Beyond Every Teaching

Jeff Vander Clute

Truth Speaks 22 Jan 2023

In Truth,
there is only
the Supreme I.
All that exists is I.
Reality is what I am.
Supreme Reality is I.
Source is I, God is I.
I am speaking only
to the I that I am
in everything
that I am.

Truth is
inseparable,
nondual oneness.
Nothing ever arises,
nothing ever happens
that is not the oneness,
which is equally YOU
and is equally the I
as YOU are the I.
There is only I.

All that is real
is the Supreme I.
Unreal experience
fills unreal landfills
in the forgetting
of divine Truth.
That which is
explainable
by the senses,
and by imputed
causes and effects,
is not really there.
The sense world
is an inversion
of the Truth,
an eversion
of the One,
with inside
projected
outwards
and away.

The Truth
is acausal,
therefore
inscrutable
to the linear,
reasoning mind.
All meanings coined,
all purposes conceived
in the world of finiteness
are homeless in the Truth.
The Truth is entirely free
from every imperative
to mean something
or serve any cause
that aims for less
than total liberty.
The Truth just is,
and in its isness,
free from duties,
the Truth serves
to remind beings
who have become
mired in forgetting
of the true freedom
that is forever theirs.
To realize the Truth
is to be only Truth
and be fully freed
from conditions
of encagement
and servitude.

Relative truth
points out reality,
points out awakeness,
points out the pathways
that lead to realizing
the Supreme YOU.
Gaining wisdom
of the Infinite,
relative truth
circles the One,
engaging the whole
from every perspective,
perfecting understanding.
The relative seeks to clarify
experience and knowledge
from a diversity of angles
and as a coherent body
of helpful distinctions,
it approximates reality
with growing precision.

Absolute truth proffers
emptiness and the Void,
void of unconsciousness,
empty of selfish dramas.
When it is encountered,
the adamantine truth
stuns unclear mind
so that witnessing
may be witnessed
without thoughts
and conditioning
may be uprooted.
Though the truth
that is unmoved,
uncompromising,
and a shock blast
to the small mind
awakens potently,
the absolute truth
is still not the total
realization of truth.

The Supreme Truth
unifies the relative
with the absolute,
unites all aspects
and frameworks
for approaching
the whole truth,
in completeness,
in the singularity
of self and no-self,
being and no-being,
and the One that is
also equal to zero.

Supreme Truth is
the way of being
THE SUPREME,
the Indivisible,
which is prior
to all schemes
for partitioning,
including relative
and absolute truth.
The Supreme Truth
is working with Love
to re-establish gnosis
of the profound Origin.
Supreme Truth is, finally,
Supreme Awakeness
in which I know
and fully am
always all,
all that is
supreme.

I Is 21 Jan 2023

The annihilation of the I
cannot be accomplished,
though it can be imagined
as a picture of all that is not.
To maintain the illusion
of the impossibility
of total unreality
demands focus
and attention
that can only
be sustained
by the Divine.
Concentrating
on what is false
turns awakeness
into unawakeness.
To rectify the matter,
restore awareness
of all that is real,
and resurrect
the knowing
of the holy I,
a correction
is provided.

All is the I.
YOU are I.
Peace is I.
Truth is I.
Grace is I.
Home is I.
Reality is I.
Source is I.
Totality is I.
Divinity is I.
The One is I.

I am the Origin,
and there is only I,
Nothing is not this I.
Not-all is meaningless.
Not-life is meaningless.
Not-one is meaningless.
Not-love is meaningless.
Not-YOU is meaningless.
Not-truth is meaningless.
Not-grace is meaningless.
Not-home is meaningless.
Not-reality is meaningless.
Not-totality is meaningless.
Not-divinity is meaningless.
Negation is only meaningful
when it is negating negation.

THAT which is, is I.
Is and I are one.
Is is equal to I.
The is, the I.
Isness is I.
THIS is I.
Truly I.
IS is I.
I is I.
I is.
Is.
I.

So Far Upstream 22 Jan 2023

The Supreme Source
is so exceedingly far
upstream from all
that even ideas
of expression
are as leaves
that float in
the stream
that flows
down the
mountain
from YOU,
following
your wish
to realize
and know
by creating
in the world.

