The theme of this blog is Vedanta – the Absolute Reality in Indian philosophy – and the long road to enlightenment. I share with you many tips and insights that brilliant authors and teachers have shared with me.

Om Shanti Shanti Shanti,

    Thanks for your blog. I found you via Suzanne Foxton’s blog and I think you were on her nevernothere broadcast?

    Regardless πŸ™‚ I really appreciate your comments on individuality, Sri Ramana, and Papaji. I’m a relative newcomer to Advaita (2-ish years) though have practiced contemplative Christian centering prayer on and off for years.

    Have been listening to Adyashanti for quite a bit of those 2 years and suppose I’ve had some kind of minor awakening. It happened a bit ago while listening and practicing Adya’s True Meditation and then recently while listening to some of Jackie O’Keeffe’s satsangs (she lived at Arunachala for several years).

    Have also had some Kundalini stirring but I had NO idea what it was before Internet research.

    Something has revealed itself – I can “see” the matrix – I suppose this is the observer? The I-I?

    Man, I can tell it would be a really tempting thing to hang out here. It’s pleasant and I don’t have to do anything but watch. I feel very little responsibility for anything and it suits a lower – whatever that is – part of my conditioning just fine.

    Your comments about the individual were just the thing. You probably already know about Anthony de Mello – the Indian Jesuit priest who was enlightened? De Mello tells this story:

    A caravan settled for the night and the man tending the camels came to report to the chief.

    “Are all the camels tied for the night?” asked the chief

    “No, there were not enough ropes for all of the camels so one I left mine untied. But so great is my faith in God that I know he will protect me and my camel.”

    The chief looked at the man with great anger and said, “Go and tie up your camel you fool! God cannot be bothered doing what you can do for yourself!”

    The story seems somewhat appropriate. I have no idea why I’m writing this – just wanted to put this into cyberspace. I’m not much of a blogger but I’ll watch for comments – if any – or use my e-mail if you feel so inclined.

      Hi Lynn, thanks for dropping by and the nice comments. Sounds like things have been unfolding nicely for you – that’s really cool. I’m a big fan of Adyashanti too though I haven’t seen much of his stuff. I’ll have to get onto that! I’ve heard that Christian centering prayer is really good. Apparently it is quite similar in principle to Transcendental Meditation.

      All the best to you, Andrew. πŸ™‚
