Hard Earth and Stone at my Foot

Are There More Fish in the Ocean on a Sunny Day, or on a Cloudy Day?

"The realm of possibility is infinite. There are endless conceivable and inconceivable realms of experience or embodiment that you could be involved in at the present time. But you are consciously involved only in this human one. You are involved in this human embodiment because you have desires"  

Humble One-Liners

"Life is suffering, and then there is God" - "That is one way of putting it, in your humble one-liner fashion."

Drugs and Entheogens

To take a drug does not yield any great capacity for recognition. Neither does conventional meditation or the shocks of life.

The Urge for Sanctuary - 1979

The best thing to do is to be uncomfortable...

"You cannot avoid that discomfort. It is essential to your conditional life. You must find it, locate it, and really use it."

Awakening and Lesser Stages of Life

"It is not that only those who are in the seventh stage are enlightened."

Fundamental Discipline of Love is to...

"Fundamental to the discipline of love is letting go. You are practicing attachment and using it as an excuse to immunize yourself. The discipline of love requires letting people go. I do not mean letting them disappear."

Realization if NOT about Union

"Realization is not about someone realizing union with someone, or with anything. If there is any effort along those lines, it has nothing to do with Realization. It is precisely this effort that must be understood and transcended."

"You should also understand that I am not here to fight with you for any cause whatsoever. Whatever you choose, you are completely free to choose, and that is all there is to that."

The Setting Sun - The Great Western Sun

Get Serious About Your Suffering

""You must get serious about your own suffering and the suffering of all other beings, and about the stupidity of all movements on Earth, whatever they are called - political, economic, religious. There is no siddhi in them, no blessing, no unique capability invested in the world."

 

Popular Meditation and Spirituality

True Sincerity

"True sincerity is a quality that is naturally alive in a person who understands himself."

True and Real Spirituality

"Spiritual cultures arising in this country have some feeling for a fuller life. They represent a sympathy with an aspect of the body-being that Western life has tended to exclude...the subjective or emotional aspect of the being"

Doubting Mind

Doubt is a very interesting mental activity. It can be helpful when judging a situation that may seem dubious but when it's chronic and pervasive it can be damaging.

What is Faith?

"When those who have lost faith in the exalted begin to suspect that things are not as they seem, they always assume that things must be worse than they seem, not better."

Conflicts - Battles and Wars

The First Truly Humanizing Stage of Development

"The first truly human or humanizing stage of development is to transcend our dissociative emotional reaction to the inherent limitations of the body-mind and its experiences."

The Key

"You must find out that even the whole, even the 'I' as the body is self-contraction. That's the first step. That's the great discovery."

What Arises

"In the Heart there is no adventure and no world, no one who thinks or acts, but there is only understanding. It is no place, no affect, no reflection, no exclusive force. It is perfect, unqualified existence, consciousness and bliss"

Work It Out

"Work out the matter of forgiveness and love expression with them. By doing this you purify yourself and all your present and relations, and you purify your parents as well."

 

Be Relieved of Your Seriousness

"We are under the incredibly absurd illusion that there is an objective world "outside" Consciousness and there is a 'me' inside this body"

Understanding and Our Primary Activity

"There two aspects appearing side by side in the Knee of Listening; the yogic or phenomenal aspects, and the teaching relative to understanding."

The Failure of Adaptation and Function Life

"The roots of human failure to adapt and master functional life are in the childhood of men and women."

The Future of Spiritual Practice

"Sadhana or spiritual practice begins in that place where you make this knot, the self contraction, this fundamental discomfort."

 

 

Yoga of Spiritual Practice

"The spiritual Way depends first of all on establishing the receptive and descended personality as a functional vehicle of the Living Reality. This is the principle of the first three stages of life."

Killing the Tiger

"Something in us wishes to remain a child, to be unconscious or, at most, conscious only of the ego; to reject everything strange, or else subject it to our will..."

Silence - "The best "term" of reference to Reality is perhaps silence, no-thought, no-indication, or no-action.

What the World Wants and Does Not Want

"In general, what the "world" wants - and, therefore, what "religious" institutions tend to provide - is social association and optimistic talk"

Offenses, Resistance and Outrage

""Most everyone will reach their cutoff point, the point where they will tend to stop, the point where practice tends to be sufficient for them or where further effort is too frustrating and too offensive. "

Sila/Equanimity

"As maturity develops over time, a positive equanimity begins to characterize the body-mind."

Seeds

"Seeds are dormant possibilities of life and action. In the life of a practitioner seeds are possibilities or potentials inherent in various disciplines. Without disciplines there are no possibilities"

What is Consciousness? - This is the basic question posed in The Knee of Listening.

Individuation as Politics - So the politics of individuation is, apart from some of its merits one might presume, basically the politics of egoity. And it glorifies egoity.

Where is Everybody Going? - The first great crisis of human existence is the observation of the tentative minimal, and always temporary association between life and Happiness.

The Primary Sensation _ In every moment when you are motivated to seek, the root of the motivation is a sensation. That root-sensation is the self-contraction.

Whatever you have not transcended you must fulfill, that is the law. - There is only one Truth, but there are two ways to realize it.

Establishing Firm Intimacy - If you are ever going to establish a firm intimacy with anyone, you must deal with all these emotions and become emotionally clarified.

Until You Realize - There is seemingly a 'paradox" or a 'contraction' to the Dharma in trying to understand it.

Nobody Has Ever Turned to the Guru - It is not so much that you turn to the Guru. The Guru turns to you. By the time you realize that you have turned, you have become nothing.

Locating the Source - To understand what Adi Da means when he uses the word 'locate' in conjunction with the references to Himself and/or Reality there can be said to be a 'process' in it's fuller comprehension.

Consumer Mentality - There is no cheap “super-truth” or “clever method” for “every man”.

What is Satsang? - There is a common understanding that spending time in the company of a Guru is Satsang, something like going to church.

Truth, Romance and Delusion - The true Spiritual process is not a kind process with which and to whom you can indulge in a romance!

Identifying with Consciousness
and Being Consciousness - Can you think or imagine your way to enlightenment? Can you seriously investigate the nature of reality and discovery its Truth (or falsehood)?

Transcendence - What does transcendence (n) or transcend (v) mean? Does transcendence or transcend mean to go beyond the limits of, to triumph, overcome or be prior to or be beyond and above something?
