'o Ke Aka Ka 'oukou

You are . . .
beyond the body, mind, and personality
beyond all experience and the experiencer thereof Ö
beyond the world and its perceiver
beyond existence and its absence
beyond all assertions and denials.
Be still and awaken to the realization of who you are.
Truth comes to an innocent mind as a blessing and a sacrament. Truth is a holy thing because it liberates thought from itself and illumines the human heart from the inside out.
I am a window. Look through me, not at me.
Donít try to find yourself or define yourself through what you do; instead, seek only to express your highest knowing of what you are through what you do.
By being nothing you are everything.
By wanting nothing, you are eternally filled with grace.
No person or event has the power to make you happy or unhappy.
You want me to speak of love, and so I will.
But the Love of which I can speak costs me all my coins of illusion and so I cannot compromise its virtues nor quibble over its price.
This Love is Divine Nectar
a wine found only at the innermost table.
It has seen endless days of rain and sun and harvest.
It has been made wise and mellow by the passing of time
and its refined taste is uncompromising to those who prefer their wine young and overly sweet.
Although at times you may appear to be swept away by its dizzying effects
you will find that you have the clarity of a diamond
and the reflexes of a falcon.
You will remain capable of compassion and ruthless decisiveness alike.
In one hand you will hold a feather
and in the other
Drink of the wine of this Love
and your life will change.
Instead of being the gatherer
of Divine Light
you will be its shine.
It will be the end of you
and the beginning - from The Innermost Table by Adyashanti
There is no such thing as integrating truth into an illusion
This is Aloha
