I’ve seen quite a few Amma quotes recently that I have wanted to share. I decided I would put them all in one post!
Having the freedom to decide how to act, we should exercise the faculty of discrimination to choose the right actions and attitude.
Pray: Let the music of peace and harmony be heard everywhere.
It is pure love and selfless service that sustains this universe.
We must cultivate a spiritual culture that respects and worships the sanctity of all beings.
Patience, constant enthusiasm and firm determination are necessary factors for success.
My daughter sent me a quote a few days ago that made me laugh, but it also made me think. I have found it helpful and so have some of the people to whom I have sent it. I tried to track down the author but have been unsuccessful in that endeavor.
I’ve also noticed that the quote comes in several forms. I have decided to share it even though I don’t know who wrote it…. because of the importance of the message. I am using the form that I was sent and that I like the best.
Your grandparents were called to war.
You’re being called to sit on your couch.
You can do this.
Pure love makes you feel as light as a flower.
You won’t feel any heaviness or burden. Ego creates the burden.
If you wish to serve, if you have compassion for people,
if you have any love for the world, step forward bravely.
Amma will be in Oakland from November 22-26 and in Detroit from November 29 to December 2. For more information go to: https://amma.org/meeting-amma/ammas-north-america-tour.
Instead of cursing the darkness, let each one of us light a small lamp. Isn’t it because of darkness that we know the greatness of light?
Do not worry; the darkness cannot remain for long. Always remember that after every night, there is a dawn. Let us never lose our optimistic faith.
