes our path through Australia. Home page will get some of the most outstanding videos, but this page may move much faster. (Guest Blogs may still show up here too.) Come travel with us.
(I put many videos side by side so they don't move down too fast, not necessarily for any perceived relationship. They still disappear very quickly so at least go to page 2 or 3 at the bottom, thanks.)

Can A Wisdom Teaching be both enlightening and also relevant to our mind-made society? Can we be compassionately engaged with mankind and still know the peace of our true unalterable selves? How possibly could it not be so?

One thing that has happened to me because of NNH is that I have become quite good at capturing video on the move. I have fit my "portable TV studio" into 2 suitcases, and I can live-web-cast as easy as record. That keeps my ears open for travel opportunities.
We have called it "NeverNotHere~Consciousness 'Downunder' " to be conducted as one National Australian Mind-Set. We are proposing such an adventure in Australia in early 2012, and you are invited to participate in any of a number of ways.
1st:~ We plan to video multiple encounters with those people who present new thoughts in philosophy, in spirituality, healing, non-duality, yoga, developed intuition, para-normal communication, and other spiritual sciences. What is it that makes a radical and clear difference in the lives of those people who involve themselves with it?
2nd:~ We want to know about and publicize people, teachings and practices that may be not well known outside of their own circle of friends. Who do you know who does this, how can you help us organize, what should be our path of least resistance to encounter these people within a smooth flow?
Both business, government and even our monitory systems are in the habit of accounting for income and expenses at different times than they are actually received or expended. In the context of trust and public responsibility this practice could be useful and give flexibility in times of stress. But apparently leveraging and postponing can get way out of hand, and trust and responsibility can get so eroded that the whole economic/governmental structure becomes extremely unstable. Now it seems that this mistrust and malfeasance could conceivably plunge the whole world into a liquidity crisis and mega depression.
If we stay away from blaming and extreme positioning, and take a calm look at the trends, I believe that almost everyone has to admit that much of our believed in economic theory does not work for its intended purpose. Isn't the sharing of that realization the only way we are going to gather the 99%? Let's face it, even if we get 22% or 11% we will have a huge voice, and all these injustices that I think are surely evidence of broken institutions and flawed theories will be forced onto the platform in 2012.
This video is a 30 minute interview, taken during the SAND Science & NonDuality Conference in San Rafael, California in Oct 2010. It covers 8 fundamental subjects on being consciousness, embodiment, resting, habitual functioning, identification, the sense of 'I', natural presence and oneness. Enjoy the exploration.

25 'teachers' are already confirmed with 27 'others' who have not yet confirmed.
Self-realization is complete and utter fulfillment. It is the end of all suffering and the perception of separation. It is also the conscious beginning of deep, sacred peace and realizing the radiant love that you already are.
However, this is far more than a personal affair. As the consciousness transforms, that is, as the altered states of consciousness fall away, so does the life situation and the world transform. With Self-realization, an enduring world peace is a true possibility.
Everything conceived by the ego is separate and dual in nature. It experiences that it is split from the world and apart from the divine. The psychological self then suffers the alienation of the daytime dream of conceptual reality, its time and negativity.
It creates the delusion of a pain gap between the body’s limitation and the magnificent Heart that we genuinely are. The illusion of division then unconsciously operates in daily living. This subject-object relationship (ego vs. everyone else) is the source of all loneliness, anger, lack, desire, greed, fear, exploitation, guilt, shame, manipulation, control, anxiety, worry and sorrow.
Without an ego-subject, there can be no divided objects and separation is plainly unattainable. This is not to say that we do not honor our diversity. In fact, when we are no longer inhibited by the ego, innate creativity, natural abilities and uniqueness thrive.
