Relationship as a Catalyst for Spiritual Growth

It is always easier to be centred, zen, grounded and present when you are alone, when there is no one else there to disturb your peace. It is always easier to be authentic, to be truthful when you are alone, when you don't have to consider anybody else's feelings or opinions, and you can say or do whatever you want. Sometimes things just seem to be much easier when you are alone than being in partnership with someone.

Trust (Osho Zen Tarot)

There is a tremendous sense of exhilaration if we can take the jump and move into the unknown, even if the idea scares us to death. And when we take trust to the level of the quantum leap, we don't make any elaborate plans or preparations. We don't say, "Okay, I trust that I know what to do now, and I'll settle my things and pack my suitcase and take it with me." No, we just jump, with hardly a thought for what happens next. The leap is the thing, and the thrill of it as we free-fall through the empty sky.

Life is its own purpose (No-Thought for the Day)

Life is its own purpose; it is not a means to some end, it is an end unto itself. The bird on the wing, the rose in the wind, the sun rising in the morning, the stars in the night, a man falling in love with a woman, a child playing on the street... there is no purpose. Life simply enjoying itself, delighting in itself. Energy overflowing, dancing, for no purpose at all.

Drop guilt, because to be guilty is to live in hell. 
Not to be guilty, and you will have the
freshness of dewdrops in the early morning

petals in the lake, you will have the freshness
of stars in the night. Once guilt disappears
you will have a totally different
kind of life, luminous and radiant. 
You will have a dance to your feet
and your heart will be singing
a thousand and one songs.
