You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens.
And so it is, that both the devil and the angelic spirits present us with objects of desire to awaken our power of choice.
Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.
Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
These pains you feel are messengers. Listen to them.
I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my Soul.
You who seek God apart, apart. The thing you seek, thou art, thou art. If you want to seek the Beloved’s face. Polish the mirror, gaze into that space.

Quote: Of all the beautiful truths that have been restored and brought to light in this age, none will promise you more joy and blessedness in mind and spirit than this – that you are the master of your thoughts, the molder of your character, and the maker and shaper of your condition, your environment, and your destiny.
Book Name: Winter’s Tale
Author: Mark Helprin
Quote: Nothing is random, nor will anything ever be …
In the end, or rather, as things really are, any event, no matter how small, is intimately and sensibly tied to all others …
And, when all is perceived in such a way as to obviate time, justice becomes apparent not as something that will be, but something that is.

Book Name: The Cost of Living
Author: Arundhati Roy
Quote: To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance.
To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you.
To seek joy in the saddest of places. To pursue beauty to its lair.
To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple.
To respect strength, never power.
Above all to watch. To try and understand. To never look away.
And never, never to forget.
