With freedom, books, flowers and the moon, who could not be happy?
You have to be your own teacher and your own disciple.
You have to question everything that man has accepted as valuable, as necessary.
And then the day came when the pain to remain closed tight in a bud became more than the pain it took to blossom.
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field,
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase "each other" doesn't make any sense.
We cannot ask if it will help the future.
We can only ask what's right and good,
and go on out and do it.
Understand through compassion,
or you will misunderstand the times.
The one you are looking for is the one who is looking.
Francis of Assisi
This is what you should do: love the earth and sun and the animals,
despise riches, give alms to everyone that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy,
devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants,
argue not concerning God,
have patience and indulgence toward the people,
take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men …
re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book,
dismiss what insults your own soul,
and your very flesh shall be a great poem.
Authenticity is the daily practice
of letting go of who we think we're supposed to be,
and embracing who we are.
I slept and dreamt that life was joy.
I awoke and saw that life was service.
I acted and behold, service is joy.
We are shaped by each other.
We adjust not to the reality of a world, but to the reality of other thinkers.
Joseph Chilton Pearce
I do not fix problems.
I fix thinking.
Then problems fix themselves.
Peace Begins With Me
may the sun bring you new energy by day,
may the moon softly restore you by night,
may the rain wash away your worries,
may the breeze blow new strength into your being,
may you walk gently through the world
and know its' beauty all the days of your life.
Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.
