“The only real service we can render to that which we perceive and interpret in phenomenal existence as ‘others’ is by awakening to universal consciousness ourselves… Intellectual understanding should be not indispensable to a ‘simple’ mind, but with our conditioning, it would seem to be an almost inevitable preliminary”.

Distinguishing between consciousness and what it is conscious of, we might recognize the mirror apart from what is reflected on it.

Suffering

May 11, 2010 § Leave a comment

“A truth that many people never understand is that the more you try to avoid suffering the more you suffer, because smaller and more insignificant things begin to torture you in proportion to your fear of being hurt… There is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it’s better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams, than to be defeated without ever knowing what you’re fighting for… Because ignorance about who we really are, is the origin of all human suffering.”
__Thomas Merton __Paulo Coelho __Buddha.
