Saturday Evening Random

“The most common ego identifications have to do with possessions, the work you do, social status and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, person and family history, belief systems, and often also political, nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications. None of these [are] you.”
--
“To the ego, the present moment hardly exists.  Only past and future are considered important.  This total reversal of the truth accounts for the fact that in the ego mode the mind is so dysfunctional.  It is always concerned with keeping the past alive, because without it - who are you?”


--Eckhart Tolle

Friday Evening Random

“I cannot tell if what the world considers ‘happiness’ is happiness or not.  All I know is that when I consider the way they go about attaining it, I see them carried away headlong, grim and obsessed, in the general onrush of the human herd, unable to stop themselves or to change their direction.  All the while they claim to be just on the point of attaining happiness.”

--Chuang Tzu

“‎Uncertainty is the only certainty there is, and knowing how to live with insecurity is the only security.”

Thrusday Evening Ponderables

“Whenever the energy of anger comes up, we often want to express it to punish the person whom we believe to be the source of our suffering.  This is the habit energy in us.  When we suffer, we always blame the other person for having made us suffer.  We do not realize that anger is, first of all, our business.  We are primarily responsible for our anger, but we believe very naively that if we can say something or do something to punish the other person, we will suffer less.  This kind of belief should be uprooted.  Because whatever you do or say in a state of anger will only cause more damage in the relationship.  Instead, we should try not to do anything or say anything when we are angry.”

--Thich Nhat Hanh

“Consider it: every person you have ever met, every person will suffer the loss of his friends and family.  All are going to lose everything they love in this world.  Why would one want to be anything but kind to them in the meantime?”

--Sam Harris

Sunday Evening Ponderable

“Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important.  They don’t mean to do harm -- but the harm does not interest them.  Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves.”

--T.S. Eliot

Sunday Afternoon Quotes

“The only thing I know is this: I am full of wounds and still standing on my feet.”

--Thich Nhat Hanh

“Fill your bowl to the brim an it will spill.  Keep sharpening your knife and it will blunt.  Chase after money and security and your heart will never unclench.  Care about people’s approval and you will be their prisoner.”
