When you seek God, seek Him in your heart – He is not in Jerusalem, nor in Mecca, nor in the hajj.
~ Yunus Emre
Religion is the finger pointing to God. People are too busy licking the finger to notice where it’s pointing.
~ Anthony de Mello
The body is a tent which for a time does the pure soul with kingly presence grace. When he departs, the tent-pitcher strikes it, and moves to a new halting place.
~ Omar Khayyam
Everything God created is good. We were all created pure, as pure souls made out of light. God didn’t create any bad people. He pushed out all the darkness and kept all the goodness. So, tell yourself, ‘Now, if I bring in the darkness, I’ll just be taking back what God pushed away. But if I can avoid doing that, nothing but goodness will remain in me.’ Therefore, the question to ask is: ‘Since we were all created good, can I stay good? Can I be good?’ That’s what every human being should strive for.
~ M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen
This world is like a mountain.
Your echo depends on you.
If you scream good things, the world will give it back.
If you scream bad things, the world will give it back.
Even if someone speaks badly about you,
Speak good things about him.
Change your heart to change the world.
~ Shams Tabrizi
Reject the companionship of anyone who does not increase your goodness on a daily basis.
