The essence of our being is love.
Health is inner peace. Healing is letting go of fear.
Giving and receiving are the same
We can let go of the past and the future.
Now is the only time there is and each instant is for giving.
We can learn to love ourselves and others by forgiving rather than judging.
We can become love finders rather than fault finders.
We can choose and direct ourselves to be peaceful inside
regardless of what is happening outside.
We are students and teachers to each other.
We can focus on the whole of life rather than the fragments.
Since love is eternal, death need not be viewed as fearful.
We can always perceive others as either extending love or giving a call for help.
– Gerald Jampolsky, Founder of Attitudinal Healing, Tiburon, California
You can only perceive the beauty that lives outside you.
When you feel the beauty that lives inside you.
– Don Miguel Ruiz
Stillness and who you are at the depth of your being are inseparable.
– Eckhart Tolle
From the calm place at my spiritual center,
I have touched the wisdom of the earth in winter.
Regeneration streams from the holy earth to me and I am full.
I now gather to me the lessons which empower me to channel
this life giving earth force for the good of all beings.
Wherein lies the source of Joy?
The inner peace of winter prepares me for the answer.
It shouts quietly to me, do not seek happiness;
Seek rather your true reason for being.
Happiness is the child of completeness of living your dharma. Seek your dharma.
At this time of new small beginnings, I feel the clarity of vision growing in me
And I am pregnant with joy.

Meaning of Tantra (to weave, web) / All is One and Interconnected
The human body at peace with itself is more precious than the rarest gem. Cherish your body, it is yours this one lifetime only.
The human form is won with difficulty, it is easy to lose.
All worldly things are brief, like lightning in the sky.
This life you must know as the tiny splash of a raindrop;
a thing of beauty that disappears even as it comes into being.
Therefore set your goal,
Make use of every day and night to achieve it.
– Tsong Khapa, Buddhist Philosopher (1357-1419)
You are life passing through your body,
Passing through your mind,
Passing through your soul.
You are the force that moves the wind and breathes through your body.
The whole universe is a living being that is moved by that force,
And that is what you are.
You are life.
– Don Miguel Ruiz
If I had a prayer, it would be this:
God, spare me from the desire for love, approval, or appreciation.
– Byron Katie
We put thirty spokes together and call it a wheel;
But it is on the space where there is nothing that the usefulness of the wheel depends.
We turn clay to make a vessel,
But it is on the space where there is nothing that the usefulness of the vessel depends.
We pierce doors and windows to make a house;
And it is on these spaces where there is nothing that the usefulness of the house depends.
Therefore just as we take advantage of what is,
We should recognize the usefulness of what is not.
– Lao Tzu, On Nothing
We are the mirror as well as the face of it.
We are tasting the taste this minute of eternity.
We are pain and what cures pain, both.
We are the sweet cold water and the jar that pours.
Pleasure is a release from the tyranny of consciousness thought.
