"As many faiths, so many paths"
Sri Ramakrishna

"Hold on...
to what is good even if it is a handful of earth
to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself
to what you must do even if it is a long way from here
to life even if it is easier letting go
to my hand even if I have gone away from you."

"self control doesn’t come from controlling our feelings but from feeling our feelings."
Rahayu Ratnaningsih

"This is your life, and nobody is going to teach you, no book, no guru.

it is a fascinating thing, and when you learn about yourself from yourself,
out of that learning wisdom comes."
J. Krishnamurti

"Religion is to seek after that which you have never lost...
It is to find that which was always there...
It is stopping to be that which you never were...
It is to meet anew that which never left...
It is to return to that place you have never left...
It is to return."
Swami Ramakrishnananda

Ramakrishnananda Yoga Vedanta Mission

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.

Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.

All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.

A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incident's and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.

Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it.

Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now."
Johan Wolfgang von Goethe 1749-1832

"Only if you set and sustain a goal/attitude/visualization combination as your most important mind-set,
to love unconditionally

yourself, all others, and the Source of Life,

independently of the behavior of others, will the outcomes always and reliably be positive, enhance life energy, and will you grow into expressing the fullness of who you truly are, a Being of spiritual love, wisdom and strength."
Edith Stauffer

"The way to the liberation of the soul through Self-Knowledge is called yoga. Vedanta speaks of four yogas, or paths to the goal: Jnana-Yoga, or the direct way of Knowledge; Bhakti-Yoga, or the natural way of divine love; Karma-Yoga, or the practical way of unselfish work; and Raja-Yoga, or the scientific way of concentration and meditation. The primary road block to Self-Knowledge is the restless mind. The four Yogas are four ways to overcome the restlessness."
Swami Vivekananda

"Social life in the West is like a peal of laughter; but underneath, it is a wail. It ends in a sob. The fun and frivolity are all on the surface: really it is full of tragic intensity. Now here (in India), it is sad and gloomy on the outside, but underneath are carelessness and merriment."
Swami Vivekananda

"You teach what you have to learn.
It is not necessary to have achieved perfection to speak of perfection.
It is not necessary to have achieved mastery to speak of mastery."

God "Conversations with God (Book 3)" through Neale Donald Walsch

"I have learned silence from the talkative,
toleration from the intolerant,

yet strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers."

Robert Half

"Everything and everyone in your life is there by your choice"
Stephen C. Paul

"You can't not have enlightenment, but you can claim to not have it.
And you can live a belief that you're unenlightened, even
  while striving to ‘attain’ enlightenment. Stop claiming
  unenlightenment, and simply begin accepting who you truly are,
  instead of accepting who you aren't, and then live who you are.
  Nothing is required to attain enlightenment; it is simply a
  matter of being who you've always been."
  Charles David Heineke

6. We can grow."

From the book "Struggle For Intimacy" by Janet Woititz

"Whenever you are not getting what you need, you are always looking in the wrong direction."

"Material success can only make you happy if you are already happy."
John Gray, Ph.D., in "How to Get What You Want and Want What You Have"

"Self is the opaque veil that hides the Face of God from us.
It can be removed only in spiritual experience, never by mere instruction."
A. W. Tozer

"The ultimate Truth is beyond words. Doctrines are words. They're not the Way.
The Way is wordless. Words are illusions... Don't cling to appearances, and you'll break through all barriers..."

Chuang Tzu

"The brain was a perfect physical instrument. It served the consciousness of man and woman and the will of the earth. Nothing suffered from its activities. Today the instrument has taken over. The servant has usurped the master's role."

"I say unto you that suffering is not holding you, you are holding suffering.... And when you become good at the art of letting sufferings go, then you'll come to realize what you were dragging around with you. And for that, no one else other than you was responsible.... The truth is that existence wants your life to become a festival...because when you are unhappy, you also throw unhappiness all around."
Osho formerly known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

"I am only acting as a mirror to your life, in which you can see yourself as you are;
then you can throw away the mirror; the mirror is not important."

He has to find it through the understanding of the contents of his own mind, through observation and not through intellectual analysis or introspective dissection."
J. Krishnamurti
