Learning to Dwell in the "Secret Place" of the Most High

Today’s Quotes: “Life is this simple.  We are living in a world that is absolutely transparent. And the Divine is shining through it all the time. This is not just a nice story or a fable, it is true.” -Thomas Merton   “Q: Who am I ? RM: The gross body which is composed of the seven humours (dhatus), I am not; the five cognitive sense organs, viz. the senses of hearing, touch, sight, taste, and smell, which apprehend their respective objects, viz. sound, touch, colour, taste, and odour, I am not; the five cognitive sense organs, viz. the organs of speech, locomotion, grasping, excretion, and procreation, which have as their respective functions speaking, moving, grasping, excreting, and enjoying, I am not; the five vital airs, prana, etc., which perform respectively the five functions of in breathing, etc., I am not; even the mind which thinks, I am not; the nescience too, which is endowed only with the residual impressions of objects, and in which there are no objects and no functioning’s, I am not. Q: If I am none of these, then who am I? RM: After negating all of the above-mentioned as ‘not this’, ‘not this’, that Awareness which alone remains – that I am. Q: What is the nature of Awareness? RM: The nature of Awareness is existence-consciousness-bliss Q: When will the realization of the Self be gained? RM: When the world which is what-is-seen has been removed, there will be realization of the Self which is the seer.” – from Who Am I? Nan Yar? Teachings of Ramana Maharshi PDF “You are the Brahman in totality, nothing more. Unfortunately, you have conditioned yourself to believe that you , the Brahman are the body. Now you know that you are not the body.” -Nisargadatta Maharaj “To live under Grace, you must consciously negate the laws of the world and the world’s dominion over you, and by an activity of consciousness become aware of the law of God operating in your experience. … To “pray without ceasing” is just another way of keeping your mind stayed on God and acknowledging Him in all your ways.  Many passages in the Bible indicate that in proportion as you dwell “in the secret place of the most High”, none of the evils of the world can come nigh your dwelling place.  In spite of God’s Omnipresence, a thousand can fall at your left and ten thousand at your right, but it will not come nigh the dwelling place of the person who dwells and lives consciously in the realization of God’ Presence, God’s Power, and God’s Grace.  If you are to make the transition from being a person whose life is not God-governed to one whose life is God-governed there is a price to be paid. I can tell you that for the first year or two the price is high and the way is hard.  It means consciously remembering the Presence from morning to night.” – Joel Goldsmith  Today’s Practice: Neti Neti in the style of Ramana Maharshi.  Look out and recognize that everything that you think is you, is not.  Everything that you think is here, that you think is truth, is not.  Only this Love is you.  Only this Love is real.  Only this Love is here.
