No cannons of moods can reach you if you remain in the fortress of inner spiritual calmness. Your only sanctuary of freedom is that haven within yourself. But people make it very hard for themselves by not trying to remain in that state. Instead, they have the habit of restlessness. They think they cannot sit still and cultivate the peace of the soul in meditation. They would rather be on the go….If you make the effort to realize how interesting your soul is, you won’t know time when you immerse yourself in that consciousness. Your soul will pour out to you infinite wisdom; you will find that all knowledge is written in that image of God within you.

– Paramahansa Yogananda, in “Mastering your Moods with the Thought-Sword of Wisdom” from “Summer 2005 Self-Realization Magazine”
