"In the temple of meditation, with the light of intuition burning on the altar,
there is no restlessness, no nervous striving or searching. Man is truly home at last,
in a sanctuary not made with hands, but with God-peace."

“Intuition manifests in the calm consciousness as feeling, perceived mostly through the heart.
When such feeling comes, you receive through it a definite sense of right direction and unshakable conviction.”
