Faith

I have noticed that even in the midst of the most profound spiritual darkness, there is ever in the centre of the soul a certain light of pure faith which is a most safe guide.  Jean Pierre de Caussade

If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things.  Rene Descartes

The only proof of His existence is union with Him.  Mandukya Upanishad

To find or know God in reality by any outward proofs, or by anything but by God himself made manifest and self-evident in you, will never be your case either here or hereafter.  William Law

Give us this day our daily faith, but deliver us, dear God, from Belief.  Aldous Huxley, Island

Revelations are the aberration of faith; they are an amusement that spoils simplicity in relation to God, that embarrasses the soul and makes it swerve from its directness in relation to God. They distract the soul and occupy it with other things than God. Special illuminations, auditions, prophecies and the rest are marks of weakness in a soul that cannot support the assaults of temptation or anxiety about the future.  J.J. Olier

All our petitions fall short of God and are too small to be worthy of him, and his goodness encompasses all that we can think to ask.  Julian of Norwich

Only what is not about me or around me, but is me, can be relied on. Only what's here will never let me down. This alone is permanent, free, eternal, unchanging. It is Nothing, Emptiness, mere Clarity. Yes, but it is a Nothing with a difference -- a Nothing that's aware of itself as Nothing, and as Everything! This am I!  D.E. Harding

 My Guru ordered me to attend to the sense 'I am' and to give attention to nothing else. I just obeyed. I did not follow any particular course of breathing, or meditation, or study of scriptures. Whatever happened, I would turn away my attention from it and remain with the sense 'I am'. It may look too simple, even crude. My only reason for doing it was that my Guru told me so. Yet it worked. Nisargadatta Maharaj
