“We Are Here to Do”


“If there’s something special you want to do, now is the time … if you want to make a difference in the world, now is the time.  Don’t be fooled into thinking you should wait until you are older or wiser or more ‘secure’ – because it doesn’t work that way.  The wisdom will come.  The security will come.  But first you must begin your adventure.”     (Ron Atchison)



“You are goodness and mercy and compassion and understanding. You are peace and joy and light.  You are forgiveness and patience, strength and courage, a helper in time of need, a comforter in time of sorrow, a healer in time of injury, a teacher in times of confusion.  You are the deepest wisdom and the highest truth; the greatest peace and the grandest love.  You are these things.  And in moments of your life you have known yourself as these things.  Choose now to know yourself as these things always.”     (Neale Donald Walsch)



“The great teachings unanimously emphasize that all the peace, wisdom, and joy in the universe are already within us; we don’t have to gain, develop, or attain them.  We’re like a child standing in a beautiful park with his eyes shut tight.  We don’t need to imagine trees, flowers, deer, birds, and sky; we merely need to open our eyes and realize what is already here, who we really are.”     (Bo Lozoff)



“We are here to do;

and through doing to learn;

and through learning to know;

and through knowing to experience wonder;

and through wonder to attain wisdom;

and through wisdom to find simplicity;

and through simplicity to give attention;

and through attention to see what needs to be done.”     (from the ‘Pirkei Avot’)
