Selections from the I Am Above site:


Always the same   You know,
the day will come and
you will go,
you know,
I have fed up with all that there
comes from nothing,
even taste it hasn't

Whirlpools at the abyss
Smashes all form,
Dissolves and makes loathsome,
The day that's been,
And you go,
And you know,
That tomorrow also,
Is goanna be the same

~ ~ ~  

Cells of blood  

The blood rages through the body,
And Compresses in its flow,
In accelerated circularity
and intense respiration,
Faintly beating
At the crawling edge,
Gathers in my head
And bursting in silence,
Out from his cells the blood
Runs free.

~ ~ ~  


I step and watch
as the ground under my feet
into a tapestry of living colors.
My eyes roll over, inverting
inwards swallowed,
like a hammer smiting and carving
that great bubble.
With sparks I foresee,
and the distance is long
too inwards,
surrounded by warm fluid,
encircled by thick, firm crust
that floats on it's smoldering core

Golden flakes
decorate its borders,
I can stand it no longer,
the choking grips,
the pushing shoves,
out, out!
Repetitive circles,
without a pause,
and swallowed and strangled again and again,
Holding the hammer
and chiseling with strength,
each blow hurts me more and more,
But I must
Be opened wide,
Be discharged,
Be born.

    "Embodied Awakening"
Nondual Wisdom and Psychotherapy
Conference 2007

October 25-28, 2007
California Institute of Integral Studies
1453 Mission Street, San Francisco
Presented by CIIS's Integral Counseling Psychology Program and the Center for Timeless Wisdom
Co-Sponsored by JFK, ITP, and ATP
This annual cutting-edge conference hosts leading therapists and teachers who are exploring the confluence of nondual wisdom and psychotherapy. How does psychotherapy change when therapists and clients begin to awaken to and embody their true nature as open, lucid Awareness-and discover this Awareness to be inseparable from the whole of life?

This is to inform to all seekers in the path of Self-Realization, that we just launched a comprehensive portal to dessiminate the message of sri Nisargadatta Maharaj.

Please visit

The site is mainly focussed on the teachings, talks, quotes and reminiscences of Nisargadatta Maharaj and other notable saintly masters such as Ramana Maharshi, Ramesh Balsekar, Papaji and others. It is our aim to bring a clean, well designed and informative resource for all advatin seekers mainly in the path of direct self-enquiry.

This site currently includes, in addition to others, a spiritual library containing nearly 90 online texts (mostly downloadable) about the teachings of revered advaita masters such as maharaj, ramana maharshi, swami sivananda etc. And Upanishads and Gita are also included.

Please visit
In the very near future, we are willing to bring a series of articles related to the teachings of Nisargadatta Maharaj, Ramana Maharshi, Advaita Vedanta and our ancient wisdom of Upanishads.

We seek your support, suggestions and encouragment to serve the community of advaita seekers with this small website.

Thank you for your support.
