If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong -Masaru Emoto, Secret Life of Water
I urge you, ask you, gentle you, to please not spend your spirit dry by bewailing these difficult times. Especially do not lose hope. Most particularly because, the fact is, we were made for these times -Clarissa Pinkola Estes
May you travel in an awakened way, Gathered wisely into your inner ground, that you may not waste the invitations which wait along the way to transform you -John O'Donohue (art by daniel gebhart de koekkoek)
Our first move, you see, in spirit is always to transcend. We always want to go straight to the light. My own experience was of going up and then down and then not knowing which way was which after a while. We have to let in the opposites, hold the very small parts of who we are along with the rather grand, eternal parts of who we are and not let one take over -John Tarrant Soul (photo by Fabrizio Ferri)
. August 8, 2015 . The Lion's Gate 8:8:8 . The number 8 is associated with harmony, balance, abundance and power. When placed on its side, the 8 becomes the symbol for infinity ∞ or infinite potential. It's a time for the Union of the opposites, the heart and mind, masculine and feminine, and the beautiful creativity and wholeness that comes with that balance, integration of the Christ Consciousness.
Reality is what we take to be true. What we take to be true is what we believe. What we believe is based upon our perceptions. What we perceive depends upon what we look for. What we look for depends upon what we think. What we think depends upon what we perceive. What we perceive determines what we believe. What we believe determines what we take to be true. What we take to be true is our reality • Gary Zukav
The central idea is our soul or consciousness is an eternal energy which uses the physical planes of existence to learn about itself so that it can continue to expand its awareness and evolve with the ever changing energies of the universe.
The only way you will ever awaken is through silence, not through analyzation of facts. Not by sorting out good and bad, but through simple silence, letting go. Letting go of all thoughts, all the hurts, all the dogmas and concepts. Letting go of these things daily —Robert Adams
Quantum physics shows us that the world is not the hard and unchangeable thing it may appear to be. Instead, it is a very fluid place continuously built up using our individual and collective thoughts. What we think is true is really an illusion, almost like a magic trick. Fortunately we have begun to uncover the illusion and most importantly, how to change it ~Spirit Science
The best indicator of your level of consciousness is how you deal with life's challenges when they come. Through those challenges, an already unconscious person tends to become more deeply unconscious, and a conscious person more intensely conscious. You can use a challenge to awaken you, or you can allow it to pull you into even deeper sleep -Eckhart Tolle
Be wild. That is how to clear the river. The river does not flow in, polluted, we manage that. The river does not dry up, we block it. We have to allow our ideational lives to be let loose, to stream, letting anything come, initially censoring nothing. That is creative life. It is made up of divine paradox. To create one must be willing to be stone stupid, to sit upon a throne on top of a jackass and spill rubies from one’s mouth ―Clarissa Pinkola Estés
