“Every Morning We Are Born Again / Live Each Moment in Full”


“Every morning we are born again.  What we do today is what matters most.”   (Buddha)



“Hello babies.  Welcome to Earth.  It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter.  It’s round and wet and crowded.  On the outside, babies, you’ve got a hundred years here.  There’s only one rule that I know of, babies — G** damn it, you’ve got to be kind.”   (Kurt Vonnegut, ‘God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater’)



“A lifetime is not what’s between

The moments of birth and death.

A lifetime is one moment

between my two little breaths.

The present, the here, the now,

That’s all the life I get,

I live each moment in full,

In kindness, in peace, without regret.”   (Chade Menge)



“My whole teaching consists of two words, meditation and love.  Meditate so that you can feel immense silence, and love so that your life can become a song, a dance, a celebration. You will have to move between the two, and if you can move easily, if you can move without any effort, you have learned the greatest thing in life.”   (Osho, Come, Come, Yet Again Come)



“What holds most people back isn’t the quality of their ideas, but their lack of faith in themselves.  You have to live your life as if you are already where you want to be.”   (Russell Simmons – Do You!)



“When you run after your thoughts, you are like a dog chasing a stick.  Every time a stick is thrown, you run after it.  Instead, be like a lion who, rather than chasing after the stick, turns to face the thrower.  One only throws a stick at a lion once.”  (Milarepa)
