The fact remains that man has become God and man can become God for the simple reason that, knowingly or unknowingly, man is God. Only so long as man’s ignorance lasts will there seem to be no end to the plural diversity of illusory things. When divine knowledge is gained he realizes that there is no end to the indivisible oneness of God.

The Supreme Entity is the vastest entity; the ultimate source of all cosmic emanations. The Supreme Entity, which is difficult to conceive, is the subtlest of the subtle. He is farther away than any other entity, but again He is nearer than the nearest. Only the one who looks into the innermost recesses of himself can realize the Supreme Entity.
Human society is one and indivisible. Don’t try to divide it. Each and every individual should be looked upon as the manifestation of the Cosmic Entity.
He is infinite. He has no beginning and no end. He is the unbroken flow of pure and serene bliss, stretching from beginninglessness to endlessness.

– Sri Sri Anandamurti

When any supposedly ill behaviour
of your Beloved the Great Lord
will not agitate your mind
upsetting your temperament
thus making you maintain
unbreakable constancy
to your Beloved the Great Lord
beware! It is a test of adherence
which is goading you on
in a modest manner
so that your character gets consoled ;
and that is indeed the way to be a heavenly man.

– Thakur Shri Shri Anukul Chandra

Kabir, referring to the removal of the seven folds of the veil, says:

Tere ghukghata ke pata khola tujhe Rama milega.

“Open the folds of your veil, and you shall find God.” The ghunghat literally means the covering that a woman extends over her head and face in a number of folds; in spiritual parlance it re p resents the heavy folds of ignorance that keep man hidden f rom his real identity. The lifting of it, fold by fold, corresponds to the stage-by-stage journey of a pilgrim from the first through the fifth plane of the divine path.

– Meher Baba (God Speaks)

Under the illusion of cosmic duality the apparent separation between man and God is invariably re f e rred to by masters in terms of the intervenient “veil” and “curtain.” Hafiz, who was a Perfect Master as well as a great poet, says:

Miyanah ’ashiq o m’ashuq hic hayal nist
Tu Kvud hijab-i Kvudi, Hafiz, az miyan barKiz.

“ There is no barrier between the lover and Beloved; Hafiz, lift yourself aside, you are yourself the covering over Self.”

– Meher Baba

Dar asitan-i janan asman biyandish
Kaz auj-i sar bulandi ufti biKak-i pasti.

“On the threshold of the Beloved, beware of the allurements of the heavens, lest you bring about your fall from the heights of progress and greatness to the depths of degradation and ruin.”


If a gift is to be real, then both the giver and receiver of the gift must forget the transaction comp letely. To forget completely would mean that the giver should not feel he has given, and the receiver should not know he has received. If the giver does not forget, then he has obligated the receiver; and if the receiver does not forget, he experiences a sense of obligation towards the giver. The real gift of love bestowed on man 12 comes from God alone, and remembrance is absent in both the One who gives and the one who receives. Because of this complete forgetfulness man can strive eternally to love God, and God remains the eternal Beloved for mankind.

-Meher Baba

If anyone hurts you and you forgive him, you are leading yourself to the kingdom of God. If anyone is quarrelsome and you give understanding, you are taking yourself to the kingdom of God. If someone is suffering and you reach out with aid and compassion, you are moving into the presence of God.

– Yogananda

Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself.
Do not lose courage in considering you own imperfections
but instantly set about remedying them – every day begin the task anew.

– Saint Francis de Sales

Someone asked, “Why is there suffering?” Meher Baba gave this succinct reply: “Suffering is essential for the elimination of the ego, just as it was necessary for you to scrub and scrub in order to wash the stain from my coat.”

To learn the secret of the Unseen is only fitting for that one who can seal her lips and keep silent.
– Rumi

“Happiness is an inside job”
People go through their whole lives chasing everything in the material world, and they fail to discover the greatest treasure of all, which is within them.
Shut your eyes to the outside world. Direct your thoughts and words to the inside of you. The Master within you is the key to all the treasures in the world.
~ from the book ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne

Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be,
The last of life, for which the first was made:
Our times are in His hand
Who saith, “A whole I planned,
Youth shows but half; trust God: see all, nor be afraid!”

