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.

Before Being was I am

Before Being was I am. Right there in mystery beyond the words expanse, emptiness, unborn, Buddha ……. And, right now, before mind confirms its superstition of self -I am not. Missing from form feeling perception consciousness formation, unfound in being or beyond…… and yet this dream, this scattering of Love’s alphabet animates the flesh, turns the vectors of red and blue to tenderness and remembering ……. and so, beyond 'Am' and 'Am Not', we are


this net of dreaming, tenderness of light’s small cathedrals,

congregation of syllables,

                                              temple of nerve blood bone   and

joy soaked with the terrible cost of love.

What, or who, could have whispered into twilight such treachery -

the notion of the ‘lost companion’. The lie that shapes the Heart’s


Sand, wet with morning dew, slides under my foot. The grass, now

becoming straw in the first autumn coolness, brushes against pant

leg.  I remember your face. Dawn light scatters, swims through the

sky       the scent of moss opens doorways of wonderment          and

the lie of forgetting is forgotten.



These ties, the handcuffs of tender affection, dream us me you world

into  through as      appearing.

This  congregation  of  beauty   

                                                and your eyes are reason enough.
