Strengthen the real nature, build up yourselves, the effulgent, the resplendent, the ever pure, call that up in every one whom you see. I wish that everyone of us had come to such a state that even when we see the vilest of human beings we can see the God within, and instead of condemning, say, ‘Rise, thou effulgent One, rise thou who art always pure, rise thou birthless and deathless, rise almighty, and manifest your nature.’…This is the highest prayer that the Advaita teaches. This is the one prayer: Remembering our nature.
Why does one go out to look for a God?…It is your own heart beating, and you did not know, you were mistaking it for something external. The One, nearest of the near, my own self, the reality of my own life, my body and my soul. I Am Thee and Thou art me. That is your own nature. Assert it, manifest it. Not to become pure, you are pure already. You are not to be perfect, you are that already. Every good thought which you think or act upon is simply tearing the veil, as it were, and the purity, the Infinity, the God behind, manifests itself…the eternal Subject of everything, the eternal Witness in this universe, your own Self… ~ Vivekananda
In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself… ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
I wish neither to possess nor to be possessed. I no longer covet ‘paradise’. More important, I no longer fear ‘hell’. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, but I did not observe it, until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, consuming myself… ~ Bruce Lee
Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from… ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Your mind is powerful. When you filter it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change… ~ Buddha
Your world is your consciousness objectified. Waste no time trying to change the outside; change the within; and the without will take care of itself. When the truth of this statement dawns upon you, you will know that you have found the lost key to every door.
I AM (your consciousness) is the magical lost word which was made flesh in the likeness of that which you are conscious of being… ~ Neville Goddard
Listen to yourself. If your body is telling you to avoid certain foods and eat more fruits and veggies, do it. If your gut feeling is telling you to distance yourself from certain people and get closer to those who have a positive aura to them, do it. If your heart is telling you to travel, quit the job, start this project, spend more time in nature, take a break, read this book, be with that person, go for it. Your higher self knows what’s best for you, so don’t ignore the message.
