beyond self

A Quote by Suzanne Segal on experiencing, physical senses, sensory, awareness, consciousness, witnessing, collision with the infinite, beyond self, no self, self realization, julie sarah powell, and bernadette roberts

 

Instead of experiencing through the physical senses, I was now bobbing behind the body like a buoy at sea, cut loose from sensory solidity, separated from and witnessing the body from a vast distance.

A Quote by Suzanne Segal on awareness, consciousness, force, collision with the infinite, beyond self, no self, self realization, julie sarah powell, and bernadette roberts

 

I lifted my right foot to step up into the bus and collided head on with an invisible force that entered my awareness like a silently exploding stick of dynamite blowing the door of my usual consciousness open and off its hinges, splitting me in two. In the gaping space that appeared, what I had previously called "me" was forcefully pushed out of its usual location inside me into a new location that was approximately a foot behind and to the left of my head. "I" was now behind my body, looking out at the world without using the body's eyes.

A Quote by Bernadette Roberts on beyond self, no self, nothing, no one, giving, holiness, christian, contemplative, spiritual, ramana maharshi, julie sarah powell, and suzanne segal

Once beyond the self, however, holiness is no longer possible, because now, there is nothing left to give and no-one left to do the giving.

A Quote by Bernadette Roberts on journey, nothing, acclimating, seeing, transition, revelation, no self, tried by fire, love, bliss, come to rest, trust, beyond, beyond self, union, and julie sarah powell

This journey then, is nothing more, yet nothing less than a period of acclimating to a new way of seeing, a time of transition and revelation as it gradually comes upon "that" which remains when there is no self. this is not a journey for those who expect love and bliss, rather, it is for the hardy who have been tried by fire and have come to rest in a tough, immovable trust in "that" which lies beyond the known, beyond the self, beyond union and even beyond love and trust itself

A Quote by Bernadette Roberts on self, no self, beyond self, still point, self realisation, christian, contemplative, journey, unitive, union with god, passageway, true nature, and julie sarah powell

 

......at this point the self has obviously outworn its function; it is no longer needed or useful, and life can go on without it. we are ready to move on, to go beyond the self, beyond even its most intimate union with God, and this is where we enter yet another new life- a life best categorized, perhaps, as a life without a self.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on true nature, now, eternal, divine, no self, beyond self, self realisation, and moment

The point of all this IS to stay here as our true nature. That is the goal, so to speak, of this eternal now moment.

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 Elysha on heart, existence, mindbody, moment, eyes, self realisation, beyond self, and true nature

The very heart of existence itself is what is looking out through the very eyes of this mindbody that you find yourself so intimately involved with. You think that you are this mindbody- it is what you are unconsciously trying to be from moment to moment...

A Quote by julie sarah powell on self, self realisation, beyond self, true nature, spiritual, and spiritual seeking

Regardless of the apparent depth to the Self, which we have created out of our spiritual seeking and the buiding up of the Self in this or any other way; it is an entirely shallow and superficial motion. not just shallow and superficial in its outward projection, although this is also true, but actually and only shallow and superficial.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on duality, momentary, nothing, divine, self, self realisation, beyond self, no self, true nature, mind, and me myself i

Duality:
We are always talking about two 'things', until there is only silence on a momentary basis. These two things are:-

a. The 'no-thing' which is our true nature or the Divine.

b. The 'some-thing' which is not.

The nothing we will call our true nature, because that is exactly what it is.

The something or mindbody package will be referred to as the Self. (This includes the conscious-self, unconscious-self, ego-self, feeling-self, true-self, knowing -self and all the rest of the ideas of the chattering mind.)

The self is also the entire package of the person which we know as me/myself/I.
