self

A Quote by Ken Wilber on self, one taste, and unity

Were you somebody different a thousand years ago? Will you be somebody different a thousand years from now? What is this One Self that is forever your own deepest being? Must you believe the lies of time? Must you swallow the insanity that One Spirit does not exist? Can you show me your Original Face, of which there is One and Only One in all the entire World?

A Quote by Ken Wilber on self, ego, connection, and one taste

When the thunder roars, do you not hear your Self? When the lightening cracks, do you not see your Self? When clouds float quietly across the sky, is this not your very own limitless Being, waving back at you?

A Quote by Vivianne Crowley on life, self, shadow, and masks

Our lives can be considered a sacred quest.  It is a quest which may have begun in this lifetime or many lifetimes before.  It is a quest to find ourselves:  who and what we really are.  To do this we must first cease to pretend to be what we are not.  We must cast away our Persona or mask.  We must be prepared to confront the Shadow, that which we are and rather were not.  Only then can we unify our conscious and unconscious minds and so give birth to the hidden Sun - the Self.

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on curiosity, internal self, external self, self, and stage

There were always in me, two women at least, one woman desperate and bewildered, who felt she was drowning and another who would leap into a scene, as upon a stage, conceal her true emotions because they were weaknesses, helplessness, despair, and present to the world only a smile, an eagerness, curiosity, enthusiasm, interest.

Our deepest wishes are whispers of our authentic selves.
We must learn to respect them.
We must learn to listen.

A Quote by Jim Morrison on freedom, self, and reality

The most important kind of freedom is to be who you really are. You trade in your reality for a role... You give up your ability to feel & in exchange put on a mask.

A Quote by Dogen Zenji on studying, the way, self, and enlightenment

Studying the Buddha way is studying oneself.
Studying oneself is forgetting oneself.
Forgetting oneself is being enlightened by all things.
Being enlightened by all things is to shed the body-mind of oneself, and those of others.
No trace of enlightenment remains, and this traceless enlightenment
continues endlessly.

Dogen Zenji (1200 - 1253)
