quote 5607  |   Paramhansa Yogananda

I t is not your passing thoughts or brilliant ideas so much as your plain everyday habits that control your life. Live simply; don’t get caught in the machine of the world— it is too exacting. By the time you get what you are seeking your nerves are gone, the heart is damaged, and the bones are aching. Resolve to develop your spiritual powers more earnestly from now on. Learn the art of right living. If you have joy you have everything, so learn to be glad and contented. Have happiness now.
