You have been drinking and drinking
And still your thirst is not satisfied.
Oh Fortunate One!
Drink now from the fountain of enlightened mind."

hollow - it only becomes deeper - so deep that words are too shallow to try to
convey the richness. Seung Sahn
The Truth is to be realized here in this life … The world you reach after
the body is shed is determined by the level of consciousness reached
while in the body. Kularnava Tantra

back home - to turn the spark within into a blaze, to be merged
in and to identify with that greater fire which ignited the
"Meditation is not just a practice. Meditation is a natural state. It's an actual
channel in our consciousness, a bandwidth of tranquility ... Once you
discover how to tune yourself to the meditation bandwidth, it will empower
your life from within." Sally Kempton

kinship and practice every penance known, you cannot gain the
ultimate bliss until you reach the feet of the master." Ramana

Hard to come by and easily destroyed.
I will now give it meaning.

You must ask for what you really want
Don't go back to sleep
People are going back and forth

The door is round and open.

There is no saint without a past
and no sinner without a future.
If you cannot praise someone,
let them out of your life.
Be original, be inventive.
Take courage again and again.
Do not imitate; be strong, be upright.
Do not lean on the crutches of others.
Think with your own head. Be yourself.
All perfection and every divine virtue
are hidden within you.
Reveal them to the world.
Wisdom, too, is already within you.
Let it shine forth.
Let the Lord's grace set you free.
Let your life be that of the rose;
in silence, it speaks the language of fragrance.
Now you must go back and tell the people that this is THE HOUR.
There are things to be considered: Where are you living? What are
you doing? What are your relationships? Are you in right relation?
Where is your water? Know your garden.
It is time to speak your truth. Create your community. Be good to
each other. And do not look outside yourself for the leader.

of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes
open, and our heads above water! See who is there with you and
At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally -- least of
all, ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and
journey comes to a halt.
The time for the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves!
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in
We are the ones we've been waiting for!"

patterns are fighting tooth and nail to hold on to their money and their
power, but their efforts will be in vain.

In order to fulfill your individual facet of this unfolding Divine Plan, go
within to the deepest recesses of your heart and ask your I AM Presence
how you can be the greatest force of Light, right here and right now . . .
What can you do to bring more love, joy, abundance and peace into your
own life and the lives of those who are in your sphere of influence?
You will be amazed at the answers you receive. This is your moment. Now

A great quote:
Remember, the body does not last for ever! Age prowls like a leopard,
diseases strike like an enemy!
It is a wonder how people can be so complacent and unmindful when
everywhere there is thunder of crash!
Time flies without your knowing. Prosperity is like a dream, youth like a
blossom, life-span momentary like lightning.
Even a hundred years is too little -- half the life is spent in sleep and the other
half is made infructuous by infancy, disease, misery, age and what not.
"Deluded by ignorance (avidya), he looks not at what is seen, grasps not what
is heard, follows not what is read.
He fails to see that with every moment that passes this body decays.
The Wolf of Time rushes upon him when he is still prattling of my children, my
wife, my wealth, my relations.
Death swallows him when he is still thinking of what is done, what is yet to be
done and what is half-done.
"Therefore today do what is required for tomorrow, in the morning do what is
meant for the afternoon! Death waits not to see what is done or not done!"
"BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD." (Psalm 46:10)
So first, BE STILL.
Still" iin Hebrew is "Raphah" -- drop, let go, relax, allow to be slack, fail, abandon.
Believers! It is time to shift from blind belief to
the search for reality. Don't kill your Quest!
Yogi Gorak Nath
that follows the storm: not till then. It shall
grow, it will shoot up, it will make
branches and leaves and form buds, while
the storm continues, while the battle lasts.
But not till the whole personality of the
man is dissolved and melted -- not until it
is held by the divine fragment which has
created it, as a mere subject for grave
experiment and experience -- not until the
whole nature has yielded and become
subject unto its higher self, can the bloom
Then will come a calm such as comes in a
tropical country after the heavy rain, when
Nature works so swiftly that one may see
And in the deep silence the mysterious
event will occur which will prove that the
way has been found.
Call it by what name you will, it is a voice
that speaks where there is none to speak --
it is a messenger that comes, a messenger
without form or substance; or it is the
flower of the soul that has opened.
But it can be felt after, looked for, and
desired, even amid the raging of the storm.
The silence may last a moment of time or it
may last a thousand years. But ... you will
carry its strength with you.
Again and again the battle must be fought
Light on the Path El Morya, as transcribed by
the Sun never says to the Earth
'You owe me!'
Look what happens with a love like that
It lights the whole sky"
El Sol nunca dice a la Tierra
'Tu me debes'.
Mire lo que pasa con un amor asi,
Se ilumine el Cielo entero."
"Remember for just one minute of the day
It would be best to look upon yourself as God does
For thus is revealed your true royal nature"
-- Acuerdete por solo un minuto del dia
Verte a ti mismo como lo vea Dios
Porque asi es revelada tu verdadera naturaleza real
Now is the time for you to deeply compute
the impossibility that there is anything but Grace"
"Like a great starving beast my body is quivering
Fixed on the scent of Light"
I might even hire angels
To play - just for you"
"Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has
purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn
"A tremendous "knowing" comes effortlessly into the mind when it falls into Silence, when it
gives up trying to understand, when its reel of stored images no longer projects abstract pictures
onto the clean screen of simplicity.
This kind of knowing is transmitted to us as pure revelation, as clarity untouched by words or
other symbols of meaning. When we allow this knowing into our minds, our very lives become
as clear and startling as this knowing."
"Silence is the essential condition of happiness."
