It does not shout at you, that is true.

And if you are a little silent you will start feeling your way.”

Those who succeed owe their success to perseverance.”  

Ramana Maharshi


“The guesthouse. This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.”


“What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance,

is to understand fear: that means: watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it.

We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it. “

Jiddu Krishnamurti

“It is not about the goal.

It is about growing to become the person

that can accomplish the goal.”

then you are listening not only to the words,

but also to the feeling of what is being conveyed,

to the whole of it, not part of it.”

Jiddu Krishnamurti


 “Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence.

Inaction is not only the result, but the cause of fear.

Perhaps the action you take will be successful,

perhaps a different action or adjustments will have to follow.

But any action is better than no action at all.” 

Norman Vincent Peale

“Learn to look without imagination, to listen without distortion: that is all. Stop attributing names and shapes to the essentially nameless and formless, realize that every mode of perception is subjective, that what is seen or heard, touched or smelt, felt or thought, expected or imagined, is in the mind and not in reality, and you will experience peace and freedom from fear.” 

Nisargadatta Maharaj

“If there is peace in your mind you will find peace with everybody.

If your mind is agitated you will find agitation everywhere.

So first find peace within and you will see this inner peace reflected everywhere else.

You are this peace! You are happiness, find out.

Where else will you find peace if not within you?”


“Millions of people are suffering:

they want to be loved but they don’t know how to love.

And love cannot exist as a monologue;

it is a dialogue, a very harmonious dialogue.”


“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes.

Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow.

Let reality be reality.

Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”

Lao Tzu

“Nearly all mankind is more or less unhappy

because nearly all do not know the true Self.

Real happiness abides in Self-knowledge alone.

All else is fleeting.

To know one’s Self is to be blissful always.”

Ramana Maharshi

“If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.

Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.

So if you love a flower, let it be.

Love is not about possession.

Love is about appreciation.”

“As long as you think the cause of your problem is “out there”

-as long as you think that anyone or anything is responsible for your suffering-

the situation is hopeless.

It means that you are forever in the role of victim,

that you are suffering in paradise.”

Byron Katie

“No one is to be called an enemy,

all are your benefactors,

and no one does you harm.

You have no enemies except yourselves.”

“One of the main reasons that we lose our enthusiasm in life

is because we become ungrateful …

we let what was once a miracle become common to us.

We get so accustom to his goodness it becomes a routine …”
