our world

The Divine creates from his will
Creation is but love manifest

Why do we scorn the very essence of life
And then spend our lives searching for that which we denied

Let us awaken to our purpose
To know ourselves as the One

We have taken this beautiful human form and made it ugly
We have forsaken our brothers and sisters
To pursue our selfish desires only to create pain for all

Let us find the beauty in each other and share ourselves
And rejoice in the knowing that we have been given life
To experience, to love, to be and to create

Let us sing and dance together
To the love song that emanates from the depths of the Self

Do not deny this feeling for another moment
Life is precious and it is calling us to rise

Let us awaken!

i searched many lives, paths and clues
i have found the doorway in a place i least expected
not in the scriptures
not in the mystery schools
not in the stars or in science

through your grace i find myself in my tears
a heart opening to the sun like a lotus flower

amma, amma, amma
you are a living presence
the potential of man is found in the love of a mother

grant me the courage to blossom
and follow you to the Self
to the inner sky that contains all the heavens

your light reveals my greed, lust and selfishness
there is nothing i could have done to earn this flowering
i am purified only through your divine grace

what now?

Posted by Picasa

the current moment determines the next
(at least on the linear plane...)

so why worry about tomorrow?
act now instead and let tomorrow take care of itself

then what now?
dont worry about that either
flow, let existence act through you
be your part of the cosmic whole

you'll know what to do
the future will pull you to itself of its own accord
allow the next moment to reveal itself

yet you are making it all happen
but just who are YOU?

look inside, meditate on it
the you that you think you are is but a thought
behind the clouds you are found
as a vessel of the totality

this is the only thing up to you
will you play your part as your individuated egoic self
or as the universal Self

know yourself to know the Truth
this is the cosmic puzzle
that once answered cannot be spoken

Seeing the World

Posted by Picasa

Existence can only be seen once the Ego is dissolved into the ocean of totality. Until then how one views the world tells you about the mind of the person perceiving, not of the world as it is.

Yet we refuse to see the total and adopt a limited personal perspective.. and then follow blindly or fight the views of others, whom we uncessarily extoll or condemn, foresaking our destiny to perceive directly.

Become the Seer, drop the perceiver and bear witness to all that is. Just watch with no-mind.... this starts as a glimpse in meditation and becomes permanent in the state of enlightenment or full realization....

This flowering of consciousness is the ultimate benediction and if you begin to recognize it in yourself flow into it..... it is the final destination.. but to become the Butterfly you shall have to die as the Catterpillar.

so much just beneath the surface
pains and sorrows of this life and those past
let your suffering reveal itself
from this emerges courage
courage to know yourself
courage to be yourself

why create problems and then try finding solutions - playing a game of hide-and-seek with ourselves.... there are no problems - they get created only in the mind, universally they dont exist - dont let the problem arise, move into silence and live in the now.

"Real love is to transform lonliness into alone-ness. To help the other - if you love the other person, you help him to be alone. You don't fill him or her. Yo don't try to complete the other in some way by your presence. You help the other to be alone - to be so full out of her or his own being that you will not be a need."

"Each relationship is only an experimentation to prepare you for the ultimate relationship, for the ultimate love affair with existence."

River of Life

life Posted by Hello

The more I see the more I realize that all there is to do is ride the current of life. Even when we are not acting from our mind created desires, we are not static. Even if you did nothing, life will move you along the universal current… being one with nature means surrendering to the grand movement of things - giving up our little desires for the whole…

The key is distinguishing those movements that come from the mind from those that happen naturally. For instance breathing happens on its own accord – if you interfere with it you will change the natural pattern and put your body in conflict.

It takes some understanding, insight and deep awareness to grasp the fact that once can give up acting from the mind and still be acting, doing, creating. The difference is that the movement comes from a different place. The flow of life, like a river, is already carrying you… you are only the vehicle, the instrument. Then yours is to experience the movement that is happening through you… being one with it – just as the dancer and the dance can not be separated.

We have become addicted to using the mind excessively and have have been living upside down peddling the bicycle of life with our arms and steering with our legs!

those who dont know have many answers
those who have known go on avoiding saying that which can not be spoken


reality Posted by Hello

people who have known reality not as a knowledge but as an experience have tremendously emphasized one point

that your are already what you can ever be
your essential reality has already been given to you
it is not going to happen in the future
it is possible you may not realize it in the present
that does not mean it is not present
it simply means your eyes are closed
your can stand with closed eyes before a sunrise
and you will remain in darkness
that does not deny the exist of the sun
it simply shows your stupidity
just open your eyes
and in fact all that you need is already given to you


Choiceless awareness simply means

whatever happens to you
is perfectly the right thing that should have happened
you don’t have any judgment about it
it doesn’t mean you will stop doing things
you will continue doing things
but your doing things will be
more like a man flowing the current of the river
not swimming, not swimming against the current
the effort comes when you are against the current
existence want you to move north
and you want to move towards the south
there comes the struggle
there comes your effort
there comes your separate existence as an ego

but if you are simply flowing with the river
wherever it is going
you don’t have a goal
because a man with a goal cannot be choiceless
you don’t have a destination
because a man with a destination cannot relax
and can not be choiceless
he has as already chosen

Dependence,, Independence, Interdependence

relating Posted by Hello

"Love can have three dimensions. One is that of dependence; that's what happens to the majority of people. The husband is dependent on the wife, the wife is dependent on the husband; they exploit each other, they dominate each other, they possess each other, the reduce each otherto a commoditity. In ninety-nine percent of cases, that's what is happening inthe world. That's why love, which can open the gates of paradise, opens only the gates of hell.

