Thursday Quote

"I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”

― Henry David Thoreau

Thursday Quote

By Ralph Waldo Emerson

If the red slayer think he slays,
Or if the slain think he is slain,
They know not well the subtle ways
I keep, and pass, and turn again.

Far or forgot to me is near;
Shadow and sunlight are the same;
The vanished gods to me appear;
And one to me are shame and fame.

They reckon ill who leave me out;
When me they fly, I am the wings;
I am the doubter and the doubt,
I am the hymn the Brahmin sings.

The strong gods pine for my abode,
And pine in vain the sacred Seven;
But thou, meek lover of the good!
Find me, and turn thy back on heaven.

Thursday Quote

In this life play I have not been in quest of Guru,
God, Truth, Grace, Salvation, nirvana, or power lust.

I had no ambition to be different from what I am.

Blessedly, I had escaped headucation, and was
free of any imposed knowledge. I had no property.

I did not marry. I did not belong to any cliques
or creed. I was not attracted to their magnetism.

I felt all is within our Self.

I had nothing to assert or resent.
Nor had I anything to boast about or regret.

I was fully contented.
I had joy in that which is.

-Sunyata (Alfred Sørensen)

Thursday Quote

"When your emotions are running wild and your breath is out of control, you attract disease and then the senses get very attached to the pleasures of the world. This causes the psychic channels to vibrate differently and block or prevent the Supreme Self from manifesting through the mind and the senses."

-Sri Dharma Mittra
