"The essence of Lao Tzu's philosophy is the difficult art of getting out of one's own way - of learning how to act without forcing conclusions, of living in skillful harmony with the process of nature instead of trying to push them around. But in the Chinese language the word which we render as 'nature' has a special meaning not found in its English equivalent. Translated literally, it means, 'self-so'. For to the Chinese, nature is what works and moves by itself without having to be shoved about, wound up, or controlled by conscious effort. Your heart beats self-so, and, if you would give it half a chance, your mind can function "self-so" - though most of us are much too afraid of ourselves to try the experiment."
"Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is."
- Eckhart Tolle
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
Your hearts know in silence the secrets of the days and the nights.
And it is well you should.
Say not, "I have found the truth," but rather, "I have found a truth."
Selenay Of Antioch: "It makes me laugh, privately."
