- For a person you know who is suffering, try: May you find peace. May you find healing. For whatever words or actions I have expressed that have harmed you, I ask your forgiveness. I forgive you for the words and actions you have expressed that have harmed me. May I be at peace. May I find the trust and openness to befriend my anger and fear and to soften the harshness I feel.
- You always have a choice of emotional responses to life.
- A teacher can help anyone on the path to awareness. The most valuable is not the one with the deepest knowledge of the scriptures, or the most eloquent: it's the one who points you in the direction that enables you to see.
