The fire of freedom
"If you want to be free, live in the realm of the unknown,
You enslave your Self when you live in the realm of the known.
Liberation comes when you slip out of bondage into the unknown.
You will know you're in the unknown because you will feel wonder.
It cannot be faked."
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
"I am not seen but am the seer,
I am not heard but am the hearer.
I am not thought of but am the thinker,
never known but the knower, I am your self,
your inner director, your immortal one.
I am always and never all the time."
The wonder known in not knowing
freedom from the known
the magic fire of life itself
by heat and flames
untouched by shallow names
the silent knowing
of all that is coming and going
