"Let it never be said that the spiritual way is a cowardly or
escapist approach to life. On the contrary, it requires
maximum diligence and persistence to seek divine
guidance when all the evidence of our eyes and ears tries
to tell us that life is largely physical, intellectual and emotional."

"I didn't need to learn how to meditate before meditating.
It turned out to be one of those learn-as-you-go things -- just as
learning how to stay sober is part of staying sober a day at a time."

Seems to be a lot of good stuff in the "Beginners Book". Here is another Grapevine Quote of the Day:

Sometimes, it is just that simple.

Reminds me of a not so simple quote that I can never seem to say without getting it jumbled!

There is nothing so bad that a good drink won't make worse! :lol:

Simple is good!
