Swami Kriyananda – Pearls of Wisdom

The sex instinct is a holy force, not something to be ashamed of. But being one of the strongest impulses in human nature it can overtake our finer emotions and drain the energy. So enjoy in moderation and let the act be one of love and bliss.
If you want to work in harmony with others, let them have their own space to come around in their own way, and in their own time.
Ego by itself cannot get out of delusion; it is already infected by the disease it wants to cure. To overcome ego, get rid of separateness.
