“There are only two ways to live your life: One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is a miracle.” —Albert Einstein


Yet nothing could ever convince me

that I was alone.

If God exists he isn’t just butter and good luck—

he isn’t just the summer day the red rose

he’s the snake he’s the mouse,

he’s the hole in the ground

for which thoroughness, if anything, I would adore him,

if I could adore him.

Adore him.”

—Mary Oliver from “Evening Star” .

“This is enlightenment for one to experience what the real self is like. This pure self alone can be equated with God. At that state it is at the peak of enlightenment and light of the self graces and spreads evenly from soul to sole and from sole to soul. At this stage the darśana of the Lord is possible.” Yogācārya B.K.S. Iyengar
