I’ve received a few emails welcoming me back to the online world—which I found surprising since I’ve been blogging heavily over at A Mystic’s Journal the whole time I was “gone.” I guess some of you don’t read my posts very thoroughly (this one in particular). 🙂 Sorry about that.

Now that I’ve resolved and (largely) integrated the Mystic’s Dilemma, I’ll be closing up A Mystic’s Journal at the end of the month and resuming my blogging here.

Important Note 1: I have been creating a series of books from the Mystic’s Joural website and publishing them on Amazon, but please don’t buy those “series” books as I will be replacing them with an all-in-one book (all the posts) very soon. I’ve tried to remove the existing “series” books from Amazon, but they apparently have to run their pre-allotted sales course first.

Important Note 2: If you’ve transferred your email subscription to the newer subscription service, you may be receiving two of these blog post updates in your inbox (one from the new service, one from the old). If this applies to you, just unsubscribe from the old service using the link at the bottom of the email containing the text, “Email delivery powered by Google” in the lower right corner.

With the powerful resolution of the Mystic’s Dilemma and the synchronistic “confirmation” with the Amma Incident (“Enjoy your Self), I’ll be closing my other blog, A Mystic’s Journal at the end of this month and re-awaking this one—WayneWirs.com—at that time.

This post is just a heads-up to subscribers. If you received this in your email or RSS feed reader, then you’re good to go on future updates.

I’ve redone the look and feel of WayneWirs.com (looks a lot like A Mystic’s Journal), so if you have the time, please check it out and let me know of any issues.

Talk to you soon.

The End Game

Note: This blog continues at A Mystic’s Journal.

The End

The End

CONGRESS, AZ—It’s time to place this blog on hold.

If I survive my next experiment, I may re-start this site. Only She knows for sure.

It’s time to face the inevitable. It’s time to play the end game.

My next phase—perhaps my final phase—involves less theory, more walking, and more spiritual growth.

My journey continues over at A Mystic’s Journal.

It will be a much more intimate blog. Less teaching, more living.

I hope you’ll join me.

Thanks for your companionship on the many travels we’ve shared here over all these years.

If you decide not to come along on this new voyage, then I wish you well and all the best and hope your days are cherished and pleasant.

See you on the other side,

Wayne (Wirs)

[END TRANSMISSION]

Please Unsubscribe

FLAGSTAFF, AZIMPORTANT NOTE: This message is intended for the spiritual seekers on this blog. For all others, please see my previous post.

When I talked about firing my customers, I had every intention of pulling a Krishnamurti and ending this blog. I was going to start another site for only those who I felt were truly serious about Mystical Oneness. I even went so far as to reserve the domain, WayneWirs.org, and set up the WordPress (blogging) software on it.

But I realized a new blog (and the restrictions I would put on it) would not address all the “non-spiritual” followers of this blog, so I changed my mind.

As I’ve said recently, I set up NonAbusers.org for the masses with the idea that if enough people participated, it could literally change the world. I still see no flaw in this logic.

assumed (will I ever learn?) that you, my loyal followers (in readership terms), would flock to NA and together we would “seed” it.

You can imagine my disappointment when confronted with the resistance, hell, you can read about it, because this blog is my personal journal—my online home.

Being unemployed and living once again on the Gas Gauge of Life, I can actually calculate my projected lifespan—not in years, but in months (around 20-23). Don’t get me wrong, I love living this way. It adds such a flavor to life that only those who have physically confronted their own demise can truly understand it. It’s beautiful.

A large part of the “flavor” comes from an appreciation for your time. With so little time left, you don’t want to waste it. You want to focus on what is important.

So, as luck would have it—and completely beyond any conscious intention on my part—She provide me with a unique “tool” for separating the wheat from the chaff in terms of who I should spend my time spiritually dialoging with. The tool turned out to be NonAbusers.org—something I wrote for an entirely different purpose (and still stands on its own).

Ironically, it was your completely unexpected reaction to the site that provided this insight (and all this drama).

As I tried to explain before, my past has taught me that no matter how valid or pure the reason for not doing something, it still results in nothing getting done. Lots of great theories, lots of great stuff happening inside all those brains, but ultimately, it is just mental fluff. If it is not brought out into the physical world, it is not real.

