- May 4, 2010"Light will someday split you open, even if your life is now a cage...Love will surely burst you wide open into an unfettered, blooming new galaxy."- HafizHillary Brenner on Facebook
Even the sense of "I am" is composed of the pure light and the sense of being.The "I" is there even without the "am". So is the pure light there, whether yousay "I" or not. Become aware of the pure light and you will never lose it.The beingness in being, the awareness in consciousness, the interest in everyexperience - that is not describable, yet perfectly accessible, for there is nothing else.- Nisargadatta MaharajKenneth Larsen on Facebook
Only the dead can die, not the living. That which is alive in you is immortal.In reality there is only the source, dark in itself, making everything shine.Unperceived, it causes perception. Unfelt, it causes feeling.Unthinkable, it causes thought. Non-being, it gives birth to being.It is the immovable background ...of motion.Once you are there, you are at home everywhere.- Nisargadatta MaharajKia Pierce on Facebook
The most sublime truth of all
has never been stated or written or sung.
Not because it is far away and can not be reached,
but because it is so intimately close,
closer than anything that can be spoken.
It is alive as the stillness in the core of your being
too close to be described, too close to be objectified,
too close to be known in the usual way of knowledge.
The truth of who you are is yours already.
It is already present...- GangaJiCullen Anderson on Facebook
The enlightenment I speak of is not simply a realization, not simply the discovery of ones true nature. This discovery is just the beginningthe point of entry into an inner revolution. Realization does not guarantee this revolution; it simply makes it possible. If one cannot become free of the old conditioned structures of human consciousness, then one is still in a prison.- AdyashantiBeatrize Danzler on Facebook
"Light will someday split you open, even if your life is now a cage...Love will surely burst you wide open into an unfettered, blooming new galaxy."- HafizNo simple riddle,no magic fiddle.One or two or all togetherlooking for the single feather.When we askwho gets the task?Begin to thinkhere is the link:I and that out of the hatRemember when,first count to ten.One white swanon the lake at dawn.
No to and frojust letting go.No thing is staying off or on.Not even zero, nothing, none.
