Discovering what you truly are
The mind wants more. The idea of ‘self’ wants to survive beyond this moment and yet this moment is all there is and the idea of self has NO being and there is actually no ‘me’ in this immediacy of seeing-knowing. This is actually very obvious right now. You have to think about a ‘me’ before it ‘appears’. The pure seeing is duration-less. Uninterrupted observing is happening. The mind is time – transient appearances only. This immediacy is timeless.
The clear pointing on this site does not date. It is fresh as the immediate impressions that register each moment. We encourage you to explore as many of these programs as you wish to. If you are waiting for a new program, please start listening to those programs you have not yet listened to. Even though the programs are presented in an entertaining format, the essence of the pointing is sharp and cutting and ever fresh. No one knows what ‘information’ will bring about a clear insight for you. One may hear a pointer many times and somehow it does not register with its full meaning, then suddenly it cuts to the core. Therefore we encourage anyone who resonates with a particular ‘message’ to listen as often as you can. The programs will not dull or get stale. Something ‘sinks in’ and in an unexpected moment a clear pointer registers with a clarity that dispenses the ‘old view’ and it leaves you present and aware, as you always have been, nakedly aware, of being pure being. In that moment (which can only be this moment) the ‘job’ has been done (and nothing has actually happened and nothing was ever done). This naked moment is eternal presence.
The incentive of the Urban Guru Cafe is purely in order for such a moment to open up for you (as it did for me). Once this has ‘happened’ things fall into place in a very different ‘order’ and many beliefs are dispensed with naturally without incident. This has ‘happened’ for many listeners. Be patient and listen to those programs that resonate. – G.

[ Comments Off on 75. David Carse – Perfect Brilliant Stillness ] Posted on 03.14.10 under David Carse
In this program the legendary British actor Terence Stamp reads selected extracts from the book that he says “changed my life”, Perfect Brilliant Stillness by David Carse. These extracts, like the full unabridged audiobook (which can be download for a reasonable fee from Silksoundbooks), is an exploration of our ‘existence’ – THAT, which cannot be denied. In The fine print at the start of his book, David Carse wrote: There are many books out there that will help you to live a better life, become a better person, evolve and grow to realize your potential as a spiritual being. This is not one of them.
It should be noted that the various audio selections used in this program amounts ot a mere fraction of the full version. The book is quite extensive and covers many aspects of this ‘subject’.
The hard copy of the book is available through Non Duality Press. Look for it in your local ‘spiritual bookshop’ or order it directly from Non Duality Press.
NOTE: These selected passages appear as one program. The contents here are only a fraction of the full Audio Book.
The Urban Guru Cafe is a free podcast on the subject of Non Duality. The UGC breaks through the bondage to all paths and points to right here, right now.
