October 21

In the same way as the storm troubles and muddies the waters, so too passions trouble our souls and interfere with our understanding of this life.

People with great and wonderful souls are always quiet and happy. Those people who do not have spirituality are always unhappy.
— Chinese Proverb

Do not be concerned too much with what will happen. Everything which happens will be good and useful for you.
— Epictetus

A person will understand his place in the world only when he understands his soul.
— Chinese Wisdom

Real power is not in momentary desires, but in complete calmness.

Complete outer calmness is impossible. But when there are some calm periods, we should appreciate them and make them last longer. This is the time when useful thoughts appear; they become stronger and guide us in life.
