Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. ~Rumi
The “I” thought is said to be the sum total of all thoughts. The source of the “I” thought has to be inquired into. ~Ramana Maharshi
“From all that was familiar,
I broke away
Now I am lost, without a place, wandering.
With no music like a fool I dance
and clap my hands.
How am I to live without You?
You are everywhere but
I cannot see you.”
“Realization is to get rid of the delusion that you have not realized…
Realization is our true nature. It is nothing new to be gained. What is new cannot be eternal. Therefore there is no need to be doubting whether we would gain or lose the self.” ~ Sri Ramana Maharshi
