“Light comes through the mind

and Illuminates the whole body.

When all things within you are integrated,

your light will shine everywhere.”


Dialogue of the Savior

“When the light within is sheltered from the wind,

the yogi who is perfect in concentration

realizes the Self.

He is then a lamp

that does not flicker.”


The Bhagavad Gita

See Me in yourselves,

as you would see yourself

in water or a mirror.




See in this body of Mine

The existence of the whole universe.

Be centered in the One.


the Bhagavad Gita


Wise are they who center their

hearts on the  inner essence of things,

not on outer appearances.

If you think the Kingdom of God is above you,

then birds will find it first.


If you think it is in the ocean,

then fish will discover it before you do.


Look…. the Kingdom of God

is within you and all around you.


The Gospel of Thomas


Seeking within, you will find stillness.

Here there is no more fear or attachment-

only joy.

I Am the Light which is upon them all.

I am the All.

All things came from Me and

All things will return to Me.

Split the timber and there I Am.

Lift a stone and you

will discover Me there.


The Gospel of Thomas

*   *   *

I Am the origin of all things.

All things came from Me.

Whether moving or unmoving,

all things exist in Me.

The mountain is the mountain

And the Way is the same as of old.

Verily what is changed is my own heart.

Life isn’t just about darkness or light, rather it’s about finding light within the darkness.


Landon Parham


As we work to create light for others, we naturally light our own way.

Patience does not mean

to passively endure.

It means to be farsighted enough

to trust the end result of a process.

What does patience mean?

It means to look at the thorn

and see the rose,

to look at the night

and see the dawn.

Impatience means

to be so shortsighted

as to not be able to see the outcome.

The lovers of God

never run out of patience,

for they know that time is needed

for the crescent moon to become full.

Do not spoil what you have

by desiring what you have not;

remember that what you now have

was once among the things

you only hoped for.

Patience is power.
Patience is not an absence of action;
rather it is “timing”
it waits on the right time to act,
for the right principles
and in the right way.
Fulton J. Sheen

The world, as we have created it,

is a process of our thinking.

It cannot be changed

without changing our thinking.
