1.“In today’s rush we all think too much, seek too much, want too much and forget about the joy of just Being.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

 

2. “If I want to be loved as I am, I have to be willing to love others as they are.” ~ Louise Hay 

3. “Find ecstasy within yourself. It is not out there. It is your innermost flowering. The one you are looking for is you.”  ~ Osho

 

4. Everyday is a blessing, and in each moment there are many things that we can be grateful for. The world opens up to us when we live in a space of gratitude. In essence, gratitude has a snowball effect. When we are appreciative and express that gratitude, the universe glows a bit brighter and showers us with even more blessings. 

There is always something to be grateful for, even when life seems hard. When times are tough, whether we are having a bad day or stuck in what may feel like an endless rut, it can be difficult to take the time to feel grateful. Yet, that is when gratitude can be most important. If we can look at our lives, during periods of challenge, and find something to be grateful for, then we can transform our realities in an instant. There are blessings to be found everywhere. When we are focusing on what is negative, our abundance can be easy to miss. Instead, choosing to find what already exists in our lives that we can appreciate can change what we see in our world. We start to notice one blessing, and then another. 

When we constantly choose to be grateful, we notice that every breath is a miracle and each smile becomes a gift. We begin to understand that difficulties are also invaluable lessons. The sun is always shining for us when we are grateful, even if it is hidden behind clouds on a rainy day. A simple sandwich becomes a feast, and a trinket is transformed into a treasure. Living in a state of gratitude allows us to spread our abundance because that is the energy that we emanate from our beings. Because the world reflects back to us what we embody, the additional blessings that inevitably flow our way give us even more to be grateful for. The universe wants to shower us with blessings. The more we appreciate life, the more life appreciates and bestows us with more goodness. ~ Madisyn Taylor

1. Honestly finally, “our stories are out least interesting things about us” ~ Mooji

 

2. The Road to Nowhere: There is a road going by, but you don’t know where it is going. You don’t know whether to go right or left, or whether to stay where you are. You don’t know. Sooner or later, out of boredom no doubt, you will make a choice. You will go right or left. And you will get excited thinking that you have made the right decision until you come to difficult terrain, and then you will be convinced that you went the wrong way. 

This will happen whether you go right or left. It makes no difference. On the Road to Nowhere, it does not matter which way you go, because the road is circular and eventually returns to the same place. On the Road to Nowhere, the question is not “where are you going?” because you aren’t going anywhere in particular. 

The question is “how are you going?. 
Are you enjoying the journey?” 
Are you going happily or sadly? 
Are you going blessing or cursing the people you pass along the way?

On the Road to Nowhere the destination is not so important.
The only thing that is important is your state of consciousness. ~ Everyday Wisdom, Paul Ferrini

 

3. If you defend yourself you are attacked. By planning for the defense of a self that you are not, you are attacking the Self that you are. And if you feel defensive about anything you have identified with a self that you are not. ~ A Course In Miracles 

 

4. One day the Buddha was walking through a village. A very angry and rude young man came up and began insulting him. “You have no right teaching others,” he shouted. “You are as stupid as everyone else. You are nothing but a fake!”

The Buddha was not upset by these insults. Instead he asked the young man, “Tell me, if you buy a gift for someone, and that person does not take it, to whom does the gift belong?”
The young man was surprised to be asked such a strange question and answered, “It would belong to me, because I bought the gift.”

The Buddha smiled and said, “That is correct. And it is exactly the same with your anger. If you become angry with me and I do not get insulted, then the anger falls back on you. You are then the only one who becomes unhappy, not me. All you have done is hurt yourself.”

1. Once we realize we don’t have a life, we ARE Life. It is literally Impossible to ever make a mistake, there are no accidents. There is simply no way to ever do it wrong!!

 

2. It was one of those days, and I said ‘I so desperately want to live in a world that’s at peace’. ‘You already live there’, he said. ‘What do you mean?’  Sssshhh… Listen. Do you hear it? he asked. ‘That’s you. And that’s where you live. ~ Aimee

 

3. I don’t let go of concepts—I question them. Then they let go of me. ~ Byron Katie

 

4. You are in the perfect place and time. 

The moment you realize that the Universe cannot ever make a mistake, you’ll understand how you are always in the perfect place, at the perfect time.

When you stop trying to get somewhere “better” than this moment of your life, you will arrive in Heaven on Earth. You have been searching and seeking for lifetimes and you are exhausted!  It’s time to let go of all this striving and simply relax into this final  destination you deserve.

A feeling of bliss, immense joy, and everlasting peace will instantly arise within you when you truly rest inside and let your mind take a vacation from the search. The moment you have fully accepted perfection is your natural state, then everything on your “to do” list  becomes an adventure in discovering the Divine within. It’s good to know it is always available inside you now.

Take this day to relax and explore into your “imperfections” until you see how they are all the necessary ingredients to seeing the absolute divine perfection that is within you now.

1. This is the real secret of Life – to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now… And instead of calling it work, realize it is play… ~ Alan Watts

2. May the sun bring you new energy by day… May the moon softly restore you by night…
May the rain wash away your worries… May the breeze blow new strength into your being…
May you walk gently through the world and know it’s beauty all the days of your life…
~ Apache Blessing

3. “I feel I am home. I have no desire to be anywhere else. It makes no difference now whether I am “here” or on the “other side”. It’s all just different parts of the experience of our greater, expanded Self. I have found my True home within me and it will follow me wherever I go.”

4. “If I had a prayer, it would be this: “God, spare me from the desire for love, approval or appreciation. Amen” ~ Byron Katie
