1 Knowledge is not necessarily wisdom. 2 By knowing one reaches belief. By doing one gains conviction. When you know, dare. 3 Listen to your conviction, even if they seem absurd to your reason. 4 Experience will show you. A master can only point the way. 5 True teaching is not an accumulation of knowledge; it is an awakening of consciousness that goes through successive stages. 6 Every person is rich in excuses to safeguard one's prejudices, instincts, and opinions. 7 Images are nearer to reality than cold definitions. 8 Seek peacefully; you will find. 9 Peace is the fruit of activity, not of sleep. 10 The key to all problems is the problem of consciousness. 11 A beautiful thing is never perfect.
