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.

  • Positive Thinking

    Positive thoughts are like a turbo engine under your feet pushing you up against the gravity of life that tries to pull you down.

  • Find Time to Meditate

    If you can’t find ten to fifteen minutes a day to meditate, you are either working too hard or are too restless to sit quietly.

  • The Ego’s Purpose

    The ego’s purpose is not to be enlightened but to be noticed and recognized, to be in the center and to be praised.

  • Loving Stuff

    Stuff gives temporary satisfaction to the mind and senses. Love gives permanent satisfaction to the heart.

  • Knowledge from the Heart

    Sometimes it’s not knowledge that we need, but it’s the softening or transforming of the heart that is needed. This enables us to learn from a new acquired perspective, from a new level of awareness.
