Concentration makes you one-pointed at a very great cost: ninety-nine per cent of life is discarded. If you are solving a mathematical problem, you cannot listen to the birds — they will be a distraction. Children playing around, dogs barking in the street — they will be a distraction. Because of concentration, people have tried to escape from life — to go to the Himalayas, to go to a cave, to remain isolated, so that you can concentrate on God. But God is not an object. God is this wholeness of existence, this moment; God is the totality. That’s why science will never be able to know God. The very method of science is concentration and because of that method, science can never know God. – Osho

Consciousness without thinking: that’s what awareness is. Being alert and with no thought. Try it! whenever you see thinking gathering, disperse it! pull yourself out of it! Look at the trees with no screens of thinking between you and the trees. Listen to the chirping of the birds with no chirping of the mind inside. Look at the sun rising and feel that inside you also a sun of consciousness is rising… but don’t think about it, don’t assert, don’t state, don’t say. Simply be. And, by and by, you will start feeling glimpses of awareness, sudden glimpses of awareness — as if a fresh breeze has entered into your room which was getting stale and dead; as if a ray of light has entered into the dark night of your soul; as if, suddenly, life has called you back. – Osho

Somebody praises and appreciates you – listen with alertness. And then nobody can persuade you to do foolish things. Nobody can bribe you; flattery becomes impossible. You will smile at the whole nonsense. – Osho

I don’t have any choice any more. I am in a choiceless awareness. I don’t have to be aware. I am simply aware. Now it is just like my heartbeat or like my breathing. Even if I try not to be aware, it is not possible; the very effort will make me more aware. Awareness is not a quality, a characteristic; it is your whole being. When you become aware, there is no choice left to be otherwise. – Osho

I feel like the thing we can do is celebrate people doing great work and create more cultural momentum and awareness that this is an important thing in the world. So when the next economic crisis hits and people are talking about where to cut from the budget, science isn’t the thing. – Mark Zuckerberg

I give it to The Based God who really informs me and gives me that gut instinct and the power to say who’s cursed or not. It just comes from a pure place, just trying to bring peace and positivity and love and also awareness. – Lil B

I have an ambivalent relationship with Margaret Thatcher. She came to power in May 1979 – a month before my 11th birthday. I was far too young to have developed a great deal of political awareness. I remember it, though – my mother excited at the dinner table because Britain had its first female prime minister. – Sara Sheridan

I have an awareness of a spiritual realm, and I see signs that I feel speak to me – I don’t know if that falls into superstition. – Ken Leung

I have been extremely pleased to support the Trust’s work in the Lupus Unit ever since. Personal experience also motivated me to become involved to help raise the awareness of the disease and hopefully thereby improve the speed of diagnosis. – Elaine Paige

I have charity work that I do. I started my own charity, the Friends of the Prostate, and I’m also working on awareness of the deviated septum. I do this because not many people are interested in it. There’s also Save the Funnel-web – they’re dying out. – Barry Humphries

I have everything I need to enjoy my here and now – unless I am letting my consciousness be dominated by demands and expectations based on the dead past or the imagined future. – Ken Keyes Jr.

I have more awareness of other people and, I hope, more sensitivity to their needs. I also find that I’m more direct and outspoken. – Christopher Reeve

I have two children who are daughters, so female issues have always registered high on my scale of awareness. – James Rebhorn

I knew ‘Transparent’ and saw a few episodes of ‘Orange is the New Black,’ so I knew about the trans actor in that cast. Of course, I saw ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ back in the day. But the path that led me to this subject was different… it’s just my curiosity as a human being more than my awareness of any political struggles. – Sebastian Lelio

I knew from the beginning that privacy was going to be a huge issue, especially with regard to applying Total Information Awareness in counterterrorism. Because if the technology development was successful, a logical place to apply it was inside the United States. – John Poindexter

I knew who I was this morning but I’ve changed a few times since then. – Lewis Carroll

I know girlfriends of mine who, when they were approaching pregnancy and starting a family, consistently went through a period right beforehand that was a last gasp kind of thing where they just wreak havoc.

