Faces are the reflection of the soul - let the silent light shine from within


Suppose a man were all of a sudden to make his appearance here and cut your head off with a Sword!

- Hui-Chung

Behead yourself ! …. Dissolve your whole body into Vision: become seeing, seeing, seeing !


My soul has been carried away, and usually my head as well, without my being able to prevent it. 

- St. Teresa

Cover your breast with nothingness, and draw over your head the robe of non-existence. 


Give yourself utterly…. Even though the head itself must be given, why should you weep over it? 


Seeing into Nothingness - this is the true seeing, the eternal seeing. 

- Shen-Hui

Original and Featureless Face.

“I am what I look like. These six little words are big enough to cover the whole reason for our plight. They say it all. Or, to elaborate somewhat: I am here, for myself, what I look like over there, to you - as if our distance made no difference!     Douglas E. Harding

“See what at this very moment your own face looks like - the Face you had before you, or indeed your parents, were born - there is nothing hidden. If you look within and recognize your own ‘Original Face', all secrets are in you.”     Hui-neng.

It was Chuang-Tzu who said that faces are a reflection of the soul ” - so if a smile results from a part of ourselves enjoying a gift of nature because all things reflect the divine energy of nature - every flower, every rock, every sound, every sight - have we any other alternative than to realise that truth ? - such that we cannot help but smile !

Equally have not others said laugh and the world laughs with you - weep and you weep alone - such that we should continue always to seek that which makes us laugh - and if we cannot find something to laugh at - pretend !!

Silence within - laughter without - and forever a smile for others to enjoy.

FACE to FACE communication does invariably take place behind masks and most people are acting & not being authentic - and often no one really wants or feels safe to show their trueness…. or even knows it - and I agree that face to face can appear to be guarded & not true at all….

smiling. The wonderful Douglas Harding…

“Of course I look like a man to you at six feet. But I'm looking at myself at zero feet and I cant find any of those features you are in receipt of. Here are no eyes, no mouth, no cheeks, no beard. So I find that we are not, Richard, at this moment, face to face. I've never in all my life been face to face with anyone. It seems to me this face-to-face thing is the great hoodwink, the universal confidence trick which I'm sure is ruinous in the end for living, for many reasons.”

When you engage in a work that taps your talent and
fuels your passion–that rises out of a great need in the
world that you feel drawn by conscience to meet …
therein lies your voice, your calling, your soul's code.

Stephen Covey

The sage works without recognition.
He achieves what has to be done without dwelling on it.
He does not try to show his knowledge.

Lao Tzu

I am a student of consciousness.

I am a dyslexic who has travelled the “world of the lexics” - in order to prove to myself that there are indeed methodologies of communication beyond “words”, that HOMO SAPIENS has to adopt - as part of the global skill-set which IS needed to assist nature in the qualitative advancement of the evolution of LIFE on earth.


I am working with the The CHANGEL Project to establish an internetwork of networks of Thinking Environments to service the mutually beneficial needs & aspirations of … Global Social Responsibility.
