The foolish reject what they see, 
Not what they think; 
The wise reject what they think, 
Not what they see. 
Observe things as they are
And don't pay attention to other people.

Life simply is. 
It follows its course. 
Give yourself to the moment.
 Let life reveal itself to you.

Anytime you have a negative feeling toward anyone, you’re living in an illusion. There’s something seriously wrong with you. You’re not seeing reality. Something inside of you has to change. But what do we generally do when we have a negative feeling? “He is to blame, she is to blame. She’s got to change.” No! The world’s all right. The one who has to change is you.

Anthony De Mello

Are you living your truth or defending it?

Meditation has made me happy, loving, and peaceful - but not every single moment of the day. I still have good times and bad, joy and sorrow. Now I can accept setbacks more easily, with less sense of disappointment and personal failure, because meditation has taught me how to cope with the profound truth that everything changes all the time.

There is in all visible things an invisible fecundity,
a dimmed light, a meek namelessness, a hidden wholeness.
This mysterious unity and integrity is wisdom, the mother
of us all, "natura naturans." 
There is in all things an inexhaustible sweetness and purity,
a silence that is a fountain of action and joy. 
It rises up in wordless gentleness,and flows out to me from
the unseen roots of all created being.
