Glowing knowing

"My teachings are easy to understand

and easy to put into practice.

Yet your intellect will never grasp them,

and if you try to practice them, you will fail"

Lao-tzu, Tao Te Ching

 

"The Self is taintless, beyond space,

unborn, vast, and immovable.

Let a wise aspirant directly realize this insight,

not just reflect on tiresome words."

Brihadâranyaka Upanishad

(nearly 3000 years old)

 

 

Beyond

 

all shallow words

 

the timeless fire is burning

 

All trying

 

is

 

dying

 

into the silent knowing

 

that was always glowing

 

here
