16) THE STILL POINT

When the chatter of our mind quiets down,
we find the still point
around which all of life revolves.
From this still point we watch everything
come and go in perfect peace.

Everything that is, was, or ever will be
has a common source from which it comes,
in which it lives,
and to which it returns.

Understanding this coming and going,
we return to our source and our confusion ends.
Not understanding this, we remain confused
and bring about great suffering.

Living at the still point, we are open to all of life.
Open to all of life, we don’t judge anything.
Not judging, we see with compassion.
Seeing with compassion,
we discover our true nature.
Discovering our true nature,
we are at home
and nothing in life disturbs us.

☎️ Rumi Quotes


Stacks Image 1615
When we see the world through our thoughts, we stop experiencing life as it really is and others as they really are. When I have a thought about you, that’s something I’ve created. I’ve turned you into an idea. In a certain sense, if I have an idea about you that I believe, I’ve degraded you. I’ve made you into something very small. This is the way of human beings, this is what we do to each other.

To love is to recognize yourself in another. The other's "otherness" then stands revealed as an illusion pertaining to the purely human realm., the realm of form.

“The simplest spiritual discipline is some degree of solitude and silence. But it's the hardest, because none of us want to be with someone we don't love. Besides that, we invariably feel bored with ourselves, and all of our loneliness comes to the surface. We won't have the courage to go into that terrifying place without Love to protect us and lead us, without the light and love of God overriding our own self-doubt. Such silence is the most spacious and empowering technique in the world, yet it's not a technique at all. It's precisely the refusal of all technique.”

“For every individual is a unique manifestation of the Whole, as every branch is a particular outreaching of the tree. To manifest individuality, every branch must have a sensitive connection with the tree, just as our independently moving and differentiated fingers must have a sensitive connection with the whole body. The point, which can hardly be repeated too often, is that differentiation is not separation.”

“There is almost a sensual longing for communion with others who have a large vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendship between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality impossible to describe.”
