My soul is from elsewhere, Iím sure of that, and I intend to end up there.
We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls.

This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.
God is a concept by which we measure our pain.
Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence. Love others as well as you love yourself.
