What we must try to be, of course, is ourselves and wholeheartedly.

3.19.2013

What we must try to be, of course, is ourselves and wholeheartedly. We must find out what we really are and what we really want.
~ Nelson Boswell

When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and your discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.
~ Patanjali

I live in the space of thankfulness – and I have been rewarded a million times over for it. I started out giving thanks for small things, and the more thankful I became, the more my bounty increased. That’s because what you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it. Opportunities, relationships, even money flowed my way when I learned to be grateful no matter what happened in my life.
~ Oprah Winfrey

 

Fear was my primary emotion and the stimulus for the lack in my life. It was a spiritual move on my part (with God’s help) that dissolved the fear and opened the gates to the kingdom.

I know this now. Every man gives his life for what he believes.

2.18.2013

I know this now. Every man gives his life for what he believes. Every woman gives her life for what she believes. Sometimes people believe in little or nothing yet they give their lives to that little or nothing. One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. And then it is gone. But to sacrifice what you are and live without belief, that’s more terrible than dying.
~ Joan of Arc

Each of us has a fire in our hearts for something. It’s our goal in life to find it and to keep it lit.
~ Mary Lou Retton

Every year I live I am more convinced that the waste of life lies in the love we have not given, the powers we have not used, the selfish prudence that will risk nothing, and which shirking pain, misses happiness as well. No one ever yet was the poorer in the long run for having once in a lifetime “let out all the length of all the reins.”
~ Mary Cholomondeley

 

 

I got to know myself and I began to know God; when those two came together… my life really took off.

Compassion is more important than intellect…

3.14.2013

Compassion is more important than intellect in calling forth the love that the work of peace needs, and intuition can often be a far more powerful searchlight than cold reason.
~ Betty Williams

 

The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the interdependence of all these living beings, which are all part of one another, and all involved in one another.
~ Thomas Merton

The greatest degree of inner tranquility comes from the development of love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being.
~ Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama

 

 

Compassion requires a level of understanding that preempts a return to humanity…it’s a spiritual tool.

By choosing your thoughts…

3.8.2013

By choosing your thoughts, and by selecting which emotional currents you will release and which you will reinforce, you determine the quality of your Light. You determine the effects that you will have upon others, and the nature of the experiences of your life.
~ Gary Zukav

Our minds become magnetized with the dominating thoughts we hold in our minds and these magnets attract to us the forces, the people, the circumstances of life which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts.
~ Napoleon Hill

The game of life is the game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later, with astounding accuracy.
~ Florence Shinn

 

 

Thoughts are the beginning of the process, because thoughts really don’t go anywhere without a decision…followed by action.
