It’s simple to have the sense “I forgive you”, but it’s another thing to have the sense, “I forgive you for not being the person I wanted you to be.” ~Adyashanti
“You don’t want… until it’s too late, and then you want. And of course, you’re miserable both times. Just let go of both wanting and not wanting, and you will experience peaceful contentment like the flower in the field.” ~Tenzin Jampa
When you wake up in the morning, have as your first thought, that you are alive. Then, you will automatically associate the thought you are grateful because you are alive in your subconsciousness, and always have a background radiation of calm and serenity, and the holy sacred.
It is when you just stare into whatever is in front of you, and have no attachment with it whatsoever. There is absolutely no thought, no feeling, no emotion, yet a very calm serene solitude in contentment. It’s like a sun star that is simply brilliantly giving off life giving light and heat into the universe, creating all life on planet Earth, for example.
Ramana Maharshi’s way was pointing out that there is no doer. It is also the same as what Mooji would point to as the awareness behind the mind. Who is the seer, can the seen be the same as the seer? Adyashanti says enlightment is extraordinarily unremarkable and just completely as it is right now. Eckhart Tolle says just be here in the Present moment stillness of the here now beingness, the isness. Mooji says, even the non-beingness is also observed, so just stay in the state of pure being sacred holiness, the one divine presence. These people are proof of the continuing evolution of the human potential and consciousness as a species.

“There’s only one thing better than getting what you want: it’s to know that you can be happy whether you get it or not.” -Adyashanti
“Success is not a simple matter; it cannot be determined merely by the amount of money and material possessions you have. The meaning of success goes far deeper. It can only be measured by the extent to which your inner peace and mental control enable you to be happy under all circumstances. That is real success.” -Paramahansa Yogananda
