It is God's play of light and shadow that has made certain creation appear as it does to us. When you realize this, you see it as a dream motion picture. ..Paramahansa Yogananda

In the light of a truly freed mind no prejudice can disguise itself as zeal, no bullying can masquerade as leadership, no pettiness can pose as importance. The freed mind will never confuse a sentimentality with a true emotion, an act of violence with an act of heroism, a slogan with a cause. Men and women with freed minds may often be mistaken, but they are seldom fooled. They may be influenced, but they can't be intimidated. They may be perplexed, but they will never be lost… Robert F. Kennedy

Rewriting separates the men from the boys. The first draft is love. The second is sex. The third is fun. The rest are all pulling teeth. Getting that seventh draft done is like dropping your beautiful vase on the floor and trying to glue all the million little pieces together to make it look good again. …Matthew Sand

The problem with “You should be doing better,” is that we become convinced that we don’t naturally excel or strive, seek or care. We come to believe that without tyrannical exhortation nothing good or excellent would ever happen. It is a lie. We are made to excel, strive, seek and care. If excelling, striving, seeking and caring were punished by death, we would do it anyway . ..John Anderson, Ph.D

Let us learn, then, from those in search of what they have not been able to find and hold in the press of humanity around them: peace of mind, gentleness of heart, calmness of spirit, daily joy. Those who are mastering the art of flying solo and soaring to their highest human potential. Who have come to understand that to know and to love and to be of value to others, they first must know and love and value themselves; that to find their way in the world, they have to start by finding themselves. …Lionel Fisher
