ALL KNOWLEDGE AND ALL POWER ARE WITHIN AND NOT WITHOUT.
Until we give up the world manufactured by the ego, never can we enter the kingdom of heaven. None ever did, none ever will. To give up the world is to forget the ego, to know it not at all------------living in the body, but not of it. This rascal ego must be obliterated. Power to help mankind is with the silent ones who only live and love and withdraw their own personality entirely.
No power in the universe can withhold from any one anything he really deserves.
That purity which is the goal of work is realizable only through doing good to others.
If in this hell of a world one can bring a little joy and peace even for a day into the heart of a single person, that much alone is true, this I have learnt after suffering all my life; all else is mere moonshine.
Down with all sloth, down with all enjoyments here or hereafter.
This world is a huge lunatic asylum where all men are mad, some after money, some after women, some after name or fame, and a few after God.
WORK! BE UNATTACHED! THAT IS THE WHOLE SECRET.
BE BRAVE AND BE SNCERE; THEN FOLLOW ANY PATH WITH DEVOTION, AND YOU MUST REACH THE WHOLE.
The Importance of Being Unattached.
Work for them, love them, do good to them, sacrifice a hundred lives, if need be, for them, BUT NEVER BE ATTACHED.
Be at peace. Do not disturb yourself. You never were in bondage, you never were virtuous or sinful.
