This bliss, this divinity, this whatever it is, is outside all imaginings of thought. It is completely new and reborn. It is simultaneous birth and death, construction and destruction, start and finish.
[10.5 months ago]
Liberation is not about being submissive. It is not a matter of just taking whatever comes your way. Liberation is seeing things as they truly are.
[10.5 months ago]
You cannot exorcise the ghost residing in your mind. You are that very ghost.
[10.6 months ago]
A natural state is just that: natural. It has nothing to do with making the right decisions.
[10.6 months ago]
Don't try to be free. Don't hope to be free. Don't want to be free. Don't even think you can or cannot be free. Be free.
[10.6 months ago]
True liberation is at the end. The end is the beginning.
[10.7 months ago]
🙚 November 🙘
[10.7 months ago]
All of these things – whatever feelings or thoughts you might have, good or bad – are your greatest teachings. You must begin with what you have, and not with what you think is better.
[10.7 months ago]
The doer: A person that believes they can somehow control or wrangle Truth. An image living within an image.
[10.7 months ago]
If war has ended within you, your actions become clear. Everywhere you move, peace moves with you.
[10.8 months ago]
If there is surrender, it will happen despite everything you’ve done to make it happen.
[10.8 months ago]
The monument of the self. Such an impressive, yet precarious, structure of thought. How do you see it?
[10.8 months ago]
Sit with it all and see where it goes. But don’t expect to watch a specific event or occurrence. Watch whatever happens to be there.
[10.9 months ago]
There is no interpretation to gain from.
[10.9 months ago]
It is a gentle reduction of the unnecessary. Do not try to force anything.
[10.9 months ago]
There are no higher or lower states. There is only the state you are in.
[11.0 months ago]
Many people say this or that is useless or meaningless only because someone told them so. But how useful or meaningful is that?
[11.0 months ago]
Non-essentials fall away to reveal the necessities.
[11.0 months ago]
You have no problems.
[11.1 months ago]
Forget hurricanes, tornadoes, or tsunami; you are the most destructive force in this world.
[11.1 months ago]
Is love a paradigm? Is love based on patterns of thought? Some say yes. But is that all love is?
[11.1 months ago]
Stop accepting or rejecting and just look.
[11.2 months ago]
Is there hope for anyone outside of your belief system?
[11.2 months ago]
You cannot get what you already have.
[11.2 months ago]
Go deep and see if anything is really there.
[11.3 months ago]
It is as natural as breathing. It is life.
[11.3 months ago]
Is there a better, more grand experience, or is there just experience?
[11.3 months ago]
Smile as you enter every room, and leave when your presence is no longer needed. If asked, help anyone you can. Help them find their own worth, so that they might do the same for others.
[11.4 months ago]
The individual can only feel connection to those things important to its continuity.
[11.4 months ago]
We move from place to place, wanting to find the Truth. When we cannot find it with guru A, system B, or religion C, we move on to the next target. We are victims of the search.
[11.4 months ago]
Let’s be kind to thought. It is an innocent victim. If it weren’t for your ability to think, you would never have gone down this road in the first place.
[11.5 months ago]
There are no thoughts to avoid, only thoughts to witness.
[11.5 months ago]
See all things as they arise within you. See it for yourself.
[11.5 months ago]
Some of us enter relationships in order to avoid, or smother, our own loneliness. Motivated by the fear of being alone. There is no desire to relate, only silence the pain.
[11.6 months ago]
Appreciate the gurus and old masters, but do not depend on them to set you free. Your burdens are heavy enough without the added weight of their words.
[11.6 months ago]
Liberation is not a matter of more knowledge.
[11.6 months ago]
Be careful if you say you are All One. Are you using it as a foolproof path to selfishness? It is not just a means for you to do whatever suits a particular greed or desire. All One is completely free of that.
[11.7 months ago]
Liberation is a mysterious stranger. You'll never know anything about her from a distance. Cross the street to meet her, and take a closer look.
[11.7 months ago]
🙚 October 🙘
[11.7 months ago]
Permanence has no truth.
[11.7 months ago]
We have created all of this suffering that has gone on in the world. The death, the struggle, the horror, is all the result of what we believe.
[11.8 months ago]
Do not assume there is a something to surrender, or if there is even one capable of surrender.
[11.8 months ago]
Any conclusion you reach will be made through belief or knowledge. So where does that put you?
[11.8 months ago]
We think we can have everything by having everything. We must question this.
[11.9 months ago]
In finding out, there is no expectation of what is supposed to be. There is just honest, passionate curiosity.
[11.9 months ago]
If you sit within your own conclusions, you no longer want to find the real. You only wish to see what you already believe to be true.
[11.9 months ago]
Are you, the separator, in some way different from what is being separated?
[12.0 months ago]
Is it possible to have a non-dual concept?
[12.0 months ago]
Things seem to change from time to time. You may even find yourself letting go of things you may have once felt necessary. But has anything really changed?
[12.0 months ago]
Can anything truly be called our own?
[12.1 months ago]
As a human being; a brilliantly vibrant living being; you are beautiful, whole, and complete. Never let anyone convince you otherwise.
