how can time help you

~

How can time help you? Time is a succession of moments, each moment appears out of nothing and disappears into nothing, never to reappear. How can you build on something so fleeting? Look to yourself for the permanent. Dive deep within and find what is real in you. Whatever happens, it happens to you. Find the Subject of all that you are as a person. Even if I tell you that you are the witness, the silent watcher, it will mean nothing to you, unless you find the way to your own being. Give up all your questions, except one. Who am I? After all the only fact you are sure of is that you are. The ‘I am’ is certain. The ‘I am this’ is not. Struggle to find out what you are in reality.

remove all becoming

~

Remove all becoming, you are Being. Becoming is effort, being is no effort. You are always That…. Do not run away from worldly activities, only always keep in the “I am Self”. stay as the screen on which all projected activities take place. In all activities simply keep Quiet and know “I am home”.

the human race

~

The human race is a single being
Created from one jewel.
If one member is struck
All must feel the blow.
Only someone who cares for the pain of others
Can truly be called human.

for those who live

~

For those who live in Self as the beauty devoid of thought, there is nothing which should be thought of. That which should be adhered to is only the experience of silence, because in that supreme state nothing exists to be attained other than oneself. All other knowledges are only petty and trivial knowledges; the experience of silence alone is the real and perfect knowledge.

we can make our minds

~

We can make our minds
so like still water
that beings gather about us
that they may see,
it may be, their own images,
and live for a moment with a clearer,
perhaps even with a fiercer life
because of our quiet,
our silence.

~ William Butler Yeats ~

the light of the soul

~

 

The light of the soul throws sparks, can set up flares, builds fires, causes proper matters to catch fire. To display the lantern of the soul in shadowy times like these, to be fierce and to show mercy toward others, both, are acts of immense bravery and greatest necessity. Struggling souls catch lights from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it.

when we realize

~

When we realize in our own experience that happiness comes not from reaching out but from letting go, not from seeking pleasurable experience but from opening up in the moment to what is true, this transformation of understanding then frees the energy of compassion within us. Our minds are no longer bound up in pushing away pain or holding on to pleasure. Compassion becomes the natural response of an open heart.

wisdom means

~

Wisdom means “to see” or “to know”. It does not mean knowing facts or having an opinion. Wisdom is uncovered by being present enough to perceive the essence of your whole experience. This wisdom will help you attend to what matters in your life and understand the meaning of your life’s changes. The practice of moment-to-moment PRESENCE is key. Seeing essence; knowing wholeness.

in the seed

~

In the seed, the genes whisper: stretch out for the light and seek the dark. And the tree seeks the light, it stretches out for the dark and the more darkness it finds, the more light it uncovers.

clouds come floating 2

~

Clouds come floating into my life,

no longer to carry rain or usher storm,

but to add color to my sunset sky.
