nothing more......

It has been quiet for some time around here; do you guys ( also ) have the feeling ( sometimes), that there is nothing more to be said or to be written?
That all that there is left is "you" and "yourself"?

Work

This reminds me of the old saying:


If I am "I" because you are "you",
And if you are "you" because I am "I".
Then I am not "I"
And you are not "you".

Wow!!

Consciousness and life - both you may call God; but you are beyond both, beyond God, beyond being and not- being.

Nisargadatta quotes

This part of an article ( I forgot the source) could help some of us stay" with both feet on the ground": As the pretenses fade, we find ourselves moving closer and closer to our Soul-Self. This is where the Mind becomes even more insidious. Afraid of giving up its hold, the Mind begins to generate ...

Different Perspectives

As long as the "world" is "divided" in "ignorant" and "not ignorant" people we keep having these differences. It is part of the "game" that Consciousness is playing with Itself! Everything is as it is and all IS well! "Ignorant" is he who associates himself with his ego and actually thinks he IS tha...

Gangaji

I don't mean that you should be afraid or ashamed or something like that. The point is ( the way I see it): The "One" we really are doesn't need to become enlightened, in fact doesn't need anything at all. It just IS! So the way I see it, we are all "enlightened"! ( to use that WORD)... And the one ...

Gangaji

It takes a lot of courage to say openly that "one" is enlightened. The next question would be: WHO is saying that WHO is enlightened?

You're quite right! These are things you've got to experience DIRECTLY! Do YOU experience it directly, Ihavesayso?

Christ in you

I know what you mean, Anna, at least I think that I know! I wouldn't use the word "consolation", I'd rather use the word "compassion" (words, again!). And of course: life is hard and there is suffering, but let's face it: isn't most of this "suffering" due to the fact that we identify ourselves with...

Christ in you

We can see at it however we like, they will all remain the product of our MIND! In other words, just THOUGHTS..........whether we "like" it or not....isn't that right? Just concepts................words..........
Isn't it more "challenging" to find out WHO is "having" these thoughts??

Christ in you

It's a very long text; didn't have time to read it all. The impression given (at least to me!) is that we need "Christ" to be "saved". One might think that one needs another one to be okay, that one oneself is worthless, useless and no good. Sounds typical "churchly"!
Correct me if I'm wrong.....

Nisargadatta quote

Since Nisargadatta is being quoted, let's enjoy another one of his precious quotes: There are many persons who have a great attachment to their own individuality. They want first and foremost to remain as an individual and then search, for they are not prepared to lose that individuality. While reta...

I think therefore I am

I know what you mean, Anna. One can call It whatever one wants to.....then it is just a concept...............We love concepts , and sometimes we need concepts too to get rid of yet other concepts............But at the end we have to throw away all concepts. Who was it who said that we have to use c...

I think therefore I am

Thanks for your points of view on this matter. I (also) don't agree with Descartes' statement. In my opinion the "Being-ness" comes before all else!
That "being-ness" I see like a sort of "love to be". From "nothing-ness"to "being-ness", "knowing-ness".
