Instinctive Recognition

The recognition of the open intelligence that is the basis of all of our experience is instinctive. It is already the case and in a short moment of relaxing the focus on all of the descriptions we simply allow ourselves to notice this is actually so.

"Instinctive", means that no intellectual analysis is required for this most fundamental of all realisations, which is good news as we can stop trying to work out what is inconceivable and instead settle into and demonstrate its powers of great benefit. Emphasising concepts and ideas about open intelligence is simply another form of reificiation.

It is so inspiring to spend time with other people relying on OI, it just makes being together so easy and so much fun. It is incredible to watch communities of open minded people springing up all around the world and to see the growing stability of everyone involved is completely convincing. The efficacy of the Four Mainstays of Balanced View is evidenced in thousands and thousands of people who are discovering and displaying open-hearted relating. I feel so lucky to be part of this radical movement for world peace.

Taking it all the way

To begin to recognise the inseparable nature of everything from the basic state of open intelligence is always very powerful and liberating. To discover complete mental and emotional stability is an incredible gift that allows for an ease and warmth of relating that most of us had no idea was even possible. The insights into the nature of our experience that begin to appear can be quite incredible from this vantage of relaxed potency. However, this is just the beginning.

If you really want to see just how incredible you have always been and to really apply your capacity to bring innovative solutions that are of benefit to all then this is where the Four Mainstays of Balanced View really come into their own. Blow open all assumptions and conventions both those you can see for yourself and those that it may be harder to recognise without support. Do not settle for anything less than the complete integration of open intelligence and its powers of great benefit into every aspect of your life.

Potent humility

What a joy to discover that there is nothing to defend and nothing to prove. In the recognition of open intelligence as our true identity there is a natural humility that is incredibly potent. Gratitude, appreciation and dynamic responsiveness replace the out-dated judgement, criticism and blame that have become the conventional way of life. Thank you Balanced View !

Monday, 15 August 2011


What a relief to be able to take responsibility for the way that we are in the world. How empowering to be able to set an example of peaceful ease in all circumstances. To allow ourselves to feel everything fully and not to flinch in the face of the unpredictable flow of data but instead to remain steadfast in the open intelligence that is the foundation of all experience.

This is obviously so incredibly important at this time in human history. We see all around us the results of the knee-jerk reaction of people to what is happening both with their own thoughts, emotions and sensations and to the events in society and the wider environment. The culture of judgement, criticism and blame that is still prevalent never leads anywhere other than more judgement, criticism and blame. By clearly seeing that you have never actually been a victim to any of this data you take a stand for what it really means to be human and demonstrate the capacity that we all have to relate with openness and understanding and to bring a solution oriented approach to all aspects of life.

This is the most radical, revolutionary and beneficial step you can ever take and the Balanced View global community is here to support you in every way. Blow open all the conventional assumptions of what it means to be human and what human society is intended to be. It's time to get real!

Evaluating Information

There is a massive amount of information about all kinds of things available via the internet and other media. What is essential when evaluating this information is basic discernment. Look at the effects of this information on the groups that are sharing it. Instead of deciding whether you like the sound of something that is shared, actually look at the results it produces in those that hear it.

You might ask yourself questions like:

Does this information empower people to take responsibility for their actions?

Does this information encourage active participation in building a society that is based on mutual respect and understanding?

Does this information provide clear instructions for how you can recognise your ability to contribute your incredible strengths, gifts and talents for the benefit of all?

Are the people who are sharing this information actually demonstrating these activities and qualities in all aspects of life?

Does this information include a reliable support network that allows for these important steps to be integrated into your everyday life?

If you cannot clearly answer "yes" to all of these questions then keep looking until you do find an information source that does satisfy these essential requirements.

Nothing is required

Nothing is required for you to recognise yourself as you actually are, a wide-open intelligence that is always clear and immediately accessible. Just stop thinking for an instant and recognise that something has been constant throughout all of your experience. What is looking has always been exactly the same.

By simply repeating this instinctive recognition then we discover the stable essence of our experience is completely reliable and at ease regardless of the description that spontaneously appears. This open intelligence is the source of ultimate well-being that does not depend on trying to achieve a certain set of descriptions or circumstances and does not require any thinking or reflection to be recognised.

One short moment at a time.

Attempts to cultivate compassion are always frustrating and a struggle. We try to be good and to help others but are often so consumed by all our thoughts and emotions about what we are doing and what other people are thinking that it seems impossible to know what will be really effective.

From the vantage of open intelligence, that is the basis of all our thoughts, sensations and emotions, we see everything clearly, exactly as it is. By gaining confidence that this is the basis of all our experience and the reliable ground through which everything is known then we tap into an amazing source of natural compassion and spontaneous ethics. We discover in our own experience the glue that effortlessly unites everything in its warm embrace and are able to act skilfully in all situations with dignity and openness.

To gain confidence in this, the practice of taking short moments of allowing all of the data to be just as they are and to begin to emphasise the natural presence of open intelligence, is incredibly supportive and convincing. The Balanced View is a grass-roots movement of people from all around the world that are committed to challenging all of the conventional assumptions about what it means to be human and what the basis of all relating actually is.

