  “The Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is inconceivably opulent, who is devoid of all material names, forms and pastimes, and who is all-pervading, is especially merciful to the devotees who worship His lotus feet. Thus He exhibits transcendental forms and names with His different pastimes. May that Supreme Personality of Godhead, whose form is eternal and full of knowledge and bliss, be merciful to me.”~Srimad Bhagavatam 6.4.33

  We are all in this together, and in the transition underway, none of us makes it unless all of us do. Enjoy life, enjoy this process of expansion, and choose love. Move beyond the polarity of good and bad, and of us and them, into singularity. Follow your heart and engage the path of energy


                                               


The Upanishads

 

“The little space within the heart is as great as the vast universe. The heavens and the earth are there, and the sun and the moon and the stars. Fire and lightening and winds are there, and all that now is and all that is not.”

                                                                     


 


Bhagavad Gita


“The very idea of going beyond the dream is illusory. Why go anywhere? Just realize that you are dreaming a dream you call the

world, and stop looking for ways out. The dream is not your problem. Your problem is that you like one part of your dream and not another. Love all, or none of it, and stop complaining. When you have seen the dream as a dream, you have done all that need be done.”

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj from I Am That

These bodies are perishable, but the dwellers in these bodies are eternal, indestructible and impenetrable.

— Bhagavad Gita

                                            

Thich Nhat Hanh

 “Silence is essential. We need silence, just as much as we need air, just as much as plants need light. If our minds are crowded with words and thoughts, there is no space for us.”



Ascension: From Somebodiness To Nobodiness

 


Spiritual rebirth is only possible through your ‘ego-death’. You must die to the false ideas you have of yourself (a default programming of the Matrix) in order to be reborn, as Infinite Consciousness. Otherwise, you will continue to remain a powerless, plugged-in human helplessly dependent on the system.  

Learn to detach from the socialized manufactured reality and reclaim the unbounded joy, love, creativity and freedom of your ‘Nobodiness.’    -Anon I mus (Spiritually Anonymous)


                                                 


Guru Nanak Dev Ji



The Divine Light is within everyone; You are that Light.

From its brilliancy everything is illuminated. By the Guru’s Teachings, this Divine Light is revealed.

There is only Presence and Its projections.

These are not-two.

There is only Consciousness and Its content.

These are not-two.

There is only Awareness and Its display.

These are not-two.

This is the fundamental structure of Reality.

It can be immediately apprehended and directly experienced. Because you, too, are Reality.

This process of examination, elimination and evolution is called Mysticism. It comes in many different forms, but it is universal to humanity. Because it is the most precious, precise, powerful and important undertaking a human being can pursue.

                                                 


Robert Adams, T170: It’s All A Cosmic Joke

 What we call compassion begins to function as you. Loving kindness, peace, these attributes will automatically take over, for you have lost all fear. When you have lost all fear for existence, love automatically takes over. But as long as you fear existence and you think something's wrong somewhere, then the mind blows up all kinds of pictures, and you have to go out and defend yourself and do things, for your own self-aggrandizement.

All is well.


Sogyal Rinpoche

 Our society is dedicated almost entirely to the celebration of ego, with all its sad fantasies about success and power, and it celebrates those very forces of greed and ignorance that are destroying the planet.


RAM DASS

 


The intellect should be the servant of the heart, but just because the heart should be the master dose not mean the intellect should not be used. A courageous heart requires an intellect capable of fighting its master’s battles.
The heart craves truth. The heart craves justice. The heart craves compassion and aid for the victims of cruelty and oppression. In a world such as ours, the heart needs a warrior intellect strong enough to fight the greedy oligarchs, the powerful forces of the secret intelligence services, the warmongers, propagandists and brutal cops, etc.

Fyodor Dostoevsky

 Love all God’s creation, the whole and every grain of sand of it. Love every leaf, every ray of God’s light. Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.

                                                                


-Anon I mus (Spiritually Anonymous)

 Dare to see me beyond the veil of my appearance (race, gender, personality, class, status, etc.)…. deeper into the nameless, formless and timeless realm of universal consciousness that perceives through it.  

