Quotes of the day... 9/4/15

Great thinkers taught we either go through life 
learning and struggling, or we listen to our intuition.
     ~ Temple Hayes

Our understanding creates concepts that 
ironically keep us at a distance from those 
moments of amazement we truly seek.
     ~ Ivan Kelly

The man who has no inner life 
is the slave of his surroundings. 
     ~ Henri Frederic Amiel

Quotes of the day... 9/3/15

Do we really think our opinions are right for all?
Be open minded.

How do our thoughts make us feel?
We are what we think.

React less, observe more.
Reaction blocks, observation allows.

If I were the plaything of every thought,
I would be a fool, not a wise man. 
     ~ Rumi, via Zen Moments

Quotes of the day... 9/1/15

“Compassion is... one of the most healing forces on the planet. We can only experience compassion when we catch ourselves judging other people, and instead, try to step into their shoes. Easier said than done? Oh, yeah.

We’re judge-a-minute machines by nature. But judgments keep us divided, which leads to a deep sense of existential loneliness. That awakens compulsive, controlling behaviors, the ones that send us spiraling into unhappiness, addiction and manipulation.

Who have you been judging in your life? Do an experiment and try to view this person through a lens of compassion. What do you see? Where are they struggling?

If you’ve been un-compassionate toward yourself, where could you be kinder?”

~ Ophira and Tali Edut

Quotes of the day... 9/1/15

Wayne Dyer (May 10, 1940 – August 29, 2015)

I am realistic – I expect miracles.”

The more you see yourself
as what you'd like to become,
and act as if what you want
is already there, the more
you'll activate those dormant
forces that will collaborate to
transform your dream into your reality.”

You'll see it when you believe it.”
