Favorite NonDuality Pointers

Apr 24
“The question of being is everything. Nothing could be more important or consequential—nothing where the stakes run so high. To remain unconscious of being is to remain asleep to our
own reality and therefore asleep to Reality at large. The choice is simple: awaken to being or sleep an endless sleep.”

“Around us, life bursts with miracles—a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops..
If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere.
Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles; Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes, and forms; ears that hear a bee flying or a thunderclap; a brain that ponders a speck of dust as easily as the entire cosmos; a heart that beats in rhythm with the heartbeat of all beings.
When we are tired and feel discouraged by life’s daily struggles, we may not notice these miracles, but they are always there.”
Thích Nhất Hạnh  (via elige)

“Be quiet, don’t think, don’t make effort. To be bound takes effort, to be free takes no effort. Peace is beyond thought and effort. Do not think and do not make effort because This only obscures That, and will never reveal That. This is why keeping quiet is the key to the storehouse of love and peace. This quietness is no-mind, this no-thought is freedom. Identify yourself as this Nothingness, as this Quietness, and be careful not to make it an experience because this is mind tricking you out of it with the trap of duality; the trap of witness and witnessed. Being is Being, there is no witness and no witnessed. Experiencing it is to say “I am Free”, which is exactly the same trap as saying “I am bound.” After letting go of object, do not hold onto the subject either. Let go, be quiet.” Papaji (via ashramof1)

“Attachment to views is the greatest impediment to the spiritual path.” Thích Nhất Hạnh (via purplebuddhaproject)

(via ahippiekid)

“We are all born with being veiled in obscurity. We may recognize the transparency of being shining in the eyes of an infant, but such being is not conscious of itself. It is veiled in an absence of self-awareness. Infants live in a magical world of unconscious being, while adults live in a world of egocentric separation and denial of being. Rectifying and restoring being to its true dominion and sovereignty is what spiritual awakening makes possible.” Adyashanti

“Look Within,
Approach with all Devotion,
Stay as Heart.
Only adore yourself,
worship your Self, and seek your Self,
and the rest will be taken care of.
Avoid useless activities and pleasures.
Simply keep Quiet, this is Sahaja Bhav, the natural state.
If you want to wake up,
don’t think and do not make effort.
This is the only way.
This may appear as Wisdom with inquiry
or as Love by devotion, but both are the same.
True Wisdom is the Love of Self.
The Supreme Self, the dearest Love,
the source of joy, must be meditated on day and night
whatever you are doing, if you want Freedom Now.
Disregard everything else, See only That,
and all will be added to you.
Only contemplate Existence.
This contemplation is to just Be.
Go straight to the Light.”

You live in contraction, thinking of yourself as an individual. Where do the terms “me” and “mine” find meaning? When you really look into yourself you cannot say the body belongs to you…

You are what you absorb. You eat vegetables, fish.. and these are dependent on light, the sun, warmth. The light is related to the moon… and the stars are all related. There is nothing personal in us. The body is in organic relationship with the Universe.

You must understand and co-operate with the body. It is ignorance of the mechanism that creates conflict. Inquiry can only be carried out in daily life. Your mind and body are reflected in your behavior from morning until night. Relationships are the mirror in which your inner being gets reflected.

Be aware that you are a link in the chain of being. When you really feel this, the emphasis is no longer on being individual, and spontaneously you come out of your restriction.

All phenomena, all existence, is an expression within globality, and the varieties of expression only have meaning and relationship in light of the whole.

To be related is to be related within the whole. Since there is no meeting of fractions, in the whole there is no other…