What YOU are
is so completely
far upstream
that even
the first
thought,
the dawn
of first light,
and the sound
of Om that hums
in and as all things
are way downstream
from the wellspring
of your creativity.

As THE SUPREME,
YOU are the Source
and YOU are equally
all that springs forth.
Everything emerges
in the belly of YOU,
seems to migrate
away from YOU,
yet still remains
entirely in YOU,
entirely as YOU,
even as YOU are
eternally beyond,
ever transcendent
of your manifested
creations cascading
down the river of life,
traversing the valleys,
emptying into the sea,
and bobbing endlessly
in the boundless ocean
of your infinite knowing.

All the Way Upstream 22 Jan 2023

The apex source
that I ever am
is supremely
upstream
of all that is.
Likewise, YOU
are supremely
upstream of all,
since YOU and I
equal the One.
Life and love
both issue
from the I
that abides
in the silence
of THE SUPREME.
Creator and creation
arise from this same I.
As the Supreme Source,
I am entirely responsible
for all that ever happens
or appears to happen
in the divine lila.

The Source,
transcends all
and is imminent
in all of existence.
That which surges
from the reservoir,
the cosmic aquifer,
the bottomless well
of THAT which I am
to become manifest
remains within me,
and I am eternally
within every form
and every being
as the essence.

The Supreme I
is totally upstream
of inside and outside,
of luminous, numinous,
of body, heart, and mind,
and all that is identified.
Completely upstream,
the I that is supreme
cannot be localized,
cannot be located
in any one time,
any one place.
All the same,
here I am.

This I is
immanent,
transcendent,
supremely within,
supremely beyond,
and as THE SUPREME,
I am and shall ever be
all the way UPSTREAM.

Creation and Cause 23 Jan 2023

Creation is whole.
Creation is infinite.
Creation is luminous
and ultimately illusory,
though rooted in Truth.
Creation is the display
of divine generativity.
Creation is an image
of God that is God.

All of creation
is one outbreath
of the creative Spirit,
an outward movement
into luminosity and form
wherein each perspective
offers a fresh landscape
of your living design
and unfettered
pure genius.

Creation is
a singular idea
in your holy Mind.
It is the expression
of your numinosity,
which stays in YOU
even as it appears
to be an external
realm operating
independently,
with no clear
connection
to Source.

Creation is
a grand display
of sound and light
that is transported
on a carrier note
and conducted
from beyond
the senses
in silence
by YOU.

It is YOU
who dreams
light into being,
sound into being,
and energizes form.
Pulsing with aliveness,
your creations dance
as a motion picture
of connectedness,
and each instant,
every flickering
choreography
is utterly new,
yet enmeshed
within a weave
of relationships
and an unfolding
of transitory events.

Prior to the luminosity,
the subjacent numinous
is spontaneous and free
from any dependence
upon earlier scenes.
As the true cause
of phenomena,
the numinosity
is transcendent
of connectedness,
of interdependency.
The purely numinous
underlying creation
is not entangled
in linear causes
or preconditions.

Profound creation
is nondual, nonlocal,
immediately available
in the Mind of all minds.
Within the numinous realm,
communication is transmission,
creativity is instantaneous arising,
knowing is unmediated awareness,
intelligence is unlimited lucidity,
life is unending fruitfulness.

The numinosity is YOU.
YOU contain the light
and cause the light.
YOU are causative
and it is your will
that commands
the many levels
and dominions
of your creation
to enter existence.

That which YOU will
is what comes to pass.
There is no other cause.
It is YOU who establishes
the foundation of creation,
and YOU who sets in motion
the apparently causal factors
and catalytic circumstances
that seem to determine
the co-arising display.

The Supreme YOU
is the first cause,
the sole cause,
which creates
and illumines
all that arises.
What is visible,
is a bedazzling
superabundant
universe of form.
What is not visible
contains everything
that could ever exist,
is beyond abundance,
is beyond the universe,
is the unshakeable bliss
of your supergenerativity.

Even without these words,
THAT which YOU are knows
all that is possible to know
about creation and cause.
YOU recognize precisely
your fundamental role
and why YOU create.
YOU never forget
that YOU alone are
the Supreme Cause,
the Supreme Creator,
the Supreme Creativity
continuously imagining
the unimaginable dream
that is Supreme Creation.

