All the waters run to the sea and yet the sea is not full, and from the place where they began, thither they return again. Ecclesiastes 1.7
time to head home
It’s way past 10 PM, it’s late night and time to head back home. Our parents await our return and will rest not until we do. Do we heed their call? Are we not lost? Is it not time to find our way back home?
The Truth will set you free. John 8.32
freedom = fearless love
Real freedom is the ability to dance with fear in the midst of it. It’s freedom from any expectations of another. Freedom from caring about what others think about me. Authentic freedom is the ability to pursue Truth relentlessly. Being able to live with abandon, courage and in fearless love is the truest freedom.
Leave the mind to be as it is, and remain as you are. Rupert Spira
I am not my thoughts. I am not my mind. What is it that can make these statements? What can leave the mind alone and just be? You, I.
Be crumbled so that wildflowers will come up where you are. You have been stony for too many years. Try something different. Surrender. Rumi
The assertion of self calcifies the unreal into seeming reality. This self-hypnosis is stultifying and the very cause of our ever-present suffering. It’s time to break this mold and allow the self to collapse into the sweet-nothingness of love itself. It’s time to surrender…
When there’s no story, there’s no suffering. Byron Katie
no story = no suffering
All suffering arises and is experienced in our minds. And it’s a direct result of stories that we create, one thought at a time. No thoughts means no stories equals no suffering, simple.
Keep quiet. Don’t think. Don’t move. Papaji
Keep quiet, decide to not talk for some time.
Don’t think, simply decide to calm down and still all thoughts. It’ll happen.
Don’t move, keep your body entirely still as well. Breathe naturally.
With a relaxed determination this simple practice is all you need.
You are never alone. You are eternally connected with everyone. Amit Ray
We ought to have no worries at all. We’re made of god-substance. Each and everyone one of us. And that’s why we’re connected, always, and at the deepest level. So why don’t we experience this oneness? It’s because for some reason we’ve decided to play this game of being little, being nothing, being alone and being scared. What if we discovered that this was all a grand illusion, just a playful activity of the divine, that is us?
