      O let us live in joy, although having nothing!
      In joy let us live like spirits of light!

      ~ Buddha
      From "Sayings of the Buddha: Reflections for Every Day", by William Wray, 2004
       

       
      Shiva and Shakti are one,
      Like air and the wind,
      Like gold and its luster.

      Shiva and Shakti cannot be separated.
      They are like musk and its fragrance,
      like fire and its heat.

      ~ Jnaneshwar (also known as Jnanadeva)

      The Wisdom of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
       
       
      "Which God are you talking about? What is God? Is he not the very
      light by which you ask the question? 'I am"' itself is God. The
      seeking itself is God. In seeking you discover that you are neither
      the body nor mind, and the love of self in you is for the self in all.
      The two are one. The consciousness in you and the consciousness in
      me, apparently two, really one, seek unity and that is love."

      "The very idea of going beyond the dream is illusory. Why go
      anywhere? Just realize that you are dreaming a dream you call the
      world, and stop looking for ways out. The dream is not your problem.
      Your problem is that you like one part of your dream and not another.
      Love all, or none of it, and stop complaining. When you have seen
      the dream as a dream, you have done all that need be done."

      "Your own self is your ultimate teacher. The outer teacher is merely
      a milestone. It is only your inner teacher that will walk with you to
      the goal, for he is the goal."

      It was lecture time and the Master said,
      "The genius of a composer is found in the notes of
      his music - but analyzing the notes will not
      reveal his genius.  The poet's greatness is
      contained in his words - yet the study of his
      words will not disclose his inspiration. 
      God reveals himself in creation - but scrutinize
      creation as minutely as you wish, you will not
      find God, any more than you will find the soul
      through the careful examination of your body."

      At question time someone asked,
      "How then shall we find God?"

      "By looking at creation, not by analyzing it."

      "And how is one to look?"

      "A peasant sets out to find beauty in the sunset,
      but all he finds is sun and cloud and sky and
      earth's horizon - till he understands that beauty
      is not a 'thing' but a special way of looking.
      You will seek for God in vain till you
      understand that God can't be seen as 'thing';
      he needs a special way of looking - similar to
      that of little children whose sight is undistorted
      by prefabricated doctrines and beliefs."

      ~Anthony de Mello, S.J.

      "How do you do Nothing?" asked Pooh,

      after he had wondered for a long time.

       

      "Well, it's when people call out at you just as you're going off to do it;

      'What are you going to do, Christopher Robin?,'

      and you say, "Oh nothing,' and then you go and do it."

       

      "Oh, I see," said Pooh.

       

      "This is a nothing sort of thing that we're doing now."

       

      "Oh I see," said Pooh again.

       

      "It means just going along,

      listening to all the things you can't hear,

      and not bothering."
