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.
From Poetry Chaikhana —
|Too Many Names
By Pablo Neruda
English version by Anthony Kerrigan
Mondays are meshed with Tuesdays
No one can claim the name of Pedro,
When I lived amongst the roots
It is so long, the spring
When I sleep every night,
This means to say that scarcely
I have a mind to confuse things,
“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.”
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.
Be empty of ‘you’.
And It shines in that space – timelessly.
“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.”
-Neil deGrasse Tyson
