From a Satsang with B at the New Zealand Centre - August 2017 Excerpt & Audio
"As you go to sleep at night, slowly, slowly, slowly you become naked of using structure. You strip yourself bare of your thoughts and your feelings and you lay down all your structured identity. Your self cannot and does not go with you in deep dreamless sleep. You go towards deep dreamless sleep like a caterpillar would go towards the chrysalis. It has no idea what it is turning into now."
Q:How can I unlisten to old stories without denying or refusing them?
B: In any moment of the day what you think you are seeing is not what is actually on offer. What you think you are in the experience of is not about a ‘somebody’, it is not about another and not about what you are doing. It is entirely about where you are coming from in this ‘doing-ness’.
A beautiful piece from a skype conversation with B - Excerpt & Audio
Does the Deep need a name? Does the Deep play a game? If the Deep is not playing a game then what's playing? If we are to further our conversation and if you are to move the evolution of your surface form and evolve what you are, then you can't look at anything as 'somebody'. You have to see 'somebody' is part of the game, because otherwise you will be constantly drawing conclusions. Because as a self that's all you do.
On retreat you notice that what makes a retreat so amazing is that we open up as one Being in one body, forming and moving. Instead of joining others as bodies we move into each other's realisation of Being. We become a deeper movement of a powerful Being and it is embodied; not several bodies but one body of movement as you and I as embodiment of Being on the level of humanness.
Video and Article You know the end of your time. It’s easy to recognise the end of your time. The end of your time is the most difficult period you’ve had in your entire life. That’s the end of your time.
What You Are has no need to reflect off of any belief that anything is previous to What You Are. In short: You are not of time or space. Your Being doesn't function in a linear way. You, as Awareness, have identified with a level that believes it lives in a linear way. In a deeper place, previous choices have no reality although the forms of previous choices will still be moving through.
In truth, You are Light streaming Reality. All 'this' is Life streaming. Your essential nature is streaming this moment alone. The belief that you have a past or a future is through the interpretation of mind only, the conditional aspects of what we believe belongs to this planet.

What we're about to look at is the basis and ground of the entire life of the living universe. Certainly this will be the ground of everything we could ever possibly share together on this retreat. Very simple…
