It’s 1.30 am.
It’s quiet….the darkness of this hour.

Enlightenment is not bliss or peace of mind.

It is awareness aware that it is aware subsumed in the joy and awe of simply being.

Love Keeps You Safe

MAI's picture

Some one once said to me, that it's good to have a little bit of fear, because fear keeps you safe.
And my answer to that would be it's not fear that keeps you safe,
It's love that keeps you safe.
When you love yourself, you will not put yourself in the path of danger.

The One thing,
the Seeker can't know,

The One thing,
it longs for, more than anything else,

& The one thing,
it fears more than anything else,

Is the absence of itself.

Fear of Maya is like the fear experienced by a child going into the dark room. Light of understanding is the antidote that would cure this imaginary poison.

All desires at their birth are innocent like all new born. What must make them such a snare? Is it their christening ceremony? Is it fear? I will have to find out by keeping an eagle's eye.