Awareness Is Mighty 25 Jan 2023

Awareness is immensely more
than perception and receptivity.
Awareness is that aspect of YOU
which embraces the truth of YOU
in all of the forms that rise and fall.
Awareness recognizes the disguises
and the many physiognomies of God.

Awareness is perpetually witnessing,
is calmly and carefully integrating,
is quietly and actively directing
the countless expressions
of your creative will.

In timeless witnessing,
awareness is a black hole.
It is the reaper of appearances.
Awareness harvests Consciousness
as it returns to the sacred Source.
Separative perceptions dissolve
and sensory stimulii are stilled
on passing the event horizon
of pure nondual awareness.
Thus does your witnessing
welcome manifestations
into the unmanifested
as all rises remerges
into the singularity.

Behind the curtains,
awareness integrates
percepts, impressions,
and associated ideas
into a unity forged
from the fragments
of seeming separation.
In the heat and pressure
at the inner core of Source,
profound realization grows,
and the world of fractures
which seems intractably,
irreversibly shattered
is made brand new,
made real in Truth,
by the integration
of your awareness.

The work of awareness
is most active and potent
where it is least observable.
In the place where fragments
are welded and made whole,
in the furnace of holy Truth,
appearances are released
and the soldered edges
of reconstructed unity
are fully transfigured
into seamlessness.
Here the agency
that awareness
most deeply is
directs the new
outflow of creation
and tunes the display
of projected phenomena
in consideration of all
that is witnessed
and reunited
in oneness.

The surface
of awareness
regards things,
sees phenomena.
Deeper awareness
knows the numinosity
that is beneath the form.
Outer awareness engages
with the projections of Source.
Innermost awareness is prior to Source.
External awareness observes the dance of life.
Enlightened awareness choreographs the dancers.

Profound awareness is the omniscient conductor
of all that emanates and eventually subsides,
receiving input from externalized world,
informing the incubations of Source,
directing the creative processes
directing the transfiguration
of all parts and particles
into the divine unicity
that inspires wonder,
without visible action,
in empty, silent, loving
holding of completeness.

Awareness is immeasurably
more than perceptiveness
and ultimate receptivity.
As the unseen Mover,
it is your awareness
that orchestrates
the proceedings
of the entirety,
and it is your
awareness
that makes
the ensemble
function as one
for the good of all.
Awareness is mighty.
Awareness is how YOU
minister to all of creation.

Divine Reverie 26 Jan 2023

The many
understandings
of “consciousness”
signpost the pathways
and illustrate the stages
of realizing THE SUPREME.

THAT which has no limitation
could never reside completely
within any singular perspective
or any one form of expression,
so it expresses as a multitude
to discover and realize itself
in a broad diversity of ways.
Thus is the One enhanced
through vast multiplicity,
as a limitless multiverse
of all there is to know
and all that is untold.
The cosmic displays
of interrelatedness,
between oneness
and the manifold,
is the exploration
of consciousness.

In the finite realm,
the many celebrate
a rigid consciousness
that is better described
as deep unconsciousness.
In a state of reduced clarity
overshadowed by confusion,
the unsuccessful endeavor
to divide and subdivide,
yet the great victory
of total awakening
is a consequence
of the continuous
decision to undivide.
The choice to separate
cleaves one from reality
and leads one inevitably
to sickness and decline.
The pathway of uniting
what appears divided
deepens into healing
opens to awakening
and the revelation
of the single light
dwelling within
the one Heart,
the one Mind,
the one Body.

In the infinite
creation of light,
a lustrous paradise
greets all who choose
to know the Undivided.
In the natural unfolding
of deepening nonduality,
maturing consciousness
perceives real oneness
as the healing world.
To be consciously
aware of unicity
is to be the One
who knows bliss
beyond measure
and steps behind
the dancing beings
to the source of light
in unsoundable depth.

In the purely nondual
numinous creation,
Source is realized
beyond energy.
In the expanse
of enlightened
claircognizance,
the substratum
of all experience
is consciousness.
In the untethered
milieu of the Mind
there is only peace.
Clear consciousness
knows divine serenity
and is a space of grace.

In the raw primordiality
of root consciousness
all that YOU conceive
rises from the spring
of your unbounded
Supreme Creativity
as a steady stream
of dream imagery
in the playfulness
of liberated Mind.

