      This is a collection of what I call "short stoppers,"
      those pithy few words that say it all and simply
      stop you in your tracks. There is no next thought
      needed, nothing to add. Just stop, let it sink in.
      ~ Gloria
      You may try a hundred things, but love alone will
      release you from yourself. So never flee from
      love—not even from love in an earthly guise—for
      it is a preparation for the supreme Truth.
      ~ Jami (15th c. Persian Sufi poet) 

      See the false as false, and what remains is true.
      What is absent now will appear when what is
      now present disappears. Negation is the only
      answer to finding the ultimate truth – it is as
      simple as that.
      ~ Ramesh S. Balsekar
      via Along The Way

      A man does not have to go and find where his
      eyes are in order to see. The heart is there,
      always open to you, if you care to enter it,
      always supporting your movements, although you
      may be unaware of it. It is perhaps more
      correct to say that the Self is the Heart. Really
      the Self is the centre and is everywhere aware
      of itself as the Heart or Self-awareness.
      ~ Ramana Maharshi

      "Enlightenment has nothing to do with bliss, but
      refers to the load you carry — of wrong ideas,
      mistaken identities and fantasies worshipped as
      reality — which gets successively lighter as you
      carry them for what they are. No longer
      carrying this useless imaginary luggage brings
      clarity and weightlessness."

      "Disciples and devotees…what are most of them doing?
      Worshipping the teapot instead of drinking the tea!"
      ~ Wei Wu Wei

      Once you know that at the heart of your
      identity, you are simply awareness, you have
      grasped the essence of the teaching.There is no
      one to impress. There is no one to follow. There
      is nowhere to go. To simply be and abide in this
      awareness without hopes, expectations, and
      demands is the fountain of peace and bliss.
