How can I be the body? It dissolves to dust. And a mind that is invisible, I cannot trust. Who am I?
Desire is like a fire…in the end it makes us burst. And though we achieve what we want, it will never quench our thirst.
Death is a doorway to God. We celebrate life and mourn death. Shouldn’t we reverse it?
We are nothing! When will we realize that the earth itself is like one grain of sand on the vast beach of creation?
A life without meaning is equal to death. It’s like lying in your grave except that you still have breath.
Do you know who you truly are? Or are you from the truth afar? If the truth you must find. First, you must transcend the mind.
Either we can be conscious of the now, or we can be grazing like a cow. Chewing thoughts one by one, losing life till it is done.
Experience God in the mountains, then in the butterflies, trees and the sea. Then slowly you will realize, that God is in you & me!
Before enlightenment; chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment; chop wood, carry water.
Smiling away your troubles requires a clear conscience that harbors no insincerity.
– Paramahansa Yogananda
Be tolerant of those who are lost on their path. Ignorance, conceit, anger, jealousy and greed stem from a lost soul. Pray that they will find guidance.
– Elder Wisdom
Man suffers only because he takes seriously what the gods made for fun.
– Alan Watts
I once thought that if I could ask God one question, I would ask how the universe began, because once I knew that, all the rest is simply equations. But as I got older I became less concerned with how the universe began. Rather, I would want to know why he started the universe. For once I knew that answer, then I would know the purpose of my own life.
– Albert Einstein
We all want pleasure, we don’t want pain. If we don’t realize ‘who we are’ and ‘why we are here’, our life will go in vain.
We don’t need to suffer, we don’t have to cry. If only we question and find out, “Who am I?” We can be blissful like a bird in the sky.
I watch my body. I watch my mind. But who is this ‘I’ ? This truth we must find!
When I die. Please don’t cry ! For I will be in union with my lord in the sky.
Spirituality really lost its way when it became a stick to beat people with: ‘Do this or you’ll burn in hell.”
– Ricky Gervais
Not men or women, we are just puppets that dance! Everything is programmed. Nothing happens by chance!
When you accept rather than wonder. And replace hope with surrender enjoy the show!
If there is garbage in your mind, and it’s full of junk, it’s time to tame your ‘monkey mind’, and make it into a monk!
People who don’t understand want to know, but people who know, don’t want to understand.
You are searching for happiness outside, when in reality, it is inside! How will you ever find it?
Every pleasure ends in pain. Loss follows every gain. The only way to eternal bliss is self-realization.
If only we realize who we are and who God is, we will find everlasting happiness.
If we want to realize the truth, we must understand the law of cause and effect. Gold is the cause. The ring, the chain and the bracelet are effects. Water is the cause. The waves, the iceberg are effects. Divinity is the cause. We are effects. Realize the truth!
We are unable to realize who we are because the mind wanders and the senses desire and thus, we continue to be who we are not.
It’s just a drama. We come and we go. Why fear? Why worry? Just enjoy the show!
Man has invented Google, through which anything we can find, but have you ever wondered, who created the mind?
Man is so busy creating cosmetics for the skin, that he has not discovered what lies within!
