It is characteristic of all deep human problems that they are not to be approached without some humor and some bewilderment.

Why do you stay in prison
when the door is so wide open?
Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.

The day you are discontented not because you want more of something but without knowing what it is you want; when you are sick at heart of everything that you have been pursuing so far and you are sick of the pursuit itself, then your heart will attain a great clarity, an insight that will cause you mysteriously to delight in everything and in nothing.
- Anthony de Mello
Although hundreds or thousands of explanations are given, there is only one thing to be understood. Know the one thing that liberates everything: Awareness itself, your own true nature.

Learn to watch both your experience and your reactions to your experience. This process of observant attention and witnessing will enable you to see that your fundamental and essential sense of identity exists as an unchanging point of Awareness within the heart of all changing conditions and circumstance.v
This Awareness is grounded in the present moment and never exists outside of Now. It is always accessible and never exists somewhere other than Here. It is the immediate and undeniable Center of who you imagine yourself to be.
Reside in this Center, and realize that the essence of this Awareness is not separate from That which manifests before, around and within you.
- Metta Zetty
Understand the obstructions you are putting in the way of love, freedom, and happiness and they will drop. Turn on the light of awareness and the darkness will disappear. Happiness is not something you acquire; love is not something you produce; love is not something you have; love is something that has you.
- Anthony de Mello
