Hailstones (a retweeter)

On the dark blue waters of ten thousand waves, one white swan.

To seek earnestly to know one's real nature--this is said to be devotion. ~Shankara

Ego is nothing other than a thought; there is nothing inherently bad about it. The only error is believing it.

You are not the conditioning that causes suffering, nor are you the pleasures that temporarily evade the pain. You are always The Healing.

Nature witholds nothing from itself, until there is nothing to give. ~Byron Katie

On the shore, I think, boats are like thoughts on the river. November is a time for such clear meditation. Only the river!

To know you are God with the mind is madness; to know you are God with the heart is enlightenment.

All pointers, like all metaphors, ultimately break down. They are, like everything in this world, impermanent.

Truth is not attained; Ignorance is dispelled.

It's not about wording; it's about disspelling.

The ocean of Brahman is full of nectar... My mind fell like a hailstone into that vast expanse... Touching one drop of it I melted away...

... ~Shankara
