Yes, I read something by Nietzsche the other day that was quite thought provoking. It surprised me. I have never "read" him. Nor Kafka. But heard an interesting quote from him as well.

I need to broaden my reading I think. Must order something in the library.

“I found that those friends of mine who welcomed the unseen into the realm of their seen offered immediate understanding. Some are Christians, some are not. Most are artists of some kind or other; artistry can extend to a way of being, of living lovingly in this world. Many seem to have almost a spiritual affinity for the unmarked trail, armed only with True North.

I''m working on becoming free of expectations right now. Of myself and others.

Life sure is more serene when I am able to do this. Thinking of myself as being blessed to live here, rather than owning it seems to be helpful.... when I remember. emoticon

Happy to have found this today. I sometimes find that others judge what my words and have not understood what I mean. I must remember to remind myself of this when I judge the words of others.

Kathy, hello there, happy to see you. Jump right on in, the water's fine. I love discovering other people's philosophy on life. emoticon

“So from now on, screw "perfect." Forget for a while about what kind of person you want to be, and just be the best version of the person you are. Figure out which of your classmates you genuinely like (not who you want to like you), and get to know them by telling your own stories and listening to theirs. Hang out with the people you think are cool, not the people you'd like to be considered cool by. Do things because they interest you, not because they make you look interesting... and then, take stock in a month and see whether you're not happier, healthier, and working on some actual friendships with other imperfect-but-lovely humans.”

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”

― Dr. Seuss

Amen, wish dr seuss was around when I was young.

In the dictionary we used way back when it is recounted that 'conformity was defined as sanity.'

How sad is that. No wonder I thought I was mad. Never have been a conformist.

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”

― Lao Tzu

Have to say this is so true as I look at my life. Letting things flow is what I am working on.
I can see the sense in it now - would be wonderful to start life with this understanding.

Perhaps this is like the kindergarten and the next chapter we will carry these lessons with us.

Well your thoughts and post this morning took me on a lovely journey, which turned out to be quite lengthy. I found many quotes I liked but were not quite what I was looking for.

This one seemed to sum up my thoughts especially of late.

“Beliefs are the eyelids of the mind.”
― David Zindell, The Broken God

We all seem to have something within us which makes us follow in the way we are led.
It is strange looking back over my life. I would not have chosen any of it from the way I was born up until this very day. But none the less it is my life and I have enjoyed much of it.
Since letting go of all the things I thought I knew to be true I am discovering a whole world of not knowing anything very much about anything, so life has become a journey of daily discovery. I have really no idea what may follow. I can believe what others say, but how do they know and there is so much controversy about it. It seems perhaps I have stopped believing and am now living by experience. I have no goal in the future that I want to reach.
I just want to be here and now. This is the happiest I have ever been in my life. Who knows what the next life, if there is one, will be like. If there is the Garden of Eden will suit me just fine. But how exciting it is not to know what is going to happen in the very next minute of Now and to be present here to watch it unfold.

Love Steinbeck - makes one think - is IT all in our heads?

I love that quote Kali. Of course we are. What other kind of journey is there really.
Only the spiritual has any hope of not ending in the final curtain. :)

“Just like heaven. Ever’body wants a little piece of lan’. I read plenty of books out here. Nobody never gets to heaven, and nobody gets no land. It’s just in their head. They’re all the time talkin’ about it, but it’s jus’ in their head.”

Hi there Evie. Loving the quote.

Found this today and it is where my life is right now. I am letting go of some things that take my time away from what is meaningful. Letting go of the inessential is leaving me space for what I love.

I know, it is a beautiful phrase - am so working on spending more time there - mindfulness is easier when I am alone - when with others I seem to lose it so quickly and this "other person" pops out. emoticon
The dalai lama is my inspiration in this regard. He is always the same. So gentle, so kind, so quiet, so peaceful, so present. emoticon

“You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don't know it, all of that doesn't even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It's not like you have forever, so don't waste any of your seconds, don't throw even one of your moments away.”

― C. JoyBell C.

"Inhabit your moments" emoticon How wonderful is that?!?

O YES, INDEEDY. (oops caps not intended. :)

“Live today. Not yesterday. Not tomorrow. Just today. Inhabit your moments. Don’t rent them out to tomorrow. Do you know what you’re doing when you spend a moment wondering how things are going to turn out?

You’re cheating yourself out of today. Today is calling to you, trying to get your attention, but you’re stuck on tomorrow, and today trickles away like water down a drain. You wake up the next morning and that today you wasted is gone forever. It’s now yesterday. Some of those moments may have had wonderful things in store for you , but now you’ll never know.”

Oh Kali, you do make me smile. You are so very an action person.

