    Thanks for introducing me to BKS, Tim. I never heard of him. Seems to have impacted many, many lives – including yours!

    I looked up his 8 quotes. I liked the one about not giving up even though we will never be perfect.

    • Bob,

      As always, thank you for the comment 🙂

      You’re referring to this one, right? “Do not stop trying just because perfection eludes you.” Interesting quote.

      I like these two: “Illuminated emancipation, freedom, unalloyed and untainted bliss await you, but you have to choose to embark on the Inward Journey to discover it.”

      “When you inhale, you are taking the strength from God. When you exhale, it represents the service you are giving to the world.”

      If you’re interested in more of BKS’ philosophy, this interview will shed light: http://www.namarupa.org/magazine/nr03/downloads/NamaRupa_03_02.pdf

      Peace & all good….

    Hi tim,

    Yes, that’s the one!
    As to the next one you quoted: I don’t understand what it means. As you know, I like short and simple – which this is NOT! LOL!
