Opposition You Have Encountered

Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.

Don’t Wait For Tomorrow

Gravity is not responsible for people to fall in love. It just happens.
And when it does happen, don’t wait for the right time to express,
because right time is when your heart beats faster.

If you love someone.. don’t wait for tomorrow, or for the other person to make the move.

Agreed ‘Tomorrow never dies’, but also remember… ’Tomorrow never comes, so live in today.’

This Is the Real Me

Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, "This is the real me," and when you have found that attitude, follow it.

A Special Friend

Sometimes in life, you find a special friend;
Someone who changes your life
just by being part of it.

Someone who makes you laugh
until you can't stop;

Someone who makes you believe
that there really is good in the world.

Someone who convinces you
that there really is an unlocked door
just waiting for you to open it.

Remain True

Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow delightful conditions, all heavenly environment; of these if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built..

Know How to Do It

Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it.

- David Starr Jordan

Devote Yourself

So many people walk around with a meaningless life.
They seem half-sleep, even when they're busy
doing things they think are important.
This is because they're chasing the wrong things.

The way you get meaning into your life
is to devote yourself to loving others,
devote yourself to your community around you,
and devote yourself to creating something
that gives you purpose and meaning.

- Kaoru

To have tolerance means to be stable. When one is faced with defamation or insult, tolerance gives the power to be stable and cool. And so there is the ability to smile even when there is negativity that comes. Tolerance means to see beyond the insults because of being stable in the stage of self-respect. When faced with criticism, if we are able to be stable in our stage of self-respect, we are able to learn from every negative remark that comes our way. We will never become defensive, but will be able to see clearly what new learning we could take.

- Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu.


Life is not easy for any of us, but what of that? We must
have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves.

The Nature of Things

The world is a current of change. Everything is moving and eventually falls away. We cannot hold onto anything in this world. When the mind tries to hold on, going against the nature of things, there is suffering.

Live in Joy

Live in Joy, In love,
Even among those who hate.

Live in joy, In health,
Even among the afflicted.

Live in joy, In peace,
Even among the troubled.

Look within. Be still.
Free from fear and attachment,
Know the sweet joy of living in the way.

There is no fire like greed,
No crime like hatred,
No sorrow like separation,
No sickness like hunger of heart,
And no joy like the joy of freedom.

Health, contentment and trust
Are your greatest possessions,
And freedom your greatest joy.

Look within. Be still.
Free from fear and attachment,
Know the sweet joy of living in the way.

- Buddha

To go against the dominant thinking of your friends, of most of the people you see every day, is perhaps the most difficult act of heroism you can perform.
