“One thing: you have to walk, and create the way by your walking; you will not find a ready-made path. It is not so cheap, to reach to the ultimate realization of truth. You will have to create the path by walking yourself; the path is not ready-made, lying there and waiting for you. It is just like the sky: the birds fly, but they don't leave any footprints. You cannot follow them; there are no footprints left behind.”

“With me, illusions are bound to be shattered. I am here to shatter all illusions. Yes, it will irritate you, it will annoy you - that's my way of functioning and working. I will sabotage you from your very roots! Unless you are totally destroyed as a mind, there is no hope for you.”

Swami Vivekananda
“Feel nothing, know nothing, do nothing, have nothing, give up all to God, and say utterly, 'Thy will be done.' We only dream this bondage. Wake up and let it go.”
Swami Vivekananda

“Our duty is wakefulness, the fundamental condition of life itself. The unseen, the unheard, the untouchable is what weaves the fabric of our see-able universe together.”

Swami Vivekananda
“There is no God separate from you, no God higher than you, the real 'you'. All the gods are little beings to you, all the ideas of God and Father in heaven are but your own reflection. God Himself is your image. 'God created man after His own image.' That is wrong. Man creates God after his own image. That is right. Throughout the universe we are creating gods after our own image. We create the god and fall down at his feet and worship him; and when this dream comes, we love it!”
Swami Vivekananda, The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda: v. 3

Ramana Maharshi
“There is neither creation nor destruction,
neither destiny nor free will, neither
path nor achievement.
This is the final truth.”
Ramana Maharshi, Sayings of Sri Ramana Maharshi

“I just realized that I don't have to have an opinion about everything--what a relief!”
David R. Hawkins

“It is only through silent awareness that our physical and mental nature can change. This change is completely spontaneous. If we make an effort to change we do no more than shift our attention from one level, from one thing, to another. We remain in a vicious circle. This only transfers energy from one point to another. It still leaves us oscillating between suffering and pleasure, each leading inevitably back to the other. Only living stillness, stillness without someone trying to be still, is capable of undoing the conditioning our biologoical, emotional and psychological nature has undergone. There is no controller, no selector, no personality making choices. In choiceless living the situation is given the freedom to unfold. You do not grasp one aspect over another for there is nobody to grasp. When you understand something and live it without being stuck to the formulation, what you have understood dissolves in your openness. In this silence change takes place of its own accord, the problem is resolved and duality ends. You are left in your glory where no one has understood and nothing has been understood.”
Jean Klein, I Am

Saurabh Sharma
“A Strange Prayer:

Dear Lord,
I, the self searching illusion, has seen and experienced the outer world:
success and failure,
true friends,
strangers and backbiters.

I lived the different emotions
during different seasons;
I witnessed ups & downs,
enjoyed love & hate,
was good & bad,
faced beauty & ugliness.

There were times when I was brave,
there were times when I was a coward.
There were times when I was proactive,
there were times when I was indecisive.

After, flying high in the skies,
and yet being a loser...

After, being nothing & no one,
and yet feeling content..

I have understood
the difference
between lust and love,
happiness and sadness,
selfishness and selflessness.

One often leads to another;
another secretly carries the one!
Yet I am lost
between being and becoming.

An inner voice admits that
my heart is an unexplored realm,
my mind is a prisoner to my wishful thinking,
and the soul is unknown to me.

Setting that unknown free...
now, this is my heartiest wish.

As Saurabh Sharma,
the human being,
pray to thee, " O lord, set me free.
I don't want love,
I don't want to be loved;

I want myself to be love itself now.

That beautiful, silent and divine existence...!
I want to get merged into that.

Please give me wisdom and courage; Merge me into your supreme kingdom
by setting my soul free.”
Saurabh Sharma

“The path of awakening

"All of your past selves are walking behind you,
like a shadow, waiting for you to awaken fully.
Waiting for you to return home.
To the Oneness.
To love, wisdom, silence and compassion.
The child you once were is still with you.
It is waiting to receive the unconditional love
and acceptance which it has always wanted
which will finally heal it, calm it
and enable it to relax and surrender
into the vastness of your Being.
Into the light of consciousness.
And it is not just the child
who is walking behind you.
All the identities from past incarnations
are still with you.
The seeker. The pirate.
The highwayman. The sage....”
Leonard Jacobsonobson Words from Silence

“Advaita” in Sanskrit means “Non-Duality.” This is a difficult concept for most people as we look about us and see multiple objects. But what we see are only transformations not permanent forms, whether we are speaking of a chair, a tree, or a human being. Each exists provisionally, but is certainly not lasting. One day the tree may become the chair and the human body will be eaten by worms. The “I” that observes all this may disappear and become another “I”.”
Justin Stone
