Quote of the day

"That the birds of worry and care fly over your head, this you cannot change, but that they build nests in your hair, this you can prevent."
- Chinese Proverb -

Maintaining thoughts of worry and anticipating disasters somewhere in the future, instead of enjoying every aspect of the present moment, is a clear path to self destruction. Or as Mark Twain said: "I've had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened."

The power of a teacup

It is a bit long, but it is totally worth it to listen to it. 


Quote of the day

"We must shift our allegiances from fear to curiosity, from attachment to letting go, from control to trust, and from entitlement to humility."
- Angeles Arrien -

As it is pointed out, shifting our allegiances and combating the wrong self beliefs that are equivalent with personal truth will dramatically change the quality of our own life. But to boldly go there, you need courage, and while sometimes it can be born out of desperation, it is more important to do it as a voluntary choice.

Quote of the day

"Ultimately, the only power to which man should aspire is that which he exercises over himself."
- Elie Wiesel -

And to extend this idea a bit more, we can choose the same approach towards competitiveness. I know it is hard to do it, but in order to achieve peace of the mind, it is better to compare the Us from Now'' with the 'Us from Yesterday'. Not to compare with others. This is how we grow, healthy and care free.

Repetition

- You are nothing but a big child,
In perfect touch with your innocence,
The angel told me.
- I am nothing but a big child,
In perfect touch with my innocence,
I repeated.
- You are playful light,
You are fire and lightning
You are perfect.
- I am playful light,
I am fire and lightning
I am perfect.
- My job is done here,
The angel said.
- Your job is done here,
I said, and I opened my eyes.

Quote of the day

"Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness."
- Desmond Tutu -

Hope will get us out from our darkest hours, and we need not to forget that our biology is influenced by our emotions, and while we choose to linger in depressive thoughts or accept a bad mood, it is entirely in our power to change instantly, in a heartbeat, and become active, open to the beauty existing around us, becoming a pillar to sustain the other people that were affected in the same time. A bad time make some thieves, some heroes. And it is only your choice that will finally define you.
