Pearls of wisdom

  Guru Nanak Dev
As fragrance abides in the flower
As reflection is within the mirror,
So does your Lord abide within you,
Why search for him without?
 “All know that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that the ocean merges into the drop.”
 Albert Einstein
  The intuituive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.

 Yogananda Paramahansa
 Spiritual success lies in constantly attuning yourself with the Cosmic Mind, and in maintaining your peace and poise no matter what irremediable events occur in your life, such as the death of dear ones, or other sorrowful happenings.
Mahatma Gandhi
 You must be the change
you wish to see in the world.
Gnanananda Swami
"A true disciple has no sadhana to perform. 
He has only to surrender himself completely to his guru".

Mata Amritanandamayi
 "Death of the ego leads to deathlessness. 
When the ego dies, you live eternally in bliss."

 Sri Ramana Maharishi
 We loosely talk of Self-realization, for lack of a better term.  But how can one realize or make real that which alone is real? All we need to do is to give up our habit of regarding as real that which is unreal. All religious practices are meant solely to help us do this. When we stop regarding the unreal as real, then reality alone will remain, and we will be that.

 “True knowledge is not attained by thinking. 
It is what you are; it is what you become.”
Sri Ravishankar Baba
  Meditation erases the impressions and improves the expression
Sri Sarada Devi
 As you smell the fragrance of a flower by handing it or the smell of sandalwood by rubbing it against a stone, so you obtain spiritual awakening by constantly thinking of God.

 Swami Vivekananda
 Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.

 Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
  You cannot transcend what you do not know.
To go beyond yourself, you must know yourself.
  The Upanishads
 The little space within the heart is as great as the vast universe. The heavens and the earth are there, and the sun and the moon and the stars. Fire and lightning and winds are there, and all that now is and all that is not.

Antonio Machado
 Wanderer, your footsteps are the road, and nothing more;
wanderer, there is no road, the road is made by walking.
By walking one makes the road,
and upon glancing behind
one sees the path. . .

Marcus Aurelius
 It is not the body, nor the personality that is the true self.
The true self is eternal. Even on the point of death we can
say to ourselves, "my true self is free. I cannot be contained.

  The no-mind not-thinks no-thoughts about no-things.
  Joseph Campbell
 The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe,
to match your nature with Nature.

Ramakrishna Paramahamsa
  Many are the names of God, and infinite the forms that lead us to know Him. In whatsoever name or form you desire to call Him, in that very form and name you will see Him.
