Being Aware of Being Aware The Essence of Meditation SeriesSahaja #ad - It is in this experience that the peace, happiness and love for which all people long reside.

This overlooking of our own being is the ultimate cause of unhappiness. This obvious, therefore, familiar and intimate experience has no objective qualities and is, overlooked or ignored by the majority of people.
Being Aware of Being Aware The Essence of Meditation Series #ad - The happiness we have sought so long outside of ourselves, in situations, objects and relationships, turns out to be always present and available in the simple knowing of our own being as it truly is.

The Nature of Consciousness: Essays on the Unity of Mind and Matter #ad - However, as such, the nature of consciousness will clearly show that the materialist paradigm is a philosophy of despair and, the root cause of unhappiness in individuals. New harbinger. This is the fundamental presumption of mind and matter that underpins almost all our thoughts and feelings and is expressed in our activities and relationships.
The nature of consciousness suggests that the matter model has outlived its function and is now destroying the very values it once sought to promote. For many people, the debate as to the ultimate reality of the universe is an academic one, far removed from the concerns and demands of everyday life.

Presence, Volume II: The Intimacy of All ExperienceSahaja #ad - This intimacy, in which there is no room for selves, or others, objects, is love itself.
