Just A Little Note…

Swamiji was very into noticing and appreciating nature.

I have been flipping through and glancing at Swami Nirmalananda’s A Garland of Forest Flowers for quite some time now, but last night, I decided to start at the beginning and read through it.  It is such a beautiful and simple book that it is almost breathtaking.  With kindness, sweetness and the care of a mother, Swami Nirmalananda guides the reader through what he has learned in his life of earnestly seeking the truth by means of travelling around the world and entering into a deep 10 year silence.  I only read the forward and prologue  and they were filled with beautiful quotes by swamiji and his students.

“Human glory lies in our being without a single thought, in being free from disappointment, and expecting nothing by living in the moment, in the present, not in the past or future.”

“Select your own road after considered thought.”

“Enjoy the bliss of silence.”

“When the heart rules the mind, life has altogether a different quality and dimension.”
