The Eternal Quest

The true basis of religion is not belief, but intuitive experience. Intuition is the soul’s power of knowing God. To know what religion is really all about, one must know God.”

Happiness springs from within the self, it doesn't depend on outer conditions. Nothing outside ourselves, therefore, can define or qualify our happiness except as we allow it to do so. Once this unalterable truth is realized, happiness becomes our permanent possession.

Calmness is the living breath of God's immortality in you.

Peace is the altar of God, the condition in which happiness exists.

The real You is the prolific Source of all power; but the everyday you is only a fragment of that which can be brought out and manifested. The basic You is infinite in its potentiality.

Everyone has self-limiting idiosyncrasies. These were not put into your nature by God, but were created by you. These are what you must change -- by remembering that these habits, peculiar to your nature, are nothing but manifestations of your own thoughts.

When a person says again and again, I can't change; this is the way I am," then I have to say, "All right, stay that way, since you have made up your mind to be like that.

I know that God’s power is limitless; and as I am made in His image, I, too, have the strength to overcome all obstacles.

I relax and cast aside all mental burdens, allowing God to express through me His perfect love, peace, and wisdom.

Our real self, the soul, is immortal. We may sleep for a little while in that change called death, but we can never be destroyed. We exist, and that existence is eternal. The wave comes to the shore, and then goes back to the sea; it is not lost. It becomes one with the ocean, or returns again in the form of another wave. This body has come, and it will vanish; but the soul essence within it will never cease to exist. Nothing can terminate that eternal consciousness.

Yoga is a system of scientific methods for reuniting the soul with the Spirit....Yoga teaches us how to rise above the delusion of separation and realize our oneness with God.
Divisions are imaginary lines drawn by small minds.
