Belief

Religion is just a path for finding truth: Religion is not truth. It is just a path. And different people follow different paths.
In every moment, you have a choice. To either honor the part of you that craves something more. Or to continue squeezing into a role that doesn’t fill your cup.
A belief may be comforting. Only through your own experience, however, does it become liberating.
Identification with your mind creates an opaque screen of concepts, labels, images, words, judgments, and definitions that blocks all true relationship.
If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.
We meet ourselves time and again in a thousand disguises on the path of life.
There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.
Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word ‘happy’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
A man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them. As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being. Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.
The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.
We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.
Always Do Your Best. Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.
Death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive - the risk to be alive and express what we really are.
Love will win where jealousy will surely fail. If love cannot be the savior of a wrecked marriage relationship, it is folly to bring in the demon of jealousy, which might ruin both partners.
Change is not something that we should fear. Rather, it is something that we should welcome. For without change, nothing in this world would ever grow or blossom, and no one in this world would ever move forward to become the person they’re meant to be.
Do not think of yourself as a small, compressed, suffering thing. Think of yourself as graceful and expanding, no matter how unlikely it may seem at the time.
The Vedanta recognises no sin it only recognises error. And the greatest error, says the Vedanta is to say that you are weak, that you are a sinner, a miserable creature, and that you have no power and you cannot do this and that.
All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.
