"To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders."
— Lao Tzu
"Always remember to judge everything by your inner feeling of bliss."
"Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it. If we’re frantic, life will be frantic. If we’re peaceful, life will be peaceful. And so our goal in any situation becomes inner peace."
"Spirit has many, many meanings in the dictionary, but to the ancients it meant one thing: conscious life. It meant life, purpose; life containing within itself the archetypes of all living; life that survives every form that exists even in the cosmos itself; but life that is infinitely mindful of the sparrow’s fall. This spirit was therefore an infinite life, a life centring everywhere, its circumference nowhere. This one life—unlimited, unbounded, beyond definition—becomes not only a spirit, a tremendous, all-pervading life power, but within the mysterious depths of this spirit we find the infinite will, the infinite wisdom, and the infinite love."

"Let silence take you to the core of life."
"Acceptance looks like a passive state, but in reality it brings something entirely new into this world. That peace, a subtle energy vibration, is consciousness."
"Doubt everything. Find your own light."
"Learn the alchemy true human beings know. The moment you accept what troubles you’ve been given the door with open."
"Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding."
"Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking. Separate them from the situation, which is always neutral. It is as it is."
"Silence is essential for deep transformation. It allows the practice of conscious breathing to become deep and effective. Like still water that reflects things as they are, the calming silence helps us to see things more clearly; to be in deeper contact with ourselves and those around us."
"The forest makes your heart gentle. You become one with it… No place for greed or anger there."
"Let silence be the art you practice."
"When all mental activity around who you think you are is stopped, there is a crack in the authority of perception, in the structure of the mind. I invite you to enter through that crack. Come in through that opening. When you do, the mind is no longer filled with its latest self-definition. In that moment, there is only silence. And in that silence, it is possible to recognise absolute fulfilment: the truth of who you are."
"Be an artist of consciousness. Your picture of reality is your most important creation. Make it powerfully profoundly beautiful."
