depth

A Quote by Andrew Cohen on meditation, enlightenment, surface, depth, liberation, relationship, chaos, nondual, absolute, and freedom

Under the right circumstances, it is not difficult to have a powerful experience of meditation, to taste the indescribable peace, bliss, rapture, and stillness of the Ground of Being-like a still forest pool, in which you sink ever more deeply, where your mind is not moving at all. It is very important to taste the inherent liberation of your own infinite depth, but that kind of experience in and of itself will not necessarily teach you how to have a liberated relationship to the chaos of your own mind and emotions. Sinking to the depths of your own self is always profoundly inspiring, but it's not enough. It is equally important to know how to stay on the surface when a storm is raging and have no relationship to the chaos. And that is what the deliberate practice of meditation is all about. For most of us, learning to do that is ultimately a source of greater confidence and soul strength than the spontaneous experience of infinite depth. And in fact, from an absolute or nondual perspective, being at the surface is no different from being at the very bottom of the pool. Even if it doesn't necessarily feel that way, in time you will come to understand that it is the same. That is the secret of freedom.

A Quote by Anne Hillman on anne hillman, the dancing animal woman, longing, being, be who you are, passionate, aliveness, love, yearning, real, depth, heart, authentic, and authenticity

I did not know I was on a search for passionate aliveness.  I only knew I was lonely and lost and that something was drawing me deeper beneath the surface of my life in search of meaning.  There is a hunger in people to go to those deep depths; to know that our lives are sacred; that our hearts are truly capable of love.  It is a yearning to be all the we can be.  A longing for what is real.