The second possibility is love between two independent persons. That too happens once in a while. But that too brings misery, because there is no conflict. No adjustment is possible; both are so independent and nobody is ready to compromise, to adjust with the other.

Poets, artists, thinkers, scientists, those who live in a kind of independence, at least in their minds, are impossible people to live with; they are eccentric people to live with. They give freedom to the other, but their freedom looks more like indifference than like freedom, looks more as if they don't care, as if it doesn't matter to them. They leave each other to their own spaces. Relationship seems only to be superficial; they are afrad to go deeper into each other because they are more attached to their freedom than to love, and they don't want to compromise.

And the the third possibility is one of interdependence. That happens very rarely, but whenever it happens a part of paradise falls on the earth. Two persons, neither idependent nor dependent but in a tremendous synchronicity, as if breathiing for each other, one soul in two bodies - whenver that happens, love has happened. Call only this love. The other two are not really love, they are jst arrangements - social, psychological, biological, but arrangements. The third is something spiritual."

Maturity, Osho

"Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No Hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for Today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too.
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace.

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one.

Imagine no possessions,
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood/sisterhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as ONE."

I liked a metaphor i recently read about maya (illusion) - the world is taken as a blank screen and our mind (the projector) is pouring images onto it. We are unable to see truth as it really is, we only see that which our mind creates and projects. meditation is merely the method to stop the projector so the world can be seen as it is... we have rarely, if ever, looked upon reality without the projection of the mind.

More on Desire, Choice, Mind & Ego

Desire means rejection of something.
Rejection comes from the mind through the mechanism of choice.
Ego exists through rejection; when you say No ego is strengthened.

Desirelessnss means acceptance.
be choiceless and accept what is..... move with it

Tao on Choice

Results arise when you desire; consequence is part of the inner law of existence. That inner law is Tao. Consequence has nothing to do with you or your waiting. It happens on its own accord. Desire comes from the mind... How to drop desire. drop the mind? - The mind lives though choice. If you dont choose the mind drops...

Life comes as it comes - it floats. Dont make an effort to reach anywhere. Dont move towards a goal; enjoy the moment in its totality and dont be bothered by the future or the past. This is what Lao Tzu calls wu wei- the sage manages affairs without action - move but remain unmoving inside...

"Sitting silently, doing nothing, the spring comes and the grass grows by itself. This sitting silently is not avoiding life. Sitting silently is searching for life, the very source of life. And the moment you have found the source, everything grows by itself, just like when spring comes, the grass grows by itself."

Meister Eckhart 1260-1328 Posted by Hello

"What could be sweeter than to have a friend with whom, as with yourself, you can discuss all that is in your heart?"


Eckhart Tolle Posted by Hello

What is conventionally called "love" is an ego strategy to avoid surrender. You are looking to someone to give you that which can only come to you in the state of surrender. The ego uses that person as a substitute to avoid having to surrender. The Spanish language is the most honest in this respect. It uses the same verb, te quiero, for "I love you" and "I want you." To the ego, loving and wanting are the same, whereas true love has no wanting in it, no desire to possess or for your partner to change. The ego singles someone out and makes them special. It uses that person to cover up the constant underlying feeling of discontent, of "not enough," of anger and hate, which are closely related. These are facets of an underlying deep seated feeling in human beings that is inseparable from the egoic state.

When the ego singles something out and says "I love" this or that, it’s an unconscious attempt to cover up or remove the deep-seated feelings that always accompany the ego: the discontent, the unhappiness, the sense of insufficiency that is so familiar. For a little while, the illusion actually works. Then inevitably, at some point, the person you singled out, or made special in your eyes, fails to function as a cover up for your pain, hate, discontent or unhappiness which all have their origin in that sense of insufficiency and incompleteness. Then, out comes the feeling that was covered up, and it gets projected onto the person that had been singled out and made special – who you thought would ultimately "save you." Suddenly love turns to hate. The ego doesn’t realize that the hatred is a projection of the universal pain that you feel inside. The ego believes that this person is causing the pain. It doesn’t realize that the pain is the universal feeling of not being connected with the deeper level of your being - not being at one with yourself.

The object of love is interchangeable, as interchangeable as the object of egoic wanting. Some people go through many relationships. They fall in love and out of love many times. They love a person for a while until it doesn’t work anymore, because no person can permanently cover up that pain.

Only surrender can give you what you were looking for in the object of your love. The ego says surrender is not necessary because I love this person. It’s an unconscious process of course. The moment you accept completely what is, something inside you emerges that had been covered up by egoic wanting. It is an innate, indwelling peace, stillness, aliveness. It is the unconditioned, who you are in your essence. It is what you had been looking for in the love object. It is yourself. When that happens, a completely different kind of love is present which is not subject to love / hate. It doesn’t single out one thing or person as special. It’s absurd to even use the same word for it. Now it can happen that even in a normal love / hate relationship, occasionally, you enter the state of surrender. Temporarily, briefly, it happens: you experience a deeper universal love and a complete acceptance that can sometimes shine through, even in an otherwise egoic relationship. If surrender is not sustained, however, it gets covered up again with the old egoic patterns. So, I’m not saying that the deeper, true love cannot be present occasionally, even in a normal love / hate relationship. But it is rare and usually short-lived.

Whenever you accept what is, something deeper emerges then what is. So, you can be trapped in the most painful dilemma, external or internal, the most painful feelings or situation, and the moment you accept what is, you go beyond it, you transcend it. Even if you feel hatred, the moment you accept that this is what you feel, you transcend it. It may still be there, but suddenly you are at a deeper place where it doesn’t matter that much anymore.
The entire phenomenal universe exists because of the tension between the opposites. Hot and cold, growth and decay, gain and loss, success and failure, the polarities that are part of existence, and of course part of every relationship.
