2 A.M. Quotes

“Curiosity is the most unspiritual of all the faults of the human mind.”

2 A.M.

“No man can by thinking do much, but by consciousness and recognition of his Divinity he can find a 'way ye know not of' – he can escape the hopeless pattern of human destiny and Karmic debt. He will understand then how it is he must 'be still and know that I am God' – and how it also is 'then went he in and shut the door'.”

And It Was Told of a Certain Potter

“Selfish human friendship is like a grain of mustard seed which is tightly grasped in the hand – it cannot grow nor develop, and is worthless. The right kind of friendship is like a mustard seed which is planted in fertile soil – it is constantly developing, and while it may be the joy of one, it is not shut out from others. As there is enough sunshine for all, so is there enough friendship and love for all.”

The noisy breakers beat against the shores in vain, they only carry with them destruction; but the mighty silent depth of the ocean carries a fleet on its bosom.”

“Whatsoever you perceive you will find in the manifest realm, without a question of a doubt. But again, if the discovery of this manifestation is going to excite you or appear as a miracle or a magic display of power, nothing will happen. You have to go beyond the place of surprise, else you are not actually accepting it as a reality but have merely been hoodwinking yourself, hoping by assuming something of this kind to bring out the results. Nothing will happen – God is not mocked.”

That Ye Might Have

“It is not the possession of things, but the possession by them that counts – I have no interest in things for their worldly value, but for the beauty and comfort they give me.”
