You take yourself to be limited, but you are not.
Stay silent and attentive. Be earnest about it.
Just be aware of your being here and now.
Reality will find you.
~
Once you realize that all comes from within,
that the world in which you live is not projected onto you,
but by you, your fear comes to an end.

"sadness and depression are very different experiences. Sadness is a natural response to certain stimuli. It often results in tears and full breathing. It can be a powerful, rich, enlivening experience. Depression, on the other hand, is often the result of blocking sadness, or of blocking anger."

― Rick Carson, Taming Your Gremlin: A Surprisingly Simple Method for Getting Out of Your Own Way


"I free myself not by trying to be free, but by simply noticing how I am imprisoning myself in the very moment I am imprisoning myself" ― Rick Carson


"When we are depressed, we have a sense of being deadened and blocked. When we fully experience our sadness, we may not feel on top of the world, but we will feel very much alive and may even have a sense of wellbeing. Most importantly, when we experience our emotions fully, we will eventually move through them to a new feeling space. On the other hand, if we avoid our emotions, we tend to stay stuck in a particular emotional state."

― Rick Carson


"Change your conception of yourself and you will automatically change the world in which you live. Do not try to change people; they are only messengers telling you who you are. Revalue yourself and they will confirm the change."

― Neville Goddard, Your Faith is Your Fortune


"Chance or accident is not responsible for the things that happen to you, nor is predestined fate the author of your fortune or misfortune. Your subconscious impressions determine the conditions of your world. The subconscious is not selective; it is impersonal and no respecter of persons. The subconscious is not concerned with the truth or falsity of your feeling. It always accepts as true that which you feel to be true. Feeling is the assent of the subconscious to the truth of that which is declared to be true. Because of this quality of the subconscious there is nothing impossible to man. Whatever the mind of man can conceive and feel as true, the subconscious can and must objectify. Your feelings create the pattern from which your world is fashioned, and a change of feeling is a change of pattern."

― Neville Goddard



"I AM wealthy, poor, healthy, sick, free, confined were first of all impressions or conditions felt before they became visible expressions. Your world is your consciousness objectified. Waste no time trying to change the outside; change the within or the impression; and the without or expression will take care of itself. When the truth of this statement dawns upon you, you will know that you have found the lost word or the key to every door. I AM (your consciousness) is the magical lost word which was made flesh in the likeness of that which you are conscious of being."

― Neville Goddard. Your Faith is Your Fortune

It is not the end of the physical body that should worry us.
Rather, our concern must be to live while we're alive -- to release
our inner selves from the spiritual death that comes with living
behind a facade designed to conform to external definitions of
who and what we are.

~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross ~


Someday I'll be a weather-beaten skull resting on a grass pillow,
Serenaded by a stray bird or two.
Kings and commoners end up the same,
No more enduring than last night's dream.

~ Ryokan


It's only when we truly know and understand that we have a
limited time on earth, and that we have no way of knowing when
our time is up, we will then begin to live each day to the fullest,
as if it was the only one we had.

~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross


I said to Life,
"I would hear Death speak."
And Life raised her voice a little higher and said,
"You hear him now."

~ Khalil Gibran ~


Death twitches my ear. "Live," he says, "I am coming."

~ Virgil


Let death be daily before your eyes, and you will never entertain
any abject thought, nor too eagerly covet anything.

~ Epictetus


For those who seek to understand it, death is a highly creative force.
The highest spiritual values of life can originate from the thought
and study of death.

~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross


The world is so exquisite, with so much love and moral depth, that
there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which
there's little good evidence. Far better, it seems to me, in our vulnera-
bility, is to look Death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the
brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides.

~ Carl Sagan


Tell your friends, "Look, it's Spring, the buds are sweet, the
water sparkles, everyone is joyful. We are going to die.

~ Mahabharata


Live as if you were to die tomorrow.

~ Mahatma Gandhi


Rehearse death. To say this is to tell a person to rehearse his
freedom. A person who has learned how to die has unlearned
how to be a slave.

~ Seneca


You want to live, but do you know how to live? You are scared
of dying -- and tell me, is the kind of life you lead really any
different from being dead?

~ Seneca


Death is an endless night so awful to contemplate that it can
make us love life and value it with such passion that it may
be the ultimate cause of all joy and of all art.

~ Paul Theroux

If you remember me, then I don't care if everyone else forgets.

~ Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore


Sometimes fate is like a small sandstorm that keeps changing directions. You change direction but the sandstorm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. Over and over you play this out, like some ominous dance with death just before dawn. Why? Because this storm isn't something that blew in from far away, something that has nothing to do with you. This storm is you. Something inside of you. So all you can do is give in to it, step right inside the storm, closing your eyes and plugging up your ears so the sand doesn't get in, and walk through it, step by step. There's no sun there, no moon, no direction, no sense of time. Just fine white sand swirling up into the sky like pulverized bones. That's the kind of sandstorm you need to imagine.

And you really will have to make it through that violent, metaphysical, symbolic storm. No matter how metaphysical or symbolic it might be, make no mistake about it: it will cut through flesh like a thousand razor blades. People will bleed there, and you will bleed too. Hot, red blood. You'll catch that blood in your hands, your own blood and the blood of others.

And once the storm is over you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won't be the same person who walked in. That's what this storm's all about.

~ Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore


I have this strange feeling that I'm not myself anymore. It's hard to put into words, but I guess it's like I was fast asleep, and someone came, disassembled me, and hurriedly put me back together again. That sort of feeling.

~ Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart


What makes us the most normal," said Reiko, "is knowing that we're not normal.

~ Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood


Even the darkest, thickest cloud shines silver when viewed from above.

~ Haruki Murakami, Killing Commendatore

"Should you shield the canyons from the windstorms
you would never see the true beauty of their carvings."
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross


"People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in,
their true beauty is revealed
only if there is a light from within."
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross


"The opinion which other people have of you
is their problem, not yours."
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross


"It is very important that you only do what you love to do.
you may be poor, you may go hungry, you may lose your car,
you may have to move into a shabby place to live, but you will totally live.
And at the end of your days you will bless your life
because you have done what you came here to do.
Otherwise, you will live your life as a prostitute, you will do things only for a reason,
to please other people, and you will never have lived. and you will not have a pleasant death."
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross


"There is no need to go to India or anywhere else to find peace.
You will find that deep place of silence right in your room, your garden or even your bathtub."

Nothing unreal exists.

Love holds no grievances.

"There is an ancient peace you carry in your heart and have not lost."
- A Course In Miracles ~

Light is unlimited, and spreads across this world in quiet joy. ~ACIM

You dream of isolation because your eyes are closed. ACIM

Sit quietly and look upon the world you see, and tell yourself:
The real world is not like this.
It has no buildings and there are no streets where people walk alone and separate.
There are no stores where people buy an endless list of things they do not need.
It is not lit with artificial light, and night comes not upon it.
There is no day that brightens and grows dim. There is no loss.
Nothing is there but shines, and shines forever.

Forgiveness can truly be called salvation.
It is the means by which illusions disappear.
- ACIM

You are a child of God, a priceless part of His Kingdom,
which He created as part of Him.
Nothing else exists and only this is real.
You have chosen a sleep in which you have had bad dreams,
but the sleep is not real and God calls you to awake.
~ ACIM

You are at home in God, dreaming of exile but perfectly capable of awakening to reality.
Is it your decision to do so?
You recognize from your own experience that what you see in dreams you think is real while you are asleep.
Yet the instant you waken you realize that everything that seemed to happen in the dream did not happen at all.
You do not think this strange, even though all the laws of what you awaken to were violated while you slept.
Is it not possible that you merely shifted from one dream to another, without really waking?

~ A Course In Miracles ~

The ego is insane.
In fear it stands beyond the Everywhere, apart from All, in separation from the Infinite…
It dreams of punishment, and trembles at the figures in its dreams;…
- ACIM -

Can you imagine what it means to have no cares, no worries, no anxieties,
but merely to be perfectly calm and quiet all the time?
Yet that is what time is for; to learn just that and nothing more.
~ Course

Every decision you make stems from what you think you are,
and represents the value that you put upon yourself. ~ ACIM~

"Would you be hostage to the ego or host to God?"
Every decision you make is for Heaven or for hell,
and brings you the awareness of what you decided for.
~ A Course In Miracles

This is God's Final Judgment:
"You are still My holy Son, forever innocent, forever loving and forever loved,
as limitless as your Creator, and completely changeless and forever pure.
Therefore awaken and return to Me. I am your Father and you are My Son."

@Xernarot , always glad to see another who appreciates Murakami.

This is the second part of the quote, maybe someone can resonate, but sometimes the storm would never be over… :

"… And you really will have to make it through that violent, metaphysical, symbolic storm. No matter how metaphysical or symbolic it might be, make no mistake about it: it will cut through flesh like a thousand razor blades. People will bleed there, and you will bleed too. Hot, red blood. You'll catch that blood in your hands, your own blood and the blood of others.
And once the storm is over you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won't be the same person who walked in. That's what this storm's all about."

