“The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive. To put it more accurately, it is not so much that you use your mind wrongly—you usually don’t use it at all. It uses you.”—Eckhart Tolle (via elige)

“The spiritual life is not about belief or unbelief — it’s all about letting go of ego. It doesn’t matter whether we count beads or sit in meditation or pray or do none of these. It’s about taking self out of center and putting something bigger than self in the center.”—Marilyn Sewell (via elige)
“Metaphor is for most people a device of the poetic imagination and the rhetorical flourish—a matter of extraordinary rather than ordinary language. Moreover, metaphor is typieully viewed as characteristic of language alone, a matter of words rather than thought or action. For this reason, most people think they can get along perfectly well without metaphor. We have found, on the contrary, that metaphor is pervasive in everyday life, not just in language but in thought and action. Our ordinary conceptual system, in terms of which we both think and act, is fundamentally metaphorical in nature.”—George Lakoff, American cognitive linguist and professor of linguistics at the University of California, Berkeley, and Mark Johnson, Metaphors we live by, University Of Chicago Press, 2003.

“There is much unexplored potential in each human being. We are not just flesh and bone or an amalgamation of conditionings. If this were so, our future on this planet would not be very bright. But there is infinitely more to life, and each passionate being who dares to explore beyond the fragmentary and superficial into the mystery of totality helps all humanity perceive what it is to be fully human. Revolution, total revolution, implies experimenting with the impossible. And when an individual takes a step in the direction of the new, the impossible, the whole human race travels through that individual.”—Vimala Thakar (via dewdropsoflove)

“Nobody is superior, nobody is inferior, but nobody is equal either. People are simply unique, incomparable. You are you, I am I. I have to contribute my potential to life; you have to contribute your potential to life. I have to discover my own being; you have to discover your own being.”—Osho (via lucifelle)
“The common error of ordinary religious practice is to mistake the symbol for the reality, to look at the finger pointing the way and then to suck it for comfort rather than follow it.”—Alan Watts: The Wisdom Of Insecurity (via fuckyeahpsychedelics)
