- Being here is not a difficult thing to accomplish.
It is enough to breathe, and let go of thinking and planning.
Just come back to yourself, concentrate on your breath, and smile.~ Thich Nhat Hanh"In the immediate here and now we see the face of the Primordial Buddha
abiding in our heart centre. Identify yourself with him, my spiritual sons.
Whoever denies him, wanting more from somewhere else, is like the man who has
found his elephant but continues to follow its tracks. He may comb the three
dimensions of the microcosmic world systems for an eternity, but he will not find
so much as the name of Buddha other than the one in his heart."~ Lama Shabkar from The Flight of the Garudavia Daily Dharma by Amrita Nadiphoto by Peter SheflerYour True Nature is something never lost to you even in moments of delusion, nor
is it gained at the moment of Enlightenment. It is the Nature of the Suchness. In
it is neither delusion nor right understanding. It fills the Void everywhere and is
intrinsically of the substance of the One Mind. Above, below and around you, All
is spontaneously existing, for there is nowhere which is outside the Buddha Mind.~ Huang Povia Advaita (Nonduality, Oneness, One Love) on FacebookThe true Teacher removes all names and forms and concepts.
The preacher adds them like a noose around your neck.
The preacher clings to you like a vulture clings to a fresh corpse.
The true Teacher will teach only to the extent that can
be absorbed and then send the student away.~ Papajivia Along The Way"If you think I am having more fun
Than anyone on this planet
You are absolutely correct.But HafizIs willing to share all his secrets
About how to befriend Beloved .Indeed, dear ones,
Hafiz is so very willing
To share all his secrets
About how to know the
One.I hold the Lion's Paw whenever I dance.I know the ecstasy of your heart's wings
When they make love against the Sky,And the sun and moon
Will someday argue over
Who will tuck you in at
Night !"~ Hafiz
