Miriam Louisa Simons, artist, poet, and creator of several exquisite blogs of non-dual wisdom, has contributed an intimate personal account of her ever-unfolding realization in the current is of ONE the Magazine. There she takes the reader on a personal journey of deep spiritual investigation and relentless inquiry, from early childhood experiences of “unbounded spacious knowing,” to the free fall later in life that painfully annihilates all pretense of “little Queen me,” to what she refers to as “the alchemy of emptying,” and the miracle of humility, compassion, and gratitude that now permeate her everyday life.
Here is an excerpt:
“. . . fast forward to the new millennium and I’m in Queensland, Australia. It’s Easter, 2002. If you could peek through the window of my small sanctuary this is what you’d see:
A small, weary, middle-aged woman sits on a zafu. She is crippled by an old injury that will soon require surgery. She is thousands of miles from her work, her colleagues, her friends and her sangha. Her brilliant life seems reduced to ashes.

—Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Practical and profound, Paul Hedderman’s philosophy blends his experience in recovery with the wisdom of Advaita and Non-duality. He calls on us to consider our deeply held notions about self and awareness under a fresh light, and points to a simpler and lighter way of being in the world.
A man of no pretense, Paul’s unique language and solid presence speak of the depth of his understanding of the human condition – in which the original addiction is the mind’s addiction to being a “self.”
