The love of God, unutterable and perfect,
flows into a pure soul the way that light
rushes into a transparent object.
The more love that it finds, the more it gives
itself; so that, as we grow clear and open,
the more complete the joy of heaven is.
And the more souls who resonate together,
the greater the intensity of their love,
and, mirror-like, each soul reflects the other.
~ Dante Alighieri
Only the Truth is and you are That!
The only obstacle to your enlightenment is the belief that you are not enlightened.

Nothing was ever born but a dream. Nothing ever dies but a dream.

If you knew your own beauty, you'd be the idol of yourself.
If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs - that is your success.
~ Henry David Thoreau
Like water, which can clearly mirror the sky and the trees only so long as its surface is undisturbed, the mind can only reflect the true image of the Self when it is tranquil and wholly relaxed.
~ Indra Devi

You are the truth from foot to brow. Now what else would you like to know?
Take off your shoes. The ground where you stand is holy ground.

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
~ Jalal ad-Din Rumi
Awakening is not an event, it's an ever-deepening unfoldment into living and embodying our divine essence in a fully human way.

Liberation is not liberation from life. It's a liberation to live more fully.

...the very act of seeking keeps us from resting, and it is only when we are at rest that our true nature reveals itself.
~ Rita Marie Robinson
We can all relax, and let life do all the work.

...the thing I thought I wanted, I really don't want and the thing I do need, I already have. ~
D. at State Prison, California
You are wanted totally, completely, by your own self. Freedom wants you as its own.
Be natural and you will flower
If this understanding enters you,
deeper and deeper and deeper,
then all effort becomes meaningless.
Then you are not constantly making
arrangements for the future,
then you live here and now...
then this moment is all,
then this moment is eternity.
~ Chuang Tzu
