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.

Excerpt: "The delight is the natural state, so before we acquired egos, all of us were always in a state of delight. That's the normal baseline of human consciousness. And then an ego program was imposed on us that took away our delight, and the ego is based on the loss of delight. Because we were trained that we had to get serious and we had to be worried about things and we had to be concerned with learning things and doing things that we didn't want to do, and our delight soon became something else, and there was a nostalgia for the lost delight. And so delight became a kind of an imaginary state that we wished we could be in. And all of culture is basically made up of ways of being in artificial substitutes of delight. We try to get delight from films, from comfort foods, from all kinds of artificial celebrations and sex, drugs, rock ‘n' roll, but none of them produce real delight, and we have lost our delight because we've lost our innocence." Recorded on the evening of Friday, July 7, 2017.

Excerpt: “Silence is both the way and the goal of meditation. The silence that is being referred to is the silence of wakeful consciousness aware of itself as it really is; not projecting out fantasies and affects and mental objects, not deluding oneself, not being filled with chatter, not being sleepy and spaced out, not being in either desire or fear. It is the state of silence in which there is no mental activity, in which all the mind’s modifications have been stopped, that the Real Self emerges, and the ego and all of its illusions and all of its suffering dissolve forever.” Recorded during the Silent Retreat, on the evening of Saturday, August 12, 2017.
