A Quote by G. I. Gurdjieff on realization, necessity, self-change, observing oneself, self-observation, inner processes, instrument, and awakening

Self-observation brings man to the realization of the necessity of self-change. And in observing himself a man notices that self-observation itself brings about certain changes in his inner processes. He begins to understand that self-observation is an instrument of self-change, a means of awakening.

A Quote by G. I. Gurdjieff on self-knowledge, realization, necessity, self-change, observing oneself, self-observation, inner processes, instrument, awakening, and slave

Without self-knowledge, without understanding the working and functions of his machine, man cannot be free, he cannot govern himself and he will always remain a slave.

A Quote by J. (Jiddu) Krishnamurti on meditation, krishnamurti, experience, visions, perception, realization, recognition, memory, search, and mind

Is there a new experience in meditation? The desire for experience, the higher experience which is beyond and above the daily or the commonplace, is what keeps the well-spring empty. The craving for more experience, for visions, for higher perception, for some realization or other, makes the mind look outward, which is no different from its dependence on environment and people. The curious part of meditation is that an event is not made into an experience. It is there, like a new star in the heavens, without memory taking it over and holding it, without the habitual process of recognition and response in terms of like and dislike. Our search is always outgoing; the mind seeking any experience is outgoing. Inward-going is not a search at all; it is perceiving. Response is always repetitive, for it comes always from the same bank of memory.

J. Krishnamurti (1895 - 1986)

A Quote by Sadhguru on guru, sage, yoga, wisdom, inspiration, transformation, change, perception, consciousness, enlightenment, realization, and spirituality

"I'm not interested in the wellbeing of society because society is a big lie.  Where is society?  I only see individual beings and only the individual can grow.  Each one is enormous and tremendous in his own way-each one is unique.  " -Sadhguru

A Quote by Swami Sai Premananda on meditation, witness, compassion, kindness, realization, life, living, and awareness


I am the ultimate witness. I see many things. Sometimes I want to run away from all these things. I think it’s too hard, it will never change, never, never, never change. It’s too much because I see all the small, little things that go unobserved. The little looks in the eyes, or the sarcastic tone that comes up between people. I pick up on all of it and I say, “Oh so sad,” because unfortunately they do not even realize it themselves. They are living their lives in complete reactivity. They are not really living life but being lived by life.

So this is why meditation is very important. It leads you to become a witness in the physical world so that you can perfect your character. Then you can be of service to the world by being a creature who is acting in love, compassion and kindness in the world all the time. Try it. Step out of yourselves in public and just witness; see what you see of yourself. Learn from it and challenge yourself to be a greater person today than you were yesterday by behaving from a place of complete conscious awareness and not ignorance.

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj on non-duality, self, awareness, and realization

We grow through investigation, and to investigate we need experience. We tend to repeat what we have not understood. If we are sensitive and intelligent, we need not suffer. Pain is a call for attention and the penalty of carelessness. Intelligent and compassionate action is the only remedy.

Nisargadatta Maharaj
