Look at
a tree,
a flower,
a plant.
Let your
awareness
rest upon it.
How still they are,
how deeply rooted in Being.
Allow nature to teach you stillness.
~Eckhart Tolle


Give up defining yourself to yourself
or to others. You won’t die. You will
come to life. And don’t be concerned
with how others define you. When they
define you, they are limiting themselves,
so it’s their problem.
Whenever you interact with people,
don’t be there primarily as a function
or a role, but as the field of conscious
Presence. You can only lose something
that you have, but you cannot lose
something that you are…

~Eckhart Tolle From:(A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose)


Love is patient and kind,
Love is not jealous, conceited,
proud or boastful, it is not arrogant,
selfish, irritable or rude.
Love does not keep a record of wrongs.
Love is not happy with evil, but is happy
with the truth.
Love never gives up, and its faith,
hope and patience never fail.
Love is eternal.

Corinthians 13:4


Patience is a form of wisdom.
It demonstrates that we understand
and accept the fact that sometimes
things must unfold in their own time.
~Jon Zinn

“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. The more separated we become from the Earth, the more hostile we become to the feminine.  We disown our passion, our creativity, and our sexuality. Eventually the Earth itself becomes a baneful place. I remember being told by a medicine woman in the Amazon, “Do you know why they are really cutting down the rain forest? Because it is wet and dark and tangled and feminine.”
Alberto Villoldo

Every act, thought, and choice adds to the permanent mosaic: Our decisions ripple
through the universe of consciousness to affect the lives of all. Every act or decision
made that supports life, supports all life, including our own.

Every child has known God.
Not the God of names,
Not the God of dont’s,
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.
Come dance!
Hafiz

Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion onto clarity… it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Melody Beattie

———————————————————————————————–

Pay attention to the gap – the gap between two thoughts, the brief, silent space between words in a conversation, between the notes of a piano or flute, or the gap between the in-breath and the out-breath. When you pay attention to those gaps, awareness of ‘something’ becomes – just awareness. The formless dimension of pure consciousness arises from within you and replaces identification with form. Eckhart Tolle

————————————————————————————————–

To get up each morning with the resolve to be happy … is to set our own conditions to the events of each day. To do this is to condition circumstances instead of being conditioned by them.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

—————————————————————————————————

Find time for silence every day. Rest in that place deep in the Heart. The authentic you can then emerge and thrive, undeterred by the chatter of others’ expectations and the noise of the world. We really
need to take that time to listen to allow our soul to guide us.
Linda Matthews

—————————————————————————————————

Everything is affected by and is part of everything else, changing constantly from one state to another. The rain becomes the river; the river surrenders to the sea and the cycle begins over again. Nothing is ever lost. The melody changes – the dance goes on.
Connie Harrison

—————————————————————————————————

The doors of perception are at our fingertips. We just need to learn to open them. It’s like learning to move/walk as a baby. Only now, we are babies in the spiritual sense. In order to grow, we must focus on keeping our energy levels high and beautiful.

Spirituality is recognizing and celebrating that we are all inextricably connected to each other by a power greater than all of us, and that our connection to that power and to one another is grounded in love and compassion. Practicing spirituality brings a sense of perspective, meaning and purpose to our lives.

Brené Brown

HEALING isn’t me healing you. It’s not me fixing you. It’s not me giving you a pill, cutting you open, or telling you what to do. Healing is YOU seeking tools, teachers, and practitioners on your path that can assist you to discover your own wisdom, find balance, listen to and honor your body, and create a meaningful quality of life that you deserve and desire. Healing is you waking up to the fullness of who you really are as a divine energetic being in this amazing world!!
You walk this path because it’s where you belong, it is no coincidence that you have found your way. Honor what’s in your heart and soul and walk your path with wisdom and pure love.

Jasmeine Moonsong

What if our religion was each other If our practice was our life If prayer, our words What if the temple was the Earth If forests were our church If holy water–the rivers, lakes, and ocean What if meditation was our relationships If the teacher was life If wisdom was self-knowledge If love was the center of our being.

Strange is our situation here upon earth.
Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why,
yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose.From the
standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we
do know: That we are here for the sake of others,for
the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are
connected by a bond of sympathy.

Many times a day, I realize how much my outer
and inner life is built upon the labors of people,
both living and dead, and how earnestly I must
exert myself in order to give in return as much
as I have received.

Albert Einstein

Happiness comes from within. It is not
dependent on external things or on other
people. You become vulnerable and can
be easily hurt when your feelings of security
and happiness depend on the behavior and
actions of other people. Never give your power
to anyone else.

Brian L. Weiss

Every person is born for a purpose.
We may know our purpose very early
in our lives, or it may take us some
time.
Very often we need to experience many
things before our purpose is clear to us.
Sometimes we pick our goals to please
others. Sometimes others pick our goals
to make themselves happy. Often this
makes us unhappy.
We need to pray to the Creator and ask
Him what our purpose is. When we live
outside our purpose, our path is full of
obstacles. When we live inside our
purpose, our path is smooth. When we
are aligned to our purpose, we are happy
and content.

Rolling Thunder,Cherokee

————————————————————————————————–

Compassion is that mysterious capacity within each of us that makes it possible for suffering that is neither our own nor of our concern, to affect us as though it were. It is that instinctive and selfless insight that reveals to us the existence of our own true being in every living creature.
Compassion is the tie that binds every human being to each other and to the mystery of creation. It is the common thread of all religions, meditations, and community structures. Compassion does not acknowledge the artificial social, economic, and religious barriers we place between ourselves and others. It acknowledges the common cry of human longings, aspirations, and tragedies. When a reflex reaction causes us to help a stranger, with no motivation other than that person is in need, or maybe in peril of his life, our compassion is in action.

Without a calm mind, emotions can lead
you astray, be led by the heart, not by
stresses on it.
