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.

  • We Always Have Choices

    We are all endowed with free will. Therefore, we always have the power to think and behave differently, and thus create better outcomes.

  • The Living Dead

    Hardly anyone is prepared to die; yet, ironically, hardly anyone knows why they are alive.

  • Humility is Attractive

    Pride makes you unattractive, even to yourself. Humility is so attractive that it attracts God’s heart and grace.

  • Years of Sleep

    If you live 75 years and you sleep 8 hours a day, 25 valuable years of your life is spent sleeping.

  • 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.
