Your personal universe does not exist by itself. It is merely a limited and distorted view of the real. It is not the universe that needs improving, but your way of looking.

There are no "good " or "bad " people. Some are a little better or a little worse, but all are activated more by misunderstanding than malice.
Q: Are there not good desires and bad, high desires and low?
A: All desires are bad, but some are worse than others. Pursue any desire, it will always give you trouble.
Why desire at all? Desiring a state of freedom from desire will not set you free. Nothing can set you free, because you are free. See yourself with desireless clarity, that is all.

Today means boundless and inexhaustible eternity. Periods of months and years and of time in general are ideas of men, who calculate by number; but the true name of eternity is Today.
Life is this simple: We are living in a world that is absolutely transparent and the Divine is shining through it all the time. This is not just a nice story or a fable. It is true.
- Thomas Merton
After all, if I can't be myself, who can?
