Where my life turns

//Where my life turns

Where my life turns

My teacher wrote this verse, a quote from Nisargadatta, on my rakusu:

« When I look inside and see that I am nothing, that’s wisdom.
When I look outside and see that I am everything, that’s love.
Between the two is where my life turns. »

    "In dream you love some and not others. On waking up you find you are love itself, embracing all […] When you are love itself, you are beyond time and numbers. In loving one you love all, in loving all, you love each. One and all are not exclusive"

    Nisargadatta Maharaj

    With her heart my teacher "writes" acceptance in my heart.
    In this space I can grow.
    i can open.
    i can see what’s there – and accept, embrace…

    This is the unwritten rakusu op love.
    There is no bigger love than this…
