(…) it is important to understand, not intellectually but actually in your daily life,
how you have built images about your wife, your husband, your neighbor,
your child, your country, your leaders, your politicians, your gods
–you have nothing but images.
The images create the space between you and what you observe and in that space
there is conflict, so what we are going to find out now together is whether
it is possible to be free of the space we create, not only outside ourselves
but in ourselves, the space which divides people
in all their relationships.
Now the very attention you give to a problem is the energy that solves that problem.
When you give your complete attention–I mean with everything in you–
there is no observer at all. There is only the state of attention which is total energy,
and that total energy is the highest form of intelligence. Naturally that state
of mind must be completely silent and that silence, that stillness,
comes when there is total attention, not disciplined stillness.
That total silence in which there is neither the observer nor the thing observed
is the highest form of a religious mind. But what takes place in that state
cannot be put into words because what is said in words is not the fact.
To find out for yourself you have to go through it.

Knowledge is Different in Different Levels of Consciousness
In most spiritual traditions, love is seen only as universal or cosmic love.
Our primary evidence, our only certainty is consciousness.
The emptiness of existence finds its expression in the flitting present as the only manner of real existence.
Love is the highest and most precious "asset" of human existence.
Love is the refusal to separate —Nisargadatta Maharaj
Why does our current era make some spiritual teachers and students susceptible to misinformation and cult-like thinking?
Life is allied with myth in order that we may advance along an evolutionary path

The yogic sages anticipated quantum physics by noting that a subtle vibrational energy is the substratum of everything we know.
Unveil the obstacles that block creativity and host them in a way...
When we avoid rooting in our dying bodies, spirituality grows spindly and bears no real fruit.
