Quotes of Wisdom: Siddhis and Non-Duality…

On Siddhis:

“The desire for occult powers is part of the desire to impress others. It has nothing to do with the religious quest. It is essentially worldly.” – Osho

“The highest siddhi is realization of the Self, for once you realize the truth you cease to be drawn to the path of ignorance.” – Ramana Maharshi

On Non-Duality:

“Boundary lines, of any type, are never found in the real world itself, but only in the imagination of the mapmakers.” – Ken Wilber

“We dream that we are awake, we dream that we are asleep. The three states are only varieties of the dream state. Treating everything as a dream liberates. As long as you give reality to dreams, you are their slave. By imaging that you are born as so-and-so, you become a slave to the so-and-so. The essence of slavery is to imagine yourself to be a process, to have past and future, to have history.” – Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
