• Heaven and God are not high above us – far away; they are deep within us. Seekers of the eternal Truth will realize [it is] within their aspiring hearts. — Chinmoy Kumar Ghose [Sri Chinmoy] (1931-2007) Indian spiritual leader
• In so far as [the] soul becomes permeated by truth, beauty, and goodness as the value-realization of God-consciousness, such a resultant being becomes indestructible. If there is no survival of eternal values in the evolving soul of man, then mortal existence is without meaning, and life itself is a tragic illusion. … What you begin in time you will assuredly finish in eternity – if it is worth finishing. (111:3.7) — The Urantia Book {1955}
