“Ego could be defined as whatever covers up basic goodness. From an experiential point of view, what is ego covering up? It's covering up our experience of just being here, just fully being where we are, so that we can relate with the immediacy of our experience. Egolessness is a state of mind that has complete confidence in the sacredness of the world. It is unconditional well being, unconditional joy that includes all the different qualities of our experience.”

"Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way."

The act of resisting something is the act of granting it life... the more you resist, the more you make it real? whatever it is you are resisting.”
Quote by Neale Donald Walsh (born September, 1943)

“People say that what we're all seeking is a meaning for life. I don't think that's what we're really seeking. I think that what we're seeking is an experience of being alive.”
