Becoming too attached to one goal or one person may lead us to think only that goal or that person is right for us. Try to avoid getting stuck in this limiting mindset; we live in a world with multiple possibilities to choose from. When a goal does not work out, we can always set a new one. When a person does not like us, we can look for someone else. - Haemin Sunim
If you want to belong to an exceptional group, belong to yogis who seek higher consciousness. - - Sivananda Radha
Feed the poor. Clothe the naked, Comfort the distressed. Do actions as your duty. Do not expect any thanks or appreciation, applause, salute, for your work. Share what you have with others. Always scrutinize your inner motives. Annihilate all selfish motives. - Swami Sivananda
When you have spiritual friends, spiritual companions, spiritual associates, you live supported by their diligence and skillful qualities. - Buddha
Should anger become more ingrained through habituation, it will become increasingly difficult to bring the mind into states of calm and insight. - Bhikkhu Cintita
Greed, hatred and delusion, friend, make one blind, unseeing and ignorant; they destroy wisdom, are bound up with distress. - Buddha
If you are too obsessed with being perfect, you will never be able to start. If you don’t start, the task will seem increasingly insurmountable. Take the first step and relax. You can always improve it as you progress. - Haemin Sunim
Greed causes anxiety and restlessness, initially from not having what we desire, then later, if we have acquired what we desire, from knowing we will lose it, or from simply wanting more.
- Bhikkhu Cintita
Yoga is a method of strict discipline. It imposes restrictions on diet, sleep, company,
behavior, speech and thought. - Swami Sivananda
Lovingkindness, goodwill, and compassion naturally arise from our meditation practice, but feeling compassion is not the end of the path. The next step is love in action. - Devin Berry
