When by deep, daily meditation you become able to transfer your consciousness from the finite to the Infinite, you will be free. You are not meant to be a prisoner of the body. You are a child of God; you must live up to that divine birthright.

~ Paramahansa Yogananda
Nothing in the world
is as soft and yielding as water.
Yet for dissolving the hard and inflexible,
nothing can surpass it.

The soft overcomes the hard;
the gentle overcomes the rigid.
Everyone knows this is true,
but few can put it into practice.

Therefore the Master remains
serene in the midst of sorrow.
Evil cannot enter his heart.
Because he has given up helping,
he is people's greatest...

Questioner: Why do we seek worldly happiness, even after having tasted one's own natural spontaneous happiness?

Nisargadatta Maharaj: When the mind is engaged in serving the body, happiness is lost. To regain it, it seeks pleasure. The urge to be happy is right, but the means of securing it are misleading, unreliable and destructive of true happiness.

~ from 'I Am That', chapter 90
Striving and craving,
For pleasure or prosperity,
These are your enemies,
Springing up to destroy you
From the presumptions of virtue.

Let them all go.
Hold on to nothing.

Every good fortune,
Wives, friends, houses, lands,
All these gifts and riches...

They are a dream,
A juggling act,
A traveling show!

A few days, and they are gone.

Consider.

Wherever there is desire,...

He who sees that One
in this ocean of death,
he who sees that One Life
in this floating universe,
who realises that One
who never changes,
unto him belongs eternal peace;
unto none else, unto none else.

~ Swami Vivekananda
I have arrived. I am home.
My destination is in each step.

~ Thich Nhat Hanh
The void which is the infinite and all-encompassing one whole without a second, which is just the effulgence of pure wisdom, which is completely devoid of visible phenomena and which consists of the aspect `I' is the seed which fructifies as liberation, bestowing salvation by enabling one to unite with the Supreme.

~ Devikalottara
You have woken up late, lost and perplexed but
don't rush to your books looking for knowledge.
Pick up a flute instead and let your heart play.

~ Rumi
Give up defining yourself -
to yourself or to others.

You won't die.
You will come to life.

And don't be concerned
with how others define you.
When they define you,
they are limiting themselves,
so it's their problem.

~ Eckhart Tolle
The world has gone insane with work.
You alone have the courage to rest.
The world has lost its playfulness, its joy of being.
You alone have the courage to live like a free child.
To touch life at the point of creation.
To laugh at cats and snow.
People seem busy, but they are running.
Running from their feelings.
Running from shame and guilt.
Running so they don't have to stop.
And...

Difficulties in everyday life are the very road of Tao;
those who cultivate virtue encounter them calmly,
and openly develop themselves in response to them.
This way they become as natural, as complete,
and as eternal as the Tao itself.

~ Lao Tzu

...from 'Hua Hu Ching' (v.36)
What Brahman is cannot be described in words. Somebody once said that everything in the world has been made impure, like food that has touched the tongue, and that Brahman alone remains undefiled. The meaning is this: All scriptures and holy books -- the Vedas, the Puranas, the Tantras, and so forth -- may be said to have been defiled because their contents have been uttered by the tongues of...

Do you hear the barking of the dog out there? You translate it and say that is the barking of a dog. But if you are just aware of that, it echoes here inside of you. There is no separation from you. There is no translation. You are barking, and not the dog out there.

~ U. G. Krishnamurti
Abidance in the state of thought-free alert Awareness, is the state of mukti beyond thought and expression. The emergence of thought is the bondage of untold suffering. Abidance in the Self is the true non-dual samadhi, and that alone leads one to the eternal bliss of mukti.

~ Ribhu Gita (Ch.21, v.41)
Real silence is the cessation of talking — of both the mouth and of the mind. This is not the kind of silence that oppresses us. It is a very elegant kind of silence, a very powerful kind of silence. It is the silence that heals and nourishes us.

~ Thich Nhat Hanh
Don't work toward freedom;
But allow the work itself
To be freedom.

~ Dogen
When the seeker realizes himself as the eternal servant, this is a state of non-duality. ‘Eternal servant’ denotes that there is nothing transient in this relationship. THAT manifests as forms and modes of being.

If someone who aspires at the Formless realizes Him as the One-without-a second, but fails to realize Him in the field of His Divine Play, his realization is not complete, for he has...

I am no longer the wave of consciousness thinking itself separated from the sea of cosmic consciousness. I am the ocean of Spirit that has become the wave of human life.

~ Paramahansa Yogananda

...from "Metaphysical Meditations"
Until the whole world is free to agree with you or disagree with you, until you have given the freedom to everyone to like you or not like you, to love you or hate you, to see things as you see them, or to see things differently - until you have given the whole world its freedom - you'll never have your freedom.

~ Adyashanti
All relationships are not more than the walls of sand that the children make at the beach. There is no relationship worth living with like the relationship with your own Self, and you can never get rid of That relationship.

~ Papaji
