The past is an object of our study, of our meditation, but the way to study it or meditate on it is by remaining anchored in the present moment.

~ Thich Nhat Hanh (excerpt from 'You Are Here; Discovering the Magic of the Present Moment')

“The shift in consciousness happens the moment you say ‘yes’ to what is, because the entire structure of the egoic mind-made self lives on resistance and opposition and on making the now into an enemy.” Eckhart Tolle.

"We can find true refuge within our own hearts and minds—right here, right now, in the midst of our moment-to-moment lives. We find true refuge whenever we recognize the silent space of awareness behind all our busy doing and striving. We find refuge whenever our hearts open with tenderness and love. We find refuge whenever we connect with the innate clarity and intelligence of our true nature." - Tara Brach, True Refuge

“Pain is not wrong. Reacting to pain as wrong initiates the trance of unworthiness. The moment we believe something is wrong, our world shrinks and we lose ourselves in the effort to combat the pain.”

Very thought provoking quote Evelyn!

So, to clarify if I am understanding it right...

If you abandon your fears, compulsions and materialistic dreams, then the simplicity one 'seeks' will just BE filled with love?

My husband and I are working on this everyday!

It's a hard thing to do!

One day at a time!

You can be creative only when there is abandonment--which means, really, there is no sense of compulsion, no fear of not being, of not gaining, of not arriving. Then there is great austerity, simplicity, and with it there is love.

-Jiddu Krishnamurti

True intelligence operates silently. Stillness is where creativity and solutions to problems are found.

Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.
