-Anon I mus (Spiritually Anonymous)

 “True spirituality does not require a life-long dependency on an external middleman or mediator (priest, rabbi, guru, shaman, book, technique, object, religion, etc.) that stands in between you and the Divine. An authentic teacher’s role is to move out of the way and hold up a sacred mirror and remind you that… ‘you are already that which you seek’.”   


 "That state which is beyond speech and thoughts is silence.

Words arise from silence and thoughts disappear into silence."


 Now, here, for the first time you do not have to do anything. Simply sit quiet for one moment in time. That is all that is required to realize existence, consciousness and bliss.


 Meditation is something that you can keep repressed for as long as you want, but you cannot kill it.

The seed will remain there, and one day you will have to stop repressing it.

One day that same seed that you have been repressing for lives will become your savior.


Enlightenment is here, now and forever. If you have no concepts, you know this directly and indubitably. But if you are attached to any concepts, you are not aware of this. In this ignorant state you think that you have to attain enlightenment because you are not aware that you are already free, that you have always been free.

You therefore set up a goal for yourself, call it enlightenment, and then make great efforts to attain it.

If you seek enlightenment in this way, you must have some idea of what it will be like. The mind is very clever and very tricky. If you put an enormous amount of energy into attaining and experiencing this goal, the mind will create this desired experience for you and allow you to enjoy it. But it will not be the experience of enlightenment; it will be the experience of your concept of what enlightenment is. When this happens, you will think that you are enlightened because your experience will correspond exactly to your preconceived idea of what enlightenment is. These mind-induced experiences are not the permanent, natural state. They are temporary mental experiences that will come and go in time.

The Diamond Sutra


Bowl of Saki, May 31, by Hazrat Inayat Khan


All the disharmony of the world caused by religious differences is the result of man's failure to understand that religion is One, truth is One, God is One; how can there be two religions? 

Fyodor Dostoyevsky


“My God, a moment of bliss. Why, isn’t that enough for a whole lifetime?”


“The Secret to saneful living is in the Key between these two worlds. In order to serve the higher ideal, one must revert to serving the Spark within all the multiplicities herein conceivable in the apparent world. The spark in itself is not contained for it encompasses both realities, that of the inner, and the apparent”



When you realize that eternity is right here now, that it is within your possibility to experience the eternity of your own truth and being, then you grasp the following: That which you are was never born and will never die...


Om (also spelled Aum) is a Hindu Sacred Sound that is considered the greatest of all Mantras. The syllable Om is composed of the three sounds a-u-m (in Sanskrit, the vowels a and u combine to become o) and the symbol’s threefold Nature is central to its meaning. It represent several important triads:

The Three Worlds - Earth, Atmosphere, and Heaven

The Three Major Hindu Gods - Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva

The Three Sacred Vedic Scriptures - Rg, Yajur, and Sama

Om Mystically embodies the Essence of the entire Universe. This meaning is further deepened by the Indian Philosophical belief that God first created Sound and the Universe arose from it. As the most Sacred Sound, Om is the Root of the Universe and everything that exists and it continues to hold everything together.


Erwin Schrodinger


In a famous essay on determinism and free will, he expressed very clearly the sense that consciousness is a unity, arguing that this "insight is not new.From the early great Upanishads the recognition Atman = Brahman (the personal self equals the omnipresent, all-comprehending eternal self) was in Indian thought considered, far from being blasphemous, to represent, the quintessence of deepest insight into the happenings of the world. The striving of all the scholars of Vedanta was, after having learnt to pronounce with their lips, really to assimilate in their minds this grandest of all thoughts."

Schrodinger wrote:

“Vedanta teaches that consciousness is singular, all happenings are played out in one universal consciousness and there is no multiplicity of selves.”

“the stages of human development are to strive for Possession (Artha), Knowledge (Dharma), Ability (Kama), Being (Moksha)”

“Nirvana is a state of pure blissful knowledge.. It has nothing to do with individual. The ego or its separation is an illusion. The goal of man is to preserve his Karma and to develop it further – when man dies his karma lives and creates for itself another carrier.”

Hermann Hesse


Great masses of people these days live out their lives in a dull and loveless stupor. Sensitive persons find our inartistic manner of existence oppressive and painful, and they withdraw from sight… I believe what we lack is joy. The ardor that a heightened awareness imparts to life, the conception of life as a happy thing, as a festival… But the high value put upon every minute of time, the idea of hurry-hurry as the most important objective of living, is unquestionably the most dangerous enemy of joy.


Lao Tzu has said: “Seek and you will miss. Do not seek and you will find.” By Osho


Now, this is one of the most significant statements ever made. In the very seeking you have missed. If you seek, you have taken a wrong standpoint. In the very seeking you have accepted one thing: that you don’t have that which you seek. That is where the fault lies. You have it: you already have it. The moment you start searching for something, you will become neurotic, because you cannot find it - there is nowhere to look, because it is already there.

It is like a man who is searching for his glasses. His glasses are already on his eyes, on his nose, and he is looking through those glasses and searching! Now he will never find them, unless he remembers that all search is futile unless he remembers: ‘if I can see, then my glasses must be already there in front of my eyes, otherwise how could I see?’

In our very seeing, the truth is hidden. In our very search, the treasure is hidden. The seeker is the sought; that is the problem, the only problem that human beings have been trying to solve and about which they have been growing more and more puzzled. The sanest attitude is that of Lao Tzu. He says:

Stop searching and be. Just be, and you will be surprised: you will find it!



