Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"The glorification of busy will destroy us. Without space for healing, without time for reflection, without an opportunity to surrender, we risk a complete disconnect from the authentic self.

We burn out on the fuels of willfulness, and eventually cannot find our way back to center. And when we lose contact with our core, we are ripe for the picking by the unconscious media and other market forces.

After all, consumerism preys on the uncentered. The farther we are from our intuitive knowing, the more easily manipulated we are. The more likely we are to make decisions and affix to goals that don’t serve our healing and transformation.

To combat this, we have to form the conscious intention to prioritize our inner life. To notice our breath, our bodies, our feelings. To step back from the fires of overwhelm and remember ourselves. It may feel counter-intuitive in a culture that is speed-addicted, but the slower we move, the faster our return home." ~Jeff Brown

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"Tell a wise person, or else keep silent,
because the mass man will mock it right away.

I praise what is truly alive,
what longs to be burned to death.

In the calm water of the love-nights,
where you were begotten, where you have begotten,
a strange feeling comes over you,
when you see the silent candle burning.

Now you are no longer caught
in the obsession with darkness,
and a desire for higher love-making
sweeps you upward.

Distance does not make you falter.
Now, arriving in magic, flying,
and finally, insane for the light,
you are the butterfly
and you are gone.

And so long as you haven't experienced
this: to die and so to grow,
you are only a troubled guest
on the dark earth." ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"And I just want all of you to know that....People are gonna tell you what's important, people are gonna tell you what your priorities should be and what matters most, and they can confuse you....but, you know, only you can decide that, really. No one can tell you what matters most to you. And sometimes it's hard to stick to that, sometimes it's hard to live your life by what matters most to you but I can promise you that if you do that it is so worth it and you will feel a change." -David Archuleta 10/5/16

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"It is essential for us to welcome our grief, whatever form it takes.

When we do, we open ourselves to our shared experiences in life.

Grief is our common bond.

Opening to our sorrow connects us with everyone, everywhere.

There is no gesture of kindness that is wasted, no offering of compassion that is useless.

We can be generous to every sorrow we see. It is sacred work." ~Francis Weller

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"Are you holding yourself hostage?

Everything we draw into our lives, be it a physical thing, a thought or a person, we are storing it, carrying it and being affected by the meaning we have given it.

Our old beliefs might tell us that giving something away when we no longer need it, is not a good thing. We might need it later.

There might be famine, we might end up in lack, therefor holding on, storing and cluttering our space is natural.

It is needed. It is safety. It is our burden to carry.

We are owned, by things." ~Hilde Larson

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

We are
Born like this
Into this
Into these carefully mad wars
Into the sight of broken factory windows of emptiness
Into bars where people no longer speak to each other
Into fist fights that end as shootings and knifings
Born into this
Into hospitals which are so expensive that it’s cheaper to die
Into lawyers who charge so much it’s cheaper to plead guilty
Into a country where the jails are full and the madhouses closed
Into a place where the masses elevate fools into rich heroes

Charles Bukowski
