Don’t worry about what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and do that. Because, what the world needs, is people who have come alive. …Dr. Howard Thurman

7:00am sunrise-NOT from 59th Place in LA for Daughter Jess' Birthday

To be an artist you have to have less of a stake in a stable, single identity; it’s how you function as an artist, that sense of being both inside and outside means part of you is outside. You’re less invested in the consistent self. In fact, the consistent single self is inimical to your creative process. And yet, the fact of inconsistency is experienced by many of us as we live in the world as a source of shame. “I can’t sustain, I go from one thing to another.” …David Milch

The next time you feel like God can't use you, just remember: Noah was a drunk, Abraham  was too old , Isaac was a daydreamer, Jacob was a liar, Job went bankrupt, John the Baptist ate bugs, Joseph was abused , Moses had a stuttering problem, Sampson had long hair and was a womanizer, David had an affair and was a murderer. Elijah was suicidal, Isaiah preached naked , Peter denied Christ, Paul was too religious. What do you have that’s worse than that? ...Rev. Leo

The Universe likes speed. Don’t delay, don’t second guess, don’t doubt. When the opportunity is there, when the impulse is there, when the intuitive nudge from within is there , ACT. That’s your job. …Joe Vitale

Always trust your instinct. Never doubt what you bring from the spirit world in your meditations. They call it heightened awareness, because your awareness is raised in that state. Do not doubt that, or else the magical formula conceive-perceive-achieve-believe is broken. Your reality base is broken. …Von Braschler

Creativity is part of the basic ground of the Universe. Somehow, some way, miraculously, new things emerge. I say out of Emptiness but you can call that creative ground whatever you want. Some would call it God or Goddess, or Tao, or Braham or Keter or Rigpen or Dharmakaya or Maat or Liu. The more scientifically oriented tend to prefer to speak simply of the “self-transcending” capacity of the Universe. That’s fine, it doesn’t matter. The point is, stuff emerges. Amazing! …Ken Wilbur
