"There is a voice that does not use words. Listen, it comes like dawn,
and you wake up laughing at what you thought was your grief."
We dwell intimately close to a door of revelation we are afraid to pass through. Being wholeheartedly with what is, being with what we truly feel deep inside; not holding back, not turning away, sitting with it, talking with it, and not rushing in to avoid it or cover it up is precisely what takes us to truly come out on the other side.
" Then all schools are given up, all effort ceases; in solitude and darkness the vast step is made which ended ignorance and fear forever." (Nisargadatta. Maharaj)
" Deep inside refuse to run. Longing and loss and fear of the future gives way to reality and the self. Remember yourself and live one day at a time. What is true, deeply true now? "
" Facing all fears and the loss of all, the illusory difference between life and death, between being and non-being dissolved, and I have emerged into the silent bliss of reality."
" Eternity consciousness was palpably real; like having had a cataract taken off my brain, letting me experience the world and myself properly for the first time, for that dark radiance seemed to reveal the essence of everything." (John Wren-Lewis " The Void. No sound, no silence, no light, no darkness. It is real and it is you."
