One from Sai Baba
Aspirants are engaged in contemplation of the Lord (Sarveswara-chinthana) as ceaselessly as the waves of the sea; they accumulate the wealth of equality and equal love to all, and are content in the thought that all is the Lord’s and nothing is theirs. Unlike the regular person, the spiritual seeker won’t easily bend before grief or loss, anger or hatred or selfishness, hunger, thirst or fickleness. One should master all the above good things as much as possible and journey through life in fortitude, courage, joy, peace, charity, and humility. Realising that tending the body is not all-important, one has to bear even hunger and thirst patiently and be engaged uninterruptedly in contemplation of the Lord. Quarreling at every tiny little thing, losing one’s temper, becoming sad at the slightest provocation, getting angry at the smallest insult, worried at thirst, hunger, and loss of sleep — these can never be the characteristics of an aspirant.

If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.

Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that
has crushed it.

The reason this course is simple is because truth is simple.
Complexity is of the ego, and is nothing more than the ego's attempt
to obscure the obvious.

-From 'A Course In Miracles' (ACIM)

“Spiritual practice doesn’t end when one leaves
the silence of the church, temple, or meditation room.
...
Rightly understood, every situation, no matter how ordinary or
how difficult, is another opportunity for offering devotion and
a spirit of service to God.”

—Swami Kriyananda

A thought is an arrow shot at the truth; it can hit a point,
but not cover the whole target.
But the archer is too well satisfied with his success
to ask anything farther.


Sri Aurobindo
