Neither from itself nor from another,
Nor from both,
Nor without a cause,
Does anything whatever, anywhere arise
Unity can only be manifested by the Binary. Unity itself and the idea of Unity are already two.
If a man who has committed many sins, does not repent and purify his heart of evil, retribution will come upon his person as sure as the streams runs into the ocean which becomes ever deeper and wider. If a man who has committed sins, come to the knowledge of it, reforms himself, and practises goodness, the force of retribution will gradually exhaust itself as a disease gradually loses its baneful influence when the patient perspires.
Crave for a thing, you will get it. Renounce the craving, the object will follow you by itself.
By Swami Sivananda
Those who have passions are never able to preceive the Way; for it is like stirring up clear water with hands; people may come there wishing to find a reflection of their faces, which, however, they will never see. A mind troubled and vexed with the passions is impure, and on that account it never sees the Way. O monks, do away with passions. When the dirt of passion is removed the Way will manifest itself.
You cannot travel the path until you have become the path itself.
