Return to yourself

“If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.” ~Masaru Emoto

A good reminder that we can always come back to the present moment here and now to find our way back to our strength when we’ve gotten lost.

Have you lost sight of how beautiful you are? Come back to yourself and re-discover it!

Your windows on the world

“Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in.” ~Alan Alda

How often do you take time to challenge your assumptions about the world? Do you even know what assumptions you are making on a regular basis?

Knowing what they are and challenging them regularly can open up whole new vistas to view.

Understanding fear

“What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.” ~Jiddu Krishnamurti

How often do you spend time observing and learning about your fear? What if learning to understand your fear gave you the freedom that all the attempts at running away from, controlling, or suppressing your fear have never delivered?

Open your eyes

“It isn’t always a change of scenery needed to make life better. Sometimes it simply requires opening your eyes.” ~Richelle E. Goodrich

It’s so easy to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else (or some other time or under some other conditions), but our focus on wishing we were elsewhere causes us to miss out on the beauty and happiness available to us right here in this moment in this place.

Take a moment right now to be fully present here and now to truly see and appreciate how much good is already present.
