"Self is the opaque veil that hides the Face of God from us.
It can be removed only in spiritual experience, never by mere instruction."
A. W. Tozer

"The ultimate Truth is beyond words. Doctrines are words.
They're not the Way. The Way is wordless. Words are illusions...
Don't cling to appearances, and you'll break through all barriers..."

"When you give it all up, you get it all.
You end up losing absolutely nothing, other than some well cherished opinions and ideas."
Dennis Genpo Merzel

"Remember: if you can cease all restless activity, your integral nature will appear."
Hua Hu Ching

"The brain was a perfect physical instrument. It served the consciousness of man and woman and the will of the earth. Nothing suffered from its activities. Today the instrument has taken over. The servant has usurped the master's role."
Barry Long

"I say unto you that suffering is not holding you, you are holding suffering.... And when you become good at the art of letting sufferings go, then you'll come to realize what you were dragging around with you. And for that, no one else other than you was responsible.... The truth is that existence wants your life to become a festival...because when you are unhappy, you also throw unhappiness all around."
Osho formerly known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

then you can throw away the mirror; the mirror is not important."
J. Krishnamurti

"Man cannot come to Truth through any organization, through any creed, through any dogma, priest or ritual, not through any philosophic knowledge or psychological technique. He has to find it through the understanding of the contents of his own mind, through observation and not through intellectual analysis or introspective dissection."
J. Krishnamurti

"In your meditation today....
May your body be still and comfortable....
May your head, neck and trunk be aligned....
May your breath be smooth, slow, serene, with no pauses....
May the flow of thoughts in your mind not disturb you....
May your meditation today bring you peace, happiness, and bliss...."
Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati (Swami J)

also divides the universe
so that choices are needed."
Swami Jnaneshvara
Bharati (Swami J)

 "Love is what is left
when you've let go
of all the things you love."
Swami Jnaneshvara  Bharati (Swami J)

"The Sanskrit word for 'action' is 'karma', derived from the root 'kri' which means 'to do'.
One does action and gets remunerated for it, in turn transferring
this remuneration to others for work done by them.
Thus, fruit has arisen out of action, and action out of fruit.
From time immemorial, life has been conducted in this manner.
This is called the wheel of karma.
To act with the motive of gaining fruits is to invite bondage.
Relinquishing the fruits frees us from all miseries."
Swami Rama

"Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't."
Erica Jong

"The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind."
Caroline Myss

"An affirmation is a strong, positive statement that something is already so."
Shakti Gawain

"Love blinds us to faults, hatred to virtues."
Moshe ibn Ezra, "Shirat Yisrael"

"When you hold on to your anger, it becomes like a ball & chain,
holding you captive by the object of your anger."

"If you desire to know where your spiritual work lies; Look to your emotional pain."

From "Wisdom of The Heart" by Alan Cohen

"Love and attachment are two different things. Love means giving
selflessly, excluding none and including all. Attachment is possessing
something. In reality, it is bondage. There is a vast difference
between love and attachment. Western people say, "How can you live
without attachment?" Well, you can live wonderfully without
attachment. You can live on love. Love and attachment are poles
apart. One is the cause of freedom. The other is the cause of bondage."
Swami Rama

"Let the dignity of one's friends be as dear and precious to you as your own."
Pirke Avot 2:15

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed at the things that you
didn't do than by the ones you did do.  So throw off the bowlines.  Sail away
from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore, Dream. Discover."
Mark Twain

"First your teacher introduces you to the real teacher within you,
which is called your own conscience. Then you start counseling
within: "I should not do this because it is not helpful. This is
creating an obstacle for me." The teacher inspires you, gives you
strength--that strength which is already within you. The teacher
introduces you to your own conscience and says, "My child, look
within and be guided by this."
Swami Rama

"At its heart, the spiritual journey is about surrender, letting go.
It's about letting go of our attachments and our fears,
letting go of all the pushing and pulling we do to try
and make things be the way our minds tell us they 'ought' to be."

Ram Dass

"The root of all disturbance, if one will go to
its source, is that no one will blame himself."
Dorotheus of Gaza

"What you have is all His Gift to you.
What you do with what you have is your Gift to Him."
Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda (1916-1993)

"Relationships should be a freeing experience rather than an enslavement.
They should be an energy giver rather than an energy drainer.
It should be that the person you're with enriches you and you enrich him/her.
You don't approach relationships from lack and need.
If you are looking at your partner to fulfill you as a human being, you're in trouble."

"Music bypasses logic and communicates directly to the soul..."

"...establishing binding ethical principles is possible when
we take as our starting point the observation
that we all desire happiness and wish to avoid suffering."

Dalai Lama

"Courage is not the absence of fear
but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear."
Ambrose Redmoon

"Patience is trusting in God's timing"

"Only one thing has to change for us to know happiness in our lives:
where we focus our attention."
Greg Anderson

"You really do not need to know many things,
but you definitely need to practice what you know."
Swami Rama - 'The Art of Joyful Living'

"There is in every true woman's heart a spark of heavenly fire,
which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity;
but which kindles up, and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity."
Washington Irving

"In truth, for people of all ages...healing is a process, recovery is a choice!"
Earl Grollman

"The past situation has just occurred and the future situation has not yet manifested itself so there is a gap between the two. This is basically the 'bardo' (life between life) experience. This is the place where your life is reviewed - where you get another chance to let life teach you and end the cycle of pain."
Chogyam Trungpa

"Thoughts that are true create their own likeness. Those that are false make theirs."
A Course In Miracles

"Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their reputation and social standing, never can bring about a reform. Those who are really in earnest must be willing to be anything or nothing in the world's estimation, and publicly and privately, in season and out, avow their sympathy with despised and persecuted ideas and their advocates, and bear the consequences."
Susan B. Anthony

"The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak, the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls."
Elizabeth Cady Stanton

"Today I was wondering if insane people actually know they are insane or not. Reason is, sometimes I think I am, or going there! But I know it; that's the thing. Or I think I know I worry about that. I mean do you have to NOT think you're insane to be insane? I almost don't want to know the answer to that!"

"Healing requires that you admit the truth about yourself."
Caroline Myss

“The greatest gift you can give those you love is the example of your own life working.”

My name is “I AM”

“Those who are desperately lonely and love-starved are living in an artificial hell of their own creation.
They are lonely and love-starved only because they demand that everyone else prove they love them first.”

“All people are doing the best they can, everywhere, always. No exceptions.
At all times, there is only good.”

“If our beliefs are responsible for our lives, then we can change our belief structure.
If we change our beliefs, our perceptions and actions will necessarily change.”

The Source of All That Is.
“There never was a time when I was not,
Nor you, nor these rulers of men,
Nor will there ever be a time when all of us will cease to be.”
The Bhagavad-Gita

“When we accept others as they are, they change.
When I accept myself as I am, I change.”
Carl Rogers
