“There is nothing to do. Just be. Do nothing. Be. No climbing mountains and sitting in caves. I do not even say: ‘be yourself’, since you do not know yourself. Just be. Having seen that you are neither the ‘outer’ world of perceivables, nor the ‘inner’ world of thinkables, that you are neither body nor mind – just be.” ~– Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
“There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done, nothing you can sing that can’t be sung, nothing you can say– but you can learn how to play the game. There’s nothing you can make that can’t be made, no one you can save that can’t be saved, nothing you can do– but you can learn how to be you in time.” ~Lennon/McCartney
“The very idea of going beyond the dream is illusory. Why go anywhere? Just realize that you are dreaming a dream you call the world, and stop looking for ways out.
“The dream is not your problem. Your problem is that you like one part of your dream and not another. Love all, or none of it, and stop complaining. When you have seen the dream as a dream, you have done all that need be done.”
~Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, from I Am That
“Moods are in the mind and do not matter. Go within, go beyond. Cease being fascinated by the content of your consciousness. When you reach the deep layers of your true being, you will find that the mind’s surface-play affects you very little.” ~Nisargadatta Maharaj
