No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or thine own were; any mans’ death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls foe thee.

The Essence of Mind is like the sky; sometimes it is shadowed by the clouds of Thought-flow. Then the wind of the Guru’s inner teaching blows away he drifting clouds; Yet the Thought-flow itself is the illumination. The Experience is as natural as sun-and moon-light; Yet it is beyond both space and time.

If there is to be peace in the world, there must be peace in the nations. If there is to be peace in the nations, there must be peace in the cities. If there is to be peace in the cities, there must be peace between neighbors. If there is to be peace between neighbors, there must be peace in the home. If there is to be peace in the home, there must be peace in the heart.
