“Whatever period of life we are in is only good to the extent we make use of it, that we live it to the hilt, that we continue to develop and understand what it has to offer us and what we have to offer it.

“If I were aware of what the snake was, I wouldn’t brush it off my arm; it would get brushed off through me. – That’s the change I am talking about. You don’t change yourself; it’s not me changing me. Change takes place through you, in you. – You see change take place in you, through you, in your awareness, it happens. You don’t do it.”

“Do you want to enjoy a symphony? Don’t hold on to a few bars of the music. Don’t hold on to a couple of notes. Let them pass, let them flow. The whole enjoyment of a symphony lies in your readiness to allow the notes to pass.”
