32. Life is the Supreme Guru

There is as much death when a million die as when one

Fear and greed cause the misuse of the mind. The right use
of mind is in the service of love, of life, of truth, of beauty.

You must begin in yourself, with yourself—this is the
inexorable law. You cannot change the image without changing the face.

First realize that your world is only a reflection of
yourself and stop finding fault with the reflection.

Self-remembrance is in the mind, self-realization is beyond
the mind. The image in the mirror is of the face beyond the mirror.

To help others, one must be beyond the need of help.

Empty of possession, physical and mental, free of all
self-concern, be open for discovery.
