The Breath


The breath is
an invisible
umbilical cord
that connects
all of us
to a source
of great

Express the love
Words of Peace

Maharaji in Miami: 10/23/10


"Knowledge doesn't create an experience. Knowledge puts you in touch with an experience. Big difference."

"We are the union of the infinite and the finite."

"Be in the present. Live your life consciously. Be fulfilled. Recognize the importance of breath. Be aware."

"Hate is a bad sword made of plastic. Love is the real sword."

"When you have the eye that comes from the heart, it all makes sense. Look with that special eye and you will see reality, the good, the beauty, the heaven, the God that your heart is."

"Without the Master, there is no show."

People Talking About the Value of Maharaji as Their Teacher

One thing I find moving about Maharaji is the heartfelt gratitude of his students. Here's a six-minute video of some of their comments and accompanying responses from Maharaji.

The Results of a Ten Year Research Project on Meditation*

The Heart of the Matter is pleased to announce the publication of a multinational, longitudinal study on meditation conducted by the Global Institute for Higher Learning. Over 1,750,000 people from 81 countries were interviewed since 1995. Or maybe 7 people. I'm not totally sure.



*Hmmm.. I thought everyone would get that this posting was a parody, but apparently not. Some readers are actually asking me serious questions about the "study." This is a parody, folks, but apparently not enough so. Oh well...

Express the Love You Feel


Well, thanks for
taking the time
out of your busy day
to visit my blog.
I really do appreciate it.
But I believe there is someone
very close to you right now
who could really
use a hug,
or a cup of tea
or, better yet,
a 30 minute foot massage.
So... please gently
back away from the computer,
find the person I am speaking of,
and express
the love you feel.
