But to find what true happiness is, we must actually be willing to be disturbed, surprised, wrong in our assumptions—and cast into a very deep well of unknowing. — Adyashanti, Falling into Grace

If I don’t believe in a personal God, is it possible for me not to believe in a personal me?

If God isn’t a person, and we are made in his image (just words painting a reflection of truth, I think), then it would make sense that we aren’t persons, either.

The ways in which I identified myself are one after another becoming meaningless, and tonight, I’m wondering what will be left of this person I thought I really was.

Each day, in itself, brings with it an eternity. — from The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
Forgiveness is the healing of the perception of separation. — A Course in Miracles (via lazyyogi)
To meet the Master with a fearless, open mind is to lose the entire world as you understood it to be. — Byron Katie, A Thousand Names for Joy
Stop now, right now, and look around you. This is your place in
the labyrinth. There is no place else you need to be. See with
eyes that aren’t fixed on goals, or focused on flaws. You are part
of the endless, winding beauty. And as you learn to see the
dappled loveliness of your life, as your new eyes help you begin
loving the labyrinth, you’ll slowly come to realize that the
labyrinth was made solely for the purpose of loving you.
— Martha Beck
Whenever you become anxious or stressed, outer purpose has taken over, and you lost sight of your inner purpose. You have forgotten that your state of consciousness is primary, all else secondary. — Eckhart Tolle
