The Tao of heaven is eternal
and the earth abides.
What is the secret of their durability?
It is because they do not
live for themselves.
Therefore, the Sage puts herself last;
but finds herself up ahead.
She is detached from all things;
but finds herself safe and secure.
Because she remains selfless
her Self is realised.
The Tao is eternal
like the mountain Goddess.
She is the mysterious Divine Mother of all things.
She is the source of Heaven and Earth.
She assumes in countless forms,
boundless and limitless.
Heaven and earth are impartial;
They treat all things as straw dogs.
The Sage doesn’t take sides
He treats all people as straw dogs.
To him none are especially dear,
Nor is there anyone he disfavours.
He gives and gives, without condition,
offering his treasures to everyone.
The Tao is empty yet inexhaustible.
How profound, infinitely deep!
It seems to be the mother of all things.
Within it (the Tao), sharp edges become smooth;
conflicts are resolved,
lights are harmonised,
merging it with the world,
hidden and invisible!
If you don’t overvalue talents, people will not be competitive.
If you don’t overvalue possessions, people will not steal.
If you don’t display your treasures,
people will not be envious.
When people see some things as beautiful,
ugliness is created.
When people see some things as good,
Evil is created.
The corporeal and incorporeal produce each other.
Difficult and easy complement each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low depend on each other.
Before and after follow each other.
The Sage lives openly with apparent duality
and paradoxical unity.
Therefore he acts without doing anything
and teaches without saying a word.
Things arise and he lets them come;
Things disappear and he lets them go.
He has but doesn’t possess,
And acts without any expectations.
When his work is done, he takes no credit.
That is why it will last forever.
The Tao that can be spoken
is not the Eternal Tao
The name that can be named
is not the Eternal Name.
The nameless is the origin of all particular things.
Freed from desires, you can see the
Lost in desire, you see only
what is visbly real.
I have no desire but
The desire for samadhi
Permanent state of enlightenment

In this lifetime
The Buddha recognized four distinct levels of realization, each one characterized by a deep experience of selflessness, followed by certain changes in outlook. The experience usually involved intensive meditation and follows study of the four basic truths of Buddhism. If you’re regularly meditating and practising mindfulness, you’re probably already undertaking many of the practices that is advocated by Buddhism. Here are the four stages of enlightenment.Read More

The One Who Is at Play Everywhere says,
There is a space in the heart where
Come here if you want to find me.
Mind, senses, soul, eternity — all are here.
Are you here?

She Who Shines Everywhere sings,
You who hold the mysteries in your hand —
Of will, knowledge and action —
Reveal to me this path of illumined knowing.
I long to merge with you,
Be filled with your nourishing essence.
Lead me into joyous union
With the life of the universe,
That I may know it fully,
Realise it deeply,
And breathe in luminous truth.
Two years ago, I had a strange vivid dream. In my dream, I was in deep love with a Persian man (whom I could not recall his face). In my dream, I was explaining to my Chinese father (whom had left his physical body five years ago) everything about Persian culture.Read More
“The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.”
There are three stages of enlightenment. The first is when the first glimpse happens. I call it mini-satori. When, for the first time, for a single moment mind is not functioning, there is a gap – no thought between you and existence. You and existence, you and existence… for a moment… and the meeting, and the merging, and the communion, and the orgasm… but for a moment. And from that moment the seed will be in your heart and growing.Read More
Last night I was at home editing my second poetry book called Awakening to Love. Initially, this poetry book was supposed to be called This Eternal Romance and it was meant to publish it early this year on Valentine’s Day. However, it wasn’t meant to happen, as my definition on what love is has radically shifted, with a 180 degree change, particularly in the past month.Read More
Whatsoever you do, do not identify with the mind, do not identify with the thoughts. Remain a witness, a pure witness to whatsoever you are doing. Your thoughts and your mind are not the real you, as they come and go. Mind likes to create illusions and dramas. You are the eternal pure consciousness, witnessing whatsoever is unfolding, without identifying with any outer dramas.Read More
