A Quote by Joseph Addison on mortality, mystery, and morality

The union of the Word and Mind produces that mystery which
is called life...Learn deeply of the Mind and its mystery, for
their-in lies the secret of mortality.

A novel that does not uncover a hitherto unknown segment of existence is immoral. Knowledge is the novel's only morality.

A Quote by Adyashanti on life, right, worng, morality, living, agenda, and reailty

As soon as the mind pulls out an agenda and decides what needs to change, that's unreality. Life doesn't need to decide who's right and who's wrong. Life doesn't need to know the "right" way to go because it's going there anyway.

A Quote by Osho Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh on zen, man, religion, philosophy, culture, morality, creation, master, children, behaviour, playful, and serious

Zen's greatest contribution is to give you an alternative to the serious man. The serious man has made the world, the serious man has made all the religions. He has created all the philosophies, all the cultures, all the moralities; everything that exists around you is a creation of the serious man. Zen has dropped out of the serious world. It has created a world of its own which is very playful, full of laughter, where even great masters behave like children.

A Quote by jack Kornfield on morality, wisdom, freedom, expression, meditation, and bondage

Morality as taught by way of rules is extremely powerful and valuable in the development of practice. It must be remembered that it, like all the techniques in meditation, is merely a tool to enable one to eventually get to that place of unselfishness where morality and wisdom flow naturally. In the West, there's a myth that freedom means free expression--that to follow all desires wherever they take one is true freedom. In fact, as one serves the mind, one sees that following desires, attractions, repulsions is not at all freedom, but is a kind of bondage. A mind filled with desires and grasping inevitably entails great suffering. Freedom is not to be gained through the ability to perform certain external actions. True freedom is an inward state of being. Once it is attained, no situation in the world can bind one or limit one's freedom. It is in this context that we must understand moral precepts and moral rules.
