Higher Thought

Maori Proverb

Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.

Traditional (Essential Sufism)

A donkey with a load of holy books is still a donkey.

Jiddu Krishnamurti

True understanding is possible only when we are fully conscious of our thought, not as an operative observer on this thought, but completely and without the intervention of a choice.

Joseph Campbell

"The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek."

Jiddu Krishnamurti

"But can you have technological knowledge, be able to do things, make a little money and still live in the world with intensity, with intensity, with clarity, with vision?"

N. Sri Ram "Thoughts for Aspirants"

"Wisdom is not a question of learning facts with the mind; it can only be acquired through perfection of living."

Richard Bach "Illusions"

"Imagine the universe beautiful and just and perfect. Then be sure of one thing: The Is has imagined it quite a bit better than you have. The original sin is to limit the Is."

Annie Besant

Not out of right practice comes right thinking, but out of right thinking comes right practice. It matters enormously what you think. If you think falsely, you will act mistakenly;  if you think basely, your conduct will suit your thinking.

Edgar Cayce "The Sleeping Prophet"

"Soul development should take precedence over all things."

Bhagavad Gita 18:20-22

Sattvic knowledge sees the one indestructible Being in all beings, the unity underlying the multiplicity of creation. Rajaistic knowledge sees all things and creatures as separate and distinct. Tamasic knowledge, lacking any sense of perspective, sees one small part and mistakes it for the whole.
