1. Surrendering Judgment: One of the most important spiritual practices is to let things be as they are without interpretation, without embellishment, without judgment. That immediately gives the ego a coronary. Imagine telling the ego it cannot judge, compare, interpret?  What then is it going to do? It doesn’t really know how to do anything else.  As soon as we try to tell the ego not to judge a whole new layer of judgment comes up. But that’s why the process is so rich.  ~ Paul Ferrini

2. “When you revere a spiritual teacher, it’s yourself that you’re revering, because you can’t project anything but yourself… It’s a fine thing to love Jesus (or Buddha), but until you can love the monster, the terrorist, the child molester, until you can meet your worst enemy without defense or justification, your reverence for Jesus (or Buddha) isn’t real, because each of these is just another of his forms. That’s how you know when you are truly revering your spiritual teacher; when your reverence goes across the board. We think that because Jesus and the Buddha wore robes and owned nothing, that’s how freedom is supposed to look. But can you live a normal life and be free? Can you do it from here, right now? That’s what I want for you. We have the same desire: your freedom. And I love that you’re attached to material objects, whether you have them or not, so that you can come to realize that all suffering comes from the mind, not the world.’ – Byron Katie

3. Come, come, whoever you are! Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. Ours is not a caravan of despair. It doesn’t matter if you’ve broken your vows a thousand times, still come. And yet again, come. ~ Rumi

4. The Greatest Healing would be to wake up from what we are NOT. ~  Mooji

5. Peace is the state where love abides, and seeks to share itself. – ACIM
