A Quote by Byron Katie on perception, reality, truth, story, and self

The world is nothing but my perception of it. I see only through myself. I hear only through the filter of my story.

A Quote by Byron Katie on self, marriage, self-love, married, honesty, and integrity

The voice within is what I'm married to. All marriage is a metaphor for that marriage. My lover is the place inside me where an honest yes and no come from. That's my true partner. It's always there.
And to tell you yes when my integrity says no is to divorce that partner.

A Quote by Adyashanti on awakening, quiet, freedom, self, enlightenment, and emptiness

When you rest in quietness and your image of yourself fades, and your image of the world fades, and your ideas of others fade, what's left? A brightness, a radiant emptiness that is simply what you are.

A Quote by Adyashanti on beautiful, truth, authentic, self, and true nature

What am I, really? The beautiful thing…is nobody can tell us what we are. Nobody can really tell us. Not in a way that’s going to be satisfactory to us. Our true nature is self-authenticating. When we bump into our true nature, it authenticates itself. Something inside us knows. This…is what has been sought for, longed for, looked for. This is it. Usually, it’s not what we expected…

A Quote by Adyashanti on self, truth, and knowledge

Nobody can give us what we really already are. Wouldn’t it be terrible if somebody could give you what you really are? …’cause if they could give it to you, they could take it away.
