The eternal present is the space within which your whole life unfolds, the one factor that remains constant. Life is now. There is only this now. It does not come from anywhere, it is not going anywhere. Through ‘moving’, it is always still. When we try to catch it, it seems to run away, and yet it is always here.
If you can say yes with your total heart, you are in celebration. If you can say yes to Existence, you have arrived.
The whole play of Existence is so absurd and beautiful that laughter can be the only response to it. Only laughter can be the real attitude, gratitude.
The beauty you seek lies within the innermost feeling of “I Am.” Do not be fooled by seeking for certainty, beauty, validation and strength in the outer world, for there is no outer world. Once you realize the I Am is all there is, you will also realize that the source of everything is always here and now and it is synonymous with ‘you.’ – Bentinho Massaro
I used to be a guy who was experiencing the world and now I feel like the world and the universe experiencing a guy, so there’s kind of been a shift.
If the only prayer you say in your whole life is “Thank you”, that would suffice. Becoming friendly with the present moment is the only spiritual practice you really need.
Each day brings its own problems, its own challenges and each moment brings its own questions. And if you have ready-made answers in your head you will not be able even to listen to the question. You will be so full of your answer, you will be incapable of listening. You will not be available. – Osho
The secret to living well and longer is: eat half, walk double, laugh triple, and love without measure.
All forms of life and being are simply variations on a single theme: we are all in fact one being doing the same things in as many different ways as possible. – Alan Watts in “The Joyous Cosmology”
In mediocrity, there is comfort, but no joy. In going beyond your limits, there is joy, but maybe no comfort. You have to choose. – Sadhguru
