A Quote by Sage Vasishtha on woman, lover, sage, truth, enlightened, housework, behavior, focus, possess, desire, and heart

When thus the truth is seen, desire to possess does not arise in the heart.
Even as a woman who has a lover goes about doing her housework with her heart absorbed in contemplation of that lover, the enlightened sage functions in this world while his consciousness is firmly established in the truth.

In both these ases it is impossible for anyone to prevent such behavior - i.e. make the woman forget her love for make the sage forget the truth.

A Quote by Elysha on accountability, advaita, adyashanti, apocalypse, authenticity, awakening, awareness, beauty, behaviour, being, bible, biology, bliss, buddha, buddhism, catholic, cessation, changes, christ, christian, clarity, communication, concepts

As you learn to leave alone the activity of unconsciously trying to be the mindbody that you think that you are - the mindbody that this "you" is currently flowing through - and you learn to move as this one that you truly are - this "you" of you; the very heart of existence - steadily, consciously and momentarily, the continuity of the ever deepening of this innermost as it keeps on entering its manifestation, through this mindbody that you find yourself flowing through, allows you to simply bubble in the sheer joy, pleasure, peace, delightfulness and stillness that this "you" of you is.

A Quote by Robert Schwartz on courage, light, sage, healer, awake, and awakening

It is difficult to be that shining light when most around you desire only darkness. It is the true healer, the true sage, who remains sage amongst those who are not awake. Take heart, and remain at courage.

A Quote by C^3 on sage, wisdom, truth, beauty, being, silence, stillness, silent, still, resting sage, chad, christopher, cobb, light, shine, smile, smiling, knowing, oneness, unity, and love

X.
The nature of light is to shine.
The way of the river is to return home to its sea.
The essence of human is being.
For the sage there are no answers to the important
questions of existence such as, who am I and
why am I here.
The sage is silent.
The sage is smiling.
The sage just IS.

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 Hindu Teaching on hindu, sage, guru, king, mango, fruit, taste, sweet, and flavor

A king asked a sage to explain the Truth. In response the sage asked the king how he would convey the taste of a mango to someone who had never eaten anything sweet. No matter how hard the king tried, he could not adequately describe the flavor of the fruit, and, in frustration, he demanded of the sage "Tell me then, how would you describe it?" The sage picked up a mango and handed it to the king saying "This is very sweet. Try eating it!"

A Quote by unknown on words, healing, sage, and wisdom

There once was a wise sage who wandered the countryside.  One day, as he passed near a village, he was approached by a woman who saw he was a sage and told him of a sick child nearby.  She beseeched him to help this child.  The sage came to the village, and a crowd gathered around him, for such a man was a rare sight.  One woman brought the sick child to him, and he said a prayer over her.

 "Do you really think your prayer will help her, when medicine has failed?" yelled a man from the crowd.

 "You know nothing of such things!  You are a stupid fool!" said the sage to the man.

The man became very angry with these words and his face grew hot and red.  He was about to say something, or perhaps strike out, when the sage walked over to him and said: "If one word has such power as to make you so angry and hot, may not another have the power to heal?" 

 And thus, the sage healed two people that day.

A Quote by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche on body, self, wisdom, listen, reason, wise, and sage

Behind your thoughts and feelings, my brother, there stands a mighty ruler. an unknown sage - whose name is self. In yourt body he dwells; he is your body. There is more reason in your body than in your best wisdom.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on tantric, nondual, and sage

The integral sage, the nondual sage, is here to show us otherwise. Known generally as "Tantric," these sages insist on transcending life by living it. They insist on finding release by engagement, finding nirvana in the midst of samsara, finding total liberation by complete immersion.
