The Greatest Advice in the Entire Universe.

I don’t know.

No, really. I don’t know.

I don’t know is the final conclusion of all the ramblings and figuring out of the intellect, the climactic eschaton of thought.

I don’t know is the sweet bliss of liberation. It is surrender to True Wisdom which is beyond.

So the function of thought has been mis-handled, mis-assigned by most people for most of history.

The function of thought, or the intellect, which is our capacity to reason and figure, well this function is not really “where-its-at” so to speak.

The intellect’s most intelligent capacity lies in its ability to surrender to the Unknown and Unknowable. The “Great I Don’t Know”.

Therefore, the best advice I could ever give anyone, would be to arrive at the understanding that:

…you really don’t know a thing about anything,

…and that you as a thinker are actually totally limited and as a thinker you are caught in a spinning hampster wheel of delusion.

Thought is like a pinball just hitting and bouncing against bumbers and lights and whistles and never really accomplishing anything at all.


…there’s something beyond thought, isn’t there? There is a Real Intelligence which is True Knowing and Understanding, and this Intelligence can only be found in…

…the silence beyond thought.

How do I stop thought and access this Intelligence then?

Sorry but…

…you can’t.

Why? Because “I” is a thought. A thought can’t stop a thought because it’s a thought. And this is where it gets really hard to talk about.

So, I’ll just say that it’s not a big deal.

You may experiment by indulging in the possibility that thoughts just may not be of any real intelligence or meaning.

Thoughts may seem like they are expressing solid truths and facts, but investigate for yourself if in fact they have any truth to them at all.

I have found that they are just distortions mostly and not worth paying much time or attention to.

Instead, look what is left after a thought dissolves under the light of your awareness. This means…

  1. look at the arising thought.
  2. Discover if its really even true at all.
  3. See what’s left as that thought disappears.

It’s as if thinking is a blanket cast before our eyes, or a blindfold. We focus on this obstruction and ooh and aah at it. But how about getting a peak beyond the blindfold, then what?

When the blindfold of thought is dropped we can then see what’s really in the room. 

We drop this blindfold when we notice gradually that that our thinking isn’t getting us anywhere and it in fact never has.

When we realize our dreams and aspirations and plans and futures and tie-ups with the past stories of our made-up selves are absolutely meaningless, then we FINALLY get to the eschaton of all thought:

“holy Shit…. I just don’t know. I actually can’t know. I don’t have the capacity to know.”

And this is a glorious moment indeed.

Because when I see that I don’t know, I begin to surrender to the Unknown and Unknowable Mystery which does not speak in words. This Mystery can more accurately be described as a frequency which can be accessed by tuning into the spaces between or beyond thought.

And to explore this realm is an adventure indeed. An adventure which trumps all adventures in this world of form. This is the inner adventure and you don’t have to go anywhere…. you just have to go away.

The Silent Beyond Unknowable Mystery Frequency is the Ultimate Medicine.

Touching this vastness just once can dissolve all problems, heal all disease, and transform any affliction.

This is why the first principle in A Course in Miracles states:

There is no order of difficulty in miracles.
One is not “harder” or “bigger” than another.
They are all the same.”

The “miracle” is the expression of the frequency of the Mystery, the beyond “I” and thought. It is what happens when thought is surrendered. It is what happens when we see that the best that thought can do for us is to help us get to “I don’t know”.

This essay was inspired to me as I laid in bed earlier this evening tossing and turning beneath the blind-fold of thought.

“What about this project and that person, what about what she’s doing, oh how horrible, and ooh, I’m so excited about doing this and that tomorrow, but urgh, I have to do that, and I might go to jail anyway, oh my GOD!”

The mechanism of thought finally became so blatantly dis-functional that I realized “I don’t know about any of it at all.”

I got up and began writing.

The “I don’t know” realization came like a cool breeze, a gentle shower of Grace, cooling and relaxing my tormented mind. Future disappears, along with past, and there’s just…

…a Frequency resonating that is Life itself.

So, try it!

That’s my gift to you. Entertain this silly idea that you may not actually have a clue about anything at all.

It just may lead you to the cool well you’ve been so thirsty for:)



So seriously, what is this blog about anyway?

First of all, if you have read any of my previous blog posts, I apologize for allowing my topics to bounce around like this… I mean, what is this blog about anyway? Self help, or blogging, or Taoism/Advaita Vedanta, or what?

Well, I think it’s turning into a blog about the fusion of all three.

I only ask for your patience as I let this child of mine settle into the form it wants to be of the most service to all bloggers and life-forms on this planet.

Since I started blogging (like two weeks ago) my life has seriously taken a turn for the upswing. So obviously I want to share my passion about blogging. At the same time, blogging has created a platform for me to put into practice many of the tools I have gathered on my journey in personal development and Advaita.

What is Advaita?

Advaita means “not two”. It is also known as non-duality, and..

…it provides huge relief by cutting human suffering off at the knees.

