What im reading now...
I have just started this book & it is life changing!!! I want to read it again as soon as I finish!!
Some Great quotes from this book;
"All we can perceive, experience, think about, is the surface layer of reality, less than the tip on an iceberg. Underneath the surface appearance, everything is not only connected with everything else, but also with the Source of all life out of which it came."
"When you don't cover up the world with words and labels, a sense of the miraculous returns to your life" -
"Accepting means you allow yourself to feel whatever it is you are feeling at that moment. It is part of the isness of the Now. You can't argue with what is. Well, you can, but if you do, you suffer.
"The quicker you are in attaching verbal or mental labels to things, people, or situations, the more shallow and lifeless your reality becomes, and the more deadened you become to reality"
"If peace is really what you want, then you will choose peace. If pace mattered to you more than anything else and if you truly knew yourself to be spirit rather than a little me, you would remain nonreactive and absolutely alert when confronted with challenging people or situations. You would immediately accept the situation and thus become one with it rather than separate yourself from it."
"If the thought of lack – whether it be money, recognition, or love – has become part of who you think you are, you will always experience lack. Rather than acknowledge the good that is already in your life, all you see is lack.
Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.
“All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness”
“whatever you fight, you strengthyen. What you resist, persists. "A New Earth":War is a mind set”
“The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.”
"You may not yet be able to bring your unconscious mind activity into awareness as thoughts, but it will always be reflected in the body as an emotion, and of this you can become aware."
"Where there is anger, there is always pain underneath."
"Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to "die before you die" — and find that there is no death."
We always create our reality according to our beliefs. If you want to know what your beliefs are, look at what you have in your life. Life always reflects our beliefs.
