A Quote by Byron Katie on reality, suffering, enlightenment, awakening, and compassion

The end of suffering happens in this very moment, whether you're watching a terrorist attack or doing the dishes. And compassion begins at home. Because I don't believe my thoughts, sadness can't exist. That's how I can go to the depths of anyone's suffering, if they invite me, and take them by the hand and walk them out of it into the sunlight of reality.

I've taken that walk myself.

A Quote by Byron Katie on thoughts, reality, personal, thinking, beliefs, and self-love

Thoughts are just what is. They appear. They're innocent. They're not personal. They're like the breeze or the leaves on the trees or the raindrops falling. Thoughts arise like that, and we can make friends with them. Would you argue with a raindrop?

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 Adyashanti on enlightenment, awakening, one, and reality

The aim of my teaching is enlightenment--awakening from the dream state of separateness into the reality of the One. In short, my teaching is focused on realizing what you are.
