Quote

Take care of yourself.
Let the world take care of itself.
See your Self.
If you are the body there is the gross world also.
If you are the spirit all is spirit alone.

— Sri Ramana Maharshi – Be As You Are – The Teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi

Take care of yourself

Quote

This is love: to fly toward a secret sky,
to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment.

First, to let go of life.
In the end, to take a step without feet;
to regard this world as invisible,
and to disregard what appears to be the self.

Heart, I said, what a gift it has been
to enter this circle of lovers,
to see beyond seeing itself,
to reach and feel within the breast.

— Jalalud’din Rumi – The Divani Shamsi Tabriz, XIII

This is Love

Quote

Please listen quietly: we know that thought creates fear. One of the functions of thought is to be occupied, to be thinking about something all the time. Like a housewife who thinks about the food, the children, the washing up – that is all her occupation; remove that occupation, and she will be lost, she will feel totally uncomfortable, lonely, miserable. Or take away the God from the man who worships God, who is occupied with God; he will be totally lost. So thought must be occupied with something or the other, either about itself or about politics, or about how to bring about a different world, a different ideology and so on; the mind must be occupied. And most of us want to be occupied; otherwise we shall feel lost, otherwise we do not know what to do, we will be lonely, we will be confronted with what we actually are. You understand? So, you are occupied, thought is occupied – which prevents you from looking at yourself, at what you actually are.
