- Truth Pointers
"You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic. If words control you that means that everyone else can control you. Breath and allow things to pass."
"If you don’t refer to a thought or a memory, do you have any experience of suffering?"
"As long as you belief you are an individual entity, separated from the rest of the world, you will suffer."
"Suffering is based on a perspective from which we look at our experience. And we can change that perspective, we can change that belief and erase that suffering."
"When we start to suffer, it tells us something very valuable. It means that we are not seeing the truth, and we are not relating from the truth. It's a beautiful pointer. It never fails."
"When there is no resistance there is no suffering."
"The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thought about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking. Separate them from the situation, which is always neutral. It is as it is."
"There is a very simple secret to being happy. Just let go of your demand on this moment. Anytime you have a demand on the moment to give you something or remove something, there is suffering."
"It's not the problem that causes your suffering, it's your thinking about the problem."
"Pain is physical, suffering is mental. Beyond the mind there is no suffering. Pain is essential for the survival of the body but none compels you to suffer. Suffering is due entirely to clinging or resisting. It's a sign of our unwillingness to flow with life."
