there is not a single word in existence
that can convey this communication.
with a panorama of valley and hills before me,
I turned my gaze inward,
and what I saw, stopped me in my tracks.
Instead of the usual unlocalized centre of myself,
there was nothing there,
it was empty,
and at the moment of seeing this
there was a flood of quiet joy and I knew,
finally I knew what was missing-
it was my "self".
is so completely aligned with the still-point
that it can no longer be moved,
even in its first movements,
from this center.
nor moved by the winds of change,
and at this point the self
has obviously outworn its function;
it is no longer needed or useful,
and life can go on without it.

The seeds of His love blossom in every heart.
The sounds of His flute fill every celebration.
Everyone thinks that he sings and dances
He is the only one singing,
He is the only one dancing.

or the blows of an axe.
If the Sun did not run across the sky
the world would not see
the colors of morning.
If water did not rise from the sea

and become a pearl.
But you have no need to go anywhere--
journey within yourself.
Enter a mine of rubies
and bathe in the splendor of your own light.
Journey from self to Self
and find the mine of gold.
Leave behind what is sour and bitter--
move toward what is sweet.

This is the miracle--
Every tree becomes beautiful
when touched by sunlight;
EXPLODING CREATION ENERGY
when touched by the Sun of Tabriz.
More from Bernadette Roberts
is that it forever hangs on to some form of self
and never lets it go.
It perpetuates the notion that self gets better and better,
more and more divine, when in truth,
the divine increases in proportion
as the self decreases or falls away.
The notion of a divinized self only
increases or inflates the self;
for those who buy into this notion,
the journey may well end
in total disillusionment.

What Is Self?: A Study of the Spiritual Journey in Terms of Consciousness
I saw the no-self experience
as the true nature of Christ’s death;
the movement beyond even his oneness with the divine,
the movement from God to Godhead.
Though not articulated in contemplative literature,
Christ dramatized this experience on the cross
for all ages to see and ponder.
Where Buddha described the experience,
Christ manifested it without words;
yet they both make the same statement
and reveal the same truth – that ultimately,
eternal life is beyond self or consciousness.
After one has seen it manifested or heard it said,
the only thing left is to experience it.”
