A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj on desire, advaita, others, and mindfulness

Use your mind. Remember. Observe.
You are not different from others.
Most of their experiences are valid for you too.
Think clearly and deeply,
go into the structure of your desires
and their ramifications.
They are a most important part of your mental
and emotional make-up
and powerfully affect your actions.
Remember, you cannot abandon what you do not know.
To go beyond yourself, you must know yourself.

Nisargadatta Maharaj

A Quote by Jack on trust, others, and judgment

Learning to trust ourselves is a worthy practice, the practice of authenticity. This is the work of aligning the standards we have for ourselves with our deepest passions and dreams. It’s the work of making promises to ourselves and keeping them. It’s the work of creating and discovering the kind of resources that can and will support our success. It’s the work of knowing who we are without judgment.

Only when we trust ourselves can we trust others, wisely.

A Quote by Swami Sai Premananda on love, others, and self

When you take that love outside, remember this: we talk about loving others in the multitudes, but who are you really loving? You’re only loving yourself. So it’s good enough if you can at least cause no harm to others. Be within yourself and learn to love and perfect yourself. If you spend enough time loving yourself and the Jesus inside you, or the Ramakrishna inside you, or the Buddha or the Allah inside you, then that love will grow and blossom within you. Then it’s very easy to love others. So you think, so you become.

A Quote by Swami Sai Premananda on witnessing, self, others, goodness, and reflection

You see there are three steps: witnessing the mind, witnessing others and then witnessing yourself. That is the exact way in which it happens. All of this is transferred from inside to outside and then back to you. A perfect reflection of the mind; this is the main way that you can perfect yourself. It is your duty and responsibility to learn from others. Take what is good from others, and incorporate it within yourself. Take what needs enhancing in others and enhance it within.

A Quote by Shosan on zen, spiritual warrior, japan, self, others, prejudices, knowing yourself, ignorance, and delusion

Be aware of yourself and know yourself. No matter how much you have learned and how much you know, if you don't know yourself you don't know anything. Indeed, if you don't know yourself you cannot know anything else. People who don't know themselves criticize others from the point of view of their own ignorance. They consider what agrees with them to be good, and hate whatever doesn't go their way. They become irritated about everything, causing themselves to suffer by themselves, bothering themselves solely because of their own prejudices. If you know that not everyone will be agreeable to you, know that you won't be agreeable to everyone either. Those who have no prejudices in themselves do not reject people, and therefore people do not reject them.

A Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke on distance, others, and humanity

Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky.

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 - 1926)
