"Complaint is only possible when you're living in the suburbs of God."
- Daniel Ladinsky, 'The Gift: Poems by Hafiz, The Great Sufi Master
"To whom does this thought come?"
- Ramana Maharshi
"See what you're doing now. You're thinking. That spoils it. Learn to stay without thought. Even if for a few seconds. It's hard isn't it? This is the reason you have to ask yourself, 'To whom do these thoughts come?' It's only a modality to cause you to stop thinking."
"You cannot see anyone, the face of God is all that shines. The Soul of God looks out through all eyes."
- Joel Goldsmith
"None but ourselves can free our minds."
View your mind like traffic that has nothing to do with you. Traffic that's on the other side of the road. The kind of traffic that makes you say, 'whooo! Glad I'm not going that way!" Don't get involved with it. You're not stuck in it. You're simply watching it.
Every time a thought approaches, ask yourself, 'to whom does this thought come?' And pause... listen. The answer is the silence. The mind stops and leaves you in the remembrance, in the recognition that you were never out of Love... you weren't living in the outskirts of the Kingdom. YOU ARE THE KINGDOM. You're Home, in the City of God. And as long as you're feeling Love inside of you, you'll be consciously aware of Love manifest all around you... as you.
I Love you,
