Be soft. Do not let this world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
One day a student asked a question of my guru Neem Karoli: Baba, how do I live in the world, what should I do with my life?
He replied: Oh life is so simple. Just love people, serve people, and remember God.
At age 17, I joined a meditation and prayer group where I first learned about spiritual healing and the connection of mind /body healing.
A physician in the meditation group encouraged me to go and study with Dr Harold Reilly, founder of Reilly Health Institute in New York City. Dr Reilly accepted me as a private student and I lived with him and his assistant for one month. For my instruction and training, I gave him a massage every day while being taught the use of the Edgar Cayce healing remedies. By the time I returned home, I knew massage would be my life’s work.
