Yumi Sakugawa


“Most of the time the universe speaks to us very quietly in pockets of silence, in coincidences, in nature, in forgotten memories, in the shape of clouds, in moments of solitude, in small tugs at our hearts.”



Anon I mus (Spiritually Anonymous)


“Love is the ultimate reality; everything else are perceptual illusions.  Love knows no fear, limitation or feelings of separateness.  Every thought that is perfumed by the fragrance of love has no other choice but to reflect the purity of love.”   

Paramahansa Yogananda.

  "Our real self, the soul, is immortal. We may sleep for a little while in that change called death, but we can never be destroyed. We exist, and that existence is eternal. The wave comes to the shore, and then goes back to the sea; it is not lost. It becomes one with the ocean, or returns again in the form of another wave. This body has come, and it will vanish; but the soul essence within it will never cease to exist. Nothing can terminate that eternal consciousness."


My Beloved Radhasoami [Lord of the Soul] is the Ocean of Love.

My Beloved Radhasoami is the all-wise Being.
Imbued with love, I sing the praises of Radhasoami.
I remember the Name RADHASOAMI
every moment.

Ascend within in the late hours of the night and
gaze. You will find the current of nectar
dripping on your heart every moment. You
will experience immense bliss and joy.
You will witness the refulgence of Jyoti [Light] within
you and hear the bell and the conch giving out
their melodious Sounds.
The mind surges forth within in sheer joy and
delight. Surat [the Soul] ascends to higher regions while
drinking nectar.
Maya and Kal will now give up their pranks and
tricks. Love will increase in your heart every
– Huzur Maharaj Rai Saligram, Prem Bani Radhaswami, Volume II

 True meditation is the process of freeing oneself from internal chatter of the mind by observing it in action.  We must learn to be still and sit inside the space of no-mind (pure emptiness), where only presence remains. 

   In each moment, we are all given a choice to be either fully centered in our changeless, unperturbed essence or continue to be in mental states of unrest (identifying with ceaseless activities of the mind).

 “Life is a cosmic play of love and light that orchestrates the synchronization of events in order to assist us in waking up from the collective dream of separateness back into universal oneness. See and feel the sacred dance of the divine consciousness that is all around you.” 


Mahatma Gandhi

 “When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always.”






 The hand with a wheel on the palm symbolizes Ahimsa in Jainism. The word in the middle is "ahiṃsā" (non-injury). The wheel represents the dharmachakra, which stands for the resolve to halt the saṃsāra through the relentless pursuit of Ahimsa.


Robert Adams

 'Do not allow the world to run your life. Do not allow people to run your life. Be yourself. Know yourself. Realize that you are Brahman, the pure awareness. There is nothing that can interfere with you. You are pure consciousness. This is your real state. This is what you are, whether you know it or not, whether you care or not. You can walk out of this door and go about your business like you always have, but your nature is pure consciousness and one day you will have to awaken. So why not begin now. Why wait?

Do not let the world fool you. I reiterate again and again. The world appears very powerful. It makes you want things. It tells you to pursue this, to pursue that, to become successful. All this is an illusion.
You are already successful. All your needs will be met if you have faith and trust the powers that be that are within you and without you. You will always be taken care of. There is no doubt about this. You have absolutely nothing to worry about. You have absolutely nothing to fear. Everything is right just the way it is. There never were any mistakes. Leave the world alone, mentally. Physically, you will gravitate to where you're supposed to be and go through the experiences that you're supposed to go through. Yet do not react to them, leave everything alone.

Swami Vivekanada

 "Therefore, to gain this infinite universal individuality, this miserable little prison - individuality must go. Then alone can death cease when I am one with life, then alone can misery cease when I am one with happiness itself, then alone can all errors cease when I am one with knowledge itself; and this is the necessary scientific conclusion- Science has proved to me that physical individuality is a delusion, that really my body is one little continuously changing body in an unbroken ocean of matter, and Advaita (unity) is the necessary conclusion with my other counterpart, Soul."




The heavenly firmament, tinted with cerulean hue—one limitless vault of refulgence and indescribable splendour—the resplendent orb of the rising sun, the ethereal gentleness of the beaming moon, with her coruscating companions, the planets and the stars, the verdant earth, the swift-flowing river, murmuring in sweet cadence of eternity and bliss, the roaring sea of life and death, and the glorious fire of Empyrean...

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.

