“Love and hope are infinitely more powerful than hate and fury.” ~Heda Margolius Kovaly
Always choose love and hope. Even when it’s hard.
“Wisdom is knowing I am nothing, love is knowing I am everything, and between the two my life flows.” ~Nisargadatta Maharaj
Sometimes knowing who we are and what our place is in the grand scheme of things means being able to balance ourselves gently in the paradox of two great truths that appear to be in conflict.
How do you stay balanced inside this paradox? Do you have a tendency to find yourself leaning out of the paradox in one direction over the other?
“The Journey isn’t about becoming another person, but loving who you are right now.” ~Suzanne Heyn
We spend so much time and energy trying (unsuccessfully) to become someone else—some version of ourselves that we imagine to be “better”—when what we really need to be doing is learning to love ourselves just as we are.
“When we see the Beloved in each person, it’s like walking through a garden, watching flowers bloom all around us.” ~Ram Dass
By seeing each person we meet as the Beloved as we move through our days, we not only encourage each one to blossom into their best selves, we also create a more beautiful place for ourselves to live in.
