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.

  • Inspiration Moves Things

    If people are uninspired, it is because there is either no vision, support, empowerment, or love. Then progress slows down or goes in the wrong direction because people only participate with their bodies, not their hearts and souls. In this climate, it takes many people to accomplish the work that a few inspired souls could achieve. I have painfully seen this happen again and again. However, one good leader can turn this around – sometimes almost instantly.

  • Getting Even

    Why do we need to harm a person who hurt us when life is already doing them enough harm at every moment without our help? We should only try to get even with those who were kind to us!

  • It’s All About the Relationship

    The main reason most people quit their job is because of their boss. The main reason most people stay in their job is because of their boss.

  • The Nature of Matter

    The nature of material things is that the more you have, the more you want. It works this way with everything: wealth, power, possessions, and prestige. Thus, people who have the most are not necessarily the happiest or most satisfied.

  • The Real Lesson of the Fault

    If you see something you don’t like in another person, appreciate that they are showing you what you need to work on in yourself.
