God created the world in such a way that he still creates it without ceasing.

All that belongs to the past and future is remote and alien to God.

– Meister Eckhart


Do not pursue the past.
Do not lose yourself in the future.
The past no longer is.
The future has not yet come.

Looking deeply at life as it is in the very here and now;
the practitioner dwells in stability and freedom.

– Bhaddekaratta Sutta


If you really know how to live, what better way to start the day than with a smile?…Smiling helps you approach the day with gentleness and understanding….Smile with your whole being.

– Thich Nhat Hanh


I believe that man must get rid of illusions that enslave and paralyze him; that he must become aware of the reality inside and outside of him in order to create a world which needs no illusions.

Freedom and independence can be achieved only when the chains of illusion are broken.

– Erich Fromm


On the day you see the light of your own true Self, you’ll rejoice!
But if you only see forms which from the beginning were in you,
and don’t die to them or know them,
how can you stand the light?

– From the gospel of Thomas


There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.

– Shakespeare


“Allow me to explain the good news my religion proclaims,” said the preacher.
The master was all attention.
“God is love. And God loves and rewards us forever if we observe God’s commandments.”
If?” said the master. “Then the news isn’t all that good, is it?”

– Anthony de Mello


It is easy to understand God as long as you don’t try to explain him.

– Joubert


It is not the world but attachment to it which is the root of all misery.

– Swami Nityaswarupananda
