I love this one.

The universe does not care what you believe. It is what it is, and it is right there in front of you.

One of the first books about buddhism I read (Buddhism Plain & Simple) kept on going on about ‘seeing things as they really are’. It came up so often that I ended up with the idea that there was something terribly profound and mystical to be seen. But the more I think about it now, the more I think that view is wrong. We are meant to see things as they are rather than as we want them to be. So goes the second part of this quote – ‘it is right there in front of you’. Just look. Nothing more.
