self

A Quote by Mark Epstein on self, buddhism, and psychology

The central premise of this book is that the Western psychological notion of what it means to have a self is flawed.

A Quote by Mark Epstein on buddhism, happiness, self, and letting go

Buddhism teaches us that happiness does not come from any kind of acquisitiveness, be it material or psychological. Happiness comes from letting go. In Buddhism, the impenetrable, separate, and individuated self is more of the problem than the solution.

A Quote by Henry Miller on greatness, self, wisdom, destiny, guidance, and teacher

No man is great enough or wise enough for any of us to surrender our destiny to. The only way in which anyone can lead us is to restore to us the belief in our own guidance.

A Quote by David Abram on earth, land, environment, experience, self, emotions, and science

The animate earth – this moody terrain that we experience differently in anger and in joy, in grief and in love – is both the soil in which all our sciences are rooted and the rich humus into which their results ultimately return, whether as nutrients or as poisons. Our spontaneous experience of the world, charged with subjective, emotional, and intuitive content, remains the vital and dark ground of all our objectivity

A Quote by Robert Grudin on self, generosity, meaning, purpose, giving, action, and need

No psychological message is so open to question as that which tells us that we have nothing left to do or to give.

A Quote by Robert Grudin on change, transformation, life, chaos, changing, and self

That morning I experienced vividly, if almost subliminally, the reality of change itself: how it fools our sentinels and undermines our defenses, how careful we are to look for it in the wrong places, how it does not reveal itself until it is beyond redress, how vainly we search for it around us and find too late that is has occurred within us.