 And I will have the courage to do the same for you.

Paramahansa Yogananda ji ♥♥

 The first experiment with religion must begin with silence. Most people never take the time to be silent or to sit quietly in meditation. Hours and hours I remain in inner silence. When I am with people, I enjoy them immensely , I am with them fully and wholeheartedly. But when I am away from people, I am entirely alone in that supreme joy of life - the bliss of God.




Dr. Elsbeth Meuth and Freddy Zental Weaver

 "We are all full of sexual energy - it's our life force energy, also called chi in the Tao tradition and Kundalini in the tantric tradition. It's our most profound life source - part of what created us, and the key to helping us achieve our dreams, including better relationships. Unfortunately, most of us have no idea what to do with that energy. The tantric practice allows us to learn how to use our sexual creative energy as a doorway to our most intimate spiritual, emotional and physical selves."


BRAHMAN IS ETERNAL TRUTH AND KNOWLEDGE


He who knows Brahman attains the supreme goal. Brahman is the abiding reality, He is pure knowledge and He is infinity. He who knows that Brahman dwells within the lotus of the heart becomes one with Brahman and enjoys all blessing

                                                        

Peter Matthiessen, The Snow Leopard



“Today most scientists would agree with the ancient Hindus that nothing exists or is destroyed, things merely change shape or form…the cosmic radiation that is thought to come from the explosion of creation strikes the earth with equal intensity from all directions, which suggests either that the earth is at the center of the universe, as in our innocence we once supposed, or that the known universe has no center.”

I AM LOVE Jeff Foster

 

You never fall in love with another person; the other person is only a catalyst and a messenger.

You fall in love with life itself, and her staggering possibilities.

You sink more deeply into your own sweet presence, the unchanging vastness at the core of your being.

And then you credit another person.

Or you blame them when you disconnect.

But it’s all you, and all for you, and for your healing, and theirs too, and the salvation of this world.

There is no need to leave yourself to have what you are looking for.

You are the One, never a seeker of love but its source and destination and reason, and you can move and have your being in the world as that.

To know love is to know that love can never be ‘found’, for it shines equally in the looking, the finding, the losing, in the strength of the shining, even in the stillness of the night.

As Sigmund Freud realised, you cannot love what you desire, and you cannot desire what you love. For love is always closer, more intimate, at less of a distance than desire, unable to objectify or itself be objectified.

I am love, and I am what you are. That is all.”

                                     


 

JAGESSAR DAS,


"Life is a progression. We progress from childhood to adulthood, from simplicity to complexity, from ignorance to knowledge, from innocence to wisdom and from birth to death. It is the law of life. But there is also a progression from the external life to the internal, from the hustle and bustle of material life to the serenity and silence of internal life. It is in the latter that we experience the beauty of the Self and its connection with Divinity.

Those with the courage to explore the weave and structure of the Cosmos, even where it differs profoundly from their wishes and prejudices, will penetrate its deepest mysteries. 


                                                             


THIS by H.W.L. Poonja

 You simply can't deny being conscious.

You dwell in the lotus of the heart as happiness.
Be still and you will reveal your self to yourself.
Self-knowledge is ′′ that ",
Valuable enough to sacrifice everything for it,
because everything else is just a conscious deception anyway.
The self is the inner dwelling of all beings,
so love from others is the love of self, your self.
The self is the greatest love and love of all lovers.
Love is the attraction of self to self in self.
There is nothing but this love, this source of bliss.
See your own beauty
and you are that indwelling, that love,
and the beauty itself.


Thich Nhat Hanh

 "Happiness exists in many forms, but true happiness doesn’t come from the four objects of craving: sex, power, fame, and wealth. The Buddha described a dog who, when thrown a bare bone, runs after it and chews on it even though there’s no meat on the bone. He doesn’t get any nutrition from the bone, yet he hangs on to it and won’t let go. Our attitude is just like that. Cravings can never bring satisfaction, yet we keep on running after them."



