The Path to Enlightenment

“Be remarkable. Let a flame of passion illuminate your way. Be extraordinary. Stray from the dullness of shadows, into a radiant glow. Feel. Dream. Live. And never concede. Never settle for anything less, as you move full speed ahead in the quest for a life full of light and color.” -Anisha Shenai

  2. Well said! Thank you Courtney, for posting this wonderful quote. It is from the most e-mailed "Operation Red Sprinkles" (Boston .com) by Ms Anisha Shenai, Salutatorian at Danvers High School, MA. Her entire speech is very interesting and inspiring. Here is the link from Danvers Herald news paper: http://www.wickedlocal.com/danvers/news/x1501906467/Salutatorian-Anisha-Shenai-Operation-Red-Sprinkles

    By serendipity I saw the quotation from your blog (The Path to Enlightenment by Anisha Shenai) discussed on webpage http://www.martialdevelopment.com/blog/the-path-to-enlightenment-in-six-words/

    I cannot thank you enough for illuminating the path to enlightenment with your invaluable quote. I am sharing the thoughts I expressed today about this quote. Keep up your excellent work.

    "I like the quote by Anisha Shenai that clears the confusion and darkness overshaddowing the path to enlightenment. In so few words, Anisha Shenai delivers the message to-the-point, concise and crystal clear that (one should) NEVER CONCEDE and NEVER SETTLE FOR ANYTHING LESS. That’s the key to the path to enlightenment.

    “Be remarkable. Let a flame of passion illuminate your way. Be extraordinary. Stray from the dullness of shadows, into a radiant glow. Feel. Dream. Live. And never concede. Never settle for anything less, as you move full speed ahead in the quest for a life full of light and color.” -Anisha Shenai

    I know that the path to enlightenment is not easy. For many, it is unattainable. Nonetheless, they who aim at it and never concede and never settle for anything less, will only achieve it…..if not, at least come much nearer to it than those whose laziness and despondency make them give it up as unattainable.

    Thanks Anisha Shenai and Courtney Autumn Martin, for enlightening me about the path to enlightenment. God bless you in all your endeavors."

  12. Very inspirational. We all have dreams, but a dream doesn't turn into reality by magic. It takes lot of hard work and determination to never concede and never settle for anything less than your dreams. Very well said, young lady.