― by Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the shore.
"Unfortunately, the clock is ticking, the hours are going by. The past increases, the future recedes. Possibilities decreasing, regrets mounting."

The Story of Markandeya

A long time ago, all living creatures had perished. The world
was no more than a sea - a gray, misty, icy swamp. One old
man remained, all alone, spared from the devastation. His
name was Markandeya.

He walked and walked in the stale water, exhausted, finding
no shelter anywhere, no trace of life. He was in despair, his
throat taut with inexpressible sorrow. Suddenly, not knowing
why, he turned and saw behind him a tree rising out of the
marsh, a fig tree, and at the foot of the tree a very beautiful,
smiling child. Markandeya stopped, breathless, reeling, unable
to understand why the child was there.

And the child said to him: "I see you need to rest. Come
into my body."

The old man suddenly experienced utter disdain for long
life. The child opened his mouth, a great wind rose up, an
irresistible gust swept Markandeya towards the mouth.
Despite himself he went in, just as he was, and dropped
down in the child's belly. There, looking round, he saw a
stream, trees, herds of cattle. He saw women carrying water,
a city, streets, crowds, rivers.

Yes, in the belly of the child he saw the entire earth, calm,
beautiful; he saw the ocean, he saw the limitless sky. He
walked for a long while, for more than a hundred years,
without reaching the end of the body. Then the wind rose up
again, he felt himself drawn upward; he came out through
the same mouth and saw the child under the fig tree.

The child looked at him with a smile and said, "I hope you
have had a good rest."

~ Jean-Claude Carrière, The Mahabharata ~

-------------------------------------

There is another story about a great sage, Narada, who came to Vishnu. (God)

When Narada came to Vishnu, he said,
"What is the secret of your Maya?" (illusion, magic) And Vishnu took him and threw him into a pool.

The moment he fell under the water he was born as a princess in a very great family,
and went through all the experiences of childhood as a little girl.

She finally married a prince from another kingdom and went to live with him in his kingdom.
They lived there in tremendous prosperity, with palaces and peacocks,
but suddenly there was a war and their kingdom was attacked and utterly destroyed.
The prince himself was killed in battle, and he was cremated.

As a dutiful wife, the princess was about to throw herself weeping onto the funeral pyre and burn herself in an act of Sati, or self-sacrifice.
But suddenly, Narada woke to find himself being pulled out of the pool by his hair by Vishnu, who said: "For whom were you weeping?"

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

"Let everything happen to you
Beauty and terror
Just keep going
No feeling is final"
Rainer Maria Rilke

A billion stars go spinning through the night,
blazing high above your head.
But in you is the presence that will be,
when all those stars are dead.
~ Rainer Maria Rilke ~

"Do not assume that he who seeks to comfort you now,
lives untroubled among the simple and quiet words
that sometimes do you good. His life may also have
much sadness and difficulty, that remains far beyond yours.
Were it otherwise, he would never have been able to find these words."
Rainer Maria Rilke

If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself,
tell yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches;
for to the creator there is no poverty and no poor indifferent place.
~ Rilke ~

Find out the reason that commands you to write;
see whether it has spread its roots into the very depth of your heart;
confess to yourself you would have to die if you were forbidden to write.
~ Rilke ~

It is spring again.
The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.
~ Rilke ~

"Let life happen to you. Believe me: life is in the right, always."
Rainer Marie Rilke

"If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow"
Rainer Maria Rilke

"May what I do flow from me like a river, no forcing and no holding back, the way it is with children."
Rainer Maria Rilke

"You are not too old
and it is not too late
to dive into your increasing depths
where life calmly gives out
its own secret."
Rilke

"The necessary thing is after all but this;
solitude, great inner solitude. Going into oneself for hours
meeting no one - this one must be able to attain."
~ Rilke ~

"This is what the things can teach us:
to fall, patiently to trust our heaviness.
Even a bird has to do that before he can fly."
- Rilke -

"Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone.
Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety.
Your breath can radiate love or muddy the room in depression.
Your glance can awaken joy. Your words can inspire freedom.
Your every act can open hearts and minds."
David Deida

"If you are waiting for anything in order to live and love without holding back, then you suffer.
Every moment is the most important moment of your life.
No future time is better than now to let down your guard and love."
David Deida

"The most loving women are the women who will test you the most.
She wants you to be your fullest, most magnificent self.
She won't settle for anything less. She knows it is true of you.
She knows in your deepest heart you are free, you are Shiva.
Anything less than that she will torment.
And, as you know, she's quite good at it."
David Deida

"If you don't know your purpose, discover it, now.

