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.

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

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.

In searching for “who am I?” there’s no possibility of discovering who, but I can come to the reality of I am. In the taste of I am, the question of who is also answered.

Every moment is an eternal moment. Eternal means the connection between beginningless and endless. It’s not a fixed thing, it’s a process. Process always means movement—it either descends or ascends.

You cannot know yourself by trying to “get it,” because you cannot put yourself inside your mind. The self which you “know” cannot be you, because you are a combination of is and is not, always together. If you get stuck in the is aspect, it’s not you, because you’ve left out is not.

That which exists ceaselessly emanates the joy of Existence, balance and harmony, wisdom and connectedness. It is not related to the word “was” or the words “will be.” Only to is. It is free from the words “good” and “bad.” It’s free from “real” and “unreal.” It is always and everywhere the essential nature of all things, and therefore maintains the unity and harmony of the entirety.

If I think that joy or wisdom or aliveness comes from what I do and what others do, I’m on the wrong track. From that one misconception, I start to believe that this world and everything outside of me are here to make me happy.

If you suffer for the suffering of the world, you only increase the quantity of suffering. What is needed is to understand it. The more you understand, the less you suffer.

The meaning of science and the meaning of religion have to become one in order for us to receive the truth in them. What can make these two into one? You, yourself. All the conflicts and contradictions have to get solved in you.

When you formulate about reality, it’s about reality, not reality itself. It’s the story of the real.

You can’t experience life in your thoughts. You can only think about life. You can choose to think about anything you want, but it won’t bring you the taste of that thing.

When you move your hand, what’s happening? Awareness is manifesting, but you are asleep.
