Enthusiasm Awakeners Singing

Transcendence is perfection.
Perfection is transcendence.
When we transcend our capacities,
Immediately we get an inner joy,
An inner thrill,
Which is another name for perfection.
No perfection can ever be achieved
Without self-transcendence.

  4. Best wishes to all the runners! It is just so beyond to cover these daily distances, in these conditons, for so many days – just to do it even once, and here they go again, most of them! I wish our physical eyes could see the special grace, light and energy being manifested in this race and spilling out to the world! Looking so forward to the daily reports, to at least catch a glimpse of it via this blog!

  5. In a way this is the best time of the year, really touching and inspiring a lot of people worldwide.
