“There is Nothing But Love”

 

“Soon after her brother was born, little Sachi began to ask her parents to leave her alone with the new baby.  They worried that like most four-year-olds, she might feel jealous and want to hit or shake him, so they said no.  But she showed no signs of jealousy.  She treated the baby with kindness and her pleas to be left alone with him became more urgent.  They decided to allow it.  Elated, she went into the baby’s room and shut the door, but it opened a crack – enough for her curious parents to peek in and listen.  They saw little Sachi walk quietly up to her baby brother, put her face close to his and say quietly …

‘Baby, tell me what God feels like.  I’m starting to forget.’”     (Dan Millman)

“There are No ‘Good’ or ‘Bad’ People. / Nobody Sees Anybody Truly”

 

“You know, what strikes me is how desperately we all need to know that we are seen and heard.  We don’t need our lives to be different, or easier, we just need someone to see the pain.  To know what we’ve faced and overcome.  To say: Yes. I see this.  This is real.  We don’t need a magician to take it all away – we just need a witness.”   (Glennon Doyle Melton)

“If one of us could ascend to the heavenly realm and for a few hours accompany the Divine on His daily rounds, he would see below millions of his fellow humans busily hurling themselves into the passions, sports, and actions of the moment — all the while seemingly oblivious of those around him.

But if our observer had the power … he would also feel and sense, pulsing through and vibrating from every one of us here below a desperate and unending plea, ‘Notice me! I want to be known, admired, and loved by the whole world!’

And it is this; this glorious weakness, this dependence of us on each other that makes some of us heroes, and some of us fools – and most of us heroes and fools at the same time!”   (Rev. Michael Burry)

“There are no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ people.  Some are a little better or a little worse, but all are activated more by misunderstanding than malice.  A blindness to what is going on in each other’s hearts… nobody sees anybody truly but all through the flaws of their own egos.  That is the way we all see … each other in life.  Vanity, fear, desire, competition— all such distortions within our own egos — condition our vision of those in relation to us.  Add to those distortions to our own egos the corresponding distortions in the egos of others, and you see how cloudy the glass must become through which we look at each other.  That’s how it is in all living relationships except when there is that rare case of two people who love intensely enough to burn through all those layer of opacity and see each other’s naked hearts.  Such cases seem purely theoretical to me…”   (Tennessee Williams)

“If you can imagine it, you can have it.  This is the name of the game.  This is the lesson to learn.  It couldn’t be any easier.  Reality is not what your eyes show your mind, but what your mind creates for your eyes to see.  You are not limited by logic, the past, or the world around you. You are not of the world around you.  You are supernatural, pure spirit.

You came first.  Magic, miracles, and luck are the consequences of understanding this, the inevitable result of dreaming and acting in spite of appearances.

You are ever so close.  Simply stay the course.  It won’t be very much longer.  If you can imagine it, you can have it.   Soul-Power, (signed) The Universe”     (Notes from The Universe, Mike Dooley, July 7, 2016)

It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.”   (Tony Robbins)

“No one’s life should be rooted in fear.  We are born for wonder, for joy, for hope, for love, to marvel at the mystery of existence, to be ravished by the beauty of the world, to seek truth and meaning, to acquire wisdom, and by our treatment of others to brighten the corner where we are.”   (Dean Koontz, Life Expectancy)
