Meditation of the Day

July 4-

The type of courage which is induced in oneself by self-suggestion or by putting on an exaggeratedly brave front is really a mask of fear. Because you are afraid at heart,  you put on an air which suggests the opposite of fear. Such so-called courage does not last long.

-N. Sri Ram, Seeking Wisdom

No soul that aspires can ever fail to rise; no heart that loves can ever be abandoned. Difficulties exist only that in overcoming them we may grow strong, and they only who have suffered are able to save.

-Annie Besant, Some Difficulties of the Inner Life

There is a… road, steep and thorny, difficult to follow, but which the Great Ones of the human race have trodden. It is the quick road, but the difficult one. It is the road of self-conquest, the road of the giving up of self for the All. 

G. de Purucker, Golden Precepts    

July 27-  

The more decisions you are forced to make alone, the more aware you are of your own freedom to choose. I hold that we cannot be said to be aware of our minds, save under responsibility.

-Wilder, Ides
