To exist means to be something, a thing, a feeling, a thought, an idea. All existence is particular. Only being is universal, in the sense that every being is compatible with every other being. Existences clash, being – never. Existence means becoming, change, birth and death and birth again, while in being there is silent peace.

— Nisargadatta Maharaj, from the classic ‘I am That‘, p 62

      Thank you for your comment.
      No, have’nt heard of John Wheeler.
      Will google his site.

      Well, did Google his site.
      Looks good. But it is one thing to articulate the Natural State and quite another to be able to abide in that state. There is no way that one can check this out from a website. One will have to personally interact with him to find out.
      I am not for a moment suggesting that it is not genuine, I am only saying that one will have to meet him in person.
