distress

A Quote by Shyamananda on maya, self-realization, bliss, authenticity, happiness, enlightenment, pain, and distress

Your unrest is the last cramp in your legs as you climb this mountain. Rest awhile, if you like.

But do not return to your old house. It is not your home any longer.

d.b.mon. april 26, 1742
Oh that i could spend every moment of my life to His Glory!!

tues. april 27 1742
if i had a thousand lives my soul would gladly have laid them all down at once to have been with Christ.

oh that my soul might never offer any dead, cold services to my God!

Nothing greives me so much as that i cannot live constantly to God's glory.
