Taste is the only thing that has both aspects of Existence in it—personal and impersonal.

Existence has one unified purpose. No part can have a purpose separate from the purpose of the whole.

We have to practice body-mind connection. Work with it. Keep going with it and you gradually discover a new way of studying, a new way of relating, a new way of connecting.

Ordinarily, when we look at something that seems “not so good,” we want to make it good. We create imbalance, because we swing between good and bad, and we miss the middle. But Conscious energy is steady and doesn’t miss the middle. The middle is the interconnectedness of all aspects.

As long as you think you are this body and this name, your eyes are closed to reality. When you come to the body, when you actually know you have a body, you know you are not this name, not this body. Then what are you?

The whole is not a collection of all the parts. The whole is independent of the parts. The parts exist because of the whole. But the whole does not exist because of the parts.

You may at times ask yourself, “How can God, Absolute Awareness, find me among the seven billion other people and let me know what I’m supposed to do?” We were given that knowledge at the very beginning. The Absolute is not separate from the life you call you. It’s all that exists. It’s very simple.

A man found a gold coin and put it in his pocket. After a little while, he doubted that he had really found a gold coin. He put his hand in his pocket, but it wasn’t there. He did it again—still not there. He kept on doing that, until a passerby said, “What’s the problem?”

Understanding is prior to words, prior to knowledge. Understanding has to first be there, then I can manifest it, and then it could be helpful to others. But if it’s not there, whatever I say is just information. Understanding starts with the unification of body, mind, and feelings.

In your ordinary, mechanical level of consciousness, you can’t really say, “I exist,” because when you say “I,” you are referring to the fragmented aspect of yourself, to your name and your body.

When you look at things with your mind, that is, when thought looks, it’s as though everything is covered by a veil. Then you aren’t seeing things as they are—you see your interpretation of the veil which covers them.

This body sitting here—some years from now it will go back to the soil. But taste is deposited in our Being-understanding.

Harmony comes from our eternal aspect. Nothing fragmented or temporary can have harmony.

The taste of there is a body is in a dimension above thought. It’s knowing without thought.

The most important thing is to have a direction. And fortunately, the direction is simple. To get from here to there looks very complicated—until you take a step. Once you are on your way, it’s not complicated. The first step is to have a good relationship to your body.

To understand that [which we call our body], you first have to come to this—what you see doesn’t really exist as a separate phenomenon. The observable doesn’t exist the way you perceive it. You don’t exist as you take yourself to be.

The physical object that we see with our eyes and call our body is in the cycle of birth and death. It is “born to die.” But the cycle of birth and death is not the cycle of Existence. Birth and death are like ripples on the surface of the ocean.

As long as you look at your body as that object you see in the mirror, or as what they taught you in school about physiology or anatomy, you’ll never understand it. All that is about the body, but not what the body is.

Harmony with Existence means having a correct relationship to the Source. From there comes a correct relationship to your body, to humanity, to the planet, to your environment, to what you eat, to what you think, to what you feel, to what you manifest.

What does health actually mean? Health means harmony with Existence. You could be sick, you could be injured, you could have a lot of problems with your body, but be healthy. Because the sickness itself is not the problem. Identification with that is your problem.

The mind flies all over, but it doesn’t enter into your consciousness. It stays in the periphery, and tries to interpret consciousness through thought. But that’s just thought, not consciousness. To be Conscious means to be free from thought.

When body, mind, and feelings are connected and remain connected, your level of consciousness changes. In the dimension where body, mind, and feelings are understood as what they really are, your fixed concepts disappear.

What’s conditioned or crystallized in time is also subject to being decrystallized in time. But the time it takes for something to be decrystallized may be millions of years. We have only seventy or eighty years on this Earth. What should we do while we are here?

Not forgetting where you were supports you to go where you wish to go. If a mountain climber concerns himself only with the peak, he gets discouraged because he’s a long way from it. But each time he’s about to get discouraged, he looks down to see where he was, how far he has come, and he gets energy.

Something in your mind is bothering you. Your father did such and such, or your mother said this or that. But what did they do? Isn’t what’s bothering you in your own mind? To forgive means to rise above the dimension of the mind.

Nothing can be given a static, limited meaning. Nothing could be “this.” Because “this” means something which always stays as it is. Even a concrete wall or an iron post can’t be called “this,” because they are subject to decomposition over time.

What I see of myself in acceptance doesn’t create a problem for me, because that which accepts is always a degree higher than that which is seen and accepted. That’s why I don’t need to try to fix what I see.

Entering into our life, day by day we find ourselves being bombarded by the events of life, by the effects of our own thoughts, feelings, sensations, by the requirements of this life: earning money, paying the bills, taking care of our relationships.

Everything can be questioned by the mind, except reality itself. In the moment of receptivity to the real, the questioner is dissolved in the Beingness of the moment. The inquiring mind, the mind in search, is a good instrument to serve us in coming closer and closer to who we really are.
