Quotes of the day... 5/27/16

“Thinkers aren't limited by what they know, 
because they can always increase what they know. 
Rather they're limited by what puzzles them, 
because there's no way to become curious 
about something that doesn't puzzle you.”
     ~ Daniel Quinn 

To the eternal observer, the future is 
a recognition of what is potentially true; 
an idea that, with attention, grows stronger.

Don't dig up in doubt
what you planted in faith.

Quotes of the day... 5/26/16

“Do I have to be feeling 
the way I am feeling right now?
Are the assumptions and stories 
making me feel this way necessary and true?”
     ~ Chloe Carlson

“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives 
are princesses and princes 
who are only waiting 
to see us act with beauty and courage. 
Perhaps everything that frightens us is, 
in its deepest essence, 
something helpless that wants our love.”
     ~adapted, Rainer Maria Rilke

the whole world beat to my drum?" 
No, nor could you. You beat your drum, 
and the Universe will respond 
to the drum that you are beating… 
There are as many different worlds 
being lived by as many different perceivers 
of the world as there are 
perceivers of the worlds.”
     ~ Esther Hicks

Quotes of the day... 5/24/16

“It's the idea that people living 
close to nature tend to be noble. 
It's seeing all those sunsets that does it. 
You can't watch a sunset and then go off 
and set fire to your neighbor's tepee. 
Living close to nature is wonderful 
for your mental health.”
     ~ Daniel Quinn 

May the forests be with
you and your family.
     ~adapted, Daniel Quinn

Quotes of the day... 5/23/16

“Always say “yes” to the present moment. 
What could be more futile, more insane, 
than to create inner resistance to what already is? 
What could be more insane than to oppose life itself, 
which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. 
Say “yes” to life — and see how life suddenly starts 
working for you rather than against you.”
     ~ Eckhart Tolle

“The world will never starve for want of wonders; 
but only for want of wonder.”
     ~ G. K. Chesterton 

“The most incredible thing about miracles 
is that they happen.”
     ~ G.K. Chesterton
