Mata Amritanandamayi (Amma.org)
“Pure love transcends the body. It is between hearts.
It has nothing to do with bodies.”
“There is love and Love. You love your family — your father, mother, sister, brother, husband, wife, etc. But you do not love your neighbour. You love your son or daughter, but you do not love all children. You love your father and mother, but you do not love everyone the way you love your father and mother. You love your religion, but you do not love all religions. Likewise, you have love for your country, but you do not love all countries. Hence, this is not Love; it is only love. Transformation of this love to Love is the goal of spirituality. In the fullness of Love blossoms the beautiful, fragrant flower of compassion.”
“Children, love can accomplish anything and everything. Love can cure diseases. Love can heal wounded hearts and transform human minds. Through love one can overcome all obstacles. Love can help us renounce all physical, mental and intellectual tensions and thereby bring peace and happiness.”
“The common expression is ‘I love you.’ But instead of ‘I love you,’ it would be better to say, ‘I am love — I am the embodiment of pure love.’ Remove the I and you, and you will find that there is only love. It is as if love is imprisoned between the I and you. Remove the I and you, for they are unreal; they are self-imposed walls that don’t exist. The gulf between I and you is the ego. When the ego is removed the distance disappears and the I and you also disappear. They merge to become one — and that is love. You lend the I and you their reality. Withdraw your support and they will disappear. Then you will realize, not that ‘I love you,’ but that ‘I am that all-embracing love.’”
“There is no need to worry about the future. The ups and downs are the very nature of life. Spirituality is the science that teaches us to accept everything with joy.”
“If we change our mental attitude, we can also handle changes that happen in external situations. If anyone knows how to swim, then swimming in the ocean becomes a delicious game. But those who don’t know can easily drown.”
“Understanding spirituality helps us face everything with mental strength. When problems emerge in life, some collapse, unable to face them. The spiritual person, however, will be able to cope with such times of difficulties with equanimity.”
“That stillness, or center, is what a true seeker yearns for, and this is why he doesn’t bother about the past or the future. His focus is on the here and now. That is what is known as remembrance of God. Remembrance of God can only take place when you let go of the past and stop dreaming about the future. Then the pendulum of the mind stops swinging back and forth; it reaches a point of stillness, and you dwell in the stillness of the present moment.”
“Indian culture teaches us to consider all Atithi (guest) as God. By Atithi, not just people are targeted. Every situation we encounter by surprise is an Atithi (literally, “a situation without a fixed hour”). We must be able to accept everything with joy. When we do, every situation becomes a stepping stone to greater maturity.”
“When we face difficult situations, we can feel intimidated. Nevertheless, we must move forward with vigilance, without losing our mental strength. Even if we fall or fail, we should not be discouraged, but we should consider this step back as a stepping stone to success.”

Paul, you saw exactly what was happening in our office situation. It was amazing to me how you were able to not only see all the personalities but also help us unwind a difficult situation. Such an excellent experience working with you. Thank you!
WOW! Such a great experience working with you. Your sessions made me feel so much better. I’m at a loss of words right now. Suffice to say that you helped me regain my confidence and let go of some serious garbage. I was carrying so many unnecessary pieces of guilt and self-hatred. You helped me release these things. Truly a wonderful experience.
I love our sessions so far. After a month, I’m noticing just how clear I really can be. I tend to overcomplicate things and get lost in the details. I also forgot how to be a positive person. Working with the rituals and living more in gratitude has been immensely rewarding and eye-opening!
Thank you for being such a light and inspiring person in my life, Paul. I was worried about hiring someone to help me because it all felt so unmanageable. You were so sweet with me, holding my hand during a very painful time. Each session helped me break out of my darkness. The difference between today and 3 months ago is almost unbelievable. Thanks for seeing my potential and walking me into it!
Working with you has been amazing. I love how you can see the challenges that my wife and I are having - and you don’t blame either of us. You also saw that I have a bit of work to do, which I needed to hear. Now that I’m completely over myself (haha), she and I are able to have very productive conversations. Sometimes it feels like we’re just getting to know each other. We appreciate you, Paul - thanks!
Thank you so much for hearing me so deeply. You are so kind and generous to me, helping me get past the death of my child and loss of my marriage. The guilt was killing me, but I’m seeing the light again, feeling more loving. Thank you for working through everything with me. I know I’m a challenge. I’ve listened to the recordings several times. Each time, I am reawakened into how empowering you are for me. How kind and present. Thank you so much. I am SO GLAD I TRUSTED YOU AS MY COACH!
