Open yourself…


A teacher cannot give you the truth. The truth is already in you. You only need to open yourself – body, mind and heart – so that his or her teachings will penetrate your own seeds of understanding and enlightenment. If you let the words enter you, the soil and the seeds will do the rest of the work.

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

  1. I love this!! I have always felt like this! The truth is in our soul, as our soul is a part of the eternal divine 🙂 Lovely quote! Even Krishna says the same, he says: “The self (atma) is one’s real guru and guide.” This he says in the Shrimad Bhagavata Purana, and in the Bhagavadgita he says: “Raise Yourself by your own self.” 🙂 It’s little bit the same 🙂