I lived for nearly seven years with the awareness that death was my everyday companion. – Ingrid Betancourt

I love math and science, and also, my mom is a doctor. I grew up not even having an awareness that women were not supposed to be good at science. – Megan Amram

I think growing up, the assimilation of most cultural conventions typically encouraged by a heightened awareness of gender and sex encourages a sort of separation of the self. What’s so special about ‘Hanna’ is that her upbringing has negated this indoctrination; she’s almost absolved of the pressures of gender or gender itself. – Esme Creed-Miles

I think I had more freedom when I began making films. I did not know what could not be done. I was naive. I did what I wanted to. As you gain awareness, you start losing freedom. – Anurag Kashyap

I think I have just always had an awareness that when you go to a premiere and people start cheering and shouting your name and stuff, they are shouting at a perception of you that they have. – Daniel Radcliffe

I think people from Northern Ireland have some kind of unspoken general feeling of what it is to be around segregation. You have an awareness of it because you know how much grief it’s caused. – Jamie Dornan

Clearly, it has resonated with viewers for a variety of reasons, and I’m attached to it. – Chris Hansen

I think the attraction to Israeli women stems from the fact that we’re exotic and the fact that there are many talented and beautiful women in Israel. I think that there is also greater awareness of Israel than before in the movie industry. – Paly

I think the earlier stages of Alzheimer’s are the hardest. Particularly because the person knows that they are losing awareness. They’re aware that they’re losing awareness, and you see them struggling. – Patti Davis

I think the greatest thing about partnering with the Arthritis Foundation is the fact that we’re raising awareness.

Do you have arthritis?’ And she said, ‘Yes, I have knee pain, joint pain and in my hands… I have arthritis.’ – Camille Kostek

I think the reason Buddhism and Western psychology are so compatible is that Western psychology helps to identify the stories and the patterns in our personal lives, but what Buddhist awareness training does is it actually allows the person to develop skills to stay in what’s going on. – Tara Brach

I think there’s something quite interesting about the almost tragic quality of a lot of overwrought prose, because it has a much more self-conscious awareness of its own failure to touch the real. – China Mieville

I think what is British about me is my feelings and awareness of others and their situations.

I think what you call ‘metropolitan America’ – as in San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles – I think there’s more awareness of the atypical, while in more traditional Britain, there’s the kitchen-sink dramas and thrillers. It’s more formulaic. – Irvine Welsh

I think when you deny a part of yourself for so long and rediscover it, there is a release of feeling and a deeper awareness, a newfound energy. – Rekha Sharma

I want to do more to create more awareness so that the people in our communities aren’t just thinking that you just got to be a basketball player or a rapper, because that’s what I thought. – Chamillionaire

I want to see children curled up with books, finding an awareness of themselves as they discover other people’s thoughts.

I’d like my books to provide that connection for them. – Patricia Reilly Giff

I wanted to help raise awareness, so I created an environmental foundation called Just Within Reach. – Kevin Richardson

I will be guided by the Christian ethic and an awareness that human action is by nature transient. – Horst Kohler

I won’t say I’ve never felt in Alex Salmond’s shadow, but latterly, when Alex was leader, I didn’t. It’s more about my awareness of the fact I became First Minister during a parliamentary term. That means you’re First Minister, but you haven’t been elected in your own right as First Minister. – Nicola Sturgeon

I work to raise awareness of the dangers of drinking and driving and substance abuse, primarily with youth. – Morgan Ortagus

I’m a huge breast cancer awareness advocate because my mom went through breast cancer recently. It really brought our family closer. – Brenda Song

I’m active in PAX, which is a gun awareness organization. We treat gun safety as a public health issue. – Mandy Patinkin

I’m addicted to the heightened awareness I get when there’s a death consequence. My vision is sharper, and I’m more sensitive to sounds, my sense of balance and the beauty all around me.

I’m an ambassador for World of Children and St Jude’s, it always been very important for me to use modeling as a platform to give back or raise awareness for causes that are important. – Lily Aldridge

I’m challenging everybody on every side of every divide to be more who they are, to cultivate their capacity for awareness. – Jon Kabat-Zinn

I’m excited to create more awareness about the importance of giving the youth of America a choice. There’s a 24-hour music channel. There’s a 24-hour comedy channel.

I’m firmly convinced that true beauty only springs from the acceptance of oneself, from an awareness of who we really are. – Peter Lindbergh

I’m fulfilled in what I do… I never thought that a lot of money or fine clothes – the finer things in life – would make you happy. My concept of happiness is to be filled in a spiritual sense. – Coretta Scott King

I, for one, refuse to box without headgear as an amateur. With the rising awareness of concussions and head injury, it is becoming more evident that we need to protect our brains as much as possible.

