in "Developing a foundation of amity and goodwill toward all life"




"Complete and unqualified respect is and must be the foundation stone of any mutually satisfying relationship, and must be the basis from which we enter into relationships with our children. Without it, we all inevitably end up in humiliation and disgrace. ... I think adultism — treating young people with less than complete respect — is grounded in a fundamental distortion in how we see and experience the nature of the world and especially the nature of human beings ... we carry a heavy load of shame about our nature and a horrible wound from being torn apart from our naturally complete interconnectedness with all of life. The sum total of our experience has resulted in an awful misunderstanding about the nature of being human. Incredibly, we are pulled to view our children as inherently lazy, irresponsible, stupid and manipulative in the worst sense of these words. So we justify disrespectful attempts to control or punish them as necessary to shape them properly or correct their brutish, natural tendencies; all this is done 'for their own good,' of course."

— John Breeding, Ph.D.
in "Developing a foundation of amity and goodwill toward all life"




"Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, and though they are with you, yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday."

— Khalil Gibran

— Amber Housley
in "You have a choice every single day"




"Stop comparing where you're at with where everyone else is. It doesn't move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey. A path that's right for someone else won't necessarily be a path that's right for you. And that's okay. Your journey isn't right or wrong, or good or bad. It's just different. Your life isn't meant to look like anyone else's because you aren't like anyone else. You're a person all your own with a unique set of goals, obstacles, dreams, and needs. So stop comparing, and start living."

Meaning lies in us."

"Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such."

— Henry Miller
in "Your struggles seem to be external, but we are always destroyed from the inside out"

— Unknown Author
in "Love all over again"




"If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place."

— Eckhart Tolle
in "Get the inside right"




"TO BE HOPEFUL in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness. What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction. And if we do act, in however small a way, we don't have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory."

— Howard Zinn

And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."

"When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. That's a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact, and that is—everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. The minute that you understand that you can poke life and actually something will, you know if you push in, something will pop out the other side, that you can change it, you can mold it. That's maybe the most important thing. It's to shake off this erroneous notion that life is there and you're just gonna live in it, versus embrace it, change it, improve it, make your mark upon it. I think that's very important and however you learn that, once you learn it, you'll want to change life and make it better, cause it's kind of messed up, in a lot of ways. Once you learn that, you'll never be the same again."

"Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly.

In proportion as he simplifies his life, the laws of the universe will appear less complex, and solitude will not be solitude, nor poverty poverty, nor weakness weakness. If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them."

It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person—without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other. They allow the other absolute freedom, because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Their happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other."

"The purpose of relationship may not be what you think. If you are excited about forming a relationship based on what it looks like you can get, rather than what you can give, you have started off on the wrong foot entirely, and you could be heading for a big disappointment.

But the truth is that the way other people operate is not about you. Most people are so caught up in their own responsibilities, struggles, and anxiety that the thought of asking someone else how they're doing doesn't even cross their mind. They aren't inherently bad or uncaring — they're just busy and self-focused. And that's okay. It's not evidence of some fundamental failing on your part. It doesn't make you unloveable or invisible. It just means that those people aren't very good at looking beyond their own world."

Often, due to a lack of knowledge, we accept anger and hatred as natural parts of our minds. This is an example of ignorance being the source of our problems. To reduce our destructive emotions we strengthen the positive ones; such emotional hygiene can contribute to a healthier society."

— Dalai Lama
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Forgiving someone doesn't mean that we condone their behavior. The act of forgiveness takes place in our own mind. It really has nothing to do with the other person. The reality of true forgiveness lies in setting ourselves free from holding on to the pain. It's simply an act of releasing ourselves from the negative energy."

— Louise Hay
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Mentally, physically and emotionally we are the same. We each have the potential to good and bad and to be overcome by disturbing emotions such as anger, fear, hatred, suspicion and greed. These emotions can be the cause of many problems. On the other hand if you cultivate loving kindness, compassion and concern for others, there will be no room for anger, hatred and jealousy."

— Dalai Lama
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Obstacles are not opposing you, but merely and gently re-routing you. It is important not to view that which stands in your way as your 'enemy.' It can often be your best friend, sending you on a detour that takes you around what could have been your biggest stumbling block. Send a word of gratitude, then, for anything that seems to be 'opposing' you now. All things in life happen for good."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future."

— Deepak Chopra
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Obstacles are not opposing you, but merely and gently re-routing you. It is important not to view that which stands in your way as your 'enemy.' It can often be your best friend, sending you on a detour that takes you around what could have been your biggest stumbling block. Send a word of gratitude, then, for anything that seems to be 'opposing' you now. All things in life happen for good. Trust God about that."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose."

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"I align myself with people who support my growth. If you meet someone whose soul is not aligned with yours, send them love and move along."

— Wayne W. Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The past is the past and has nothing to do with you. It has nothing to do with Right Now. Do not let anything from your past inhibit you in this Present Moment. Start over. Start Fresh. Each day. Each hour, if it serves you. Heck, each minute. Just get going."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When you feel that you're stuck in some situation, or when your affirmations aren't working, it usually means that there's more forgiveness work to be done. When you don't flow freely with life in the present moment, it usually means that you're holding on to a past moment. It can be regret, sadness, hurt, fear, guilt, blame, anger, resentment, or sometimes even a desire for revenge. Each one of these states comes from a space of unforgiveness, a refusal to let go and come into the present moment. Only in the present moment can you create your future. Try these affirmations: Today I listen to my feelings, and I am gentle with myself. I know that all of my feelings are my friends. The past is over, so it has no power now. The thoughts of this moment create my future. I know that old, negative patterns no longer limit me. I let them go with ease. I cannot change another person. I let others be who they are, and I simply love who I am. Each day is a new opportunity. Yesterday is over and done. Today is the first day of my future."

— Louise Hay
in "Interesting Quotes"




"No one does anything they do not want to do. You always have a reason — and usually, a pretty good one — for doing what you are doing and choosing what you are choosing. Be careful not to convince yourself that you are doing something against your will. Such a thing is impossible. Therefore, be honest with yourself as to why you are choosing to do a particular thing. Then, do it gladly, knowing that you are always getting to do what you want. The statement I have no choice is a lie. You can choose. You simply do not prefer the alternatives available to you, for whatever reason. So you select the outcome that you most prefer."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Everything happens when it needs to happen; everyone is always where they need to be. You will never miss out on what is meant for you, even if it has to come to you in a roundabout way."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Reality is what we take to be true. What we take to be true is what we believe. What we believe is based upon our perceptions. What we perceive depends upon what we look for. What we look for depends upon what we think. What we think depends upon what we perceive. What we perceive determines what we believe. What we believe determines what we take to be true. What we take to be true is our reality."

— Gary Zukav
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Life is the movie you see through your own unique eyes. It makes little difference what's happening out there. It's how you take it that counts."

— Dennis Waitley
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Don't believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding, find out what you already know, and you'll see the way to fly."

"O' Great Spirit help me always to speak the truth quietly, to listen with an open mind when others speak, and to remember the peace that may be found in silence."

— Cherokee Prayer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers."

— M. Scott Peck
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved."

— Helen Keller

"If you don't set goals for yourself, you are doomed to achieve the goals of someone else."

— Brian Tracy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours."

— Ayn Rand
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Live life fully while you're here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human."

— Anthony Robbins
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart."

— Steve Jobs
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us."

— Helen Keller
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer, no disease that enough love will not heal, no door that enough love will not bridge, no wall that enough love will not throw down, no sin that enough love will not redeem... It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble, how hopeless the outlook, how muddled the tangle, how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. If only you could love enough, you could be the happiest and most powerful being in the world."

— Emmet Fox
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The point of life is not to get anywhere - it is to notice that you are, and have always been, already there. There is no such thing as an incorrect path - for on this journey you cannot not get where you are going."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When we lose a loved one to death or end a long-term relationship, it is perfectly normal to grieve. We must honor and recognize each stage of the grief and every emotion we have. When we do not grieve, we get stuck. We owe it to ourselves and the memory of the relationship to grieve and cleanse our soul."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Like heroes in a mythic journey, we are meant to struggle to make the right choices."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"

— Joel Osteen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You cannot be truthful if you are not courageous. You cannot be loving if you are not courageous. You cannot be trusting if you are not courageous. You cannot enter into reality if you are not courageous. Hence courage comes first... and everything else follows."

— Osho
in "Interesting Quotes"




"This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good."

— Unknown Author
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Life's not about expecting, hoping and wishing, it's about doing, being and becoming. It's about the choices you've just made, and the ones you're about to make, it's about the things you choose to say - today. It's about what you're gonna do after you finish reading this."

— Mike Dooley
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There is no need of any competition with anybody. You are yourself, and as you are, you are perfectly good. Accept yourself."

— Osho
in "Interesting Quotes"

"Treat yourself with love and respect, and you will attract people who show you love and respect."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Giving up is not the answer. Neither is giving in. Stand your ground. There is a way of doing that without having to be combative. There is a way of hanging on to your true self, and demonstrating it, without resorting to aggression. But giving up and giving in is not the way. Simply and quietly claiming your right to be You is the way. You know exactly why you received this message today."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Given that life — due to the very fact that it exists — is fantastic, you already have a fantastic life. A life isn't something that you have; it is something that you are. Once your realize that you, because you are part of life, are of infinite substance, then physical circumstances will align with that thought."

— Marianne Williamson
in "Interesting Quotes"




"We cannot change a pain-filled past. What we can do is change how it affects us. The past has already been written, but we have the power to write the future based on self-support and respect. We can write a future full of strength, peace, wealth, and love. All we have to do is what is right now."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"We owe it to ourselves and life to assist, support and serve others. We must remember, however, that we cannot give what we do not have. Give to yourself first!"

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When you have a pile of bills that you have no idea how you are going to pay, you cannot focus on those bills, because you will continue to attract more bills. You have to find a way that works for you to focus on prosperity, despite the bills around you. You have to find a way of feeling good, so you can bring your good to you."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"In every moment we make a decision — whether conscious or unconscious. Will I choose to open my heart, send love, withhold judgment and thus free myself from fear? Or will I close my heart, project fear instead of extending love, judge others, and thus bind myself to fear? The choice is mine and mine alone."

— Marianne Williamson
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Remember, you have been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn't worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens."

— Louise Hay
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you have a problem with a member of your family who is negative, begin by writing a list of all the things you appreciate about that person. Remember to include gratitude, for the person is giving you a great desire for positivity in your life; because that is one of the gifts they are giving you. As you focus with all of your strength on appreciation, you will not only reduce your exposure to the negativity, but at the same time you will be attracting #positive people into your life. Get yourself on to the appreciation frequency, and the law of attraction can only surround you with people who are in a positive, appreciative state."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"

"You can't get to heaven by putting other people through hell."

— Alan Cohen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It's seeing through the facade of pretense. It's the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true."

— Adyashanti
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Be patient and trust. You have to move gradually deeper into your heart. There is a place far down that is like a turbulent river, and that place frightens you. But do not fear. One day it will be quiet and peaceful."

— Henri Nouwen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Smiling can be a deliberate, intentioned act. When it is that, it becomes an act of creation, and a powerful tool. Be quick to smile, and quick to share your smile with others. You will light up your heart and light up the room."

— Neale Donald Walsch

"Challenge yourself to express love daily. Tell your children you love them daily. Tell your partner you love him/her daily. Tell your parents you love them daily. Tell yourself that you love YOU daily."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Art begs you to notice it. Why? Because art is God's way of saying hello. So pay attention to poetry. Pay attention to music. Pay attention to paintings and sculptures and photo exhibits and ballets and plays. Don't let all this go unnoticed. Your world is shouting out to you, revealing something intrinsically glorious about itself. Listen carefully. Love art, the way art loves Life."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When was the last time you thanked you for always being there for you? Self appreciation soothes an aching soul."

— Swami Parthasarathy
in "Interesting Quotes"

— Henri Nouwen
in "Interesting Quotes"

"The only difference between heaven and hell is believing a thought."

— Byron Katie
in "Interesting Quotes"




"All that Life asks is that you move through Life with a reverence for Life. Yet this reverence for Life must be displayed in all things. Even in the littlest things. Perhaps especially so. For instance, if you choose to consume animals, do you limit your purchases of flesh to cook to only those suppliers who treat animals humanely? Do you even know who those suppliers are? Does this matter to you? How you treat other Life Forms does matter. It says something about how you want Life to be. You see, we are creating all of this. All of this."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If someone has offended you, insulted you, or disappointed you, let it go! If you are remembering all the ways you have been hurt or forgotten, let it go! Ask yourself, what good does it do for me to hold on to this?"

in "Interesting Quotes"




"What you see is evidence of what you believe. Believe it and you'll see it."

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"I have not ceased being fearful, but I have ceased to let fear control me. I have accepted fear as a part of life - specifically the fear of change, the fear of the unknown; and I have gone ahead despite the pounding in my heart that says: turn back, turn back, you'll die if you venture too far."

— Erica Jong
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The law of attraction is a law of nature. It is impersonal and it does not see good things or bad things. It is receiving your thoughts and reflecting back to you those thoughts as your life experience. The law of attraction simply gives you whatever it is you are thinking about."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You do not have to wait for wisdom to befall you in order to know what move to make now. The wisdom, the insight, the answer you have been waiting for is waiting for you. It is already inside of you. In fact, you may have already heard it and not believed it. If you want to be clear about this answer, simply write your question, condition, or problem down on a piece of paper tonight, then pick up the paper tomorrow morning and compose a calm, wisdom-filled response. Don't be surprised if you surprise yourself with the answer you receive."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"

One of the first steps in developing a courageous outlook to life is being able to look at ourselves, our beliefs, attitudes, and patterns. Courage enables us to examine. Examination enables us to choose."

— Iyanla Vanzant

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"I learned the hard way that I cannot always count on others to respect my feelings, even if I respect theirs. Being a good person doesn't guarantee that others will be good people. You only have control over yourself and how you choose to be as a person. As for others, you can only choose to accept them or walk away."

— Unknown Author

"So long as we believe in our heart of hearts that our capacity is limited and we grow anxious and unhappy, we are lacking in faith. One who truly trusts in God has no right to be anxious about anything."

— Paramahansa Yogananda
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You don't ever have to feel guilty about removing toxic people from your life. It doesn't matter whether someone is a relative, romantic interest, employer, childhood friend, or a new acquaintance — you don't have to make room for people who cause you pain or make you feel small. It's one thing if a person owns up to their behavior and makes an effort to change. But if a person disregards your feelings, ignores your boundaries, and continues to treat you in a harmful way, they need to go."

— Daniell Koepke
in "Interesting Quotes"




"This is the time. This is the place. This is the vastness. Right here is paradise. Always. Always."

— Richard Bach
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The spiritual journey does not consist of arriving at a new destination where a person gains what he did not have, or becomes what he is not. It consists in the dissipation of one's own ignorance concerning oneself and life, and the gradual growth of that understanding which begins the spiritual awakening."

— Aldous Huxley
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Generosity is another quality which, like patience, letting go, non-judging, and trust, provides a solid foundation for mindfulness practice. You might experiment with using the cultivation of generosity as a vehicle for deep self-observation and inquiry as well as an exercise in giving. A good place to start is with yourself. See if you can give yourself gifts that may be true blessings, such as self-acceptance, or some time each day with no purpose. Practice feeling deserving enough to accept these gifts without obligation-to simply receive from yourself, and from the universe."

— Jon Kabat-Zinn
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The mistake people make is to wait for something to happen to them before they begin searching. They want the voice of God, or something, to tell them to get started. Or maybe they know they should be doing something but they procrastinate, hoping that tomorrow they'll have more conviction and be more determined. What they forget is there may be no tomorrow for them."

— Richard Rose
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The spiritual journey is individual, highly personal. It can't be organized or regulated. It isn't true that everyone should follow one path. Listen to your own truth."

— Ram Dass
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If there was a particular house you wanted, or a particular relationship or job you wanted, and you didn't get it, the Universe is telling you that it was not good enough and did not match your dream. It is also telling you that it has something BETTER and more worthy of you.Something better is coming ... you're allowed to be excited!"

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Problems are vision tests. They remind us to look beyond what we see on the outside to what we know on the inside. They challenge us to broaden our perspective and alter our approach to life. Sometimes a change of perspective may be all that it will take to transform a painful, frustrating, or shameful experience into an empowering growth experience."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Good is towing the line, being behaved, being quiet, being passive, fitting in, being liked, and great is being messy, having a belly, speaking your mind, standing up for what you believe in, fighting for another paradigm, not letting people talk you out of what you know to be true."

— Eve Ensler
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You are a pure child of God, beautiful in your innocence — and that this is true no matter what you may have done. There is no offense you could ever commit that can rob you of your magnificence, or of the wonder of who you are. Yet who among us hasn't fallen from the path, betrayed another, acted unwisely, fallen prey to temptation, given in to a craving or addiction? All of us are human. And in God's eyes that makes us perfect. We're simply, sometimes, mistaken. And God loves us anyway. Immensely. Completely. Eternally. Just as we are."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Every single person deserves to live a wonderful life, and they have the power to do that through the law of attraction. When you tend to your happiness and joy, something wonderful happens. You begin to overflow with joy, and every single person that you come into contact with is touched by your joy. One person in joy brings so much joy to the world through the magnificent matrix of our Universe. The power within each of us is unfathomable when focused in the direction of all good for all."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Crying purifies and cleanses. I once read about a scientific experiment which demonstrated that there are 38 toxic chemicals in a tear of sadness, while only one toxin exists in a tear of joy. As you cry in sadness, fear, or confusion, you cleanse the body and spirit of toxins which cloud the mind and prevent it from accepting the truth."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Surround yourself with people who make you happy. People who make you laugh, who help you when you're in need. People who genuinely care. They are the ones worth keeping in your life. Everyone else is just passing through."

