International best selling co-author of “The Jesus Mysteries”, Tim Freke, gives his views on Non Duality and integrating the sense of separation.

Gnosticism, as such, is only a few years older than Christianity but its origins, or the origins of its material, are lost in time. No one knows the exact origins of Gnosticism – Yet what it is all about is just that knowing that is present with you right now.

So, understand the light – and make friends with it – Hermes the Thrice-Greatest.

The program is looking at things from a different angle and is bound to stimulate a lot of comments and bring some new material for contemplation.

This interview will be presented in three parts. Here are two quotes from Nisargadatta that express the essence message in this program: “When I see that I am nothing, that is wisdom. When I see that I am everything, that is love and my life moves between these two“.

“Those who know only scriptures know nothing – To know is to BE”. – Nisargadatta

“Delayed response is wrong response. Thought, feeling and action must be one and simultaneous with the situation that calls for them” – Nisargadatta

The essence of the message is subtle. The mind is attuned to gross concepts. In this program is a very subtle introduction to our true nature. Listen to it as often as you can. The insight that comes, opens up the being-ness.

There is ‘no reason’ why anyone should miss it. It is the immediacy of being.

The voices of Jack Kornfield, Mark West, Ramesh Balsekar appear in this program.

Three short audio extracts from the video “Awaken to the Eternal“.

Various visitors put questions to Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj through the English translator, Ramesh.

Music by Asad Qizilibash, Ravi Shanka and the closing music by Van Morrison.
