The same boiling water that softens potatoes
hardens eggs.
Its all about what you are made of
not your circumstances.

Religion is for people
who are afraid of going to hell.
Spirituality is for those
who have already been there.

सत्यम् ब्रूयात् प्रियम् ब्रूयात् न ब्रूयात् सत्यमप्रियम् |
प्रियम् नानृतं ब्रूयात् एष धर्मः सनातनः ||

satyam bruyat priyam bruyat na bruyat satyam apriyam
priyam ca nanrutam bruyat esha dharmah sanatanah

Speak truth in such a way that it should be pleasing to others. Never speak truth, which is unpleasant to others. Never speak untruth, which might be pleasant. This is the path of eternal morality, sanatana dharma.

पुण्यस्य फलमिच्छन्ति पुण्यं नेच्छन्ति मानवाः
न पापफलमिच्छन्ति पापं कुर्वन्ति यत्नतः

puNyasya phalamichChanti puNyaM nechChanti maanavaaH
na paapaphalamichChanti paapaM kurvanti yatnataH

People like the fruits of virtuous deeds, but not the virtuous deeds! They naturally do not like/want the fruits of sinful actions, but mostly engage in such deeds with sincere efforts!

Mahabhaarata. Subhaashita
॥ शांतमात्मनि तिष्ट ॥
Remain quietly in the Self.

काकः कृष्णः पिकः कृष्णः को भेदः पिककाकयोः
वसन्तकाले संप्राप्ते काकः काकः पिकः पिकः

kaakaH kRuShNaH pikaH kRuShNaH ko bhedaH pikakaakayoH
vasantakaale saMpraapte kaakaH kaakaH pikaH pikaH

Crow is black, nightingale is black... what's the difference between the two. Come spring, a crow is a crow, a nightingale is a nightingale.

In appearance, a crow and a nightingale aren't very different. A crow is black and so is a nightingale. How can we tell the difference? It doesn't matter... Come spring, the difference automatically becomes evident! While a nightingale sings melodiously, a crow, well..., crows. The crow can hang out with the nightingale, try to eat like him or fly like him. These would be external imitations. But the true nature of a nightingale is its sweet voice. That is unimitable by a crow.  (A crow is special in its own way and contributes in ways he was made for!)

Subhashita.

Whenever I have read any part of the Vedas, I have felt that some unearthly and unknown light illuminated me. In the great teaching of the Vedas, there is no touch of sectarianism. It is of all ages, climbs, and nationalities and is the royal road for the attainment of the Great Knowledge. When I read it, I feel that I am under the spangled heavens of a summer night.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
