True Self

A Quote by Kaya McLaren on secrets, true self, communion, friendship, miracles, revelation, acceptance, listening, kaya mclaren, and church of the dog

Maybe people share their secret selves with me because they sense it won't make me feel uncomfortable.  Quite the contrary.  I always feel like I've experienced a miracle when it happens.  I guess, because to me, to reveal one's true self, one's spirit self, is to reveal God.

A Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer on true self

The intellectual attainments of a man who thinks for himself resemble a fine painting, where the light and shade are correct, the tone sustained, the colour perfectly hamonized; it is true to life.

A Quote by Takuan Soho on true self, zen, buddha nature, and takuan soho

True Self is the Self that existed before the division of heaven and earth and before one's father and mother were born. This Self is the Self within me, the birds and the beasts, the grasses and the trees and all phenomena. It is excatly what is called 'Buddha Nature". 

This Self has no shape or form, has no birth, has no death. It is not a Self that can be seen with the aid of your present physical eye. Only the (hu)man who has received enlightenment is able to see this. The (hu)man who does see this is said to have seen into her own nature and became a Buddha. It is to use neither thought nor reasoning and to look straight ahead.

A Quote by Roy Croft on love, true self, and better person

“I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out.”

A Quote by Amy Georgette on wealth, love, laughter, meals, share, dreams, connections, hopes, treasures, and true self

Wealth is not measured by dollars and cents but by the love we make, the laughter we enjoy, the meals we share, the dreams we experience and the hopes we create.  Real connections are our most precious treasures, whether they are with those that share our orbit or with our true and humble selves.

A Quote by Steven E. Baxter on awakening, enlightenment, overcoming, false self, true self, tiger, and sweat

Awakening is the process of overcoming your false self and discovering your True Self.  It begins when you decide to grab the tiger by the tail and ends with the tiger tenderly licking the sweat off your brow and face.

A Quote by Dag Hammarskjöld on falsehood, truth, cruel, cruelty, animal, self, and true self

You cannot play with the animal in you without becoming wholly animal, play with falsehood without forfeiting your right to truth, play with cruelty without losing your sensitivity of mind.  He who wants to keep his garden tidy does not reserve a plot for weeds.
