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."

"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."
