Feel inside what is always still; just look; stillness in the midst of turmoil; a sense of being; stillness fills everything; it reveals itself as the mother of all things; thoughts, hopes, desires as obstacles; like the centre of the wheel that does not move; trust like a child; stillness is the content in all containers; sensations blind of sensing source; everything is simply existing; it is not separate from you; “I am that stillness”; don’t fall into believing in any objectivity; omnipresent void; when you meet with conditions: relax; every experience is perfect; the Buddha nature has been with you all the time; but the people of the world do not awake to it; they are attached to names; they do not feel the brilliance of the source; what is the nature of the senses? There is nowhere which is outside of the Buddha mind
What is the Buddha? Only come to know the nature of your mind; letting go noise in the mind; judgements, prejudices, opinions; depression caused by ideas; even though we do not know; let go of all thoughts; quality of void; search ends in sorrow; realize that which is not changing; changes are concepts; even let go of bliss; source is beyond even bliss; leave everything behind; there comes big love in your heart – even leave that; stare into this bottomless bottom; no self and no other; even beyond thinking and no-thinking; empty of any self nature; there are no enlightened men and no ignorant men; you become that which is everything; beyond existence and non-existence; science is dealing with illusions; pull away from sense perception; be quiet and stay as heart;
Beneath the surface of grief; the one mind is the reality behind moods, thoughts, sensation, perceptions; the only thing that really exists; identification with form is grief; mind is void; the neutral light sent through a prism; no confusion and evil in the mind’s substance; what this that does not get dark or bright? What is it in you that is never tired? Only the body gets tired; what is the deep sense of sameness? Buddha is not a person – just like Christ; we are projecting on these forms; we don’t see beyond appearance; feel the perfection here now; just relax, not identifying with anything; the fleeting appearances of the mind is the tempting devil;
About 4 years old we make the private mind our home; this is not true; therapy tries to fix the private mind which is the problem; connection on the level of body, mind and self; we are one; solidity of the self; nothing is going anywhere; birth and death are ideas in the form; look with empty eyes without labels; only trust will take you there; labelling gives a certain feeling of control; labels and concepts make feelings; the more feelings the more struggling queues up; psychiatric hospitals label you; feelings are movements; movements are closer to the truth than labels; you are the movement; when you are caught up – stop and meet it; ask what is deeper than this; deepening towards peace and clarity; whatever is just is
Nukunu was born in Denmark in 1947. He holds a Bachelor in Philosophy and a Master in Social Science. He has worked as a psychotherapist and given lectures on Gestalt, Psychodrama, Primal Therapy, NLP and meditation for 30 years. Over that period of time he was a student of living teachers like Osho Rajneesh, Punjaji, Maharaji and ShantiMayi.
After a radical awakening experience in March 1995 his work gradually changed and became focused on transmitting the non-dual. This work is the most important in his Satsangs, courses and meditation retreats. Although he doesn’t belong to any religion or particular spiritual path, he uses what he likes in the different spiritual traditions.
About his own awakening he says: “I had been looking and searching here and there, often desperate for something. My heart was screaming for a fulfilment that was missing. I crossed many paths and I committed myself wholeheartedly everytime. I did what I could to a point where all efforts dropped away. I did not know what more to do. I did not decide to stop the effort! It is more right to say that it stopped by itself. I was just here and now, present, because the search had stopped.
One morning, on the balcony of a little guesthouse in Rishikesh, sipping my morning coffee, enjoying the beautiful Himalayan Mountains, the door opened by itself. Something happened that I could never have preconceived. In one split second I was totally uprooted, the person I used to rely on as my life and my center, was in that moment reduced to just a thought-form among other thoughts and for the first time I experienced a real contentment.
It was not an understanding, it was ‘innerstanding’ everything. It was a shift in consciousness. A by-product of this shift was a gratitude beyond description to everything and everybody that I had come across, because I had a deep, unshakeable knowing that every situation and person that I had encountered so far in my life had been pieces in the jigsaw puzzle called Nukunu! I cannot say for sure why this happened to me that day. Suddenly this discontinuity for no apparent reason. I would rather say that it happened because of the absence of a reason. There was no effort, striving, desiring in the mind that morning, and that desirelessness was not a product of my activity, because if that had been the case, there would still have been an effort! It simply cannot be done, because the very doing prevents it. It is more like an involuntary let go!"
