“The selfish thing is to demand that someone else live their life as YOU see fit. That’s selfish. It is not selfish to live your life as you see fit. The selfishness lies in demanding that someone else live their life to suit your tastes, or your pride, or your profit, or your pleasure.”

“You don’t even need to be in love. Who told you you do? What you need is to be free. What you need is to love. That’s it; that’s your nature. But what you’re really telling me is that you want to be desired. You want to be applauded, to be attractive, to have all the little monkeys runnings after you.”

“There’s only one reason why you’re not experiening bliss at this present moment, and it’s because you’re thinking or focusing on what you don’t have. – Right now you have everything you need to be in bliss.”
