Wise Words: An Empty Room, by Mooji


There is an empty room,

come fully inside.
There are no stories here.
No relatives.
No names, no forms, time, no self.
Don’t be in your head now.
Listen from another place; a holy place deep inside your being.
All the things you once talked about are outside now.
This is a room without walls.  No door.
Nothing lives here.
It is not a dead space.
It’s your true place and Being.
The mind will try to say something like:
‘You cannot stay here,’ or ‘There is nothing here for you,’
but this voice is also phenomenal, while you are not.
Therefore, touch nothing.
Pay attention only to your unmixed self now,
not the personal sense of self.
Personality is only a garment worn by the Self
for a duration called a lifetime.
The body also is just a garment worn for the time being.
Rare is a human being who comes to this place
which cannot be divided;
that cannot die,
where one is naturally happy,
where there are no beginnings or ends.
It is the most pure – immaculate.
From here ego and world arises as fleeting images,
but the Real does not arise.
It permeates all yet nothing permeates it.
Leave everything.
Be here.

  1. If we cannot be divided and cannot die, then are we still human? I suppose if one is elevated to that state, one transcends their humanity and becomes something else. Or perhapse, we become more human than we were before, reaching a depth of understanding that puts us exactly in tune with ourselves so that we do not waver in emotion but know only acceptance. I suppose a meditation like that could feel like eternity. There is no death because there is no future–only that singular moment: the just-being. Forgive my midnight ramblings. 🙂
