This blog is only about awakening, nothing more, nothing less. Anything that will contribute to the possibility of complete liberation from the dream, or from the mass hallucination of humanity, or from the mental matrix, or from the false self, or from the lie, or any other label you want to call it, is welcome here. The key words are FREEDOM and JOY. Sometimes I think this just keeps the story going and only adds to the insanity, and there's too much of that already. But something is trying to pry the lid off still, something awaits to be seen. We are all in this boat together, so here we go......have fun!

Be Yourself.

"Be yourself, everyone else is already taken."

~ Oscar Wilde

When anybody laughs, he has no mind, no thought, no problem, no suffering.

You impose limits on your true nature of infinite being. Then you get displeased to be only a limited creature. Then you begin spiritual practices to transcend these non-existing limits. But if your practice itself implies the existence of these limits, how could they allow you to transcend them.

~ Ramana Maharshi

To complain is always nonacceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness.

~ Eckhart Tolle

"Who cares if you're enlightened forever? Can you just get it in this moment, now?"

~ Byron Katie

Be still. It takes no effort to be still; it is utterly simple. When your mind is still, you have no name, you have no past, you have no relationships, you have no country, you have no spiritual attainment, you have no lack of spiritual attainment. There is just the presence of beingness with itself.

~ Gangaji

For a day,
Just for one day,
Talk about that
Which disturbs no one...
And bring some peace
Into your beautiful eyes.

~ Hafiz

There is no profound knowledge. There are no good words. Everything you've been told is a lie. The only truth that exists is your self, but who is the self? The self is you, just the way you are. The mistake most people make is they want to change themselves. How can you change yourself? You think you've got problems, or you think you've got a bad mind, or you think something is wrong and you want to change that. Those things don't exist. There is nothing to change. That's what I mean when I say, "Be yourself, just the way you are." Yourself, just the way you are, spontaneous, live in the now, has no time to worry or think. When you are yourself you are God, you are consciousness, you are absolute reality. You are always yourself. You never were anyone else. You never were anything else. Your nature is divine. You are not what you appear to be. The only thing to remove is the appearance, or the belief in the appearance, for the appearance is false.

~ Robert Adams

Nothing is born, nothing is destroyed.
Away with your dualism, your likes and dislikes.
Every single thing is just the One Mind.
When you have perceived this,
you will have mounted the Chariot of the Buddhas.

~ Huang Po

"I can walk on the clouds!" says a child.
But if she reached the clouds,
she would find nowhere to place her foot.
Likewise, if one does not examine thoughts,
they present a solid appearance;
but if one examines them,
there is nothing there.
That is what is called
being at the same time
empty and apparent.
Emptiness of mind
is not a nothingness,
nor a state of torpor,
for it possesses by its very nature
a luminous faculty of knowledge
which is called Awareness.
These two aspects,
emptiness and Awareness,
cannot be separated.
They are essentially one,
like the surface of the mirror
and the image which is reflected in it."

~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
