"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary"

"Just as fishes live only in water and birds live in the air, you too should live only in the illuminating effulgence of True knowledge. Perform all actions while remaining firmly established in this truth. Make this effulgence your permanent abode. Then see, how immensely you can enjoy your daily work, life and even death!"
