“When I Do Good, I Feel Good”

 

“I’d always believed that a life of quality, enjoyment, and wisdom were my human birthright and would be automatically bestowed upon me as time passed. I never suspected that I would have to learn how to live – that there were specific disciplines and ways of seeing the world I had to master before I could awaken to a simple, happy, uncomplicated life.”   (Dan Millman)

“There are times in our lives when, momentarily, we are illumined.  We see that everything follows a pattern and that pattern fits together beautifully.

We don’t always feel this way of course.  We all occasionally have ‘one of those days,’ but we also have days, moments and hours in which we see that all the right things have happened, that our lives have unfolded just as they should, that we have been given just what we needed.

This kind of seeing is recognizing the pattern, and this recognition is knowing that, at the center everything is connected, is tied together by love.”    (365 Days of Love, Daphne Rose Kingma, Conari Press)

“Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes.  Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly.  Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end.  What seems nasty, painful, evil can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind.  Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.”   (Henry Miller)

“For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself:  ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’  And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”  (Steve Jobs)

________ 

 

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror.  I can take the next thing that comes along.’  You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”  (Eleanor Roosevelt)

________ 

 

“When I do good, I feel good; when I do bad, I feel bad, and that is my religion.”   (Abraham Lincoln)
