S elf-realization is the knowing in all parts of body, mind, and soul that you are now in possession of the kingdom of God; that you do not have to pray that it come to you; that God’s omnipresence is your omnipresence; and that all that you need to do is improve your knowing.

Learn the art of right living. If you have joy you have everything, so learn to be glad and contented. Have happiness now.












Y ou do not have to struggle to reach God, but you do have to struggle to tear away the self-created veil that hides him from you.












B e afraid of nothing. Hating none, giving love to all, feeling the love of God, seeing His presence in everyone, and having but one desire - for His constant presence in the temple of your consciousness - that is the way to live in this world.












R emain calm, serene, always in command of yourself. You will then find out how easy it is to get along.












T he season of failure is the best time for sowing the seeds of success.












K indness is the light that dissolves all walls between souls, families, and nations.












T he power of unfulfilled desires is the root of all man’s slavery












P ersistence guarantees that results are inevitable.












F orget the past, for it is gone from your domain. Forget the future, for it is beyond your reach. Control the present; live supremely well now. This is the way of the wise.












I f you permit your thoughts to dwell on evil, you yourself will become ugly. Look only for the good in everything so you absorb the quality of beauty.












T here is a magnet in your heart that will attract true friends. That magnet is unselfishness, thinking of others first; when you learn to live for others, they will live for you.












Y ou have come to earth to entertain and to be entertained.












L ive each moment completely and the future will take care of itself. Fully enjoy the wonder and beauty of each moment.












Y ou must not let your life run in the ordinary way; do something that nobody else has done, something that will dazzle the world. Show that God’s creative principle works in you.












B e as simple as you can be; you will be astonished to see how uncomplicated and happy your life can become.












L ive quietly in the moment and see the beauty of all before you. The future will take care of itself.












M aking others happy, through kindness of speech and sincerity of right advice, is a sign of true greatness. To hurt another soul by sarcastic words, looks, or suggestions, is despicable.












E very tomorrow is determined by every today.