— Karl Marx
in "Interesting Quotes"




"No storm can last forever. It will never rain 365 days consecutively. Keep in mind that trouble comes to pass, not to stay. Don't worry! No storm, not even the one in your life, can last forever."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Willpower is the key to success. Successful people strive no matter what they feel by applying their will to overcome apathy, doubt or fear. "

— Dan Millman
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Time and size do not exist in the Universe. It is as easy to heal a pimple as a disease. The process is identical; the difference is in our minds. So if you have attracted some affliction to you, reduce it in your mind to the size of a pimple, let go of all negative thoughts, and then focus on the perfection of health."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"It's good to be aware that a certain amount of fear is going to accompany every change in your life—a change for the worse or a change for the better. Knowing this can stop you from moving into fear about Change Itself. If you start fearing change generically you could wind up shrinking from ever making any kind of change at all for the rest of your days—even a change that obviously should be made for your own good."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Sometimes we make life very difficult for ourselves. We have a great ability to create our own stress. We may refuse to see the good in anything or anyone. We sometimes forget to count our blessings and complain about lack. If we choose to struggle with the issues of life, they will be very willing to fight us."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There is no more miserable human being than one in whom nothing is habitual but indecision."

— William James
in "Interesting Quotes"

"Look not mournfully into the past. It comes not back again. Wisely improve the present. It is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future, without fear."

— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
in "Interesting Quotes"




"I'll repeat something you might consider tattooing on your forehead: What we fear doing most is usually what we most need to do."

— Tim Ferriss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When we feel stuck, going nowhere—even starting to slip backward—we may actually be backing up to get a running start."

— Dan Millman
in "Interesting Quotes"




"As far as the law of attraction is concerned there is only one person in the world - YOU! For the law of attraction the other person is you, and that other person is you, and those other people are you, because whatever you think and feel about anyone else, you bring to YOU."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Life always gives us exactly the teacher we need at every moment. This includes every mosquito, every misfortune, every red light, every traffic jam, every obnoxious supervisor (or employee), every illness, every loss, every moment of joy or depression, every addiction, every piece of garbage, every breath. Every moment is the guru."

— Joko Beck
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Live the reality you wish to experience, beginning now. Not only see yourself as prosperous, act this idea out. You can do it in small ways. The Universe doesn't care. It's the energy behind the gesture that counts, not the size of the gesture. So go ahead. Give some money away today. Buy something special today. Act prosperous today. The Universe will get the message when you do."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When someone does you harm, it seems only natural that you should do the same to them, right? Wrong! You can never get even with someone who has harmed you. Any attempt to do so puts you behind the eight ball, again. Two wrongs never make a right."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You can never become a great man or woman until you have overcome anxiety, worry, and fear. It is impossible for an anxious person, a worried one, or a fearful one to perceive truth; all things are distorted and thrown out of their proper relations by such mental states, and those who are in them cannot read the thoughts of God."

Above all things, see to it that you do not hold malice or enmity toward any one; to do so cuts you off from the mind whose treasures you seek to make your own. Lay aside all narrow personal ambition and determine to seek the highest good."

— Wallace D. Wattles

"The quickest way to block your in-flow of good is to begrudge someone else what they have. There are three principles of prosperity we must observe to ensure we receive our good: (1) Ask for what you want, (2) Give what you want away, (3) Be willing to see someone else get what you want before you do. When we follow these principles, we demonstrate our faith that no matter what we have, there is more than enough to go around."

in "Interesting Quotes"




"You need to read more. No, really. You need to read more. There's a book right now waiting to be read by you. Do you think this book has come into your awareness by accident? It has been placed before you by your Consciousness. Go get it. Read it. Make margin notes. Do it now. Sometimes Life jumps out at you with its message, fairly screaming at you: get this. This is one of those times. I'm telling you, there's a book you've been scheduled to read right now. Don't ignore the schedule. It's Divine Intervention."

— Neale Donald Walsch

— Unknown Author

Peace of mind gives us the strength to keep trying and keep walking along the path that we KNOW is right for our lives."

— Robert Alan

— Robert Alan
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When we're incomplete, we're always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we're still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising. This can go on and on — series polygamy — until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment. Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter."

— Tom Robbins
in "Interesting Quotes"

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"

Stop whatever you're doing for ten seconds and find The Silence. Visit The Quiet. Just for ten seconds. Do it six times today. One minute a day. That's all it takes. One minute, divided into six parts. Go ahead. Do it now."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"

— Caroline Myss

"You can now give up any neurotic beliefs and activities associated with perfection. You can save the time, energy and money you are spending trying to make the world perfect.

You are not going to lure me into feeling bad. No! you are not going to convince me that I have to be angry! I am going to think good thoughts no matter what. Try responding to a negative feeling once or twice in this way and watch how fast it will leave you alone."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There are worse things in life than are going on right now for you. If you don't think so, pick up a newspaper. If you don't believe me, talk to some friends. This is not the end of the world. My mother used to say, Even this shall pass. She also used to say, When you are 90, how important do you think this will seem? Then she would advise me, give it that same importance today."

in "Interesting Quotes"




"Do your thing and don't care if they like it."

— Tina Fey
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you love a person, you accept the total person. With all the defects. Because those defects are a part of the person.

— Osho

in "Interesting Quotes"




"Life's wonder is that it is a process in which you, as a sentient being filled with the consciousness of self-awareness, have the opportunity to create your own experience and your own reality, to know yourself as you appear to be, and to express yourself as you came to be, and finally, to recreate yourself as you wish to be in the next grandest version of yourself."

"Acceptance means no complaining, and happiness means no complaining about the things over which you can do nothing."

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The moment you become miserly you are closed to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing. The moment you start clinging to things, you have missed the target — you have missed. Because things are not the target, you, your innermost being, is the target — not a beautiful house, but a beautiful you; not much money, but a rich you; not many things, but an open being, available to millions of things."

— Osho
in "Interesting Quotes"

"To honor life, we must be willing to grow through what we don't know yet, and outgrow what we know no longer fits us. We must be willing to give in to the process, moment by moment, realizing a new plot may be unfolding."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Within this nonresistance, life flows wonderfully and beautifully, almost magically. Things show up when they need to show up. Decisions are made without actually deciding them; everything has a sense of obviousness. It is the experience of Spirit completely unhindered, uncorrupted by illusion, conditioning or contradiction."

— Adyashanti
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You have the power to heal your life, and you need to know that. We think so often that we are helpless, but we're not. We always have the power of our minds... Claim and consciously use your power."

"Be less of a judge and you will be surprised that when you become a witness and you don't judge yourself, you stop judging others too. And that makes you more human, more compassionate, more understanding."

— Osho
in "Interesting Quotes"




"See if you can catch yourself complaining, in either speech or thought, about a situation you find yourself in, what other people do or say, your surroundings, your life situation, even the weather. To complain is always nonacceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself into a victim. When you speak out, you are in your power. So change the situation by taking action or by speaking out if necessary or possible; leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness."

— Eckhart Tolle
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You cannot help another who will not help him- or herself. In the end, all souls must walk their path — and the reason they are walking a particular path may not be clear to us...or even to them at the level of ordinary human consciousness. Do what you can to help others, of course. Show love and caring whenever and wherever you can. But do not get caught up in someone else's story to the point where you start writing it."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Start each day by seeing it the way you would want it to be. See yourself handling every responsibility peacefully and effectively. Trust that even when the results you desire do not show up immediately, they will eventually show up."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Don't get to the end of your life and regret all the things you didn't do."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Words may help you understand something, but experience allows you to know. Never, ever trade your own experience for someone else's words about anything that is really important. Like God, for instance. Or love. Or what is true about another. This is a simple awareness, but it comes to you today at exactly the right time. If you think about why, you will know."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The Divine only asks us to be willing to do whatever is necessary to move into our own state of Divinity, which means we must develop wisdom, judgment, and courage through willingness."

— Christiane Northrup
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When you say I am, the words that follow are summoning creation with a mighty force, because you are declaring it to be fact. You are stating it with a mighty force, because you are declaring it to be fact. You are stating it with certainty. And so immediately after you say, I am tired or I am broke or I am sick or I am late or I am overweight or I am old, the Genie says, Your wish is my command."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The start of the day can be the start of a whole new life. Why not use this beginning of the month to create a new beginning for you in many ways? You know that you've been waiting to get going with your daring idea, your wonderful thought, for a long time. Why not start now? The thing is this: if you do not start using any excuse at all, you will not start ever. So use this day as your excuse — and...get going. DO IT. Hurry, before you change your mind. Again."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Are you telling the truth about what you feel? What you know? Who you are? Or, are you sugar coating the truth to yourself and others to avoid hurting their feelings and putting yourself on the spot? When you do not tell the truth, the lie controls your life."

— Iyanla Vanzant

"If every human being recognized the power of the love and forgiveness principle, all consciousness on Earth would change instantly."

— Kuan Yin
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Life repeats itself mindlessly - unless you become mindful, it will go on repeating like a wheel. Thats why Buddhists call it the wheel of life and death, the wheel of time. It moves like a wheel: birth is followed by death, death is followed by birth; love is followed by hate, hate is followed by love; success is followed by failure, failure is followed by success. Just see! If you can watch just for a few days, you will see a pattern emerging, a wheel pattern. One day, a fine morning, you are feeling so good and so happy, and another day you are so dull, so dead that you start thinking of committing suicide. And just the other day you were so full of life, so blissful that you were feeling thankful to God, that you were in a mood of deep gratefulness, and today there is great complaint and you don't see the point why one should go on living.... And it goes on and on, but you don't see the pattern. Once you see the pattern, you can get out of it."

— Dalai Lama
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You actually don't have to lie in it just because you made your bed. Somebody told you a falsehood if they told you that you have to live with your past decisions, choices, and actions. The past is past and has nothing to do with you. It has nothing to do with Right Now. Do not let anything from your past inhibit you in this Present Moment. Start over. Start Fresh. Each day. Each hour, if it serves you. Heck, each minute. Just get going. Just do it. Just say it. With love. All else will take care of itself."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"

in "Interesting Quotes"




"Facing personal truths and purging yourself of addictions or manipulative habits require strength, courage, humility, faith, and other qualities of a soul with stamina, because you are not just changing yourself; you are changing your universe.

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Changing your life does not always mean that you stop doing certain things. It may mean that you start doing certain other things.

— Iyanla Vanzant

— Osho
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If there is peace in your mind you will find peace with everybody. If your mind is agitated you will find agitation everywhere.

— Og Mandino
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The real object of our love is not outside of us, the real object of our love is ourselves. We have to know how to love ourselves, know how to return to our true nature, to see the wholesome, the good, the true and the beautiful within us. Then we will be able to see that in others."

— Thich Nhat Hanh

"Remember that your thoughts are the primary cause of everything. So when you think a sustained thought it is immediately sent out into the Universe. That thought magnetically attaches itself to the like frequency, and then within seconds sends the reading of that frequency back to you through your feelings. Put another way, your feelings are communication back to you from the Universe, telling you what frequency you are currently on. Your feelings are your frequency feedback mechanism!"

Lavish love on every living being you meet. See how different you feel at the end of the day."

— Sarah Ban Breathnach
in "Interesting Quotes"

"The past is no more and the future is not yet: both are unnecessarily moving in directions which don't exist. One used to exist, but no longer exists, and one has not even started to exist. The only right person is one who lives moment to moment, whose arrow is directed to the moment, who is always here and now; wherever he is, his whole consciousness, his whole being, is involved in the reality of here and in the reality of now. Thats the only right direction. Only such a man can enter into the golden gate. The present is the golden gate. Here-now is the golden gate. ...And you can be in the present only if you are not ambitious—no accomplishment, no desire to achieve power, money, prestige, even enlightenment, because all ambition leads you into the future. Only a non-ambitious man can remain in the present. A man who wants to be in the present has not to think, has just to see and enter the gate. Experience will come, but experience has not to be premeditated."

— Osho
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally."

— Eckhart Tolle
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Fear is the most debilitating emotion that there is, and every one of us can live a life without fear. The key to absolute freedom and joy for each and every one of us is to let go of fear. When you understand that fear puts you on a frequency of attracting more fearful events and circumstances into your life, you will understand how important it is to shift yourself. People are in fear of being late, of losing their job, of paying the bills, of getting sick, and the list goes on. But the fear of those things is actually summoning them to us. The law of attraction is impersonal, and whatever we focus on with feeling is bringing it to us. When fearful thoughts come, stamp them out immediately. Send them on their way and replace them with anything that makes you feel good."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Like a thief entering an empty house, bad thoughts cannot in any way harm an empty mind."

— Padmasanbhava
in "Interesting Quotes"




"I think that Awareness is a very, very important aspect of Life. I think it's an important quality to nurture and to grow. So look deeply into each moment. Savor each nanosecond. Don't miss a single cloud formation, if you can help it. Or a single fragrance. Or a single nuance in the energy of your Beloved. Don't miss this; don't miss this, don't miss this."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You may be up against a big challenge today, but that means you have a big destiny. The size of your problem is an indication of the size of your future."

— Joel Osteen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Pausing is a good thing. Everything has to stop at some time in order to keep going. To stop, to rest, or to pause means to do nothing. It means no thinking! No moving! No decisions! What a blessing it is to have the ability to stop and gain strength before moving forward."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Ultimately, healing is the result of a mystical act of surrender, an awakening that transcends any religion. It is an intimate dialog of truth between the individual and the Divine."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Let others lead small lives, but not you.. Let others argue over small things, but not you.. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you.. Let others leave their future in someone else's hands, but not you."

— Jim Rohn
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There is within each one of us a potential for goodness beyond our imagining; for giving which seeks no reward; for listening without judgment; for loving unconditionally."

— Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When love first happens, the individuals are giving each other energy unconsciously and both people feel buoyant and elated. That's the incredible high we call being 'in love.' Unfortunately, once they expect this feeling to come from another person, they cut themselves off from the energy in the universe and begin to rely even more on the energy from each other—only now there doesn't seem to be enough and so they stop giving each other energy and fall back into their dramas in an attempt to control each other and force the other's energy their way."

— James Redfield
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses, and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins."

— Bob Moawad
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough."

— Eckhart Tolle
in "Interesting Quotes"




"We can never obtain peace in the world if we neglect the inner world and don't make peace with ourselves. World peace must develop out of inner peace. Without inner peace it is impossible to achieve world peace, external peace. Weapons themselves do not act. They have not come out of the blue. Man has made them. But even given those weapons, those terrible weapons, they cannot act by themselves. As long as they are left alone in storage they cannot do any harm. A human being must use them. Someone must push the button. Satan, the evil powers, cannot push that button. Human beings must do it."

— Dalai Lama
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Quit worrying about how everything is going to turn out. Live one day at a time; better yet, make the most of this moment. It's good to have a big picture outlook, to set goals, to establish budgets and make plans, but if you're always living in the future, you're never really enjoying the present in the way God wants you to."

— Joel Osteen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Surround yourself with beautiful things. Life has a lot of grey and sadness - look for that rainbow and frame it. There is beauty in everything, sometimes you just have to look a little harder to see it."

— Charlotte Kitley
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You cannot be useful to yourself, others or God if you run yourself ragged. In order to serve others, support others, give to others, you must first be able to serve, support and give to yourself."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Forgiveness is one sure way out of debt. Forgiving does not mean saying that what happened to you doesn't matter, or that it is all right for someone to have violated you. It simply means releasing the negative feelings you have about the event and the person or persons involved."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal."

"I am bigger than anything that can happen to me. All these things, sorrow, misfortune, and suffering, are outside my door. I am in the house and I have the key."

— Charles Fletcher Lummis
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."

— Theodore Roosevelt
in "Interesting Quotes"




"As part of your mystical awakening, you must come to treasure every detail of your life as significant."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Forget about your life situation and pay attention to your life. Your life situation exists in time. Your life is now. Your life situation is mind-stuff. Your life is real."

— Eckhart Tolle
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Moaning and groaning about things changes nothing, and never does anyone any good. If you don't want to do anything to change it, stop complaining about it. If you can't do anything to change it no matter how much you want to, then accept it for now and simply resolve to create a different tomorrow — but don't let today be ruined while you are waiting. Does that make any sense? It does to me."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Is it worth it? Is the anger, resentment and stress you feel in your body paying off? When you find yourself fighting to get what you want, to have your way, drop your hands to your sides, take a deep breath, and ask yourself, Is this worth fighting for?"

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past. You can't go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches."

"It isn't the things that happen to us in our lives that cause us to suffer, it's how we relate to the things that happen to us that causes us to suffer."

— Pema Chodron
in "Interesting Quotes"




"People are where they are because that's exactly where they really want to be...whether they'll admit that or not."

— Earl Nightingale
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There comes a time when the pain of continuing exceeds the pain of stopping. At that moment, a threshold is crossed. What seemed unthinkable becomes thinkable. Slowly, the realization emerges that the choice to continue what you have been doing is the choice to live in discomfort, and the choice to stop what you have been doing is the choice to breathe deeply and freely again. Once that realization has emerged, you can either honor it or ignore it, but you cannot forget it. What has become known can not become unknown again."

