About this Site…

It took 45 years to create this web page!

The quotes on this site are taken from my workshops and writings, they represent the essence of the wisdom and realizations that have transformed my life and the lives of the many thousands I have shared them with. What I offer you here was first known to my head many years before it became known to my heart.

These quotes are divided into 29 topics, each dealing with a different aspect of life. From the influence of your deep-rooted beliefs to following your dharma/ calling; from the nature of blame to the healing power of compassion and forgiveness; from the feedback your life gives you to the dynamics driving relationships, and to a gamut of other insights, this wisdom will take you to an uncommon level of consciousness.

It is my hope that the wisdom I share will give you insights that might otherwise take long to realize. Accept what took 45 years to ripen in my heart through my study and teaching of great thinkers of both Western and Eastern traditions, the endless hours I have given to reflection on these teachings, and my experience of applying this wisdom in my own life, as my gift to you.

  • Who’s in Control?

    The body is like a car and you, the soul, are the passenger in it. If you don’t tell the driver, the mind, where to go, you will not be in control of your life.

  • Beware of the Accuser

    The mentality that causes us to criticize someone is often worse or lower than the action we are criticizing.

  • Karma and Free Will

    Your karma is your map. Where you choose to go within the confines of that map is your free choice.

  • The Death Mantra

    “I can’t change” is the mantra of death. Knowledge is meant to change us. When we stop learning, we stop growing. When we stop growing, we are as good as dead.

  • Don’t Be Owned

    Detachment means we should not be owned by what we own, or controlled by life’s situations. Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you react.
