If you want to approach the truth, the first thing is you don't assume anything. If you have already made an assumption, you are just trying to find the confirmation for your assumption, that is not seeking truth
Why are we wasting our time trying to confirm our assumptions? We must enhance our perception, only by perceiving we know, there is no other way.
If you keep pushing the line between sanity & insanity, if you go mad & come back, if you go mad & you come back, one day you are not able to come back, that's all
It's unfortunate that injustice, subjugation and many levels of cruelty generates wonderful men. We have to find a way to generate such men when there is no strife, when there is no subjugation, when there is no injustice.
If you're in communion with truth, your associations will be just associations, not attachments. You will know involvement in life, but you will not know entanglement in your life, not because it's right or wrong, with brakes on if you try to go somewhere, you will burn yourself up and then you think life is a miserable thing.
If you love somebody it's a fickle happening because no human being will happen a hundred percent the way you want them. Every human being on this planet is going to disappoint you believe me not because they'll do something wrong because nobody can fulfill the unrealistic expectation you have of them.

If you function with your humanity, not fixing your actions but only looking for a consequence, that is best for everybody, whatever is needed you will do and that's how it should be
You give your problems too many names because you like to decorate your problems. If you decorate your problems you may not want to get rid of them.
Everything happened, but at the end of the day you have a long face; purpose is defeated, isn't it? The purpose of doing all that is already been defeated. Isn't it so? Because you did not enjoy it, it does not fulfill you, what is the point?
It is difficult to love someone who is next to you right now, it is easy to love someone who is dead or who is in heaven. Because if you have to love one, you have to give up something that is you, to accommodate another, otherwise it will not happen.
The frills of life have become larger than life itself. Life is entirely missed; if you touch life within you, then it's an explosion of energy
If you want to know the value of life just know that it's a brief happening.
Human beings have physical, psychological, emotional, economic, social and various other kinds of needs. To fulfill these things when you say “I love you”, instead of making these things ugly to bring some beauty to this transaction, we quote it with a certain amount of sweetness of emotion which we call as love affair
Marriage is about bringing sanctity to the simple basic needs that every human being has. There are physical, psychological, economic, emotional, social.. needs. To fulfill all these we set up an institution called marriage where all these can be conducted in a sensible manner, if we did it on the street like every other creature it would turn ugly for us
If I say something which is not in your present level of experience, what are the option you have? You can believe it or you can disbelieve it. If you believe what I say, have you gotten any closer to reality? Or if you disbelieve what I say, have you gotten any closer to reality?
For most people life means their job, life means the new house, the car that they bought, their wife, their husband, their children. No! Life is what's throbbing within, not even your body, not your mind, not your thought, not your emotion. What is right now throbbing within you is life. Only because this is ON everything else seems to be meaningful
Nothing wonderful is ever going to happen unless we actively make it happen
Children are not your property; they do not belong to you. Just see how to enjoy, nurture, and support them.
Thought and emotion are not separate entities. The way you think is the way you feel

Too many human beings are crippled either with fear or with guilt. This crippling of Humanity is passing off as Religion
When you say positive thinking, in a way you are trying to escape reality. You only want to look at one side of life while missing out the other. You may ignore the other, but the other will not ignore you.
Do not look up to anything, nor look down on anything. Then you will see creation just the way it is

The quality of your life is not determined by the clothes you wear, the educational qualifications you carry, the family background you come from or the bank balances you hold. Rather, the quality of your life depends upon how peaceful and joyous you are within yourself
You don't have to do anything to be peaceful if you don't mess yourself, you are peaceful, how else to be?
If you are joyful and you have created joy for people around you, then you do not have to go to heaven because you are already there
Only somebody who is blatantly lost in his moralistic nonsense believes he is pure-minded. Anybody who is sincere, looking at himself, he knows a part of him is utter filth. Nobody can avoid it.
The world is hungry not because there is no food. There is more food than the 7.2 billion people on the planet can eat. It is just that those who need it do not get it, because one way or the other, those who have the power and the means have not cared enough to do something about it
There is sufficient unpleasantness in the world around us. You don't have to create unpleasantness within yourself
When we are unable to bring ourselves to some sense of peace, every little issue gets blown out of proportion. For every little thing, we end up fighting with each other.
When human beings are peaceful and joyful within themselves, they will do just what is needed, nothing more, nothing less.
We need to create a society where our values are more spread out to all aspects of life. Music, art, love, care, all these things are as important as economics.
Human beings are capable of suffering just about anything. If there is some physical reason, at least they have a good excuse. Otherwise, they will simply suffer for nothing.
Unfortunately, you are not sending your children to school because you want them to learn, but because you want them to earn.
For most parents it is not about education; it is about 1st rank. They want their children to sit on top of every other child's head. They are not interested in learning, they are not interested in education, they are not interested in a career, they are not interested in anything. Their whole effort in their life is how to sit on top of the pile
Intelligence twisted out against our own well-being is no intelligence.
If you don't have a sense of involvement, you will always try to get the best deal out of somebody. That means you must meet the dumbest people in the world. Intelligent people will never bite your dumb deals.
If you were perfectly sane, you would not need entertainment. You need entertainment just to cover your madness. If we take away your entertainment, you will go crazy. Man needs entertainment simply to hide his madness. If he was perfectly sane, he would not need entertainment. He could just sit and watch the bamboo grow.
Unfortunately, for most people, fear, anger, hatred are the most intense situations in their lives. Their love is never so intense, their peace is never so intense, their joy is never so intense, but their negativities are intense.

Just because everybody is like you, that doesn't make it the right thing...
'There Are No Adults' Everyone's making it up as they go along. Figure it out yourself, and do it
The reality is life is a single-player game. You're born alone. You're going to die alone. All of your interpretations are alone. All your memories are alone. You're gone in three generations and nobody cares. Before you showed up, nobody cared.
Anything in your pockets that's not a smartphone will be replaced by the smartphone.

If it hurts to hear it, look for the truth in it. If it comforts to hear it, look for the lie in it.
If you want the truth, take no one else's word for it. Accept only science, reason, and direct experience. Start on solid ground. Mind each step.
Individuals search for truth, groups search for consensus.
There is but one religion of God, one Truth underlying the different names of religion. That universal state of consciousness is very hard to attain unless one has Self-realization, the knowing that we are souls and that all souls are a part of the One God
