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.

  • Succumb to a New Habit

    When you’re faced with a choice to succumb to an old habit or stick to your resolve, notice how you’re talking to yourself about the choice. Saying no to something isn’t an act of self-denial, it’s an act of self-care. Give yourself credit for the good choices you make and the good things you do.

  • Dedicated to Beliefs

    You will give your life to what you believe. If you believe you are a body, you will give you life to sensual pursuits, to actions aimed primarily at personal pleasure. If you believe you are a soul, you will give your life to spiritual pursuits, to uplifting yourself, to Divine service, and to serving the world.

  • Words

    Sweet words can uplift someone more than the best medicine, whereas no weapon can destroy someone as well as harsh words.

  • Freedom in Love

    To surrender to God is the highest happiness because surrender means to be bound by love.

  • Enthuse Others

    If we are not inspired and enthusiastic about what we are doing, we will find it difficult (or impossible) to enthuse and inspire others.
