Ques:
Then where is the need of giving expression to one's longing?

Nisargadatta: No need. Doing nothing is as good. Mere longing,
undiluted by thought and action, pure, concentrated longing, will take you
speedily to your goal. It is the true motive that matters, not the manner.

Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles.
Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. ~Paramahansa's Guru's Guru

In this world we must not become attached to anything-
not even things the most innocent...the eternal alone can satisfy us.

'Enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It's seeing through the facade of pretence. It's the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true' - Adyashanti

True Meditation is the space in which everything gets revealed, everything gets seen, everything gets experienced-Adyashanti

When the Great Mystery calls out your soul...

"It may be that when we no longer know what to do,
we have come to our real work
and when we no longer know which way to go,
we have begun our real journey.

The mind that is not baffled is not employed.
The impeded stream is the one that sings.”

Wendell Berry

I love this Adyashanti poem, I love its well-nigh belligerent tone

“If you prefer smoke over fire
then get up now and leave.
For I do not intend to perfume
your mind's clothing
with more sooty knowledge.

No, I have something else in mind.
Today I hold a flame in my left hand
and a sword in my right.
There will be no damage control today.

For God is in a mood
to plunder your riches and
fling you nakedly
into such breathtaking poverty
that all that will be left of you
will be a tendency to shine.

So don't just sit around this flame
choking on your mind.
For this is no campfire song
to mindlessly mantra yourself to sleep with.

Jump now into the space
between thoughts
and exit this dream
before I burn the damn place down.”

(Oh, and I love the Wendell Berry quote, naturesflow, it really speaks to me right now )

If we touch the Holy Spirit, we touch God not as a concept
but as a living reality.
