Buddha quote

Delightful are the forests where worldlings delight not; the passionless will rejoice (therein), (for) they seek no sensual pleasures

The soul

For the soul there is neither birth nor death at any time. He has not come into being, does not come into being, and will not come into being. He is unborn, eternal, ever-existing, and primeval. He is not slain when the body is slain.

Wisdom

After many births and deaths, he who is actually in knowledge surrenders unto Me, knowing Me to be the cause of all causes and all that is. Such a great soul is very rare.

Gita

Material world is like a dream.

Love this from the gita

Every living entity regardless of whether he be human, demigod, animal, bird, bee or whatever — is part and parcel of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

True gita knowledge

As soon as the body is finished, all material achievements are also finished. No one takes with him anything he has achived materially in this world. The only thing he can carry with him is his asset of devotional service; that alone is “never vanquished”.

Gita

Human life is meant for subduing the modes of passion and ignorance and advancing in the mode of goodness.

The puzzle

Scattered-Puzzle-Pieces-300x242You are complete and lacking in nothing. When we buy a puzzle it is full of many separate pieces, or so it appears. In reality the puzzle picture is complete only now we don’t see it because of the many pieces. We to are all one and complete. We lack nothing! Just as in the puzzle we are complete and just as the puzzle appears as individual parts so we think ourselves to be. We are not a part of the puzzle, we are the puzzle. As we realize I am not this body. I am not my name,job,title,house,feelings, these are ALL concepts and all concepts and duality are NOT real! They are only in the mind. You are the absolute reality! You are all things! All but the absolute is nothing more than a concept and shall vanish as all concepts do. You shall always and forever remain and are the true creator of all that is for without you nothing can be!

More beauty from the upanishads

tumblr_lwybebwJbI1r4n5wmo1_r2_500Those who see all creatures in themselves and themselves in all creatures know no fear. Those who see all creatures in themselves and themselves in all creatures know no grief. How can the multiplicity of life delude the one who sees its unity? May the Lord of love, who projects himself into this universe of myriad forms, from whom ALL beings come and to whom all return, grant us the grace of wisdom. Those who dwell on and long for sense-pleasure are born in a world of separateness. But let them realize they are the SELF and ALL separateness will fall away. We are all things! All things are us! There really is only the SELF, all else such as form,name,me,and mine arise like bubbles in the ocean and just as the bubbles burst and become one with the ocean which is what they are anyway so will our form,and name be dissolved back into the supreme all that we are anyway. To end a quote from nisargadatta- In reality only the ultimate is. The rest is a matter of name and form. And as long as you cling to the idea that only what has a name and shape exists, the supreme will appear to you non-existing. When you understand that names and shapes are hollow shells without any content whatsoever, and what is real is nameless and shapeless, pure energy of life and light of consciousness, you will be at peace immersed in the deep silence of reality.

Avadhuta Gita and who we really are.

beautiful-stream-PY73_lAll your senses are like clouds; All they show is an endless mirage.

I know the nature of the one supreme being; Like space, it extends everywhere. And all the forms that appear within it are like the illusory water of a desert mirage.

When you know all this universe of forms to be as vacant as the sky, then you’ll know Brahman; Duality will forever cease to be.

Think of our true nature as the ocean and the body as the waves. The waves, just as our bodies, arise for awhile then subside again. Soon other waves, or forms arise and they to also subside. Is the ocean changed by this? In this world one generation after the next rises for awhile, then is gone. Who we really are is the ocean! most believe they are the body, and it’s desires. We are not but because we believe ourselves to be we suffer. Suffering is caused by desire, and attachment to things which are not permanent. Our bodies,jobs,cars,house, even our wife or husband are not permanent. In reality all are one! There is no me, and mine! In the Katha upanishad it says, The mortal in whose heart desire is dead becomes immortal. Desire and attachment keep us going round on the great wheel of illusion known as birth,death, and rebirth. To be liberated and free one must remember who he truly is! The supreme self, The eternal God, or brahman! You are eternal light, and life! You are all things! Remember all things that perish are NOT eternal. Focus on the self that is pure awareness the witness of all things yet untouched by all.  A final verse from the bhgavat gitaImage, He who knows that he is,himself, the Lord of all, and is ever the same in all, immortal though experiencing the field of mortality, he knows the truth of existence.
