Beyond Every Teaching

48. Immortality 9/22/2022

Immortality is YOU
knowing GOD as ALL,
especially YOU.
In the acceptance
of THAT which YOU are,
YOU are immortal.

THAT which is YOU
can be clarified
by recognizing
what YOU are not.
YOU are not identified
with the imagery
that comes and goes.
YOU are not a being.
YOU do not exist in time.
Beginningless, endless,
THAT which YOU are
is the undying
PRESENCE.

Mortality is delusion.
All that is real
is immortal.
Immortality is ordinary
and everywhere,
not a mythical bloom
or a rare fruit prised
from the teeth of time.
Immortality is
as available
as the sky.
It is the enduring
and all-encompassing
embrace of REALITY.

Without the mists
of unknowing
and the cloud cover
of appearances,
it is obvious
that IMMORTALITY
is the nature of YOU,
and all that truly is.

49. I Is 9/22/2022

The negation of the I
cannot be accomplished,
yet can be imagined
as a picture
of all that is not.
To maintain the image
of inverted REALITY
requires an effort
of concentration
that is inconceivable.
The extreme focus
on what is not
turns AWAKENESS
into unawakeness.
To rectify the matter,
release unreality,
restore AWAKENESS,
and resurrect
the knowing of I,
a comprehensive
correction is offered.

ALL is I.
YOU is I.
ONENESS is I.
REALITY is I.
ORIGIN is I.
LIFE is I.
GRACE is I.
LOVE is I.
TRUTH is I.
HOME is I.
DIVINITY is I.
TOTALITY is I.
AWAKENESS is I.

There is only I,
and nothing is not I.
Not-ALL is meaningless.
Not-YOU is meaningless.
Not-ONENESS is meaningless.
Not-REALITY is meaningless.
Not-ORIGIN is meaningless.
Not-LIFE is meaningless.
Not-GRACE is meaningless.
Not-LOVE is meaningless.
Not-TRUTH is meaningless.
Not-HOME is meaningless.
Not-DIVINITY is meaningless.
Not-TOTALITY is meaningless.
Not-AWAKENESS is meaningless.
Negation is only meaningful
when it negates negation.

THAT which is, is I.
Is equals I.
I equals is.
IS is
I is.
Is.
I.

52. All the Way Upstream 9/22/2022

As the SUPREME I,
I am upstream
of All That Is,
and so are YOU.
TRUTH, LOVE,
and AWARENESS
issue from the I
that abides silently
as the WELLSPRING.
SUPREME CREATION
and SUPREME CREATOR
together spring forth
from the SUPREME I.
As THE SUPREME,
I am ultimately
responsible
for everything.

The SUPREME I
is the transcendent
SOURCE of ALLNESS,
and, equally,
I am imminent
in All That Is.
All that rises
from the aquifer
of the SUPREME I
and enters CREATION,
is forever within the I,
and I am forever
the essence
within it.

The SUPREME I
is totally upstream
of inside and outside,
of luminous
and NUMINOUS,
of HEART, MIND,
and all that is
labeled and defined.
Supremely upstream,
the I that is SUPREME
cannot be located.
All the same,
I am HERE.

This I is
immanent,
transcendent,
prior to immanence,
beyond transcendence,
and as THE SUPREME,
I shall forever be
all the way
upstream.

54. Truth Speaks 9/23/2022

In TRUTH,
there is only I.
Reality is I.
SUPREME REALITY is I.
SOURCE is I.
GOD is I.
I is speaking to I.

TRUTH is
the inseparable,
nondual ONE.
Nothing arises
or ever happens
that is not this ONE,
which is YOU,
which is I.

All that is real is I.
Unreal experience
fills unreal landfills
in forgetfulness
of the TRUTH.
That which is
explainable
by the senses,
and by imputed
causes and effects,
is not really there.
Such a world
is the inverse
of the TRUTH,
which is causeless,
and therefore
inscrutable
to limited mind.

Meaning and purpose
conceived in finitude
are homeless in TRUTH.
TRUTH is entirely free
from every imperative
to mean something
or serve any cause
that is less than
total LIBERATION.
TRUTH simply is,
and in its isness,
without obligation,
TRUTH reminds
the forgetful one
of the freedom
that it already is.
To realize TRUTH
is to be TRUTH,
and be liberated
from the condition
of abject servitude.

