Just see… Nothing is actually affecting you when you just observe, when you don’t say, ‘This should not be.’ Pay attention to this wonderful power within you that simply observes without judgment, intention and attachment. Feel that space and peace. Give it a chance. ~ Mooji

 

We are awake in the dream when we know that it is just dreaming and we are no longer deceived – we no longer give it meaning or judge it in any way. Awake enough to see glimmerings of light beyond the appearances. Awake enough to be aware of love and joy for no earthly reason.

1. My speaking is meant to shake you awake, not to tell you how to dream better. – Adyashanti  

 

2. If you see the illusion you are enlightened, but if you think that you are enlightened, you are in the illusion. – Papaji

 

3. Truth is not just about what we say…it is the realization that what we’ve created, individually or collectively, is illusion. As we awaken, truth gets revealed to us…It sometimes rocks our “here and now” existence, creates feelings of pain or loss in the moment…but it also sets us free. When we free ourselves from the illusions, we can return to our own power.

 

4. Do not think that enlightenment is going to make you special, it’s not. If you feel special in any way, then enlightenment has not occurred. I meet a lot of people who think they are enlightened and awake simply because they have had a very moving spiritual experience. They wear their enlightenment on their sleeve like a badge of honor. They sit among friends and talk about how awake they are while sipping coffee at a cafe. The funny thing about enlightenment is that when it is authentic, there is no one to claim it. Enlightenment is very ordinary; it is nothing special. Rather than making you more special, it is going to make you less special. It plants you right in the center of a wonderful humility and innocence. Everyone else may or may not call you enlightened, but when you are enlightened the whole notion of enlightenment and someone who is enlightened is a big joke. I use the word enlightenment all the time; not to point you toward it but to point you beyond it. Do not get stuck in enlightenment. – Adyashanti

 

5. Today We Affirm:  In my world, there is magic even in the mundane. I am not looking for special people or special moments. This moment is enough and I am sufficient for the moment. By Grace, I see my world with loving gentle eyes and I allow myself to be just as I am, and just as I am not. Therefore, I release all others to be just as they are. I will not push or bully myself today but instead I walk with the Mighty Ones Who guide me down the gentle paths of freedom, love and peace. ~ Jacob Glass

1.Never underestimate the power of your thoughts…. 

 

2. When one realizes one is asleep, at that moment one is already half-awake. P. D. Ouspensky (1878-1947)

 

3. “As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” ~ Henry David Thoreau

 

4. “If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.” ~ Peace Pilgrim  (Jacob always says something like this “if a tooth fell out every time you had a negative thought, we would stop immediately” but we think it’s as serious as that, so we are not as vigilant with our mind because we don’t always see the immediate consequences of our thoughts)

5. Events are neutral, but our thoughts are not. For our thoughts literally are imbued with the power of creation.
