What do you mean? — “I’m not a person”

I’m not a person, and if you like me as a person you have missed me. You have missed the impersonal that is present here. I am just an opening. Come close to me and I will help you to become impersonal too. (Osho (Rajneesh), from The Wisdom of the Sands Vol II, p338)

The Buddha taught some people the teachings of duality that help them avoid sin and acquire spiritual merit. To others he taught non-duality, that some find profoundly frightening. (Nagarjuna)

Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. (George Bernard Shaw)

The self is the isolated ego clinging to its small reality; the Self is the unbounded spirit that does not cling at all. (Deepak Chopra)

You cannot transcend what you do not know. To go beyond yourself, you must know yourself. (Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj)

A person is what his deep desire is. It is our deepest desire in this life that shapes the life to come. So let us direct our deepest desires to realize the Self. (Chandogya Upanishad)

The Self is beyond knowledge and ignorance. (Ramana Maharshi)

There is no such thing as a person. There is only the universal recycling as a person. You are the universe. (Deepak Chopra)

Be like melting snow — wash yourself of yourself. (Mawlana Jalal-al-Din Rumi)
