We must eradicate from the soul
all fear and terror of what
comes towards man
out of the future.
We must acquire serenity
in all feelings and sensations
about the future.
We must look forward
with absolute equanimity
to everything that may come.
And we must think only that
whatever comes is given to us
by a world-directive
full of wisdom.
It is part of what we
must learn in this age,
namely, to live out of pure
trust, without any security
Trust in the ever present
help of the spiritual world.
Truly, nothing else will do
if our courage is not to fail us.
And let us seek the awakening
from within ourselves,
and every evening.
Rudolf Steiner (1861)
I want to meet you to see if, at the end of this meeting, we leave as two. Mooji (1954)
There is only one religion, though there are a hundred versions of it. George Bernard Shaw (1856)
The beauty of the world is Christ's tender smile for us, coming through matter. Simone Weil (1909)
Wisdom comes by disillusionment.
I know but one freedom and that is the freedom of the mind. Antoine De Saint-Exupery (1900)
I am blind and do not see the things of this world; but when the light comes from above, it enlightens my heart and I can see, for the Eye of my heart sees everything. Black Elk, Oglala Sioux
It is wonderful, Lord! It is wonderful, Lord! It is as if, Lord, one might set upright that which had been upturned, or might reveal what was hidden, or might point out the path to one who had gone astray, or might bring an oil lamp into the darkness so that those with eyes might see material shapes. Buddhism (500 B.C.E.)
God is the Light of the heavens and the earth. Muhammed (570)
Him the sun does not illumine, nor the moon, nor the stars, nor the lightning - nor, verily fires kindled upon the earth. He is the one light that gives light to all. He shines; everything shines. Hinduism
Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." New Testament
Your work is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Old Testament
It is something within us that doesn't let us sleep,
that doesn't let us rest,
that won't stop pounding
...because in this marathon of Hope,
there are always others to relieve us
who carry the strength
to reach the finish line
which lies beyond death.
Join us in this vigil
and you will know what it is to dream!
Then you will know how marvelous it is
to live threatened with Resurrection!
To dream awake
to keep watch asleep,
to live while dying,
and to know ourselves already resurrected.
Julia Esquivel (1930)
If you made a list of everything you own, everything you think of as you, everything you prefer, that list would be the distance between you and the living truth. Stephen Levine (1937)
Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. Carl Jung (1875)
Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves. Carl Jung (1875)
In this high place
it is as simple as this,
Leave everything you know behind.
Step toward the cold surface,
say the old prayer of rough love
and open both arms.
Those who come with empty hands
will stare into the lake astonished,
there, in the cold light
reflecting pure snow,
the true shape of your own face.
The force of necessity is irresistible. Aeschylus (525 B.C.E.)
A day, an hour, of virtuous liberty
Is worth a whole eternity in bondage.
Joseph Addison (1672)
Progress is the law of life; man is not man as yet. Robert Browning (1812)
People stop being children when they start laughing at their ignorance. Kyaciss Pfiell
Can't stop the thoughts arising and disappearing in your mind,
True awareness shining boundlessly, you must focus on the one that doesn't move,
To realize there are neither forms nor names, nothing to pursue,
Sword of Wisdom has been used, must hurry to hone it.
Lin Chi (810)
Whatever is not yours, abandon it. When you have abandoned it, that will lead to your welfare and happiness for a long time.
What is it that is not yours? Material form is not yours. Abandon it. When you have abandoned it, that will lead to your welfare and happiness for a long time.
Buddhism (500 B.C.E.)
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible. Dalai Lama (1935)
Right here, right now, in this moment, you don't have to 'figure out' the rest of your life, no matter what anyone says. In this moment, you don't need all the answers. They will come, in time, or not, or perhaps the unncecessary questions will fall away. . . . And so, instead of trying to 'fix' our lives, instead of trying to neatly resolve the unresolveable and quickly complete the epic story of a fictitious 'me,' we simply relax into utter not knowing, unravelling in the warm embrace of mystery, sinking deeply into the moment, savouring it fully, in all its uniqueness and wonder. Jeff Foster

"If you persist in trying to attain what is never attained (It is Tao's Gift!), If you persist in making effort to obtain what effort cannot get, If you persist in reasoning about what cannot be understood, You will be destroyed by the very thing you seek. To know when to stop, To know when you can get no further by your own action, This is the right beginning! "- Lao Tse
