This is a collection of what I call "short stoppers," 
those pithy few words that say it all and simply 
stop you in your tracks. There is no next thought 
needed, nothing to add. Just stop, let it sink in. 
~ Gloria
You may try a hundred things, but love alone will 
release you from yourself. So never flee from 
love—not even from love in an earthly guise—for 
it is a preparation for the supreme Truth.
~ Jami (15th c. Persian Sufi poet)  

See the false as false, and what remains is true. 
What is absent now will appear when what is 
now present disappears. Negation is the only 
answer to finding the ultimate truth – it is as 
simple as that.
~ Ramesh S. Balsekar
via Along The Way

A man does not have to go and find where his 
eyes are in order to see. The heart is there, 
always open to you, if you care to enter it, 
always supporting your movements, although you 
may be unaware of it. It is perhaps more 
correct to say that the Self is the Heart. Really 
the Self is the centre and is everywhere aware 
of itself as the Heart or Self-awareness.
~ Ramana Maharshi

"Enlightenment has nothing to do with bliss, but 
refers to the load you carry — of wrong ideas, 
mistaken identities and fantasies worshipped as 
reality — which gets successively lighter as you 
carry them for what they are. No longer 
carrying this useless imaginary luggage brings 
clarity and weightlessness."
~ Tony (Cartledge)

"Disciples and devotees…what are most of them doing?
Worshipping the teapot instead of drinking the tea!"
~ Wei Wu Wei

Once you know that at the heart of your 
identity, you are simply awareness, you have 
grasped the essence of the teaching.There is no 
one to impress. There is no one to follow. There 
is nowhere to go. To simply be and abide in this 
awareness without hopes, expectations, and 
demands is the fountain of peace and bliss.
~ Harsh K. Luthar