There is but one Infinite Being in the universe


There is but one Infinite Being in the universe, and that Being appears as you and as I; but this appearance of divisions is after all a delusion. He has not been divided, but only appears to be divided. This apparent division is caused by looking at Him through the network of time, space, and causation. When I look at God through the network of time, space, and causation, I see Him as the material world. When I look at Him from a little higher plane, yet through the same network, I see Him as an animal, a little higher as a man, a little higher as a god, but yet He is the One Infinite Being of the universe, and that Being we are. I am That, and you are That. Not parts of It, but the whole of It. "It is the Eternal Knower standing behind the whole phenomena; He Himself is the phenomena." He is both the subject and the object, He is the "I" and the "You". How is this? "How to know the Knower? The Knower cannot know Himself; I see everything but cannot see myself. The Self, the Knower, the Lord of all, the Real Being, is the cause of all the vision that is in the universe, but it is impossible for Him to see Himself or know Himself, excepting through reflection. You cannot see your own face except in a mirror, and so the Self cannot see Its own nature until It is reflected, and this whole universe therefore is the Self trying to realized Itself. This reflection is thrown back first from the protoplasm, then from plants and animals, and so on and on from better and better reflectors, until the best reflector, the perfect man, is reached — just as a man who, wanting to see his face, looks first in a little pool of muddy water, and sees just an outline; then he comes to clear water, and sees a better image; then to a piece of shining metal, and sees a still better image; and at last to a looking-glass, and sees himself reflected as he is. Therefore the perfect man is the highest reflection of that Being who is both subject and object. You now find why man instinctively worships everything, and how perfect men are instinctively worshipped as God in every country. You may talk as you like, but it is they who are bound to be worshipped. That is why men worship Incarnations, such as Christ or Buddha. They are the most perfect manifestations of the eternal Self. They are much higher than all the conceptions of God that you or I can make. A perfect man is much higher than such conceptions. In him the circle becomes complete; the subject and the object become one. In him all delusions go away and in their place comes the realisation that he has always been that perfect Being. How came this bondage then? How was it possible for this perfect Being to degenerate into the imperfect? How was it possible that the free became bound? The Advaitist says, he was never bound, but was always free. Various clouds of various colours come before the sky. They remain there a minute and then pass away. It is the same eternal blue sky stretching there for ever. The sky never changes: it is the cloud that is changing. So you are always perfect, eternally perfect. Nothing ever changes your nature, or ever will. All these ideas that I am imperfect, I am a man, or a woman, or a sinner, or I am the mind, I have thought, I will think — all are hallucinations; you never think, you never had a body; you never were imperfect. You are the blessed Lord of this universe, the one Almighty ruler of everything that is and ever will be, the one mighty ruler of these suns and stars and moons and earths and planets and all the little bits of our universe. It is through you that the sun shines and the stars shed their lustre, and the earth becomes beautiful. It is through your blessedness that they all love and are attracted to each other. You are in all, and you are all. Whom to avoid, and whom to take? You are the all in all. When this knowledge comes delusion immediately vanishes.

Alejandro Jodorowsky

 Awakening is not a thing. It is not a goal, not a concept. It is not something to be attained. It is a metamorphosis. If the caterpillar thinks about the butterfly it is to become, saying ‘And then I shall have wings and antennae,’ there will never be a butterfly. The caterpillar must accept its own disappearance in its transformation. When the marvelous butterfly takes wing, nothing of the caterpillar remains.



 I don't give any exercise or practice because all practice is in time and is in mind. What I recommend is to simply stay quiet, don't make effort, don't think. This is all you have to do now. Do this now.

Don Miguel Ruiz

 Awakenings happen to the living. A man can wake up, see the prison he has made, and decide to choose freedom.


Mahāpadmāṭavī-saṃsthā महापद्माटवी-संस्था (59)


Devi dwells in a great forest full of lotus flowers. This nāma talks about the crown cakra or sahasrāra, situated above the six cakra-s of our body.


Buddha Metta Sutta

 Just as with her own life A mother shields from hurt Her own son, her only child, Let all-embracing thoughts For all beings be yours. 


Stephen Mitchell The Enlightened Mind

 The Net of Indra is a profound and subtle metaphor for the structure of reality. Imagine a vast net; at each crossing point there is a jewel; each jewel is perfectly clear and reflects all the other jewels in the net, the way two mirrors placed opposite each other will reflect an image ad infinitum. The jewel in this metaphor stands for an individual being, or an individual consciousness, or a cell or an atom. Every jewel is intimately connected with all other jewels in the universe, and a change in one jewel means a change, however slight, in every other jewel.


Thich Nhat Hanh

 “The moment of awakening may be marked by an outbursts of laughter, but this is not the laughter of someone who has won the lottery or some kind of victory. It is the laughter of one who, after searching for something for a long time, suddenly finds it in the pocket of his coat.”


Khalil Gibran


“It was but yesterday I thought myself a fragment quivering without rhythm in the sphere of life. Now I know that I am the sphere, and all life in rhythmic fragments moves within me.”



Adyashanti, from “The Philosophy of Enlightenment”

 “The authentic spiritual impulse is a desire for truth, God, peace. It’s a desire to experience the ultimate reality. It also includes the welfare of all beings. Otherwise, it’s inherently a narcissistic pursuit, a complicated form of self-obsession—the ego wanting to have the best experience it can have.”

Wu Hsin - Being Conscious Presence

 If you owned a priceless jade which

You have misplaced in a room filled with clutter.
You’d remove all the clutter
In order to find it.
The real essence has been

Misplaced in a room filled with thought.
Remove the clutter and
What has been obscured will be found.


Anais Nin

 Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.


H. P. Blavatsky

 People keep repeating that the main things are love and compassion. Certainly love and compassion are the main things, but it takes knowledge to make love and compassion fruitful. It takes just a second to say ‘love’. But to acquire knowledge for the well-being and blessing of humanity requires an eternity.

Albert Einstein


“I do not need any promise of eternity to be happy. My eternity is now. I have only one interest: to fulfill my purpose here where I am. This purpose is not given me by my parents or my surroundings. It is induced by some unknown factors. These factors make me a part of eternity.”


Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

 “People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
