Vita for Timothy Conway
“This Timothy Conway fellow is a story within a dream… A mere, mortal figment pointing you back to the immortal Divine Dreamer, Your Real Self, the One Who Alone IS.
After a sudden, vivid, and completely life-changing spiritual awakening in my 16th year in February 1971, occurring not by efforts or drugs (never took any drugs), but entirely by Divine Grace, an exploding open of the heart-mind with the nondual realization that “God alone is Real, HERE and NOW, and we—the personified manifestations of God— are all truly made of Divine Spirit, Love, Joy, and Peace”—this life has been gratefully devoted ever since then to freely sharing, with anyone sincerely interested, the profoundly healing and empowering truth of Infinite Open Awareness, the “real Reality” right HERE (closer than the mind), and right NOW (always the true Reality before you can even think about this Self).
Raised by loving parents within the Roman Catholic tradition and taught by progressive Catholic sisters and priests in Los Angeles, after that life-changing (and ongoing) opening to Spirit i came out of my absorption in athletics and nearly became a priest. Then, in Fall 1972, while attending the University of California at Santa Cruz, i was introduced by a highly-psychic western sage to the path of “Who Am I?” transpersonal Self-inquiry, and urged to make a deep study of the Advaita Vedanta sage Ramana Maharshi and other sages of Advaita, Zen Buddhism, and similar genuine paths of awakening East and West.
With years of further immersion in this Great Way of nondual or mystical spirituality, in Fall 1980 there occurred the first of several long trips to Asia and Europe (and various parts of the USA) to meet and learn from many of the leading sages, saints and adepts of our era. After spending a brief time as an ordained Buddhist monk in upper Burma under the renowned arhat (perfect master) Taungpulu Sayadaw, India and her greatest living sages beckoned… and through their influence (Divine Grace), any last questions or confusions dropped. Very soon during that winter of 1980-1, i was encouraged to begin sharing the nondual or advaita spiritual perspective by sage Annamalai Swami (a spiritual son of Ramana Maharshi) and by the great liberated guru Nisargadatta Maharaj of Bombay, and by several other sages, including Yogi Ramsuratkumar of Tiruvannamalai and Mother Krishnabai of Anandashram………………………..”
