|Salvador Dali - West Side of the Isle of the Dead (1934)|
If you want to arrive at utter stillness, sink into the heart's ceaseless beating.
If you want to hear the voice of the silence, sing from the heart's core.
If you want to drink soma, pour from the deep pools of the heart's emptiness.
This heart is not "something" inside of you.
It is not the Anahata chakra or some bundle of emotions.
It is the lotus blossom of creation itself.
If you want to journey to the end of this endlessness, follow the vultures.
That darkness ahead is actually a blinding light. The sun itself is its shadow.
Look deeply into that blinding light and you will see the universe with new eyes.-- Richard Power
