A Quote by Dr. Deepak Chopra on paradox, heart, feelings, evil, healing, and soul

...once again we face a paradox, for it appears
that softening your heart and gently tending its wounds
will protect you from evil.
Building a fortress and defending yourself behind it will
only make you more vulnerable.
Healing your own heart is the single
most powerful thing you can do
to change the world.
Your own transformation will enable you to withdraw
so completely from evil
that you contribute to it by not one word, one thought, or one breath.
This healing process is like recovering your soul.

Deepak Chopra

A Quote by John Coltrane on music, essence, best of what we are, purifying, and feelings

There is never any end
There are always new sounds to imagine
New feelings to get at
And always there is a need to keep purifying these needs and sounds
So that we can really see what we've discovered in its pure state
So we can see more clearly what we are
In that way, we can give those who listen to the essence
The best of what we are

John Coltrane