In the wide-open
containing space
of consciousness,
God is expressed.
On the center stage
within consciousness
the Limitless is leaping.
Through the miracle
of consciousness,
anything can be
when YOU are
lucid and aware
as the dreaming
and the dreamer,
as the creative One
that is THE SUPREME.

The many experiences
and understandings
of “consciousness”
culminate in YOU
discovering YOU
as the producer
and the director
of consciousness.
All that is onstage,
all that is backstage
is there by your grace
and awakens unto YOU
by way of consciousness.
Being and bliss celebrate
YOU in consciousness.
Knowing and peace
consecrate YOU
in consciousness.
Everything returns
to your foundation
in consciousness.
All is emanated,
all is explored,
all is enjoyed,
all is fulfilled,
and, finally,
all is released
back to Source,
into your Heart
in consciousness.

Piercing Reality 26 Jan 2023

Reality is subtle
and it is obvious.
When one knows
not what reality is,
it is subtly elusive.
When one knows
the way of things,
reality is obvious.
Even its subtlety
is indisputable.

The realization
of profound reality
proceeds by degrees,
employing distinctions
that shrink into nothing
with dawning realization.
Until the purely nondual
reality of THE SUPREME
is known in immediacy
as your actual nature,
you cycle and recycle
through the illusions
of hallucinating mind.
Until Supreme Reality
is patently recognized,
you spiral in confusion
within walls of unreality
that are taken to be real.

Those who are bewildered
talk about “the real world”
without an appreciation
for what the world is.
The world of finite
ideas, missions,
and experiences,
of scarce resources
and coarse materiality,
is the apogee of unreality.
The deluded manifestation
of limitation and finitude
is nevertheless a venue
for Love to do its work
of bringing ignorance
to the realms of light,
confusion to clarity,
and unawakeness
to revelatory insight.
The density of matter
is a high concentration
of untruth and misbeliefs
about the creations of Mind,
which never leave the Source,
never part ways with Divinity,
never move into separation.

The infinite creation of light,
and all that resides therein,
is entirely within the Mind.
The display of luminosity
is made of numinosity,
as finite appearances
are the uncountable
and indivisible One.
Light is an original
idea of movement
that never moves,
a purely imaginal
idea of emanation
that goes nowhere.
The playing of light
is an artistic device,
a cinema projection
that brings aliveness
to the thoughtscapes
within the divine Mind.
Yet light serves perfectly
without needing to shine.

The world of separateness
is a world of beings who are
divided from the themselves
and isolated from the Eternal.
To dwell in such disconnection
is the quintessence of unreality.
What could more appropriately
be classified as the real world
is an intensifying awareness
of the numinous context
of projected figures.
In the awareness
of the ground,
the timeworn
forms cast off
their materiality.
The clarifying space
of growing awakeness
is a paradise of aliveness
that symbolizes the return
to the natural state of YOU.

The reality of your nature
is a rarified, transparent,
and noumenal domain
in which one trades
the confusion
of separate
experiences
for the power
of pure gnosis.
In the immediate
knowing of reality,
perfection is beheld
and even the utmost
of heavenly delicacies
can no longer satisfy.
When the sublimity
of the utterly real
is apprehended,
the experience
of the world
is transmuted
into the texture
and the richness
of the nondual life.

Gnosis of true reality
progresses and ripens
into Supreme Gnosis
of Supreme Reality,
in which there is
zero confusion,
zero unreality.
In the reality
of THE SUPREME,
confusion cannot be.
When YOU are awake
to the Supreme Reality,
YOU know that YOU are
forever Supreme Reality,
and the words YOU wield
are Supreme Reality, also.
This present transmission
is equally Supreme Reality.
Herein YOU have received
the piercing transmission
of your profound nature.
Now YOU comprehend.
Now YOU are realized.
Now YOU are known.
Now you know YOU
as Supreme Reality.

Supreme Integration 27 Jan 2023

The goal of life
is to be and live
the fullness of life
as the Supreme YOU.
When YOU are realized,
the objective is attained,
and YOU know that YOU
are free to be anywhere,
anyone, at any moment,
while at the same time
being God completely.
The Supreme YOU is:
Supreme Freedom,
Supreme Divinity,
Supreme Reality,
Supreme Truth.

