here and now

Enlightenment, for a wave in the ocean,
is the moment the wave realizes
it is water.
~Thich Nhat Hanh

“What we speak about anybody can reasonably understand.
And if it is understood it becomes a trap.
Understanding and not understanding are all in the scheme of ignorance, just a realm of mind.
This is not learning. This is your birthright.
You cannot study to be what you are.
You do not need to understand in order to breathe.”

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.” Thích Nhất Hạnh (via nondualteachings)

“Mistakes are, after all, the foundations of truth, and if a man does not know what a thing is, it is at least an increase in knowledge if he knows what it is not.” Carl Jung (via panatmansam)

“Surrender is to give oneself up to the original cause of one’s being. Do not delude yourself by imagining such a source to be some God outside you. One’s source is within oneself. Give yourself up to it. That means that you should seek the source and merge in it.” Ramana Maharshi (via panatmansam)