With the free support network that is offered gaining confidence in open intelligence becomes easy. Relating is based on the mutual respect and gratitude that is inherent in each uncontrived short moment and the compassion that seemed so elusive is found to be spontaneously present. We discover that altruism is the natural state of all humans and gaining confidence in open intelligence allows us to experience this directly for ourselves in everyday life.

What a marvel this is!

Every time I spend time with other people who have made the simple choice to prioritise clarity I am completely amazed.

Original Purity

Immediately reset yourself to your original sky-like purity with a short moment of relaxed openness. Nothing needs to change, nothing is required, just relax body and mind for a short moment.

Complete Empowerment

The complete empowerment of what it actually means to be a human being is found in the instinctive recognition of the inseparability of what is appearing from what is looking. With this recognition the bright open intelligence that is the basis for all experience naturally becomes more and more obvious. We are no longer fooled by the countless, ceaseless and unpredictable flow of thoughts and perceptions but instead are grounded in their stable essence.

This clear seeing is always wide-open and free in its own place, fully capable of seeing exactly what is the most effective way to be in any situation. We tap into our innate capacity to be of incredible benefit when we are free of the need to continuously build elaborate fictions around every fleeting appearance. The ease of being, compassion and clarity that we may have searched hard for are found to be naturally present in each short moment of relaxing mind and body.

Personal identity

All ridiculous and painful extremes of self identification are instantly outshone by a short moment of the instinctive recognition of the inseparability of whatever is occurring from the primordial ground of wide-open benefit. What's looking has no need of any conceptual frameworks, no need to get caught up in any ideas of "existence", or "non-existence", it is always just naturally present and at ease.

Why rely on clarity?

The reason to become familiar with clarity is to blow open all conventional descriptions of who we are and what we are capable of into the wide-open, free-flowing spontaneous outpouring of benefit that is synonymous with clarity.

In each short moment we clarify the exact nature of our experience, cut the root of the belief in the independent nature of any description and touch in with the relaxed openness that is at the root of all perception. When we are no longer fettered by the need to refer experience to any set of conceptual frameworks then the wonder of everything just as it is is instinctively recognised and we rest easily in the powers of great benefit.

Enjoy the sheer delight of everything just as it is. Relax all need to describe, just for a short moment, and see what you find.

Monday, 7 February 2011


True freedom is the ability to respond with spontaneous love, compassion and wisdom in any situation. To be free of the need to reference our behaviour to any adopted set of belief systems or conceptual frameworks allows for the clear, bright, openness of clarity intelligence to shine brightly forth in all of our everyday activities. The evidence of this is to be found in the demonstration of naturally beneficial speech, mind, qualities and activities. Decisive action that is effortlessly sensitive to the needs of everyone becomes the norm.

Freedom is not a self-centred activity but is for the benefit of all.

Your afflictive states are the key to tapping into clarity power. Your anger, your sadness, your irritation or confusion are potent with beneficial energy when left exactly as they are. This is directly recognised in a short moment of allowing these surges of energy to do whatever they are doing without indulging, avoiding or replacing them. These states are power houses of heart bursting compassion and the clear light of clarity. As soon as you start to do anything with them then you are lost in an world of endless descriptions, swallowed up by all of the elaborate stories that immediately proliferate.

Stand tall as clarity amidst the flow of unpredictable points of view, unflinching in your commitment to clarity for the benefit of all.

Shining Clarity

Seize the power of your own mind! Blow wide-open all of your pre-conceptions of what you are capable of with the pure potency of clarity. Shatter all illusions with the lightning bolt of brilliant recognition of exactly the way things really are. Shine the bright light of clarity on every one of your adopted assumptions about what is going on. Go right to the heart of the matter in every short moment of shining clarity. Do not settle for anything other than the total empowerment of yourself, fearless and ferocious and completely capable of incredible benefit.

Monday, 10 January 2011

Direct encounter

It is only in the direct encounter with all of our experience that we have the opportunity to come to deeply know the inseparable nature of whatever is occurring from the basic state. As long as we are still engaged in the conventional approach of continually micromanaging every experience, holding on to the good ones and trying to avoid the bad, then this inseparability will never be more than a rather nice concept. It is only when we decide to face everything fully, whilst firmly rooted in clarity and its support network that the indivisible nature of everything is directly recognised. In this recognition of the way things really are is the power to be of great benefit both to yourself and everyone and everything in your life as you blow open all adopted frames of reference.

The importance of support

To try and take short moments of clarity on your own can bring relief to many situations but at other times can also seem very challenging. With the support of a trainer, a wealth of training material and a world-wide community the recognition of clarity on a moment to moment basis becomes much easier. When you are completely supported then there is no way that you can go wrong, no possibility of holing up in some obscure point of view. Instead you are empowered to take clear, decisive, compassionate action that is of benefit to all.

Saturday, 1 January 2011


Your points of view are precious gems! Each experience is a unique opportunity to extract the clarity power inherent in all situations. A wonderful chance to allow everything to be exactly as it is and to demonstrate the practical perfected action of clarity intelligence. This is your clarity intelligence in your everyday experience of life. Not far off, not mysterious or unattainable but immediately accessible in a short moment of relaxed openness.