— Gary Zukav
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The recipe for creating anything is really quite simple. Take good or bad feelings (meaning positive or negative vibrations), bake with varying degrees of emotion to increase magnetism, and here comes what we've attracted, like it or not. What we have focused on, and how we have vibrated about it, is what we have gotten... from birth."

— Lynn Grabhorn
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Remember, we are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not. Our actions and states of mind matter, because we're so deeply interconnected with one another. Working on our own consciousness is the most important thing that we are doing at any moment, and being love is the supreme creative act."

— Ram Dass
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Some people who want to heal may not have the will to make the life changes required of them to heal."

— Caroline Myss

— Nisargadatta Maharaj
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Be willing to share all of who you are. So many of us want a partner, but we're not willing to show all of us. That's why we have a weave, we're wearing Spanx and everything is fine. If you're not willing to let your partner see your cellulite or know your biggest fears, then you aren't really ready to share yourself."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"We are not meant to stay wounded. We are supposed to move through our tragedies and challenges and to help each other move through the many painful episodes of our lives. By remaining stuck in the power of our wounds, we block our own transformation. We overlook the greater gifts inherent in our wounds — the strength to overcome them and the lessons that we are meant to receive through them. Wounds are the means through which we enter the hearts of other people. They are meant to teach us to become compassionate and wise."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You will have peace to the extent that you have God, and the further you are away from God the less you will be at peace... Thus you may measure your progress with God by measuring your peace or the lack of it."

— Eckhart Tolle
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Negative feelings are not true feelings at all; rather, they are your thoughts about something, based always on the previous experience of yourself and others. You will not find Truth in your past data, only past data that is based on other past data that is based on other past data, and so forth. Forget your past experience and look directly at the experience you are having Right Here, Right Now. There is your Truth."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You have within you right now, everything you need to deal with whatever the world can throw at you."

— Brian Tracy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"It's important that we share our experiences with other people. Your story will heal you and your story will heal somebody else. When you tell your story, you free yourself and give other people permission to acknowledge their own story."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity to heal."

in "Interesting Quotes"




"Perhaps many of us do not like it where we are in the universe now, but we can all be certain that we got where we are by our own decisions to expand in love or withdraw from it."

— Thaddeus Golas
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Soon the child's clear eye is clouded over by ideas and opinions, preconceptions and abstractions. Simple free being becomes encrusted with the burdensome armor of the ego. Not until years later does an instinct come that a vital sense of mystery has been withdrawn. The sun glints through the pines, and the heart is pierced in a moment of beauty and strange pain, like a memory of paradise. After that day, we become seekers."

— Peter Matthiessen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Observe how much worrying affects your health and to counter the stress of worry with prayer and positive action."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Right now, and in every now-moment, you are either closing or opening. You are either stressfully waiting for something - more money, security, affection - or you are living from your deep heart, opening as the entire moment, and giving what you most deeply desire to give, without waiting."

— David Deida
in "Interesting Quotes"




"See if you can catch yourself complaining, in either speech or thought, about a situation you find yourself in, what other people do or say, your surroundings, your life situation, even the weather. To complain is always nonacceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness."

— Eckhart Tolle
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you don't like the way you are headed, change direction. Go inside. Search your place of inner wisdom. See what this calls on you to do. Then do it."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You can measure the impeccability of your word by your level of self-love. How much you love yourself and how you feel about yourself are directly proportionate to the quality and integrity of your word. When you are impeccable with your word, you feel good; you feel happy and at peace. You can transcend the dream of hell just by making the agreement to be impeccable with your word. Right now I am planting that seed in your mind. Whether or not the seed grows depends upon how fertile your mind is for the seeds of love. It is up to you to make this agreement with yourself: I am impeccable with my word. Nurture this seed, and as it grows in your mind, it will generate more seeds of love to replace the seeds of fear. This first agreement will change the kind of seeds your mind is fertile for."

— don Miguel Ruiz
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Worry is the direct descendant of the need to be in control. We cannot see everything. We do not know everything. It's impossible for us to control everything. Keep in mind that the process of life is a spiritual one, governed by invisible, intangible spiritual laws and principles."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You need to make a commitment, and once you make it, then life will give you some answers."

— Gary Zukav
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Love is a way of being. It is the energy that radiates when the blocks to it have been surrendered. It is more than an emotion or a thought— it is a state of being. Love is what we have become through the pathway of surrender."

— David Hawkins
in "Interesting Quotes"




"It is quite natural, in pursuing enlightenment or just in trying to be happier, to look to your everyday experiences for signs of results. Indeed, your daily life is nothing else but an expression of your spiritual condition. Your life will change as you become more loving, but not in ways you can exactly predict. What happens is not important as how you react to what happens."

— Thaddeus Golas
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Look lovingly upon the present, for it holds the only things that are forever true."

— A Course in Miracles
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult—once we truly understand and accept it—then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters."

— M. Scott Peck
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Realize that now, in this moment of time, you are creating. You are creating your next moment based on what you are feeling and thinking. That is what's real."

"If you could only keep quiet, clear of memories and expectations, you would be able to discern the beautiful pattern of events. Its your restlessness that causes chaos."

— Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
in "Interesting Quotes"




"It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there will be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from you action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result."

— Gandhi
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them."

— Thomas Merton
in "Interesting Quotes"




"True intelligence operates silently. Stillness is where creativity and solutions to problems are found."

— Eckhart Tolle
in "Interesting Quotes"




"It is hard for our children to tell us what they really feel. They don't want to hurt us. They don't want to be disrespectful. They may not believe what they think and feel if valuable. As parents, it is sometimes hard for us to let them be who they really are - people, with thoughts, feelings and dreams. We must consider whether the things we want for them are the things they want for themselves."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"At any moment, you have a choice, that either leads you closer to your spirit or further away from it."

— Thich Nhat Hanh
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Since you alone are responsible for your thoughts, only you can change them. You will want to change them when you realize that each thought creates according to its own nature. Remember that the law works at all times and that you are always demonstrating according to the kind of thoughts you habitually entertain. Therefore, start now to think only those thoughts that will bring you health and happiness."

— Paramahansa Yogananda
in "Interesting Quotes"

— David Hawkins
in "Interesting Quotes"




"I have simply stopped arguing with reality. How do I know the wind should blow? It's blowing. How do I know this is the highest order? It's happening. Arguing with 'what is' is like teaching a cat to bark. It's not very fulfilling. I am my friend and no longer confused. The way I know that reality is good is that when I argue the point I experience tension, fear and frustration. I lose - not sometimes, but 100% of the time. It just doesn't feel natural inside: no balance, no connection. I want reality to change? Hopeless. Let me change my thinking. Some of us mentally argue with 'what is.' Others of us attempt to control and change 'what is,' and then tell ourselves and others that we actually had something to do with any apparent change that took place. This leaves no connection or room for God in my life. In the peaceful experience of no opposition to God, I remain aware of my nature: clear, vibrant, a friend, a listener."

— Byron Katie
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake."

— Dalai Lama
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Sticking with that uncertainty, getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos, learning not to panic - this is the spiritual path."

— Pema Chodron
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Spirituality does not require that you work hard toward achieving a result in the future as much as it requires you to be fully present, sincere and committed now, with absolute honesty and willingness to uncover and let go of any illusions that come between you and the realization of Reality."

— Adyashanti
in "Interesting Quotes"




"True creativity flows only from stillness. When stillness becomes conscious, the spiritual dimension enters your life and you begin to be guided by an intelligence far greater than the human mind."

— Eckhart Tolle
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You cannot have love if your heart is closed. You cannot have money if you are afraid of it. You cannot have freedom if you are unwilling to make choices."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You must be good to yourself if you are ever going to be any good for others. This means take a day off once in a while when it's not scheduled. Eat of piece of chocolate when it's not recommended. Take a nap when it's just not possible. Get your face into a good book for an hour when you can't afford to. Soak in a tub when there's no time to. Stop everything when you're not supposed to. Do this now, right now, for goodness sake."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Whatever is in me is stronger than what is out there to defeat me."

— Paulo Coelho
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The road that is built in hope is more pleasant to the traveler than the road built in despair, even though they both lead to the same destination."

— Marian Zimmer Bradley
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The highest state of Love is not a relationship at all, it is simply a state of your Being. Just as trees are green, a lover is loving. They are not green for particular persons, it is not that when you come they become green. The flower goes on spreading it's fragrance whether anybody comes or not, whether anybody appreciates or not. The flower does not start releasing its fragrance when it sees that a great poet is coming by - 'Now this man will appreciate, now this man will be able to understand who I am.' And it does not close its doors when it sees that a stupid, idiotic person is passing there - insensitive, dull, a politician or something like that. It does not close itself - 'What is the point? Why cast pearls before swine?'. No, the flower goes on spreading its fragrance. It is a state of being, not a relationship."

— Osho
in "Interesting Quotes"




"All hatred of others is a reflection of self-hatred. All love of others is a reflection of self-love."

— Alan Cohen
in "Interesting Quotes"

— don Miguel Ruiz
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The only reason why people do not have what they want is because they are thinking more about what they don't want than what they do want. Listen to your thoughts, and listen to the words you are saying. The law is absolute and there are no mistakes."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"All change is change for the better. There is no such thing as change for the worse. Change is the process of Life Itself, and that process could be called by the name evolution. And evolution moves in only one direction: forward, and toward improvement. Therefore, when change visits your life, you can be sure things are turning for the better. It may not look that way in the very moment change arrives, but if you will wait a while and have faith in the process, you will see that this is true."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"No matter how traumatic the end of a relationship may be, the good always outweighs the bad. If you learned in this relationship what not to do in the next, you are better for it. If you learned one new thing about yourself or another person, you know more than you did when you started."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Be bold, and mighty forces will come to your aid."

— Goethe
in "Interesting Quotes"

— Conrad Hilton
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The world is only as lovely as I believe it to be."

— Byron Katie
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You can have everything in life you want if you'll just help enough other people get what they want."

— Zig Ziglar
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The purpose of relationship may not be what you think. If you are excited about forming a relationship based on what it looks like you can get, rather than what you can give, you have started off on the wrong foot entirely, and you could be heading for a big disappointment. The purpose of all relationships is to create a sacred context within which you can express the fullness of who you are. And who you are is an experience you have before you enter relationship, not because you did."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The act of forgiveness is the act of returning to present time. And that's why when one has become a forgiving person, and has managed to let go of the past, what they've really done is they've shifted their relationship with time."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The moment we have a negative experience we get stuck in what was done and how it was done to us. We must learn not to take life so personally. People are not really out to get us. Let us learn to give up anger and fear by replacing those things with love."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Far too many people have no idea of what they can do because all they have been told is what they can't do."

— Zig Ziglar
in "Interesting Quotes"

— Elbert Hubbard
in "Interesting Quotes"

When you face an adversity, when you hit a tough time, one of the best things you can do is simply stay calm. Keep your peace."

— Joel Osteen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Currently, most people imagine themselves to be separate from God, from each other, and from everything else that is. In truth, we are all intrinsically connected with everything - including that which we call Divinity."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The best way to experience power (or anything) is to give it away. Make someone else powerful and you become twice as powerful as you were before. Make someone else loved and you become twice as loved. Make someone else feel good and you feel twice as good. It doesn't get any better than this. And it's all so...simple."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Why do we hold onto negativity? For some reason, we believe that others are affected by our experience of remaining upset, hurt or angry. Holding on to pain, anger, guilt or shame is the glue that binds us to the situation we want to escape."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Life is a process of becoming. A combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death."

"The way you react has been repeated thousands of times, and it become a routine for you. You are conditioned to be a certain way. And that is the challenge: to change your normal reactions, to change your routine, to take a risk and make different choices."

— don Miguel Ruiz
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Many people protest when we explain to them the power of telling the story of their finances as they want it to be rather than as it is, because they believe that they should be factual about what is happening. But if you continue to look at lackful what-is and speak of what-is, you will not find the improvement that you desire. If you want to effect substantial change in your life experience, you must think thoughts that feel different as you think them."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"To be in joy, take a few minutes each day and intentionally send love to everyone you know, and to the world. Really intensify the feeling of love and peace in your heart first, and then feel that love going out from your heart to everyone. The law of attraction matches the frequencies you send out, and will return the love to you multiplied. When applied deeply and correctly this exercise can completely change your life, and at the same time touch the lives of many."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Taking better care of yourself is not merely a matter of good health, it is a measure of spiritual evolution. Some people take better care of their car than they do of their body. Most people, in fact, pay little attention to their body until something goes wrong. Yet why create that kind of situation? Look at what you are eating. How much and how often do you exercise? When was your last check-up? Are you treating your physical vehicle as if it is Divine? Good for you if you are. If you aren't...why not?"

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The key to success is not what you do, it is how you feel about what you are doing. Success begins with a positive attitude, it is the most valuable asset we may own. Success begins with a good feeling about where we are and a positive attitude about where we want to be."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Do not waste what remains of your life in speculating about your neighbors, unless with a view to some mutual benefit. To wonder what so-and-so is doing and why, or what he is saying, or thinking, or scheming—in a word, anything that distracts you from fidelity to the ruler within you—means a loss of opportunity for some other task."

— Marcus Aurelius
in "Interesting Quotes"

— Eckhart Tolle

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"We must be mindful of the energy that our words create. Because every word we utter is a prayer, we must always speak in a manner that promotes love and harmony."

"You cannot find your soul with your mind, you must use your heart. You must know what you are feeling. If you don't know what you are feeling, you will create unconsciously. If you are unconscious of an aspect of yourself; if it operates outside your field of awareness, that aspect has power over you."

— Gary Zukav
in "Interesting Quotes"




"At a certain point, we forgive because we decide to forgive. Healing occurs in the present, not the past. We are not held back by the love we didn't receive in the past, but by the love we're not extending in the present."

— Marianne Williamson

"Dream away, and dream often, and dream big. And never let anyone talk you out of your dreams. What is your dream today? Is it vast enough, bold enough, to hold your soul? Oh, I must have forgotten to tell you. Dreams are the container of the soul. That is, they are the Holding Place of God. So dream big, yes, because the bigger you dream the more of God you let in!"

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Loving yourself has nothing to do with being selfish, self-centered or self-engrossed. It means that you accept yourself for what you are. Loving yourself means that you accept responsibility for your own development, growth and happiness. When you love yourself, you pave the way for all you want and need to come to you at the right time in the perfect way."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"

— Brian Tracy

"Successful reinventions don't happen overnight. Nobody gets super successful without serious hard work. You need to remind yourself every single day that you are working toward something that you know in your bones is going to fulfill you in ways you have never experienced before. And don't let anyone tear you down or discourage you from what you are after. Don't let their doubts and fears get into your head. Those doubts are their problem, not yours. Unless they've been in your shoes, chances are the naysayers are just jealous that you've got the balls to go for it that they don't have. Don't let your own fears discourage you either! As long as you stay focused and clear about the steps it will take to get to your goal, chances are really good that you are going to succeed."

— Hayley Hobson

"It's okay to make mistakes. Mistakes are our friends — they help us to grow. Actually, it is impossible to make a 'mistake' in real terms, since everything that we call a 'mistake' actually brings us benefit. So march ahead with all the power and the fierce urgency of Now. And don't worry about mistakes. Rather, worry about being afraid not to make any."

— Neale Donald Walsch

— Osho
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Your fears have stopped you before, but they need not stop you now. What's the worst that can happen? And if that happened, what would happen then? And if that happened, then what? Now...if you give in to your fears, where will that leave you? Right where you are now? And if that's where you want to be, why is the other option even a little bit exciting to you?"

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"

"Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy."

— Norman Vincent Peale
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Life is rarely as difficult as you think it is, and hardly ever as aggravating as humans are able to make it. How much patience do you have with Life? Are you willing to overcome minor obstacles as you move through your day? Or does anything and everything that does not move in accordance with your wishes cause you annoyance—if not outright frustration? Consider the possibility that the little obstacles in life are not obstacles at all, but stepping stones. Look to see what they offer you in terms of growth, and you'll see their treasure."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Nothing destroys self-worth, self-acceptance and self-love faster than denying what you feel. Without feelings, you would not know where you are in life. Nor would you know what areas you need to work on. Honor your feelings. Allow yourself to feel them."

in "Interesting Quotes"




"Life isn't happening to you; life is responding to you."

— Rhonda Byrne

— don Miguel Ruiz
in "Interesting Quotes"




"One thing: you have to walk, and create the way by your walking; you will not find a ready-made path. It is not so cheap, to reach to the ultimate realization of truth. You will have to create the path by walking yourself; the path is not ready-made, lying there and waiting for you. It is just like the sky: the birds fly, but they don't leave any footprints. You cannot follow them; there are no footprints left behind."

— Osho
in "Interesting Quotes"




"As long as you think that the cause of your problem is out there—as long as you think that anyone or anything is responsible for your suffering—the situation is hopeless. It means that you are forever in the role of victim, that you're suffering in paradise."

