H ave been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ
who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in

Judaism Quote n4397 | 
Sota 21b 

   




T ruly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth
and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. He who
loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep
it for eternal life.





Christianity Quote n4396 | 
John 12.24-25 

   




I f any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross
and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it; and whoever
loses his life for my sake and the gospel's will save it.





Christianity Quote n4395 | 
Mark 8.34-36 

   




F or whoever would save his life will lose it,
and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.





Christianity Quote n4306 | 
Matthew 16.25 

   




I f, like a cracked gong, you silence yourself, you have already attained Nibbana




Buddhism Quote n4207 | 
Dhammapada 134 

   




T o study the way of the Buddha is to study your own self. To study your own self is to forget yourself. To forget yourself is to have the objective world prevail in you. To have the objective world prevail in you, is to let go of your 'own' body and mind as well as the body and mind of 'others.' The enlightenment thus attained may seem to come to an end, but though it appears to have stopped this momentary enlightenment should be prolonged and prolonged.




Buddhism / Mahayana / Zen (Chan) Quote n3967 | 
From Hashida, Shobo genzo shakui, 1, 142-64, selections translated in De Bary (ed.), Sources of Japanese Tradition, Op. Cit., Pp. 251-2 

   




M y enemy "I" is dead; now none can smite me down.
'Tis I who have slain myself; thus, being dead, I live.
We have slain our enemy, we have died; but he is not forgotten;
The thorn remains to vex us. Consider and lay this truth to heart:
You will only find the Beloved when you are as the living dead,
Only by losing yourself can you find Him who knows all.
When you regard yourself as nothing, then you will find the Beloved.
Recognize, therefore, by quiet reflection, from whence this thought of sell' arises.
Becoming as the living dead, enter onto the path





Others Beliefs Quote n3870 | 
Jiwat Mritak; Orr, 1947, pp. 105-106 

   




A re you ready to cut off your head and place your foot on it?
If so, come; Love awaits you!
Love is not grown in a garden, nor sold in the marketplace;
Whether you are a king or a servant, the price is your head, and nothing less.
Yes, the cost of the elixir of love is your head!
Do you hesitate? 0 miser, It is cheap at that price!





Others Beliefs / Litterature Quote n3851 | 
Bijak, Shastri, 1941;p.48 

   




D o thou, dear Timothy, in the diligent exercise of mystical contemplation, leave behind the senses and the operations of the intellect, and all things sensible and intellectual, and all things in the world of being and non-being, that thou mayest arise by unknowing towards the union, as far as is attainable, with Him who transcends all being and all knowledge. For by the unceasing and absolute renunciation of thyself and of all things, thou mayest be borne on high, through pure and entire self-abnegation, into the superessential radiance of the divine Darkness.




Christianity Quote n3673 | 
Mystical Theology, I.; Editors of The Shrine Of Wisdom, 1965; P. 10 

   




B ut possess yourself of It by the very elimination of [individual] being, and you hold a marvel! Thrusting forward to This, attaining, and resting in Its content, seek to grasp It more and more, understanding It by that intuitive thrust alone, but knowing its greatness by the beings that follow upon It and exist by Its power.




Philosophy / Noplatonism Quote n3662 | 
Enneads, 30:3: 10; in Porphyry, Life Of Plotinus, Turnbull, 1936; p. 116 

   




T hat person who is thus rooted in God's love must be dead to themselves and to all created things so that they are no more concerned with themselves than they are with someone who is over a thousand miles away. Such a person remains in likeness and in unity and is always the same This person must have abandoned themselves and the whole world Whoever entirely renounces themselves even for a moment would be given all things.




Christianity Quote n3533 | 
Selected Writings. Trans. Oliver Davies. New York: Penguin Books USA, Inc., 1994, p. 179 

   




B ut the soul must abandon her own being. This is where the death that is spiritual begins. If the soul is to undergo this death, then she must take leave of herself and all things, holding herself and all things to be as insignificant as they were before they existed I do not mean that the being of the soul falls into nothingness as she was before she was created, rather we should understand this cessation to be the eradication of possessing and having.