"Do not believe anything
because it is said by an authority,
or if it is said to come from angels,
or from gods,
or from an inspired source.

Believe it only if you have explored it
in your own heart
and mind and body
and found it to be true.

Work out your own path,
through diligence."

Gautama Buddha

It is good to feel the sense of inner resonance with the quotes that seem to already be a part of our own individual journey. Thank you. :)

Here's to being ourselves!

"A nice definition of an awakened person: a person who no longer marches to the drums of society, a person who dances to the tune of the music that springs up from within."

Of course it is so true. Why do we try to wake others up. When we are ready we unfold like flowers. To open too soon, or worse be forced to open early does not produce good strong growth in the plant.

"To be nobody but yourself in a world that's doing its best to make you somebody else, is to fight the hardest battle you are ever going to fight. Never stop fighting."

E. E. Cummings

James (my son) enjoys Anthony de Mello.

Here's to transparency and reminding me I too love the teachings of great men. Who knows, perhaps the Holy Spirit guided them?

"Waking up is unpleasant, you know. You are nice and comfortable in bed. It is irritating to be woken up. That’s the reason the wise guru will not attempt to wake people up. I hope I’m going to be wise here and make no attempt whatsoever to wake you up if you are asleep. It is really none of my business, even though I say to you at times, "Wake up!" My business is to do my thing, to dance my dance. If you profit from it fine; if you don’t, too bad! As the Arabs say, "The nature of rain is the same, but it makes thorns grow in the marshes and flowers in the gardens"."

- Anthony De Mello

I so love Rumi. I sometimes think, if there was no one else his words would carry it all.
I kind of feel guilty typing that - being brought up a Christian. But decided to leave it. God knows what I think, no point in censoring for other people. emoticon

Would you guess I am practicing transparency right now. It amazes me what goes through my head at times. But sure does make me feel part of the human race, especially those I would tend to judge. emoticon

This gives me a great deal of peace.

Especially for those of us who were on another planet when patience was handed out.

“Patience is not sitting and waiting, it is foreseeing. It is looking at the thorn and seeing the rose, looking at the night and seeing the day. Lovers are patient and know that the moon needs time to become full.”

― Rumi

PS - perfect for me today as I need to foresee the sun and longer days.

Aint it just the truth though. :) Thank you.

Still grinning. So we can learn to "Live and Let Live" perhaps and stop try to convince everyone else we are right . Sounds like that lunatic has learned how to deal compassionately with all of us who still try to argue our own point of view. I still tend to interrupt rather than listen patiently. I see I have a lot to learn. emoticon

Sad to say Kali, that is where I spent most of my life. But in my case I did not know how to love either. I had not learnt it when my children were small. We can only give what we have to give. "Forgive and forgiven" as Tarah Brach puts it. I love those words. So simple and yet the whole Bible really.

Still an old favourite of mine. emoticon

“Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love – for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment is it perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you from misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labours and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.”

― Max Ehrmann, Desiderata: A Poem for a Way of Life

Oh Kali. Yes, I love Rumi. That is so beautiful. All in all always and eternal.
These masters have learned so much in their lifetimes. Most of which we seemed to have lost over the last few centuries - the dark ages. Now the light seems to be returning. The Catholic knowledge at base. Omnipresent and all the other omnis that go with it.
If the understanding of this were to really sink deep into us it would change every single thing I think and say and do. A work in progress.

Thank you for sharing Rumi. :)

Wonderful...

I'm so excited I found the quote that helps me understand duality!

"I have put duality away, I have seen the two worlds are one; One I seek, One I know, One I see, One I call. He is the first, He is the last, He is the outward, he is the inward."

- Rumi

“Be present in all things and thankful for all things” Maya Angelou

“If you laugh you change; and when you change the world changes.” Shilpa Shah

“Joy is prayer. Joy is strength. Joy is love. Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. She gives most who gives with Joy.”
Mother Teresa (1910-1997); Founder Of The Missionaries Of Charity

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience" Teihard deChardin

Ah... I may be beginning to understand.

The Chopra Energy of Attraction meditations may also be leading me to 'practice what I preach'

Kali Your quote gives me goosies. :)

Beyond duality - all things are leading me here currently. This is the field I have my eyes set on discovering and finding a way of being that matches it in practice.

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”

― Rumi

Ah...

“Even
After
All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,

"You owe me."

Look
What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.”

"Moving beyond duality is pure light.
We are like a prism, each reflecting off the world from a different point of view,
a seemingly separate color which is different from oneself.
There would be no color or difference except for the light and the prism
We would not exist without the light, but we think we are the color we see in the prism
We are the light that does not recognize itself.
The rainbow in the prism is nothing but pure reflected light".
