Perfection is a relationship and not a set of rules by which to justify punishing ourselves, or others.

Guy Finley

  

We who lived in the concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread.    

They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken away from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s way. 

Dr. Victor Frankel, a holocaust survivor, in Man’s Search For Meaning

  

  

The art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging

to a particular mood of happiness,

but in allowing happiness to change its form

without being disappointed by the change;

for happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up. 

Charles Langbridge Morgan (1894-1958), English-Welsh Playwright, Novelist

One thing to remember is to talk to the animals. If you do, they will talk back to you. But if you don't talk to the animals, they won't talk back to you, then you won't understand, and when you don't understand you will fear and when you fear you will destroy the animals, and if you destroy the animals, you will destroy yourself.

We see quite clearly that what happens to the nonhuman happens to the human. What happens to the outer world happens to the inner world.If the outer world is diminished in its grandeur then the emotional, imaginative, intellectual, and spiritual life of the human is diminished or extinguished.Without the soaring birds, the great forests, the sounds and coloration of the insects, the free-flowing streams, the flowering fields, the sight of the clouds by day and the stars at night, we become impoverished in all that makes us human.

Thomas Berry (1914- ), Priest, Cultural Historian, Earth Scholar  

  

God is not a singular Super Being, but the extraordinary process called Life. No path to God is more direct than any other path.

Bless those who challenge us to grow, to stretch, to move beyond the knowable, to come back home to our elemental and essential nature. Bless those who challenge us for they remind us of doors we have closed and doors we have yet to open.  

Navajo Saying   

  

To think is not your real nature. Your real nature is to be.The natural free state is the ultimate goal. That is to be without thinking.The essence of your self is only awareness and consciousness. When the ego dominates it, your consciousness functions as the reasoning, thinking or sensing faculty. When you are totally released, you identify with your beingness only. You are intuitive with no thinking.

Buddha, The Enlightened One  

  

How to Have Fun Even When You’re Not Having Fun: Next time you’re not having fun – and not having fun not having fun – remind yourself that life is a comedy of situations and you’re just having an episode.

Even if you can’t recall a moment of fool-realization or haven’t committed a memorable random act of comedy doesn’t mean you aren’t qualified... to get your absurdification as a bona fide fool from the Swami... we’ll send you an attractive certificate -- including Swami’s Seal of Approval -- suitable for framing. 

You are pre-qualified. Anybody who would pay money for this certificate is already foolish. So you’ve earned it, you deserve it, so act now! Remember, any money spent on foolishness can’t be spent on anything serious, and as you already know seriousness is one of the major causes of truth decay on the planet.

...To know that we respect each other 

not for what we have become, 

but for becoming what we always were.

To wear our souls rather than to bury them in a mantle of misery

To know kindred spirits rather than to hope for them

To feel the presence of something greater than ourselves 

rather than to pray for it...

Sara Becker

If you push a rose to bloom you destroy its beauty. So is it true when it comes to the flowering of all things in our life, including people, plans, and personal objectives, no matter how noble.

When we will be present to ourselves, quietly watchful of the relationship that is always unfolding in the Presence moment, then we have no more need to prepare for what life will bring to us than a newly opened rose needs ready itself for the warmth of the sun that comes to release its fragrance.

Looking to any person, place, possession, or power to answer our longing to be whole and free . . . is like searching the back of our bedroom closet in the hope of finding the entrance to King Solomon's mine.

Good word is silver, silence is gold.

Your tongue is your horse.
