Accept the Path

Neil Strauss

“The underlying cause of most unfulfilled lives is that we are simply too close to ourselves to see clearly enough to get out of our own way.”

“I used to think that intelligence came from books and knowledge and rational thought. But that’s not intelligence: It’s just information and interpretation. Real intelligence is when your mind and your heart connect. That’s when you see the truth so clearly and unmistakably that you don’t have to think about it.”

“If I want true freedom, I need to accept that the path leading there is going to be one of discomfort and vulnerability.”

It’s the Little Things

French Bulldog

The magic of life is so easy to forget. I’m thankful for all the dogs that serve as reminders. The little things are truly the big things! And life is a divine opportunity to play and have fun.

Some things in life are too good not to share. In this case, it’s someone. I have to share what my good friend Terry Singh is up to. I’m so proud of him! He’s been getting all sorts of press lately for a super-cool fashion line that he created.

The photos you see of Terry are by Nacho Guevara (1 & 2), Luca Morgantini (3, 4 & 5) and Andrey Gavrilenko (6). There is also a fantastic video of him on Facebook. It’s a must see!
Here is the link: www.facebook.com/watch/?v=255291201792268

You can also follow him on Instagram: @terrysingh.nyc

There is a Voice

rumi quotes poetry

“Wherever you stand, be the soul of that place.”

“Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.”

“And You? When will you begin that long journey into yourself?”

“Something opens our wings. Something makes boredom and hurt disappear. Someone fills the cup in front of us: We taste only sacredness.”

“There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen.”

“When you let go of who you are, you become who you might be.”

“You wander from room to room, hunting for the diamond necklace
that is already around your neck!”

“Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all of yourself.”

“Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames.”

Completely Unencumbered

spoon

“It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. Throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you. Trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly, on tiptoes and no luggage, completely unencumbered.”

Quote by Aldous Huxley

The Great Power

Joan Didion quote

“To free us from the expectations of others, to give us back to ourselves – there lies the great, singular power of self-respect.”

“Self-respect is a question of recognizing that anything worth having has a price.”

“Character — the willingness to accept responsibility for one’s own life — is the source from which self-respect springs.”
