The mystical trend of our time, which shows itself particularly in the rampant growth of the so-called Theosophy and Spiritualism, is for me no more than a symptom of weakness and confusion. Since our inner experiences consist of reproductions, and comb inations of sensory impressions, the concept of a soul without a body seem to me to be empty and devoid of meaning.
Albert Einstein quotes
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness,that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, Talented, fabulous? Actually,who are you NOT to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlighteneng about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest, on earth,the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us. It is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciosly give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates other
Marianne Williamson quotes
If I Had My Life To Live Over: I’d dare to make more mistakes next time. I’d relax, I would limber up. I would be sillier than I have been this trip. I would take fewer things seriously. I would take more chances. I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers. I would eat more ice cream and less beans. I would perhaps have more actual troubles, but I’d have fewer imaginary ones. You see, I’m one of those people who lives sensibly and sanely, hour after hour, day after day. Oh, I’ve had my mo0ments, and if I had it to do over again, I’d have more of them. In fact, I’d try to have nothing else, just moments, one after another, instead of living so many years ahead of each day. I’ve been one of those persons who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, a raincoat, and a parachute. If I had to do it again, I would travel lighter than I have. If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I would pick more daisies.
It's amazing the things you notice. Like the corner of his collar that was coming undone, like he was from a poor family and couldn't afford new shirts. That's all I could see. The whole world was that unraveled piece of fabric. It's such a lie that you should do what's in your heart. If we all did what was in our hearts, the world would come to a halt.
Weeping willow with your tears running down, why do you always weep and frown? Is it because he left you one day? Is it because he could not stay? On your branches he would swing. Do you long for the happiness that day would bring? He found shelter in your shade. You thought his laughter would never fade. Weeping Willow, stop your tears, for there is something to calm your fears. You think death has ripped you forever apart, but I know he'll always be in your heart.
Huge events take place on this earth every day: earthquakes, hurricanes, even glaciers move. So why couldn't he look at me?
At different states in our lives, the signs of love may vary: dependence, attraction, contentment, worry, loyalty, grief, but at the heart, the source is always the same. Human beings have the rare capacity to connect with each other, against all odds.
I am old enough to know that victory is often a thing deferred, and rarely at the summit of courage... What is at the summit of courage, I think, is freedom. The freedom that comes with the knowledge that no earthly think can break you.
The heart has reasons that reason cannot know.
Blaise Pascal quotes
Did you ever notice how the lonely one, is always standing in the sun? It is because, inside his mind, he is leaving the group behind. He closes his eyes, and he escapes, to any somewhere, his favorite place. The sun's warmth becomes, the scent of a pine tree, or its brightness like, the depths of the sea. He might go to the ocean, or to the woods. He'd stay there forever, if he only could. When he goes there, he's reminded that he's, part of a world bigger than one man ever sees. It's in this place, independence he knows. Does he need the group? Absolutely no! And when he returns, still smelling salt-air or pine, the group wonders where, he had gone all this time. They don't understand, why he smiles so wide. They want to; he knows, they could if they tried. It's then that they realize, that he is not the lonely one, and then when they all come, to stand in the sun
