“You cant find consciousness. It isn’t a thing. It is the knower of a thing.”– Swami Sarvapriyananda.
Seek and Find where your home is ~ Osho
Without suffering nobody can become aware. That’s why birds are not aware – They are not in suffering. Trees are not aware, They are not in suffering. Only man suffers: Man is a special case. You have been thrown astray so that you have to seek and find where your home is.– Osho

Life isn’t as Serious ~ Eckhart Tolle
“Life isn’t as Serious as the mind makes it out to be”– Eckhart Tolle
Hate ~ Osho
Hate exists in the past and the future. You cannot hate in the present – Try, and you will be utterly impotent. Try it today: sit silently and hate somebody in the present, with no reference to the past or the future… You cannot do it. It cannot be done; in the very nature of things it is impossible.– Osho

Walk Mindfully ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
“Walk as if you are kissing the earth with your feet”– Thich Nhat Hanh
Suffering is a Message ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Truth ~ S.N. Goenka
The Buddha taught the Four Noble Truths. These include the theoretical and practical aspects of his teaching.
- The Noble Truth of Suffering: the whole discipline of suffering has to be known by experience.
- The Noble Truth of the Arising of Suffering: the elimination of desire has to be experienced.
- The Noble Truth of Elimination of Suffering: the realization of Nibbāna.
- The Noble Truth of the Path leading to the Ending of All Suffering: this has to be evolved by repeated practice.
Hearing these truths is crucial. Although understanding them at the intellectual level is good but not enough. To enjoy these truths, One need to gain knowledge about them through experiential wisdom.
– Excerpts From SN Goenka’s Discourses
Touch of existence on consciousness ~ Osho
The day you have touched existence with your consciousness, Religion is born in you, and you are born again. This is your real birth– Osho on Existence and Rebirth