Advaita is an invitation to entertain the idea that, just maybe, this story that is constantly churning in our heads is not actually who we are.

That… just maybe, what we are is not totally contained in these separate bodies.

That…just maybe this struggle to acquire and achieve (whether spiritual or material) is a struggle to “get” what is already here.

Advaita doesn’t just preach that this is the case, it offers an invitation called self-inquiry asking us to just find out what this “I” (that is at the root of all our stories and problems and beliefs)… is.

Self-inquiry leads us to see that this “I” we believe ourselves to be, is actually nothing but a thought, and that thought must arise from somewhere. That “somewhere” turns out to be a mystery that cannot be touched by any word or description of any kind. It is beyond pleasure and pain, it is beyond suffering, and beyond anything manifest. It is home base, it is source, it is God …. our True Nature, who we really are… but words only point to the actual present moment, amazingly simple, experience of That, or rather… This.

WHoa…. I know that’s getting a little deep isn’t it?

And what the hell kind of good will this do for me?

Well, this is where the fusion takes place.

I’m sure we have all plunged into the great works of the personal development field at some point or other. Come on, fess up; affirmations, goals, vision boards, life coaches, law of attraction, manifesting your dream life, etc… you know you’ve tried it.

I actually really love that kind of stuff. I love Tony Robbins, and just ordered his course, “The Ultimate Edge” I love the movie the Secret, and Abraham, and Napoleon Hill and even Zig Ziglar. I think positively, set goals, and do all those things.


If the non-dual approach points to the realization that I am that which I am seeking, materially and spiritually, that all aspiration is only towards that which is already here, that I already am….

Then what in the is the point of doing anything at all? Why not just sit on my ass and watch Netflix all day long?

I struggled with this seeming dichotomy for many years. And I think this blog is a resolution of that struggle:

“How do I merge Advaita Vedanta and personal developement strategies?”

The answer gives juice to both sides of the equation.


Since I am already that which I am aspiring for, then my whole life, my goals, my aspirations, my activities, my “dream life” can be an expression of the incorruptible, unfathomable, miraculous Truth that I AM!

Then, my apparent journey in this world of work, relationships, finance, purpose — all the issues of life, including the obstacles which arise as a goal is attained, all this is far more easy to endure and cope with when I know — when I have the tangible experience and knowing, that…

…I am already totally, perfectly, complete and whole.

I am already that which I want. Instead of this realization making me lazy, this realization supports strength and determination to accomplish and express the physical reflection of my True Nature — which is the Perfect and complete Source of all.

Believe it or not, I will confess that there is yet another reason I am writing this blog, and that is… I really want to get better at communicating this.

This is simple stuff, so simple! but so deep compared to what a normal conversation sounds like.

So please, leave a comment. Even if you think I am babbling on and being incoherent, please tell me, because that will help me get better at sharing my message, which I know is needed in this world at this time.

So I hope this blog is helpful to you. I hope this fusion can help you find deeper meaning,  peace, purpose and joy in this world during these challenging times.

At your service,



The greatest gift I can give you…

doorway to spaceI AM…

…not interested in being another blogger out there who promises to make your life better.

I don’t want to promise you everlasting happiness and wealth and provide you with how-to ecourses and ebooks on how to step by step become something or other.
There’s nothing wrong with that stuff, but it’s not my interest at all.

My intention

…is that what you read and experience here will get you to become more aquainted with mystery of timelessness.

What good will that do? you may ask.

The reason I write this is the same reason you read this, is the same reason any of us do anything. All the things we do, the diets we try, the foods we eat, the relationships we stumble into, the Guru’s we follow, the movies we watch, the blogging, the drugs, the adventures… all of it is to get into timelessness.

Timelessness is relief

…from the addiction, the obsessing of future and past and doing and becoming. Timelessness is the relief we are trying to reach in orgasm, in addictions, in TV and movies, internet surfing, career success, meditation, you name it.

The reason we do it is to get relief from the incessant mental engagement of “past-ing” and “future-ing”.
When future is not the primary focus, there arises a great space. When you are no longer strategizing and planning about what you are going to do next, you can actually enjoy the infinite and overwhelming miracle that Life is.

When past is not the primary focus, there arises even more space to actually be alive.

What is left without the psychological neurotic impulse to constantly reject Life by giving it away to a mental dream?

Timelessness. What is left is a Mystery, a wonder, and the end result of all we have always been searching for. Wow.

This is what I offer…

I offer this reminder amidst the sea of wonderful and fascinating banner ads, and e-courses, and video, and how to anything and everything…

…that right here is what we have always been looking for. Right here.

We can act and move and navigate through this world from this knowing, from this remembering. Practicing this is the antidote to grasping and incesant “future-ing”. I can think of nothing that can help you more but this. This is the charm that removes the misery and suffering from life. This is the “pill” we have always been searching for. And it is so simple that it’s easy to pass by…

…after all, it’s just….
