Even as fire finds peace
in its resting place without fuel,
when thoughts become silent,
the soul finds peace in its own source.

When the mind is silent,
then it can enter into a world
which is far beyond the mind.

~ Upanishads

Find that place
which is effortlessly
at rest within itself.
Be there

Be one with that.

Inuit Traditional Song

September 25, 2013

I think over again my small adventures, my fears, those small ones that seemed so big, all those vital things I had to get and to reach, and yet there is only one great thing; to live and see the great day that dawns, and the light that fills the world.

All we need to do is set our sails.

Kahlil Gibran

September 20, 2013

I love you when you bow in your Mosque,
kneel in your Temple, pray in your Church.
For you and I are of one religion, and it is the Spirit.

I want first of all to be at peace with myself.
I want a singleness of eye, a purity of intention,
A central core to my life that will enable me
To carry out these obligations and activities as well as I can.
I want, in fact, to borrow from the language of the saints :
To live ‘in grace’ as much of the time as possible.
I am not using this term in a strictly theological sense.
By grace I mean an inner harmony, essentially spiritual,
Of which can be translated into outward harmony.
I am seeking perhaps what Socrates asked for
In the prayer from the Phaedrus when he said,
“May the outward and inward man be One.”
I would like to achieve a state of inner spiritual grace
From which I could function and give
As I was meant to in the eye of God.

Alan Watts

Life only exists at this very moment,
and in this moment it is infinite and eternal,
for the present moment is infinitely small;
Before we can measure it,
it has gone, and yet it exists forever…

Sometimes letting things go
is an act of far greater power
than defending or hanging on.

Sutta Nipata

September 11, 2013

The one who wanders independent in the world,
free from opinions and viewpoints,
does not grasp them and enter
into disputations and arguments.

As the lotus rises on its stalk
unsoiled by the mud and the water,
so the wise one speaks of peace and
is unstained by the opinions of the world.

~ Sutta Nipata

Ignorance can be compared to a dark room in which you sleep. No matter how long the room has been dark, an hour or a million years, the moment the lamp of awareness is lit the entire room becomes luminous.

You are that luminosity. You are that clear light.

~ Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche
