Most people confuse the Now with what happens in the Now, but that’s not what it is. The Now is deeper than what happens in it. It is the space in which it happens. So do not confuse the content of this moment with the Now. The Now is deeper than any content that arises.
Eckhart Tolle (via in-a-wonderland-they-lie)
One of the first signs of the beginning of understanding is the wish to die.
Franz Kafka, Blue Octavo Notebooks (via decembrist)
Meditation is nothing but withdrawing all the barriers; thoughts, emotions, sentiments everything that builds a wall between you and existence. The moment they drop, you suddenly find yourself in tune with the whole; not only in tune, you really find you are the whole.
Osho (via yogachocolatelove)
The love that you search for everywhere
is already present within you.
It may be evoked by any number of people or events.
But finally, you must realize you are this love.
The source of all love is within you.
Gangaji (via sun-hawk)
