Everything on

Everything on heaven and earth, all the minutes before this moment... have prepared you for today. Use all that you know to make it perfect. It is the sum total of your life.
~Zen to Zany

Arguing with a fool

Arguing with a fool only proves that there are two.

The words you speak

The words you speak become the house you live in.

Holding on

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

In the name of God

In the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.
~Leo Tolstoy

And yet there is only

And yet there is only
One great thing,
the only thing,
To live to see
in huts and on journeys
The great day that dawns
And the light 
that fills the world.

~Innuit Saying

When we understand

When we understand, we are at the center of the circle, and there we sit while Yes and No chase each other around the circumference.

She generally

She generally gave herself very good advice,
(though she very seldom followed it).
~Lewis Carroll

You don't look

You don't look out there for God,
something in the sky,
you look in you.
~Alan Watts

You didn't come

You didn't come into this world. You came out of it, like a wave from the ocean. 
You are not a stranger here.
~Alan Watts

When you are able

When you are able to contain both the light and dark together, that is a very enlightening state. It means that you no longer have to choose one experience over another. You do not have to choose love OR hate, blame OR forgiveness, sadness OR joy, anger OR openheartedness. You are no longer polarized; no particular feeling boxes you in and keeps you from the light of true self. You then have access to the full range of human experiences you came into this life to embrace.
~Martia Nelson

Kiss your life

Kiss your life. 
Accept it, just as it is. 
So that those moments of happiness 
you're waiting for don't pass you by.
~Philip Bosman

Don't expect

Don't expect someone better, someone saner or more insightful or miraculously and infinitely wiser, to suddenly occupy your body no matter where you are.
~Oriah Mountain Dreamer

Everything you need

Everything you need you already have. You are complete right now, you are a whole, total person, not an apprentice person on the way to someplace else.
~Wayne Dyer

Each day

Each day, accept everything as coming to you from God. 
At night, give everything back into His hands.
~Sri Gyanamata

Life can be

Life can be cruel and terrible, 
and anyone who expects to escape that fact is asking for a life at sea without storms.
~Harry Emerson Fosdick


Hate is just fear worn inside out.
~Tom Brown Jr

What comes

What comes of itself, let it come.
~Paramahansa Yogananda
