      "A mind that is awake, intelligent, free,
      why should it need, why should it have
      any 'experience' at all?
      Light is light; it does not ask for more Light."
      ~ J Krishnamurti
      via Amrita Nadi on Daily Dharma

      Blending with the wind,
      Snow falls;
      Blending with the snow,
      The wind blows.
      By the hearth
      I stretch out my legs,
      Idling my time away
      Confined in this hut.
      Counting the days,
      I find that February, too,
      Has come and gone
      Like a dream.

      "Luckily no spiritual path, when actually practiced, is ever what you thought it
      would be. If it was it would be limited to the size of deluded projection. "
      Rumi, Hafiz, said many many things … some sweet as sugar, greeting card
      material, some harsh as flame. To choose the one and ignore the other turns
      spiritual nectar into pabulum. Nisargadatta, Ramana said many things about not
      seeking but they also said many things about the fierce work needed. To give up
      spiritual seeking while preserving other types of seeking is truly lamentable.
      Dzogchen says many things about everything being the play of luminous wisdom
      awareness and also points out the need to differentiate between mind’s nature
      and its confusions .. to play the relative off against the ultimate in order to
      avoid spiritual work is the way to perpetual immaturity. Maturity comes when
      one ceases to use spirituality to gild the bars of the cage, and instead one uses it
      to remove the veils which obscure living realization.

      Incredible interview. This is gold!
      David Godman is one of the best articulator of Ramana's teachings, at least to
      the Western conditioned mind. The biggest value here is the revelation that the
      English writings (or translations) describing Ramana's death experience are very
      limited. Once we understood the way Ramana described this in Tamil (or Telugu)
      the whole experience gets a much deeper meaning and makes perfect sense in
      terms of Self Inquiry. Absolute Gold, thank you for posting this.
