"What's Wrong with Right Now ...
Unless You Think About It?"
-by "Sailor" Bob Adamson
"Sailor" Bob is, in a word, the Real Deal. Like his Teacher, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (whose Teachings were popularized in the book "I Am That" from Acorn Press), Bob points unwaveringly to what is Real ... Are you Present and aware? Can you ever say you do not exist? There must be awareness itself to say 'I am not aware!"
At the same time Bob shows us what is NOT real. "Are you separate, an entity? Find it and show it to me." This approach is in the time-tested tradition called "Advaita," yet Bob steadfastly refuses the title of Guru and eschews the whole idea of a Guru and a Disciple as ignorance and duality.
The guy is Bang ON.
So what is a visitor or reader left with? Initially, A great and Wise FRIEND ... a Guide to the Reality ... beyond the dream of "me in a world." ULTIMATELY? Nothing at all. That is what we are ... No Thing. Arising as Every Thing. You are all that is. There is no actual "separation" unless there is a thought of separation ... and when the thought is seen as ONLY a though, like clouds in a perfect empty sky ...the seeker evaporates and it's all over. Then Livingness itself is a celebration.
The word Advaita means "Not Two," which is a rigorous pointer to what Bob calls "One-Without-A-Second" or simply, THAT. All is That. That thou Art.
I spent a few days with Bob in September 2005, and he left 'me' with no Guru, no Teaching, nothing to remember, and nothing to do. (Who would do anything?) In other words, Bob leaves us without US or ME or OTHER ... just AS That, which was sought since the dream of a separate person arrived at around age three. And that is That. Then as doubts and a stubborn refusal to look happened after I got back to California, a few phone calls with Bob (he is very generous with his time) and discussions with a few of his other students, "The Penny Dropped.) And a big laugh bubbled up as I relized there never WAS a penny or anywhere for dropping to happen. An now, alwways Now, nothing is wrong anymore, period. What an incredible gift from no one to no one.
Get to Melbourne and see Bob if you can. He is a rare Treasure in a world of Half-Baked "Teachers of Oneness."
With Bob, in person, via DVD or CD, and in this book (as well his other book "Presence Awareness), you may find that the seeker gradually (or suddenly) fades away, and what is left is Loving Being Awakeness, just this, and nothing else.
