That thou art.
Whoever sees all beings in the soul and the soul in all beings…
What delusion or sorrow is there for one who sees unity?
It has filled all. It is radiant, incorporeal, invulnerable…
Wise, intelligent, encompassing, self-existent,
It organizes objects throughout eternity.
Then he realized, I indeed, I am this creation, for I have poured it forth from myself. In that way he became this creation. Verily, he who knows this becomes in this creation a creator.
Of a certainty, the man who can see all creatures in himself, himself in all creatures, knows no sorrow.
I am this world and I eat this world. Who knows this, knows.
Thoughts held in mind produce after their kind.
Thank you God for this and more. We leave “open” the possibilities of an unlimited, all knowing Source to bless us with things we may not conceive of.
It is only when everything, even love fails that with a flash, man finds out how vain, how dream-like is this world. Then he catches a glimpse of the beyond. It is only by giving up this world that the other comes, never through holding on to this one.
It is necessary to study the mind itself, mind studying mind. We know that there is the power of the mind called reflective. I am talking to you… at the same time I am standing aside, as it were, a second person, and knowing and hearing that I am talking. You work and think at the same time, another portion of your mind stands by and sees that you are talking. The powers of the mind should be concentrated and turned back upon itself, and as the darkest places reveal their secrets before the penetrating rays of the sun, so will this concentrated mind penetrate its own innermost secrets… it will all be revealed to us.

It is merely that when a man has found something which he prefers to life, he then for the first time begins to live.
The center of every man’s existence is a dream. Death, disease, and insanity are merely material accidents, like a toothache or a twisted ankle. That these brutal forces always besiege and often capture the citadel does not prove that they are the citadel.
The whole world belongs to Asga Ya Galun Lati, the Great Spirit.
In society as it is now constituted, all the established rules have so many mechanical duties, while real duty consists in obeying the laws of our own being.
The idea of God is the idea of our own spiritual natures enlarged to infinity.
In this patient, though uncheered obedience, we become prepared for light. The soul gathers force.
Wisdom is so kind and wise that wherever you may look you can learn something about God. Why would not the omnipresent teach that way?
It is better that one should not vow rather than to vow and not pay.
This mystical perception seems to be one in which all the senses unite into one.
