Most auspicious advice: Remain empty.

Mooji's photo.

My most auspicious advice: Remain empty.
Leave all that personal mind-stuff aside.

Stay as impersonal Awareness alone. This is the highest way and choice.
Accept and follow this advice with all your heart.

You will find it sufficient to win you freedom.

~ Mooji

Stay in the emptiness of Being

Stay in the emptiness of Being.
Just stay there.
It is the only place where you can stay effortlessly.
And when you recognise the effortlessness of your Self,
the idea of ‘staying’ there will gradually fade away.
You don’t have to ‘stay’ as That which is permanent;
permanence does not need to remain as permanence.
It just Is.

~ Mooji

The music of stillness

When we transcend (the I-dentity/story of self) and dissolve into the field of love, there is no one there to utter anything…. everything just is as it is… there is no need to interupt or interfere, no need to controle, nothing to add and nothing to deduct. There is just pure omni pres(essence) of love. We can dive into this space with a bit of dicipline… it is a state of being we surf in and out of until we get comfortable enough to just let go and BE joy without seeking reason, without being attached to anything, without getting caught up by the ongoing chatter of thoughts moving thru our mind. It is the vibration of home of our soul immersed with source itself. The music of stillness itself.

Too Many Names

 From Poetry Chaikhana

 

Too Many Names

By Pablo Neruda
(1904 – 1973)

English version by Anthony Kerrigan

 

Mondays are meshed with Tuesdays
and the week with the whole year.
Time cannot be cut
with your weary scissors,
and all the names of the day
are washed out by the waters of night.

No one can claim the name of Pedro,
nobody is Rosa or Maria,
all of us are dust or sand,
all of us are rain under rain.
They have spoken to me of Venezuelas,
of Chiles and of Paraguays;
I have no idea what they are saying.
I know only the skin of the earth
and I know it is without a name.

When I lived amongst the roots
they pleased me more than flowers did,
and when I spoke to a stone
it rang like a bell.

It is so long, the spring
which goes on all winter.
Time lost its shoes.
A year is four centuries.

When I sleep every night,
what am I called or not called?
And when I wake, who am I
if I was not while I slept?

This means to say that scarcely
have we landed into life
than we come as if new-born;
let us not fill our mouths
with so many faltering names,
with so many sad formalities,
with so many pompous letters,
with so much of yours and mine,
with so much of signing of papers.

I have a mind to confuse things,
unite them, bring them to birth,
mix them up, undress them,
until the light of the world
has the oneness of the ocean,
a generous, vast wholeness,
a crepitant fragrance.

Becoming aware of silence

A user's photo.

“When you become aware of silence, immediately there is that state of inner still alertness. You are present. You have stepped out of thousands of years of collective human conditioning.”

–Eckhart Tolle

Empty of you, love shines

Handing heart

Love does not need an intention or object to love.
It is the highest expression of the being in recognition of itself.
It is the unity of Being.
Your being just radiates this love – effortlessly.
You are just your Self.
It is a state of emptiness.
It is there when you leave your luggage outside.
Luggage means who you think you are and
who you want to be.
Then it simply awakens in you because there is a space now for the beautiful One,

the presence of the Holy Father, the Holy Mother, the Holy Spirit, the One Supreme consciousness.
Surrender.
Be empty of ‘you’.
And It shines in that space – timelessly.

~ Mooji

We are literally stardust

'“The atoms of our bodies are traceable to stars that manufactured them in their cores and exploded these enriched ingredients across our galaxy, billions of years ago. For this reason, we are biologically connected to every other living thing in the world. We are chemically connected to all molecules on Earth. And we are atomically connected to all atoms in the universe. We are not figuratively, but literally stardust.”<br />
-Neil deGrasse Tyson'