If there is a state where the soul can find a resting-place secure enough to establish itself and concentrate its entire being there, with no need to remember the past or reach into the future, where time is nothing to it, where the present runs on indefinitely but this duration goes unnoticed, with no sign of the passing of time, and no other feeling of deprivation or enjoyment, pleasure or pain, desire or fear than the simple feeling of existence, a feeling that fills our soul entirely, as long as this state lasts, we can call ourselves happy, not with a poor, incomplete and relative happiness such as we find in the pleasures of life, but with a sufficient, complete and perfect happiness which leaves no emptiness to be filled in the soul. – Jean-Jacques Rousseau

If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath. – Amit Ray

If you want to remain totally free, then don’t choose. That’s where the teaching of choiceless awareness comes in. Why the insistence of the great masters just to be aware and not to choose? Because the moment you choose, you have lost your total freedom, you are left with only a part. But if you remain choiceless, your freedom remains total. So there is only one thing which is totally free and that is choiceless awareness. Everything else is limited. – Osho

If you’re a Texas Supreme Court Justice hopscotching across 254 counties, trying to tattoo your name onto the noggins of millions of voters, you must find creative ways to raise visibility and build awareness.

If your awareness was strong enough, you could change the fate of a whole world without ever leaving your room. – Frederick Lenz

In Arkansas alone, approximately three quarters of a million people are at risk of going hungry, and one in four children does not get enough to eat, so my goal is to bring awareness to this tragic issue. – Blanche Lincoln

In awareness there is no becoming, there is no end to be gained. There is silent observation without choice and condemnation, from which there comes understanding. In this process when thought and feeling unfold themselves, which is only possible when there is neither acquisition nor acceptance, then there comes an extensional awareness, all the hidden layers and their significance are revealed. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

In college, I was always disappointed by lectures that covered social problems but failed to identify what I could do to change them. Part of the problem was that many professors simply didn’t believe they had a role in converting awareness to action. – Ben Rattray

In fact, I heard Bird first, and had got well into listening to him. You know, it’s the kind of accidental thing that awareness of a player is: what’s available, what somebody happens to play for you. – Gerry Mulligan

In hunting ideas for books, I look for stories about long-past events that once commanded the world’s attention but that, for one reason or another, faded from contemporary awareness. – Erik Larson

In politics nothing matters very much, and few things matter at all. – Arthur Balfour

In pure awareness the mind cannot drag you down into the mud, into the gutter. In anger, in hatred, in jealousy, the mind is absolutely impotent in the face of awareness. And because the mind is absolutely impotent, your whole being is in a profound silence – the peace that passeth understanding. – Osho

In September of 2015, I did the unthinkable: I used my second-ever runway show to bring awareness to the Black Lives Matter movement. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do professionally. It was lonely. – Kerby Jean-Raymond

In the beginning, these will be just rare moments, few and far in between. But they will give you glimpses of what samadhi is. Small pools of silence — they will come and they will disappear. But now you know that you are on the right track — you start watching again. When a thought passes, you watch it; when an interval passes, you watch it. Clouds are also beautiful; sunshine also is beautiful. Now you are not a chooser. Now you don’t have a fixed mind: you don’t say, ‘I would like only the intervals.’ That is stupid — because once you become attached to wanting only the intervals, you have decided again against thinking. And then those intervals will disappear. They happen only when you are very distant, aloof. They happen, they cannot be brought. They happen, you cannot force them to happen. They are spontaneous happenings. Go on watching. Let thoughts come and go — wherever they want to go. Nothing is wrong! Don’t try to manipulate and don’t try to direct. Let thoughts move in total freedom. And then bigger intervals will be coming. You will be blessed with small satoris. Sometimes minutes will pass and no thought will be there; there will be no traffic — a total silence, undisturbed. – Osho

Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life. – Buddha

Just by being aware, thoughts start disappearing. There is no need to fight. Your awareness is enough to destroy them. And when the mind is empty, the temple is ready.

