Effortless Stillness


True stillness comes without effort as if by grace. Stillness, quiet, and meditation experienced everyday, lead to a good life. I go to my meditation spot at home - resolved to sit for eleven minutes and come to stillness. I sit and breathe. After five minutes or more the mind is suddenly quiet without effort. It seemed easy - perhaps because of forty years of meditation experience. It still surprises me, when the quiet comes easily and steady like a slow flowing river. So, please, wherever you are now: sit or stand in stillness. Eventually reality opens up. Be still now and surrender to being alive.

Options

Looking at ourself from a distance cultivates space for a new experience. Consciously make a choice of what experience it will be and keep your power; dabble in darkness or bathe in light.

Chief Seattle ~ All things share the same breath



"All things share the same breath -
the beast, the tree, the man, 
the air shares its spirit with all
the life it supports."

Excess Mobility


Excess mobility is the disease of the modern world. Here we are, Facebook users scattered in too many places often longing and missing each other. Systems like Facebook attempt to re-link us by providing virtual substitutes via the Internet. All this is a misuse of Internet technology. The Internet industry wants us physically separated and utterly mobile; but, at high cost to local community and real day to day family and community life. The radical thing now is to "go back" to being near each other and limiting travel. Less fuel burned up, less global warming gases, less sleepless time in clogged airports.

Eckhart Tolle - All One



You are the universe,
expressing itself as a human
for a little while.

All That IS


Consciousness is unbounded, 
free standing, and eternal. 
The Creator is a scientist, 
experimenting with possibilities; 
generating universes 
throughout an unbounded cosmos; 
beyond the limits of individual ego. 
The ancients would say: 
Om tat sat (All that is).

Proofs


When two hearts intersect, a point is created. It can be designated as any number on a line but nevertheless, they have left a point of themselves behind. They might begin to run parallel one day, but it’s all right, they made an infinite possibility for new lines to begin.

Being, Doing, Having, and Giving


Awareness of being, doing, having and giving transforms life. Discover being - and all else follows. Being is the ground of all that is. We reflect being within ourselves. Doing follows naturally once being is established in our minds, hearts, and bodies. In that doing, comes our having, and the capacity for giving. The path back to being is in our capacity for discovering and sustaining stillness within, even while "in the world".
