Good morning, this is God

Good morning, this is God.
I will be handling all of your problems today.
I will not need your help.
So have a miraculous day. ~Wayne Dyer

In mathematics, two angles that are said to coincide fit together perfectly. The word coincidence does not describe luck or mistakes. It describes that which fits together perfectly. ~Wayne Dyer
The only difference between a flower and a weed is judgement. ~Wayne Dyer
Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves, without any insistence that they satisfy you. ~Wayne Dyer
By being peaceful, quiet, and receptive, you pattern yourself in the image of God, and you regain the power of your Source. ~Wayne Dyer

The power of imagination makes us infinite. ~John Muir

The power of imagination makes us infinite. ~John Muir

Without this playing with fantasy no creative work has ever yet come to birth. The debt we owe to the play of the imagination is incalculable. ~Carl Jung

I bet that reality will end up turning out to be more fascinating and unexpected than we've ever imagined. ~Donald Huffman

I love fishing. You put that line in the water and you don't know what's on the other end. Your imagination is under there. ~Robert Altman

Surprise yourself every day with your own courage

Surprise yourself every day with your own courage. ~Denholm Elliott

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. ~Dr. Wayne Dyer

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate; our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children we do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. ~Marianne Williamson

Inside what scares you lies what frees you


The sweet love between the moon and the deep blue sea...Jimi Hendrix

Never dull your shine for somebody else

Don’t believe everything you think. ~Marci Shimoff

There is a thought in your mind right now. The longer you hold on to it, the more you dwell upon it, the more life you give to that thought. Give it enough life, and it will become real. So make sure the thought is indeed a great one. ~Ralph Marston

Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away. ~Henry David Thoreau

Never dull your shine for somebody else. ~Tyra Banks

Most of us are in touch with our intuition whether we know it or not

Most of us are in touch with our intuition whether we know it or not, but we're usually in the habit of doubting or contradicting it so automatically that we don't even know it has spoken. ~Shakti Gawain

A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown. ~Denis Waitley

Mindfulness means moment-to-moment, non-judgmental awareness. It is cultivated by refining our capacity to pay attention, intentionally, in the present moment, and then sustaining that attention over time as best we can. In the process, we become more in touch with our life as it is unfolding. ~Myla & Jon Kabat-Zinn

Someone you haven't even met yet is wondering what it'd be like to know someone like you



Someone you haven't even met yet is wondering what it'd be like to know someone like you. ~Unknown

When you are aware that you are the force that is Life, anything is possible. Miracles happen all the time, because those miracles are performed by the heart. The heart is in direct communion with the human soul, and when the heart speaks, even with the resistance of the head, something inside you changes; your heart opens another heart, and true love is possible. ~Don Miguel Ruiz

Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple. ~Regina Brett

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. ~Albert Einstein
You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space. ~Johnny Cash

In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities. In the expert’s mind, there are few



I would rather have a mind opened by wonder than one closed by belief. ~Gerry Spence

In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities. In the expert’s mind, there are few. ~Suzuki Roshi

There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. Yet that will be the beginning. ~Louis L'Amour

Before the beginning of great brilliance, there must be chaos. Before a brilliant person begins something great, they must look foolish in the crowd. ~I Ching

With the drawing of this Love and the voice of this Calling
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive at what we started
And know the place for the first time ~T.S. Eliot

Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life

Those who are willing to be vulnerable move among mysteries. ~Theodore Roethke

When we form heart-centered beliefs within our bodies, in the language of physics we're creating the electrical and magnetic expression of them as waves of energy, which aren't confined to our hearts or limited by the physical barrier of our skin and bones. So clearly we're "speaking" to the world around us in each moment of every day through a language that has no words: the belief-waves of our hearts.
In addition to pumping the blood of life within our bodies, we may think of the heart as a belief-to-matter translator. It converts the perceptions of our experiences, beliefs, and imagination into the coded language of waves that communicate with the world beyond our bodies. Perhaps this is what philosopher and poet John Mackenzie meant when he stated, "The distinction between what is real and what is imaginary is not one that can be finely maintained ... all existing thing are ... imaginary. ~Gregg Braden

Letting go of fear is living luxuriously. ~Michael Bray

Open to me, so that I may open. Provide me your inspiration So that I might see mine. ~Mevlana Rumi

Letting go of fear is living luxuriously. ~Michael Bray

Trust thyself. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Not knowing that we can be loved for who we truly are prevents us from trusting in love itself, and this in turn causes us to turn away from life and doubt its benevolence. ~John Welwood

Meditation helps me feel the shape, the texture of my inner life. Here, in the quiet, I can begin to taste what Buddhists would call my true nature, what Jews call the still, small voice, what Christians call the holy spirit. ~Wayne Muller

Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. ~Berthold Auerbach

I am thankful the most important key in history was invented. It's not the key to your house, your car, your boat, your safety deposit box, your bike lock or your private community. It's the key to order, sanity, and peace of mind. The key is 'Delete.' ~Elayne Boosler

No, no, you're not thinking; you're just being logical

The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. The opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth. ~Niels Bohr

My soul is the bridge between spirit and body and, as such, is a uniter of opposites. ...Without soul at center, I would either transcend into spirit or become mired in matter. ~Marion Woodman

God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches by means of opposites, so that you will have two wings to fly, not one. ~Mevlana Rumi

No, no, you're not thinking; you're just being logical. ~Niels Bohr

The mark of your ignorance is the depth of your belief in injustice and tragedy. ~Richard Bach

Perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses, only waiting to see us, once beautiful and brave. Perhaps everything terrible in our lives is, in its deepest being, something helpless, that wants help from us. ~Rainer Maria Rilke

The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances; if there is any reaction, both are transformed. ~Carl Jung

Everything in life that we really accept undergoes a change. ~Katherine Mansfield

It is the tension between creativity and skepticism that has produced the stunning and unexpected findings of science. ~Carl Sagan

You are here to enable the divine purpose of the universe to unfold. That is how important you are. ~Eckhart Tolle

Learning how to be kind to ourselves, learning how to respect ourselves, is important. The reason it's important is that, fundamentally, when we look into our own hearts and begin to discover what is confused and what is brilliant, what is bitter and what is sweet, it isn't just ourselves that we're discovering. We're discovering the universe. ~Pema Chodron

I never knew how to worship

I never knew how to worship until I knew how to love. ~Henry Ward Beecher

Love is the song of the soul singing to God. It is the balanced rhythmic dance of planets - sun and moon lit. ~Paramahansa Yogananda

I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it. ~Harry Emerson Fosdick

We are people who need love

We are 
People who need to love, because 
Love is the soul's life, 
Love is simply creation's greatest joy. ~Hafiz


Most people are so busy knocking themselves out trying to do everything they think they should do, they never get around to do what they want to do. ~Kathleen Winsor


What we really want to do is what we are really meant to do. When we do what we are meant to do, money comes to us, doors open for us, we feel useful, and the work we do feels like play to us. ~Julia Cameron


I am convinced that the deepest desire within each of us is to be liberated from the controlling influences of our own psychic madness or patterns of fear. All other things--the disdain of ordinary life, the need to control others rather than be controlled, the craving for material goods as a means of security and protection against the winds of chaos--are external props that serve as substitutes for the real battle, which is the one waged within the individual soul. ~Caroline Myss

Run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal. ~Cheryl Strayed


Your journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don't think that you've lost time. There is no short-cutting to life. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time. ~Asha Tyson


Each person deserves a day away, in which no problems are confronted, no solutions are searched for, each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us. ~Dr. Maya Angelou
