Wisdom: Thoughts From the Indian Masters (1)

"When a man begins to have a vision larger than his own truth, when he realizes that it is much larger than it at first seemed, he begins to become conscious of his moral nature. His perspective on life necessarily changes, and his will takes the place of his desires. So comes about the conflict between our inferior self and our superior self, between our desires and our will, between our greed for objects that appeal to our senses and the purpose that comes from the bottom of our heart."
Rabindranoth Tagori
"First of all, accept yourself. When you do not accept yourself and imagine yourself to be someone different, a conflict arises between what you believe you are and what you really are."