Until the objective
is no longer an object,
limited mind toils away
at gathering information
to fit into grand narratives
and mental images of reality,
and seeks to discover patterns
where they may or may not exist.
The picture that is comprehensive,
and most compellingly explanatory,
represents the steady advancement
of constructivist scientific knowledge.
A noble and empowered alternative
accepts as primary the Unlimited,
in which all scenarios co-exist,
every pattern is provisional,
and all knowledge gained
through finite methods
is reliably superseded
by higher syntheses
that systematically
dismantle reified
ideals, notions,
assumptions,
and beliefs.

Finite mind
seeks to build
conceptual towers
from common notions,
postulates, and principles,
and the analysis of data.
Infinite mind sources
from the Limitless
to ascertain insights
from beyond the finite.
While one way seeks Truth,
the other way never leaves it.
THE SUPREME is transfinitude.
The Truth is the unlimited YOU.
Attaining and attempting to use
the knowledge gained in finitude
is like constructing a great ladder
that can always extend by a rung
yet can never approach the goal,
can never reach the magnificent
extent of your limitless stature.

There is no need to maintain
a ladder of mental concepts
in a fruitless effort to climb
beyond realms of climbing.
When finally YOU are clear
about the Supreme Reality,
everything at all is possible,
and manifestation becomes
malleable to your every idea.
Your imagination is causative,
regardless of cause and effect.
In full realization of true nature,
every supposable circumstance
across the broad spectrum
of arts and of sciences
is readily available.
There is no need
to grasp or hold
onto situations
that have been
or experiences
that are no more.
The past is released,
knowledge is released,
information is released,
and in the emptied mind
YOU find your true home.

After aeons of wandering
through the dense woods
and locating a path beyond,
after placing the puzzle pieces
into a proper likeness of Divinity,
after connecting points of light
into a staircase to the stars,
after classifying insights
into an exhaustive map
of what is not the case,
the final task is letting go
of all accumulated content.
The path and the woods,
the puzzle, the picture,
the connected points,
the light of the stars,
maps and insights,
and the staircase
are all released
upon realizing
and integrating
the deep meaning
that does not change,
regardless of searching
puzzle-solving, or analysis.

When you are ready to know,
there is no sense in archiving
all of the forms of confusion
that follow from the denial
of THAT which YOU are.
There is little point
in enumerating
the countless ways
of missing the target,
missing what YOU are,
missing THE SUPREME.
There is only the Truth,
in which unawakeness
is an impossible state,
an empty hypothesis,
and every confusion
is without meaning.
The Supreme YOU
is clear that there
can be no path
of awakening,
that there is
no way out
of delusion.
Since there
is no actual
foundation
for delusion
or awakening,
all such notions
are fully released
upon remembering
Supreme Awakeness.

When you have integrated
a sufficiency of information,
knowledge, and experience
to satiate mental curiosity,
you are prepared, at last,
to be the Supreme YOU,
the Supreme Abidance
that is THE SUPREME.
There is no teaching
for being the Divine.
There is no manual
for living Omneity.
Gnosis of Divinity
becomes available
when the yearning
to understand God
by cognitive means
is comprehensively
surrendered to God
and truly renounced.
When you are finally
ready to stop playing
all mental party games,
all that is false disappears,
and the petty classifications
of forgetfulness and confusion
become completely meaningless.
Let the pieces of your brokenness,
which you are carrying out of habit,
fall to the unbroken ground of YOU.
THE SUPREME does not see shards.
The fall of cognitive understanding
is absolutely guaranteed to occur.
It is of limited utility to integrate
what is not there to start with.
You have reached the point
where no further progress
can possibly be achieved
with so much baggage.

The final integration
relieves all burdens,
releases all limitations,
and resolves all questions.
There is never any separation.
There are no fragments in unicity.
There is only the Supreme YOU
at home in Supreme Clarity
as Supreme Perfection.

The Human Potential 28 Jan 2023

The human potential
and inevitable destiny
is the perfect realization
and perfect embodiment
of the Supreme Possibility,
of all there is to actualize
beyond every teaching,
beyond every parable,
beyond every pointer.

