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

the true form of Something
In whose presence you are blotted out?
And in whose being you still exist?
