...Joy does not come from outside, for whatever happens to us is within...Light does not come to us from without. Light is in us, even if we have no eyes.
- Jacques Lusseyran, Blind Hero of the French Resistance.
Empty yourself of everything.
Let the mind rest at peace.
The ten thousand things rise and fall while the Self watches their return.
They grow and flourish and
then return to the source.
Returning to the source is stillness, which is the way of nature.
The way of nature is unchanging.
- Tao Te Ching
If every 8-year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation.
– Dalai Lama
If one thinks of oneself as free, one is free, and if one thinks of oneself as bound, one is bound. Here this saying is true, “As one thinks, so one becomes”.
– Ashtavakra Gita
I know but one freedom and that is the freedom of the mind.
– Antoine de Saint-Exupery
A few conscious-hearted, sincere, and energetic men and women can do more in a year than a mob in a century.
– Swami Vivekananda
