If we are all strong, stable, we can set our sail with any wind in the world that comes along. We make up our own direction. If we are not strong, we are like a leaf in the wind and the world's winds will take us where they wish, not where WE wish. So we meditate, every day, regularly, and gain transcendental being in our everyday life and then we are strong. When we are all infused with Being, we need not think which course is right, we just take the one that is automatically. Being is the wind-resister and the sail-setter.

It is enough that we are naturally helpful to others. What others think of us is not our concern - it is their concern. If we are weak, we will always put ourselves at the whims of others.

It is important only that we radiate life. Every individual must be a joy to himself, to his family, and to his society.

Life desires to be lived in the state of fulfillment.

Naturalness is the basis of effectiveness.
