contemplation

Attend to the silence around and within you.

Follow where it leads,

Silence is the home of Self-knowledge.

To desire is to court suffering.

To let go is to pave the way for Self-knowledge.

Let go,

End suffering,

Know your Self.

There is a Guru of gurus you must meet.

Go silently.

Stand in the seat between your eyebrows,

Or the one in your heart.

With eyes close, allow your vision to guide you.

Stay there.

The Guru will appear.

Peace comes from repeated visits to your inner world;

Unconditional, infinite Love is experienced by knowing who lives there;

And everlasting joy comes when you take up residence there.

The Self is the key that unlocks the door to infinite Love.

That key lies at the depths of your heart.

Be still. Close your eyes. Search for it.

In your searching, it will come to you.

You want to know what you are? To find the Self?

Let everything go:

Fullness and emptiness,

God and no-God,

Self and no-self,

Inner and outer,

Good and evil,

Pain and pleasure,

You and me,

Past and Future.

See what remains.
