If you think the Kingdom of God is above you,

then birds will find it first.

 

If you think it is in the ocean,

then fish will discover it before you do.

 

Look…. the Kingdom of God

is within you and all around you.

 

The Gospel of Thomas

 

Seeking within, you will find stillness.

Here there is no more fear or attachment-

only joy.

The mountain is the mountain

And the Way is the same as of old.

Verily what is changed is my own heart.

To know the way,
we go the way,
we do the way.
The way we do,
the things we do,
it’s all there in front of you.
But if you try too hard to see it,
you’ll only become confused.
I am me and you are you.
As you can see;
but when you do
the things that you can do,
you will find the way.
The way will follow you.

Therefore, the truly great man,

although he does not injure others,

does not credit himself with charity and mercy

( these are natural to him. )

He does not seek gain,

but does not despise his followers who do.

He struggles not for wealth,

but does not take credit for leaving it alone…

The ranks and emoluments of the world

are to him no cause for joy,

its punishments and shame no cause for disgrace.

Chuang Tzu

Being is an aspect of non-being;
non-being is no different from being.
Until you understand this truth,
you won’t see anything clearly.
One is all; all are one. When
you realize this, what reason for holiness or wisdom?
The mind of absolute trust
is beyond all thought, all striving,
is perfectly at peace; for in it
there is no yesterday,
no tomorrow,
no today.

January 4 ice 018The key to growth
is the introduction
of higher dimensions
of consciousness
into our awareness.

For the wise man
looks into space
and he knows
there is no limited dimensions.
