The Shores of the Cosmic Ocean....
"The surface of the Earth is the shore of the
cosmic ocean. On this shore, we've
learned most of what we know. Recently,
we've waded a little way out, maybe
ankle-deep, and the water seems
inviting. The ocean calls. Some part of our
being knows this is where we
came from. We long to return, and we can, because
the cosmos is also within
us. We're made of star stuff. We are a way for the
cosmos to know itself.
~ Carl Sagan

"Whoever knows that he knows must be amazed.
This is both to wonder and to be
lost in a maze: to wonder because knowing
and being is downright weird, and to
be lost in a maze because knowing that
one knows generates a confusion of
echoes in which the original sound is
lost. For when I know that I know, which
one is I? The first which knows,
the second which knows that I know, or the
third which knows that I know
that I know?"
~ Alan Watts, from Beyond Theology: The Art of
The eye that sees, the ear that hears, the
tongue that tastes are only apparatus,
but, the "I" that sees, hears and
tastes is Reality.....
There seem to two kinds of searchers: those who
seek to make their ego
something other than it is, i.e. holy, happy,
unselfish (as though you could make a
fish unfish), and those who understand
that all such attempts are just
gesticulation and play-acting, that there is
only one thing that can be done, which
is to disidentify themselves with the
ego, by realising its unreality, and by
becoming aware of their eternal
identity with pure being.
Quotes from Wei Wu Wei

A True Master does not ask you for anything or
tell you to do this or that.
Already, you are bewildered doing jumping
jacks, listening to self-improvement
tapes, going to motivational speakers,
and seeking out charismatic gurus. The
Master simply brings attention to
your nature as "Being", and invites you to rest
in your own Heart.
~ Harsh Luthar
The concept that there is a goal and a path to
it is wrong.
We are the goal or peace always.
To get rid of the notion
that we are not peace is all that is required.
~ Ramana Maharshi

No one has actually ever gotten entangled in
phenomena, bodies, minds,
experiences, relationships, etc. We are always
already none other than the One
that is also Many; our real Nature is the
undefined, unstructured, infinite
Openness-Emptiness of Pure Awareness that
is also simultaneously appearing as
all phenomena. We are Formlessness
associated with and permeating forms, but
never born or caught up as these
