  Pure Silence: LEssioons in Living and Dying



The real author of these pages and indeed of all which is a glimmer of the truth itself is the One Self, the Eternal Now or that which is Love. Those humans who have been blessed with grace to be able to experience truth as it is are simply instruments or servants to it.

When one comes to experience pure silence as the core of one's being and taste the living freedom that we all are, the simple fact is that one needs or is 'propelled' by compassion to share one's realization in any way one can with others. In that way many can come to know and experience reality as it is.

In this human's case and as of now, it is through a web based transformational presentation called Pure Silence. There have been many who have asked, "who are you who writes this stuff?" For some time I have not wanted to detract from the teaching because, let's face it, that is what is perennial, not the individual instrument or scribe.

Many sites offer 'truth or satsang with' or 'Enlightenment by' this one or that. This is ok as long as the meaning and truth are central and not the maintenance of the individual's own image. This has been the downfall of the message over time because people through no fault of their own resonate more with a teacher than the teaching. Again it is the message of transformation which is central not he or she who is delivering it.

I am simply a middle aged man from Pennsylvania USA, who has been married to a wonderful women named Eileen for 19 years. We have two beautiful children, Jill and Mark, a black Labrador named Princess who would rather swim than anything else in life, and a yellow Lab named Peaches who barks at dogs on TV. I am a businessman (seafood importer) and thus have not needed to seek income from these pages. I wish that to continue for as I have suggested many times in these pages, 'spirituality, truth and God are not for sale'. This site is my gift to you and will remain so for as long as possible.

Throughout my own journey I have had many experiences, travelled many places, worn many hats, cried many tears and laughed with the best. The gift of my own realization has been that having spent so many years taking from this earth and from people on it, I am graced now, very simply to give back in any way I can. In that giving or attempt to give, my only hope is that more people will come to their own awakening to the fact that there really is no individual ego at all but that we are all one, the same, the identical consciousness in the pure empty loving silence of being itself which is the Self. Perhaps we can finally bring peace, stability and freedom to the earth itself.

As always I invite you to share Pure Silence with everyone you meet. Love and joy to you and yours always.

Mark McCloskey.

A gentle, loving, inner peace and silence is here and now in this moment. It has always been this way. It is always here. It is right here within you and all around you, a stillness, an apparent void, a seeming nothingness out of which everything arises, exists, and eventually returns.

You know this. You have felt this.

There is nothing more than this.

You are this.

This is not some esoteric spiritual jargon about some new age philosophy or any religion or belief. There is nothing here which is mystical. There are just these words and you and the silence. This is real, now.

This is right here in you, every single moment of your life.

This pure silence contains you, your being-ness. The silence is your very being.

This silence allows the entire universe to be.

All existence, everything that is, all matter and energy, all thought is contained in this silence.

This is what some have called Truth, Infinity, Reality, Enlightenment, Nothingness, God, Great or Holy Spirit, True Self, I am, Consciousness and Love.

This is a mystery beyond mind, beyond what the human brain can fully comprehend. Like a beautiful diamond, we can only see a few facets at a time. This mystery is seemingly far beyond us; our capacity to understand, to know. And yet this is contained within our very selves, and this contains us as well.

The greatest wonder of this is that you and I, above all other life forms on this planet are able to be consciously aware of this reality, now.

Yes, you are aware of this, though perhaps you do not believe this so. Perhaps you have not realized this.

This awareness of ours, this consciousness of being, is the silence itself.

There is only this.

We have spent thousands of years denying what is more present to us than our very breath, our very heartbeat.

This silence permeates everything and is the allow-er of everything. The silence allows us to be and to be free.

There is only this.

You are this.

All that you need, all that you seek, all that you hope and long for is contained in this silence.

These pages may help you to know this, to realize this and to live out of this.

All you need to do is stop and just be.

There is only this:

Pure Silence.

Welcome to you my friend.


These pages are arising, growing and evolving; someday it will not be. This is the way everything is in reality; all forms, all matter, all energy, all thought arises, grows and then seems to disappear.

Until then you may click on any of the topics below. I must tell you however nothing is hidden, everything is open, transparent. Some of what you will read will disturb you and may cause you to leave. That is Ok. At least you will have been offered a small titbit of truth. What you do with it, at that point, is strictly up to you.

Everything you will read is but a glimmer of the Truth as it is right now. The purpose of these pages is to offer you this moment compassionately and freely. Click on any of the topics below, in any order you wish. I only ask that you are open to whatever may arise within you.

There is only this.

These pages are designed by your own True Self. The words you read are really your own. As you read on you will understand this and you will resonate with this.
