“The cosmos is all that is or ever was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the cosmos stir us—Their is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation. As if a distant memory or falling from a height. We know we are falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.”

—Carl Sagan

"How did you finally get out of the dream? You see that's my problem, its like i'm trapped. I keep thinking that i'm waking up but i'm still in a dream. It seems like its going on forever. I can't get out of it. I want to wake up for real. How do you really wake up?" - Waking Life

Learn to love without condition.
Talk without bad intention.
Give without any reason.
And most of all, care for people without any expectation

The nitrogen in our DNA
The calcium in our teeth
The iron in our blood
The carbon in our apple pies
were made in the interiors of collapsing stars.
We are made of star stuff

I like this. Our running group did a long distance trail run in the country/forest side. Resonates well. :sunny:

You must not under any pretense allow your mind to dwell on any thought
that is not positive, constructive, optimistic, kind.

If you start off with a lie, your truth will never be understood wholly.

Be careful with your words. Once they are said they can only be forgiven, not forgotten. - Sarah Doubts

“Every path leads homeward, every step is birth, every step is death, every grave is mother.”
Hermann Hesse

“Man is a gateway, through which from the outer world of gods, daemons, and souls ye pass into the inner world; out of the greater into the smaller world.”
Carl Jung / Basilides - ‘seven sermons to the dead’- sermon 7.


“If I am a witch, then so be it, I said. And I took to eating black things - huitlacoche the corn mushroom, coffee, dark chiles, the bruised part of fruit, the darkest, blackest things to make me hard and strong.”
-Sandra Cisneros, “Eyes of Zapata”

“A mythological order is a system of images that gives consciousness a sense of meaning in existence, which, my dear friend, has no meaning––it simply is. But the mind goes asking for meanings; it can’t play unless it knows (or makes up) the rules.
Mythologies present games to play: how to make believe you’re doing thus and so. Ultimately, through the game, you experience that positive thing which is the experience of being-in-being, of living meaningfully. That’s the first function of a mythology, to evoke in the individual a sense of grateful affirmative awe before the monstrous mystery that is existence.”
-Joseph Campbell, Pathways to Bliss.

I heard a good one the other day though probably can't remember it rightly...along the lines of "careful what you say to yourself because you're listening". it kind of pulled me up a bit.

Arcturus 28-04-2016 02:53 PM

My alltime fave::

Silence grew and became intense, wider and deeper. The brain which had listened to the silence of the fields and groves was itself now silent, it had become quiet, naturally, without any enforcement. It was still, deep within itself, like a bird that folds its wings it had folded upon itself, it had entered into depth which were beyond itself. It was a dimension the brain could not capture or understand and there was no observer witnessing this depth. Every part of one's whole being was alert, sensitive but intensely still. This new, this depth was expanding, exploding, going away, developing in it's own explosions, out of time and beyond space.

From "Krishnamurti's Notebook"

I'm not sure if anyone else ever wrote this, but it came to me one day and made me laugh out loud...


Don't live in the past, tense.


:wink:


And of course ...


Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase "each other" doesn't make any sense.

mevlana jelaluddin rumi - 13th century

The day you decide that you are
more interested in being aware of
your thoughts than you are in the
thoughts themselves - that is the
day you will find your way out

"What other people say about you is not a reflection
of you, but a reflection of them."

Yes and vice versa....I learn more about myself
when I look at what I'm thinking about another! :smile:

In spiritual life, higher and lower is not about how much you can accomplish;
Higher and lower is about the purity of your motivation, the spirit of your compassion and love

Nishant Navin - on who is higher and lower

Happy moments I praise God,

Quiet moments I worship God,
Difficult moments I trust God,
But most importantly,
All Moments I Thank God

And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
