Excellence is the result

of Caring more than others think is Wise,

Risking more than others think is Safe,

Dreaming more than others think is Practical,

and Expecting more than others think is Possible.

The world, as we have created it,

is a process of our thinking.

It cannot be changed

without changing our thinking.

Man often becomes

what he believes himself to be.

If I keep on saying to myself

that I cannot do a certain thing,

it is possible

that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it.

On the contrary,

if I have the belief that I can do it,

I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it

even if I may not have it

at the beginning.

It is as though you have an eye
That sees all forms
But does not see itself.
This is how your mind is.
Its light penetrates everywhere
And engulfs everything,
So why does it not know itself?

Remember

that sometimes not getting what you want

is a wonderful stroke of luck.

Mountains should be climbed

with as little effort as possible

and without desire.

The reality of your own nature

should determine the speed.

If you become restless,

speed up.

If you become winded,

slow down.

You climb the mountain in an equilibrium

between restlessness and exhaustion.

We take a handful of sand

from the endless landscape

of awareness

around us

and call that handful of sand

the world.

Never say, “I cannot;”

For you are infinite.

Even time and space

are as nothing compared

with your nature.

You can do anything

and everything.

A personal philosophy

that’s based on what’s true

in the Universe

will sustain you

through every occurrence

that life brings to you.
