"Flowers, sesame-seed, bowls of fresh water, a tuft of kusha grass,
all this altar paraphernalia is not needed
by someone who takes the teacher's words in
and honestly lives them.
Full of longing in meditation,
one sinks into a joy that is free of any impulse to act,
and will never enter a human birth again."
Lalla - Kashmiri woman mystic - 14th century

"Control yourself, let others do what they will.
This does not mean you are weak.
Control your heart, obey the principles of life.

Matthew 6:24 (New International Version - UK)

No-one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.

"At the center of the universe is a
loving heart that continues to beat
and that wants the best for every person.

Anything we can do to help foster
the intellect and spirit and emotional growth
of our fellow human beings, that is our job.

Those of us who have this particular vision
must continue against all odds.

Life is for service."
