non duality

A Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan on god, soul, and non duality

We are always searching for God afar off, when all the while He is nearer to us than our own soul.

A Quote by John Snelling on ego, suffering, duality, non duality, delusion, mind, i, and self

A primary cause of suffering is delusion: our inability, because of a subtly willful blindness, to see things the way they truly are but instead in a distorted way. The world is in fact a seamless and dynamic unity: a single living organism that is constantly undergoing change. our minds, however, chop it up into separate, static bits and pieces, which we then try mentally and physically to manipulate. One of the mind's most dear creations is the idea of the person and, closest to home, of a very special person which each one of us calls "I": a separate, enduring ego or self. In a moment, then, the seamless universe is cut in two. There is "I" -- and there is all the rest. That means conflict -- and pain, for "I" cannot control that fathomless vastness against which it is set. It will try, of course, as a flea might pit itself against an elephant, but it is a vain enterprise.

A Quote by nisargadatta on advaita and non duality

When I know I am nothing; that is wisdom
When I know I am everything; that is love
My life moves between the two.

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj on advaita and non duality

Wherever it leads you, it will be a dream. The very idea of going beyond the dream is illusory. Why go anywhere? Just realize that you are dreaming a dream you call the world, and stop looking for ways out. The dream is not your problem. Your problem is that you like one part of the dream and not another. When you have seen the dream as a dream, you have done all that needs be done.

A Quote by Vimala Thakar on advaita and non duality

"Nothing in life is trivial. Life is whole wherever and whenever we touch it, and one moment or event is not less sacred than another."

A Quote by Ramesh Balsekar on advaita and non duality

"Self-Realization or Enlightenment is nothing more than the deepest possible understanding that there is no individual doer of any action - neither you nor anyone else. Also you are not the thinker of any thoughts, nor the experiencer of any experiences - they happen. When IT happens, no bright lights are likely to flash in your head!"

A Quote by Catherine Ingram on advaita and non duality

"Thoughts are not necessarily a distraction. Nor is the body. Thoughts are arising in this present awareness and dissolving back into it. The silence remains untouched, unstained, immaculate. Thoughts are only a problem if you are preoccupied with them, giving them all your attention, believing in the entity of "me" around which the thoughts swirl. But thoughts in and of themselves are not some kind of enemy. Thoughts can be very useful, functional, and even entertaining. They are allowed in this vast clearing. No problem"