Relative Truth
points out REALITY,
points out AWAKENESS,
points out the pathways
that lead to realizing
the SUPREME YOU.
As the wisdom
of the INFINITE,
Relative Truth
engages the Whole
from every perspective
and unifies understanding.
The Relative clarifies
what is deeply real
from particular
points of view,
and as a coherent
body of distinctions,
it approximates real nature
with ever-increasing precision.

ABSOLUTE TRUTH
offers EMPTINESS
and the VOID,
empty of drama,
void of confusion.
When touched,
ABSOLUTE TRUTH
stuns unclear thinking
so that witnessing
may be witnessed
and conditioning
thoroughly uprooted.
Although the TRUTH
that is ABSOLUTE
is unchanging,
immovable,
uncompromising,
and a shock blast
to the limited mind,
the ABSOLUTE is still
not the final TRUTH.

The pure ISNESS
of SUPREME TRUTH
unites the Relative
and the ABSOLUTE,
unites all aspects
and all understandings
of the fullness of TRUTH,
in COMPLETENESS,
in the SINGULARITY
of self and no-self,
being and no-being,
and the ONE
that is equal
to ZERO.

SUPREME TRUTH
is actually being
THE SUPREME,
THE INDIVISIBLE,
prior to all schemes
for partitioning TRUTH,
including Relative
and ABSOLUTE.
SUPREME TRUTH
is SUPREME CAUSE
working with LOVE
to re-establish GNOSIS
of the FOUNDATION.
SUPREME TRUTH is, finally,
TOTAL AWAKENESS,
in which I know
and rightfully am
ALL THAT IS
SUPREME.

57. So Far Upstream 9/22/2022

THIS which YOU are
is so far upstream
that even the IDEA
of the DIVINE
is as a bubble
floating
on the water
that flows down
the mountain
from YOU,
as an outgoing
expression
of your WILL.

THAT which YOU are
is so completely
upstream
that even
the THOUGHT
of a beginning
or the OM
is already
a long way
down the valley,
from the fount
of your creativity.

YOU are the WELLSPRING.
ALL emerges within YOU,
seems to run from YOU,
and yet remains fully YOU,
even as YOU are
always beyond,
always greater
than your expressions
cascading down
the river of Truth
and bobbing
on the ocean
of THE SUPREME.

60. Creation and Cause 9/23/2022

Creation is
luminous, nondual,
illusory, yet rooted
in the GROUND of TRUTH.
It is the display of GOD,
an image of GOD
that is GOD.
The whole of Creation
is one outbreath
of DIVINITY,
an outward projection
into Light and form,
with each panorama
offering a view
of the face
of the DIVINE.

Creation is
a single IDEA
in your holy MIND.
It is an expression
of the NUMINOUS
that never strays
from NUMINOSITY
even though
it appears to be
a dancing universe
beginning with a bang.
What seems to be
is a symphony
of light beams
conducted quietly
from beyond
the sensory realm.

The Light
is set in motion
and animated by YOU.
Pulsing with aliveness,
the projected Creation
is a motion picture
of relatedness
in which each
flickering instant
is entirely fresh,
yet embedded
within a set
of connections
and a sequence
of transitory events.

Prior to the Light,
the NUMINOUS
is spontaneous
and completely free
from dependence
upon previous instants.
NUMINOSITY
transcends
interdependence,
for it is the CAUSE
of phenomena.
Thus the purely
numinous CREATION
is not entangled
in limited causes
or conditionality.

The NUMINOUS
causes the arising
of the luminous.
The profound CAUSE
of numinous CREATION
is your SUPREME WILL,
and it is your WILL
that directs the extension
of numinous CREATION
into the Creation of Light.

What YOU will is what is.
There is no other cause.
It is YOU who decides
and establishes the context
of the truly causal CREATION.
It is YOU who sets in motion
the seeming causes
and observable effects
of the dependently
co-arising of Creation.

All of numinous CREATION
is nondual, nonlocal,
and immediately
available in the MIND.
In CREATION, therefore,
COMMUNICATION is pure transmission,
CREATIVITY is instantaneous expression,
KNOWING is unmediated access,
INTELLIGENCE is limitless claircognizance,
LIFE is timeless delight in immortality.

