“The sacred radiance of our original nature never darkens.
It has shined forth since beginningless time.
Do you wish to enter the gate that leads to this?
Simply do not give rise to conceptual thinking.”
Zen Master So Sahn (1520–1604)
"This is the real secret of life -
to be completely engaged
with what you are doing in the here and now.
And instead of calling it work, realize it is play."
Alan W. Watts
"If we - you and I - are to further the evolution of humankind, and not just reap the benefit of past humanity’s struggles, if we are to contribute to evolution and not merely siphon it off, if we are to help the overcoming of our self-alienation from Spirit and not merely perpetuate it, then meditation - or a similar and truly contemplative practice - becomes an absolute ethical imperative, a new categorical imperative.” Ken Wilber
