James Traverse has over 40 years of experience in the art and science of yoga. He is a yoga educator and writer who communicates the direct approach to understanding your true nature. This experiential means, which is founded on a switchover from conceiving to purely perceiving, flowered principally out of James’ studies with his teacher, Jean Klein, who initiated him in the ways of Advaita Vedanta and Kashmiri Shaivism. His other influences include the works of J. Krishnamurti, David Bohm, Rumi, Adi Shankaracharya, Ramana Maharshi, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Atmananda Krishnamenon and the yoga of B K S Iyengar, whose method he studied intensely for the first 15 years of his yoga journey.

Hi Gene,

Further to what you write about movement/unrest;
When a position is taken relative to the
flow, movement forms into pattern, design. I can only
act according to this pattern.

Hi Gene/Andrew,

Interesting message Gene.

Do we need space to be 'other than' whole, space to become and move into?

It could be said that 'Iam unrest', by that I mean that there is no unrest
separate from myself. Realising that I rest!

We want pattern, order and design very much in our lives I feel, so much so
we try and control ourselves. But can there be a pattern without control,
without me. This would be a pattern without a patterner. Oneness with

Is chaos trying to make design my own?
Is order, surender to divine design.

On this I ponder this evening,

different order than the brownian-motion-like buffeting of blind unrest. It's



hi nondual cats!
is it time for holiday?
when so, pack and go!

party for felines!
feasts at night rest in the sun
always in for fun!

when it's hot, the beach...
look - the ocean is a drop
one that's within reach!

When someone calls you
stupid and foolish
you mind it.
Knowing this,
the Sages use the word

Ignorance is something
you dončt know
and when you are thinking
about what you dončt know,
what are you going
to get from it?

OOh, Ičm thinking
in order to know it,č
but the whole fallacy is
because youčre thinking
youčre not knowing it;
youčre blocking it.

Stop thinking
and start seeing;
then youčll know it.
