Let silence take you to the core of life.
Rumi (via thecalminside)

Be still. It takes no effort to be still; it is utterly simple. When your mind is still, You have no name, You have no past, You have no relationships, You have no country, You have no spiritual attainment, You have no lack of spiritual attainment.
There is just the presence of beingness with itself.
Gangaji (via tobiji)

Whether you let it or not, everything takes care of itself. Let it.

For the first time


When the compulsive story telling stops,
and twitches of like and don’t like fade,
even for a second

you will see that you are here
for the first time ever.

No one has been here before you, no one.

You are the first to look out over this miracle;
the first twinkle of awareness
shining here in wonder and astonishment

And there is no you doing any gazing:

this is the Universe seeing Herself
over and over again for the first time

completely awe struck at her own infinite splendour.

I rest in God


This is the day of peace. You rest in God, and while the world is torn by winds of hate, your rest remains completely undisturbed. Yours is the rest of truth. Appearances cannot intrude on you. You call to all to join you in your rest, and they will hear and come to you because you rest in God. They will not hear another voice than yours because you gave your voice to God, and now you rest in Him and let Him speak through you.

In Him you have no cares and no concerns, no burdens, no anxiety, no pain, no fear of future and no past regrets. In timelessness you rest, while time goes by without its touch upon you, for your rest can never change in any way at all. You rest today. And as you close your eyes, sink into stillness. Let these periods of rest and respite reassure your mind that all its frantic fantasies were but the dreams of fever that has passed away. Let it be still and thankfully accept its healing. No more fearful dreams will come, now that you rest in God. Take time today to slip away from dreams and into peace.

Not being tense but ready.
Not thinking but not dreaming.
Not being set but flexible.
Liberation from the uneasy sense of confinement. It is being wholly and quietly alive, aware and alert, ready for whatever may come.
Bruce Lee

Stress makes you believe that everything has to happen right now. Faith reassures you that everything will happen in spirits timing.

Experience life in all possible ways — good-bad, bitter-sweet, dark-light, summer-winter. Experience all the dualities. Don’t be afraid of experience, because the more experience you have, the more mature you become.
Shantideva (via panatmansam)
