- Truth Pointers
"Our essential being of pure Awareness lends its reality to all seeming things, giving them their apparently independent existence, just as a screen lends its reality to the characters and objects in a movie, giving them their own apparently independent existence."
Objects don’t have existence, existence has objects.
"If you don’t refer to a thought or a memory, do you have any experience of suffering?"
"Beliefs are transparant. We don’t see them but it's the filter through which we see the world."
"There is no such thing as 'world' or 'matter' independent of thoughts. There are no thoughts in deep sleep and there is no world. Just as a spider emits the thread of a web from within itself and withdraws it again within itself, in the same way the mind projects the world from within itself and later reabsorbs it into itself."
"If we would be able to control our thoughts, we would choose happy thoughts all the time, won't we?"
"Suffering is born with the thought : I don’t like what is present and/or I want something else that is not present now."
"The only barrier to peace and happiness is the thought that considers the current situation wrong or inadequate."
