Be the Buddha

Instead of quoting the Buddha,
be the Buddha.

Eckhart Tolle

A Heavy One

You say, "Everything in my life, the highs and the lows,
are all grist for the mill of going home. I will eat it all."
And it's even farther out than that because at that point
your suffering becomes functional for your awakening.
Your suffering literally becomes grace. That's a heavy one.

Ram Dass

Just Ocean

Even when I think I'm a wave,
I'm just ocean.

Krishna Das

Who Are You?

When I don't know who I am, I serve you.
When I know who I am, I am you.

Lord Hanuman, Hindu Monkey God

We Are Infinite

As souls, we are not under time or space.
We are infinite.

Ram Dass

Everyday Zen

Zen is not some kind of excitement, but
concentration on our usual everyday routine.

Shunryu Suzuki

I Saw and I Know

I saw more than I could know,
and I know more than I could speak.
