Hindu wisdom quote


“He who does not long for joy in joy will not suffer sorrow in sorrow. 
He who does not distinguish pain from pleasure 
Becomes so distinguished even enemies hope to pay homage.”

On inner evolution...


“Your true evolution is not what you do out there. That's secondary. Your true evolution is to do with the arising of awareness in you as you go about your life.”

“There is no fire like greed and no crime like hatred. 
There is no sorrow like being bound to this world; 
there is no happiness like freedom.”

Anger....


“If those who are like wanton children
are by nature prone to injure others, 
what point is there in being angry...
like resenting fire for its heat?”

Attachment...



Overcoming attachment does not mean becoming cold and indifferent. On the contrary, it means learning to have relaxed control over our mind through understanding the real causes of happiness and fulfillment, and this enables us to enjoy life more and suffer less.”

On Manifestation....


No matter what it is, if you really want it, and if you get out of the way of it, it will happen. It must be. It is Law. It can be no other way. It's the way this Universe is established. If you want it and you relax, it will happen.

Zen wisdom...

“There is really nothing you must be and there is nothing you must do. There is really nothing you must have and there is nothing you must know. There is really nothing you must become. However, it helps to understand that fire burns, and when it rains, the earth gets wet.”

Rumi wisdom...

“Demolish this house that a hundred more may be built. Do not be afraid that treasure lies beneath this house. A thousand houses more shall you build with just one treasure in hand. This house is destined to fall to ruin. That treasure is bound to be unearthed, but then that treasure will not be yours.”

Rumi
