- Nov 1, 2012Sixty-six times have these eyes beheld
the changing scenes of autumn
I have said enough about moonlight,
Ask no more.
Only listen to the voice of pines and cedars
when no wind stirs.~RyonenMeet your own self. Be with your own self,
listen to it, obey it, cherish it, keep it in
mind ceaselessly. You need no other guide.
As long as your urge for truth affects your
daily life, all is well with you. Live your
life without hurting anybody. Harmlessness
is a most powerful form of Yoga and it will
take you speedily to your goal. This is what
I call nisarga yoga, the Natural yoga. It is
the art of living in peace and harmony, in
friendliness and love. The fruit of it is
happiness, uncaused and endless.~Nisargadatta Maharajvia Along The WaySelf is what you are, You are That
Fathomlessness in which experience and concepts appear.
Self is the Moment which has no coming or going.
It is the Heart, Atman, Emptiness.
It shines to Itself, by Itself, in Itself.
Self is what gives breath to life,
you need not search for It, It is Here.
You are That through which you would search.
You are what you are looking for!
And That is all it is.
Only Self is.
~Papajivia Along The WayThe most important part of the practice is for the question to remain alive and
for your whole body and mind to become a question. In Zen they say that you
have to ask with the pores of your skin and the marrow of your bones. A Zen
saying points out: Great questioning, great awakening; little questioning, little
awakening; no questioning, no awakening.~Martine Batchelorphoto by Peter SheflerEvery time I open my eyes
I invite the world to take shape
And every time the world takes shape
I'm invited to open my eyes
And see the world raw and nakedHolding out its hand
Calling me into it's self
Where I am taken into the Transparency of things
and find myself transparent then
Standing on the edge looking down
And in to the dark silent pool
in which the world is cradled
And I am cradled there, held with all things
And hold all things in myself
Myself, not a thing in the world but This -here-Seeing
In which the world opens, inviting and offering itselfAnd every time it is seen- It dies
And in dying, holds out its hand again
Asking to be taken in
And every time I take it in
I too die
And in dying -am known
As This Here - Seeing~Rupert Spira