And if these three words are no more words to you but become experiences, your life will be transformed. – Osho

Life is a culmination of the past, an awareness of the present, an indication of a future beyond knowledge, the quality that gives a touch of divinity to matter. – Charles Lindbergh

Life offers its wisdom generously. Everything teaches. Not everyone learns. Life asks of us the same thing we have been asked in every class: “Stay awake.” “Pay attention.” But paying attention is no simple matter. It requires us not to be distracted by expectations, past experiences, labels, and masks. It asks that we not jump to early conclusions and that we remain open to surprise. – Rachel Naomi Remen

Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. – Eckhart Tolle

Listen. Watch. Be aware. And by and by a different quality of being arises in you which is neither the body nor the feelings nor the thoughts. A different pillar of flame starts gathering within you and becomes more and more crystallized. As this awareness becomes crystallized, for the first time you will feel more and more that you are — the feeling of being. And then moods will become more and more irrelevant. They will come and go, but you will remain unperturbed. The climate will change around you, but you will remain unchanged. Whatsoever happens on the outside will not in any way change you within. The within remains absolutely pure and uncorrupted. – Osho

The burst of well-being you feel when you fall in love is due to the fact that you unconsciously open the channels of awareness that allow more Prana [Life Force] to flow. – Deepak Chopra

Meditation quiets conscious thought and the physical realm, making a doorway to spiritual awareness. – Jenna Alatari

Meditation, witnessing, silently sitting and looking at the mind, will be of much help. Not forcing, simply sitting and looking. Not doing much, just watching as one watches birds flying in the sky. Just Lying down on the ground and watching, nothing to do, indifferent. Not your concern really, where they are going; they are going on their own. – Osho

Mellowed by tones that calm the air / Shelters my nerves from awareness’s lair / So comfortable with this ill-informed bliss / Close off reality with ignorance’s kiss. – Spike the Media

Mind can never be intelligent – only no-mind is intelligent. Only no-mind is original and radical. Only no-mind is revolutionary – revolution in action. The mind gives you a sort of stupor. Burdened by the memories of the past, burdened by the projections of the future, you go on living – at the minimum. You dont live at the maximum. Your flame remains very dim. Once you start dropping thoughts, the dust that you have collected in the past, the flame arises – clean, clear, alive, young. Your whole life becomes a flame, and a flame without any smoke. That is what awareness is. – Osho

Mindfulness – moment to moment non-judgemental attention and awareness. – Richard Davidson

Movies don’t look hard, but figuring it out, getting the shape of it, getting everybody’s character right and having it be funny, make sense and be romantic, it’s creating a puzzle. Yes, having been a writer for so long, I have an awareness of when things are going awry, but it doesn’t mean I know how to fix them. – Nancy Meyers

Movies don’t sit in the theaters for an entire summer like they did in 1982. Now you’ve got a two- or three-week shelf life so you need to have that awareness right off the bat.

My father started growing very quiet as Alzheimer’s started claiming more of him. The early stages of Alzheimer’s are the hardest because that person is aware that they’re losing awareness. And I think that that’s why my father started growing more and more quiet. I think he felt, ‘I don’t want to say something wrong.’ That’s my sense of it. – Patti Davis

My favorite food was seafood, and that’s all I used to eat. And then there I was, 27 years old, and bam, I have this allergic reaction – and it’s life-threatening. So it’s very important to spread the word and spread awareness so people can be better prepared in case anaphylaxis occurs in their life. – Adrian Peterson

My goal is people associate November with COPD awareness month as much as they notice October with breast cancer and pink. That’d be a great thing if it happened. The fact that COPD kills more people than breast cancer and diabetes put together should raise some red flags. – Danica Patrick

My mind is my biggest asset. – Tiger Woods

My mom told us that we should have good shoes, a good suit, and a watch, so I was running around at age 10 looking like a little old man. But somehow I grew to understand that a watch is a representation of myself, of my culture, taste, awareness and aesthetic. – Aldis Hodge

My mom was an environmental activist in Australia in the late ’60s and ’70s, and I guess I’ve inherited that awareness from her. – Robin McLeavy

My mother persevered through much adversity because she possessed faith in God, self-respect, and an awareness of history; most especially, she was astute in Africa’s significant contribution to world history. Sister Betty refused to live her life as a victim. – Ilyasah Shabazz

My work is about the behaviors that we all engage in unconsciously on a collective level. And what I mean by that, it’s the behaviors that we’re in denial about and the ones that operate below the surface of our daily awareness. And as individuals, we all do these things, all the time, every day. – Chris Jordan

