“The greatest courage in life is to lose yourself — and that’s the primary requirement of love. Unless you lose yourself you cannot be in love. You can play the game called love, but you will never know the reality of love. You will be doing something else in the name of love. Deep down it will only be an ego trip — and love can never be an ego trip. Ego has to be dissolved, only then does love flow in you. And that is real courage. In a deep sense it is committing suicide — not of the body but of the mind. It is becoming mindless. Hence love looks to people like something mad, insane. In a way it is true, it is mad. Going beyond the mind is a certain kind of madness. Of course it is divine madness and it brings a sanity of its own kind. It beings an insight, an understanding, but is is totally different from intellectual understanding. It is not of the mind, it is of the beyond”—Osho (via eternalconsciousness)
“Many people are so imprisoned in their minds that the beauty of nature does not really exist for them. They might say, “What a pretty flower,” but that’s just a mechanical mental labelling. Because they are not still, not present, they don’t truly see the flower, don’t feel it’s essence, it’s holiness- just as they don’t know themselves, don’t feel their own essence, their own holiness.”—Eckhart Tolle (via mystic-moon)
"Many of you are looking for something or someone new to become important to you and fill a void. Go about this with extreme caution because it may become an obsession. Try to distinguish between your wants or needs and obsessive desire before making a move on anyone."

“Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something,
and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent.”—His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama (via eternalconsciousness)
