Through meditation on objects, we learn. Through meditation on action, we change. Through meditation on non-action, we accept. Through meditation on subject, we know our True nature.
We are self-evident; with a penchant for wearing and admiring masks.
We are not enlightened. We are the light. And we are the darkness too. We are everything. And nothing too. The simplicity of what we are is indescribable and that is why it cannot be understood. Understanding requires two and we are not two. That can only be Realized.
There is no self-realization per se. There is the simple removal of self-ignorance.
At some point on our paths we say that there is no choice, all happens. That thought is a side-effect from the Glimpse of Truth. But it is not accurate as it is an expression of the separate self after the fact. There is choice. All happens, including choice.
Choice is one of the cogs in the mechanism of the law of cause and effect, or law of karma.
Concepts are not the truth. However, some concepts reflect the Truth and some concepts lead further into falseness, especially those surrounding the concept "I".
The road to hell is paved with intentions.
Pure Consciousness is not an achievement of presence; it is a Realization of what is never absent.
"School" is the desire to know and the ability to listen. Not a mysterious thing hidden in the mountains of Asia or in closed groups or secret societies.
When the thought "I am present" arises we already are on the highway to hell. Heaven is a state of being where there is an absence. Realizing what is absent is equal to Self-Knowledge.
The inability to forgive doubles the suffering.
Understanding the impersonal nature of emotional pain enables its transcendence. True forgiveness. We move on from past trauma. A necessary step into freedom from unnecessary suffering.
There is no "self" in Self-Realization.
The person is one of the many objects that appear in, and arises out of, the Consciousness that We Are.
The false sense of self produces defensiveness. It is based on fear of "me" being harmed. If the sense of self is Consciousness no harm is possible. And thus fear is absent.
The verb to be is the most used, and is the least understood.
The sense of separation is the root of psychological suffering. The root of psychological suffering is not lack of money, time, friends, attention, coffee, sex, experiences, eternal life or anything else.
We are not conscious. We are Consciousness.
Becoming conscious is not the end of the path; it is the beginning of the end. The end of the path is losing all that we once believed we had become.
The manifestation is the tree. "I Am" is the seed. Spirit is the ground that sustains and absorbs them.
The reason the human species as a society is in the sorry state it is in now rests solely on the ground of self-ignorance. For the simple reason that we are Everything. And if we know in the depth of our being that we are Everything we will never harm anything, never waste anything and never abuse anything. We will be indeed good-householders of life and of this planet. Someone who realized Truth of Self is a good-householder of the universe.
On the spiritual path there is a time to be exhorted to harness our inner power. And then there is a time for the realization that we have no power at all and rest as the peace of that Powerlessness. Total Acceptance.
