FROM SUPERFICIALITY TO SPIRTUALITY - the journey back home

Sep

In the depths of the mind we always feel a lacking and a sense of belonging to something permanantely. This sense of lacking and looking for fulfilment to be whole happens to the whole human race. In terms of society, we look for fulfilment in relationships, money, power, position, security, and possessions. The spiritual seeker is also looking for fulfilment in religious dogmas, meditation, yoga and the 101 other things they believe in to become whole. However, this fulfilment, sense of permanent wholeness is never found.

Relationships to oneness

Sep

Relationships with others in the deepest sense is the discovery that others are non other than yourself. Relationships can be a mirror in which we can what we truly are, by seeing things as they truly are and not projecting images of what another is.

The untouched inner sky

Thought created from the vastness of ourselves, like a cloud appearing in the sky. The cloud can be light, the cloud can be heavy and thunderous. But the sky in which the clouds arise and subside remains untouched. So is the beauty of ourselves, from the everchanging manifestations of clouds to the unmanifested sky. I am!

I've experience my own death, and found that even without being alive, I Lived.

Without time in which anything could be perceived,
Still... I existed, prior to the arising of... anything.

In that Nothingness prior to Anything, I am Fullness.
I am not "that which is alive".
I am "Life Itself".
I Am.

Endless Enlightening

Sep

Is one "enlightened" with the cessation of identification with manifest form - body, mind, emotions, and all aggregates of personal identity?

Is one "enlightened" when one feels one's self expanded as all that is?

July 14th satsang (a belated entry ;-)

Aug

The shakti was so strong at the SF Zen Center satsang on July 14th that I felt like I was melting back into primordial energy.
