“Enlightenment is a destructive
process. It has nothing to do with
becoming better or being happier.”

—   ADYASHANTI, The End of Your World (via birdstakemewithyou)

(via panatmansam)

Love is not selective, just as the light of the sun is not selective. It does not make one person special. It is not exclusive. Exclusivity is not the love of God but the ‘love’ of ego.

However, the intensity with which true love is felt can vary. There may be one person who reflects your love back to you more clearly and more intensely than others, and if that person feels the same toward you, it can be said that you are in a love relationship with him or her.

The bond that connects you with that person is the same bond that connects you with the person sitting next to you on a bus, or with a bird, a tree, a flower. Only the degree of intensity with which it is felt differs.

—   Eckhart Tolle (via lazyyogi)

“We think that by protecting ourselves from suffering, we are being kind to ourselves. The truth is we only become more fearful, more hardened and more alienated. We experience ourselves as being separate from the whole. This separateness becomes like a prison for us—a prison that restricts us to our personal hopes and fears, and to caring only for the people nearest to us. Curiously enough, if we primarily try to shield ourselves from discomfort, we suffer. Yet, when we don’t close off, when we let our hearts break, we discover our kinship with all beings.”

“There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep.”

“How do you let go of attachment to things? Don’t even try. It’s impossible. Attachment to things drops away by itself when you no longer seek to find yourself in them.”

“Loss is nothing else but change, and change is Nature’s delight.”

How to Properly Meditate on Death

panatmansam:

  1. See death a relentless assassin. You cannot escape.
  2. Consider the indifference of the end of life. No matter how successful you are in your ventures, or how much you plan, beg or negotiate there is nothing that can prevent it.
  3. Consider the death of the great and powerful. The wise and the…

“Forgiveness is the healing of the perception of separation.”

—   A Course in Miracles (via lazyyogi)

“Flow with whatever may happen, and let your mind be free: Stay centered by accepting whatever you are doing. This is the ultimate.”

—   Zhuangzi (via thecalminside)

“A thinker sees his own actions as experiments and questions—as attempts to find out something. Success and failure are for him answers above all.”

—   Friedrich Nietzsche (via psych-quotes)
