I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true.
I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have.
I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.

And seek the face of the Lord always, that in patience ye may possess your souls, and ye shall have eternal life.

Somebody said that it couldn't be done,
But he with a chuckle replied
That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one
Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried.

Nothing before, nothing behind;
the steps of faith fall on the seeming void
and find the rock beneath.

Money can't buy happiness.
Money can buy sense gratification, but not actual happiness or satisfaction.
The body and individual body parts are valuable only so long as a self can use them. If there is no self who can use the body, then it is of no value. - Jagad Guru Speaks Author: Jagad Guru, Source: http://www.jagadguruchrisbutler.com
In Calcutta, India, for example, we can see the ridiculous sight of a starving, sore-infested man meditating on the side of the road: “I am God. I am God.” In America and Europe, you'll find many so-called yogis and gurus who are directly or indirectly in Shankaracharya's line of “I am God”ism teachers.Author: Jagad Guru, Source: http://www.jagadgurusiddhaswarupanandaparamahamsa.com
Animals eat and humans eat. Animals sleep and humans sleep. Animals mate and humans mate. Animals defend and fight and so do humans. But human beings also possess the faculty for enquiring into and understanding the Absolute Truth. Humans have a faculty for spiritual growth. Humans can ask, "Who am I? What is the purpose of my existence?" If we utilize this faculty for spiritual realization then we are truly human beings. If we don't, if we simply concern ourselves with eating, sleeping, sex and fighting, then are we not human in name only?Author: Jagad Guru Chris Butler, Source: http://www.jagad-guru-chris-butler.com/transcripts
It is natural for us to want to be happy, satisfied, and free. But due to ignorance of our true identity, our natural longing becomes misdirected and leads to further bondage and unhappiness.Author: Jagad Guru Chris Butler, Source: http://www.jagadgurusiddhaswarupananda.net/component/option,co...
