Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams.
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

American poet and social activist, Langston Hughes

"The first time I heard Indian music I felt as though I knew it. It was everything, everything I could think of. It was like every music I had ever heard, but twenty times better than anything all put together. It was just so strong, so overwhelmingly positive, it buzzed me right out of my brain.”

"Our sages developed music from time immemorial for the mind to take shelter in that pure being which stands apart as one’s true self. Real music is not for wealth, not for honors, or not even for the joys of the mind - it is one kind of yoga, a path for realization and salvation to purify your mind and heart and give you longevity."


- Ali Akbar Khan

“We talk to ourselves incessantly about our world. In fact we maintain our world with our internal talk. And whenever we finish talking to ourselves about ourselves and our world, the world is always as it should be. We renew it, we rekindle it with life, we uphold it with our internal talk. Not only that, but we also choose our paths as we talk to ourselves. Thus we repeat the same choices over and over until the day we die, because we keep on repeating the same internal talk over and over until the day we die. A warrior is aware of this and strives to stop his internal talk.”

'Are you angry at me don Juan?' I asked when he returned. He seemed surprised at my question.

'No! I'm never angry at anybody! No human being can do anything important enough for that. You get angry at people when you feel that their acts are important. I don't feel that way any longer.'

“Words, no matter whether they are vocalized and made into sounds or remain unspoken as thoughts, can cast an almost hypnotic spell upon you.

You easily lose yourself in them, become hypnotized into implicitly believing that when you have attached a word to something, you know what it is.

The fact is: you don’t know what it is. You have only covered up the mystery with a label. Everything, a bird, a tree, even a simple stone, and certainly a human being, is ultimately unknowable. This is because it has unfathomable depth…

Underneath the surface appearance, everything is not only connected with everything else, but also with the Source of all life out of which it came.”
