Tao Te Ching

“When you merge with the Universe,
the whole world is attracted to you,
discovering through you
its own security, peace and good health.”
—Tao Te Ching, v. 35

Silence

Silence

“Let me sit here,
on the threshold
of two worlds,
Lost in the eloquence 
of silence.”
—Rumi

The Field of Love

The Field of Love

“Out beyond ideas 
of wrongdoing 
and rightdoing,
there is a field. 
I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down 
in that grass,
the world is too full 
to talk about.
Ideas, language, 
even the phrase 
“each other”
doesn’t make any sense.

The breeze at dawn 
has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.

You must ask for what 
you really want.

Don’t go back to sleep.

People are going 
back and forth 
across the doorsill
where the two worlds 
touch.

The door is round 
and open.

Don’t go back to sleep.”
— Rumi

The Thinker

The Thinker

The thinker is the psychological entity who has accumulated experience as knowledge; he is the time-bound centre that is the result of ever-changing environmental influence, and from this centre he looks, he listens, he experiences. As long as one does not understand the structure and the anatomy of this centre, there must always be conflict, and a mind in conflict cannot possibly understand the depth and the beauty of meditation.

In meditation there can be no thinker, which means that thought must come to an end—the thought which is urged forward by the desire to achieve a result. Meditation has nothing to do with achieving a result. It is not a matter of breathing in a particular way, or looking at your nose, or awakening the power to perform certain tricks, or any of the rest of that immature nonsense. … Meditation is not something apart from life. When you are driving a car or sitting in a bus, when you are chatting aimlessly, when you are walking by yourself in a wood or watching a butterfly being carried along by the wind—to be choicelessly aware of all that is part of meditation.

Complete Already

Complete Already

“On a deeper level you are already complete. When you realise that, there is a joyous energy behind what you do.” – Eckhart Tolle
The Message of Love

The Message of Love

” I go into my heart, like into a room, and I sit and talk to whoever, and whatever energies involved, and I see the things I want fixed or healed, done, and then I enjoy the feeling of having all these things healed.  Our loving hearts are the key.  I promise you, they want us to be confused and baffled and startled and horrified.  It makes us weak, and takes our minds off love, and distracts us from our powerful creative forces.  The darkness gets more of our power, every moment that we think about them and their terrible behavior.  It is very powerful to laugh at their fear of us. Laughing at them is potent. ” – Eileen Lynn

Just Who is Running the World

Just Who is Running the World

“The unrealised person sees the world as a thing running him; the realised person sees it as his own projection and therefore can run it and it cannot run him. Being a Master over it, He resides ever the same, in peace and tranquillity, and lives in complete ease all the time.” – Lester Levenson

Resistance to What Is

Resistance to What Is

“Inner resistance to whatever arises in the present moment pulls you back into unconsciousness. Inner resistance is some form of negativity, complaining, fear, aggression, or anger. This is important because whenever you complain about what somebody else does you’re already beginning to fall into that trap of unconsciousness.” – Eckhart Tolle
