the beauty within each thought…

The beauty within each thought and feeling is a source of security, protection, and strength. 

Our self-imposed limitations fall away
before the limitless ability and intelligence of this deeper awareness.

Within the space of our deeper mind,
everything is perfect.

The link between work and spiritual values

The organic link between work and spiritual values
becomes more and more clear
as soon as we ask
what it is that people really want out of life.

People want to be happy, to accomplish something of value in their lives, and to live in a way that is healthy and balanced.

Being successful at work depends upon developing the capacities of the mind.

The power of prayer depends upon the ability to focus the mind.

Once we recognize these similarities,
we see that nothing prevents work
from being a path to knowledge.

The gateway to real freedom and peace

The mind provides us with a vital energy
that is responsive to every moment.

Developing awareness of this hidden resource
is the gateway to real freedom and peace,
a true refuge in a crowded and frustrating world.

Cultivating our inner treasures…

If we cultivate our inner treasures,
they will reward us with bliss, joy and happiness.

Wherever we go,
we can dwell serene and content,
nourished by pleasure and
satisfied by meaningful intimacy with ourselves, others,
and the environment we inhabit.

The Joy of Being

a paradise of unimaginable beauty

Our human faculties have wondrous qualities that can transform the pressures and frustrations of ordinary existence into  the bliss of the heaven realms here and now.

Our body is our vehicle,
and our sense faculties can open widows to
a paradise of unimaginable beauty.

A more open way of life…

The best route to a more open way of life is the practice of stillness.

Stillness comes as a result of loosening up long-standing tensions.

We slowly smooth out, and the oscillations of our senses and emotions, bit by bit, subside.

The power to nourish ourselves

Many of us are in a state of habitual, perpetual conflict
with ourselves, as the different facets of our embodiment
engage in ongoing arguments.

While these varied parts of us ultimately want the same thing –
to be at peace, to be comfortable,
each one has, so to speak, a different opinion
about how to accomplish this aim.

Over time, we learn that we have the power
to nourish ourselves at every moment.

We find we need
less and less outward support
to provide sweetness to our senses and feelings.

We do not have to rely upon pleasurable experiences in order to know joy.
