“Yoga practice can make us more and more sensitive to subtler and subtler sensations in the body.  Paying attention to and staying with finer and finer sensations within the body is one of the surest ways to steady the wandering mind.”

The weak can never forgive.  Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.

To give pleasure to a single heart by a single act is better than a thousand heads bowing in prayer.”

Mahatma Gandhi

“Quietness of mind, silence, self-harmony, loving-kindness, and a pure heart: this is the harmony of the mind.”

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.  But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”

The Buddha
