A video journal about my particular journey through life.
Let it be insightful for you, if it feels right.
In no separation every yield makes way for a push

Top Down Journalism has Failed
Truth is never spoon fed, but only discovered. Dialogue journalism as in a round table discussion, without moderation or manicuring.

Seekers have some Idea What's Coming
But the surprise is that we really don't know.

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?
Being "Totally Received" by Vishrant
There is a very obvious feeling in being received by another. Yes, there are boundries there, but in this receiving they do not get broken nor challenged. Even if they get crossed (whatever boundries I am talking about) they don't ring an alarm.
Perhaps I thought that I could guide this conversation in another way. You can see how it starts slower than usual. Guide it by not guiding it. Just some sillyness coming into play. (Lighting is weird because Vishrant was darkly lit so I made myself too light.)

Bhashkar Perinchery in Chicago Oct 2011
Reminding us that time and the seasons, along with many other perceptions are only of the planet earth. In the eternity of deep space what time is there or what movement exists without the reference of our revolving planet? How is it that what we know so surely, is only grounded on this earth?
David Rivers, Yoga of Service, act on it
Let your experience of awareness inform your daily living. That is what I have been wanting to say. Too many seem to say let your experience of awareness substitute for your daily living. Vast testimony shares that would be a very dry and dead life.
On the question of what practice to follow, David says "Jump to enlightened living." Why not take the direct route?
You've seen some posts on Occupy Chicago, and many "conventional wisdom" issues are voiced and defended there. But do we really know that much about how our economy really works? And how it doesn't work? Generally we rest after faulting certain groups of people, like Corporate Greed. Is that all there is to is? The forces of good and evil? Surely, we watch too many movies and read too many bibles. I met with Rob on the streets of Occupy.
I want to know what is really going on (and please don't tell me that nothing is happening, it is all in my mind). If that's your response then let the next nuclear plant go into your back yard so that you can wake up and join the party.
Well, we said some amazing stuff. I was so full of questions and Rob had immediate intelligent answers. I can only apologize for talking almost 3 hours. Please dig into this one and see how you like it.
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?
Andreas Müller, This Simple Knowing
While the apparent 'I' is constantly looking for the next experience, the timeless wonder, this wonderful perfection, already is.
So if some chain of cause and effect appear, they must be arrising together. Not even together, but as different views of the same movement, the same arising.
David Ord on the Presence Process
Perhaps a belief in "Original Sin" and self worth issues have caused us to endlessly apologize for self. If that finally goes we are rid of the Pain Body. Then we just relax and enjoy life. We can move from a deficit based life into an asset based life.
