OTHERS QUOTES

~Wisdom of the Heart~


“To have what you seek you have to go beyond knowing and become it. I was no longer needing to be special, because I was no longer so caught up in my separateness that had to keep proving I was something. I was part of the universe, like a tree is, like grass is, or like water is.


The only rule I live by is to be true to my own heart, to my own inner voice. My Guru is within my heart. I don’t have a set of rules to live by... What I demand of the spiritual paths I practice is that they be real for me and feel right in my heart and that they be living Spirit.


Our interactions with one another reflect a dance between love and fear. The spiritual journey is not about acquiring something outside yourself. Rather, you are penetrating the layers and veils to return to the deepest truth of your own being.


We're quiet. We aren't dancing to the culture's drum. And we are silent inside. That silence is there so that we can hear our intuitive wisdom. This culture sees life as collecting experiences. But [awakening] is an emptying out and beginning to experience the moment, what's happening right now...


It's also the witness... You stand outside the action. Shifting perspective takes the suffering away... You are shifting the "I." When you get into "I" as the witness, you can experience your life as a movie. Then there is no more suffering. Because the soul doesn't suffer.


At the ego level, the sensory level, there is pain. But you aren't fighting it anymore, and you're not afraid of it, and that releases you from its grip..."


~Ram Dass
