"ding-dongs"

 

moments of awareness that something enlightening is knocking at the door of our consciousness and we will be forever changed by its wisdom.

on this page, i will share quotes or passages from books and articles 

that have inspired giant "ding dong" moments for me.

 

......

"If you want to achieve peace in the face of your problems, you must understand why you percieve a particular situation as a problem. If you're feeling jealousy, instead of trying to see how you can protect yourself, just ask, "What part of me is jealous?" That will cause you to look inside and see that there's a part of you that's having a problem with jealousy.

 

Once you clearly see the disturbed part, then ask, "Who is it that sees this? Who notices this inner disturbance?" Asking this is the solution to your every problem. The very fact that you can see the disturbance means that you are not it.
