Relative & Absolute


“Just as the word chariot is merely a means of expressing how axle, body, wheel, and poles are brought together in a certain relationship, but when we look at each of them one by one there is no chariot in an absolute sense; and just as the word house is a way of expressing how wood and other materials stand in relationship to each other in a certain space, but in the absolute sense there is no house; and just as the word fist is an expression for the finger and thumb in relationship, and tree for trunk, branches, leaves, and so on, but in an absolute sense there is no fist or tree in exactly the same way the words living entity and person are but ways of expressing the relationship of body, feeling, and consciousness, but when we come to examine the elements of being, one by one, we find there is no entity there. In the absolute sense there is only name and form and the mystery which they express. Such ideas as "I" and "I am" are not absolute.”

On the NOW!


“Most people treat the present moment as if it 
were an obstacle that they need to overcome. 
Since the present moment is life itself, 
it is an insane way to live.”

Eckhart Tolle

Angels and Light



“We can think of angels as light, and it helps us to understand them, because they have all the properties of light. Light is very fast; it can travel across very vast distances in just a blink of the eye. A light illuminates the darkness, and angels can illuminate the darkness in our lives and in our minds.”

On blossoming...


“And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight 
inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to 
blossom.”

With Every Breath (Anonymous)


With every breath I take today,
I vow to be awake;

And every step I take,
I vow to take with a grateful heart

So I may see with eyes of love
into the hearts of all I meet,

To ease their burden when I can
And touch them with a smile of peace.

(Thanks to the unknown author!)

Purpose....


"Each person comes into this world with a specific destiny; he (she) has something to fulfill, some message has to be delivered, some work has to be completed. You are not here accidentally; you are here meaningfully. There is a purpose behind you. The Whole intends to do something through you."

Osho

Our enlightened essence...


“The Buddha could accomplish the enlightened mind because its very nature was already there. That is why Buddhahood, enlightenment, is possible. If there were no such nature or potential, it would be impossible.”

His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Thought and matter


Matter is the evolution of energy. First there is thought, then there is thought form, and then there is matter. Matter is only thought that has been thought upon by more.

Dissolving dualities...


“Consider movement stationary and the stationary in motion, both movement and rest disappear. When such dualities cease to exist Oneness itself cannot exist. To this ultimate finality no law or description applies.”

Best description of Mind and Matter...

"This tree always wanted to be a Tuba!"

"Thought that is projected, now thinks. So it's not possible to separate the thinker from the thought, because the thinker thinks a thought, and then the thought thinks and becomes a thinker, and then the thought, that was a thought that is now a thinker, thinks another thought, which becomes a thinker, also. And so, there is a constant summoning of Life Force. Now, a thought that is thought longer becomes Thought Form. A thought that is thought upon by many, becomes Thought Form. A thought that is thought upon by many, in a very clear undiluted fashion, as from Nonphysical Perspective where there is no resistance, becomes physical matter. That's why the physical universe is a by-product of the Nonphysical attention or focus. So, the Nonphysical Energy that created this physical mass from the Energy of the Universe, the mass itself, now becomes a thought that is thinking, that is attracting the Energy."

Esther Hicks (Abraham)

and you help them to become what they are capable of being.”

you have already found truth without it.”

Emoto...


When you have become the Embodiment of Gratitude, 
think about how Pure the Water that fills your Body will be.
When this happens, you Yourself will be a Beautiful Shining 
Crystal of Light.

for you never know how soon it will 
be too late.”

our whole life would change.”
