Knowing and loving the ~ Energy Body ~ Select quotes from Jane Klein

We must look at our body completely objectively, as we look at a tree or a table or any object which does not have a strong psychological impact on us. We will then feel, without comment, the weight, contraction, agitation, and so on.

We accept the facts without psychological: interference. In accepting the sensation of the body—accepting, not tolerating—the various sensations can come fully into our acceptance, our awareness.

Select quotations on Self Enquiry and Centering Awareness from the Vijñāna Bhairava Tantra

When the awareness has abandoned one object and remains fixed without moving on to another object, then through the state in between (the two) the supreme realisation will unfold. ~ Verse 62

One should concentrate on the state when sleep has not yet come, but the external awareness has disappeared (between waking and sleep)—there the supreme Goddess reveals herself. ~ Verse 75

Osho on Depression ~ When Depressed, be Depressed

“When depressed, be depressed. Simply be depressed. Don’t get depressed about your depression. When depressed, simply be depressed. Don’t fight it, don’t create any diversion; don’t force it to go. Just allow it to happen, it will go by itself. Life is a flux, nothing remains. You are not needed: the river moves by itself, you are not to push it. If you are trying to push it, you are simply foolish.
The river flows by itself – allow it to flow.”

Jeff Foster ~ This is not a Teaching and I am not a Teacher

“The word “depressed” is spoken phonetically as “deep rest”. We can view depression not as a mental illness, but on a deeper level, as a profound, and very misunderstood, state of deep rest, entered into when we are completely exhausted by the weight of our own identity.”

Ram Dass ~ Be Love Now ~ A Biography

His narrations are powered enough to influence anyone to lead a beautiful life. His words always mention the importance of leading a Satvik life, the power of yoga, meditation. Leading a comfortable life is way better than a luxurious life. If you consider money as the only way to get comfortable, then you are missing a lot. There are so many elements on earth, nature, that can please you and give you a beautiful life. Regular yoga, a good diet is most important. Another essential aspect of life is the inner you. If you cannot keep your mind and soul pure, then nothing can please you completely. Ram Dass always mentioned the power of being together, love, humanity, and minimalist.

Alan Watts ~ A Man of Zen

The LA Times wrote the following about him: “Perhaps the foremost interpreter of Eastern disciplines for the contemporary West, Alan Watts had the rare gift of writing beautifully the un-writable. Watts began with scholarship and intellect and proceeded with art and eloquence to the frontiers of the spirit. A fascinating entry into the deepest ways of knowing.

Gibberish Meditation by Osho

“I am dealing with the contemporary man, who is the most restless being that has ever evolved on the earth. But people do become silent; you just have to allow them to throw out their madness, insanity, then they themselves become silent.” 
Osho

Mystic Rose Meditation by Osho

“All that this world needs is a good cleansing of the heart of all the inhibitions of the past. Laughter and tears can do both. Tears will take out all the agony that is hidden inside you and laughter will take all that is preventing your ecstasy.”

Be As You Are: The Teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi

Arranging thoughts in the order of value, the `I’-thought is the all-important thought. Personality-idea or thought is also the root or the stem of all other thoughts, since each idea or thought arises only as someone’s thought and is not known to exist independently of the ego. The ego therefore exhibits thought activity.

The second and the third persons [he, you, that, etc.] do not appear except to the first person [I]. Therefore they arise only after the first person appears, so all the three persons seem to rise and sink together.

Trace, then, the ultimate cause of `I’ or personality. From where does this `I’ arise? Seek for it within; it then vanishes. This is the pursuit of wisdom. When the mind unceasingly investigates its own nature, it transpires that there is no such thing as mind. This is the direct path for all. The mind is merely thoughts. Of all thoughts the thought `I’ is the root. Therefore the mind is only the thought `I’. The birth of the `I’-thought is one’s own birth, its death is the person’s death. After the `I’-thought has arisen, the wrong identity with the body arises. Get rid of the `I’-thought. So long as `I’ is alive there is grief. When `I’ ceases to exist there is no grief.

The Power of Now – A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment ~ By Eckhart Tolle

Being is the eternal, ever-present One Life beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death. However, Being is not only beyond but also deep within every form as its innermost invisible and indestructible essence. This means that it is accessible to you now as your own deepest self, your true nature. But don’t seek to grasp it with your mind. Don’t try to understand it. You can know it only when the mind is still. When you are present when your attention is fully and intensely in the Now, Being can be felt, but it can never be understood mentally. To regain awareness of Being and to abide in that state of “feeling-realization” is enlightenment.

Autobiography of a Yogi : Paramahansa Yogananda

“The deeper the Self-realization of a man, the more he influences the whole universe by his subtle spiritual vibrations, and the less he himself is affected by the phenomenal flux.”

“You may control a mad elephant;
You may shut the mouth of the bear and the tiger;
Ride the lion and play with the cobra;
By alchemy you may learn your livelihood;
You may wander through the universe incognito;
Make vassals of the gods; be ever youthful;
You may walk in water and live in fire;
But control of the mind is better and more difficult.”

The Art of Happiness ~ by Dalai Lama

“On the other hand, you can have another person enjoying a similar economic status and financial success, but at the same time, that person is warm and affectionate and has a feeling of compassion. Because that person has another source of worth, another source that gives him or her a sense of dignity, another anchor, there is less chance of that person’s becoming depressed if his or her fortune happens to disappear. Through this type of reasoning, you can see the very practical value of human warmth and affection in developing an inner sense of worth.”
