The Word of God is Truth and Truth is the Word of God, no matter where you find it.
Man does not know in what rank to place himself. He has plainly gone astray and fallen from his true place, without being able to find it again. He seeks it anxiously and unsuccessfully, everywhere in impenetrable darkness.
I have often said that all the misfortunes of men spring from their not knowing how to live quietly at home, in their own rooms.
Don’t waste the works of the devil. Spiritual roots can grow deeper in adversity. Use the inner, raging storms. Have sight without flight or fight. Remain a seer. Nothing is too much. All storms are for growth. Remember, no exceptions!
All of society lives from an endless deceptive practice. That practice is to perform the unnecessary and the harmful while trying to make them look like the necessary and the beneficial.
Write down the word “gullibility.” Look it up in the dictionary. Study it.
Always remember that the world rewards its own. The more you lie and deceive people, the more you get from this world in position and power.
One characteristic of a sane mind is its refusal to get involved in society’s insanity because it recognizes insanity when it sees it.
Nothing is so firmly believed as what we least know.
We are never present with, but always beyond ourselves. Fear, desire, and hope are always pushing us towards the future.
All other knowledge is hurtful to him who has not the science of honesty and good-nature.
Fortune does us neither good nor hurt; she only presents us the matter, and the seed, which our soul, more powerfully than she, turns and applies as she best pleases; being the sole cause and sovereign mistress of her own happy or unhappy condition.
There is no passion that so much transports men from their right judgement as anger.
The most certain sign of wisdom is continual cheerfulness; her state is like that of things in the regions above the moon, always clear and serene.
Lose no time, get up and take the course again, for he who rises quickly and continues his race makes it as if he had never fallen.
This science is not theoretical, but practical, in which experience surpasses the most polished and clever speculation.
There is value in everything that happens to you, especially in those events that appear sorrowful or troublesome. Suffering can supply us with the very ending of suffering, if only we listen to its lesson. Fear, when carefully examined, can free us from fear.
To live rightly in this world we must first become aware of it. The problem is a man’s false assumption that he is already aware, which leaves him no motive for investigation. Do not assume that the only existing world is that presented by the five senses and the surface mind.
What you want also wants you. If you seek the celestial the celestial also seeks you. There are no unanswered requests in the universe. If we do not like what we are receiving, we can learn to ask for something different. Then we will find what we wish.
False spiritual work keeps you comfortable. Real spiritual work makes you uneasy.