The core of your life is your purpose.
Everything in your life, from your diet to your career,
must be aligned with your purpose if you are to act with coherence and integrity in the world.
If you know your purpose, your deepest desire, then the secret of success is to discipline your life
so that you support your deepest purpose and minimize distractions and detours."
David Deida

"Men who have lived significant lives are men who never waited:
not for money, security, ease, or women.
Feel what you want to give most as a gift,
to your woman and to the world, and do what you can to give it today.
Every moment waited is a moment wasted,
and each wasted moment degrades your clarity of purpose."
David Deida

"A fearful man who knows he is fearful is far more trustable
than a fearful man who isn't aware of his fear."
David Deida

"Your fear is the sharpest definition of your self. You should know it.
You should feel it virtually constantly. Fear needs to become your friend,
so that you are no longer uncomfortable with it."
David Deida

"As long as life continues, the creative challenge is to tussle, play,
and make love with the present moment while giving your unique gift."
David Deida

"You are that which you seek, but you have left your own deepness and are looking elsewhere.
The stress of not finding it creates its own need to be released. And so the cycle continues.
You are chasing your own tail, and much of the time that tail looks suspiciously like a woman."
David Deida

"A life lived well embraces death by feeling open, from heart to all, in every moment.
Wide open, you can offer without holding back, you can receive without pushing away."
David Deida

"Knowing the truth is fairly useless; feeling it is profound; living it makes all the difference."
David Deida

"The superior man is not seeking fulfillment through work and woman,
because he is already full. For him, work and intimacy are opportunities to give his gifts,
and be vanished in the bliss of the giving."
David Deida

What fault of mine most nearly resembles the one I am about to criticize?"

Marcus Aurelius

"Do not act as if you were going to live ten thousand years. Death hangs over you.
While you live, while it is in your power, be good."
Marcus Aurelius

"Here is a rule to remember in future, when anything tempts you to feel bitter:
not "This is misfortune," but "To bear this worthily is good fortune."

"How much time he gains who does not look to see what his neighbor says or does or thinks,
but only at what he does himself, to make it just and holy."
Marcus Aurelius,

Marcus Aurelius

"You are a little soul carrying about a corpse, as Epictetus used to say."

"Think of yourself as dead. You have lived your life. Now, take what's left and live it properly.
What doesn't transmit light creates its own darkness."

That rambles in the road alone,

A passing universe put on;
And independent as the sun,
Associates or glows alone,
Fulfilling absolute decree
In casual simplicity."

Teal Swan, The Completion Process

"We are afraid of what will be in the room with us if we stop being busy."
Teal Swan

"If you remove yourself far enough from the limited point of view of pain,
you will see that at the root of all things that are negative in this world
is the physical fact that we are all nothing but the victims of victims."
Teal Swan

"I was unfixable, I saw that my innocence didn't go anywhere.
Like the tiny flame on the end of a matchstick, it may have flickered, but it didn't die.
I found my inherent goodness again. I found the part of me that couldn't be harmed
by the people who found a way to harm everything else about me.
Gradually, I began to reparent myself. By loving and caring for my inner child."
Teal Swan

"But you will know the more you get in touch with your transcendental mind (and therefore truth)
that there is no such thing as a victim. The negative benefits you more than anything else
in your evolution and the evolution of all that is."
Teal Swan

"A thousand times we die in one life.
We crumble, break and tear apart until the layers of illusion are burned away
and all that is left, is the truth of who and what we really are."
Teal Swan

"Truly happy people see the value in negativity."
Teal Swan

"Observing and then letting go is one of the most important skills to acquire
in the quest to create positive change, as is knowledge of stillness."
Teal Swan

"Frustration to what has been binds you to what has been.
Healthy acceptance sets you free."
Teal Swan

"Never downplay the power and importance of imagination.
Nothing manifests in your reality without having been imagined first.
Every single thing that you eventually bring to life has been imagined first."
Teal Swan

"The truth is that an enlightened person has made a practice of releasing all resistance from his or her being.
It's not that they never experience conflict or pain. It's that they are willing to be open to experiencing conflict and pain."
Teal Swan

"All too often, people take no action until the fear goes away.
But life cannot be lived like that.
It cannot be lived like that any more than it can be lived in spite of fear."
Teal Swan

"Stop trying to feel better, instead become better at feeling."
Teal Swan

"Do you give yourself enough attention? Do you settle for second best?
When you look in the mirror, does your attention immediately gravitate toward flaws?
When you are sad, do you tell yourself to "get over it"?
Do you try to suppress or silence your feelings by being passive-aggressive or indulging in an addiction?"
Teal Swan, Shadows Before Dawn

