1. Before we were born we had no feeling; we were one with the universe. This is called “mind only” or “essence of mind” or “big mind.” After we are separated by birth from this oneness, as the water falling from the waterfall is separated by the wind and rocks, then we have feeling. You have difficulty because you have feeling. You attach to the feeling you have without knowing just how this kind of feeling is created. When you do not realize that you are one with the river, or one with the universe, you have fear. Whether it is separated into drops or not, water is water. Our life and death are the same thing. When we realize this fact we have no fear of death anymore, and we have no actual difficulty in our life.

  3. It doesn’t matter if a cave has been in darkness for 10,000 years or half an hour, once you light a match it is illuminated.

    — - Yogananda (via kiralarose)

  4. It is only the dull, sleepy mind that creates and clings to habit. A mind that is attentive from moment to moment — attentive to what it is saying, attentive to the movement of its hands, of its thoughts, of its feelings — will discover that the formation of further habits has come to an end.

    —Krishnamurti (via purplebuddhaproject)

  5. The mind is above time and space. If you decide not to complain, it will immediately compensate you with intuition.

    —Yogi Bhajan (via cosmofilius)

  6. Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.

    —― Vincent van Gogh (via psych-quotes)

  7. Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

    —Rumi (via observando)

  8. “I want to sing like the birds sing, not worrying about who hears or what they think.” ~ Rumi

    —(via sufithoughts)

  9. Everything depends upon your readiness and willingness to let go into the Unknown, and live from that mysterious and precious condition. You must want to know the truth more than you want to feel secure in order to fully awaken to the fact that you are nothing but ‘Awakeness’ itself.

  10. The absolute letting go is letting go of the one who is letting go.
