Quote of the Day – April 9 2012

“Everybody wants to let go, but how do you let go if you don’t hold things, if you don’t touch things in full consciousness, with a totally open heart?
–Daniel Odier, Tantric Quest

Looking inside myself and contemplating. How deeply do I touch life? I know that I live mostly in my head and sometimes feel everything is somewhat remote. More and more tho I have allowed myself to feel. I wake up in the morning and feel the sun upon my face and say thank you. I gaze at the sun and feel it charging me. I walk the dogs and more often than not do it mindfully.
I have started to ask objects and rocks for their stories and am listening. More and more I do the same with people tho that can be a challenge. Still there are too many ways in which I avoid the interaction.

What ways can you think of to interact more with life?
Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – April 6 2012

“Consciousness is the place of worship. Consciousness is the sacred text. Consciousness is the way. Consciousness is the place of sacrifice. Consciousness is the fire. Consciousness is the place of ritual union. Consciousness is the place of samadhi. Consciousness is the Awakening. Consciousness is the dwelling place of the gods. Consciousness is time. Consciousness is space. Consciousness is the jar, the vessel out of which flows the divine.”
— Daniel Odier, Tantric Quest

Recently I have started reading Tantric Quest by Daniel Odier, an account of one man’s study of Tantra with a female yogi in the Himalayans. It is a fantastic recounting of an amazing story that I recommend highly. I may have a few more quotes from it before I am done. I always find it instructive to read of the paths of others and the relationship between a spiritual teacher and a student has always been fascinating to me.
