Absorbed in this world, you've made it your burden. 
Rise above this world. There is another vision. 
All your life you've paid attention to your experiences, but never to your Self. 
Are you searching for your Soul? Then come out of your prison.
Leave the stream and join the river that flows into the Ocean. 

It will not lead you astray.
Let the beauty you seek be what you do!

~ Rumi ~

  3. It's easy to misunderstand this notion of 'Self'.
    Because it must be eliminated, to attain enlightenment.
    Only then may one appreciate what 'Self' really is: a necessary part of The Whole, rather than the whole thing, in itself.

  4. Yes, when ego creeps in, we feel separate from the Whole.When we feel ourselves part of the Whole,we regard entire humanity as one . Thanks The Crow.

  5. "Entire humanity" is already in hell.
    One does best to concentrate on extricating oneself, and then, possibly, easing one or two others from their suffering, if possible.

    Humility decrees not overreaching what is possible, or reasonable.

  6. Ah. I know something you don't know.
    Maybe you might consider this.
    It certainly couldn't hurt.

  7. Hell may be as you say it is: a mental stage. I couldn't say, for sure: I don't live there any more.
    But Heaven...
    Heaven is something I know about. I've been there, and there's nothing mental about it. Nothing in the Universe is more Real than Heaven.
