Keep love in your heart
a life without it is like a sunless garden
when the flowers are dead.
The conciousness of loving and being loved
brings a warmth and richness to life
that nothing else can bring.
If you have a wounded heart,
touch it as little as you would an injured eye.
There are only two remedies for the suffering of
Hope & Patience.
If we truly want to have a more extraordinary life,
then we must find a more extraordinary place
within ourselves to live from.
The choice is ours and it is up to us to make it happen.

…it is here that we encounter the central theme of
to live is to suffer, to survive is to find meaning
in the suffering.
If there is a purpose in life at all, there must
be a purpose in suffering

and must accept the
responsibility that his answer prescribes.
If he succeeds he will continue to grow in
spite of all indignities…
“He who has a why to live can
bear with any how.”

to your heart.
In most ancient and wise cultures it is a regular
practice for people to talk to their heart.
There are rituals, stories, and meditative skills
in every spiritual tradition that awaken the voice
of the heart.
To live wisely, this practice is essential,
because our heart is the source of our connection
to an intimacy with all of life.
And life is love.
This mysterious quality of love is all around us,
as real as gravity…
Yet how often we forget about love….
~ Jack Kornfield
When we acquaint ourselves with the Divine,
we discover that the nature of God is Love,
and we see that Love is the creative

If your goal is to avoid pain and escape suffering,
I would not advise you to seek higher levels
of consciousness or spiritual evolution.

your whole sense of identity,
belonging and purpose
may never become clear unless you start
with your spiritual growth.

The greatest discoveries will be along

Everything is laid out for you.
Your path is straight ahead of you.
Sometimes it’s invisible, but it’s there.
You may not know where it’s going
But you have to follow that path.
It’s the path to the creator.
It’s the only path there is.
~ Chief Leon Shenandoah
Each of us in our own way can try
to spread compassion into people’s hearts.
Western civilizations these days place
great importance on filling the human “brain”
but no one seems to care about filling
the human “heart” with compassion.
This is what the real role of religion is.
