Our purpose


"You are not here merely to make a living. 
You are here in order to enable the world
to live more amply, with greater vision, 
with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. 
You are here to enrich the world, and you 
impoverish yourself if you forget the 
errand." 

Woodrow Wilson

On rejoicing and happiness


"Whenever you hear that someone else has been successful, rejoice. Always practice rejoicing for others--whether your friend or your enemy. If you cannot practice rejoicing, no matter how long you live, you will not be happy."

Lama Zopa Rinpoche

On dreams...


"A dream is a manifestation. Just like what you live is a manifestation, 
but a dream is quicker and easier to achieve, and not so troublesome 
if there's something you don't want."

Esther Hicks (Abraham)

Worship from the heart?


"We had no churches, no religious organizations, no sabbath day, no holidays, and yet we worshiped. Sometimes the whole tribe would assemble and sing and pray; sometimes a smaller number, perhaps only two or three. The songs had a few words, but were not formal. The singer would occasionally put in such words as he wished instead of the usual tone sound. Sometimes we prayed in silence; sometimes each prayed aloud; sometimes an aged person prayed for all of us. At other times one would rise and speak to us of our duties to each other and to listen. Our services were short."

say something."

Plato

On Music...


"Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, 
wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, 
and charm and gaiety to life and to everything."

Plato

Knowledge...


"It is paradoxical, yet true, to say, that the more we know, the more ignorant we become in the absolute sense, for it is only through enlightenment that we become conscious of our limitations. Precisely one of the most gratifying results of intellectual evolution is the continuous opening up of new and greater prospects."

 Nikola Tesla

Oneness...


“Quantum theory thus reveals a basic oneness of the universe. It shows that we cannot decompose the world into independently existing smallest units. As we penetrate into matter, nature does not show us any isolated "building blocks," but rather appears as a complicated web of relations between the various parts of the whole. These relations always include the observer in an essential way. The human observer constitute the final link in the chain of observational processes, and the properties of any atomic object can be understood only in terms of the object's interaction with the observer.”

Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism

The human experience...


"You cannot, in human experience, rush into the 
light. You have to go through the twilight into the 
broadening day before the noon comes and the full 
sun is upon the landscape." 

Woodrow Wilson*

*Was an American politician and academic who served as the 28th President of the United States from 1913 to 1921.

Be happy!


"Be happy for this moment,
This moment is your life"

Old world saying

Fly


Strength like that of an elephant
Gentle like a blossoming flower
Intense as the brightest galaxy
Still yet in constant motion
A life, a flash, a moment
Changing and yet eternal
So why don’t you fly?

Somwang

And then you have to play better than anyone else."

On Courage...

courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen."

Winston Churchill

On problems...


"Our problems are man-made, therefore they may be solved by man.
And man can be as big as he wants. No problem of human destiny
is beyond human beings."

John F. Kennedy
