Awareness ~ Jeff Foster

“Just as the ocean allows every wave, Awareness allows every thought and feeling.” – Jeff Foster

Art arises from consciousness ~ Jean Klein

“A work of art always arises from the background: Consciousness. Be it music, painting, architecture, poetry or sculpture, It is always seen by the artist in an instant, like a flash of lightening, as it surges forth from deep within him.” – Jean Klein

Presence of stillness ~ Jean Klein

It is like being in the desert. First, you have to listen to the absence of the sound and call it silence. then suddenly you may be taken by the presence of stillness where you are one with listening to itself. – Jean Klein

Follow Silence ~ Jean klein

“Go deeply into the urge to be silent and not the mental interference of how, where and when. If you follow silence to its source you can be taken by it in a moment.”
― Jean Klein, Who Am I?: The Sacred Quest

Importance of understanding ~ Jean Klien

“What is important is neither pleasure nor pain, success nor failure, what is important is to understand that neither of them have any importance whatsoever. This understanding calls for peace, calm and serenity.”
― Jean Klein, Be Who You Are
