Humanity

If money help a man to do good to others, it is of some value; but if not, it is simply a mass of evil, and the sooner it is got rid of, the better.
The will is not free - it is a phenomenon bound by cause and effect - but there is something behind the will which is free.
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.
Never think there is anything impossible for the soul.
Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.
We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.
You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
Where can we go to find God if we cannot see Him in our own hearts and in every living being.
We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment.
The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.
It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go.
Whatever good things we build end up building us.
Days are expensive. When you spend a day you have one less day to spend. So make sure you spend each one wisely.
Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenge, wish for more wisdom.
The big challenge is to become all that you have the possibility of becoming. You cannot believe what it does to the human spirit to maximize your human potential and stretch yourself to the limit.
The mind is like an elastic band. The more you pull, the more it stretches. The mind-elastic will never break. Every time you feel limitations, close your eyes and say to yourself, 'I am the Infinite,' and you will see what power you have.
Every thought requires a physical change in the brain, all the way down to the activity of our genes.
Each sense is equally unreliable... a mental expectation causes the sense of touch to deliver a false picture of reality.
All of us live in a participatory universe. Once you decide that you want to participate fully, with mind, body, and soul, the paradigm shift becomes personal.
