Don’t dwell on those who let you down; cherish those who hold you up.
The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.
— Mitch Albom
Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.
— Khalil Gibran
What if religion was each other?
If our practice was our life?
If prayer was our words?
What if the temple was the Earth?
If forests were our church?
If holy water – the rivers, lakes, and oceans?
What if meditation was our relationships?
If the Teacher was life?
If wisdom was self-knowledge?
If love was the center of our being.
— Ganga White
I AM: two of the most powerful of words; for what you put after them shapes your reality. We tend to believe what we are repeatedly told. What you say about yourself impacts not only who you are, but who you can become. Be kind, be aspirational, be tough when needed. I AM: Fit. Focused. Fearless.
We must learn to be still in the midst of activity and to be vibrantly alive in repose.
— Indira Gandhi
People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.
— Dalai Lama
As we look deeply within, we understand our perfect balance. There is no fear of the cycle of birth, life and death. For when you stand in the present moment, you are timeless.
— Rodney Yee
I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be honorable, to be compassionate. It is, after all, to matter: to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all.
