realization

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on eckhart tolle, power of now, being, love, communion, oneness, realization, and relationships

When listening to another person, don't just listen with your mind, listen with your whole body. Feel the energy field of your inner body as you listen.That takes attention away from thinking and creates a still space that enables you to truly listen without the mind interfering. You are giving the other person space - space to be. It is the most precious gift you can give. Most people don't know how to listen because the major part of listening is taken up by thinking. They pay more attention to that than what the other person is saying, and none at all to what really matters: the Being of the other person underneath the words and the mind. Of course you cannot feel someone else's Being except through your own. This is the beginning of the realization of oneness, which is love. At the deepest level of Being, you are one with all that.

Most human relationships consist mainly of minds interacting with each other, not of human beings communicating, being in communion. No relationship can thrive in that way, and that is why there is so much conflict in relationships. When the mind is running your life, conflict, strife, and problems are inevitable. Being in touch with your inner body creates a clear space of no-mind within which the relationship can flower.

A Quote by unknown on eternity, release, spiritual, material, internal, external, realization, enoch, chad christopher cobb, sea of milk, commercial, marketing, strategic, meaning, purpose, world, words, listen, knowledge, and wisdom

Eternity waits for your release. It dawned on Enoch that all signs, all advertisements, with all their strategic marketing phrases, still had a beauty that came before and beyond the madness of taking the power of the words and using it to sell some product, some thing. The words may have been selling something, but they were still beautiful words that spoke some other truth. Enoch felt his heart quicken its pace at the understanding, the fresh insight, realizing that he could learn from that commercial world that had always scared his soul. The world was alive and speaking out to those who would listen, and it spoke spiritual even in its containment of the external...

A Quote by Ken Wilber on ken wilber, one taste, satori, awakening, realization, mind, and just this

Early morning, the orange sun is slowly rising, shining forth in empty luminous clarity. The mind and the sky are one, the sun is rising in the vast space of primordial awareness, and there is just this. Yasutani Roshi once said, speaking of satori, that it was the most precious realization in the world, because all the great philosophers had tried to understand ultimate reality but had failed to do so, yet with satori or awakening all of your deepest questions are finally answered: it's just this.

A Quote by Daniel Odier on desire, ego, mahamudra, and realization

Desire, liberated from its ties to the ego, realizes that it has no other aspiration than the fullness of Mahamudra and, as it sees in the same impulse that this plenitude is innate and limitless, it no longer aspires to any realization whatsoever.  There is no longer anything but intimate vibration, continuous sacred tremoring, and the absence of localization in time and space.

A Quote by Werner Erhard on problems, communities, societies, resolved, brought together, together, common sense, visionary, realization, function, live, vision, great leader, level, following, great, leader, era, and ourselves

The problems we have now in communities and societies are going to be resolved only when we are brought together by a common sense that each of us is a visionary.  Each of us must come to the realization that we can function and live at the level of vision rather than following some great leader's vision.  Instead of looking for a great leader, we are in an era where each of us needs to find the great leader in ourselves.

Love and the self are one and the discovery of either is the realization of both.

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on god, conversations, creative process, life, journey of discovery, discovery, school of learning, discovering yourself, recreating yourself, want to be, reality, create reality, creation, manifestation, realization, minut

Life is a creative process, not a journey of discovery or a school of learning. You're not discovering yourself, but recreating yourself. So don't try and figure out who you are, but establish who you want to be. You create your reality every minute, probably without realizing it. You can be, do, and have whatever you can imagine. Didn't I say you were gods?

A Quote by Russell Targ on realization, teacher, guru, awakening, enlightenment, grace, serendipity, and transmission

When I write about "realizations," I am describing a state in which a practitioner has wisdom of who she or he is, and has embodied that wisdom; it has become integrated into daily life, thoughts, and activities. We often view "awakening" as first step towards such realization. Awakening can occur in the blink of an eye, frequently through the direct, heart-opening (heart-breaking) transmission of grace from an awakened teacher.

A Quote by Martha Nibley Beck on joy, love, north star, life, purpose, relationship, journey, potential, business, happiness, realization, friends, opportunities, essence, meaning, and purpose

Connecting with the people who are meant to be part of your own North Star is much more important than any aspect of business. It's the essence of happiness, the full realization of your potential for joy.

By the end of your incredibly arduous, disappointing, stressful journey, you will be your true self, in a place where you belong, with friends who truly understand you and bring all sorts of opportunities your way.

Every aspect of your life, whether it's a task or relationship, personal or professional, will be based on love and joy. And when you get right down to it, nothing else really matters.

A Quote by Dennis Genpo "Roshi" Merzel on acceptance, truth, and realization

To accept the truth of who you really are takes nothing short of realization.  You have to see the diamond for yourself.
