WE ARE HERE, essentially, to risk ourselves in the world, we are a form of invitation to others and to otherness; we seem meant to hazard ourselves for the right thing, for the right woman or the right man, for a son or a daughter, for the right work or for a gift given against all the odds. And in all this continual risking the most profound courage may be found in just the simple willingness to allow ourselves, amidst the hazard and vulnerability, to be happy along the way… ~ David Whyte

1. My speaking is meant to shake you awake, not to tell you how to dream better. – Adyashanti  

 

2. If you see the illusion you are enlightened, but if you think that you are enlightened, you are in the illusion. – Papaji

 

3. Truth is not just about what we say…it is the realization that what we’ve created, individually or collectively, is illusion. As we awaken, truth gets revealed to us…It sometimes rocks our “here and now” existence, creates feelings of pain or loss in the moment…but it also sets us free. When we free ourselves from the illusions, we can return to our own power.

 

4. Do not think that enlightenment is going to make you special, it’s not. If you feel special in any way, then enlightenment has not occurred. I meet a lot of people who think they are enlightened and awake simply because they have had a very moving spiritual experience. They wear their enlightenment on their sleeve like a badge of honor. They sit among friends and talk about how awake they are while sipping coffee at a cafe. The funny thing about enlightenment is that when it is authentic, there is no one to claim it. Enlightenment is very ordinary; it is nothing special. Rather than making you more special, it is going to make you less special. It plants you right in the center of a wonderful humility and innocence. Everyone else may or may not call you enlightened, but when you are enlightened the whole notion of enlightenment and someone who is enlightened is a big joke. I use the word enlightenment all the time; not to point you toward it but to point you beyond it. Do not get stuck in enlightenment. – Adyashanti

 

5. Today We Affirm:  In my world, there is magic even in the mundane. I am not looking for special people or special moments. This moment is enough and I am sufficient for the moment. By Grace, I see my world with loving gentle eyes and I allow myself to be just as I am, and just as I am not. Therefore, I release all others to be just as they are. I will not push or bully myself today but instead I walk with the Mighty Ones Who guide me down the gentle paths of freedom, love and peace. ~ Jacob Glass

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

 

My Life gets more fabulous everyday
