May the long time sun shine upon you |
All love surround you |
And the pure light within you |
Guide your way on.
Mike Heron, The Incredible String Band
The sun shines not (only) on us but in us.
Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
Drop the belief that knowledge is what makes you adequate to a situation. We don’t need to know anything; we need to be Here. Life knows everything.
If we divide into two camps--even into violent and the nonviolent--and stand in one camp while attacking the other, the world will never have peace. We will always blame and condemn those we feel are responsible for wars and social injustice, without recognizing the degree of violence within ourselves. We must work on ourselves and also with those we condemn if we want to have a real impact.
We'd all like to have someone who thinks we're wonderful, encourages us, and loves us unconditionally. We can be with that person all the time because we have that person inside us.
Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.
For peace of mind, we need to resign as general manager of the universe.
Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone.
Through the lens of conditioned mind, we cannot see that Life is a force of attraction, love, and resonance. Instead of resisting what causes us to suffer, Life invites us to practice being in love with what we seek.
Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength.
Saint Francis de Sales
Love's gift cannot be given, it waits to be accepted.
For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.
Martin Luther King Jr
