"To some people, surrender may have negative connotations, implying defeat, giving up, failing to rise to the challenges of life, becoming lethargic, and so on. True surrender, however, is something entirely different. It does not mean to passively put up with whatever situation you find yourself in and to do nothing about it. Nor does it mean to cease making plans or initiating positive action. Surrender is the simple but profound wisdom of yielding to rather than opposing the flow of life."

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."

Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we're safe in our own paradise. Our soulmate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we're two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we've found the right person. Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life."

"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."

Indeed, intellect is the most perfect of all the weapons with which will has endowed creatures, for as the ink sac of the cuttlefish serves to conceal the animal's flight or approach, so intellect serves to hide the intent of the will and thus to insure its success."

"Do the things you used to talk about doing but never did. Know when to let go and when to hold on tight. Stop rushing. Don't be intimidated to say it like it is. Stop apologizing all the time. Learn to say no, so your yes has some oomph. Spend time with the friends who lift you up, and cut loose the ones who bring you down. Stop giving your power away. Be more concerned with being interested than being interesting. Be old enough to appreciate your freedom, and young enough to enjoy it. Finally know who you are."

— Blaise Pascal
in "Kind words accomplish much"




"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."

"Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy."

"You don't need anyone's affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn't actually about you. It's about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don't have to internalize that. Your worth isn't contingent upon other people's acceptance of you — it's something inherent. You exist, and therefore, you matter. You're allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings.

It's one thing if a person owns up to their behavior and makes an effort to change.

in "Practice forgiveness"




"Money is just a way of keeping track of the value you're creating in the world. By and large, your income measures how well you're giving society what it needs and is willing to pay for. If you've found a legitimate need society has, and if you meet it better than anyone else, you cannot help but become rich. Thus, the value creator isn't a hoarder. He doesn't take. He gives of his genius, sweat and innovation. He stays attentive to the needs of his fellow man and solves problems that have been heretofore unsolvable. Entrepreneurs quite literally drive the progress and evolution of mankind."

"My prayer today is to become more mindful of my personal actions. What motivates me to do what I do and to say the things I do to others? I often dismiss my actions because of stress or anger but the people I hurt along the way do not dismiss what I've said or done. Every action and every word carries a consequence.

"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. He will put some things behind, will pass an invisible boundary; new, universal, and more liberal laws will begin to establish themselves around and within him; or the old laws be expanded, and interpreted in his favor in a more liberal sense, and he will live with the license of a higher order of beings. 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."

— Henry David Thoreau
in "Dreams do come true for those who dare to believe in themselves"

They allow the other absolute freedom, because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now.

"When a big change occurs in your life it forces you to change direction. Sometimes the new path may not be easy, but you can be absolutely certain that there is magnificence for you on the new path. You can be absolutely certain that the new path contains things that you could not have experienced otherwise. When we look back at a negative event that occurred in the past, we often see how in fact it transformed our life. We see how that event directed us toward a life that we would not change for anything."

— Nancy Soon
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."

"The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it.

"A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

— Ram Dass

"Western civilization, in spite of claims to support diversity, is promoting a worldwide monoculture—the same basic values, institutions and points of view for everyone—which it calls 'globalization'. Western commercial culture with its pursuit of markets and commodities eliminates all true culture, which is based on quality, not quantity. It creates a culture of money that submerges any true culture of refinement or spirituality, in which everything can be bought and sold, possessed or capitalized on. ... The destruction of cultural diversity, like that of biodiversity, is devastating to living systems. The loss of cultural diversity does to human beings what the destruction of biodiversity does to the world of nature. Just as we are destroying our outer landscape of forests and wilderness, so we are destroying our inner landscape of art and spirituality. Our minds are as polluted as our rivers."

— David Frawle
in "Biodynamics, Anarchy, Consumer Democracy and the Danger of Monocultures"




"It's easy to feel uncared for when people aren't able to communicate and connect with you in the way you need. And it's so hard not to internalize that silence as a reflection on your worth. 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."

"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"

What we take to be true is our reality."

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."

Don't try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human."

"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"

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

"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"

"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

"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."

— 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"

— Swami Parthasarathy

"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?"

"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

— 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."

"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"

— 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."

"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"

— 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."

— Wallace D. Wattles
in "Interesting Quotes"




"What I know for sure is this: You are built not to shrink down to less, but to blossom into more. To be more splendid. To be more extraordinary. To use every moment to fill yourself up."

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Every positive change—every jump to a higher level of energy and awareness—involves a rite of passage. Each time to ascend to a higher rung on the ladder of personal evolution, we must go through a period of discomfort, of initiation. I have never found an exception."

— Dan Millman
in "Interesting Quotes"




"To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless."

