Consciousness is that which experiences all thought, sensation, emotion and objects, but not an object to itself. Awareness and experience is one, not separate.
What is stillness? The inner space or awareness in which the words on this page are being perceived and become thoughts. Without that awareness, there would be no perception, no thoughts, no world. You are that awareness, disguised as a person.
Article: What is Happiness? From The Path of Sri Ramana By Sri Sadhu Om
‘O Man, do you want happiness? Are you working for it? Or do you atleast have the desire to find a path through which you can direct your efforts? Then you are fortunate! Here is a method for your consideration. After scrutinizing it, see if you are convinced that everlasting happiness can be obtained through this way. If this method appeals to you as sound, follow it. Put forth your best efforts and enjoy in full the fruit of your toil. Listen to this exposition of the unique path to perennial bliss, which clears all the doubts that have been created in your mind by the various scriptures’ – so sounds the divine horn-of-knowledge (jnanamurasu) of Bhagavan Sri Ramana to the world.
“Listen my dear maiden! The Sadguru who, because of His divine compassion, came on earth in the human form of Sri Ramana is standing on the holy Hill Annamalai (Arunachalam) and is sounding His divine horn-of-knowledge so loudly that even the heavens tremble and the real Eye of all the people on earth opens! With this Verse! wake you up so that you may know that He is protecting us from pitfalls and has taken us as His own. Therefore wake up and see, and drink the nectar of His Grace: wake up my child, never to sleep again.” - ‘Sri Ramana Embavai’. verse 615
O Man who is ceaselessly craving and toiling for happiness, crying, “Happiness! Happiness! I want happiness!”, do you atleast know what happiness is? On many occasions in your life you have experienced happiness in various forms, have you not? Now then, can you tell me what happiness is? Those experiences through the senses that are agreeable to your mind you term as happiness, and disagreeable ones as misery, do you not? This idea of yours about happiness and misery is wrong!
That is why all the methods through which you have tried to obtain happiness and avoid misery have come to naught. Because the method was wrong, happiness untainted by misery has never been within your reach! Since we say that your idea of happiness and misery is wrong, is it not necessary first to explain why it is wrong, and then to determine what happiness really is? Now listen.
According to your idea, you should be happy when, the objects for the satisfaction of the five senses are obtained, and miserable when they are not. But see, you are happy in your dreamless sleep. Not even a single experience through any of the five senses is present there, yet sleep is blissful to one and all! According to you, there ought to be only misery when the five senses are not working – but in fact it is not so. Contrary to your belief, there is happiness when the five senses are not working, that is, in the absence of body-consiousness! How do you account for this? You have to admit that happiness can be experienced even without the help of the five senses.
Moreover, a man or woman who has heaped all those objects which satisfy the five senses, such as wealth, fine houses, clothes, tasty food, an agreeable wife or husband, children and relatives – which alone are the means for gaining happiness according to your idea – must be the happiest person in the world, while one who has none or few of these must be miserable. However, when we see the world, it is not so. Even the richest man has his own miseries! Sometimes he cannot even have a good night’s sleep. ‘The thicker the finger, the greater the swelling! In contrast to this, you find that the penniless labourer who toils all day long, eats but a morsel in the night and later lies on the hard pavement, enjoys a sound sleep free of all worries. There is still a more important point to be noted here. In deep sleep, even the rich man is totally dissociated from his external sources of pleasure, and despite this dissociation he is quite happy.
Therefore you must accept the fact that happiness is something which can shine even without the aid of the five senses. Furthermore, as happiness is experienced by you in deep sleep, where there is neither body-consciousness nor awareness of the world, it follows that happiness must be within you, and not outside. Now you clearly know that you were wrong all along in thinking that happiness comes from external objects. Every object in this world – including your own body – is extraneous to you, and that is why they are forgotten in deep sleep. Yet, since everyone experiences perfect happiness in that state, the only possible conclusion is that happiness does lie within you. The truth is that you yourself are happiness! Happiness is your true nature! You are not this body-form! You are full and perfect bliss itself!!
I Am Aware, That I Am.
If we are in pain, when to lash out at others to make then feel how we feel, which continues the cycle of suffering. If you are in pain at this moment, go to it now. Can you see a reason to let it go? If not, ask why am I making myself suffer? If you see no reason to hold on to it, allow your self to feel what has brought you hurt. Be there, it is okay to cry. It is okay to release it, to surrender, to let it go. Can you let it go? If so, give your self a couple mins. Just be and breathe through it. If you feel peace now, you have just open your heart back up to love yourself and others. That is your natural state.

