The Cost of Freedom Is Love

Do not run away from difficulties and challenges because they provide us with an opportunity to experience the Supreme Truth.

The cost of freedom is love.

Only knowledge based on direct experience is helpful.

We will be in complete peace the day we connect with our inner self and discover Supreme Truth within and in all animate and inanimate outside.

We will see the path to peace when we drop ego, desires and attachments.
