Wisdom

 

Now you are in your inner space, the place of the Spirit Lake. This is your first conscious time here. Each of us has this inner space, but during the lives of most people, it becomes smaller and smaller. As we go through life, the world around us tries to fill up and kill this inner space, your Spirit Lake. Many people lose it entirely. Their space is occupied by legions of foreign soldiers, and it dies. Now you have experienced this space within yourself. Now you know it. You will no longer be afraid of the world around you. Your space will never be filled up with anything but yourself, because now that you have experienced it, you recognize its feeling and its pulse. You will continue to explore it. Later you will also learn that there is an important Inner Being who lives there. You will need to meet and understand this Spirit Being. It will help you do this when you are ready. -  from the book Entering the circle

Many people are unaware that our troubles and problems are the direct functions of the universal wisdom that governs the oneness in everything. Fighting against this wisdom is the same as fighting against ourselves, because we actually come from this wisdom.

*

That which offends you only weakens you. Being offended creates the same destructive energy that offended you in the first place - so transcend your ego and stay in peace.

Choose to be in close proximity to people, who are empowering, who appeal to your sense of connection to intention, who see the greatness in you, who feel connected to God, and who live a life that gives evidence that Spirit has found celebration through them. /Dr Wayne Dyer

 

The more a person shows off how powerful they are, the more it reflects how weak they are. This has to do with the ego because the ego is not confident and secure.The ego is like an eggshell, it doesn't take much to crack it. Power is interconnected with fear because we build power so we can use it to defend our fears. By controlling everything we diminish our connection with the unknown until the point that we make ourselves totally unavailable to it. If we reach that point our spontaneity ceases to exist and we are just bodies walking around following habits and routines but without a spirit./Panda

"This is not the true reality. The true reality is behind the screen. In truth, we are not here. This is our shadow. Behind the screen is our soul, alive, dynamic, eternal and beyond time and space"(/Rumi)

 *

How you feel about yourself is more than a private internal matter. It determines how you interact with others and, ultimately, how you interact with the universe.

*

Through integration of body and soul, we can reach through the confusion of thoughts and feelings linked to the physical world. Creating authentic power - the alignment of your personality with your soul - requires discovering the parts of your personality that are creating destructive consequences and changing them! (/G Zukav)

 *

You learn to love by putting yourself in situations that challenge you to be loving

 *

Remember, it is the world within-, your thoughts, feelings and imagination that makes your world without. It is therefore, the only creative power-, and everything which you find in your world of expression has been created by you in the inner world of your mind, consciously or unconsciously.

*

What makes us formed beings? Differentiation. Perfect balance would be our destruction. What makes motion possible is this universe? Lost balance.

*

If you strive only to avoid the darkness or cling to the light, you cannot live in balance. Try striving to be conscious of all that you are.

 *

What can you say to someone that is so meaningful that he will carry with him until death? Only a message from the heart can reach that deep, heal that powerfully, and last that long.

 

You cannot be a spiritually evolved person and an emotionally unevolved person at the same time

 *

Relationships illuminate parts of your personality that are unhealed.

 *

If you have trouble forgiving people, pretend the next time you meet them-, that its their last day on earth. As they express their anger, do not start arguing or try to defend yourself, simply remain silent, hold your heart open and focus your love on them.

*

The more you act from integrity, the more evolved you become

 *

To dissolve fear, turn and look directly at it, for what you face dissolves in the light of consciousness

 *

Focusing speeds up time and directs energy

*

When you are feeling depreciated, angry or drained, it’s a sign that other people are not open to your energy.

 

Think of an upcoming meeting with a friend or loved one. What is the higher purpose of your meeting? It could be to encourage or support each other or to help with a decision. How could you assist the other person in creating a higher vision of who they are? How could they assist you in the same way? The next time you are together, decide that you will focus and act on the higher purpose of the meeting.

*

Pain is only triggered by another person when there is already pain within you. Every time another person creates pain in you it’s a gift, it is showing you an area in which your heart has not yet learned to be open.

*

You have drawn certain people into your life to show you the places where you need to become more open.  When we no longer are dependent on the constant confirmation from our environment, we can start to choose our reactions instead of being a victims of emotions and reactions. This will lead to peace of mind.

As long as people dont surrender into the now, unconsciously the roleplaying will be a huge part of your interaction between people. When you surrender into the now, you no longer need the defenses or masks of the ego. You will be very real, and in simplicity with life. The ego will think this is dangerous and that you will get hurt. Yes you will become vulnerable, but what the ego doesn't know is that only through letting go of the resistance, by becoming vulnerable, are you able to discover your true essence of invulnerability.

*

When you deny your inner emotional pain, everything you do and think will get infected by it, as well as your relationships. When you are radiating your pain out in your subtle energyfield, others will subliminally pick it up. If they are unconscious about it, they can even feel forced to hurt or attack you somehow, or you can hurt them by unconsciously projecting your own pain. You are attracting and manifesting relationships and circumstances that is in proportion to your inner state./E Tolle

 Most relationships between people are based on a mixture of love and attachment. This is not pure love for it is based on a desire for our own happiness - we value the other person because they make us feel good.

Pure love is unmixed with attachment and stems entirely from a concern for others happiness. It never gives rise to problems but only to peace and happiness for both ourself and others. We need to remove attachment from our minds, but this does not mean that we have to abandon our relationships. Rather we should learn to distinguish attachment from love, and gradually try to remove all traces of attachment from our relationships and to improve our love until it becomes pure. /Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
