I identify with most of the things said here however I do not see myself as a world changer at all. :) I am just grateful that I am being changed.

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

- Rob Siltanen

Loving the quotes ladies, so good to hear. Fills me up in a different way, but something similar to my favourite foods.

Nice, Kali!

This may also be appropriate to all. Cory Booker's recent tweet:

"May we love more than judge, help more than criticize & never care so much what others think about us that we stop being true to ourselves."

What would the world be like it we all practiced acceptance - back in the stones ages I'm thinking. emoticon However it is a way of life I am enjoying these days. Yin and yang seem to fit together pretty darn well.

Your quote Night reminded me of another .... um I had it a minute ago... oh yes.

"Do not look at a cushion if you want to see the moon". It has guided me for many a long year since I first read it. Think it might be Rumi.... now Im going to have to check it out...

Be back in a tick.

PS. Cant find it, so most likely it is misquoted, or else little known. But the essence is the same.

So glad to find this thread! Wispy, I love Leonard Cohen too! And thanks esp for your Chief Seattle quote. :)

Friends are so important and I've been far too seclusive with mine.
I'm still too guarded to share, but know that too shall pass...

"I wrote to myself recently.
Live in your joy today.
Be authentic. Love yourself. First.
Love others from your own abundance.
Life Changes. Circumstances change.
Sometimes you try to fit your old way
of being into new circumstances
rather than becoming new yourself.
Embrace transformation as an opportunity.
And keep on writing love letters to yourself."

- Mary Anne Radmacher

How wonderful for me to discover rather later in life what real friendship is and I am so blessed to have found those who do not judge, just love me as I am and with whom I am free to be myself. My own unique and discovering myself along with those who are coming to know the real me.

“A friend is one to whom one may pour out the contents of one's heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that gentle hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.”

So agreeing with you. Even if I lose one source of it, it just pops up again in
a different person or place..... until I learn whatever it is I need to learn.

What a relief to discover it is all to help us reach a place of freedom.

Was reading things on a similar theme and this popped up after Oscar Wilde - which always makes me smile.

"Be Yourself, everyone else is taken." Oscar Wilde

****************************************
************************

“The Paradoxical Commandments

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.”
― Kent M. Keith, The Silent Revolution: Dynamic Leadership in the Student Council

So good to read. All I have to do is be me. I do not have to react to anyone. All I ever have to do is respond as myself.

I found this as part of the same quote.... also not tagged with a name.

"...Think about the people in your life over the years. Whether they were there for a reason, a season or a lifetime, accept them and treasure them for however long they were meant to be part of your life.

And when they are gone, be thankful for the gifts you received from them when they were here - for a reason, a season or a lifetime." Anon

The first quote from yesterday, I love and the second one made me think.

It is inevitable that I will be hurt by other people - even those who do not in the least intend to hurt me. Love and loss at one time or another if for no other reason. And the thought of consciously choosing who to spend time with came as a new idea to me. As I think about it of course that is exactly what I actually do these days, but this is quite a new experience for me. I have spent a lot of time with people I did not actually like very much for a variety of reasons which seemed good at the time. I am so grateful for growth in learning and loving.

How we live life from our own perspective...
Not a quote, but this one struck me today:

I am a big Leonard Cohen fan. He is 81 now. His spirituality and insights delight me. He has a unique way of expressing all sorts of emotions that are part of being human.

Finding it hard to believe that David Bowie and Alan Rickman have both passed on. They are also part of my life and although a bit younger, I feel as if they belong to me era. They have both given me much joy in their own particular ways.

This one made me think today.

"Perhaps there will be no sin in a new heaven and a new earth is because we shall see that sin itself is not what we thought it was.

Perhaps the only way to enter heaven is to stop judging what is good and what is bad from our limited perspective.

Perhaps love does cast out all fear .... and sin.

Perhaps fear is only sin in disguise."

Anon

Absence of judgement sure does change the way I feel on the inside. Closest thing to heaven I have come across. emoticon

I was looking up freedom today, because for the first time in my life I am becoming free and more free to be me, to be my authentic self and no longer seek to please others for any reason at all, other than that I want to do it - not for any pay off. Just because I might happen to want to.

Words from a lifetime co-dependent who did everything to please others so that God would love her. Freedom from that burden is so wonderful I can hardly believe it. Free to love because I want to love because it makes me happy.

This quote really made me think. I like quotes and ideas and people who make me think.

“Some tourists think Amsterdam is a city of sin, but in truth it is a city of freedom. And in freedom, most people find sin.”

― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Great quotes ladies.

"On the day when it will be possible for woman to love not in her weakness but in her strength, not to escape herself but to find herself, not to abase herself but to assert herself--on that day love will become for her, as for man, a source of life and not of mortal danger.”

- Simone de Beauvoir

Loving it Kali, and so true and where my heart is today

On tough love...

― E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

Waiting for me this morning...

“I have never met a person whose greatest need was anything other than real, unconditional love. You can find it in a simple act of kindness toward someone who needs help. There is no mistaking love…it is the common fiber of life, the flame that heats our soul, energizes our spirit and supplies passion to our lives.”

—Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (1926-2004) Psychiatrist, Author

Lovely pic Kali and I second the quote. emoticon

“The traditional gender ideals of the strong-silent man who plays his cards close to his chest and the mysterious woman who disguises her feelings with coyness go so far as to make a virtue of being unavailable and secretive. But wholehearted intimacy can develop only where two people are equally forthcoming and self-revelatory. To take the risk of loving, we must become vulnerable enough to test the radical proposition that knowledge of another and self-revelation will ultimately increase rather than decrease love. It is an awe-ful risk."

Sam Keen, To Love and Be Loved

Have to add to this one, make sure that the person with whom you wish to be "forthcoming and self-revelatory" is emotionally available.

Kali what beautiful quotes..... Thank you.

"Be careful what you pray for because you might just get it."

No idea who said it, but I am not only smiling now at the humorous side of it now - I am understanding that The One does answer - but not necessarily in a way that is immediately recognisable.

Ah... the peace that comes from stretching and growing....

"Understanding yourself is a step towards inner peace, and a step nearer achieving your unfulfilled ambitions."

- Dr Harold Sala

or perhaps...

"In man's stone-dark heart there burns a fire that burns all veils to their root and foundation. When the veils are burned away, the heart will understand completely... Ancient Love will unfold ever-fresh forms In the heart of the Spirit, in the core of the heart."

- Rumi

Kali, so loving it. It is like you are inside my head sometimes. emoticon emoticon

“Comfort controls us. Fear scares us. To grow you have to overcome fear and go out of your comfort zone to be what you always wanted to be.”

- Debasish Mridha

I could have been living like this many years ago if I had been willing to explore pain rather than running away from it into my personal comfort zone of whatever form of peace offered itself, thinking this was the final answer.

When I have found peace however - for me that was not it. Not that which I thought I had been seeking. For me it brings a sense of complacency and a resting on my laurels so to speak. I didn't realise that what I really wanted was beyond peace and yet in a very surprising way brings peace along with it.

Glad you are back Wispy - hope to see you on the Silver Linings thread too.

"I truly believe that everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose. There are no accidents; we're all teachers - if we're willing to pay attention to the lessons we learn, trust our positive instincts and not be afraid to take risks or wait for some miracle to come knocking at our door."

Kali that is so what I needed to read. I have been missing this thread.