Symbolic Effervescence of Goddess Kali~ By K. Nagori

 

*Kali’s aura and theme resonates with the concepts of rebirth, cycles, joy, courage, hope, cleansing and change. She is symbolically represented by flowers, dance, iron, swords, peacock feathers and honey.* *Kali, a Hindu Goddess whose name means ‘time’, She is the embodiment of natural forces that either build or destroy. She is destructive of ignorance, dispelling negativity, however, She reminds us that good really can come of bad situations. Where there is sorrow, She dances to bring joy. Where there is fear, She dances propagating courage.* *Goddess Kali is equated with the eternal night, is the transcendent power of time, and is the consort of the god Shiva. It is said that its Shiva who destroys the world, and Kali is the power or energy with which Shiva acts. Therefore, Kali is Shiva’s Shakti, without which Shiva could not act.* *Of all the forms of Devi, She is the most compassionate because She provides moksha or liberation to Her children.*

 “You are often glued shut like the little seed with a hard casing; although, if you remember, when the casing cracks the seed lets go of what it no longer needs. When this occurs, life for the seed becomes smoother, and so you too are called forth, like the seed, to sprout upward and reach into the rays of the sun and the rays of cosmic change.”


                                                       


Hindu proverb

 


Osho

 Osho


“As far as I am concerned the basic quality of a seeker of truth is to cut himself away from all belief systems, from all borrowed knowledge – in other words, to have the courage to be ignorant rather than to have borrowed knowledge. Ignorance has a beauty; it is at least yours, authentic, sincere. It has come with you. It is your blood, it is your bones, it is your marrow. "Knowledgeability is ugly, absolute rubbish. It has been poured upon you by others, and you are carrying the load of it. And the load is such that it will not give you any opportunity to enquire on your own what truth is.

Your collection of knowledge will answer immediately that this is truth. If you are filled with the Holy Bible, then the question will be answered by the Holy Bible. If you are filled with the vedas, then the question will come out of the vedas. But it will come from some source outside yourself; it will not be your discovery. And that which is not your discovery is not yours. "Truth brings freedom because it is your discovery. It makes you fully into man; otherwise you remain on the level of the animals: you are but you don’t know who you are. "The search for truth is really the search for the reality of your being.

"Once you have entered your being, you have entered into the being of the whole, because we are different on the periphery but at the center we meet – we are one. You can draw many lines from the periphery of a circle towards the center; those lines on the periphery have a certain distance from each other. But as they come closer to the center the distance goes on becoming less. And when they reach to the center the distance disappears. "At the center we are one. "At the periphery of existence we appear to be separate. "And to know the truth of your being is to know the truth of the whole. "There is just one quality, one courage: not to be afraid of being ignorant. On that point there can be no compromise, no cheap borrowed knowledge to decorate yourself with as a wise man. That’s enough! Just be pure and natural, and out of that purity, naturalness, ignorance, innocence, the quest is bound to be born.”

                                                     

What does Consciousness mean?



Consciousness is the state of being aware of something internal within the mind, or external within the physical or sensory world. It can be defined as an individual’s unique awareness (often simultaneously) of their thoughts, feelings, sensory experiences and environment. Although it can be a difficult term to define, philosophers generally agree that most people have an intuitive understanding of what the state of consciousness is.

In yoga, this is an important concept because ancient yogis believed that the universe emanated from a supreme Consciousness. Thus, Consciousness is also considered to be God.

Yogapedia explains Consciousness

Some yogic philosophers, such as Swami Kriyananda, believe that consciousness is the absolute or purest state. Matter is seen as the manifestation of vibrating energy; and that energy itself is seen as the manifestation of Consciousness. In this sense, it is said that consciousness cannot be defined because once it is, it is no longer pure.

Yogic practices, such as mindfulness and meditation, allow practitioners to explore and understand the nature of consciousness through introspection, or examination, of the mind. To better understand consciousness, the practitioner shifts their focus from the things they are aware of to the instrument of their awareness, which is Consciousness itself.

Many yogis believe that the state of individual consciousness is just part of a collective universal Consciousness, like a wave is part of an ocean. In this sense, Consciousness is what connects all beings and things.

 To imagine that some little thing-food, sex, power, fame-will make you happy is to deceive oneself. Only something as vast and deep as your real self can make you truly and lastingly happy
