Make the Now Your Primary Focus

Make the Now the primary focus of your life. Whereas before you dwelt in time and paid brief visits to the Now, have your dwelling place in the Now and pay brief visits to past and future when required to deal with the practical aspects of your life situation.

-Eckhart Tolle

Slow Down

Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world.

-Mother Teresa

Irritation is Your Chance for Growth

When you are constantly hearing offensive words and always
have some irritating matter in mind, only then do you have a
whetstone for character development. If you hear only what pleases
you, and deal only with what thrills you, then you are burying your
life in deadly poison.

All Religion is the Same

All who have actually attained any real religious experience never wrangle over the form in which the different religions are expressed. They know that the soul of all religions is the same and so they have no quarrel with anybody just because he or she does not speak in the same tongue.
-Swami Vivekananda

Do the Opposite

If you want to be whole, let yourself be partial. If you want to become straight, let yourself be crooked. If you want to become full, let yourself become empty. If you want to be reborn, Let yourself die. If you want to be given everything, give everything up.
-Tao Te Ching
