Shift your attention from words to silence and you will hear. ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
My intention is to help the collective remember their own magnificence…My hope is that no one believes me but will be curious enough to look and find out for themselves, within themself. ~ Mynzah
Meditation is a deliberate attempt to pierce into the higher states of consciousness and finally go beyond it. The art of meditation is the art of shifting the focus of attention to ever subtler levels, without losing one’s grip on the levels left behind. In a way it is like having death under control. One begins with the lowest levels: social circumstances, customs and habits; physical surroundings, the posture and the breathing of the body, the senses, their sensations and perceptions; the mind, its thoughts and feelings; until the entire mechanism of personality is grasped and firmly held. The final stage of meditation is reached when the sense of identity goes beyond the ‘I-am-so-and-so’, beyond ‘so-l-am’, beyond ‘I-am-the-witness-only’, beyond ‘there-is’, beyond all ideas into the impersonally personal pure being. But you must be energetic when you take to meditation. It is definitely not a part-time occupation. Limit your interests and activities to what is needed for you and your dependents’ barest needs. Save all your energies and time for breaking the wall your mind had built around you. Believe me, you will not regret. ~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
“The Great spiritual geniuses, whether it was Moses, Buddha, Plato, Socrates, Christ, or Emerson…have taught to look within to find God.” ~ Ernest Shurtleff Holmes
In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself. ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
“If you want the truth, I’ll tell you the truth. Listen to the secret sound, the real sound, which is inside you.” ~ Kabir