My world view is that it can all go to hell in an instant, and you have to be ready for it. That’s pretty much the central theme running through my work. It’s about people’s awareness of how uncertain life can be and their trying to guard against that. – David Morrell

National Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention Month is celebrated each May, and becomes a chance for our Nation to become more familiar with the effects of this disease, and about the preventable steps that we can take to deal with it. – Lois Capps

Normally we empower our demons by believing they are real and strong in themselves and have the power to destroy us. As we fight against them, they get stronger. But when we acknowledge them by discovering what they really need, and nurture them, our demons release their hold, and we find that they actually do not have power over us. By nurturing the shadow elements of our being with infinite generosity, we can access the state of luminous awareness and undermine ego. By feeding the demons, we resolve conflict and duality, finding our way to unity. – Tsultrim Allione

Of one thing I am certain, the body is not the measure of healing, peace is the measure. – Phyllis McGinley

Often in normal life I’m just constricted to what I see, maybe, and hear.

Remember, whenever you have two things, two alternatives, choose the new one, choose the harder, choose the one in which more awareness will be needed. At the cost of efficiency always choose awareness, and you will create the situation in which meditation will become possible. These are all just situations. Meditation will happen. I am not saying that just by doing them you will get to meditation — but they will be helpful. They will create the necessary situation in you without which meditation cannot happen. Be less efficient but more creative. Let that be the motive. Don’t be bothered too much about utilitarian ends. Rather, constantly remember that you are not here in life to become a commodity; you are not here to become an utility, that is below dignity; you are not here just to become more and more efficient — you are here to become more and more alive; you are here to become more and more intelligent; you are here to become more and more happy, ecstatically happy. But that is totally different from the ways of the mind. – Osho

Right after undergrad, I started doing low-level work on health issues in sub-Saharan Africa, and what struck me was the disconnect between how people in New York would speak about some of the issues people were facing.

Somehow our devils are never quite what we expect when we meet them face to face. – Nelson DeMille

Sometimes during the day, I consciously focus on some ordinary object and allow myself a momentary “paying-attention.” This paying-attention gives meaning to my life.

Call it taste of Zen, or Tao, or Yoga. In those small intervals, suddenly the sky is clear and the sun is shining. Suddenly the world is full of mystery because all barriers are dropped.

The person who follows the path of awareness finds love as a consequence of his awareness, as a by-product, as a shadow. And the person who follows the path of love finds awareness as a consequence, as a by-product, as a shadow of love. They are two sides of the same coin. And remember: if your awareness lacks love then it is still impure; it has not yet known one hundred percent purity. It is not yet REALLY awareness: it must be mixed with unawareness.

It must be something lower, something closer to lust than to prayer. – Osho

The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it. – Thich Nhat Hanh

To show that a comedian on stage in India talking about sanitation or in South Africa talking about HIV and AIDS awareness, if you follow the joke into their lives, you can see that, like, oh, these things aren’t just contrived in joke books.

Unless one is able to live fully in the present, the future is a hoax. There is no point whatever in making plans for a future which you will never be able to enjoy. When your plans mature, you will still be living for some other future beyond.

We like to think, in our anthropocentric way, that irony means that you transcended something, but actually, what it means is that you’ve realised that you’re stuck in something, and you have this kind of uncanny awareness of that, and there’s not much you can do about that feeling of stuckness. – Timothy Morton

When I initially told a friend that I was going to donate part of my liver to my sister, he exploded and said, ‘What? You can’t do that!

Most people don’t know that this is possible, so it’s been a fantastic thing to help raise public awareness. – Ed Henry

You are a little band of awareness and your awareness moves from one state of mind to another. – Frederick Lenz

It feels more and more natural, and quicker and quicker. – Christian Eriksen

Awareness Quotes From Wikiquote

    • Nikolai Berdyaev, in “Political Testament”, as translated by E. Lampert, in World Review (March 1949)

He understands mind affected by hate as mind affected by hate, and mind unaffected by hate as mind unaffected by hate. He understands mind affected by delusion as mind affected by delusion, and mind unaffected by delusion as mind unaffected by delusion. He understands contracted mind as contracted mind, and distracted mind as distracted mind. He understands exalted mind as exalted mind, and unexalted mind as unexalted mind.

