my inner knowing,
the senses of my body,
the blessings of my spirit.
Teach me to trust these things
so that I may enter my sacred space
and love beyond my fear,and thus walk
in balance with the passing of each glorious sun.
“Man did not weave the web of life – he is merely a strand in it.
Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”
Every seed is awakened and so is all animal life.
It is through this mysterious power that we too have
our being and we therefore yield to our animal
neighbors the same right as ourselves, to inhabit this land.
“Sometimes our light goes out,
but is blown again into instant
flame by an encounter with
another human being.”
When you find yourself cocooned in isolation,
And cannot find your way out of the darkness,
Remember that this is similar to the place
Where caterpillars go,
To grow their wings.
The important point of spiritual practice
is not to try to escape your life,
but to face it exactly and completely.
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.
These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep, loving concern.
Every child has known God.
Not the God of names,
Not the God of don’ts,
Not the God who ever does anything weird,
But the God who knows only four words.
And keeps repeating them, saying:
Come dance with me.
“Being a spiritual warrior is essentially a matter of heart; which is manifesting fearlessness and gentleness to help save the world. We have to be genuine, which means not having aggression and being true to oneself. In that way we can build an Enlightened society. What we need to begin with is to develop kindness towards ourselves and then develop kindness to others. It sounds very simple-minded, which it is. At the same time it is difficult to practice.Pain causes a lot of chaos and resentment, and we have to overcome that. Once we can overcome pain, we discover intrinsic joy, and we have less resentment toward the world and ourselves. Without resentment and pre-occupation and by simply being here we become cheerful. That’s it. Good Luck.”
Your journey has molded you
for the greater good.
It was exactly what needed
Don’t think you’ve lost time,
it took each and every situation
you encountered, to bring you
to the now, and now is right
We are all visitors to this time, this place.
We are just passing through.
Our purpose here is to observe, to learn,
Blessed are those who can
give without remembering
and take without forgetting.
Beauty is not in the face.
Beauty is a light in the heart.
When I’m trusting and being myself
as fully as possible, everything in my
life reflects this by falling into place
easily and often miraculously.
Listen with the ears of tolerance.
See through the eyes of compassion.
Speak with the language of love.
The beautiful things about setbacks
is they introduce us to our strengths.
Kindness in words
Kindness in thinking
Kindness in giving
A power struggle collapses when you
withdraw your energy from it.
Power struggles become uninteresting
to you when you change your intention
from winning to learning about yourself.
You must believe you are important, know who you are.
You are of great importance in the universe.
You cannot be happy without this thought in mind.
You are …important to yourselves, others and Great Spirit.
You are good and are not evil.
You need to pray to do better for yourself, others and Great Spirit.
Let no one say you are not good.
You are all good, not evil. I know nothing of evil. I am not evil.
You are not evil and will never be evil.
Be not afraid of evil. It will never touch your life unless you believe in evil.
You will live with Light when you live with Hope and Love.
You are not evil, my friends. Do not ever think this is so, for you are all good people.
No who is good can be evil.
You are good forever.
You must try to be better, even when you do not feel well or when things do not go well or when you are in the depths of despair. You are not alone.Pray for your own good as well as the good of others, your friends and your enemies.Help them to be good.
This is Love, Life, Hope, Truth, and all you are living for…
“The history of human consciousness is marked by the battle between the old awareness, the ways of fear, and the new awareness, the ways of love.”
“As soon as you awaken to the power you have, you begin to flex the muscles of your courage. Then you can dream bravely: letting go of your limiting beliefs and pushing past your fears. You can start to come up with a truly original dream that germinates in your soul and bears fruit in your life.”
“When the first chakra is disconnected from the feminine Earth, we can feel orphaned and motherless. The masculine principle predominates, and we look for security from material things. Individuality prevails over relationship, and selfish drives triumph over family, social and global responsibility.”
“We now know that whatever you vibrate, you create and attract to yourself. So, you work on healing yourself in order to create peace around you. You become peace. If there s conflict living within you, you cannot live in a world of peace. The world mirrors back to you perfectly the condition of your love and of your intent. And if the world you’re living in is not a world that is at peace and at joy and at grace, then you have to find peace, joy, and grace within you.”
“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle,accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is life, fight for it.”
~ Mother Teresa
Let us be grateful to the people
who make us happy; they are the
charming gardeners who make our
Any people anywhere, being inclined
and having the power, have the right
to rise up, and shake off the existing
government, and form a new one that
suits them better.
This is a most valuable, a most sacred right,
a right, which we hope and believe, is to
liberate the world.
Life is an echo.
What you send
out, comes back.
What you sow,
What you give,
What you see
exists in you.
Each time we let go of something
we experience another level of freedom.
Music gives a soul to the Universe,
Wings to the mind,
Flight to the imagination
and life to everything!
Let what comes, come.
Let what goes, go.
Find out what remains.
Awareness or consciousness is the ability to distinguish
between love and fear within yourself and to always choose Love.
Dreams at first seem impossible,
then seem improbable,
when we commit ourselves,
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.
Wise woman **
I knew a wise woman
And she said to me.
That the river would mold me
And the wild wind would cool
That the trickster the coyote
he would fool me.
That father sun would
warm me, mother earth
would clothe me.
would greet me and of the
old ways she would teach me.
Wise woman, she told me
to always walk lightly.
Tread the earth ever gently,
lovingly, so preciously.
And take from her sparingly.
She said, to share with others
what you have learned from me.
Be still and breathe, ever patiently,
for the web of life has woven what
is to be, but you must still chose
your own path, you will see.
And lastly, the wise woman said
to me to listen to the wise one
that dwells within me.
To walk my path in balance
is too be free.
More than just words
So might it be.
When you open yourself to the continually changing,
impermanent, dynamic nature of your own being and
of reality, you increase your capacity to love and care
about other people and your capacity to not be afraid.
You’re able to keep your eyes open, your heart open,
and your mind open. And you notice when you get
caught up in prejudice, bias, and aggression.
You develop an enthusiasm for no longer watering
those negative seeds, from now until the day you die.
And, you begin to think of your life as offering endless
opportunities to start to do things differently.
I have learned to give.
Not because I have too much
but because I know the feeling of not having.
Don’t go through life,
grow through life.
Be easy on yourself.
There is not one single
flawless person on Earth.
We all fall short!
All you need is already within you,
only you must approach yourself
with reverence and love.
Self-condemnation and self-distrust
are grievous errors.
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our
deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve
the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so
that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are
all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make
manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in
some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light
shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do
the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our
presence automatically liberates others.
When another person makes you suffer,
it is because he suffers deeply within
himself and his suffering is spilling over.
He does not need punishment,
he needs help.
Thich Naht Hanh
You must not lose faith in humanity.
Humanity is like an ocean, if a few
drops of the ocean are dirty, the
ocean does not become dirty.
Beauty is not in the face.
Beauty is a light in the heart.
