When you are fully in the moment, this moment is all there is.

It feels like time slows down. When your mind is quiet, you enter into the flow of love, and you just flow from one moment to the next as naturally as breathing. Whatever arises, I embrace it with love in the moment. This is my practice of polishing the mirror to reflect Maharaj-ji’s love. In this moment there is just awareness and love. If someone asks me how to get into their heart, I give them this practice: I Am Loving Awareness.

I kept hoping to get esoteric teachings from Maharaj-ji, but when I asked, “How can I become enlightened?” he said things like, “Love everybody, serve everybody, and remember God,” or “Feed people.” When I asked, “How can I know God?” Maharaj-ji said, “The best form to worship God is in all forms. God is in everything.” These simple teachings, to love, serve, and remember, became the guideposts for my life.

Ultimately the game is nothing less than this, when you are in what is called sahaja samadhi: every in-breath, you consume the universe, between the in-breath and out-breath, you feed from God, then on the out-breath you feed humanity. On every in-breath you take it all back into yourself, between the in-breath and out-breath, the nectar pours into you, on the out-breath you bring it back down into your incarnation: that is the act of relieving suffering.

The heart surrenders everything to the moment. The mind judges and holds back.

Our rational minds can never understand what has happened, but our hearts.., if we can keep them open to God, will find their own intuitive way.

The universe is made up of experiences that are designed to burn out your attachment, your clinging, to pleasure, to pain, to fear, to all of it. And as long as there is a place where you’re vulnerable, the universe will find a way to confront you with it.

Listening is an art that comes from a quiet mind and an open heart. Listening uses all of your senses and it is a very subtle skill. Listening, just listening - not only with the ear, with your being. Your being becomes the instrument of listening. Your sensing mechanism in life is not just your ears, eyes, skin sensitivity and analytic mind. It’s something deeper in you. It’s some intuitive quality of knowing. With all of your being you become an antenna to the nature of another person.

We're fascinated by the words - but where we meet is in the silence behind them.

Oneness is the source of love. Real love is the One celebrating itself as the two.

And every time you step back from your own melodrama, the cosmic humor gets higher and higher.

You are existing at many planes simultaneously at this moment. The only reason you don’t know of your other identities is because you’re so attached to this one. But this one or that one; don’t get lost, don’t stick anywhere. It’s just more stuff. Go for broke, awake totally.

You may have expected that enlightenment would come Zap! instantaneous and permanent. This is unlikely. After the first "ah ha" experience, it can be thought of as the thinning of a layer of clouds..
