Boundless Like the Ocean

Yesterday, I began my morning meditation with this beautiful quotation from Paramahansa Yogananda:

"The Ocean of Spirit has become the little bubble of my soul. Whether floating in birth, or disappearing in death, in the ocean of cosmic awareness the bubble of my life cannot die. I am indestructible consciousness, protected in the bosom of Spirit's immortality."

Later in the day I received these quotes from The Inner Journey:

You Are Bigger Than You Think

"He who would be serene and pure, needs but one thing, detachment."
- Meister Eckhart

We are the ocean - vast, deep, powerful and rich. Nourishing and nurturing. Dive down into the dark stillness of being. Sense the rising and falling of surface thoughts and emotions, sometimes gentle, sometimes violent. Always shifting. Always in motion. Draw back and watch the waves of your life at play. Know you are the unfathomable depths - surface agitations can't disturb you. Know that you are bigger than the little things that aggravate you.

"The bird of paradise alights only on the hand that does not grasp."
- John Berry

"It's best not to get too excited or too depressed by the ups and downs of life."
- Dalai Lama

So often these messages and insights come up - again and again in so many different ways! And always at precisely the right time... There are no accidents...
