Inspirations – My gift to you

“The Self alone can give you happiness. All happiness is from the Self. All trouble, sorrow and suffering is from the mind.”  ~ Papaji Poonjaji 17 July, 1992

“This moment is as it is because it cannot be otherwise.”

~ Eckhardt Tolle, A New Earth

“Confusion is when you argue with what is.”

~ Byron Katie

“Your own Self-Realization is the greatest service you can render the world.”  ~ Ramana Maharshi


“Give up the notion that ‘I am so and so’. All that is required to realize the Self is to be still. What can be easier than that?”  ~ Ramana Maharshi


“Happiness is your nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside.”  ~ Ramana Maharshi

“When something uncomfortable or inconvenient is happening, we want to get out of the situation/feeling. Of course. But how can we get out of the situation if we do not really know what the situation really is from which we are trying to get out? And how can we really know what the situation really is if we keep escaping from experiencing the depth of the situation? The only way to experience the situation totally, is to be totally in it – so we can experience the experience – totally. “

~ Paul Lowe
