MAI's quotes

An indivisible symphony

MAI's picture



There are may arise a profound shift in perspective where it is realized beyond a doubt
always
There are there are no separate things Nor separate moments
Nor any separate person apart from this seamless stream

All there is is in uninterrupted indivisible symphony of perception and the simultaneous inseparable recognition of it

— Nancy Neithercut



Awakening

MAI's picture



After the shift it is known without a doubt that there are no separate things and no one to know or not know them...

This shift in perspective is called awakening.

— Nancy Neithercut



That is the jewel

MAI's picture



You and I are right now are awareness aware that it is aware through the shared objectification of perceptual input. That is the jewel.
The idea that there is such a thing as "pure awareness" will sometimes keep a mind searching until the brain dies.

— Michael Markham



Awareness and Perception

MAI's picture



Mind is the streaming internal dialogue on the surface and the sublime quiescence in the centre
There is nothing you can do to become more of what you already are.

— Michael Markham



It is the thinking that you could be more or better

MAI's picture



The belief that there is a God and a God Consciousness that you can attain sometime in the future through your own efforts will keep you hooked and becomes what defines you.
And all the time you are searching for one of your own ideas, it seldom dawns that you....just as you are......right now......are the crystalline aperture through which the wonder of the universe streams.

— Michael Markham



It's all prison, kid.....

MAI's picture



Enlightenment is not leaving or transcending the dream of separation.
It is merely seeing it as a dream.

— Michael Markham



What the hell is going on.....

MAI's picture



Most spend their short time in manifestation groping through a conceptual quagmire searching for that which provides either immediate or delayed gratification and avoiding those experiences that are unpleasurable or not conducive to survival.
Only a few will stop long enough to look around and wonder what the hell is going on.

— Michael Markham



Conceptualization...

MAI's picture



We cannot replace what we think we are with what we imagine we could be.

— Michael Markham



Balance

MAI's picture



That either or mentality is what makes us say I'm right, you're wrong....not that you can't have preferences....and the moment you recognise that.......you say....whoa...whoa...whoa....that's human !
And that allows other people to believe what they believe....without judging them...
And that's such a beautiful place to be...
And you feel ....love.....
That's beneath all of that....

— Suzanne Giesemann
From a Buddha At The Gas Pump, Interview



Awareness....

MAI's picture



The mind is like a river, flowing ceaselessly in the bed of the body; you identify yourself with some particular ripple and call it "my thought". All you are conscious of is your mind.
Awareness is the cognizance of consciousness as a whole.

— Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
