When you pray for anyone you tend to modify your personal attitude toward him.
There is a justifiable reaction against a type of religion which imposed rigid restrictions on any kind of rational enjoyment, while it left men free to exploit one another and to make life hideous in the race for wealth.
I'm not into organized religion. I'm into believing in a higher source of creation, realizing we're all just part of nature.
The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
Scientist believe in things, not in persons
Who is the most favoured of God? He from whom the greatest good comes to His creatures.
Fearlessness is a result of faith in oneself and faith in God.
Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be the sons of God.
It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven

Once you have surrendered yourself, you make yourself receptive. In receiving from God, you are perfected and completed.
To withdraw is not to run away - and to stay is no wise action - when there's more reason to fear than to hope.

God does not work for you, He works with you.
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.
Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world
I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.
