To face different situations in life with presence of mind and mental poise, first we have to train the mind.
Look carefully, see what is of value in others, and respect that.
To receive God's grace, we first need the grace from ourselves.
What we need is peace of mind. We can gain that only through the control of our mind.
First we have to purify our character.  If we pour milk into a dirty vessel, the milk will spoil.
Divinity lies dormant in everyone. By trying to awaken the divinity in others, we are, in fact, awakening the divinity within ourselves.
Drop all your regrets of the past and relax. Relaxation will help you acquire more strength and vitality.
The more you give, the more you will have, like an endless spring that flows into the well as you draw water.
