The Number One way to prevent Truth decay is to use mental floss daily.

-Swami Beyondananda

The resting place of the mind is the heart. The only thing the mind hears all day is clanging bells and noise and argument, and all it wants is quietude. The only place the mind will ever find peace is inside the silence of the heart. That's where you need to go.

-Elizabeth Gilbert

This place where you are right now. God circled on a map for you.


The more you accept yourself, the more abundant you will feel. Like attracts like. When you identify with the inherent happiness of your Unconditioned Self, you attract experiences and people that are entirely compatible with how you feel about yourself. As you increase your self-acceptance, you let yourself accept more happiness, love, peace and abundance.

To love your enemies means to banish from your mind your fears, hates, jealousies, angers and resentments, all of which are self-created, for these are your real enemies.

-Dr Joseph Murphy

Cayce in trance described the mind as a dynamic layered structure capable of engaging this larger reality (spiritual) but in lawful ways. He used imagery of fields of force to describe a person or "entity." We were not just static chunks of flesh mounted on feet, answering to drives, traumas, and conditionings. We were first of all souls: invisible, unique vortices of energy and consciousness, beckoned into life by the divine and shaped by chosen and remembered values and actions. Because of our essential identity as spirit, we were in principle able to relate to the divine and its larger awareness.

-Harmon Hartzell Bro, A Seer out of Season: The Life of Edgar Cayce

I am a human becoming, help me to become!

-Handbook for the New Paradigm Volume One

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

-Marianne Williamson

In every community there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to heal. In every heart there is the power to do it.

-Marianne Williamson

When you get a hunch or intuition, don't just ignore it - acknowledge it. (Remember, you can still choose whether or not you wish to act on it; the first step is simply to recognize your intuition when it speaks to you.)

-Kathleen Vande Kieft, Innersource: Channeling Your Unlimited Self

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

-George Bernard Shaw, Playwright

To be a spiritual seeker we have had to leave the physical world. “Enlightenment” has been the reason for reclaiming spirit by denying the body – transcending form by leaving it. Thus, individual beings have become “enlightened” in the sense that they have fully realized their spiritual nature, but they have not fully enlightened their form. When they have eventually left their bodies, the world remained largely untransformed.

-Shakti Gawain, Living in the Light

I believe this is happening because we have reached a dead-end street with our “old world” relationships and externalized concepts of masculine and feminine. The old models and ways of doing things are too limiting for us now, and we have not yet evolved effective patterns to take their place.

-Shakti Gawain, Living in the Light

I believe that every form of relationship from the most traditional marriage to open relationships or homosexual or bisexual relationships, represent each being’s attempt to find their feminine/masculine balance within.

-Shakti Gawain, Living in the Light

What I’m actually saying is that we each need to let our intuition guide us, and then be willing to follow the guidance directly and fearlessly.

-Shakti Gawain, Living in the Light

By tuning into the intuition and allowing it to become the guidling force in our lives we allow the conductor to take its rightful place as the leader of the orchestra.

-Shakti Gawain, Living in the Light

Change happens not by trying to make yourself change, but by becoming conscious of what’s not working.

-Shakti Gawain, Living in the Light

In order to create the new world, we are being challenged to move back into the world form with full spiritual awareness. We need to recognize the discrepancy between our spirit and our form and then allow the spirit to transform the physical body, the mind, and the personality into a powerful and beautiful channel through which it can fully express itself.

-Shakti Gawain, Living in the Light

The spirit always tends toward expansiveness, depth, greater energy, and aliveness. The form (ego/personality) always tends toward what it perceives to be safety, security, and the status quo, which is usually a deadening experience.

If you are able to observe yourself without rationalization or judgment you will begin to notice that when you trust yourself and follow your energy fully, you feel better. Conversely, when you follow your old patterns of fear and holding back, you feel worse.

-Shakti Gawain, Living in the Light

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.

-Carl Jung, Psychiatrist

Kindness is more important than wisdom, and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom.

-Theodore Isaac Rubin, Psychiatrist

Believe in yourself and there will come a day when others will have no choice but to believe with you.

-Oscar Wilde, Writer and Poet

A difficult time can be more readily endured if we retain the conviction that our existence holds a purpose - a cause to pursue, a person to love, a goal to achieve.

-John Maxwell, Author and Speaker

One day at a time - this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone: and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.

-Ida Scott Taylor, Author

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

-Steve Jobs, Co-Founder of Apple Computer

Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.

-Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor and Philosopher

Every decision you make - every decision - is not a decision about what to do. It's a decision about Who You Are. When you see this, when you understand it, everything changes. You begin to see life in a new way. All events, occurrences, and situations turn into opportunities to do what you came here to do.

-Neale Donald Walsch, Conversations with God

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

-Harriet Tubman, Abolitionist

Love is a state of being not a state of feeling. It goes well beyond the realm of the emotions. It's an attitude of benevolence and kindness towards all creation, including one's self, at all times and under all circumstances. Love is the most powerful magnetic force in the universe.

