Unnatural Thought

Trying to think the unthinkable, is doing something unnatural to thought. Abandoning such a practice therefore, I am now established.

The Adventure

B-friend's picture

Q: Unless I am told what to do and how to do it, I feel lost.

By all means do feel lost! As long as you feel competent and confident, reality is beyond your reach. Unless you accept inner adventure as a way of life, discovery will not come to you.

— Nisargadatta Maharaj

Them who seek

that there is no place for a way.

Road to Truth

B-friend's picture

There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth:
not going all the way... and not starting.

The one who explains, lies.
How can you describe
the true form of Something
In whose presence you are blotted out?
And in whose being you still exist?
