“Clarity of mind means clarity of passion, too; this is why a great and clear mind loves ardently and sees distinctly what he loves.”

~Blaise Pascal

“When the defects of others are perceived with so much clarity, it is because one possesses them oneself”

~Jules Renard

“More important than the quest for certainty is the quest for clarity”

~Francois Gautier

“Everyone sees the unseen in proportion to the clarity of his heart, and that depends upon how much he has polished it. Whoever has polished it more sees more - more unseen forms become manifest to him.”

~Rumi

“The best advice we can give ourselves is the loving advice we'd give somebody else. I can get some great clarity during my own workshops.”

~Jan Denise

“For me the greatest beauty always lies in the greatest clarity”

~Gotthold Ephraim Lessing

When confused about the best course for your life, do not battle that confusion. Make no attempt to clear your mind by making impulsive choices or by seeking allies for the battle. That is like fighting fog with your fists. Nothing good can happen.

When puzzled, do not do what you usually do. This is of utmost importance. Bewildered people cry out in desperation for an answer, which is then supplied by their own habit-thinking – which is always wrong. They might attract something which appears to relieve the crisis, but they are now simply confused in a new way. Sooner or later the sufferer is right back where he started, only sadder, for another pretty bubble has burst.

When remaining quiet, still, not battling, the disorder disappears. Why? Because confusion comes from habitual and mechanical thinking. When mechanical thought stops it can no longer create confusion. In that quiet space is clarity.

~The Daily Guru
