A Quote by Ramana Maharshi on ramana maharshi and happy

If the mind is happy,
not only the body
but the whole world will be happy. 
So one must find out
how to become happy oneself. 
Wanting to transform the world
without discovering one's true self
is like trying to cover the whole world with leather
to avoid the pain of walking on stones and thorns. 
It is much simpler to wear shoes. 

Ramana Maharshi

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 julie sarah powell on divine, experience, freedom, projection, self, essence, no self, self realisation, bernadette roberts, and ramana maharshi

In essence all experiences can only be an unconscious projection from the Self or mindbody package, of the Divine. Not the Divine itself, simply triggered by touching on the Divine.


That which is through all experience cannot be affected by anything. It is only that, which is left when experience is gone.


Now there is no experiencer, nor any experience to be experienced.


Freedom itself.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on gratitude, moment, veil of the mind, no knower, no one, mind, new dimension, no self, self realisation, enlightenment, true nature, bernadette roberts, and ramana maharshi

It is as if every cell of the body is in complete harmony and each cell seems to be emanating gratitude, although it is just the naturally functioning senses and nothing more.

This is very difficult to describe to others because the mind immediately turns it into something else. It simply means seeing, feeling, tasting, touching, hearing everything as it is in this moment without the veil of the mind creating something over the top. Simple. This is all that is left when the mindbody package is gone.

There are no internal arisings, no knower, no being, and no experience, no-one left. The mind without a feeling centre is left powerless so remains quiet although still there, separate and unable to touch this. A whole new dimension, although everything appears the same.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on oneness, life, no self, mind, simple, down to earth, self realisation, true nature, bernadette roberts, and ramana maharshi

Seeing the oneness of life, and experiencing this with no Self in the way to distort it, is so very different to how the mind tries to project it. The mind literally has no idea how it truly is from an experiential perspective. Itis always so much more simple and down-to-earth than the mind could ever imagine or comprehend.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on no one, no self, self realization, true nature, divine, bernadette roberts, and ramana maharshi

The main things which I have been noticing are the things which have fallen away. It is almost shocking to see that there are no reactive ‘buttons'. This covers so much more than I could have possibly imagined. It means that whatever circumstances occur in life nothing can cause an internal waver or reaction of any kind. This goes for all aspects, both negative and positive. There are no upsetting/emotional or satisfaction/gratification reactions from any circumstances.


There is no-one here to look a certain way, come across a certain way or make any impression whatsoever.

There is no-one here at all.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on truth, self, true nature, no self, self-realization, spiritual, spirituality, meditation, spiritual tradition, spiritual master, bernadette roberts, and ramana maharshi

The truth is, you already are, it is finished.

It is absolutely and totally possible, and freely available, to step out of this limitation of the Self and rest as your true nature right now.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on spiritual, true, mind, prison of the mind, self, third eye, angles, gods, special, enlightenment, true nature, no self, self realisation, bernadette roberts, and ramana maharshi

You don't need to drift around in the 'oh so spiritual' clothes, don't need to use all of the 'oh so spiritual' Indian words, don't need to pretend to be 'oh so spiritual' because it is all a total crock. All just a red herring which is simply a trick of the Self that is distracting you from being true.


None of that has anything whatsoever to do with being true. It is all just talk and pretence only, and talk never truly saved anyone. Talk just brings more talk and never moves from the prison of the mind.


So there won't be any flashes of light shooting out of your third eye, no special energy pumping through the body and definitely no visits from the angels and gods to invite you into the special throne room which has been created just for you.


Sorry to fizzle out your mindful projections of what will occur when this 'spiritual enlightenment' descends on you.
Sorry to interrupt your version of the words of wisdom, which have been twisted into unrecognizable creations.
Sorry to cut short the claptrap.


Oh, okay not sorry.


It is all rubbish. You already are.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on true, realization, knowledge, mind, no self, self realisation, bernadette roberts, and ramana maharshi

True realization brings you to the point where you see that you don't know a thing. That you literally cannot know anything, because all knowledge is from the mind and is therefore garbage.
