Currently we understand consent as a clear, total and unequivocal Yes all the way throughout an act of sexual intimacy. And that such a Yes must be offered in full consciousness, which means one cannot be “under the influence” in any way, whether of consciousness-altering substances or of “external” power and hierarchy dynamics.

Except, who is fully conscious? Who is clearly and totally and unequivocally connected with and saying Yes (or No!) from the subtlest core of their pure, unmediated, unconditioned being? (more…)

The wave upon an ocean appears have a form and travel forward in time to the shore. And yet, we realize that nothing (no form) travels. And that at every point in the ocean, apparent movement is in the Now… even if a point far away can be mentally / experientially conceptualized as the “past” (or “birth”) of the point near the shore (“death”)!  (more…)

When the mind is still in dominant play and so, attention is still substantially attuned to the experiential / phenomenal, it is easy to assert that being present and speaking / embracing “truth” includes the “truth of the moment” — that which is experiential, temporal and transient.

So when we believe it is possible to consume alcohol and still be aligned in Self, and when we believe we can “enjoy” or “relax” with a glass of something, and when we believe we can discuss/ connect over a drink to get clarity on something or truly connect with one-another… hehe.

Every perspective is accurate (“right”), and no perspective is Truth. That is, no-perspective is Truth 🙂

P.S. No, Truth is not the sum total of perspectives either… no amount of changing angles reveals a thing, even if it allows the habitual fixed stance to release 🙂

Truth dawns in no perspective at all, in the zero separation of seer-and-seen.

For solidarity, recognize the One who stands for (is a stand in for!) your(Self), dividing not a “you” from (your)Self. That being that is You, only appearing as another.

And once there is recognition of the One, there is recognition of everyone standing for I.
