The One

Mental activity is spontaneous and your True Nature is also spontaneous. Your form or your acting may differ from time to time, but you are not that which is seen, but the One who sees – That you are. – Nisargadatta Maharaj

Awe

It is one thing to get all the notes right; any number of unsocialized conservatory prodigies can do that. It is another to play the thoughts within the notes, the light around them, the darkness behind them, the silence at the end of the phrase. That is what inspires awe. -Alex Ross

Curiosity

Fear paralyzes; curiosity empowers. Be more interested than afraid. – Patricia Alexander, Book of Comforts

The Key

The mind must be opened like a door. The key is silence.   – The Law of One

Richness

Surely truth, or that Godhead of understanding, is not to be found by clinging either to family or tradition or habit. It is to be found only when you are compeltely naked, stripped of your longings, hopes, securities; and in that direct simplicity is the richness of life. – Krishnamurti

Perceive

To understand is to perceive patterns. – Isaiah Berlin

End of the Seeker

Now don’t think that awakening is the end. Awakening is the end of seeking, the end of the seeker, but it is the beginning of a life lived from your true nature. That’s a whole other discovery – life lived from oneness, embodying what you are, being a human expression of oneness. There is no question of you becoming the One; you are the One. The question is, are you a conscious expression of the One? Has the One awakened to itself? Have you remembered what you really are? And if you have, are you living it? Are you really living consciously as the One? – Adyashanti

Quest After Truth

In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth. – Mahatma Gandhi

Search for Truth

If you look closely you will see that your search is nothing but a search for comfort and security and escape; not a search for understanding, not a search for truth, but rather a search for an evasion and, therefore, a search for the conquering of all obstacles; after all, all conquering is but substitution, and in substitution there is no understanding. – Krishnamurti

Play of Life

Creation is the play of Life upon Itself through Divine Self-Imagination – Ernest Holmes

Treatment

Without Words

Music without words means leaving behind the mind. And leaving behind the mind is meditation. Meditation returns you to the source. And the source of all is sound. – Kabir

Greatest Good

Music, the greatest good that mortals know, And all of heaven we have here below. – Joseph Addison

Dare to Think

I’m not trying to counsel any of you to do anything really special except dare to think. And to dare to go with the truth. And to dare to really love completely. – R. Buckminster Fuller

The Seeker

The seeker is he who is in search of himself. – Nisargadatta Maharaj

Rhythm of Living

Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change – this is the rhythm of living. Out of our over-confidence, fear; out of our fear, clearer vision, fresh hope. And out of hope, progress. – Bruce Barton

Purity

Genuine

To be a warrior is to learn to be genuine in every moment of your life. – Chogyam Trungpa

World of Shamans

The internal dialogue is what grounds people in the daily world. The world is such and such or so and so, only because we talk to ourselves about its being such and such and so and so. The passageway into the world of shamans opens up after the warrior has learned to shut off his internal dialogue. – Carlos Castaneda

Extravagant Journey

Images of Light

We are the same, you and I. We are images of light. – Miguel Ruiz

Whatsoever you are doing, remember this is a dream. While eating, remember this is a dream. While walking, remember this is a dream. Let your mind continuously remember while you are awake that everything is a dream. -Osho

Repetition

There is nothing new under the sky. Everything is old and a repetition. And you will go on repeating for many, many lives. Beware of the repetition, beware of your boredom. Take a jump. – Buddha & Mahavira

The Whole

Man will be delivered from sin, sickness and trouble in exact proportion to his discovery of himself and his relationship to the Whole. – Ernest Holmes

Open to Truth

But the attitude of faith is to let go, and become open to truth, whatever it might turn out to be. – Alan Watts

Repose

If water derives lucidity from stillness, how much more the faculties of the mind! The mind of the sage, being in repose, becomes the mirror of the universe, the speculum of all creation. – Chuang Tzu
