Knowing the Truth

MAN, BY THINKING, CAN BRING INTO HIS EXPERIENCE WHATSOEVER HE DESIRES, IF HE THINKS CORRECTLY AND BECOMES A LIVING EMBODIMENT OF HIS THOUGHTS. This is not done by holding thoughts but by KNOWING THE TRUTH. – Ernest Holmes

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

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

Remember

Whatsoever you are doing, remember this is a dream. While eating, remember this is a dream. While walking, remember this is a dream. Let your mind continuously remember while you are awake that everything is a dream. -Osho

Follow Then

Follow then the shining ones, the wise, the awakened, the loving, for they know how to work and forbear. – Buddha

Clear Focus

For many millennia the people of Earth have been continuously creating their experience by default and neglect. Thoughts and feelings, words and ideas are in a constant search to attract their likenesses. To produce effective and desirable results, thoughts must be clearly focused and directed toward a desired goal. The realization of this knowledge is of key importance in the initiation of humankind into a higher state of awareness. – Barbara Marciniak

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

Heart

Do something every day that advances you not in the direction of some far-off goal, but in the direction of your heart. It will not lead you astray. – Charlie Amber

Call it Freedom

Don’t call it uncertainty – call it wonder. Don’t call it insecurity – call it freedom. – Osho

Disillusionment

Wisdom comes by disillusionment. – George Santayana

Play of Life

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

Cycles

In all things there is a law of cycles. – Tacitus

Create

You build the universe with your creations.

Dreamlike

There is no good reason to say that yesterday was more solid and real than last night’s dream, except that we cling to our dreamlike experience of yesterday more than to our experience of last night’s dream. – 7th Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche

The Beauty

The image is a dream. The beauty is real. – Richard Bach, Illusions

Deep Silence

Even with its storms, winter is the quietest time of year. There is nothing like the quiet after a storm. If you have had the privilege of being in the mountains right after a snowfall when there is no wind, nothing is moving, the snow is sucking up every sound, and you hear a deep silence everywhere, you know how potent this silence is. – Adyashanti

Endless Seeker

No facts are to me sacred; none are profane; I simply experiment, an endless seeker, with no Past at my back. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Fleeting Moment

Music is always migrating from its point of origin to its destiny in someone’s fleeting moment of experience. – Alex Ross

Send Light

Send the light of your own loving ahead of you. When you get there, the loving will have prepared a place for you. Be kind, gentle, and enjoy the journey. – Peter McWilliams

Transcendent Destiny

Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string. Accept the place the divine providence has found for you, the society of your contemporaries, the connection of events. Great men have always done so, and confided themselves childlike to the genius of their age, betraying their perception that the absolutely trustworthy was seated at their heart, working through their hands, predominating in all their being. And we are now men, and must accept in the highest mind the same transcendent destiny; and not minors and invalids in a protected corner, not cowards fleeing before a revolution, but guides, redeemers, and benefactors, obeying the Almighty effort, and advancing on Chaos and the Dark. – Emerson

Bliss

Innocence is Bliss

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

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.

Wonder

What is your reality? What is this wonder-filled universe? – Devi to Shiva

World of Shamans

The internal dialogue is what grounds people in the daily world. The world is such and such or so and so, only because we talk to ourselves about its being such and such and so and so. The passageway into the world of shamans opens up after the warrior has learned to shut off his internal dialogue. – Carlos Castaneda

Purity

When there is no dreaming, you become pure space. This purity, this innocence, this non-dreaming consciousness, is what is known as enlightenment – the awakening. – Osho

Slowly

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

Homesick

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

Deepest Nature

One should be always on the trail of one’s own deepest nature. For it is the fearless living out of your own essential nature that connects you to the divine.  – Henry David Thoreau

Flash

To believe in something not yet proved and to underwrite it with our lives: it is the only way we can leave the future open. Man, surrounded by facts, permitting himself no surmise, no intuitive flash, no great hypothesis, no risk, is in a locked cell. Ignorance cannot seal the mind and imagination more surely. – Lillian Smith
