|Sayings for the Spirit & Soul
Stand UP & Speak OUT!
Your Silence Will Not Protect You--Audre Lorde
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in the bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom ~ Anais Nin
|Compassion is |
rather than something you
do on occasion. Gregg Braden
|When I dare to be powerful to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid. -- Poet Andre Lorde|
|You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.|
|As you continue to send out love, the energy returns to you in a regenerating spiral...As love accumulates, it keeps your system in balance and harmony. |
Love is the tool, and more love is the end product.
Sara Paddison, Hidden Power of the Heart
|It is |
our task - our essential, central, crucial task - to transform ourselves from
mere social creatures into community creatures.
It is the only way human evolution will be able to proceed.
|If we believe in the rebirth of our civilization... then clearly this renaissance must begin in the chambers of our own hearts... We cannot wait for society to change, or for our institutions to be renewed. We, as individuals, must assume responsibility for our own personal transformation. |
Praise bright blue skies and dark rain clouds;
Lift Happy Voices upon morning air.
Murmur sweet words softly in the evening breeze.
Be present in ALL things,
And thankful for all things. -- Maya Angelou
Life is pure adventure,
and the sooner we realize that,
the sooner we will be able to treat life as art.
-- Maya Angelou
|Fear and love are contradictory.|
Love is reckless in giving away,
oblivious as to what it gets in return.
Love wrestles with the world as with the self
and ultimately gains mastery over all other feelings.
My daily experience...is that every problem
lends itself to solution if we are determined
to make the law of truth and non-violence the law of life.
For truth and non-violence are, to me,
faces of the same coin.
The law of love will work,
just as the law of gravitation will work,
whether we accept it or not...The more I work at this law
the more I feel the delight in life,
the delight in the scheme of this universe.
It gives me a peace and a meaning of the mysteries of nature
that I have no power to describe.
-Mohandas K. Gandhi
