“One thing: you have to walk, and create the way by your walking; you will not find a ready-made path. It is not so cheap, to reach to the ultimate realization of truth. You will have to create the path by walking yourself; the path is not ready-made, lying there and waiting for you. It is just like the sky: the birds fly, but they don't leave any footprints. You cannot follow them; there are no footprints left behind.”

Paramahansa Yogananda
“Live quietly in the moment and see the beauty of all before you. The future will take care of itself......”
Yogananda, Autobiography of a Yogi

“With me, illusions are bound to be shattered. I am here to shatter all illusions. Yes, it will irritate you, it will annoy you - that's my way of functioning and working. I will sabotage you from your very roots! Unless you are totally destroyed as a mind, there is no hope for you.”

Elizabeth Gilbert
“I keep remembering one of my Guru's teachings about happiness. She says that people universally tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will maybe descend upon you like fine weather if you're fortunate enough. But that's not how happiness works. Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it, you must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it. If you don't you will eat away your innate contentment. It's easy enough to pray when you're in distress but continuing to pray even when your crisis has passed is like a sealing process, helping your soul hold tight to its good attainments.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Steve Maraboli
“I keep hearing about a spiritual awakening, but I feel what we need instead, is a human one. It would be wonderful and empowering to become free from the disillusionment and nonsense being sold to us from gurus for centuries.”
Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

Steve Maraboli
“100% of a Guru’s marketing plan depends on you holding the belief that you are not enough; that you were created less equipped than necessary to fulfill your purpose. What if you let go of that belief and connected with the truth of your innate power to change and shape your life? You ARE enough. You CAN change and shape your own life. Anyone who tells you different is simply lying. Your life has immeasurable potentiality for greatness; act accordingly.”
Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

Yoza Fitriadi
“Bukan hanya aku yang kehilangan, tapi seantero sekolah juga merasakan lubang kehampaan. Ia bukanlah sosok guru yang sering mencuri waktu demi kepentingan sendiri. Bukan pula pribadi yang kerap mengambil handphone dalam saku tanpa peduli muridnya pintar atau diam tak mengerti.

Ia tak tampak seperti orang kebanyakan. Oknum guru yang tak merasa khianat walau kerap datang terlambat. Mereka yang hanya mengingat hak sementara kewajiban cuma dicatat. Pendidik yang selalu memberi tugas tapi jarang memperjelas. Pegawai yang membanggakan sertifkasi tanpa memikirkan kualitas beriring prestasi.

(Pejuang Cinta, Dunia Tanpa Huruf R)”
Yoza Fitriadi, Dunia Tanpa Huruf R

Donna Goddard
“It could be said that we become so much a stranger that we disappear and find ourselves reborn in the midst of humanity which is quite a paradox.”
Donna Goddard, Love's Longing

Ora Nadrich
“You decide. You are the author, but you are much more
than that. You are the teacher, the leader, the guru, and the
creator of all that lives in your reality. So, what do you want
that reality to be?”
Ora Nadrich, Live True: A Mindfulness Guide to Authenticity

Dennis Waite
“It is the perennial problem of the teacher to be able to judge where the student currently is in his or her understanding and lead them onwards from there. This is why a living 'guru' is really needed, so that questions may be asked and answered face to face.

When we read a book, or even listen to a tape recording of a lecture or dialogue, we are receiving only a particular viewpoint, aimed at a student of a particular level. It may resonate or it may not. Even the method of expression is crucial. Whilst one person may appreciate logic and intellectual analysis, another may need sympathetic reassurance and practical guidance.
Ultimately, the truth is one and everything else that might be said is only at the level of appearance, using a language that is necessarily objective and dualistic. What is needed is a teacher whose words and style 'click' with our particular mental conditioning. This book aims to present excerpts from traditional and modern teaching in a wide variety of styles, in the hope that something will click.”
Dennis Waite
