Reflections on living from Capacity

News of books and audio

Richard Lang - Saturday, August 29, 2009

Some bits and pieces of news:

Navi in Australia tells me the work of putting onto digital file the original manuscript of Douglas Harding's The Hierarchy of Heaven and Earth is moving along well. A thousand thanks to you Navi, and your trusty gang of helpers! When it's ready, we will make it available in the bookshop.

I just received a proof copy of The Little Book of Life and Death back from the publishers, so we will be making that available again shortly. And Douglas Harding's The Spectre in the Lake will be available soon as well. I'll let you know when.

Lastly, my audio guide to the experiments is in the process of being published. It should be ready in a couple of weeks. It's called Discovering Your True Self and is on two CDs.


Workshop at Krishnamurti school

Richard Lang - Tuesday, August 25, 2009

I have a good friend, Alan Rowlands, who gave a workshop at the Krishnamurti School this last weekend. He used to teach music there, when Krishnamurti was alive. Talking with him on the phone about it, it was a delight to hear how much he enjoyed sharing Seeing with a new group of people. It really is a joy to share this wonderful truth about ourselves.

Workshop in Ireland

Richard Lang - Tuesday, August 25, 2009

More than 30 came to the workshop in Kenmare in Ireland on Saturday (22/8/10). It was a real delight to see new friends valuing Seeing.


Books - back into print

Richard Lang - Friday, August 14, 2009

We're in the process of bringing a couple of books by Douglas Harding back into print - The Little Book of Life and Death and The Spectre in the Lake. Both are great books. The Little Book of Life and Death - many of you will know this since it's only recently gone out of print. The Spectre in the Lake is less well known as it's been out of print for a while. It's a fictional work Douglas wrote about twenty years ago - he called it 'a kind of Pilgrim's Progress for the Third Millennium'. Both books should be ready in a few weeks. I'll let everyone know when they become available.


Interview with Sam Blight

Richard Lang - Sunday, August 09, 2009

I just listened to the interview with Sam Blight again on Nevernothere. It's very good - I recommend it. (By the way, it's Sam that does all the design work for the website - a labour of love.)

A Growing Network of Friends

Richard Lang - Monday, August 03, 2009

There's a headless seers group that meet each month in Fremantle, Western Australia, at Gurukula, the home of Pete and Pearl Sumner. Here's the blurb Pete put together for the next meeting. (Pete and Pearl's website is www.peterspearls.com.au)

Come and be part of a growing network of friends around the world who are enjoying seeing Who they really are. As Richard Lang explains: When 'seers' are together, it's essentially a non-verbal experience - I see that I have your face as my own, that you are within me. Seeing this doesn't have to involve words.

At the same time, it's a pleasure to share our different views from this one indivisible Source. As we do so, we hear everyone's voice in this one awake Silence - we are capacity for one another, we become one another. This is a deep kind of love. And whether we are with friends or alone, the life of a 'seer' is a life of deeper and deeper trust and surrender.

When you see Who is within you, then it makes sense to hand over to that One and let it live your life. Such a life of surrender is a great adventure. Seers see that their hands and legs, their voice and mind, in reality belong to the One - and as they attend to this reality, moment by moment, and honour Who they really are, they discover what the One within them gets up to through them!

It's often not what you would expect. Right now the One within me is writing to the One within you, about being One and many!

Seers are those who see what is actually given, rather than what they are told to see. They are simple enough to look. And so they see that they are face to no-face with others, they are capacity for others. This is a deep kind of love.

They see that they are still whilst the world moves - this is profoundly relaxing. They see that their face in the mirror gets older, but their no-face doesn't - their True Self will never die. This is the end of the fear of death. They see that they are - things come and go, but Being IS. This is joy - the joy that has no shadow.

And they see that all things come from the One within them. Realizing the power and love of their True Self, they recognize the wisdom of saying Yes! to what it gives them, moment by moment.

If you would like to trade faces with friends at Gurukula, then we would love that too.

Back from the Gathering

Richard Lang - Friday, July 31, 2009

I’m back from the summer gathering in Salisbury (23-27/7/10). There were about 40 people present for four days. I found it wonderful to be with so many varied people all sharing and celebrating our indivisible, common identity - and each with their own unique view out from this clear source.

I made a short film montage of the gathering - it may not be of much interest if you were not at the gathering!

Summer Gathering

Richard Lang - Thursday, July 23, 2009

I'm going to the English summer gathering later today. There will be about forty people there for five days. We will be exploring and enjoying being headless together! I'll let you know how it has gone when I get back early next week.

When you see the headless space where you are, you are seeing the same headless space where everyone is. The view out is different, but the Viewer is the same! Now, wouldn't it be great if more people in the world became aware of this Consciousness that we all share, that we are all looking out of, that we all are? I think so!

The Face in the Mirror

Richard Lang - Wednesday, July 22, 2009

There's a very good exchange between the spiritual teacher Gangaji and a friend of hers on Youtube where the friend so clearly and passionately describes being free of the face he sees in the mirror, and being face to no-face with Gangaji. It's only a couple of minutes. Here's the link - The Face in the Mirror.
