"Kabir Saheb says that the rain affects mountains, high and low plain lands, all alike, but the water does not settle everywhere. It stays only in deep pools or ponds. In the same manner, the teachings of the Master (Satguru) are meant to leave an impact on everyone, but it settles down in the pure hearts of true seekers only."
Studying, Meditating, Attending Satsang, Avoiding Bad Company:
"So to develop this love, we must first obey His commandments, second weed out all imperfections, and third devote time to the spiritual practices. You should also have the company of somebody who just reminds you of your ideal. Avoid the company of all others in whose society you are attached to the world or forget Him. If you cannot have the company of those who can help you to remember Him, then it is better to live alone. Live with the Masters speaking through books, through the scriptures. You will be better off. A further symbol that in your love you are drawing closer to Him, is that you will feel separation. You will hanker to see Him. When you hear about Him, your heart will become full and tears will roll down from your cheeks. These are the symptoms to show that the fruit is ripening. These things are the blossoms. Ultimately, when the fruit comes, you are for the Master, and the Master is for you. These are the steps and we have now to judge where we stand."

“Meditation: “When your eye, turning inward into your brain, pierces the sky within and your spirit leaving your body, flies upward, you will sight the heaven which is the location of the post of Sahasdal Kanwal (One Thousand-Petalled Lotus).””—Soami Ji Maharaj, Sar Bachan Radhasoami Poetry
“I agree with the Vegan Jain Movement, which says consuming dairy products is as unethical and violent as eating meat. Rather than an idyllic image of Krishna and cows or “bessy the cow” living a happy life as someone’s family pet — the reality is much different — a living hell and being tortured for five years then taken to the slaughter house. See this article: “My Visit to a Jain Dairy Farm”, which has helped many vegetarians transition to a cruelty-free vegan diet: http://www.scribd.com/doc/162740890/My-Visit-to-a-Jain-Dairy-Farm”—
“Ultimately there is light and love and intelligence in this universe. And we are it, we carry that within us, its not just something out there, it is within us. This is what we are trying to re-connect with, our original light and love and intelligence, which is who we really are. So it is important not to get so distracted by extraneous things, but to really remember what we are here on this planet for.”—Jetsun-ma Tenzin Palmo

More Like 900 Planets in the Solar System Rather Than 8 or 9 — A Sudden Change in Planets: http://radio.seti.org
A planet is a planet is a planet. Unless it’s Pluto – then it’s a dwarf planet. But even then it’s a planet, according to experts. So what was behind the unpopular re-classification of Pluto by astronomers, and were they justified?
As the New Horizons spacecraft closes in on this small body, one planetary scientist says that this dwarf planet could be more typical of planets than Mars, Mercury, and Saturn. And that our solar system has not 8 or even 9 planets, but 900.
Also, meet a type of planet that’s surprisingly commonplace, although we don’t have one in our solar system: super Earths. Could they harbor life?
And the DAWN mission continues its visit to the two most massive residents of the asteroid belt: Vesta and Ceres. Discover what these proto-planets may reveal to us about the early solar system.
