and as you go looking for it
through a forest of seeking
be careful lest you bump into a tree.
That lump on your head
May remind you that
everything is God.
You are like a forest dweller
Looking for the forest.
What am I to do?
Each crackling leaf beneath your feet
is a personal invitation
to come to your senses.
Has it ever occurred to you
that you are seeking God
with His eyes? (Adyashanti)

The crux of man’s dilemma lies in the concept of time. While chasing his mythical happiness of the future, man has no time to enjoy the present moment. And actually there is no such thing as the present because by the time one thinks of it, it has already become the past. Therefore, what is vital is not thinking about the present but actually being that present moment – and that is nothing other than enlightenment.
In order to understand this strange, unknown, starkly inevitable thing called death we must first understand life. What we must find out is what we are now. To die now to every moment and every experience is the death that is ETERNITY ITSELF. (RAMESH S . BALSEKAR)

You are the unchangeable Awareness in which all activity takes place.
Always rest in peace.
You are eternal Being, unbounded and undivided.
Just keep Quiet.
All is well.
Keep Quiet Here and Now.
You are Happiness, you are Peace, you are Freedom.
Do not entertain any notions that you are in trouble.
Be kind to yourself.
Open to your Heart and simply Be. - Papaji

Meditation means awareness. Whatsoever you do with awareness is meditation. Action is not the question, but the quality that you bring to your action. Walking can be a meditation if you walk alertly. Sitting can be a meditation if you sit alertly. Listening to the birds can be a meditation if you listen with awareness. Just listening to the inner noise of your mind can be a meditation if you remain alert and watchful. The whole point is: one should not move in sleep. Then whatsoever you do is meditation.

For me, the purpose (or meaning, if you like) of life is to shift one's centre of gravity from who I thought I was to Who I AM. `Seeing' is important only as a means to this End - which is to be the Absolute Mystery, to know oneself as Absolutely Incomprehensible. There's no joy like this! - Douglas Harding

the true self is as clear as the brilliant sun.
Underneath the layers and layers of conditioning
accumulated over the course of a lifetime is a Buddha
whose light shines throughout the whole universe.
Inside the ego shell of conditioning,
a glimmer of that light is actually
what brings us to practice to begin with.
It is the bodhicitta, the bodhi mind,
the mind that says it does't make sense
that there should be all this pain and suffering,
or that it should be so difficult to just be ourselves
the way a tree can just be a tree or a dog can just be a dog.
We humans seem to have a complicated time
with just simply being human. We fight with each other,
kill each other; we bang heads all the time,
even with the ones we love.

you lose touch with yourself.
When you lose touch with yourself,
you lose yourself in the world.
Your innermost sense of self,
of who you are, is inseparable from stillness.
This is the I Am that is deeper than name and form.
