Maya's Wisdom

"I am a human being. Nothing human can be alien to me"

If you can internalize the least portion of that, you will never be able to say of a criminal act 'I couldn't do that' no matter how heinous the crime. If a human being did it, you have to say 'I have in me all the components that are in him. However, I intend to use my energies constructively as opposed to destructively'.

If you can do that about the negative, just think what you can do with the positive.
