Clear your mind

“The only walls in your life are the ones that you have built yourself.
Clear your mind of clutter, congestion and conflict. Free your mind
of unproductive, nonessential thoughts about yourself and your life.”

~ Iyanla Vanzant

Blessed is he who has learned…..

“Blessed is he who has learned to admire but not envy,
to follow but not imitate, to praise but not flatter,
and to lead but not manipulate.”

~ William Arthur Ward

Sunday reflection . . . .Only in relationship can you know yourself,

Only in relationship can you know yourself, 
not in abstraction and certainly not in isolation. 

The movement of behavior is the sure guide to yourself. 
It’s the mirror of your consciousness: 
this mirror will reveal its content, the images, 
the attachments, the fears, the loneliness, 
the joys and sorrow. 

Poverty lies in running away from this, either in its sublimations or its identities.

#FridayFantasy . . . . putting it into practice.

Not having heard something is not as good as having heard it;
having heard it is not as good as having seen it;
having seen it does not as good as know it;
knowing it is not as good as putting it into practice.

A Wayside Sacrament

“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God’s handwriting ~ a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
