The wind blows through the sky and flies over continents without settling anywhere. It traverses space and leaves no trace. Thus should thoughts pass through our minds, leaving no karmic residues and not altering our realization of fundamental simplicity.

He who wants to succeed should learn how to fight, to strive and to suffer. You can acquire a lot in life, if you are prepared to give up a lot to get it.

The sight of the Spirit eliminates desires, and the absence of desires shows the Light of Spirit to sight.

No state of mind can be more real than the mind itself. Is the mind real? It is but a collection of states, each of them transitory. How can a succession of transitory states be considered real? The illusion of being the body-mind is there only because it is not investigated. Non-investigation is the thread on which all the states of mind are strung. It is like darkness in a closed room. It is there - apparently. But when the room is opened, where does it go? It goes nowhere, because it was not there. All states of mind, all names and forms of existence are rooted in non-enquiry, non-investigation, in imagining and credulity. It is right to say "I am", but to say "I am this", "I am that" is a sign of not enquiring, not examining, of mental weakness or lethargy. Sadhana (practice) consists in reminding oneself forcibly of one's pure being-ness, of not being anything in particular, nor a sum of particulars, not even the totality of all particulars, which make up a universe. All exists in the mind, even the body is an integration in the mind of a vast number of sensory perceptions, each perception also a mental state. Think of yourself. Only don't bring the idea of a body into the picture. There is only a stream of sensations, perceptions, memories and ideations. The body is an abstraction, created by our tendency to seek unity in diversity.

Watch your mind, how it comes into being, how it operates. As you watch your mind, you discover your self as the watcher. When you stand motionless, only watching, you discover your Self as the light behind the watcher. The source of light is dark, unknown is the source of knowledge. That source alone is. Go back to that source and abide there.

In his article, "The Problem of Increasing Human Energy," published in 1900, Tesla stated:
For ages this idea [that each of us is only part of a whole] has been proclaimed in the consummately wise teachings of religion, probably not alone as a means of insuring peace and harmony among men, but as a deeply founded truth. The Buddhist expresses it in one way, the Christian in another, but both say the same: We are all one.

The measure of the moral worth of a man is his happiness. The better the man, the more happiness. Happiness is the synonym of well-being.

Zen is not “attained” by mirror-wiping mediation, but by “self-forgetfulness in the existential ‘present’ of life here and now.” We do not “come”, we “are.” Don’t strive to become, but be.

The “moment” has no yesterday or tomorrow. It is not the result of thought and therefore has no time.

One should pay attention to even the smallest of living creatures for these too may have a valuable lesson to teach us, and even the smallest ant may wish to communicate to people.

Only to the white man was nature a wilderness and only to him was the land ‘infested’ with ‘wild’ animals and ‘savage’ people. To us it was tame, Earth was bountiful and we were surrounded with the blessings of the Great Mystery.

You must believe you are important, know who you are. You are of great importance in the universe. You cannot be happy without this thought in mind. You are important to yourselves, others and Great Spirit. You are good and are not evil. You need to pray to do better for yourself, others and Great Spirit. Let no one say you are not good. You are all good, not evil. I know nothing of evil. I am not evil. You are not evil and will never be evil. Be not afraid of evil. It will never touch your life unless you believe in evil. You will live with Light when you live with Hope and Love. You are not evil, my friends. Do not ever think this is so, for you are all good people. No who is good can be evil. You are good forever. You must try to be better, even when you do not feel well or when things do not go well or when you are in the depths of despair. You are not alone. Pray for your own good as well as the good of others, your friends and your enemies. Help them to be good. This is Love, Life, Hope, Truth, and all you are living for.

Everything an Indian
does is in a circle, and
that is because the Power
of the World is in circles,
and everything tries to
be round … the sky is
round and I have heard
that the earth is round
like a ball and so are all
the stars. The wind, in its
power, whirls. Birds make
their nests in circles, for
theirs is the same religion
as ours. The sun
comes forth and goes
down again in a circle.
The moon does the same,
and both are round. Even
the seasons form a great
circle in their changing,
and always come back
again to where they
were. The life of man is
a circle from childhood
to childhood, and so it
is in everything where
power moves.

When a vision comes from the thunder beings of the west, it comes with terror like a thunder storm; but when the storm of vision has passed, the world is greenier and happier; for wherever the truth of vision comes upon the world, it is like a rain. The world, you see, is happier after the terror of the storm.

You have noticed that the truth comes into this world with two faces. One is sad with suffering, and the other laughs; but it is the same face, laughing or weeping. When people are already in despair, maybe the laughing face is better for them; and when they feel too good and are too sure of being safe, maybe the weeping face is better for them to see.

And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being.

Grown men can learn from very little children for the hearts of little children are pure. Therefore, the Great Spirit may show to them many things which older people miss.
