Unless the 'I' thought is looked into and removed It is not going to make that much difference whether we become great meditators Whether we live in an ashram Or whether we develop high spiritual powers . If we continue with these things whilst retaining the old identity we are missing the main point of self inquiry Which is to bring about a radical shift in identity . So rather than striving to become a better practitioner or an advanced meditator look into the nature of the practitioner, Ask, who is the meditator get to the root of the I-dentity find out if it is real find out if it exists in the way that it appears to exist . Otherwise, we may become great practitioners We may develop highly advanced spiritual powers We may even attract thousands of followers But if we are not ree of the 'I' thought We will not have removed the virus . This is the Heart of Jnana This is the beauty and directness of inquiry To find out what we are and what we are not To discover what is always true And to know ourselves to be that! PAUL HURCOMB

you guys rock xxx Be moved.... move with us. Creating a little bit of AcroYoga magic in St Giles House! The video was filmed by Luke Albert, a stunning lifestyle film maker/photographer. Performed by Eugene Vegan Butcher & Pip Elysium. About the house: Shaftesbury Esate, a beautiful 5000 acre area of grass, woodland and trees surrounding this 500 year old mansion called St Giles House. the dominant presence in this room were without doubt the 8 huge portraits hanging on the walls. the biggest portrait was the 1st Earl of Shaftsbury.. a philosopher who was very influential in the Enlightenment period of philosophy and most well known for introducing the notion that we have and intrinsic sense of right and wrong.. he helped form the first political party called "the wigs" to stop the King\Royal Family being able to do what ever they liked in terms of taxing people etc.. his work also had a big influence on the declaration of independence The 1st Earl of Shaftbury's right hand man was John Locke a physician and another philosopher regarded as one of the most influential enlightenment thinkers.. A few quotes from John Locke: "We are like chameleons, we take our hue and the color of our moral character, from those who are around us" "New opinions are always suspected, and usually opposed, without any other reason but because they are not already common" "I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts." "There is frequently more to be learned from the unexpected questions of a child than the discourses of men." "No man's knowledge here can go beyond experience" "What worries you, masters you" John Locke also lived at St Giles House and arranged the education, marriages and of the children and grandchildren of 1st Earl.. one such grandchild was the 7th Earl of Shaftesbury.. who became a social reformer and philanthropist.. who did a lot of work for child poverty.. he dedicated his life to reforming laws to stop children being used for dangerous jobs, like being sent down mines, made to climb up chimneys and in factories etc.. he died at a young age due to the fact he had spent so much time in the same dangerous environments as the children he was trying to help which took its toll on his health.. ------- Music was also composed by a local artist in Devon called Matthew Bailey.
