teachings of a modern spiritual adept

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.

the power of Not Now

1 ground, 2 paths, 2 results: From utter mystery comes the one (sattva), from the one come the two (rajas and tamas), from the two come the ten thousand things (variegated perceptions framed by dualistic conception) - or - from utter mystery AwarenessAppearance knowing the possibility of knowing and appearing without 1 or 2 or many or none ... just mystery framed in mythologies. - t.k.

"Signifying nothing" - what is the existentialist’s nightmare is the realizer’s joy. Appearance as performance art, a living mythology of awareness where distinction between artist, art, and audience is non-existnet. Ongoing construction deconstruction of this massive installation piece and without the faintest implication of Being. - t.k.

Appearance does not imply Being; it seems it might, but that is only a shallow reading. The unborn wisdom mind does not deny appearance; it only denies birth. For this, one must explore fundamental questions with methodologies more subtle than language architectures built on the superstition of the verb 'to be.' Meditation is the ruthless destroyer of conceptuality's irrational beliefs. - t.k

My little hut amidst a field of white and dark lines. When mind is at ease in the expanse of non-dimensionality, then perception itself becomes delight. This morning's daybreak scatters sunlight across the open and mind shatters like a cup dropped on the kitchen floor - each fragment a moment outside past, future, even that concept "Now." Ha ha ha, 'the now' is not a time one can live in ... it is a concept one can let go of.