"It's not your job to like me - it's mine"
Byron Katie

"Life is simple. Everything happens for you, not to you.
Everything happens at exactly the right moment, neither too soon nor too late.
You don't have to like it... it's just easier if you do."
Byron Katie

"As long as you think that the cause of your problem is "out there"—
as long as you think that anyone or anything is responsible for your suffering—the situation is hopeless.
It means that you are forever in the role of victim, that you're suffering in paradise."
Byron Katie, Loving What Is: Four Questions That Can Change Your Life

"A thought is harmless unless we believe it.
It's not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering.
Attaching to a thought means believing that it's true, without inquiring.
A belief is a thought that we've been attaching to, often for years."
Byron Katie

"I am a lover of what is, not because I'm a spiritual person, but because it hurts when I argue with reality."
Byron Katie

"Don't believe every thing you think."
Byron Katie

"How do you react when you think you need people's love? Do you become a slave for their approval?
Do you live an inauthentic life because you can't bear the thought that they might disapprove of you?
Do you try to figure out how they would like you to be, and then try to become that, like a chameleon?
In fact, you never really get their love. You turn into someone you aren't, and then when they say "I love you," you can't believe it, because they're loving a facade.
They're loving someone who doesn't even exist, the person you're pretending to be. It's difficult to seek other people's love. It's deadly.
In seeking it, you lose what is genuine. This is the prison we create for ourselves as we seek what we already have."
Byron Katie

"Placing the blame or judgment on someone else leaves you powerless to change your experience;
taking responsibility for your beliefs and judgments gives you the power to change them"
Byron Katie

"Our parents, our children, our spouses, and our friends will continue to press every button we have,
until we realize what it is that we don't want to know about ourselves, yet. They will point us to our freedom every time."
Byron Katie

"When they attack you and you notice that you love them with all your heart, your Work is done."
Byron Katie

"If you put your hand into a fire, does anyone have to tell you to move it? Do you have to decide?
No: When your hand starts to burn, it moves. You don't have to direct it; the hand moves itself.
In the same way, once you understand, through inquiry, that an untrue thought causes suffering, you move away from it."
Byron Katie

"Nothing comes ahead of its time, and nothing ever happened that didn't need to happen."
Byron Katie

"all the advice you ever gave your partner is for you to hear"
Byron Katie

"Peace doesn't require two people; it requires only one. It has to be you. The problem begins and ends there."
Byron Katie

"Seeking love keeps you from the awareness that you already have it—that you are it."
Byron Katie

"The miracle of love comes to you in the presence of the uninterpreted moment.
If you are mentally somewhere else, you miss real life."
Byron Katie

"Don't be careful. You could hurt yourself."
Byron Katie

"When we stop opposing reality, action becomes simple, fluid, kind, and fearless."
Byron Katie

"You are your only hope, because we're not changing until you do.
Our job is to keep coming at you, as hard as we can, with everything that angers, upsets, or repulses you, until you understand.
We love you that much, whether we're aware of it or not. The whole world is about you."
Byron Katie

"You move totally away from reality when you believe that there is a legitimate reason to suffer"."
Byron Katie

"When you srgue with reality, you lose, but only 100% of the time."
Byron Katie

"Being present means living without control and always having your needs met."
Byron Katie

"An unquestioned mind is the world of suffering."
Byron Katie

"I love what I think, and I'm never tempted to believe it."
Byron Katie

"The journey is what brings us happiness not the destination."
Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives

"There are no ordinary moments."
Dan Millman

"There is no need to search; achievement leads to nowhere. It makes no difference at all, so just be happy now!
Love is the only reality of the world, because it is all One, you see. And the only laws are paradox, humor and change.
There is no problem, never was, and never will be. Release your struggle, let go of your mind, throw away your concerns, and relax into the world.
No need to resist life, just do your best. Open your eyes and see that you are far more than you imagine. You are the world, you are the universe;
you are yourself and everyone else, too! It's all the marvelous Play of God. Wake up, regain your humor. Don't worry, just be happy. You are already free!"
Dan Millman

"Life has three rules: Paradox, Humor, and Change.

- Paradox: Life is a mystery; don't waste your time trying to figure it out.

