From Realising the Truth at the Centre of Life


Truth is not complicated, nor is the path to its realisation. The path can be summed up in three simple injunctions: turn within, calm the mind, focus the attention on the immutable principle underlying the mind. The supreme art of life is to live in such a way that we can turn within and find peace and inspiration at any time. It is a matter of practice.
From Actualising the Inner Light


When we set out on a path of inner development or self-training for a higher purpose, we discover, sooner or later, powers of leadership in ourselves. This does not mean the power to lead others. It means the power to effectively steer our own thoughts and emotions on our path to enlightenment.