— Eckhart Tolle

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When you think a thought of upliftment or abundance or Well-Being you are filled with a feeling of positive emotion. You may trust the way that you feel as the indicator as to which side of this subject (that is really two subjects) you are on. Whether it is the subject of money or lack of it, or health or lack of it, or a relationship or the lack of one—always, when you feel good, you are in the place of attracting that which you are wanting."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"According to energy medicine, we are all living history books. Our bodies contain our histories- every chapter, line and verse of every event and relationship in our lives. As our lives unfold, our biological health becomes a living, breathing biographical statement that conveys our strengths, weaknesses, hopes and fears."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Remember that your thoughts are the primary cause of everything. So when you think a sustained thought it is immediately sent out into the Universe. That thought magnetically attaches itself to the like frequency, and then within seconds sends the reading of that frequency back to you through your feelings. Put another way, your feelings are communication back to you from the Universe, telling you what frequency you are currently on. Your feelings are your frequency feedback mechanism!"

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world. Everyone you meet is your mirror."

in "Interesting Quotes"

"If a person can accept his reality as it is, in that very acceptance all tension disappears. Anguish, anxiety, despair they all simply evaporate. And when there is no anxiety, no tension, no fragmentariness, no division, no schizophrenia then suddenly there is joy, then suddenly there is love, then suddenly there is compassion."

— Osho
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If a patient is focused on illness then they are inadvertently bringing more illness to them through the law of attraction. On the other hand, if the patient focuses on producing health and removes all notion of illness from their thoughts and feelings, then through the law of attraction they must produce health. If there was no healing power within us, nothing could be healed."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"

in "Interesting Quotes"




"Low energy attracts low energy. Low energy thoughts, such as anger, hate, shame, guilt, and fear, weaken you. And they attract more of the same. By changing your inner thoughts to the higher frequencies of love, harmony, kindness, peace, and joy, you'll attract more of the same, and you'll have those higher energies to give away."

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Forget about the consequences of failure. Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success."

— Denis Waitley
in "Interesting Quotes"




"It is nice to let someone who admits an error feel better after doing so...not feel worse. If someone comes to you with an apology, or even just a small oops..., think about what you might say to help them feel okay about their lapse, rather than telling them all the reasons why it really inconvenienced you, or made you look bad, or disserved you. You will yearn for the same grace for another some day."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If what you are thinking doesn't make you feel good, change that thought. Remind yourself that bad cannot bother you unless you are available."

— Mark Nepo
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You have two voices with which you speak: your MindVoice and your SoulVoice. These two voices are also — all the time — speaking to you. Which voice you listen to will determine which voice you speak with. God invites you to listen to, and speak with, your SoulVoice. This will vastly improve your personal communications — to say nothing of your mood."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Taking all the anger and hatred that is standing in your way and replacing it with love is the most healing thing you can do. Fill your soul with love, rather than anger and so many things will change in your life. None of us needs revenge, but we all need love. It is all we really have to give away."

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"What Thoreau is saying is so important to you today. Be willing to dream, and imagine yourself becoming all that you wish to be. If you live from those imaginings, the universe will align with you in bringing all that you wish for—and even more than you imagined when you were living at an ordinary level of consciousness, or what Thoreau calls common hours. Keep in mind the basic axiom—all that now exists was once imagined. It follows then that what you want to exist for you in the future must now be imagined."

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When you really believe that you are worthy of the best, that you deserve the best and that there is enough of the best for you to have plenty, there will be no need for you to hold on to what you have. Allow yourself to imagine what your life would be like if your hands and heart were to receive something better than what you are holding on to right now."

— George Burns
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The person standing on the mountain top did not get there by falling. You have to climb to where you want to go—and you cannot get there by climbing over others. It is about climbing with others, side by side, and even pulling some others up with you. Are you willing to do that? If you are, you'll get to that high place, and others will be happy that you're there—which is what will keep you there."

— Neale Donald Walsch

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"To attract money, you must focus on wealth. It is impossible to bring more money into your life when you are noticing you do not have enough, because that means you are thinking thoughts that you do not have enough. Focus on not enough money, and you will create untold more circumstances of not having enough money. You must focus on the abundance of money to bring that to you."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"

— Bob Proctor

"Just because you're a person of faith doesn't exempt you from difficulties. The enemy may hit you with his best shot, but because your house is built on the rock, his best will never be enough. When the storm is over, you'll come out stronger, increased, promoted, better off than you were before."

— Joel Osteen

"Insights come to you and through you. Wisdom does not flow only one way. You may not have thought of yourself as a source of Divine Wisdom, but you are—and before this very week is out someone will be relying on you for just that. When that moment comes, I am sure you will be ready. If you were not, the moment would not come. Therefore, trust the process—and yourself."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Watch the waves in the ocean. The higher the wave goes, the deeper is the wake that follows it. One moment you are the wave, another moment you are the hollow wake that follows. Enjoy both—dont get addicted to one. Dont say: I would always like to be on the peak. It is not possible. Simply see the fact: it is not possible. It has never happened and it will never happen. It is simply impossible—not in the nature of things. Then what to do? Enjoy the peak while it lasts and then enjoy the valley when it comes. What is wrong with the valley? What is wrong with being low? It is a relaxation. A peak is an excitement, and nobody can exist continuously in an excitement."

— Osho
in "Interesting Quotes"

— Earl Nightingale
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Get the heat and emotion out worry, and put cold, ruthless scrutiny onto the problem, and worry loses its power. When we are worried and filled with apprehension, we become panicky and are likely to see only gloom and failure. There isn't any situation so bad that it won't become a lot better when you think rationally - and spiritually - about it. God gives you the ability to think rationally about things by filling you with peace and faith."

— Norman Vincent Peale
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you hold back on the emotions - if you don't allow yourself to go all the way through them you can never get to being detached, you're too busy being afraid. You're afraid of the pain, you're afraid of the grief. You're afraid of the vulnerability that loving entails. But by throwing yourself into these emotions, by allowing yourself to dive in, all the way, over your head even ,you experience them fully and completely You know what pain is. You know what love is. You know what grief is. And only then can you say, Alright I have experienced that emotion. I recognize that emotion. Now I need to detach from that emotion for a moment."

— Mitch Albom
in "Interesting Quotes"

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"It is time to move into uncharted lands. If you want to do something you have never done before, you have to do something you have never done before. If you want to go somewhere you have never gone before, you have to go somewhere you have never gone before. You cannot do something new by doing old things. If you want your life to change, you have to change your life. So go ahead. It's safe. And it's also...about time."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Begin to think of yourself as a Divine limitless being rather than a person who doesn't have choice when it comes to your thoughts. Think of yourself as an observer, contemplating and selecting thoughts that you choose from that never-ending stream of thoughts on your inner screen, 24/7/365. I'm encouraging you to initiate a habit of choosing thoughts and ideas that support feeling good and powerful, and that elevate you to a higher level of consciousness where your self-concept welcomes your higher self."

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"We are not indebted to anyone in this life. We are accountable to some, responsible for others. We are never, however, obligated to take the weight of another's life on our shoulders. When we do, we become toxically poisoned by the dreaded affliction of O.P.P.: other people's problems."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Life repeats itself mindlessly - unless you become mindful, it will go on repeating like a wheel. Thats why Buddhists call it the wheel of life and death, the wheel of time. It moves like a wheel: birth is followed by death, death is followed by birth; love is followed by hate, hate is followed by love; success is followed by failure, failure is followed by success. Just see! If you can watch just for a few days, you will see a pattern emerging, a wheel pattern. One day, a fine morning, you are feeling so good and so happy, and another day you are so dull, so dead that you start thinking of committing suicide. And just the other day you were so full of life, so blissful that you were feeling thankful to God, that you were in a mood of deep gratefulness, and today there is great complaint and you don't see the point why one should go on living.... And it goes on and on, but you don't see the pattern. Once you see the pattern, you can get out of it."

— Osho

"The reason you have to love You is because it is impossible to feel good if you don't love You. When you feel bad about yourself, you are blocking all the love and all the good that the Universe has for you."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"We all aspire to be, do and have great things. Yet most of us simply aren't creating the results we want. We don't have enough money, romance, success or joy in our lives. But what we need to understand is that greatness exists in all of us. It is simply up to us to pull it out of ourselves. We all have genius. We just need to learn how to apply it."

— Jack Canfield
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Beloveds: I want to offer again, if you feel lost, alone, in a dark place that is calling you, pulling you out of life, please reach out. I have encountered many who suffer the darkness of depression. I have seen some who could not get out of bed, many who could not eat. I recognize that depression wears a heavy, dark spirit that makes even the slightest movement feel impossible. I want to encourage you to make your list now so that if should should be overcome, you can simply reach over and make a call. On the other side of the equation, there are those of us who may know or suspect someone is suffering. To us, I say let us not act like we don't see the suffering. Let us not be stopped by feeling like we are intruding. Let us call and knock and continue to do so until we get a response. My friend Terri Williams wrote a book about her experience called Black Pain: It Just Looks Like We are Not Hurting. Depression is a mental health issue that we cannot afford to ignore. I encourage us all to learn to recognize each others pain. I invite us all to hold on to each other, take care of each other and love each other enough, to trust one another with our pain. Every life is valuable. We all matter. Let us not be fooled into thinking that money, fame or fortune will eliminate our pain. Pain is an equal opportunity oppressor! If you hurt Beloveds, please let someone know. My heart weeps for Robin Williams' family and the countless other families who have lost loved ones to the spirit of depression by their own hand. This need not be! Reach up God will hear your cry! If you can't reach up, reach out — someone will answer."

"Live one day at a time. Keep your attention in present time. Have no expectations. Make no judgements. And give up the need to know why things happen as they do. Give it up!"

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When you send love in response to hate you accomplish one of the most difficult things for anyone. As I look into my conscience I can now honestly say, I have no one who I can call an enemy. Over the course of my life I have been disappointed many times. Some have borrowed and never repaid. Some have forgotten their promises. Some have left me for others. Some have cursed me and spread rumors about me. Some have stolen from me. I send love to them all, mindful of the Buddha's words: We live happily indeed, not hating those who hate us. Among men who hate us we dwell free from hatred. It has been this transformation in my own thinking, perhaps more than anything else, that has allowed me to move out of those low energy problem regions of my life. It is a powerful strategy for raising your spiritual awareness."

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Never follow the crowd in what you do; the crowd has never produced anything of lasting quality, value or beauty."

— Denis Waitley
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Devote yourself to praise - giving thanks for everything and everyone in your life; to prayer - asking for what you need, believing that you can have it; and to surrender - detaching yourself from a specific outcome. I trust that these activities alone will put your life and your mind on its divine course."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Forgiving someone doesn't mean that their behavior was OK. What it does mean is that we're ready to move on. To release the heavy weight. To shape our own life, on our terms, without any unnecessary burdens. Forgiveness is pure freedom — and forgiveness is a choice."

— Dr. Suzanne Gelb
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Let me offer this prayer for all those who are coping with depression, My prayer on this day is that I receive the graces of hope and fortitude during this time in my life. Help me to make it through those moments when I feel like giving up. Hover over me, God, with guidance through my thoughts and through my dreams."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Your sense of inner peace depends on spending some of your life energy in silence to recharge your battery, remove tension and anxiety, and feel closer to all of humanity. Going into the quiet and listening will heal and inspire you."

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When you look into the mirror, you are the only one who can hear your narrators; only you know what those self-judgments are. They take whatever voice and shape you give them, but they are only the expression of something you've already said yes to. You can make the choice to detach yourself from the standards that create an unrealistic image of yourself by knowing that you have to power to say no. When you no longer believe in a self-judgment, it will no longer have any power over you. You can choose to view yourself from a place of acceptance based on the undeniable truth that you are already perfect and complete exactly the way you are right now."

— don Miguel Ruiz Jr.
in "Interesting Quotes"




"No one would ever deliberately attract anything unwanted. Without the knowledge of The Secret, it is easy to see how some unwanted things may have occurred in your life or other people's lives. It simply came from a lack of awareness of the great creative power of our thoughts."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself."

— Brian Tracy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"It is only This Moment that counts, This Moment that matters. Dwelling on anything else is pointless. Yesterday is gone, if not forgotten, and tomorrow is not yet here, so why waste precious time and mental energy focused on either? What is going on right now? That is the question. And what can you do Right Now to make Now better? Make each Now better and the future will take care of itself, while the past will not matter."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Nothing can happen for you in the outside world until you create the energy to attract it to and through your inside world. Developing a strong inner life can create a better outer life."

"Three-fourths of the people you will ever meet are hungering and thirsting for sympathy. Give it to them, and they will love you."

— Dale Carnegie
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The moment you become miserable you are closed to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing. The moment you start clinging to things, you have missed the target—you have missed. Because things are not the target, you, your innermost being, is the target—not a beautiful house, but a beautiful you; not much money, but a rich you; not many things, but an open being, available to millions of things."

— Osho
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You must earn what you have. Life does not give you anything. You must give in order to get. You must stand up to the very thing that challenges you, look it in the face, get clear about your intention, order your thoughts and your life, and proceed without fear or hesitation. Life is not unfair. Along the way, you will always find bits of information and support to guide you to purpose."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Embrace what you have discovered through all of your exploring. Accept as your truth the highest ideas about yourself, about God, and about others that your Soul has sent you - and is sending you now. You have called forth these ideas through your yearning, through your willing, and through your exploring. Do not reject them because they seem too good to be true."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The more credit you give away, the more will come back to you. The more you help others, the more they will want to help you."

— Brian Tracy

"If you have held thoughts in the past that the only way money can come to you is through your job, then let that go immediately. Can you appreciate that as you continue to think that, it must be your experience? Such thoughts do not serve you."

— Rhonda Byrne

"You always own the option of having no opinion. There is never any need to get worked up or to trouble your soul about things you can't control. These things are not asking to be judged by you. Leave them alone."

"Just let go. Let go of how you thought your life should be, and embrace the life that is trying to work its way into your consciousness."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"We don't have to take rejection as a reflection of our self-worth. If somebody who is important (or even someone unimportant) to you rejects you or your choices, you are still real, and you are still worth every bit as much as you would be if you had not been rejected. Feel any feelings that go with rejection; talk about your thoughts; but don't forfeit your self-esteem to another's disapproval or rejection of who you are or what you have done. Even if the most important person in your world rejects you, you are still real, and you are still okay. If you have done something inappropriate or you need to solve a problem or change a behavior, then take appropriate steps to take care of yourself. But don't reject yourself, and don't give so much power to other people's rejection of you. It isn't necessary."

— Melody Beattie
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Don't try to recreate peak experiences. Instead, just accept them as the gift that they are, and don't beat up on yourself for not being able to stay there. Because if you stayed there, they wouldn't be peak experiences. They would be normal, every day in time hum drum boring, experiences. So, savor the peak experiences and compliment yourself upon your achieving of them, and expect more of them, and leave everything else out of the equation."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You are not alone. Within You is the infinite creative power and presence, guiding you, loving you, and waiting to give you anything and everything you choose. You have access to all that is, to all that has ever been, and all that will ever be - and it is the creative power within You."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You can train your mind to respond to 'incoming data' without fear. All you have to do is remember who you are, and that there is never a moment when you do not have God on your side. So step into tomorrow without apprehension, and do not waste your time with worry. Rather, fill your time with creative thinking about how to move forward, no matter what happens."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"I AM are two of the most powerful words you can use to begin a sentence. The important thing is what words you use to finish that sentence. Anytime you start a sentence with I am, you are creating what you are and what you want to be. At the same time, you are also showing whether or not you are connected to the energy of God inside of you. When you choose to say, I am happy, I am kind, I am perfect, you help the light of God inside you to grow and shine. Try saying some I am sentences and see how the different words you choose make you feel."

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Our differences sometimes make agreement difficult to achieve. But our differences should never make us feel wrong, nor lead us to believe that what others believe is wrong. Open your heart. Be willing to embrace different points of view, different habits, different opinions and the differences that exist between yourself and others."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer."

"Your own body is a manifestation of God, and if you honor your body, everything will change for you. Practice giving love to every part of your body. This will plant seeds of love in your mind, and when they grow, you will love, honor, and respect your body immensely."

— don Miguel Ruiz
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Change is the natural order of things and not something that you benefit from resisting. We live in a time of enormous upheaval on a global scale, and more and more people are seeing huge changes in their personal lives as well. It is the nature of the world in which we live. Love with grace in the face of these changes, for every change brings you an incredible opportunity for growth. Breathe, relax, and know with confidence that all things will work out for you."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There comes a point in life when you get tired of feeling, doing and looking bad. Take responsibility for what ails you. Find out what you are doing that is not good for you and stop."

"Life will not, it will never, make sense to your mind. The secret is to see life from the soul's perspective; to add to the mind's experience the soul's wisdom, awareness, and total knowing."

— Neale Donald Walsch

"Each day, focus your attention on what you want. Each day, take one step that will bring you closer to it. ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE! The key is to identify it, claim it for yourself, and believe that you are worthy to have it."

"Through gratitude you create new forks in the road that didn't exist before. Gratitude releases a force within us and outside of us that can alter our journey and the forks that appear along the way. The more you can be grateful for, the more forks you can create."

— Don Shapiro

"That person who is the hardest to forgive is the one who can teach you the greatest lessons. When you love yourself enough to rise above the old situation, then understanding and forgiveness will be easy. And you'll be free."

— Miguel Ruiz
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Each and every component that makes up your life experience is drawn to you by the powerful Law of Attraction's response to the thoughts you think and the story you tell about your life. Your money and financial assets; your body's state of wellness, clarity, flexibility, size, and shape; your work environment, how you are treated, work satisfaction and rewards indeed, the very happiness of your life experience in general is all happening because of the story that you tell."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When dealing with a difficult person, all that matters from a spiritual standpoint is how you react and treat the person. It's not about getting the other person to change or agree with you. Your spiritual growth is all about the way that YOU deal with the relationship, the person, and the situation. Even if the situation would justify you acting harshly, resist this temptation. Ask for heaven to purify and uplift your thoughts and feelings so that everything you do and say is aligned with Divine Love. This is the path and purpose of the lightworker. This is why you are here."

