Russell BrandAll bad qualities centre round the ego. When the ego is gone, Realisation results by itself. There are neither good nor bad qualities in the Self. The Self is free from all qualities. Qualities pertain to the mind only.
Ramana MaharshiThe foolish man conceives the idea of ‘self.’ The wise man sees there is no ground on which to build the idea of ‘self;’ thus, he has a right conception of the world and well concludes that all compounds amassed by sorrow will be dissolved again, but the truth will remain.
Our brains have been designed to blur the line between self and other. It is an ancient neural circuitry that marks every mammal, from mouse to elephant.
Frans de Waal
Above all the grace and the gifts that Christ gives to his beloved is that of overcoming self.
Francis of Assisi
The path of Mastery is narrow. Many will not follow it and many will not recognize or be able to describe the destination.
Freedom breeds inequality
