I keep looking for one more teacher, only to find that fish learn from the water and birds learn from the sky…

The seeker is he who is in search of himself.
Give up all questions except one: ‘Who am I?’ After all, the only fact you are sure of is that you are. The ‘I am’ is certain. The ‘I am this’ is not. Struggle to find out what you are in reality.
To know what you are, you must first investigate and know what you are not.
Discover all that you are not – body, feelings thoughts, time, space, this or that – nothing, concrete or abstract, which you perceive can be you. The very act of perceiving shows that you are not what you perceive.
The clearer you understand on the level of mind you can be described in negative terms only, the quicker will you come to the end of your search and realise that you are the limitless being.
~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Life is a celebration of existence and its cosmic rhythm. Love is the pulsation of that rhythm underlying all existence. Love unites us with the all-inclusiveness of existence and we become an integral and intimate part of one whole which is tremendously beautiful and existential. Love is a matter of heart. Mind is cold and analytical.
The golden rays of the rising sun, the soothing white pool of moonlight,the twinkle of stars in the blue sky, the sudden appearance of a rainbow after a cooling rain shower, and the invisible touches of a moist breeze on the beach makes us feel ecstatic and overflowing with a feeling of love and we get a spontaneous connection with nature or the divine. For an open heart all is possible!
