“Never forget that life can only be nobly inspired and rightly lived if you take it bravely and gallantly, as a splendid adventure in which you are setting out into an unknown country, to meet many a joy, to find many a comrade, to win and lose many a battle.”

“It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters”.
Epíktētos 50-135 AD
“The most beautiful and most profound experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms. This knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness”
Albert Einstein 1879-1955
“By choosing our thoughts and by selecting which emotion to release, sustain and reinforce, we will determine what kind of light or vibration, we irradiate on others and on the nature of our own experience in life”.
“Realizing God is nothing but the ability, the expansiveness of heart to love everything equally.If you have true faith then automatically you will fall from the head into the heart.When someone’s heart is filled with love and compassion, your own heart will spontaneously open up like a blossoming flower.The closed bud of your heart unfolds in the presence of love.Your heart is the shrine, it is there you see God. Good thoughts are the flowers. Good action the worship. Good words the hymns. Love the Divine offering”.
Amma- Mātā Amṛtānandamayī Devī 1953-
“God is infinite, so His universe must be too. Thus is the excellence of God magnified and the greatness of His kingdom made manifest; He is glorified not in one, but in an infinity of worlds.”
