“Know Yourself”


“It’s dark because you are trying too hard.  Lightly child, lightly.  Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply.  Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them.  I was so preposterously serious in those days … Lightly, lightly – it’s the best advice ever given me … So throw away your baggage and go forward.  There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly.  Lightly my darling.”   (Aldous Huxley, Island)



“You are here to learn something.  Don’t try to figure out what it is.  This can be frustrating and unproductive.”   (Steven L. Peck, A Short Stay in Hell)



“The precept, ‘Know yourself,’ was not solely intended to obviate the pride of mankind; but likewise that we might understand our own worth.”   (Cicero)



“The soul creates, the mind reacts.  The soul understands what the mind cannot conceive. The soul speaks to you in feelings.  Listen … follow and honor your feelings.”   (Neale Donald Walsch)



“You are one thing only.  You are a Divine Being.  An all-powerful Creator.  You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was.”   (Anthony St. Maarten)



“Whatever we expect with confidence becomes our own self-fulfilling prophecy.”   (Brian Tracy)
