It’s the path inward and through to the heart where being on the ground of the moment is your teacher, your inner-guru, here you find autognosis. Consciously attuned to what is appearing, both inwardly and outwardly, become confident in the presence of inner knowing. This is a brave, solo path into not what you think you know, but the knowing you are.

Autognosis is a way to depend exclusively on natural intelligence. It is your own intelligence leading into deeper inner insights and that supports a conscious relationship with yourself. Autognosis is one way to work through cognitive blind spots, beliefs, false identities and attachments that keep suffering in place. Your inner intelligence is ancient, nonjudgmental, always present and represents a most natural part of your psyche.

You can learn to trust this again by directly experiencing the knowing you are.

Autognosis is not a spiritual teaching. While teachings may be helpful at developmental points along the spiritual path, they represent cognitive understandings and information. A teaching will not be the point you actually transcend dependence on mental projections.

Autognosis is a practice founded in direct experience. It exercises the muscle of self-knowing. As many times a day as you remember to do so, tune into your own inner atmosphere, fall into the experience your inner integrity. By practicing autognosis, you can address your mind in a real practical way, on the ground of the moment, and as the ground of the moment, where your inner-guru is always shining.
