The Purpose of Life

life transformation

“The biggest breakthroughs in consciousness occur when things are difficult; when we have a choice to fall to the worst of ourselves or rise to the best of ourselves.”

“Darkness is the only path to light. It is not our wonderful gifts that make us closer to God: it’s using our garbage to transform ourselves. This is the key that unlocks the door that opens to God.”

“Unfortunately, it is human nature for us to only learn and grow from a place of emptiness. It’s hard to learn when we are winning and on top of the world.”

“God never answers prayers. It is people who answer their own prayers by knowing how to connect and utilize the divine energy of the Creator and the God-like force in their own souls.”

“If I said it once, I’ll say it again: ‘We have the power to change everything.'”

“The whole point of all of this – why we are here, why the world is here, and why we have the political system and leaders that we do – is to achieve change. This is the purpose of life.”

Taste It, Enjoy It — Find Out

quotes by Anne Lamott

“Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor.”

“Your problem is how you are going to spend this one odd and precious life you have been issued. Whether you’re going to spend it trying to look good and creating the illusion that you have power over people and circumstances, or whether you are going to taste it, enjoy it and find out the truth about who you are.”

“I do not at all understand the mystery of grace – only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.”

“Everyone is flailing through this life without an owner’s manual, with whatever modicum of grace and good humor we can manage.”

“I am going to notice the lights of the earth, the sun and the moon and the stars, the lights of our candles as we march, the lights with which spring teases us, the light that is already present.”

“These days cry out, as never before, for us to pay attention, so we can move through them and get our joy and pride back.”

“Pay attention to the beauty surrounding you.”

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!
