Hanuman, the devotee of Rama, said: When I identify myself with the body, O Lord, I am Thy creature, eternally separate from Thee. When I identify myself with the soul, I am a spark of that Divine Fire which Thou art. But when I identify myself with the Atman, I and Thou art one.
You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.
We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves.
Doing is very good, but that comes from thinking… fill the brain, therefore, with high thoughts, highest ideals; place them day and night before you; and out of that will come great work.
