You already are what you want to be

Underneath all of our public personas, we already are that which we desire to be. Our only job is to see past our own limitations so that we can return to that which we already are.

Debbie Ford, The Best Year of Your Life

Prepare for providence

Providence has its appointed hour for everything. We cannot command results, we can only strive.

Mohandas Gandhi

I do not like your Christians

I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

Karmic healing

There's no accident in who we are attracted to and why we married them. It's in the seeds of our karma. Every person we attract into our lives is there to move us to the next phase of our personal evolution. They behave in whatever manner is necessary to show us the places where we need healing and make us confront the issues that prevent us from fulfilling our potential. When we take full responsibility for our lives, we understand that the relationships we find ourselves in are not mere accidents, but custom-designed opportunities to heal our emotional and spiritual wounds.

Be courageous

And when we speak we are afraid our words will not be heard nor welcome, but when we are silent we are still afraid. So it is better to speak remembering we were never meant to survive.

Feed the white dog

There is a story in Native American history of an Indian chief who one night talking to his tribe tells them there are two dogs inside his mind. One a white dog who is good and courageous, the other a black dog who is vengeful and spiteful. He tells the tribe the dogs are fighting to the death. A brave, not able to wait for the end of the story asks "Which one of them will win?" The chief responds "The one I feed."

When words fail, listen

No one offers the name of a philosopher when asked the question, "Who helped you most?" Most often they answer by describing a quiet, unassuming person -- someone who was there whenever needed, who listened more than talked, who didn't keep glancing down at a watch, who hugged and touched, and cried; someone who was available, and met on the sufferer's terms, not their own.