Christianity Quote n3532 | 
Selected Writings. Trans. Oliver Davies. New York: Penguin Books USA, Inc., 1994, p. 244 

   




B ut insomuch as there are but few who labor to die to themselves and to overcome themselves perfectly, they remain in their fleshly feelings and worldly comforts and can in no manner rise up in spirit above themselves.




Christianity Quote n3509 | 
The Imitation of Christ. Trans. Richard Whitford, moderenized by Harold C. Gardiner. New York: Doubleday, 1955, pp. 185-186 

   




I find myself nothing but naught and naught, O substance that cannot be weighed! O sea that cannot be sailed! In You and by You I find that my substance is nothing, and above all, nothing.




Christianity Quote n3499 | 
The Imitation of Christ. Trans. Richard Whitford, moderenized by Harold C. Gardiner. New York: Doubleday, 1955, pp. 125-126 

   




T here is a self-forgetfulness which is so complete that it really seems as though the soul no longer existed, because it is such that she has neither knowledge nor remembrance that there is either heaven or life or honor for her, so entirely is she employed in seeking the honor of God. It appears that the words which His Majesty addressed to her have produced their effect -- namely, that she must take care of His business and He will take care of hers. And thus, happen what may, she does not mind in the least, but lives in so strange a state of forgetfulness that, as I say, she seems no longer to exist, and has no desire to exist -- no, absolutely none -- save when she realizes that she can do something to advance the glory and honor of God, for which she would gladly lay down her life.




Christianity / Catholicism Quote n3480 | 
Interior Castle. Trans. E. Allison Peers. New York: Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, Inc., 1990, p. 215, Seventh Mansions, Chapter 3, Paragraph 2 

   




B ut note very carefully, daughters, that the silkworm has of necessity to die; and it is this which will cost you most; for death comes more easily when one can see oneself living a new life, whereas our duty now is to continue living this present life, and yet to die of our own free will. I confess to you that we shall find this much harder, but it is of the greatest value and the reward will be greater too if you gain the victory. But you must not doubt the possibility of this true union with the will of God. This is the union which I have desired all my life; it is for this that I continually beseech Our Lord; it is this which is the most genuine and the safest.




Christianity / Catholicism Quote n3478 | 
Interior Castle. Trans. E. Allison Peers. New York: Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, Inc., 1990, p. 113, Fifth Mansions, Chapter 3, Paragraph 6 

   




T he Lord's instructions to go in peace} are like acts wrought in us, and so they must have produced some effect in those who were already prepared to put away from them everything corporeal and to leave the soul in a state of pure spirituality, so that it might be joined with Uncreated Spirit in this celestial union. For it is quite certain that, when we empty ourselves of all that is creature and rid ourselves of it for the love of God, that same Lord will fill our souls with Himself.




Christianity / Catholicism Quote n3472 | 
Interior Castle. Trans. E. Allison Peers. New York: Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, Inc., 1990, p. 216, Seventh Mansions, Chapter 2, Paragraph 7 

   




I f a man is to enter this Divine union, all that lives in his soul must die, both little and much, small and great, and that the soul must be without desire for all this, and detached from it, even as though it existed not for the soul, neither the soul for it.




Christianity / Catholicism Quote n3467 | 
Ascent of Mount Carmel. Trans. E. Allison Peers, Book 1, Chapter 11, Paragraph 8 

   




F or when love is pure, you consider yourself as worthless, see yourself as dead and as nothing, and present yourself to God as dead and putrid.




Christianity / Catholicism Quote n3450 | 
Complete Works. Mahwah, New Jersey: Paulist Press, 1993, p. 193 

   




B y crucifying oneself to the world, and the world to oneself (Gal. 6:14)}, brethren, our souls therefore die before death and rise again before the resurrection of the body in deed, in power, in experience, and in truth. When the mortal attitude has been eliminated by the immortal mind and mortality has been driven out by life, then, as though it had risen from the dead, the soul manifestly sees itself, just as those who rise from sleep see themselves. It recognizes God who has raised it; as it perceives Him it gives Him thanks and worships Him and glorifies His infinite goodness. On the other hand, the body is entirely without breath, motion, and memory in relation to its own desires, but in these respects becomes altogether dead and lifeless.




