“Come out of the circle of time and into the circle of Love.”
“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
“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
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.
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.
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
