    “Love is a mystery, a visitor from the Beyond. Your whole life you have been against love. We train the mind from the very beginning, through school and university. But the mind wants nothing of which it cannot ask ‘why’.”

    — Osho

  • "The Tao is constant and one who seeks the Tao unlearns something new everyday.
    And by unlearning something everyday, the Taoist arrives at non-action"

    “Self-knowledge involves relationship. To know oneself is to study one self in action with another person. Relationship is a process of self evaluation and self revelation. Relationship is the mirror in which you discover yourself - to be is to be related.”

    “But if you are looking for the eternal, then be like the prudent merchant: sell all that you have got. Sell it and purchase the one, the one pearl of your inner being which cannot be drowned, which cannot be snatched away – because that pearl is you. You can possess only yourself, nothing else can be really possessed.”

    — Osho

    Sometimes it takes a long time to learn how to feel like yourself.

    “Just as in the body, eye and ear develop as organs of perception, as senses for bodily processes, so does a man develop in himself soul and spiritual organs of perception through which the soul and spiritual worlds are opened to him. For those who do not have such higher senses, these worlds are dark and silent, just as the bodily world is dark and silent for a being without eyes and ears.”

    ― Rudolf Steiner

    “The agony of breaking through personal limitations is the agony of spiritual growth. Art, literature, myth and cult, philosophy, and ascetic disciplines are instruments to help the individual past his limiting horizons into spheres of ever-expanding realization. As he crosses threshold after threshold, conquering dragon after dragon, the stature of the divinity that he summons to his highest wish increases, until it subsumes the cosmos. Finally, the mind breaks the bounding sphere of the cosmos to a realization transcending all experiences of form - all symbolizations, all divinities: a realization of the ineluctable void.”

    ― Joseph Campbell

    “What the mushroom says is that for one human being to seek enlightenment from another is like one grain of sand on a beach seeking enlightenment from another.”

    Modern society is infatuated with wealth, power and youth; it advocates cleverness without wisdom and glorifies the superficial, the superfluous, and the coarse.
    It exploits human vice and turns it into virtue, and assaults us with ceaseless advertising which promotes a culture of indulgence.
    When lived with a mind steeped in the toxins of sensuality and pride, life becomes a hollow shell, empty of meaning and significance. Is it any wonder people are angry?

    “You don’t need any goal, you are already perfect. You cannot be like Buddha or Christ, because god only creates unique individuals. God never repeats.”

  • Not a quote as such, but there's always room for Rumi...🙏🙏🙏

    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.

    ~Jalaluddin Rumi~

    “The mind operates in two dimensions; one is horizontal, and is all about 'more', always having or getting more. More money, more status. The other dimension is vertical, the spiritual. Sannyas is about retiring, giving up the horizontal movement. Just retire, retire every day anew to find freedom from the mind's demands for more."

    “Here’s to the crazy ones.
    The misfits.
    The rebels.
    The troublemakers.
    The round pegs in the square holes.
    The ones who see things differently.
    They’re not fond of rules.
    And they have no respect for the status quo.
    You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.
    About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
    Because they change things.
    They invent. They imagine. They heal.
    They explore. They create. They inspire.
    They push the human race forward.
    Maybe they have to be crazy.
    How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
    Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written?
    Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
    We make tools for these kinds of people.
    While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
    Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

    When a fool hears of the Way, they laugh at it;
    Yet, if the fool did not laugh at it, it would not be the way.
    Indeed, if you are seeking the Way,
    Listen for the laughter of fools.