- Humor: Keep a sense of humor, especially about yourself. It is a strength beyond all measure

- Change: Know that nothing ever stays the same."
Dan Millman

"If you don't get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don't want, you suffer;
even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can't hold on to it forever."
Dan Millman

"A warrior does not give up what he loves, he finds the love in what he does"
Dan Millman

"Pain is a relatively objective, physical phenomenon; suffering is our psychological resistance to what happens.
Events may create physical pain, but they do not in themselves create suffering. Resistance creates suffering.
Stress happens when your mind resists what is... The only problem in your life is your mind's resistance to life as it unfolds. "
Dan Millman

"Everything you'll ever need to know is within you; the secrets of the universe are imprinted on the cells of your body."
Dan Millman

"everyone tells you what's good for you. they don't want you to find your own answers. they want you to believe theirs."
Dan Millman

"you can live a whole life time never being awake."
Dan Millman

"Where are you? Here
What time is it? Now
What are you? This moment."
Dan Millman

". . . Action always happens in the present, because it is an expression of the body, which can only exist in the here and now.
But the mind is like a phantom that lives only in the past or future. It's only power over you is to draw your attention our of the present."
Dan Millman

"There is no path to Happiness. Happiness is the path.
There is no path to Love. Love is the path.
There is no path to Peace. Peace is the path."
Dan Millman

"The first step to change,... is accepting your reality right now. Honoring your process.
Compassionate self-awareness leads to change; harsh self-criticism only holds the pattern in place, creating a stubborn and defensive Basic Self.
Be gentle with yourself as you would with a child. Be gentle but firm. Give yourself the space to grow.
But remember that the timing is in god's hands, not yours."
Dan Millman

"Wake up! If you knew for certain you had a terminal illness--if you had little time left to live--you would waste precious little of it!
Well, I'm telling you...you do have a terminal illness: It's called birth. You don't have more than a few years left. No one does!
So be happy now, without reason--or you will never be at all."
Dan Millman

"The time is now, the place is here. Stay in the present.
You can do nothing to change the past, and the future will never come exactly as you plan or hope for."
Dan Millman

"The secret of change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new."
Dan Millman

"I had lost my mind and fallen into my heart."
Dan Millman

"The seasons do not push one another; neither do clouds race the wind across the sky. All things happen in their own good time."
Dan Millman

"If babies held the same tendency toward self-criticism as adults, they might never learn to walk or talk.
Can you imagine infants stomping, 'Aarggh! Screwed up again!' Fortunately, babies are free of self-criticism.
They just keep practicing."
Dan Millman

"So be gentle with yourself; show yourself the same kindness and patience you might show a young child - the child you once were.
If you won't be your own friend, who will be? If, when playing an opponent, you are also opposing yourself, you will be outnumbered."
Dan Millman

"Unless someone truly has the power to say no, they never truly have the power to say yes"
Dan Millman

"But until a person can say deeply and honestly, "I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday," that person cannot say, "I choose otherwise."
Stephen R. Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change

"Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply."
Stephen R. Covey

"Treat a man as he is and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he can and should be and he will become as he can and should be."
Stephen R. Covey

"Start with the end in mind. "
Stephen R. Covey

"To change ourselves effectively, we first had to change our perceptions."
Stephen R. Covey

"We see the world, not as it is, but as we are──or, as we are conditioned to see it."
Stephen R. Covey

"Habit 1: Be Proactive
Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
Habit 3: Put First Things First
Habit 4: Think Win/Win
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
Habit 6: Synergize
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw"
Stephen Covey

"When the trust account is high, communication is easy, instant, and effective."
Stephen R. Covey

"Sow a thought, reap an action; sow an action, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character; sow a character, reap a destiny."
Stephen Covey

"Two people can see the same thing, disagree, and yet both be right. It's not logical; it's psychological."
Stephen R. Covey

"It's not what happens to us, but our response to what happens to us that hurts us."
Stephen R. Covey

"If I really want to improve my situation, I can work on the one thing over which I have control - myself."
Stephen Covey

"to learn and not to do is really not to learn. To know and not to do is really not to know."
Stephen R. Covey

"It is one thing to make a mistake, and quite another thing not to admit it.
People will forgive mistakes, because mistakes are usually of the mind, mistakes of judgment.
But people will not easily forgive the mistakes of the heart, the ill intention, the bad motives, the prideful justifying cover-up of the first mistake."
Stephen Covey

"Happiness, like unhappiness, is a proactive choice."
Stephen R. Covey

"Love is a verb. Love – the feeling – is the fruit of love the verb or our loving actions.
So love her. Sacrifice. Listen to her. Empathize. Appreciate. Affirm her."
Stephen R. Covey

"At some time in your life, you probably had someone believe in you when you didn't believe in yourself."
Stephen R. Covey

"The ability to subordinate an impulse to a value is the essence of the proactive person."
Stephen R. Covey

"Courage isn't absenct of fear, it is the awareness that something else is important"
Stephen R. Covey

