Such a moment was complete in itself, pure and sufficient."

The more we develop our inner being, the inner source of love and truth, the inner quality of being here and now, the more we also have access to our intuition."
Author: Swami Dhyan Giten

Today's Quote

Altogether, Olympia thinks the sight of herself satisfactory, but not beautiful: a smile is missing, a certain light about the eyes. For how very different a woman will look when she has happiness, Olympia knows, when her beauty emanates from a sense of well-being or from knowing herself to be greatly loved. Even a plain woman will attract the eye if she is happy, while the most elaborately coiffed and bejeweled woman in a room, if she cannot summon contentment, will seem to be merely decorative."
