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.

The entire 99 programs on this site were produced on a MacBook Pro using a simple but excellent audio editing program called Amedeus Pro. We recommend Apple Macs and to date we have had no software conflicts and no major hardware issues with these excellent work tools.
The UGC is on 1 Radio station in BC CFIS FM, Sunday mornings at 8.30. It would be good to have the UGC on a few more stations around the globe. The programs are free. Make some comments and stay in touch. – G.

Kenneth Madden is from Galway, Ireland, and is a relatively unknown ‘speaker’ on Non Duality. That ‘relatively unknown’ is about to change and many will enjoy Kenneth’s expression, simple and direct. This is it – just as it is. He is also an accomplished photographer and you can see some excellent examples of his work on his site. Sure enough ‘Never not Here’ interviewed Kenneth shortly after this program was published.
Kenneth’s Blogsite is here.
It’s a bit of fun and it’s high time too – a good laugh may just nudge its way out of an overly concerned seeker’s big wooly pullover.
Music by a truly wonderful band called Planxty, who once upon a time were Ireland’s most popular folk group (unless we are mistaken). We love Irish music here at the UGC.
The UGC is a free podcast site – uncompromising and yet quite enjoyable. – Small donations are welcome.
Our promise is to entertain without being overly serious and yet still bring it all back to direct pointing – with no overbearing ‘personalities’ pushing their own ‘wheelbarrow message’ about themselves and how sacred they are.
