Beauty is the experience of the inside self and the outside object or world dissolving...- Rupert Spiraphoto by Alan Larus
.What most civilized people mean by "I" is a hallucination, a false sense
of personal identity that is at a complete variance with the facts of nature...Our environment is not something other then ourselves, in assuming that it is,
we have made a great mistake and we are now paying the price for it...- Alan Watts
via Roxanne Chapeldaine on Facebook"Do not just look for what you want to see,
that would be futile.
Do not look for anything,
but allow the insight to have a chance to come by itself.
That insight will help liberate you."
- Thich Nhat Hanh

Yield and overcome;
Bend and be straight;
Empty and be full;
Wear out and be new;
Have little and gain;
Have much and be confused.Therefore wise men embrace the one
and set an example to all.
Not putting on a display,
They shine forth.
Not justifying themselves,
They are distinguished.
They receive recogntion.
They never falter.
They do not quarrel,
So no one quarrels with them.
Therefore the ancients say, "Yield and overcome."
Is that an empty saying?
Be really whole,
And all things will come to you.- Lao-tzuvia Along The Way
In reality only the Ultimate is. The rest
is a matter of name and form. And as long
as you cling to the idea that only what has
name and shape exists, the Supreme will
appear to you non-existing. When you
understand that names and shapes are
hollow shells without any content whatsoever,
and what is real is nameless and formless,
pure energy of life and light of consciousness,
you will be at peace - immersed in the deep
silence of reality.- Nisargadatta Maharajvia Along The Way
Grains of Sand Under Microscope
When you realize your integral connection with
the Absolute, you will realize in every sand
particle, in every dust particle, everywhere is God
himself. That is meditation. You need not close
your eyes and sit in the meditation hall. The
moment you are aware of this, you are in a
state of meditation. That is the way to be happy.
Otherwise you are happy inside the meditation
hall and unhappy outside.
- Swami Krishnanandavia Along The Way
You can't escape love. Once you touch it you get lost. Nothing ever
exists that can come out again. Everything is discharged and becomes
That itself. When the river enters the ocean it does not return.- Papaji
