This is a matter for strong people. People who do not discern what is being asked give replies depending on what comes up. They do not know it is something you ask yourself — to whom would you answer? When people do not understand an answer, they produce views based on words. They do not know it is something you answer for yourself — what truth have you found, and where does it lead? Therefore it is said, ‘It’s all you.’ Look! Look!
“The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. The soul has to proceed by unknowing rather than knowing.”
~St. John of the Cross
Time moves… I am Still.
The Mind moves… I am Still.
The body moves… I am Still.
She dies… I am Still.
He dies… I am Still.
I die… I am Still.
Still… I AM.
“O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring;
Of the endless trains of the faithless—of cities fill’d with the foolish;
Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?)
Of eyes that vainly crave the light—of the objects mean—of the struggle ever renew’d;
Of the poor results of all—of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me;
Of the empty and useless years of the rest—with the rest me intertwined;
The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life?
That you are here—that life exists, and identity;
That the powerful play goes on, and you will contribute a verse.”
“The true meaning of the word repent is to admit. Whenever a craving or a desire arises, simply admit to yourself what you are craving or desiring in as much graphic detail as necessary. As this occurs, you defuse the energy within such cravings and desires, purifying the energy field of life-long patterns of desperation. The actual meaning of repent your sins is admitting what choices or actions only lead to further desperation, to crave and desire what never frees you from endless desires and personal cravings. Simply by consciously admitting to yourself whatever arises, you are freed from the need to choose or act upon it. This allows you to use every want, need, or desire as a means of liberating yourself from all forms of desperation. In doing so, the kingdom of heaven reveals itself as the openness and purity of your own divine heart space.”
“Life is not a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be lived.”
