I Am Boundlessness – Ilie Cioara
I am spontaneous simplicity
Mind, heart and feeling,
A whole being, absolute fullness
Love in action.
Reveals itself naturally;
When the mind is awakened,
All becomes One.
The past melts away
In the light of all-encompassing Attention;
In emptiness, the Sacred reveals itself
In its natural brilliance.
Experiencing the moment,
The personal mind is dissipated
Expanding into Infinity
As Universal Mind.
Each such encounter
Transforms us radically,
For in each sparkle of consciousness
We are newness, Divinity, Reality!

Ilie Cioara was an [almost unknown] Romanian mystic who lived much of his life under Soviet occupation. As a result, his practice was solitary and hidden. He began his spiritual life as a Christian mystic, but at some point switched over to mantra meditation. After 20 years of practice, one day he felt an intuitive impulse to drop the mantra, and just practice the silence of the mind, by listening to the noises on the street, in the now.
Much of his teachings were stowed away prior to the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1990. He taught quietly from that time until his death in 2004. aged 88. Ilie Cioara’s message is original and unique, as he never traveled to India and never belonged to any traditional school. In his 16 published books, Cioara wrote on awareness, silencing the mind, meditation, and enlightenment. The Silence of the Mind, The Wondrous Journey, Life is Eternal Newness and I Am Boundlessness is a tetralogy.