— Gilbert K. Chesterton
in "Interesting Quotes"




"I am willing to release the need to be unworthy. I am worthy of the very best in life, and I now lovingly allow myself to accept it."

— Louise Hay
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Cast out envy; you can have all that you want, and you need not envy any man what he has. 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
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Do whatever it takes - meditate, exercise, pray, read, write, listen to music, whatever you find that works - to ignite your awareness daily. Then you will create and contribute to Life as you have never contributed before."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"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."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"

"It's all there. Everything you need to know. Why you are here, what you are here to do and how you must go about accomplishing every task. It's all right there in your heart.

"Hello, sun in my face. Hello, you who made the morning and spread it over the fields and into the faces of the tulips and the nodding morning glories, and into the windows of, even, the miserable and the crotchety best preacher that ever was, dear star, that just happens to be where you are in the universe to keep us from ever-darkness, to ease us with warm touching, to hold us in the great hands of light good morning, good morning, good morning. Watch, now, how I start the day in happiness, in kindness."

— Mary Oliver
in "Interesting Quotes"

— Iyanla Vanzant
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
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Everyone has their own path. Walk yours with integrity and wish all others peace on their journey. When your paths merge, rejoice for their presence in your life.

— Unknown Author
in "Interesting Quotes"




"We can only help make our lives and our world more peaceful, when we ourselves feel peace. Peace already exists within each of us, if we only allow ourselves to feel its comfort.

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

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"A quiet mind is all you need. All else will happen rightly, once your mind is quiet. As the sun on rising makes the world active, so does self-awareness affect changes in the mind.

— Dalai Lama

— 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"

"In order to remove guilt you must acknowledge to yourself what you have done. When possible you must make amends. Once you have done these two things, let yourself off the hook! Letting yourself off of the hook means that you will not beat yourself up forever, and it gives you the opportunity to make better choices next time."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"

"It doesn't matter if you can't get a cell phone signal or Wi-Fi where you are. You are always connected to Source. I'm not kidding about this. I'm serious. Wherever you are, wherever you go, you are always connected to Divine Wisdom, Divine Intelligence, and Divine Love. Just close your eyes. Breathe. 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"




"Act on your inner guidance, and give up your need for 'proof' that your inner guidance is authentic. The more you ask for proof, the less likely you are to receive any."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"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. Nothing you can do will make you look better, sound better or in any way be better, more acceptable than the person God made you to be."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If what you are feeling doesn't make you feel better, change the feeling. Talk to your brain. Talk to your heart. Talk to the cloud of funk that is lurking around. No! 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."

— Neale Donald Walsch
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. Never try to change a person you love, because the very effort to change says that you love half, and the other half of the person is not accepted. When you love, you simply love."

— Osho
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional."

— Dalai Lama
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The foundation of greatness is honoring the small things of the present moment, instead of pursuing the idea of greatness."

— Eckhart Tolle
in "Interesting Quotes"




"A non-doer is very often a critic-that is, someone who sits back and watches doers, and then waxes philosophically about how the doers are doing. It's easy to be a critic, but being a doer requires effort, risk, and change."

— Wayne Dyer
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."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Look forward rather than backward. A story can drag on forever. You must put a period at the end of an experience. You must bring closure to it and experience when it is over."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"By far the strongest poison to the human spirit is the inability to forgive oneself or another person. Forgiveness is no longer an option but a necessity for healing."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The health of the body is determined to a great degree by our mental processes: what we think of life and especially of ourselves, at both the conscious and the unconscious levels."

— James Redfield
in "Interesting Quotes"




"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"




"If small things have the power to disturb you, then who you think you are is exactly that: small."

— Neale Donald Walsch
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."

in "Interesting Quotes"




"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."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Energy is power, and transmitting energy into the past by dwelling on painful events drains power from your present-day body and can lead to illness."

— 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."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Gratitude and humility send signals to all who meet us that we're all connected to something larger than life itself."

— Wayne Dyer
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is a strength; mastering yourself is a true power."

— Lao Tzu
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Our inner guidance comes to us through our feelings and body wisdom first — not through intellectual understanding. The intellect works best in service to our intuition, our inner guidance, soul, God or higher power — whichever term we choose for the spiritual energy that animates life."

— 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
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Gratitude is the sweetest thing in a seeker's life — in all human life. If there is gratitude in your heart, then there will be tremendous sweetness in your eyes."

— Sri Chinmoy

"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."

— Osho

"If you can cultivate the right attitude, your enemies are your best spiritual teachers because their presence provides you with the opportunity to enhance and develop tolerance, patience and understanding."

— 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"




"For the next twenty-four hours, you are to live totally for yourself. For one entire day, complement yourself! Encourage yourself! Correct yourself! Do whatever you want to do with you and for you for twenty-four hours. It can be a phenomenally mind-blowing experience."

