Yes, and the journey seems to lead the uncovering of this truth - that I can only really know what I feel inside, just like not knowing an orange until I taste it.

Hmmm - hallelujah associated with broken - not sure that one resonates...

Loved your quote, read a couple of sites and couldn't find anything as positive or uplifting as yours, so off on a new tangent.

WOW!

This is so beyond the realm of my current reality. But the message is the same from all those on a spiritual path - beyond the differences of dogma.

"The last time when I was travelling, a rich man was sitting next to me and he said: "Mother Teresa, why don't you give the rod to fish instead of the fish to eat?" And I said to him: "The people to whom I give the fish to eat cannot stand; they are the lepers, the dying, the mentally ill. When they are strong enough to hold the rod, I'll send them to you, and will complete the work and together do something beautiful for God." (Mother Teresa, Where There Is Love, There Is God, Page 276-277)

Loved your quote. What came to mind was "love is everywhere".
I chose the Goodreads response and have spent such a lovely time with a page full of amazing quotes and met this new friend - a kindred spirit.

“Come, friends.
Come with your grief.
Come with your loss.
Carry all the pieces of your heart
and come sit with us.
Bring your disappointments
and your failures.
Bring your betrayals
and your masks.
We welcome you no matter
where you come from
and what you bring.
Come and join us
at the intersection of
acceptance and forgiveness
where you will find our
house of love.
Bring your empty cups
and we will have a feast.”
- Kamand Kojouri

Looked up the section referring to to the right time and found nothing that equaled this in my experience. Everything is timed perfectly if I let go of trying to arrange it when I want it. :)
And you my friend. I feel blessed.

I have no idea why I went through much of my life with seemingly no one who I could relate to spiritually - but slowly I found one or two and now my life is full of like minded people. This is such a blessing. Maybe I had to come to trust what my insides said, rather than listen to the words of others.

Ecclesiastes 3 King James Version

3 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

9 What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?

10 I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.

11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.

13 And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.

14 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.

15 That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.

16 And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.

17 I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.

18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.

19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.

20 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.

21 Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?

22 Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?

Kali, you find the most beautiful people ... thank you again - Love is so Inclusive, so Universal. There is nothing to separate one from another not colour, creed, religion. Nothing

“Always run after opportunities to create peace between people, to find ways to bridge differences, please. Because as long as one person continues to feel separation…
…we'll all still feel it.
Close the space between you and someone today. Seeing their essential goodness helps a lot.”

- Yehuda Berg

PS I still have trouble seeing our essential goodness, it is not something I have experienced
only something I read of and accept. What I see is our inner pain and suffering that make us the way we appear to be sometimes.

Here's to encouragers - it takes courage and insight!

"Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair.

How lovely, and bring out their own particular flavour. Such a helpful insight. :)

“Be an Encourager: When you encourage others, you boost their self-esteem, enhance their self-confidence, make them work harder, lift their spirits and make them successful in their endeavors. Encouragement goes straight to the heart and is always available. Be an encourager. Always.”

I found Moliere in the goodreads page (goodreads is my favourite) and I had previously thought of him - if I have thought of him at all - as being rather dry and dull. I do not believe I had ever read anything by him, just a name.

The whole page was a delight - one after another some serious, some brought laughter and all of them so very real. Thanks again Kali - another like mind who has lived and loved this path.

I was in my teens when it got that bad.

Gotta go look for a quote. be back ....

The Power of Persistence

“I have not failed 10,000 times. I have succeeded in proving that those 10,000 ways will not work,” he said of his method of experimentation. “When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work.”
- Thomas Edison.

Just loving this one. What tenacity and character to keep on keeping on!

“Why do you want to shut out of your life any uneasiness, any misery, any depression, since after all you don't know what work these conditions are doing inside you? Why do you want to persecute yourself with the question of where all this is coming from and where it is going? Since you know, after all, that you are in the midst of transitions and you wished for nothing so much as to change. If there is anything unhealthy in your reactions, just bear in mind that sickness is the means by which an organism frees itself from what is alien; so one must simply help it to be sick, to have its whole sickness and to break out with it, since that is the way it gets better.”

- Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Really needed to read this today. To remind myself that whatever comes in a day is part of my path. Depression has been part of the my path since before birth. My mother was having shock treatment to try and help her way back over sixty years ago.

What a lovely idea. I am blessed with a few close friends - not close necessarily in contact - but close in heart. Somewhere in the Bible it speaks of being of one mind.

Not necessarily, I now understand, that we all belong to the same "anything" in the physical world - but that we are of the same heart and outlook.

I value you your friendship also - blessed that we met. You make the days brighter just by knowing that you are part of my life.

