I thought we could start a thread to add words we find that inspire us. No matter who says them, if it warms your heart, helps you get through the day, share them here and we will always have a bank of inspiration to turn to when we need a boost.

I'll start with something that was very empowering for me.

This one always makes me laugh. Sometimes we are quick to criticize others without reflecting upon our own actions, soÖ

to live happy
and peacefully
beyond the constriction of a
social design
and expectation
that would have me seek out material things
or experiences that would be
untrue to what keeps me
healthy happy surviving self managing
honoring me and mine
and 'the other'


in the west they hate and persecute limitation
in the middle east they are in denial that
they have it
in the far east they close their eyes and meditate
about it

Good one Mark!

I tried to find something good on attachment, but all I could find was this...

Quote:

"Those . . . who find delight in freedom from attachment in the renunciation of clinging, free from the inflow of thoughts, they are like shining lights, having reached final liberation in the world."
Now if I could just give up my attachment to doughnuts....

What all this means is, if I am always trying to find ways to get more money, buy more stuff, or that huge T.V. because I think I canít be happy without them then I learn to give up my attachment to them. If I can do that I can find happiness and contentment with what I have.

Get it?

that's part of it roland - part of what i mean - just go for the attachement - the pleasure -
the things that is the one you really want - that help you be happy and healthy - there are so many forms of this too - so i'm not sayin be like me -
so in other words -
there are good and bad ones -
not something or some life design -
some non-souled corporation is trying to get you to buy and live -
and perepetuate a forcefed lifestyle -

i dunno i am feeling kind of preachy -
sorry -

look at ernie ebbers today -
all that money and he still had to steal more??? that's not strong -
or mentally healthy -
or happy -
so maybe he going for the wrong thing and he not know it ?

dunno

yuch i feel like i am preaching i don't like that -

later
