How to achieve dogness (or, God-ness).

Via on Jul 30, 2011

Stop chasing your tail.

“God neither heeds nor needs vigils, fasting, prayer, and all forms of mortification in contrast to repose. God needs nothing more than for us to offer him a quiet heart. Then he accomplishes in the soul such secrets and divine deeds that no creature can serve them or even add to them…The divine nature is repose and God seeks to draw all creatures with him back again to their origin which is repose.”–Meister Eckhart

Just STOP.

Adyashanti explains why the chase is a waste.

    Now I know why I've always been a good dog …
    It's good to know in that way, I have already arrived at enlightenment … my own version of it, anyhow …
    And purusha and prakriti — undivided at last …
