What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
(Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.
Sadguru, the eternal guru, is the road itself. Once you realise the road is the goal and that you are always on the road, not to reach a goal, but to enjoy it´s beauty and wisdom, life ceases to be a task and becomes natural and simple, in itself an ecstacy.
. (Sri Maharaj Nisargadatta)
Man is free at the moment he wishes to be.
Do not do anything harmful; do only what is good; purify and train your own mind: this is the path to enlightenment.
Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.
The mind is by nature luminous, pure and perfect.
It´s not a matter of faith, it´s a matter of practice.
(Thich Nhat Hanh)
The journey is the reward.
Seekers want to understand and explore themselves as well as the universe with all it´s mysteries, both known and unknowable.
(Lama Surya Das)
Without going out of my door
I can know all things on earth.
Without looking out my window
I can know the ways of heaven.
Lead us from darkness to the light
lead us from illusion to wisdom
lead us from death to deathlessness.
Lead us from conflict and suffering to harmony, peace and happiness.
(Upanishads 900 BC)
God has no religion.
The most beautiful emotion we can experience is the mystical.
Yoga is that which stills the mind.
Be humble for you are made of dung. Be noble for you are made of stars.
Every day people are straying away from the church and going back to god.
This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
There is no greater magic than meditation. To transform the negative into the positive. To transform darkness into light - that is the miracle of meditation.
Joy is prayer - Joy is strength - Joy is love - Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
To know that you live in an imaginary world of your own creation is the dawn of wisdom.
(Sri Maharaj Nisargadatta)
