People are so identified with the body that they miss the Reality – Mata Amritanandamayi Devi

Love is the only medicine that can heal the wounds of the world. In this universe, it is love that binds everything together. As this awareness dawns within us, all disharmony will cease. Abiding peace alone will reign.

Worrying about the future, you are unable to enjoy the present.

To finish off reason is the place of reasoning in spirituality.

Intellect cannot experience love, for love is silence. Intellect is always noisy. Only faith can know love. Faith is in the heart. Therefore, only faith springing forth from the heart can imbibe the silence of love.

The mind full of thought is ignorance; the same mind devoid of thought is Atman, the Self. People are so identified with the body that they miss the Reality, the Essential Principle. They see the waves and forget about the ocean. They see only the clouds and miss the vast expansive sky. They see the flower and fall in love with it, but they overlook the plant. The waves come and go, appear and disappear, but the ocean remains the same. The same can be said about the clouds in the sky and the flower on the plant. People miss the Reality, the Substratum, which is the enlivening principle, and this is a big loss. To forget it is the biggest loss.
