Beauty in the person

If there is a light in the soul,
There will be beauty in the person.
If there is beauty in the person,
There will be harmony in the house.

There will be order in the nation.
If there is order in the nation,
There will be peace in the world.

Why does a bird sing?

A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.

Hide in the human heart

It was said that God once sought advice from a Master. "I want to play a game of hide-and-seek with humankind. I've asked the angels what the best place would be. Some said in the depth of the ocean. Others said the top of the highest mountain. Still others, the far side of the moon or a distant star. What do you suggest?"

Said the Master, "Hide in the human heart. That's the last place they will think of!"
