NomadYogi: Let Your Self Go
There’s nothing to be removed, for all that appears to be in your eyes (the earth, etc.) is nothing but the infinite consciousness; and if something has been created, even that has taken place, by it, within itself. Everything is as it is; nothing has ever been created. You may say what appears to be is the creation of Māyā, but then Māyā itself is not real!
To hold our tongues when everyone is gossiping, to smile without hostility at people and institutions, to compensate for the shortage of love in the world with more love in small, private matters; to be more faithful in our work, to show greater patience, to forgo the cheap revenge obtainable from mockery and criticism: all these are things we can do.
~ Hermann Hesse”
