In a quantum universe, magic is not the exception but the rule.— Arjuna Ardagh
The most perspective Arjuna Ardagh quotes that will add value to your life
However beautifully you play the violin, you can always play the violin even more beautifully again.
They see that who they are is the silence in which sound is happening, the spaciousness in which movement occurs. This kind of recognition, whether fleeting or abiding, is called an awakening.
I enjoy spending time with other awakened people and feeling the shared vibration of that, whereas just fun for its own sake might no longer be quite so enticing as it used to be.
Iago is the dominant trance state of our planet.
It influences our relationships, our sexuality, our parenting, and our attempts to relax. It permeates corporate business, international politics, and our economic system.
I think the main way that somebody would know they're translucent is that their life has become more about the embodiment of Spirit than about acquisition, and that may be something that creeps up on you.
However much your life may have become an expression of creativity, of generosity of spirit, there's always the further possibility of more or just expressing it in different ways.
That's the translucent life. You are continuously discovering how you can ooze more Spirit into your personal life and there's no end to that process. It goes on and on and deepens and deepens and deepens.
Most of us spend our lives convinced that there's something missing: "If only I had a bigger barbecue, more money, a bigger car, a different wife, a different.... If only I could upgrade somehow, then I would be okay."
The dominant trance of the planet is that we live in a perpetual sense of lack, a perpetual sense of, "If only I could make this small tweak, then I would feel okay." And, of course, none of the tweaks ever work in the long term.
Once we meet our children, even for moments, in a place of "I don't know," of relinquished authority, we return to the realms of mystery and magic, where real connection becomes alive again.
A translucent person appears to glow as if from the inside.
It's as though they've been lit up from inside and they appear to emit light.
The most important thing about translucent people is that their life has been deeply transformed by an awakening.
Awakening is usually precipitated by the honest, sincere, inquiry into who you really are.
What was considered a peak mystical experience a few years ago is today the basic platform of sanity from which our exploration begins.
It seems to me that all of us, in our own way, have our own personal lagos.
We all have within us a voice that is whispering doubt, that is whispering suspicion, that's telling us there's something wrong, there's something missing, there's something that should be different. And we easily become hypnotized by that voice of doubt.
Feminine spirituality is much more about the emanation of love in this moment, feeling into this moment, feeling the texture of this moment through the skin, through the body, and then letting your life become an emanation of love.
I don't think there is any end to translucence.
It's an endless journey, rather like playing the violin.
Whenever we release our need to be right about everything as parents, we are able to meet our children in a relationship of mutuality and respect.
The first thing you discover is a kind of emptiness, a silence, a presence which doesn't seem to have content to it, like looking up at a limitless sky. That boundary-less place inside you is your own consciousness, your awareness. When you relax into it, you realize that it's also full - it is everything. You realize this presence is what you really are: Love.
Most of the myths that we carry about spirituality are because we have been dominated by this hyper-masculine trance.
Masculine people, by their nature, tend to want to make everything into a journey with a goal.
The translucent life is very much about overflowing with a gift to the world, rather than being here to consume or to get something for yourself.
However much you may have expressed love through your life, you can always express love more.
The Iago trance is a state that we've really come to accept as normal, even if we may not feel it to be natural.
I think the myths are keeping us limited to, and tied to, what I would call the hyper-masculine tradition. All the major religions in the world have been founded by men and propagated by men.
There were statistically more women than men on the planet.
Why should every major religion have been founded by men and propagated by men?
My own awakening came in 1991 and my teacher then, in India, asked me to return to the West and to share this kind of inquiry.
The translucent revolution is not only about more and more people having awakening, it's also about the way that awakening is embodied â€" and that's much more revolutionary, actually.
