When all doors are shut and you have nowhere to go, that is when you go within.
Every crisis is an opportunity and you are the beginning.

Do not try to correct the mind. Trying to correct the mind is like trying to correct the waves in the ocean. Can you stop the waves in the ocean?

To grow in unconditional love and in beauty, is spirituality.

The best form of service is to uplift someone's state of mind.
Look at your life in contrast with the magnitude of creation, space and time.
Your life becomes insignificant. Ego disappears.
You have nothing to lose. All that you can lose is your tension and your worry, your little-mindedness, fear, and anxiety.

Let your smile change the world! Never let the world change your smile!
