in-body Ascension...

"In order to be connected to your Divine Holy Royal Heritage of Knowledge it is necessary to meditate every single day. Only then are you able to disconnect from the mundane and connect to the Holy Spirit. The Liquid Light Codes surrounded by the electromagnetic Force called Love. Basking in Love, Joy, Bliss and being Your True Highest Self. This is what it means to meditate. This is what it means to be a Lightworker on Planet Earth. From time to time you reach this state of consciousness on your own. It catches you unaware. It is Bliss. It brings unexpected tears of joy. It is all too fleeting. The moments of pure bliss and joy fleet away. By learning to meditate you connect with Divine Mind and bliss can stay with you. The Highest choice.
In the Light there is everything to see. You cannot see anything in darkness. As you procrastinate from regularly practicing meditation you risk coming to the end of your life without having Ascension in a Body. This is the beginning of learning to navigate in the Merkaba Body."

multidimensionality of consciousness...

"Just as the difference between the space in a pot and the space outside it disappears when the pot is demolished, so also does duality disappear when it is realized that the difference between the individual consciousness and the Universal Consciousness does not in fact exist."
~ Ramesh Balsekar

Inside, outside - same same. Let's just effin get rid of any residual guilt,
so we can totally enjoy the life experience we have, while we still (seem to) have a bodily form.

being engaged with Life through breath...

"Simply sit, open to God breathing divine love into the depths of your being, as you breathe your whole being, as a gift of love, back into God. This one practice alone, engaged in with heartfelt sincerity and devotion, can awaken you to God’s total and complete oneness with you as the giver, the sustainer, and the reality of the sheer miracle of your very being."
~James Finley

- nothing to fear and nothing to fight. All is well.

"[When you awaken] you want to share this truth with your friends, with your family and with your associates, but you cannot, for there are no words to describe this. Everywhere you look, you see freedom. Everywhere you look, you see love. All the trivialities are gone. The judgments have dissipated. You have nothing to fear and nothing to fight. All is well."
~ Robert Adams (20th century American Advaita mystic)

the SELF as true Lover - Become the Love, and the Lover!

{{{{{{{  the SELF as true Lover - Become the Love, and the Lover!  }}}}}}}
Everything we really need is already in our heart of Hearts- the Spiritual Heart behind the physical heart.  
"LOVE is the within, centre and without, it is the beneath, middle and beyond, it is the pervasive vibration reverberating the underlying fabric of this entire cosmic existence. It is the omnipresent bond between all, it is all that is, it is who you are. So beloved dear, once this sacred knowing of your Self as LOVE comes to you, no one will ever need to teach you to love yourself or to love your fellow beings. That will happen automatically out of your authentic beingness, in every single moment, not just on a 'special' day. To give love, you first have to embody it, you have to be it. Fill yourself with love to the peak by being love, and then once you are filled, overflow with it and let it flow over to everyone and everything in existence. Unless you are filled with it, you have nothing to give anyone. May this ultimate knowing come to you, may you radiate eternal LOVE every day in any given moment _/|\_ LOVE is infinite, it is eternal, let's not limit it to this day only but cultivate it every single moment. Happy Valentine's Day!"

not so black and E.B.White...

"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day."

we're the projector of our "American Dream"

"A monk decided to meditate alone, away from his monastery. He took his boat out to the middle of the lake, moored it there, closed his eyes and began meditating. After a few hours of undisturbed silence, he suddenly felt the bump of another boat colliding with his own.
With his eyes still closed, he felt his anger rising, and by the time he opened his eyes, he was ready to scream at the boatman who had so carelessly disturbed his meditation. But when he opened his eyes, he was surprised to find that it was an empty boat that had struck his own. It had probably gotten untethered and floated to the middle of the lake.
At that moment, the monk had a great realization. He understood that the anger was within him; it merely needed the bump of an external object to provoke it out of him. From then on, whenever he came across someone who irritated him or provoked him to anger, he would remind himself, that the other person was merely an empty boat, the anger was within him."
Typically, for years now, my night dreams take on a nightmarish-ness that usually wakes me up in horror or fright. The last two nights though, I had dreams that were not the usual content. I had a somewhat disturbing but mostly delightful dream with Pierce Brosnan in it. And last night Patton Oswalt figured largely in a bizarre but mostly comedic dream. Hopefully, we're getting into some lighter dream material now. Whew! I knew I had a sense of humor in there somewhere!

And, now for some serial (cereal) images...well, just one actually.

Honey, I'm Home!

"Holiness is our natural state - no exceptions...
much as we would like and love to exclude others 
who are simply beyond redemption. Not us. 
We think we are (for the most part) going to walk, or slide, 
in that door when the time comes. 
It's a journey that was over before it began. 
We're (already) Home, honey!!! 
Self-realization vs self-awareness."

the scent of Love...

"True freedom is when
 all the stories, all the insights, all the realizations, 
concepts, beliefs and positions dissolve. 
What remains is what you are; 
a vast, conscious, luminous space simply resting in itself,
 not knowing a thing, at the point where all things are possible.”
~ Enza Vita

you are the formless, timeless, unborn...

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj~
"The whole world is an ever-changing state. No form is permanent.
All you have to do is see the dream as a dream … 
you are the formless, timeless, unborn. 
I ask you to stop imagining that you were born, 
have parents, are a body, will die and so on."

Nisargadatta was born on 4/17/1897 in Bombay. After his father died, he moved to Bombay to support his family back home, following his elder brother. Initially he worked as a junior clerk at an office but quickly he opened a small goods store, mainly selling beedis – leaf-rolled cigarettes, and soon owned a string of eight retail shops. In 1924 he married, and they had three daughters and a son. 
Nisargadatta supported himself, his wife and children by selling small goods and beedis. I'm not Nisargadatta, but I do love his teachings. I also (try to) support myself, using the skills I currently have. Quite honestly, I need to pay some large-ish bills very soon. Homeowner's insurance bill is a down payment of several hundred dollars - due Mar. 1st. Vehicle insurance is a payment of $100. due this month - 2/25/17. I need to get my car into a shop and see why it is smelling of sulphur all the time, and running poorly. New car brakes are needed, too. I would like to start holding small meditation meetings in my home once or twice a week, and to do that I need to do some work on the master bathroom pipes - either jetting them or replacing them. This will cost from $100. at the least to $1K to 2K. at the most. And there are the ongoing monthly bills for utilities, etc. I need to make many, many sales in my etsy store, and I am open to accepting paypal donations payable to paypal.me/SarahNolt

at ease...as you (already) were until you weren't

We may find ourselves asking: 
“Why am I here? What is life? Who am I?” 
Sooner or later any intelligent person asks these questions. 
What you are looking for is what you already are, not what you will become. 
What you already are is the answer and the source of the question. 
In this lies its power of transformation. 
It is a present actual fact. 
Looking to become something is completely conceptual, merely an idea. 
 The seeker will discover that he is what he seeks 
and that what he seeks is the source of the inquiry.
