Years and years of struggle, and somehow always finding life coming up short….!!!
Never quite fitting right.
Something missing….



Enlightenment Is Not Special

~by Adyashanti

Do not think that enlightenment is going to make you special, it’s not. If you feel special in any way, then enlightenment has not occurred.



Silence

The only problem is that we focus on our thoughts and forget the background.



Arise Awake and Stop Not

We have collectively forgotten what it means to live. Let us look at it from a different perspective. We could live life either in a mechanical way or in a way that could be called conscious.



Dream On

If you substitute your dream that’s called “Once-I-was-Asleep,” for a newer dream that’s called “But-now-I-am-Awake,” you’re just moving from one jail cell to yet another.

I Am Also A Dream

MAI's picture



He who dreams ... does not know he is dreaming... . Only when he awakens does he know he has dreamt. But there is also the great awakening (ta-chiao), and then we see that [everything] here is nothing but a great dream. Of course, the fools believe that they are already awake-what foolishness! Confucius and you, both of you, are dreams; and I, who tell you this, am also a dream.
