Every Situation In Life

” Every situation in life is temporary. So, when life is good, make sure you enjoy and receive it fully. And when life is not so good, remember that it will not last forever and better days are on the way. “  -Bruce Lee

Everything Is Within

” There is nothing outside of yourself that can ever enable you to get better, stronger, richer, quicker, or smarter. Everything is within. Everything exists. Seek nothing outside of yourself. “

-Miyamoto Musashi

 

Fear And Love Quote

” There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life. ”

-John Lennon

Truth And Love Quote

One of my favorite Martin Luther King Jr. quotes that I thought I would share again for this day. 🙂

” I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. ”

– Martin Luther King Jr.

True Self Quote

” True self is non-self, the awareness that the self is made only of non-self elements. There’s no separation between self and other, and everything is interconnected. Once you are aware of that you are no longer caught in the idea that you are a separate entity. ”

– Thich Nhat Hanh

Truth Has No Path Quote

” Truth has no path. Truth is living and, therefore, changing. Awareness is without choice, without demand, without anxiety; in that state of mind, there is perception. To know oneself is to study oneself in action with another person. Awareness has no frontier; it is giving of your whole being, without exclusion. ”

– Bruce Lee

Greatest Happiness In Life Quote

” We need to move into a culture of peace. What I hope to promote is the idea that we all need each other and that the greatest happiness in life is not how much we have but how much we give. That’s a wealth that’s priceless. You can’t buy compassion. ”

– Herbie Hancock

The Dream Quote

” The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was conscience ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscience ego could ever reach. ”

– Carl Jung

Three Treasures Quote

” I have three treasures. Guard and keep them: The first is deep love, the second is frugality, And the third is not to dare to be ahead of the world. Because of deep love, one is courageous. Because of frugality, one is generous. Because of not daring to be ahead of the world, one becomes the leader of the world. ”

– Lao Tzu

Hatred Quote

” Hatred is corrosive of a person’s wisdom and conscience; the mentality of enmity can poison a nation’s spirit, instigate brutal life and death struggles, destroy a society’s tolerance and humanity, and block a nation’s progress to freedom and democracy ”

– Liu Xiaobo

Truth And Love Quote

” I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. ”

– Martin Luther King Jr.

Moving And Not Moving Quote

“I’m moving and not moving at all. I’m like the moon underneath the waves that ever go on rolling and rocking. It is not, “I am doing this,” but rather, an inner realization that “this is happening through me,” or “it is doing this for me.” The consciousness of self is the greatest hindrance to the proper execution of all physical action.”

– Bruce Lee

The Master Quote

” Great master Lao Tzu says that ‘ The master has no possessions. The more he does for others, the happier he is. The more he gives to others, the wealthier he is.’ Giving is indeed a very good source of happiness! One of the best treasures a man can give to someone is a good and sound idea; because birds can ascend into the sky only with wings, and men, with good and sound ideas! “

– Mehmet Murat Ildan

Awake Quote

“Love yourself and be awake –

today, tomorrow, always.

First establish yourself in the way,

then teach others,

and so defeat sorrow.

To straighten the crooked

you must first do a harder thing –

straighten yourself.

You are the only master. Who else?

Subdue yourself,

and discover your master. ”

-Buddha

Your Mind Quote

” The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive. To put it more accurately, it is not so much that you use your mind wrongly — you usually don’t use it at all. It uses you. This is the disease. You believe that you are your mind. This is the delusion. The instrument has taken you over. “

-Eckhart Tolle

Light Quote

“It doesn’t matter how long we may have been stuck in the sense of our limitations. If we go into a darkened room and turn on the light, it doesn’t matter if the room has been dark for a day, a week, or ten thousand years — we turn on the light and it is illuminated. Once we control our capacity for love and happiness, the light has been turned on.”

– Sharon Salzberg

Your Eyes

“Good Lord Boyet, my beauty, though but mean,

Needs not the painted flourish of your praise:

Beauty is bought by judgement of the eye,

Not utter’d by base sale of chapmen’s  tongues.”

-William Shakespeare

The persistent problem people face everyday is the illusion of the way one looks in the eyes of others. Sacrificing ones self worth for the gratifying feeling that comes from the judgement of others from which ones life and happiness depends upon. Being yourself becomes a rarity and not a formality.

