The words of some men are thrown forcibly against you and adhere like burrs. -Henry David Thoreau, naturalist and author (1817-1862)
“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is
translated through you into action, and because there is only one of
you in all time, this expression is unique. And, if you block it, it
will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”
~ Martha Graham
“You need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and
listen. You need not even listen, simply wait. You need not even
wait,just learn to become quiet, and still, and solitary.
The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked. It has no
choice; it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”
~ Franz Kafka
Step out of the circle of time and into the circle of love.
Realization is simply to give birth to something within oneself.
It is difficult to find happiness in oneself but it is impossible to find it anywhere else.
Metaphysician: A man who goes into a dark cellar at midnight without a light looking for a black cat that is not there.
- Bowen of Colwood
We have not come here to take prisoners but to surrender ever more deeply to freedom and joy.
Know that what appears to be Love for an ‘other’ is really Love of Self because ‘other’ doesn’t exist. So this innermost Love can be given to no ‘other’. Love of friends is for the sake of Self, not for body to body. True love has no Lover or Beloved because all Love is Love of Self.
- Sri Poonja