— Doreen Virtue
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Placing the blame or judgment on someone else leaves you powerless to change your experience. Taking responsibility for your beliefs and judgments gives you the power to change them."

— Byron Katie
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Harboring anger and hatred toward anyone guarantees that you remain in low energy fields where problems will continue to crop up repeatedly in your life. I suggest that you examine every relationship in which you feel judgmental thoughts of anger and hatred. Replace those thoughts with energies of acceptance, kindness, cheerfulness, and love. You will have to make a personal commitment to, first of all, notice what you are feeling and then exercise your ability to choose to send love. When your heart becomes pure, your enemy becomes your friend, or even more significantly, your teacher. Your worst enemies are your greatest teachers because they allow you to examine the emotions of anger and revenge and then to transcend them. They give you the exact tools you need to elevate yourself to the spiritual energies that provide your solutions."

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Do you believe yourself to be a victim? Victim consciousness tends to be self-perpetuating. If you believe yourself to be a victim, you vibrate at the frequency of victim and energetically draw to yourself experiences that will confirm in your mind that you are a victim. One key to breaking this cycle is to release blame, for blame places you vibrationally at the frequency of victim consciousness. We may more easily release blame when we take responsibility for having agreed to our life plans, and the personal stories of pre-birth planning in Your Soul's Gift are intended to help you do just that.. Such self-responsibility is the fertile ground in which expanded consciousness and self-knowledge blossom."

— Robert Schwartz
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There comes a point in time when you must know that everything you have already given or done is enough. This is not something anyone else can tell you. You must know. Giving without receiving doesn't prove anything except that you know how to be taken advantage of."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"It would be very beneficial to take 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening - more if you can find it - to be quiet with your Holy Self. Your consciousness can be dramatically expanded over a relatively short period of time with true dedication to such a gentle discipline."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Always go with the choice that scares you the most, because that's the one that is going to require the most from you."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Every individual undertaking, every individual thought, word, or action which leads to the transformation of the Self and to the lifting of any other being, is of extraordinary importance. It is not necessary to move mountains to move mountains. It is necessary only to move pebbles."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"It is not the world that distresses you but how you relate to it."

— Swami Parthasarathy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"We would like you to release the word achieve or earn from your vocabulary and from your understanding, altogether; and we would like you to replace those words with the word allow. You're wanting to allow your Well-being, not achieve it. It's not something that you need to earn. All you have to do is decide what it is you would like to experience, and then allow it in order to achieve it. It isn't something you have to struggle for or try for. You are all worthy beings. You are deserving of this Well-being."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Once you have started seeing the beauty of life, ugliness starts disappearing. If you start looking at life with joy, sadness starts disappearing. You cannot have heaven and hell together, you can have only one. It is your choice."

"Always give without remembering and always receive without forgetting."

— Brian Tracy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"As you look around the world, you probably see many things you would like to change, but don't forget that God works from the inside out. You must first look within yourself to eliminate the fear, the anger, the imbalance in your life. Then and only then can you move forward to create peacefully and powerfully the changes needed in the world."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you are willing, God is ready. Here's what willingness looks like: first, you have to be open. Then, you have to be ready. Finally, you have to be determined, and committed to action. Anyone else reading this right now might wonder what's even being discussed. But you're not wondering. You know exactly what the situation is that we're talking about here."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you."

— Brian Tracy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When you're enthusiastic, nothing seems difficult. When you have passion, there are no risks: family dramas become meaningless, money isn't an issue, you know that you have the strength and the smarts, and the rules laid down by others have no bearing on you whatsoever. That's because you're answering your calling—and the you who is doing the answering is the highest part of you, or the God within."

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Beloveds, you are fine, just the way you are! Perfect in your imperfection! You are divine! Growing brighter and more brilliant each day, you can accept the truth of who you are."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"All the problems you face today are going to go away, unless you worry them to stay. Problems like worry. Worry is a magnet for them. If you just let it be, the current worrisome condition will not even be part of your life a short time from now. If you worry enough about it, however, you can be sure that it will stick around. So, just do your best around all this...then turn it over to God."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Do not be afraid to experience your emotions; they are the path to your soul. Emotions erupt to remind us we are alive, that we are human. And to let us know we are growing. Trust yourself enough to feel what you feel."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When we heal ourselves, we heal the world."

— Mark Nepo
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you are feeling really good, negative thoughts and words are not on the same frequency as you, so you don't even have to try to stop them because all good things just pour out of you. So, the fastest way to be more positive is to watch how you are feeling, rather than trying to monitor your thoughts and words. You are the only one who has control of your feelings, so start to get in touch with how you are feeling, and then deliberately focus on intensifying a good feeling within you."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"It is time to stop hiding something from someone. This is the day of your liberation. Whatever you are keeping from another is not worth withholding. It will eat away at you if you are not careful. It can do more harm to you than telling ever would. Speak your truth, but soothe your words with peace. Reveal what you've been keeping secret. In the end, transparency is best, although it may feel uncomfortable for a while."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"We cannot expect to be in control of the circumstances in our lives when we cannot control our minds for five minutes. Meditation is the daily minimum requirement that will prevent us from breaking down and falling apart at the most inopportune moments. It is the art of listening. It is a practice which enables us to tune in and fine-tune the key areas of our lives: the mind and the spirit."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"I forgive myself for not being perfect. I am living the very best way I know how."

— Louise Hay
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Forgiveness is the choice to see people as they are now. When we're mad at people, we're angry because of something they said or did before this moment. By letting go of the past, we make room for miracles to replace our grievances."

— Marianne Williamson
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You need not be concerned about money. Be concerned, instead, about joy. How much joy are you bringing to this moment? The joy you experience will be the joy you bring. If you think that joy has anything to do with money, you do not understand what you are doing here."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When you develop yourself to the point where your belief in yourself is so strong that you know you can accomplish anything you put your mind to, your future will be unlimited."

— Brian Tracy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices."

— Elizabeth Gilbert
in "Interesting Quotes"




"My grandma always said, Trouble is what God uses to prepare you for better things! If you have trouble in your life, you are in a valley. If you are in a valley, you are being prepared for something bigger, better, greater; something you probably could not handle now."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Law of Attraction says, That which is like unto itself is drawn. Vibrations are always matched. So, as you experience the contrast which inspires the new desire, this new desire, whether it is a strong one or a soft one, is summoning unto itself proportionately. And as it summons, it is always answered. It is the basis of our Universe: When it is asked, it is always given. Humans think they are asking with their words, or even with their action — and sometimes you are — but the Universe is not responding to your words or your action. The Universe is responding to your vibrational calling."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The inner light actually comes from the soul; it is already inside us. The moment we can have free access to our soul, we will see that this light is coming to the fore to permeate our whole outer existence."

— Sri Chinmoy

"You do get what you think about most of the time, and if you continually think in terms of how you can achieve it, and the specific actions you can take to move toward it, you are much more likely to be successful in the end."

— Brian Tracy

"Today I will not wait for someone to come to my aid. I'm not helpless. Although help may come, I'm my own rescuer. My relationships will dramatically improve when I stop rescuing others and stop expecting others to rescue me."

— Melody Beattie
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Yearning for a new way will not produce it. Only ending the old way can do that. You cannot hold onto the old all the while declaring that you want something new. The old will defy the new; the old will deny the new; the old will decry the new. There is only one way to bring in the new. You must make room for it."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"I found every single successful person I've ever spoken to had a turning point. The turning point was when they made a clear, specific unequivocal decision that they were not going to live like this anymore; they were going to achieve success."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"We must constantly check with ourselves: am I committed to feeling good, or am I committed to growing? Growth does not always feel good, and feeling good does not always provide growth."

"Too many people spend money they haven't earned, to buy things they don't want, to impress people they don't like."

— Will Rogers
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes."

— Charles R. Swindoll
in "Interesting Quotes"




"In the entire history of the universe, let alone in your own history, there has never been another day just like today, and there will never be another just like it again. Today is the point to which all your yesterdays have been leading since the hour of your birth. It is the point from which all your tomorrows will proceed until the hour of your death. If you were aware of how precious today is, you could hardly live through it. Unless you are aware of how precious it is, you can hardly be said to be living at all."

— Frederick Buechner
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The biggest enemies we have to overcome on the road to success are not a lack of ability and a lack of opportunity but fears of failure and rejection and the doubts that they trigger."

— Brian Tracy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Many of us were taught to put ourselves last, and as a consequence we attracted feelings of being unworthy and undeserving. As those feelings lodged within us, we continued to attract more life situations that had us feel more unworthy and not enough. You must change that thinking."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Complaining about where we are or what we have is the best way to ensure things stay exactly as they are. We will not attract better or do more until we respect and appreciate what we have now."

"Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads."

— Erica Jong
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You need not leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. You need not even listen, simply wait, just learn to become quiet, and still, and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked. It has no choice; it will roll in ecstasy at your feet."

— Kafka
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Today I will not be overwhelmed by panic. Panic will take my mind off my goals. It's normal to feel panic, but I simply feel it and let it go. I can get back on track by treading water until I regain my composure. I relax and know that all is well."

— Melody Beattie
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When you learn, teach, when you get, give."

— Maya Angelou
in "Interesting Quotes"




"We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit."

in "Interesting Quotes"




"My Dear, I am writing this to remind you of your 'essence beauty.' This is the part of you that has nothing to do with age, occupation, weight, history, or pain. This is the soft, untouched, indelible you. You can love yourself in this moment, no matter what you have, or haven't done or been. See past any masks, devices, or inventions that obscure your essence. Remember your true purpose, which is only Love. If you cannot see or feel love, lie down now and cry; it will cleanse your vision and free your heart. I love you; I am you."

— SARK
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Today I will ask my Higher Power to send me His best, and I will trust that all that is good will come to me. I will remember that sometimes we don't get what we want because God has something infinitely better in store for us."

— Melody Beattie
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Today I will do something just for the fun of it. I will find something to do that's just for me, and I won't worry about what I should be doing. I will learn how to make myself feel good and enjoy life to the fullest."

— Melody Beattie
in "Interesting Quotes"




"I seem to be totally in a world of my own one that's joyful, full of exciting, unlimited potentialities and discoveries that I can make on my own. No matter how hard anyone tries to make me be gloomy, they can never succeed because I came here from a Divine light, and there is nothing anyone can do to put out that light. This is who I am a piece of God who hasn't forgotten that God is love. As am I."

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There is a solution. There is. But you must keep going to find it. You cannot stop, you cannot give up. This is about more than just patience. This is about more than just persistence. This is about absolute knowing that God is on your side. When you know this, you never give up...and the sense of struggle goes away. You simply keep moving forward knowing that, in the end, all will work out. And that along the way there will be great insights and wonderful remembering."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Working hard is good, but getting things done is better. Look to see how you are spending your day. Are you accomplishing anything? Is it anything that matters? You have only so much time here. Don't waste it. If you are really putting in a lot of effort, but not getting much done that matters, take a look at that. That's all I'm saying. Take a look."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Often, when you are on the spiritual path, there is a war that goes on between the person you once were and the person you are becoming. The old you is comfortable with the way things were and are. The new you views problems as challenges, knowing that with every problem comes the solution."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure."

— Bill Cosby
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others."

— Mahatma Gandhi
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Why dream? Life is a difficult assignment. We are fragile creatures, expected to function at high rates of speed, and asked to accomplish great and small things each day. These daily activities take enormous amounts of energy. Most things are out of our control. We are surrounded by danger, frustration, grief, and insanity as well as love, hope, ecstasy, and wonder. Being fully human is an exercise in humility, suffering, grace, and great humor. Things and people all around us die, get broken, or are lost. There is no safety or guarantees. The way to accomplish the assignment of truly living is to engage fully, richly, and deeply in the living of your dreams. We are made to dream and to live those dreams."

— SARK
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There is so much about my fate that I cannot control, but other things do fall under the jurisdiction. I can decide how I spend my time, whom I interact with, whom I share my body and life and money and energy with. I can select what I can read and eat and study. I can choose how I'm going to regard unfortunate circumstances in my life-whether I will see them as curses or opportunities. I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak to others. And most of all, I can choose my thoughts."

— Elizabeth Gilbert
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There are several kinds of love. One is a selfish, mean, grasping, egotistical thing which uses love for self-importance. This is the ugly and crippling kind. The other is an outpouring of everything good in you of kindness and consideration and respect not only the social respect of manners but the greater respect which is recognition of another person as unique and valuable. The first kind can make you sick and small and weak but the second can release in you strength, and courage and goodness and even wisdom you didn't know you had."

— John Steinbeck
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you put off everything till you're sure of it, you'll never get anything done."

— Norman Vincent Peale
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When you can't figure out how to make sense out of nonsense, stop trying. Just keep breathing. Sooner or later it will become clear."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"All change is from the inner to the outer. All change begins in the self-concept. You must become the person you want to be on the inside before you see the appearance of this person on the outside."

— Brian Tracy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Everyone has this giant, luminous being that is their true self... Everyone is a sleeping giant, so to speak, waiting to hear the call, waiting to surrender to it, waiting to act on it. We've gotten caught up in thinking we are what we look like, the physical, the exterior. We think we're the lamp shade. We've forgotten that we are the light—the electricity and the luminosity that lights up every man, woman, and child. The light is who we truly are."

— Michael Beckwith
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss, and they open doors to you. Follow your bliss and don't be afraid and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be."

— Joseph Campbell
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Someone is looking up to you now, preparing to follow your example. Let this guide your next choice. We often think that we are operating in a vacuum, that no one is watching us, that our actions are mostly private. Yet, what if you knew that your every thought, word, and deed today was going to be imitated by one who admires you? Can you feel good about what you are demonstrating? Wonderful. If your answer is yes, wonderful!"

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"What you are thinking now is creating your future life. You create your life with your thoughts. Because you are always thinking, you are always creating. What you think about the most or focus on the most, is what will appear as your life."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Daring enthusiasm and abiding cheerfulness can accomplish everything on earth without fail."

— Sri Chinmoy

"There is no risk for you out here on the leading edge, ever. And when you come to understand the true nature of Well-being in which you have come forth—then you can relax and begin to enjoy this magnificent adventure which is your creative life experience. We are not here to guide the specifics of that which you choose. You get to choose that, and you can't get it wrong. We are here to assist you—only to assist you—in finding vibrational harmony with your desire; knowing that when you find vibrational harmony with your desire, you are, in this moment, a joyful Being. And that is our dominant wish for you."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Beneath all the pain, the disappointment, the resentment and fear, there is love. Celebrate the love that you buried in your heart. There is a place within you in which you can find everything you need or thought you lost or wished that you had more of. Go there now! Be there now! Rest there now!"

— Iyanla Vanzant

— Deepak Chopra
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You are where you are or ever will be is up to you. You are where you are today because that is where you have chosen to be. You are always free to choose your actions, or inactions, and your life today is the sum total of your choices, good and bad. If you want your future to be different, you have to make better choices. "

— Brian Tracy

"The Universe is essentially a friendly place. So friendly, in fact, that it will give you exactly what you expect it to. Isn't that wonderful? Of course, it depends on what you expect."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Everything is valid and everything is truthful, because Law of Attraction lets everything be. The question is not whether it's right or wrong, whether their approach is right or wrong, or whether my approach is right or wrong. The question is: Does their approach feel good to me? And if it doesn't, then I choose a different approach."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There is an old saying Tomorrow is not promised. If that is the case, why not step into NOW. Right here, right now there is a miracle waiting to happen. Step into the present moment in which the pain, shame, anger, guilt of the past are not present. Step into this moment in time in all of its fullness, and declare, This is GOOD!"

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There is more to life than meets the eye. Never allow what you are looking at to determine what you believe. Never allow what you can see with your eyes to lure you into the belief that there is nothing more. Always allow your spiritual eyes to take you beneath the surface."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing."

— Denis Waitley
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it."

"Just one smile immensely increases the beauty of the universe."

— Sri Chinmoy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"It is okay to want to make lots of plans, but it is also okay to make lots of room for that which planning can never produce. It's sometimes nice to get everything decided, settled, and arranged. But you may want to leave room in your life for spontaneity. Some of the best choices are made on the fly. Some of the best outcomes are created by not needing anything specific to happen. Who and how and why and when and where to love often falls into this category."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The Law of Belief says that whatever you believe, with feeling, becomes reality. The more intensely that you believe something to be true, the more likely it is that it will be true for you. If you really believe something, you cannot imagine it to be otherwise. Your beliefs give you a form of tunnel vision. They edit out or cause you to ignore incoming information that is inconsistent with what you have decided to believe."

— Brian Tracy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Nothing is more debilitating than to care about something you can't do anything about. And you can't do anything about your adult children. You can want better for them, and maybe even begin to provide something for them, but in the long run, you cannot do anything about someone else's vibration other than hold them in the best light you can, mentally, and then project that to them. And sometimes, distance makes that much more possible than being up close to them."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Hope is sweet. Hope is illumining. Hope is fulfilling. Hope can be everlasting. Therefore, do not give up hope, even in the sunset of your life."

