As I read through these quotes, it triggered additional thoughts within me. Thank you for unlocking that door. Ironically one of my thoughts was, “The greatest diamonds you seek, are small in comparison to the diamonds already within you.” May your diamonds continue to shine brightly in the realm of service you are giving others. Namaste.

My grandson is named Rumi. He is 2 1/2 years old. At 18 months he was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) which is an alternation in the genes that control messages from the brain to his muscles controlling walking. On March 15, 2020, my son and a few of his friends are participating in a run in NYC for a “Cure for SMA”. I read through your quotes and we will use this one as we try to raise funds to help children who have SMA. “Your heart knows the way. Run in that direction.” Thank you for your posting of these quotes. Thank you.
