Ментално здравје е процес посветен на вистината и реалноста по секоја цена, колку и да се тешки.
Силата на една душа се мери според нејзината способност да страда.
Кога еднаш ќе сфатите дека се што се доживеале во животот ве води кон запознавање на светото и духовното, повеќе не можете да изгубите.
- Мајкл Скот Пек
“The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.” - Bertrand Russell
“What is love?"
"The total absence of fear," said the Master;
"What is it we fear?";
"Love," said the Master.”
- Anthony de Mello
“People don’t like love, they like that flittery flirty feeling. They don’t love love - love is sacrificial, love is ferocious, it’s not emotive. Our culture doesn’t love love, it loves the idea of love. It wants the emotion without paying anything for it. It's ridiculous" -
- Matt Chandler
“A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind. This one a long time have I watched. All his life has he looked away… to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was. Hmm? What he was doing. Hmph. Adventure. Heh. Excitement. Heh. A Jedi craves not these things.”
Никој не е задоволен со својата среќа, ниту незадоволен со својот разум. - Џон Голдсворти
“If what you seek is Truth, there is one thing you must have above all else.”
“I know. An overwhelming passion for it.”
“No. An unremitting readiness to admit you may be wrong.”
"Help us to find God."
"No one can help you there."
"For the same reason that no one can help the fish to find the ocean."
"Are we one with the God?"
"Not one, not two."
"The sun and its light, the ocean and the wave, the singer and his song — not one. Not two."
"You are only a disciple because your eyes are closed. The day you open them you will see there is nothing you can learn from me or anyone."
"What then is a Master for?"
"To make you see the uselessness of having one."
"Perfect love casts out fear."
―Anthony de Mello
“How is it possible that a being with such sensitive jewels as the eyes, such enchanted musical instruments as the ears, and such fabulous arabesque of nerves as the brain can experience itself anything less than a god.”
- Alan Watts
This is what Wisdom means: To be changed without the slightest effort on your part, to be transformed, believe it or not, merely by waking to the reality that is not words, that lies beyond the reach of words.
Spirituality means waking up. Most people, even though they don't know it, are asleep. They're born asleep, they live asleep, they marry in their sleep, they breed children in their sleep, they die in their sleep without ever waking up. They never understand the loveliness and the beauty of this thing that we call human existence. You know — all mystics — Catholic, Christian, non-Christian, no matter what their theology, no matter what their religion — are unanimous on one thing: that all is well, all is well. Though everything is a mess, all is well. Strange paradox, to be sure. But, tragically, most people never get to see that all is well because they are asleep. They are having a nightmare.
The genius of a composer is found in the notes of his music; but analyzing the notes will not reveal his genius. The poet's greatness is contained in his words; yet the study of his words will not disclose his inspiration. God reveals himself in creation; but scrutinize creation as minutely as you wish, you will not find God, any more than you will find the soul through careful examination of your body.
Wisdom tends to grow in proportion to one's awareness of one's ignorance.
When you come to see you are not as wise today as you thought you were yesterday, you are wiser today.
A writer arrived at the monastery to write a book about the Master.
"People say you are a genius. Are you?" he asked.
"You might say so." said the Master, none too modestly.
"And what makes one a genius?"
"The ability to recognize."
"The butterfly in a caterpillar: the eagle in an egg; the saint in a selfish human being."
- Anthony de Mello
Во зен будизмот постои извонредна духовна вежба наречена коан. Најчесто е тоа прашање кое учителот му го поставува на ученикот, прашање на кое нема рационален одговор. На пример:
"Како звучи аплаузот со една рака?" Или: "Каков облик си имал пред да се родиш?"
Ќе ви дадам еден коан како вежба. Запрашајте се: "Што ќе се случи ако се издвојам од сите свои негативни емоции, од сета душевна болка, од чувството на вина, од своето разочарување, од својата завист.., како никогаш да не биле дел од мене?
Дали знаете што може да се случи по ова прашање, по овој коан?
Може на површина да исплива стравот. Продолжете да си го поставувате себеси ова прашање. Може ќе дојдете до големо откритие.

“We must stop thinking about the individual and start thinking about what’s best for society” - Hillary Clinton
Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less. - Marie Curie
But I'll tell you what hermits realize. If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you'll come to understand that you're connected with everything.
Zen does not confuse spirituality with thinking about God while one is peeling potatoes. Zen spirituality is just to peel the potatoes.
- Alan Watts
