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.

  • Feeling Versus Acting

    We have to learn to not always act on how we feel, but rather to act in ways that are beneficial for ourselves and others.

  • Quarrel With Reality

    We have a fundamental quarrel with reality. We are eternal beings encaged in a dying body within a temporary world. We are captives in a foreign land.

  • The Past Can Destroy Your Future

    If you don’t make peace with the troubles of your past, the past will destroy your future.

  • Truth is Simple

    The truth is so simple that you can miss it. We have become so sophisticated and complex that the obvious is anything but obvious.

  • Can You Do More?

    When you review the service you have done, ask yourself, “Could I practically have done more?” If yes, and you can note what the “more” is, do it.
