Autobiografia de um Iogue



Read a little. Meditate more. Think of God all the time.

Live quietly in the moment and see the beauty of all before you. The future will take care of itself

Be as simple as you can be; you will be astonished to see how uncomplicated and happy your life can become

You may control a mad elephant; You may shut the mouth of the bear and the tiger; Ride the lion and play with the cobra; By alchemy you may learn your livelihood; You may wander through the universe incognito; Make vassals of the gods; be ever youthful; You may walk in water and live in fire; But control of the mind is better and more difficult.

You have come to earth to entertain and to be entertained.

Be afraid of nothing. Hating none, giving love to all, feeling the love of God, seeing His presence in everyone, and having but one desire - for His constant presence in the temple of your consciousness - that is the way to live in this world.

The power of unfulfilled desires is the root of all man's slavery

Self-realization is the knowing in all parts of body, mind, and soul that you are now in possession of the kingdom of God; that you do not have to pray that it come to you; that God’s omnipresence is your omnipresence; and that all that you need to do is improve your knowing

You do not have to struggle to reach God, but you do have to struggle to tear away the self-created veil that hides him from you

Retire to the center of your being, which is calmness.

No action is ever an isolated event. Always, it invites from the universe a reaction that corresponds exactly to the type and the force of energy behind the deed.

The sun shines equally on diamond and charcoal, but the former has developed qualities that enable it to reflect the sunlight brilliantly, while the latter is unable to reflect the sunlight.  Emulate the diamond in your dealings with people.  Brightly reflect the light of God's love.

You naturally love those who are dear to you, and you must learn to give that kind of love to the whole world.


O Profeta




Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit. 

Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity. 

A friend who is far away is sometimes much nearer than one who is at hand. Is not the mountain far more awe-inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing through the valley than to those who inhabit the mountain? 

Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.

And ever has it been known that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.

But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. 

I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.

In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.

If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. And if they don't, they never were. 


A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.

The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.

Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.

Faith is a knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof.

Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children. 

All that spirits desire, spirits attain. 

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. 



Siddhartha




“I have always thirsted for knowledge, I have always been full of questions.” 

“You show the world as a complete, unbroken chain, an eternal chain, linked together by cause and effect.” 

“...and the vessel was not full, his intellect was not satisfied, his soul was not at peace, his heart was not still.” 

“When someone seeks," said Siddhartha, "then it easily happens that his eyes see only the thing that he seeks, and he is able to find nothing, to take in nothing because he always thinks only about the thing he is seeking, because he has one goal, because he is obsessed with his goal. Seeking means: having a goal. But finding means: being free, being open, having no goal.” 

“Most people...are like a falling leaf that drifts and turns in the air, flutters, and falls to the ground. But a few others are like stars which travel one defined path: no wind reaches them, they have within themselves their guide and path.” 

“Siddhartha has one single goal-to become empty, to become empty of thirst, desire, dreams, pleasure and sorrow-to let the Self die. No longer to be Self, to experience the peace of an emptied heart, to experience pure thought-that was his goal.” 

“There is, so I believe, in the essence of everything, something that we cannot call learning. There is, my friend, only a knowledge-that is everywhere, that is Atman, that is in me and you and in every creature, and I am beginning to believe that this knowledge has no worse enemy than the man of knowledge, than learning.” 

“I felt knowledge and the unity of the world circulate in me like my own blood.” 

“He sat thus, lost in meditation, thinking Om, his soul as the arrow directed at Brahman.” 

“And so Gotama wandered into the town to obtain alms, and the two Samanas recognized him only by his complete peacefulness of demeanor, by the stillness of his form, in which there was no seeking, no will, no counterfeit, no effort - only light and peace.” 


Brida



“Conhecimento sem transformação não é Sabedoria.”

"Quem conhece a felicidade nunca mais consegue aceitar humildemente a tristeza."

"Existem momentos na vida em que a única alternativa possível é perder o controle."

