Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.

What? Me Worry?

The great mystery of Life, seemingly so incomprehensible, is simply due to seeking the Truth as an object.

Hey, it's my blog, and I've only used up one of my three sentences (for me, myself, and I).

Here's my others:

"Nothing to do, nowhere to go, no one to become."
--Brian Hines

"The eye with which I see God is exactly the same eye with which God sees me."
--Meister Eckhart

And a bonus sentence, from someone who emailed me and didn't want to post it as a comment (but I do).

"Nobody knows fuck about fuck."

The art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mood of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change; for happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up.

I brake for blondes.

Actually, the one sentence I prefer is "Nothing is everything, everything is nothing."

You'd be right about me. I think love has been misunderstood into some kind of sticky gooey thing that isn't really about true love which is about wanting the best for another-- the real best-- and for yourself. One sentence is hard to come up with but maybe like what Jesus said-- love yourself as you love others. It takes a lifetime to really understand and live that-- if someone ever does. It covers all the bases because truly loving is its own reward and you don't care about rewards from others or what comes next. It increases the inner person and their energy level. It just is often mistaken what it is.

I was about to write "practice makes perfect" when my attention was caught by Rain's offering:

*truly loving is its own reward and you don't care about rewards from others or what comes next*

I have only recently comprehended what Rain has written here. As a "truth" it can only be experienced and from my experience it can only be realised by practice.

So. Not one sentance, but many, and both of them completely subjective. Can religion/spirituality be reduced to a soundbite?

love is the very core of your being

Hi guys,

My spiritual sentence is:

"Who is this who repeats the Master's name"
