A Quote by Adi Da Samraj on realization and awakening

Reality Itself is a Revelation of What Is.  It is inherently egoless and of a Transcendental Spiritual Nature.  It can be given directly, but it cannot be achieved as a result of any effort whatsoever.  It can only be Directly Revealed, and thereupon Realized.  No answers to your questions, no techniques that could be Spoken or practiced by you are relevant to this Realization.  Realization is simply about Awakening to That Which Is Always Already the Case As It Is--not ideas about It, not to a practice of inverting on It somehow--just As It Is now.  This is counter to every egoic impulse--not what 'you' are about--but senior to them.  Your 'self' as currently identified is the only obstruction to this Realization, which is much more than mental recognition.  To dream without fear--that is the Attraction fully surrendered to.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on insight, true insight, moment, spiritual, no self, self realisation, shift in perspective, self, and awakening

A true insight occurs in a moment, a split second, and it brings a subtle shift in your perspective. The 'experience' which surrounds the insight is generally entirely superfluous and is merely the Self or mindbody package attempting to own and understand the insight.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on oneness, awakened, insight, arising, divine, consciousness, self, mindbody, freedom, mind, suffering, awakening, spiritual, and spirituality

In the Oneness / Awakened state the insights and experience of all arising in and as the Divine, and the Divine being everywhere and everything (beyond consciousness, the Self, and the mindbody package) has been obvious. This has been consistently tested by life and the obviousness, and the freedom which this brings, fluctuated accordingly.

Despite the freedom of the Oneness state I was aware that the mind was still going, I was still buying into it and really when I felt into it I was still suffering in a way that I thought would have finished many years before. There felt to be lots of changes but essentially I was still the same mess that I had always been, albeit with a more mature stance and view of things.

A Quote by Elysha on simplicity, mind informancy, mind, awakening, natural man, true nature, divine, beyond self, and no self

It is all so very simple but this simplicity will not be seen via your familiar vision of looking at everything via the running commentary of your mind informancy. Awakening to the state of the natural man will only come about through you consciously choosing to move from this, that already is - and this you are very capable of.

A Quote by jack Kornfield on jack kornfield, awakening, liberation, clinging, aversion, craving, spirit, and enlightenment

In spiritual life there is no room for compromise. Awakening is not negotiable; we cannot bargain to hold on to things that please us while relinquishing things that do not matter to us. A lukewarm yearning for awakening is not enough to sustain us through the difficulties involved in letting go. It is important to understand that anything that can be lost was never truly ours, anything that we deeply cling to only imprisons us.

A Quote by Robin on beauty, awakening, abundance, change, women, body, issues, path, journey, awaken, genuine, authenticity, create, save, world, inner, transformation, shapeshifting, and healing

For most women, beauty and body issues are the easiest path to awakening, because the pain is so very close to the surface and the inner critic’s voice is the easiest to hear. The beauty of awakening is getting this, down to your bones, so that the world no longer needs to play our internal dramas on the backdrop of life. We can watch the drama as it comes and goes, maybe making a genuine wise crack, or just laughing at our own antics.

We stop looking to manifest abundance; we are abundance. Even without a job. Even when you give away the majority of what you create. Even when there is no one but ourselves standing at the finish line to thank us for doing out part to help save the world.

A Quote by Robert Augustus Masters on ego, mortality, self-transcendence, and awakening

The sense of being somebody special (a legend in our own mind!) helps immunize “I” against the bare facticity of its own mortality, here-and-now instability, and innate insubstantialness.

Even when “I” dreams of transcending itself - as in those programs that have (or advertise) as their central agenda the eradication of ego - it is still an “I” who has now achieved the incomparable goal of self-transcendence! “Look, Ma, no ego!” we announce as we unicycle past our rapt inner audience, too proud to notice our pride, forgetting that self-conceit persists well into advanced transpersonal stages of development.

In our craving to be somebody special - and don't forget that we may find our specialness through being “nobody” - we bypass exploration of that very craving, committing far more of our passion to fulfilling our dreams than to actually awakening from them.
