QUOTES (IX)

“Truth is not to be found outside.

No teacher, no scripture can give it to you.

It is inside you and if you wish to attain it,

seek your own company.

Be with yourself.”

Osho

“What you are aware of

you are in control of;

what you are not aware of

is in control of you.”

“Love is patient, love is kind.

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,

it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

Saint Paul

“We cannot teach people anything;

we can only help them discover it within themselves.”

“It is not decided by votes what is true;

otherwise we could never come to any truth, ever.

People will vote what is comfortable

and lies are very comfortable

because you do not have to do anything about them,

you just have to believe.

Truth needs a great effort, discovery, risk

and it needs you to walk alone on a path

that nobody has traveled before.”

Osho

“Be present as the watcher of your mind — of your thoughts and emotions as well as your reactions in various situations. Be at least as interested in your reactions as in the situation or person that causes you to react. Notice also how often your attention is in the past or future. Don’t judge or analyze what you observe. Watch the thought, feel the emotion, observe the reaction. Don’t make a personal problem out of them. You will then feel something more powerful than any of those things you observe: the still, observing presence itself behind the content of your mind, the silent watcher.”

Eckhart Tolle

“Most people tell you they want to get out of kindergarden, but don’t believe them. Don’t believe them! All they want you to do is to mend their broken toys. “Give me back my wife. Give me back my job. Give me back my money. Give me back my reputation, my success.” This is what they want; they want their toys replaced. That’s all. Even the best psychologist will tell you that, that people don’t really want to be cured. What they want is relief; a cure is painful.”

Anthony De Mello

“See if you can catch yourself complaining in either speech or thought, about a situation you find yourself in, what other people do or say, your surroundings, your life situation, even the weather. To complain is always nonacceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness.”

Eckhart tolle

“To be free from thoughts is itself meditation.

You begin by letting thoughts flow and watching them.

The very observation slows down the mind till it stops altogether.

Once the mind is quiet, keep it quiet.

Don’t get bored with peace, be in it, go deeper into it.”

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj – I Am That

“Waking up is unpleasant, you know. You are nice and comfortable in bed. It is irritating to be woken up. That’s the reason the wise guru will not attempt to wake people up. I hope I’m going to be wise here and make no attempt whatsoever to wake you up if you are asleep. It is really none of my business, even though I say to you at times, “Wake up!” My business is to do my thing, to dance my dance. If you profit from it fine; if you don’t, too bad! As the Arabs say, “The nature of rain is the same, but it makes thorns grow in the marshes and flowers in the gardens.”

 Anthony de Mello

“The psychological condition of fear is divorced from any concrete and true immediate danger.It comes in many forms: unease, worry, anxiety, nervousness, tension, dread, phobia, and so on. This kind of psychological fear is always of something that might happen, not of something that is happening now. You are in the here and now, while your mind is in the future. This creates an anxiety gap. And if you are identified with your mind and have lost touch with the power and simplicity of the Now, that anxiety gap will be your constant companion. You can always cope with the present moment, but you cannot cope with something that is only a mind projection – you cannot cope with the future.”

Eckhart Tolle
