Buddhist Poem - "A Deluded Mind"

A deluded Mind


A deluded mind is hell.

Without delusions.

the mind is the country of the Buddhas.

When the mind creates the idea of the mind.

people are deluded and in hell.

Those established on the path to Buddhahood

don’t use the mind to create the idea

of the mind and so are always

in the country…

Thoughts From 'A Course In Miracles'

Added by Marianne on July 16, 2010 at 1:10pm — 1 Comment

*Never Alone*

God and his Angels love me enough to let me go through all the lessons I came here to learn, even the ones that hurt the most. His presence doesn't deny me. It's always there to help me see and understand what I came to this planet to learn.…

Forgiveness - from 'A Course In Miracles'

For some unknown reason, this makes me think of the spill in the Gulf:

Forgiveness is the means by which we will remember. Through forgiveness the thinking of the world is reversed. The forgiven world becomes the gate of Heaven, because by its mercy we can at last forgive ourselves. Holding no-one prisoner to guilt, we become free. Acknowledging Christ in all our brothers, we recognise His Presence in ourselves. Forgetting all our misperceptions, and with…

*Perfect Endings*

I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the…

Embrace Your Genius - by Dr. Wayne Dyer

Embrace Your Genius

Consider that all human beings have within them the same essence of consciousness, and that the process of creativity and genius are attributes of human consciousness. Therefore, genius is a potential that lives within you and every other human being. Many people never get acquainted with this inner world of their personal…

"Sin" According To 'A Course In Miracles'

Sin is defined as lack of love (Text, p. 11). Since love is all there is, sin in the sight of the Holy Spirit is a mistake to be corrected, rather than an evil to be punished. Our sense of inadequacy, weakness and incompletion comes from the strong investment in the scarcity principle that governs the whole world of illusions. From that point of view, we seek in others what we feel is wanting in ourselves. We love another in order to get something ourselves. That, in…

*The Loving Wrath of Mother Nature*

Once upon a time there lived a well-intentioned man. This man was sitting in his garden one afternoon when he noticed a newly formed caterpillar’s cocoon. After studying the cocoon for several days and observing no apparent changes, a small opening began to appear in the cocoon’s thick protective shell.

Later that evening, the man saw a butterfly beginning to emerge…

Here Comes The Sun - by Louise L. Hay

Here Comes the Sun

Every time you hear something is “incurable,” know that they have not yet discovered a cure it and you must go within to find your own solution. Know there is an Intelligence greater.

The sun is always shining. Even though clouds many come along and obscure the sun for awhile, the sun is always shining. The sun…

Speaking our truth.....

Truth resides in every human heart, and one has to search for it there, and to be guided by truth as one sees it. But no one has a right to coerce others to act according to his own view of truth.

Edmund Burke

Do you always tell the truth? By this I mean do you always speak and act from your authentic self? Some people will answer this question with something like this: “yes I do as long as I don’t think it is going to harm or upset someone”. A bit like that… Continue

This thing called Forgiveness

What is this thing called forgiveness? It is so personal.

Creativity - According To Osho

Creativity is the quality that you bring to the activity that you are doing. It is an attitude, an inner approach - how you look at things....

Not everybody can be a painter - and there is no need also. If everybody is a painter the world will be very ugly; it will be difficult to live! And not everybody can be a dancer, and there is no need. But everybody can be creative.

Whatsoever you do, if you do it joyfully, if you do it lovingly, if your act of doing is not purely…

The Absolute - A Buddhist Poem

The Absolute

No mind, no form, I only exist;

Now ceased all will and thought;

The final end of Nature's dance,

I am it whom I have sought.

A realm of Bliss bare, ultimate;

Beyond both knower and known;

A rest immense I enjoy at last;

I face the One alone.

I have crossed the secret ways of life,

I have become the Goal.

The Truth immutable is revealed;

I am the way, the God-Soul.

My spirit aware of all the…
