"Do not seek enlightenment, for you cannot find something that you already possess. Seek rather to fully claim that which is yours. Seek to live with the single-minded focus of one whose hair is on fire seeks water. And seek your water, seek the fullness of life, as if you have already found it."

"A quiet mind is all you need. All else will happen rightly, once your mind is quiet. As the sun on rising makes the world active, so does self-awareness affect changes in the mind. In the light of calm and steady self-awareness, inner energies wake up and work miracles without any effort on your part."
— Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (via wethinkwedream)
"To stay present in everyday life, it helps to be deeply rooted within yourself; otherwise, the mind, which has incredible momentum, will drag you along like a wild river."
