“If you come across a sage
who has realized his true nature,
you will not be required to do anything
in the way of spiritual disciplines.
This is because through his teachings,
he will reveal your true nature,
as by placing a mirror before you.”
The chief reason for unending confusion in the pursuit of truth is the sense that one has already understood, and is simply lacking the direct experience commensurate with one’s knowledge. What feels like the cusp of enlightenment is in fact the heart of ignorance, from which most localized conceptualizations of Awakeness will never escape. Whenever Awakeness-as-seeking is self-subjected to that experience, it will almost always require apparent intercession by a perceived outside party if Awakeness is ever to become knowingly conscious of itself, much less remain so.
“Forget serious teachers and even crazy wisdom teachers! Fred Davis is enlightenment’s court jester, reformed rake, televangelist, and grits-talking magus all in one. He’s the real deal–and I should know, after a career researching consciousness, seeking, and having my own satori and nondual experiences. From years of headbanging to recapture the awakening I’d lost through a severe drug reaction, I stumbled across him–and I awakened.
“Fred’s simplicity, directness, humor, rapscallion past, oddball humility, and Southern accent tell exactly how to awaken. His no-nonsense approach is stripped to the essentials, with plain talk that’s right on point. Just do it. If you follow Fred’s instructions, you will come home to yourself. He’s the world’s most accessible teacher, and you’ve got everything to gain.”
“I hear from Fred Davis that you are soon to be doing an interview with him, so I just wanted to let you know, (and I am happy for you to mention this is your interview) that yesterday I had a two hour Skype session with him where he put me through his unique ‘Living Method’ of enquiry. And I just wanted to tell you, Rick, that it was absolutely fantastic. It was the clearest way of directly pointing to the I AM of my Source that I have ever experienced. I think he is an amazing Teacher. I already felt that I was pretty well awakened and clear about who I AM NOT and somewhat clear about who I AM, but since his session I have huge clarity about who I AM.”
