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.

  • Self-Control is Real Freedom

    If we lack the willpower to do what we know we should do, and if we thus fail to take control over our own emotions and life, we will be left with a life devoid of our ideals. Thus, self-control is real freedom.

  • You Don’t Need to Change the Past

    It doesn’t matter so much what happened in the past. It matters more what you believe will happen in the future.

  • I Decide

    One of the greatest secrets – and revelations – is that “I decide.” “I decide” means I, the soul, can decide how I want to think and feel, where I want to go, and how I prefer to respond to the challenges on the way.

  • Give Back

    We often give little to God even though He gives us everything. A relationship with God isn’t for getting; it is for giving.

  • Ruled by Our Rules

    Our experience of happiness, success and well-being are not defined by circumstances or outcomes as much as they are by our own definitions and expectations of happiness, success and well-being.
