Swami Vivekananda Teachings 1

Doing is very good, but that come 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.

If the mind is pleased with praise, it will be displeased with blame. All pleasures of the senses or even of the mind are evanescent; but within ourselves is the one true unrelated pleasure, dependent upon nothing. It is perfectly free, it is bliss. The more our bliss is within, the more spiritual we are.

First, have faith in yourselves. Know that though one may be a little bubble and another may be a mountain-high wave, yet behind both the bubble and the wave there is the infinite ocean.
