This section is designed for teachers of non-dualism, or for people who feel they are close to ‘waking up’. These articles challenge some of our deepest held assumptions, and point out many basic misunderstandings which you, or your students, might be encountering.
The secret each article unveils is so simple that words cannot describe it. Therefore, everything that’s written below is simply meant as a signpost pointing you in the direction of an experience. This is totally different from most things we read, where we’re trying to absorb knowledge so that we can shift our paradigm.
If you read the articles below looking for truth to be revealed in the writing, you won’t find it. What you will find are little urges pointing you in the right direction – and at some point, you’ll directly experience what they are trying to point at. Just remember that they are not bestowing knowledge. They’re only bestowing nudges.
