Discovering what you truly are

94. Joan Tollifson – The world goes on the same.

[ Comments Off on 94. Joan Tollifson – The world goes on the same. ] Posted on 10.12.10 under Joan Tollifson

Who wakes up? Does the mirage wake up from the mirage? Is clarity or confusion personal, does it have an owner, or is there simply weather appearing and disappearing, sometimes clear and sometimes cloudy? Is awakening a future event, or does that word point to the utter simplicity of Here and Now?

Joan talks about her views, her background and what it all means in The Simplicity of What is….. Joan’s website is HERE.   Joan’s new book is now available — Painting the Sidewalk with Water: Talks and Dialogs about Nonduality from Nonduality Press.

Music includes Alan Price (from Oh Lucky Man), Rivertribe (Australian band) and ‘Bliss’ by Muse.

The Urban Guru Cafe is a FREE podcast dedicated to clear speakers on the subject of Non Duality.  We thank those who have been mindful and generous with donations.

“Darryl Bailey was drawn to meditation at age fourteen, he spent the next seventeen years exploring awareness and concentration practices from Christian, Hindu, Sufi, Taoist, Buddhist, and Western psychology sources.”

They merely point and discuss what we call Non Duality. Donations will keep this site available for new comers.  At any moment someone may SEE through the illusion of being separate.  This site is for them and the potential of insight – and for nothing more than that.

69. Randall Friend – Undefineable – Part 2

[ Comments Off on 69. Randall Friend – Undefineable – Part 2 ] Posted on 01.08.10 under Randall Friend

We are back packing a punch – remember that memory and anticipation do not actually obscure clear and present awareness. What value does a ‘pointer’ have? The offering of clear pointers (and the recognition of our true nature) is priceless.

In the appearance of space and time, in program number 69, Areti continues to explore Randall’s unique expression on what Non Duality is, ‘as if’ it could be defined.

Randall’s blog is You Are Dreaming. His book is You Are No-Thing from Non-Duality Press. Randall holds talks in Second Life on Tuesdays. See the Virtual UGC page for more information.

Music includes: Rivertribe (Australian Band) Radiohead, Sandy Denny with Fairport Convention, Cat Empire Project, China Crisis, Paul Brady, Judy Collins and Manfred Mann.

This free podcast site does not ask you for anything. Belief is not necessary – see for yourself – small donations help to cover costs – What value does a ‘pointer’ have? Offering clear pointers to absolute strangers without asking for anything is self-less-ness in action. Compassion expresses itself through pointers and the recognition of our true nature is priceless.