-Carnelian Sage, Author

I have learned this at least by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours.

-Henry David Thoreau

People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges.

-Joseph F. Newton, Author

Whenever you're facing any form of resistance, gratitude has the power to quickly dissolve it. This is true whether the hindrance comes from inside of you or outside of you.

-Peggy McColl, Author

Do not wait; the time will never be 'just right.' Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.

-Napoleon Hill, Author

Our ultimate freedom is the right and power to decide how anybody or anything outside ourselves will affect us.

-Stephen R. Covey, Author and Speaker

We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.

-Marie Curie, Physicist

There is only one way in the world to be distinguished. Follow your instinct! Be yourself, and you'll be somebody. Be one more blind follower of the blind, and you will have the oblivion you desire.

-Bliss Carman, Poet

Living consciously involves being genuine; it involves listening and responding to others honestly and openly; it involves being in the moment.

-Sidney Poitier, actor

Perspective is an antidote to fear. Most things you fear will never happen, and even if they do, you can handle it.

-Michael Josephson, www.charactercounts.org

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity. It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.

-Melodie Beattie, Writer

Bless a thing and it will bless you. Curse it and it will curse you. If you bless a situation, it has no power to hurt you.

-Emmet Fox, Spiritual Leader

If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living.

-Joseph Campbell, Writer and Lecturer

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness, and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.

It is only when we realize that life is taking us nowhere that it begins to have meaning.

-P.D Ouspensky

If you cannot find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?


You may believe that you are responsible for what you do, but not for what you think. The truth is that you are responsible for what you think, because it is only at this level that you can exercise choice. What you do comes from what you think.

-A Course in Miracles

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.

-Albert Camus

You are not a human being having a spiritual experience. You are a spiritual being having a human experience.

-Dr. Wayne Dyer

I found that when I was in my illumined, wise self, I was calm, peaceful and content. This self lived at the core of my being. Strong, powerful, and clear, it was directing my life. It was the inner fire that had inspired my quest for truth. Through many direct experiences with this Self, I was surprised to find that it had been unharmed by anything I had ever gone through.

-Aurora Ariel PhD, The Quest

By healing my patterns, I found I was also clearing my family lineage with its history of pain. Finally, I understood why the planet looks the way it does, why so often we fail to bring our enlightened self into the equation. The world keeps reflecting the inner wound of humanity, while the Authentic Self remains lost beneath this programming.

-Aurora Ariel PhD, The Quest

The children of God are holy and the miracle honors their holiness, which can be hidden but never lost.

-A Course in Miracles

-Kevin Ryerson, Spirit Communication

Each master is a mandala to be meditated upon to reveal some inner aspect of your own self.

-Kevin Ryerson, Spirit Communication

For the value of the vessel, if you wish to contain it, is in its emptiness, so it can be filled again. Clean the vessel, for that is your physical instrument. Pour it out, for that is your mind. Fill it to the brim with waters that nourish, for that is your spirit.

-Kevin Ryerson, Spirit Communication

Each of you is a portal. You are a window upon the Akasha, the all-knowing. Collectively you are the consciousness of this planet and you are portals through which light streams forth and illumines this plane. You are the eyes and the ears and the manifestation of God upon this plane. You are the perceivers. You are the teachers. For it is your interactions with one another that convince you that you exist.

But how foolish of you not to know this, so therefore you are also students.

-Kevin Ryerson, Spirit Communication

Those who study alchemy know that, ultimately, the work is not the transmutation of elements, but the transmutation of self, and that the ‘philosopher’s stone’ is the consciousness they achieve, since it is through consciousness that all things become transformed.

-Kevin Ryerson, Spirit Communication

Meditation is merely contemplation of your own higher nature.

-Kevin Ryerson, Spirit Communication

Karma has only one value – to increase our understanding of our true nature as children of God. Once we understand who we are, we don’t need to create karma, either positive or negative.

-Kevin Ryerson, Spirit Communication

Enlightenment, or ultimate realization, is total liberation, total freedom.

-Kevin Ryerson, Spirit Communication

-Kevin Ryerson, Spirit Communication

When we hear our own truth spoken, it will resonate in our hearts and we will recognize it.

-Kevin Ryerson, Spirit Communication

The entities who speak through me are qualified teachers and are worth listening to as a source of information, but ultimately we have to heed our own source, our own inner guidance.

-Kevin Ryerson, Spirit Communication

-Lorna Byrne, Angels in my Hair

We have an awful lot of abortions in the world, but one must remember that even if a mother decides to have an abortion, that little soul already knows that its mother may do this and even knowing this that soul has already chosen this woman to be its mother – even if that means that the baby is only conceived and never actually born. The little soul has chosen the mother and will love her no matter what.