"Ineffective people live day after day with unused potential."
Stephen R. Covey

"Our behavior is a function of our decisions, not our conditions."
Stephen R. Covey

"As you care less about what people think of you, you will care more about what others think of themselves."
Stephen R. Covey

"Admission of ignorance is often the first step in our education."
Stephen R. Covey

"There's no better way to inform and expand your mind on a regular basis than to get into the habit of reading good literature."
Stephen R. Covey

"How you treat the one reveals how you
regard the many, because everyone is ultimately a one."
Stephen R. Covey

"How different our lives are when we really know what is deeply important to us,
and keeping that picture in mind, we manage ourselves each day to be and to do what really matters most."
Stephen R. Covey

"People can't live with change if there's not a changeless core inside them."

"Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet."
Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life

"When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over.
He does not need punishment; he needs help. That's the message he is sending."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don't need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness.
If, in our heart, we still cling to anything - anger, anxiety, or possessions - we cannot be free."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle.
But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth.
Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize:
a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child—our own two eyes. All is a miracle."
Thich Nhat Hanh

No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you
understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change"
Thich Nhat Hanh

"Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor."
Thich Nhat Hahn

"Because you are alive, everything is possible."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me.
I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"Smile, breathe and go slowly."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"Many people think excitement is happiness....
But when you are excited you are not peaceful. True happiness is based on peace."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"Breathing in, I calm body and mind. Breathing out, I smile. Dwelling in the present moment I know this is the only moment."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear.
If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"My actions are my only true belongings."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves - slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"Our own life has to be our message."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"We are here to awaken from our illusion of separateness."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"Suffering is not enough. Life is both dreadful and wonderful...
How can I smile when I am filled with so much sorrow?
It is natural--you need to smile to your sorrow because you are more than your sorrow."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"I promise myself that I will enjoy every minute of the day that is given me to live."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"Man suffers only because he takes seriously what the gods made for fun."
Alan Wilson Watts

"The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple.
And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves."
Alan Wilson Watts

"This is the real secret of life -- to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now.
And instead of calling it work, realize it is play."
Alan Watts

"Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone."
Alan Watts

"To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don't grab hold of the water,
because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead, you relax, and float."
Alan Wilson Watts

"The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance."
Alan Wilson Watts

"You are an aperture through which the universe is looking at and exploring itself."
Alan Watts

"You are a function of what the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is a function of what the whole ocean is doing."
Alan Watts

"Through our eyes, the universe is perceiving itself. Through our ears, the universe is listening to its harmonies.
We are the witnesses through which the universe becomes conscious of its glory, of its magnificence."
Alan Wilson Watts

"The more a thing tends to be permanent, the more it tends to be lifeless."
Alan Watts

"Jesus Christ knew he was God. So wake up and find out eventually who you really are.
In our culture, of course, they'll say you're crazy and you're blasphemous, and they'll either put you in jail or in a nut house (which is pretty much the same thing).
However, if you wake up in India and tell your friends and relations, 'My goodness, I've just discovered that I'm God,' they'll laugh and say, 'Oh, congratulations, at last, you found out."
Alan Wilson Watts

"Problems that remain persistently insoluble should always be suspected as questions asked in the wrong way."
Alan Wilson Watts

"Things are as they are. Looking out into the universe at night,
we make no comparisons between right and wrong stars,
nor between well and badly arranged constellations."
Alan Watts

"When we attempt to exercise power or control over someone else,
we cannot avoid giving that person the very same power or control over us."
Alan Wilson Watts

"Let's suppose that you were able every night to dream any dream that you wanted to dream.
And that you could, for example, have the power within one night to dream 75 years of time. Or any length of time you wanted to have.
And you would, naturally as you began on this adventure of dreams, you would fulfill all your wishes. You would have every kind of pleasure you could conceive.
And after several nights of 75 years of total pleasure each, you would say "Well, that was pretty great." But now let's have a surprise. Let's have a dream which isn't under control.
Where something is gonna happen to me that I don't know what it's going to be. And you would dig that and come out of that and say "Wow, that was a close shave, wasn't it?"
And then you would get more and more adventurous, and you would make further and further out gambles as to what you would dream.
And finally, you would dream ... where you are now. You would dream the dream of living the life that you are actually living today."
Alan Watts

Paulo Coelho,

"I don't live in either my past or my future. I'm interested only in the present.

Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we're living now."

