“Where your attention goes, your time goes.”Idowu Koyenikan
So my challenge to you is what if you didn’t have to do anything about anything, at all? Nothing at all to do, nothing at all to do about anything. Yes, make a cup of tea, because that doesn’t give you any trouble; whatever it is you have to do…, but it’s not accompanied by this idea that ‘There is something I need to do to be stable in the Awareness’ …because I tell you, that is a trap! Forget about it. If you touch this idea, you believe it instantly into existence; and then you have to believe another idea to remove it. So why not drop both ideas in the first place, and stay where You Are? You are simply Here in which all that arises for You, including the sense of spirituality…, forget about spirituality then. Forget about enlightenment. And forget about ‘you’ also. And what remains here? That which cannot be gotten rid of remains. It’s just that. Simpler than simple.Mooji
” In the ordinary man, when a thought occurs, the ego takes delivery of it as ‘my thought’ and gets involved. In the Enlightened sage, when a thought arises, witnessing happens, and involvement with the thought does not take place.”Ramana Maharshi
No thought has any power. You have power. And when you identify and believe in the thought you give power to the thought.
When the thought has no customers, the thought vanishes.
Desire is merely the fixation of the mind on an idea. Get it out of its groove by denying it attention.
Whatever decision we think we are making is actually being made for us, because the decision is the end result of a thought and we have no control over the arising of the thought.
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
