A notice from Kalyani Lawry for those in the Melbourne area who are seriously interested in ending the search or radically reassessing their understanding.
Seeking begins with the individual and
ends with the annihilation of the individual.
– Ramesh Balsekar
We are talking about annihilation, death, the end: nothing.
Not death of the body; nothing dies when the body dies.
We are talking about real death.
The death of the self/the personality package.
That existentially terrifying death of the me.
Facing that dread, that anxiety, the very fear that got us seeking.
While it’s easy to construct a conceptual bypass
“There is no me so I know there is nothing to do and no where to go”
It simply doesn’t cut it.
Repeating non-duality pointers like mantras may reduce and manage the anxiety,
Yet nothing changes.
There is no bypass.
There is no conceptual shortcut.
In the end it’s about facing that fear
Going to the place we don’t want to
Entering into the heart of darkness.
In 1991 in a conversation I had with U.G. Krishnamurti he said,
“If people realised what enlightenment is, no one would want it.”
NO ONE GETS THIS:
there is no awakening,
no getting it,
no seeing through,
After reading this, if you still would like to join us this Sunday 5th February at 39 Bradleys Lane, Warrandyte North 3113 VIC – 3 pm to 5 pm, you are welcome as we gently and respectfully deconstruct the search, turning the questions back on the questioner.
It’s not that you get answers.
When the questioner ends, there are no questions.
Please let us know if you are planning to join us: email@example.com
Following the direct lineage of the ancient Navnath masters, and awakened through a direct and simple recognition
of their actuality, Kalyani and Peter are able to express this to those who are open to it.

why you don’t really want to awaken
Painting by Australian Aboriginal artist Sarrita King, Lightening Dreaming, 2012. I chose Sarrita’s painting to accompany this post because when the actuality of Truth dawns, it can feel as though one has been simultaneously struck and illuminated by lightening.
