Excerpt: "One could use the metaphor of an infinite sheet of cookie dough. And there is a cookie cutter that has cut a certain amount of this dough and separated it out—that's the ego. Now, before it's baked it can be put back in, and once it is smoothed out as part of the sheet of cookie dough it loses its identity doesn't it? It's simply the entire infinite sheet of sweetness, but once it's been separated out into a tiny little cookie and baked, it can't be put back; that's ego life. And so because the ego is a cutout, and is a form that has been separated from its own essence and baked into hatred, fear, envy, despair, all of that produced simply by its removal from its Infinite Source, the ego cannot be healed because it is the very cutting off from its infinite essence that is the problem." Recorded on the morning of Wednesday, December 9, 2015.

Excerpt: "What does Santa Clause give? He gives you a present. Most people only have a past. Santa gives you a present - he gives you Divine Presence, that's what the gift is under the tree. And what is the tree, it's the Tree of Life, it has to be evergreen, right? When you have arrived at the Tree of Life and the star of Bethlehem, the star which is that ultimate point of Infinite Light that is the absolute image of Shiva and you are within that field of delight, of joy that is Christmas, the season of Christmas, and everyone comes to the tree and there are gifts for everyone because Santa was very generous, and it's all there, then everyone receives a present . . . . It is the Presence that is the real gift, and if you are willing to accept Santa's gift of eternal, ever-green Presence, then you are liberated." Recorded during a Silent Retreat, on the morning of Thursday, June 15, 2017.

Excerpt: "Because all that is directly known by the knower is consciousness itself. And consciousness places a grid over the known, objectifies it, calls it a world, calls it external, divides the external and the internal, and creates an illusory identity to function within the realm of the known. Once that illusory identity is believed in, and the positor of all of these positings is forgotten about, the consciousness has trapped itself within an illusory matrix within which it will inevitably be traumatized, and it will create melodramas of persecution, of needing to be rescued, or being a rescuer, or a victim, or all three cycling around one another. And the only way out of this eternal melodrama of suffering is to recognize that the one that posited itself in any of these positions of rescuer, victim, or persecutor, is not within that matrix at all, and was never born into a world, nor separated from consciousness in its pure form—which in the mythic construct is known as God." Recorded on the morning of Friday, April 1, 2016.

Excerpt: "The game is such that the very thoughts that you have; every thought, every image, every memory, every impulse, is a move in the game - but did you make the move, or was that move made against you? Because it is undecidable who is responsible for your thoughts; is it your own consciousness? Is it some introjection of an other? Is it a demonic entity? Is it the family system internalized? Is it some Big Other that has brainwashed you? Is it some dream in the mind of God? Is it psychosis? It's indeterminable." Recorded on the morning of Wednesday, February 10, 2016.

“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance, eternal union with that Real that alone can guide us safely through the rapids of the white water and the black water […] that we can only get through if we are able to levitate above the surface of the raging stream of consciousness through our surrender to that Light that carries us above the flood to safety on the other shore of non-duality.” Recorded on the morning of Tuesday, March 28, 2017.
