Religious Thought 144

May the Lord of Love, who projects himself Into this universe of myriad forms, From whom all beings come and to whom all Return, grant us the grace of wisdom. He is fire and the sun, and the moon And the stars. He is the air and the sea, And the Creator, Prajapati. He is this boy, he is that girl, he is This man, he is that woman, and he is This old man, too, tottering on his staff. His face is everywhere.
- Shvetashvatara Upanishad

There are thousands upon thousands of students who have practiced meditation and obtained its fruits. Do not doubt its possibilities because of the simplicity of the method. If you cannot find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?
- The Practice of Meditation, Zen Master Dogen

The Almighty Allah says, "When a servant thinks of Me, I am near. When he invokes Me, I am with him. If he reflects on Me in secret, I reply in secret, And if he acknowledges Me in an assembly, I acknowledge him in a far superior assembly."
- Hadith The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as reported by Abu Hurairah

One dream role is Jesus. The other dream role is just the opposite, somebody very dark who is searching for the light within themselves. Because it's always about finding that light. And the light is goodness.
Blair Underwood

Who is rich? One who is happy with what he has.
- Ethics of the Fathers 4:1
