This thread was so good I had to join in. I am new here and have been searching a long while for someplace I can be myself and also explore avenues for healing such as spirituality, with others. This site has got everything! I am so happy to have found it...here is a fave quote from one of my most beloved spiritual teachers--Vernon Howard....

"STOP FIGHTING

Troubled human beings have everything exactly backward.
They think that by winning they can stop fighting. The
opposite is true. By ceasing to fight, you win - but
what you win is superior and different from what was
imagined. A man believes he can end the terrible inner
battle by winning wealth or power or endless sexual
experiences. If winning them he is dismayed to find
that the battle is not over; he must continue the weary
fight. His despair is overwhelming, for his dream has
turned into a nightmare of compulsive craving.
Stop fighting and you win.

Stop fighting and you end the illusion that you must win.
You have already won, but you do not understand what this
means. Find out."

and here are a couple of "originals" (ie by me)

"The meek may inherit the earth...but someone's going to contest the will."

"If God is your co-pilot....the wrong person is flying."

Looking through an old journal entry, I saw this:

"walk down a dark hallway when you leave your room and you will stumble for a while until you turn a corner and a light from another source will be a guide to where you are going. When you turn around the path behind you is not as dark as you thought or perceived it when you began. You can see the light in your room where you have been and the path back is lighted and not as dangerous as when you left it."

Quote:
Understanding and compassion are very powerful sources of energy.

They are the opposite of stupidity and passivity.

If you think that compassion is passive, weak or cowardly, then you don't know what real compassion is.

If you think that compassionate people do not resist and challenge injustice you are wrong.
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

When I dance, I dance; when I sleep, I sleep; yes, and when I walk alone in a beautiful orchard, if my thoughts drift to far-off matters for some part of the time, for some other part I lead them back again to the walk, the orchard, to the sweetness of this solitude, to myself.
~ Montaigne

Loc: I would like to know also
O'rose, thou art sick;
The invisible worm
That flies in the night
In the howling storm:

Has found out thy bed
Of Crimson joy;
And with his dark secret
Does thy life destroy.

William Blake

Search for a discipline within freedom!

Don't let yourself be governed by formulae drawn from decadent philosophies: they are for the feeble-minded.

Listen to no one's advice except that of the wind in the trees. That can recount the whole history of mankind...
