Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we learned here.
When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need.
Being a candle is not easy:
in order to give light, one must first burn.
The inspiration you seek is already within you. Be silent and listen.
Shine like the whole universe is yours.
I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can’t see from the center.
Someone has to be the luckiest person on earth…
Why not you??
~Zen to Zany
A powerful person is more interesting than a pretty one.
Life is filled with suffering, but it is also filled with many wonders, like the blue sky. Do we need to make a special effort to enjoy the beauty of the blue sky? Do we have to practice to be able to enjoy it? No, we just enjoy it. Each second, each minute of our lives can be like this.
~Thich Nhat Hanh
I want to feel my life while I’m in it.
