A human being is a part of a whole, called by us a universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest . . . a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole
of nature in its beauty.

– Albert Einstein

A sparrow falls and reveals my heart

by breaking it.

A look of pain and loss reveals my heart

by wounding it.

A compassionate touch reveals my heart

by healing it.

According to the William Glasser institute, the best way to learn something is to teach it.

Their research shows that we learn:

10% of what we read
20% of what we hear
30% of what we see
50% of what we see and hear
70% of what we discuss
80% of what we experience
95% of what we teach

If this is true, then we may find something we want to learn and start teaching it.
It will benefit us and others too.

Attachment is the great fabricator of illusions;

reality can be attained only by someone who is detached.

– Simone Weil

One of the profoundest laws of spiritual psychology is: you see what you are, and you are what you see. The observer cannot help conditioning what he or she observes.

Those who cannot love see a world where love has little place. Those who live to enlarge their love, by contrast, see a world of hope: a world of men and women who, despite their failings, are capable of love in the core of goodness in their hearts.

To see life from this lofty vantage, we need detachment, not from others but from ourselves. Source: http://www.easwaran.org

01.11.2011 INNER

Inner – extract from Everyday Tao by Deng Ming-Dao

The ability to persevere comes from inside ourselves.  Nothing outside can give it to us. When circumstances are against us, when life tries us to our very core, when all other resources are closed to us, we must have an inner well from which we can draw power.  It is like a castle in ancient times besieged by attackers.  If it has its own well and its own provisions, it can hold fast until aid comes.  The difference between survival and destruction is often the difference between how strong one’s inner resources are.

People look at the methods of following Tao and wonder why there is so much emphasis on preparing and training oneself.  After all, the standards of the ancients are so much higher that what is normally regarded as necessary.  This need for inner strength is one of the most compelling reasons for study.  Life is  not given to us, and fortune comes and goes without warning.  Therefore, it is wisdom to have the inner reserves to withstand the lassitudes of life.  It is only our inner will and energy that can be stronger than misfortune.

The wisdom of the Tao is to know the flow of the outer world.  But the genius of the Tao is to establish and sustain the inner force od a person.  That is our only hope of lasting long enough to follow the Tao to the end.
