Those who see the Invisible can do the impossible – Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa

It is the mind that makes one wise or ignorant, bound or emancipated.
Those who see the Invisible can do the impossible.
If the devotee is sincere, then God, who is the Inner Guide of all, will certainly reveal to the devotee His true nature.
The winds of grace are always blowing but we must raise our sails.
If you meditate on your ideal, you will acquire its nature.
Do all your duties, but keep your mind on God.
If you must be mad, be it not for the things of the world. Be mad with the love of God.
Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa
