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 spontaneously pervades Openness

Beingness has, as its frolic, Becoming. Beingness loves to Be and so it becomes this and that , worlds, realms beings within those – both container and contained. In becoming Beingness becomes mixed like milk with water until one can not be separated from the other – in this Beingness is lost, forgotten and only what “is” is seen, known, remembered.

Beingness itself is a mixture also – openness and luminosity.

Divine Openness is known by body and mind as unutterable mysterious purity and silence – a mystery confounding every word, every language-ing, every concept. In the knowing of Openness everything and every thing is unknown . It is called Openness because it is irreducible to any thingness and is always opening out-within-from-of-in-as whatever might Be or appear and yet is never reducible to those things.

Openness is neither an Absolute nor an essence – it is simply not reducible to any concept, experience, thing, state ….. in its mystery the mind becomes silent and the mouth mute. Openness can not “be known” or even experienced – it can not be reduced to something that can be known or experienced and there can remain no knower or experiencer when Openness is realized.

Divine Luminosity spontaneously pervades Openness – no cause, no source, no origin, reason, first moment. Luminosity’s pervasion across expanse is unstoppable bliss brillaince and it is the origin of space ...... and the process of its frolic as appearing in shapes and colors is the origin of time. Luminosity is held within the womb space of Openness and Openness shows its ownmost face of glory in the play of Luminosity.

Together Openness and Luminosity become the warp and woof of Being and appearing, knowing and known – they become and unbecome in the womb space of Openness. Openness is not reducible to thing or quality, is not absolute or essence …. Yet, is an Openness that Allows …. allows Being and becoming.

Because Openness and the clear light Luminosity of the divine have no quality shape form location substance and yet give rise to all qualities shapes forms locations and substances it is very easy for the Openness and Luminosity to be missed, forgotten - in the becoming and being this or that.

Nothing new need be made, one need not go somewhere – the Open and Luminous divine is everywhere and everywhen – the context of content that is Being and Becoming. One must develop eyes that can see, ears that can hear …. The content of Being and Becoming arise, resolve, appear, disappear in the womb of unutterable mystery purity and luminous spontaneous playfulness.

First one falls from the content of Becoming into the re-knowing of the expanse of Beingness and then from the content that IS Beingness into the context that is unutterable divine mystery. This is what our body mind longs for – it is the real meaning feeling of what we call home whenever we use that word.
