“Bottom line is, even if you see ’em coming, you’re not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does. So what are we, helpless? Puppets? No. The big moments are gonna come. You can’t help that. It’s what you do afterwards that counts. That’s when you find out who you are.”

THE CERTAINTY OF REALIZED TRUTH


THE CERTAINTY OF REALIZED TRUTH
To realize the Truth is to attain self-mastery in every moment of experience. It is freedom from all fear. It is the simplification of life through irresistible sincerity.
You may be quite near this goal without consciously knowing it.
The signal of the Master may come when you least expect it. It comes when the disciple is beyond fooling himself.
It always comes as the last confirmatory benediction from the Eternal Witness.
It is not the development of clairvoyance or clair audience, but the mounting upto the unshakable certainty of realized Truth, which will enable man to stand steadfast by the Truth, even in the midst of the sceptical and deriding antagonism of the outer-world.

Did you know…

… that today is Borax in North America Day? On this day in 1856, borax (hydrated sodium borate) was discovered in North America by Dr. John Veatch near Red Bluff, California. (It was first discovered in dry lake beds in Tibet.) In 1880, production began in Death Valley, California, where the famous twenty-mule-team wagons carried it out of the below-sea-level depression to the railroad junction at Mojave, 160 miles away. Remember 20 Mule Team Borax?!
