Inspiring

Welcome, sip some tea, sit back and read with an open heart and leisurely mind these words of wisdom that I have collected for your enjoyment. Please check back often as I will be adding to this page whenever I find inspiration that touches my heart, my soul. Newest entries will be listed at the top.

  • ‘Recognize that you have the courage within you to fulfill the purpose of your birth. Summon forth the power of your inner courage and live the life of your dreams.’  Gurumayi Chidvilasananda
  • ‘So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.’  ~T.S. Elliot
  • ‘Many writers who choose to be active in the world lose not virtue but time, and that stillness without which literature cannot be made.’ ~ Gore Vidal
  • ‘Learning how to be still, to really be still and let life happen – that stillness becomes a radiance.’ ~ Morgan Freeman
  • ‘In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you’ ~Deepak Chopra
  • ‘Swami Radha understood symbolism as a key to opening to the world around us, to interpreting different spiritual traditions, and to finding the Divine within. As human beings, we are walking symbols holding a central mystery.’ http://www.ascentmagazine.com/columns.aspx?columnID=127&issueID=37
  • ‘Real asanas and mudras are a catharsis, an expression, an overflowing. The more they overflow, the more weightless you begin to be. Then a day comes when you are completely weightless; a moment comes when you are not bound by gravity. Weightless! Only in this weightlessness does the flight of the alone to the alone take place. If you practice asanas there will be no catharsis, only suppression. That is the basic difference: if you practice asanas they will be suppressive, but if they come to you spontaneously they will be expressive, there will be a catharsis.’ http://www.osho.com/library/online-library-overflowing-asanas-catharsis-a3bb6cf0-f4b.aspx
  • ‘Inhale, and God approaches you. Hold the inhalation, and God remains with you. Exhale, and you approach God. Hold the exhalation, and surrender to God.’ ~ Krishnamacharya
  • “The attitude of gratitude is the highest yoga.” ~ Yogi Bhajan
  • “Have only love in your heart for others. The more you see the good in them, the more you will establish good in yourself…” ~ Paramahansa Yogananda
  • “ Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built.” ~ Rumi
  • “In stillness all conflict must end.” ~ Phillip Urso
