CHANGING YOUR MIND

“Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” – George Bernard Shaw “The man who never alters his opinion is like standing water, and breeds reptiles of the mind.” – William Blake “Like all weak men he laid an exaggerated stress on not changing one’s mind.” – W. Somerset Maugham “The snake which cannot cast its skin...

Truth

I maintain that truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. That is my point of view, and I adhere to that absolutely and unconditionally. Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or coerce people along a particular path. …...

Something is happening

Humanity has been sleeping-and still sleeps-lulled within the narrowly confining joys of its little closed loves. In the depths of the human multitude there slumbers an immense spiritual power which will manifest itself only when we have learnt how to break through the dividing walls of our egoism and raise ourselves up to an entirely new perspective, so that habitually and in a practical fashion...

Surrendering to Love

“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us. Something amazing happens...

People Can’t See Your Mind

“People can’t see your mind, what people see is a manifestation of your attitude in your actions of body and speech. So pay attention to your attitude all the time, guard it as if you are the police, or like a parent caring for a child, like a bodyguard, or as if you are the guru and your mind is your disciple.” —Lama Zopa Rinpoche   Help us keep LGIY! Radio up and...

A Pretty Song

From the complications of loving you I think there is no end or return. No answer, no coming out of it. Which is the only way to love, isn’t it? This isn’t a playground, this is earth, our heaven, for a while. Therefore I have given precedence to all my sudden, sullen dark moods that hold you in the center of my world. And I say to my body: grow thinner still. And I say to my fingers, type me...

Allow

“Now, everybody, get this: You don’t have to fight. You can allow. Allow, allow, allow. And then the transformation comes so rapidly that you don’t have to worry about it. The time you spend worrying about what will become of you if this or that happened is time that is wasted. It has never gained you anything, nor will it ever, except that you create from your worry and then you...

Patience

Above all, trust in the slow work of God, We are, quite naturally, impatient in everything to reach the end without delay. We should like to skip the intermediate stages. We are impatient of being on the way to something unknown, something new, And yet it is the law of all progress that it is made by passing through some stages of instability- And that it may take a very long time. And so I think...

Look Within

“The Spiritual Seeker is wise to look within and affirm that which they know is good and true, thus creating a state of readiness for whatever might happen. We are being challenged to fight against the tendency to be rigid and dogmatic so we can truly adapt and evolve. Progress will be attained through a willingness to try out new ideas, even if they don’t easily fit into the existing...
