Sri Prahlada said:
'To listen, to sing, to remember Vishnu, to attend to His feet,
to offer worship and prayers, to become a servant, to be His best friend
and to surrender one's heart and soul.
This is the way one should relate to the Supreme Lord.
That I consider the best that one can learn.'

Srimad Bhagavata
Book 7,Chapter 5 23,24

When I decided to surrender myself,
What matters what went and what remained?
Thou, who showers Thine Grace
Unintermittent as unto mother.
Thou, Cloud of Bliss rising from the Ocean of Compassion!
Thou, my Lord, pray, speak!

In this path He is my guide;
When i look for love He is my enchanter.
At the feast He is my wine and my sweets;
In the garden He is the scent of jasmine.

Don't ask me about prayer rocks-
Anyplace i put my head is a prayer rock.
Don't talk of direction-
All six directions face Him.
Gardens,flames,nightingales,
whirling dance,and brotherhood-
Throw all these away
and trow yourself into His love.

Mevlana Rumi

In every winter's heart there is a quivering spring,
and behind the veil of each night
there is a shining dawn.

Khalil Gibran

I existed from all eternity and,
Behold,I am here;
And I shall exist till the end of time,
For my being has no end.

I will be waiting here....
For your silence to break,
For your soul to shake,
For your love to wake!

There are two Beings (Purushas) in the cosmos, the destructible and the indestructible.
The creatures are the destructible, the Kutastha is the indestructible.
But there exists Another, the Highest Being, designated the "Supreme Spirit"
-the Eternal Lord who, permeating the three worlds,
upholds them.

Bhagavad Gita
Chapter 15, verses 16?17;
by Paramahansa Yogananda

How mistaken are those people who seek happiness outside of themselves,
in foreign lands and journeys, in riches and glory, in great possessions and pleasures,
in diversions and vain things, which have a bitter end!
In the same thing to construct the tower of happiness outside of ourselves
as it is to build a house in a place that is consistently shaken by earthquakes.
Happiness is found within ourselves, and blessed is the man who has understood this.
Happiness is a pure heart, for such a heart becomes the throne of God.
Thus says Christ of those who have pure hearts:

"I will visit them, and will walk in them, and I will be a God to them, and they will be my people."

What can be lacking to them? Nothing, nothing at all! For they have the greatest good in their hearts:
God Himself!

O Love,the divine fullness of my heart!
O Love,the endless embrace of my Spirit!
O Love,the true face of God!
O Love,quietly you are taking my Soul!
O Love,true and unbroken!

Love,you spread peace among people!
You make this earth a Heaven!
You unite people with the Angels!
You offer our God our prayers!
You overcome everything!
You come before everything!
It is you Love who truly rules this universe!
You are the one who holds everything and saves everything!

St. Nectarios of Aegina

The Christ is risen!!!

Jesus called a little child to stand among them.
"Truly I tell you, He said, "unless you change and become like little children,
you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this little child
is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
And whoever welcomes a little child like this in My name welcomes Me."

Matthew 18:3,4,5

Leave your self

When you do things from your soul,
you feel a river moving in you, a joy.

When actions come from another section,
the feeling disappears.

Don't let others lead you. They may be blind or, worse, vultures.

Reach for the rope of God. And what is that?
Putting aside self-will.

Because of willfulness people sit in jail,
the trapped bird?s wings are tied,
fish sizzle in the skillet.

The anger of police is willfulness. You've seen a magistrate
inflict visible punishment.

Now see the invisible. If you could leave your selfishness, you
would see how you've been torturing your soul.
We are born and live inside black water in a well.

How could we know what an open field of sunlight is?

Don't insist on going where you think you want to go.
 Ask the way to the spring.
Your living pieces will form a harmony.

There is a moving palace that floats in the air
with balconies and clear water flowing through,
 infinity everywhere, yet contained under a single tent.

Rumi

How often you ask,
what is my path?
What is my cure?
He has made you
a seeker of unity,
isn't that enough?


Rumi