Then who you are becomes what others see you as. This is the illusion put onto you by the judgement of others, and this illusion will even fool you to believe that this is who you really are. The way you dress, the way you look, the way you view things, the way you treat others is then dictated by this illusion of truth projected to you by this judgment of others.

You will find out the real truth about the beautiful person you really are and the world around you when you begin living your life in the beauty that only your eyes can see and your heart can feel.  Not by others who place judgement on your life that is not their own. Only you can dictate what beauty is, only you can dictate what beauty was, and it is you who can only dictate what beauty will be through your eyes only. The illusions of judgment will fade away and the beauty of your truth will only remain.

Positivity Quote

 “People tend to be generous when sharing their nonsense, fear, and ignorance. And while they seem quite eager to feed you their negativity, please remember that sometimes the diet we need to be on is a spiritual and emotional one. Be cautious with what you feed your mind and soul. Fuel yourself with positivity and let that fuel propel you into positive action.”

– Steve Maraboli

Happy And Free Quote

” As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery. We have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace. The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as anger and attachment, fear and suspicion, while love and compassion, a sense of universal responsibility are the sources of peace and happiness. ”

-Dalai Lama

Fear Quote

” Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. “

-Frank Herbert

True Happiness Quote

” True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not. ”

-Seneca

Ego Quote

” The Self is the internal abundance that can be realized at our will any time. It is capable of lifting us up from difficulties particularly during moments of stress, frustration, nervousness and duress. It has the power to nourish, nurture, absorb and inspire. All we need is to have faith and surrender our ego-self to the higher Self. The challenge we face, therefore, is not in allowing the Self to take charge but in surrendering ego-self. It is fear that keeps the ego intact, preventing its surrender. Our ego-self survives and feeds on our fears, miseries, doubts, compulsions, obsessions and cravings which are nothing but self-created but that appears real. With continuous use, they have become our mindset. We tend to derive solace in them even if the payoff is pain. ”

-Dhruva Bhargava

The ego is the most destructive force you have inside you that most are not aware of. Ego is tied to greed, selfishness, vanity, fear, paranoia just to name a few. It is never satisfied, a bottomless pit that can never be filled.

 

Choice and Power Quote

“Any change, any loss, does not make us victims. Others can shake you, surprise you, disappoint you, but they can’t prevent you from acting, from taking the situation you’re presented with and moving on. No matter where you are in life, no matter what your situation, you can always do something. You always have a choice and the choice can be power.”

-Blaine Lee

Be Yourself

“The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.”

Anna Quindlen

Concentrating on being someone other than yourself gives you a false sense of being. Just because you walk the path of others does not mean you can fill the shoes they walk in. The path you choose to take in your life can only be walked in your shoes and your shoes only. The only perfection that exists is that we are imperfect. It seems to me that there are lots of people that have a fear of being ridiculed for being themselves or just being different in general. This world is a beautiful place with different beautiful people, being different should be encouraged and not frowned upon.

Being yourself gives you the power to choose your own destiny and have your own visions to impact your own life in great ways. Its always good to have role models and people you look up to and want to be like, just make sure if you walk the same path to wear your own shoes and not to try and fill theirs.

 

Self reflection quote

“If you look into your own heart, and you find nothing wrong there, what is there to worry about? What is there to fear?” 

-Confucius

By really understanding yourself you get a true view of your heart. Within your heart you see your love, and within your love you see your true self.

Doubt Quote

” There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.” 

-Gautama Buddha

There is nothing more debilitating than self doubt. It cripples your thought and progress though life and is not needed in the minds and thoughts of people that want to succeed in everything they do in life. A positive approach to everything you do is essential to over coming anything that life throws at you.  Positive thoughts and attitude bring positive results. Believe in yourself first and foremost because you are the conductor and creator of your own life and the results are the reality you make of it.

Compassion quote

“Compassion has nothing to do with achievement at all. It is spacious and very generous. When a person develops real compassion, he is uncertain whether he is being generous to others or to himself because compassion is environmental generosity, without direction, without ” for me” and without ” for them”. It is filled with joy, spontaneously existing joy, constant joy in the sense of trust, in the sense that joy contains tremendous wealth, richness.”
