More of a story than a quotable quote -- but still worth sharing :) One day a farmer’s donkey fell down a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally he decided that the animal was old and since the well was non-functional anyway, it wasn’t worth ...

The Silent Core

The Silent Core: http://4silence.net In my opinion the silent core is a place where individuals of awareness come together with people within the business world of today. Working together the core provides them with an outlet to reach out to others around the globe. If you happen to join the Core, b...

A simular conversation has taken place in another location I belong to. Much of what has been shared here has also been shared there. The following is a quote from that place on the subject. Words Knowledge Experience Wisdom Understanding Teaching Learning Sharing Why do we feel so inclined to diff...

C'mon my friends, let's come down from the exalted altar for just a moment, and salute God's creation, the ego!

"Every word, every image used for God is a distortion more than a description." "Then how does one speak of God?" "Through Silence." "Why, then, do you speak in words?" At that the Master laughed uproariously. He said, "When I speak, you mustn't listen to the words, my dear. Listen to the Silence."...

Said a traveler to one of the disciples, "I have traveled a great distance to listen to the Master, but I find his words quite ordinary." "Don't listen to his words. Listen to his message." "How does one do that?" "Take hold of a sentence that he says. Shake it well till all the words drop off. Wha...

I'm sorry guys, but I can't help you anymore. Must be nice :P 've laid the truth at your feet, presented it on a red carpet for you and all you want to do is take it apart and see how it ticks. Nope - no ego there, none what so ever :P As ET says "the analysis of pointers is pointless". If this is ...

Nobody really answered the question about déjà vu ? Déjà vu? How about this answer – there is no answer. The only answer is what you already know. Yet do you really know it? Now I realize that what I just shared may be confusing, but I do not wish that to be the case. So look at it in this point of...

To me that would be encouraging the mind to analyze, to think and that is the opposite of what I am trying to express here. Is that not what you just did? It is not about who is right or who is wrong. Right or wrong are irrelevant, except to the ego of-course. It is simply about sharing, and prefer...

Why do I forget how magical life can be? Sigh. Perhaps the (( I )) has forgotten, but if You had truly forgotten, would you be making mention of it? Always remember, the Beauty and magic you see in all things or people around you, be nothing more than a reflection of your true self. Once your aware...

Life has its own way of flowing like a river This line brought to mind thoughts and images of a native sister. Her name is Sialanna. Which means, Tears In The River. Often thinking of the name, especially during moments of awareness, brings about certain thoughts. The "Tears" we shed for others. Th...

Let me answer your question with another question. How can you lose what You are? Once you know yourself to be the Now, there's no losing it. True. Once the process has begun, there is certainly no turning back. Once the Now is realized, it be in-deed impossible to ignore. Yes, there will be times ...

Relationships with others is a hot button for me when it comes to my pain body and/or knee jerk reactions. This applies for many of us. The answer lies in observing and responding, as apposed to reacting. How do you handle topics that come up with others that are so far flung from your current worl...

Try looking at it this way; When you wish to quote or refer to awareness or the power of now and being present, you may make reference to Eckhart or his words, simply because he is one of the most "Aware" individuals you know of. This is perhaps all that Eckhart is doing when he quotes Jesus. Do no...
