    Feeling, whilst going about, that he is a wave of the ocean of SELF; whilst
    sitting, that he is a bead strung on the thread of universal consciousness; whilst perceiving objects of sense, that he is realizing himself by perceiving the SELF; and, whilst sleeping, that he is drowned in the ocean of bliss; — he who, inwardly constant, spends his whole life thus is, amongst all men, the real seeker of liberation. — SHANKARACHARYA

    He is steadfast in heart and absorbed in Brahman and outwardly pursues the normal worldly activities of life. He does not direct his senses towards anything; he is not afraid of the objects of the senses and he does not omit to perform any obligatory action as a duty. — DNYANESHWARI

    May 16 , 2019 Weekly Theme for Contemplation: Karma and Self-Mastery
    Let your mind be quiet, realising the beauty of the world, and the immense, the boundless treasures that it holds in store. All that you have within you, all that your heart desires, all that your Nature so specially fits you for — that or the counterpart of it waits embedded in the great Whole, for you. It will surely come to you. — EDWARD CARPENTER
