“A Statement As to Our Purpose”

 

“I exist, I am, I am here, I am becoming, I make my own life and no one else makes it for me.  I must face my own shortcomings, mistakes, transgressions. No one can suffer my non-being as I do, but tomorrow is another day, and I must decide to leave my bed and live again.  And if I fail, I don’t have the comfort of blaming you or life or God. ”   (Leo Buscaglia, Living Loving and Learning)

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are.  You trade in your reality for a role.  You trade in your sense for an act.  You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask.  There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level.  It’s got to happen inside first.”    (Jim Morrison)

“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.

People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed.  Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.”    (Sam Levenson)

“The whole system that we live in drills into us that we’re powerless, that we’re weak, that our society is evil, that it’s fragmented.

It’s all a big fat lie.

We are powerful, beautiful, extraordinary.

There is no reason why we cannot understand who we truly are, where we are going.

There is no reason why the average individual cannot be fully empowered.

We are incredibly powerful beings.”   (Zeitgeist, ‘spirit of the time’)

________

 

“Each of our acts makes a statement as to our purpose.”   (Leo Buscaglia)
