Always do what you are afraid to do. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Perpetual Music

Music is perpetual, and only the hearing is intermittent. – Henry David Thoreau

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

Prisoner

Care about what other people think and you will always be their prisoner. – Lao Tzu

Slowly

To live is to be slowly born. – Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Source & Heart

You need not get at it, for you are it. It will get at you, if you give it a chance. Let go your attachment to the unreal and the real will swiftly and smoothly step into its own. Stop imagining yourself being or doing this or that and the realization that you are the source and heart of all will dawn upon you. With this will come great love which is not choice or predilection, nor attachment, but a power which makes all things love-worthy and lovable. – Nisargadatta Maharaj

Be Alive

That is why humans resist life. To be alive is the biggest fear humans have. Death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive – the risk to be alive and express what we really are. Just being ourselves is the biggest fear of humans. We have learned to live our lives trying to satisfy other people’s demands. We have learned to live by other people’s points of view because of the fear of not being accepted and of not being good enough for someone else. – Miguel Ruiz

Homesick

When people hear good music, it makes them homesick for something they never had, and never will have. – Edgar Watson Howe

Spirit Alone

But Spirit alone is Conscious, Law, of itself, is only a force, and matter has no mind of its own. Law is not a thinker but is a doer, while matter cannot think but is thought upon. – Ernest Holmes

Harmony

To think creatively is to bring about harmony between mind, emotion, and action. -Krishnamurti

Love Within

Love is within us. It cannot be destroyed. It can be ignored. To the extent that we abandon love we will feel it has abandoned us. Denying love is our only problem, and embracing it is the only answer. Through the power of love, we can let go of past history and begin again. Love heals, forgives, and makes whole. – Ernest Holmes

Individualized

He must suffer, not because pain is a necessity, but because he must have experience in order to become individualized. – Ernest Holmes

Good

Whatsoever is there is good. – Osho

Ecstatic Motion

Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion. – Rumi

Centering

So remember, centering is the method, not the result. The result is cosmic, oceanic experience. There is no center then. – Osho

Awakeness/Awareness

Student: I’ve made up all of it? Adyashanti: The whole thing. But the awakeness in you is not dreaming. Only the mind is dreaming. It tells itself stories and wants to know if you’re progressing. When you shift into wakefulness, you realize, “Wait, it’s a dream. The mind is creating an altered state of reality, a virtual reality, but it’s not true – it’s just thought.” Thought can tell a million stories inside of awareness, and it’s not going to change awareness one bit. The only thing that’s going to change is the way the body feels. If you tell yourself a sad story, the body reacts to that. And if you tell yourself a self-aggrandizing story, the body feels all puffed up, confident. But when you realize it’s all stories, there can be a vast waking up out of the mind, out of the dream. You don’t awaken, what has eternally been awake realizes itself. That which is eternally awake is what you are.

Love-Worthy

You need not get at it, for you are it. It will get at you, if you give it a chance. Let go your attachment to the unreal and the real will swiftly and smoothly step into its own. Stop imagining yourself being or doing this or that and the realization that you are the source and heart of all will dawn upon you. With this will come great love which is not choice or predilection, nor attachment, but a power which makes all things love-worthy and lovable. – Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Phenomenon

He has known darkness & light, but now he has gone beyond it. Now he sees darkness as part of light, and light as part of darkness, now there is no division. Light and darkness have both become one – degrees of one phenomenon. – Osho, Book of Secrets

Keep Trusting

When you ask without attachment to results, you will get what you want, but not in the way that you imagined. It proves to your self that you need to remove expectation and control, and that the key is to keep trusting. Don’t get caught up in the distractions that come your way, but let them pass by as you stay in the flow. Listen again to the notes between, the messages in the music, and the silence in your mind. Everything else can be let go of, right now, and all the time.   Get the Desktop Wallpaper

Repose

If water derives lucidity from stillness, how much more the faculties of the mind! The mind of the sage, being in repose, becomes the mirror of the universe, the speculum of all creation. – Chuang Tzu

Growing

Not guided, not guarded, not directed, not motivated, but simply growing. – Osho

Suffer Reality

Be real and suffer reality. Suffering is good. Suffering is really a training, a discipline. Suffer it! Suffer anger and suffer love and suffer hate. Remember only one thing: never be false. – Osho

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

Net of Illusions

There can be fundamental and lasting change in the world, there can be love and intelligent fulfillment, only when you wake up and begin to free yourself from the net of illusions, the many illusions which you have created about yourself through fear. – Krishnamurti

Meet Things Anew

So to live each moment now without the burden of the past or of the present, without that crippling memory created by the lack of understanding, mind must ever meet things anew. It is fatal to meet life with the burden of certainty, with the conceit of knowledge, because, after all, knowledge is merely a thing of the past. So when you come to that life with a freshness, then you will know what it is to live without conflict, without this continual straining effort. Then you wander far on the floods of life. – Krishnamurti

No Other Music

The best music is the music that persuades us that there is no other music in the world. – Alex Ross

Direct

You can direct. Once you can direct your dreams you can direct everything, because dream is the very stuff of this world. – Osho, Book of Secrets

The Seeker

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

State of Thought

What a man has, as well as what he is, is the result of the subjective state of his thought. – Ernest Holmes
