Unfathomable

In reality there is only the source, dark in itself, making everything shine. Unperceived, it causes perception. Unfelt, it causes feeling. Unthinkable, it causes thought. Non-being, it gives birth to being. It is the immovable background of motion. Once you are there, you are at home everywhere. - Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj


the great Nothingness,
the host of all creation,
untouched, loving all.

Thank you Mary,for this gem from the Divine mine....

Gratitude moves the heart to speak the unspeakable

Gratitude teaches this ear to listen, and receive "your" gift in joy....

Have just finished an extraordinary novel, if you enjoy such things: The Quiet Girl by Peter Hoeg. Non-dual fiction!

Thoughts, memories, emotions, associations and perceptions blow around like leaves in the wind, with lives of their own. It hurts to heap them together and guard them against winds of change that will surely scatter everything again.

What happens when these experiencing structures are simply left to blow about in perfect freedom? What's left is the unfathomable no-state state of I AM.
