    Ramana Maharshi Talks -Teachings In His Own Words - Audiobook - Lomakayu
    This is text taken from Arthur Osborne wonderful book. Since starting these projects I have found it best to leave out commentaries and interpretations and just let these great masters speak in their own words. I think it allows a mood to sustain itself and their wisdom to slip past our conceptual minds. Lomakayu

    People with a belief in ‘oneness’ tend to be happier, new research shows
    Yahoo News UK Rob Waugh,Yahoo News UK


    Do you believe in oneness (Getty)

    There’s one personality trait which is linked to happiness – a belief in ‘oneness’, which leads people to be more hopeful and think of their lives more positively.

    Oneness is a feeling that everything in the world is interconnected and interdependent, the researchers say.

    The findings were based on two large-scale surveys involving nearly 75,000 people in Germany.

    Researchers from the University of Mannheim found that people who reported high scores for oneness (by agreeing with questions like, ‘I believe that everything in the world is based on a common principle’), reported higher life satisfaction.

    Lead author Laura Marie Edinger-Schons said, ‘The results of this study reveal a significant positive effect of oneness beliefs on life satisfaction, even controlling for religious beliefs.

    She said, ‘”The feeling of being at one with a divine principle, life, the world, other people or even activities has been discussed in various religious traditions but also in a wide variety of scientific research from different disciplines.

    Edinger-Schons said, ‘I recognised that in various philosophical and religious texts, a central idea is the idea of oneness.

    ‘In my free time, I enjoy surfing, Capoeira, meditation and yoga, and all of these have been said to lead to experiences that can be described as being at one with life or nature or just experiencing a state of flow through being immersed in the activity. I was wondering whether the larger belief in oneness is something that is independent of religious beliefs and how it affects satisfaction with life.’

    Well well--never thought I would see the day.

    Realise Your Self in One Hour!

    Satsang with Mooji at the International Yoga Festival
    4 March 2019

    This beautiful and powerful Satsang takes place when Moojibaba visits the International Yoga Festival at Parmarth Niketan. Speaking with an audience of many who are coming to Satsang for the first time, Moojibaba presents the quintessence of his pointing with a clear and simple guidance.

    "This was for myself the best way of spending this hour with you. What I have endeavoured to share with you is the quintessence of advaitic thought—many people have studied religion and spirituality for many many years. Many people say 'I have studied spirituality for many years, but I have the knowledge, not the experience.' Today I have endeavoured to share the experience of it.

    If you can study something, but not live it, then what value is it? Belief is great, but it must convert into experience."

    This and many other videos are available on https://mooji.tv

    About the question of choice from ACIM

    The power of decision is my own.

    No one can suffer loss unless it be his own decision. No one suffers pain except his choice elects this state for him. No one can grieve nor fear nor think him sick unless these are the outcomes that he wants. And no one dies without his own consent. Nothing occurs but represents your wish, and nothing is omitted that you choose. Here is your world, complete in all details. Here is its whole reality for you. And it is only here salvation is.

    You may believe that this position is extreme, and too inclusive to be true. Yet can truth have exceptions? If you have the gift of everything, can loss be real? Can pain be part of peace, or grief of joy? Can fear and sickness enter in a mind where love and perfect holiness abide? Truth must be all-inclusive, if it be the truth at all. Accept no opposites and no exceptions, for to do so is to contradict the truth entirely.
    It is a joke to think that time can come to circumvent eternity. ~ACIM

    The Guest House
    This being human is a guest house.
    Every morning a new arrival.
    A joy, a depression, a meanness,
    some momentary awareness comes
    as an unexpected visitor.
    Welcome and entertain them all!
    Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
    who violently sweep your house
    empty of its furniture,
    still, treat each guest honorably.
    He may be clearing you out
    for some new delight.
    The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
    meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
    Be grateful for whatever comes.
    because each has been sent
    as a guide from beyond.

    Rumi