— Sri Chinmoy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Winning an argument is never the goal of a true spiritual master. Winning someone's heart is. The setting aside of one's integrity is not required to win someone's heart, but the setting aside of one's anger may be. It is possible to make a point without making an enemy. It is possible to be right without being righteous. Debating does not have to be debasing. If there is someone with whom you are disagreeing this day, would it not be wonderful of you to disagree without being disagreeable?"

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you have zest and enthusiasm you attract zest and enthusiasm. Life does give back in kind."

— Norman Vincent Peale
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Make a decision and then make the decision right. Line up your Energy with it. In most cases, it doesn't really matter what you decide. Just decide. There are endless options that would serve you enormously well, and all or any one of them is better than no decision."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Dear God, thank you for reminding me that while I have made mistakes, I have learned from them things I need to know about myself. Thank you for showing me that when I complain about what is missing, I miss the opportunity to be grateful for what I have. Thank you for reminding me that I am worthy of love, I am entitled to happiness and that you want me to have both."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There is a real magic in enthusiasm. It spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment."

— Norman Vincent Peale
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There are two ways to illumine anger. One way is to enlarge your heart. If you have been wronged, use your power of identification. Feel that it is you yourself, or an extended part of your own consciousness, that has done the wrong thing. The sooner you can rid yourself of the idea that somebody else has done something to you, the better off you will be. The second way is to think of perfecting yourself. When you stop thinking of perfecting others and only care for your own aspiration, you will be liberated from anger. Instead of looking around to see who is obstructing you or standing in your way, just pay all attention to your own self-discovery. When you have discovered your true self, you will see that there is nobody imperfect on earth. Everybody is perfect in you."

— Sri Chinmoy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There are no happier people on this planet than those who decide that they want something, define what they want, get hold of the feeling of it even before it's manifestation and then joyously watch the unfolding as, piece by piece by piece, it begins to unfold. That's the feeling of your hands in the clay."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"To be truly happy, you need a clear sense of direction. You need a commitment to something bigger and more important than yourself. You need to feel that your life stands for something, that you are somehow making a valuable contribution to your world."

— Brian Tracy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Spirituality is not about what you know. It is about growing, deepening, evolving, and becoming a living reflection of your spiritual identity."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can - there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did."

— Sarah Caldwell
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you can't believe in miracles, then believe in yourself. When you want something bad enough, let that drive push you to make it happen. Sometimes you'll run into brick walls that are put there to test you. Find a way around them and stay focused on your dream. Where there's a will, there's a way."

— Isabel Lopez
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Remember, there are no mistakes, only lessons. Love yourself, trust your choices, and everything is possible."

— Cherie Carter-Scott
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The world doesn't need more people playing small. It's time to stop hiding out and start stepping out. It's time to stop needing and start leading. It's time to start sharing your gifts instead of hoarding them or pretending they don't exist. It's time you started playing the game of life in a BIG way."

— T. Harv Eker
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The most important key to achieving great success is to decide upon your goal and launch, get started, take action, move."

— Brian Tracy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The only person whose respect you need is your own."

— Alan Cohen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Have you doubted your progress, regretted your choices, put yourself down? Remember that you are doing just fine. Remind yourself right now that no matter what it looks like, you are doing the best you can. And getting better. Encourage yourself, support yourself, and celebrate every little thing about yourself."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Keeping things inside does not make them any better. In fact, holding on to secret fears makes them seem a lot worse than they probably are. When you keep things on the inside, the weight of it all can hold you down."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Nothing is more debilitating than to care about something you can't do anything about. And you can't do anything about your adult children. You can want better for them, and maybe even begin to provide something for them, but in the long run, you cannot do anything about someone else's vibration other than hold them in the best light you can, mentally, and then project that to them. And sometimes, distance makes that much more possible than being up close to them."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Why? is the most useless question in the universe. The only question with any meaning is What? Asking Why is this happening? can only disempower you. Asking What do I want to make of this? does exactly the opposite. Here is a great secret: the Why of anything is to produce the What of everything."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you paint in your mind a picture of bright and happy expectations, you put yourself into a condition conducive to your goal."

— Norman Vincent Peale
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Tonight, before you fall asleep, intend that tomorrow is going to be wonderful. Intend that it is going to be the best day of your life. Intend that it is going to be filled with joy. Intend that one good thing after another is coming to you. Then, when you wake in the morning, BEFORE you get out of bed, again repeat your intentions for the day. You will begin to create your life deliberately, and you will experience the power of your intention to create the life you want."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Make a decision and then make the decision right. Line up your Energy with it. In most cases, it doesn't really matter what you decide. Just decide. There are endless options that would serve you enormously well, and all or any one of them is better than no decision."

in "Interesting Quotes"




"The single notion - that we - create our realities - is a truth that will inevitably cause us to rethink every one of our actions, both at the individual level and at the level of global interaction. We have entered a new cycle of life. In spite of the fact that we are being forced through this passage way via the rout of personal and global crisis, we are nonetheless heading toward a time in which we must learn to merge our energies as a people and as nations in order to heal the impending disasters on this planet. The truth is that without the merger of our intelligence, resources and cooperation, none of us will survive the consequences that await us. The message of cooperation and co-creation is remarkably clear."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Be patient when it seems things are not going right and may never be right again. Accept that what is yours will come to you in the right way at just the right moment."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If failure has the strength to turn your life into bitterness itself, then patience has the strength to turn your life into the sweetest joy. Do not surrender to fate after a single failure. Failure, at most, precedes success."

— Sri Chinmoy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You can put your mind in order by focusing on one thing at a time. You can put your environment in order by clearing out the old and useless things that are taking up space. You can put your spirit in order by replacing fearful, doubtful, angry thoughts with thoughts about the grace of God."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Good health is not the absence of symptoms, it is the presence of peace. Do not confuse physical vibrance with spiritual vitality. You are not your body. Your body is simply a tool. A magnificent tool, for sure, but nothing more than that. As with all tools, your body will from time to time need repair. And one day it will wear down completely. Your soul will do neither. Not now, not ever. Listen, therefore, to the whispers of the soul, not the cries of the body."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Not to give up under any circumstances should be the motto of our life: we shall try again and again, and we are bound to succeed. There will be obstacles, but we have to defy them. So do not give up, do not give up! Continue, continue! The goal is ahead of you. If you do not give up, you are bound to reach your destined goal."

— Sri Chinmoy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Doors may close, but there are always, other, unlimited number of doors new opportunities. The world is full of opportunities, if we could only see them. The Infinite Power is boundless, and so the possibilities are without number."

— Brian Tracy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"By choosing better-feeling thoughts and by speaking more of what you do want and less of what you do not want, you will gently tune yourself to the vibrational frequency of your Broader Perspective. To see your world through the eyes of Source is truly the most spectacular view of life, for from that vibrational vantage point, you are in alignment with—and therefore in the process of attracting—only what you would consider to be the very best of your world."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"No matter who you are and what you think you know or do not know, life will teach you to honor and respect balance. There must be discords in order to achieve harmony. There must be darkness that propels us into light. It is the frigid cold in winter that teaches us to appreciate the warmth."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Nothing has to happen immediately, this minute, or right now. It's okay to pause for just a moment. Just take a breath. Then go quietly inside. Ask Life Itself to lead you to your best outcome."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Feel appreciation for those who provide examples of Well-being. How would you know that prosperity was possible if there wasn't some evidence of prosperity around you? It's all part of this contrast that helps you to sharpen your desire."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"What you ask for, you get. What you see, you are. What you give, you get back, someday, somehow, sooner or later."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Creativity is not something you wait for. It is something that waits for you. You must decide to be creative, not wait to be. You must challenge yourself. Pick up the brush. Grab hold of the camera. Turn on the computer. Start cooking the meal. Get to the workplace early. Propose the solution. Advance the idea. Become the answer. How do you suppose these very words were written by me? Do you think I have time to wait for an inspiration? I must be the inspiration. And so must you."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The more you lose yourself in something bigger than yourself, the more energy you will have."

"Your job isn't to judge. Your job isn't to figure out if someone deserves something or decide who is right or wrong. Your job is to lift the fallen, restore the broken, and heal the hurting."

— Joel Osteen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You set the standards for how you will be treated. People will treat you the exact way you treat yourself. So be good to you. Take time for yourself. Rest. Play. Shower yourself with affection, support, and gifts. Don't be afraid to be unavailable. Train yourself to know when to say no."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Unless and until we have peace deep within us, we can never hope to have peace in the outer world. You and I create the world by the vibrations that we offer to it. If we can invoke peace and then offer it to somebody else, we will see how peace expands from one to two persons, and gradually to the world at large. Peace will come about in the world from the perfection of individuals. If you have peace, I have peace, he has peace, and she has peace, then automatically universal peace will dawn."

— Sri Chinmoy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you can't do anything about it then let it go. Don't be a prisoner to things you can't change."

"Rise up in faith and declare that this is your time. Don't settle where you are. Don't let excuses hold you back. Today, take steps of faith to pursue new opportunities and get rid of wrong mindsets."

— Joel Osteen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you think life is hard and a struggle, by the law of attraction you must experience life as hard and a struggle. Change your thinking to what you want, and shout to the Universe, Life is so easy for me! Life is so good to me! Everything works out brilliantly for me every day!"

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you really want to live your life to the fullest and realize your greatest potential, you must be willing to run the risk of making some people mad. People may not like what you do, people may not like how you do it, but these people are not living your life. You are!"

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Watch your manner of speech if you wish to develop a peaceful state of mind. Start each day by affirming peaceful, contented and happy attitudes and your days will tend to be pleasant and successful."

— Norman Vincent Peale
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Expectation indicates the juncture between where you are and where you want to be. Where you want to be is your desire, and where you are is your Set-point or habit of thought. And, somewhere in there, is what we would call expectation. Expectation, whether it is wanted or unwanted, is a powerful point of attraction. Your expectation is always what you believe. But the word expectation does imply more what you are wanting than what you are not wanting. It is a more positive word than it is a negative word. But of course, you could expect negatively—and whatever you expect, you will get!"

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Your creator etched a purpose into your being. You have been born to fulfill that purpose in a way that only you can."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Caution is natural, but fear is not. Do not give in to fear, yet do not abandon caution. It is a balancing act. Caution is what causes you to look both ways before crossing the street. Fear is what keeps you frozen on the curb forever. You know the difference. You can feel it. If you're stuck right now, you're probably into fear. Get out of there. You've already looked both ways. Now cross the street, for heaven sake. The cars have long since gone. The coast is clear. Your only obstacle now is your own mind."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Everything in the Universe, including you, your soul, everyone else, and every soul, participates in a continual unfolding of potential."

— Gary Zukav
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Isn't it great to know that you cannot control your world from the outside? To try and control things on the outside feels impossible because it would take so much work, and in fact it is impossible according to the law of attraction. To change your world all you have to do is manage your thoughts and feelings on the inside of you, and then your whole world changes."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Many of us have a need to be right. We then set out to make ourselves right by making someone else wrong. We must get right with ourselves. Once we do, we will have so much to do, we will not have time to keep track of who is wrong."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Getting down on yourself is not the answer. Why would you do to you what God would never do to you? The few things you do not get right (whatever that is) cannot compare to the things at which you excel. Do you know that? You are kind, you are caring, you are generous, you are sensitive, you are compassionate, you are forgiving, you are more accepting than you know, and more loving than you will give yourself credit for."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop the picture... Do not build up obstacles in your imagination."

— Norman Vincent Peale
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all."

— Norman Vincent Peale
in "Interesting Quotes"




"As you practice your more positive, better-feeling story, in time your pleasure will become the dominant vibration within you, and then as you couple your pleasure with your means of earning, the two will blend perfectly and enhance each other. There is no better way to earn money than to do the things that you love to do. Money can flow into your experience through endless avenues. It is not the choice of the craft that limits the money that flows—but only your attitude toward money."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Beliefs about aging are all in our minds, so release those thoughts from your consciousness. Focus on health and eternal youth."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The struggle ends when the gratitude begins. The search is over when the finding starts. And the finding is not a finding at all, but a creating. You cannot find what you have been struggling for, but you can create it. And the jump-start of creation is gratitude. Thank you, God, for helping me to know that all that I seek is coming to me now. Thank you, God, for allowing me to feel, right now, the peace that comes with gratitude for what is, replacing the yearning for what is not. Thank you for bringing me the understanding that from the isness comes all that is now not, but will surely be."

— Neale Donald Walsch

— Scott Adams
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You will have a number of opportunities in the days just ahead to be a vehicle of happiness and joy for another. Step right into that. Be the source of that. As you bring others to a smile, so, too, will you bring yourself. The method is foolproof. "

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"How may I serve? Asking this question can turn your life around. Thinking of others first—reaching out to them despite how it might inconvenience you—causes you to feel joy. This gift of feeling good (or feeling God) within comes from serving and surrendering rather than asking and demanding."

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Happiness is strange; it comes when you are not seeking it. When you are not making an effort to be happy, then unexpectedly, mysteriously, happiness is there, born of purity, of a loveliness of being."

— Jiddu Krishnamurti
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Mixed messages confuse the universe, making it almost impossible for the forces of good to work on your behalf. Before you can effectively create change in your life, you must believe you are worthy to have and feel you have a right to have a better experience."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You cannot judge the value of a life by its quantity. It is by the joy that you are feeling. The more joyful you are, the longer you live. Let yourself relax and breathe and be free and be joyous, and romp. The optimum physical life experience is to have plenty of things that stimulate you to desire, and an awareness of the way you feel, so you're reaching for thoughts that feel good—so you're wide open, so you're tuned in, tapped in, and turned on. We promise you, the timing of your death is always chosen by you."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You must be willing to release worn-out thoughts, habits, and situations in order to receive and put to use the information Spirit will bring to you. Be patient and be open to receive the guidance that will support your spiritual growth."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The goodness in your life does not come to you from someone else. When you see this, you will be free. There is no reason and no need to play up to another, or to try to remain in their good graces. Remain in your own, by not betraying yourself. Simply speak your truth, with gentleness and love. And have courage, for what you seek is not outside of you. It is not a gift from another person. It is yours — to give, not to acquire. Let no one, therefore, hold you hostage. Not your partner, not your boss, not your family...and certainly not your God."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Be daring! Be bold! Call the things you desire into being so that your life will come into alignment with your greatest expectations. Focus on and affirm the experiences you desire."

— Orison Swett Marden
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Being true to yourself means living in truth with each person in your life. It means refusing to say or do something that you don't believe is right. Living in truth with other people means that you refuse to stay in any situation where you are unhappy with the behavior of another person. You refuse to tolerate it. You refuse to compromise."

— Brian Tracy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When you try to justify where you are by pointing out how bad things are, you are headed in the wrong direction. Reach for the thought that feels better, And allow the natural Well-Being that is yours."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Awareness is everything. Not just part of it. Not some aspect of it. Awareness is everything. Look, therefore, to your awareness, not to your thoughts.Your thoughts about things can betray you — and often do — because they can be colored by emotions. Your awareness cannot. Just observe what is so. Then observe what you think about what is so. Then ask yourself, Why am I thinking that? And, more important, What would happen if I thought something else?"

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Each of us is attracting in every moment of our lives. So when you feel that the law isn't working for you because you don't have what you want, realize that the law is responding to you. You are either attracting what you want or you are attracting the absence of what you want."

— Rhonda Byrne

"When you look into the eyes of a loved one, try to see his or her soul. Keep looking and you will see your soul also."

— Dr. Brian Weiss

"Patience, above all else, is what is needed right now. Do not let anxiousness or frustration take over. Conditions on the exterior of your experience will change, but your highest benefit will be achieved when conditions in your interior remain the same. Hold to your inner peace. Reclaim your identity. Trust your higher wisdom. Look to the grander vision."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you feel bad about the weight of your body, you will continue to attract feeling bad about your body. Being critical of your body, cringing at the sight of it, or finding fault with your body cause you to continue feeling bad about your body and attract more weight to you. One way to your perfect weight is to think about famous people who carry some extra weight, but whose personalities are breathtakingly magnetic. Do you focus on their weight or are you captivated by their magnetic personality? If you had a dynamic and joyful personality, lit people up and attracted them to you wherever you went, would you care so much about your weight? When you stop caring about your weight, and you decide to let your personality shine wherever you go, you will allow your body to balance into its perfect weight!"

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Think about how little it takes to do a lot for someone else and about the amazing, long-range consequences of a single thoughtful act. As the ancient Hindu sages realized, the laws of cause and effect are universal and the good and harm we do is eternal. They called this interplay karma: the sum effect of all our actions as well as our decisions not to take action."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You are powerful. You are unlimited. The genes of the One who created the universe are at the core of your being. You must be courageous to admit that all things are possible, and that you are equipped to handle them all."

"On the way to your destiny, there will be times of testing where you don't see anything happening. But you've got to stay in faith and keep believing."

— Joel Osteen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When you know that the infinite intelligence of the Universe exists, you can tune into it and draw anything from it. The past greats drew what they wanted from the infinite wisdom of the Universe and then produced it in our physical world. Although they took inspired physical steps, it was hand in hand with infinite intelligence, and so everything flowed to them effortlessly to create beyond what any human being had conceived before them."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Every time you say, I appreciate that. I really like that. I applaud that. I acknowledge the value in that. Every time you do that, you spend some of your Energy, and it is the spending of the Energy that creates a vacuum, so to speak, or an attraction, so to speak, that draws more and more and more and more."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Spirit will always give you what you need when you need it. Unfortunately, we don't usually want what we need. We fight tooth and nail by blaming others and refusing to accept the truth about ourselves. We create our own experiences because we need to grow."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Happiness resides not in possessions and not in gold; happiness dwells in the soul."

