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.

Luminosity is Information

intensity extensity                         sky and expanse

                                  mind settles

into its  ownmostness.

luminosity is information            concept, disinformation.

pathways imply direction            but location has no place in space

direction implies destination      but there are no such agendas


communication without implication: tree sky table earth sofa fruit   curve of arm and cheek

    the simple memory                       eye, face, touch, tender



                                                              from           form less ness to

                                                               mind’s trans     lucence      ing.


Communication implies an ‘other’, but implication is only rumor. The touch, line of feeling, tender love drawn from eye to form, feeling, into births, myths of name and form, magnolia blossoms and the warmth of summer nights … all these are, and are not, and both and neither whose facticity undoes, unmakes, unknows rumor, implication. .

Some mystery becomes display of pre-ontological symbols,        wonder’s patterning.
Mind becomes dimensionality     -->  -->  -->   tree sofa  earth  wife  fruit  table  father.

 Dimensionality implies direction -> direction implies agenda

->  implies evolution                    but       this  simple  presence-ing                       is  not

so complex.          Mind,

                                                              a country for appearance.


*Afterthought: A country for appearance. *The manner in which the ceaselessly open vastness of pure mystery becomes a dimensionality, in which appearance rises and falls as the dynamic of mystery ‘itself’, is exactly what is ‘known’ by the sage.

 By ‘known’ is meant lived .... by ‘lived’ is meant something more mysterious than birth and death …. and what is not meant is bit or piece of intellectual knowledge. One can ‘be’ this mystery but never know it as proposition or concept (and even ‘be’ is impossible since it is beyond ‘being’ or ‘non-being’ .... out here (which is no-where) language falls apart  without its glue of ‘to be’ of ‘is’ and ‘is not’.

 To know in ‘the biblical sense’.

 *Luminosity pervades the expanse .... the expanse is created by the pervasion .... concept is perversion of pervasion but luminosity is knowing without concept – a luminous ignorance.