[12.1 months ago]
Is compassion a concept? If I have a concept – a generic idea – can that in any way touch this fullness of life?
[1.0 year ago]
There are, of course, thoughts. But none of them are yours.
[1.0 year ago]
One might believe that one is compassionate, but what does belief have to do with compassion?
[1.0 year ago]
The search automatically brings in the notion that there is something missing.
[1.0 year ago]
If one is serious, they take it to the very end, not relying on knowledge to answer for them.
[1.0 year ago]
You sit on a rock next to a tree and a person walks by. Your physical eyes look at the person. What is there? Find out, my friend.
[1.0 year ago]
What is being sought, and who is doing the seeking?
[1.0 year ago]
Are you interested in enlightenment, or what you can get from it?
[1.0 year ago]
We look outward for the missing element, instead of seeing that it was always here.
[1.0 year ago]
Awareness comes in like a truck through the wall, and it obliterates everything in its path. That wave washes over everything and all is one.
[1.0 year ago]
Liberation is beyond the normal capabilities of thought. It is not dependent upon knowledge, or what has come before. It is a freshness that permeates throughout everything and touches all.
[1.0 year ago]
All of the thoughts you hate will set you free.
[1.0 year ago]
Liberation is freedom in every direction.
[1.0 year ago]
Are you really interested in relationship, or are you simply trying to placate loneliness or some other feeling?
[1.0 year ago]
Is the self capable of love?
[1.0 year ago]
It is not that we have forgotten compassion… …we just spend all of our time wishing things were different from what they actually are.
[1.0 year ago]
If you seek it, you will never find it.
[1.0 year ago]
This freedom is not a simple matter of letting go. Who is this entity hoping to free itself?
[1.0 year ago]
🙚 September 🙘
[1.0 year ago]
The only state you have, is the one you are in. To sit with what is present and work from there, is all one can really do.
[1.0 year ago]
Do not expect anyone to do this for you. They cannot.
[1.1 years ago]
Do not be angry and look outward; be anger and look inward.
[1.1 years ago]
Liberation will arrive when it arrives. It is your job to get out of the way when it happens.
[1.1 years ago]
Holding violence in the mind is one of the most destructive things we do to our bodies.
[1.1 years ago]
Curiosity implies you really want to find out what is within, not find what you already believe to be there. One is full of life, the other is dead.
[1.1 years ago]
If there is an answer to your suffering, it is to become very serious about your life and find out what is there.
[1.1 years ago]
Is liberation achieved through action? If you say yes, how do you know it to be true? Is it due to what others have told you?
[1.1 years ago]
In order to see things as they arise within us, we cannot resist or condemn.
[1.1 years ago]
There may be harsh words thrown around, but why do they hurt us? Who is the victim being threatened or humiliated?
[1.1 years ago]
The searcher feels the need to create something better, while simultaneously pushing the bad away. It never works.
[1.1 years ago]
Start with you. Your own words. Your own thoughts. It is all right there for you to see.
[1.1 years ago]
Questioning is not a reaction based on belief.
[1.1 years ago]
Compassion is natural. Why is it you need to be taught anything about it?
[1.1 years ago]
Is the self in any way capable of sensitivity?
[1.1 years ago]
Can you cast aside everything and see belief for what it is?
[1.1 years ago]
A word is just a sound. And this sound, if it is to be interpreted, needs an interpreter.
[1.1 years ago]
There is nothing seen, and no one is seeing it.
[1.1 years ago]
Consciousness contains the memories, experiences, thoughts, and other mental constructs of the mind. What else is there?
[1.1 years ago]
If you must live in a world of thought, at least go about it in a way that is pleasant for everyone. Live in a way that is beneficial for all human beings.
[1.1 years ago]
The individual is limited by the walls of its own design.
[1.1 years ago]
Without attachment, thoughts are seen as a beautiful movement. The ebb and flow of thought is wonderful to behold.
[1.1 years ago]
If thought were truly aware of itself, it would only be aware within its own limited field. It can only relate to itself through what it already knows. Nothing new springs forth.
[1.1 years ago]
Meditation never ends. The cushion is not necessary.
[1.1 years ago]
If you say you are there, if you know you are there, if you believe you are there, you are lost.
[1.1 years ago]
Your idea of a person freezes out any chance of seeing them as they actually are. You’ll only see your image of the person, and never the real thing.
[1.1 years ago]
Violence is not the nature of man; it is the nature of thought.
[1.1 years ago]
Everything is new at every moment. Memory stays put, arising only when necessary.
[1.1 years ago]
Please slow down. Take a deep breath. Repeat.
[1.1 years ago]
All of your effort to be free strengthens the shackles of confinement.
[1.1 years ago]
🙚 August 🙘
[1.1 years ago]
One would not ‘let go’ unless they felt something was wrong in the first place. But there is absolutely nothing wrong with you. You lack nothing.
[1.1 years ago]
The self perceives the outer world as separate; something that is over there while I am over here. But what is really happening?
[1.1 years ago]
How can anyone be angry at a sound?
