“The essence of my teaching is to understand ourselves. We best go about this goal by first realizing that the outer world is nothing more than a projection of our inner lives. We create it by our egos, our attachments, and our desires. If something appears bad or wrong in the world, its cause is inside us, not in the outer world. If we can truly understand this cause and effect, then we can let go of egos, attachments, and desires, thus setting the stage to experience God’s love.”
Baba Hari Dass, in an essay entitled “God is Peace”
