Guru Poornima Blessings

Wished so much to be at Thiruvannamalai today, Arunachala

To circumbulate you under moonlight

With your immense grace, you smiled at me as full moon even in cloudy sky here today

With more grace, you poured upon bliss of your eternal presence in my heart

In your grace, time and space disappear

Oh Arunachala, my dearest lord, pranams

Arunachala Siva Arunachala Siva Arunachala Siva Arunachala…

Arunachala Siva Arunachala Siva Arunachala Siva Arunachala…

With our beloved lord always in our hearts

Tathata – Suchness

From the inspiring blessed author George Wahl

Mystic Morning Blog

Tathātā

Tathātā (/ˌtætəˈtɑː/; Sanskrit romanised: tathātā; Pali romanised: tathatā) is a Buddhist term variously translated as “thusness” or “suchness” and meaning the true, concrete essence or nature of things beyond ideas or words. It is a central concept in Mahayana Buddhism, having a particular significance in Chan Buddhism as well. The synonym dharmatā is also often used.

Beyond ideas and words….

Cast both of these aside

As they only interfere

They mask

They delude

They misinform

They distract from what is real

from what is immediate

from the present moment

For in suchness lies beingness

Simply being in the here and now

Rest in the isness

See with a fresh set of eyes

No ideas, no words

No images

Nothing

Such is suchness

Such is your true nature

And in this suchness lies the peace you seek

Stay in Bliss

Close the doors of senses

Take a breath

Reach within the heart

See the light which lightens everything

Stay still

Let the thoughts flow like leaves in running water

They may come like big logs of wood too

Let them go, do not go behind them

Whatever they are,

Unless you give them power, none of them affect you

Stay still

Let the ego of individual self dissolve in eternal light of bliss

Here remains bliss only

Be the bliss by experiencing bliss

The doors of eternal bliss are open to all

To all those who are ready to look within

Except the willingness to stay still, nothing else is needed

Do not waste a second

Just this moment, this very moment,

Look within the sanctum of heart

Dissolve in the light of bliss dear one 🙂

Dance of Fireflies

Sweet little ones dancing in dark

Smiling at me

To draw my attention, a darling one came near me

Followed it’s path with eyes, I saw their dance

Just two stars in sky, cool breeze, and dancing fireflies

Thanks beloved lord for this beautiful night 😊

Thank you fireflies for the dance party ❤

Recognize the Treasure

The blissful silent presence

Effulgent ever

We all possess in our hearts

The only possession we have as we ourselves as that

Rest all are different coloured paintings on this mirror

Which will be washed off by the tide of time

Recognize this treasure which nothing could take away from us

Watch at the mirror of consciousness without thoughts

At least in the silence of night or at the moment of wakeup,

Dissolve into that mirror by just looking at it

And experience the richness of limitless bliss 🙂

CONFESSION

At this moment, I just feel to do this

Before my dears, I am confessing from my heart…

After being silently observing and giving chances and seeing no change in the behaviour of some people, I have blocked them from my life completely and very few partially. I may continue to do so until I learn to stay unaffected by anything or anyone. I hold certain values very strongly – like authenticity, sincerity, openness, honesty, self-responsibility, and no gossip talks about anyone. Compromising these values for anyone put me in lots of stress and I decided not to compromise these values for anyone even though they are very much dear to me. Yes, I feel much sadness in doing so, but I do so without hating anyone. I talk openly and tell them what I could not compromise and after seeing no change, I accept the person as it is without expecting a change in them. Those particular things may be right for them and they do not find anything wrong in their behaviour and may be absolutely fine with it. Let it be. I respect that. Initially, I feel pain in heart to move away, but also I do not feel to lose peace of mind, time, and energy for such behaviours and I just move away without any arguments. It’s ok you can judge me like whatever you wish to. I learnt not to care such judgements.

Even though I move away from them physically, in my heart, I hold them dear and pray for their good and sometimes think about the good memories I had with them. Thus, slowly I come out of the grief I feel by parting from them.

Now, more and more, I am enjoying solitude and silence and feels it is important to me like breathing 🙂

Precious is Each Moment 😊

Each moment of human life is precious

As we continue living by giving and taking in earth,

Be aware of the permanent and impermanent

Choose wisely the time and energy spend on them

Be brave and try different things and choose the best which suits you

For the path of each is unique and beautiful

Have a collection of different feathers of experiences,

For experiences are the wealth we can earn for ourselves

Clease the mind each day off all influences

Have a dip in the purest ocean of being in silence and solitude

Be ready to face each moment with curiosity and a smile on face

For each moment is new and holds the power of bliss

Blessed moments dear all 😊