— Iyanla Vanzant
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. Your soul is a compass. Change one coordinate in your spiritual compass and you change your entire life's direction."

— Caroline Myss
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Imagine a new story for your life and start living it!"

— Paulo Coelho
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Set your sights, and do it now. Do not wait until conditions are right or you have all the money saved or until whatever else you think needs to be in place is finally in place. Set your sights now. It is the setting of sights that creates the outcome. Life proceeds out of your intentions for it."

— 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. What you really want to do is nurture the attitude that you are open to learning more about yourself. Accepting more about yourself. This is what will inspire you to do something new."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"For what it's worth: It's never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you're proud of, and if you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start over."

— Shirdi Sai Baba
in "Interesting Quotes"




"The ultimate meditation is: surrender to reality. The more you fight, the more you are in conflict with it, the more you will be a loser. In deep surrender, the ego disappears. And when the ego is not there, for the first time you become aware of that which has always been there."

— 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. So first find peace within and you will see this inner peace reflected everywhere else. You are this peace! You are happiness, find out. Where else will you find peace if not within you?"

— Papaji
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place."

— Iain Thomas
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself."

— 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
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning."

— Jiddu Krishnamurti
in "Interesting Quotes"




"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."

— Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage."

— Ralph Waldo Emerson
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!"

— Jack Canfield
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves."

— Byron Katie
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Greet everyone you meet with a warm smile. No matter how busy you are, don't rush encounters with co-workers, family and friends. Speak softly. Listen attentively. Act as if every conversation you have is the most important thing on your mind today. Look your children and your partner in the eyes when they talk to you. Stroke the cat, caress the dog. 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"




"Listen to your heart. Cultivate the ability to do this. Practice it. Produce it. Perfect it. You think there is more to know about life than this, but there is not. Your heart holds the key. Your heart holds the wisdom. You heart holds the future."

— Neale Donald Walsch
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Truth must be told in a way it can be heard. If you want to ensure that people will hear you when you talk about difficult or uncomfortable situations, speak to them from your heart. Speak to them from a place of compassion and concern."

— Iyanla Vanzant
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

— 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."

— Unknown Author

"When you are standing at a crossroads in your life, realize that the greatest block that you can put in front of your Self is the idea that there is a 'right' choice."

"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."

— 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."

"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"

— 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

"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"

"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

— 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

"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

"Make a gift of your life and lift all mankind by being kind, considerate, forgiving, and compassionate at all times, in all places, and under all conditions, with everyone as well as yourself. This is the greatest gift anyone can give."

— 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."

— 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."

— 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."

— 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"

"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."

— Joel Osteen
in "Interesting Quotes"

— 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"




"Pain can only feed on pain. Pain cannot feed on joy. It finds it quite indigestible."

— Eckhart Tolle

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."

— Lao Tzu
in "Interesting Quotes"




"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
in "Interesting Quotes"




"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"

"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."

"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

"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."

— 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."

— 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."

"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."

"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"

"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.

— 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.

"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."

"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

— 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"

"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
in "Interesting Quotes"




"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."

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

"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."

"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."

"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.

— 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."

"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."

— Denis Waitley
in "Interesting Quotes"




"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."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"To forgive someone you believe has hurt, harmed, or violated you is no easy feat. However, doing so is a spiritual mandate for your healing, learning, and growth."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"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
in "Interesting Quotes"




"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."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"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
in "Interesting Quotes"




"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."

— Louise Hay

"I no longer agree to treat myself with disrespect. Every time a self-critical thought comes to mind, I will forgive the Judge and follow this comment with words of praise, self-acceptance, and love."

— 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."

— Osho
in "Interesting Quotes"




"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
in "Interesting Quotes"




"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
in "Interesting Quotes"




"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."

— Brian Tracy
in "Interesting Quotes"




"You know that prayer can get you into places you can't; prayer changes things. Even better, prayer changes people, and people change things. So go ahead and pray."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"Right now, can you give heartfelt thanks for the great, great, great day you are having? No matter what kind of day it has been so far? If you can, it will replace any less-than-great things with far better things tomorrow!"

— 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."

— Guru Singh
in "Interesting Quotes"




"There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires."

— Nelson Mandela
in "Interesting Quotes"




"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."

— Iyanla Vanzant
in "Interesting Quotes"




"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."

— E.E. Cummings
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
in "Interesting Quotes"




"If you see yourself now as you wish to be, and you walk, talk, and behave as the very best person you can imagine yourself being, your dominant thoughts and goals will materialize as your reality. You will become what you think about most of the time."

— Brian Tracy
in "Interesting Quotes"

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
