No price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
Whenever I climb I am followed by a dog called 'Ego'.
Relaxation is the art of letting go.
Nothing in this world is a gift. Whatever must be learned must be learned the hard way.
The ability to let go and to accept life is the key of happiness.
All methods of meditation are nothing but methods to help you to remember the art of let-go. I say remember, because you knew it already. And you know it still, but that knowledge is being repressed by the society.
Once a man worries, he clings to anything out of desperation; and once he clings he is bound to get exhausted or to exhaust whomever or whatever he is clinging to. A warrior-hunter, on the other hand, knows he will lure game into his traps over and over again, so he doesn't worry.
To seek the perfection of the warrior's spirit is the only task worthy of our temporariness, our manhood.
Health issues are often associated with our spiritual state.
Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.
To me there is nothing more sacred than love and laughter, and there is nothing more prayerful than playfulness.
An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea.
Be like the fountain that overflows, not like the cistern that merely contains.
Go inwards. Find your inner space, and suddenly, you will find an explosion of light, of beauty, of ecstasy -as if suddenly thousands of roses have blossomed within you and you are full of their fragrance.
Death. The certain prospect of death could sweeten every life with a precious and fragrant drop of levity- and now you strange apothecary souls have turned it into an ill-tasting drop of poison that makes the whole of life repulsive.
Most of our energy goes into upholding our importance... if we were capable of losing some of that importance, two extraordinary things would happen to us. One, we would free our energy from trying to maintain the illusory idea of our grandeur;and two we would provide ourselves with enough energy to... catch a glimpse of the actual grandeur of the universe.
Constant anger can cause illnesses like arthritis, heart disease, and cancer.
The mind is the world and the no-mind is freedom from the world. The mind is misery and no-mind is the end of misery and the beginning of ecstasy.
Spirituality is rebellion; religiousness is orthodoxy. Spirituality is individuality; religiousness is just remaining part of the crowd psychology. Religiousness keeps you a sheep, and spirituality is a lion's roar.
The whole universe is within us.
An average man is too concerned with liking people or with being liked himself. A warrior likes, that's all. He likes whatever or whomever he wants, for the hell of it.
When you love, you have to become nobody. If you remain somebody, then love never happens.
The men who love power never fall in love. Even if they fall in love they keep themselves at a distance.
Yesterday is but today's memory, tomorrow is today's dream.
It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship and persevering courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and unless that affinity is created in a moment, it will not be created for years or even generations.