“Julgar-se pior que os outros é um dos mais violentos atos de orgulho, porque é usar a maneira mais destrutiva possível de ser diferente.”

“As flores refletem o verdadeiro amor. Quem tenta possuir uma flor verá a sua beleza murchar. Mas quem olhar uma flor no campo permanecerá para sempre com ela. Tu nunca serás minha e por isso ter-te-ei para sempre.”

“Faça a sua parte e não se preocupe com os outros. Acredite que Deus também fala com eles, e que estão tão empenhados quanto você em descobrir o sentido desta vida.”
“Quantas coisas perdemos por medo de perder.”
“Nunca deixe que as dúvidas paralisem as suas ações. Tome sempre todas as decisões que precisa de tomar, mesmo sem ter a segurança de estar a decidir corretamente.”

“Nada é completamente errado na vida; mesmo um relógio parado está certo duas vezes por dia”

"O caminho da Sabedoria é não ter medo de errar."

"Toda a vida do homem sobre a face da terra se resume a buscar o Amor. Não importa se ele finge correr atrás de sabedoria, de dinheiro ou de poder."
"Existem pessoas que se acostumam com seus próprios erros, e em pouco tempo confundem os seus defeitos com virtudes."

"É preciso correr riscos, seguir certos caminhos e abandonar outros. Nenhuma pessoa é capaz de escolher sem medo."

"Um guerreiro da luz sabe que não pode prever tudo."

"Só entendemos a vida e o Universo quando não procuramos explicações, aí tudo fica claro."

"Ser homem é ter dúvidas, e mesmo assim continuar o seu caminho."

"Nada na vida é completamente errado. Até um relógio avariado, marca a hora certa duas vezes ao dia. "

Então de que vale procurar? - perguntou ela.

- Não procuramos. Aceitamos, e então a vida passa a ser muito mais intensa e mais brilhante, porque entendemos que cada passo nosso, em todos os muitos da vida, tem um significado maior do que nós mesmos. Entendemos que, em algum lugar do tempo e do espaço, esta pergunta está respondida. Entendemos que existe um motivo para estarmos aqui, e isso basta.

"Mergulhamos da Noite Escura com fé, cumprimos o que os antigos alquimistas chamavam de Lenda Pessoal, e entregámo-nos por inteiro a cada instante, sabendo que sempre existe uma Mão que nos guia: cabe a nós aceitá-la ou não."


O Faquir



"... aquele homem não possuía nada, eu tinha acumulado muito mais do que seria capaz de gastar; aquele homem contava só consigo mesmo, eu tinha estribado a minha vida em todo o tipo de seguros, apólices e reformas; aquele homem não ia a parte nenhuma porque já estava onde queria estar, eu tinha passado a vida a ir mentalmente a todo o lado sem estar em nenhum... "


"... a vida é uma ilusão, uma farsa - disse o yogi, acentuando pausadamente as palavras. - Sofremos porque nos identificamos e, então, convertemo-nos em personagens hipnotizadas pela farsa, deixando assim de ser as testemunhas imperturbáveis da mesma. Deixa de identificar-te e deixarás de sofrer. Tu fazes parte do espectáculo, mas podes aprender a ser também o espectador sereno... "


"... mergulha em ti e quando aparecer uma sensação, uma emoção ou um pensamento, olha-o como um processo insubstancial que emerge do teu vazio interior, que passa e se dilui. Testemunha, não reajas, não acumules, não tomes, não recuses. Quando te sentires cansado ou te venham estados de amargura muito marcados, sente a tua respiração; observa como entra o ar, como sai, mas permanece erguido no teu vazio primordial... "


"... Saber soltar. Se não levantas os pés do arame que pisas, se não te soltas, como conseguirás avançar por ele? A vida consiste em agarrar e soltar, apanhar e largar. Temos de aprender a inaugurar cada instante. Nem sequer devemos agarrar-nos ao caminho do meio. Muito menos aos extremos! Chegará um dia em que até o corpo teremos de soltar... "
