- I look deep into my heart,
to the core where wisdom arises.
Wisdom comes from the Unnamable
...and unifies heaven and earth.
The Unnamable is always with you,
shining from the depths of your heart.~ (A Book of Psalms, trans. and adapted by Stephen Mitchell)posted by Belle Heywood to FacebookPlayfully, you hid from me.
All day I looked.
Then I discovered
I was you,
and the celebration
of That began.
14th Century North Indian mysticposted to Along The wayDo realize that it is not you who moves from dream to dream, but the dreams
flow before you, and you are the immutable witness. No happening affects your
real being - that is the absolute truth.
~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj"The sensations in the mind that we explain at such length are on the level of
labels. Only when there is awareness right at awareness will you really know
that the mind that's aware of awareness doesn't send its knowing outside this
awareness. There are no issues. Nothing can be concocted in the mind when it
knows in this way."

Between a good artist
And a great oneIs:The novice
Will often lay down his tool
Or brushThen pick up an invisible club
On the mind's tableAnd helplessly smash the easels and
Jade.Whereas the vintage man
No longer hurts himself or anyoneAnd keeps on

Translations by Daniel Ladinsky
posted to Along The way“In the heart of a human being,
emptiness becomes love.
When we touch that Source,
instantly the love is present.
Literally, the divine becomes human
and the human becomes divine.”
~ AdyashantiIn this essential satsang, Adyashanti explores two fundamentally different
motivations that human beings bring to spirituality. He first shows how the
psychological desire to feel better and be constantly happy only leads to
persistent suffering. He then reveals how the existential drive to see what's
really true regardless of our emotional state can free us to discover the
simplicity and happiness of what we already are.
