Concepts are structured by thought, and so is a self projecting itself through thoughts—a thought structuring itself a ‘self’ through concepts—while “the sacred" lies beyond all thoughts. One may formulate it through words, but then it becomes the past—a conditioning: a mind, and not the sacred. One can only define the known. Abide in this silence, this ‘not knowing’, and who knows, you may meet the sacred.

(Inspired by nature and time amidst it, exploring the sacred teachings to realize truth, and observe the ‘nature of self’; to go beyond words and not be “stuck on the finger pointing at the moon”)

- Kanages Ramesh

“The religious man is he who does not belong to any religion, to any nation, to any race, who is inwardly completely alone, in a state of not-knowing. And for him the blessing of the sacred comes into being.”

- On God by J.Krishnamurti

Country: Sri Lanka

“To silence & solitude”

What inspires me is the feeling or emotion we are able to capture and convey either through words, an image, or both.The ‘pictures’ we evoke more than the seen. They would better communicate who, what, or where I am now. It is through them that we are ultimately going to “see’ each other. It is through them that we may connect. I look forward to the connection.

  • That’s GREAT Anna!! To abide without concepts that divide and cause conflict! Appreciate very much your thoughts, as always, Anna!! One has to “journey” though, into the interior, to be in such places. :)) Thank you again my friend!! :))

    I also agree with those words about the ‘religious man’ Ramesh, and never heard that so beautifully expressed before, ever. Wow. The image is extremely beautiful and is a wonderful pairing with your words. A powerful post my friend! : )))
    Warm hugs, shar xoxoxxoxoxoxoxox

  • Thank you so much Shar!! The late, J.Krishnamurti’s words are so profound, that I would say, next to the Buddha, he is the one who has most brought paradigm shifts to my thought processes. Yet, if not for seeing the origin of thought, through Buddhist insight meditation, such shifts with conviction, I personally believe, would not have been possible. Thank you so much Shar!! Appreciate very much your thoughts in this!! You are one who abides in UNITY!!! xoxoxoxoxoxo

    This is beautiful as always my friend. Personally, I certainly don’t look at myself as anything sacred. I know my sanctuary is within me through the sacredness of Christ, only He is good and I am grateful He gave it to me. It’s wonderful to understand there is more to life than just the here and now. Thanks for sharing with Just For You!!!

  • Hi Viv, I am glad you have found your sanctuary in the sacredness of Christ.. Because, personally, I have found, the sacred is what one experiences , when thought is not active. Since one thinks and defines with words, and with words being constructs of the mind, whenever one attempts to define the sacred, it will always be the known; another construct, and not the sacred. Just a very personal experience. Thank you so much my friend!! Appreciate very much your input again!! :))

    It’s all a beautiful place to find yourself. I have always experienced what I felt was the sacred, but never knew the whys and reasons for it all. I like to put my finger on the substance of where it all comes from, does that make sense? On my own, I don’t think I’m capable of being deep. I love giving Christ all the credit for who I am and this grounds me, He is my anchor if you can understand that. I love your comments, they are very deep!

  • “Once, having been asked by the Pharisees, when the Kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied “The Kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, nor will people say ’here it is’ or ‘there it is’, because the Kingdom of God is within you.” ~Luke 17:21 . It really does not matter , to whom one gives credit to, whether it is Christ, Muhammad, The Buddha or any of the Hindu saints; . because “Truth” ultimately is beyond any divisions; beyond any labels; beyond any man-made or mind-made constructs. . What matters, essentially, is for one to realize this unity; through his or her religious teachings. On realizing this unity divisions cease, and one abides free of all constructs or concepts, racial, religious , national etc., which divide and cause prejudice, bias, conflict, suffering etc., to realize that which is sacred. May Christ be your anchor towards that realization!! Because in this realization, one discovers ultimately , that for God is love” ~1 John 4:8 ! Thank you so much again Viv!! Appreciate very much again, your thoughts on my work!! :)
