“We cannot even imagine the complex forces behind every event that occurs in our lives. You never know how and when any life experience will reappear. You never know when a coincidence will lead to the opportunity of a lifetime.” ―Deepak Chopra
“Peace does not mean an absence of conflicts; differences will always be there. Peace means solving these differences through peaceful means; through dialogue, education, knowledge; and through humane ways.” ―Dalai Lama
“The secret of peace is to accept yourself in all your magnificent beauty.” -Mimi Novic
When you do the right thing, you get the feeling of peace and serenity associated with it. Do it again and again.
–Roy T. Bennett
“I have lived with several Zen masters — all of them cats.” ―Eckhart Tolle
“When I say it’s you I like, I’m talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.” ―Fred Rogers
“Leave behind the passive dreaming of a rose-tinted future. The energy of happiness exists in living today with roots sunk firmly in reality’s soil.” ―Daisaku Ikeda
“Never worry alone. When anxiety grabs my mind, it is self-perpetuating. Worrisome thoughts reproduce faster than rabbits, so one of the most powerful ways to stop the spiral of worry is simply to disclose my worry to a friend… The simple act of reassurance from another human being becomes a tool of the Spirit to cast out fear — because peace and fear are both contagious.” ―John Ortberg
“If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known, that we are at all times ready for War.” ―George Washington
Hi, everyone. I fulled intend to share more with you today, but I’ve been sick since yesterday (sick enough that I called my doctor!), and today I woke up with the migraine from hell. I’m doing my best just to get through this day and, hopefully, enjoy parts of my weekend. Of course, the entire neighborhood has decided to become louder than a marching band while I try to keep my head from exploding. Figures.
Wishing everyone a relaxing, restful, illness and pain-free day, and weekend ahead.
