Keeping silent watch.

When you make the two into one, and when you make the inner as the outer, and the upper as the lower, and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male shall not be male, and the female shall not be female: . . . then you will enter [the kingdom]. Gospel Of Thomas (110)

There is only one great life. I can enter into the experience only if I have first come to unity in myself, only if I have come to be a whole. Jeanne De Salzmann (1889)

God will not tell you that you should desire Him above all else, because He wants your love to be freely given,without "prompting." That is the whole secret in the game of this universe. He who created us yearns for our love. He wants us to give it spontaneously, without His asking. Our love is the one thing God does not possess, unless we choose to bestow it. So, you see, even the Lord has something to attain: our love. And we shall never be happy until we give it. Paramhansa Yogananda (1893)

I would like to beg you dear Sir, as well as I can, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer. Rainer Maria Rilke (1875)

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. New Testament

Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh, and the greatness which does not bow before children. Kahlil Gibran (1883)

In deepest solitude
I found the narrow way;
a secret giving such release
that I was stunned and stammering
rising above all science.
St. John Of The Cross (1542)

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. Thomas A. Edison (1847)

Who teaches men to be grateful pleads the cause not only of men, but of the gods for they, being placed above all desires, cannot be of want of anything, yet we can nevertheless offer them our gratitude. Lucius Annaeus Seneca (4 B.C.E.)

By waiting and by calm you shall be saved; in quiet and in trust your strength lies. Old Testament

He had no feeling that he was in the heart of a crowded universe, between all whose great verities moved countless small and smaller truths. Little notion had he that to learn these after the measure of their importance, was his business, with eternity to do it in! George MacDonald (1824)

How many times have I promised
Yet every time I failed to keep my word.
But disregard this according to Thy Grace.

St. Ephraim (306)

Hold to the now, the here, through which all future plunges to the past. James Joyce (1882)

When you are identified with the mind you cannot be very intelligent because you become identified with an instrument, you become confined by the instrument and its limitations. And you are unlimited--you are consciousness.

Use the mind, but don't become it . . . mind is a beautiful machine. If you can use it, it will serve you; if you cannot use it and it starts using you, it is destructive, it is dangerous. It is bound to take you . . . into some suffering and misery . . . Mind cannot see; it can only go on repeating that which has been fed into it. It is like a computer; first you have to feed it

. . . But you should remain the master so that you can use it; otherwise it starts directing you.
Osho (1931)

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Jesus Christ (4 B.C.E.)

For this is the journey that men make; to find themselves. It doesn't matter what else they find, fame, fortune, many loves, revenge, when the tickets are collected at the end of the ride, they are tossed in the bin marked failure.

But if a man happens to find himself; the extent of his courage, the limit of his dedication, the position in life from which he can no longer retreat, he has found a mansion he can inhabit with dignity all the days of his life.
James Michener (1907)

It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. Theodore Roosevelt (1858)

Be surprised at nothing. Let peace and stillness flood through you and envelop you completely in its cloak. Put on the whole armour of love - and yet feel, feel very deeply. Let tears flow, washing away impurities until you feel clean within and clean without. Become like an empty vessel ready to be filled with life's nectar. Eileen Caddy (1917)

Expect your every need to be met, expect the answer to every problem, expect abundance on every level, expect to grow spiritually. You are not living by human laws. Expect miracles and see them take place. Hold ever before you the thought of prosperity and abundance, and know that doing so sets in motion, forces that will bring it into being. Eileen Caddy (1917)

If you come to a place of total helplessness, total powerlessness, don't resist. You might find something that up until then you have been missing. Mooji (1954)

Quote of the Moment

"Man cannot understand more because he is in a state of inner disorganization. The quality of his consciousness is too separative and coarse. Yet he starts out in his investigations of the universe without any idea that he will be unable to penetrate beyond a certain point because he himself is an unsuitable instrument for this purpose. "

- Dr. Maurice Nicoll

"If you persist in trying to attain what is never attained (It is Tao's Gift!), If you persist in making effort to obtain what effort cannot get, If you persist in reasoning about what cannot be understood, You will be destroyed by the very thing you seek. To know when to stop, To know when you can get no further by your own action, This is the right beginning! "

- Lao Tse

"Ecstasy is our very nature; not to be ecstatic is simply unnecessary. To be ecstatic is natural, spontaneous. It needs no effort to be ecstatic, it needs great effort to be miserable. That's why you look so tired, because misery is really hard work; to maintain it is really difficult, because you are doing something against nature. "

- Osho
