"Accumulate! Accumulate!" - The cry of the personality mechanism.
Only the fool
Seeks to stop
The shaking of
The moon’s reflection on the water.
The acceptance of what
Cannot be changed
Paves the way to
Wu Hsin (from The Lost Writings, p. 37)
"However great your knowledge;
If your ego is not removed,
you remain in delusion."
Mooji (via tobiji)
Now.. If only there was an ‘ego’ to find in direct experience..
"I don’t think you really understand the purpose of my dialogues here. I don’t say things simply to convince people that they are true. I am not speaking about these matters so that people can build up a philosophy that can be rationally defended, and which is free of all contradictions. When I speak my words, I am not speaking to your mind at all. I am directing my words directly at consciousness. I am planting my words in your consciousness. If you disturb the planting process by arguing about the meaning of the words, they won’t take root there. Once my words have been planted in consciousness, they will sprout, they will grow, and at the appropriate moment they will bear fruit. It’s nothing to do with you. All this will happen by itself. However, if you think about the words too much or dispute their meaning, you will postpone the moment of their fruition. Enough talking. Be quiet and let the words do their work!"
"We do not possess an “ego”. We are possessed by the idea of one."
"Imagine if one day your mirror image started to believe that it is separate and independent from you. That is what you are doing right now."
"Need there be purpose — if there is no choice?"