— Democritus
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Some of the very things that we fight against, the things that frustrate us are meant to keep us from harm. They're called Divine Delays."

— Joel Osteen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The future is brighter than ever. Not just humanity's future, but your own, personally. Things have shifted. The energy has been altered. You can feel it if you deeply tune in. This shift is not your imagination, nor is it merely on a national or global level. There is a shift in you. Feel it today, and use it to propel you to a wonderful tomorrow. In fact, do better than feel the energy. BE the energy. Be its Source. Then watch the conditions of your own life change."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Today many people commonly cause their own suffering, often for far lessor reasons than spiritual enlightenment, using their emotional and other wounds to manipulate others, to make them feel guilty or dependent. Many use their language of suffering to communicate the content of their hearts and minds because they lack a solid sense of self and cannot say that they are angry, hurt or afraid. Yet, today we fear suffering more than we seek it. And we confuse our fear of suffering with our fear of the consequences of surrendering to divine will. We fear that becoming to close to God will result not in blessings and beauty but in pain and loss. I believe that a part of the calling of the contemporary mystic is to de-animate this suffering relationship with the divine, transform it to one of fearless intimacy."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The most accurate measure of our worth is how much we value ourselves. When we value who we are, we are sure to draw to us others who value us as much. We cannot convince others how wonderful and marvelous we are if we do not believe it."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You cannot act in love and act in fear at the same time. You must choose between them."

— Gary Zukav

"Don't make assumptions. Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life."

— Don Miguel Ruiz

"There are hundreds of paths up the mountain, all leading to the same place, so it doesn't matter which path you take. The only person wasting time is the one who runs around the mountain, telling everyone that his or her path is wrong."

— Hindu proverb
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Prosperity is your birthright, and you hold the key to more abundance in every area of your life than you can possibly imagine. You deserve every good thing you want, and the Universe will give you every good thing you want, but you have to follow the rules of creation. Think thoughts of what you want. See it in your mind until it excites and thrills you, and you will most surely hold it in your hands."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Fear is the insidious belief that there is something that God cannot do or does not know. Fear not! No matter what you are experiencing, you cannot lose because help is on the way."

— Gary Zukav
in "Interesting Quotes"

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing."

— Jerome K. Jerome
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Work inspires inspiration. Keep working. If you succeed, keep working. If you fail, keep working. If you're interested, keep working. If you're bored, keep working."

— Michael Crichton
in "Interesting Quotes"




"People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway."

— Mother Teresa
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them — words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they're brought out. But it's more than that, isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That's the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller but for want of an understanding ear."

— Stephen King
in "Interesting Quotes"




"An authentically empowered individual is a compassionate and patient friend with herself or himself. Creating that friendship begins with emotional awareness."

— Joel Osteen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"People go through their whole lives chasing everything in the material world, and they fail to discover the greatest treasure of all, which is within them. Shut your eyes to the outside world. Direct your thoughts and words to the inside of you. The Master within you is the key to all the treasures in the world."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Embarrassment is a pointless experience. You have permission to abandon it. Replace it with self love and love of all others—and love of the imperfections you imagine you see in both. In truth, both are perfect in their 'imperfection,' for 'imperfection' merely means 'incompletion.'"

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Many of us have shame, guilt, pain and anger attached to things we have done or experienced. You are as sick as your secrets. Until you reveal, examine, and unpack the negative emotions attached to the secrets, thoughts, feelings, and experiences, you are held captive by them. "

in "Interesting Quotes"




"So much about this business of life mystifies me. I don't think I will ever get to the root of all the mini-curiosities about human nature that baffle me on a daily basis. How is it, I wondered this morning, that I could wake up in a state of overwhelm, having gone to bed with my usual sense that I was surrounded with grace. Should I credit upheaval in the planets? Or did I eat something that has the potency to toss around my imagination as well as my stomach? How is it that I can open my eyes and view my world, my life, through a lens of tension without even the benefit of a shower or a cup of coffee? It is exactly at such times that I know I must catch myself before I tumble into the nightmare - no, the daymare - of deception. I cannot allow my soul to precede with the business of managing the precious gift of my life while being so off-center. It is exactly at times like this when I must call upon the strength of my soul to do what it does best - take control of illusions that have somehow taken hold of me. My soul knows I am not overwhelmed. I may be overtired, but life is not overwhelming me. My soul knows that I have what it takes to see clearly, to maintain my focus, to stay loving even when I am tired. And I recognize the signs that I am overwhelmed by ordinary thoughts and illusions. I know when I have not spent enough time in the company of my soul. So today my prayer is for the grace of inner companionship. I want to be flooded - even possessed - by the many graces of the Divine that renew my sense of balance. I want the grace of tranquility to drench my spirit and wisdom to revitalize my mind and harmony to hold the center of my heart. Today I want to let grace lift the illusion of overwhelm from my consciousness as I rest in its healing wonders."

"Boredom is a self-imposed numbness. It is a retreat into a shell, a disconnecting from others, from yourself, and from Life."

— Gary Zukav and Linda Francis
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Write down all the great things about everyone you know. Make a huge list of all the wonderful things about you. Be a ray of sunshine to everyone you meet, and make their day better for having seen you. Say Thank you at every turn. Walk, talk, think, and breathe appreciation and gratitude. When you do this, your outer life will change to reflect your inner state of being."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You cannot be useful to yourself, others or God if you run yourself ragged. In order to serve others, support others, give to others, you must first be able to serve, support and give to yourself."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Your divine potential can often be heard speaking to you through your conscience, which lets you know when you have acted inappropriately. We all have felt the heavy, gut-wrenching sensation of guilt when we have judged another, broken our word, or passed up an opportunity that came our way. If you look closely at this feeling, you can sense that is it is the result of a repressing or acting against your divine potential. Conversely, you can also recognize the feeling of cellular harmony and health that comes from acting with love, compassion, generosity, and friendship."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Be easy about this. Be playful about it. Don't work so hard at it. Let your dominant intent to be to feel good, and if you don't feel good, then let your dominant intent be to feel relief. Feel your way through it. If you think your way through it, you can get off on all kinds of tangents. If you feel your way through it, you can come quickly to your Core Energy, and when you do that only good can then flow to you."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"We can never bring anything to us unless we are grateful for what we have. In fact, if somebody was completely and utterly grateful for everything, they would never have to ask for anything, because it would be given to them before they even asked. That is the power of Gratitude."

"It is not our responsibility to prove to people who we are. Our job and responsibility is to be. What you do is proof of who you are."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Sometimes simple prayers offer the greatest opportunity for a moment of reflection. Every day we prepare to experience something new, another unknown. Every conversation will be one we have never had before. Everything we will see and hear will be new vistas of life that hold the potential of changing how we see our personal world. That single truth is worth reflecting upon - the power of each new day to reshape and redirect the whole of our life, contained in each word we might hear or what we might read or see or who we might meet. Each new day is a new universe unto itself. My prayer for today is to dwell in the gift of this new day. No day is like yesterday. Be present to the power of every moment unfolding around you - and contribute your most positive language, your most loving emotions, and your deepest belief in the power of Divine intervention."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Just like the law of gravity, the law of attraction never slips up. You don't see pigs flying because the law of gravity made a mistake and forgot to apply gravity to pigs that day. Likewise, there are no exclusions to the law of attraction. If something came to you, you drew it, with prolonged thought. The law of attraction is precise."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Do not struggle. Go with the flow of things, and you will find yourself at one with the mysterious unity of the Universe."

— Chuang Tzu
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Your agenda for this day has been set in your soul. The only question now is whether you will listen to that. Do you know why you are alive? To give voice and action and physicality to God. To become the grandest version of the greatest vision ever you held about Who You Are. Everything else is beside the point."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Nobody likes being rejected, but rejection does not mean that there is something wrong with you. Rejection is only damaging when you start believing you are not complete."

in "Interesting Quotes"




"Life is such an amazing journey. As a prepare to teach my class on understanding illness, I am reminded of the tender and vulnerable qualities of human beings. I have long marveled at the difference between what I know intellectually and what I have learned through my soul. The soul - that mysterious force within us - is our mustard seed that can tackle any mountain. That equation will never really make sense to the intellect, which relies upon the consistency of mathematics. The soul uses Divine equations and calculations: one prayer has the power to change the direction of an illness or lift a depressed spirit out of its darkness. My prayer for today is to let the grace of wonderment flood into me. Life is filled with Divine wonders and extraordinary calculations. One prayer can make all the difference. Invisible power is a mustard seed against the visible mountains in our lives. Today I will dwell in the wonderment - and maybe even longer than today. Wonderment is a marvelous place to dwell."

— Caroline Myss

"Being spiritual in a physical world requires physical actions: reaching out to others to relieve their suffering and help them on their path, being compassionate, helping to heal the planet and its inhabitants."

— Brian Weiss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There comes a time when the pain of continuing exceeds the pain of stopping. At that moment, a threshold is crossed. What seemed unthinkable becomes thinkable. Slowly, the realization emerges that the choice to continue what you have been doing is the choice to live in discomfort, and the choice to stop what you have been doing is the choice to breathe deeply and freely again. Once that realization has emerged, you can either honor it or ignore it, but you cannot forget it. What has become known can not become unknown again."

— Gary Zukav
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When you understand that fear puts you on a frequency of attracting more fearful events and circumstances into your life, you will realize how important it is to move off that frequency. People are in fear of losing their job, paying the bills, getting sick, and the list goes on. But the fear of those things summons them to us. In every instance fear comes from thinking thoughts of what you don't want, so the way to turn that around is to think the opposite thoughts, which are thoughts of what you do want. Keep thinking thoughts of what you want until you feel better. When you feel noticeably better, you have moved on to a different frequency."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The thought that you think, you think, which attracts to it; so you think it some more, which attracts to it; so you think it some more. In other words, when you have an expectation, you've got a dominant thought going on, and Law of Attraction is going to deliver that to you again, and again and again. And you say The reason that I believe this, is because it is true. And we say, the reason that you believe it, is because you've practiced the thought. All that a belief is, is a thought that you keep practicing."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Self-doubt can easily become the cause of every missed step in life. Self-doubt steals dreams, denies hope, and assassinates faith. Know that you know what you are doing. When you do what feels right for you, know that you know it is right for you."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Healing does not require that you master the unreasonable side of your reason. Nor does healing require inner perfection of any order. A common trait shared by people who have healed is that they cease being unreasonable in ways that no longer matter in the greater scheme of life. Against the scale of life or death, how important is winning an argument? How important is holding a grudge? How important is anything other than how well we love others, how deeply we regard the value of the gift of life, and what we do with our life that makes this world a better place?"

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Since you have control over what thoughts you offer, what could be more just than the powerful Law of Attraction responding equally to everyone who offers a vibration? Once you gain control over the thoughts you think, your sense of injustice will subside and will be replaced with the exuberance for life and the zest to create that you were born with. Let everything in the Universe be an example to you of the way the Laws of the Universe work."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Your thoughts have immense magnetic power that is more powerful than anything in this world. Be a magnet to what you want, and think about what you want instead of what you don't want. Your magnetic power works equally for both."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"We are not carelessly designed creatures. Everything about us has purpose, logic and intelligence built into it, including how and why we become ill. The emotional, psychological and spiritual stresses present in our minds travel, like oxygen, to every part of our bodies. When stress settles is a particular area of the body, it is because that part of the body corresponds to the type of stress we are experiencing."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Discipline is the only way to avoid struggle, chaos, and confusion. When you know what you must do, when you must do it, and why you are doing it, things that are not in alignment with your intent seem to fall away."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"It doesn't matter who you are or where you are, the law of attraction lines up every single thing in your life through your thoughts. You are the one who asks for things to be lined up for you, so don't dwell on something you don't want. Dwell on what you want."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Who you really are is Nonphysical Energy focused in a physical body, knowing full well that all is well and always has been and always will be. You are here to experience the supreme pleasure of concluding new desires, and then of bringing yourself into vibrational alignment with the new desire that you've concluded — for the purpose of taking thought beyond that which it has been before."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Forgiveness eliminates the negative thoughts and emotions which create negative effects in your life. When you learn to forgive, you no longer have reasons to be angry. You see. You hear. You intuit. You forgive. You move on. It is really quite simple."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Be easy about it. Don't rush into things. Savor them more. Make more plans and be more deliberate and specific about the plans you are making, and in all you do, let your dominant intent be to find that which pleasures you as you imagine it. Let your desire for pleasure and your desire for feeling good be your only guiding light. As you seek those thoughts that feel good, you will always be in vibrational harmony with the Energy that is your Source. And under those conditions, only good can come to you — and only good can come from you."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The past is to be learned from not lived in."

— Joel Osteen

"We are not simply biological creatures, the result of a happenstance of chemical processes, walking the earth just trying to get through it all with a minimum of harm to ourselves and others. We are Creations of the Deity, Products of the Divine, Individuations of God. We are Singular Expressions of The Singularity, Essential Elements of the Essence of Life Itself."

"You are okay just the way you are...and so is everybody else. Sometimes we want the kind of acceptance that we are not willing to give. Yet life is a two-way street, and we do so much better when we send to others what we want them to send to us. Just a gentle reminder today that you are wonderful, and the person right next to you is, too!"

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Every opportunity you have, be good to people. You don't know why God has put that person in your path. It's not a coincidence. God has strategically lined up every detail, every step of your life."

— Joel Osteen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Each and every day, make time for a self-inventory. This is best done at the end of the day. Mentally reflect on the day's activities. Did you honor your agreements with yourself and others? Did you ask for guidance and follow it? What were the things you did today which you want to do better? Did you celebrate your successes today? What are you willing to work on about yourself tomorrow. Self-evaluation is the key to self-understanding."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Trust your instincts. It's the Universe inspiring you. If you have an intuitive or instinctive feeling, follow it, and you will find that the Universe is magnetically moving you to receive something that you asked for."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Happiness is always found in the moment that is here, now. Constantly remembering bad things, or sad things, can rob you of your present — that is, your pre-sent — joy. Happiness has been sent to you in advance by God. It is here, in this moment, if you will seize it...and share it."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The first element of change is awareness. You can't change something unless you know it exists."

— T. Harv Eker

"You are perceptual beings with different vantage points and — it does not matter how much information is given — you cannot see beyond the vibrational limits of where you are standing. You cannot live or see or experience outside of your own individual beliefs."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Be comfortable with who you are. You don't have to outperform others to feel good about yourself. It's not about them. It's about becoming all you were created to be."

— Joel Osteen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"It is not our job in life to judge what is right or wrong for somebody else. When another person behaves in a manner which seems to be unhealthy or unproductive, we must not judge. We must learn to accept. Once we accept this is how the person chooses to behave, we have the right to decide whether or not we want to participate."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There is no more powerful act than that of making a choice. Choose to seek the symbolic or spiritual presence in every moment and situation of your life. Even the smallest positive action can help someone heal."

"If your desire is strong enough, it doesn't matter what your beliefs are. If you have a desire that is strong enough, that desire will be the dominant vibration, and it will over-ride any other vibration that you have."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you become ruffled with every comment that you consider a 'slight,' you will never find peace. Nor will you find it by always separating yourself from those who ruffle you. You can only end so many friendships before you find yourself very much alone. You can keep making new friends, of course, but sooner or later they will ruffle you — and then what? Perhaps the better course might be to let the ruffle go. People rarely mean it when they do that, and a touch of gentle tolerance and easy forgiveness every day is even better than an apple."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There is no such thing as a simple act of compassion or an inconsequential act of service. Everything we do for another person has infinite consequences. Every action give rise to a ripple effect, just as a pebble that is tossed into a pond sends out wave after wave, widening and covering more and more space. Everything we do and say matters. Period. This is why Buddhists and Hindus, indeed all the great spiritual traditions, teach the importance of mindfulness in speech and attention to behavior, because of the limitless, unforeseen effects of our every action and word. Even our thoughts have a force and power about which we have to careful."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"We all have somebody in our lives who has the uncanny ability to push our buttons. We think it is the other person. Surprise, surprise! The problem doesn't lie in the other person, it lies in us! No one can push our buttons unless the buttons are connected. Detach whatever fear, guilt, shame, or anger we have attached to the issue and people will be unable to push us."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life."

— Steve Jobs
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up."

"We all have unfair things happen to us. We can choose to cling to that hurt and let it poison our future, or we can release it and trust God to make it up to us."

— Joel Osteen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The secret to freedom is to realize that you don't have to believe your mind. You don't have to believe your story. You don't have to believe that voice in your head. You don't have to believe your own thinking. You can simply observe it and say, Thank you for sharing, and then take the necessary action you're scared to take anyway."

— T.Harv Eker
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you could get to the place where you no longer feel a need to push against anything that you disagree with—you would become in alignment with what you do agree with. Even within your own body, it is your pushing against those things you don't agree with that causes you to be out of alignment with what you do agree."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Have you ever been so angry with someone that you stopped speaking to them, refused to acknowledge them or even speak their name? When you become so angry with a person that you want to shut them out of your life, you need to know that there is something going on with YOU that has nothing to do with them."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be."

