Prior to consciousness

"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. Reach out wholeheartedly for the timeless perfection to which nothing can be added nor taken away from. Deep inside refuse to run.

  Whatever is to be made to fall, first must be raised. If you want to become whole, let yourself become broken. If you want to become straight, let yourself become twisted. If you want to become full, let yourself become empty.

    " I tuned into my heart, I refused to turn, I refused to run. Emptiness came into view. I entered emptiness, became empty and the world became full."  (OmJaya)

    " 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." (OmJaya)

    " Being with what is, staying with the truth of our experience, sitting with our pain and not rushing in to avoid it or cover it up is precisely what will take us to truly come out on the other side."  (Fifi Webster Paul)

    " It was more 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)

     " Then all schools are given up, all effort ceases; in solitude and darkness the vast step is made which ends ignorance and fear forever."  (Nisargadatta Maharaj)

The devil whispered in my ear,
"you're not strong enough to withstand the storm."
 Today I whispered in the devil's ear, "I am the storm."