Years ago, my mother asked me what good is all this seeking stuff doing others? How is this real?

My (mental) response was, “Well, there’s a lot of stuff going on up here, Mom,” mentally pointing to my head.

Practically every (other) nondual teacher helps their students do more stuff “up there.” They are focused on your Emptiness, the stuff up inside your head. This is just the mental quality which is only one of three qualities of Mystical Oneness.

What’s the point if we, as individuals, don’t make it real out here? Mystical Oneness is AND’s, you have to bring it into the physical world otherwise it’s just more mental fluff.

If my finances don’t change, I’ll be dead in two years. I’m not going to waste that time arguing and proving my points and justifying my words or actions anymore. All the posts prior to this one—dating back years—do that for me. So please, all of you who have been judging me and condemning me and insulting me, please, cut me some slack, I think all those years of articles freely provided to you from the depths of my heart entitle me to a little leeway.

You have to remember, this is my online home, this is my blog, these are my words and “teachings.” If you want to teach me stuff, then send me a link to your blog and if I decide to follow your work, I’ll go to your home.

This is my home, and as a guest here, please respect my decision. She provided a unique tool for me to separate those who are willing to demonstrate they will walk the talk from those who won’t: NonAbusers.org.

So rather than pull a Krishnamurti and start a new blog, I’ve decided to pull a Maharshi and only deal with those spiritual seekers who I feel are serious about my work. You may not agree with my logic, you may be hurt by my decision, or as Noah has accused, you may even call my actions and words abusive, but that’s not my intention. I simply don’t have the physical time for all the mental games. From this point forward, I will no longer spend my precious time dialoging with spiritual seekers who refuse to demonstrate that they walk the talk. This is my home. These are my words. I believe that gives me the right.

There are literally thousands of spiritual teachers who talk about God, Spirit, the nondual and practically every other spiritual topic. They would love for you to join them and bathe in their glory. Other than pay them, they won’t ask you to do a damn thing, just listen to their words and smile rapturously. They are opaque about their personal lives, but they glow divinely on the stage.

I won’t do that. I won’t lie to you, and I swear to God, though I may have disappointed and shocked you, I have never meant to abuse you.

I’m transparent, I’m human, I’m flawed, and I contradict myself on a regular basis. This isn’t a book where I edit every sentence. It isn’t a show I put on for your entertainment. This isn’t a game or a theory or a philosophy.

This. Is. My. Life.

I’m real and I simply won’t apologize for not meeting your expectations.

I can’t make you unsubscribe any more than I can make you get serious. I can and will delete your comments if you are as judgmental of my life or work as both Lokin and Noah consistently are. This is my home and I feel this is my right. NonAbuse is not the same as non-violence. When attacked, by all means, defend yourself, but just do it in as a humanitarian way as possible. To me, on this blog, that is simply blocking self-righteous, judgmental, or abusive users.

Please keep in mind, my asking you to demonstrate your willingness to walk the talk is not some ploy to get you to “seed” NonAbusers. I simply and very literally don’t have the time for such silly games.

As I said previously, “Just imagine how hypocritical a priest, rabbi or imam would look if they refused to take the vow, and you’ll understand my surprise at all the resistance I got from you guys (yes, I hold you to those kind of standards).

believe in you and I hold you to those kind of standards.

So sign up if you are willing to walk the talk. Show me you are worthy of what time I have left and I’ll continue to dialog with you. I don’t believe in excuses or reasons for doing nothingmy drill sergeant taught me the futility of that years ago.

For those who, for whatever reason, aren’t willing to join, I hold no animosity toward you. I truly wish you well.

I’ll not be commenting on this post, nor editing or blocking users on it, so if you feel the desire to vent, then by all means flame on.

Regardless, I love you.

Wayne

[END OF DRAMA]

Disappointed and Disenchanted

FLAGSTAFF, AZ—The legend goes that Lao Tzu, “weary of the moral decay of life” left through the Great Wall of China and was never heard from again.

It is said (in some book I read of Ken Wilbur’s years ago) that Ramana Maharshi, the forefather of modern nonduality, would ignore students that he felt weren’t taking his words seriously—that weren’t living his teachings.

J. Krishnamurti, disbanded the Theosophists, an organization that raised him and named him their World Teacher, because they no longer shared the same philosophies.

