Quote of the Day: Richard Miller

“Meditation doesn’t involve transcending your humanness. It entails recognizing and living from your essential nature, which is already and always unbounded, whole, loving, compassionate, awake, and perfect just as it is, in the midst of the circumstances of your life. True meditation enables you to recover and experience your innate sense of wellbeing, and supports […]

Thich Naht Hahn Quote

“When we respect our blood ancestors and spiritual ancestors, we feel rooted. If we can find ways to cherish and develop our spiritual heritage we will avoid the kind of alienation that is destroying society and we will become whole again. We must encourage others, especially young people, to go back to their traditions and […]

Alan Alda Quote

” Listening does not take place unless you are willing to be changed.  Otherwise, you are just waiting for an opening to talk.”  –Alan Alda   The most interesting thing about this statement from Alan Alda is that you won’t ever understand the quote until you truly know what it means to listen.  Often times, […]

Pema Chodron Quote

In her book, Comfortable with Uncertainty, Pema Chodron discusses the importance of humor and openness towards ourselves as we begin the work to undo all of the past agreements we have made in our lives that have caused us suffering. “Learning how to be kind to ourselves is important. When we look into our own […]

Wayne Dyer ROCKS!

“That music that you hear inside of you urging you to take risks and follow your dreams is your intuitive connection to the purpose in your heart since birth. Be enthusiastic about all that you do. Have that passion with the awareness that the word enthusiasm literally means ‘the God (enthos) within (iasm).’ Don’t die […]

Another lesson in karma

“The more you struggle to live, the less you live. Give up the notion that you must be sure that you know what you are doing. Instead, surrender to what is real within you, for that alone is sure.” – Baruch Spinoza To be honest, I have struggled quite a bit lately with the city […]

John O’Donohue Quote

“When love awakens in your life, in the night of your heart, it is like the dawn breaking within you. Where before there was anonymity, now there is intimacy; where before there was fear, now there is courage; where before in your life there was awkwardness, now there is a rhythm of grace and gracefulness; […]

Pema Chodron Quote

“When people start to meditate or to work with any kind of spiritual discipline, they often think that somehow they’re going to improve, which is a sort of subtle aggression against who they really are. It’s a bit like saying, “If I jog, I’ll be a much better person.” “If I could only get a […]

Dalai Lama Quote

We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us, and make us kinder. We always have the choice. This to me is what the forth agreement is all about – “always do your best”.  Choosing love over fear takes […]

Buddha Quote

“There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships.” I caught myself in the midst of raging doubt this week about a new friendship.  The doubt stemmed from wondering if this person was really worth being friends with.  We have all had those conversations […]

Robert Frost Quote

“In three words, I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: IT GOES ON.” Sometimes, in the midst of grieving a loss, or the onset of depression of some kind, our lives seem to stop.  In a sense, we stop noticing life happening around us because we are waiting to re-engage with the world […]

Robert Ingersoll Quote

I’m still on my kick that optimism is just a keen form of denial…… “The notion that faith in Christ is to be rewarded by an eternity of bliss, while a dependence upon reason, observation, and experience merits everlasting pain, is too absurd for refutation, and can be believed only by that unhappy mixture of […]

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross Quote

“The opinion which other people have of you is their problem, not yours.”  ― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, On Life After Death In other words, do not make choices based on what other people think – you cannot control, nor change another’s thoughts, words or actions.  At the end of the day, you only have to live with yourself.
