Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles.
Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. ~Paramahansa's Guru's Guru

...character is neither inherited nor moulded by the pressures of the environment, but is formed only by the exercise of the individual's power of choice.

Outside pressures can cause a person to change his behaviour, but only he himself can change his intentions.

Quote:
“Once the soul awakens, the search begins and you can never go back.
From then on, you are inflamed with a special longing that will never again let you linger in the lowlands of complacency and partial fulfillment.
The eternal makes you urgent.
You are loath to let compromise or the threat of danger hold you back from striving toward the summit of fulfillment.”
― John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

“You have traveled too fast over false ground;
Now your soul has come to take you back.

Take refuge in your senses, open up
To all the small miracles you rushed through.

Become inclined to watch the way of rain
When it falls slow and free.

Imitate the habit of twilight,
Taking time to open the well of color
That fostered the brightness of day.

Draw alongside the silence of stone
Until its calmness can claim you.”
― John O'Donohue

“Real friendship or love is not manufactured or achieved by an act of will or intention. Friendship is always an act of recognition.”

“It could be a meeting on the street, or a party or a lecture, or just a simple, banal introduction, then suddenly there is a flash of recognition and the embers of kinship glow. There is an awakening between you, a sense of ancient knowing.”
― John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

“The beauty that emerges from woundedness is a beauty infused with feeling; a beauty different from the beauty of landscape and the cold perfect form.
This is a beauty that has suffered its way through the ache of desolation until the words or music emerged to equal the hunger and desperation at its heart.
It must also be said that not all woundedness succeeds in finding its way through to beauty of form.
Most woundedness remains hidden, lost inside forgotten silence.
Indeed, in every life there is some wound that continues to weep secretly, even after years of attempted healing.
Where woundedness can be refined into beauty a wonderful transfiguration takes place.”

― John O'Donohue
