Intimations On Eternity
by Michael Sean Symonds
About the Book
No one is born into life as a separate body/mind/entity from the Universe - regardless of what you might think or feel, believe or understand. Our notion of duality is learned from the moment we appear to be born: we are erroneously taught to believe we are physical beings, living in a physical universe - separate from everyone and everything.
Nothing could be farther from the Truth. Frankly speaking, the idea of separation permeates all cultures; we are indoctrinated into cults of distinction. Whether that be the colour of our skin, our nationality or a particular tradition, we slice and dice reality into little chunks of division with the thoughts and beliefs we entertain and the gods and goddesses we bow down to.
While the hypnosis of this separation appears to be deep, it is our birthright to re-calibrate this perception, to un-learn what we have so unconsciously learned. Through the simplicity of Awareness itself, we can re-orientate ourselves and our understanding to the essential nature we Are. We never left home - we only appeared to abandon our home, nurtured by the stories we were told and more importantly, by the stories we continue to tell to ourselves.
As Awareness, we are as close to home as we will ever be; home is Where, Who and What We Are. As Awareness, home is here - in the now-ness of ourselves. It is here, in this present moment Awareness that life thrives as the impulse now. It is here – not in time, space or location, where we find wholeness. It is here and now that what we seek is revealed with effortless, benign, understanding.

Alternative educator? Artist? Author? Meditation instructor? S.M.G.W.M? Who is here to say with clarity & conviction what I AM? Through the use of creativity, teaching, speaking and writing I have enjoyed sharing the gifts I have inherited from others: Roxi Hermson, Leonard Orr, Deepak Chopra, Stephen Wolinsky, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Hafiz and Louise Thomson to name a few. It is the artist, free thinker, poet, advocate and friend, who has inspired this life I call my own. With image and word, in private practice, one-on-one or group facilitation, and service, that I have touched meaning, purpose and peace; something magical that lies beyond the thinking mind. It is through one-on-one indulgence of great cups of coffee and engaged conversation, the experience and expression of creativity, the silence of meditation, or the activity of snowboarding, that I have felt freedom and simplicity, that lies in the Art of Being… www.twitter.com/zenshredding
