Personal views -- on spiritual living................ Science has proof without any certainty.

Creationists have certainty without any proof. Religion is for people who are scared to go to hell. Spirituality is for people who have already been there. The eye with which I see God is the same with which God sees me. My eye and God' s eye is one eye, and one sight, and one knowledge, and one love. We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is th e friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; s ee the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls. If you can't improve on silence, don't speak. We sit together, the mountain and me, until only the mountain remains. All day I think about it, then at night I say it. Where did I come from, and wha t am I supposed to be doing? I have no idea. My soul is from elsewhere, I'm sure of that, and I intend to end up there. Wherever there is identity, there is an 'I' entity. Find out what this 'I' entit y is. See if it is real. To win true peace, a man needs to feel imself directed, pardoned, and sustained by a supreme power, to feel himself in the right road, at the point where God w ould have him be - in order with God and the universe. This faith gives strength and calm. We live in illusion and the appearance of things. There is a reality. We are tha t reality. When you understand this, you see that you are nothing, and being not hing, you are everything. That is all. Let it be seen that you are nothing. And in knowing that you are nothing... ther e is nothing to lose, there is nothing to gain. What can happen to you? Somethin g can happen to the body, but it will either heal or it won't. What's the big de al? Let life knock you to bits. Let life take you apart. Let life destroy you. I t will only destroy what you are not. Pain is of the body. Suffering is of the mind. Both arise in awareness. On the s urface, suffering is the mind's resistance to or refusal of pain. On a deeper le vel, suffering is the result of believing yourself to be a separate self. Withdr aw identification from the ego idea and all suffering drops away immediately. Wi ll things still hurt? Of course. But they will not produce unnecessary suffering . Death is the greatest gift that was ever given to man. Why do you think life doe s everything in its power to return to death? Live without pretending, Love without depending, Listen without defending, Speak without offending. Life can either be accepted or changed. If it is not accepted, it must be change d. If it cannot be changed, then it must be accepted.
