      Questions only satisfy the mind and the intellect. They do not help one to
      awaken. It is only when everything is dropped, that you begin to awaken and
      see the futility of questions. 
      ~Robert Adams
       
       
       
      In this valley, love is represented by fire, and reason by smoke. When love
      comes, reason disappears. Reason cannot live with the folly of love; love has
      nothing to do with human reason. If you possessed inner sight, the atoms of the
      visible world would be manifested to you. But if you look at things with the
      eye of ordinary reason you will never understand how necessary it is to love.
      Only a man who has been tested and is free can feel this. He who understands
      this journey should have a thousand hearts so that he can sacrifice one at
      every moment.
      ~Attâr
       
      Love makes the world less worldly, less dense, more transparent to the divine
      dimension, the light of consciousness itself.
      ~Eckhart Tolle
       
       
      Question: "Brahman is real. The world is illusion" Yet others say, "The world
      is reality." Which is true?
       
      Sri Ramana Maharshi: Both statements are true. They refer to different
      stages of development and are spoken from different points of view. The
      aspirant starts with the definition, that which is real exists always. Then he
      eliminates the world as unreal because it is changing. The seeker ultimately
      reaches the Self and there finds unity as the prevailing note. Then, that which
      was originally rejected as being unreal is found to be a part of the unity.
      Being absorbed in the reality, the world also is real. There is only being in
      Self-realisation, and nothing but being.
       
      Question: Sri Bhagavan (Ramana Maharshi) often says that Maya (illusion) and
      reality are the same. How can that be?
       
      Sri Ramana Maharshi:  1. Brahman is real, 2. The universe is unreal, and 3. The
      universe is Brahman.
       
       
       
      If you see the illusion you are enlightened, but if you think that you are
      enlightened you are in the illusion! 
      ~ Papaji
       
      How do you let go of attachment to things? Don’t even try. It’s impossible. 
      Attachment to things drops away by itself when you no longer seek to find 
      yourself in them.

      Be
       
      "There is a reality even prior to heaven and earth;
      Indeed, it has no form, much less a name;
      Eyes fail to see it;
      It has no voice for ears to detect;
      To call it Mind or Buddha violates its nature,
      For it then becomes like a visionary flower in the air;
      It is not Mind, nor Buddha;
      Absolutely quiet, and yet illuminating in a mysterious way,
      It allows itself to be perceived only by the clear-eyed."
       
      ~Daio Kokushi
       
       
      Who Am I?
       
      Feel your reality,
      In the stillness,
      In the quietness,
      When there is no mind,
      No thoughts, no words.
       
      Who are you then?
      You just are.
       
      I AM.  I AM.
      I am not this.
      I am not that. 
      I AM.
       
      I am That which has always been.
      I am That which will always be.
       
      I AM THAT I AM.
       
      ~Robert Adams
