I am, but we declare. In what’s known as spirituality or nonduality, pointers abound. There’s a multi-thousand years tradition in which teachers and schools have created the ten thousand ways and means of getting to the one truth.

Call it That, Mind, Spirit, Consciousness, Emptiness, Now, etc., you’re still calling something nameless a name. Too often that name, that pointer, becomes an end in itself. Thus, religion, or something real close to it. Often the names and metaphors just intersect, cross, contradict, and ultimately confuse.

Not to mention the practices! Too often the practice becomes the point, when it too is just a non-verbal pointer.

Ultimately it is up to each individual (from the viewpoint of the relative) to determine the one truth. But because it is nameless, it may be necessary to look at it in many ways. These are mine.
