"Realize that every mode of perception is subjective,
that what is seen or heard,
touched or smelt,
felt or thought,
expected or imagined,
is in the mind and not in reality,
and you will experience peace and freedom from fear."

"A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It’s not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it’s true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we’ve been attaching to, often for years."

"Reality is simply the loss of the ego. Destroy the ego by seeking its identity. Because the ego is no entity it will automatically vanish and Reality will shine forth by itself. This is the direct method."
