Wisdom quotes

Progress does not happen without change and change doesn’t happen without an open mind.

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. (George Bernard Shaw)

The mistakes of your past form the roots of the wisdom of your future.

This Body is Not Me

This Body is Not Me ~
” You do not see Me as I really am. This body is not Me. My real Self is far more beautiful.
I am Infinite Truth, Infinite Love, Infinite Power. I am life eternal.
I was Krishna, I was Buddha, I was Jesus and now I am Meher Baba. ”
Meher Baba as written in Love Alone Prevails, p. 34

Who gets an ‘A’ in math–the one who can breeze through the tests or the student who asks intelligent questions and challenges the assumptions?

Who gets into a fancy college…

And of course, what looks like raw talent might not be. It could simply be our confusion about first impressions compared to the power of commitment, enrollment and persistence.
