A Quote by Wendell Berry on values, waste, usefulness, nothing, exist, country, natural resources, metamorphosis, bounty, land, junk, garbage, silt, poison, economy, farm, home, loyalty, devotion, humans, unborn, disinvestment, unemployed, homeland, sour

But when nothing is valued for what it is, everything is destined to be wasted. Once the values of things refer only to their future usefulness, then an infinite withdrawal of value from the living present has begun. Nothing (and nobody) can then exist that is not theoretically replaceable by something (or somebody) more valuable. The country that we (or some of us) had thought to make our home becomes instead 'a nation rich in natural resources'; the good bounty of the land begins its mechanical metamorphosis into junk, garbage, silt, poison, and other forms of 'waste.' "The inevitable result of such an economy is that no farm or any other usable property can safely be regarded by anyone as a home, no home is ultimately worthy of our loyalty, nothing is ultimately worth doing, and no place or task or person is worth a lifetime's devotion. 'Waste,' in such an economy, must eventually include several categories of humans--the unborn, the old, 'disinvested' farmers, the unemployed, the 'unemployable.' Indeed, once our homeland, our source, is regarded as a resource, we are all sliding downward toward the ashheap or the dump.

Wendell Berry (1934 -)

A warm breeze blew through my window like a gentle wave lapping the sandy shore in summer at low tide, and as I took in a breath of air that blanketed my body like tall grass in a field I felt for just that moment in time, like I did when I was a child. I felt that I had not one worry, not one burden, nothing was on my mind accept that breeze that made the curtains swell like balloons.

Since everything you do is something, it's impossible to be doing nothing.

A Quote by Bernadette Roberts on beyond self, no self, nothing, no one, giving, holiness, christian, contemplative, spiritual, ramana maharshi, julie sarah powell, and suzanne segal

Once beyond the self, however, holiness is no longer possible, because now, there is nothing left to give and no-one left to do the giving.

A Quote by Bernadette Roberts on inward, centre, myself, nothing, empty, seeing, joy, self, no self, self-realization, and julie sarah powell

But coming home that day, walking downhill with a panorama of valley and hills before me, I turned my gaze inward, and what I saw, stopped me in my tracks. Instead of the usual unlocalized centre of myself, there was nothing there, it was empty, and at the moment of seeing this there was a flood of quiet joy and I knew, finally I knew what was missing-it was my "self".

A Quote by Bernadette Roberts on journey, nothing, acclimating, seeing, transition, revelation, no self, tried by fire, love, bliss, come to rest, trust, beyond, beyond self, union, and julie sarah powell

This journey then, is nothing more, yet nothing less than a period of acclimating to a new way of seeing, a time of transition and revelation as it gradually comes upon "that" which remains when there is no self. this is not a journey for those who expect love and bliss, rather, it is for the hardy who have been tried by fire and have come to rest in a tough, immovable trust in "that" which lies beyond the known, beyond the self, beyond union and even beyond love and trust itself

A Quote by julie sarah powell on moment, nothing, mind, self realisation, no one, no self, true nature, enlightenment, and divine

There is the feeling of being finished. The end. The attention is held right here, in the body, in the moment, with no-one and no-thing. The depth of feeling and connection at the eyes when open and closed is no longer here. There is no internal centre. There is no feeling at all other than the senses operating. It is as if all of the doors to the mind have been shut. Nothing scary, nothing monstrous, just nothing here.

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

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.
