Happiness is our birthright. It is our personal ”Heaven on earth". It is created within the SPIRIT and then can manifest in mind, body and soul, like a breath, a smile and a tear. We all make life what it is through reaction to our feelings - either positive or negative.
Courtesy is simply doing unto others what you would like them to do unto you.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in every one. And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
Nelson Mandela, 1994 Inaugural Speech
Pain is temporary, pride is forever.
There are many ways to measure success; not the least of which is the
way your child describes you when talking to a friend.
In Wonderment And Humility
As a sensitive to be blessed to be able to cross realities and communicate with other
realities of being may be beyond explanation to some.
To look into the sky in awe and wonderment and think as yet many see all this
and more and still ask if there is a God.
I feel deeply humbled to know that all I experience deep down in my soul
in the reality of God is as real as falling in love.
How do we explain that? How do we explain to eyes that cannot see and
help them realize that a belief in God is no different than feelings of love
for a dear lost departed loved one?
A friend hears the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails.
What can be added to the happiness of a man who is in good health, out of debt,
and has a clear conscience?
Adam Smith (1723-1790)
The Circle has healing power. In the Circle we are all equal. When in the Circle, no one is in front of you. No one is behind you. No one is above you. No one is below you. The Sacred Circle is designed to create unity. The Hoop of Life is also a circle. On this hoop there is a place for every species, every race, every tree, and every plant. It is this completeness of Life that must be respected in order to bring about health on this planet. To understand each other, as the ripples when a stone is tossed in the waters, the Circle starts small and grows...until it fills the whole lake.
Dave Chief, Oglala Lakota, Grandson of Red Dog/Crazy Horse's band
He who has health has hope; and he who has hope, has everything.
Man has never made any material as resilient as the human spirit.
Bernard Williams (1929-) English Philosopher
Many have tried desperately to know God, looking in all the corners of existence, forgetting the simple truth that they need not seek in a faraway place. All they need do is look within in truth and love, for we “Are” and represent what we term the creative force, moving constantly like the ripples of a circle,
Remember that if the opportunities for great deeds should never come,
the opportunities for good deeds are renewed day by day.
The thing for us to long for is the goodness, not the glory.
Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many--
not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
Charles Dickens 1812-1870
If you press me to say why I loved him, I can say no more than because he was he,
and I was I.
Michel de Montaigne
It is better by noble boldness to run the risk of being subject to half the evils
we anticipate than to remain in cowardly listlessness for fear of what might happen.
Herodotus 485 – 425 BC
Let us move on, and step out boldly, though it be into the night,
and we can scarcely see the way.
Charles B. Newcomb
The only service a friend can really render is to keep up your courage by
holding up to you a mirror in which you can see a noble image of yourself.
George Bernard Shaw 1856-1950
To be capable of steady friendship or lasting love, are the two greatest proofs,
not only of goodness of heart, but of strength of mind.
William Hazlitt 1778-1830
The world is moved not only by the mighty shoves of the heroes,
but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.
Helen Keller 1880-1968
When someone does something good, applaud! You will make two people happy.
The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.
The Echo Of Eternity
Let the white rose of purity blossom within the hearts of humankind, so that the spiritual truth of Universal Love shall shine endlessly, within the echo of eternity.
Courage to start and willingness to keep everlasting at it are the requisites for success.
Alonzo Newton Benn
The self is not something that one finds. It is something that one creates.
Thomas Szasz 1920
I love the man that can smile in trouble that can gather strength from distress,
and grow brave by reflection
Thomas Paine 1737-1809
When we tire of well-worn ways, we seek for new. This restless craving in the souls of men
spurs them to climb, and to seek the mountain view.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
You see things; and you say, "Why?" But I dream things that never were; and I say "Why not?"
George Bernard Shaw 1856-1950
Failure is only postponed success as long as courage "coaches" ambition.
The habit of persistence is the habit of victory.
The Rainbow Bridge
There is an Angelic Rainbow that glows celestial rays. That golden smile that wings its way everywhere it goes. A love that shines Divine Eternity with every moment.
There is a Spiritual Essence deep down within. A Sacred heart that blesses all her kin
…The Rainbow Bridge.
