i promise to never forget,
that this is a once in a lifetime love.
i vow to love you, and no matter
what challenges might carry us apart,
we will always find our way back to each other…
whoever you are holding me now in hand,
without one thing all will be useless
I give you fair warning before you attempt me further,
I am not what you supposed, but far different.
who is he that would become my follower?
who would sign himself a candidate for my affections?
the way is suspicious, the result uncertain, perhaps destructive.
you would have to give up all else,
I alone would expect to be your sole and exclusive standard,
your novitiate would even then be long and exhausting,
the whole past theory of your life and all conformity to the
lives around you have to be abandoned
therefore release me now before troubling yourself any further
let go your hand from my shoulder,
put me down and depart on your way…
True tolerance makes us flexible. And when we are flexible we can accommodate and adjust to anything and anyone and maintain well-being. The ability to bend without breaking is linked to the amount of tolerance we develop. When we are fully flexible, we become able to adjust to the most unexpected, negative and difficult situations and people.
When your open your eyes in the morning, sit for a moment and appreciate the gift of a new day, create a peaceful thought and enjoy some moments of silence throughout the whole day.
True happiness comes when my mind and the senses have become quiet and peaceful. In that state, there is spiritual power; we are performing actions, but free from desires and free from attachment to what we do. Such happiness finishes any sorrow that comes to us.Take time to find that quiet and peaceful place inside and happiness will stay in our hearts forever.
Humility comes from the understanding that the force behind whatever help you give to others comes not from you but from the power of love. It is not true that if you are humble others will walk all over you. It is when there is no humility that you can easily be influenced by others and things seem difficult.
But when there is humility, there is also the power of truth. You know internally that you will achieve your aim, regardless of what others say or think. A humble person never feels they are bowing to others. The head is held neither too high nor low – it just faces straight ahead, like an angel. Humility reveals your truth.
Humanity is like a tree. Each human being is connected with the Seed and belongs to the same tree. The beauty of the tree is that it has different branches and on each branch, numerous leaves. All individuals are also different and have their own role. Think about what we have in common and you will appreciate every human being.
This is the key to remain at peace.
There is a part of you that is perfect and pure. It is untouched by the less that perfect characteristics you’ve acquired by living in a less than perfect world. It is filled with divine qualities, so is in a constant state of resourcefulness and well-being. Its total absence of conflict and negativity of any sort makes this part of you a Still-Point – a deep, enriching experience of Silence.
