  2. Everything that is happening at this moment is a result of the choices you've made in the past.

  3. Every person is a God in embryo. Its only desire is to be born.

  4. Giving connects two people, the giver and the receiver, and this connection gives birth to a new sense of belonging.

  11. The less you open your heart to others, the more your heart suffers.

  15. This is the nature of genius, to be able to grasp the knowable even when noone else recognizes that it is present.

  17. When you live your life with an appreciation of coincidences and their meanings, you connect with the underlying field of infinite possibilities.

  18. You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers. In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices.
