Any kind of expectation creates a problem. We should accept, but not expect. Whatever comes, accept it. Whatever goes, accept it. The immediate benefit is that your mind is always peaceful.

Death can come at any minute, in any way. We do not know what is in store tomorrow, or, whether there is a tomorrow, or even a tonight! But still, we have the golden present. Now we are alive and kicking. What should we do now? Love all, serve all.

Do you want to know the secret of life? If you want to have everything, don’t want anything. Everything will run after you.

Now will never leave. It is always here. Like a clear canvas, it awaits our painting.

If you think you can get the answer and directions from within, fine, do that. Your own mind acts as a Guru if it’s clean enough. Ultimately, the Guru is within. But until you are able to get clear answers from within, you can ask somebody who already knows the way. And remember, it’s not the physical body that is the Guru; it’s the divine aspect that vibrates in the body.

Peace comes not from doing, but from undoing; not from getting, but from letting go.

The light is within. It is already there. Take your time to see it.

Though we can't always see it at the time, if we look upon events with some perspective, we see things always happen for our best interests. We are always being guided in a way better than we know ourselves.

Truth is the same always. Whoever ponders it will get the same answer. Buddha got it. Patanjali got it. Jesus got it. Mohammed got it. The answer is the same, but the method of working it out may vary this way or that.

We can see the same spirit in everybody only when we know we are that spirit, Atman or Self. Only a person who has understood his own Self can see that Self in everybody.

What comes seemingly as pleasurable is often followed by terrible pain. But, pain is a messenger. Obstacles are painful, but there is gain afterwards. Without pain we can never open our eyes and realize the shallowness of the temporary happiness we’re running after. So, don’t run after things. Just be content. God bless you. Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.

What is it that dies? A log of wood dies to become a few planks. The planks die to become a chair. The chair dies to become a piece of firewood, and the firewood dies to become ash. You give different names to the different shapes the wood takes, but the basic substance is there always. If we could always remember this, we would never worry about the loss of anything. We never lose anything; we never gain anything. By such discrimination we put an end to unhappiness.

Who will be the happiest person? The one who brings happiness to others.

Yoga believes in transforming the individual before transforming the world. Whatever change we want to happen outside should happen within. If you walk in peace and express that peace in your very life, others will see you and learn something.

You are the cause of your own joy or your own misery. You hold that power. You are your own friend and your own enemy.
