me myself I

A Quote by julie sarah powell on self, me myself i, smoke and mirrors, planet, no self, self realisation, and true nature

The Self (me, myself, I) is a ghost, a phantom creation which is allsmoke and mirrors.
The unfortunate part is that we identify and fight with it, react and respond to it and treat it as if it
is a living breathing entity.

None of that changes the fact that it is all smoke and mirrors.

The planet is like a mad house with no nurses and far too much medication.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on sitting, peace, nothingness, surrender, oneness, god, divine, me myself i, desire, self-realisation, no self, and true nature


During the sitting, when the eyes closed the body relaxed and seemed to turn to warm liquid with all vestiges of the worries and anxiety of earlier oozing away and falling into a deep state of peace. After some while it felt as if I was looking into the abyss of nothingness. I felt the surrender and the possibility of dying was a natural next step. Give all of it up and drown in the Oneness of God. I knew that was all I had ever wanted. It was at that stage that all the build-up of the mindbody package that I knew to be "me/myself/I" seemed to slip off and was moved to the side, sort of floating to the left. Then the eyes opened and it was as if nothing had changed, yet with the feeling that everything had transformed irreversibly. Utterly unable to place what had actually happened, and with no desire to place it.

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.
