My Lady, Cindy, pushes my hair into balance..
This gray hair permeates the belief that seventy is fifty..
Although, the body is considered old, the mind remain unencumbered..
Chess becomes a partner in intellect..
Religion becomes a person once known..
Life is short within the memory of 'Being'..
You ask me to speak of Reality and yet,
I can only speak to you of Seeing..
How am I to navigate your thoughts ?..
I remain the Observer...
Hear the voices of non-egoic consciousness..
Fame and wealth is vain glory..
You are here to discover Truth..
Having a hero is adventageous,
but, Reality, draws closer to thoughts of Truth..
Listen to the frequencies of sound..
You will find yourself within a bridge..
Continue to walk..
I will meet you at the end...
In my experience of Reality,
I found this Light and Love to be perfectly normal..
In this Hell of Duality, we strive..
Love seems to be in a partnership of lonliness..
Negative and Positive appear as hugging..
We keep looking out,
when we should be looking in...
The person is a very small thing.
Actually it is a
composite, it cannot be said to exist by itself.
Unperceived, it is just not there.
It is but the
shadow of the mind, the sum total of memories.
Pure being is reflected in the mirror of the mind,
What is known takes the shape of a
person, based on memory and habit.
It is but a
shadow, or a projection of the knower onto the
screen of the mind.

"I Am That"
Talks with Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
The Acorn Press, 1973
The most valuable metaphysical fruit of the quantum theory is its finding that the processes of the universe which occur in space and time,
emanate from what is fundamentally not in space and time.

The truth is you really are nothing, but this nothing is full, whole, infinite in everything and everywhere.
This nothing is conciousness itself.
It is already whole, complete and fulfilled.
This is the amazing irony.
The love that you search for everywhere is already present within you.
It may be evoked by any number of people or events.
But finally, you must realize you are this love.
The source of all love is within you.
Is a 'Thing' called a self ?..
Is there a point of Consciousness that must exist ?..
Is there a reason to feel pain ?..
The ego says, yes..
The ego says;
I am the generator of thoughts,
follow them into hypnosis..
I control the Dreams..
I control You..
The electrons striking one another..
This friction of temperature..
Life seems to thrive within the arms of warmth..
Giant balls of Light give the Dreams, Energy..
Life continues to search for both continuation of the Dreams and the death of Dreams..
Which state of existence and non-existence, brings Peace..
This thin line between these thoughts of Mind is called Love..
Love is the scale that holds both pain and joy..
Love is the Thinker, but accepts the pains of non-love..
Love is the manifestator of discovery..
Love is the only path for the 'Thought-form' called human..
All else is misery...
