The happiness which comes from long practice, which leads to the end of suffering, which at first is like poison, but at last like nectar - this kind of happiness arises from the serenity of one's own mind
Be free from fear. Be fearless and have faith in the divine.
It is true that the mind is restless and difficult to control. But it can be conquered, through regular practice and detachment. Those who lack self-control will find it difficult to progress in meditation; but those who are self-controlled, striving earnestly through the right means, will attain the goal.
Whatever you do, make it an offering to me - the food you eat, the sacrifices you make, the help you give, even your sufferings.
Edward T. Hall
