1. We are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not. Our actions and state of mind matters, because we are so deeply interconnected with one another. ~ Ram Dass 

 

2. “To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one’s self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived – this is to have succeeded.”  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

3. By being with yourself, the ‘I am’, by watching yourself in your daily life with alert interest, with the intention to understand rather than to judge, in full acceptance of whatever may emerge, because it is there, you encourage the deep to come to the surface and enrich your life and consciousness with its captive energies. This is the great work of awareness; it removes obstacles and releases energies by understanding the nature of life and mind. Intelligence is the door to freedom and alert attention is the mother of intelligence. ~ NISARGADATTA

 

4. “The journey to the cross should be the last “useless journey.” Do not dwell upon it, but dismiss it as accomplished. If you can accept it as your own last useless journey, you are also free to join my resurrection. Until you do so your life is indeed wasted.” – A Course in Miracles

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

1. “I never made ONE of my discoveries through the process of rational thinking. ~ Albert Einstein

 

2. “Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” ~ Apple Inc.

 

3, Make yourself a target for grace, make yourself irresistible to it.  ~ Gangaji

 

4. “The nightmare becomes laughter with understanding.” ~ Byron Katie

1. “Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” ~ Buddha

 

2. What do you value? What is important to you? Where do you look to find your happiness? Simply take an honest look at what you do with your spare time and energy. (Think about what you are thinking about) That is what is important to you. That is where you look to find happiness. What you do attests to what you believe. Actions speak louder than words. What is important to you? Is what you do in alignment with what you say?

 

3. Ever look around at all the stuff you have and feel empty? Go to shows that used to thrill you and feel flat? Throw party or go to parties and end up feeling blue? Hook up with the hot guy or girl and feel meh? Good! That is our Soul/Spirit calling us IN deeper… to the Truth of our ever-expanding, never-boring, ecstatic Self. We can have all the pretty toys and tricks, pony shows and kicks our little egoic mind desires and it will never quench the thirst of the Soul’s longing to remember itself. Often, in this culture, we run to a doctor, a catalog, or another stimulant looking for that next high or low when each of us carry a whole natural pharmacy of healing remedies inside. When we stop chasing the external, sit still and quiet long enough, and are sincere enough in our desire… eventually, we will hear the voice of our own broken heart calling us back home again to our original Self, the Self that needs nothing outside to feel happy, grateful or alive. Sit. Weep. Pray ♥ You, of all people, deserve your own pure and holy/Wholly Love

 

4. “Children perceive terrifying ghosts and monsters and dragons, and they are terrified. but if they ask someone they trust for the REAL meaning of what they perceive, and are willing to LET THEIR INTERPRETATIONS GO in favor of Reality, their fear goes with them. When a child is helped to translate his “ghost” into a curtain, his “monster” into a shadow, and his “dragon” into a dream, he is no longer afraid, and laughs happily at his own fear. You, my children, are afraid of your Brothers, and of your Father, and of yourselves. But you are merely deceived in them. 

Ask what they are of the Teacher of Reality, and hearing His answer, you too will laugh at your fears and replace them with Peace. For fear lies not in Reality, but in the minds of children who do not understand reality. It is only their lack of understanding that frightens them, and when they learn to perceive truly they are not afraid.” ~ Foundation for Inner Peace…
