I was tears, I became laughter.
All because of Love,
my temporal life,
from then on changed to eternal.
Let the mind rest at peace.
The ten thousand things rise and fall
while the Self watches their return.
They grow and flourish and then return to the source.
Returning to the source is stillness,
which is the way of nature.
and know that everything in this life has a purpose.
There is no need to go to India
or anywhere else to find peace.
You will find that deep place of silence
right in your room,
even your bathtub.
the soul finds the path in a clearer light,
and what is elusive and deceptive
resolves itself into crystal clearness.
Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards;
at the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement.
And do not all it fixity,
Where past and future are gathered.
Neither movement from nor towards,
Neither ascent nor decline.
Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance,
and there is only the dance.
in the mind's immobility and thought-free stillness.
When mind is still,
then truth gets her chance to be heard
in the purity of the silence.
there lies a silence that is better.
Silence is deep as Eternity;
speech is shallow as Time.
Getting a good plan off the ground is getting complicated due to a number of hard to control issues.
To get what you need,
it is necessary to simplify and prioritize
all the options at your disposal.
There is a foolproof way to successfully
pull yourself out of the stress zone.
Stop the chatter in your brain.
Listen to your breath for short spells.
And you will find all the answers you seek plus more
from an unconscious source.
If you can’t change yourself, after all
the efforts, change the light
by which you read your story.
a lamp, a candle, a vine of shining
holiday lights – and feel yourself
become hugged by the fabric of shadows.
You see these objects around become related
by the pregnant emptiness that holds them,
of being just this. Then, further still, try
moonlight, or no light, until, at last,
this open, sourceless incandescence
which you are
no matter who you think you are
will follow you from the inside
wherever you may go, however
you may change, or not.