"The past has no power over the present moment."
Eckhart Tolle

"Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge."
Eckhart Tolle

"The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but thought about it.
Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking. Separate them from the situation, which is always neutral. It is as it is."
Eckhart Tolle

"Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance."
Eckhart Tolle

"Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness.
How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment."
Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth

"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

"Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life."
Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

"Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on."
Eckhart Tolle

"To love is to recognize yourself in another."
Eckhart Tolle

"Time isn't precious at all, because it is an illusion.
What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed.
The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is."
Eckhart Tolle

"Life isn't as serious as the mind makes it out to be."
Eckhart Tolle

"I have lived with several Zen masters -- all of them cats."
Eckhart Tolle

"Life is the dancer and you are the dance."
Eckhart Tolle

"Anything that you resent and strongly react to in another is also in you."
Eckhart Tolle

"Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it."
Eckhart Tolle

"Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time.
If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it's no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you learn nothing."
Eckhart Tolle

"You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level."
Eckhart Tolle

"Whatever you fight, you strengthen, and what you resist, persists."
Eckhart Tolle

"Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to "die before you die" --- and find that there is no death."
Eckhart Tolle

"Worry pretends to be necessary but serves no useful purpose"
Eckhart Tolle

"It is not uncommon for people to spend their whole life waiting to start living."
Eckhart Tolle

"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

"If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place. Primary reality is within; secondary reality without."
Eckhart Tolle

"This, too, will pass."
Eckhart Tolle

"What a liberation to realize that the "voice in my head" is not who I am.
Who am I then? The one who sees that."
Eckhart Tolle

"Only the truth of who you are, if realized, will set you free."
Eckhart Tolle

"Being must be felt. It can't be thought."
Eckhart Tolle

"All the things that truly matter, beauty, love, creativity, joy and inner peace arise from beyond the mind."

Accident

"You are a three-part being - body, mind and spirit - and you never, ever are anything less or anything else.
As you move from the metaphysical to the physical and back again, you simply disintegrate and reintegrate these aspects of Who You Are.
To help you understand how such a thing is possible, think of what you call "white light".
This is actually a combination of lights of different wave-lenghts in the electromagnetic spectrum.
If you send white light through a dispersive prism, you will see its spectral colors, which are its constituent parts.
Now think of physicality as the "prism" of Ultimate Reality. When the soul passes through the prism into physicality, it breaks into its constituent parts: body, mind and spirit.
When it passes back through the prism the other way - or as humans put it, when you "pass away" - the soul becomes one element again.
That one element is You."

Neale Donald Walsch, Conversations with God, Book 4: Awaken the Species

Oh cool, please share them, would love to get see more of your writing! 🙏

"Do not waste the precious moments of this, your present reality, seeking to unveil all of life's secrets.
Those secrets are a secret for a reason. Grant your God the benefit of the doubt.
Use your NOW moment for the Highest Purpose- the creation and the expression of WHO YOU REALLY ARE.
Decide who you are- who you want to be-and then do everything in your power to be that.

It is not nearly so important how well a message is received as how well it is sent.
You cannot take responsibility for how well another accepts your truth; you can only ensure how well it is communicated.
And by how well, I don't mean merely how clearly; I mean how lovingly, how compassionately, how sensitively, how courageously, and how completely.

If you think your life is about DOINGNESS, you do not understand what you are about.
Your soul doesn't care what you do for a living-and when your life is over, neither will you.
Your soul cares only about what you're BEING while you're doing whatever you're doing.
It is a state of BEINGNESS the soul is after, not a state of doingness."
Neale Donald Walsch

"Your light is seen, your heart is known, your soul is cherished by more people than you might imagine.
If you knew how many others have been touched in wonderful ways by you, you would be astonished.
If you knew how many people feel so much for you, you would be shocked. You are far more wonderful than you think you are.
Rest with that. Rest easy with that. Breathe again. You are doing fine. More than fine. Better than fine. You're doin' great. So relax. And love yourself today."
Neale Donald Walsch

"glorify who you are today, do not condemn who you were yesterday and dream of who you can be tomorrow..."

"You will one day experience joy that matches this pain. You will cry euphoric tears at the Beach Boys, you will stare down at a baby's face as she lies asleep in your lap, you will make great friends, you will eat delicious foods you haven't tried yet, you will be able to look at a view from a high place and not assess the likelihood of dying from falling. There are books you haven't read yet that will enrich you, films you will watch while eating extra-large buckets of popcorn, and you will dance and laugh and have sex and go for runs by the river and have late-night conversations and laugh until it hurts. Life is waiting for you. You might be stuck here for a while, but the world isn't going anywhere. Hang on in there if you can. Life is always worth it." 🎴

"Once the storm is over you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain.

— Matt Haig, Reasons to Stay Alive
