The Moon Lives

As if you were on fire from within.

The moon lives in the lining of your skin.

From Your Soul

When you do things from your soul,
you feel a river moving
in you, a joy.

Without a Window

Your Greatest Treasures

Simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and thoughts,
you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.

Lao Tzu

A Great Lesson

preface: The UPANISHADS are ancient lessons
for attaining the ultimate goal. Freedom
from attachment to all worlds

OM. THAT IS full; this is full. This fullness has been projected from that fullness.

When this fullness merges in that fullness, all that remains is fullness.

Om. Peace! Peace! Peace!

Om. May Brahman protect us both! May Brahman bestow upon us both the

 fruit of Knowledge! May we both obtain the energy to acquire Knowledge!

May what we both study reveal the Truth! May we cherish no ill feeling towards

each other!

Om. Peace! Peace! Peace!

 The “Self”
It is very difficult to
actually put the Self into words. The Mundaka Upanishad (Two Modes of
Knowing
) claims “The Lord of Love is above name and form. He is present in
all and transcends all.” This Upanishad continues later to add:

“Bright but hidden, the Self dwells in the heart.
Everything that moves,
breathes, opens, and closes
Lives in the Self. He is the source of
love
And may be known through love but not through thought
He is the goal
of life. Attain this goal!”

the student inquires further …

Who makes my mind think?
Who fills my body with vitality?
Who causes my
tongue to speak? Who is that
Invisible one who sees through my eyes?
And
hears through my ears?

The teacher replies:
The Self is in the ear of the ear,
The eye
of the eye, the mind of the mind,
The word of words, and the life of
life…
We do not know, we cannot understand,
Because he is different from
the known
And he is different from the unknown.

“Self” used with capital letter refers to Great Spirit or God

 

this concept is expressed in John 17

Be of this world but not in it.
