Non Seeking

“There is no greater mystery than this, that we keep seeking reality though in fact we are reality. We think that there is something hiding reality and that this must be destroyed before reality is gained. How ridiculous! A day will dawn when you will laugh at your past efforts.” –Ramana Maharshi
 

 
How to turn the mind from seeking to non-seeking? The mind then says, “Now I desire the state of desirelessness.” The seeking has entered again, the desire has come again through the back door. Because of this, Shiva proceeds immediately with no introduction whatsoever. He immediately starts talking about techniques. Those techniques, if followed, suddenly turn your mind: it comes to the present. And when the mind comes to the present it stops. You attain to no-mind. –Osho
 
 
“The conception that there is a goal and a path to it is wrong. We are the goal or peace always. To get rid of the notion that we are not peace is all that is required.” – Ramana Maharshi

  2. IT is nice to be so if those you live with have the same attitude too …

    but if you are the only one with that attitude among others, you tend to fall into depression soon, esp if you are female ! It is difficult to be at peace when you are female and living with people with expectations

  5. So it all comes down to living in the moment, right?

    My Thoughts and I

    • The simple answer is yes. But if you dig deeper, it is the other way round:
      There is nothing peculiar in the present event to make it different from the past and future. For a moment the past was actual and the future will become so. What makes the present so different? Obviously, my presence. I am real for I am always now, in the present, and what is with me now shares in my reality. A thing focused in the now is with me, for I am ever present; it is my own reality that I impart to the present event.
