Be the Buddha

Instead of quoting the Buddha,
be the Buddha.

Eckhart Tolle

Love is Not a Feeling

Love is not a feeling,
it's an activity and
also a responsibility.

Sharon Salzberg

God in Everything

It's better to see God in everything
than to try to figure it out.

Neem Karoli Baba

The Next Moment

You can plan for a hundred years.
But you don't know what will happen
the next moment.

Neem Karoli Baba

Where the Light Comes In

I said, "What about my eyes?"
God said, "Keep them on the road."
I said, "What about my passion?"
God said, "Keep it burning."
I said, "What about my heart?"
God said, "Tell me what you hold inside it."
I said, "Pain and sorrow."
He said, "Stay with it. The wound is the place
where the light comes in."

Rumi

Consequences

In nature, there are neither rewards nor punishments.
There are consequences.

Robert Green Ingersoll

Biggest Barrier

The biggest barrier to awakening
is the belief that it is something rare.