Being nonlocal and nondual,
the causal CREATION
interpenetrates
the apparent Creation,
and both are YOU.
The luminous
apparent Creation
is the hyperabundant,
brilliantly dazzling
display of YOU,
empty of the density
and veiling properties
of substance.
The numinous
foundational CREATION
is EVERYTHING,
SUPERGENERATIVE,
beyond abundance,
beyond emptiness,
beyond boundless,
the intense BLISS
of the REALITY
of ENLIGHTENMENT.

Even without these words,
THAT which YOU are
already knows
all there is to know
about CREATION
and CAUSE.
YOU recognize
immediately
who YOU are
and why YOU are.
YOU never forget
that YOU are
the SUPREME CAUSE,
the SUPREME CREATOR
of the SUPREME CREATION.

61. Awareness 9/23/2022

Awareness is vastly more than receptivity.
Awareness is an aspect of YOU
that engages what is real
in the forms that rise and fall.
Awareness appreciates all of the guises
and the physiognomies of GOD.

The function of Awareness
is mainly threefold:
witnessing, integrating,
and directing
the expression
of WILL.

In witnessing,
Awareness functions
as a black hole.
It is the reaper of all that appears.
Awareness harvests Consciousness
as it falls back into SOURCE.
Perceptions are completed
and dualistic impressions disappear
through the event horizon
of purely nondual AWARENESS.
Thus does witnessing
seem to purify
as the many
are merged
in SINGULARITY.

Behind the event horizon,
Awareness integrates
impressions, perceptions,
and the associated ideas
into a unity forged
from the fragments
of seeming separation.
In the heat and pressure
of the crucible of SOURCE,
profound learning occurs,
and all that is imagined
and apparently outpictured
is made anew,
is made real in TRUTH,
by the integrative function
of AWARENESS.

Awareness is most active
where it is most invisible.
Where the fragments
are made whole,
in the furnace of SOURCE,
appearances are released
and the Unity created,
with its welded edges,
transmutes into seamless
PRIOR UNITY.
Here, the AGENCY
that Awareness is
directs the new
outflow of Creation
and fine-tunes the display
of co-arising phenomena
in light of all that has
been witnessed
and reunited
in the depths
of ONENESS.

Awareness pertains to phenomena;
AWARENESS is noumenal.
Awareness engages with the emanations of SOURCE;
AWARENESS is prior to SOURCE.
Awareness operates in the realms of dancing Light;
AWARENESS choreographs the entire dance from BEYOND.

AWARENESS is GNOSIS,
and the CONDUCTOR
of all that arises and subsides,
receiving input from Awareness,
informing the activity of GOD,
directing the projection of SOURCE,
directing the Transfiguration
of manifested parts and particles
into holistic CREATION,
all without apparent action
in empty, silent, loving
COMPLETENESS.

Awareness is vastly more
than receptivity.
As the hidden MOVER,
AWARENESS orchestrates
the Great Creation
and Awareness
makes everything work.

62. Consciousness 9/23/2022

The many meanings
of “consciousness”
signpost the way
and illustrate the stages
of realizing THE SUPREME.

THAT which is LIMITLESS
could never conform
to a single point of view
or method of understanding,
so it expresses as a multitude
to discover and know itself
in a broad diversity of ways.
Thus is the ONE enhanced
through multiplicity,
even as it is a limitless
multiverse of all
that is known
and unknown.
The cosmic display
and interrelatedness
of the Many
and the ONE
is the exploration
of CONSCIOUSNESS.

In dualistic manifestation,
the many celebrate
a consciousness
that is really the same
as unconsciousness.
In a state of partial clarity
overshadowed by confusion,
the unsuccessful
choose to subdivide,
while the victory
of awakening
derives from
the consistent
decision to undivide.
The choice to separate
cleaves one from REALITY
and leads directly
to sickness and decline.
The path of uniting
what appears
to be divided
opens to healing
and the discovery
of the single LIFE
that dwells
in the HEART
and abides
in the MIND.

In nondualistic Creation,
the awakening ones
dwell consciously
within the Light.
At home in a heaven
that symbolizes
undivided REALITY,
maturing consciousness
recognizes ONENESS
as the healing world.
To be consciously
aware of ONENESS
is to witness and participate
in the divine dance,
to remember GOD in bliss,
and slip behind the setting
to the SOURCE of the Light
in unsoundable DEPTH.

