A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, buddhism, stoicism, worldliness, maya, suffering, desire, and spirituality

The way of the Buddha involves a metaphysical stoicism, a way of overcoming the power that worldliness has over oneself: the world rules us through our suffering no less than through our desires and appetites and hopes; all of this is Maya, the universe of delusorily desirable and despicable goods. The primal insight of Buddha is not that the suffering of the world must first be mitigated but rather that we must learn to recognize that our DESIRES are no less a form of SUFFERING than are our AILMENTS. This is what qualifies Buddhism as an authentic form of spirituality, its transcendence over the finite and merely psychological domain.

A Quote by Maya Angelou on maya and angelou


When we come to it
We must confess that we are the possible...
We are the miraculous, the true wonders of this world
Free to choose our ends, and our new beginnings
That is when, and only when...
We come to it

Maya Angelou (1928 -)

A Quote by James Swartz on deep sleep, maya, vasanas, dream, and illusion

  " When one wakes up in the morning, one's whole life is neatly laid out, consistent with the past, to the degree that we even (apparently) remember the same language spoken the day before, suggesting previous experience had simply entered a dormant state."

Oh! joy for he who has escaped from this world of perfumes and color!
For beyond these colors and these perfumes, these are other colors in the heart and the soul.

A Quote by Shyamananda on maya, self-realization, bliss, authenticity, happiness, enlightenment, pain, and distress

Your unrest is the last cramp in your legs as you climb this mountain. Rest awhile, if you like.

But do not return to your old house. It is not your home any longer.

When you can see through the mist of Maya to the Self, that mist has not disappeared. You have just learned to see through it. "
