Michael A. Singer quotes page 3

The only permanent solution to your problems is to go inside and let go of the part of you 
that seems to have so many problems with reality. Once you do that, you'll be clear enough
to deal with what's left.
Michael A. Singer

Letting go of fear is not letting go of life.
Michael A. Singer

Imagine if you were to see someone walking around constantly talking to himself. You'd think
he was strange. You'd wonder, "If he's the one who's talking and he's the one who's listening,
he obviously knows what's going to be said before he says it. So what's the point? The same
is true for the voice inside your head. Why is it talking? It's you who's talking, and it's you
who's listening. And when the voice argues with itself, who is it arguing with? Who could
possibly win?
Michael A. Singer

It is actually possible to never have another problem for the rest of your life. This because
events are not problems; they're just events. Your resistance to them is what causes the
problem... You do deal with them. You just deal with them as events that are taking place on
the planet Earth, and not as personal problems.
Michael A. Singer

No matter what happens below you, just turn your eyes upward and relax your heart. You do
have to leave the Self in order to deal with the darkness. It will purify itself if you let it.
Getting involved in the darkness does not dispel darkness; it feeds it.
Michael A. Singer

How do you free yourself? In the deepest sense, you free yourself by finding yourself. You
are not the pain that you feel, nor are you the part that periodically stresses out.
Michael A. Singer

Do you think God likes to be around people that are happy or people that are miserable? It's
not hard to tell. Just think about it by imagining that you're God. You created the heavens
and earth so that you can play and experience yourself, and now you're dropping down to
check on your humans. So God asks the first human He sees,

"How are you doing?"

The human says, "What do you mean, how am I doing?"

"Well do you like it here?"

"No, I don't like it here."

"Why not? What' wrong?"

"That tree is bent in five places; I want it to be straight. This person went out with somebody
else, and that person ran up a hundred-dollar phone bill. This person has a nicer car than mine
and that person dresses funny. It's just terrible. Plus my nose is too big, my ears are too small,
and my toes are weird. I'm not happy with it. I don't like any of it."

So God says, "Well, how about the animals?"

"The animals? The ants and mosquitoes bite you; it's a terrible thing. I can't go out at night
because there are all these animals out there. They howl and poop all over the place, and I just
don't like it."

Do you think God likes listening to this? He says, "What do you think - I'm a complaint
department?" Then He goes and visits somebody else, and again, He asks,

"How are you doing?"

This person says, "I'm ecstatic."

God says, "Wow! Well, how do you like things?"

"They're beautiful. Everything I look at just creates waves of joy inside me. I look at that tree
bent; it just blows me away. The ant comes and bites me, and it's just so amazing that a tiny
ant could be so brave enough to bite a giant like me!"
