AXIOM 21: “Succeed in not fearing the lion, and the lion will fear YOU. Say to suffering, ‘I will that you shall become a pleasure,’ and it will prove to be such — and even more than a pleasure, it will be a blessing.

A Quote From Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse (via purplebuddhaproject)

and like everything else this strange morning the words became symbols, wrote themselves all over the grey-green walls. If only she could put them together, she felt, write them out in some sentence, then she would have got at the truth of things.

A Quote From Buckminster Fuller

I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process – an integral function of the universe.

Ignoring your passion is slow suicide. Never ignore what your heart pumps for. Mold your career around your lifestyle not your lifestyle around your career.

A Quote From Deepak Chopra (via purplebuddhaproject)

There is no holy life. There is no war between good and evil. There is no sin and no redemption. None of these things matter to the real you. But they all matter hugely to the false you, the one who believes in the separate self. You have tried to take your separate self, with all its loneliness and anxiety and pride, to the door of enlightenment. But it will never go through, because it is a ghost.

Talks with Sri Ramana Maharshi

Alan Jacobs read Sri Ramana Maharshi. Talk 146.

"The ego is the I thought, the true I is the Self. Realization is already there. The state free from thoughts is the only real state. There is no such action as realization. Is there anyone who is not realizing the self? Does anybody deny his own existence? Speaking of realization implies two selves. The one to realize, the one to be realized. What is not already realized is sought to be realized. Once we admit our own existence how is it that we do not know the Self? Ohhhhh because of the thoughts, the mind. Quite so. It is the mind that stands between and veils our happiness.

How to get rid of the mind.
Is it the mind that wants to kill itself? The mind cannot kill itself. So your business is to find the real nature of the mind. Then you will know there is no mind. When the Self is sought, the mind is nowhere. Abiding in the self one need not worry about the mind.” ~Sri Ramana Maharshi

(via theuniverseworks)

At Ease in the World:


And a true spiritual practitioner is someone who has discovered that it is possible to be at ease in the world for no reason, if only for a few moments at a time, and that such ease is synonymous with transcending the apparent boundaries of the self.

The Good Badlands by Guy Tal.

"These arid places of clay and shale are the backdrop to harsh, desolate, and infinitely beautiful places. Few hardy plants manage to eke a living here and trees only thrive along scant waterways cutting through the parched landscape. On rare years, wildflowers burst into stunning display of color, transforming the desert into a veritable garden for but few precious days. This area is also coveted for off-road motorized travel, in many places despite legal closures to protect the fragile ecosystem. This is a place where humans always struggled, yet always fought for."
