Too many people condemn things they don't understand, mistaking a lack of grasp for a grasp of lack.
Sympathetic understanding is a spiritual discipline that can be transformative.
We’re here to expand our perspectives, our knowledge, our wisdom, our compassion, and thus our souls.
Depending on your outer circumstances for your inner peace is always a mistake. The turbulence of events around us can never produce the calm we need.
True peace comes from deep within, but can never bubble all the way to the surface if there are obstacles in the way. I should regularly ask what obstacles are in my heart.
The oasis within each of us needs cultivation. And only we can do the inner work to keep it in good condition.
Harmony strengthens. Disharmony weakens. A proper pursuit of truth, goodness, beauty, and unity is thus not unrelated to our other goals.
Souls can be tuned together, as we sometimes see on championship sports teams or, much more rarely, in business. Such harmony is peak power and a way of joy.