Christianity / Orthodoxy Quote n3426 | 
The Discourses, p. 296, Trans. C.J. de Catanzaro. Ramsey, N.J.: Paulist Press, 1980. 

   




C hrist exhorts us to take up our cross and follow him (Luke 9:23)} I have learned from Scripture and from experience itself that the cross comes at the end for no other reason than that we must endure trials and tribulations and, finally, voluntary death itself we learn for sure that cross and death consist in nothing else than the complete mortification of self-will. He who pursues his own will, however, slightly, will never be able to observe the precept of Christ the Savior.




Christianity / Orthodoxy Quote n3425 | 
The Discourses, p. 232, Trans. C.J. de Catanzaro. Ramsey, N.J.: Paulist Press, 1980. 

   




A ll men are made in God's image; but to be in His likeness is granted only to those who through great love have brought their own freedom into subjection to God. For only when we do not belong to ourselves do we become like Him who through love has reconciled us to Himself. No one achieves this unless he persuades his soul not to be distracted by the false glitter of this life.




Christianity / Orthodoxy Quote n3400 | 
St. Diadochos of Photiki in On Spiritual Knowledge: ("Philokalia (Vol. 1)", p. 253, text 4) 

   




I n diligent exercise of mystical contemplation, leave behind the senses and the operations of the intellect, and all things sensible and intellectual, and all things in the world of being and non-being, that you may arise by unknowing towards the union, as far as is attainable, with Him who transcends all being and all knowledge. For by the unceasing and absolute renunciation of yourself and of all things you may be borne on high, through pure and entire self-abnegation, into the superessential Radiance of the Divine Darkness.




Christianity Quote n3362 | 
Mystical Theology, Chapter 1 

   




I f the soul is vigilant and withdraws from all distraction and abandons its own will, then the spirit of God invades it and it can conceive because it is free to do so (cf. Jn. 3:3-8).

Abba Cronius: The sayings of the Desert Fathers : the alphabetical collection. Trans. Benedicta Ward, SLG. Kalamazoo, Michigan: Cistercian Publications Inc., 1984, 1975, p. 115, Cronius 1 

   




H is ego falls like a battered wall. He unites with God, alive, but emptied of Nasuh (i.e. himself).




Islam / Sufism Quote n3332 | 
The Essential Rumi, p. 163, Trans. Coleman Barks with John Moyne. New York: HarperCollins Publishers, 1995 

   




W ith God, two I's cannot find room. You say I and He says I. Either you die before Him, or let Him die before you; then duality will not remain. But it is impossible for Him to die, either subjectively or objectively, since He is the Living God, the Undying (Koran 25:58). He possesses such Gentleness that were it possible, He would die for you so that duality might vanish. But since it is impossible for Him to die, you die, so that He may manifest Himself to you and duality may vanish.




Islam / Sufism Quote n3327 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 191, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




G od calls, "Come out of your selves quickly, or else every instant will be a shackle, every two paces snares and traps." Come out of ourselves? But to where? To selflessness! Selflessness is meaning, meaning! Self-consciousness is names, names!




Islam / Sufism Quote n3326 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 174, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




W hat sort of Beloved is He? As long as a single hair of love for yourself remains, He will not show His Face You must be completely repelled by yourself and the world and be your own self's enemy So when our religion resides in a person's heart, it stays right there until it takes his heart to God and separates it from everything unworthy.




Islam / Sufism Quote n3312 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 215, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




S omeone was saying: "I have studied so many branches of knowledge and mastered so many concepts; yet I still do not know which concept in man will abide forever. I have not discovered it yet."

If it could be known by means of words, there would be no need for the annihilation of individual existence or for so much suffering. You must strive to rid yourself of your own individuation before you can know that thing which will remain.





Islam / Sufism Quote n3298 | 
Signs of the Unseen: The Discourses of Jalaluddin Rumi, p. 203, Trans. W.M. Thackston, Jr. Putney, Vermont: Threshold Books, 1994 

   




H is mental questionings form the barrier. His physical eyesight bandages his knowing. Self-consciousness plugs his ears.




Islam / Sufism Quote n3296 |

G o sweep out the chamber of your heart.
Make it ready to be the dwelling place of the Beloved.
When you depart out, He will enter it.
In you, void of yourself, will He display His beauties.





