I pray today Father, that the human mind and consciousness will open up more and more and be directed to you, our origin, our mighty God.

May this earth begin to heal, may human minds and hearts turn more and more away from the foolishness of the world into the very heart of true life.

Bless those who are sick, who are persecuted in this life, bless each one who is going through pain of whatever kind.

Even if all things will pass away, you, oh Self, are always here...

Before one studies Zen, mountains are mountains and waters are waters; after a first glimpse into the truth of Zen, mountains are no longer mountains and waters are no longer waters; after enlightenment, mountains are once again mountains and waters once again waters.

A true meeting of the Heart is like
water being poured into water.
Neither division or separation is there.
When one finds the Truth,
neither the seeker nor the finder remain.
Whose discovery is this?

There’s an old Zen story where a monk’s sitting in meditation and his master walks up to him and says, ‘What are you doing?’
He says, ‘I’m polishing my mind so it becomes like a mirror and reflects reality perfectly.’
Isn’t that a nice spiritual idea? The only problem is that it’s a bunch of bull.
So the teacher leans over and picks up this tile off the floor - two tiles - and starts rubbing two tiles together as a response to what his student said.
And the student said, ‘What are you rubbing two tiles together for?’
(Teacher) says, ‘Cause I’m trying to make a perfect mirror.’
And the student, embarrassingly, understood the point. No amount of tile polishing will make the tiles into a perfect mirror. No amount of mind polishing will make the mind unconditioned.
Only the unconditioned is unconditioned.
Your own awareness itself is unconditioned.
Have you noticed?
Not what you are aware of, that’s conditioned to the hilt. But the awareness itself - is completely unconditioned.
It’s as unconditioned as the day before you were born. And by paying attention to that, by just resting as that awareness - spontaneously an unconditioned consciousness becomes conscious of itself. That’s what spiritual awakening is - unconditioned consciousness becomes conscious of itself.

There are many envious people in the world. When they see others living a life of ease and abundance, they envy them and want to send them wandering away to deprive them of their fortune.

Глаза джняни уподобляют глазам мертвого козла; они всегда открыты, никогда не закрываются. Они блестят, но ничего не видят, хотя другим кажется, что они видят все.

Древние Риши сперва изучали вещественную науку,
Однако, не сумев получить в этом настоящего счастья,
Они пошли дальше, в направлении изучения ментального.
Здесь они совершили удивительные открытия,
К примеру, о способности к чтению мыслей других,
Об узнаванию о случившемся на огромной дистанции,
О вхождении в тело другого, о покидании своего,
Об излечении духа и тела рецитацией Мантры,
А также приобрели великое множество сил (так называемых сиддхи),
Но, в конце концов, осознав, что все эти чудесные силы
Никак не помогут в достижении Вечного Счастья,
Они направили всё внимание к реализации и познанию Души.
И в этом они обнаружили совершенное Довольство Духа -
Они достигли предельного Блага.
Здесь они испытали непревзойдённые радость и счастье,
И в том состоянии каждый из них восклицает:
"О, блаженен Я!", "О, благословлён Я!"
Та Высшая Истина, что они поняли в этом Знании,
Была провозглашена ими как Ишвара Дэва (Господь),
То есть просвещающий Дух Всего или Брахман
(Тот, прежде и выше кого нет вообще ничего),
И они объявили это как Источник целой Вселенной.

With the exception of very few who have gained higher spiritual tendencies in prior lives, Self-realization is not possible for anyone without the blessings of a guru. Think of the guru as the manifestation of God in this world. Take even the most insignificant word of the guru as an order and obey it. That is the real service to the guru. There is no greater austerity. The guru's blessings flow automatically to any obedient disciple. That is the real service to the guru.

Compassion does not see the faults of others. It does not see the weaknesses of people. It makes no distinction between good and bad people. Compassion cannot draw a line between two countries, two faiths or two religions. Compassion has no ego; thus there is no fear, lust or passion. Compassion simply forgives and forgets. Compassion is like a passage. Everything passes through it. Nothing can stay there. Compassion is love expressed in all its fullness.

The single biggest thing I learned was from an indigenous elder of Cherokee descent, Stan Rushworth, who reminded me of the difference between a Western settler mindset of "I have rights" and an indigenous mindset of "I have obligations." Instead of thinking that I am born with rights, I choose to think that I am born with obligations to serve past, present, and future generations, and the planet herself.
