Unease, tension, anxiety, stress, worry - all forms of fear - are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of non-forgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.
Love is a state of Being. Your love is not outside; it is deep within you. You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you.
Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is.
Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them
To the ego, the present moment hardly exists. Only past and future are considered important. This total reversal of the truth accounts for the fact that in the ego made the mind is so dysfunctional. It is always concerned with keeping the past alive, because without it - who are you?
Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally. If you want to take responsibility for your life, you must choose one of those three options, and you m
So the single most vital step on your journey toward enlightenment is this: learn to disidentify from your mind. Every time you create a gap in the stream of mind, the light of your consciousness grows stronger. One day you may catch yourself smiling at the voice in your head, as you would smile at
Meet everyone and everything through stillness rather than mental noise.
What a liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that.
Why does the mind habitually deny or resist the Now? Because it cannot function and remain in control without time, which is past and future, so it perceives the timeless Now as threatening. Time and mind are in fact inseparable.
To end the misery that has afflicted the human condition for thousands of years, you have to start with yourself and take responsibility for you inner state at any given moment. That means now.
As soon as you honor the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out of present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love - even the most simple action.
Anything that you resent and strongly react to in another is also in you.
Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it's no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you learn nothing.
Just watching an animal closely can take you out of your mind and bring you into the present moment, which is where the animal lives all the time.
Fulfill me, make me happy, make me feel safe, tell me who I am. The world cannot give you those things, and when you no longer have such expectations, all self created suffering comes to an end
The moment you realize you are not present, you are present. Whenever you are able to observe your mind, you are no longer trapped in it. Another factor has come in, something that is not of the mind: the witnessing presence.
Let go of the past every moment. You don't need it. Only refer to it when it is absolutely relevant to the present. Feel the power of this moment and the fullness of being. Feel your presence.

When you no longer perceive the world as hostile, there is no more fear, and when there is no more fear, you think, speak and act differently.
Not to be able to stop thinking is a dreadful affliction, but we don't realize this because almost everyone is suffering from it, so it is considered normal. This incessant mental noise prevents you from finding that realm of inner stillness that is inseparable from Being.
The modalities of awakened doing are acceptance, enjoyment, and enthusiasm. You need to be vigilant to make sure that one of then operates whenever you are engaged in doing anything at all - from the most simple task to the most complex.
You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe
