Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer. —Rainer Maria Rilke

It is not so much what we do but what we are that allows God to live in the world. When the presence of God emerges from our inmost being into our faculties, whether we walk down the street or drink a cup of soup, divine life is pouring into the world.  —Thomas Keating

The little space within the heart is as great as this vast universe. The heavens and the earth are there, And the sun, and the moon, and the stars; Fire and lightning and winds are there; For the whole universe is in Him and He dwells within our heart. —The Upanishads

Adopting an attitude of universal responsibility is essentially a personal matter. The real test of compassion is not what we say in abstract discussions but how we conduct ourselves in daily life. —His Holiness the Dalai Lama

People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth.

Life begets life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending yourself that you become rich. —Sarah Bernhardt

This is your life, and nobody is going to teach you, no book, no guru. You have to learn from yourself, not from books. It is an endless thing, it is a fascinating thing, and when you learn about yourself from yourself, out of that learning wisdom comes. Then you can live a most extraordinary, happy, beautiful life. Right? —Krishnamurti

Our breath is the bridge from our body to our mind, the element which reconciles our body and mind and which makes possible oneness of body and mind. Breath is aligned to both body and mind and it alone is the tool which can bring them both together, illuminating both and bringing both peace and calm. —Thich Nhat Hanh

 The body should be studied not only by those who wish to be doctors but by those who wish to attain a more intimate knowledge of God. —Al-Ghaz

It may be that when we no longer know which way to go that we have come to our real journey. The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings. —Wendell Berry
