If you fail to accept, accept the failure.

If they ask you what to do

erez's picture



If you take people to be what they think themselves to be, you will only hurt them, as they hurt themselves so grievously all the time.

But if you see them as they are in reality, it will do them enormous good.

If they ask you what to do, what practices to adopt, which way of life to follow, answer: "Do nothing, just be. In being all happens naturally."

— Nisargadatta Maharaj



Love

I find that somehow, by shifting the focus of attention, I become the very thing I look at, and experience the kind of consciousness it has; I become the inner witness of the thing. I call this capacity of entering other focal points of consciousness, love; you may give it any name you like. Love says 'I am everything'. Wisdom says "I am nothing'. Between the two, my life flows. Since at any point of time and space I can be both the subject and the object of experience, I express it by saying that I am both, and neither, and beyond both.

— Nisargadatta Maharaj



Meister Eckhart

We need not destroy any little good in ourselves for the sake of a better, but we should strive to grasp every truth in its highest meaning, for no one good contradicts another.

— Meister Eckhart



Meister Eckhart

erez's picture



A question arises regarding the angels who dwell with us, serve us and protect us, whether their joys are equal to those of the angels in heaven, or whether they are diminished by the fact that they protect and serve us. No, they are certainly not; for the work of the angels is the will of God, and the will of God is the work of the angels; their service to us does not hinder their joy nor their working. If God told an angel to go to a tree and pluck caterpillars off it, the angel would be quite ready to do so, and it would be his happiness, if it were the will of God.

— Meister Eckhart



Silence