Guess that may sound a bit mushy - but having true friends is like gold dust to me. emoticon

Yes, guess my thoughts were centered on those whom I trust myself to be absolutely real with.

Currently I am moving along the path of hearing what I say and also now what I am thinking. I have never been into the realm of listening to my thoughts before and it is amazing what I am discovering about the person I am (as in the dark side). Very pleased that this awareness did not come to me before I loved and accepted myself as I am. I am now realising more and more clearly how very ordinary and just like everyone else I am. Always thought I was more "spiritual". Have been aware of spiritual pride as a big issue in my life (or rather my ego) but now the realisation of very 'ordinaryness' there seems much less to complain of in others now I am coming to see my own thoughts. (it doesnt stop me from doing it - yet - but am working on it). How wonderful to know we are loved and accepted exactly as we are - wherever we are.

“To be fully seen by somebody, then, and be loved anyhow - this is a human offering that can border on miraculous.”

Oh my friend, so are you.

I have not heard of many of the people whose quotes you use and I so enjoy discovering new treasures.

When I looked up 'Goodreads' today to discover William Hazlitt, I discovered a page full of gems that made my inner being sing with joy.

So hard to pick just one... it is seldom I find so many in one place with which I wholeheartedly agree. emoticon

Loving it Kali.

“We cannot control the way people interpret our ideas or thoughts, but we can control the words and tones we choose to convey them. Peace is built on understanding, and wars are built on misunderstandings. Never underestimate the power of a single word, and never recklessly throw around words. One wrong word, or misinterpreted word, can change the meaning of an entire sentence and start a war. And one right word, or one kind word, can grant you the heavens and open doors.”

"Namaste is a greeting of unity and acceptance
that recognizes the equality of all,
and pays honor to the sacredness of interconnection.
The sense of Namaste is

O I get it. I didn't know why you decanted wine - guess it is to aerate it.
Get the joke, both THE joke and yours. emoticon

When I read blender, I pictured a mixer (as the "featured video" was showing a cake recipe) and I saw emoticon (red) spilling over the sides of a bowl @ great speed. Since we have been given almost every aerator imaginable /www.wineenthusiast.com/accessories/
ae
rators/
as gifts, I love the idea of using a blender (or mixer).

"To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards of the simple life."

- John Burroughs

Love it - especially the idea of messes... I think that's why Hello Fresh and Blue Apron have taken off in the States.

"Wine lovers have known for centuries that decanting wine before serving it often improves its flavor. Whatever the dominant process, the traditional decanter is a rather pathetic tool to accomplish it. A few years ago, I found I could get much better results by using an ordinary kitchen blender."

Strolling through vege quotes this morning this touched my heart. So many wonderful memories and feelings about kitchens.

“But the kitchen will not come into its own again until it ceases to be a status symbol and becomes again a workshop. It may be pastel. It may be ginghamed as to curtains and shining with copper like a picture in a woman's magazine. But you and I will know it chiefly by its fragrances and its clutter. At the back of the stove will sit a soup kettle, gently bubbling, one into which every day are popped leftover bones and vegetables to make stock for sauces or soup for the family. Carrots and leeks will sprawl on counters, greens in a basket. There will be something sweet-smelling twirling in a bowl and something savory baking in the oven. Cabinet doors will gape ajar and colored surfaces are likely to be littered with salt and pepper and flour and herbs and cheesecloth and pot holders and long-handled forks. It won't be neat. It won't even look efficient. but when you enter it you will feel the pulse of life throbbing from every corner. The heart of the home will have begun once again to beat.”

- Phyllis McGinley

PS : Still make soup and sauces like this - delish.

I am only just starting to realise who I am and what I want and feel. It seems kind of like layers on layers to me. I seem to recognise when I am not being real these days - maybe we never stop. I am so grateful I was real with the doc this week. :)

“Don't let the expectations and opinions of other people affect your decisions. It's your life, not theirs. Do what matters most to you; do what makes you feel alive and happy. Don't let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. If you let others tell you who you are, you are living their reality — not yours. There is more to life than pleasing people. There is much more to life than following others' prescribed path. There is so much more to life than what you experience right now. You need to decide who you are for yourself. Become a whole being. Adventure.”
- Roy T. Bennett

I am not sure I've found the "authentic" self as I still wear my various 'masks' - work, various social faces, family, etc.
I have to emoticon as I've watched the carefully trained social governors fall away as we age.

'When our authentic self doesn't work in the world, we create a false self which lets us feel safe and accepted--but at significant cost. The great psychoanalytic theorist Donald Winnicot said, 'Only the true self can be creative and only the true self can feel real." I would add that only the true self can bear the risk of deep intimacy.'"
