Quotes of the day... 5/12/15

why we are making things happen.

or rather I cast out all circumstance, 
for it was not outside me,

Quotes of the day... 5/11/15

to see what his neighbor says or does or thinks, 
but only at what he does himself.

of asking yourself in relation to 
any action taken by another: 
"What is his point of reference here?" 
But begin with yourself: examine yourself first.
     ~ Marcus Aurelius 

Take full account of what excellencies you possess, 
and in gratitude remember how you would 
hanker after them, if you had them not.

Word to your (inner) Mother!

How timely of harmonizing #Venus to slip into Cancer, the sign of motherhood, right before #MothersDay. We all have "mother energy" in us -the capacity to nurture, connect and empathize. Today we honor the capital-M Mother in every person, the human instinct/ability to give a damn about someone other than ourselves, whether we are parents or not.

~ Astrotwins

Happy Mother's Day!

But the mother's yearning,
the essence of real human love,
feels the presence of the cherished child
even in the debased, degraded man.
      ~ George Eliot

Anyone can embody the essence of motherly love.
The "I'll be by your side, unconditional, 
back you up no matter what" love.
That essence expressed 
is the noblest gift to the world.
     ~ Angie Ducharme
