Phroggy's quotes

Adyashanti on Love

Phroggy's picture

"Love is a flame that burns everything other than itself. It is the destruction of all that is false and the fulfillment of all that is true....

True Love is far greater than anything that could be called personal. True Love is a non-personal miracle. It is the nature of reality itself. It is the natural and spontaneous expression of the undivided self......

Intuition of this degree of Love magnetically draws the individual toward it, and at the same time, causes fear to arise. This Love is seeking the dissolution of all separateness, all me-ness, all self concern.....

Love cares not for the me, it cares only for that which is true, undivided and whole.When the me dissolves, when it surrenders itself to a unity far greater than anything the mind can comprehend, that is Love.....

Non-personal Love is not a feeling, yet within it there can be, and there is, feeling and emotion. But the feeling and emotion are not derived from a personal me. The feeling and emotion are derived from the absence of a personal me.....

'There is profound responsibility in being Love,' ...more than the mind could imagine or hold up under. If most human beings truly realized the impact that they have on the whole, they'd be crushed by the realization of it."

— Adyashanti
"The Impact of Awakening"

Seeking is avoidance

Phroggy's picture

Inherent in the impulse to be free, is insecurity. The impulse to be free comes from outside the mind, and because of this, it makes the mind feel very insecure. Most spiritual seekers move away from this insecurity by seeking and striving for a distant spiritual goal. That's how they avoid feeling insecure. In an effort not to feel insecure, in an effort not to directly face the Unknown -which is where the impulse to be free originates - the ego create s a spiritual seeker as a means to avoid it.

— Adyashanti

Amphibian wisdom

Phroggy's picture

Humanity's genius is only fully realized in it's remarkable ability to avoid the obvious.

Theoretically, at least

Phroggy's picture

All effort at controlling thoughts, appetites and desires cannot but strengthen them along with the ego. Whatever has to go must fall off by itself. All that you are concerned with, all that you are, is the
impersonal functioning of understanding. So let that understanding work through witnessing without judgement, knowing that there is nothing else that you can do.

Meditation and all such methods and efforts are distractions from simply abiding in the natural state which is one's limitless, real being.
