Life is not what you make out of it
. . . it is what you make up about it.
Enjoy the illusion!
On Self Enquiry …
From Ramana to Ramesh the investigation of the sacred question Who Am I, or perhaps What Am I is almost universal as it meanders through our History books and Spiritual testaments. Waking from the illusion of the mental dream state is the definition of the Sage — be it a Toltec tail, Bible story, Buddha Dharma or Brahman Legand. Whether Tolle or Osteen is preaching the Word the seekers continue to flock to the guru in hopes of salvation in the form of the final understanding.
This dharma blog is a collection of my own experiences as I walk or at times wheel down the path. If indeed we are all One, the stories will be familiar and the sign posts a welcome validation that none of us are alone on the journey.
On the Gnani Chronicals …
Whether we call it “Conversations with God”, “Getting in Touch With Our Buddha Nature”, “Connecting with our Higher Self”, or “Looking Within” there is a space inside all of us that speaks with wisdom. With practice, I believe that each of us can access this Knowing Nature even during times of great turmoil and upheaval. The word Gnani or Jnani (knee-yawn-ee) is used to describe someone who is self-realized. The Gnani Chronicles are part of this ancient tradition of self enquiry.
