1. There is force in the universe, which, if we permit it, will flow through us and produce miraculous results. ~ Mahatma Gandhi

2.  When the heart opens completely, you will stumble upon the most powerful force in the universe ~ your loving eternal presence.

~ Matt Kahn

3. The ship is going by a mighty engine and you are busy rowing. ~ Mooji

4. When we are in our flow, we are too busy being in our flow to need to notice what “others” are doing.
We are too busy in our own ‘power’ to need to.

5. Giving Your Gift: Do not make the mistake of thinking that you have no gift to give. Everyone has a gift. Your gift brings joy to yourself and to others. It helps you step forward and express yourself. It breaks down the barriers of separation, helps you connect authentically with others. ~ Paul Ferrini

6. Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go to that. Because what the world needs are people who have come alive. ~ Harold Whitman

7. Level One, The Authentic Self: “When we reside in the harmony of our Authentic Self, we have the potential to love unconditionally… if someone were to say or do something insulting when we are residing in Level One, it wouldn’t bother us. Their words and actions would fall off us like loose garments, as there is nothing in us for them to stick to. Because our love is not based on a behavior that we agree with or find acceptable, we love them even through such instances.” – don Miguel Ruiz Jr.  The Five Levels of Attachment

1. If you’re alone in a room and you’re suffering, eventually it will dawn on you that you’re the one who’s causing it. Checkmate. ~ Bryon Katie

 

2. Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts. ~ Buddha

 

3. Is our personal spiritual quest selfish? Our mind is the only mind that we can be vigilant with – the only mind we can use to choose again. And yet, there is no self that is separate from all of us. Therefore, any progress that any one of us makes towards peace and love is beneficial to all of us. In fact, our own awakening is the greatest contribution any one of us can make for the good of all, including our loved ones. Accepting the atonement for our self is the way that I save the world. Thanks Benny

 

4. Can you live with all the ups and downs of the human experience and still be conscious of, and nurtured by, the truth of who you are?  YES! Awakening is not just for the sages of the past sitting on a mountaintop. It is for you. !~ Gangaji

 

5. What I resist has a tendency to persist because I am putting energy into it and perpetuating it by focusing on it. The more successful I am at just witnessing suffering and the sufferer, without identifying with any of it, the less urgency I feel about having to resist – and the more quickly it passes. Such is the power of acceptance and surrender.

 

Hurt your feelings

1. Most of us do not see our beliefs. Instead our beliefs tell us what we see. This is the simple difference between clarity and confusion.

2. Have you ever notice that worry is more concerned with what could happen than what actually is happening? Do not exchange the peace of this moment for a story of misperception.

3. When you deeply appreciate and look forward to people criticizing you, you’re FREE. ~ Byron Katie

4. We are “getting there” when our intention to be helpful and to represent Him who sent us overshadows the ego based craving for attention and external validation.

Always had the Power

1. I am grateful for this day. Looking through the eyes of Love, all I see is the power and grace of Love. No matter the circumstances, I choose Love. For this, I am Grateful. ~ Eugene D. Holden 

 

2. “To me, the whole of Life is holy (Wholly). All that exists is Holy, unconditionally Holy. I don’t have any condemnation for anything.” OSHO

 

3. “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 through the world, and know its beauty all the days of your life.” Apache Blessing

 

4. “Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” – Rainer Maria Rilke

1. There is no security for those who seek it outside of themselves. I am Love, as long as I seek it from you, I can’t know that… ~ Bryon Katie

 

2. An “enemy” presents you with nothing but the opportunity to change your mind.

 

3. We can choose to hold a white-knuckled, painful death grip on the past; yet, after all the pain and numbness subsists, we can open our hands and see nothing was ever there to grip onto.   People will say, “Well, I have to work on my goals,” or, “I have to work on my visualization.” And we want you to think more about holding the vision because it is pleasurable to hold the vision, not because you’re trying to make the vision work in order to get to some place that you’re not now standing. “How much should I work?” We would say, work in the sense of joyously moving forward. ~Abraham

 

4. The Power of Light: Light does not resist or avoid darkness.  It merely includes it, welcomes it.  Thus, darkness disappears into the light.  Light is not afraid of the shadow for it knows the appearance of the shadow is the first sign of illumination.  When the shadow cannot provoke our fear, it has no power to undermine us. ~ Paul Ferrini

1. Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t. – Steve Maraboli

 

2. Taking off the Mask: The persona and the behavior associated with it is just a mask. If you see only the mask, you won’t see who the other person is. If s/he sees only your mask, s/he will not see you truly. ~ Paul Ferrini

 

3. Suffering is a product of limited knowledge. ~ Sri Sri Ravishankar

 

4. When we slow down we allow the Universe to work on our behalf.

 

5. The Wrong Choice?: You think your problem lies in making the wrong choice. Yet every choice is an opportunity to learn. It cannot be wrong, unless your refuse to learn from your mistakes. ~ Paul Ferrini

 

6. “Life is love, dearest. All else is imagined confusion.” ~Byron Katie

1. If we defend ourselves we are attacked. By planning for the defense of a self that we are not we are attacking the Self that we ARE. And if we feel defensive about anything we have identified with a self that we are not.

 

2. The emptiness I speak about is not the emptiness the mind imagines. It is not blank. Your body can continue expressing in a natural way. Intelligence is there. Emotions can come. Everything can play, but inside there is total serenity and peace. No planning, no strategising, no personal identity is there. Just the space of pure being. It is what we are, but we dream and believe we are not. ~ Mooji

 

3. Bringing Love:  Every block to love lies in your heart and it is there that it must be dissolved. Don’t wait for heaven to come to spread your love around. Do it now. For heaven is in your eyes when you see with compassion. It is in your hands when you reach out to help. It is in your mind when you see “good” instead of “evil.” How you see the world determines what the world will be for you. So do not seek to change other people or the world around you. Look instead only at yourself and you will find the place where Love begins. ~ Paul Ferrini

 

4. “Once a painful concept is met with understanding, the next time it appears you may find it interesting. What used to be the nightmare is now just interesting. The next time it appears, you may find it funny. The next time, you may not even notice it. This is the power of loving what is.” – Byron Katie