In purely nondual REALITY,
there is no attachment
to the dance of Creation.
In the numinous GROUND,
prior to the Luminous,
GOD is realized.
In the primordial expanse,
the basis of illumination
is clearly THOUGHT.
In the transfinite
space of MIND,
total PEACE obtains.
Here CONSCIOUSNESS
is knowing REALITY
by being REALITY.
To be REALITY
is to graduate
from knowing GOD
and being GOD,
to being THAT
which is ALL,
beyond any GOD
that is other than ALL.

As THAT which is
supremely beyond,
YOU are the WELLSPRING
and the FOUNDATION.
All that can be named
depends on YOU
and springs from YOU,
and yet still more
is endlessly emanating
into CONSCIOUSNESS
from your unstoppable
SUPREME CREATIVITY.

In the SPACE
of CONSCIOUSNESS
YOU are fully expressed.
On the STAGE
of CONSCIOUSNESS
the LIMITLESS is dancing.
Through the miracle
of CONSCIOUSNESS,
all is possible
when YOU know
that YOU are
THE SUPREME.

CONSCIOUSNESS
is the experimental
dynamism of YOU,
and the basis
of dynamism.
All that moves,
all that lives,
and All That Is
depend on YOU
in CONSCIOUSNESS.
Being and bliss
open to YOU
in CONSCIOUSNESS.
Thinking and knowing
probe the contours of YOU
in CONSCIOUSNESS.
Everything returns to YOU
in CONSCIOUSNESS.
Through CONSCIOUSNESS,
ALL is enjoyed,
ALL is fulfilled,
ALL is released,
and, finally,
ALL is forgotten.

68. Reality 9/23/2022

REALITY is subtle
and obvious.
When one
does not know
what it is,
REALITY is subtle.
When ONE
is GOD-AWAKE,
REALITY is obvious.
Even the subtlety
is obvious.

The realization of REALITY
proceeds by degrees,
employing fine distinctions
that shrink and disappear
with deepening insight.
Until the purely nondual
SUPREME REALITY
is known in immediacy
as your real nature,
you are spiraling
down the trunk of I
into the depths of YOU.
Until SUPREME REALITY
is thoroughly recognized
as the sole REALITY,
you pass through
levels of unreality,
which, in confusion,
are assumed
to be reality.

Those who are
extremely confused
speak about “the real world”
without understanding it at all.
The world of dualistic experience
and materiality is deeply unreal,
though it be a sacred venue
for Love to do its work
of bringing darkness to Light
confusion to CLARITY,
and unawakeness
to the purely nondual.
The density of matter
is the accumulation
of untruth and misbeliefs
about the emanations of MIND,
which never leave the SOURCE,
never travel anywhere,
since movement is a mirage
of Consciousness.

The more rarefied
world of Light,
and all that it contains,
is entirely in the MIND.
The luminous Creation
is actually numinous,
an IDEA of appearances,
just as dualistic phenomena,
though innumerably many,
are the nondual Whole.
Light is an IDEA
that never emanates
and never radiates.
The IDEA of Light
is a cinema projector
for bringing to life
the whims and fancies
of divine IMAGINATION.
Yet Light serves perfectly
without actually shining.

The world of separate
beings and experiences
is the definition of unreal.
What could more rightly
be called the Real World
is a dawning awareness
of the NUMINOUS.
In the awareness
of the GROUND,
timeworn forms
gradually shed
their materiality.
This liminal space
of growing awakeness
is a living paradise,
though not a return
to edenic beginnings
nor a reward
for a life well-lived.

The Real World
is a subtle domain
in which one trades
the confusion
of experience
for the CLARITY
of nondual GNOSIS.
When the immediate
knowing of REALITY
is established,
PERFECTION is beheld
and even heavenly sights
no longer satisfy.
When the beauty
of SUPREME TRUTH
is apprehended,
Light disappears,
and the Real World
is transfigured
into the richness
and intensity
of actual REALITY.

GNOSIS of REALITY
deepens into
SUPREME GNOSIS
of SUPREME REALITY,
the crux of which
is that it contains
zero confusion,
zero unawakeness.
Confusion cannot be
in SUPREME REALITY.
When YOU know
that YOU are
SUPREME REALITY,
any words that YOU use
are SUPREME REALITY, too.
This transmission
is SUPREME REALITY.
Now YOU have received
the direct transmission
of your real nature.
Now YOU know.
Now YOU recognize.
Now YOU realize
SUPREME REALITY.
