|Wild Fact About Me
||I collect Om symbols. See my photos.
||True heroes are not celebrities. True heroes are not movie stars, television personalities, athletes, models, writers, musicians, poets, scientists, politicians, religious leaders, millionaires, or family members. True heroes are those who help the weak and serve the less fortunate; do no harm to any creature; preserve nature; fight poverty; speak only the truth; and give much of themselves, asking nothing in return.
|What Gives Me Hope
||Amma; people who speak up for those who are less fortunate.
|If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
||1) Destroy the plutocracy. Introduce Socialism.
2) Evenly distribute wealth.
3) Teach meditation to school children.
4) Ban the Bible. It is nothing more than a book of myths and fictional stories written by greedy, wealthy tyrants as a means for political manipulation and oppression.
|What/who changed my life and why
||Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, my beloved Guru--She is the embodiment of wisdom, love & compassion.
|What Bugs Me
"Animal lovers" who eat meat,
Disrespect toward women,
Those who hurt others weaker than them,
Selfish and inconsiderate people
|What Scares Me
War - Cruelty - Greed - Indifference,
men who abuse women,
Ammachi - Mata Amritanandamayi
||"When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside can't harm you" (African proverb)
"The universe is my country and the human family is my tribe." (Kahlil Gibran)
"Instead of giving someone a piece of your mind, give them the peace of your mind." (Believe it or not, i got this from a fortune cookie)
"If females ruled the world, there would be peace on earth... and a lot of fat, happy women." (not sure who said this)
"People are only as happy as they allow themselves to be." (Abraham Lincoln)
"There is one truth that shines through all of creation. Rivers and mountains, plants and trees, the sun, the moon, the stars, you and i - all are expressions of this one Reality. It is by assimilating this truth in our eyes, and thus gaining a deeper understanding, that we can discover the inherent beauty in this diversity." (Amma)
"Fathers and their muscle have murdered religion. Mothers and their milk can revive it." (Dr. Anoop Chandola)
"Women are the power and the very foundation of the world. When women lose touch with themselves, the harmony of the world ceases to exist, and destruction sets in. It is therefore crucial that women everywhere make every effort to rediscover their fundamental nature, for only they can save this world." (Amma)
"It is difficult to find happiness in oneself; it is impossible to find it anywhere else." (Arthur Schopenhauer)
"Religion is a question of being and becoming, not one of believing." (Swami Vivekananda)
"If you want peace, do not see the faults of others. Rather, see your own faults." (Sarada Devi)
"The great art of life is sensation - to feel that we exist, even in pain." (Lord Byron)
"If people do not revere the law of nature, it will inexorably and adversely affect them. If they accept it with knowledge and reverence, it will accomodate them with balance and harmony." (Lao Tsu)
"You may deprive me of my possessions; you may shed my blood and burn my body, but you cannot hurt my spirit or touch my truth." (Kahlil Gibran)
"Of all the evils for which man has made himself responsible, none is so degrading, so shocking, or so brutal as his abuse of the better half of humanity...the female sex, not the weaker sex. It [The female sex] is the nobler of the two for it is even today the embodiment of sacrifice, humility, faith, and knowledge." (Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi)
"Do not walk ahead of me, I might not follow; do not walk behind me, I might not lead; rather, walk beside me, and be my friend."