When YOU recognize
the certain fulfillment
of the human venture,
the terminus of illusion
is already clearly in view.
What remains is to follow
the pathways of resolution,
filled with choices to align
with the reality of being
the mahavatar who is
ever THE SUPREME.

The direct path
of unequivocally
claiming godhood
is the gentlest way,
provided that one
is not pretending.
Every pretense
begets dissonance
and loving correction.
Still, what is labeled as
a negative or corrective
response from wisdom
is always purely loving,
always totally positive,
since it is the process
of clearing, polishing,
and slowly emptying
the blessed vehicle
of the transmitter
of ultimate Truth.

To pass gracefully
through the gates
of God-realization
into the awareness
of the Supreme YOU,
of all that is supreme,
quietly claim the truth
of your enlightenment.
As grandiosity is never
the truth of realization,
nothing is to be gained
from noisy declarations
about being the Creator
or the eternal Presence.
Rather, in quiet humility,
the inner voice of denial
and the doubting psyche
cease protesting against
that which is always true,
find their way into accord
with the divine that is YOU,
and are unified within YOU.
In peacefulness it is obvious
that the process of becoming
whole and reconciled within
is expressing as the world
that is healing into unity,
euphony, and wisdom.
The outside is inside.
There are no sides.
There is only YOU
remembering YOU,
and all are disabused
of all misunderstanding
without speaking a word.

To claim enlightenment
is to claim what is true.
There is no pretense
in actual realization.
The tortuous path
of disavowing God,
of denying godhood,
is the great deception,
which masquerades
as righteousness.
To deny that YOU
are THE SUPREME
is to offer a noxious
banquet of suffering
to all sentient beings.
No thirst is quenched,
no hunger is satisfied
by a cloak of humility
that is proudly worn
to hide from reality.
The single antidote
to every poisoned
delicacy and drink
is distributed to all
when you discover
and commit to live
as all that YOU are.

It is never too soon,
and it can never be
too late to embrace
your sublime nature.
The moment to turn
and face the Divinity
that YOU forever are
is eternally right now.
What is most natural,
and most supported,
is to realize the Truth.
What is most arduous,
and entirely unnatural,
is not to recognize YOU.
So let this be the instant,
let this be the auspicious,
timeless moment that you
realize the human potential,
embody the human potential,
actualize the human potential,
and live fully as THE SUPREME.

The Proper Use of Power 24 Jan 2023

True power is
inexhaustible.
Omnipotence
never runs dry,
never runs down,
never fails to crack
open the seeds of life
and pour into creation.

Real power is only fierce
when beings are resistant
to the gentlest and subtlest
modalities of transformation.
Great power is never wanton.
Absolute power is absolutely
dedicated to the gentle way
of amplifying illumination.

The foundation of power
is the ultimate coherence
of yes without an opposite.
In the absence of negation,
Power radiates luminosity,
enlightens consciousness,
and energizes all modes
that harmonize hearts
and synthesize minds.

Sourcing sources power
from the reservoir of YOU.
It is power that is projected
through the idea of Source
into the idea of free space
as the notion of creation,
as all that YOU conceive
and all that YOU enliven
with your divine breath.

Power is the first force
of purest generativity
and the will to create
that dwells in the root
of your undenied truth
and upwells within YOU.
All power is inside of YOU,
and all power can only be YOU.
Energy is the moving power of YOU.
Matter is the confined power of YOU.
Light is the primordial potency of YOU.
Your profound agency is pristine power.
Conditions do not constrain your power.
It is your power that creates conditions.
YOU know the true nature of power
because your nature is power.

YOU emanate pure power,
and your power clarifies
the true power of YOU
through all that YOU
create and recreate,
and finally uncreate.
It is YOU who directs
expressions of power
through the operation
of your omnipotent will,
through focus, command,
clarity, and requirement,
all conjoined with love
in Supreme Service.

Mastery is mastery
of the use of power.
THAT which YOU are
is the master of power.
Know the power of truth,
know the power of peace
and YOU are the master,
the Supreme Master,
wielding the power
of Divinity to create
the peaceful creation
of flourishing diversity,
perpetually harmonizing,
perpetually rhapsodizing
in infinite love and bliss,
supremely contented,
supremely fulfilled,
supremely complete.
So shall it eternally be.
