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.

Henry Miller (1891 - 1980)

A Quote by Anthony De Mello on spirituality, awakening, teacher, dancing, enlightenment, and awareness

Waking up is unpleasant, you know. You are nice and comfortable in bed. It is irritating to be woken up. That’s the reason the wise guru will not attempt to wake people up. I hope I’m going to be wise here and make no attempt whatsoever to wake you up if you are asleep. It is really none of my business, even though I say to you at times, "Wake up!" My business is to do my thing, to dance my dance. If you profit from it fine; if you don’t, too bad! As the Arabs say, "The nature of rain is the same, but it makes thorns grow in the marshes and flowers in the gardens.

A Quote by Byron Katie on peace, freedom, violence, self, awakening, enlightnment, and teacher

A teacher of fear can’t bring peace on Earth. We have been trying to do it that way for thousands of years. The person who turns inner violence around, the person who finds peace inside and lives it, is the one who teaches what true peace is. We are waiting for just one teacher.

You’re the one.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on hug, correction, children, teacher, education, modesty, and respect

Of course you will insist on modesty in the children, and respect to their teachers, but if the boy stops you in your speech, cries out that you are wrong and sets you right, hug him!

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

A Quote by C. W. Leadbeater on avatars, religion, supermen, prophet, teacher, divine, life, buddha, rishi, saint, spirit, and theosophy

 The records of every great religion show the presence of such Supermen, so full of the Divine Life that again and again they have been taken as the very representatives of God Himself.

A Quote by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi on buddhism, self, teacher, and teaching

The purpose of studying Buddhism is not to study Buddhism, but to study ourselves. That is why we have teaching. But the teaching is not ourselves. It is some explanation of ourselves. To study the teaching is to know yourselves. That is why we do not ever attach to the teaching, or to the teacher. The moment you meet a teacher you should leave the teacher, and you should be independent. You want a teacher so that you can be independent. So you study yourselves. You have the teacher for yourselves, not for the teacher.
