When new students came to Pythagoras, the very first lesson they heard was "Learn to be silent. Let your quiet mind listen and absorb." We try to reassure ourselves with our human thoughts, but mental gymnastics cannot help us and we know it. Trying to uplift ourselves with conditioned ideas is like trying to get upstairs by pacing around the basement. A new kind of mind is needed.

This is to have succeeded. Emerson

And, mingling with Truth among the flowers, I have forgotten what to say. Liu Chang-Ching
There is a vitality, a life-force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in any one time, this expression is unique and if you block it, it will never exist... and the world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how it compares with other expressions... it is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. Agnes de Mille
