Life is not a problem to be solved, nor a question to be answered. Life is a mystery to be experienced.
If you succeed in cheating someone, don’t think that person is a fool. Realize that the person trusted you more than you deserved.
Creation which cannot express itself becomes madness.
Surrender, know that nothing is designed to hurt you.
There’s nothing wrong with what you’re going through.
It’s very real, and it brings you closer to the truth.
The most heartbreaking thing of all is how we cheat ourselves of the present moment.
Zen is not some special state, it is our normal condition, silent, peaceful, awake, without agitation.
The world is not what you think it is;
the world becomes exactly what you think it is.
Such is the power of belief.
We do not heal the past by dwelling there; we heal the past by living fully in the present.
Being both soft and strong is a combination very few have mastered.
