Thoughts

 

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves: “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?”. Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

love like you’ll never be hurt,

sing like no one is listening,

and live like it’s heaven on earth.

“Come to the edge.”

“We can’t. We’re afraid.”

“Come to the edge.”

“We can’t. We will fall!”

“Come to the edge.”

And they came.

And he pushed them.

And they flew.

Guillaume Apollinaire

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

You need to go for the inner joy, the inner peace, the inner vision first, and then all of the outer things appear. Set your thoughts and frequency on happiness. Radiate the feelings of happiness and joy within you, and transmit that into the universe with all of your might, and you’ll experience true heaven on earth. Life is meant to be abundant – in all areas.

A passage from “The secret”, by Rhonda Byrne

You are not here by accident or by some coincidence of nature. You are a spiritual being learning lessons of love in this earth school.

Brian L. Weiss

The older I get, the less I care about what people think of me. Therefore the older I get, the more I enjoy life.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

We do not exist independently from others, so our wellbeing cannot arise independently of others either. To flourish individually, we must consider the wellbeing of those around us.

B. A. Wallace

………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Everything begins with the resolve to take the first step. From that action, wisdom arises and change begins. Without action, nothing changes.

Daisaku Ikeda

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.

Viktor Frankl

………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma -which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They already know what you truly want to become. All the rest is secondary.

Steve Jobs

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

Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.

John Lennon

You’ve been provided with a perfect body to house your soul for a few brief moments in eternity. So regardless of its size, shape, color, or any imagined infirmities, you can honor the temple that houses you by eating healthfully, exercising, listening to your body’s needs and treating it with dignity and love.

Wayne W. Dyer
