A Quote by Byron Katie on transcendence, enlightenment, freedom, and time

So there's only transcendence in the moment. Nobody can be transcended forever. That's why I say, "Who cares if you're enlightened forever?"

A Quote by Byron Katie on suffering, reality, thoughts, and enlightenment

The only time we suffer  is when we believe a thought that argues with what is. When the mind is perfectly clear, what is is what we want.

A Quote by Byron Katie on heaven, thoughts, awakening, enlightenment, belief, happiness, and stress

So, how do you get back to heaven? To begin with, just notice the thoughts that take you away from it. You don't have to believe everything your thoughts tell you. Just become familiar with the particular thoughts you use to deprive yourself of happiness. It may seem strange at first to get to know yourself in this way, but becoming familiar with your stressful thoughts will show you the way home to everything you need.

A Quote by Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche on buddhism, realization, freedom, security, awakening, and enlightenment

The basics teachings of Buddha are about understanding what we are, who we are, why we are. When we begin to realize what we are, who we are, why we are, then we begin to realize what we are not, who we are not, why we are not. We begin to realize that we don’t have basic, substantial, solid, fundamental ground that we can exert anymore. We begin to realize that our ideas of security and our concept of freedom have been purely phantom experiences.

A Quote by Adyashanti on freedom, insecurity, free, spirituality, striving, spiritual, mind, seeking, and enlightenment

Inherent in the impulse to be free, is insecurity.  The impulse to be free comes from outside of the mind, and because of this, it makes the mind feel very insecure.  Most spiritual seekers move away from this insecurity by seeking and striving for a distant spiritual goal.  That’s how they avoid feeling insecure.