Article: Insights about Love from I Am Word: A Channeled Text by Paul Selig
When one realizes the love of God and understands it but can only experience it in a portion that is allotted because the mind cannot comprehend the worthiness of the soul, we will tell you, the pain is great. When you understand that the love that is available through God, through the Universe, through the Christed self is so enormous that it can hold the world in one light you can comprehend the realization.
Now when you ask yourself, “Do I love?” what does it mean? When you ask this, “Do I love?” does this mean, “Am I a good friend? Am I a father to my child? Am I a husband? Am I a wife? Am I a citizen? Am I a boy or a girlfriend?” How you define love, experience it, becomes your truth, and the depth and truth of love, finally, will be realized by you to the extent that you allow it to be there. The fundamental truth is that love is a manifestation of the God self actively engaged in a light projection with another, with the field of another, with a group, with a race, with a love of all mankind. It doesn’t matter how you energize it. But once you understand fully that love is a vibration that works through you and with you, then you change your course about what you have perceived love to be.
The truth of love is much larger than you could understand with your conscious mind. The truth of love, in force, is the act of God incarnating as man. The fact of love in truth is the frequency of all God self realized within men. The action of love is to bequeath this love fully on others in wholeness without judgment and without desire.
Desire is a function. But there are different levels of it. And passion is one function of love but it is not love. It is an expression of love at times, but it is not always. And to require love of another is never love. To love somebody fully is to announce yourself to them in the fullness of Christ and to be in their energy with no judgment at all, and no requirements for them to be any different than they are.
What is a true love? A true love is the one you enjoin with to participate in the action of love. And to understand that love is an action, its an activation, it’s an activity, it’s a doing, then changes your understanding of everything you may have believed love to be. Love is not a fawning. Love is not docile. Love is what one does. When one is in true love, one is doing with the other. Now knowing this, does true love mean you are sanctified to one person? That is not the case necessarily, however that is how it is habituated in its behavior. That’s how it is understood and expressed through many of you, and we say it’s fine. But is it the requirement? Can one be in true love with significant others at the same time? Of course. God loves everybody individually and collectively at the same time. To diminish your love for another because you are involved with someone else is actually a form of blasphemy, because you decide that love is not warranted.
Now each of you wonders, “What is my love? What is the meaning of my love? Where does my love belong?” And we will tell you this. Love directs the action. The mind does not direct the action. The love itself directs the action. When you are in your love you bring to you love. When you love another truthfully, your respond to the other in truth. There can be no lying when love is present. It does not desire. Love is an expression, it is an action, it is a truth. Now the way you confuse it, is to confuse it with the self’s desires, appointments, requirements, decisions.

Article: Light of Ex-tension Exercise by Marcus Thomas
Close your eyes. Now, imagine a enormous LIGHT that ex-tends out of everything, from you, through you and as You. There is NO-THING this LIGHT is NOT. Correct. Now, extend your light out into your HOME. Extend it out even more into your COMMUNITY, now your CITY, now, EXPAND to your nation, now to the whole EARTH. Lastly, extend the Light out onto all of the Universe, including all of creation.
That light is YOU. That LIGHT is GOD. That is what you are. You are IT. You can’t FIND IT, or go LOOK for IT, YOU are it.
But, when you break that light down and limit it to “what you have, what you do, what other people think of you or see your Self as separate from others,” that is when you have “forgotten” who you REALLY are and that is an OPPORTUNITY to RETURN TO LOVE, TO THE GOD IN YOU. It can NEVER LEAVE you or NEVER be taken AWAY by anything you think, say or do. THAT is UNCONDITIONAL LOVE OF GOD, in EVERYONE, whether you DESIRE to SEE IT or NOT. <3, Remorphabeing
Jason sits down with Dr. Wayne Dyer, author of Wishes Fulfilled. They talk about Life, Death, Ego and transcending the illusion your Ego.
We have a tendency to evaluate our selves based on the senses, thoughts and material possessions. We have to come to terms with that, “Who I am is not something I can touch, I can see or I can smell. Our true essence is beyond our senses.” - Wayne Dyer
