The Internet's Guru

Dear World,

Welcome to Globalish, The Internet’s Guru—a fresh take on spirituality that offers a contemporary path of awakening for the 21st century.

What you will find here are the conversations and collaborations happening at Globalish Institute, a think tank for applied awakening in Los Angeles, CA.

While most of the world points downstream to “global solutions” rooted in the assumption of a separate self, our call is to consistently point everyone back upstream, to the powerful truth and global implications of the felt experience of non-separation.

Our dialogues with people from around the world are published below in 4 channels: Revolution, Travel, Art, & Life. Each dialogue features a curated video as the context for questions about non-separation, translating our in-person events at Globalish Institute into an online experience that can be of service to anyone with an internet connection. In addition to this, we regularly work with artists and spiritual teachers on the production of Globalish Originals—all of which are creative pointers to the realization of non-separation.

The result? A 21st century blend of non-dual wisdom and the hottest online content, creating an entertainment website that doubles as an online satsang.

This letter is a global invitation to work with us on disrupting the traditional guru model by co-creating an experimental brand—an online and offline environment that functions as a living petri dish for awakening in the modern world.

At Globalish, enlightenment doesn’t have to be an aura-measuring contest. Revolution doesn’t need to be about “rebels” blindly focused on an “other.” Art can unabashedly point to the ineffable while travel can be the realization that we are the destinations we visit. In our little corner of the Internet, life becomes about the discovery of who you truly are.

So, who are you, really?

Everything we produce at Globalish is designed to support your journey to discover this very thing.

So let’s get on with it...

The feeling that we call "I" is an illusion. There is no discrete self or ego living like a Minotaur in the labyrinth of the brain. And the feeling that there is– the sense of being perched somewhere behind your eyes, looking out at a world that is separate from yourself– can be altered or entirely extinguished. Although such experiences of "self-transcendence" are generally thought about in religious terms, there is nothing, in principle, irrational about them. From both a scientific and a philosophical point of view, they represent a clearer understanding of the way things are. Deepening that understanding, and repeatedly cutting through the illusion of the self, is what is meant by "spirituality."

Sam Harris, Author, Waking Up

What can we gain by sailing to the moon if we are not able to cross the abyss that separates us from ourselves? This is the most important of all voyages of discovery, and without it, all the rest are not only useless, but disastrous.

Thomas Merton, Catholic writer & mystic

There have been numerous great personalities in the world during the past two to three thousand years. Each one of them has laid down his own list of dos and don’ts, depending on his own concept of the right and wrong and the needs of the times as he saw them. So far so good. Let us now also ask ourselves: What have all these great men [and women] achieved? Have they been able to make the slightest change in the behavior of man or nature? There must be some reason - some fundamental reason - why they have not been successful.  Could it be that the problem itself has been misconceived, or misperceived?

Sheer genius. Highly recommended, if you can handle it.

Globalish is a bold experiment that stands for our inherent unity. In this time of sectarian strife it offers a courageous antidote and a welcome message that all of us can learn from.

Globalish is helping me understand what ‘spiritual but not religious’ truly means. Globalish is my digital guru.

Beyond psychedelics. Globalish is pointing to that which is aware of the manifesting mind.

Don’t judge a book by its cover. If the website doesn’t change you, take a trip to LA and visit Globalish in person. See if you can walk away the same as you entered.
