Mudra and Body Prayer

"So many saints say that when you are ripe and ready, you will realize. Their words may be true, but they are of little use. There must be a way out, independent of ripening which needs time, of sadhana [spiritual practice] which needs effort.

Don't call it a way; it is more a kind of skill. It is not even that. Stay open and quiet, that is all. What you seek is so near you that there is no place for a way."

- Sri Nisargadatta

“All I ask is that you step with me into the boundlessness, where constancy, quietude and peace, infinite emptiness reign. And just imagine, in this infinite sonorous silence, everywhere is an impenetrable darkness.”

Quote: Werckmeister Harmóniák. 2000. Béla Tarr

 

**

“This I know. That the only way to live is like the rose which lives without a why.

You might ask yourself over a period of a thousand years the following question: ‘Why are you alive?’ And still the only response you would recieve would be: ‘I live so that I may live.’

Why does this happen?

Because life rises from it’s own foundation and rises out of itself. Therefore, life lives without a reason—life lives for itself.”

—Meister Eckhart
