Religious Thought 25

On this ever-revolving wheel of being The individual self goes round and round Through life after life, believing itself To be a separate creature, until It sees its identity with the Lord of Love And attains immortality in the indivisible whole.
- Shvetashvatara Upanishad

Those who attain perfect wisdom are forever inspired by the conviction that the infinitely varied forms of this world, in all their relativity, far from being a hindrance and a dangerous distraction to the spiritual path, are really a healing medicine. Why? Because by the very fact that they are interdependent on each other and therefore have no separate self, they express the mystery and the energy of all-embracing love. Not just the illumined wise ones but every single being in the interconnected world is a dweller in the boundless infinity of love.
- Prajnaparmita

Prostrating himself he cried, "You indeed are the noble one; I, the ignoble, feel abashed on your account. You are perfect and still remain obedient to His command; and I, barely a fraction, remain unjust, wicked, and unguided. You are perfect, yet are humble and fear the Lord; and I, the tainted, am averse and hostile."
- Rumi

Faith wouldn't be faith without having to trust what is unseen...God wants us to put one foot in front of the other and just step out on faith.
Rebecca St. James

I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure--which is: Try to please everybody.
- Herbert Swope, address, Dec. 20, 1950
