Refleksion: Bevidsthed

Bevidsthed om valg i dagligdagen.

“For it is not continuous drinkings and revelings, nor the satisfaction of lusts, nor the enjoyment of fish and other luxuries of the wealthy table, which produce a pleasant life, but sober reasoning, searching out the motives for all choice and avoidance, and banishing of the mere opinions, to which are due the greatest disturbance of the spirit.”

Epicurus, “Letter to Menoecus”

“The unexamined life is not worth living.”

Quote by Socrates, “The apology” Plato

Bevidsthed og nærvær.

“As thoughts arise, destroying them utterly without any residue in the very place of their origin is non-attachment. Just as the pearl-diver ties a stone to his waist, sinks to the bottom of the sea and
there takes the pearls, so each one of us should be endowed with non-attachment, dive within oneself and obtain the Self-Pearl.”

Ramana Maharshi, 1902 “Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi’s teaching in Nan Yar”

“Under the tree the shade is pleasant; out in the open the heat is scorching. A person who has been going about in the sun feels cool when he reaches the shade. Someone who keeps on going from the shade into the sun and then back into the shade is a fool. A wise man stays permanently in the shade.”

Ramana Maharshi, 1902 “Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi’s teaching in Nan Yar”
