Thought divides knowing into a knower and the known, loving into a lover and the beloved, and perceiving into a perceiver and the perceived. As such, it is thought alone that abstracts a subject and an object from the seamless, unnamable intimacy of pure Knowing or Experiencing.

Give Yourself Total Freedom

Do you just let life play out as your destiny?

Dear Rupert,

I’ve found you on the Urban Guru Cafe and your descriptions of non-duality has helped me to reach a more intuitive understanding. One question I do have is how does manifestation play out. I’ve used manifestation techniques and it appears as though it has worked. Do you just let life play out as your destiny? Could you talk about this so I can reach a better understanding?




Dear Lisa,

Yes, just let life play out as your destiny. That is, just allow everything to appear as it is.

But remember that your own thoughts and feelings are also part of what is appearing, and the responses and actions that may result from your thoughts and feelings are themselves also part of what is appearing.

So it is not a matter of either letting life play itself out or being more proactive. Rather, it is abiding as Awareness in which everything including your own thoughts, feelings, responses, activities etc. appear, and allowing all of that to be just as it is.

Be knowingly the allowing space in which everything is already taking place. Above all see that there is no individual orchestrator, no individual entity at the helm, controlling everything.

Having said that, if a decision is required of your mind or an action of your body in any given circumstance, think, feel and act as best you can in line with the understanding that you are impersonal Presence and that this one Presence is shared by all. This attitude will keep your thoughts, feelings, activities and relationships safe and always in line with love and understanding.

In this way give yourself total freedom to stand back and observe or to be actively involved and engaged, freely moving from one position to the other, always responding in the moment, with no fixed idea of how things should be or of what your responses should look like. This will keep your activities spontaneous and intimately tailored to the moment.

With kind regards,
