I have spoke about this book before: An Excerpt from Remember, Be Here Now by Ram Dass om94
"Push far enough into the void
Hold fast enough to Quietness
And of the ten thousand things
Non but can be worked by you
I have beheld them wither they go back
See all things howsoever they flourish
Return to the roots from which they grew
This return to the roots is called quietness
Quietness is called
Submission to fate
What has submitted to fate becomes part of the always so
To know the always so is to be illumined
Not to know it means to go blindly to Disaster" So says Lao Tzu in the Tao Te Ching
To go you've got to go the whole trip All the way to the back Before you get to the place where you see that behind all this there is all this in its OM In its unmanifest form Always Eternally You perceive that NOTHING is really happening at all NOTHING ever happends NOTHING is going to happen. There's NOTHING you've got to do. There's no doer to do it anyway
When I read this today and then saw the SURFING art, it made me think about surfing the waves of quietness that we all seek in daily life. On a daily basics we have stress, outside influences, drama etc. We are like surfers in the ocean, waiting for that right moment to catch a wave, however the waves we are catching at that brief moment when everything is silent. We do have to submit to ourselves. We have to remember to listen to our heartbeat. Let go. Trust.
We all seek internal wisdom, even myself. I learn everyday and I continue to grow every day. My growth within myself, helps me to help others. My first rule when working with others is that I can only help your on your path. My job is to help guide. I can not fix you. Only you can fix you. I saw this today on FB "We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves." -Buddha Bless You This quote speaks so much truth. Surf the quietness inside you. Be patient like the great surfers in the world. Your patience will be rewarded.
I recently picked up Remember Now Be Here by Hanuman Foundation.
It is a very interesting read and I resonate with many of sayings. I have decided to share a few with you during blog posts.
This is from page 76.
LOVE in the worlds' great religions:
Christianity: "Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God; and knoweth God. He that loveth not, knoweth not God, for God is Love"
Confucianism: "To love all men is the greatest benevolence"
Buddhism: "Let a man cultivate towards the whole world a heart of Love"
Hinduism: "One can be worship the Lord through Love"
Islam: "Love is this, that thou shouldst account thyself very little and God very great"
Taoism: "Heaven arms with Love those it would not see destroyed."
Sikhism: "God will regenerate those in whose hearts there is Love"
Judaism: "Thou shalt Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and they neighbor as thyself"
Jainism: "The days are of most profit to him who acts in Love"
Zoroastrianism: "Man is the beloved of the Lord and should Love him in return"
Baha'i: "Love Me that I may love thee. If thou loves Me not, My love can no wise reach thee"
Shinto: "Love is the representative of the Lord"
My conclusion, is that LOVE resonates with all. LOVE.
