Nightly Spiritual Quote #393 Biocentrism

“When someone dismissively answers “Of course a tree makes a sound if no one’s nearby,” they are merely demonstrating their inability to ponder an event nobody attended. They’re finding it too difficult to take themselves out of the equation. They somehow continue to imagine themselves present when they are absent.”

Nightly Spiritual Quote #370 Osho

You cannot see clearly, because you are so full of expectations, hopes, desires. Your eyes are covered with many layers of dust: you need a deep cleansing of your eyes. That’s what meditation is. Let the thoughts disappear, the hopes disappear, the desires disappear. Then you have a clarity, then your eyes are perfect mirrors. Only then, in that silent state of your vision, will you know the secrets of the beyond.

The Gifts of Avadhuta Gita #1

There is but one antidote
to the poison of
highly dangerous passions,
which beget infatuation, and
that is to return to the Self.

Self is unapproachable
by the emotions,
is ever formless and
independent.

Hidden in the realm of
eternal consciousness
lies the world’s cause.
Within this cause
is Reality.

The husk of a coconut
is the world,
the pulp is the cause, and
the sweet cool water
encased in the pulp is Reality.

Like the full moon is the Self.
See It in all.
Duality is the product of
defective vision.
As there is only one moon
so there is only one Self in all.

Rosicrucian Reflections #146

“Humanity, when conscious of an eternal truth, has ever symbolized it so that the human consciousness could forever have realization of it. Nations, languages and customs have changed, and yet ancient symbols continue to illuminate us with their mystic light.” Ralph M. Lewis

Lessons from Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj #12

NOBLE DESIRES

Q: Which desires are cogent?

M: Desires that destroy their subjects, or objects, or do not subside on satisfaction are self-contradictory and cannot be fulfilled. Only desires motivated by love, goodwill, and compassion are beneficial to both the subject and object and can be fully satisfied.

Q: All desires are painful, the holy as well as the unholy.

M: They are not the same and pain is not the same. Passion is painful, compassion – never. The entire universe strives to fulfil a desire born of compassion.

— I AM THAT

Nightly Spiritual Quote #336 Buddhism

“The institutions of human society treat us as parts of a machine. They assign us ranks and place considerable pressure upon us to fulfill defined roles. We need something to help us restore our lost and distorted humanity. Each of us has feelings that have been suppressed and have built up inside. There is a voiceless cry resting in the depths of our souls, waiting for expression. Art gives the soul’s feelings voice and form.”
― Daisaku Ikeda
