“ To study the Way is to study the self.
To study the self is to forget the self.
To forget the self is to be enlightened by all things.
To be enlightened by all things is to remove the barriers between one’s self and others.
“ When an inner situation is not made conscious it appears outside as fate.
“ However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.
— Stanley Kubrick (via dissipates)
“ If there is common ground among the world’s religions, it is to be found in mysticism. Adventurers of the spirit, the mystics have dared to push beyond the boundaries of orthodox tradition to pursue a common goal: the direct experience of God. Mystics long to see God, to know God, to be one with God - not in the here-after, but in the here and now. And they teach that while you may seek him in temple or mosque or church, you must ultimately find him in your own heart.
— Kabbalah: Key to Your Inner Power by Elizabeth Clare Prophet (via ethereal-nomad)
“ Abundance of knowledge does not teach men to be wise.
