THE PEN ...A WAY OF WRITING



Click here to enlarge
Writing has been considered as an art form in many cultures since time immemorial, not just regarding the shapes and styles of letters and pictograms, but also as an expression of meaning.

‘The Pen?takes this idea further by looking at the in depth process of this art, showing where the thought behind the words comes from and how an inherent state of essential mind may bridge the gap between conflicting perspectives.

It is life’s greatest purpose to be able to use this tool as a practical application in our daily lives as it is the very core of our nature, an intrinsic awareness that is pure, stainless and simply knowing its essential nature, yet containing the greatest potential of the human being.

As an allegory of this, in the text itself the writer talks directly to a pen that is about to write something, telling it to place mind in a natural state of awareness and let the words pour forth through its nib so that this perfect state may never be lost in the words that arise on the blank page, but just be transformed into them.

This monologue continues to encourage the pen, as the writer, to thus echo this ultimate mode of being into the mind of the reader of the text and in this way achieve the highest aim of writing by coming from a totally unbiased viewpoint so as not to confuse the reader with different perspectives and individual judgments.

It is emphasised that its sole aim must be to express what it has to say accurately, so that what emerges through it will be pure and clear from its source awareness rather than fabricated with its own points of view.

‘The Pen …A Way of Writing?is a revised edition of the first section of ‘The Rainbow Bridge…directly perceiving emptiness whilst holding appearance?/a>, a comprehensive compilation conveying an overall understanding of the nature of awareness.

The Pyramid Spiral... Dance of the Five Elements



Click here to enlarge

During the time that the author was living in Nepal (2001-2007) and studying various meditation techniques as well as an overall science of the mind with her Tibetan Buddhist spiritual masters there, she visited the ‘Caves of Immortality’ at Maratika, in Eastern Nepal. Unaware of the sub-conscious effect of this journey on her mind, she was subsequently asked to make a film about life in the Muktinath valley, high up in the trans-Himalayan region of Mustang. Wanting to make the layout of the film more interesting, she attempted to make it "dance" in a circular way rather than following an ordinary linear layout. This, and something lying dormant in her mind from the trip to Maratika, resulted in her creating an unusual geometrical art piece that was the offshoot of this non-typical timeline. Later she entitled this piece of work, 'The Circle of Immortality'. Visuals of this simple to construct, yet complex image were added into the film and it was also given the same title.

Through an in depth commentary on the movie’s narration, “The Pyramid Spiral… Dance of the Five Elements” describes this art piece in detail, looking at the process of the manifestation of appearance from its very subtlest to grossest state. This step-by step description of how the five elements literally dance each and every aspect of existence into being, connects us to the vital process of what is really occurring in our minds and around us in the world at large at every moment. It is a journey of sacred geometry, whereby we connect inter-dimensionally with the entire spectrum of existence, yet stay right here in this moment with the whole of time at our fingertips.

Muktinath, Secret Treasure of Annapurna… The Rainbow Bridge



Click here to enlarge

Second Edition of "The Rainbow Bridge"

This book contains the only existing compiled historical, cultural and spiritual account of Muktinath, which is located high up in the Annapurna mountain range of central Nepal. This Trans Himalayan valley, a treasure waiting to be revealed in its full glory, has a history going back to the Jurassic period when the sea of Tethys covered this land and even today, remnants of this era can be seen in the form of remarkable sea fossils that are still found lying in its riverbeds. Pilgrims have been making their way here for millennia to worship the holy fire that appears flaming on water, stone and earth and these days, trekkers from all over the world pass through Muktinath on the Annapurna Circuit route. But what lies behind its snow peaked mountain tops, cliff caves, deep river basins and small temple complexes dotted around the valley in little villages that still maintain a traditional culture? For this is just the surface of Muktinath. In this unusual travelogue of sorts, the history, culture and spiritual aspects of the place are written down in an historical narrative, whilst its deeper meaning is revealed in the verses of 'The Rainbow Bridge', along with a detailed commentary that describes a multi-faceted vision of awareness, the heart essence of 'Muktinath'.

The Rainbow Bridge



Click here to enlarge

“The Rainbow Bridge... directly perceiving emptiness whilst holding appearance” is a book about life’s most important treasure, that which we all contain within us and that we may choose to use if we were to know how to access it.

Presenting us with this most important aspect, together with the way to locate this essential key to life, it explains from A to Z how we should refocus the mind to use its power of awareness in its most useful and beneficial way.

