We may not learn all we desire to know in life. We may not understand all the facts. But we can live by the wisdom of God, the infinite wisdom of soul. In realization of the supreme self of us all, we are guided by the light of true wisdom.  —Srimati Carrie

From the Gurus and Swamis:  AUM

“Wisdom is illumination by the light within. It permeates the spirit of things, finding the essence of harmony. It ascends to the Truth and Beauty of God.” 

—Swami Kamalananda, "The Mystic Cross"

“Explore all the teachings and manifestations of Truth: Study the wisdom of the ancients. Search the hidden secrets of the cosmic nature. Then know at last that they all are but echoes of the one voice of your own soul reverberating throughout life with the eternal assurance: ‘I am. I know. I love.’”

—Swami Kamalananda, "Reflections on Still Waters"


* * * * * * * * * * *

“With the enlightenment of thy wisdom awaken me to the full cognition that I am the transcendental spirit sojourning within this body only to meet thee in the universe of time and space.” 

—Swami Premananda, " Prayers of Self-Realization"


* * * * * * * * * * *
“The self appears to be conditioned by virtue of ignorance. But when that (ignorance) is destroyed, the unconditioned self shines by its own light, like the sun when the clouds have disappeared.

“The very nature of the self being knowledge, it does not depend, for a knowledge of itself, on any other knowledge, in the same way as a light does not need another light to reveal itself.”

Noble Thoughts
("Let Noble Thoughts come to us from all sides." —Rigveda)


* * * * * * * * * * * *


"Sons of the Infinite, may we be Infinite, perfect beings of light, in the Godhead and in humanity. Winning, Divine Lord and Friend, may we win you. Becoming, Heaven and Earth, may we become you.

Our true being and home is within the infinite. In that unlimited consciousness is our perfection in the Godhead, the Divine Lord of the Vast and his wide vision, and our perfection in humanity is in the Divine Friend and his deep compassion for all."

—David Frawley, "Wisdom of the Ancient Seers, Mantras of the Rig Veda"


* * * * * * * * * * * *


"In Sophia, the highest wisdom-principle, all the greatness and majesty of the unknown that is in God and all that is rich and maternal in His creation are united inseparably, as paternal and maternal principles, the uncreated Father and created Mother-Wisdom."

—Thomas Merton, "New Seeds of Contemplation"


* * * * * * * * * * * *

"Meditation is not a way to enlightenment, nor is it a method of achieving anything at all. It is peace and blessedness itself. It is the actualization of wisdom, the ultimate truth of the oneness of all things."

—Dogen Kigen, in "The Enlightened Mind," edited by Stephen Mitchell
