Who Am I?
in our hearts there lies a source. It can be likened
to the center of a circle, from which we can see in all directions,
and then from which no other position can give us such a vantage
point. This is also called the Path of Inner Silence. It is the
Medicine of One.
Go directly to the source of all truth in your spiritual center of
silence, your heart; for the shortest distance between two points
is a direct line, and a mystical truth lies hidden behind this geometrical
axiom. Accept it, and the Direct Path is already beneath your feet.
There is no need to seek it elsewhere. The only Method is surrender
to the center of that circle. 'A single step begins the journey of
a thousand miles', but if this first step is not taken, the traveler
will remain at his starting point, outside thte circle, grappling
with one method after another. The one true method is to be this
circle, honoring all movement as spacious compassion.
Without the knowledge of 'who we are' we remain spiritually immovable.
The Direct Path can be likened to a mighty river, quietly and majestically
flowing to the infinite ocean of Nirvana , Brahman, the ultimate
and unique aim of every being. Yogas, religions, sects, philosophical
systems, occult and spiritual societies, all can be thought of as
minor streams flowing into and yielding up their waters to the same
great river, and from then onwards having the same straight course
to the ocean. Whoever knows of the hidden Direct Path will not waste
time following lesser ways. All efforts will be concentrated on the
one idea 'How to enter the great current which flows directly to
the ocean." M.S.
and all labels applied to me throughout this web site are keywords
to help you find what you are seeking. They are nothing more
than that. For in the end this "i" that we sometimes
cling to so desperately does not exist. It is nothing but the
movement of thoughts and the process of thinking. Seek this
thinker and what you will find is nothing but big sky, a oneness
through which everything moves, you thinking, your emotions,
your body, your very soul.What is real is the dark background
of being, The Great Mystery that the images of the mind projects
onto. No different than the very screen you stare at now. This
thinker is similar to the question "Who
am I?"above superimposed over the light. But even the
light shines forth from the background of this beingness.
. . . that is the one certainty in life . . . Hang on to what
you think you are, what you do, what you own, what has been
and you suffer. The tightness of the grip is the measure of
the fear and becomes the measure of the suffering. This fear
is most often what is unfinished in our Soul's history. A history
which transcends what you call your present life. Who you are
now is the temporary personality. You can think of the Soul
as your permanent personality. So all this unfinished business
are like Old Dreams in the underworld that create the world
we live in. We often believe its happening to us, but it is
this unconscious designing force that is creating our world.

There is nothing to seek but
the seeker. You can not find what you already are and have never
lost. Nor can you name it, define it, hold onto it. For me this
is essential to the shamanism and spirituality that I embrace and
practice. You must constantly question all the assumptions about
yourself and note with a smile when the small "i" finds
safety, pleasure, power, and value in anything that comes from
without and inflates the little i.
The no method of Sedona
This big I unites
the sky and the earth. In being what you are in truth you are the
Medicine of One. Inquiry, meditation, discussion and teaching is
a component woven in through out the retreats and some tour experiences,
depending on individual needs. Each person brings a new world to
be present with. We embark together to the circle within that is
the Medicine of One.
