Quotes About Happiness

"That creative principle, before it touches mind, is complete innocence, and so there is no vigilance. It is empty, and so there is the fullness of Love. It is freedom itself, life itself, and so there is no need to seek or to avoid. Absent the knowledge of virtue, it is virtue itself. It is possible to rediscover this essential principle and abandon all else."

Phil Beaumont
