self realisation

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 smoke and mirrors, loving, suffering, stop the fight, eternal, now moment, moment, now, self realisation, and no self

You are, you always have been and you will always be in this same place whether you are aware of it or not.

This place is this eternal now moment. Not as an idea of now, but simply right now.

You find when you stop fighting life that naturally relaxation, openness, loved and loving is all there is. Naturally.

You need to stop the fight. Stop creating that smoke. Only then can life flow without the confusion, frustration and suffering that it appears to be so full of.

A Quote by Bernadette Roberts on self, no self, still point, self realisation, christian, contemplative, journey, passageway, true nature, and julie sarah powell

...a point is reached where the self is so completely aligned with the still-point that it can no longer be moved, even in its first movements, from this center. It can no longer be tested by any force or trial, nor moved by the winds of change, and at this point the self has obviously outworn its function; it is no longer needed or useful, and life can go on without it.

......at this point the self has obviously outworn its function; it is no longer needed or useful, and life can go on without it. we are ready to move on, to go beyond the self, beyond even its most intimate union with God, and this is where we enter yet another new life- a life best categorized, perhaps, as a life without a self.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on elysha, mindbody, mind, self, no self, self realisation, revealation, joy, true nature, and divine

Elysha was talking about the mindbody package, and suddenly it struck. That was it. The penny dropped with a clunk. That is what had been missing from the picture over the past weeks. The mindbody package was gone. The Self was gone. There were no internal arisings, no emotions, and no feelings of the package of who I thought I was, which felt like it was just the tip of the iceberg with loads more under the surface. Nothing.

With this revelation the feeling in my chest lit up like a fire and felt as though it was burning and shining like a great beacon of joy. I saw that the Self is dead, in a clear momentary flash. A huge smile suddenly burst out. Joy was breaking through and there was no containing it.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on moment, abyss, paradigm, perspective, no self, self realisation, enlightenment, spirituality, and meditation

The day to day chores and mechanical flow of life all continued as before, but with no energy going into them. Pushing through in some moments and melting into the abyss in others, no choice in any of it. During sittings it was felt that the body and all of existence was melting and would never return again. When the end of the session came and the responsibilities of life started up again the moves would occur and life would go on as usual.

Internally, however, was a whole new paradigm. The perspective had shifted to a whole new sense. The mind was still functioning, but restricted to a strictly practical level. Not a constant burble and with no energy to touch this place. Like a waterfall in slow motion, which defies gravity and seems to float quietly past making no ripple within itself and touching nothing. Only spontaneously emerging when needed and then fading away again.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on bliss, joy, forever, moment, eternal now moment, self realisation, no self, and true nature

There are no feelings of bliss or joy or any describable feelings at all really, only a sense of forever, filling this moment. Not as a time, forever, or a motion outward to some place, forever, but the eternal now moment as it is. Simple. Like floating in a small room which has many doors and they are all locked shut. Almost sterile. Untouchable.

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 insight, true insight, moment, spiritual, no self, self realisation, shift in perspective, self, and awakening

A true insight occurs in a moment, a split second, and it brings a subtle shift in your perspective. The 'experience' which surrounds the insight is generally entirely superfluous and is merely the Self or mindbody package attempting to own and understand the insight.

A Quote by Elysha on mind, mind informancy, giver, moment, spirituality, and self realisation

If yours is to settle for the familiarity of your mind informancy on a moment by moment basis, then yours will be to continue on in the same manner that you are already doing - even should you find something better. The mind informancy drive is not a giver, it is a taker.
