Time And Space Is In The Mind

“Time is in the mind, space is in the mind. The law of cause and effect is also a way of thinking. In reality all is here and now and all is one. Multiplicity and diversity are in the mind only.” – Nisargadatta Maharaj

Meditation

“Solve all your problems through meditation. Exchange unprofitable religious speculations for actual God-contact. Clear your mind of dogmatic theological debris; let in the fresh, healing waters of direct perception. Attune yourself to the active inner Guidance; the Divine Voice has the answer to every dilemma of life. Though man’s ingenuity for getting himself into trouble appears to be endless, the Infinite Succor is no less resourceful.”

Lahiri Mahasaya

Self-Realization

“Self-realization is the knowing – in body, mind and soul – that we are one with the omnipresence of God; that we do not have to pray that it come to us, that we are not merely near it all times, but that God’s omnipresence is our omnipresence; that we are just as much a part of Him now as we ever will be. All we have to do is improve our knowing.”

Paramahansa Yogananda –

A Sincere and Open Heart

“If you have a sincere and open heart, you naturally feel self-worth and confidence, and there is no need to be fearful of others.”

His Holiness, the Dalai Lama

Be Grateful To Your Enemies

“For a person who cherishes compassion and love, the practice of tolerance is essential, and for that an enemy is indispensable. So we should be grateful to our enemies, for it is they who can best help us develop a tranquil mind.”

His Holiness, the Dalai Lama

The Real Spirit Of Music

“Music is a state of mind which is unbelievable; it is so beautiful. It is an ecstasy that cannot be explained. Often tears come to my eyes; it is a beautiful pain. It is the pain of trying to reach out. You feel that someone is there…. You are trying your best to reach out but you cannot reach. So it is a pain which makes you so sad but that sadness has such beauty in it that it is like a happiness at the same time. That is the real spirit of music.”

Ravi Shankar
