Spiritual Inspiration Quotes

If we are pure at heart, we would not wish one person well and not another. We should see there is no difference between one person or another. Then our pure thoughts can be evenly spread between all people. Sunshine can reflect on clean water but not on dirty water. God’s light will be reflected by those persons with a pure heart. –Hari Dass
If one can see stillness in action, and action in stillness, one is the wise one among man. Although he might be still carrying out many kinds of activities in this world, he has already attain the very high level. –Bhagavad-gita

If one is not effected by the never ending stream of desires, in the same way the ocean remains constant despite a never ending flow of water from many rivers, one can achieve peace in the mind which can never be achieved if one still wants to satisfy his desires. –Bhagavad-gita
If we don’t love ourselves, we would not love others. When someone tell you to love others first, and to love others more than ourselves; it is impossible. If you can’t love yourselves, you can’t love anybody else. Therefore we must gather up our great power so that we know in what ways we are good, what special abilities we have, what wisdom, what kind of talent we have, and how big our love is. When we can recognize our virtues, we can learn how to love others. –The Supreme Master Ching Hai
We are always learning from each others. Only when we merge inside God would we stop learning. We will understand more as we teach others, so we rely on teaching in order to learn for ourselves. –Hari Dass
Our bodies, speeches and minds need to be trained so that they will do anything we want. We can cry or laugh at once when we want to. Then it will be a natural response; we will cry when it is time to cry, and laugh when we should laugh. Do you understand? We can get angry when necessary; we can be gentle if we have to. We will completely become our own master. Then, no matter what we want to do, it will benefit the world. It is not difficult to attain this stage; all we need to do is to mediate. –The Supreme Master Ching Hai
During meditation, if we can concentrate all our attention on one point, and put all problems in front of it, then they can be solved immediately. Our power is great, but we never use it. If we do not use our power by concentrating on it, then it seems we do not have any power at all. –The Supreme Master Ching Hai 
Sometimes, if we are faced with obstacles, be they tangible or not, such as jealousy, worldly sentiment, greed, hatred or obsession, etc., there is no other way to overcome them except by practicing more diligently. You need to read Master’s books and to listen to Master’s tapes more often, meditate more, do Quan Yin more, put more effort into your practice and concentrate more on the path of practice. It is safe only when you are sheltered by the supreme power, no other way. –The Supreme Master Ching Hai
Sometimes, after you have taken part in a seven, one or two-day retreat, you could feel that your level of practice had risen. That was because we had given our undivided attention to breaking through our level of practice. We knew that was the sole purpose of coming to a retreat here, so our levels were uplifted and our karma left behind. –The Supreme Master Ching Hai
Those who believe in truth and justice and have a high morality are not vulnerable, as God will look after them. –Koran
Only by spiritual practice can we break through our karma and the effects of the causes we have made. Only then can we escape from them. It matters not whether you have acquired any merit. Merit is merit. Karma is karma. Nonetheless, if one practices the Quan Yin Method, one can be liberated regardless of having any merit or not. It is so logical, so scientific. –The Supreme Master Ching Hai 
It can causes us great trouble if we do not handle our worldly love carefully. Of course we can love someone. If we use our love to help and encourage each other, to cultivate our aspiration to practice the path of Truth and thus uplift the level of our practice, then it is fine. However, if in order to love someone, no matter how good or beautiful that person may be, we have to keep on reincarnating in this bitter sea of suffering, then it is not worth it at all. This is how there is a good and bad side to loving someone. Anything has a light and a dark side and depending on which side you use, the result will be good or bad for you. -The Supreme Master Ching Hai

Good morning

Success is a tasty dish.
Patience, intelligence, knowledge and experience are its ‘Ingredients’.
But “Hard Work” is that little Salt that makes it ‘Delicious’.
Have a successful day!


GOD IS AT THE WINDOW There was a little boy visiting his grandparents on their farm. He was given a slingshot to play with out in the woods.
He practiced in the woods; but he could never hit the target. Getting a little discouraged, he headed back for dinner… As he was walking back he saw Grandma’s pet duck.
Just out of impulse, he let the slingshot fly, hit the duck square in the head and killed it. He was shocked and grieved! In a panic, he hid the dead duck in the wood pile; only to see his Sister watching! Sally had seen it all, but she said nothing. After lunch the next day Grandma said, ‘Sally, let’s wash the dishes’ But Sally said, ‘Grandma, Johnny told me he wanted to help in the kitchen.
‘ Then she whispered to him, “Remember the duck?’ So Johnny did the dishes. Later that day, Grandpa asked if the children wanted to go fishing and Grandma said, ‘I’m sorry but I need Sally to help make supper.’ Sally just smiled and said, ‘well that’s all right because Johnny told me he wanted to help?
She whispered again, ‘Remember the duck?’ So Sally went fishing and Johnny stayed to help. After several days of Johnny doing both his chores and Sally’s; he Finally couldn’t stand it any longer. He came to Grandma and confessed that he had killed the duck.
Grandma knelt down, gave him a hug and said, ‘Sweetheart, I know. You see, I was standing at the window and I saw the whole thing, but because I love you, I forgave you. I was just wondering how long you would let Sally make a slave of you.’ Thought for the day and every day thereafter:
Whatever is in your past, whatever you have done…? And the devil keeps throwing it up in your face (lying, cheating, debt, fear, bad habits, hatred, anger, bitterness, etc…)…whatever it is..You need to know that:
God was standing at the window and He saw the whole thing. He has seen your whole life… He wants you to know that He loves you and that you are forgiven.
He’s just wondering how long you will let the devil make a slave of you.. The great thing about God is that when you ask for forgiveness;
He not only forgives you, but He forgets. It is by God’s grace and mercy that we are saved. Go ahead and make the difference in someone’s life today.
Share this with a friend and always remember: God is at the window!
