Imagination

All the breaks you need in life wait within your imagination.

Untitled


I was shown how fragile life was on Saturday. I saw the terror on bystanders’ faces. I saw the victims of a senseless crime. I saw lives change. I was reminded that we don’t know when or where our time on Earth will end. When or where we will breathe our last breath. For one man, it was in the middle of a busy food court on a Saturday evening.

I say all the time that every moment we have to live our life is a blessing. So often I have found myself taking it for granted. Every hug from a family member. Every laugh we share with friends. Even the times of solitude are all blessings. Every second of every day is a gift. After Saturday evening, I know I truly understand how blessed I am for each second I am given.

Everything In Our Power




Who has seen the wind?
 Neither I nor you.
 But when the leaves hang trembling, 
 The wind is passing through. 
 Who has seen the wind? 
 Neither you nor I. 
 But when the trees bow down their heads, 
 The wind is passing by. 

~ Christina Georgina Rossetti

Let's Think About Where We're Going

We often get accused with the idea that this sort of system we advocate would end in violence, and that's only true in the following way: the current system will happily use violence against anybody proposing a non-violent system.

Trust The Flow



Open to life's bounty.

Embrace unconventional knowledge and truth.

Help someone have a positive experience.

Be a cool friend.

Respond to opportunities in the here and now.

Release trying to evoke things in others that aren't there.

Observe yourself in action without judging.

Don't let a fear of disapproval keep you from sharing your true opinions and feelings.

Release your scripts for other people.

Be yourself without fear.

Our Power Is Shared

Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Willing is not enough; we must do.

~ Goethe

Our Fate

I think we are bound to, and by, nature. We may want to deny this connection and try to believe we control the external world, but every time there's a snowstorm or drought, we know our fate is tied to the world around us.


~ Alice Hoffman

The Soul

The Soul selects her own Society
Then -- Shuts the Door
To her divine Majority
Present no more

Unmoved -- she notes the Chariots -- pausing
At her low Gate
Unmoved -- an Emperor be kneeling
Upon her Mat

I've known her -- from an ample nation
Choose One
Then -- close the Valves of her attention
Like Stone


~ Emily Dickinson

Hands

Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.

~ Mother Teresa

The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.

~ Vince Lombardi

Of life's two chief prizes, beauty and truth, I found the first in a loving heart and the second in a laborer's hand.

~ Khalil Gibran

As the eagle was killed by the arrow winged with his own feather, so the hand of the world is wounded by its own skill.

~ Helen Keller

Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.

~ Leonardo da Vinci

Faith has to do with things that are not seen and hope with things that are not at hand.

~ Thomas Aquinas

The final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.

~ Anne Frank

Progress

Progress lies not in enhancing what is, 
but in advancing toward what will be.

~ Kahlil Gibran

Shape Shift

We are given a chance to make choices every day that shape our character. We can let circumstances overwhelm us or we can use our will to stand up for what we believe in and so shape our life to our own specifications. We really don't need others to tell us who we are if we take hold of ourselves and shape ourselves into the people we want to be.

Right Yourself

All experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.


~ Thomas Jefferson, The Declaration of Independence

The Mystery of Life

We must each find our own answers and make our own meaning.
