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.

  • Will Power

    God’s gift to us is the freedom to make our own choices. When we do not utilize this gift, choices are made as conditioned responses to external stimulus.

  • Putting Out Others’ Light

    Your light won’t get brighter by blowing out someone else’s light.

  • It’s Not About Your Looks

    It’s not about how spiritual you look; it’s about how genuine your connection (yoga) with the Divine is.

  • Be You

    Don’t be mad at your own karma and envious of another’s. Celebrate you and do your dharma. If you are a sweeper, dance with your broom.

  • There is No Failure, Only Feedback

    Often, the only way we learn is by failing. Therefore, it is not only okay to fail; it is sometimes necessary. In reality there is no failure, only feedback and lessons. Therefore, how you manage failure and difficulty will determine how well you succeed.
