Sue at My Loud Bipolar Whispers nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. This morning, I was thinking to myself about getting rid of this blog.

At first, I thought meditation was going to cure me and solve all of my problems. I still don't know if the struggles I have are chemical or situational in nature. I suspect both. I think society, materialism, and our chattering monkey brains are contributing to the rising diagnoses for depression, anxiety, ADHD, and bipolar. I... Continue Reading →

To add to Philip’s wisdom, a zen poem, “When you speak, it is silent. When you are silent, it speaks.”
It is extremely difficult to control the thoughts that arise in the mind. Proper control can only be attained with a stilled mind. Hence, it is true what the wise men and women say: “You are what you think”. If you constantly allow illusory thoughts to be in control of your mind, you remain in the prison of the body without the hope or vision of ever transcending these.

Dearest among friends, how is supreme wisdom to be achieved, detached acquired and Self-Liberation attained?
To be truly free, transcend the perceptions of the five senses like poison. Also, focus your attention and energies on forgiveness, sincerity, loving-kindness, authentic simplicity and Truth.
Liberation is to know yourself as pure Awareness alone – the witness of all that happens within and without of yourself. Thusly, abide in Awareness as without the blemish of the illusion of the Ego and you will be instantly Free and at Peace.
Transcend the perception of belonging to a certain class, race or group since You – the Soul – are invisible, unattached and without form. You are above all these – the witness of all things. Be happy and joyful.
True Enlightenment is beyond mere morality and other societal conditionings. Therefore, realize that right and wrong, pleasure and pain exist in mind only. These should…
