Everything you need you already have. You are complete right now, you are a whole, total person, not an apprentice person on the way to someplace else. Your completeness must be understood by you and experienced in your thoughts as your own personal reality.

Life is a magic vase filled to the brim, so made that you cannot dip from it nor draw from it; but it overflows into the hand that drops treasures into it. Drop in malice and it overflows hate; drop in charity and it overflows love.


John Ruskin (1819-1900, British critic, social theorist)


A man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.


The Holy Bible (Sacred scriptures of Christians and Judaism)

Source: Luke 12:15


It is of the nobility of man's soul that he is insatiable: for he hath a benefactor so prone to give, that he delighteth in us for asking. Do not your inclinations tell you that the WORLD is yours? Do you not covet all? Do you not long to have it; to enjoy it; to overcome it? To what end do men gather riches, but to multiply more? Do they not, like Pyrrhus the King of Epire, add house to house and lands to lands, that they may get it all?


Thomas Traherne (1636-1674, British clergyman, poet, mystic)


In my hut this spring, there is nothing -- there is everything!
