'We self-protect by blaming, by judging, by shaming; by labelling, "This shouldn't be happening", or "I shouldn't be feeling this, or that". If awakening out of the dream of separation is to become a living, embodied experience, then we are called to be very honest with ourselves as to where we withdraw, or close down, or shut down, or in any way pull away from or try to diminish the rawness of our tender spots.' - Amoda Maa Jeevan

'To be present is to be ruthlessly, radically, unequivocally open to this tenderness, even though the archaic mechanism of ego's reactivity is to limit that, to close, to shut down, and in that shutting down to create a wall of defence - and, most likely, an attack, either an obvious attack or a more subtle attack. So it's in our relationships and our interactions with everything that we can start to purify the heart, so that the light of awakeness that has been opened to can start to flow into our relationships in the world.' - Jeevan

'Awakening is about letting go of all control. That's why meditation practice can be useful for our physical bodies, which are conditioned to control, and defend, and hold on. Meditation can help you notice where the holding on is. You just sit, and stop, and notice what's going on physically, emotionally, energetically. The physical body is a wonderful mirror.' - Jon Bernie

Even Kings and emperors with heaps of wealth and vast dominion cannot compare with an ant filled with the love of God.

The experiencer—the witness of each moment—
never changes even as the entire canvas of your life shifts about.
Rest attention in that witnessing principle and regain your sense of freedom.
Your real self is never affected by circumstances.

-Bentino Massaro
