I believe that being true to the self is the most important thing in life - to have a free heart, a pure soul and a pure mind. We all live, or should live, for the fulfillment of the self. We are all mirror images of each other; whatever we feel in ourselves we feel in others. I believe that we create our own lives... Intuition should play the main role in everything we do. Through the creative source of the mind and the unlimited power of the spirit all our deepest wishes come true. For me the meaning is that we are all one, and the only true reality is the spirit. Believing in the power of spirit is simply to have a passion for life, to learn, to grow, to evolve and most of all to love, and live each day and each moment of the day to the fullest.

No one wishes to be pitied for his mistakes.
When do we get angry at another person? When he does something against our wishes. Therefore if you give up your demands that others should behave towards you in a certain way, you will not get angry.
Every one wishes to have truth on his side, but it is not every one that sincerely wishes to be on the side of truth.
Wrath springs from thwarted desires. I do not expect anything from others, so their actions cannot be in opposition to wishes of mind.
Visualize, "prayerize," "actionize," and your wishes will come true.
The mind wishes for what it has missed, and occupies itself with retrospective contemplation.
Indeed, man wishes to be happy even when he so lives as to make happiness impossible.
He who wishes to fulfill his mission in the world must be a man of one idea, that is of one great overmastering purpose, overshadowing all his aims, and guiding and controlling his entire life.
