EXCEPT BY BEING LIVED DIFFERENTLY THIS DAY..
BE THIS ONE MOMENT OF ETERNAL CORE TRUTH
THAT NEVER CHANGES
(above Whisper Arises before reading the below Sunrise quotes-..
...they were picked/saved 2 days ago, but not consciously remembered this morning)
The forms may change, yet the essence remains the same.
but do not be disheartened,
the source they come from is eternal, growing,
branching out, giving new life and new joy.
The source is within you,
and this whole world is springing up from it.
– Jalal al-Din Rumi
to be without fear,
to be without desire;
you seek nothing.
The Essential is not something
that is hidden behind the appearance
- these are beautiful Indian stories -
the Essential is what is Here.
There is nothing else than that.
There is nothing to understand,
there is simply nothing.
as lightness that apparently arises
when the situations suit your ideology
and which apparently disappears
when the situations do not correspond
to your plan for humanity...
teaches from the Tantric Tradition
Everything exists in this world through silence.
True silence really means going deep within yourself
to that place where nothing is happening,
where you transcend time and space.
You go into a brand new dimension of nothingness.
That's your real home.
no one trying to achieve anything.
Just being, pure being...
[What Beret calls The Essential]
of the Advaita tradition
what does it profit me?"
as the light of
in the black and groundless
sorrow and joy
mingle in one cup.
the stars in her darkness
has become your breath.
and be the mother
of your own heart.
Alfred K. LaMotte
hold fast to the one,
and so learn to be whole?
Can you center your energy,
be soft, tender,
and so learn to be a baby?
so it reflects without blurring?
Can you love people and run things,
and do so by not doing?
can you be like a bird with her nestlings?
Piercing bright through the cosmos,
can you know by not knowing?
to bear and not to own,
to act and not lay claim,
to lead and not to rule:
this is mysterious power.
~ Lao Tzu
