A.H. Nonprofit is a 501c3 Tax Exempt Corporation EIN: 90-0450329

A.H. Nonprofit provides services to people who are in need, feeling lost, challenged by practical living needs or facing spiritual crisis, as well as being an aide for people focused on a life of self-inquiry, surrender or devotion.

 

In need: If you are hungry, we have organic food. If you are thirsty we have fresh water. If you need a ride, we can arrange for you to be picked up. If you need to be heard and understood, we are available. If you have a life threatening need, call a licensed medical professional.

Feeling lost: Making contact with another human being can be grounding. Reach out, we have been where you are now.

Challenged by practical living needs: There are many agencies designed to assist you, for example food banks, homeless shelters, woofing farms, work trades, etc. We will help find solutions to your unique situation.

Facing Spiritual Crisis: It does not matter to us what your religious background is. We are not a religious organization. We embrace all paths and backgrounds. We meet you at the Source, where all paths take you Home. If you have strong identification with a particular path, it may be best if you contact a member of that specific sect.

Focused on a life of Self-inquiry:  Consider volunteering with us and sharing your direct experience with those who are focused on inquiring.

Surrender: Your Heart will pull your body into relevant actions, there is nothing left for your head to decide.  You made it to this website because you already decided to trust your intuition.

Devotion: There are so many ways to sing about this mysterious presence of love. This is one that sounds sweet to my ears:

“My soul is your temple, O Lord,

My actions are your handmaids,

My body is your home,

My senses witness only you,

My sleep is pure meditation on you,

These walking feet are your journey,

Whatever falls from my mouth is prayer to you,

Oh Lord, everything I say and do are worship.”

Adi Shankara

Border-less

I want to smash up this room. This ignorance must go.

I want to remove it from you. But wait.

Can I remove it from me first?

We speak about non-duality and in the same breath we blame another. How can this be?

If there is ignorance in that one you see as another, then it must be in you, if there is truly only One.

This is obvious as a concept. Even more obvious as a realization. Even ever so obvious to embody this truth.

Then why not let it start here with this.

What causes frustration here may be different than what causes frustration there. Is not the frustration the same, regardless the cause?

It maybe a cliché: “Build bridges not walls.” But it’s a true one.

Meet me in the middle of this bridge, where the distance between your world and mine is no more.

Meet me in the middle of the heart, where love unites with itself, free of fear and doubt. Meet me in the middle of this one Self, where divisions of name and form fall apart.

Hide and Seek

by Nathan Gill

Consciousness, also referred to as The Absolute, The Supreme Reality, No-thing etc. is appearing as everything and everyone right now. That is Your identity, Your true nature. You ARE The Supreme Reality, in and as which arises Awareness, in and as which arises form (the play of life).

Whenever there is simple relaxation into the Awareness aspect of Your Nature, it becomes clear that form (the play of life) is appearing completely spontaneously and that there are no individual entities doing or thinking anything. Awareness is attracted to its own appearances, and, focussed as attention, becomes mesmerised by them (particularly form as thought, and especially thought that appears to refer to “me” as an individual). In this mesmerising, and consequent forgetting of our true nature, the play of life in its myriad appearances seems to be the sole reality.

But Awareness is not confined as and to form, rather, form is appearing IN awareness! When the reminding of this happens in some way, maybe by this current article or through a “teacher”, book, Youtube etc, then identification as form may become obvious and seeking spontaneously ceases. There is no longer focussing in and as form, rather there is resting as Awareness.

The play of life continues but the suffering that arises whenever there is attachment to form (and thought particularly) is no longer there. There often ensues in the play of life remembering and forgetting (identification and dis-identification) which has become known as flip-flopping, but the seeming confinement to and as form has loosened. At times mesmerisation may occur with consequent seeking, at times there is simply resting as Awareness.

In whatever configuration form appears right now, it is just exactly how it’s “meant” to be. Form – the play of life – cannot be altered or transformed in any way by any supposed individual because there are no individuals. The play of life is like a movie already transcribed onto a DVD. It is unalterable, playing endlessly on and on in a display of endless appearances.

Whenever Awareness identifies with form it appears as though seeking through various means is the key to freedom from that identification, but seeking is merely more identification. The life of the apparent individual is an automaticity, just another part of the movie. There is no individual freedom, rather there may be recognition of our true nature when seeing as and from Awareness, and even the outshining of that as the entirety of our nature as the Supreme Reality. None of this can be “done”. All is simply a spontaneously arising modification of the One Reality, which of course is none other than This, already!

So there’s one story, and here’s another. Rarely, with some body-mind appearances in the play there’s no gradual reminding and remembering, but rather the complete and immediate falling away of any limitation to seeing and living directly as and from The Supreme Reality, from No-thing.

Seeing and living directly as and from No-thing is always already the case of course but there isn’t always the conscious recognition of that. Consciousness likes to play hide and seek with itself!
