The Self to Trust

The Self to Trust

“To trust yourself!  To have faith and confidence in your own vision!  To believe that you are aligned with a Power that is greater than you are.  These are the dynamic attitudes of mind that will give dignity and enthusiasm to your individuality, purpose to your vision, and certainty of accomplishment.” – Ernest Holmes

what will you become when you discover Stillness

will you be an artist in love with his painting
absorbed into the scene, transported?

All of a sudden soaring as the eagle, diving as the dew drop to the earth.
absorbed
blissfully in love.

A Path of Heart

A Path of Heart

“Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question:  Does this path have a heart?  If it does, then the path is good.  If it doesn’t, it is of no use.”  —  Carlos Castaneda

Patterns of Stories

Patterns of Stories

“So the story of man runs in a dreary circle, because he is not yet master of the earth that holds him.” – Will Durant

“There are only patterns, patterns on top of patterns, patterns that affect other patterns. Patterns hidden by patterns. Patterns within patterns. If you watch close, history does nothing but repeat itself. What we call chaos is just patterns we haven’t recognized. What we call random is just patterns we can’t decipher. What we can’t understand we call nonsense. What we can’t read we call gibberish. There is no free will. There are no variables.” – Chuck Palahniuk, Survivor

Your Journey

Your Journey

“Your journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don’t think that you’ve lost time. There is no short-cutting to life. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time.” – Asha Tyson

Turiya

Turiya

I’m cruising through the milky way

My headlights burning bright

Leaving tracks across the galaxy

And stardust in the night.

I’m shooting through a bubbling sea

Of stars and space and time

And roaring ’round the Universe

With nothing on my mind.

 

My craft throws flames and jet spray

Bursting flashes in the sky

Washing white the soundless borders

Of great floating nebulae.

And I feel an awesome power

And hear great melodic strains

As I bank against the farthest light

And head back home again.

 

Oh! to trip the light fantastic

Past the charted realms of man

Is to drink the draughts of ecstasy

And to see a greater Plan

Which guides the hand of destiny,

Illuminates the skies,

Gives thrust to our trajectory,

And validates our lives.

 

Felix Bliss

Life Happens for You

Life Happens for You

” Life is simple. Everything happens for you, not to you.  Everything happens at exactly the right moment, neither too soon nor too late.
You don’t have to like it… it’s just easier if you do.”  –  Byron Katie

The Road Not Taken

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

The Road Not Taken – BY ROBERT FROST

“ Two roads diverged in a wood, and I –
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”

A Quiet Mind

A Quiet Mind

“A quiet mind is all you need. All else will happen rightly, once your mind is quiet. As the sun on rising makes the world active, so does self-awareness affect changes in the mind. In the light of calm and steady self-awareness inner energies wake up and work miracles without effort on your part.” ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
