All By Myself

It could happen any time,
tornado, earthquake, Armageddon.
It could happen.
Or sunshine, love, salvation.
It could, you know.
That’s why we wake and look out~
No guarantees in this life.
But some bonuses,
like morning,
like right now,
like noon,
like evening.

~ William Stafford

Pay attention to that unchanging part 
of yourself. It is perfect.
At the source of life, and only there, 
one finds peace, harmony,
and the undisturbed contentment of bliss.

~ Deepak Chopra

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.

Oscar Wilde

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 
the soul:
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.

~ Swami Chetananda

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

~ Gordon W. Allp

If you want to love, take the time to listen
 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 
Principle of Life.

~ H.B. Jeffre

The privilege of a lifetime is to be yourself.

~ Joseph Campbell

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

~ M. Scott Peck

Enter each day with the expectation that 
the happenings of the day may contain 
a clandestine message
 addressed to you personally. 
Expect omens, epiphanies, casual blessings 
 and teachers who unknowingly speak to your

~ Sam Keen, Hymns to an Unknown God

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

~ Pat Boone, 1958

The greatest discoveries will be along
 spiritual lines. This is the field where
 miracles are going to happen.
Spiritual power is the greatest underdeveloped
 power  and has the greatest future.

~ Thomas Alva Edison

To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.

~ Bertrand Russell

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” 
with knowledge,
but no one seems to care about filling
the human “heart” with compassion.
This is what the real role of religion is.

~ HH The Dalai Lama

Trust thyself: 
every heart vibrates to that iron string.
Accept the place the divine providence has
 found for you.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The opposite of love is not hate, 
it’s indifference…

~ Elie Wiesel

Serenity isn't freedom from the storm,
but peace within the storm.

~ spiritual maxim

The day you were born,
a ladder was set up
to help you escape from this world.

~ Rumi


Keep a candle  burning,
