“You are here to enable the divine purpose of the universe to unfold. That is how important you are.”
– Eckhart Tolle

“The purpose of life is a life of purpose.”
– Robert Bryne

“It’s [your Personal Legend] what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is. At that point in their lives, everything is clear and everything is possible. They are not afraid to dream, and to yearn for everything they would like to see happen to them in their lives. But, as time passes, a mysterious force begins to convince them that it will be impossible for them to realize their Personal Legend.”
– Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

“You’ll feel most on purpose when you’re giving your life away by serving others. When you’re giving to others, to your planet, and to your Source, you’re being purposeful. Whatever it is that you choose to do, if you’re motivated to be of service to others while being authentically detached from the outcome, you’ll feel on purpose, regardless of how much abundance flows back to you.”
– Wayne Dyer,
The Power of Intention

Life happens for us, not to us”
– Panache Desai

“The only real valuable thing is intuition.”
– Albert Einstein

“The people in the Indian countryside don’t use their intellect like we do, they use their intuition instead, and the intuition is far more developed than in the rest of the world… Intuition is a very powerful thing, more powerful than intellect, in my opinion. That’s had a big impact on my work.”  – Steve Jobs

“Self-importance is man’s greatest enemy. What weakens him is feeling offended by the deeds and misdeeds of his fellow man. Self-importance requires that one spend most of one’s life offended by something or someone.”
– Carlos Castaneda, Fire from Within

“I have come to believe that Creativity and Fear are in fact conjoined twins; they share all the same major organs, and they cannot be separated without killing them both. And you don’t want to murder Creativity just to destroy Fear! (People do this all the time, and it’s tragic….don’t do it.) You must accept that Creativity cannot walk even one step forward except by marching side-by-side with its attached sibling of Fear.”
– Elizabeth Gilbert

“Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it’s no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you learn nothing.”
– Eckhart Tolle,  The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

“It is not necessary to believe in God to be a good person. In a way, the traditional notion of God is outdated. One can be spiritual but not religious. It is not necessary to go to church and give money — for many, nature can be a church. Some of the best people in history do not believe in God, while some of the worst deeds were done in His name.”
– Pope Francis

“A human being is part of the whole, called by us “Universe”, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.  Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole [of] nature in its beauty. ”  Albert Einstein 1950

What drains your spirit drains your body. What fuels your spirit fuels your body.”
– Caroline Myss

“What you resist, persists”
– C.G. Jung

“E-motions are energy in motion. If they are not expressed, the energy is repressed. As energy it has to go somewhere. Emotional energy moves us as does all energy…..To deny emotion is to deny the ground and vital energy of our life.”
– John Bradshaw

“Repressed and suppressed feelings require counter-energy to keep them submerged. It takes energy to hold down our feelings. As these feelings are relinquished, the energy that had been holding down the negativity is now freed for constructive uses.”
– David R. Hawkins,
Letting Go:
The Pathway of Surrender

“What compromises our emotional energetic boundaries? The main causes are having our feelings discounted, absorbing other’s feelings, and holding immature beliefs. These situations can leave us with rigid emotional energetics, the type that make us feel alone in the world and out of touch with ourselves; permeable boundaries, which cause us to have feelings or craziness and erratic emotions; gaping boundaries, which can leave us emotionally overwhelmed and exhausted.”
– Cyndi Dale,
Energetic Boundaries

“Whenever we avoid conflict by keeping our feelings to ourselves, we do ourselves and others a disservice. This is a form of dishonesty and manipulation. We’re trying to control the other person’s reactions by controlling what we tell them. So, that means you’re being controlling if someone asks you if you’re upset and you say that you aren’t when you really are. You’re trying to keep him or her from being angry with you or from starting an argument with you. Or, you’re holding your feelings inside to prevent the other person from seeing that you are hurt.”
– Doreen Virtue,
Assertiveness for Earth Angels

“I think the hardest thing in life is to forgive. Hate is self-destructive. If you hate somebody, you’re not hurting the person you hate, you’re hurting yourself. It’s a healing, actually, it’s a real healing…forgiveness.”
– Louis Zamperini

“The principal task is to put spiritual foundations under both our child’s life and our own. This triggers a shift in the elemental way in which we relate to our children, with the result that their behavior automatically falls in line as they become aware of, and true to, who they really are. Behavioral changes are an outgrowth of a shift in the relationship.”
– Shefali Tsabary,
The Conscious Parent
