All of spirituality is contained in that one word: Awareness. ~ Mata Amritanandamayi


Proceed on life’s journey with awareness. ~ Mata Amritanandamayi


If I were to summarize it ( Guruma's teachings) into one thing, it would be awareness. How to develop that awareness-insight. I am not referring to awareness at the level of the mind as seen in mountaineers or astronauts. A slip in awareness and the mountaineer can be buried alive under snow or the astronaut blasted away from his ship. But that awareness does not transform them or cause them to disassociate from the mind and its functions. To be an observer is to be totally neutral and to be a witness. And somewhere, I would add, the awareness of who I am, or what the truth is.  ~ Anandamurti Gurumaa


How to do meditation, many people ask me. Don't do anything, to just go into thoughtless awareness. Try to go to the thoughtless awareness. If you can get into that condition of thoughtless awareness you've done your job, because that's the point where you are with the truth, with the reality, with the joy, with everything that is so fundamental. ~ Nirmala Devi


When you are in thoughtless awareness, you must know that you are in the kingdom of God and His people, His arrangements, His consciousness, is going to look after you. ~ Nirmala Devi


Awareness is the background for all of our experiences, and yet in our ordinary day-to-day lives, it is often obscured by habituated thoughts and emotions. Most teaching and meditation practices are designed to cut through this habituated seeing into the Background of Awareness which is our innate nature and which is, in and of itself, Clear Seeing. ~ Metta Zetty


Awareness is the constant
throughout all experience.

Recognizing this is the key
to abiding Satisfaction. ~ Metta Zetty


If you don't have very strong emotions or very intense thoughts about something, you cannot get depressed. ~ Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev

Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them. ~ Eckhart Tolle

The most beautiful moments in your life – moments of bliss, moments of joy, moments of ecstasy, moments of utter peace – were moments when you were not thinking about anything. You were just living. ~ Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev

"Imagination, imagining is like touching around yourself on a dark path or washing your eyes with blood. 

You are the Truth from head to toe!

So what else would you want to know?" 

-- Jalāl ad-Dīn Mohammad Rūmī, Sufi poet, theologian and mystic etc.

If the truth is silent, but everyone listens to the loudest man in the room, they will all be fooled.