I can’t imagine why anyone would not take the Vow of NonAbuse—especially people who know me and follow my work.

Walking it. Living it. Not just talking about it. I’ve been saying this for years. Even Adyashanti, in the last couple of online seminars I’ve listened to, expressed his discouragement at those who just want to talk theory and aren’t willing to do the practice. As he likes to say, “This is where the rubber hits the road.” This is where we apply it.

I’m seriously thinking I’m wasting my time here. Maybe I could learn something from those great sages listed above.

Photo Vows of NonAbuse

The Photo Vow

The Photo Vow

FLAGSTAFF, AZ—Thanks to a great idea from Nathan, I modified NonAbusers.org to accept Photo Vows.

I never liked how difficult making video recordings of the vows were, but never thought of just snapping a photo of yourself (with your URL and circle-on-palm showing), and then just typing in your vow. Doh!

Videos will still work though, indeed, they will take priority (ie: if you have both, then the video will display).

Thanks again Nathan.

The [Redacted] Project Unveiling (Sunday)

The Stump

The Stump

FLAGSTAFF, AZ—My life is full of synchronicities—odds-defying luck by any other name. I’ve been having doubts about the [Redacted] Project, the project I’ve been busting my hump on these last few weeks. Doubts that anyone will participate. Doubts that maybe I’ve finally lost my mind. Doubts that people won’t just look at it and say, “WTF?”

Then this morning I saw a post from fellow nomad Randy who had wrote about a guy who spent 38 years of his life digging a tunnel through a mountain just because he wanted to.

Kinda puts a perspective on things.

Maybe I have lost my mind. Maybe people will look at it and laugh. Maybe they’ll insult me and fart in my general direction. I don’t know, but my hope is that maybe it will change their world.

Regardless, a few weeks of wussy typing is literally nothing—“We believe in nothing, Lebowski!“—when compared to 38 years of backbreaking, hard labor.

With that sign from the ether (and no, Randy doesn’t know what I’m working on—no one does)… with that sign putting the final nail in my little coffin of doubts, I’ll be announcing the unveiling of the Curiously Mysterious [Redacted] Project here on this blog Sunday morning.

No beta-testing, no pre-release feedback, no covering my ass. I’m the only one who’s seen this project or knows what its angle is—and you all know me, I don’t think like most people—so this project has all the markings of an abject failure.

Still, a few weeks of typing is nothing (Lebowski), compared to 38 years of digging alone in the dark.

Decision

Evergreens and Aspens

Evergreens and Aspens

JORDANELLE RESERVOIR OVERLOOK, UT—I made camp last night up in the Uinita National Forest. It’s a beautiful area along the Mirror Lake scenic byway in Utah (SR 150), especially with all the aspens turning from green to yellow to red. I love the freedom this van offers—no pre-planning, just go wherever you want, and camp wherever your van will fit.

With no internet connection and no distractions, it gave me time to think about this new idea I’ve been wrestling with—an idea that has nothing to do with spirituality, Mystical Oneness or students (ergo the dilemma).

I wouldn’t be much of a Mystic though, if I were to ignore Her whispers of late:

Translation: From the Eternal perspective (a Mystic’s “95 year-old Wayne”), what’s the risk? Unexpected example of verbal abuse. Unexpected example of physical abuse.

That’s loud enough for me.

My idea has to do with abuse and what I hope is a practical way of curbing it.

A way that anyone can apply.

A way that starts from within.

The Mystical Qualities of Being

The Dandelion Awaits the Wind

The Dandelion Awaits the Wind

NE MT. HOOD SITE #2—While I expected to be quite busy with work, I haven’t heard even a peep about those major projects I recently implemented on my client’s site (and that I had been working full bore on all last month).

So, rather than spend my time in a sort of limbo-on-call state, I went with the flow and worked on my own stuff.

With the 80/20 rule in mind, one of the things I’ve been meaning to do for months (years?) is to put together a simple, How I See the World page, a sort of introduction to my message.

If you’ve ever wondered, “What the hell is Wayne talking about?,” then this is the page for you: The Mystical Qualities of Being (also found via the New Here? menu option).

It’s actually four pages, the Intro and one for each Quality, but you get the point.

I hope this helps clarify some of the stuff you read about here, and please let me know if you see any typos.
