The journey is simple
from the fragmented many…
to the individual one…to the cosmic all
live life…love life…accept life with laughter and joy
life is a pure celebration of you…a celebration of your being
being alive each moment in this dance of this universe
Accept yourself exactly the way you are
do not fight yourself
and trust your inner being
this message sets you free
just to be
no judgment…no denying
Just accept yourself exactly how you are
and the struggle will disappear
and your energy will become a vast reservoir of love
settled and relaxed
then you can listen deeply
and trust your inner being
Therapies can work on your body.
They can work on your mind.
They can work on your emotions.
You are not the body
You are not the mind
You are not the emotions
So what is therapy doing?
Meditativeness, Meditation is not the body mind emotion
Love yourself…accept yourself…be yourself
these qualities will create for the first time
an individual whose inner flame is undividable
a great pool of energy will gather and surround you
with this an inner trust will arise from within you
We’ve been opening ourselves to the grief, to the knowing of what’s taking place, the loss of species, the destruction of the natural world, the unimaginable levels of social injustice and economic injustice that deprive so many human beings of basic opportunities. And as we open to the pain of that, there’s a possibility of embracing that pain and that grief in a way that it becomes a strength, a power to respond. There is the possibility that the energy that has been bound in the repression of it can now flow through us and energize us, make us clearer, more alive, more passionate, committed, courageous, determined people.
Every man, when he gets quiet, when he becomes desperately honest with himself, is capable of uttering profound truths.
We all derive from the same source. There is no mystery about the origin of things.
We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians; we have only to open up, only to discover what is already there.
Caterpillars chew their way through ecosystems leaving a path of destruction as they get fatter and fatter. When they finally fall asleep and a chrysalis forms around them, tiny new imaginal cells, as biologists call them, begin to take form within their bodies. The caterpillar’s immune system fights these new cells as though they were foreign intruders, and only when they crop up in greater numbers and link themselves together are they strong enough to survive. Then the caterpillar’s immune system fails and its body dissolves into a nutritive soup which the new cells recycle into their developing butterfly. The caterpillar is a necessary stage but becomes unsustainable once its job is done. There is no point in being angry with it and there is no need to worry about defeating it. The task is to focus on building the butterfly, the success of which depends on powerful positive and creative efforts in all aspects of society and alliances built among those engaged in them.
The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.
Exempt to time and space,
You are of the Infinite.
Embrace the sky,
And fall from earth.