                            The author, Susan lived in Nepal for 6 years (2001-2007), studying and practising the vast spectrum of great teachings and spiritual practices of the Vajrayana path of Tibetan Buddhism under her teacher, His Eminence Chogye Trichen Rinpoche, himself a Master of Masters.

Having been sent by him to the high Himalayan valley of Muktinath in 2005 and observing her environs with the special techniques that had been taught to her by him, Susan enters a kind of sub-strata reality in this remote place, where the division between gross, hard-core reality blends easily into a more subtle space of existence. After returning to Kathmandu and shaken in a new way by what had happened, she set about to write it down.

The book principally describes the journey in a series of meditations that help to enhance a state of awareness where we no longer perceive a subjective ‘I’ looking at an objective ‘other’, but are aware that this ‘I’ and the ‘other’ are actually appearing from the one same mind.

Using the rainbow allegory and paralleling it with our spread of different states of consciousness, the book is divided into seven sections, each one taking the reader step by step across a bridge to gap the divide between a state of duality and that of unity.

One’s intrinsic awareness that is naked and without fabrications of mind - mind’s pure clear essence, is that which we are aiming to find within our ordinary state of mind. This is usually disturbed by the many waves of emotions and perceptive states that it habitually plays with, but when that same troubled mind is stilled to its limpid aspect, it may see itself clearly and without tainted impressions.

This is the key to all meditation practice and may be termed as both the foundation as well as the crown of all methods.

A holistic feeling of artistry is enhanced in the book’s layout and design that is also integral to the overall message as well as a plethora of unusual colour photographs that both enhance and complement the text on its accompanying pages.

RECOMMENDATIONS

“I was traveling in Dharamsala after an intensive meditation retreat when this book accidentally landed in my hands and its message spoke so loudly that I could not put it down, and still cannot. Written in beautiful poetic form, and expanded on with explanative commentary, the message steers the reader to the author’s transformational experience high in the Himalayas. This is a must read for those seeking true perception of the beauty around us.”

Drops of Being



Click here to enlarge

‘Drops of Being' is the story of a journey of life, traversing realms of consciousness.

Through its underlying tale, this fiction of 200 pages is first and foremost a book that inspires and motivates us to achieve higher levels of success in all aspects of our lives, enticing us to respond to the call of our natural gift or rather, talent and to find the courage to follow its path.

The entire frame of the story comprises of two letters that have been written from a woman to a man. It is obvious that they are close as she writes intimately to him about her journey.

In the first letter she specifically describes a time when she arrived by chance at a small building on the side of a dusty road in a downtrodden country. The place is not named, but this may be considered as the central location of the book as it is from where stories that carry the book’s meaning are told through different personages.

At the onset, we are introduced to these story-telling characters, who are sitting at a table laden with food and drink inside this building, which happens to be a kind of resting place for weary travelers. All the people at the table have the manner of wise beings and are of different appearances, both male and female.

One woman gets up to speak and the first section of the book includes her description of the world from the beginning of time to where we are now, pointing to the continual battle between our desire for gain over others that consequently leads to a failed appreciation of ‘Earth’ as the mother provider for all beings.

 THE GUIDE  THE STAIRCASE  THE CONTAINER

This section of the book is entitled ‘The Guide’, whose symbol is a staff, a reoccurring motif representing the aspect of ‘teacher of life’ throughout the book.

In the second letter, whose place of action continues inside the resting place, a second woman gets up to speak. Instead of discussing worldly matters, she points towards the path of spiritual understanding that we must cross in order to answer all questions related to our existence.

This section of the book is entitled ‘The Staircase’ and analogizes the ascent one makes upon the path of enlightenment.

The third section is approached from an entirely different perspective as we meet the person reading the letters. It is entitled, ‘The Container’ and we come to learn that each of the places described in the book are actually one and the same place. This finally brings us to appreciate that all appearance actually has a nonlocal (ie. it is not somewhere else) presence.

Ultimately aiming to inspire the reader to search his/her passion of interest and to dive into that wholeheartedly with such force so that one’s greatest talents and abilities are not forsaken by the drudgery of the necessity to simply earn money to survive, “Drops of Being” is a book about life, pointing to the natural suffering of all beings in the earthly realm, a schoolroom through which we learn and gradually ascend the path of enlightenment to full realization of who we are and why we are here.

Focusing on this need to find our heart quest and pursue it with the passion of commitment in order to be completely fulfilled, DROPS refer to our relative sense of existence as individuals within the world, whilst BEING refers to the ultimate knowledge of our existence as an interconnected part of absolutely everything in the cosmos.
