Know well that all sense organs are made of emptiness;
Know well that all sense-objects are likewise, emptiness.
Know well that I'm the stainless One; I'm neither bound nor free.
I'm nectarean knowledge, unchanging bliss; I'm everywhere, like space.

Avadhuta Gita of Dattatreya

See More
Shiva is not white or yellow; He has no color at all.

Tell me, friend, how can I bow the Self unto the Self?

Avadhuta Gita of Dattatreya

See More
The distinction between "with qualities" and
"without qualities" does not exist in Him;
He's beyond both attachment and non-attachment;
Stainless, He's beyond all forms.
He's beyond both qualities and the absence of qualities;
Though formless, He's the substance of all forms.
So how can I worship that Shiva, who exists everywhere, like space!

“The essence of consciousness is freedom, and the essence of that is a mass of bliss. It is for this reason that ritual action directed toward an attainment of a state of identity and absorption should be carried out employing elements that bring joy to the Heart.”

If the mind and speech can't reveal the Self,
How could the Guru's teachings reveal the Self?
How could a Guru reveal with words
That Essence of existence which is self-illuminating?

Paramahansa Yogananda

See More
The Lord wants us to escape this delusive world. He cries for us, for He knows how hard it is for us to gain His deliverance. But you have only to remember that you are His child. Don't pity yourself. You are loved just as much by God as are Krishna and Jesus. You must seek His love, for it encompasses eternal freedom, endless joy, and immortality.

He does not envision the form of the great Shiva,

Meister Eckhart

See More
The soul is no different from Christ, except in that it has a born nature and a created nature. Christ does not have this in his eternal person. If the soul shed her born nature and her created nature, she would be all the same, just the essence itself. I say, put off your creature; it is easy to shed the creature, for this is a labor of love and the greater the pain the greater the joy.
