    And what You are is the great Unborn, timeless and eternal, in its 1st-person perspective as the great I-I, the great Self, the Witness of this page, and this room, and this universe, and everything in it, witnessing it ALL with a passionate equanimity that leaves you alone as the Unmoved Mover. You are likewise the great Unborn, timeless and eternal, in its 2nd-person perspective as the Great Thou, the Great Other, before whom you bow in an infinite act of complete release and savage surrender and ecstatic submission, and receive in return the entire Kosmos as your blessing and your forgiveness and your eternal grace. You are likewise the great Unborn, timeless and eternal in its 3rd-person perspective as the Great Perfection, the Holy Spirit, the Great web of Life in all its infinite perfection and dynamic chaos, its pulsating pulsars and exploding nebulae, its stars and galaxies and planets and oceans, through which runs the common blood and bears the single heart of an Eros seeking its own higher wholeness, and always finding it, and seeking yet again, and always finding it yet once more, because You always know that You are here, don't You? And so in fun and sport and play and delight, and remorse and terror and agony and respite, You throw yourself out to start to play all over again, in this, the deepest part of You that gives birth to galaxies within Your heart, lets the stars light up as the neurons in Your brain, sing songs of love and delight to the submission and surrender of Your own good night, and all of this within the space that is You, the space that You feel as Your own I-I, or this ever-present Witness of the forms of Your own play.

    And in the great I-I, as You witness the Forms of Your own play as the entire Kosmos - in that very moment, which is this timeless Now, a Now that has no beginning and no end, there is simultaneously Spirit in its 1-st person and 2nd=person and 3rd-person forms, the Great I and We and It feel each other, and in that unitary seamless sizzling Now, which is this very moment before you do anything at all, it is, quite simply over.

    Which means, it has, quite simply, begun.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on ken wilber, grace and grit, timeless, presence, self, and time

The Self doesn't live forever in time, it lives in the timeless present prior to time, prior to history, change, succession. The Self is present as Pure Presence, not as everlasting duration, a rather horrible notion.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on ken wilber, grace and grit, love, transcend, and seperate self

Love is a time-honored way to transcend the separate-self sense and leap into the sublime; Treya and I held hands, closed our eyes, and jumped.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on being

in

The very Ground of All Being will be as obvious as one's original face, as vast Emptiness announces both Freedom and Fullness for all souls, an ecstatic release and quiet riot of spiritual radiance drenching each and all, as eternity falls in love with the productions of time all over again, so that looking deep within, one can find only the entire Kosmos, with galaxies swirling where you thought your heart was and supernovas exploding in the middle of what used to be your mind, and spirit itself as simple and obvious as the sound of the rainfall on what is left of the old and forlorn world, long gone in time, never found in space, this simple and ever-present feeling of Being, now and now and endlessly now.

A Quote by Ken Wilber

Wir nannten das, was Treya suchte, schließlich ihren daimon - in der klassichen griechischen Mythologie (lat. daemon) der Ausdruck für die innere Gottheit, den leitenden Geist eines Menschen, man könnte auch sagen seine Schutzgottheit, sein Genius. Der daimon oder genius eines Menschen ist auch sein Schicksal, genauer: der Zuteiler seins geschicks. Treya hatte ihr Schicksal, ihren Genius, ihre Bestimmung, ihren Daimon noch nicht gefunden, nicht in seiner endgültigen Gestalt jedenfalls. Ich sollte ein Teil ihres Schicksals sein, allerdings nicht ganz in der zentralen Stellung, wie Treya meinte, eher als eine Art Katalysator. Letztlich war ihr Daimon natürlich ihr eigenes höheres Selbst, das bald anfangen würde, sich zu äußern, und zwar in der Kunst. .... Aber mit dem Daimon hat es eine seltsame furchtbare Bewandtnis: Achtet man ihn und folgt ihm, dann ist er wirklcih der Geist, der einen leitet. Erkennt man ihn jedoch und folgt ihm nicht, dann wird aus dem Daimon ein Dämon, ein böser Geist - göttliche Energie und Begabung werden zu selbstzerstörerischem Handeln. So sagen etwa die christlichen Mystiker, daß die Flammen der Hölle nur die abglehnte Liebe Gottes sind, zu Dämonen gewordene Engel.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on wilber, simple feeling, evolution, spirit, emptiness, time, and space

Evolution occurs in the world of time and space and form, whereas Spirit's primordial nature is finally timeless and Formless, prior to the of evolution but not other to it. We do not find Spirit or Emptiness by reaching some evolutionary Omega point in time, but rather by stepping off the cycle of time and evolution altogether (or ceasing to contract into it).

A Quote by Ken Wilber on wilber, no boundary, metephysical, and reality

The ultimate metaphysical secret, if we dare state it so simply, is that there are no boundaries in the universe. Boundaries are illusions, products not of reality but of the way we map and edit reality. And while it is fine to map out the territory, it is fatal to confuse the two.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on wilber, sex, ecology, spirituality, ses, big bang, and life

It is flat-out strange that something--that anything--is happening at all. There was nothing then a Big Bang, then here we all are. This is extremely weird.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on one taste, experience, joke, humor, dentist, spirit, progress, soul, and holistic

Like going to the dentist, where you write: "Dental appointment today. All of the dentists in Boulder are 'holistic.' They can't fill a cavity but they're good for your soul. Your teeth rot, but apparently your spirit prospers."

A Quote by Ken Wilber on one taste, experience, prior state, nondual, integral, ramana, enlightenment, in, out, be, and being

One Taste is not some experience you bring about through effort; rather, it is the actual condition of all experience before you do anything to it. This uncontrived state is prior to effort, prior to grasping, prior to avoiding. It is the real world before you do anything to it, including the effort to "see it nondually".

This is the world of One Taste, with no inside and no outside, no subject and no object, no in here versus out there, without means, without path and without goal. And this, as Ramana said, is the final truth.
