Take no thought of who is right or wrong or who is better than. Be not for or against.
Do not allow negative thoughts to enter your mind for they are the weeds that strange confidence.
Remember no man is really defeated unless he is discouraged.
Effort within the mind further limits the mind, because effort implies struggle towards a goal and when you have a goal, a purpose, end in view, you have placed a limit on the mind.
I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations and you’re not in this world to live up to mine.

Life is an ever-flowing process and somewhere on the path some unpleasant things will pop up – it might leave a scar, but then life is flowing, and like running water, when it stops it grows stale. Go bravely on, my friend, because each experience teaches us a lesson. Keep blasting because life is such that sometimes it is nice and sometimes it is not.

The timeless moment. – The “moment” has no yesterday or tomorrow. It is not the result of thought and therefore has no time.
Flow in the living moment. — We are always in a process of becoming and nothing is fixed. Have no rigid system in you, and you’ll be flexible to change with the ever changing. Open yourself and flow, my friend. Flow in the total openness of the living moment. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Moving, be like water. Still, be like a mirror. Respond like an echo.

“’What is’ is more important than ‘what should be.’ Too many people are looking at ‘what is’ from a position of thinking ‘what should be’.”
“Know the difference between a catastrophe and an inconvenience. — To realize that it’s just an inconvenience, that it is not a catastrophe, but just an unpleasantness, is part of coming into your own, part of waking up. “
“Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable. “
“Truth has no path. Truth is living and, therefore, changing. Awareness is without choice, without demand, without anxiety; in that state of mind, there is perception. To know oneself is to study oneself in action with another person. Awareness has no frontier; it is giving of your whole being, without exclusion.”
In order to taste my cup of water you must first empty your cup.
Water can flow, or it can crash. Be water, my friend.
