Nonduality and Pure Awareness is the light that lights the world

Light that lights the world

 Safe Harbour

We are not even certain that the ship that is to carry us
Over the unknown seas has not sprung a leak somewhere.
Carl Gustav Jung

We doubt too much. Fear holds us back from embracing change. Feeling uncertain about our abilities, we may never raise the anchor that holds us to our habitual shores.

Our personality often refuses to recognise the role of the higher self—we lack confidence in our own inner voice or intuition.

Life holds infinite possibilities and there are many seas to cross but uncertainty and indecision cause us to procrastinate. We vacillate as to which way to sail, and so our ship sits motionless in sheltered waters.

A ship is safe in harbour but that’s not what ships are for. —John A. Shedd

All we truly seek is peace and happiness; and peace and happiness is found where self is no longer at odds with the world.

Nature shows that everything in the universe is fundamentally connected, having its place and meaning in the grand design of life. We seem to have separated ourselves from nature, as well as each other, and to reunite will enrich all of humanity with true purpose. There is a primordial need to explore and discover for ourselves our reason for being here.

When Columbus sailed away he left behind a port shrouded in doubt and disbelief. He took it upon himself, with passionate determination and resolute conviction, to find his way across unknown seas. Columbus had an immutable faith that a new world existed; he moved beyond all fear and superstition; his knowledge and trust in his inner voice gave him the confidence to break free from the belief that the earth was flat.

Man cannot discover new oceans until he has courage to lose sight of the shore. —Author unknown

The spiritual adventurer must seek the navigational skills of the soul to safely steer and guide the ship. So raise the sails and trim all the sheets; set your course and follow the North Star.

…All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song
And the white sail’s shaking…
—John Masefield

Pure Awareness

Voyager: The Art of Pure Awareness

Voyager and the art of pure awareness is a quest to find out who we really are. A journey that takes us beyond ‘earth’s human shores’ in search of true peace and happiness. Life and everything we experience arise from awareness. We are never outside awareness. Just as waves are not separate from the ocean, we are not separate from awareness. We are each a human wave arising in ‘the sea of pure awareness.’

Book image Voyager - The Art of Pure AwarenessAn adventure into the nonduality nature of pure awareness, Voyager inspires us along our own individual path of inner transformation. An essential and inspirational work that conveys the inexpressible truth of existence—“We are pure awareness at centre, human in appearance.”

Abiding in the heart of humanity is the light of true peace and happiness. Each of the twenty five chapters presents a voyage toward our inner, universal Self, bringing a deeper and wider perspective along the way. Exploring the shores of human-beingness ever more deeply, we realise, “soul is the lighthouse—the light that guides us safely home.” By simply experiencing ourselves without distraction of mind, we see through personal drama to our true nature. Pure awareness is an art that requires practice to quiet the surface of mind and still the moving waters of our emotional seas. Enlightenment is simply being. A recognition that all world appearances are illuminated from the light that shines in our heart.

We stand at the bow of our ship. The sky is clear, the sea is calm.…Now voyager sail thou forth to seek and find.Walt Whitman
