"If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track, which has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living."

"It is important to live as if we are always on the eve of a great discovery and prepare to welcome it as completely, intimately, and ardently as we can.

How should we be able to forget those ancient myths that are at the beginning of all peoples, the myths about dragons that at the last moment turn into princesses; perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave. Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us.

So you must not be frightened, if a sadness rises up before you larger than any you have ever seen; if a restiveness, like light and cloud-shadows, passes your hands and over all you do. You must think that something is happening with you, that life has not forgotten you, that it holds you in its hand; it will not let you fall...

Mmmm, this might turn long...Be forewarned. =] I'll start with my favorite author for this post and who knows where future ones shall lead me... You gotta love Coelho. =]


  “When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”

“Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.” 

**

"Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worse kind of suffering.” 

**

“You have to take risks. We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen.” 

** 

“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

** 

“We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It's one thing to feel that you are 
on the right path, but it's another to think that yours is the only path.”

**

"The wise are wise only because they love. The fool are fools only because they think they can understand love.”

**

The wise are wise only because they love. The fool are fools only because they think they can understand love.”

**

“But there is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it's better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you're fighting for.”

**

      “The Soul of the World is nourished by people's happiness. And also by unhappiness, envy, and jealousy. To realize one's Personal Legend is a person's only real obligation. All things are one. And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

"There are three indications of real generosity:
to remain steadfast without resisting,
to praise without the emotion of generosity,
and to give before being asked."

"He did each single thing as if he did nothing else."

~ Charles Dickens


Or, to put another way, from Don Miguel Ruiz's The Four Agreements:

"Under any circumstance, always do your best, no more and no less. But keep in mind that your best is never going to be the same from one moment to the next."

"Out of clutter, find Simplicity.
From dischord, find Harmony.

"Darkness is the fosterer of splendour."

~ Druid Saying, source unknown



The void brings forth dazzling light. In the deepest black bottom of an ocean trench, there exist animals that one might expect to have come out of some exotic fantasy. The night sky is lit by moon and stars. Soil, deep and dark, gives rise to growing things and supports the cycle of life, nurturing seeds in its moist, rich blanket. Under the mountains, in caves where no living thing can see, veins of metal, crystals and precious gem stones wait. The womb in its darkness holds the key to housing and protecting life during its most vulnerable stages. Out of the darkness of death we are born to a new existence. The blackest hour occurs just before the brilliant approach of the dawn. And so, when things seem to be at their worst - this is where the turning point lies. There is no opposition in truth, for Darkness nourishes Light. Without it, nothing beautiful can be born.

"For years I ran away,
Until I realized one day.
That it was my own soul,
Bearing down on me.
Like the hot breath of Spring."

If there is light in the soul, there is love in the person.
If there is love in the person, there is peace in the home.
If there is peace in the home, there is unity in the nation.
If there is unity in the nation, there is healing in the world.
