the self

A Quote by Masahisa Goi on mind, the self, god, and heart

To pray is, first of all, to let one's mind be empty.  It is to cast aside for a while "the self" that has existed until now, letting only God live in one's heart.

A Quote by Ashtavakra Gita on life and the self

What is yesterday, tomorrow, or today? What is space, or eternity? I sit in my own radiance. What is the self, or the not-self? What is thinking, or not thinking? What is good or evil? I sit in my own splendor.

Ashtavakra Gita
