Our true self

“Each of us is here to discover our true Self… that essentially we are spiritual beings who have taken manifestation in physical form… that we’re not human beings that have occasional spiritual experiences… that we’re spiritual beings that have occasional human experiences.”

– Deepak Chopra

True friends

I looked for my soul, but my soul I could not see.
I looked for my God, but my God eluded me.
I looked for a friend and then I found all three.

— William Blake 

Trust

“We’re never so vulnerable than when we trust someone – but paradoxically, if we cannot trust, neither can we find love or joy”

― Walter Anderson 

Final Analysis

“People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered: Forgive them anyway. 

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives: Be kind anyway.

If you are successful you will win some false friends and true enemies: Succeed anyway. 

If you are honest and frank, people will try to cheat you: Be honest anyway. 

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight: Build anyway. 

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous of you: Be happy anyway. 

The good you do today, will often be forgotten by tomorrow: Do good anyway. 

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough: Give your best anyway. 

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.” 

— Mother Teresa

Create your reality

“Most people believe the mind to be a mirror, more or less accurately reflecting the world outside them, not realizing on the contrary that the mind is itself the principal element of creation.” 

― Rabindranath Tagore

Find your center

“Since you alone are responsible for your thoughts, only you can change them. You will want to change them when you realize that each thought creates according to its own nature. Remember that the law works at all times and that you are always demonstrating according to the kind of thoughts you habitually entertain. Therefore, start now to think only those thoughts that will bring you health and happiness. “

— Paramahansa Yogananda

Miracle of Life

This miracle of life had not taken her first flight yet, she had just emerged out of the cocoon just a few hours ago. She explored the world with new eyes stretching her wings over and over guided by instinct until she stood at the edge and took a leap of faith. With her wings spread wide open she flew away gracefully ready to fulfill her destiny. 

Life evolves naturally without effort but we often hold on to old preconceived ideas and fears that limit our true potential and negate us from experiencing life completely. 

Stretch your mind with new ideas, grow out of your comfort zone and emerge out of the cocoon that binds you. Open your wings and take a leap of faith into the unknown. Never forget that Love is our true essence and the guiding light that will shine upon your path eternally. Fill your heart with wonder and explore the endless possibility of your Dreams. 

Show your beautiful colors to the world because you are unique, you are beautiful. You are a miracle of life. 

William Michael

Gratitude

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.”

― Melody Beattie

Awaken

“The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.”

— William James

To the crazy ones

Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.

 

Create your Destiny

“Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.”

– Mahatma Gandhi

Surrender

The word “surrender” is often interpreted as giving up, as weakness, as admitting defeat. Although this is one way to use the word, we will use it in a different way. Surrendering means letting go of your resistance to the total openness of who you are. It means giving up the tension of the little vortex you believe yourself to be and realizing the deep power of the ocean you truly are. It means to open with no boundaries, emotional or physical, so you ease wide beyond any limiting sense of self you might have.

– David Deida

Inner Peace

“Inner peace is impossible without patience. Wisdom requires patience. Spiritual growth implies the mastery of patience. Patience allows the unfolding of destiny to proceed at its own unhurried pace. “
— Brian Weiss

Prayer

 

“Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths, or the turning inwards in prayer for five short minutes.”

~ Etty Hillesum

Radiate Stillness

“Learning how to be still, to really be still and let life happen – that stillness becomes a radiance.”

— Morgan Freeman

The Dream

“The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach.”

― Carl Jung
