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 Kalu Rinpoche on illusion, buddhism, reality, and emptiness

We live in illusion and the appearance of things. There is a reality. We are that reality. When we understand this, we see that we are nothing. And being nothing, we are everything. That is all.

Kalu Rinpoche

A Quote by Diana Grace Butler on visualize, realize, illusion, and real eyes

that the PROFUSION
is a result of the DELUSION
We must Visualize
and not use what we call our REAL EYES
Because what we VISUALIZE
we can REALIZE

This phantom world gave you false signs
But you turned from the illusion

A Quote by James Swartz on deep sleep, maya, vasanas, dream, and illusion

  " When one wakes up in the morning, one's whole life is neatly laid out, consistent with the past, to the degree that we even (apparently) remember the same language spoken the day before, suggesting previous experience had simply entered a dormant state."
