Develop the mind of equilibrium. You will always be getting praise and blame, but do not let either affect the poise of the mind: follow the calmness, the absence of pride.

Sutta Nipata

Those who argue and discuss without understanding the truth are lost amid all the forms of relative knowledge, running about here and there and trying to justify their view of the substance of ego. If you realize the self in your inmost consciousness, it will appear in its purity. This is the womb of wonder, which is not the realm of those who live only by reason.

If you're not sure where you're going, you'll probably end up lost.


If you don't care where you are then you're not lost.


Choices... Each morning I wake up and say to myself you have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or you can choose to be in a bad mood. I choose to be in a good mood. Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or ... I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it. Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or ... I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life. Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people will affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. The bottom line: It's your choice how you live life. Work like you don't need the money, Love like you've never been hurt, Dance like nobody's watching!

Don't be sad that it ended, be happy that it happened.


Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us. We ask ourselves, who are we to be brilliant? Gorgeous? Talented? Fabulous? Actually, who are you NOT to be? You are a child of Earth. Your playing small does not save the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of the spirit that's within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we uncounsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others.

Nelson Mandela
