"Forget the known, but remember that you are the knower. Don't be all
the time immersed in your experiences. Remember that you are beyond
the experiencer, ever unborn and deathless."~ Sri Nisargadattaposted to A Net of Jewels"All you need is already within you, only you must approach yourself
with reverence and love.
Self-condemnation and self-distrust are grievous errors...all I plead
with you is this: make love of yourself perfect."
~ Sri Nisargadatta
From the book, "Radical Acceptance: Embracing Your Life With the Heart
of a Buddha," published by Bantam.

A man with fishing rod
Smiling from calm blue
across deep green
I pass and ask if trees
always were so tall
Was every plant a universe
a star, a home?
Or simply reappearing

Om purnamadah, purnamidam purnat purnamudacyate
Punasya purnamadaya purnamevavasisyate
This is complete, that is complete;
From completeness completeness came forth;
Taking completeness from completeness;
Adding completeness to completeness,
Completeness alone remains.
Here are a few words that came through!
There is nothing expected from you.
I am simply grateful if you're willing to receive this.
You are all in me in Love.
Transformation is far more arduous than changing beliefs, but nothing less than that will bring genuine awakening and liberation. There is no other doer than the indivisible power of the One, but your individual energy is also required to reach its full positive potential before the natural flowering of surrender has real meaning and depth. ~M.I
sweep the sky
in your veins,
a dark river
without the moon
a patient river
on the lake bottom,
a pale moon
staring at the stars
in my tea cup,
a star struck moon waiting
for the other half
kiss me moon
with your whisper
and pass me by
come back, moon...
what will i write about
later, the moon
will sink into darkness
The equation for unconditional happiness,
limitless peace and love
You are consciousness itself.
your very nature is limitless
love, peace and bliss.
You do not experience this
because you are identified with your mind.
Which is to say, you believe
you are your thoughts and emotions.
So when you think happy thoughts
you seem happy
when you think unhappy thoughts
you seem unhappy.
Your very experience is controlled by your thoughts.
In order to tap into your true nature
which is an overflowing,
far more blissful and truthful
than what positive thinking
could ever create for you,
you need to develop the ability
to witness your thoughts.
In this way, you can disidentify
with your thinking
and thus discover who you are behind this.
You strip off your costume
and you see your
spend time every day
and witnessing your thoughts.
You are present,
watching your breath.
you see them come
you see them go.
You do not make them you.
The thought comes
"Do I have enough rice for tonight?"
And you see this thought as a sound
having nothing to do with
you being present in the moment
The tendency is to be pulled by the thought.
One moment you are sitting, breathing
the next you are eating rice for dinner
then buying rice in the store
and seeing the chocolate on the shelf
that you ate when you were ten
when you were at the fair with your mom
and she is now in Spain and
then you are visiting her in Spain,
but you do not have time
because now you are trying to get that report
done before your boss yells at you
now your boss is yelling at you and
you sure is hell won't put up with his
rudeness and suddenly you are jumping
up and down on his desk
calling him names
like goofball, nitwit,
Yet, you are still sitting there, breathing
but you were not aware of it.
You were living in your thoughts.
You will get caught up
in your thoughts like this
a million times,
but every time you
catch yourself lost in your thoughts,
come back to now.
Come back to
sitting and breathing
watching the thoughts
come and go.
In this way
you will be able to spend
longer periods of time
as the witness of thoughts
instead of the thinker.
The thoughts will become
dreams and visions.
long gaps of silence
and the nurturing peace
