SATHYA SAI BABA
All experiences of pleasure and pain have their origin in the thoughts of man. A thought is like the seed of a tree that, in due time, create branches, leaves, flowers and fruits. Everything you see in a tree came from a small seed. Similarly, although the thought of man is subtle, it contains, potentially, the entire universe. The atom is a microcosm of the universe. The person can see the size of a giant fig tree, but its seed is very small. Inherently, the seed and the tree are essentially one.