Karolina Goswami

Mogi das

“Most of the almost eight billion souls on earth desire the same thing, sustenance and covering, peace and love, while few find. Why? Restraint and observance of the wisdom (dharma) of the Laws of Creation has not been taught, respected nor practiced. Only the karma of discord can follow. Only as this spiritual path of these Divine Laws are brought into alignment with our ‘awareness’ of actions can our minds be cleared of the physicality of ego so as to being able become 'aware’ of our own higher Self, where correction of thought and bliss are found.” 


Rudolph Steiner

“The sun with loving light makes bright for me each day, the soul with spirit power gives strength unto my limbs. In sunlight shining clear I revere, Oh God, the strength of humankind, which thou has planted in my soul, that I may with all my might, may love to work and learn. From thee stream light and strength to thee rise love and thanks.”

Kamand Kojouri


“One sip of this wine
and you will go mad with drunkenness.
You will drop your masks
and tear your clothes, destroying
everything that separates you from the Lover.
Once you taste the fruit of this vine,
you will be kicked out of the city of yourself.
You will forget the world. You will forget yourself.
I tell you:
you will become a madman
who wanders the streets looking for the Lover
once you drink this Wine of Love.”



 Remember one thing continuously: that you have to be more and more silent, and more and more centered within.

Whenever you have time, close your eyes and move within.

Don't be busy when there is no business, don't remain occupied unnecessarily.

Daphne Rose Kingma

“The potential for loss of soul--to one degree or another--is the affliction of a society that as a collective has lost its sense of the holy, of a culture that values everything else above the spiritual. We live in such a spiritually impoverished culture--and in such a time. Loss of soul, to one degree or another, is a constant teasing possibility. We are invited at every corner to hedge on the truth, indulge outselves, act as if our words and actions have no ultimate consequence, make an absolute of the material world, and treat the spiritual world as if it were some kind of frothy, angelic fantasy. In such a world the soul struggles for survival; in such a world a man can lose his own soul and have the whole culture support him, and in such a world, conversely, the light of a single, great soul that lives in integrity can truly illumine the world.”


Sri Ramana Maharshi

 Effortless and choiceless awareness is our Real State.

If we can attain it or be in It, it is alright. But one cannot reach It without effort, the effort of deliberate meditation.

All the agelong vasanas (latent tendencies) carry the mind outwards and turn it to external objects. All such thoughts have to be given up and the mind turned inward.

Max Planck

 "Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are part of the mystery that we are trying to solve."

Hsin Hsin Ming

“When love and hate are both absent, everything becomes clear and undisguised. Make the slightest distinction, however, and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart. If you wish to see the truth, then hold no opinions for or against anything. To set up what you like against what you dislike is the disease of the mind.”


Aberjhani, The River of Winged Dreams

“The death of a dream can in fact serve as the vehicle that endows it with new form, with reinvigorated substance, a fresh flow of ideas, and splendidly revitalized color. In short, the power of a certain kind of dream is such that death need not indicate finality at all but rather signify a metaphysical and metaphorical leap forward.”



It’s all a creation of mind, an endless movie, and sometimes a terrible dream. The great irony is to think you have some power to actually change the dream; that is just a figment in the dream appearing to do things. Be aware of the dream.  Look at what looks at the dream. Instead of being submerged, ease up and relax. 



Sri Ramana

 The sense of 'I' pertains to the person, the body and brain. When a man knows his true Self for the first time something else arises from the depths of his being and takes possession of him. That something is behind the mind; it is infinite, divine, eternal. Some people call it the Kingdom of Heaven, others call it the soul and others again Nirvana, and Hindus call it Liberation; you may give it what name you wish. When this happens a man has not really lost himself; rather he has found himself.

Unless and until a man embarks on this quest of the true Self, doubt and uncertainty will follow his footsteps through life. The greatest kings and statesmen try to rule others when in their heart of hearts they know that they cannot rule themselves. Yet the greatest power is at the command of the man who has penetrated to his inmost depth.



Hxni, Journals of a Psychonaut in Inner Space


“The human organism is the Universe celebrating it’s glory. We are the Universe. There is no where to look but within.”

Baba Faqir Chand

I am a bubble of Super-most consciousness. That is what my realization is. This is what I have gained. Now what I feel is that there is One, Infinite, Super-most Element. From IT, when it moves, Sound and Light come out and from that Light and Sound this creation takes place. Cosmic rays and many other types of rays come out of this Light and Sound and all this gross matter is made. So it is the Will of that Supreme Power. Everything is oozing out of IT and is merging back in IT.

Anne D. LeClaire

“Every soul innately yearns for stillness, for a space, a garden where we can till, sow, reap, and rest, and by doing so come to a deeper sense of self and our place in the universe. Silence is not an absence but a presence. Not an emptiness but repletion A filling up.”


As wisdom dawns ~ Mipham Rinpoche

 As the wisdom of recognizing your own true nature dawns, it clears away the blinding darkness of confusion, and, just as you can see clearly the inside of your home once the sun has risen, you gain confident certainty in the true nature of your mind.

Kahlil Gibran


Journey Of Self-Discovery Unknown


"Everyone has their own path. Walk yours with integrity and wish all others peace on their journey. When your paths merge, rejoice for their presence in your life. When the paths are separated, return to the wholeness of yourself. Give thanks for the footprints left on your soul, and embrace the time to journey on your own."

Lao Tzu


India Ame'ye

 The connection we desire with other people is very human, natural, and real, but the ultimate connection we seek is a deeply loving, euphoric relationship with ourselves (our cells)to know who and what we really are, to know our true purpose here on Earth, and what our highest potential is.
