World and going beyond it - anand krishna

"do not mistake the raft for the shore. I do not say that rafts are not important. They are, but once you reach the shore, a raft is required no longer"

"Yet you must not cling to it. For shore is ur destiny, a raft takes u to ur destiny. Religions are like rafts. Rafts of different sizes, different colors, different shapes, perhaps differents speeds even, yet all of them serve one, only one and the same purpose - that of taking u across Samsara, the ocean of life and death"

"don’t waste ur time in arguing over whose raft is better. Ur arguments prove ur ignorance, U have not seen the other shore as yet; u have never been there. Once u get there, u will regret that u ever argued over such petty things"

from the books “Life : A Traveler’s Guide to Journey Within”

"Kehidupan mengajari dengan caranya sendiri. Kadang berulang-ulang, kadang cuma sekali, tergantung pemahaman dan kepekaan."
- Dananjaya (via indonesiasastra)
"Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible."

Carl Jung (via psych-facts)

Tapi kalau kita sadar bahwa kita tidak pernah benar2 sendiri. Selalu ada yang paham walau seluruh dunia tidak paham… itu pada akhirnya akan cukup

""bisa", "tidak bisa"…. "nyaman", "tidak nyaman"…
Itu semua jawaban yang benar,
Satu benar di kondisi lain. Satu benar di kondisi lainnya.
Satu berada di lainnya. Satu sama lain sama.
Ujungnya sama.
Tidak ada kebenaran absolut selain True Source kan?"
