Don’t live life indirectly. Don’t consume more than you create. Don’t just look without partaking. Dive into each moment as it is presented to you. Be in it totally. Each and every second should be lived as intensely as possible, or simply put live to the point of tears.
Because life is experience, and if you have a nasty tendency of indirect experience, then your life becomes indirect. An indirect life will not fulfill you. Only the direct experienced life will fulfill.
Who’s Who in the Mystics Zoo! A original book from iPerceptive about a enlightened hippopotamus guiding the reader into the mystical experience! So beware fellow traveler and seeker because you might get enlightened just by reading it!
You might have noticed, if in fact there is any one truly reading this, that I’m quite ambitious in creating this website into a great community where the empowerment of ones own direct experience is the goal, which in turn means the fulfilment of ones life.
I’m currently working on multiple books simultaneously, and in truth it doesn’t really feel like work, because everything is just pouring out of me. They are in other words being written by themselves, on topics that I’m very familiar and intimate with. Topics like those mentioned above.
Hopefully spiritual seekers can in some way benefit from these books, and if that happens to be the case, I will consider that as an accomplishment for my quest on this world, if I had any to begin with. If I would to describe my quest I would say that it would be primarily to spread the light of direct experience.

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. Ralph Waldo Emerson (Education)
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. Ralph Waldo Emerson (Works and Days)
The happiest man is he who learns from nature the lesson of worship. Ralph Waldo Emerson (Nature – Chapter 7: Spirit, 1836)
The health of the eye seems to demand a horizon. We are never tired, so long as we can see far enough. Ralph Waldo Emerson (Nature – Chapter 3: Beauty, 1836)
But if a man would be alone, let him look at the stars. The rays that come from those heavenly worlds, will separate between him and vulgar things. Ralph Waldo Emerson (Nature – Chapter 1, 1836)
Nothing divine dies. All good is eternally reproductive. The beauty of nature reforms itself in the mind, and not for barren contemplation, but for new creation. Ralph Waldo Emerson(Nature – Chapter 3: Beauty, 1836)
I want to transform iPerceptive from a quotations website to something much more alive and vibrant. Since the quotations have laid the foundation of the website I still want to keep the authors and the quotes. But they should be secondary to the primary purpose of this site. Which from now on will be primarily the empowerment of direct experience.
Perhaps I haven’t exactly made clear on what I mean by direct experience. As a human being you can either navigate this world as a person or as presence. A person often has lots of personal problems and therefore a weight that he/she/it carries around with himself. Living life merely as a person can make it rather difficult to be in the totality of the moment as it unfolds. Why? Because the person has a myriad of different projections about itself, life and the world. This creates an filtration of the immediate reality, where it is watered down to more or less fit your personal mythology. Now I deem this to be quite the limitation to our consciousness, which is why living as presence is much more true and good towards existence.
Presence has no gender and it has no objective quality. It simply is what it is. Its present, presence is here and now. It is immediate and direct. Person is not this, person is always referring to preconceived ideas about how things should be. The person is very inflexible and stale, where as presence is, I dare say, ultimately flexible. When you consciously feel that there is more to life than what your identity has to offer. Withdraw into yourself and become a witness to your own immediate experience. Your thoughts, feelings, moods, dreams, fears, loves, hopes, aspirations, depressions and everything else under the sun. Simply be present, see them as they are. Be in direct experience with yourself and the universe. This is the way of transformation and of evolution.
From now on then, I will do my best to make this website for those souls that are thirsty for more direct and subsequently more fulfilling experiences of life.
An oasis in a vast desert of personal bullshit, so keep strong my fellow yearners of truth, your path be blessed!
This mind of mine happens to be absolutely fascinated by direct experience, that is unfiltered and unhindered experience of yourself and the surrounding world each and every moment. I’ve also noticed that this pure way of seeing has a healthy tendency of fullfilling your every need. This happens while life simultaneously reveals unto you a glimpse of eternity each and every second.
