To Yourself

Your only obligation in any lifetime is to be true to yourself. – Richard Bach, Illusions

Just Be

You need not worry about your worries. Just be. Don’t be restless about ‘being quiet’, miserable about ‘being happy’. Just be aware that you are and remain aware – don’t say: “Yes I am; what’s next?” There is no ‘next’ in ‘I am’. It is a timeless state. – Nisargadatta Maharaj

Core of Life

Let silence take you to the core of life. – Rumi

Play of Life

Creation is the play of Life upon Itself through Divine Self-Imagination – Ernest Holmes

Glide and Sing

The sun shines not on us, but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us, thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing. – John Muir

Sovereignty

You were born to this world with sovereignty over your mind and over your life. Your abilities to think, to feel, to learn and to love are your liberty. In you, these capacities are infinite. You have infinite worth. – Jeremy Locke

Eternal Name

The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. The unnameable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. Free from desire, you realize the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source. This source is called darkness. Darkness within darkness. The gateway to all understanding. – Tao Te Ching, Ch.1, interpreted by Stephen Michell

Potentiality

Desire not, fear not, observe the actual, as and when it happens, for you are not what happens, you are to whom it happens. Ultimately even the observer you are not. You are the ultimate potentiality of which the all-embracing consciousness is the manifestation and expression. – Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

True Self

Being your true self, being your true nature, is different than experiencing it with thought. Realize that you are the mystery, and that you can’t really look at the mystery because you are only capable of looking from the mystery. There is a very awake, alive, and loving mystery, and that’s what is seeing through your eyes at this moment. That’s what is hearing through your ears at this moment. Instead of trying to figure it all out, which is impossible, I suggest you ask, “What’s ultimately behind this set of eyes?” Turn around to see what is looking. Encounter pure mystery, which is pure spirit, and wake up to what you are. – Adyashanti

Chosen Ones

They are the chosen ones who have surrendered. – Rumi

Just Dance

However awkward, just dance. That will give you the feeling of the heart. – Osho

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

Perceiving

Discover all that you are not — body, feelings thoughts, time, space, this or that — nothing, concrete or abstract, which you perceive can be you. The very act of perceiving shows that you are not what you perceive. – Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Acceptance

Acceptance is transcendence. And if you accept yourself totally, suddenly you are thrown to your center. – Osho

You Are Not

You are not a walking mistake. You are not a problem to be solved. – Adyashanti

Sweet Release

Enjoy the sweet release of surrender when you let go of your old thought habits and realize that you can change them at any time. You can change anything at any time, once you remove the restrictions of ideas that no longer serve you.

Into the Unknown

What else should our lives be but a continual series of beginnings, of painful settings out into the unknown, pushing off from the edges of consciousness into the mystery of what we have not yet become. – David Malouf, An Imaginary Life

Earnestness

To remember what needs to be remembered is the secret of success. You come to it through earnestness. – Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Dictate of the Light

The dictate of the light says: Know yourself and what you are. The dark replies, By all means, but then become afraid. – Tanith Lee

Direction of Dreams
