We Are Larger Than We Seem

When we look at ourselves, our bodies have certain, limited dimensions. However, think about the words we use to describe our interior space. We talk about the depth of our sorrow, the expansiveness of our joy, the endless pit of despair.

We describe our thoughts and feelings, often, as limitless, even though our bodies are quite limited in size and scope.

That, I believe, is a reflection of our spiritual dimension. We know we are larger than we seem. Much larger.

In the Depths

Mind is consciousness which has put on limitations. You are originally unlimited and perfect. Later you take on limitations and become the mind.
……..~ Ramana Maharshi

About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).

    Hi Carol:

    I really like your site theme.

    We have to be careful to discriminate between what we believe and what we know.

    We believe a lot of things, but to believe means to take as fact what has not been proved or verified. Having beliefs provides comfort when confronting all that we really don’t know. But it isn’t knowledge.

    Every word Ramana ever uttered only pointed toward knowledge. He provided a door that served as both an entry and an exit: an entry to true understanding and an exit from believing.

I LOVE hearing from you!
