Today where I am  in my part of the world is a beautiful sunny spring day and the birds are singing as I watch the squirrels in my garden playing and retrieving nuts they have buried.  The daffodils are blooming with their very bright yellow siren like statements of their right to reach for the sun and establish the message that spring is here.  The buds are forming on the trees and shrubs and the garden furniture invites me to come and sit with them.

  As I look at this freedom of nature to grow and blossom as She sees fit, I contemplate my own sense of freedom to be me and I think about what is needing to be pruned back to reveal my own inner beauty and joy as I too reach for the suns rays  of my soul.


"By your nature you are free; you have forgotten yourself in your state of slavery. A king may fall asleep and find himself a beggar; he may dream that he is a beggar, but that can in no way interfere with his real sovereignty."

Realize, realize that you are the Infinity within. Know that. The very moment that a person knows himself to be that, the very moment that a man realizes his true nature, he is free, above all danger, above all difficulty, above all suffering, above all tribulation and pain. Know that, be yourself!
Swami RamTirth


"Do not nourish the ideas you have built around yourself nor the image people have of you. Be neither someone nor something, just don’t play the game. This will bring about being, constant awareness."
Jean Klein



"The moment of awakening may be marked
by an outburst of laughter,
but this is not the laughter of someone
who has won the lottery or some kind of victory.
It is the laughter of one who,
after searching for something for a long time,
suddenly finds it in the pocket of his coat."
Thich Nhat Hanh


"I am a traveller in my soul,
And free from all belongings:
Nowhere I belong,
I am time,
I am freedom."
Mahmud Kianush

Stop worrying about your identity and concern yourself with the people you care about, ideas that matter to you, beliefs you can stand by, tickets you can run on. Intelligent humans make those choices with their brain and hearts and they make them alone. The world does not deliver meaning to you. You have to make it meaningful…and decide what you want and need and must do. It’s a tough, unimaginably lonely and complicated way to be in the world. But that’s the deal: you have to live; you can’t live by slogans, dead ideas, clichés, or national flags. Finding an identity is easy. It’s the easy way out.

- Zadie Smith

"It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days, such a humorless little prig. Lightly, lightly – it’s the best advice ever given me. When it comes to dying even. Nothing ponderous, or portentous, or emphatic. No rhetoric, no tremolos, no self conscious persona putting on its celebrated imitation of Christ or Little Nell. And of course, no theology, no metaphysics. Just the fact of dying and the fact of the clear light. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly my darling, on tiptoes and no luggage, not even a sponge bag, completely unencumbered."
Aldous Huxley,
