center of eternity…

Quote

stand still

I have thrown from me the whirling dance of mind
And stand now in the spirit’s silence free,
Timeless and deathless beyond creature-kind,
The center of my own eternity.

I have escaped and the small self is dead;
I am immortal, alone, ineffable;
I have gone out from the universe I made,
And have grown nameless and immeasurable.

My mind is hushed in a wide and endless light,
My heart a solitude of delight and peace,
My sense unsnared by touch and sound and sight,
My body a point in white infinities.

I am the one Being’s sole immobile Bliss:
No one I am, I who am all that is…

~ Liberation, Aurobindo Ghose

when you open…

Quote

just a moment...

When you open yourself to the continually changing, impermanent, dynamic nature of your own being. You’re able to keep your eyes open, your heart open, and your mind open, you begin to think of your life as offering endless opportunities to start to do things differently.

~ Pema Chödron
