Thinking…

We are sick with fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas. Meditation is therefore the art of suspending verbal and symbolic thinking for a time, somewhat as a courteous audience will stop talking when a concert is about to begin.

Alan Watts

At odds

Suffering occurs when you believe in a thought that is at odds with what is, what was, or what may be. Experience this moment free of your mind’s interpretations of it. You are not your story. They are not your story about them. The world is not your story about the world. Suffering is how Life tells you that you are resisting or misperceiving what is real and true

Adyashanti

Only three things

When you die, only three things will remain of you, since you will abandon all material things on the threshold of the Otherworld:

What you have taught to others,

what you have created with your hands,

and how much love you have spread.

So learn more and more in order to teach wise, long-lasting values. Work more and more to leave the world things of great beauty. 

François Bourillon, A French Druid Triad
