15 Quotes From a Modern Day Zen Master That Will Change Your Perspective on Life

Ever heard of Mooji? If not, he is one of the greatest modern day spiritual teachers that has helped countless people achieve their goals of inner peace.

Mooji encourages his students to question who or what they are at the deepest level. One of his well known exercises is to identify the natural feeling ‘I am’ or ‘I exist’ and staying with this for 5 to 7 minutes at a time.

Another is to come to the recognition that everything (thoughts, emotions, sensations) can be perceived, and then inquiring, “Can the perceiver itself be perceived?”

Below, we share some of his most biting quotes on the journey of discovering who you truly are.

Everything is a blessing

“Don’t be too quick to interpret the moment. Just keep quiet. My encouragement would always be: never think anything is against you, everything is blessing. Why should it be different? Just be quiet. Let it all work itself out.”

On your thoughts

“No thought has any power. You have power. And when you identify and believe in the thought you give power to the thought.”

Let go and trust in life

“If you do not trust life to unfold, the mind takes over and it becomes a game of strategy, motivated by anxiety. This mistrust is unfair. Life has given us so much, and yet we do not trust it.”

Some of your friends will be marathon runners

“Some beings will walk with you for the duration of this bodily existence, up to the very end. Some will come with bright promises, bright lights, but they fade quickly. Others come, they don’t look like they will go very far, but they are marathon runners; they’re there with you all the time. You cannot determine this… Somehow in the flow of your own unique river, you will see that everything is as it should be.”

The world is beautiful and free

“Don’t remind the world that it is sick and troubled. Remind it that it is beautiful and free.”
