We are not ourselves; actually there is nothing we can call a ‘self’ any more; we are manifold, we have as many selves as there are groups to which we belong…The neurotic has overtly a disease from which everybody is suffering…
– J. H. Van Den Burg.
Water, what is that ?
This is what a fish would say if it had a human mind.
– Eckhart Tolle.
This is my ‘all time’ favorite Eckhart quote. It’s used to describe ‘being-ness’. If you don’t ‘get it’… sorry…even trying to explain it, I’ve found some people still don’t understand it.
The thing I like so much about quotes, is, they cut through the mind’s noise, and get us to the truth.
Eckhart Tolle is one of three, of my ‘spiritual’ teachers.
the other two are: ACIM & David Hawkins.
We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned,
so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
– Joseph Campbell.
No one is ever a victim,
although your conquerors would have you believe in your own victimhood.
How else could they conquer you?
– Barbara Marciniak.
Krishnamurti also said…
“One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end”.
In the beginning, lies are sweet.
In the end, lies are bitter.
In the beginning, truth is bitter.
In the end, truth is sweet.
“Perfection is not a polished thing. It is often simply something that is sincerely meant.
Perfection is a job complete, praise given, a prayer heard, it can be kindness shown, thanks offered up.
Perfection is what we discover in each other–what we see reflected back…
…and if perfection alludes us –that doesn’t matter, for what we have within the moment is enough.”
