"Being conscious is cutting through your own melodrama
and being right here.
Exist in no mind, be empty, here now, and trust that as a situation arises, out of you will come what is necessary
to deal with that situation including the use of your intellect when appropriate.
Your intellect need not be constantly held on to
to keep reassuring you that you know where you’re at,
out of fear of loss of control.
Ultimately, when you stop identifying so much
with your physical body and with your psychological entity,
that anxiety starts to disintegrate. And your start to define yourself as in flow with the universe; and whatever comes along ~ death, life joy, sadness ~ is grist for the mill of awakening, Not this versus that but whatever."
(Ram Dass)

"Our minds are often filled with memories of the past or of worries about the future.
What gets missed is the present - Now - and right there in the moment is the doorway into timelessness.

We're all affecting the world every single moment - even if we mean to or not.Our actions and our states of mind matter because we're so deeply interconnected with one another - whether we realise it or not.
Working on our own consciousness is about the most important thing that we can be doing at any moment - and being love is our supreme creative act.

As long as we have certain ideas or desires about how it should be - we can't see how it is. We need to stop being limited by who we think we are or how we think others should be.

The spiritual journey is individualand highly personal.
It can’t be organized or regulated and it isn’t true that everyone should follow one path.
Listen to your own truth. Be open to all teachers and all teachings - and listen with your heart.

It's not about becoming somebody - it's really about becoming nobody and what one person has to offer to another is their own being nothing more - but nothing less."
(Ram Dass)

In India when people meet and part they often say "Namastè" which means…

I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides,
I honor the place in you of love, of light, of truth, of peace.
I honor the place within you where if you are in that place in you
and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us.
