Objects only come in and out of existence from the point of view of a subject, whilst I, Awareness, who am neither a subject nor an object and yet the reality of both, am eternally present.

Our Nature is Pure Unclouded Awareness-God-Love

How would you define in a quick simple statement, the core essence of your teachings and the way to get there?

Rupert,

Our nature is pure unclouded awareness-God-love etc… whatever words describe it that everyone is comfortable with. Love(our essence) is not a definable thing. It is beyond the realm of our habitual thoughts-feelings-actions, yet within this awareness, our thoughts-feelings-actions originate…and after watching your videos on Stillness Speaks and reading your books and and as close as posssible with words…how would you define in a quick simple statement, the core essence of your teachings and the way to get there?

If what I’m asking is inappropriate, or my timing is wrong, my apologies. I’ve never done this before.

Dear Dave,

Your question is neither inappropriate nor ill-timed.

The essence of this teaching is precisely the ‘pure unclouded awareness-God-love’ that you cite.

Without a question, there is no teaching. There is only this ‘pure unclouded awareness-God-love,’ knowing/being/loving itself.

A question is like a bucket that is dipped into this ocean of ‘pure unclouded awareness-God-love.’ What comes out is intimately and uniquely tailored to the shape of the bucket.

When the answer is heard it resonates with the same ‘pure unclouded awareness-God-love’ in the apparent other. That is, Presence recognises itself.

At this stage the bucket dissolves and only pure unclouded awareness-God-love remains. No teacher, no student, no teaching, no question, no answer.

With love,

Rupert
