The confirmations of the Spirit are all those…

The confirmations of the Spirit are all those powers and gifts which some are born with (and which men sometimes call genius), but for which others have to strive with infinite pains. They come to that man or woman who accepts his life with radiant acquiescence.

~ ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

The “nameless name” is sometimes referred to as “the Word” (“In the beginning was the Word …”) and “the unstruck sound” of Vedic scriptures.

“That shoreline where the island of knowing meets the unfathomable sea of our own being is the landscape of myth.” (The Time Falling Bodies Take to Light: Mythology, Sexuality and the Origins of Culture, 87)

“A myth is never known; it is a relationship between the known and the unknowable.” (The Time Falling Bodies Take to Light, 87)

“At the edge of consciousness, there are no explanations; there are only invocations of myth.” (The Time Falling Bodies Take to Light, 94)

“If you do not create your destiny, you will have your fate inflicted upon you.” (attributed)

“Studying texts and stiff meditation can make you lose your Original Mind. A solitary tune by a fisherman, though, can be an invaluable treasure. Dusk, rain on the river, the moon peeking in and out of the clouds. Elegant beyond words, he chants his songs night after night.”

“One of the images that I like to use in teaching people about going into the feelings is the first time I learned to snow ski. You’re at the top of the mountain, and you’re looking down the mountain, and really all you want to do is fall back on your butt. But the ski instructor is saying “Look, the only way that this is going to work out is if you lean into the mountain and down the mountain.” This is exactly what I teach people to do with feelings: lean into them, go into them, because touching them with awareness and learning to be with them actually allows these especially difficult mind states, difficult feeling states, to move—to move through the body, to move through the mind.”

“Mindful reflection helps you identify the things that matter as they’re happening. By examining your motivations as you engage in your everyday life you gain insight into the way you choose between good and bad, right and wrong, happiness and unhappiness. All these things can be changed, but only when you see them in context. By cultivating a non-judgmental attitude towards your own thoughts and feelings, perceptions and fears, you transform your relationship with stress — and find balance. Mindfulness is an ancient Buddhist practice ideally suited to the modern world. Just as Buddhism is more than a simple technique, mindful reflection is more than just meditation.”

~Stephen Schettini~

“The idea that forgiveness is something you do for someone else results from the perception of power as the ability to manipulate and control. The unconscious intention behind not forgiving is to cause pain in someone you feel caused pain in you, and thereby alter his or her behavior. This never works because the origins of your emotional pain are inside you. When you choose not to forgive, you inflict pain upon yourself. Not forgiving is like trying to cause someone else pain by breaking your fingers. You are the one who is hurting when you do not forgive. There is nothing healing, nurturing, or even slightly positive about not forgiving.”

~ Gary Zukav ~

“All men should try to learn before they die what they are running from, and to, and why.”

Krishna the mouth piece of Hinduism in all…

Krishna, …….the mouth-piece of Hinduism in all its manifestations, finds it perfectly natural that different men should have different methods and even apparently differently objects of worship. All roads lead to Rome–provided, of course, that it is Rome and not some other city which the traveler really wishes to reach.
