Why not the real itself?

By itself nothing has existence. Everything needs its own absence. To be, is to be distinguishable, to be here and not there, to be now and not then, to be thus and not otherwise. Like water is shaped by the container, so is everything determined by conditions (gunas). As water remains water regardless of the vessels, as light remains itself regardless of the colours it brings out, so does the real remain real, regardless of conditions in which it is reflected. Why keep the reflection only in the focus of consciousness? Why not the real itself?

-Nisargadatta Maharaj

 

Look for the good in everything

“I have noticed that people are dealing too much with the negative, with what is wrong… Why not try the other way, to look into the patient and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom?”

~Thich Nhat Hanh~

Thanks Thich Nhat Hanh. And thanks Tao and Zen FB for posting this.

Look for the good in everything, always. What you “emote” you create and bring forward in your life.
Your current daily emotional state is the indicator of what you have been vibrating earlier and what you are going to get in your future.

 

The Great Illusion of Reality – Reality is an Illusion

“You are an aperture through which the universe is looking at and exploring itself”

“What you call the external world, is as much you as your own body. Your skin doesn’t separate you from the world, it’s a bridge, through which the external world flows into you, and you flow into it.”

-Alan Watts