    • Gautama Buddha, Majjhima Nikaya, Sutta 10, Verse 34
  • To become different from what we are, we must have some awareness of what we are.
    • Eric Hoffer, in The Passionate State of Mind, and Other Aphorisms (1955) Aphorism 151, p. 93
  • They who lack talent expect things to happen without effort. They ascribe failure to a lack of inspiration or ability, or to misfortune, rather than to insufficient application. At the core of every true talent there is an awareness of the difficulties inherent in any achievement, and the confidence that by persistence and patience something worthwhile will be realized. Thus talent is a species of vigor.
    • Eric Hoffer, in Reflections on the Human Condition (1973), p. 49
  • Every individual is at once the beneficiary and the victim of the linguistic tradition into which he has been born — the beneficiary inasmuch as language gives access to the accumulated records of other people’s experience, the victim in so far as it confirms him in the belief that reduced awareness is the only awareness and as it bedevils his sense of reality, so that he is all too apt to take his concepts for data, his words for actual things.
    • Aldous Huxley, in The Doors of Perception (1954)
  • If you want to be well off and yet easily manage to become something, then forget God, never let yourself really become aware, never let it become really clear to you that it is he who has created you from nothing; proceed on the presupposition that a human being does not have time to waste on keeping in mind the one to whom he infinitely and unconditionally owes everything. … Forget it and be noisy along with the crowd, laugh or cry, be busy from morning until night, be loved and respected and esteemed as a friend, as a public official, as a king, as a pallbearer. Above all be an earnest person by having forgotten the one and only earnestness, to relate yourself to God, to become nothing.
    • Søren Kierkegaard, Works of Love (1847), as translated by Howard V. Hong and Edna H. Hong (1995), p. 103
  • The objection I have repeatedly made privately against those who ordinarily proclaim Christianity in Christendom is that they, themselves surrounded and safeguarded by all too many illusions, do not have the courage to make people aware. They are eager to win adherents, but they want to win them – because this strengthens their cause – and therefore are not scrupulously careful about whether they in truth become adherents or not. This in turn means that in a deeper sense they have no cause; they related themselves selfishly to the cause they do have. Therefore they do not actually risk going out among the people or abandoning illusions in order to make a genuine idea-impression, because they have a dim nothing that it is truly a dangerous matter to make people aware.
    • The Point of View On My Work As An Author by Soren Kierkegaard (finished 1848) published by Peter Christian Kierkegaard 1859 translated by Howard and Edna Hong 1998 Princeton University Press P. 51
  • The conscious mind allows itself to be trained like a parrot, but the unconscious does not — which is why St. Augustine thanked God for not making him responsible for his dreams.
    • Carl Jung, Psychology and Alchemy (1952)
  • Genius is not so much a light as it is a constant awareness of the surrounding gloom.
    • Stanisław Lem, in His Master’s Voice (1968) as translated by Michael Kandel (1983)
  • What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.
    • Abraham Maslow, as quoted in Life in the Open Sea‎ (1972) by William M. Stephens, p. 21
  • The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the interdependence of all these living beings, which are all part of one another, and all involved in one another.
    • Thomas Merton, in his final address, during a conference on East-West monastic dialogue, delivered just two hours before his death (10 December 1968), quoted in Religious Education, Vol. 73 (1978), p. 292
  • This peculiar type of mental state is sometimes called a “Mystical Experience” or “Rapture,” “Ecstasy,” or “Bliss.” Some who undergo it call it “wonderful,” but a better word would be “wonderless,” because I suspect that such a state of mind may result from turning so many [inner] Critics off that one cannot find any flaws in it. …such experiences can be dangerous — for some victims find them so compelling that they devote the rest of their lives to trying to get themselves back to that state again.
    • Marvin Minsky, The Emotion Machine (2006)
  • I often say to my students, when they first come and they begin to feel the infiniteness, the joy and the deep peace, and they feel very happy, I say to them, Don’t just joy ride. Be quiet. Be one with this. Know that this is beyond belief. This is direct experience. But because this is taking place in you, a storm is coming. And this storm is the storm of ego! The storm of ego is going to come to crush what you have discovered, to bring fear in you, to make you feel that you are making a mistake, to bring in states of confusion. And some of you may give in to that and run away, and feel, ‘No, I must not do this anymore!’ But I want to encourage you. This exercise, this ‘meditation’, you may call it, comes from the very core of your Self. It comes from the God-place in you. And this tendency to run comes from the negativity, the toxicity that we have picked up in life. That is going to come up as though it wants to ruin your Garden of Eden inside your heart. I am telling you ahead of time that all beings who awakened to their true nature experienced these types of resistance, this type of aggression from the mind.
    • Mooji, quoted in Guided Meditation with Mooji, MariSandra Lizzi, Medium, (12 Apr 2020)
  • Humor is perhaps a sense of intellectual perspective: an awareness that some things are really important, others not; and that the two kinds are most oddly jumbled in everyday affairs.
    • Christopher Morley, as quoted in An Enchanted Life : An Adept’s Guide to Masterful Magick‎ (2001) by Patricia Telesco, p. 189
  • Praying without ceasing is not ritualized, nor are there even words. It is a constant state of awareness of oneness with God; it is a sincere seeking for a good thing; and it is a concentration on the thing sought, with faith that it is obtainable.
    • Peace Pilgrim, in Peace Pilgrim : Her Life and Work in Her Own Words‎ (1994), p. 75
  • The great awareness comes slowly, piece by piece. The path of spiritual growth is a path of lifelong learning. The experience of spiritual power is basically a joyful one.
    • M. Scott Peck, as quoted in The Enlightened Savage : Using Primal Instincts for Personal & Business Success (2006) by Anthony Hernandez, p. 147
  • Not so much, so much be lost, just
    To see the hue, grace, glory gone
    Off the face of my beloved
    As I’d wake and be conscious.

