So spiritual practice is possible for all of us. You cannot say, ‘I’m just too busy, I have no time for meditation.’ No. Walking from one building to another, walking from the parking lot to your office, you can always enjoy walking mindfully, and enjoy every one of your steps. Each step you take in mindfulness can help you release the tension in your body, release the tension in your feelings, and bring about healing, joy and transformation.

When we stop opposing reality, action becomes simple, fluid, kind, and fearless.

If, then, I were asked for the most important advice I could give, that which I considered to be the most useful to the men of our century, I should simply say: in the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.

Making Friends With The Real World


'In the practice of meditation, having developed a trust in oneself, slowly that expands its expression outward, and the world becomes a friendlier world rather than a hostile world. You could say that you have changed the world: You have become the king or queen of the universe. On the other hand, you can't exactly say that, because the world has come toward you, to return your friendship. It tried all kinds of harsh ways to deal with you at the beginning, but finally the world and you begin to speak with each other, and the world becomes a real world, a completely real world, not at all an illusory world or a confused world. It is a real world. You begin to realize the reality of elements, the reality of time and space, the reality of emotions - the reality of everything.'

If you wish to be happy, no one can stop you. Similarly, if you wish to be free, no one can stop you. In fact the universe encourages and supports your freedom. Why? Because to be happy and free is your natural state.
Don’t try to change the world. First, change yourself or rather, your self-perception, and you find the world automatically corresponding to the level of your understanding.
You will find that it has always been you who set the pace and depth of your experience by recognising and honouring your true nature.

The true person is. Not anyone in particular; But, like the deep blue color. Of the limitless sky, It is everyone, everywhere in the world.
