Apply Within…

 

 

You once told me

 
You wanted to find

 
Yourself in the world –

And I told you to

 
First apply within,

 
To discover the world

 
within you.

You wanted to save

 
The world from all its wars –

First save yourself

 
From the world,

 
And all the wars

 

 
Through.

Journey…

 

 

Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s

about un-becoming everything that isn’t 

really you, so you can be who you were

meant to be in the

first place.

~ ` ~ Paulo  Coelho

Natya…(dance)

There will be no wisdom, no learning,
no art, nor craft, no device,
nor action that is not found within
natya.

Let’s Pause…

 

 

Too often in life we pass by
Important things.

 
Let’s pause, change perspective &

 
See things more clearly.

Enduring & Real…

To look for a form or search 

for a 

sound

is to stumble down the

wrong path .

The wisdom that cannot be thought,

alone reveals that which

is enduring and

real…

 

   ~ ` ~   Zen

 

 

 

_RAM_6981-L


Breathe in…

 

 

Breathe in with the deep awareness that you are a 

human being.

Then breathe out and touch the earth,

a non-man element, as your mother.

Visualize the streams of water beneath the Earth’s

surface.

 

 

 

 

 

 

SRI_6386-L

 

 

See the minerals .See our Mother Earth, the Mother of

us all.

Then bring your arms up and breathe in again, touching the

trees, flowers, fruits, birds, squirrels, air and sky– the

non-elements.

 

 

JAN_5146-L

 

 

When your head is touching the air, the sun, the moon,

the galaxies, the cosmos–non-man elements that have

come together in order to make man possible–you see

that all of the elements are coming into you to make your

being possible.

 

 

 

SRI_6397-L

 

 

Breathing in again, stretch your arms and be aware that you also penetrate other 

elements.

 

 

 

 

JAN_5142-L

 

 

Man helps make the other elements possible.

 

( Words : Thich Nhat Hanh  )

Heart seeks…

 

 

From the clamor of crowds I flee,
my heart seeks

 
The kind of silence that would

 
mesmerize speech itself.

to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind.

When you can tell your story &

it doesn’t make you cry, you

know you have healed…

 

JAN_5093-1

 

They say time heals all wounds , but

                          freedom.

~ ` ~ Sri Aurobindo

What does it take to actually be a

own reality.
