Let go of control

Each moment is another chance to let go of control. Life can be really and truly simple if we don't fight it. Ripe seekers understand that existance cannot be fully entered with ego in hand; thus they let go of control and allow the flow of life to live them. They live less from the mind and more from the heart.

One Man Show

Consciousness has produced this play.
Consciousness has written the script.
Consciousness is playing all the characters.
And Consciousness is witnessing the play.
It's a one man show.

Fire of Now

Growth rarely happens just by reading books or listening to teachers.
It requires immersion in the fire of Now. ( Maitreya Ishwara )

Be still and know that I am God.
Be still and know that I am.
Be still and know.
Be still.

Come To Your Senses

There is only one Truth
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?

Listen friend
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)

One instant is eternity,
eternity is in the now;
When you see through this one instant,
you see through the one who sees. ( Wu-Men )

Here and Now

Life is only this place,
this time
and these people right
here and Now.

Being the Present Moment

Everything that happens in the present moment is necessary.
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)

The Now

Focus your attention on the Now
and tell me what problem
you have at this moment. ( Eckhart Tolle )

Pure Presence

The Self doesn't live forever in time,
it lives in the timeless present prior to time,
prior to history, change, succession.
The Self is present as Pure Presence,
not as everlasting duration,
a rather horrible notion.

Grace happens when you accept. Struggle happens when you reject or resist. Grace is natural. Struggle is unnatrual. Grace is effortless. Struggle takes great effort. Struggle means that you get in the way. Grace means that you stay out of the way.

Conscious Oneness

When the thunder roars, do you not hear your Self? When the lightning cracks, do you not see your Self? When clouds float quietly across the sky, is this not your very own limitless Being, waving back at you?
When I look for myself I find only the world as it is occuring, Herenow. No separation between subject and object other than what mind imposes. Samsara is the delusion that Nirvana is to be obtained. We are, and that is all.

Be Present!

Whenever you notice that some form of negativity has arisen within you, look on it not as a failure, but as a helpful signal that is telling you: "Wake up. Get out of your mind. Be present." - Eckhart Tolle

Be Free!

You have projected onto yourself
a world of your own imagination,
based on memories, on desires and fears,
and you have imprisoned yourself in it.
Break the spell and be free.

Just keep Quiet

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.

There's no joy like this!

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

Underneath the layers of conditioning...

Once all of our conditioning is stripped away,
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.

Inner Stillness

When you lose touch with inner stillness,
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.