— Marcel Pagnol

— T.Harv Eker
in "Interesting Quotes"




"When you know something or someone in your life is unhealthy or unproductive, that you have grown beyond where they are and where they want to keep you, you must let go. If you tell yourself you do not see it when you do, or if you tell yourself it will get better, you are not being honest with yourself. Stop trying to fix things or change things. Simply let go."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Positive thinking is thinking creatively about what you want. Just make sure that you don't add any negative words to your thoughts. For example, if you are always late, then saying, I'm not going to be late, is still negative thinking because your focus is on late. Instead say, I'm always early, or, I'm always in plenty of time wherever I go, because your focus is on early and plenty of time and that's what you will attract. Do you get the idea?"

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Don't miss a great season of your life wishing you had more, complaining about what you can't do. The real joy in life is in the simple things."

— Joel Osteen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Life is supposed to be fun. You said, I'll go forth and choose. I'll look at the data, and I'll say yes to this and yes to this and yes to this; and I'll paint a picture of the things that I want, and I'll vibrate about them because that's what I'm giving my attention to. And the Universe will respond to my vibration. And then I'll stand in a new place where a whole new batch of yeses are available, and I'll say yes to this and yes to this and yes to this. You did not say, I'll go forth and struggle into joy, because from your Nonphysical Perspective you know it is vibrationally not possible. You cannot struggle to joy. Struggle and joy are not on the same channel. You joy your way to joy. You laugh your way to success. It is through your joy that good things come."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Seeds must be planted in the garden. The planted seed must be nurtured with commitment and care. The care includes inspection for and elimination of destructive pests and the uprooting of weeds. People who judge, criticize, blame, and find fault are pests. They cannot be ignored. They must be eliminated from your mind and heart, from your mental, emotional, and spiritual garden."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"

— Joel Osteen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Every time you praise something, every time you appreciate something, every time you feel good about something, you are telling the Universe, More of this, please. More of this, please. You need never again make another verbal statement of this intent, and if you were allowing your cork to float — all good things would flow to you."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The act of prostitution is generally associated with selling one's body for money, but to my mind that is the least significant example of the Prostitute archetype. The Prostitute thrives most bountifully in subtle ways and in the ordinary, everyday circumstances. It comes into play most clearly when our survival is threatened. Its core issue is how much you are willing to sell yourself - your morals, your integrity, your intellect, your word, your body, or your soul - for the sake of physical security. The Prostitute archetype also dramatically embodies and tests the power of faith. If you have faith, no one can buy you. You know that you can take care of yourself and also the Divine is looking out for you. Without faith, however, you will eventually meet the price you cannot turn down."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Your home is not only your safe haven, it is a reflection of your consciousness. Whatever is going on in your mind will be reflected in the conditions of your home. To achieve balance and clarity in your life, you must have a solid, clean foundation. Your home and the conditions in which you live are a good place to start."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Certain illnesses occur as a part of Nature's cleansing program. Just as rain storms clean the air over our cities, epidemics like influenza cleanse the energy of the collective unconscious. The general stress and toxins that build up naturally and gradually in our atmosphere - toxins that we invisibly breathe in and consume - are discharged through the various influenza viruses. This type of illness is not so much associated with a specific emotional issue as it is with cleansing the emotional stress that is just part of life."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Change is inevitable. Growth is optional."

— John C. Maxwell
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Gratitude is a powerful process for shifting your energy and bringing more of what you want into your life. Be grateful for what you already have and you will attract more good things."

"If you'll develop a habit of putting the right thoughts in - thoughts of faith, thoughts of hope, encouraging thoughts - eventually your mind will be transformed. You'll find yourself positive, hopeful and strong."

— Joel Osteen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Milk every moment for all the pleasure you can get from it. When you say, It is my dominant intent to look for things that feel good today. No matter where I'm going, no matter what I'm doing, no matter who I'm doing it with, it is my dominant intent to look for what I'm wanting to see, to look for things that feel good, and the more you develop the habit of that kind of vibration—the more the Universe understands that that's who you are! And so, the more you have access only to those kinds of things!"

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Our physical immune system is extremely sensitized to respond to the signals it receives from our emotions. Just like a moat surrounding and protecting a castle, our immune systems respond to a protect us form invasion, both in the sense of germ invasion and emotional invasion. Specifically, our immune system respond to our sense of safety. Just as the physical immune system is triggered into action when a threatening element introduced into the system, so also does the emotional immune system respond with hight activity when we feel intimidated, insecure and threatened, or when we need to preform in a assertive or aggressive ways."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"

— T.D. Jakes
in "Interesting Quotes"




"It is all within us. Every human being is born with a capacity to have everything that exists in this world. If it does not happen, it is because you are lazy and sloppy, and you do not even have this concept in your head. I am giving it to you to put in your head. You have to keep it there, you have to want to be happy, free, and completely realized. There is nothing else."

— Swami Rudrananda
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Gratitude is a powerful process for lifting your frequency and bringing more of what you want into your life. Be grateful for what you already have, which will shift you on to a higher frequency, and voila! You will attract much better things."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Sometimes in life, a fog sets in and you don't know which way is the right direction. Every voice may tell you it's not going to happen, but God has placed a promise in your heart. Refuse to listen to those voices. Keep believing."

— Joel Osteen
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If your dominant intent is to feel joy while you are doing the work, your triad of intentions—freedom, growth and joy—will come quickly and easily into alignment. See your career as one of creating a joyful life experience. You are not a creator of things or a regurgitator of what someone else has created or a gatherer of stuff. You are a creator, and the subject of your creation is your joyful life experience. That is your mission. That is your quest. That is why you are here."

— Abraham Hicks
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you take the focus off having money and getting things, if you surrender anger to understanding, fear to acceptance, and hate to love, the universe will respond by bringing you more of what you focus on. When you shift from the intellect to the spirit, you are bound to find a new way of life. This will be a life dedicated to peace, joy, and compassion."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"

— Robert Collier
in "Interesting Quotes"




"I am personally convinced that one person can be a change catalyst, a transformer in any situation, any organization. Such an individual is yeast that can leaven an entire loaf. It requires vision, initiative, patience, respect, persistence, courage, and faith to be a transforming leader."

— Stephen R. Covey
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you are going to fuss over things, it is important to pick your battles. The ideal, of course, would be to fuss over nothing. But given that we are all human, that may not be possible. What is possible is picking much more carefully the things that we are prepared to make a fuss over. Ask yourself: How much difference will this make when I'm 85? If you think it will matter then, let it matter now. If you make everything matter now, you may not get to be 85."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If there's something in your life and you feel there's a threat you may lose it, heap lashings and lashings of gratitude all over it. Focus your mind on the fact that you currently have it in your life, and be so grateful that you do. Really feel that gratitude, because intense gratitude for what you have holds it to you."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Forgiveness is a process of giving up the old for something new. Old experiences and memories that we hold on to in anger, resentment, shame, or guilt cloud our spirit mind. The truth is, everything that has happened had to happen. It was a growth experience. There was something you needed to know or learn. If you stay angry, hurt, afraid, ashamed, or guilty, you miss the lesson. You will be stuck in a cloud of pain."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Disease and the cause of disease are studied and treated within the is physically oriented reality system. As a result, both the causes identified for the breakdown of the human body and the treatments applied to heal them are physical. Moreover, because of the physical orientation of science and medicine, the perception is widely held that illnesses such as viruses, infections and cancer occur as a result of an invasion by an outside source, such as germs and bacteria. The difficulty with this perception is not that it is inaccurate but that it is incomplete and leads to the further assumption that every cause for every disease comes form only the outside world."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"I believe life is a series of near misses. A lot of what we ascribe to luck is not luck at all. It's seizing the day and accepting responsibility for your future. It's seeing what other people don't see. And pursuing that vision."

— Howard Schultz
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Once a man has made a commitment to a way of life, he puts the greatest strength in the world behind him. It's something we call heart power. Once a man has made this commitment, nothing will stop him short of success."

— Vincent Lombardi
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The moment that you feel that, just possibly, you're walking down the street naked, exposing too much of your heart and your mind and what exists on the inside, showing too much of yourself. That's the moment you may be starting to get it right."

— Neil Gaiman
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Whatever you are challenged by, be grateful. There is a lesson to be learned. Be grateful you are alive, being given the opportunity to grow, learn, and conquer yourself. Be grateful there's a challenging experience upon you now, knowing you are equipped to handle it."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow."

— Mary Anne Radmacher
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Surrendering the need for an explanation represents a profound act of personal transformation. What you are releasing is the need for God or the heavens or the Divine to explain the events of your life in a rational way, as if the heavens operated according to the laws of our land and the rules of human interaction. Surrender represents a course correction of our belief that others are responsible for our life and, more to the point, for our pain and failures. It also represents a supreme act of faith that states, With you, God, all things are possible, including my healing. In saying that prayer, however, you leave it to God to chart the course of possibilities for your healing. As the saying goes, all our prayers are answered, but sometimes the answer is no."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you don't get uncomfortable leaving your comfort zone then you haven't really left it."

— Tim Brown
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Life is a series of experiences, each of which makes us bigger, even though it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward."

— Mary Anne Radmacher
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Most of us tell little fibs to impress others or to hide what we perceive to be a weakness. To keep from being found out, we are compelled to lie. But remember, what you draw to you is what you are. If you are being dishonest with someone, someone will be dishonest with you. Dishonesty in general, and lying in particular, is the fear-motivated behavior of the need to be in control and the lack of self-knowledge."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Life is simple. Your life is made up of only two kinds of things positive things and negative things."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Worry stagnates the mind, creates an imbalance in the immune system, and impairs the ability to see beyond the thing being worried about. We worry about things we cannot control. We worry about the past and the future. We worry about what we do not have and cannot get. We must eliminate the tendency to worry. Make a commitment to yourself to let worry go and move on."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars."

— Og Mandino
in "Interesting Quotes"




"What you feel about another person, what you think or say about another person, what you do to another person you do to you. Give judgment and criticism and you give it to yourself. Give love and appreciation to another person or anything, and you give it to yourself."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Forgive everything! Forgiveness does not erase the memory of an experience, it neutralizes its impact. There are simply no words that adequately describe the power and efficacy of forgiveness."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You have made your wishes and dreams known to God. Now comes the time for faith. Faith that all is right, right now. Tomorrow will reveal itself exactly as it should."

— T. Harv Eker
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Life isn't happening to you; life is responding to you. Life is your call! Every area of your life is your call. You are the creator of your life. You are the writer of your life story. You are the director of your life movie. You decide what your life will be by what you give out."

— Rhonda Byrne
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Acceptance is simply recognition. When you recognize a thing, you see it for what it is. All of our experiences, no matter how awful they appear to be, are temporary. Acceptance of an experience as a temporary situation can make it a lot easier to handle."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"All of life is animated by a single fantastic energy, which is the essence of everything that is — including you. Isn't that amazing? Now, because this essence is who you are and what you are made of, it can obviously never leave you. Perhaps not so obviously, it can also be wonderfully helpful. It can bring you peace in moments of stress, strength in moments of weakness, courage in moments of fear, wisdom in moments of confusion, forgiveness in moments of anger, and love in all the moments of your life. All you have to do is know that this is true, and it will be true for you, right now. I think that's terrific, don't you?"

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There comes a time in your life when you simply have to be still. Being still does not mean doing nothing. It means consciously tuning in to the Self. Being still means listening within for the guidance or answers you need."

"Whatever life may send your way — make the best of it. Don't waste your time and energy worrying about it. Instead, find a way to do something about it. Learn from it, adjust to it, be strong, be flexible and be your best in every situation. You have GREATNESS within you!"

— Les Brown
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Every day is a new beginning, and that nothing from yesterday has to affect who you are today. It does no good at all to bemoan what you may have done on a day prior to today — or even, for that matter, a moment ago. You don't have to carry that into the Present Moment, nor is your guilt about it going to do you any good at good. Simply resolve to become a different version of your self right here, right now. Use yesterday to inspire tomorrow, not to discourage it."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Prayer is such a delicate thing. I often don't realize any more that I have slipped into prayer mode or seeing my life through the lens of holiness. Away from the world of Franciscan monks and back to ordinary life, it is easy to become distracted by noise and traffic, by airports and strangers and waiting in lines longer than one can handle. And then after traveling for hours and hours, dripping with airline exhaustion, I am greeted with the smiles of two people who are so happy to see me. I felt my spirit light up immediately - and just like that, I thought how amazing that the first thing that I encountered in this city was love. I didn't expect that. It occurred to me later as I settled into my hotel room - yet another hotel room - that being greeted by love in a foreign city is such a sweet blessing....God in the small details of one's life again and again. Why not greet a place with love? It's all about choice after all. I made the decision last night to let that choice become permanent in my heart - a living prayer. Some prayers are said once and others we decide are a constant within us. We just keep them as active parts of our hearts and slip into them, already in motion. We don't need to repeat them. These prayers slip into us, reminding us of how to see the world around us. We can see with love - just like that. What a powerful realization."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"This is the only life you have. You can't be somebody else; this is your one shot. You may have a thousand reasons to live unhappy, but you've got to make the decision to choose to be content."

"Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours."

— Dale Carnegie
in "Interesting Quotes"




"What do you do when it seems as if people want to stay in their pain. They have a story to tell and they tell you every chance they get. Well, believe it or not, they may like where they are. Our job is to leave them there. You can point the way out of pain, but you cannot force them to get out. You can support the move beyond their limitations, but you cannot make the move for them. "

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You can't do anything as long as you are afraid of what might happen. Fear clouds opportunities, erases possibilities, and limits the ability to move beyond the place in which the mind is stuck. No matter how difficult we think the problem is, we must muster up the courage to face it."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There is nothing that can happen TO you that can't also happen FOR you...if you'll let it."

"Caroline's Daily Prayer: How does the Sacred enter into a person's life? And what does that holy entry feel like? Today, on my last day in Assisi, I visited the mountain where St. Francis received the stigmata - the wounds of Christ. He was the first to experience this mystical phenomenon - an unexplainable cosmic act unlike any other. I walked the grounds of this mountain and the chapel area and then attended a service with Franciscan monks singing Gregorian chants. Hearing Latin again sent me back into the early days of my childhood - learning to pray and sing and read in Latin. How familiar this world is to me...it is my spiritual DNA. As I stood near the monks absorbing the vibrations of their singing, I noticed the others who had gathered. People closed their eyes and listened - wanting to drink in the grace of these monks. No doubt many blended in their own prayers. The Sacred enters us just like that - when we gather to celebrate the beauty or holiness of life - or to hold each other through a sorrowful passage. We are never out of a field of grace but perhaps we need each other to sense it. I was reminded today that praying with others is bliss and all it requires is for you to bless the moment you are sharing with others. We can start there - and may heaven bless each of you."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"We are living in a new age, a new time, when things must be different. You cannot continue to do what has always been done. Something or someone must change. It might as well be you! You have the visions. You have the opportunity. The only thing you need is the strength and courage to recognize that you have been chosen for the awesome task of implementing change."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Don't dismiss the synchronicity of what is happening right now finding its way to your life at just this moment. There are no coincidences in the universe, only convergences of Will, Intent, and Experience."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Spiritual depression presents itself in much the same way as clinical depression - but not quite. The marks of distinction are crucial, yet hard for the untrained to recognize. They make the difference between interpreting the source of depression as a problem that may require medication or as a process of transformation that is best served by reflection, discussion of the stages of the dark night, and understanding the nature of mystical prayer. I have met many people who have been treated for depression and other conditions when they were in fact, in the deep stages of a spiritual crisis. Without the proper support, that crisis becomes misdirected into a a problem with relationships, a problem with one's childhood, or a chronic malaise. Spiritual crises are now a very real part of our spectrum of health challenges and we need to acknowledge them with the same authority as we do clinical depression."

"Acceptance is simply recognition. When you recognize a thing, you see it for what it is. All of our experiences, no matter how awful they appear to be, are temporary. Acceptance of an experience as a temporary situation can make it a lot easier to handle."

"Arguments get you nowhere, and being 'right' is rarely helpful. What works when there is a disagreement is love. That may sound simplistic, but it is true — and very sound. Ask yourself, What do I want here? What is really important? Look to see if there is a difference between being 'right' and being 'accurate.' Accuracy can be very helpful, and therefore welcome. Righteousness rarely is either."

"Forgiveness is a transcendent force that releases you from far more than the individual with whom you have a painful history. Forgiveness releases you from the ego state of consciousness that clings to a need for justice built around the fear of being humiliated, based on our prior experiences of humiliation. Forgiveness is essential to healing, because it requires you to surrender your ego's need to have a life fall into place around your personal version of justice."

"I overheard harsh words being exchanged between two people today. I watched from a distance as each person used sharp words to slice into the other. Afterwards a woman was left weeping in the corner. I did not know what to do so I said a prayer for her and then I heard the guidance to sit with her for a moment — bold instruction, as I did not speak her language and did not know her. But I listened to my guidance and softly sat next to her. I reached over and touched her arm while praying for calmness to restore her body and heart. Her breathing calmed down. She closed her eyes and I felt her pain and tension travel through my body and into the endless space of God's healing universe. Then we smiled at each other and parted. I lived my prayer for today - and sometimes living your prayer is required of you."

"You will only benefit from resisting the temptation to think immediately about the worst possible outcome. When something comes up, when something happens in your life, that disrupts the easy flow, it is always better to bless it than to damn it. Try to see it as nothing serious. It most cases, it will not be. Jumping to conclusions mired in negativity only thwarts the process by which your mind can stay clear, and thus find a way out of the momentary dilemma."
