That is because this whole world is already truth. Just see. Just
hear. Just smell. From moment to moment, the universe is always
giving us a very wonderful Dharma speech about the nature of
truth. The sky is blue. The trees are green. Salt tastes salty;
sugar is sweet. When you see, when you hear, when you smell,
when you taste, when you touch, when you think - everything,
just-like-this, is the truth.~Seung Sahn

persistence, you will achieve all the things that... oh never mind.Hey, it's OK to be passionate about an issue and take a stand.
Really, it doesn't mean you're a bigot, or a failed non-dualist.
It means you are alive.A monk remains in the unbounded. A warrior, while inwardly at
rest in the unbounded, makes bold choices to act in the world of
boundaries. There is no conflict.It's so boring when everyone agrees. It's so boring when
everyone argues. Agree to love, then frolic in differences."Love bears me away where there is no longer any shore." ~Al-Hallaj
A lover cries out, but not with words.
So prayer is an inner music
that does not speak Gods name.
Love and prayer keep night's secret
like the ocean of stars,
yet the hollow of the spine cannot contain it.
What gushes out is a language of sighs and glances,
sometimes through the heart, sometimes the crown.
Haven't you felt some breath hovering over you,
longing to anoint the soft spot that used to be there?
This language is known only to those
who let the waves have their way with them.
Waves of what? Waves of whose reflection
in the waters of abysmal delight?
Friend, if you're still crying, "help!"
You haven't finished drowning.via Fred LaMotteLiberation is our very nature. We are that.
The very fact that we wish for liberation
shows that freedom from all bondage is our
real nature. It is not to be freshly acquired.
All that is necessary is to get rid of the false
notion that we are bound. When we achieve
that, there will be no desire or thought of any
sort. So long as one desires liberation, so
long, you may take it, one is in bondage.
~Sri Ramana Maharshivia Along The WayIn Gita 10:32 Krishna says, "I am the beginning and the end."In Revelations 22:13 Jesus says, "I am the beginning and the end."
Are they the same voice, the same Am speaking through different faces?
You also say I Am.
Who is Christ, who is Krishna, if not the soul of your soul,the heart of your heart, the silent Am who witnesses your I,just as the still unfathomable ocean rests inside each wave?~Fred LaMotte
