A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on dreams, transformation, self-awareness, change, and awakening

Once upon a time, I dreamt I was a butterfly...
Suddenly I awoke...
Now, I do not know whether I was then
a man dreaming I was a butterfly,
or whether I am now a butterfly
dreaming that I am a man.

Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC - c. 275 BC)

A Quote by Osho Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh on truth, hammering, awakening, awake, and communication

Remember: whatsoever I am saying is not the thing that I want to say to you. Whatsoever I am saying has nothing to do with truth, because truth cannot be said. Whatsoever I am saying is nothing but a hammering. If you become awake, you will see the truth.

Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

A Quote by Robert Schwartz on courage, light, sage, healer, awake, and awakening

It is difficult to be that shining light when most around you desire only darkness. It is the true healer, the true sage, who remains sage amongst those who are not awake. Take heart, and remain at courage.

A Quote by Abd-Ru-Shin on awakening, spirituality, path, others, opinions, ascension, and transformation

"Only he who bestirs himself can advance spiritually. The fool who uses extraneous aids for this, in the form of the ready-made opinions of others, only walks his path as if on crutches, while ignoring his own healthy limbs."

A Quote by Adyashanti on adyashanti, buddhism, christianity, followers, awakening, and truth

It is good to remember that the goal of Buddhism is to create Buddhas, not Buddhists, as the goal of Christianity is to create Christs, not Christians. In the same vein, my teachings are not meant to acquire followers or imitators, but to awaken beings to eternal truth and thus to awakened life and living.

A Quote by Steven E. Baxter on awakening, understanding, ultimate reality, illusion, and god

Awakening is ultimately the journey of an individual toward an understanding of the nature of the Ultimate Reality behind the illusion that we only think is ultimately real.  It is the highest calling of man, for the destination is what many call God.

A Quote by Steven E. Baxter on awakening, enlightenment, overcoming, false self, true self, tiger, and sweat

Awakening is the process of overcoming your false self and discovering your True Self.  It begins when you decide to grab the tiger by the tail and ends with the tiger tenderly licking the sweat off your brow and face.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on identity, luke soloman, beginners luke, free novel, awakening, birth, rebirth, and photography

I wasn’t sure what was going on or what time it was or where I was or even, for that matter, who I was … but my gut told me something was terribly wrong. I opened my eyes slowly, as sensitive to light as a roll of film: just expose me and I’d vanish.
