15 Minutes, baby.
Is how long I meditated for today. I wasn’t planning on meditating for that length of time; Originally, I planned to meditate for five minutes. However, my mind was so chaotic, then when it finally started to calm down the time was almost up. So I think I’m going to start meditating for ten minutes now.
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.
Smile, breathe and go slowly.
Thich Nhat Hanh
What kind of living can be out of fear? Once the armor is dropped you can live out of love, you can live in a mature way. The fully matured man has no fear, no defense; he is psychologically completely open and vulnerable.
If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.
In the East we call this state meditation: no belief, no thought, no desire, no prejudice, no conditioning — in fact, no mind at all. A state of no-mind is meditation. When you can look without any mind interfering, distorting, interpreting, then you see the truth. The truth is already all around; just you have to put your mind aside.
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
The real seeker of truth never seeks truth. On the contrary, he tries to clean himself of all that is untrue, inauthentic, insincere - and when his heart is ready, purified, the guest comes. You cannot find the guest, you cannot go after him. He comes to you; you just have to be prepared. You have to be in a right attitude.
Your depression comes from your fighting. Stop fighting it. What you need to understand is that happiness isn’t acquired. You can’t force happiness just like you can’t force sleep. You have to relax into it. Instead, allow yourself to be sad. It is okay to feel sad. But don’t Identify with the sadness. In other words, YOU are not the sadness. YOU are something that is experiencing sadness. Don’t feed into and encourage the sadness but just watch it. Let it run its course. Without the fuel of your thoughts, your emotions will not be able to sustain themselves for long. The nature of truth is that all things change. One emotion always gives birth to another. So don’t aim for happiness. Then the very struggle for happiness becomes your torture because every moment you spend looking for happiness is a moment in which you are not happy. Instead, find peace. Happiness comes out of peace, always. How can one not be happy when at peace? When you are willing to accept any moment, and work with it, then you will begin to know peace. Take heart. You are more than this and you can find it in you. Right this very moment. Stop struggling. Float and accommodate. When you’re sad, be sad. When you’re happy, be happy. Then you will start to move beyond both. Namaste.
