The Innermost Light

“The innermost light, 
shining peacefully 
and timelessly 
in the heart, 
is the real Guru. 
All others merely show the way.”

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj

Beauty in Essence

Without experiencing the essence there is no beauty. 
Beauty is not merely in the outward things 
or in inward thoughts, feelings and ideas; 
there is beauty beyond this thought and feeling. 
It’s this essence that is beauty.

~ J. Krishnamurti

This article is the first that appears in a new category called ‘Beauty in Essence’. This is the place to share a photo or a work of art as the main feature. A very short poem or quote will be accompanying it…

The Flower of Awareness

Awareness is like a flower
Always fresh and present and vibrant
In the morning mist of mind

It awakens to us every moment
Bending its fragrance and petals
To what we think is blurred for a time

Its fragility is an illusory one
For it is the only sharp thing we have
The indestructible ground of living

And in front of such shining beauty
What was once a so familiar scenery
Dissolves and fades like dust in the wind
