“If you want to be happy, learn to live alone and to be comfortable with yourself. Plunge into introspection about every experience that has a meaning to you – good books, problem solving , religion, philosophy and inner happiness. Contented, self-chosen, habitual seclusion is the price of real happiness. When you are forced into a crowd of talkers, retire within the cell of your deep thoughts and enjoy the peace of your inner of silence.”
“We live in succession, in division, in parts, in particles. Meantime within man is the soul of the whole; the wise silence; the universal beauty, to which every part and a particle is equally related; the eternal ONE.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson–Over Soul
“I wish to remain in the Silence with the sunlight steaming in
never alone –
ever in the presence of
the lover within all lovers
who lives within
after every other lover leaves.
and last but not least one of my favourite quotes:
“The less you talk, the more will become your mental power. With the increase in your mental capacity, there will be increase in your power of discrimination too. Consequently, you will give up “individual discrimination”. Because of this, you will begin to consider ‘the good of the world at large’ rather than your own individual welfare.For when the world suffers, you too, suffer. You must cultivate such broad feelings from a young age.”

Om hari Om – hari, hari, Om.
