Merry Christmas!


THE GIFT by William Samuel (1970)

At this moment it seems to me that we have a most important "mission." It is to discover and live the Christ-Love we are that we may be found to be the comforter of this world of images that appears within the Selfhood that Awareness is. "As I be lifted up," says the Christ, "all mankind shall be lifted likewise and drawn unto Me."

We give the gift of Childlikeness to our world.We give the gift of unbounded joy. We give the gift of tenderness that warms the Heart and brings the soft breath of happiness, the tender touch and the unrestrained tear of gratitude. We tell the story of Identity. We tell the weary who they are. We show them the Kingdom of their heritage. We hand them their scepter and point to the limitless Light of Love which is their dominion. We look up and out and "show unto mankind his uprightness." This is the Father's business, so let us be at it.

This Christmas Season finds a New Star in the Heavens--this one to tell those with ears to hear of the New Jerusalem wherein there is neither sorrow nor darkness, nor age nor death.

The Holy City is already the fact, you know.

Isness is the totality of all Being within which there is nothing to make it dual, and we do not have to wait to see this fact!

While there presently appear to be an inside and an outside, a here and a not-here, a now and a not-now, all these things are only aspects of the Whole, the All---for which this Awareness "we" are is the activity. Mind (1) aware (2) of Itself (3) is a Holy Trinity to Itself. "Itself" knows these three are One Mind, One Love.

Well, this started out as a simple Christmas greeting. Don't you forget that all the carols and bright lights, decorations and happy children are for you! Who else is the Christ?

Happy Christmas, William Samuel (1970 )


thanks for everything...
and all these peeps here
that don't exist but keep
on peeping...i love it.

and i hope it was ok that
i ate most of the chocolates
already...the wrappers were just
so appealing, so colorful
and i thought, well, i justified
later, like a second ago: we are
all why keep a little
piece of ilusional separation
between chocolate orange creams
and this.

lots of seasonal, xmassy and
nondualisticallidocious wishes
for those who think they're here,
those who think they are not and
anyone who didn't fall through any
gaps..and still might read this,
yes, you!

lots of love,

A message from the Open Awareness Study Group, which is as close to a "must join" as I've ever seen, and which may be visited here:  

Merry Christmas!

As we close out 2009, we extend our thanks to Greg Goode, who will complete his month on December 31, 2010. These commitments require a huge investment of time by the group leader and we thank Greg for his time and remarkable insights. Those who appreciated this series of dialogues can get Greg's current book, Standing as Awareness, either thru the StillnessSpeak's store by clicking here:

or by visiting or, the magnificent publisher website of Julian Noyce.

Further assistance is available directly from Greg through his website, We encourage you to seek Greg's advice when needed.

In the next weeks, will post a free interview between Greg Goode and Chris Hebard, of StillnessSpeaks. This interview and a much more in depth one will later appear at

Starting on January 1st, we will welcome Scott Kiloby. Visit Scott's website at Scott's accessible, sweet style of interaction with teachers, writers and friends has become a trademark. Among those friends, Greg Goode and Jeff Foster both highly recommend Scott and his approach, high praise in our humble opinion.

From the Kiloby website: "Enlightenment is not reserved for gurus or available only after years of practice or seeking. It is your birthright. It is not a special state, experience, thought, or emotion that one has to find or maintain. The word "enlightenment" is merely a label pointing to the direct and immediate recognition of timeless awareness. This awareness holds the key to your real identity. It reveals that there is no separate self. It reveals that all boundaries are illusory including the boundaries between people, religions, programs, paths, groups, and nations."

We strongly recommend that you read Scott's best known book, Living Realization to discover his unqiue style. We think you will enjoy it and it will assist you with inital questions. The PDF download e-book is available here in our Files section for free.

Please let your friends know that we have the pleasure of having Scott in our company for the month of January. This notice will also be made at the StillnessSpeaks website.

WE hope you enjoy Scott Kiloby this month.

Welcome, Scott!
