“The door that locks you in, is also the door that lets you out.
The ‘I am’ is the door. Stay at it until it opens.
As a matter of fact, it is open, only you are not at it.
You are waiting at the non-existent painted doors, which will never open…”
– Nisargadatta Maharaj
“I have lived on the lip of insanity,
wanting to know reasons,
knocking on a door.
I’ve been knocking from the inside.”
If you have been following the living zen retreat this week, you’ll already be familiar with this door, and have perhaps, already stepped through it. If not, perhaps it’s time to take a peek, starting right back at day 01.
Stop knocking, you’re already there.
