MOON Shine | Dreams of Awakening

“Lucid dreaming trains us to awaken to the quantum interconnectivity of life. It trains us to recognize the Oneness of waking reality. There is no separateness, no illusion. We are the universal reality of all things, in waking life just as in a lucid dream.”  — Charlie  Morley

“The Awakened One sees the observer and the observed as one. The unawakened one sees the observer and the observed as different.”  ― Sri Amma Bhagwan

“Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside awakes.” ― Carl Jung

“The only thing I want is to awaken all humans on the planet that we are living on Mother Earth.” — Afrika Bambaataa

“Some people awaken spiritually without ever coming into contact with any meditation technique or any spiritual teaching. They may awaken simply because they can’t stand the suffering anymore.”  — Eckhart Tolle

“In actuality, misery is a moment of suffering allowed to become everything. So, when feeling miserable, we must look wider than what hurts. When feeling a splinter, we must, while trying to remove it, remember there is a body that is not splinter, and a spirit that is not splinter, and a world that is not splinter.” ― Mark Nepo

“Jesus Christ knew he was God. So wake up and find out eventually who you really are. In our culture, of course, they’ll say you’re crazy and you’re blasphemous, and they’ll either put you in jail or in a nut house (which is pretty much the same thing). However if you wake up in India and tell your friends and relations, ‘My goodness, I’ve just discovered that I’m God,’ they’ll laugh and say, ‘Oh, congratulations, at last you found out.’” ― Alan Wilson Watts

“WE ALREADY HAVE everything we need. There is no need for self-improvement. All these trips that we lay on ourselves—the heavy-duty fearing that we’re bad and hoping that we’re good, the identities that we so dearly cling to, the rage, the jealousy and the addictions of all kinds—never touch our basic wealth. They are like clouds that temporarily block the sun. But all the time our warmth and brilliance are right here. This is who we really are. We are one blink of an eye away from being fully awake.” ― Pema Chödrön

“No one and nothing outside of you can give you salvation, or free you from the misery. You have to light your own lamp. You have to know the miniature universe that you yourself are.” ― Banani Ray

“My speaking is meant to shake you awake, not to tell you how to dream better.” ― Adyashanti

“You are one thing only. You are a Divine Being. An all-powerful Creator. You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was.” ― Anthon St. Maarten

“The Buddha’s dharma didn’t teach peace and relaxation; it taught awakening—often rude awakening.” ― Jay Michaelson

“Disasters work like alarm clocks to the world, hence God allows them. They are shouting, ‘Wake up! Love! Pray!” ― Criss Jami

“Low states are a like a poison to the psyche. Millions of people throughout the world take tranquillizers each day to combat depression, but this does not tackle its root cause, which is found in the basic state of the internal energies of the psyche.

“Basically the energy of the psyche needs to change, from low states to spiritual ones. It requires inner observation, the destruction of the egos, and alchemical transformation.” ― Belsebuub

“God is not passive. He is relentless, and he will build you through fire. He will put in your heart a need for answers. The intensity of what bothers your soul is often his voice trying to take you from the limited vision of mankind to the full view of the best life he would like to offer you. He is above any pastor, any bishop, any prophet, any church, any cleverly crafted sermon or multi-meaning verse. He is the master of his craft and the author of your forever. Inner peace is only found through action. Fear may darken the trail, but the light of peace stands at the end of such a journey –waiting with truth.” ― Shannon L. Alder

“When going out of your material body, after the return, the courage becomes so great that you can tread on things that can take the life of a materialist.” ― Michael Bassey Johnson

“This surprised me because it made me realize that what I sought was not outside myself. It was within me, already there, waiting. Awakening was really the act of remembering myself, remembering this deep Feminine Source.” ― Sue Monk Kidd

“Though we may choose to view them symbolically, dreams are actually no more or less symbolic than everyday waking reality. When the images and events don’t conform to our view of reality, we call them symbols. When they do, we call them facts.” ― Eric Micha’el Leventhal

“Death is not like going to sleep, it’s more like waking up from a dream and realizing the person you were in the dream wasn’t you, the problems you had in the dream weren’t your problems. Waking up in a dream and realizing we are not the dream character but the dreamer is enlightenment.” ― Emmanuel Diogu

“Once you awaken, you will have no interest in judging those who sleep.” ― James Blanchard Cisneros
