Your body is Space,

which surrounds it from all sides,

but your Consciousness is beyond space.

The whole space is the light of Consciousness.

When your body-identity goes,

you will see yourself pervading the entire Space.

~Nisargadatta Maharaj


Do we really die? …

The energy field that surrounds your body is conscious. You are the conscious energy that makes up your body.

— Michael Beckwith


The real way I built up my fame was by predicting the round I would knock out some guy…How do I do it? I do it by trying extra hard and the other boxer helps by worrying extra hard.

- Muhammad Ali


Compassion comes when we recognize that everyone suffers from the same mental illness, some more severe than others.

— Eckhart Tolle


Truth is a living experience

Not a belief system.

- Amoda Maa


If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?

― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn


A dog can never tell you what she knows from the smells of the world, but you know, watching her, that you know almost nothing.

— Mary Oliver


Consciousness is the mystery. It’s so close and all-pervasive we don’t notice it manifesting everywhere, in everything. In our culture we don’t even notice we’re no different from anything else in that regard. We’re simply another life form with our own kind of consciousness, with its assets and limitations. Of course we have unrealized potentials within the boundaries imposed by our physical circumstances…
