“Before you tell your life what you intend to do with it,
listen for what it intends to do with you.

The soul speaks its truth only under quiet, inviting,
and trustworthy conditions.”

Parker Palmer,
“Let Your Life Speak”


“Always when you go into the temple of your being with a listening attitude, something takes place which we call realization and an outer harmony is revealed. You do not go within to tell God your desires or to outline the condition of thought to be changed – only to listen, to be receptive to the voice of Truth.”

Joel S. Goldsmith,
“Spiritual Interpretation of Scripture”


“A quiet mind is all you need. All else will happen rightly, once your mind is quiet. As the sun on rising makes the world active, so does self-awareness affect changes in the mind. In the light of calm and steady self-awareness inner energies wake up and work miracles without any effort on your part.”

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj


There is no need to run outside
For better seeing,
Nor peer from a window.
Rather abide
At the center of your being;
For the more you leave it, the less you learn.



“We contemplate Spiritual truth in order to move beyond an intellectual understanding of the words to an embodiment of them. An intuitive knowing is developed… a knowing that is transformative.”
