That’s a wonderful quote, I find that when I take ego out of the equation and focus on the joy of living all kinds of magical events occur, like love :)

Even though i went with a comment that could be perceived as aloof or sarcastic,i did so after considering other comments,but I guess I did so
kind of laughing at my quirky self.
Before I log off I thought I would post a quote from the buddha

just posted quote-pic of this on site… Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. ― Mahatma Gandhi. …resonates lots with me(:

“Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life.” Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
I find that in nurturing the gifts of the spirit there is not only complete joy in the action but immense satisfaction and peace, a state of bliss.

A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realize how blessed you are for what you have.
a livelifehappy.com quote

It’s one of my absolute favorites. In regard to the idea assuming …my spirit feels fragmented when I assume without having all parts of something… whether it be about a person, place or a thing. This quote reminds me about my inner truth and what makes me truly happy.

In regard to do more At this time in my life… I am more compassionate with myself and with regard to my focus for living. There have been times when I saw the words do more feeling like too much…leading to lack of ease or overwhelm….. Because I enjoy doing what it takes…and didn’t need to hear those ideas./Today, it is pleasurable because my spirit is so much more in harmony with my actions…And do more today…simply means keep doing the next right thing…moving forward…from right where I am, and its good.

and realize how blessed you are for what you have -part …OMG this part moves me on a gratitude and appreciation rampage(:
Thanks for this thread LakePlacid!

“Count your Blessings. Once you realize
how valuable you are and how much you have going for you,
the smiles will return, the sun will break out,
the music will play, and you will finally
be able to move forward the life that God intended
for you with grace, strength, courage, and confidence.”
Og Mandino
Bask in the glow of life, enjoy every moment of this amazing gift.

In response to Nancee1953’s post:
I was about to post a quote , though nah, want to pause and take in the gem you’ve shared… thanks Nancee!

How often do we begin to complicate things by simply forgetting the good that always is here? And its ‘almost’ comical that reminders are even needed…

I love quotes! They are often as wonderful as affirmations(:

Slow down. One of Gandhi’s most illuminating observations reminds us that there is more to life than increasing its speed. This is great advice for simplifying your life in fact, slow everything way down for a few moments right here and now. Slowly read these words. Slow your breathing down so that you’re aware of each inhalation and exhalation… Wayne Dyer

this is wonderful reinforcement!

WHAT YOU HAVE
BY DESIRING WHAT YOU
HAVE NOT; BUT

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

- Melody Beattie

“If you ever doubt the power of language, listen more closely. Witness the magic the first time someone whispers “i love you.” Watch a woman put on head phones, close her eyes, and have her life changed by a lyric. See a bad moment flipped upside down by a well timed joke. Words propel us, empower us, make us human and more than human. We constantly struggle to say what we mean and mean what we say. To “wrestle with words and meanings.” that’s what t.s. eliot calls it. But as we whisper and shout, stutter and spin, we create order out of the chaos around us. We are built of words, and we live by them, too.” ~-Hallmark

“There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others.”
― Mandy Hale

Here is one that truly resonated with me as well.

“If you are willing to look at another person’s behavior toward you as a reflection of the state of their relationship with themselves rather than a statement about your value as a person, then you will over a period of time cease to react at all.” Yogi Bhajan

 

 

I am realistic – I expect miracles Wayne Dyer

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” Helen Keller

“Celebrate! Celebration is an expression of Gratitude.
Gratitude is like the prayer, while
Celebration is the hymn and sacred dance.
Celebration is its own road to happiness.”

Jonathan Lockwood Huie

“There are nine requisites for contented living:

HEALTH enough to make work a pleasure;
WEALTH enough to support your needs;
STRENGTH enough to battle with difficulties and forsake them;
GRACE enough to confess your sins and overcome them;
PATIENCE enough to toil until some good is accomplished;
CHARITY enough to see some good in your neighbor;
LOVE enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others;
FAITH enough to make real the things of God;
HOPE enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered “Man…. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
- The Dalai Lama

Words are like seeds. When you write them out, they grow into your dreams and spark the imagination of others.

