When you live in surrender, something comes through you into the world of duality that is not of this world.

As long as you are unable to access the power of the Now, every emotional pain that you experience leaves behind a residue of pain that lives on in you.

Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.

Awareness is the greatest agent for change.

Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to “die before you die” —  and find that there is no death.

Teachings

Being aware of the present moment is a way of not being caught up in thoughts of the past and future.The present is the gateway to a heightened sense of peace.  “Being in the now” brings about an awareness that is beyond the mind, an awareness which helps in transcending the ego.  If you are present, you recognize yourself as the space of consciousness in which the thought or impulse arises, you don’t lose yourself in thought, you don’t become the impulse. Being present is being the space, rather than what happens.

“Pain-body” is the emotional component of ego; is created by the cumulation of suppressed emotions, the suffering of non-acceptance of what is.It distract people from their present experience of the world. It is the feeding of the human ego, that is thought to be the source of inner and outer conflict.

Love comes into existence  when you know who you are in your essence and then recognize the “other” as yourself. It is the end of the delusion of separation, which is created by excessive reliance on thinking.

Our true “identity” is the underlying sense of I Am, which is consciousness itself. Awareness of Being is self-realization and true happiness.

We humans are very important, because we are here to enable the divine purpose of the universe to unfold.

We should use the mind as a tool, and not let the mind to use us.
