Life The truth is: you don’t have a life, you are life. ~Eckhart Tolle There is only life. There is nobody who lives a life. ~Nisargadatta Maharaj There is only life living itself, life seeing itself, life hearing itself, life meeting itself as each moment. ~Adyashanti We do not live life. Life lives us. ~Joko Beck There is only one meaning of life: the act of living itself. ~Erich Fromm The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves. ~Alan Watts To return to the root is to find the meaning. ~Seng-Ts’ang Higher, deeper, innermost, abides Another Life. ~Bhagavad-Gita It is only when we realize that life is taking us nowhere that it begins to have meaning. ~P. D. Ouspensky Life is the opportunity to remember who you are and express what you are. ~Steven Sadleir It is through life that one is to experience the spirit and communicate the spirit and live in the spirit. ~Joseph Campbell Life is a mystery, which means your thinking mind cannot make sense out of it. For that you’ve go to wake up and then you’ll suddenly realize that reality is not problematic, you are the problem. ~Anthony de Mello Life is not a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be lived. ~Thomas Merton Wisdom is knowing I am nothing, Love is knowing I am everything Between the two my life moves. ~Nisargadatta Maharaj Never forget that the life of this world is only a game and a passing delight, a show…the life of this world is nothing but a deception. ~Quran 20:57 Consciousness has produced this play. Consciousness has written the script. Consciousness is playing all the characters. And Consciousness is witnessing the play. It’s a one man show. ~Ramesh Balsekar I have begun to think of life as a series of ripples widening out from an original center. ~Seamus Heaney Life is a pure flame, and we live by an invisible sun within us. ~Sr. Thomas Browne A human being is an expression of life, bringing light, reflecting love across whatever dimension it chooses to touch, in whatever form it chooses to take. ~Richard Bach There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the infinite passion of life. ~Federico Fellini This is about life, not about us. ~Adyashanti Life isn’t as serious as the mind makes it out to be. ~Eckhart Tolle Life is playfulness, fun, because the whole existence is a tremendous circus. It is all fun–all the colors of the flowers, so many beautiful animals, birds, clouds, and for no purpose; they don’t serve any purpose. There is no goal to life. Life is a play unto itself. It is sheer abundance of energy, overflowing energy–existence goes on expanding. ~Osho Life is a verb. Life is not a noun, it is really “living” not “life.” It is not love, it is loving. It is not relationship, it is relating. It is not a song, it is singing. It is not a dance, it is dancing. See the difference, savor the difference. ~Osho Unless your life arises from your spontaneity, from your very empty heart, it is going to be just superficial. ~Osho We have buried so much of the delicate magic of life. ~D. H. Lawrence To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all. ~Oscar Wilde There is nothing more outstanding, more unusual than life. That makes life, any life, a miracle. So abundantly rare, it has got to be beautiful. ~John Kremer To be alive in this beautiful, self-organized universe–to participate in the dance of life with senses to perceive it, lungs that breathe it, organs that draw nourishment from it–is a wonder beyond words. ~Joanna Macy What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset. ~Crowfoot Whoever loves true life, will love true love. ~Elizabeth Barrett Browning Between the worlds life hovers like a star, twixt night and morn upon the horizon’s verge. ~Lord Byron Life is a wave, in which no two consecutive moments of its existence is composed of the same particles. ~John Tyndall To live is to be willing to die over and over again. ~Pema Chodron Every experience is a paradox in that it means to be absolute, and yet is relative; in that it somehow always goes beyond itself and yet never escapes itself. ~T. S. Eliot Life is like stepping onto a boat that is about to sail out to sea and sink. ~Shunryu Suzuki Beauty is life when life unveils her Holy face. ~Kahlil Gibran I leave no trace of wings in the air but I am glad I have had my flight. ~Rabindranath Tagore It doesn’t matter what’s happening…what matters is how you touch it. ~Nirmala Cease trying to work everything out with your minds, it will get you nowhere. Live by intuition and inspiration and let your whole life be a Revelation. ~Eileen Caddy As soon as the mind pulls out an agenda and decides what needs to change, that’s unreality. Life doesn’t need to decide who’s right and who’s wrong. Life doesn’t need to know the “right” way to go because it’s going there anyway. ~Adyashanti When we say something should or should not have happened, we’re arguing with what did happen or what is happening. When we argue with life, we lose every single time–and suffering wins. ~Adyashanti Life is not the way it’s supposed to be. It’s the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes a difference.~ Virginia Satir Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterward. ~Chinese proverb Between the banks of pain and pleasure the river of life flows. It is only when the mind refuses to flow with life, and gets stuck at the banks, that it becomes a problem. By flowing with life I mean acceptance– letting come what comes, and go what goes. ~Nisargadatta Maharaj Life can be really and truly simple if we don’t fight it. ~Ramesh Balsekar I create my own security by trusting the process of life. ~Louise L. Hay At the end of life you should be able to say, “Yes, the sun came, and the rain. I’ve been enriched by life’s experience. The harvest has been abundant.” ~Ashokananda Forget about your life situation and pay attention to your life. Your life situation exists in time. Your life is now. Your life situation is mind-stuff. Your life is real. ~Eckhart Tolle To say Yes to life is at one at the same time to say Yes to oneself. ~Dag Hammarskjold For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin–real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. ~Alfred D. Souza Life has beauty and a joy that transcends all the darkness that surrounds us, that something ineffable lives beyond the ordinary affairs of the day, and that without this mystery our lives would not be worth living. ~Kent Nerbern To live and let live, without clamor for distinction of recognition; to wait on divine Love; to write truth first on the tablet of one’s heart–this is the sanity and perfection of living. ~Mary Baker Eddy The spiritual process is not about moving away from life. It is to use everything in life not to entangle yourself but to liberate yourself. ~Jaggi Vasudev The path to your destination is not always a straight one. We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back. Maybe it doesn’t matter which road we embark on. Maybe what matters is that we embark. ~Barbara Hall Life is like an ever-shifting kaleidoscope–a slight change, and all patterns alter. ~Sharon Salzberg Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined. ~Deepak Chopra Life is a series of doors closing and opening. We walk from room to room having different experiences. It is all part of life, and we need to know that we really are safe. It is only change. ~Louisa L. Hay Each moment is the moment that needs to be happening. Each experience we have is the divine invitation. It may be a beautifully engraved invitation, or it may be a very fierce invitation, but each moment is the invitation. I couldn’t possibly emphasize this more: the texture and flow of our lives, from moment to moment, is itself what reveals freedom. Life itself shows us what we need to see through in order to be free. ~Adyashanti Mind guesses. Life knows. ~Dr. Vijai Shankar Life begins where fear ends. ~Osho
