· All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won’t succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy.
· People you want the most approval get the least and people who need approval the least get the most.
· We are divine enough to ask and we are important enough to receive.
· Everything is perfect in the universe – even your desire to improve it.
· 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.
· I will grow. I will become something new and grand, but no grander than I now am. Just as the sky will be different in a few hours, its present perfection and completeness is not deficient. So am I presently perfect and not deficient because I will be different tomorrow. I will grow and I am not deficient.
· A mind at peace, a mind centered and not focused on harming others, is stronger than any physical force in the universe.
· There’s no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love. There is only a scarcity of resolve to make it happen.
· Transformation literally means going beyond your form
· If I could define enlightenment briefly, I would say it is ‘the quiet acceptance of what is’
· How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours
· When you squeeze an orange, orange juice comes out – because that’s what’s inside.
When you are squeezed, what comes out is what is inside.
· When you judge another you do not define them, you define yourself
· Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into
· Successful people make money. It’s not that people who make money become successful, but that successful people attract money. They bring success to what they do.
· You can never get enough of what you don’t want
· Anything that has been accomplished by any other human being in the physical realm is within the field of possibility.
· Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice
· Real magic in relationships means an absence of judgment of others.
· Our lives are a sum total of the choices we have made
· Relationships based on obligation lack dignity
· It is impossible for you to be angry and laugh at the same time. Anger and laughter are mutually exclusive and you have the power to choose either.
· Self-worth comes from one thing – thinking that you are worthy
· It’s never crowded along the extra mile
· ‘Heaven on Earth’ is a choice you must make, not a place we must find
· You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re along with
· Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterdayand avoiding today
· Present moment living, getting in touch with your ‘now’, is at the heart of effective living. When you think about it, there really is no other moment you can live. Now is all there is, and the future is just another present moment to live when it arrives. One thing is certain: you cannot live it until it does appear
· Did you ever notice how difficult it is to argue with someone who is not obsessed with being right?
