Do not

Do not abandon trust when your ego thinks things should be different than they are.

~Wayne Dyer

The only

The only real security in life lies in relishing life's insecurity.

It's important

It's important to be heroic, ambitious, productive, efficient, creative, and progressive, but these qualities don't necessarily nurture soul. The soul has different concerns, of equal value: downtime for reflection, conversation, and reverie; beauty that is captivating and pleasuring; relatedness to the environs and to people; and any animal’s rhythm of rest and activity.

~Thomas Moore

If you're having difficulty

If you're having difficulty coming up with new ideas, then slow down. For me, slowing down has been a tremendous source of creativity. It has allowed me to open up -- to know that there's life under the earth and that I have to let it come through me in a new way. Creativity exists in the present moment. You can't find it anywhere else.

If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am only for myself, what good am I? If not now, when?

~Ethics of the Fathers

Each Man

Each man is different;
Each man must find his own path.
Each man is the same;
Each man must find his own path.

Nature has undoubtedly mastered the art of winter gardening and even the most experienced gardener can learn from the unrestrained beauty around them.

~Vincent A. Simeone


One of my current pet theories is that the winter is a kind of evangelist, more subtle than Billy Graham, of course, but of the same stuff.

~Shirley Ann Grau

Winter dawn

Winter dawn is the color of metal,
The trees stiffen into place like burnt nerves.

~Sylvia Plath, Waking in Winter

Pale January

Pale January lay
In its cradle day by day
Dead or living, hard to say.

~Alfred Austin, Primroses
Spring, summer, and fall fill us with hope; winter alone reminds us of the human condition.

~Mignon McLaughlin,

I like

I like these cold, gray winter days. Days like these let you savor a bad mood.

That’s all you need

"That’s all you need to feel when you want to create something new. That’s the only affirmation that truly frees you to go with the flow, and to have fun while you’re doing it. Use your desire to set up your intent, ask, affirm that it is yours already and have a cup of tea, or go play! Lighten up. Leave it to gestate. Stop pulling up the shoots to look at the roots. Stop opening the oven. Stop standing in front of an empty shelf at the supermarket waiting for the Tim Tams to materialize. It’s NOT HELPING! In fact it’s hindering! Many of you have done plenty of asking, but are not making space to receive effectively. To keep noticing from a place of lack that you don’t have something you want keeps it away from you!"

~Shelly Sha'h'ana

Always remember

Always remember one thing: whenever it is a question of choice between the old and the new, always choose the new, whatsoever the cost, and you will never be a loser. Choose the old and you have chosen death, and you have rejected life.


There are moments

There are moments, dark moments, monents of pain and hurt and aches and bruises. There are dark nights but they are part of the whole game. Without the dark night you cannot have a bright morning, and without the hurt, without the pain, you cannot enjoy either. They go together. Only dead people go beyond pain and then they go beyond pleasure too.



Truth cannot be borrowed, it cannot be transferred, it cannot be a gift from anybody to you. You have to dig for it inside your being.

You have the power

You have the power in the present moment to change limiting beliefs and consciously plant the seeds for the future of your choosing. As you change your mind, you change your experience.

Your fears

Your fears stand between you and what you want. They're worth facing!

You can only

You can only see others as clearly as you see yourself.

How can anyone

How can anyone ever love you for who you are if you become someone else to be with them?

Release your snapshot images of relationships. Life is a motion picture.
~Stephen C. Paul


Everything you're looking for lies behind the mask you wear.
~Stephen C. Paul

An unrevealed part

An unrevealed part of yourself is never understood.
~Stephen C. Paul


Everything and everyone in your life is there by your choice.
~Stephen C. Paul

Every time

Every time you settle for the unacceptable, you suffer a small death.
~Stephen C. Paul

Your relationships

Your relationships reflect your fears and limits. How can anyone ever give you what you won't allow?

~Stephen C. Paul


When you give up your own truth to win at someone else's game, everyone loses.
~Stephen C. Paul

You live

You live for others and wonder why you're never fulfilled.

The heart refuses

The heart refuses to be imprisoned; in its first and narrowest pulses it already tends outward with a vast force and to immense and innumerable expansions.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson
