The Ego, however, is not who you really are. The ego is your self-image; it is your social mask; it is the role you are playing. Your social mask thrives on approval. It wants control, and it is sustained by power, because it lives in fear.
Where does a thought go when it’s forgotten?
Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.
People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.
The greater part of human pain is unnecessary. It is self-created as long as the unobserved mind runs your life.
Whatever happens, happens to you, by you, through you; you are the creator, enjoyer, and destroyer of all that you perceive.
The heart is extremely fertile soil. Whatever is planted there, good or bad, will take root and grow.
Not judging yourself or allowing others to judge you, not blaming yourself, getting to know and accepting yourself, forgiving yourself, loving yourself, helping yourself overcome insecurities, respecting yourself and protecting yourself.
Are not the mountains, waves, and skies, a part of me and of my soul, as I of them?
Nature has planted in our minds an insatiable longing to see the truth.
Words can be twisted into any shape. Promises can be made to lull the heart and seduce the soul. In the final analysis, words mean nothing. They are labels we give things in an effort to wrap our puny little brains around their underlying natures, when ninety-nine percent of the time, the totality of reality is an entirely different beast. The wisest man is the silent one. Examine his actions. Judge him by them.
Whatever our struggles and triumphs, however we may suffer them, all too soon they bleed into a wash, just like watery ink on paper.
What is more deadly?
A gun of a thought?
A gun gives you the opportunity
But the thought pulls the trigger
What you do today is important, because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.
In this world, hate has never yet dispelled hate. Only love dispels hate. This is the law, ancient and inexhaustible.
