When I understood and accepted my own darkness, I was consumed by my own light.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
And he that shuts out love, in turn shall be shut out from love, and on her threshold lie howling in outer darkness.
Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread.
Marriage is not just spiritual communion, it is also remembering to take out the trash.
Is it not by love alone that we succeed in penetrating to the very essence of being?
To see the universal and all pervading Spirit of Truth face to face, one must be able to love the meanest of all creation as oneself.
If you do a good deed for other people you will end up healing yourself too. Because a dose of love is the best spiritual cure.
Your love is like the lamp in the window that guides me home through the darkest night.
You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
