Beginning the day,

I see that life is a miracle.

Attentive to each moment,

I keep my mind clear like a calm river.

Thich Nhat Hanh

The greatest discovery of my generation

is that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes

of their minds,

can change the outer aspects of their lives.

William James

If one advances carefully in the direction of his dreams,

and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined,

he will meet with success unexpected in common hours.

Henry David Thoreau

We are travelers on a cosmic journey

stardust, swirling and dancing in the

eddies and whirlpools of infinity.

Deepak Chopra

The secret of life may not be in the search for answers,

but in the pursuing of unanswerable questions

in good company.

Rachel Naomi Remen

When we are conscious of being part of a wider universe,
we can begin to see that what we do matters.  Every action
we take has a consequence somewhere, whether good or bad.
Everything that happens affects a part of the whole body of life.
Having this knowledge of being part of something larger may motivate
us to contribute to the greater good in whatever ways we can.

Sallirae Henderson

To let go isn't to forget, not to think about, or ignore. It doesn't
leave feelings of anger, jealousy, or regret. Letting go isn't about
winning or losing. It's not about pride and it's not about how you
appear, and it's not obsessing or dwelling on the past. Letting go
isn't blocking memories or thinking sad thoughts, and it doesn't leave
emptiness, hurt, or sadness. It's not about giving in or giving up.
Letting go isn't about loss and it's not about defeat. To let go is
to cherish the memories, but to overcome and move on. It is having
an open mind and confidence in the future. Letting go is learning
and experiencing and growing. To let go is to be thankful for the
experiences that made you laugh, made you cry, and made you grow.
It's about all that you have, all that you had, and all that you will
soon gain. Letting go is having the courage to accept change,
and the strength to keep moving. Letting go is growing up. It is
realizing that the heart can sometimes be the most potent remedy.
To let go is to open a door, and to clear a path and set yourself free.




Contentment. . . comes as the infallible result of great
acceptances, great humilities—of not trying to make
ourselves this or that (to conform to some dramatized
version of ourselves), but of surrendering ourselves
to the fullness of life—of letting life flow through us.

David Grayson

Acceptance of one's life has nothing to do with
resignation; it does not mean running away from the
struggle. On the contrary it means accepting it as it comes. . . .
To accept is to say yes to life in its entirety.

Paul Tournier

The important thing is not to stop questioning.  Curiosity has its
own reason for existing.  One cannot help but be in awe when
one contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous
structure of reality.  It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend
a little of this mystery every day.  Never lose a holy curiosity.

Albert Einstein
