Mind is no small thing, and is not easy to conquer,
but we should start by changing its direction.
While its face remains turned toward the worldly things,
the soul will be worldly,
but if it turns around and faces the soul,
the soul will become spiritual.
We must turn round.
When you are fully convinced
that the fountainhead of peace
and harmony is within
and that you have the key
and the means to tap within,
you should not let
the precious moments pass
without deriving maximum
You are simply to decide and then act.
— Sant Kirpal Singh
