The separate self is an illusory entity: a collage of ideas, memories, images, fears, hopes, sensations and feelings all strung together by thought, creating an apparently solid, permanent self. But when we look inside for this self, we never find it. We find only the true and only self of ever-present, unlimited awareness; it finds itself.
Peace and happiness are the very nature of our being, and we share our being with everyone and everything.
Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray. [[Rumi]]
The very softest thing of all can ride like a galloping horse through the hardest of things. Like water, like water penetrating rock. And so the invisible enters in. That is why I know it is wise to act by doing nothing. And how few, how very few understand this! [[Lao-tzu]]