    • Suman Pokhrel, Entanglements
  • Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.
    • Emily Post, as quoted in Reader’s Digest v. 68 (1956)
  • Let’s not look back in anger or forward in fear, but around in awareness.
    • James Thurber, in the foreword to Lanterns & Lances (1961)
  • When you become conscious of Being, what is really happening is that Being becomes conscious of itself. When Being becomes conscious of itself – that’s presence. Since Being, consciousness, and life are synonymous, we could say that presence means consciousness becoming conscious of itself, or life attaining self-consciousness. But don’t get attached to the words, and don’t make an effort to understand this. There is nothing that you need to understand before you can become present. Ch. 5
    • Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now (1997)
  • Consciousness takes on the disguise of forms until they reach such complexity that it completely loses itself in them. In present-day humans, consciousness is completely identified with its disguise. It only knows itself as form and therefore lives in fear of the annihilation of its physical or psychological form. This is the egoic mind, and this is where considerable dysfunction sets in. Ch. 5
    • Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now (1997)
  • Humans have been in the grip of pain for eons, ever since they fell from the state of grace, entered the realm of time and mind, and lost awareness of Being. At that point, they started to perceive themselves as meaningless fragments in an alien universe, unconnected to the Source and to each other. Pain is inevitable as long as you are identified with your mind, which is to say as long as you are unconscious, spiritually speaking.
    • Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now (1997)
  • With the awareness comes transformation and freedom… I am not my thoughts, emotions, sense perceptions, and experiences. I am not the content of my life. I am Life. I am the space in which all things happen. I am consciousness… When you look at a tree, you are aware of the tree… The truth is you are not somebody who is aware of the tree, the thought, feeling or experience. You are the awareness or consciousness in and by which those things appear. As you go about your life, can you be aware of yourself as the awareness in which the entire content of your life unfolds?
    • Eckhart Tolle, Stillness Speaks (2003)
  • By knowing yourself as the awareness in which phenomenal existence happens, you become free of dependency on phenomena and free of self seeking in situations, places, and conditions. In other words, what happens or doesn’t happen is not that important anymore. Things lose their heaviness, their seriousness. A playfulness comes into your life. You recognize this world as a cosmic dance, the dance of form.
    • Eckhart Tolle, Stillness Speaks (2003)
  • Awareness is the greatest agent for change.
    • Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth (2005)
  • If you ask me what I want to achieve, it’s to create an awareness, which is already the beginning of teaching.
    • Elie Wiesel, in a 1978 interview with John S. Friedman, published in The Paris Review 26 (Spring 1984); and in Elie Wiesel : Conversations (2002) edited by Robert Franciosi, p. 85
