It makes us vulnerable.
It requires us to enlarge, expand and become bigger.
Like the oxygen provided with each breath, we are denied its benefits until we relax and breathe in.”
“The moment you become aware of the ego in you, it is strictly no longer the ego but just an old, conditioned mind pattern.
Ego implies unawareness.
Awareness and ego cannot coexist.”
Understand the nature of impurity. If your key is bent, the lock will not open. Rumi
“Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless, like water.”
“Like the whales, each of us has a unique song or gift to offer the world and is meant to be heard by others.”
“You are a mansion with infinite rooms, yet you’ve convinced yourself you have to live in the basement of a haunted house.”
