“There are two ways to simplify your life.
One way is eliminating the things from your life that don’t really matter, until you are left with what you need.
This is the rational way to proceed, and it works. Experts and practitioners speak of it with authority. There are steps to take and things to accomplish and ideas to exchange. You can really get somewhere this way.
The other way is the art of filling your life with what you love most in the world. Love has a strange emancipating power that lets everything else fall away.
Your heart allows you to sense this mysterious force. In some way, Love has the power to displace many things.”

“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.”
All quotes by Rumi
“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
If my life where a movie or book, what would I want see happen for the main character?
If my death was in six weeks, what would I make top priority?
