By waiting and by calm you shall be saved; in quiet and in trust your strength lies. Old Testament
You are banging the walls. What walls? There are no walls. You are fighting the guards. What guards? They don't exist. You are free right now. See this. Vernon Howard (1918)
What your looking for is what's looking. St. Francis Of Assisi (1181)
in the world
is usual today.
the first morning.
Come quickly - as soon as
these blossoms open,
This world exists
as a sheen of dew on flowers.
Izumi Shikibu (974)
Happy is the man that findeth Wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies; and all things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. (3:13-15) Proverbs (400)
The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn as the round earth rolls. John Muir (1838)
Meditation - the true action of a quiet mind - is not the path to the divine; it is the action of the divine reflecting upon itself. Guy Finley (1949)
There is no reaching the Self. If Self were to be reached it would mean that it is not here and now but that it is yet to be obtained. What is got afresh will also be lost. So it will be impermanent. What is not permanent is not worth striving for. So I say the Self is not reached. You are the Self; you are already That. Ramana Maharshi (1879)
Lose your temper and you lose a friend; lie and you lose yourself. Hopi Adage
The most exquisite paradox . . . as soon as you give it all up, you can have it all. As long as you want power, you can't have it. The minute you don't want power, you'll have more than you ever dreamed possible. Ram Dass (1931)
Don't think you can attain total awareness and whole enlightenment without proper discipline and practice.
This is egomania.
Appropriate rituals channel your emotions and energy toward the light. Without the discipline to practice them, you will tumble constantly backward into darkness.
Lao Tse (604 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)
Give ear to my cry, Eternal Word,
and answer me
for I am in need of You.
Awaken new life in me,
as I yearn to do Your will;
dispel the ignorance of my ways;
as I put my trust in You.
You are the Beloved, be gracious to me,
Heart of my heart,
for with You I would walk all day.
My soul is uplifted as I abandon
myself into Your hands.
Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering. St. Augustine Of Hippo (354)
Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts. Paramhansa Yogananda (1893)
It's not to seek and find. It is simply to ask and wait. Byron Katie
We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. Pierre Teilhard De Chardin (1881)
If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment. Henry David Thoreau (1817)
You are the angel who will banish darkness from your life. You are the angel that will bring light to the land of your heart. You are the angel who will kill the dragons of doubt. You are the angel that will triumph -- triumph over all that you cannot tolerate. Prem Pal Singh Rawatt, Maharaji (1957)
Speech is mightier than all fighting. Ptah-hotep (2350 B.C.E.)
Be the change you wish to see in the world. Mahatma Gandhi (1869)
He who strikes terror into others is himself in continual fear. Claudian (370)
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)
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)
God is gathering us out of all regions till he can make resurrection of our own hearts from the very earth, and teach us that we are all of one substance, and members of one another; for the one who loves his neighbor loves God, and the one who loves God, loves his own soul. St. Anthony Of The Desert (251)
"Everything has its own time, just as there was an appropriate time for the apostles to proclaim Jesus as Messiah. At all times you should be engaged upon the work of your salvation, because every time is suitable for a life pleasing to God. "- Gregory Of Nazianzus

"To those who seek truth in conventionalized religion: Until college and minaret have crumbled this holy work of ours will not be done. Until faith becomes rejection And rejection becomes belief There will be no true believer. "- Abu Said
"Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way. "- American Indian
"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
""Is there anything that I can do to make myself enlightened?" "As little as you can do to make the sun rise in the morning." "Then of what use are the spiritual exercises you prescribe?" "To make sure you are not asleep when the sun begins to rise." "- Anthony De Mello
