At the heart of all nobility lies a well-practiced attitude of faith. Faith that all is well. Faith that things are always working out. Faith that ultimately everyone means well. Faith that whatever is truly desired shall in one form or another come about. Faith that an Eternal and Infinite Source lies at the root of all phenomena, and that this source is unconditionally loving toward each entity and manifestation.

A person who has marinated in such convictions becomes a faith-full being. Such a being naturally expresses him or herself with nobility and grace in virtually any situation or scenario. This is the true gentleman or lady: not without flaws, but with an unshakable faith in the wellbeing of all as it is, and a firm conviction in the essential love-substratum which lies at the root of all of life, no matter what presents itself.

– Bentinho Massaro


“Iga fraas on omaette hingamine. Tema sisemine valu ja selle valu äravõtmine on omavahel seotud ja moodustavad hingamise. Pausides tuleb õppida kuulama vaikust, osata tunnetada iga heli tekitatud vibratsioone, tema kestvust ja üleminekut järgmisele helile, selle sammu kaalu. Kiirustada ei tohi, tuleb hinnata iga sammu punktist punkti noodipaberil. Samm edasi tuleb teha alles siis, kui oled läbi oma „puhastustule“ lasknud kõikvõimalikud nootide variandid. Alles kõik kannatused läbinud heli saab olla täiuslik.“
