“We don’t have a future together. We only have right here, right now.
To the ego, that’s incredibly depressing. But to recognise the utter preciousness of this moment liberates me from the need to possess or control you. In this timelessness, we truly meet.”

Q

hannahmarymei asked:

Why is it that the material, non-awakened life is so tempting and easy to fall back into, if the non-material, awakened life is our natural state?

A

lazyyogi:

I think it was Ramana Maharshi who said that abiding in peace and harmony is as natural for a self-realized human as delusional habit is natural for the ignorant human. 

The naturalness of the two are actually the same. What is natural? Happiness. Bliss. 

So what is the difference? The saint knows where happiness is to be found while the ordinary human does not. 

The ordinary human feels happiness but mistakes its origin. A kiss from a pretty girl, a stroll on a beautiful day, a glass of scotch and a joint. The ordinary human experiences these pleasures but does not recognize the location and source of the happiness. 

Where is happiness felt? Within. What is the source of that happiness? Existence. 

This cannot be a belief. It must be examined and verified in your own direct experience. 

First we must recognize that no matter how great a pleasure or joy may be, it is never enough. There is never a pinnacle experience of joy that satisfies you for the rest of your life. This is the initial recognition of the many ways in which we unknowingly limit our bliss and happiness. 

Then we must be mindful enough amidst the joy of our typical pleasures to stop and look within and recognize that happiness is being felt and enjoyed within. 

Once you have known the limited nature of material joys and the unlimited nature of existential bliss, there is no more temptation at play. There may be vestiges of habit but no longer is there confusion. 

Material joy is nothing other than limited existential bliss. It is limited by confusion, like confusing moonlight to actually come from the moon. It comes from the sun. Similarly, you shine your bliss onto the material things you enjoy and then mistake those things as the source of your joy. 

The point isn’t drawing distinctions between the material and the awakened but rather unburdening and unlimiting your boundless naturalness of bliss.

"Your constant flight from pain and search for pleasure is a sign of the love you bear for your Self, all I plead with you is this: make love of your Self perfect. Deny yourself nothing — give your Self infinity and eternity and discover that you do not need them; you are beyond." ~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Namaste :) Much love. 

“Sometimes the sun shines and it still rains. The weather changes all the time. You can too.”
 Iain S. Thomas, I Wrote This For You (via teenager90s)

(via redroseofcairo)

“Instead of asking ourselves, “How can I find security and happiness?” we could ask ourselves, “Can I touch the center of my pain? Can I sit with suffering, both yours and mine, without trying to make it go away? Can I stay present to the ache of loss or disgrace—disappointment in all its many forms—and let it open me?” This is the trick.”
— Pema Chödron (via yeshecholwa)

(via redroseofcairo)

“You are unbounded Awareness — Bliss, Supreme Bliss - in which the universe appears like the mirage of a snake in a rope. Be happy. It is true what they say: “You are what you think.” If you think you are bound you are bound. If you think you are free you are free. You are Self—the Solitary Witness. You are perfect, all-pervading, One. You are free, desireless, forever still. The universe is but a seeming in You.”
Ashtavakra Gita (via yeshecholwa)

(via redroseofcairo)

“Of course, thinking is important, but quite a lot of our thinking is useless. It is as if, in our head, each of us has a cassette tape that is always running, day and night.”
— Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace is Every Step (via simpleyogi)

(via redroseofcairo)

“To offer no resistance to life is to be in a state of grace, ease, and lightness. This state is then no longer dependent upon things being in a certain way, good or bad. It seems almost paradoxical, yet when your inner dependency on form is gone, the general conditions of your life, the outer forms, tend to improve greatly. Things, people, or conditions that you thought you needed for your happiness now come to you with no struggle or effort on your part, and you are free to enjoy and appreciate them - while they last. All those things, of course, will still pass away, cycles will come and go, but with dependency gone there is no fear of loss anymore. Life flows with ease.”
—  Eckhart Tolle (via purplebuddhaproject)

Found on Do As One. Although many have not heard of him, Nikola Tesla invented many, if not most, of the electric and electronic technology that we use today. After demonstrating that electricity could be generated and transmitted for next to no cost, without burning fuels, JP Morgan withdrew his funding, and the mass media began a campaign to smear Tesla and label him as crazy. Since then he has been all but written out of history. Google him.
