"Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That's its balance.

ENLIGHTENMENT IS NOT AN EXPERIENCE

"One of the most fundamental things to be remembered not only by you but by everyone is that whatever you come across in your inner journey, you are not it.

"You are the one who is witnessing it. It may be nothingness, it may be blissfulness, it may be silence, but one thing has to be remembered: however beautiful and however enchanting an experience you come across, you are not it. You are the one who is experiencing it. And if you go on and on and on, the ultimate in the journey is the point when there is no experience left neither silence, nor blissfulness, nor nothingness. There is nothing as an object for you, but only your subjectivity.

"The mirror is empty; it is not reflecting anything. It is you.

"Even great travelers of the inner world have got stuck in beautiful experiences, and have become identified with those experiences, thinking, "I have found myself." They have stopped before reaching the final stage where all experiences disappear. Enlightenment is not an experience."

The Seeker Is the Sought

"Man is almost mad mad because he is seeking something which he has already got; mad because he's not aware of who he is; mad because he hopes, desires and then ultimately, feels frustrated. Frustration is bound to be there because you cannot find yourself by seeking; you are already there. The seeking has to stop, the search has to drop: that is the greatest problem to be faced, encountered.

"The problem is that you have something and you are seeking it. Now, how can you find it? You are too occupied with seeking, and you cannot see the thing that you already have. Unless all seeking stops, you will not be able to see it. Seeking makes your mind focus somewhere in the future, and the thing that you are seeking is already here, now, this very moment. That which you are seeking is hidden in the seeker himself: the seeker is the sought; hence, so much neurosis, so much madness."

Buddha declared before his death that he would be coming again after twenty-five centuries, and that his name would be Maitreya. Maitreya means the friend. Buddhas don't come back; no enlightened person ever comes back, so it is just a way of saying... What he was saying is of tremendous importance. It has nothing to do with his coming back; he cannot come back. What he meant was that the ancient relationship between the Master and the disciple would become irrelevant in twenty-five centuries. It was his clarity of perception he was not predicting anything just his clarity to see that as things are changing, as they have changed in the past and as they go on changing, it would take at least twenty-five centuries for the Master and disciple relationship to become out of date. Then the enlightened Master will be only the friend. I had always wanted not to be a Master to anybody. But people want a Master, they want to be disciples; hence, I played the role. It is time that I should say to you that now many of you are ready to accept me as the friend. Those who are in tune with me continuously, without any break, are the only real friends...

'One has to reach to the absolute state of awareness: that is Zen. You cannot do it every morning for a few minutes or for half an hour and then forget all about it. It has to become like your heartbeat. You have to sit in it, you have to walk in it. Yes, you have even to sleep in it.'

Peaceful truths that inspire... will never, ever, ever be found here in this nest of trolls and haven for the mentally damaged. Topix is the equivalent of a toddler run over in the street -- horrifying, tragic, and yet a spectacle you can't look away from.

"The real seeker of truth never seeks truth. On the contrary, he tries to clean himself of all that is untrue, inauthentic, insincere - and when his heart is ready, purified, the Guest comes. You cannot find the Guest, you cannot go after him. He comes to you; you just have to be prepared. You have to be in a right attitude."

"This is what enlightenment is all about - a deep understanding that there is no problem. Then, with no problem to solve, what will you do? Immediately you start living. You will eat, you will sleep, you will love, you will work, you will have a chit-chat, you will sing, you will dance - what else is there to do?"

Well spoken for a sinner who sets himself up with Adultfriendfinder profile so he can sneak around on his poor wife. Yakity yakity yak Jesus Christ is D E A D! For that matter any mention of a Lord over members of a democratic society is repugnant. Christians have gotten it all wrong to wit, JC was just an ordinary Buddha who came to this earth to give us freedom not enslave us to no damn religion. Anyhow, you're a lying putz.
