" Forgiving others is a tough path to hoe, I find it easier to do when finding a similar fault within myself. Then the joy is twofold, forgiving the other and myself at the same time. This brings a whole different experience. Understanding of another comes when it becomes clear to me that similar thoughts and feelings are within myself. A feeling akin to love and affection comes for the person I blamed and feared."

Thank you ladies for sharing my day. emoticon

“I don't know if I continue, even today, always liking myself. But what I learned to do many years ago was to forgive myself. It is very important for every human being to forgive herself or himself because if you live, you will make mistakes- it is inevitable. But once you do and you see the mistake, then you forgive yourself and say, 'Well, if I'd known better I'd have done better,' that's all. So you say to people who you think you may have injured, 'I'm sorry,' and then you say to yourself, 'I'm sorry.' If we all hold on to the mistake, we can't see our own glory in the mirror because we have the mistake between our faces and the mirror; we can't see what we're capable of being. You can ask forgiveness of others, but in the end the real forgiveness is in one's own self. I think that young men and women are so caught by the way they see themselves. Now mind you. When a larger society sees them as unattractive, as threats, as too black or too white or too poor or too fat or too thin or too sexual or too asexual, that's rough. But you can overcome that. The real difficulty is to overcome how you think about yourself. If we don't have that we never grow, we never learn, and sure as hell we should never teach.”

- Maya Angelou

Here's to acceptance!

Thanks. My sons are in there 20's now but Pooh's child like simplicity is soothing.

I find that fear during social interactions knock me out of the present so quickly it is faster than breathing. My quote is for me to help deal with that.

Yes, isn't that just the way of it.
So very grateful to be on the way that is right for me.
It is always good to meet those along the way on a similar path.

Just a little something we share..... I have my shower all plastered with Pooh stickers.
I did this about 15 years ago "for the grandkids".

Haha, it was always for me really. I love it still. emoticon

One of my all time favourite tv programmes. Some of the quotes still come to me - now with meaning. I was also a David Carradine fan - guess I linked him with the role.

Me too. Also that courage is not absence of fear. But going forward anyway.

“To 'see both sides' of a problem is the surest way to prevent its complete solution. Because there are always more than two sides.”
- Idries Shah, Reflections

I like this quote. I remember a 'mentor' telling me one time that there is always at least a third way. Look for the third way before making the decision. It is something that has been very helpful in my life.

I often cannot see myself, which is something I am praying about lately, especially with people who I think are nothing like me. However although it may express differently it is I do believe arrogance. It is a quality I had never really considered in myself.... but I am being shown in many ways lately that it is very much present.

"The more the self learns, the more it overlooks the evil in others. It does not mean that the evil is not in others; it only means that one finds in oneself the enemy which one was seeing outwardly. And the worst enemy one was faced with in outer life one finds to be in one's own heart. It makes one feel humiliated, but it teaches the true lesson: one finds oneself having the same element which one wishes to resist in another."

Beautiful painting (it takes my breath away. :) Is it like that often. The vastness of it, kind of like a fish eye lens. If I were a photographer I would use them all the time - find those pictures really stunning. Like being surrounded by the scene. :)
Also love the words. People who say these things must have had, and to those who are living still have the beautiful "inner head"thoughts. emoticon

Thanks ladies, I so appreciate your quotes and words.

Thich Nhat Hanh/Quotes
People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.
We have to walk in a way that we only print peace and serenity on the Earth. Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.

Just home from my walk and did some gardening. Such a lovely almost spring morning.
I had dug up some ground, did a bit of weeding and then found 6 or 7 new plants that needed to be put ion a new spot. I am just thinking. I have given them compost and bedded them in as well as I can. Now that is all I can do, except water them if they need it.
From here on in the process is in laws of Nature. How wonderful to sow things in winter and watch them grow and flourish in their season.

Life is so simple - Ego makes it so full of self in thought, sometimes it is hard to see the wood for all these jolly trees in my head. emoticon

Someone says "I think I am a cloud, when I am really the sky". It seems more and more clear to me that thoughts are the clouds. Without them..... clear blue sky all the way.

Today I am going to say my own quote. It is true today. Life is like exploring an unknown land, we never know what is just round the corner. (That's not the quote.) emoticon

I have spent all my life travelling, trying to find out what IT was. Searching as for hidden gold, all the things they say and here this morning right now today a friend newly on the meditation path was sharing with me about her experience of just being so content with following her breath.
I did that many years ago, and since then have "progressed" in meditation seeking enlightenment. That was the goal really. Oneness with God. I was pursuing this final treasure, as I saw it. Today I realised while my friend was speaking that I have had the treasure all along and just did not see what I already had. I have no idea really what enlightenment is - as those who have it do not seem to be able to describe it really, or how to get it.
I am thinking now that perhaps all the seeking and struggling is necessary for some of us to see what is there all the time - all that was missing was that I couldn't see it.
These flashes of understanding and insight do seem to come, and alas just as soon vanish. There seems to be no way that I have found to hold on to them. So just for today I feel blessed, enjoying the butterfly which has settled on my hand.