Islam / Sufism Quote n3144 | 
'Rose Garden of Mystery' 

   




I nside this new love, die.
Your way begins on the other side.
Become the sky.
Take an axe to the prison wall.
Escape.
Walk out like someone suddenly born into color.
Do it now.
You're covered with a thick cloud.
Slide out the side. Die,
and be quiet. Quiteness is the surest sign
that you've died.
Your old live was a frantic running
from silence.

The speechless full moon
comes out now.





Islam / Sufism Quote n3141 | 
The Essential Rumi - Coleman Barks 

   




B y Allah!
I long to escape the prison of my ego
and lose myself
in the mountains and the desert.

T ake one step away from yourself and behold! the Path!




Islam / Sufism Quote n3129 | 

   




T he essence of all spirituality is this: "Complete and utter abandonment to the Will of God!

We must offer ourselves to God like a clean, smooth canvas and not worry ourselves about what God may choose to paint on it, but at each moment, feel only the stroke of His brush It is the same with a piece of stone. Each blow from the sculptor's chisel makes it feel-if it could-as if it were being destroyed. As blow after blow descends, the stone knows nothing of how the sculptor is shaping it. All it feels is a chisel chopping away at it, cutting it, and mutilating it. For example, let's take a piece of stone destined to be carved into a crucifix or a statue. We might ask it: 'What do you think is happening to you?" And it might answer: "Don't ask me. All I know is that I must stay immobile in the hands of the sculptor I have no idea what he is doing, nor do I know what lie will make of me. But I know his work is the best possible. It is perfect and so I welcome each blow of his chisel as the best thing that could happen to me, although, if I'm to be truthful, I feel that every one of these blows is ruining me, destroying me, and disfiguring me."

Beevers, John, trans. Abandonment to Divine Providence. New York: Doubleday, 1975, pp. 25, 3 7,40, 70, 73, 81-82 

   




C ome now, noble souls, and take a look at the splendor you are carrying within yourselves! But if you do not let go of yourself completely, if you do not drown yourself in this bottomless sea of the Godhead, you cannot get to know this divine light.




Christianity Quote n3082 | 
Pfeiffer, Frantz, and Evans, C de B., trans. Meister Eckhart. London: John M. Watkins, 1924, 193 1, Vol. 1: 118, 157, 221-222, 287, 338, 348, 363, 429, and Vol. 2: 41, 114. 

   




I maintain by God's eternal truth that God must pour Himself, without reservation, with all His powers, into everyone who has sunk completely into himself and has touched bottom. For it is God's very nature to give Himself to all those who are empty. And God will give Himself so fully and completely that nothing will be left of Himself-nothing will be left of His essence, His nature, nor His creation. God must pour everything, His totality, into that person who has completely given himself to Him.




Christianity Quote n3080 |

T he tavern-haunter is a seeker of Unity, a soul freed from the shackles of himself.




Islam / Sufism Quote n3068 | 
The Secret Rose Garden 

   




A Sufi began to weep in the middle of the night. He said, "The world is like a closed casket in which we are placed and in which, through our ignorance, we spend our time in folly. When Death opens the lid of the casket, each one who has wings takes his flight to Eternity~ but that one who is without wings remains in the casket. Before the lid is taken away from this casket, become a bird of the Way to God. Develop your wings and your feathers. No, rather burn your wings and your feathers and destroy yourself by fire, and so will you arrive at the Goal before all others.'




Islam / Sufism Quote n2955 | 
Essential Sufism, by James Fadiman & Robert Frager, Harper SanFrancisco, p.247 

   




I n truth, it is the one who has lost all knowledge and trace of his own existence who has, at the same time, found knowledge of the Beloved. So long as you will not ignore your own body and soul, how will you ever know the Object you love?




Islam / Sufism Quote n2954 |

Martin Bubers ten rungs, collected Hassidic saying, p.102 

   




I shall teach you the best way to say Torah. You must cease to be aware of yourselves. You must be nothing but an ear that hears what the universe of the word is constantly saying within you. The moment you start hearing what you yourself are saying, YOU must stop.
