Bite size teachings across 30 years.

For 30 years t.k. has offered radical spiritual teachings on the divine nature of non-dual contemplation and realization. Enlightened mind here and now, born from this culture, addressing the issues of this time and place t.k. offers transmission through countless forms - words being one of them. Here are some short pieces from his teachings over the last 30 years.

abiding in the Nothingness State

This mantle of utter mystery enrobes the body born for Love and wraps the world in silent beauty. Untouched by death, or birth, this mind abides as no-thing within every-thing ... displayed in body, footsteps, hand's touch, and the simple infinity of Love.... and just as dying will be my wedding night appearance has become the bedchamber of my joy. - t.k.

The Nothingness state is the utter destruction of localizable Point of View as "self." It is where mind comes to rest in its ownmostness, a pure mystery beyond Being or non-being. Its radiance is functionality as knowingness - a play of inseparable emptiness clarity called AwarenessAppearance taking place no'where' and no'time'. - t.k. (talks from the Nothingness State)

Abiding in the Nothingness State is not an abiding (or a 'state') at all. It is the very fact that there is no 'one' and no 'thing' who/that 'abides' anywhere. Just this absence of abiding, or any self/thing to abide ... wed to the play of appearing ... is the fact of all phenomena abiding in the Nothingness State. - t.k. (talks from the Nothingness State) 

Heartbreak as vast as sky ... this love birth death joy sorrow beauty terror ... possibility of freedom, missed opportunities ... heartbreak as vast as sky. To return again and again in guises of loves vow, without defense or option. Present only. - t.k.

Every flavor, every nuance of humanness, is uplifted in Vajrayana practice ... like a spark caught up in a divine updraft and carried into the heart of the sun. Consciousness, perception, form, feeling, appearances all become wisdom awareness intrinsically free in a manner that embodies, ennobles, enworlds divine qualities. - t.k.
