We don’t see the Universe right in front of us

“We are so addicted, either to materialism or to transcending material reality, that we don’t see [the Universe] right in front of us, in the beggar, the starving child, the brokenhearted woman; in our friend; in the cat; in the flea. We miss it..

All mystical systems are addicted to transcending this reality. This addiction is part of the reason why the world is being destroyed. The monotheistic religions honor an off-planet God and would sacrifice this world and its attachments to the adoration of that God.

But the “God” I met was both immanent and transcendent. This world is not an illusion, and the philosophies that say it is are half-baked half-truths. In an authentic mystical experience, the world does disappear and reveal itself as the dance of the divine consciousness.

But then it reappears, and you see that everything you are looking at is God/Universe, and everything you’re touching is God/Universe. This vision completely shatters you.”

A quiet mind is all you need. All else will happen rightly, once your mind is quiet.

You are always pure awareness

You are pure awareness.
You are not awareness sometimes
and other times not awareness.
The idea that you are only sometimes aware
and sometimes not aware
is itself an idea appearing in unbroken awareness.
Be aware of this.

~ Mooji

Empty yourself and become one with the Tao

Empty yourself of everything.
Let the mind become still.
The ten thousand things rise and fall
while the Self watches their return.
They grow and flourish
and then return to the source.

Returning to the source is stillness,
which is the way of nature.

Knowing constancy,
the mind is open.

With an open mind,
you will be openhearted.
Being openhearted,
you will act royally.
Being royal, you will
attain the divine.

Being divine, you will be
at one with the Tao.
Being at one with the Tao
is eternal.

And though the body dies,
the Tao will never pass away.

~Lao Tsu

Intangibility of one’s true being

“There’s a kind of intangibility of one’s true being. You can’t grasp what you are but you can’t lose what you are.”
