Hi folks!

After some time I'd like to share again some short lines with you - the ones, which were most useful to me. May they be same helpful to you as they have been to me! (Correct English?! Hope you don't "mind" :wink:)



There's nothing wrong about stories - but you aren't a story!
Play your part - but a good actor knows he isn't what he's performing!

The mind is in the world - but you aren't. You are before the world!

Thoughts are empty.

Desire nothing - your true nature doesn't lack anything.
Resist nothing - what's real can't die.

Before you are anything, you are silence.

There's no use in peace.

There's nothing personal about your ego/conditioning - nobody has created it. If "you" (the ego) blames itself for itself, "you" think "you" have created "yourself". Can anything create itself?
"Your mind, too, is a part of nature." Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Being a human is suffering
Being what you are, before you are a human, is bliss
"Your suffering is due to your belief that you have been born into the world." Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

You aren't anything inside the picture. You are before the picture!



I like them because they are so short. No heavy luggage for the mind.

Hope you don't "mind" ;)

A good list asta. Awakening lies in the perception of each message without reference to, or cognizance of, the words that pointed it out. Be clear and see.
