If we do not rise to the challenge of our unique capacity to shape our lives, to seek the kinds of growth that we find individually fulfilling, then we can have no security: we will live in a world of sham, in which our selves are determined by the will of others, in which we will be constantly buffeted and increasingly isolated by the changes round us

That is what a spiritual partnership is: a partnership between equals for the purpose of spiritual growth.

Gary Zukav

Friends Nothing is as intractable as an untamed heart. The untamed heart is intractable. Nothing is as tractable as a tamed heart. The tamed heart is tractable. Nothing tends toward loss as does an untamed heart. The untamed heart tends towards loss. Nothing tends toward growth as does a tamed heart. The tamed heart tends towards growth. Nothing brings suffering as does the untamed, uncontrolled unattended and unrestrained heart. That heart brings suffering. Nothing brings joy as does a tamed, controlled, attended and restrained heart. This heart brings joy.

Gautama Buddha
