Words of Wisdom

In the French motel that we stayed at last night there was the phrase written on the walls - stencilled in quite a large script as part of the decor, not grafitti - "la meilleure façon de réaliser ses rêves est de se réveiller" (the best way to realise our dreams is to wake up).  Quite surprising to find such a profound pronouncement in such mundane a context!

I also just recently came across again Nirmala's idea that "truth opens the heart and quiets the mind" which I find quite a useful touchstone when dealing with life in general - when I'm awake enough to remember it ;-)

Just come across the connection that Gina Lake is Nirmala's wife! And a load of their books are available on Kindle Unlimited.

"Deep down in your heart know that all is well. Understand that the Universe is your friend and can never hurt you. It is the substratum of all existence which is love! When you develop a loving consciousness there can be no problems.
Love takes care of everything. Love is the same as absolute awareness, pure intelligence, or the power of God. When you have enough love inside, there are truly no problems. Problems only arise when you believe you are separate and lacking love." ~ Robert Adams

“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.”
― Albert Einstein

When I first came across this 'quote' I thought it was an odd subject for Einstein to be concerned with - as far as anyone is aware he had no interest in bees whatsoever and the original source was a Canadian beekeepers’ journal in the 1940s. Apparently it's not true and Einstein didn't say it - but it sounds like it should be true ;-)
