"We're all of us sentenced to solitary confinement inside our skins, for life"
"It is an established fact that all of us wish to remain happy and want to lead our lives peacefully. But still we feel miserable most of the time.This is because we remain too much in the self. We can be either in the existence or in the self.Both are not possible together.To be in the self means to be apart or to be separate and draw boundaries around us.To be separate means to make a distinction between 'what I am' and 'what I am not' i.e. the self isolates. It makes us frozen.We are no longer flowing. We have, therefore, become ice cubes. We do not have warmth and afraid of love. On the other hand, if we think that we are all part of of this whole universe and identify with it,then warmth(of love) comes to us , we start melting and the boundaries of separateness disappear. We become happy and joyful."
"Love creates an "us" without destroying "me".