[1.1 years ago]
If there is a path, it will be one of your own exploration, devoid of all interference apart from your own activity. In that place, there is every possibility, and it is not limited by what you accept or believe to be true.
[1.1 years ago]
Anger helps to solidify the self. You never feel more real than when you are angry. It weighs heavy in the mind.
[1.1 years ago]
You see the search as futile, but at the same time, you think you need it in order to gain something.
[1.1 years ago]
Find out now. Everything is at stake.
[1.1 years ago]
Question your own statements.
[1.2 years ago]
If someone is hateful to you, or if you have been insulted, you may feel some kind of pain. But who is being hurt?
[1.2 years ago]
There are no other people. No one to bring you hurt, no one to leave a scar. If one hurts you with a word, where does it leave its mark?
[1.2 years ago]
You see the fact, ugly or not, and that is the truth that sets one free, not looking for something better.
[1.2 years ago]
When belief rises to answer the question, question the belief that rises.
[1.2 years ago]
You must see with your own eyes. It is the only way.
[1.2 years ago]
It takes some strength for the self to come up against what it believes to be true.
[1.2 years ago]
When compassion seethes through every pore on your body, the idea of being compassionate will escape you. You will move, and compassion will be there. And that is all.
[1.2 years ago]
If one’s mind is separate, broken, and incapable of operating clearly, can that mind know what it means to be compassionate?
[1.2 years ago]
It is fulfilling and meaningful to see the person; to be there with them as being unfolds. It is a moment frozen in time, as the past falls away. But due to the nature of being, there is no moment to be frozen. It can only exist as a monument in our me...
[1.2 years ago]
Why do you place such value on your perceptions?
[1.2 years ago]
Contemplation means, the act of looking. But when the self looks, it does not actually see; it only interprets from what it already knows.
[1.2 years ago]
If a cat comes into the room and you see it, you might say that you are aware of the cat. But what happens if the cat is seen, but there is no one there to be aware of anything?
[1.2 years ago]
There is no possible way to know enlightenment. Once thought has solidified something in order to better control and understand it, the thing is dead.
[1.2 years ago]
We disconnect from oneness, thinking we will have security, only to want to go back to nothingness because there is no security.
[1.2 years ago]
The energy of liberation is massive. It bursts through the room and reaches out into infinity. As one sits in the chair, aliveness seems to pulse, like a metronome that counts in waves, not in beats. This energy engulfs all. It is the purest essence of...
[1.2 years ago]
It is an awareness of the whole movement of thought. This is an altogether different kind of functioning.
[1.2 years ago]
When you sit in order to see, you must go slowly. Don’t instantly fall back on what you already know and have memorized. Leave space for the meaning to become apparent without your effort.
[1.2 years ago]
The question you might want to explore: “Is it possible to be completely present with every single human being I come into contact with?” Find out.
[1.2 years ago]
You might think you can only have a relationship with someone you know… …someone known to you through your memories of them. If that is how you perceive things, it is quite possible that you have never related with anything.
[1.2 years ago]
You are nature. And naturalness is the nature of nature.
[1.2 years ago]
One must be truly alone to discover whatever lies inside. One must set everything aside, for perhaps the very first time, and travel alone.
[1.2 years ago]
You will live until you die. The beginning and ending is certain. But what will you do with the long middle act?
[1.2 years ago]
When sitting with nature, do not look for answers. Look with nature and share in all of these parallel movements.
[1.2 years ago]
🙚 July 🙘
[1.2 years ago]
None of us knows what will happen. One can only sit with oneself and see how it all unfurls.
[1.2 years ago]
It is a very clean and clear movement bringing peace in its wake. There is no evil that can stand against it.
[1.2 years ago]
To even approach this will require all of your attention and energy.
[1.2 years ago]
If someone insults you, and you become angry, do you ever ask Why am I angry? It is such a simple question, but no one ever asks.
[1.2 years ago]
You have seen it clearly. Now what do you do?
[1.2 years ago]
Taking a single step is going too far.
[1.2 years ago]
Be prepared to take it to the end. Do not be too timid in your explorations.
[1.2 years ago]
No one can give it to you.
[1.2 years ago]
Words will always be imperfect, but we do the best we can with what we have.
[1.2 years ago]
The room stays the same, no matter how colorful the new curtains are.
[1.2 years ago]
Don't move! It is there, right in front of you.
[1.2 years ago]
There is no NOW.
[1.2 years ago]
Too much energy is spent on resisting or countering everything that comes into view. No amount of pushing will ever clear one’s mind or ease one’s suffering.
[1.3 years ago]
You… …are not.
[1.3 years ago]
Self-Development. LOL…
[1.3 years ago]
Be. There is nothing else.
[1.3 years ago]
Sit with whatever it happens to be.
[1.3 years ago]
What is it that contemplates?
[1.3 years ago]
If you think you know it, you are mistaken.
[1.3 years ago]
Enlightenment – if we can use that word – is beyond thought. It is alive-ness that is beyond what we have known.
[1.3 years ago]
Nothing more and nothing less.
[1.3 years ago]
It may seem blinding or frenetic or smoggy, but it is the height of love and beauty. It is all there for you, but it is not necessarily happening to you.
