in the silence is where pure awareness reveals itself...

out of stock - for available zafus click here

Quietness is a name for consciousness, peace. Everything is found in the silence and not too much in the words. In quietness, you should try to be quiet for as long as you can, especially when you are at home. Try to sit in the silence and quietness for as long as you can. It’s in the silence where you will receive the message. It’s in the silence where pure awareness reveals itself to you. Never be afraid to sit in the silence. It’s your greatest asset.

Shift from the old Carbon based Physical Form to the New Crystalline Light based form...

~ The Physical Body and the New Reality ~
As the deep shifts occur, your Physical Body will begin the process of adapting to the New Reality and the Higher Consciousness Grids. There are two processes involved here. The first is a very deep cleansing and throwing off of anything that is heavy, low frequency, toxic and limiting to you and others. You may notice your body seeking changes, in diet, exercise, sleep patterns and ways of expression. This process of "clarification" is necessary for the next step, where the body begins to "breathe light" in the Cells.

coming alive, and being there for it!

**"He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who conquers will not be hurt by the second death." ~Revelation 2:11
**"Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who shall not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom." ~Mathew 16:28
"No one can die unless he chooses death" ~Text, ACIM
QUESTION: I've been giving a lot of thought about the things that you've been saying about thinking. And it's occurred to me before I heard you say this that when we're not thinking we're fully present in the moment and we're giving our attention to whatever is in front of us. And awareness seems to expand in the moment. In other words, ideas or insights occur in the moment of what is going on. This is the way I'm experiencing this. And in the moment it's timeless. Here in this moment is no time. If I'm seeing this correctly.....
ANSWER: That is correct.
QUESTION: Now if that in fact "be here now, this is the Kingdom of God now," with my full attention present, I am not in time, which is the past or the future, the opportunity to be here now forever as I am in my body is possible as it fulfills purpose?

praying means being silent and listening...

"As my prayer became more attentive and inward I had less and less to say. I finally became completely silent. I started to listen – which is even further removed from speaking. I first thought that praying entailed speaking. I then learnt that praying is hearing, not merely being silent. This is how it is. To pray does not mean to listen to oneself speaking, Prayer involves becoming silent, And being silent, And waiting until God is heard." ~ Søren Kierkegaard

teach only Love for that is what you truly are...

 on Contemplative Prayer:
A Course in Miracles quote
" reason why our meditation never gets started is perhaps that we never make this real, serious return
to the center of our own nothingness before God. Hence we never enter into the deepest reality of our relationship with him. In other words we meditate merely "in the mind," in the imagination or at best in the desires, considering religious truths from a detached objective point of view. We do not begin by seeking to "find our heart", that is to sink into an awareness of the ground of our identity before God and in God. "Finding our heart" and
recovering this awareness of our inmost identity implies the recognition that our external everyday self is to a great extent a mask and a fabrication. It is not our true self. It is not easy to find. It is hidden in obscurity and “nothingness” at the center where we are in direct dependence on God." ~Thomas Merton

God is the Love with which I love myself...

A Course in Miracles quote
"Great Compassion"

Great compassion is like the sky, 
because it covers all living beings;
 great compassion is like the earth, 
because it produces all the teachings; 
great compassion makes it possible 
to see buddha nature, 
by first clarifying real knowledge 
for the sake of others.

~Zen Master Torei

be alive, be soft and yielding...

Bend with the Wind

At birth all people are soft and yielding
At death they are hard and stiff
Live plants are tender and yielding
At death they are brittle and dry
When hard and rigid, we consort with death
When soft and yielding, we are followers of Life.

Tao Te Ching 76
