If they don’t need you, it’s okay, you do not live for other people.”

Surrender your existence to existence. Discover your spontaneity.
To entertain the belief that you know what you are going to do in the future or next week is a madness.
What a restriction, a limitation and a repression. Life flows spontaneously and is infinitely greater than all your plans or intentions put together.
Why spoil it with hasty and vain projections? Let it be whatever it will be. Give up trying to manipulate.
This is Freedom.” - Mooji

It is not the brains that matter most, but that which guides them - the character, the heart, generous qualities, progressive ideas."
- Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Some nights the sky wept stars that quickly floated and disappeared into the darkness before our wishes could meet them.” - Ishmael Beah

Self-knowledge is not a thing to be bought in books, nor is it the outcome of a long painful practice and discipline; but it is awareness, from moment to moment, of every thought and feeling as it arises in relationship.

Relationship is not on an abstract ideological level, but an actuality, the relationship with property, with people and with ideas. Relationship implies existence; and as nothing can live in isolation, to be is to be related.

Our conflict is in relationship, at all the levels of our existence; and the understanding of this relationship, completely and extensively, is the only real problem that each one has.

This problem cannot be postponed nor be evaded. The avoidance of it only creates further conflict and misery. The escape from it only brings about thoughtlessness which is exploited by the crafty and the ambitious.”
- J. Krishnamurti