The greatest and most important problems of life are all fundamentally insoluble. They can never be solved but only outgrown. Carl Jung

Lately I’ve been loving this one. It reached my heart before my mind(:

My mind didn’t like problems were problems… and insoluble. Though my heart explained it to me…. We simply outgrow the things that seem to stand in our way, and poof… (or it seems that fast /grin) moving forward some more(:

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

Has anybody seen my perspective?
I’ve looked everywhere for it.
Have a look between your 3rd and 5th chakra.
Very funny!but if your referring to my heart chakra
I looked there already,nothing there but a dark void
of nothingness.

it isn’t a quote, though I didn’t write it, so maybe I can include it(:

“There is only one way to avoid critisism:do nothing,say nothing and be nothing”
Aristotle
That’s true,I wish it were not.
You could be the dali lama,or jesus christ no matter who you are or how much
common is in your sense,at least 25% of the peanut gallery will disagree with
your on any random thought.
And you could express something else on a completely different subject the
next day and the 25% that disagreed previously will agree,and the 75% that agreed
on the previous viewpoint will now disagree.

― Marcel Proust

“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”
― Thich Nhat Hanh

“I think that nothing is impossible when you want to fulfill a dream. A lot of people will tell you that you can’t do it, that you don’t have what it takes, but if it is in your heart and you feel it, there is nothing that will stop you. It is like the sun – you can’t block it: it will shine regardless, if that is what you want.” Thalia

“Gratitude is the music of the heart, when its chords are swept by the breeze of kindness.” ~Author Unknown

“My greatest service to others is living happily,
and radiating happiness and joy to those around me.”
Jonathan Lockwood Huie

yes, I like ― Marianne Williamson..(: Here are a couple of quotes from Return to Love.
“Dear God, I surrender this relationship to you,” means, “Dear God, let me see this person through your eyes.” In accepting the Atonement, we are asking to see as God sees, think as God thinks, love as God loves. We are asking for help in seeing someone’s innocence.”

  • ~
    “In asking for miracles, we are seeking a practical goal: a return to inner peace. We’re not asking for something outside us to change, but for something inside us to change. We’re looking for a softer orientation to life.”
  • ~

“Joy is the net of love by which you can catch souls.”
Saint Teresa of Kolkata

“If you think that no miracles ever happened to you, remember that every morning when you wake up, you experience a resurrection”
― Bangambiki Habyarimana

“Honest hearts produce honest actions. The more tranquil and humble you become, the greater your success, your influence, and the grace of GOD will forever abide wit you.”
Anne Nwakama

Gratitude, the skill of feeling and expressing appreciation, can be beneficially practiced on three levels of increasing difficulty: (1) for what is unexpected and wonderful; (2) for the positives in life that we often take for granted; and (3) for the various challenges that test our resolve and creativity and that often contain hidden blessings.
(UK Extension’s Universe of Possibilities)

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
John Fitzgerald Kennedy

“Live your truth. Express your love. Share your enthusiasm. Take action towards your dreams. Walk your talk. Dance and sing to your music. Embrace your blessings. Make today worth remembering.”

so virtue appears from good deeds,

one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.”

“I don’t know for sure what to beleive about
the world and all the hoopla,
this just in: I don’t have a crystal ball I can
refer to for clarity,the proverbial sky could
actually fall.
I simply am choosing to put my focus
on more positive thoughts one day at a time.
I know that sounds irrational,maybe even crazy
No argument,I was considering changing
my name to R P McMurphy anyway”

“I have recently been able to see the new world – the quiet, the tranquility and the freedom it will bring with it. This is very comforting knowledge for me because I already know that what I envision eventually becomes a reality.” Shari Arison

“Happiness will come
Today, tomorrow and every year
Now, then and every moment
For if, we learn to love, care and share.
Happiness will come
To fill our heart with kindness
It is a gift from the universe
To touch our life with joyful silence.
Happiness will come
For if we know, wealth and splendors are illusion
But attainment of certain mental state,
And Unconditional love is a real possession.”
― Debasish Mridha

Your asking me?I don’t even know where we are.

And stubbornly refuse to fit in.”

“These are the few ways we can practice humility:

To speak as little as possible of one’s self.
To mind one’s own business.
Not to want to manage other people’s affairs.
To avoid curiosity.
To accept contradictions and correction cheerfully.
To pass over the mistakes of others.
To accept insults and injuries.
To accept being slighted, forgotten and disliked.
To be kind and gentle even under provocation.
Never to stand on one’s dignity.
To choose always the hardest.”
