Better keep yourself clean and bright; you are the window through which you must see the world.
~George Bernard Shaw
Live in such a way that you would not be ashamed to sell your parrot to the town gossip.
What I want in my life is compassion, a flow between myself and others based on a mutual giving from the heart.
~Marshall B. Rosenberg
The more faithfully you listen to the voice within you, the better you will hear what is happening outside.
I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is
Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important.
It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all
caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single
garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all
indirectly. We are made to live together because of the interrelated
structure of reality.
~Martin Luther King
If you know whilst dreamimg
What matter if the shadows
Of demons cross your wall
If your boat is sinking in the sea
A tiger appears in the undergrowth
You know itís but a dream
If you know you are the Self
What matter if the body becomes ill
Your shares are in freefall
Your love takesflight
You rest untouched
Forever in the Self
I never feel more given to
Than when you take from me Ė
When you understand the joy I feel giving to you.
And you know my giving isnít done to put you in my debt,
But because I want to live the love
I feel for you
To receive with grace
May be the greatest giving.
Thereís no way I can separate the two.
When you give to me,
I give you my receiving.
When you take from me,
I feel so given to.
