Quote of the Day 05 October 2013 ~ Focused Presence

If you give yourself one complete minute of focused presence, to simply stop; even to listen to your heart beating, it will take you out of your head and introduce you to the moment… which is complete in itself. It is not on the way to another moment. It is not a bridge to another opportunity. It is the timeless perfection… So stop…and sink into this timeless moment.

About Mooji: Anthony Paul Moo-Young, known as Mooji, (born 29 January 1954) is a spiritual teacher or guru originally from Jamaica. Moo-Young was a student of Papaji who was a direct disciple of the advaita and non-dual master Ramana Maharshi. Mooji has called his relaxed philosophical approach, “the lazy man’s way to enlightenment”. (source – Wikipedia) In all his wisdom, Mooji coined the phrase ‘focused presence’
Moo-Young’s teachings are simple and he encourages his followers to keep quiet and avoid the mind’s influence and abide in the Self which is the witness of all phenomenal existence and therefore before any ‘thing’, including thoughts and all that is perceived with the five senses.
Mooji has also authored three books:
Before I Am: The Direct Recognition of Truth – Dialogues with Mooji. Mooji Media; 2nd edition edition. 2012.
Breath of the Absolute – Dialogues with Mooji. 2010.
Writing on Water: Spontaneous Utterances Insights and Drawings. Mooji Media. 2011.
Mooji is one of the most well known contemporary teachers of the advaita Vedanta tradition and a “rising international legend”
