​​Radical Non Duality and The End of Seeking

Posted by Trey Carland on April 4, 2022 at 12:19am 0 Comments

I have not written anything since publishing my second book a year ago, but not long after publication I encountered a message that seems to have taken "my" apparent journey and leveled it. It's not a popular message and certainly not a message I would have chosen to resonate with, but there was apparently…

There Was a Time…

On the day of the takeover of the Capitol, I stopped to chat with my neighbor, who filled me in on what was happening. He asked me to say a prayer for our country, which I later did. It went a little something like this, “May we all find the peace that we seek and share that peace with the world.” Today, while reflecting on the recent events at the Capitol and the drama that continues to ensue, the impulse to write arose and here is the result:

ATTENTION AND INQUIRY

Posted by Trey Carland on November 16, 2020 at 12:01pm 0 Comments

When asked to summarize his teachings in one word, Ramana Maharshi said, “Attention.” That struck home in a deeper way the most recent time I heard it. I thought he would have said, “Silence,” because that what his preferred method of teaching. But his answer makes perfect sense. His teachings on Self-inquiry are all about directing attention from the world of thoughts and objects to the source of attention. Attention has been described as focused Awareness and is the “tool” (if we can call…

Dealing with Anxiety

Posted by Trey Carland on June 12, 2020 at 2:03pm 0 Comments

I had a nice conversation with a friend of mine who reached out for some support regarding feelings of anxiety that had become a recurring theme. It's a common feeling we've all felt at one time or another and possibly a feeling that is being triggered more frequently by all of the things going on in the world. My friend seemed to benefit from the words I shared so I thought it might be helpful to put them out there for public consumption. Though this conversation dealt specifically with…

"Don't Postpone Your Enlightenment!" a Weekend Retreat of Meditation and Inquiry at Well Being Retreat Center

February 16, 2024 at 4pm to February 18, 2024 at 1pm
"It's astonishing how long we can avoid seeing the ever-present reality of our True Nature. If I hadn't done it myself for almost 60 years, I wouldn't believe it to be possible. Illusion is so convincing that we can remain deluded for a very long time, but, fortunately, not forever. At some point Life will maneuver us into a corner where we are left with no choice but to see what we have always been. That may be called Grace."Well Being Retreat Center is offering a weekend silent Retreat led by…See More