– Robert Browning

He who binds to himself a joy
Doth the winged life destroy.
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in Eternity’s sunrise.

– William Blake

I kept searching for meaning and then love embraced me, all search disappeared.

~ Buddha

Lord, the night is gone. The dawn has lighted the sky. How I long to know if You accepted or rejected my prayers. Comfort me, Lord, for only you can comfort this state of mine.
You gave me life and nurtured me; Yours is all the praise. If You would ever drive me away from Your door, I would never abandon it for the sake of Your love, which I carry in my heart.-

~ Rabia Rabia the Mystic

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God.

Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.

– Anne Frank

It doesn’t take much inner listening to know that ” in there ” are many voices: speaking, singing, shouting and whispering.

What the inner voice says
Will not disappoint the hoping soul.

~ Friedrich Schiller

Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.

― Mother Teresa

Who dares impede my progress? Who presume
The spirit to control which guideth me?
Still must the arrow wing its destined flight!
Where danger is, there must Johanna be;
Nor now, nor here, am I foredoomed to fall;
Our monarch’s royal brow I first must see
Invested with the round of sovereignty.
No hostile power can rob me of my life,
Till I’ve accomplished the commands of God.

Freidrich Schiller
(The Maid of Orleans) (1801), Act II, Scene 4 (as translated by Anna Swanwick)

Never destroy your own happiness through impatience and thoughtlessness. The same thing can produce both happiness and unhappiness. We can make ourselves so uncontrolled, so unworthy of the blessings that surround us that we are not able to take good opportunities when they come. Truth is a light, a glowing spiritual light. When that light shines, there can be no darkness. Heaven is not a vague, visionary thing. It is something we create within ourselves. We make it out of the exuberance and radiance of our own soul.

Swami Parmananda

0 Thou All-abiding Spirit, make Thy care and guidance a reality to me.
May the consciousness of Thy Presence become so vivid
That I may find all my rest and strength in Thee alone.
May I walk by Thy light only and never turn away to follow darkness.

Swami Parmananda
(Book of Daily Thoughts and Prayers)

Our happiness depends on the happiness of others. We should expand our little nature. There is no such thing as selfish happiness in political life ; there is no such thing as selfish happiness in social life ; there is no such thing as selfish happiness in spiritual life. Unhappiness means that we close our hearts to the higher avenues of true joy. True happiness is contained in the Infinite and Eternal.

Swami Parmananda
(Book of Daily Thoughts and Prayers)

May the Divine Spirit protect me from selfishness and pettiness.
May I never yield to dejection or discontent.
May He grant me brightness of spirit and cheerfulness.
May I find all my happiness in Him, not in the things of this world.
May He bestow His peace and blessing upon my life

Swami Parmananda
(Book of daily Thoughts and Prayers)

If the door shuts, do not go away.
Be patient, even if every possibility seems closed.
The friend has secret ways known to no one else.

—- Rumi

He wept when they appointed him judge. The deputy asked, “Why do [you] cry? This is the time to rejoice.” “How can I who does not know decide between two who know?” “Accept no bribe,” the deputy said. “Then you will know. Do not give in to desire; it will make you blind. Since I turned from vain desires, my heart has become like a mirror bright. It recognizes truth from untruth.

-Rumi Mathnawi

Not allowing a day to pass without doing some good is a boulder that will block your passage on the path to rebirth. Only virtuous deeds abound in true joy. All other deeds are empty and devoid of distinction.


The degree of freedom from unwanted thoughts and the degree of concentration on a single thought are the measures to gauge spiritual progress.

Raman Maharishi

Lover, sit still and wait ;
Whom thou desirest will come.
Being alone is not lonely.
And how wilt thou receive Him if thou art
not alone ?
Waiting is for preparing ;
Watching with longing is sweet ;
And when He comes all this will end
And thou thyself will be lost in love.

Swami Parmanand

It is necessary to open the deeper side of one’s
nature by patience, humility and obedience before
one can take spiritual teaching. That is why the great
sages of India were so insistent in their discipline.
Those who cannot bear reprimand, it shows they are
shallow and empty. Discipleship is a very sacred
thing and it cannot be given to one who is not fully
prepared for it.
