“There are two types of education: education for a earning a living and education for life. When we study in college, striving to become a doctor, a lawyer or an engineer, that is education for a living. But education for life requires an understanding of the essential principles of spirituality; it is about gaining a deeper understanding of the world, our minds, our emotions and ourselves.”
—Amma

“In essence, you are neither inferior nor superior to anyone. True self-esteem and true humility arise out of that realization. In the eyes of the ego, self-esteem and humility are contradictory. In truth, they are one and the same.”
Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

Three Minutes of Reality

Give me three minutes of reality
in this world of upside-down illusion.
How can one bear the lies,
a life of trumped-up stories
masked as values, religion, beliefs,
all the while no truth to be found.

Give me three minutes of reality
or does this even exist,
such a stranger to us all?

What is reality?
truth?
just one more story
invented to serve
the greed of a world
gone mad.