Oh that is so it in another way Poohbear. How amazing you read that quote today. I feel so grateful when all those who seek God, in whatever way, find the connections with each other rather than the differences.

Yes, so good. Have been hearing it lately from diverse sources. We need to live and be who we are in order to keep moving forward.
In fact there is a quote by Osho that says do whatever, whatever you want to do with all your heart, follow where it leads. Being good (as we are mostly taught over this side of the world) does not bring God according to him.
Living life fully and moving on as we realise each new thing does not bring the lasting joy we are looking for. There is always something more we want to attain. When we run out of earthly things, we are ready, willing and able to move on to the next phase of our journey.

Trying to be good to please God ... according to Osho... is stultifying and does not produce spiritual growth.

That is not a quote..... but just my understanding of what I read.

This wasnt it - but it is a now programme. And this struck me today.

“…feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear, instead of being bad news, are actually very clear moments that teach us where it is that we’re holding back. They teach us to perk up and lean in when we feel we’d rather collapse and back away.
They’re like messengers that show us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we’re stuck. This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it’s with us wherever we are.”

Oh Kali, loving your quote.

Not sure what is going on in your part of the world and not even in my own - I have to add.
I have not watched the news or bought a paper for years. All I hear is what others tell me.
It may be sticking my head in the sand, really dont know, but I sure am so happy and peaceful with my little part of the world. I know all the stuff that goes on around out in the world, but to me adding my fear to it, would not help at all, and certainly not help me. Never was a political animal though and I realise my attitude drives some people nuts.

Ill pop off and find one for today and come back. x

++++++++++++++++++++

Another soul-mate. Thank you for introducing us Kali. emoticon

"...So I will not talk about fear. I will help you to love more – and fear disappears as a consequence. If you start working directly on fear you strengthen it, because your whole attention will be focused on it. It is as if somebody is trying to destroy darkness, and becomes focused, obsessed, with how to destroy darkness. You cannot destroy darkness because it is not there in the first place. Note the fact that darkness is there – and then start working on how to bring in light.”

The words from all these special people who live what they talk about is so inspiring and so much all a part of one great story.

Don't be afraid of experience, because

Thank you ladies for your beautiful thoughts

“When you have gone beyond thinking, and if you can still remain alert, aware, as if one is fast asleep but still alert—deep down at the very core of one’s being a lamp goes on burning, a small candle of light—then you will see your original face. And to see your original face is to be back in the Garden of Eden.”

Welcome home Kali,

“Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.”

- Pema Chödrön

Thank you for introducing me. I looked up the Zen quotes on his pages - it is so simple and clear. This one struck me as I was reading through.

"Without accepting the fact that everything changes, we cannot find perfect composure. But unfortunately, although it is true, it is difficult for us to accept it. Because we cannot accept the truth of transience, we suffer."

- Shunryu Suzuki-roshi

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

Christian Bible

I read a quote the other day by Sri Ramana Maharshi which really made me think and it is true for me. "The most difficult thing for mankind is to do nothing". May not have quoted the words exactly. Just to allow things to happen and be as they are is not an easy thing for me. I want to resolve and fix everything so I can feel at peace. emoticon

Loving the quote Pooh Bear. It set me a-thinking as to how I feel the presence of God within myself and I realise it is much easier to describe how I feel when It is absent.

At those times, it is like knowing the sun is still up there even though I can't see it - so I just have to trust it is still there in spite of all things that would deny it.

Thanks Kali

“The greatest step towards a life of simplicity is to learn to let go.”

- Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

Something from Ramama Maharishi that I really clicked with is.

"The most difficult thing for a human being to do is to 'do nothing'"

I am working now on letting time pass before I respond to what is coming up rather than
leaping in with both feet - to help in a situation or to just get something sorted quickly. Waiting and doing nothing is far and away the most difficult thing. Looks like I amnot a procrastinator these days. I used to be. emoticon This is a different kind of doing nothing of which he speaks. It is refraining from the ego pushing me into Action..... procrastination is a different set of circumstances just realised. It is the ego that makes me procrastinate also. Same old story. The ego and The One.

Wonderful quote Wispy and I agree. While our thoughts clearly become our actions and character, a well 'turned' word can give so much meaning and punctuate an idea...

Oh yes, Kali.

“I think it ****es God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it. People think pleasing God is all God cares about. But any fool living in the world can see it always trying to please us back.”

Love this quote for so many reasons, not the least of which is the use of the word I have had to remove because of the regulations. It is such a joy filled, guilt free statement.

"Experiencing life fully this moment, as it is, is the goal. Living this may be enlightenment.
The journey is the goal. Each instant is the goal. Life itself is the goal. Being present in the moment is the goal. Every instant we spend in "being present" is the goal. So the only goal would be to be present in every instant."
