Might Be

There are three things in life… not worrying what they are, not caring what others may think they are, and enjoying the wonder of what they might be. – Tom Althouse

Exploration

It is the instinct of exploration, the love of the unknown, that brings me into existence. It is in the nature of being to see adventure in becoming, as it is in the very nature of becoming to seek peace in being. This alteration of being and becoming is inevitable; but my home is beyond. – Nisargadatta Maharaj

Seek Not

The moment you start seeking you have moved away from the present, away from yourself, because you are always in the present. The seeker is always in the present and the seeking is in the future; you are not going to meet whatsoever you are seeking. Lao Tzu says “Seek not; otherwise you will miss. Seek not and find. Don’t seek and find.” -Osho

Madness

Be silent and listen: have you recognized your madness and do you admit it? Have you noticed that all your foundations are completely mired in madness? Do you not want to recognize your madness and welcome it in a friendly manner? You wanted to accept everything. So accept madness too. Let the light of your madness shine, and it will suddenly dawn on you. Madness is not to be despised and not to be feared, but instead you should give it life… If you want to find paths, you should also not spurn madness, since it makes up such a great part of your nature… Be glad that you can recognize it, for you will thus avoid becoming its victim. Madness is a special form of the spirit and clings to all teachings and philosophies, but even more to daily life, since life itself is full of craziness and at bottom utterly illogical. Man strives toward reason only so that he can make rules for himself. Life itself has no rules. That is its mystery and its unknown law. What you call knowledge is an attempt to impose something comprehensible on life. – C.G. Jung

The Seeker

The seeker is he who is in search of himself. – Nisargadatta Maharaj

Sacred Waves

Whether the waves are high or low, it is just as sacred, and, as nobody, you are not harmed by it. Within this awakeness is the peace that surpasses understanding, and your life doesn’t need to be doing better. It can do just what life does; it just flows. You don’t care. – Adyashanti

Eloquence

In Silence there is eloquence. Stop weaving and see how the pattern improves. – Rumi

Adjust

Check out on yourself. Don’t check the faults of others. Don’t spend your time checking and faulting others but fault yourself. Examine yourself continuously and self-adjust. Self-adjust with each and every passing day because you are an ordinary person. This is something you have to do in order to break free from this cycle. So please take this to heart. – Yangthang Rinpoche

Source of Life

We know the outer world of sensations and actions, but of our inner world of thoughts and feelings we know very little. The primary purpose of meditation is to become conscious of, and familiar with, our inner life. The ultimate purpose is to reach the source of life and consciousness. – Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Between Dream and Reality

For one who is centered in the third eye, (dream and reality are one) dreams will become real and the whole of reality will become just a dream, because when your dream can become real, you know there is no basic difference between dream and reality. – Osho

Notice

Your way out is to just notice who’s noticing… The one who notices is already free. – Michael A Singer, The Untethered Soul
