Quotes




True wisdom is not knowing.

The ultimate Truth can never be spoken, it can only be lived as a life in constant remembrance with our eternal Reality as it is.
 
Evolution is the Remembrance of who we really are. True knowledge is the end of experience.  Realization is that there has never been two.

True Non-Duality is the realization of Love as a state of Consciousness.  Love is the Infinite Silence perpetually surrendering itself to itself.  This universe is the reflection and expression of that surrender.

There is a 'Nothing' that is more profound than the 'experience of Nothing'.

Awakening is like the felling of the tree of 'me'.  Embodiment is the drying and burning of that tree into soft, warm ash.

In essence the only answer to the question of 'how do I live this (one's awakening) in the life' is to find a depth and solidity of Silence within us that is weightier than any movement that could possibly emerge in our experience.

The natural state of identity is to dis-identify.
 
This Rest, this Stillness, is never so happy as when it sees itself unveiled from illusion.  This is true Love, true Joy.

There is just 'Rest', awake Wordlessness, that acts as an internal gravitational field within every speck of existence, calling itself Home.

Initially the Transcendent Peace may seem to be an experience but eventually it is revealed to be the end of experience.  It's where all activity returns after it has served its function.  Its where the experience of Peace and its experiencer dissolve into One. 
 
Illusion and ignorance is anything that believes that it is not 'This'.  The world wakes up to 'This' when we give everything within ourselves that doesn't believe its Wholeness back to 'This'.  This is our highest duty, our highest service.
 
This direct experience of 'Rest' doesn't need anything to uphold its reality.  It doesn't need words.  It doesn't need teachings.  It doesn't need you.  It is, and because It is, you are.  
 
We can say things like deepening or embodiment but all that is really meant by these words is allowing 'This' to absorb everything within us.  
 
We can allow everything to be released into this 'Rest'.  Every contraction and constriction, every fear, every insecurity, every unworthiness.  Its all welcomed Home.  
 
Surrender is a word that means giving up.  When we give up completely we find ourselves at rest, the Rest that everything is. 
 
At the end of our seeking, at the end of our search for knowledge, we discover that there is nothing to seek for, nothing to become.  There is just the non-action of enjoying 'Rest', enjoying everything as it is.
 
We can sometimes think that Love is an action, but the deepest essence of Love is allowing everything to be as it is. 
 
The entire spiritual evolution can simply be understood as developing the capacity to stay open and surrendered to whatever wants to arise and pass away through us in every moment of our lives.
 
We don't need to be perfect, we just need to be Present.
 
In this very moment, what is mindful of being mindful?

All that is necessary to awaken to yourself as the radiant emptiness of spirit is to stop seeking something more or better or different, and to turn your attention inward to the awake silence that you are.

Spiritual seekers look for self-realization or enlightenment in the future. To be a seeker implies that you need the future.  If this is what you believe, it becomes true for you; you will need time until you realize that you don't need time to be who you are.

 ~~~
Real meditation is not about mastering a technique; it's about letting go of control.   True meditation is letting go of manipulating our experience.

Your happiness is always with you.  Your bliss is always there.  It cannot be anywhere else.  Bliss and the Self are One and always with you.  One day, perhaps now, you realize that what you are searching for is what is searching.  There is always nowhere to go.  You are already Home.  You are always already Home.

May we be those who shall renew this existence.
