The More we value things, the less we value ourselves
Water can flow, or it can crash. Be water, my friend.
There is “what is” only when there is no comparing and to live with “what is” is to be peaceful.
“Take things as they are. Punch when you have to punch. Kick when you have to kick. “
“To become different from what we are, we must have some awareness of what we are.”
“The knowledge and skills you have achieved are meant to be forgotten so you can float comfortably in emptiness, without obstruction.”
Do not allow negative thoughts to enter your mind for they are the weeds that strange confidence.
Simplicity is the key to brilliance.
“If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”
The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus.
If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.
I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations and you’re not in this world to live up to mine.
Life itself is your teacher, and you are in a state of constant learning.
As you think, so shall you become.
After all, all knowledge simply means self-knowledge.
Life is an ever-flowing process and somewhere on the path some unpleasant things will pop up – it might leave a scar, but then life is flowing, and like running water, when it stops it grows stale. Go bravely on, my friend, because each experience teaches us a lesson. Keep blasting because life is such that sometimes it is nice and sometimes it is not.
The height of cultivation always runs to simplicity. the ability to express the utmost with the minimum. It is the halfway cultivation that leads to ornamentation.
“Take no thought of who is right or wrong or who is better than. Be not for or against. “
Flow in the living moment. — We are always in a process of becoming and nothing is fixed. Have no rigid system in you, and you’ll be flexible to change with the ever changing. Open yourself and flow, my friend. Flow in the total openness of the living moment. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Moving, be like water. Still, be like a mirror. Respond like an echo.
The timeless moment. – The “moment” has no yesterday or tomorrow. It is not the result of thought and therefore has no time.
“’What is’ is more important than ‘what should be.’ Too many people are looking at ‘what is’ from a position of thinking ‘what should be’.”
