A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on born, together, spaces, togetherness, winds, heaven, and dance

You were born together, and together you shall be for evermore....
but let there be spaces in your togetherness.
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

A Quote by Xia Neifion~Clark on reality, actuality, the one and many, heaven, earth, and existence

Powerful realities unfold when the ONE is combined with its polar extreme, the many.  The more Heaven and Earth marry, the more we can approach Higher Actualities of existence.

A Quote by Elysha on accountability, advaita, adyashanti, apocalypse, authenticity, awakening, awareness, beauty, behaviour, being, bible, biology, bliss, buddha, buddhism, catholic, cessation, changes, christ, christian, clarity, communication, concepts

As you learn to leave alone the activity of unconsciously trying to be the mindbody that you think that you are - the mindbody that this "you" is currently flowing through - and you learn to move as this one that you truly are - this "you" of you; the very heart of existence - steadily, consciously and momentarily, the continuity of the ever deepening of this innermost as it keeps on entering its manifestation, through this mindbody that you find yourself flowing through, allows you to simply bubble in the sheer joy, pleasure, peace, delightfulness and stillness that this "you" of you is.

A Quote by David R. Hawkins on self, god, heaven, and buddha

Q: Why the word "Self"?

A: The experience of the Presence is radically and profoundly subjective.  It is commonly presumed by the mind that God is 'elsewhere', namely, above, beyond, transcendent, in heaven, or somewhere back in history or in the future.  Traditionally, however, God is described as both transcendent and immanent.  The term "Self" emphasizes that God is discovered within as the ultimate reality that underlies one's actual existence in the 'here and now' (e.g., "Heaven is within you.").

The Buddha is said to have avoided using the term "God" because of the prevalence of misconceptions surrounding it.  He wanted to avoid all the limitations that that conceptualization confounds.  The Self as Awareness is often referred to in literature as Light.  As recounted in Genesis, the Unmanifest became Manifest first as Light, which was the radiance of the energy of God that took form as the universe.

The term "Self" also overcomes the dualistic notion that one is separated from God.  Historically, the picture that there is a sinner down here on Earth and there is a God up there somewhere in heaven is the viewpoint of the ego.  Thus, to most people, the term "God" implies "otherness."  However, there is no separation in the Allness of Creation, so it is impossible for the created to be separate from the Creator.  Enlightenment is therefore the revelation of the Self when the illusion of the reality of a separate self is removed.

The constant awareness of one's existence as 'I' is the ever present expression of the innate divinity of the Self.  This is a universal, constant experience that is purely subjective and of which no proof is possible or necessary.  The 'I' of the Self is the expression of Divinity as Awareness which is therefore beyond time and form.  The truth of this identity is obscured by the duality created by perception and disappears when all positionalities are relinquished.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on rumi, love, heaven, and angels

At every instant and from every side, resounds the call of Love:
We are going to sky, who wants to come with us?
We have gone to Heaven, we have been the friends of the angels,
And now we will go back there, for there is our country.
