THE VOICE OF THE SILENCE
But within thy body –the shrine of they sensations –seek in the Impersonal for the “Eternal Man”; and having sought him out, look inward; thou art Buddha.
BHAGAVAD-GITAThe man of meditation as thus described is superior to the man of penance and to the man of learning and also to the man of action; wherefore, O Arjuna resolve thou to become a man of meditation
LIGHT ON THE PATH
Look for it and listen to it first in your own heart. At first you may say it is not there; when I search I find only discord. Look deeper. If again you are disappointed, pause and look deeper again. There is a natural melody, an obscure fount in every human heart. It may be hidden over and utterly concealed and silenced — but it is there. At the very base of your nature you will find faith, hope, and love. He that chooses evil refuses to look within himself, shuts his ears to the melody of his heart, as he blinds his eyes to the light of his soul. He does this because he finds it easier to live in desires. But underneath all life is the strong current that cannot be checked; the great waters are there in reality.
