Re: Affirmation and Quotes

I know this is not an "uplifting" quote but it made me laugh this morning. This is from my cousin after I asked him about family history of adhd and how hard it is to focus and meditate when you also have kids with adhd:

"Ya that's the thing about monks. Finding Nirvana out in some bamboo forest? Big deal. Get to the happy place in minvan full of kids on the way to soccer and I'll be impressed."

"You say you are still not stable in presence.
But if that ‘I’ that is not stable in presence is a person,
of course no person is stable.
What watches the person?
Don’t be the person.
Observe the person.
Remain as presence." ~Mooji

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

“The things we need most are the things we have become most afraid of, such as adventure, intimacy, and authentic communication.

We avert our eyes and stick to comfortable topics.

We hold it as a virtue to be private, to be discreet, so that no one sees our dirty laundry.

We are uncomfortable with intimacy and connection, which are among the greatest of our unmet needs today.

To be truly seen and heard, to be truly known, is a deep human need.

Our hunger for it is so omnipresent, so much apart of our life experience, that we no more know what it is missing than a fish knows it is wet.

We need more intimacy than nearly anyone considers normal.

Always hungry for it, we seek solace and sustenance in the closest available substitutes: television, shopping, pornography, conspicuous consumption — anything to ease the hurt, to feel connected, or to project an image by which we might be seen or known, or at least see and know ourselves.” ~Charles Eisenstein

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

Love this so much. Think of it often:

Moments

by Mary Oliver
There are moments that cry out to be fulfilled.

Like, telling someone you love them.

Or giving your money away, all of it.
Your heart is beating, isn't it?

You're not in chains, are you?

There is nothing more pathetic than caution

when headlong might save a life,

even, possibly, your own.

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

“Heart’s blood and bitter pain belong to love,
And tales of problems no one can remove;
Cupbearer, fill the bowl with blood, not wine -
And if you lack the heart’s rich blood take mine.
Love thrives on inextinguishable pain,
Which tears the soul, then knits the threads again.
A mote of love exceeds all bounds; it gives
The vital essence to whatever lives.
But where love thrives, there pain is always found;
Angels alone escape this weary round -
They love without that savage agony
Which is reserved for vexed humanity.”
~فرید الدین عطار, The Conference of the Birds
