A Quote by Daniel Odier on tantra, meditation, consciousness, and altered states

You don’t meditate to experiment with altered states of consciousness or whatever else. You meditate only to perceive by yourself that everything is within us, every atom of the universe, and that we already possess everything we would wish to find outside of ourselves.

A Quote by Osho on love, tantra, surrender, meditation, kiss, and touch

“Become loving.  When you are in the embrace, become the embrace.  Become the kiss.  Forget yourself so totally that you can say, “I am no more.  Only love exists.”  Then the heart is not beating, but love is beating.  Then the blood is not circulating, but love is circulating.  Then eyes are not seeing, love is seeing.  Then hands are not moving to touch, love is moving to touch.  Become love and enter everlasting life.  Love suddenly changes your dimension.  You are thrown out of time and you are facing eternity.  Love can become a deep meditation, the deepest possible.  Lovers have known sometimes what saints have not known.”                                              -OSHO

A Quote by Machig Labdron on friend, demons, healing, chod, tantra, transformation, and compassion


    With a loving mind, cherish more than a child
    The hostile gods and demons of apparent existence,

        And tenderly surround yourself with them.

    Nourish them always with warm flesh and blood.
    With the hook of love and compassion,
             Befriend them and never dismiss them.
    
    If, with pure noble thought and enlightened resolve,
    You connect them to the sacred Dharma
    And they are freed and established in happiness,
    Then you, child, whoever you are,
    Will be my inseparable friend.

A Quote by Daniel Odier on tantra, action, thought, and transmission

There is only one way to receive transmission. When I tell you something, do it immediately, without the least wavering thought. That’s it. Learn. Open your heart and act. Thought stops action. It perverts it into calculated gesture stripped of grace and efficiency.

A Quote by Daniel Odier on tantra and divine

No act loses us; no violence we’re subjected to destroys us; no debasement chases out the divine, and no one can take the divine from us. We can have access to it at any time by breathing the intimate perfume of the woman, the perfume of the world.

A Quote by Daniel Odier on tantra and spiritual path

The Tantric way is open to all the richness of human nature, which it accepts without a single restriction. It is probably the only spiritual path that excludes nothing and no one, and, in this way, it corresponds to the deep aspirations of men and women today.

A Quote by Daniel Odier on tantra and touch

In Tantrism, the first thing is having the experience of touch, of profound contact with things, with the universe, without mental commotion. Everything begins there: touching the universe deeply. When you touch deeply, you no longer need to let go. That occurs naturally.
