“You do not have to get there. You cannot get there. You have only to ‘realize’ your self, and, as you do, you are satisfied. Then it is natural and spontaneous to express that in life and share that opportunity with others.”

“The experience of being yourself is innately satisfying. If who you really are does not give you the experience of health, happiness, love and full self-expression – or ‘aliveness’ – then that is not who you really are. When you experience yourself as yourself, that experience is innately satisfying. The experience of the self as the self is the experience of satisfaction.

Satisfaction is not ‘out there’. It cannot be brought in. You will never get satisfied. It cannot be done. When you want more and different or better, that is gratification, and while that is gratifying, we always want even more or even better. Satisfaction is completion, being complete – what has been called ‘the peace that passeth all understanding’. It is a condition of well-being – a sense of wholeness and of being complete right now – a context of certainty that right now is completely all right as right now and that the next moment will similarly be, fully itself. Not a judgment of good or bad, right or wrong, just what is.”

-Werner Erhard

“To be satisfied, to expand, you must first be where you are, and do what you are doing – no matter where you are and what you are doing.”

– Werner Erhard, from Werner Erhard, The Transformation of a Man, The Founding of est, by William Warren Bartley III

“Individuals transform when there is a shift in the principle which orients their life from one of gaining satisfaction to one of expressing the satisfaction they’ve already got.”

Werner Erhard

 

“When the context of your life shifts from becoming satisfied to being satisfied, an essential shift has occurred. You no longer seek satisfaction – you are satisfied. You no longer seek completion – you are complete. You shift from chasing satisfaction and completeness to expressing or manifesting satisfaction and completeness.”

Werner Erhard

“To be satisfied, to expand, you must first be where you are, and do what you are doing – no matter where you are and no matter what you are doing.”
